Natrella 2022 Wrapped 🙌🏾

2022 has been a really good year for us on this side. We added 4 activities to our app, had our first collaborations with creators in Kenya & South Africa, found our footing on Instagram & cultivated a lovely community that’s aware of & keen on practicing self-care. We also launched our first set of self-care goodies with affirmation cards, journal prompt cards & relationship builder cards that are available in both physical & digital formats. And we also took a dive into planning our first (virtual) workshop, Same Dreams, Fresh Start which will be held in January (learn more here). You can buy them here or get a ticket here because you know, ‘tis the season!


But enough about Natrella as the company, today the Natrella team is sharing bits and pieces of our 2022 with you so you can get to know us a bit more & see more of the people making self-care simple, fun, practical & accessible.

My 2022 Wrapped

Wins

  • Started working with such a lovely people on Natrella :)

  • Took scary steps towards being in the kind of work environment that I want to be in. One that is exciting, innovative and supportive!


Lessons
  • This year I learned a lot about the difference between asking for help versus being open to receiving help. The two are very separate steps that have forced me to be more vulnerable but are wonderful when they go hand in hand.

  • I’ve embraced a new kind of discomfort that I’ve grown so much in. Leaving a stable, corporate job to work on a startup I’ve dreamed about for so long has opened me up to realizing that I have a strong say over my happiness - and a right to pursue it.

  • I started allowing myself to speak up about being loved in ways that truly align with who I am and are authentic to my being in every way.


Faves
  • Wendy and Jo - becoming an amazing little team of 3 is by far my fave thing of 2022!

  • Getting such strong feedback and confirmation that we’re actually helping people with Natrella!

My 2022 Wrapped

Wins
  • Joined incredible people in building impactful services like Natrella.

  • Began therapy and consistently practiced self love and care.


Lessons
  • I started nurturing love from within and began to feel more comfortable with myself and unleashed an insane amount of self awareness and confidence.

  • I became aware of the idea of limited beliefs, discovered some and began letting go. My emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing have greatly benefited and are always in consideration to how I approach everything moving forward.

  • I found purpose in the need for struggle. Having more tolerance for discomfort and less for BS while being able to identify what aligns with you because the idea of balance strikes both ends.


Faves
  • Joining Natrella

  • When I became intentional in seeking and nurturing self care and love.


Movies of the Year
  • Doctor Strange 2

  • Everything, Everywhere, All At Once

  • Black Panther 2


Book of the Year
  • The Road to Character - David Brooks

"I believe in helping people create lasting change especially when it comes to our relationships with ourselves by promoting self-care, self-love, self-acceptance, self-awareness and discovery."

My 2022 Wrapped

Wins

  • I took a leap & joined the best team I’ve ever worked with here in Natrella.

  • Got very serious with my therapy private practice and invested in getting coaching training so I can be a wellness coach & help women prioritize their needs & take care of themselves.


Lessons
  • The only constant in my life is me and so I owe it to myself to honor my boundaries, fight for/stand up for myself and invest in the life I dream of.

  • Much as I’ve been doing things by myself for most of my life, asking for help, leaning on people and actually receiving help (from the right people) will not kill me. If anything, it’ll help me get further along with my goals.

  • I really stand in my own way a lot. In the way of my success, joy etc because of my limiting beliefs. Slowly unlearning that & reaffirming myself & my success.


Faves
  • Of course, being part of the Natrella Team!

  • My support system, wow! Those girls really got my back and stay filling my cup.


Movies of the Year
  • Everything, Everywhere All At Once

  • Woman King

  • Black Panther 2


Book of the Year
  • Home Going - Yaa Gyasi
