Most of us were taught not to act on our dreams because we needed to be “realistic.” “Follow the rules, have a secure job, live a normal life.”
But what does that really mean anyway?
Deep inside you know that something is missing and you’re craving more. You don’t want to waste any more time or energy on doing things you don’t enjoy or being someone you don’t want to be.
I know exactly how you feel.

MY CHILDHOOD OF WITHHELD EMOTIONS.
I grew up in Eastern Europe in the 80’s behind the iron curtain. I also came from a family of unexpressed emotions. After a fatal car accident, my home was filled with anger and pain every day. My solution was to withdraw and keep my feelings to myself. In a way, I was emotionally illiterate as a child.
Despite of it all everything seemed to be okay from the outside. I was a good girl and a good student, earning two master’s degrees in Sociology and Social Policy. I always volunteered in my community, had great job opportunities and got married to my best friend. We even had our, albeit tiny apartment, which was a huge thing in Hungary at the time.
On one hand I was happy with my life, on the other I was constantly yearning, looking for something else, something more. I felt ashamed and guilty for not being grateful for everything I had.
Little did I know that I was craving to find myself, my own voice and to be real. Not (just) a good girl but the real ME. But I still cared more of what other people would say than dared to listen to my ever growing inner voice.
My late twenties was a difficult period of constant guilt and inexplicable dissatisfaction with my life. But over the years I became a good fighter. Eventually I realized that I can’t/don’t want to live the life of others’. I want to live my own life and take full responsibility for all of my actions.
Although everyone thought I was crazy, I divorced my husband. I turned my focus more and more onto personal growth and realized how disconnected I was from my own emotions. What I did changed my life forever. I started to forgive and fully accept people in my family but most importantly myself. It’s hard to put into words the profound effect of it all on my life. It was like my heart cracked open. As I let go of my emotional armor, I slowly let myself feel the raw emotions all the way through which was cathartic.
While living in Hungary I met a Canadian man online and after months of communication, we reached a turning point. We knew that without big decisions and sacrifices, our chances to create something together (or even just to give us a chance), were zero. After a year of traveling back and forth, I opened myself up to new possibilities.
At 27, I took a huge leap of faith and moved to Canada, leaving everything and everyone I knew behind. I can’t say it was easy and it was one of the biggest learning curves of my life. It not only made me see the world from a whole different point of view but through courage and determination I’ve found my soul mate, my love and my husband of 12 years.
Living in Toronto, I felt that it was okay to be myself for the first time in my life. This city opened me up and today I give myself permission to be who I meant to be in this world. Starting your life over as an adult is challenging. It took me years to make Toronto my home and to find my way back into my profession but it was such a worthwhile journey.
MOTHERHOOD – MY DEEPEST TRANSFORMATION
Looking back, I can wholeheartedly say that nothing transformed me as much as my pregnancy and becoming a mom. Since I became pregnant, I felt like I lit up from the inside out. I started craving healthier food and by the time my son was born, we changed to a dominantly plant-based diet. Yes, that means that our son is also enjoying the same diet since he was born.
A whole new world revealed itself to me when I attracted and opened myself up to new ideas from people like Brene Brown, Marianne Williamson, Wayne Dyer, Gaby Bernstein or Mastin Kipp, just to name a few. My inner work became even more intense, which lead me to life-altering realizations about acceptance, gratitude and self-love.
The more I worked on myself, the more my outer world mirrored that transition. Understanding that I create my world with my feelings and thoughts changed my life forever.
Now as a mom I am more committed than ever to write my own story and to create a life I dream for myself and for our son.
As a transformational life coach, nothing brings me deeper joy than seeing my clients go through beautiful transformations and unapologeticly going for their dreams.
