This class is anyone who has ever struggled with low self-esteem. It's for students, entrepreneurs, and stay-at-home moms. It's for the person who feels unsatisfied with their life or body, goes through every day on autopilot, or can't seem to stop comparing themselves to other people. It's for people who are ready to start smiling when they look in the mirror instead of spiraling.
"Having spent many years trapped in a vicious cycle of body dysmorphia, toxic relationships and binge eating disorder I understood what it was to wake up everyday looking in the mirror and not seeing beauty or feeling any sort of self love. I constantly compared myself to others instead of looking at the gifts I already possessed within me. The day I met Mary changed me forever. She picked up all the pieces and put me back together like a puzzle. She helped me to rid negativity and energy vampires out of my life and for the first time I realized I was more than my weight. I was and am beautiful. She made me appreciate the small things and for someone like myself who has struggled with depression, she showed me that I did deserve love and acceptance that maybe the world isn't such a bad place and that there are good people doing great things. What she has given me is priceless and I am forever grateful."
“Uncustomary changed my life! My body feels clean feels smooth and I just feel completely changed my spirit is different and I am so much more relaxed! I encourage you too, to take this course; it’s life changing!”
Self-love completely changed my life.
I've suffered from mental illness since I was eight-years-old, and I'm no stranger to those struggles. I took medication that caused me to gain one-hundred pounds, and I know what it's like to be uncomfortable with your body and feel like you hate it. I know what it's like to feel worthless, hopeless, and ugly.
I also know that it's possible to see the light again and come out the other side. You can love your body the same way you did when you were a child. Happiness is possible for you because it was possible for me.
Self-love is the biggest and most important tool to becoming a happier person.
After learning to love myself and my body, I was able to quit my day job and make a living doing what I'm truly passionate about.
I've been able to build a strong core group of friends who support and inspire me. I've been able to release people who don't make me happy in life.
I've entered the healthiest romantic relationship of my life, free of drama and judgement and full of love and understanding.
I've been able to step out into the public eye with less than nothing on, and stand up for what I believe -- that all bodies are beautiful. I've been able to throw caution to the wind and forget about the definition of "flattering".
This is possible for you!
- I want you to be happy with your job, your relationships, and with yourself.
- I want you to find pleasure and joy in your world every single day.
- I want you to be able to bounce back from adversity quickly with an optimistic attitude.
- I want you to wear what you want, when you want, and forget about outside opinions.
I believe my life’s mission is making other people happy. I came up with the job title of Merriment Maker because nothing else fit, so I made my own place in the world.
For almost twenty-five years, I have struggled with half a dozen mental illnesses, and I know what the dark side looks like very well. I also know it’s possible to live a happy live not in spite of your struggles, but with them, and want to help as many people push through the dark tunnel to the other side where they’ll land on a pile of glitter.
After quitting my day job of 5 years at a psychiatric rehab center, I started my business, Uncustomary, as a way to inspire others through my own life as a living example of what Merriment can look like in a realistic, messy way. I do that through self-love, spirituality, and creativity. My goal is to leave you feeling better than when you found me.
