Session Description:

Do you ever wish that your circumstances were different so that you could just live the life you want and be happy?  Do you ever feel powerless over your life?  Do you ever make excuses?  Do you ever let others’ opinions of you change how you see yourself?  Do you ever question if you are enough?

Join Melissa for a powerful and personal story filled with truth, humor, and even time travel.  Be reminded that your circumstances don’t define you.  Rediscover who you are, and what makes you YOU.  Learn how to take ownership over your existence.  Listen and truly start believing that you are enough, exactly as you are. 

We hope you leave this session feeling worthy, audacious, and powerful – and, with a boot-print on your behind to start embracing who you are and living the life you want.
