Hi, I’m Gabriela, and it is my deepest desire to help you fall completely in love with Mondays.
For most of my adult life, I’ve struggled to find fulfillment. While outwardly, I often appeared to have “made it” – beautiful family, high-powered attorney job, six-figure salary – I knew deep down that something wasn’t working. Despite how hard I worked, I never felt like it was enough. I never felt like I was enough.
How did I get there? I went to law school somewhat by accident, but with a deep desire to change the world. You know what I mean. I was going to help people.
After law school, I was quickly disillusioned. Everyone around me seemed too detached and too tired to care, let alone to change the world. I felt totally alone as I watched my colleagues sleepwalk through life.
Somewhere along the way, I went from observing these people to being one of these people. I completely lost myself. And my spark. I felt stuck and lost.
In an attempt to find myself, I switched jobs. Multiple times. Things continued to worsen until I got so deeply lost in the grind of my everyday that I couldn’t see how unhappy I was, let alone how to go about fixing it.
I was stuck on hold. Waiting for myself to show up.
Eventually, I realized that I required accountability to make a real shift. Unfortunately, I had no idea where to find it.
One fateful day, I asked for book recommendations on confidence in a facebook group. Many people responded, but only one took the time to say, “Wow, that is a really big question.” She invited me to deepen it, to get more specific, and most importantly, to get on the phone and talk it out.
Before I knew it, we had shared four or five conversations. I felt like I was finally getting somewhere. She called me out and made me own my stuff. She held me accountable. She asked the tough questions. Long story short, I hired her.
The next four months were completely transformative. I took assignments very seriously. I had invested cold hard cash, so I also felt motivated to invest the time and energy required to get to the heart of my issues.
I’ll be honest. My process hasn’t been quick and easy. And it hasn’t happened overnight. But it has happened. And is happening. With every day, I get closer to fully embodying my New Monday lifestyle.
Now, I’m following my truth and helping other women lift themselves up and find fulfillment in their lives. As an accidental lawyer turned success and business coach, I have a unique perspective that enables me to see to the heart of what’s keeping you stuck and to ask the tough questions that will create movement in your life.
I want you to know that I see you. And I’ve been there. I finally found the support I needed to get over my Sunday night blues. Now, I’m making it my business to help you do the same.
