What got me here?

We are defined by the person we are each day, and we have the ability each day to change that definition. At a young age I suffered from the first of a few traumatic events in my life, and for awhile those events defined me. They changed how I viewed myself and those around me. My experiences defined how others viewed me. It took me a long time to realize that I could change that definition.

Learning to love myself and find satisfaction within instead of from an outside source is a necessity to a healthy lifestyle, one which provides great personal pride for overcoming the obstacles in front of me. No path is free from branches, rocks and holes but if you can find the beauty and growth in those branches, rocks and holes then you define your path instead of it defining you.

There are left over consequences of those early life experiences that I will be left with forever, but it's what I choose to do with it that matters. 

So Why Pink Umbrella?

Pink Umbrella is for collaboration, growth and wellness.  In our  professional lives and our personal lives. 

We can do things one way alone, and another together. Neither is right or wrong, but we are stronger together.

Growing up I wanted to find a place that I could relax, get guidance and support, and find my path forward.  That didn't really exist, so I built it. 

One of the questions I am asked the most during conversations with our guests is why the name?  

Pink = Universal colour of self love and love for others

Umbrella = a safe place for everyone, an Umbrella protects every person that uses it - no matter the situation.

Retreat = Sometimes to grow, we must take a step back. Question our desires and goals, and redesign our path. 

Centre = well at the centre of everything is a true you. 

Plus PURC sounds like PERK and this is a perfect space to PURC up mentally, emotionally and physically.
