I’m Paola Cárdenas. I love connecting with people one-on-one. It’s one of my favorite feelings in life. It feels like arriving to a safe home that nurtures intimacy and true connection.
I have always been a planner and a goal setter. The BIG difference between the goals I was setting before and the goals I set now: the goals I was working so hard for in the past were more in line with what I felt others expected me to accomplish. The goals I set now come from a place of authenticity. These goals are my deepest desires that I was too afraid to share with the world and thought were “impossible” to accomplish.
I feel my purpose is to listen intently to others and help bring awareness of ALL the possibilities that life has to offer.
Living this purpose was not always the case for me.
In the past, I felt like I was going through life checking off boxes – getting the degree, landing a career in my field, maintaining that long term relationship, planning to get married…
And while on the outside it may have seemed that I was happy and successful, I felt completely unfulfilled. I felt I was in an inauthentic life. I felt that there must be more to life than this path.
This is what I call the auto-pilot phase. That cookie cutter life wrapped in safety and “shoulds”.
Looking back at this moment in my life, I was basically checking off items off a list. While there’s NOTHING wrong with following this life path, I realized that this path was not making ME feel 100% fulfilled and that I didn’t have to follow this if I didn’t want to. So I started to make some changes.
- I changed my environment and moved to another country.
- I left a long term relationship to find, heal and fall in love with myself.
- I left the 9-5 lifestyle and went 100% remote.
- I speak up about what I really need and want, without feeling guilty, selfish or feeling responsible for what others might think or feel about my truth(s).
