Q and A with Breanna from Los Angeles, California
“How you do one thing is how you do everything.”
Q: What are you passionate about?
A: I’m passionate about living a peaceful and purposeful life. I love helping others create this in their lives as well. I’m very intentional with the things I do. I love to learn and expand while also being mindful of the importance of rest and relaxation. I allow myself to have fun with everything. I recently decided to learn to play tennis and it’s been really fun. I’ve had lots of people ask me why I want to learn tennis (honestly they ask me that for most of my hobbies) and my answer is always why not? Why not have fun and try something new that I may grow to love? I believe that we should have the choice to live lives that we absolutely love and are grateful for. This is the reason I started mindset coaching. I’ve met lots of people who felt that their true desires weren’t within reach. They were only doing things out of obligation instead of enjoyment. Mostly due to limiting beliefs put on them by others or self-doubt that had developed over the years.
Q: What were your younger years like?
A: My younger years were very balanced. My father believed in structure and discipline while my mother was a bit more carefree and lenient. I grew up spending time with friends and family while also studying, reading, and doing self-care and personal development things. I was fascinated with making myself smoothies, doing beauty treatments at home, writing out my goals, and shopping. I even went to cosmetology school during high school. I was always pretty organized and have always had a lot of interests. However, my interest in self-improvement has remained constant.
Q: What is something valuable you’d like others to know?
A: How you do one thing is how you do everything. I heard this and it really stuck. I could easily see how this saying resonated in many areas of my life. My behaviors and habits in one area oftentimes pour into other areas. For example, if I am too tired to take my makeup off at the end of the night, the next day I might skip my workout because I just don’t feel like it. The chances of me skipping or giving leniency to something else dramatically increases. I’ve learned to look at my behaviors and habits from the place of the future version of myself, which I call “The Best Version of Myself.” I always ask myself, “Would the best version of you do this?” This helps to keep me disciplined and in alignment with what I ultimately desire for myself. I also find that it keeps me accountable. Of course, I use this ideology with my best judgment. I listen to my body and allow myself to be guided by my intuition because sometimes I do need to take a break.
Q: What does feminism mean to you?
A: To me, feminism means that women should have the choice to choose various aspects of their lives. It’s not a one-size-fits-all. Not every woman wants the same things out of life, but I think it’s safe to say that we all want to live fulfilling lives. For one, that may look like having a thriving career, while for another, it could look like having a family to care for. And let’s not forget about the women who want both. I think that we should support each other’s wishes even if we want different things for ourselves.
