I’m Tess, The woman behind this blog.
Writer, ocean dweller,
certified life coach
and psychology student
I write and share my journey to help people navigate life on their terms and be their most courageous self.
To me, being your most courageous self is about making choices
that honours your truth, supports your values, your wellbeing and YOU.
It’s choosing to be brave in the midst of chaos while taking steps to rise from the setbacks.
It’s living life authentically and on your terms.
This is what living The Untamed Life is all about.
I’ve openly been sharing my untamed journey for a while now.
From hospitalisation, deep depression, breakdowns and breakups, business start-ups,
moving houses, starting over for the umpteenth time and everything else in-between.
This journey has allowed me to grow, learn, be brave, transform any situation and find joy again, time and time again ..
It all just started out as something I needed to do for myself at a time my world was rapidly changing, inside and out.
It began as a basic blog which took on many different forms over the years.
I didn’t realise the impact it would make,
and the work it would attract.
It’s led to some pretty great opportunities & amazing collaborations.
Then in 2018 after being in business for almost ten years,
I took some time off and decided to slow down and explore and focus on other passions.
But writing from the heart is my happy place.
It’s my creative outlet, how I best express what’s important to me and It’s been my biggest healer.
It is here I want to share that with you,
With the hope you too can get something out of it.
WELCOME TO MY BLOG
THE UNTAMED LIFE
This blog will inspire you to see each day as an opportunity to expand, grow and reach new heights!
It’s about digging deep to discover the things that really matter, and shifting your mindset to one that is strong and empowers you.
It’s a space for the rebels who desire more joy, & want success on their own terms, with the courage & resilience to pursue it.
I hope you will join me as we navigate this untamed journey together
