I think anyone who knows me, knows that I love bettering myself. Anyone who truly knows me, realizes that I am not perfect and that I have a huge heart. I love taking care of my family, being able to stay home with my children, run a beautiful home with two crazy dogs and cook meals all day long. But at the end of every day, I still want to take care of ME. Being a momma, running a real estate business and a wife to an extremely hard working man is a lot! I do a lot of it by myself, with the help of sitters and the occasional family member here or there. While I have an abundant life and so many blessings, I don’t want “die with the music still inside of me.” That was a Wayne Dyer quote I heard many years ago.
I have big hopes, goals and dreams and Joe and I often joke we wonder if any of “it” will be enough. We are never bored, we don’t watch TV, and we have this burning desire to seek so much more out of life. What other businesses should we create? How many more people can we help? Where else can we travel to and experience new cultures? We want to expose our children to so many beautiful opportunities.
My head spins and I have ALL OF THE THINGS I want to do before I die and where the heck do I even start?!
My mind starts going and I get started on some new adventure, and then I eventually shut down and back off. Any time I start something just for me, I tend to implode. There wasn’t enough time, or the baby needed that, or our business this…
Enter in, Life Coaching. Yup. I am smack dab in the middle of week one and HOLY SMOKES have my eyes been opened up real wide. So many things friends, so many things to tell you! I’ve taken a few assessments and honestly have spent a lot of time with just myself. (It’s weird and beautiful!) Some things I was well aware of (I’m an empathetic person) and other things I’ve begun to see like that I tend to self-sabotage, as I mentioned above. I am starting with Lindsay’s 21 day course titled, Life Luvers.
I’ll be honest, there have been a few uncomfortable moments. There have already been a few times where a thought slips through my mind and I hear “Maybe you can’t do it. Who do you think you are? What makes you special?” And then I breathe in really deep, shove those negative comments aside and keep pushing. And digging. And thinking. And realizing: I can.
One of the road blocks I know I have is time, so I will be very aware of my social media usage, my ‘down time’ and I’ve already begun using timers. I will use that pretty planner above and really hone in on when I can work on ME. Another area I want to work on is being okay with not being liked by others. My mood ebbs and flows on this one. Sometimes I don’t care and I say, do, and post what I want when I want. Other times? I worry, I think too much, I over analyze and become frozen. I go radio silent and into a weird space. I don’t want that to happen any more.
I know it’s only the beginning of my little journey here but I am already seeing big strides. I want to share as much as I can, as this blog has always been a wonderful outlet for me. I will share on my Instagram stories more as we continue going further into coaching. I am in this for the long haul! I am putting it out here into the universe and holding myself accountable.
Yes, I am a wifey, a mama and a real estate investor, a reader, a writer, a life long learner…but mostly? I am a woman who, when on her deathbed, will look back and say, I did not die with my music still inside of me. I lived my life to its fullest and truly followed my passions, lived calmly and peacefully, and with zero regrets.
If you’re wondering if coaching is for you, Lindsay has a free assessment you can take here! I will be sharing weekly my progress here on the blog. I figured “Wellness Wednesday” will be a good fit and I’ll go into details about my wins, ‘a-ha’ moments and some struggles as much as I can. I believe in being an open book, but I also know that sometimes I need to work through things by myself.
Have you done any life coaching?
