They moved to Sydney’s most vibrant and notorious Vietnamese enclave where Pauline and her brothers grew up. A shared passion for food is at the heart of this family’s journey.

Feeling so special to share with you my absolutely magical feeling this morning from some feedback of my last event:

‘I am honoured to have been able to introduce my members, my friends to Charlie; Charlie’s presence and inner beauty captivated the ladies at our seminar. As the seminar progressed, not one of is felt like we were being judged, as Charlie spoke we all listened, her honesty was so refreshing. This lady is not perfect, she is not an illusion she is simply present, you can feel her energy, her passion and you simply cannot help but be swept along on the magical ride that is Charlie de Haas.’ Judie Osbourne, Anytime Fitness Batman’s Bay.

Elation; the Feeling

Its not very often in our lives we get to experience the feeling that is pure elation. The exhilarating feeling of everything being right.

‘If you do what you love, it is the best way to relax.’ Christian Louboutin

 IMG_0018

Elation; 

Noun: Great happiness and exhilaration.

Synonyms: Delight.

Last night I held Be Well; 12 steps to Wellness. This was the first event I held for my own business, for myself.

As I am a perfectionist I had put immense pressure on myself to make sure everything was just perfect…I wanted attendees to think and feel a sense of ‘WOW’.

‘Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.’ Oprah Winfrey

As I was preparing for this event some nerves, my old foes started to settle in. As they began to create ‘what if’ feelings of self doubt and create thoughts of absolute disaster, I had to step back, out of my own mind and contemplate where these little (sneaky, naughty) thoughts were coming from. I took a moment to reflect on how many public speaking events and seminars I had held before and once i counted to 100, I stopped with a sense of relief and belief reignited within myself.

‘Dont aim for success if you want it; jus do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally.’ David Frost

IMG_0186

These fears and thoughts were not from lack of knowledge, I know everything I speak about inside and out, in fact I speak about these things all day every day (especially balance 😉 so how were these sneaky, negative unwanted thoughts creeping into my mind like little unwanted gatecrashers to a party?

The fact is, as I am a perfectionist, I hold myself to a very high standard, I like to be organised and when I want something to be perfect…it will be perfect (obviously these traits can be beneficial at times, detrimental at others). this perfectionism trait was building and creating immense pressure on myself, I had created it.

When you start out in your own business, every small move you make can be a success or perhaps not so good. Like a chess player playing an international tournament, every move you make must be thought about carefully; is it a move in the right direction? What will the possibilities be from this? And also to contemplate the possibility of it not being quite so good.

‘Every great dream begins with a dreamed. always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars and change the world.’ Harriet Tubman

I have in fact given many seminars and educational seminars before, but without the intensity and dependance of my name, growing my business attached.

I had the intention that attendees felt a sense of warmth from the moment they walked in. I come from a day spa background and trained my staff that the moment a client steps through the door is just as important as the treatment itself (some day spas have lost this memo).

I had the intention of attendees feeling and thinking…WOW. Of creating a sense of warmth, love and belonging. that they were in fact in the right place at the right moment.

IMG_0011

I invested my heart, my time and my funds into organising this event to create something special, and I was rewarded with something no amount of money can bu;, with smiles, kind words, even hugs from people who listened. I was ‘wowed’ my words could have that effect? You see, I don’t stand or speak from as manner that is egotistical I speak from a place in my heart, a place that has been there in the shadows with no light to be seen, a place where I have had to face my own inner demons and self sabotage acts, a place of emptiness and feeling lost…a place that is now filled with love for myself and love to give. When I speak I simply want to share.

My goal as a Wellness coach is to inspire 1 person daily, to smile, to make conscious choices and to perhaps love a little more. Just one person, in the words of Mother Theresa…‘Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” 

(I do have every intention of doing great things 🙂

IMG_0067

I am still floating on cloud 9, this feeling is my reward, and it is priceless.

“Real elation is when you feel you could touch a star without standing on tiptoe’ Doug Larson

ELATION; when everything just feels RIGHT. You know those days you wake up and you feel just RIGHT? The outfit works, your hair works (the hair part doesnt happen to often for me), life is GOOD.

When you chase your dreams, you are filled with a sense of passion, greater than any fear. Do what you love, love what you do.

You are exactly where you are meant to be right now, everything you need is already within you. It was quite amusing; when I was preparing my theme and things that I wanted for the event, I already had most of it, some items from years ago, everything you need and want, you already have. Appreciate it.

If you want to make a change, in the terms of Nike; JUST DO IT.

Love & light, Charlie x.
