Well I did it, I jumped and so far this free fall feels pretty exhilarating. Let me explain.
At the start of 2019 I decided that I needed a change. Like most people with the start of a new year the idea of change is appealing. For me I wanted more out of my career, I wanted to have meaningful impact in the world that made me feel alive.
You see all throughout 2018 I was introduced and trained in the teachings for coaching through the wonderful co-active program through CTI(Coaching Training Institute). And let me tell you it woke me up! Not only did it show me the positive impact that coaching can have on individuals one on one, but learning how to coach brought a whole new self awareness. It made me look at myself and ask, what narrative do I have playing in my head holding me back. What are the emotions that I'm not facing. And overall what life did I want to be living. Those aren't easy questions and they can take time to explore, which I ended up doing throughout most of 2018. So when 2018 was coming to a close I decided to focus on what feelings or themes did I want to go after in the new year, and I settled of a few. Two of them being aliveness and impact.
So with aliveness and impact as my themes I took a big leap off the cliff, I quit my job of 8 years, registered my own business, and started dreaming of all the possibilities to create impact and aliveness in others all in the pursuit of something greater. I started a coaching and consulting practice!
Even though I don't know how to get to the finish line - I'm just going to start running. And I'll be honest I don't even know what the finish line looks like. All I'm doing now is moving forward believing in myself and my talent an passion and that the world needs more aliveness and people to have positive impact. That's it.
I wanted to write about this as my first blog to capture what's in my head and heart at this moment. In case it all goes sideways! Wow I hope not, but just incase I want to bottle this. I'm officially two weeks into my own coaching and consulting practice and it has been amazing. I wake up excited about what each day is going to bring, I'm living in the world of possibilities, ideas and opportunities. I'm meeting new people, trying new things and seeing what is out there. I'm also feeling incredibly grateful for all the support and encouragement that I've been receiving, I think people love watching others go for it, and I've been receiving all of their positivity and its been amazing! I feel alive in this free fall and I have faith that my wings will show up!
