this is deeply personal... - Esther Blum

this is deeply personal…

Hi Gorgeous,

Today marks my 45th birthday and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than to help create something so much bigger than myself.

But before I do, I want to fill you in on some personal info about what’s been going on behind the scenes.

Life is funny.  On social media, it all looks perfect, right?  I post pictures of my beautiful boy and family, I post glam shots, workout pics, and mucking it up with friends.  And that’s not to say that I’m disingenuous when I’m doing these posts, because that’s not the case.  I’m actually deeply present in those moments and am capturing them publicly because I want to show them off to the world.

But behind the curtain and underneath the smoke and mirrors lies the rest of me.  The me who slogged through 8 years with severe insomnia due to Epstein Barr Virus.  The me who was struggling to physically get through every day when I’d had maybe 2 hours of quality sleep the night before.  The me who continued to write and work with clients by day but would be crying myself to sleep at night and fighting deep depression and despair because I wasn’t the mother, wife, friend or healer that I wanted to be.

A few years into this, I woke up crying to my husband one morning.  He looked at me and lovingly said, “Just go and DO something about it!”  And although I was pissed at him at the time and wasn’t able to see that he had my back, hearing those words was the kick in the ass I needed to go and get my fight on.  From then on, I was determined to get myself out of the hole I was in and recover my health.  I wasn’t going down without a fight and EBV could go screw itself!

It took me many more years to find the practitioner who actually diagnosed me with EBV, got me off my sleep and anxiety meds, and helped me get my total sleep groove back.  And during those long, slow, years, I had to be patient and pray and get through one whole day at a time.  Not knowing what the night or even the next day would bring brought me to my knees with humility.  

But during my search, I never gave up hope because I learned to develop resilience and determination.  I had to be strong for my family, my clients, and for myself.  I knew there was no way in hell I would let this go on forever–I made up my mind that I would refuse to let it happen.

My experience has grounded me in a way I never knew possible and gave me a spectacular perspective on all that you can accomplish in life–no matter what hell you’re going through behind the scenes.  I feel blessed and grateful and thank Gd every day that my husband and son and friends all stuck with me through my journey back to wellness.  

So now, my Gorgeous Ones, I’m bringing that level of self-empowerment, knowledge, and overall badassery right to you.  Better yet, I’d like to bring you to me so we can personally, deeply, and authentically do some groundbreaking work together.

In fact, as I write this, I’m sitting on my deck on a majestic day, putting the finishing touches on my #RadicallyGorgeous weekend intensive and I’m STOKED!

You are a candidate for this course if:

-You’re sick of your clothes not fitting and feel trapped in your body

-You feel on edge and often take your anger out on your hubs/kids

-You can’t remember the last time you felt sexy and desirable

-You can’t remember the last time you proudly walked around naked

-You have low energy and motivation

-You feel lost when it comes to knowing what to eat

-You want to rewire what and how you eat, and SUSTAIN IT

-You want to feel totally unapologetic and completely confident about what you do choose to eat

-You climb up the intentional mountain only to slide right back down

-You’re completely sick of where you’re at and are ready to grab change by the lady balls

-You want to feel PEACE OF MIND, PRESENT IN YOUR OWN LIFE, CONFIDENT, HAPPY, HEALTHY, ENERGETIC, PROUD OF YOUR BODY, AND FEEL PRESENT IN YOUR OWN LIFE (…and not even think about whether your clothes will fit you that day!).

Radically Gorgeous coaching is designed to bring you into alignment with your goals.  Not only do we create a roadmap and action plans for your health and your life, but get you feeling empowered and crystal clear on your path and purpose.

For some people, this means changing their diets, getting off their meds and healing their bodies.  For others, it means rethinking their marital status.  For others, it’s dropping a lot of weight and being more mindful of their diet and exercises.  Everyone has a unique path and purpose, and everyone’s needs get addressed.

Since what we pay attention to grows, I can tell you that handling the emotional piece that underlies all your fears, motivations, and behaviors will naturally flow into the other areas of your life.  When you nurture and grow the practice and art of self-love, all the other pieces fall will into place.

The weekend is packaged with coaching calls before and after the weekend to continue supporting the work we do together.

I have a couple spaces left in my group for September 17-19th and am also accepting applicants for the October 15-17th.

Email me if you’re ready to do epic shit for yourself, your family, and your LIFE.

Live Gorgeously,
