Inspiring new book features 16 women who overcame challenges to find success and purpose as entrepreneurs
USA, January 4, 2021 Moirar Leveille, founder of Moirar Holistic Wellness on Nantucket, suffered from anxiety, depression, Graves’ disease, and hyperthyroidism, all brought on by the stress of living where she didn’t feel welcome, having to move every six months, working three jobs, and caring for her children. Something had to happen, and that something was a decision.
“I didn’t have any money. I had to make the impossible possible. At some point, to go to the next level, you start creating out of nowhere,” she explains. “When you make the decision, then you shape your life. When you make the decision, you become very resourceful.”
As a woman of color on a majority white island, Moirar found workshops and mentors to help her move forward. She read a lot, she meditated, she reminded herself that she was born with everything that she needed to become and stay successful. She also took it slow. “Take time, stay still for a moment, plan, and strategize,” she advises. “As women, we think we have superpowers: We do everything at the same time and then nothing is done at the end. I did that. But then I focused my thoughts, my strength, and I said, ‘I’m going to start. I’m going to take one class. I’m going to take one step at a time.’”
Now, as a Licensed mental health practitioner and two times best selling published author, Moirar is guiding other women along their paths to holistic wellness. She prefers the term “mind health” over “mental illness,” and sees keeping your mind healthy as no different from keeping your body healthy. Just as you feed your body, you feed your mind. Counseling, for example, can be that nutrition your mind needs so that you can understand the mindsets that are holding you back in life.
“I help people find emotional, physical, and mental health relief so they can become their best self,” Moirar says. “Just do the little thing you need to do and believe in your success. Write it down and review it. Be consistent. For women of color, it’s doubly hard for us, because there’s a set of dreams that we didn’t have the right model for to just follow a path. But if the path doesn’t exist, create it. We are not who we think we are based on our circumstances. We create who we will become by consistently focusing on who we want to become.”
