Firstly, thank you for checking out A Rising Warrior!
A little about myself – I grew up in London but moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in TV and film casting.
I’ve always been very interested in psychology and wellness to enhance the quality of my life. After studying eastern religions at university, yoga became my favourite means to help with my lack of self-confidence. This led me to pursue my yoga and Ayurveda teacher training in conjunction with my casting career.
Life was great! That was until the day of my skiing accident. I tore my ACL and MCL, and injured my PCL and meniscus. I went from a high energy individual to complete stillness. Recovery was the yin to my yang. I didn’t realize it then but this was the turning point that awakened something much bigger in me.
Prior to the accident, exercise was one of my main coping mechanisms for negative thoughts. The injury, however, forced me to turn within. I had to awaken my inner warrior to get me through the physical pain as well as the mental aspect of injury. I was determined to rise stronger – both physically and mentally and, so, I addressed all areas of my life from nutrition and diet, to my mental thoughts, lifestyle and self-care routine. Now I feel happier, stronger and more confident because of my new wellness routine.
Life isn’t always easy. We face trials and tribulations, we lose people and things we love and unexpected obstacles always seem to occur right when you least expect them. It truly takes strength to get back up after life knocks you down. I hope that what I learned during this past year can help others and that these tips help make the good times in life even better. For the inevitable bad times, perhaps these tips will give you extra ammunition to fight your battles. We all need to nourish our inner warriors and live life to our fullest potential!
Thank you again for checking out A Rising Warrior. I love to hear your input, as there is always something new to learn and expand our horizons. As a community we can help support each other and rise stronger. It’s time to let go of all that is holding you back. It’s time to reclaim your power and live a quality live filled with growth, happiness and laughter.
