I’m not quite 50 yet but it feels like my life is starting anew.
Finally, I am packed with self-confidence and courage to launch my new life career.
For a time now I’ve been quietly studying, counseling, coaching and volunteering.
I was uncertain about putting the “new me” out there for fear of judgment and criticism.
I had to tie a few loose ends, snipping off that cord that still latched on to the “old me” and then find forgiveness and strength to move forward.
Little by little I started to give in, I could feel myself softening up and finally I decided that it’s now or never.
So in comes the New Year and just like spring-cleaning, out with the old and in with the new!
Re-introducing myself with a new title to my profession scared me but no way was I turning back or staying stuck.
Last Saturday, I attended a class reunion and handed out little bookmarks to introduce the “new me”.
What a pleasant surprise! It was received quite positively! It felt good inside. I couldn’t help but smile.
I thought to myself, “what was I afraid of all this time?” I have nothing to be ashamed about. I’ve earned the recognition.
Yes! I am a Life Coach. I am coaching right now at a private college and I am proud to say that the experience is beyond rewarding!
I coach young adults and faculty and today I am off to give an introductory coaching talk to yet another group of young scholars.
I am nervous but ready to take it all in.
Bless my new path, my journey to ultimate freedom!
