Gosh, where does the time go? It always flies by when you are having fun, doesn't it?
I am celebrating my business birthday at the end of this month and Fiona Dalziel Holistic Therapy is going to be five years old!
And I couldn’t be happier.
Working with women to help them bring balance and harmony to their lives through heart-centred therapies is my soul purpose and I am so grateful that we found each other.
I am a self-confessed empath and sensitive soul. These qualities are my trademark - my superpower.
I wish I realised this from the very beginning instead of finding myself immersed in a world where these qualities are recognised as weak and powerless instead of the incredible strengths they are.
When I left behind my career in the corporate world almost 15 years ago, I was lost. For more than half of my life I had been pretending to be a different person. And disguising who you really are is exhausting.
And along with the exhaustion, came anxiety – anxiety that took over my life.
I wrote about that anxiety and how I worked to overcome it, in a collaborative book in 2021 with 14 other women. Publishing my story in Seen for the world to read was extremely cathartic.
I really do recognise from my own experience how women can find it increasingly difficult to take time for proper self-care, due to our busy and often stressful lifestyles. How anxiety at all levels can take it’s toll on us and everyone around us.
This recognition is what led me retrain to become a holistic therapist. It started out in part as a way to save myself – I was drawn to do something that was aligned to who I really was.
And now, five years on, being true to myself is my why. What I do every day is pure unadulterated me, no filter, no pretending, just me! And I absolutely love it! It makes my heart sing.
This beautiful sensitivity that I have carried around like a damned curse most of my life was in fact my superpower. I love that I use this for the benefit of myself and others. It is no longer my nemesis.
Happy birthday to me!
