I knew this day would come but I wasn’t quite sure when it would be, but it’s time…
This will be my last ever HopeVsHeadaches blog post. I know, it’s an emotional moment. 127 blog posts later and it’s time to end this chapter of my life and start a new one.
Over three years ago when I began this blog I started writing it just as an outlet to express my frustration with how I was feeling. I was chronically sick, depressed and had no hope. My first blog post was entitled “It can only get better”. Says it all.
After trying conventional medicine but to no avail I set out on my journey to heal myself, and along the way, I started sharing this with my audience. Little did I know that it would help them on their healing journeys, and it was through this experience that I developed a passion to help others who were suffering from chronic migraines and headaches.
Suddenly out of my pain became purpose. A purpose so strong inside of me that I knew I was going to dedicate the rest of my life to helping others break free from debilitating migraines and headaches.
At that point in my journey I had no idea quite how that would play out and how this would happen, but little did I know that the universe had it all planned out for me perfectly.
As my healing journey continued, I had discovered this new-found love for all things health and wellness. I read every single book I could, researched everything health-related like a madwoman on the internet, and spent hours educating myself through podcasts until I finally decided to turn my passion into a reality by training to become a Health Coach at The Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
Best decision I ever made may I add.
As I went through the program I had planned to start my own coaching business called Hope Health Coaching, which would specifically be designed for migraine and headache sufferers to help them break free from their pain.
Yet, during the middle of the course, I was contacted through Instagram by Anthony Cocco, also an IIN Health Coach and former 13 years chronic daily migraine sufferer now 8 years migraine free.
Anthony shared with me that he had started a company called Head Health and was currently working on creating the first-ever coaching program for migraines and headaches. His vision blew me away and pretty much straight after our first call we began working on what is now known as The MENT™ Protocol (Migraine Elimination through Neuroindivudal Therapies) which has just wrapped up its 18-week beta test involving over 40 participants with truly astounding results.
During the course of the last few years putting the MENT™ Protocol together, I continued to blog and share my journey as I continued to learn, grow and heal myself, however as we now make the transition with Head Health into taking the company and the protocol to the next level, I know it is time to hang up HopeVsHeadaches blogging shoes for good.
Until now I have managed to juggle both, but I know in my heart that it is time to make the transition and fully commit every single part of me to the success of Head Health so that we can make an impact on sufferers worldwide. Yes, we are aiming BIG! This is our goal.
I am also going to be coming off my HopeVsHeadaches social media account because I have learned that social media doesn’t serve my mental health in anyway shape or form. I spend my life advocating for people to put their health first and it’s taken me a long time to get to this point and this decision because society tells that I ‘should’ be on there and sharing everything with the world 24/7, but I now know that this isn’t the best thing for me. Additionally, all the hours I spent on social media I can now put fully into my own personal development to ensure I become the best I can be for Head Health.
So I wanted to write this post to end this incredible rollercoaster ride of a journey it’s been over the last three years. I want to thank every single person who has ever supported me, shared my content, recommended me to a friend or liked my posts. It is from your continued support that it allowed me to find and live out my purpose and as a result find my true destiny – Head Health. Without you, there is no way that I would be here today so thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Before I sign off I want to give a special shout out to My Mum for correcting my grammar for every single blog post (all 127 of them) and for always being my biggest cheerleader, my incredible husband for supporting me through every single step of my journey never waiving no matter how rough things got, and Anthony Cocco for being the most amazing mentor, friend, business partner and coach. I would not be the person I am today without you coming into my life and for that, I am truly, truly grateful.
Little did I know that when I lost my dream job five years ago and my world came crashing down it was for a reason. A reason far bigger than myself and the universe had a far greater plan for me all along.
If there is anything that I want you to take away from reading my blog and my story it’s the following;
ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE IN LIFE! LITERALLY ANYTHING!
10% IS WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU AND 90% IS HOW YOU REACT TO IT.
YOUR MIND IS ONE THOUSAND TIMES MORE POWERFUL THAN YOU THINK, SO USE IT WISELY.
I didn’t think I would feel this emotional right now writing this. Ok, Kristie Jane, you can do this. If you still want to follow the work I am doing for migraine and headache sufferers the please click here to go to the MENT™ Protocol website to find out more about the program or find us @HeadHealthco on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
I wish I could go back and tell the old Kristie Jane who was writing that first very first blog post three years ago “It Can Only Get Better”, that not only would it get better, that life would become more magical than you ever could have imagined…
