This is traditionally where a bio is written, to paint a picture of professional experiences: job titles, places worked and accomplishments. I choose not to go down that path. What I have decided to do is paint a picture of how I arrived at this place as a Certified Coach.
I am writing my bio from a place of fulfilling my life’s purpose. I begin my working career at 10 years old in my mothers’ business. Moving to the corporate world, to government, to non-profit origination’s, to becoming an entrepreneur, owning my own business – totaling over 35 years; In addition, my personal life as a mother and wife. This journey has supported my psychological growth, stamina, and resiliency and has helped me to discover the threads of my soul’s purpose. I am grateful for all the opportunities and lessons learned in my personal life and professional life.
Overall, I see my life’s incarnations; personally and work continually calling me to mature; and to grow up and to align myself with the spirit behind my life’s work. I can articulate these realizations more readily now that the original angst of sorting and facing has diminished. It is a consistent invitation to look squarely at the obstacles within me that prevent me from full expression of my most inner strengths. I have been summoned to open up to qualities such as curiosity, stamina, patience, endurance, reflection, wisdom, courage, honesty, integrity, trustworthy and tenacity. Thus, deepen my faith in myself by examining and trusting in the truth of my own experience, rather than someone else version of my experience.
We all need to develop the habit of sorting and facing so we don’t waste vast amounts of energy ignoring and blaming. Lessons, faced and met and integrated by us will endure and strengthen over time. Even though we experience different types of glitches along our path, they are there to help us achieve our life purpose and self-awareness.
We see, we face, we sort, we act, we integrate, we move on. It’s easy to say but it is so worth the effort of learning this rhythm and attitude. I can say personally, I am so grateful for my life lessons on balance.
There is more space, more faith and more freedom, less attachment, more joy, less judgment.
So it is in this spirit of reflecting on this journey that I share a few guidelines and habits. I have learned and am continuing to learn about the notion of balance and its relationship to the work and life we choose. This brings me to why at this time in my journey; I choose to help others to reach a life of balance through coaching.
