    “I just couldn’t handle the pain. I didn’t know what was happening, I was so young. I didn’t really know that pain that bad existed. I had never experienced anything like that up to that point in my life & that was my first experience with a migraine.”

    “I was calling in sick to work a lot more often than I would like to say I was.”

    “I would get headaches multiple days a week usually. I was getting a migraine at least once a month.”

    “I would sometimes have a headache for 3 days in a row. 5 days in a row. Up to 7 days in a row.”

    “The headaches were so bad, so frequent, so incapacitating that I honestly couldn't work.”

    “It was like I was living in this nightmare and I wasn’t able to wake up.”

    “I wasn’t going to stop until I didn’t suffer from headaches anymore.”

    “Sometimes you just need a breakdown.”

    “I stopped talking about my headaches so much. I stopped complaining about them so much. Yes, they were still there. Yes, I could still feel them. Yes, I was still in pain, but did I really need to bring down the vibe of everyone else around me?”

    “When you stop complaining about your health and talking about your health issues so much, you draw your attention away from them. You can focus more on other things.”

    “I had to make changes to my workspace set up and how I was working.”

    “Stress can definitely contribute to and trigger headaches.”

    “You can’t give up. You need to commit that you are going to find relief and you’re not going to stop until you do.”

    “Don’t be afraid to tell the other people in your life that you’re struggling with headaches and migraines.”

    “Rest as much as you possibly can.”

    “Pain is always there for a reason.”

    **Disclaimer: I am not a medical professional. I cannot give you medical advice. If you suffer from headaches or migraines, especially chronically, this is something you need to speak to your healthcare provider about. I am simply sharing my experience with chronic headaches and what helped me heal and recover from them.

    Highlights

    “Once I became an entrepreneur and started working from home, I started gaining weight.”

    “I would use food and eating as an excuse to take a break from my business when I actually should have just given myself a break.”

    “I would turn to food as a way to comfort myself and to almost numb the stress and the rollercoaster ride that we call entrepreneurship.”

    “I just felt like I wasn’t me. When I looked in the mirror it didn’t feel like I was looking at myself anymore.”

    “I decided that my number one, biggest goal for the entire year was going to be losing 30 pounds.”

    “I had been so focused on all of the actions that I thought I needed to take to lose weight that I had forgotten everything I knew about energy work, manifestation, and the Law of Attraction.”

    “I was going to spend 5-10 minutes a day visualizing myself in my dream body.”

    “The weight started to come off faster than it ever had before.”

    “I committed to following my intuition and letting my intuition guide me in all the decisions I was making about exercising, nutrition, and my body.”

    “I began to embody the version of myself that already had lost the weight and already had her dream body.”

    “Physical action alone is the slowest way to get something that you want. Your intentions, your energy, and your mindset need to be aligned with the things that you want in order for you to manifest those things successfully.”
