I know what it’s like to build up a career and business based on something you love, and for that passion to slowly disappear, replaced by apathy and resentment.
You feel stuck between the imagined life you desire and the one you’ve created.
Each morning, you get up and go through the motions.
That enthusiasm you once had has made way for weariness and worries. What else could you do? You have responsibilities and you’re just so busy, where would you find the time? Besides, you’re so tired, you couldn’t find the energy to find a new career if you tried.
I recognise those feelings. Those times when your soul is calling you to wake up to your true desires and purpose, but you’ve lost your identity somewhere along this journey called life. You’ve been too busy running around, “doing” life, avoiding painful experiences and emotions that threaten to derail you, because you haven’t got time for that. So you keep going. Pushing through. And then your health starts to change.
At some point, you’ll be forced to address that discomfort you’ve been feeling, yet ignoring.
Life will only allow you to hit the snooze button on the alarm clock so many times. It’s like a choice you give to a child – you can come willingly, or kicking and screaming; either way, it’s going to happen.
After being pushed, instead of surrendering, I discovered the road to wellbeing and happiness is easier travelled when you cease resisting change and embrace life.
I now help empower people to explore their life choices, improve wellbeing and intentionally create the life they wish to live through coaching, writing and talks.
