I had a recent conversation and this question popped into my head. What is it that I want? WOW. Just my initial reaction to this question is powerful. But also unknown. Hence, I’m asking myself to reflect deeper to perhaps come to an answer.
At various stages of my life, I have attempted to ask myself this question. Others have asked me to. And each time, I didn’t have an answer. Now on the surface, this is a loaded question. What do I want? Well what do you mean? Insert any variable, but in this particular instance, the question is speaking to what is it I want with my life? Another loaded question I know 🙂
Over the past year, I have done a lot of soul searching and introspection. When I first started, I was just trying to pick myself up to even scratch the surface of the water. At that time, I was feeling miles below the surface…. at the bottom of the iceberg. And it took about 6 months for me to reach the surface. Over the next 6 months, with continued mindfulness practice, I have begun to reach levels high above the water, and I know my journey won’t stop there. I still have miles and miles to go 🙂
Along this journey, I have noticed my headspace has been evolving. Like many of us, I am always searching for self-improvement ideas. And over the past year, especially these last 6 months, I have been having thoughts of exploring the coaching world. Through my own mindfulness journey and by helping myself, I have been thinking about how I could help others do the same. I’ve thought to myself… Hey, I really enjoy sharing my story, and some of you have enjoyed reading, maybe I could actually make this a working reality. Now this is about the time where my head gets a bit jumbled in my many thoughts.
Ok, so you want to go into coaching? Well, what kind of coaching? How will you make this happen? Who will you coach? What will you offer them? Like an onion, I’m beginning to peel back the many layers to this question. I am still searching for the answers to these questions, and that’s okay. But I’m starting to discover some clues to the answers.
While I don’t have all the answers, and really who of us does… I know I will spend the next few months exploring this avenue more. I plan to dedicate a good chunk of my time to continuing to deliver quality content around anything and everything mindfulness. Content creation is a passion of mine. And while it doesn’t bring home the big bucks, or any bucks for that matter, it brings me joy. It fills my cup back up. And that’s really what it’s all bout. Sharing my personal thoughts and feelings and giving you an insight into my life’s happenings is also part of my therapy. And I will never give that up.
None of us know how our stories will end, but each of us has the opportunity to help steer the narrative. And my narrative, ever evolving, is beginning to shift towards the coaching realm. At the moment, I don’t know what this will look like. But I am excited to continuing growing, learning, and exploring. And I am excited to bring each of you the stories along the way.
