Over the next couple of weeks you will witness this blog undergo a transformation. Kind of a representation really, of what I have been going through over the past little while.
A few of you are aware that I have begun training to become a life purpose/personal development coach (not quite sure what name I prefer yet), and to date I have two intense courses under my belt. Three more to go and then I begin the certification process..
In the meantime, I intend to deepen my coaching experience (and start changing the world!) by taking on some new clients and sharing my thoughts on life coaching - what it is and how it can help.. on this blog.
During my last course, one of the projects we worked on was creating a life purpose statement - the culmination of a bunch of different exercises that led up to that point. The exercise consisted of determining the impact we wanted to make in the world, premised by an object we considered a metaphor for who we are. In the end, the statement I declared in front of my class was, "I am the ocean that carries people to the land of choices."
And that really is my goal with coaching: to let people know they have choices, even when they don't think they do.
I started this blog a couple of years ago with no idea what I wanted to write about. I think it took me two months just to come up with a title. All I knew at the time was that I had a whole lot going on in my head at times and writing seemed to be a good way for me to get it out.
With a new direction in mind, I decided to read through some of my previous blog posts the other night, thinking I would probably need to move some elsewhere, but realized that most of what I've written fits perfectly with where I'm going next with this, which is kind of cool when you think about it.
