My name is Katie Dean
and I believe we found each other for a reason
I am crazy about divine timing, turning fear into bravery and I’m a no BS realist served with slappings of spiritual goodness and the downright universally awesome.
I really like my life.
Even when it's rocky I really appreciate it for all it is. We learn way more about ourselves in the valley than we do at the top of a mountain, so I've made it my mission to attempt to embrace it all.
Words. Are. My. Jam.
I don’t know everything about anything, but the pressure really comes off when we look at life like a classroom and become a student of our emotions.
I know that if you have recovered from something, that THAT is seriously the most badass things you can do. Also showing up to the front lines every day to win a war that no one can see is as brave as it gets.
I know that you WILL be ok.
I KNOW THAT I WILL BE OK.
I’m a solo Mumma to two beautiful boys who are my greatest achievements and the reason for so much of the sunshine I see in the world.
They also push buttons I didn’t even know I had, but together we stumble around and some how it turns out to be a dance.
I was married to the boys Dad, now I’m not.
I was sad and really angry for a solid part of my youth, now I’m not.
I have felt true sadness. I have suffered real loss and I have come through stronger and more self assured then ever before. I truly do approve of myself and I want to help others learn to do the same.
HOW DID I GET HERE THOUGH?
I STARTED TO CHOOSE ME.
I STARTED TO TUNE IN.
I gave myself permission to be the one who knew what’s best for me and stopped explaining myself. I started listening to that voice who doesn’t use words and made it my mission to help other women just like you do the same.
I have done the work… I know what it takes.
I have moved from a worrier to a warrior, and for the last 8 years I have been on a quest to help others find their best selves, embrace their badassery.
I’m an Aussie gal who needs nature to realign. My soul belongs by the sea, and my heart feels happy in the mountains.
I am all about a mum bun, I believe leggings are rad AF and if my bra’s already off then I’m not going anywhere.
Giving less shits about things that aren't important will set you free and I had no idea how great life could feel until I stopped waiting for it to be something else and embraced it for what it was.
I know how much our lives can change in a day or even in an instant and I want to ensure that none of my life minutes are ever wasted wondering ‘What if?’.
That is why we are here,
Are we vibing yet?
You are going to LOVE it here if you are about change,
learning to trust yourself, taking chances, happiness, cultivating presence, belly laughs and swearing…
I love a well placed F-Bomb and I stand by that 100%.
I also say 100% a lot.
If you are into those things or wanting more of these delicious things in your world then lady, I’m your gal.
If you are closed off, judgmental, and happy to stay that way, then this probably isn’t the place for you.
However you are always welcome back if you are ready to feel light, inspired and calm. I give great virtual hugs and when you’re ready, I’ll be here.
It’s my aim to be 100% real with you.
I have days where I question everything, I have moments where I’m not sure what I’m doing but these days I never doubt who I am and I want that self assurance for you too.
This is a place free from judgement. We’re all making it up as we go along so let’s all let our weird and wonderful hang out together.
I write because it heals me.
I SHARE BECAUSE IT FUELS ME.
I speak on stages because it connects me to amazing women just like you and I want you to know that we all have the same stuff, we just unpack it differently.
This is a place that will evolve and change just as I do.
It will be filled with all sorts of fabulous things that I believe will help you get your swagger back and remind you that you are a goddess of endless possibilities.
YWL is a place where you can face your fears,
teach them to dance and
live the life you have always imagined.
So my starry eyed friends, are you READY?
Of course you are, you're already here!
