I’m going to tell you some big news that’s happening soon, but before I get to that, I want to share my birthday moment with you…
It was actually the night before my birthday. I was curled up on the couch, finishing a movie on bears… a mama bear and her two cubs. In my cozy yoga pants, all wrapped up in a blanket and my pink journal by my side. My last night of being 34. I didn’t want to go to bed just yet, there was a full moon out and I felt inner resistance about getting older… as if somehow, staying up late was going to change that for me. I was noticing some sadness about the aging process and I stayed with it and then smiled as I felt myself embracing my new age all the same. I suddenly felt filled with gratitude.
Then, it happened, a voice very loudly said to me (yes, in my own voice) , “Hey You… you are not getting any younger and either are the people you love, enjoy every single one of your moments this year. Be present with those you love like it was your last moments with them. Discern how you spend your time and who you choose to spend it with. Stop being so unhappy with yourself when you do stupid shit. Make a lot of mistakes. Build your team solid and plan for a huge future. Travel. Stop caring what people think of you. Stop judging yourself. Start loving yourself more deeply, Renee, and be confident… you got this. Nothing is permanent! Begin a brand new love affair discovering who you are.”
That was a huge download, I know. I grabbed my journal and began to write it down. After I got all of that written and I am pretty sure I missed some things, I also started to write about what makes me unmistakable and unique.
For the past several months, I’ve been digging pretty deep over here redefining how to best serve all of you.
I want to stand Naked before you and let you really see me this year.
I don’t mean literally in my birthday suit, although you should know I’m not afraid of doing that of course. What I mean is that I’m not wearing any masks, I’m not hiding anything… I am naked.
I want that for you too and you know what else I want?
I have a desire that you have the entire road map to love yourself naked so you can see exactly where you are going before you arrive. The vision of yourself stepping forward and the compassion to show up so you can get a glimpse of what it is like to feel whole and in your body.
So I’ve been creating…
Programs to help you solve the problems that I am tired of seeing in the world every single day for people.
I feel many of you so deeply and I have the empathetic gift of often feeling people’s emotions and it truly brings me to tears every now and then to know a little about the pain you may experience with loving your body and your relationship with food.
I want to help you access…
*More time, organization and less stress
*A plan for wellness that fits you, specifically
*Acceptance of your body
*Loving yourself naked and weight loss in all the right places
*More energy and vitality
*More connection in relationships and with yourself
*More contribution and focus to create lasting habits that stick
*The part of you that yearns for change and follows through with clarity
These are just some of the things, I desire for you (and me).
Why not? Let’s have it all.
Before I tell you what we are creating over here, you wanna know what I woke up to on my 35th birthday?
My absolutely incredible boyfriend, Rob and my beautiful son Manny snuggling me in bed and singing Happy Birthday… then I was presented with a handwritten card from 5 year old Manny and another card from Rob, inviting me to take part in a scavenger hunt around my home that included little gifts, notes and cards from both of them. See the picture of the genius, thoughtfulness Rob created for me… He is so good. The hunt ended with a surprise trip to Manhattan (where we began our love affair).
Our love was really a surprise to me, I never saw him coming… but that’s a story for another blog…
