Is this YOU?
"I don’t want to see holiday pictures of people wondering when will this be me.
I don’t want to keep saying “yes, I’m ok” while I am not.
I don’t want other people to think that I am weak and that I can’t take care of my loved one.
I don’t want people to think I am selfish when I do self-care."
Then it’s time to start OWNING your well-being!
YOU DON’T DESERVE TO FEEL GUILTY WHEN YOU FINALLY TAKE SOME ME-TIME!
FEELING LIKE YOU ARE TRAPPED BY CAREGIVING HOLDS YOU BACK FROM A LIFE WHERE YOU WANT TO:
CAREGIVING IS HARD AND NOW WITH COVID-19 WE FEEL EXTRA PRESSURE TO MAKE SURE OUR LOVED ONES STAY WELL.
WE LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE IT SEEMS AS THOUGH IT’S DIFFICULT CARING FOR YOURSELF AND CARING FOR YOUR LOVED ONE.
YOU HAVE A JOB, YOU ARE THE DRIVER TO MEDICAL APPOINTMENTS, THE COOK, THE CLEANER, THE GROCERIES (WO)MAN, THE FEEDER, THE CAREGIVER AND ALL OF THIS KEEPS PRESSING AND MAKES YOU WANT TO HIDE IN THE CLOSET OR SIT DOWN AND CRY.
From my heart, I want you to feel and know this:
YOU CAN LEARN HOW TO LIVE A BALANCED LIFE WHILE TAKING CARE OF YOUR LOVED ONE….
YOU CAN LEARN HOW AND WHEN TO BREATHE SO YOU CAN STAY IN YOUR POWER AND HARMONY WHILE TAKING CARE OF YOUR LOVED ONE…

I HAVE THE STEPS TO SUPPORT YOU ON YOUR PATH
"I am an unexpected widow and single mama of two teenage girls. I run my house and a small business. I get the job done. But I don't always rest. I had not thought of myself as a caregiver before. Counselor. Yes. ATM, yes. Uber, yes. Fashion advice, chef and librarian, yes. But Meriam reminded me, in her gentle, kind ways that I too am a caregiver. And I needed to begin with taking better care of me. And that included down time. All tides rise when the mama rises. And so now, my girls witness a mama who honors and respects herself, her time, her energy and her passions. I have Meriam to thank for that. You simply must talk with her, because her spirit will lift yours. Also she is funny too. Lots of Love"
IS THIS FOR YOU?
CAREGIVERS who seek me are searching for NON-Medical advice. They are done with the unwanted feelings and just want a practical system to implement in their daily life. A system that reminds them of why, how and when to own their well-being so they have more harmony and balance in their lives.
There was a time when my husband was a diabetic/on dialysis/had a kidney/pancreas transplant. Not only that, he had many surgeries: groin rupture, several eye surgeries and ankle surgery. We lost count..
In November 2012 -1 day after my birthday- I was at the office when I received a call from my brother. He called me while having a stroke…
Taking care of my husband and my brother was a huge weight on my shoulders. I struggled with unwanted feelings. You guys know what I'm talking about right?
While taking care of my husband I burnt out. This happened because I didn’t take good care of myself.
I was searching for a practical and simple system that I could implement in my daily life to revitalize my own energy, be able to breathe, stop feeling guilty when I did self-care.
I couldn’t find it, so I decided to invest in myself and create it for myself.
I KNOW THAT THERE IS A WEALTH OF KNOWLEDGE OUT THERE. SOMETIMES IT CAN FEEL LIKE A JIGSAW PUZZLE -COMPLEX UNTIL IT IS COMPLETED. THAT IS WHY I WANTED TO MAKE IT SIMPLE.
Now I am a caregiver who stays in her POWER and in HARMONY while she does an Incredible Job. My husband, brother and I could and still benefit from this system.
I have been a caregiver for more than 20 years now and I'm the founder of the 6-week Live online program: Caregiver 2.0.
As a result of my coaching program, caregivers who spend their lifetimes helping their loved ones, learn in just 6 weeks how to prevent or overcome a burnout of taking care of other people.
They reduce stress, release the guilt and shame of sometimes one day to actually put themselves first, and they now implement a three-step strategy when the thought comes in their mind: Why me!
I'm looking for caregivers who:
a. take care of their loved ones
b. are done struggling
c. are ready to revitalize their own energy
d. are finally able to begin to prioritize them as number one first before they take care of anybody else
Taking care of themselves will extend their own quality of life so they can breathe better, live more and finally help others from a place of their overflow.
I’ve been able to share my story in many interviews. Please click to WATCH more interviews or LISTEN to the audio:
This is for YOU if you are a caregiver who:
1. Wants to reduce stress
2. Release the guilt when FINALLY prioritizing themselves
3. Wants a practical system to use when the thought comes in their mind: why me!

"When I met Meriam, I was very excited about the opportunity to work with her. Our paths crossed in a period of my life where I was very conscious of my physical appearance. I was used to hiding my insecurities underneath my bubbly and outgoing personality.I just finished a personal development training and she helped me to translate my newly learned skillset into a professional yet approachable appearance. I cherish the warm memories and still hear her advise playing in the back of my mind once in a while. Thank you Meriam, for showing me my hidden inner beauty!"
"Because of my lipedema I was very self-conscious about my body, especially about my legs. Wearing a dress has been out of the question since my teens. And that did have a negative effect on my self-esteem and the way I viewed myself. And then I met Meriam....The way she looks at life, the way she carries herself, how she dresses.... it was catchy. She is such a kind and loving person. She showed me that shifting my focus from my 'worst' to my best and most of all how she is able to make me see the best of me..... it made me feel confident, feminine! To be able to sparkle from the inside out.... she helped me make that possible again!"
MOST COURSES OF SELF-CARE MISS OUT THE CAREGIVER.

"I got to know you as a very sweet open minded woman with a great sense of humor. It was easy for me to contact you because you are very accessible, made me feel comfortable and always tried to get the best out of me. What I experienced as very pleasant is that you really thought along with me, showed genuine interest and took time to listen to me. And most important: you encouraged me to come out of my comfort zone.Meriam, thank you for who you are!"
"Meriam is a beautiful and confident businesswoman, though she is much more than that. After a conversation with her, that certainly came up. I noticed right away that she is a woman with a lot of life experience. And she knows how to inspire people. During our conversations she let me know that -if you really want it- anything is possible. She taught me to think big and go for it. Our conversations gave me confidence and a boost to get through. Thank you for your time and advice."
