10 Lessons Learned the Hard Way

Hey there, friend! Let’s have a heart-to-heart and talk about some lessons I’ve learned the hard way. Trust me, I’ve been through it, and I want to share these nuggets of wisdom with you.

  1. You know what? There’s never going to be a perfect time. We often wait for the stars to align, but life keeps moving, and opportunities pass us by. So, take that leap, chase your dreams, and don’t let the fear of imperfection hold you back.
  2. It’s easy to fall into the trap of comfort and routine, but here’s the truth: whatever you’re not changing, you’re choosing. If you want to grow and experience new things, you’ve got to step outside your comfort zone and embrace the unknown.
  3. Relationships can be tricky, and trust me, I’ve had my fair share of ups and downs. But here’s the thing: communication is key. Talk openly, listen attentively, and don’t let misunderstandings simmer. Address issues head-on, and you’ll save yourself from unnecessary heartache.
  4. Ah, self-care, my friend. It’s not just a buzzword. It’s essential. I’ve learned the hard way that neglecting your well-being only leads to burnout and exhaustion. So, take time for yourself, indulge in activities that bring you joy, and prioritize your mental and physical health.
  5. Life can be unpredictable, and setbacks are bound to happen. But here’s the secret: resilience is your superpower. When faced with challenges, dust yourself off, learn from the experience, and come back stronger. Remember, it’s not about avoiding failure, but how you bounce back from it.
  6. Oh, the art of saying “no.” It took me a while to realize that it’s okay to set boundaries and prioritize yourself. You don’t have to be a people-pleaser or take on more than you can handle. Learn to say no when necessary and create space for what truly matters to you.
  7. Dreams and goals are great, but don’t forget to live in the present moment. It’s easy to get caught up in chasing the next big thing, but life happens right here, right now. So, savor the little moments, appreciate the journey, and find joy in the everyday.
  8. Vulnerability can be scary, but it’s also incredibly liberating. Opening up and being authentic with others cultivates deep connections and allows you to be seen for who you truly are. Embrace your imperfections, share your struggles, and watch how it strengthens your relationships.
  9. Money matters can be tough, believe me. But here’s the deal: budgeting and financial responsibility are crucial. Take control of your finances, track your expenses, and save for the future. It might not be glamorous, but it’ll give you peace of mind and freedom in the long run.
  10. Lastly, my dear friend, remember that life is a journey, and it’s okay to make mistakes. Embrace the lessons learned, grow from them, and keep moving forward. Be patient with yourself, celebrate your progress, and trust that you’re exactly where you need to be.

I hope these lessons resonate with you and bring some insight into your own journey. Life can be challenging, but with each hardship comes an opportunity to learn, grow, and become a better version of ourselves. You’ve got this!

Hi love, I’m Silvia!

I’m a specialist in starting over. 

Trauma revealed truths that took me to some faraway places for healing and wisdom. In Bali, South America, New Zealand, Australia, Laos, Hawaii and Malaysia, I soaked it up, took bold actions, and expanded what was possible for me.

Through all of this I learned something profound; the power of resiliency can be taught and even making a 5% change can change the future dramatically.

Now I teach women like you to access the power within you to change your life, celebrate your genius and start over to create any life you dare to dream.
