Episode 197: Heather Chauvin: You Deserve to Feel Good Now, Not Someday
Heather Chauvin is an author, speaker, life coach, mother, and all-around incredible human with a powerful message for this week's podcast. Heather goes into detail about her stage 4 cancer diagnosis, how it caused a powerful revelation in her, and how to unlock that potential within yourself without first having to receive devastating news. From Heather's own words: "I tried desperately to make sure my kids were happy and kept telling myself, “It’s only a phase - this will get better with time,” all while continuing to pour from an empty cup at the expense of myself.
The internal pressure I felt spilled out into my whole life. I was a tense and exhausted mom, partner, businesswoman, and friend.
In the end, spinning my wheels almost killed me.
A year after my youngest son was born I was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, and the illusion of control I held so tightly to came crashing down.
In the blink of an eye I saw just how far away I was from living a life I actually wanted. I knew I couldn’t keep living the same way if I wanted to experience real joy and fulfillment.
As the chemo dripped into my body, I decided that I didn’t just want to survive. I wanted to FEEL ALIVE.
I consciously began to reparent myself and say no to my old excuses. What happened next blew me away.
I started noticing a shift in my children’s behavior. I saw greater success in my business. My health began to improve. My relationships grew more connected.
Don’t make the same mistake I did. Don’t wait for an unexpected diagnosis to wake you up to making the changes in your life you’ve put on the backburner.
You are WORTHY of feeling good, NOW.
