Eight months ago I was laying in bed hungover with an ice pack on my head asking my husband for Advil and calling out of work. Today I was up at 5:45 am, made my coffee, let the dogs out and a hangover is nowhere in sight. Eight months ago I made a choice. I said “I’m done with this roller coaster, there has to be a better way to live” and there is!! I have found it! I signed up with a Sober Curious Life Coach (of course Cari Wolters is my amazing coach), and through her support, I started my journey! I read books and relentlessly listened to podcasts during my commute. I became aware of my triggers. I changed my work schedule to avoid the witching hour and to give myself a day off mid-week for personal growth time. I got a therapist. I caught up on a lot of Dr. appointments. I started organizing my finances better. I made time for a morning practice. I also made the plunge to sign up for yoga teacher training!! Most importantly, I began to trust myself which has greatly improved my self-confidence!
I am writing this testimonial with an overwhelming sense of gratitude for Coach Cari. In a moment of worry and emotional struggle, I found myself stuck in anxiety with a tough thought that seemed to cast a shadow over my entire perspective. Her ability to connect on a human level, with kindness, compassion, and an intuitive understanding of my emotions, created a safe space for me to share. Coach Cari guided me through a transformative process, providing insights and perspectives that helped me turn my negative thoughts into a source of strength and energy. The impact was profound, and I was stunned as I felt a shift in my mindset. It seriously felt like a magic trick! Coach Cari has a unique gift for instilling hope and optimism. I am so grateful for the positive change she facilitated not only in that particular moment but also for moments to come!
