It is my compassion, my empathy, my heart, my intuition, my kindness, my overall gentle nature that makes me who I am.
I’m not entirely sure whether I was born this way, but I am sure that I have cultivated these traits through hitting rock bottom, struggling and then choosing and fighting to rise up.
You see, I’ve recovered from, and dabbled in, just about everything. Everything from more minor stuff like overthinking to more intensely viewed stuff like addictions, anxiety, depression, compulsions and mental battles of all kinds.
However, what I want you to know is that these things were a part of me and my journey to who I am today, but I am just a regular human and now a Mum, just like you.
In my past, my thoughts and behaviours would sometimes get the best of me, but most importantly, deep down I always knew I had the wisdom and ability to bounce back.
I was always me underneath my compulsions, and I, Jen Smith, the warrior, never went anywhere.
I’d get caught up in my own very human traps sometimes, but then I’d remember I had the inherent ability to get unstuck, the very human ability that you have too.
So please, take your time. Poke around. Read some stuff if you feel so inclined and send me a message if you ever want to chat.
I’m totally, completely, 100% human. I fall down sometimes, but I always get back up.
I hope you find the inspiration, love, support, and courage here to do so too. That’s why heretobehuman was born…
To help you feel and finds your strengths too.
This Is Who We Are…
“I didn’t go looking for a Coach! Jen Smith simply showed up for me…at our local gym where I was struggling with massive guilt, shame, and self-loathing! Her beautiful smile and sweet nature was immediately captivating and what a gift she has been to me! I experienced a painless transformation in my thinking that has really helped me set myself free of negative talk toward greater self-acceptance. Thanks for your compassion and for providing me with tools and interventions that are moving me in the right direction!”Jeanne Fike
