Hi! Introducing my new brand – Lauren The T1D Life Coach! Starting a new business is really scary. I became a life coach SO that I could help people with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). I didn’t become a life coach and then decide to specialize in T1D. Yet I still called my business “Life Coaching […]

I overate yesterday. And today I beat myself up for it. When I coached myself this morning, I remembered to be kind to myself. Approach it with curiosity and compassion – I just wanted to understand where the shame was coming from. So I asked myself how did eating make me feel? Awful Wretched Terrible […]

How soon do you want to be happy? Something clicked inside of me when I heard that question. I couldn’t put my happiness on a shelf any longer. 🙌🏻 How soon did I want to be happy? The answer was yesterday. I was miserable at work, feeling stuck in my life, and I desperately wanted […]

Almost exactly a year ago (Feb 12th, 2021 to be exact), I quit my 20-year corporate career. 🚫 I had no plan 🚫 I felt lost and terrified 🚫 I just knew that I was over the corporate world It’s amazing to reflect, how one year later… ✅ I’m a certified life coach ✅ I’m […]

I couldn’t sleep last night. My mind was racing with items from my To-Do list. When that happens, I often think about what I’m grateful for. -My mom… check -My life coach Michelle… check And then out of nowhere My diabetes WHAT. Yes, I said it. Then I thought about it. Of course, I am. […]
