I was just finishing my work day today when I received an email from MindBodyGreen.com (one of my favorite websites) that they will be publishing an article I wrote for them...tomorrow! That is exactly the DAY AFTER TODAY! Less than 24 hours from now... You get the point!
One would think that I would be celebrating and running around giddy. While I am very excited, I am also a bit nervous. You see, I have had issues over the past few years that came to a boiling point in January that I have shared only with those closest to me.
Part of my process of healing was writing about my experience which felt great and was very refreshing. I took the plunge and clicked "send" to submit my article three days ago before giving myself the option to decide that maybe it wasn't a good idea.
So there it was, sent out into email land with no way of turning back. I figured it would get lost in the thousands of submissions and nothing would come of it. But I was completely wrong. They found it interesting and think it will be of benefit or interest to their thousands of daily readers.
So I ask everyone to please keep an open-mind about this very personal story of mine. My biggest fear originally was that people would judge be, but at this point, I really don't mind. If someone wants to label or judge me, that is their choice and I won't let it get me down. By going through what I did, a new and healthier version of Michelle has emerged. I learned so much about myself and it can only be of benefit in my health coaching practice as I can speak from experience and from my heart.
My biggest hope is that there are people out there that relate to my situation and hopefully seek the right kind of help before they hit rock bottom, like I did.
So stay tuned...I will share the article tomorrow on my Facebook page when it is published. If you haven't "liked" my Facebook page, you can do it here:
