We, Anika Gray and Adrian Hill, created A Life So Full after we both went through our own periods of “stuckness” and made it out on the other side to tell the tale. Through our own, very different processes, we both became passionate about sharing our stories and helping others. Below you’ll find a little more info about each of us. If you’re serious about changing your life and want to start right away, you can reach out here. And thanks for visiting A Life So Full. We’re glad you’re here! :)
Hi! I’m excited your here. And it’s pretty cool that you want to know more about Adrian and I. So thanks for reading. While I grew up in a small farm town and will always have some country roots, I’m a big city girl at heart. I’ve lived in Los Angeles for almost seven years now and when I arrived in 2012, the plan was to get my Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology and become a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I thought I was set. In my last year though, I auditioned and became a member of a performance and recording choir and almost immediately started working for television, on albums, and performances for major artists. Getting paid to sing? It was like a dream come true! And I felt strongly that I needed to pursue singing professionally instead of getting my MFT license. So I went for it. And while I had plenty of success and amazing experiences, the entertainment industry is not all glamorous.
After two years of being a full time professional vocalist, I found myself unhappy and ultimately feeling like nothing I had accomplished was enough. Even more so, I had no idea how to move forward. So I took a break - from singing, from Los Angeles, from my beautiful apartment, from my entire reality as I knew it. I moved back to my tiny hometown - and in with my parents. Yikes. But during those few months, I spent time with my family and actually, I slept a lot. I thought I was moving back to give myself time to work on a new business, but ultimately I was reacquainting myself with myself. I also happened to meet Adrian during that time. :) At first, leaving LA felt like defeat. It felt hopeless, like I would never get out of that space or make anything of myself, but in hindsight, the Universe really had my back. I had no idea that in just 6 months time, I would be living happily with my partner and starting my dream business. Now, I am ecstatic to share with others all the incredible tools that both my education and my experience have lent me in creating this life that I love. Because honestly, it’s about damn time we all got unstuck and started living our fullest lives. So if you want to know more or have any questions, don’t be a stranger! Please reach out here. I look forward to meeting everyone that is creating their version of a life so full!
I’ve never been the person who knew exactly what they wanted to do with their life. For me, it’s been a winding journey. As a kid I was fascinated with the idea of being an entrepreneur. I was always coming up with a new business idea. Gradually, over the years I became convinced that I had to get a “real job” to survive and be happy. So, I did just that. I went to college, landed a job, and moved up to a big position with the company I was working for. I was making good money, owned a house, was in a long-term relationship. I had checked off all the boxes for “success.” The only problem was - I wasn’t happy.
I felt totally stuck. I came to the realization that I had been living a life other people wanted for me and not the life I wanted for myself. I decided to make some drastic changes. I started taking acting classes (a big step for an introvert), ended my relationship, planned to move to Thailand, landed the lead role in a short film, sold the house, sold all my things, and left my company. All of this happened in the span of about six months.
During this time, I decided I was going to live the life I truly desired. I wanted to get to know myself more intimately, develop better relationships, and spend more time doing the things I loved and cared about. I wanted to build a business I could work on from anywhere in the world, something that would give me freedom to travel and make my own schedule. It was in this limbo period before moving to Thailand that I met Anika, and our desires for life totally clicked. We realized we needed to give it a shot together, and I changed my moving plans from Thailand to Los Angeles. Today, I’m actually living out the life I desire. Through this transformational period of my life, I learned some invaluable lessons and tools that helped me get “unstuck” and move into the life I was meant to live. We know there are tons of other people like us out there - people who want to get unstuck and make the most out of our time on this earth. That’s why we started A Life So Full. If you’re reading this now, I believe you are truly meant to do something great with your life. I can’t wait to get to know your story and work with you on making your dreams a reality.
