I live in a 200-year old house atop a hill in rural New Hampshire with the loves of my life — my husband, Lee and our two kids, Tucker and Andie. This is the 4th old house we’ve renovated, and I can’t imagine ever living in a place that doesn’t have crooked door frames and slanted floors.
One of the activities I love to do with my clients as a holistic life coach is help them create a list of what they love – in all aspects of their life. It’s deeply nourishing and takes you on a self-exploration journey to bring light to all that is magical in your life!
Here is my “love list” ~
I love thrift shops and farm stands. I love cooking with whole, organic foods (but if I’m ever stuck on a desert island, I’d love potato chips, French onion dip, and an endless supply of Corona – they have those things on desert islands, right?)
I love home decorating shows, finding bargains on clearance racks, and white slip-covered furniture.
I’m completely into alternative therapies and love acoustic guitar, female memoir writers, and my trusty old white MacBook. I love the sound of freshly sharpened pencils scratching across the page. I love romantic comedies, watching Sunday afternoon football with my family around me, and our little local independent movie theater.
My daily walks in the woods with our pooch, Georgie Girl are my meditation and if my husband would let me, I’d have more dogs, a flock of chickens, miniature donkeys, and maybe a few sheep. But even though hubby won’t agree, I’m crazy about him anyway and treasure our date nights sitting side by side at the bar of our favorite restaurant sipping margaritas and talking about our lives, goals and future adventures.
How My Calling Became My Work As a Holistic Life Coach
When my kids were born, I knew my greatest teachers had arrived. I still continue to learn from them both every day. And yet, despite being the amazing teachers they are, somewhere along the way… I completely surrendered my whole self — body, mind, and spirit — into their lives. I forgot who I was, what I loved, and what I wanted to do in my life. Since that realization, I have been on a journey to unwind my life from theirs and remember, discover, and reawaken what I love. It was this journey that led me to coaching and that drew me to a holistic life coaching approach, specifically.
Maybe you feel a bit like this too?
It’s so easy to lose ourselves, right? Whether it’s taking care of kids, work, extended family, friends, community…we put other’s needs before our own and eventually we reach a point where we don’t have a whole lot left to give.
Through this process of my own discovery and witnessing it in the lives of my clients, I’ve come to understand that by meeting our own needs, in taking care of ourselves first and giving to ourselves without feeling guilt, we are best able to show up for our family, work, friends and the rest of the world.
