"You've always had the power, my dear..."
We unknowingly relinquish our power at a very early age. We go through life rejoicing at, or lamenting, the hand we feel that we've been dealt. The truth is, we have a choice. We may not be able to control what comes our way, but we can ALWAYS choose how we react. and how willing we are to experience the moment as it is. That's the premise making mindful choices and living mindfully and THAT'S where the magic begins!
Who Is this Maxx Chick, Anyway?
Hi, thanks for finding me!
I'm a former radio/tv host. A few years ago I became extremely ill , and I was eventually diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. After learning everything I could about autoimmune conditions and the effect stress has on the body both psychologicalIy and physically, I knew that I had to make some drastic life changes. Shortly after this journey began I was blind sided by the sudden death of my brother, my only sibling, my hero. I had come to a crossroads, I could curl into a fetal position and hide, or I could take control and make the choice to thrive.
I started studying psychology, mindfulness, spirituality, neuropsychology, quantum physics, and the mind-body connection. I was excited to find they all overlap, and that our untapped potential is enormous!
At first, I took what I learned and applied it to myself. The more I learned the more I tried, the more I tried, the more I grew. After a huge emotional, physical and spiritual transformation, I decided that I needed to share the exciting and empowering knowledge that I had gained, information that we SHOULD be given as children, but aren't. At first the "sharing" came from attempts at shouting from tree tops to anyone who would listen, when that didn't work out, I started a YouTube Channel, this blog and my e-book, "Mindfulness for People Who Suck at Being Mindful".
In my blog I focus on what I consider to be the 3 pillars to a well rounded life, happiness, health and home. I share lessons that I've learned (many of them the hard way) .I give practical, actionable tips on overcoming anxiety, changing self-defeating patterns, taking control of your mental and physical health and creating the life you were MEANT to live.
I talk about modern day mindful living, for the not TOO woo-woo.
I also post about being a crazy cat lady and my days as a Radio/TV Host, and share my passion for things like travel, books, nature, photography and DIY decorating.
Feel free to drop me a message. Keep learning and growing, we ARE magic! xo Melissa
