"Whatever you are not changing, you are choosing." -Laurie Buchanan
I'm Meisha, and I'm so glad you're here!
Why are you here? Right now?
Cozy up with me for a moment and I'll share with you why I'm here.
I was a good kid, I went to college, graduated with a degree in Statistics, focusing on Environmental Sciences. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life at that young age, although being a nature freak, I knew the environment was important to me. I thought, "There are statistics on everything, so why not Statistics? I'll figure out what I want to do with it later..."
I was 25 when I moved from North Carolina to California, after asking myself too many times, "Is this it?"
I became a Marine Fisheries Scientist in the breathtaking Monterey Bay. Fifteen years in, I found myself again asking, "Is this it?" My heart and soul felt empty, and I didn't know why. I felt stuck. "If I'm not doing this, what would I do?"
Thankfully, someone came into my life that led me to answering that very question. A contractor was hired to work with our agency to train us in conflict resolution and leadership, and boy was she impressive! Long story short, she became my life coach (and still is today).
I had never heard of a life coach, and I hired her anyway. After one session, I felt like I could move mountains! She opened my eyes to the possibilities, and I wanted more of that! I invested. I listened. I began to think differently. I experimented and started noticing changes. I learned that self-awareness is not only the key to change, but to transformation.
I started listening to my deepest desires and aligning my life with my core values. I began to discover the stories and limiting beliefs that were holding me back. I met my shadows and accepted myself fully for who I am and how I want to show up in this world. Now I help others be the leader of their own lives.
That is why I'm here.
Your thoughts create your reality, and you have a choice in creating exactly what you want in your life.
Change your mind, change your life.
