In 2017 I was stuck in a Crystal Meth addiction. Today I am sober and SO grateful to have found my way out of that dark place. How did I do it? Well, there are many wellness tools I use on a daily basis to live my best life. Young Living Essential Oils were the very first thing I found... and I still use them every single day. The health benefits & the community I found saved me. I’m so lucky to have found Young Living Essential Oils.
Can addiction be a healthy thing? In my experiences, I’ve realized that it CAN be. Healthy addictions can help us take our lives to a new level. Instead of looking at “addiction” as a purely negative thing, I’m choosing to embrace my addictive nature. I choose to be addicted to health & wellness!
In my life, I’ve gone to some dark places... contracting HIV, crystal meth addiction... I am no stranger to dark times. Now I am in a new chapter of my life.

Today I’m making good on that promise.

What’s in a name? A lot! When I finally decided to launch a podcast, the name came easily to me. You see, for most of my life, I’ve believed that I deserved bad things. I expected the worst for my future. I self destructed, but not all the way. Now I have a second chance to live the best life possible. The secret to wellness is learning to believe that I deserve it. I struggle with this belief every single day... this podcast is for my own wellness journey, as much as it is for anyone who listens. Let’s all be well together, because we deserve it!
