I reached out and put my dilemmas, struggles, achievements, and crazy head talk out there because I was looking for an alternative way of thinking. A new way of experiencing my life and thoughts. It's often because I know there is a better/healthier way of being, thinking, acting that I want to explore but can't push myself to. I am completely changed because of Allegra's guidance around empowering me (and so many other women) to see that their experiences and lives are what they make them.
For me, life permanently changed overnight. The impossibly real struggle of picking up the emotional pieces, seeing life and myself through a new and loving lens, realizing the power I have to create happiness for myself, embracing the uncertainty of everyday, and finding hope/possibility in the next were realized when Allegra came into the picture. Her incredible wisdom, loving guidance and compassion, constant listening ear, and gentle reframing of life were the pivotal factors in helping me feel empowered to embrace what was happening and find peace and possibility in what will be.
My family and friends were amazing resources and shoulders to lean on. However, they didn't have the limitless amount of insight or patience, the unparalleled ability to provide me with new lenses and perspectives, and belief in me when I couldn't find it within myself. My work with Allegra provided me with a constant and unwavering source of strength.
In the moments when I didn't think the sadness would end and I didn't know what to do with the fear that comes with uncertainty and loss, I realized, with her guidance, that when things fall apart, new and amazing things come together. Thoughts are powerful and can be the source of suffering or tremendous growth. When I was endlessly clumsy and simply couldn't get up off my knees, Allegra was there to offer love, support, confidence, and a resolute sense of hope and possibility. I am confident the fog I was in would have lifted eventually. I do not doubt for a second though that Allegra's angelic guidance, wisdom,and determined belief in me changed me forever. She helped me feel more empowered in the face of change than I could have ever imagined.
