Quiet Heart and Home: Creating Harmony in Your Heart, Home, and Life
Where I've been: I reached a point in my life where I felt discontent, "out of sorts," and exhausted. I had always been a highly driven, perfection-seeking, over-achieving workaholic. I had a never-ending to-do list and was always running around trying to do too much in too little time. I didn't know what self-care was and I didn't allow time for rest, relaxation, or play. I had lost all passion for the things that had at one time brought me joy. I had no hobbies, my work was no longer fulfilling, and pretty much all of my relationships were strained.
I knew that I was on the wrong path and something needed to change, but I wasn't sure what I wanted or where to start. I had been so busy trying to please others and meet other people's needs and expectations, that I had lost touch with my own needs and what **I** really wanted.
Using the practice of journal writing for deep self-inquiry and self-examination, I started to get clear on what wasn't working and exploring what I wanted to create in my life. I initiated a series of endings and new beginnings in all areas of my life, including leaving my long-time job to start my own business, moving to a new home state, and ending my marriage.
When we're feeling discontent in our life, we don't always know the cause right away. Sometimes it's easier to keep doing what we're doing, even if it's no longer working for us, because we don't know how to change it.
Even if we are lucky enough to know what we do want, and maybe even know what it will take to make the change, we can still get stuck because we have to grapple with our own fears, deeply ingrained self-beliefs, and other forms of internal resistance. The reality is: even if we desire change, change is still hard! Sometimes we need a boost to get started and/or support to maintain action toward what we want. And that's where coaching comes in.
I know it can be overwhelming to take the first step and reach out to a coach (I've been there!). I promise - I will be open and welcoming right from the start. I'll do everything I can to make it a safe environment so you feel comfortable sharing openly about your challenges. I'm very proud to say that this is one piece of feedback I've received consistently since I started coaching: that I create a warm and welcoming environment that creates comfort and safety and allows my clients to share freely.
I coach because I know:
I coach because I've experienced all of these (and more!). I've experienced the benefits of being coached and know how valuable it is in addressing these types of challenges. I coach because I believe that we all deserve an abundance of joy and love in our life. We deserve to feel happy. We deserve to follow our heart and create the life we want to live.
If this is resonating with you, let's schedule a short chat to see if coaching may be a helpful tool for you and to determine if we would be a good fit!
