At work, I am more productive and more focused. I can get more done in a shorter time. My days are controlled by me not by others. I don’t spend everyday overthinking and second guessing. I have more time to spend developing relationships. My energy is put into that and not into living out what if scenarios in my head.
The biggest change, however, is an internal one. I have found purpose in my life. I realise I am more than just a mother or just a teacher. My happiness comes from myself. I have strategies in my life for when things are tougher. I have rediscovered my identity which I realise I had lost. My purpose came from the roles I had. Now, I am living my life on my terms. I am setting goals and working to achieve them. According to Positive Psychology true happiness comes from positive emotions, engagement, relationships, meaning and achievement. I have found all these things in my life. I was waking in the morning hoping the day would be good, hoping nothing bad would happen. Now when I wake I know exactly what my day will be like because I am in charge.
I decided to find a way to share what helped me so much. I became a certified Mindfulness and Meditation teacher, a life balancing life coach, an EFT master practitioner, a breathwork coach and a Positive Psychology practitioner. I can look at the future and see my children spreading their wings and living their own lives. I can see, a little beyond that, my retirement and, although these things still scare me, I know I have many things to look forward to, lots of plans and goals to achieve. My purpose now includes helping people experience the transformation I have experienced. I am as excited about the future now as I was when I finished my education degree at 21.
If my before sounds like some or all of your day, reach out to me. I can help you, I did it myself and the skills I have learned are what I use to help all my clients.
