Yesterday I wrapped the last session, session 12, with a dear health coaching client. Over 6 months we spent roughly 12 hours together. That's a pretty amazing thing if you think about it. In 12 hours she's changed her life for the better. 12 hours! The power of intention coupled with support and new information IS life changing.
At session 1 she said she felt sick, lost and beaten up.
At session 12 she said she is more herself. She IS more than enough. She feels lighter (and actually is physically, emotionally, spiritually).
At session 1 she knew she was not being valued and she was allowing it to happen.
At session 12 she has stopped being scared and starting believing in herself again.
I'd say that's pretty much one of the best ways one could spend 12 hours.
Here's a little more in her words.
Lacy,Words cannot express my gratitude for your wonderful guidance as I found my truth. Without this journey I have no idea how long it would have taken me to get here, accept and embrace my truth!
Being a perfectionist my ideal might be what you might expect to find in a magazine spread or on an episode of The Cosby Show. Having come so far on this journey, my ideal is not so much on the surface as internal and I think I might already be living my ideal life. It is nothing I ever imagined, collaged or would have ever put into words.
i will try now...
My Ideal Is:
calmness and comfort
stability and assurance
happiness (with a tear mixed in for good measure)
a home filled with living; gently worn but with a story
work that is real and has purpose
laughter with a friend over tea (or wine)
living authentically as a jeans and t-shirt girl with a little flair thrown in just for me
I'm full of gratitude, my heart is full and I can't believe I get to do this work.
May today find you empowered and inspired!
