“Let it all go. Expect Miracles. Wait without anxiety. And know that the Universe has your back” – Gabrielle Bernstein
A call from a then stranger ultimately lead me to find my home at Spin Society.
Seems weird, right? When a friend of a friend shoots you a random message on facebook saying that they’ve followed your posts for a while and are wondering if you’d have a minute to chat. I wanted to just ignore it – this guy had no clue what I was going through and as if I’d have any time to deal with him when I could hardly take care of myself. Curiosity got the best of me, and minutes later my phone rang.
That call changed the course of my life in more than a few ways. That call changed my physical and mental health, it eventually allowed me to leave my corporate job, and it ultimately led me to find my home in Vancouver – Spin Society.
Previously profusely pessimistic, I put no weight in ‘the right place at the right time’, or the Universe. I thought it was all bullshit and for some reason was wired with negative thought patterns. Today, I could not be further from that mindset – thanks to Sean (the stranger).
He was the guy that for some reason felt that May 9, 2016 was the day that he would call me (now that I look back, that was 5 years to the day that I started my first corporate job – not a coincidence). Here’s the short of it: I hadn’t slept more than 3 ish hours a night in a decade, on that day I was on day 5 of not leaving my apartment (or bed), and I was experiencing stress induced fainting spells more frequently than I cared to admit. But on the outside I was a fun, loving, healthy, 20 something y/o. Sean wanted to help transition me to a high quality, natural supplement line, and then I could get on with living my “best life”.
What Sean’s call actually did was change my life. His high quality natural supplement line, Isagenix – changed absolutely EVERYTHING. Within days I felt a mental clarity that I’d never had, I started consistently sleeping 8 solid hours, and my energy was through the freaking roof.
Now, if you know me, you know that when I’m in I’m ALL in, and if I believe in something, I’m passionate AF about it. So what did I do? Quit my corporate job – obviously (LOL)…..all in, right? I had to begin right away, I had to start sharing Isagenix with everyone, and I had to deal with a lot of people closest to me thinking I was losing my freaking mind. I decided to jump, and I had one choice – to build some wings on the way down.
That leap of faith led me to a yoga studio, where I realigned a lot of my beliefs, I went to fckin work on who I was as a person, and I started to build a life that I was stoked to live. I was genuinely happy for the first time in a really long time.
Cue Cody and Lucy. (The right place at the right time..) Cody pretty much made me sign up for my first class at Spin Society – not even kidding, he pushed me out of the way of my computer and literally started creating my profile for me. A few months later, Lucy asked me to join the team. And as I sit here now (in the office at SS – obviously) I actually get emotional reflecting on the journey that got me here. There were a lot of dark days and tough decisions, but man I wouldn’t change any of it. Vancouver is home now. Spin Society and Isagenix are my PASSION – like, for life kinda passion. And this community is my FAMILY.
Trust the timing of your life, and trust that the Universe has you right where you’re meant to be.
