This weekend I received a pretty box in the mail. I knew this box was coming but had no idea when it would come or that when it came it would be wrapped with a bow.
After much ado and a whole lot of fanfare I opened the box. The fact that the box came with a large red bow was not lost on me. I know that the journey I am about to embark on, is a lot like the present, I received. It is beautiful and exciting but I know that the single act of untying the bow will change my life in ways I have yet to imagine.
Are you wondering what is so amazing about this delivery?
What new thing am I trying?
What new adventure have I started?
Yes, I have taken the huge leap and decided to follow the call of my soul and become a Life Coach. I would say this has been in the works for the last few months but truthfully I have been preparing for this day my whole life. Over the last few years my soul’s path has started to reveal itself. Slowly at first with glimpses here and there and a few paths I wasn’t ready to tread.
I am ready now and have spent the last 6 months actively working towards this point. I have researched many different schools, talked to life coaches that I respect and have finally picked my school. In fact, I thought that this final step was financially impossible but one of the things I have learned over the last few years is that if something is meant to be things will come together. I wrote a letter the universe asking for the exact amount of money I needed to attend the training and that I needed that money within two weeks! Four, okay that deserves caps, FOUR days all of the money had shown up, in ways I didn’t expect.
I will leave on June 4th for an intensive 8 day course where I will immerse myself in training and learn the how of coaching and then return home for more training via internet classes and Skype sessions. Life coaching is a perfect extension of everything I have spent the last 6 months building. I have so many dreams, that I am growing within my soul right now. I can’t wait to see what the next few years hold.
My heart if so full of love for everyone who has made this moment possible, without you none of this would be possible.
Eric, my soul partner, thank you for believing in me and for giving me the opportunity to follow the call of my soul, your love has given me wings.
Ashlin, Joseph, and Eli, you guys are amazing! You are my greatest teachers. Thank you for the sacrifices you are willing to make and for picking up the slack at home when I am gone at all these trainings. I promise to try not to coach you all the time. 😉
Mom and Dad, my foundation, a million thanks for believing in me when I doubt. I know I can do this work because you have given me a strong foundation of love to build on.
Pam Ballo, thank you for your gentle guidance and love until I was ready to accept this calling.
Darren Stoupe, thank you for your firm “OWN YOUR SHIT” it was exactly what I needed to get out of my shit and into a glitter filled tomorrow.
Steph Lagana, thank you for creating a sacred place to work out the demons without judgement.
Pam, Darren, and Steph you have set the bar high, thank you.
Last but not least to my Sacred Seven, you know who you are you. Thank you for the phone calls and coffee dates. Thank you for allowing me to vent, break down, fly, and practice on you. I am so humbled and honored that you have agreed to be on this journey with me; to be my guinea pigs and my Jiminy Crickets. Expect your own little box in the next few months, you have earned it!!!
Now on to studying I have three books, a million pod casts, and videos to watch in the next three weeks!!!
