I’ve been going to a life coach for almost a year. This week I “graduated.” Depending on how you look at it it could mean:
- I accomplished what I set out for at the beginning
- The problems I had when I started to work with him are solved
- I am care free and set for life.
None of this is true, but
- I gained a lot of internal tools and ideas on how to keep my life in balance
- I learned the value of being introspective and allow myself the time regularly to be it
- I have been working on identifying my values and how to make a life that is in harmony with them
- I shifted my focus from being worried about money troubles all the time to accept that worrying won’t make any difference about them (if the troubles exist)
- I not just let more joy in my life, but explicitly work on recognizing that I do have plenty of fun.
A couple of months ago we switched form weekly calls to biweekly calls with the life coach and this week I suggested that I do not even need the regular calls. He agreed, so we did a kind of exit interview and compared my status from how it was when we started. Much better and positive.
BTW: These weekly posts about fun, body and spirit is one way to keep myself in check. As long as I keep doing them I know that I am focusing on myself at least enough time to write these self-reflective messages.
So, thank you James for the all help, I’ve got it from here.
This post is part of the series answering how I did this week with my new year resolution of having more fun, working on my body, and being more spiritual?
