Distracted by my thoughts (and the phone) and definitely feeling the stress, I walked by a family that was also enjoying their morning walk. The woman is pushing a stroller, kid seems to be sleeping; the man has the dog on a leash. Did not think much of it, we see this all the time.
This morning, as I was cleaning the coffee grinder, my husband walked into the space and said: "I want someone that believes in me the way you believe in coffee." We both laughed.
If you stop searching for the answers outside yourself and start listening to your intuition by being really still and quiet, you will know what to do next. Always. You already know.
Contrary to popular belief, 2020 has been one of my best years yet.
My purpose is to inspire others to become the best version of themselves by being the best version of myself every day; showing up to work, and to life, fully and authentically. But what does that mean or, even better, how do you do that?
NO is a powerful word. It’s scary to say no. it’s terrifying to think about the consequences and impact of our NOs. However, until we are able to say NO to what does not serve us, we cannot say YES to the best version of ourselves, in any and all aspects of our lives: relationships, lifestyle, health, fitness, finances, business, career, leadership, self.
As I think about where I am right now and I take a moment to reflect on my journey, the following questions are coming up for me.
Almost eight months in and I'm still very much excited to log into work every day while also working on (and funding) my dream. I get to support individuals to become the best version of themselves both at my current job, as well as working with individual clients. To do this, I have managed to structure a schedule that works for me, so I can integrate the different parts of my life while protecting my boundaries, my energy and my financial stability... and I am so happy to be able to help others do the same.
Coaching is not therapy. It is not mentoring. It is not consulting. It is not the coach giving "advice" to the client. It is not the coach being an expert in an industry or area and offering that expertise to the client. It is not the coach determining the client’s direction and choices for them. It is not a hierarchical relationship.
Every single person has the ability to create a life that is meaningful and fulfilling to them because all human beings are creative, resourceful and whole.
