Life Is Happening FOR You

What if you believed life was happening for you … always? Like every moment of your life, even the pain and struggles, is always for your highest good — and something to celebrate.

Over two years ago when I went through a crappy breakup, I called one of my beautiful soul sisters. I was walking through Palisades Park in Santa Monica, California balling my eyes out when I called her. I shared with her what happened and she said, “I know I’m probably supposed to say I’m sorry, but I’m not going to. In fact, we get to celebrate this because this is part of your soul’s journey. I know something good will come from this, and I can’t wait to find out what it is … Now don’t get me wrong, if you need a shoulder to cry on, or if you need someone to scream at the top of the mountain with you, or if you want someone to come over to just sit quietly and hold you, I’m your girl. But, we get to celebrate this.”


I was not expecting that response, BUT, I was sooooooo grateful for it. I was hit with clarity that everything that happens in our life is something to celebrate — the good, and what we may perceive as bad. When we feel sorry for ourselves (and want others to do the same), or resist what is, it only creates suffering and keeps us in a lower vibration. When we’re in a lower vibe, it’s difficult to bring in and receive the good.

After that powerful conversation, I began to see all the challenges that happen in life as something to celebrate because it is for our highest good. There’s growth and expansion that can come from every experience if we choose it.  That’s our soul’s journey.

The crazy thing is, earlier this year, my soul sistah called me. She shared that she was diagnosed with 4th stage breast cancer. I listened, and took a deep breath in, and as I gently breathed it out, I got to say to her, “I know I’m probably supposed to say I’m sorry, but I’m not going to. In fact, we get to celebrate this because this is part of your soul’s journey. I know something good will come from this, and I can’t wait to find out what it is …”

Let me tell ya, the shift in choosing to see that life is happening for you, and that even the challenges are something to celebrate, radically transforms the experience of pain.

Is there something you’re challenged with right now? Or are you experiencing pain? How is this happening for you? What good can come from it? Most importantly, don’t forget to celebrate, because this is part of your soul’s journey, and there’s going to be magic when you get to the other side.

With all my love,

Stephanie has been my secret weapon in life to cut through the crap that I have faced. Over the course of working with her, I have come to know myself differently, have tapped into my personal power and navigate life with more freedom. I feel like I can easily handle whatever life throws at me now without losing my mind ... and THAT is priceless.

I think I've drunk the same kool-aid my friend did because I now can’t stop sharing about Stephanie either. She has truly changed my life. She has given me the tools to feel empowered and to be able to handle any situation. I feel confident, on track and have done a lot of my own personal healing. I am so thankful for all the changes in my life and have become a raving fan now too!

Stephanie doesn't allow people to play small and she knew just how to work with me to get me to take actions on things that I wanted to for years but I never did. I have faced my fears and see that I am so much bigger than who I thought I was. I am thankful that Stephanie saw something more in me and knew how to draw that out.

I was guided back towards my ideal self, I discovered who I was, what I’m passionate about and found love for myself that had been lost. I also developed the courage to design my dream job that I was too afraid to admit I wanted. It has been a journey and if it wasn't the safe space Stephanie created for me to be fully raw and real, I don’t think I would be living this life that I’m so excited about now.

Stephanie really changed my life. It was amazing working with her because she opened my eyes to what I needed to see to move forward and not get stuck in the past. She helped me clear up a lot of negative thinking that was holding me back as a person and also helped me realize what I needed to get over in order to let the positive flow in.

It would take too long to describe all the positive shifts that have happened in my life from working with Stephanie. The best way to sum it all up is that she has changed my life. She totally got me and was able to navigate me through troubled waters, leaving me seeing possibilities and feeling very empowered.

For several years now, I’ve had Stephanie as my life coach, and it has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Her knowledge, insight, and wisdom have helped me tremendously and her genuine personality, caring spirit, and loving soul are traits I will forever treasure.
