Hi, my name is Meriam Boldewijn. I am happily married and I’m 50 years old. In November 2013, I launched my webshop in exclusive plus size clothing. I’m still blown away that I have been able to give more than IK plus size women more confidence, see the beauty in themselves, and love themselves. I dressed a few well-known women in The Netherlands and worked with a presenter of a famous bridal company in the USA.
But it was not always like that…
There was a time when my husband was a diabetic, on dialysis and he had a kidney/pancreas transplant surgery. Not only that, he had groin rupture, several eye surgeries, ankle surgery. While taking care of my husband I burnt out. When he was doing better, in November 2012, while I was at the office, I received a call from my brother. He called me while having a severe stroke and got partially paralyzed…
Taking care of my husband and my brother was a huge weight on my shoulder. However, I taught myself some techniques that helped me to own my well-being.
Fast forward to today, I closed my webshop and in August 2020, I started writing a book about my caregiver's journey. I recently launched my 6-week LIVE online program Caregiver 2.0.
As a result of my coaching program Caregiver 2.0, caregivers who spend their lifetimes helping others, learn in just 6 weeks how to reduce stress, release the guilt and shame of sometimes one day to actually put themselves first, and they now implement a simple strategy when the thought comes in their mind: why me!
People who are searching for me are caregivers who take care of others, who are done struggling and ready to revitalize their own energy, finally able to begin to prioritize them as number one first before they take care of anybody else, which now extends their own quality of life, so they can breathe better, live more and finally help others from a place of their overflow.
If you or someone you know is a caregiver and you know that you are worthy of a wonderful life too, but you don’t know how to create it, then this program is for you. I invite you to join me: https://caregiver20.as.me/schedule.php
