Ep.001 Everything fell apart and I’m broke, fat and homeless

FinalCoverArtEverything fell apart and I’m broke, fat and homeless! Yes, that’s right.

For those of you who follow me you may have noticed I’ve been off the grid for awhile. Listen to my podcast to find out what happened, because I lost my home, my office, and was very close to losing my business as well.

No joke, I was fat, broke and homeless.

I was LOST.

Have you ever felt this way before? Like you just don’t know what the hell you’re doing?

Well I discovered something in this unraveling of my life. I discovered divine chaos. Listen to the podcast to find out what happened.

I realized in this unraveling of everything that is familiar, in this unraveling of me, there is divine order.

    Good stuff. I hit the all time low last year, and am now on track to start a business I’ve wanted to start for years. I may not be your ‘target audience’ so to speak, but I’ll be a loyal listener.

      Matt, you are the first person to respond to my podcast! Notice how I released it at night when everyone was sleeping? Well, everyone except us rockstar night owls.. =)

      I read your message late last night, and it was all I needed after toiling many long hours on putting this podcast together and baring my heart and soul. Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart, for taking the time to read, listen and post. You have no idea what it meant to receive your note, written exactly the way it was.

    Love how you are using your life as your curriculum! You and the universe make a great team and I want some of that!

      Anna, thank you! The Universe is indeed my partner, best friend and now even my business manager! He (is it a he??) takes care of all of the little details I can’t stand working with.

      It is the same for you!

      Thank you as always for your continued support, Merry Christmas!

    Good stuff here. As I say, the answers in life always come first. When we get buried in the crap that can cause us to panic or freeze or despair, instead of asking “Why is this happening to me?”, if instead we ask “What do I feel I am learning right now, and how am I being asked to share this with others?”, we begin to examine the situation from a completely different perspective. Instead of looking for answers, we learn to see that what is happening IS the answer. Look for the questions that will guide you to how you can use what you are experiencing.
    I thank you for your courage in sharing this with the world. I think, in some way, we’ve all been in a similar situation, and just knowing others have experienced it too will bring a greater sense of peace to all your message reaches. Thank you for being open to take on this life lesson as well, so you may help guide others and hopefully prevent them from falling in to their own despair.
    You = Awesome!!

      Ooh Frogman, I love this! –> “Instead of answers, we learn to see that what is happening IS the answer.” That is so simple yet profound, thank you so much for sharing this. It is indeed, all about perspective. A slight switch in the way we view something will give us a completely different outcome.

      I appreciate your comments and support! I look forward to seeing more of your insight on my blog. =)

      Anne S! Thank you thank you.. I started tearing when I read that you were! I don’t know why reading your post made me so emotional. You’ve been there from the beginning, and it means the world that you are here with me now. Love you TONS!

      LeeAnne, I’m SO happy to see your post here. I was thinking of you while I was creating this particular podcast. YOU are amazing. YOU are inspiring. It takes so much strength, courage and WILL to go through what you’re going through, and I’m glad we are on this journey together. HUGS!!

    I also lost my job. My mind. My house and almost my life when I landed in the hospital with a severe stress/panic attact. Blood pressure so high I should have been dead. I couldn’t talk to anybody so I started blogging and writing stuff on paper. My writing along with thetapy and prayer saved me.


    • Kat is my first name

      Wow Charli, thank you for sharing this. Sounds like sh*t really hit the fan for you too, eh? I’ve also used my writing and TONS of conversations with God/Universe to pull me through. This podcast is a result of it. =)

      Thank you for posting, and I look forward to more conversations with you. Love, Kat

    Wow Kat, you are an amazing woman. We all have our struggles and hidden fears. Huge hugs to you for being so bold and vulnerable to share this and your recent challenges. You are a savor to many and I am so proud to see you stepping up to give your gifts to the world. Thank you for inspiring me and many others. Love you honey! xoxo

      Awww Dev! You’re close to making me cry right now. Thank you my dear, for sharing those nice words with me. What I love most is we’ve been on this journey together! Though we may go for a stretch of time of not speaking, I KNOW you are working and hussling it! I have a tremendous amount of respect for you. I know what goes into building something from scratch. You got it, girl. So proud of you, too. Love you!!

    This is what you are made to do. Everything to this point and the recent transitions, have held, shaken, and catapulted you to this place. Beautifully raw and wonderfully executed — this is YOUR platform. Abundantly grateful that we crossed paths a year ago and cultivated a rooted friendship and most importantly, that I’ve been able to have the opportunity to walk along a shared frequency to witness this fantastic platform that has become your voice. Love you.

      Victoria my love, I am also so very grateful our paths have crossed and we have gotten to know each other! The parallels in our lives and the reoccurring synchronicities are proof that you have been brought to me as a special gift from the Universe. So much love for you!

    WOW! Kat that was so what I needed to hear and I am so grateful that I am going through my transformation (and it is hard) at the same time that you are and am also so happy that I get to have you in my life to share it with. Your first podcast was awesome! I am so excited to hear more and hopefully soon.

    Thank you Kat for really believing in me and helping me believe in myself to live my authentic life. You really are a true inspiration to me and my #1 role model. I love you! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox

    Kat, your podcast came at a time when I was spinning my wheels. I think it’s entirely rhythmic to go through periods of apathy or chaos, too — some of my best growth has occurred following them — the key is listening for (and recognizing) the prompt that indicates it’s time to get out of the slump. Your voice and encouraging words affirmed a random thought that crossed my mind this morning: “Why are you waiting for something to happen? MAKE it happen!” That’s when I knew it was time to grow again. Thanks for sharing you heart. xo

      Hi Kim! Wow I am beaming as I read your post. First, thank you so much for sharing. And secondly, YESSSS, let’s make it happen!!

      I am on this journey with you, Kim. Please keep me updated! I look forward to connecting with you more!

    This is such a great life lesson. I have realized two things after listening to this podcast: everyone goes through the same thing at some point and it is a matter of how we look at our trials. We all get to a point in our lives wherein we get lost but it is a matter of how we deal with it that makes us stronger and be able to get up to find our way again. Thank you for reminding me to pause and examine what is happening with my life and finding what I have to do to keep on going to the right direction.

      You are so sweet Abbey, thank you. I truly mean that!

    Been there. Unless you plumb the depths and go through the crucible, you cannot possibly know how low you can go, or what it will take to climb back up. While I don’t intend for that to occur again, I am frankly glad that I went through it, and know my failings that led to it, as well as my strengths that brought me back out. Thank you for sharing your message and inspiring so many! 🙂
