Motto: “The rewards for working through obstacles define who we are and make the success of our persistence even sweeter.”-Tami Fitzpatrick
Tami’s daughter created the word “hyperlusinating” when she was 7 years old. After playing with her dolls under her blanket she giggled, threw back the cover and burst out with “Mom, I’m hyperlucinating!” and so it began. Tami has incorporated a “hyperhappy” approach to life ever since. Her message to you? Hyperilluminate your day and don’t let anyone douse your flame!
“Women are already strong. We just need to remind ourselves of this more often. Especially when failures, challenges and obstacles bring us down. Learn to shift your mindset and tell yourself it was a meaningful lesson on your path to calm wisdom, then focus FORWARD. Once you survive setbacks and trauma of any kind, don’t look back at it with fear. It’s done. Set your sights on what You DESIRE, not what you’ve had. Lastly, when you struggle, don’t hide or seclude yourself as we often do for a number of reasons. Tell someone. Tell your tribe. If they don’t help and support you, than they’re not the right tribe for you. Start today to Hyperlove yourself.”
