Why I Moved to Portugal

When I moved to Portugal, there was nothing wrong with my life in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In fact, things were pretty good in my world. I had fabulous friendships, a beautiful home, a connection to the land, and was even beginning a long-distance relationship with my bestie in California. 🥰 🥰 🥰

I mean, really! Why would I ever leave when things were so good? Why would I ever give up my sweet steady life in exchange for the complete unknown. Why would I ever let go of ease and step into the effort of being an immigrant.

Because, like an intuitive hit, like a knowing in my heart, and like a calling in my Soul—I knew that I was meant to go live in Portugal. I knew that it was time for me to step into my next evolution of growth. I knew that I needed to listen to what was authentically true for me.

Sure, could I have stayed cozy in my nest? Could I have been comfortable living in the familiar? Could I have remained happy where I was at?

Absolutely YES!

But, I am the type of person that listens to that voice inside me—the voice that I know is my highest wisdom—and takes action.

Because, the truth is when you ignore that voice, it only gets louder—often times to the point of needing to make a change or else!

Can you relate?

Do you hear a voice inside of you that is yearning for something more? Are you feeling a knowingness that it is time for a growth spurt? Have you sensed that it is your turn to make a significant life or work change?

Perhaps you are ready to swap your career focus for something more aligned. Or maybe you want to pivot your business so to have more life-work balance. Or possibly you want to ditch an old habit and commit to a healthy new one. Or what about relocating your home to be closer with nature. Or maybe you are ready to end an unfulfilling relationship that no longer serves you.

Whether you have clarity for what’s next or just intuitively know something needs to change—it is up to you whether you will listen … and ultimately take action.

It’s what Leaders of Love do.  

🤎 You listen to your inner voice.
🤎 You trust it is your highest wisdom.
🤎 You act and create with authenticity.

Even when it’s hard. Even when it’s scary. Even when it’s unknown.

Because you are that darn committed to your authentic Self and having a life that is true to you.  

Now I know first-hand this is not as easy as it sounds. And quite honestly, I could not have done most of what I have created in my life and career alone or without having support.

It’s why I have committed my private coaching practice to helping people like you to achieve their aligned vision and become a Leader of Love.

If you’re feeling ready to transform your Self personally and / or professionally—and you know that having support is necessary for your next-level of success—then you are invited to schedule a private complimentary call with me where we’ll discuss your vision, see what’s getting in the way, and if we’re a good fit, how working together will help you become the Leader of Love you are MEANT to be.
