When the defining moment came my life was really, really good. When it came, my inner being knew it was not a bad thing. When it came, and I sat with my inner being quietly, I knew it was another opportunity for me to use my way of living to help me maintain my positive perspective and continue to honour my relationship with my inner self. And this defining moment gave me the chance to practice in a way I had never practiced before.
In May of 2019 I was diagnosed with rectal cancer. (My mother always said I was a pain in the ass. Lol!)
(For all of the details, with a heavy dose of inspiration and humour, visit the link at the bottom of this page. You'll learn all about my ‘Adventures with Marty’.)
This defining moment helped me to strengthen my positive perspective ‘muscle’ even more than I ever had. There was no doubt to me that this was a huge gift that I could then add to my life experience ‘resume’ and in turn support even more people in an even fuller way.
I became inspired to expand my business to match the evolved person I had become. This version of my business had been a vision within me for many years. And now I felt I had what I needed to really step into it fully. This shift included creating new wellbeing products and services, having a bigger online presence, and operating the business under the branding of Lora Colautti and Wellbeing with Lora. (Yoga with Lora continues to be a service offered under the full business.)
My life has been filled with amazing defining moments so far. Because of the tools I have, the outlook I have and the way I live my life, I know that even the challenges are gifts. (Often times especially the challenges!)
For the past 15+ years, through life’s challenging day to day moments, through the illness and passing of my sister, and even during my own health diagnosis and treatments, I have been able to maintain a connection to what is right for me, to maintain a positive perspective more often than not, and to feel emotionally empowered rather than simply reacting to what is.
I have no doubt that I can show you how to do the same, no matter what your defining moment or challenge is. This is what I am here, on this planet, in this life, to do.
And I truly believe that now is your time. It’s your time to feel emotionally empowered. It’s your time to have a positive perspective on life. It’s your time to honour your inner voice and tend to your relationship with you.
Remember, your defining moments don’t define you. You define yourself by how you choose to move through them and who you decide to be because of them. And I am here to help.
