I find it totally fascinating, the older I get and the more I allow myself to learn, the less I know, the more confused I sometimes become - and the more at peace with myself I feel.
The more I open up to others about my own insecurities, fears and concerns, the more it is returned and it is so beautiful to form these deeper friendships based on honesty and trust.
As I come to end of my 9 months on the Newfield course, the more I have grown into who I am - every time I coach there is another learning - every time I coach a movement session - again there is a lesson.
It’s staying open to this learning.
Of course there are days when I don’t feel it, see it or sense it - where I am stuck in myself, listen to the negative voice - allow it to be louder than the other voice that I would be far better off hearing!
How wonderful it is though to know that and know that is what happens and then find a way to stop it. Recently that has been by reaching out to the people in my life.
It can be very easy to close down and shut the world out - and it’s sad to think that is an experience for many people - including myself in the past.
Every day is a new opportunity - every moment a choice of how to live and be in this world - and be all we can and want to be.
My learning curve has been up and down - flipped me on my head - spun me round - got me dizzy and I have loved every minute of it.
Without it I would not be in a place where I can write what I do.
I sit in a place of not quite knowing where to take myself next and that’s ok. What I do know is there are people who can help me in the places I have no idea what to do and I can do the same for them - learning together.
Whether as a coach, coachee, student, teacher, giver, receiver, supporter or leader - I am so grateful for this journey into myself and others.
Can I ask you take a moment to consider the lessons you have learnt in your life journey so far, who from and the impact it has made on you.
Maybe tell them……
