Today I woke with this thought: If I am not creating then I am not living.
How very profound!
Lots of little ones. (at Molenerf de Ster Utrecht)
So yeah I signed up for a coaching program. It’s ter-ri-fic!! Everything about it I love and it’s here, in my backyard. AND taught in English. WOW! Also it’s an international program. Even better!
My only issue: finding the moola to pay for it. Yeah. I’m hoping to find a way before I have to cancel. I’m putting it out there in a big bad way. Universe need your help now. Pretty please.
Let me back up and give a little backstory. I’ve been looking into this for some time now. In December I signed up for a podcast over the subject of being a coach. After listening to several different kinds of coaches, I decided this was definitely the way. Though, I had had my share of kismet events beforehand. This just solidify this wish. I met a coach here, American, doing the same work. We had a call together as me the coachee and her as the coach. The whole time I had chills because I knew then I really wanted to do it. Then life got a bit in the way… Remodeling the house in order to sell. Then selling the house and buying one (soon moving in!). Also myriad of other developments within the family. I had to take time away from it because my priorities had to be on family.
Back in April I had a “come to Jesus” discussion with my husband. He is always supportive but I was laying it out for myself out loud to him (a sort of commitment clause). ”I need to move on this or I will perish.” Always a flare for the dramatic. But it is time to create a fulfilling well rounded life here instead of just getting by. This includes a bit more independence for myself which means creating a salary and being a stay-at-home Mom. Yes, I want it all and why not! The way to do it? Entrepreneurship. No other way will do. But I always knew over the years I’ve been here that any business I would build would have to make a difference for me and those I work with, create flexibility, allow for me to work from home, and the product must be service-oriented, not a physical product. I just know that wasn’t for me. I feel some momentum. I can visualize my business cards, my home office, and my website. Need a good name (help NBNB). But mostly I can see my clients. All coming for different reasons but seeking my coaching and assistance and actually getting the results they need. I can see this more because I took on a free client. Sure, she’s a friend but she is actually seeing results. This furthered my confidence to continue on. I’m so excited to push forward on this dream! The more I think about it the more it fits me perfectly. Here’s hoping my “ship comes in”. ;)
I had an idea like this a few years back but it would have been more like the movie “Traveling Jeans” concept. I like this a bit better. Sad though about the one message from one reader. :\ I’m going to check it out bookcrossing.com
Someone left us a present! A traveling copy of Freaky Friday (RIP, Mary Rodgers) with a very intriguing Post-it note on the cover, and a code written on the side:
Bookcrossing.com is a site that connects people through books — you catch a book, read it, release it again, and log it on the site with your comments. Entering the code on our copy of Freaky Friday revealed a poignant message from user ResQgeek: “Registered in memory of my daughter, who was tragically killed on 30 August 2010.”
We’re sorry for your loss — and we’ll pass the book on!
Bought a new Yoga mat! Why did it take so long?
Happy International Giraff day! Who knew? (at Binder Park Zoo | Battle Creek, Michigan)
Happy Father’s day! (at Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes National Park)
First cheeseburger from the grill!
Sometimes it’s fun not to see where you’re going!
I decided that I really want to be a coach. That is, a life coach to be specific. I have been working up to this for a long long while. I can’t even begin to say where it started. Anyway, I have a client that I’m working with and getting a sense of things. It feels really natural. Well that’s what’s going on here.
