MY STORY ❤️
I guess I was in that stage of my life where I needed a total turnover, otherwise I would have lived my life as a grey mouse, unhappy and on the edge of depression. I was not happy. I was sort of ok, but not happy and not enjoying life. I had a lot to be grateful for, but was still not feeling the joy of living. I should have been happy with what I had in my life as society, friends and family expect you to, but to be totally honest,
I was not at all. I didn’t like my job, I didn’t earn enough money, I didn’t have a man in my life that loved me unconditionally , I didn’t have any self-confidence, I didn’t enjoy special or little things, I didn’t have an amazing looking body and I was not eating healthy at all. I was just so negative. I was ashamed to think
this, as I was sitting on an average throne and there were others who had much less to be happy with.
On top of that, I was convinced that I was a lost cause and unable to become truly happy, as I grew up in a very dysfunctional family with a father who was verbally abusive, a mother that couldn’t handle the situation and a sister that was extremely jealous. For as long as I can remember, I was in survival mood as a child, lacking my parents and big sister’s support, guidance, love and protection. All this made me believe that I was not good enough. Not good enough to be loved, not good enough to achieve anything and not good enough to become happy. When I looked at others, I felt that they were living a normal, joyful life. It seemed that they were doing fine and that only I missed that ‘joie de vivre’, that total relaxed, warm feeling inside that you get when you are truly happy and you appreciate life.
When I talked with my friends about me being not happy in life and my past demons coming up all the time, a few suggested following therapy and even one suggested antidepressants. Now, I am a person that only goes to the doctor if it is utterly necessary or for my yearly check-ups. When my friends advised me to follow therapy and take antidepressants, it was like a wakeup call, like a slap in my face. Do I really need therapy? Is this inside slumbering feeling of no motivation, being down and unhappy only solvable with pills? Will I never get rid of this feeling as long as I am alive? Am I unfixable?! I thought about it and thought about it. Were my only two options 1) follow therapy and take antidepressants or 2) accept being unhappy and live with it?
In my opinion, therapy is a good way to deal with your problems and struggles. You have to be able to talk about them with a therapist, your friends or your family. It helped me to talk about my slumbering lifestyle, but I needed an action plan too. Just talking about it, wasn’t enough for me. That’s when I decided to figure out an action plan to enjoy my life and every single second of it! I started to look for that meaning in life and developed my own way of living that made me able to live a happy, content, mentally stable, active and healthy life. After friends took over my way of living with success, I decided to get my life coach, personal trainer and nutritionist degree to be able to share my story, my experiences and my knowledge with others. This is how my amazing journey started and how it continued in creating 'Maitha's Way Of Life'. Now, I can honestly say that I am living the lifestyle that I always wanted to live. I feel truly happy and I am enjoying my life to the fullest!
I created the 'Maitha’s Way Of Life coaching programs' to share my story, my experiences and my knowledge with you and to guide and help you to create a HAPPY, CONTENT, MENTALLY STABLE, ACTIVE and HEALTHY lifestyle. My conclusion, after experiencing my journey and creating these programs, would be that it is all about taking action in life and being in control of your life, the choices you make and the effort you want to put into it. Just talking or thinking about it, will not get you there.
I am giving you my story as an inspiration and who knows, it might work for you, as it did for me. I am not proclaiming that this is the way to get out of the grey mouse zone or to become happy, content, mentally stable, active and healthy. For me, it did wonders and I finally felt better. After a while, I felt happier, had more energy and started to feel the amazing benefits of becoming healthier and mentally stable. After finishing the 12-week program, I felt so amazing that I couldn’t understand why I was living the lifestyle I was living before. My new lifestyle brings me so much joy and I want to share this joy with you!
It is a lifestyle, a way of living that you need to learn, control and nurture. You have to earn a happy, content, mentally stable, active and healthy life. It is not something you have or do not have. You need to be willing to work for it and continue to sustain it. With my 'Maitha’s Way Of Life 12-week action plans', I want to guide and help you to achieve and to maintain this new lifestyle! I hope you accept my help and we can create together the life you always wanted to live.
Follow my steps and enjoy the journey!
