Feeling relentlessly stuck and capable of sinking only further, I was struck by an initiative to change.
Lani’s coaching principles, values, and her willingness to appease my burden, were unmistakable. She attentively empathized with me over the uphill, piggybacking of social angst.
In the summer of 2015, determined to enlighten the crowd as best-man at my brother’s wedding, I had rehearsed my speech ad nauseam. Although my hands mimicked helicopter blades, and the trembling convinced the guests that I was capable of being a human jackhammer, I finished. Like a short-tailed squall, it was over. Yet I felt that a crucial component was missing.
Had I found Lani prior to the wedding, I know, that the sense of control I had lacked during those moments, would have instead been harnessed with composure and spontaneity. I’m wholeheartedly convinced that the resources discovered through her, would have transformed word-for-word dialogue, into sought after, lighthearted, barbershop banter.
Through countless interactions with wellness professionals, it’s a privilege to be in the presence of an established individual who truly listens. Lani’s compassion assures you that confiding in her, is the invitation to finally releasing your pain.
Because she has overcome parallel tribulations, not only do her methods hit home, but I find solace in her uplifting authenticity. Investing your trust in Lani will enable you to flow more effortlessly through life, steamrolling your most heavily-fortified boundaries in the process.
Words may not convey the extent of gratitude I have for Lani; for the tactics that have propelled me from the never-ending quicksand, for having faith in bettering the human condition, and of course, for the madeleines…which will always hold a spot, both in my pocket and my heart.
