For years and years I tried programs, classes, jobs, projects, graduate school etc . . . and always ended up feeling like something was missing.
I also often quit things which made my confidence plummet every time.
At one point I decided that being a massage therapist was a good idea.
I enrolled for a year long program determined to make it work. Quickly, I once again found myself disconnected, overwhelmed and uninspired.
One day I was on my way to class, late again, and suddenly felt paralyzed to enter the building.
I called my Mother in tears and admitted once again I felt like quitting.
This time my Mom did not encourage me to soldier on and finish
what I started.
Instead, she allowed me the space to consider quitting
I did quit the program and began a new journey with new explorations.
I accepted myself in the decision, feeling grateful I did not put more energy into something which did not feel right.
At that point in my life I could have NEVER fathomed the idea that 10 years later I would have a thriving business as a Life and Career Coach and be fulfilled professionally.
I didn't even know Life Coaching existed!
I had to accept myself for where I was and what I was capable of at the time to allow for other doors to open.
