About Me:
My Journey to Self-Discovery Through the Enneagram

It All Started With the "C" Word

Hello There!

I'm so glad you're here. My name is Myrna Scales

I'm a proud USAF pilot wife, a mom to two incredible boys, a certified Enneagram coach, and a blogger. 

I'm an Enneagram type 9 wing 1, and I love ALL things cozy. For my "me time," you can find me at a bookstore, with a cup of coffee and a good book. 

I share a little bit of my story below! Keep reading to see why I LOVE the Enneagram and became an Enneagram coach to help others. 


The "C" Word

In August 2018, we found out our youngest son had Wilms Tumor (a childhood kidney cancer). 

That diagnosis changed my life.

One Tough Year

Our youngest son would undergo major abdominal surgery to remove the tumor and his left kidney. He would then receive 7 rounds of radiation and 7 months of chemotherapy. 

It was the longest and hardest year of my life.

"Why my son? Why my family?"

I was so angry and sad, but I couldn't express my emotions. I would use passive aggression to get some of that anger out but it never helped me feel better. I started to wonder why it was so hard for me to express my feelings and why I never stood up for myself. I knew I used to be confident when I was a child, but something changed in me as I grew up. 

One Day on Instagram

I found a post about the Enneagram...

One day, I was scrolling through Instagram and found a post about the Enneagram. I never heard of it before, but I loved taking personality quizzes. So, I took this one.


When I got my result and started reading through it, I started to cry. All the things I couldn't say about how I felt were in the results. 

I was a type 9 peacemaker. I was scared of confrontation. I was a people pleaser because I wanted to keep the peace. I had a hard time expressing anger.


EVERY. SINGLE. THING. Was on point, and I couldn't believe it. 

I've been hooked ever since!


My youngest son is now 5 years old and cancer-free!

"I am beyond grateful to be able to spend every day with my family."

This journey has positively changed my perspective. All the things that used to matter don't anymore. I want to spend my time with the people who mean the most to me because you don't know what tomorrow will bring. 

My newfound 

Learning about myself through the Enneagram has been life-changing. I am more confident, express my emotions, and pursue my dreams without fear of confrontation. 

I even shared my thoughts with the world by speaking at TEDx Vail. 


Enneagram Coaching

I became a certified Enneagram coach because I know how much the Enneagram has helped me understand myself and others. I want to help moms going through the hard times in life. You can still be confident and happy even when life is tough. 

Happy Mom = Happy Family

At 9 wing 1, I specialize in helping moms discover their true selves through the power of the Enneagram. I am eager to help moms understand themselves and tap into who God made them to be, not who we believe we need to be for other people.


Through my life coaching services, I provide the tools, insights, and guidance to help you reach your personal and professional goals.
