“The Wellness Factor”
Are you experiencing wellness? Of course, this can mean different things to different people. In addition, the motivation to pursue wellness takes many different forms. For Rebecca, it took losing her mother to pancreatic cancer in 2013, after watching a lifetime battle against wellness. Through chronic illness and countless medications, Rebecca watched her mom struggle and die “the slowest, most torturous death.” When she found herself falling into the same pattern, she put the brakes on her misery from being overweight, unhappy, and unwell. She gives us insight into the critical “Aha moment.”

“What the universe says to you . . .”
Have you come home from a day’s work and simply felt unfulfilled? If this is a recurring feeling, then you may need to take the first step like Rebecca did. She said, “That’s it. I’m going to pursue my dream.” She tells of the many great things that have happened in her life since she changed her focus. A job to pay the bills isn’t the same as one that fulfills your passion and chases your dreams. Rebecca explains why you may need to rethink your college degree field, figure out the next step, and create the BEST version of yourself.

How many dreams can you chase at once? Can they change over time? The answers are that you can chase as many dreams as you want, and YES, they can change over time. For example, Rebecca wants to write a book someday; she also wants to be a hero. No one knows what the future holds or what opportunities may come, but remember this: multiple dreams ARE allowed and you ARE allowed to change them!
