What If What You Want Is Not What You Need?

What if what thought you wanted was not actually what you needed? I thought I wanted six new coaching clients to start with me at once. I thought I wanted all my coaching clients to start at the same time, from now on. I thought I wanted more structure, more framing, in order to give… Continue reading What If What You Want Is Not What You Need?

Accepting Defeat (In Order To Win)

We can have this image in our heads – a clear plan for how things should be. But that doesn’t mean they will work out that way. It doesn’t matter how much effort you put into it.

It’s Never Too Late (To Start All Over Again)

I’m Figuring It All Out As I Go Along

Confession time. In case it wasn’t already painfully obvious: I don’t have all the answers. I don’t know what I’m doing. I’m figuring it all out as I go along. This is why you see me tweak things. This is why I’m always testing things. This is why you see me change directions. I wish… Continue reading I’m Figuring It All Out As I Go Along

Whose Voice Is That?

That nasty voice – that mean voice – the one that tells you you’re not good enough. The one that says you don’t deserve to be happy or to have all the things you say you want. Whose voice is that? I so want it to be someone else’s. Then I would just need to… Continue reading Whose Voice Is That?
