Hello my name is Monica Rodriguez and my goal by writing¬†these words is to inspire you and make you realize how¬†powerful and magnificent you truly are. If someone had¬†taught me this every time I felt alone, awkward, different,¬†and scared, my life would have totally changed.
I remember spending most of my childhood and teenage years¬†wanting to fit in, never feeling good enough and having the¬†need to prove myself to others, coupled with an extremely¬†high degree of perfectionism and dissatisfaction.
When I was 15, I could not stand it anymore, and I developed¬†an eating disorder that lasted for the next half of my life.¬†No matter how much support I received from my loved ones and¬†friends, this nightmare would not go away.
I tried mending my fears and obsessions around food trying¬†every diet out there, which only made it worse. I thought¬†that dieting, detoxing, eating alkaline, whole natural foods¬†and cleansing would solve all my problems and bring me to a¬†place of peace. Finally, the misery that all of this brought¬†me was too big for my heart, and I surrendered. This was my¬†breaking point, and it was when miracles started to¬†happen.
I had asked for sincere help, and the Universe answered. All¬†of a sudden, I came across the right teacher, the right¬†book, the right place and my consciousness started shifting.¬†At first, my fears were too big, which kept me stuck, but¬†all of a sudden, I just felt inspired towards doing what I¬†needed in order to feel alive again.
