Hi, I’m Alexandra.
At the peak of my communications career, I felt lost and lacked purpose. I just couldn’t put my finger on what was missing. It made me question everything in my life, and worst of all, it made me question myself.
I thought a three-month drum and dance sabbatical in West Africa would bring me happiness and all the answers I sought. Well, it didn’t deliver the happiness I thought it would.
Still, it turned my life upside down: I made the life-altering decision to trade my high-paying job for a volunteering position in Southern Africa.
In hindsight, I know the “why”!
I didn’t feel good enough to do my job! Hello, imposter syndrome!
Back then, my mind justified my move by telling me I just wanted to do a job with meaning and purpose!
Escaping to Africa wasn’t the solution either, though! At least not for this point in my life…
What followed were a few years of stumbling aimlessly through life, hoping to find something that would make me happy and fill the unexplainable void I felt deep inside. No matter where I moved to, what job I did, or how long I travelled on a sabbatical, nothing helped!
Knowing what I know now, I understand that my midlife crisis was in full swing…
It took me two years to finally reach out for help. I worked with excellent coaches and mentors to kick-start my journey to my ikigai – my reason for being!
You might wonder, what took me so long?
I was too afraid to seek support! I felt ashamed as all of my friends seemed to have their “poop together”. They were in relationships, getting married, purchasing their first property, starting a family, and having a career that seemingly made them happy.
I felt like the odd one out and thought I had to figure out life by myself.
But, once I reached out for help and started working on my self-doubts, I discovered my true self. And the more my inner world changed, my outer world unfolded in the most exciting ways.
The golden thread through all of my experiences?
I embraced transformation through personal growth with and in nature, away from the hustle and bustle of my life.
Today, I manage my African travel and nature coaching business, which gives me meaning in my career. I feel fulfilled and happy and do something I love every single day. You see, that escape to Africa was significant after all!
