Hello gorgeous humans!
I am Alyssa, welcome to the blog! I am an entrepreneur + speaker from Los Angeles and am so excited to have you here.
Throughout my entrepreneurial endeavors, I have been incredibly lucky to travel around the globe & connect with hundreds of remarkable people. Looking back, it would’ve been so amazing to document every journey to share with the world. Whether that be to help, inspire, or motivate someone, I am a firm believer that we are all here for a bigger purpose. I live every single day to grow into the best version of myself that I can possibly be and along the way if I can inspire others to do the same, I know I am on the right path.
I’ve lead a very interesting last few years of my life which have completely changed my view and outlook of living on purpose, with purpose and having a strong vision and mission to add value to others.
In 2014, I was involved in a very serious car accident. I was in the hospital for three months, had to relearn to walk, lost vision in my left eye and have had 12 surgeries since. I realized right then and there that if I wanted to get through the trials and tribulations that lie ahead, mindset was going to be everything.
The moment I made the decision to fight and not fall, I put everything I had into keeping a positive mind and a brave heart. Every morning was filled with affirmations + goals with my nurse, positive music & podcasts after my first round of rehabilitation and endless blog articles on everyday things that put a smile on my face at night.
Doctors said I wouldn’t walk for eight months. Determined, I made that happen in three. On Christmas Eve of 2014, I was told my left eye muscle was dead & I wouldn’t be able to move my eye again. Two surgeries and about a million eye muscle exercises later, I regained 85% single vision and 95% movement. Physical therapists thought I may never be able to run long distances again, 18 months later I was running and today I am in talks of training for my first half-marathon.
After discovering the power of mindset, I decided to start sharing positive things on social media that brought joy to my life to hopefully in return bring joy to others. After seeing what other creators in the world had done for me, I knew it was my mission to bring the same light to the world.
With that, alyssatabit.com was born! I want this to be a happy & safe space for my readers to laugh, escape, inspire, cultivate and create. A place to visit when needing (as my friends like to call it) their daily dose of Vitamin A!
