Hi! I’m Chayne. Pronounced just like a boy “Shane.” I am from southern Illinois. Really southern. Like 30 miles from Kentucky southern. I live in a small quiet town with my husband. Together we have one son who was a long awaited for addition who arrived in April 2019. I am currently a stay at home mom. I enjoy baking, self care, and spending time with my friends. Seriously, my girlfriends are my tribe. They keep me sane. My husband is a full time Registered Nurse and is currently finishing up his Master’s Degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner. We’ve had a crazy ride but I wouldn’t change a thing. It’s all a part of my journey that brought me to starting this blog.
I am now a stay at home mom and that has given me the freedom of a schedule that is more flexible than a 9-5 job. It has given me the opportunity to put pen to paper so to speak and get my story out in the open.
It all began when I found myself uncomfortably overweight on our anniversary vacation in 2017. I was miserable. I didn’t even want to look in the mirror. I physically was in pain. I hated all clothes I put on. I didn’t have terrible self image but I was not where I am today. The term “love your body” means so much more to me today than it did 2 years ago. Today I am confident in myself, my choices, and my voice.
You see, I was the judgemental, condemning, know it all who thought she had all the right answers. Having walked in the shoes of the people I so obviously side-eyed has opened up a world of freedoms in my life. The Sacred Soul is my microphone. Every single person that walks the face of the earth is worthy of love, friendship, and kindness. This is simply my heart poured out into a transparent diary of my journey from brokenness to happiness and joy. My hope is to empower others to step out of their comfort zone and dream big. To step into their greatness.
All I want is a platform to be able to uplift, inspire and encourage women to feel free to live their life BIG. There is no reason for guilt, shame, or condemnation. Period.
