About Aurora Life Solutions
I’ve Been There!
I lived with am impoverished inner voice. I was raised in a lower middle-class family that came on hard times. For years my Dad, Mom and extended family worked tirelessly to make ends meet in order to sustain the family. We had just enough to slimly get by. As a child, I was fully aware of our struggles. I would often hear an inner voice giving me caution to everything I did or would ever want since money was always tight. Even in adulthood, with my independence and finances, I struggled to overcome an impoverished mindset that was accompanied by a hauntingly somber inner voice. I existed in a Charlie Brown state with a constant cloud of guilt ready to rain down on me anytime I considered doing something nice for myself. To avoid confronting such misery, I began to live a luke-warm mundane life of routine activities to give my life structure as I juggled the day-in, day-out rigmarole of life.
I finally took a leap to get help from a life coach. As a client, I learned the importance of having a mission and vision for my life. Until that point, I lived most my life wandering day-to-day, almost aimlessly to fulfill societal, institutional and governmental requirements. I was not conscious of the influence of my socialization. I was molded to think and solve problems, but with an institutionalized mindset. I went through the wicks of the American education system, from grade school through grad school; learning everything and questioning nothing. I’ve worked in government as a highly skilled and disciplined employee, taking and issuing orders without question. While deep inside I had a yearning for more than the mundane day-in, day-out life I lived thus far.
I am now a Life Coach who has an experience to share, and the insight to guide clients to solutions that enhance their lives.
