The Luxe in Toronto Life Coaching Retreat™ was created from my lived experience of desperately needing an escape from the hectic busyness my life had become as a result of balancing motherhood, teaching a rambunctious group of kindergartners, and building a business from the ground up on my own without any emotional or financial support. My social life, at the time, had become non-existent and my passion for enjoying and experiencing the sweeter things of life eluded me. On most days, I felt like I was invisible to the world, but most importantly a stranger to myself. I felt suffocated, abandoned, and forced into a dreadful, repetitive routine that I perceived at the time I had no way out of. It was during this transitional phase of my life when I started to become more intentional about taking better care of myself spiritually, physically, and emotionally which overtime healed the wounded areas of my life that were stagnating me creatively; thus, reigniting my passion for life again.
I challenged myself on the weekends to venture out of my closed-knit, suburban community in Ajax, ON whenever I had the free time to indulge in a much-needed rejuvenating spa and shopping excursion; or to attend dinner and a movie with friends to help elevate and lift the heaviness I was feeling at that point in my life. Those ‘dates with self’ as I like to call it helped me rediscover my authentic purpose and passion for life and it also reminded me of the important role and necessity self-care plays in our lives, thus allowing us to escape the isolating bubble we unintentionally create for ourselves through the busy lives we lead as career focused, business savvy, multi-tasking women on the go. It was during those moments of escape I was reminded by the universe that it is absolutely okay to be a little self-indulgent from time to time and that I am worth investing in. As such, my weekend trips to Toronto inadvertently turned into a much-welcomed retreat away from the mundane, repetitiveness my life at that time had become; most importantly it resurrected and reignited my creative passion that had dimmed over the years; due to toxic relationships that were no longer edifying nor serving a purpose in my life.
