Do you know the feeling of having a white canvas infront of you just waiting for you to draw on it? Well.. that was me! I faced a huge opportunity to start drawing, painting or scribbling whatever it was I wanted.
Who am I now? What makes me happy? What is important for me? What I want to do? What fulfills me?
I realised my thoughts and words were repetitive and I was stuck on the idea that “I don’t know, I don't know, I don't know“ I have never felt so stuck in my entire life.
The negative thoughts were not helping me. They were not allowing me to see anything, to dream, to believe in me.
So, here is where my new path and journey starts. On what I believed was just another day at the playground with my daughter, I met a mother with whom I bonded immediately. I asked her what she did for a living and she said “I am a life coach”, I was so surprised. People that know me well, know I strongly believe that life takes care of you if you allow it to and I knew then, that spontaneous conversation with that lovely mother was happening for a reason.
I remember speaking to my husband a year ago and telling him I wanted to study again and I had always liked the idea of becoming a therapist. My husband is very smart and the best advisor I could ask for. A year ago he said :”why don’t you look into coaching?”, at that time the idea did not seem or just my "I don't know" was so strong.
But here I was a year later, April 2020 out of business and with a huge opportunity in my hands and constant mental constraints. I was becoming my biggest obstacle to pursue anything.
This was when I decided to call the mother I met at the playground, who from that moment onwards became my life coach.
