Becky Litwicki is 29 but will be 30 on January 9th! She is excited about her 30s now that she has gotten to know herself better in her late 20s. She says, “The next decade should be fun!” She lives in a small suburb of Chicago. Becky was born in Janesville, WI and moved to where she is now after attending college at Northern Illinois University. This is her story.
I am finishing up a Hatha Yoga certification so I am teaching yoga more and more. I am also a Desire Map facilitator. And, I’m helping my husband build his internet marketing business.
Right now I’m focused on creating a deeply fulfilling life. I find authenticity is one of the most motivating things to me right now, so I’m dedicated to tuning into what that means for me and if it is inspiring to others, then that’s icing on the cake.
I believe it’s our responsibility to take care of ourselves and create a life that fulfills and inspires us. Tuning into how you want to feel (which is what The Desire Map helps with) is incredibly important so you can structure your life around what’s most important to you. For me, yoga has become an incredible way to move, care for my body, mind, and soul, meet friends, and so much more. I think everyone needs to find their thing/s that keep them inspired, healthy, and at their best.
My determination and ability to follow through on creating a life I love instead of just letting life happen to me.
In 2012, when I began working for a holistic chiropractor, I learned the incredible benefits of eating a whole food diet loaded with plants and feel-good nutrients. After I swapped out processed foods with whole foods and added in a lot of veggies and healthy fats, my anxiety has decreased significantly. Since this has such a big impact on my life, I wrote and self-published a book called Eating Whole For The Health Of It to share what I had learned.

What is one attribute you got from your Mom? How has it been a benefit to your life?
My mom is super supportive. This has empowered me to make some big choices and has helped me get through some challenging things like high school and college basketball, relationship challenges, difficult jobs, and so much more. She’s also really creative which I appreciate because she has shown me time and time again how awesome creative expression can be. Because of this, I feel like I’m less intimidated by the idea of being creative with my life.
What is one attribute you got from your Dad? How has it been a benefit to your life?
My dad works is butt off and from a young age he helped me realize if there’s something I want, working hard is one of the best ways to make sure it happens. He is also super supportive and shows a lot of interest in all of the new things I take on. Having so much stability and support from my parents has definitely empowered me and given me a strong foundation to work from.

Yes, in fact, I plan to put much more intention into being environmentally friendly in 2017. I haven’t decided exactly what that will look like yet, but I know there is way too much waste leaving our house of 2 and figure there has to be a way to cut back. I’ll be doing more research for this soon.
