My name is Mel and I’ll be the first to admit I’m a recovering hot mess.
I used to live a life of overwhelm and always trying to get it just right. I had to be perfect… like some weird, completely illogical need to be perfect. Not just good… but perfect. What an exhausted, totally unfulfilled life!
About Salty Girl
But then I was diagnosed with autoimmune disease that really put a wrench in my typically active, go-getter lifestyle. I found myself completely lost and feeling totally out of control with a body that wouldn’t do all the stuff it used to.
And when you feel like you can no longer be the person you had designed yourself to be, you find yourself faced with two choices: first, you can either give in and get depressed or you can start working on designing a new you, limitations and all.
As a result, I went back to the ol’ drawing board and decided what I wanted in life.
Above all else, I wanted to experience joy. I wanted to feel fulfilled in a way that didn’t make sense given my circumstances. To have hope not only filling my cup, but overflowing it so that I had enough to give to others. And the only way to do that was to completely give in and let God do his work.
For that reason, I decided that even though my illness had taken away my physical abilities, there was no way it would steal my joy.
And that’s how Salty Girl Wellness was born. Because I was tired of living a bland life and giving in to my illness. I wanted to get that saltiness back that Matthew 5:13 talks about: “You are like salt for everyone on earth. But if salt no longer tastes like salt, how can it make food salty? All it is good for is to be thrown out and walked on.”
It seems that God made me for more than living a horizontal life on a couch.
He certainly gave me plenty of ammunition to get through so many rough times. So, I knew He was asking me to share my story, my triumphs, and my coaching so that YOU can find that same kind of joy again.
That’s why I am here as your motivator and guide; to give you insight into living a life of joy no matter how sucky your health might be; as the salt in an otherwise dull world.
