I’m growing up in post-communist Poland in a tiny 100-square-foot apartment where my sister and I share a tiny room. I listen to Spice Girls (girl power!) and my parents who lovingly want to prevent me from ‘getting disappointed’ in life. They tell me, “Don’t aim too high, get a ‘real’ job, and follow the crowd.” I already feel like I don’t belong, and my life hasn’t even properly started.
I spend a whole summer working three jobs to save enough money to buy a ticket to Australia so I can study English. I leave 2 very disappointed Polish parents behind. (Being okay with ‘disappointing’ people is crucial for growth, as I learned later in life!) Two weeks into the trip, I barely survive a freak car accident, which leaves me disabled for months in a foreign country without a job.
I spend a year sailing across the Pacific with no phone or laptop, just me and my then-partner. It’s the first time in my life I understand what it means to connect with myself and immediately see how much of myself I lost in the relationship that I was sure I would stay in forever.
After my partner tears apart my passport and tells me I can never leave him, I find a way out of the country with $480 in my pocket (always have a secret stash, ladies!). I buy a one-way ticket to LA and stay on my friend Sandy’s couch for 6 months feeling super sorry for myself, fighting insomnia, smoking weed and going to a local Fresh&Easy after 8p because the produce that’s about to go bad goes on 50% sale.
My American love Michael and I get married so we can stay together and I convince him to travel the world with me. He only left the US twice in his life and doesn’t like traveling or taking photos. I beg him to try. I can’t imagine doing anything else in life. He agrees. Travel in Her Shoes is started.
My Instagram is booming. I go from 280k followers to 900k in 8 months. I make $1 million in first 6 months of selling my photo presets. I buy my parents an apartment. I donate a big chunk of the money to charity. I’m the perfect Aggie. Life is good.
Michael and I decide to get divorced. I pack all my stuff into storage but we fight about money, dogs, house, and cars. I’m devastated and in so much shame about not being so perfect anymore. I self-sabotage everything. It seems like the entire world hates me. Friends unfollow me. And all I really want to do is no longer exist. What I don’t see is that the Universe is serving me the best medicine I could ask for.
I fight deep depression. Suicidal thoughts are real. I’ve spent the last six years sacrificing so much for what I thought would bring me joy: Instagram following, big money, traveling and yet, I feel beyond empty. (That’s what happens when you give away your power and derive your self-worth from external validation.)I suffer from hair loss and put on a lot of weight. I lose most of my money, and go from one toxic relationship to another. Panic attacks are the new norm. A true rock bottom.
I reconnect with that quiet voice in my head I’ve been ignoring and pull myself back together. I do a TEDtalk. I Publish my book. (Wait, me? A book in English? I barely spoke the language not too long ago?!) Instatravel is sold in every bookstore in New York, including every Target and Costco.I interview a lot of smart people for my podcast.Fall in love. Life isn’t perfect but is starting to *feel* good not only seem good.
My first experiences with plant medicine ceremonies rewire my sense of service and purpose. Jay Shetty reaches out and offers me his coaching course as a gift. I make my lifelong dream happen and get to dance on Dancing with the Stars.
