Everything changes but who?
Take That comes to Milton Keynes and it takes me half an hour to get my morning coffee. My day has hit its first hitch. It’s gone pretty smoothly so far. Recharged the fitbit while I was getting ready to leave the house, remembered to put the bins out and have the first half of my walk done. 32 mins, 228 cals and 4010 steps according to my trusty fitbit.
So why am I writing…..many of the people I talk to about being a life coach seem to think that I’m some kind of expert. To some extent this may be true. I’m an expert in tools and techniques, in listening, encouraging and helping my clients work out what is right for them. I’m not an expert in getting it all right though. Here I want to share that with you as I go through my own change.
There’s so much talk about creating amazing lifestyles and reaching for the stars that it’s easy to forget that a large chunk of life isn’t ever going to be like that. It’s about routine, things not going to plan (having to queue for coffee) and putting the bins out.
It’s how we handle the routine and the boring, how we respond to hitches and bad news that makes the difference between whether or not we enjoy life and go on to make it fulfilling for us.
I’m going to share with you honestly how this life coach is handling her own life and the change that she wants to make happen. I know I’m not going to find it easy as I’m a fairly private person and it is not going to be easy to be honest about everything. All I can say is that I’ll give it my best and acknowledge that there will be some things that will be too private to share or that may involve the privacy of others. I need to be ok about that, I hope you are too.
I’m going to slot in some of the notes I’ve been making over the last couple of weeks as I’ve been pondering on the direction of my life and what I have, or haven’t, achieved so far. There’ll be lots of musing, it’s my personal opinion and I’ll quote and reference those I’ve learnt from where my perimenopausal brain allows.
So moving forward (and picking up on the Take That link)
Let’s see how well I get on with my change shall we?
