Are you just so done with that darned cocoon and ready for your inner butterfly to spread her wings?
I'm Lorie Gehrke, creator of Mariposa Living, and I get it! I wear many hats - coach, speaker, trainer, advocate, certified grief peer contact/support group facilitator, and a certified nutritionist. But, at the core, I'm a life strategist, collaborating with you to develop the tools you need and the clarity you crave.
Our lives - our journeys - are constantly in flux. Different times and life events have us journeying from caterpillar to butterfly, time and time again. But sometimes, we get stuck in the transition - the cocoon. We entered for protection and safety, sheltering us during these (sometimes painful) transformations. The cocoon offered a respite, time to make sense of "what happened" and to figure out what to do next. But what if you got mired down and stuck?
While languishing in that cocoon, many of us continue to put on a happy face, going through the daily motions of our lives, yet deep down we know there's a problem. Our past fears, grief, and insecurities begin impacting our physical and mental health, keeping us awake at night and generally leaving us feeling a bit hopeless, a bit downtrodden, a bit resigned to accepting the inevitable "way it is." When we fear emerging from the cocoon, when we're wrapped up tight in that protective shell, we prevent ourselves from blossoming, prevent our butterfly from spreading her wings.
So finding tools to empower and understand yourself become mission critical in emerging from the cocoon, with more strength and confidence than you thought possible. As the ah-ha moments arrive, you can finally push through the shell, spread your wings, take a deep breath, and begin to soar.
