My name is Yonci (pronounced "yawn-see"). I am a divorced mother of two who last summer left her cushy job in corporate America to pursue her dreams of being a full-time content creator.
After "enduring" 12 years of marriage (yes, I did hard time), I decided that the pain of staying outweighed my fear of leaving. The fear of the unknown was crippling - how would I survive on my own? Would I ever find love? Would my children recover from the drastic lifestyle change? Would I be judged for ending my marriage?
For so long I was paralyzed by fear but finally decided nothing could be worse than being miserable.
At the beginning, my ex-husband was the enemy. Shoot, he was the devil himself in my mind.... but then I took a look inside. I specifically prayed a prayer for the Lord to show me myself... from his eyes. I wanted to see what he saw. I wanted an outsider's perspective.
And then it happened. God answered my prayer. And oh lawd, did He answer my prayers. The "knowing" rushed into my brain like someone downloading a file to a computer.
I saw the judgmental, hypocritical, oober-devensive, undisciplined, lazy woman that he saw. I bawled my eyes out (you know the ugly cry with snot dropping down your face and the guttural moans that are anything from cute?)
My marriage in my estimation was far from repair and in my mind the window of him ever loving me had closed. And to be honest. I was ready for a fresh start. I wasn't the same person I was at 35 as I was as a young college grad who dreamt of being a beautiful bride. I wanted a clean slate. I wanted to work on me... so I began CHASING YONCI.
I wanted to discover who I was so that I could properly present myself to the world, whole and fulfilled. I wanted to decide the standards that would dictate my actions. I wanted to love who I saw in the mirror.
And little by little it happened. I began to grow and evolve into a woman I could truly be proud of. I leaned completely on my faith and began to trust God fully. I studied His word for wisdom and strength. I began to take ownership of my choices. I stopped making excuses. I decided to change all of the things that were in my power to change. I learned how to monitor my thoughts and control my mind. A whole new world opened up to me.
I begin to feel so alive.
And now I want to teach others how to do the same. I believe that most people are living only a fraction of the life that they were intended to live. They are living in grey when there is an entire universe of color waiting for them.
I am so glad that He gave me the courage to quit my day job and start pursuing my passion because I believe that is what I was put on this planet to do – encourage others.
Join me in my Facebook group called “The Sunshine Club” where I serve as an accountability partner for the members. I meet virtually with my online community each Tuesday as we do a video call to discuss our progress from the last 7 days and declare our goals for the upcoming week. Each day I check-in via group posts and see who has hit their daily goals (meditation & exercise.)
