About Linda

Welcome to Mission Gorgeous!! Congratulations on investing in YOU. We are so excited to have you join us.  My name is Linda Evenden, I’m a wife, mama, speaker, empowerment coach and it’s my passion helping women remember their greatness. 

Mission Gorgeous is about tapping into your inner radiance, owning who you are, freeing your mind, nourishing your body, igniting your heart and claiming your power to live the life you want.   My heart’s wish is together we can create a community where body love, acceptance, self care and ‘me first’ are embraced. The mantra for Mission Gorgeous is – Every Body deserves to be loved!

I know for many this may sound daunting, maybe not even possible, but I promise you it is… I know this for fact because I’ve ‘been there’ too.  

For a long time I was busy being busy, working long hours, and putting everyone else first.  I took my body and health for granted, until one day it all came crashing down and I went through a physical and mental break down.  I ended up on anti depressants, tapped out of my corporate career… I was barely able to leave the house.  

During this time I realized I had many layers of healing to do not just physically but also emotionally & spiritually.   As a teenager, I’d had a severe curvature of the spine called scoliosis, I’d had many surgeries and created a belief that I was ‘deformed’. I’d been rejecting my body on many levels, underneath all this was a deep sadness and a belief I wasn’t lovable.  I knew I had to meet with that sadness and shed love and light and ultimately truth on it.

That was a pivotal moment.  I knew to get through this I had to give myself all the love, care and priority I deserved. I had to deal with the old beliefs and stories and create new empowering ones - I began my journey into self development. I went to a retreat that focused on ‘detoxing’ my system - I learned what we eat effects how we feel and many health principles that changed my whole life. It helped me hit the reset button and I bounced back fast with new energy, clarity and purpose. In just 10 days I had reclaimed the ‘jump out of bed’ young girl I’d been.  The fun girl, the adventurer, the free spirit and welcome her back into the driver’s seat.  I changed my relationship with my body and began loving her instead of being disappointed and rejecting her.  I began eating for vibrancy, doing exercise, yoga, meditation, journaling, juicing, investing in natural healing therapies and built a stronger mindset. Most powerfully I gave myself the gift of real nutrition. 

This is the true heart of what Mission Gorgeous is…  a mission to truth, to improve your confidence, beliefs and relationship with food, self love, and your body.  Re-claiming your worth. To LOVE and ‘be in’ the beautiful body you are in right now with wholehearted acceptance, ownership, gratitude and reverence. 

My journey is captured so well in this quote ““Diseases can be our spiritual flat tires - disruptions in our lives that seem to be disasters at the time but end by redirecting our lives in a meaningful way” Bernie Siegel. M.D.
