Do you know what you want to do with your life? I’m 38 and I’m still working on it!
For the last month I have been working with a life coach trying to give myself a push in the right direction. I’m sure it would be a lot easier if I actually knew which direction to go in. But what is the fun in easy? At first I thought that going to a life coach would be ridiculous. Just not my thing. But after reaching a very long plateau after years of counseling I decided it was worth a shot.
So far, so good! Now, I only have a very limited experience with a single life coach but I have spent years in counseling with at least ten different counselors. We are talking 20 years of counseling on and off. That’s a lot of counseling. Why all the counseling? OMG my childhood would be a long story so we will have to get to that some other time! Anyway, back to the life coaching. It is different from counseling because instead of whining about the past, you focus on how to deal with the future. Or the present. But in a way that is actually useful. Think more training a puppy and less laying on a couch talking about daddy issues.
One of the things I am focusing on with the life coaching is trying to figure out what I want to do when I grow up. Which turns out is less about what I enjoy doing and more about what is stopping me from doing it. It turns out that listening to people who tell you that you can’t do something is not a good idea. Who knew? Right. I already knew that. But I’m working on putting that into practice. I’m working on my Fabulousness.
Sure! I can tell you more about it next Friday.
