Midlife — when it is, what it means and how it happens changes over time; it is both generational and particular to each of us. We are most likely of living very different lives than our parents; our hopes and visions for our future selves may be different than theirs and also unclear to ourselves. During the second half of our life we generally experience changes in our values, priorities, roles, expectations, and health. Changes occur in what it means to: work; retire; be a parent; be a child to aging parents; be physically active; be a friend; be healthy; to love. Changes occur in our lifestyle, caregiving, home, downsizing, body needs, limitations, opportunities, constraints, and preferences.
What is next for your physical, mental, emotional, social, familial, vocational, and spiritual life?
Thurman reminds us that what the world needs is people who have come alive. As you search for a new way forward, one that makes you come alive, one with joy and purpose, that meets your needs and advances your new life wellness, coaching can help. What new paths do you want to explore? Where do you want to grow? What is next for you? What will lay claim to your heart and life, to your hours and days? What do you need to show up for yourself.
Coaching is a relatively new profession with a long history. In coaching I work along side people in a process of discovery, action, and hope that helps convey them from where they are to where they want to be. Coaching is a process of both "being" and "doing". The "being" process involves contemplation, reflection, awareness and discovery; this leads to the "doing" process of action and movement. Life coaching is all about you. I take an evidence-based, wholistic and contextualized approach. The coaching profession has training, certification, professional standards, ongoing research, and credentialing. Yet it is not regulated by a state agency. So anyone can call themselves a coach. I have professional training, am certified and credentialed, engage in ongoing continuing education, and abide by the ethical standards of the profession.
LIfe coaching is not therapy. We don’t go back into the past to fix it. We start with the belief that you are capable. With coaching, you are free to dream openly with a committed, non-judgmental and skilled listener and coach. Coaching serves as a catalyst to change that feels right to you. We partner together to help you gain clarity, generate a way forward, and find the momentum and hope you need to create the life you want to live, in the context of your own experiences, circumstances, values, responsibilities and opportunities. I bring presence, safety and evidence-based approaches informed by 20+ years exploring women’s health and wellness, and ongoing personal growth and learning, to facilitate the process.
Like most things, it depends. It depends on where you are now, how far you have to go, your commitment to the process, your time availability, and your resources. It‘s really up to you. It’s not about breaking the bank. It‘s about showing up for yourself so you can move from where you are to where you want to be.
Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive (Howard Thurman)
