Hola! I’m Carol. A Mexican living in London.
It has taken me a looong time to feel excited about my life. In the past I looked for my happiness in material possessions, and in following and pleasing the people around me. I was afraid of their judgement if I did what I really wanted to do. But not making myself a priority in my own life led to bad decisions, isolation and unhappiness. I knew something needed to change, but I was confused AF about who I really was or where to begin.
Once I made a decision to find help, things started to shift. Slowly but surely, I began to unravel. I began to understand myself, how I work and what makes me happy. From the outside it may look like I’m just a regular person doing regular stuff, and in many ways I am, but the difference is I have curated my life to include as much of the good stuff as possible, prioritising my happiness. Yes, I’m becoming that happy, healthy cliché my younger (and darker) self once mocked. And you know what? I f*cking love it!
I have to tell you though, it hasn't been easy. Or should I say, it’s not easy. Creating a good life is a process, not an output.
Let me give you an example
I am an over-thinker. I worry and stress too much. This is now a known error*. What does that mean in real life? It means that I am now able to spot when my thoughts are beginning to pile up. I can feel those little f*ckers popping up one after the other. But because I can spot this pattern, because I am aware of the problem, I can choose my response. I can choose to do the things that helped me combat my little army of thoughts last time. This enables me to feel in control of the issue. Understanding my ‘enemy’ makes it easier to deal with and come back to a quieter mind.
No, I don’t have 365 happy days a year but, I do enjoy where I am, growing, learning and developing. I know who I am and I’m excited about my life. I know how to put myself first and prioritise my own happiness and fulfilment.
Now I’m here to help you be who you want to be. I’m here to empower you to feel excited about who you are and to look forward to starting another day, another week, another month… to feel excited about your life.
To create a place where everybody feels free to be themselves. Where we have the tools to understand who we really are. Where we encourage each other to get out of our shells and show up as we really are. A place where we aren’t limited by the fear of being judged. Where we define what we want to do with OUR lives based on what we enjoy, instead of following someone else's recipe for a “successful” and “happy” life that has nothing to do with us. Where we can connect with other like-minded people and grow together.
