I’m hungry – but I don’t know what to eat.
I’m unfulfilled – but I don’t know what I crave.
I’ve been engaging in “intentional procrastination”; investing in me so that I can be better for you – after hundreds of hours of training and study I’m now a registered yoga teacher and certified strengths coach (hence why you haven’t heard from me for a while. Head down, bum up ‘n all that).
I’m in a phase of my business where I have so many ideas, and I’m qualified to deliver all of them. But I need to get clear.
I’ve been decluttering my house, manically, so that I can be in clear space to clear my mind.
In the midst of it all I met death head-on and wept for my daughters who had to face the death of their beloved nanny far too young (another reason I’ve been head down).
I know life is short.
I know I’m here to make a difference.
I’ve pledged $1000 to the Rainforest Alliance because it’s time to balance my decades of consumerism out, and because, well, I’ve grown up. Just a bit. (The grey hairs prove it).
I’m trying to be more sustainable: using eco cleaners, even making my own, using sustainable bags when I shop.
I don’t eat meat anymore.
I got a tattoo.
I’ve changed, and it’s terrified my husband. So, we talked. We listened. We connected. We’re witness to each others’ lives: to our growth, development, to our ‘unbecoming’.
I’ve changed, yes: I’m becoming more who I am.
As the quote goes: “Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s about un-becoming everything that isn’t really you, so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.”
My tattoo means Steadiness and Ease, or to put it more poetically: Strength and Grace.
I’m calling on my strength to be true to myself, and the grace to recognize some won’t understand, won’t follow.
But to those who do –
Thank you. I’d like to be of service to you.
To guide you on your unbecoming; to become more of who you are, to step into your light, your power. To awaken your potential: to be not just an incredible mummy but an incredible woman, whatever your path in life.
Exactly how I do this, is yet to become clear.
A friend said to me recently “I’ve been worried about you. You’ve climbed lots of mountains this year”. Yep, but you need to get to the top to be able to see the best way down. I’m at the top. I’m taking in the view. I’m digesting, reflecting. To acknowledge it’s been a hard and turbulent year is a release, and a relief. Now I’m giving myself permission to take time in stillness, for as long as I need, so that I can come down clear, intentional, with strength and grace.
Stay with me. Hold space for me. Talk with me. Being on any kind of brink, or edge, can be lonely. This entrepreneurial edge is, quite frankly, scary. So please, talk with me. Hit reply and let me know a bit about you: what’s your biggest challenge? your goal? your dreams, desires? What would you love most from me: more workshops, yoga, meditations, individual coaching, desire mapping…
I’d love to hear from you. Just one sentence or a whole download; I’m listening.
