Death of celebrities usually doesn’t face me but there’s always an exception such as the death of Robin Williams. I haven’t watched any of his movies since his death – and similar the death of Chester Bennington impacted me the same. I tend to change the channel or song with Linking Park hits the speakers.

I don’t hide my growing up in foster care and the pain and struggle I experienced that followed me into adulthood – it’s not been easy but a necessary healing journey so I could break some demented cycle.

I think the first time I heard “In the end” it hit me with such clarity that the longer I stayed victim to the stories I told myself, and using the experiences as an excuse, I would never fulfill my dream.

Every single moment and experience are part of my journey. A journey that was hard as fuck and yet perhaps even awe-inspiring. When my son was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder that has a high fatality – I realized within seconds that life’s too short. Each moment – good or bad – matters.

So many moments I wanted to quit, to walk away from it all knowing that perhaps some dreams and goals don’t really matter in the big scheme of things. There’s this search of a fulfilled life, living with your passion and does it matter in the end if we do any of this when we die and over time are forgotten.

Everything is always so twistable – no matter from what angle you look it will have a different perspective – how do you choose which one matters?

And let’s not forget that we often put in more work into our career or relationships and you have to wonder does it matter giving more of yourself to everything else or is time to take it all back and focus on ourselves?

Petra Monaco is a published author, coach, mom and breaks the status quo for fun. As a foster kid, she knows the challenges and excuses people make as she rewrote her own story and then worked her way through to become a Master's level therapist. However, after watching her son fight for his life due to a rare genetic disorder and three liver transplants, she now coaches creatives and multi-passionates to stop waiting for “one day” and the “perfect moments’. Petra helps you dive deeply into the heart of things in order to discover your next steps, inspires you to set up your own personal framework so you can break free from fear, doubt, and overwhelm so you can start creating the life you want now. Petra uses her personal story to inspire and motivate people into doing the work they need to do to create change because she believes that your excuses are just avoidance. You can have the cake and eat it too if you're willing to show up for it!
