Hello and Welcome!
I’m Lucy-Anne Lewis. Also known as Lucy, Luce, the Real Life Rebel and ‘MUUUUUUMMMMMMM’.
And, I used to be just like you. Afraid to take up space in the world. Trying to live that ‘good girl’ life. Never saying ‘No’ to shit I didn’t want to do, but instead putting myself in situations that I hated, because I couldn’t let anyone down right? I had all these expectations that I needed to live up to. Or, die trying. Because that’s what I was supposed to do.
But, that’s so exhausting. And, it absolutely does not have to be that way.
Being the ‘good girl’ keeps you in jobs and situations that you hate. Relationships that are less than you deserve, and keeps you from doing the things that bring you joy. Stops you from having fun.
How Do I Know?
I’ve lived it. I’ve stayed in jobs (timed toilet breaks anyone?) relationships (hello, emotional manipulation and abuse), and friendships (all take and no give) for FAR longer than I should have because that’s what I was ‘supposed’ to do. I lived with an eating disorder, literally starving myself, because you aren’t supposed to look like me and love who you are. That’s not allowed.
And, when I was doing all this shit, do you know what I gained? Absolutely nothing. Zero. I didn’t gain a thing. I only lost. I spent over half my life hating who I was. Crying myself to sleep at night, wishing I would wake up and be somebody different. I put up with shit that was not meant for me. That was far less than I deserved, because I was so afraid to be who I actually was.
It all became too much for me to carry. I simply could not keep on. I reached out. I got help. I changed everything.
I decided that even if I was on my own for the rest of my life, that I would be happy. I decided that I was not going to change myself to try to fit in with people anymore. I set myself on the path to belonging to myself. And it changed everything.
I will not negotiate who I am with anyone. I get explosively excited about things. I have child like joy. I own my ‘too muchness’. I love and accept who I am, and I claim my rightful space in the world.
And, you can too.
What I know to be absolutely true is that you deserve to be exactly who you are. You deserve to love and accept yourself. You are here to belong. You belong in the world. You deserve to be excited about your life, and to sink deeper in love with yourself with each passing year. You do not owe anyone a ‘perfect’ version of yourself. You don’t owe anyone anything. You get to live your life the way you want to live it.
Loving yourself is a rebellious act. Be a rebel.
I am here to change the world, by changing the way people see themselves. I am here to lead a Self Love Revolution.
Get to know me a little more.
I’m married to my best friend, and together we have a daughter, her name is Matilda. Motherhood both broke me, and made me whole. She is wild spirit, a firecracker, who already knows her own mind, and takes no shit. I love them fiercely.
I believe food is magic, and I am here for it.
In Human Design, I am a Generator. I pull life to me. I am super magnetic, and I am here to respond to what the Universe brings me.
I love to journal. Nothing brings me more clarity. I’ve uncovered the answers to many questions within the pages of my journal.
I’ve learned to embrace the fact that I”m a messy person, clean, but messy.
I have a sausage dog named Kransky The Sausage.
I wholeheartedly believe that everyone is doing the best they can, and that we are all worthy.
My superpower is holding space for you to go on your journey. To get vulnerable and break out of what is holding you back.
I am here to use my voice. So I started a podcast. The Real Life Rebel Podcast.
I have a Diploma of Counselling. I’m a qualified Life Coach. And, and Advanced Certified NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback practitioner.
I believe in radical self love.
If any of this speaks to you, then I would love nothing more than to hear from you. You can find out how to work with me here, or send me a message here. Please, feel free to ask me anything. I can’t wait to hear from you.
