Firstly I want to thank those of you who commented on last weeks post. I was really excited to hear that lots of you have been inspired to start cutting out sugar, even on a small level, which is fantastic! Small changes can make a big difference. Some of you had already started your journey – well done! I so love hearing from you and that what I am writing is helpful and enjoyable.
Now on to today’s post. If you know me or read my blogs regularly you will be aware that I am always doing something new! It could be some kind of craft (although I haven’t been doing a lot of that lately), a project, something to the house or a personal endeavour.
Something that I started last year was volunteering at a hospice not far from me. I was doing some creative things with patients that came in for day care. Due to lots of different factors that didn’t work for me, but it was a very positive experience and I met some lovely people. I can’t remember if I mentioned in a previous post about it but to start with I felt a little bit like I had failed. I then realised that trying does not mean failing, it just didn’t fit for me and that’s ok, it’s not trying in the first place that’s the problem.
So onwards and upwards as they say. I’m still doing Fridays as a volunteer at the reception of my church, which is also a community centre. If you want to check it out the web address is www.eastgate.org.uk
I have also started doing a little cleaning job once a week which is handy for some extra money and the house is so lovely so is a real pleasure to clean. I’m not looking to do any more cleaning than that though other than what needs doing here!
The most exciting new development for me is that I have started a course in life coaching. The one I am doing at the moment is like a mini introduction to life coaching to see if it really is something I want to pursue, which I most definitely do. Next week I am enrolling onto the full life coaching course that will mean I can start practising as a coach at the end of it. I should be able to finish it within a year as I’m not working. I am so excited. This feels like the ‘thing’ I have been looking for for a long time.
The aim of a life coach is to support his or her client, helping them indentify and realise their dreams and ultimately living their lives to their full potential. What an incredible opportunity, to help people be the best version of themselves doing what they love. Sounds right up my street!
So what I want to know is what are you up to? What is going on in your world? Do you have any plans for the Easter holidays?
Looking forward to hearing from you
Much love and happy Easter
