Following my own experience with personal loss and culminating in a tragic accident that claimed the lives of three family members, I found myself lost and alone, feeling unloved and unworthy. I embraced positive thought and attempted to “manifest” my dream life but it always seemed to stay just beyond my reach. In desperation to find an answer and relief from my despair, I embarked on a personal pilgrimage--my very own Walden Pond experience--retreating to an isolated cabin in Tennessee to read, study, reflect and identify practices that would propel me toward a life of greater joy and abundance.  During this time, I was inspired to compose Seven Affirmations that have become part of my daily practice. These Pillars of truth have helped me move past negative emotions and destructive habits to a place of purpose, joy and abundance.

In this weeks episode, Kimberly Spencer founder of "Crown Yourself" shares her powerful story of overcoming one life's biggest obstacles, herself. IN MY STORY, I WAS NEVER ENOUGH.  Not perfect enough. Not smart enough. Not working hard enough. Not skinny enough. Not lovable enough. So I constantly had to PROVE myself. Prove my “enoughness.” And, man did I try. I had so many goals I thought I’d have to clone myself to accomplish them all.  And, to make my battle to prove myself even more challenging, I had many different, seemingly unrelated desires…and goals in every single one of those arenas. Writing, acting, entrepreneurship, musical theater, fitness, film production, women’s issues, building orphanages in India, and beauty pageants (well, that was mostly because I liked the crowns). My first film, BRO', that I co-wrote starred Danny Trejo + was bought by Lionsgate. I competed in Miss CA USA, won Miss Congeniality, and had a whole bunch of other Miss titles. I acted in London at a prestigious school in roles I’d dreamed of being. I became a certified Pilates instructor, was named "Pilates Pro" by Oxygen magazine, and owned my own studio, Fitness with Kim for ten years. I was the president + spokeswoman of a national online company that sold a back stretching device and I pitched it to the first round of "Shark Tank." I ran 4 full marathons. Not a bad start, eh? THAT’S WHEN I REALIZED THE COMMON DENOMINATOR…ME. Because during every single one of my successes, I sabotaged it with either deflecting to my body or deflecting to my current relationship. So for every inch of career success I got, I took two steps back. For every acting success, I would obsess over how I needed to be skinner. For every entrepreneurial success, I was with a bad partner, which would cause tension and friction in my businesses. For every fitness success, again it was being in bad relationships + my body. For my success as a screenwriter, I was in several bad romantic relationships, which took my attention away from continuing to grow down that path. I neglected countless opportunities from fear.  I WAS REPEATING THE SAME BEHAVIOR I GREW UP WITH...SELF SABOTAGE. Codependency. Body deflection. Enoughness. Escapism. Perfectionism. But what each of these really boils down to is fear. Fear of success. Fear of wholeness. And those made me self-sabotage back to the start. Because achieving wholeness + success was never something I was taught or shown. That's when I realized... The belief that I was broken was 100% plagiarized.

Jay Shifman: I live by one mantra: Choose Your Struggle. For much of my early life, I was told that I was living with a debilitating issue of Mental Health. As my condition worsened, I was prescribed more drugs at ever higher doses until, in my early 20s, I was daily taking more than the estimated lethal dosage for multiple drugs and living with a full-blown Addiction to prescription pills. At 23, after two suicide attempts, an overdose, and time spent in an inpatient hospital and a rehab facility, I decided enough was enough and pledged myself to withdraw from all of my prescriptions. Over the next few years, many of my symptoms dissipated. After entering recovery and rebuilding my life, I pledged myself to one mission: choosing my struggle. In a world where many don’t get a first chance, I realized just how lucky I was to get my second. I decided to dedicate my life to making a difference around the topics of Mental Health and Substance Misuse & Recovery. After years of having my struggle chosen for me—to simply make it through the day—I finally chose what to struggle for. Along the way, I have served in a variety of roles aimed at bettering the communities I’ve lived in.  A graduate of Northern Kentucky University with a B.A. in Psychology, I strive every day to end the stigma around the topics of Mental Health and Addiction by telling my story and helping others tell theirs. I have certifications in Psychological First Aid, Drug Policy and the Social Contexts of Mental Health and Illnesses, Suicide Prevention, and Coaching, among others.
