it's time to make some shifts.

let me tell ya how i did it.

my story...

I live in Cornwall, UK ,where you can find me eating roast dinners, exploring new beaches, or chilling with a good series on Netflix.

 I'm a Mindset Coach, Patient Advocate and lover of life.

I help millennials with long term health conditions find joy and happiness by becoming more purposeful in the present. 

A transplant COACH, PODCASTER, AND TRANSPLANT SURIVOR.  

I'm eliza.

Hey ya!

it was only when...

I always thought having a purpose was a big deal!

I would be stuck at home aged 19, swiping through Instagram.  Watching my friends having the best time of their lives at university, preparing themselves for their future amazing lives. Creating their purpose one lecture at a time.

I was desperate for purpose. I craved it. I wanted a job to my name.
 A university I was proud to be part of.

But I couldn’t, because I had multiple chronic illnesses and I could barely get out of bed to leave the house (let alone do the above).  

My Story

I was placed on the urgent transplant list did i realise what true purpose and joy was. 

You're probably wondering.. How could you gain purpose when you're so close to death?

Well, It was at this point I realised my purpose was to survive.

I realised that focusing on the weeks/ months ahead wasn’t going to work for me.

My conditions were so sporadic, I couldn’t plan to save my life (quite literally).

So I started to focus on the day ahead of me. I would concentrate on getting up in the morning, eating enough food so I could take my tablets, trying to move my body, checking if I had any hospital appointments coming up, checking in on how my body was feeling and REALLY enjoying the little wins and happy moments through out the day.

I soon realised having a degree or a job to my name wasn't the thing that was going to give me true purpose. Perhaps It was more of an excuse or form of distraction I wanted to use to cover up the bigger issues in my life (I.e my chronic Illness).  

With a change in mindset and a change of my core habits I started to transform and rediscover joy, even with just months left to live.
