Are you evolving, digressing or both?

Are you the same person you were one year ago? I know I have changed in the past year considerably.

Some days I evolve and some days I digress. The key is to catch yourself and move forward. This isn’t always easy.

I have spent most of my career in sales training and retail management. My passion is working with people and helping them succeed.

Just over a year ago I decided to go in a different direction. I was certified in Louise Hay’s Heal Your Life® training program to facilitate workshops as well as a certified Heal Your Life® coach.

I then became certified as a Reiki practitioner and recently a Reiki Master/Teacher.

Before this, I went through some self healing, faced my own insecurities and denials and could not believe the difference it made. I started with the Heal Your Life® book by Louise Hay. This book really started the process for me. I decided I wanted to share the healing it provided and felt it would do the same for others.

I quit my secure management position to follow my passion. It was terrifying and rewarding at the same time. For me, it was time to take a leap of faith.

I often asked myself…  Am I crazy? What am I doing?

You know that voice in your head that has you questioning yourself constantly when you go out of your comfort zone? Through it all, I knew I was doing the right thing. I knew if I didn’t do this, I would always wonder.

Don’t get me wrong. At the beginning there were days I wasn’t convinced I made the right decision.

You are probably wondering why I am writing about my journey.

I have a point, believe me.

We all have our own process when we change direction. This was mine.

What about you? What is your dream? It doesn’t have to be all or nothing.

Some people start something part-time while still working. I know many who have done this. 

There is no right or wrong way. Whatever feels right for you is the best way.

This is a very personal decision. This is what I needed to do for me. You might be completely different. Perhaps for you, it is doing a little more for yourself and has nothing to do with changing careers.

We all need time to ourselves to just be.

We tend to do everything for everyone else. We make sure everyone else is taken care of and happy. 

How often do you give yourself the same consideration?

If you think about it, you are so much more helpful to those around you if you can just take a few minutes for yourself every day. This could be a bubble bath, meditation, going for a walk, or whatever works for you.

This also gives you time to think. It gives you time to slow down a bit. We all need this in our busy lives. We all need to take care of ourselves. It is so important.

Are you interested in changing or adjusting course? Perhaps for you looking at things from a different perspective would be helpful.

My next workshop, “Experience your Good Now!” will be in Calgary in November. It deals with this topic and more. Click on the link below for more information.

I also offer personal sessions if that works better for you.
