“That was when I realized I was living other people’s life, and not my own.”
Jadwiga shares her Forbidden Revival
My clients lead the most interesting, inspiring lives!
Recently, I asked them to share their stories of awakening, coming into their own–
A period of transformation I call The Forbidden Revival.
The Forbidden Revival refers to the moment, or moments, in which we say “fuck it” to what we’re “supposed” to do, and instead pursue that which makes us feel alive. This change is “forbidden” because we feel as though we’re not allowed to create this new reality, and we are afraid of the consequences should we follow through with the transformation we so desire. This change is a “revival” because you are coming back to life.
I asked each of my clients the same set of questions. Once a month, I will be sharing with you their stories!
What is your name, age, and location?
Jadwiga Kuta, 40, Louisville, KY
In what capacity have you worked with Lux?
I took her original Stripcraft workshop, I attended Stripcabin 2018, and am about to attend Stripcabin 2019.
Complete the sentence: “My greatest awakening as a woman happened when…”
I started pole dancing.
Complete the sentence: “I was busy doing ________________, but I wanted to be doing ______________________.”
I was busy doing work and chores, but I wanted to be doing… well, I wanted to be myself. I wanted to make myself happy.
“What I truly desired was….”
Happiness, freedom, stop feeling guilty about what other people will think of me.
“I knew I needed to make a change when…”
I felt like I was suffocating: from pressure from my peers, from family members, from so-called friends
“I was afraid to make a change because…”
I was afraid what others will think about me: “What’s wrong with her?” That was until I realized I was living other people’s lives, and not my own.
What gave you the courage to make a change in your life?
My pole dancing instructor; she’s very supportive and encouraging, also very open.
How was this change a Forbidden Revival?
I know some people don’t like certain things I’m doing, or they wouldn’t like it if they knew. At this point in my life, I’m finally at the stage of my life, when I start not caring, what other people think about me.
Why did you choose to invest in an experience with Lux?
Attending Stripcabin last year gave me more than I could have imagined. It was revealing, raw and emotional. I was myself without embellishments, and nobody judged me. That’s absolutely invaluable.
Do these questions have you thinking, too? Please, comment and share your answers with me!
I can’t wait to hear from you!
