Can I share with you a wee little secret? Well. It's not a little... it's a huge God-sized dream in my heart. But it may explain why I spend endless hours working on my craft... Can you even call Brain + Gut Health exploration a craft?
The thing is... I love it. Honestly I spend hours pouring myself into my work because I love it and I love making YOU (my tribe) happy + helping other women tweak their daily habits to live a more vibrant + productive life.
However, here's the secret... it's not the only dream in my heart. YIKES! My God-sized dream is to own/operate an equine therapy ranch or a resort of sorts on our lake property. A place where kids who need a wee bit more attention receive equine therapy... and while therapy is in session, their parents + I chat about nutrition - about household products - about mindset - about, well, Brain + Gut Health and steps they can do at home for their littles.
Then after lunch, the families are able to relax on the lake property and have a vacation of sorts... seriously. Can't you just SEE IT!?!?
Here's the beautiful thing about this dream... it comes full circle. See, I grew up the youngest of three girls with my two oldest sisters being confined to wheelchairs due to a form of Muscular Dystrophy. I knew at a young age, I wanted to give back... to families and to see smiles on children's faces who were facing battles I couldn't even imagine.
My path took a turn when I ended up going to veterinary school then a residency into critical care/emergency... but another PLOT TWIST came about when our twins were born prematurely at 27 weeks and this mama had to learn much about brain + gut health.
Then the dream came together: an equine therapy ranch for families with kids needing a wee bit more attention... receiving therapy while I coach parents on optimal brain + gut health... nutrition, health hacks, movement, etc.
See, every person I met along our journey brings a new layer to what we can offer to our products NOW and to our guests at this ranch... every person I help gets me closer to opening up our doors to this ranch... every person is helping us fulfill this God-sized dream in my heart.
I call it God-sized, because it's so ridiculously huge I know that only God can help fulfill it.
This equine therapy ranch is the main reason, I show up. The reason, I get out of my comfort zone with Instagram LIVES (ugh, seriously. if you need a laugh watch my facial expressions... follow me here).
This dream... this ranch is the reason, I strive every day to help women live their most optimal life through simple health hacks focusing on Brain + Gut Health.
I know it will all be worth it when I see the smiles on the first family who stays at our ranch.
Whew! Now, what’s your dream? I'd love to hear about it... and support you on this crazy ride!
