When I write these blogs, I write what seems to feel right at the moment. I recently heard someone say, “You can write a new story.” This was referring to someone re-writing their future. This really made me sit up and listen and absorb that concept. I’ve heard many references to creating your own future, creating a bigger life, etc. This tiny little phrase really had an impact.
Before becoming an RN, in a land far far away, long, long, ago, I felt a bit lost. Something wasn’t quite right. Then I lost a job and my life took a new direction. I temporarily took a job that, although I loved the people, was really not something that I loved or even liked that much. I learned a lot during that time period and it forced my hand to look at, “what next?” Through much support from family, I turned my direction 180 degrees to something I wanted to be when I was 4 years old….a nurse.
Here I sit again with another story, one of being a nurse, very satisfied with my nursing career, but looking to the future and, “what next?” This led me to question so many aspects of my life and again I felt lost. Therapy helped me through my divorce years, but there were still unanswered questions(and I didn’t want to analyze anything). That’s how I discovered the benefits of life coaching. I had no idea it would lead me to my own career as a life coach and still enable me to do my other love, which is nursing.
If you think this story is my greatest story, my friends, you are delusional. My new story is still in development. I have yet to tap (although the path is running up to meet me) into what is ahead of me. My real story is here and what is beyond the near horizon. It is so far beyond and exciting that it takes my breath away. Through my own sessions with my coach, I see the possibilities, I’m changing my beliefs, I see the truth of what is; and I’m beginning to trust that it (meaning life) will always turn out the way it’s supposed to. Throw in a good sense of humor from the universe or God and you’ve got one hell of a ride.
What story do YOU want to write? This isn’t about a legacy you leave, if that’s what you are thinking. This is about who or what you want from your life. THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT! See what you can become. What possibilities for modeling or example can you create by becoming something so much more? You are probably wondering “how is that possible?” Influencing others by just living our own lives then urges others to create their own possibilities (this is a whole other topic). I’m so excited while I’m writing that I can just feel that those of you reading this blog will see or feel that your lives can be more than you ever dreamed.
Create YOUR own new story. Just change something in your life, read a book that inspires you (even fiction can be inspirational….my inspiration: Harry Potter), talk with a friend or family member about life’s possibilities, or hire a coach to get you to the possibility of YOUR “New Story.”
My vision for you is to be happy, create a new story for yourself, and pass that on to inspire others.
With Kindest Regards
