How are things in your world?
Well life in Kates shoes has been very up and down, exhaustingly so. Not really from an outward perspective but from inwards. I have been busy but in a good way. In my last blog I talked about signing up to do the life coaching course, which was 3 weeks ago. I finally signed up last Friday. Why has it taken me so long? I will explain.
As I have come to know myself more and understand the way I tick better, I have noticed I seem to follow a pattern. Firstly excitement at the thought of something new that I believe I can or want to do, then the settling down and looking at it more logically and then finally the ‘I can’t do this, what was I thinking of, who do I think I am?’ So that has been the process of the last 3 weeks. Fortunately for me I am surrounded by people who love and believe in me and remind me of who I am. A woman who can.
Have I suddenly decided there will be no hardships or challenges if I do this? No, but I have decided that I am going to give this my best shot and see where it takes me. Choosing the ‘easy’ option and not going for it may seem easier now but in the long run it will slowly suck the life and soul out of who I am meant to be and I will forever be asking myself “what if?”. Now, what are your “what if’s” and how are you going to start moving towards them? If I can, you can, and if you have already started something you never thought you would do please let me know. This is a place to encourage one another.
The materials for the course turned up this week and it felt quite overwhelming as there was a lot more than I though there would be or at least seeing it all in front of me made it so real. A course that has the potential to give you a new career and further you as a person is bound to have a fair amount of study material.
I am going to have to get really organised and plan my time well, I think it will be a real challenge but also very worth while. If you have any good tips on organising your time please let me know. The course I decided to enrol on is very good and lists what should be done when, in conjunction with what, it’s just me working out when that works around all my other roles in life. All those different hats!
As mentioned in previous posts I’m trying to heal my body by changing the way I eat (and also trying to bring Mr H and the kids along for the ride!) It’s actually quite overwhelming at times and tiring as your not just reaching for the usual, easy, known foods. Another reason to be more organised. So I’ve given up the sugar and also caffeine now. I’m sure that sounds a bit miserable to some of you but I’m not finding it that difficult. As Kezia from super naturally healthy says ‘don’t think of it as giving up stuff, but adding lots of good new things in” and I have to say that really helps me as I am discovering all sorts of things that I’m enjoying that are so much better for me. The biggest thing of all is the freedom from counting calories or pointing and no more weighing!
So along with starting my course, trying to think of new meals and also listening to my body and get an idea of what is working for me and what isn’t so much – definitely a lifestyle not a quick fix, I have a fair bit going on in kates shoes!
I hope all is well with you. looking forward to hearing from you.
