July 12, 2013 was the last day of my former life. The life where I was a managing partner and the director of events for a big, swanky, successful nightclub. The life where I was glued to my Blackberry and kept three pairs of high heels under my desk for easy access before meetings.

I can't emphasize enough how important it is to really know what your body and mind are trying to tell you.
