Camaron tells her story
She was wrapped out in the achievement, she felt she needed to achieve to feel worthy that's why she chose a profession that was prestigious and well known. The time came to be a mom she got burned out, tired of pushing something that didn't feel right. She went to see a life coach, therapist even a psychic. She realized that there is more of her than just her career. When her son was born, her eyes were opened to a loving nature. She had failed relationships, had bad habits; took her ten years to work through that stuff and now she is in a good place.
What is your goal?
Camaron’s goal is to connect with other mothers. She found out that being a mom is powerful but such a struggle because of the influence from the books we read, our ideals and ideas of who we want to be as a mom but sometimes doesn't really translate of who we are.
How do you balance being a nurturing mother and having a career?
She is lucky that her husband is the provider of the family and what money she makes on the side is just extra. Eventually, she will go back to work not anytime soon since she is pregnant with her third child.
Camaron talks about her book.
The book is about her transition from being a working reporter to a mom. It has anecdotal stories about motherhood and about her work as a reporter.
What is the lowest point in your life?
When she was 26, her back gave out. She couldn't get out of bed, cannot even go to the shower. She is thinking why this happening what is going on is. She went to see a chiropractor and was advised to work on herself and take care of her back. It was a wake-up call for her; she is drinking a lot, spending too much money. But she still looked back on that experience, especially when sharing it with her friends that are going through the same time. Kyla also shared that her lower points are the ones that brought her to where she is now.
Camaron talks about her back pains and what she did to heal it.
Cameron’s body signals her that what she is doing to her body is not working. When her back is starting to be an issue; she stretches, do some yoga, do self-massage and she stopped running.
What is your healing modality that supported you on your transformation?
Camaron said that her healing mode is changing her mindset and being more compassionate. She learned how to do it from the books she read; Return to Love, The Gifts of Imperfection. She added getting a life coach and going to therapy helped her too.
