We made it through our first year at the Coffee Shop. The sales that used to make us feel so successful have become expected. And things are running along quite smoothly.
I am writing a book, coaching clients to full self expression and getting what they want to out of life, being as supportive as I can to my mother who is in and out of hospital and trying to fulfill all the other roles I have in life.
And I am looking forward to one more hour of sleep. I am sure there is more to life than sleep. Being fulling alive in the world is great, and my experience right now is 18 hours days and being on my feet a lot of the time.
So where do I find time to nourish myself? The Choir. I've been singing with the choir for a little while now. We had a concert last year, we sang at Rifflandia this summer and a new session just started.
I am also just completing my International Coaches Certification Training. I sometimes wonder how much training one needs to coach. I have trained for years now. Since 2003. I feel quite competent and there are always those doubts. Or questions that I ask myself. Should I use these tools? Which ones would work best with this client.
I got to practice coach on my teacher today. That was interesting. I was aware that I was going in and out of "trying to do it right" and "being of service".
Eventually I think I would like to teach Coaches. The thought of that excites me. I will coach for a few years. And enjoy my life a bit before I choose to pass the torch.
And I am also keenly aware that my grand kids are growing up quickly. And I haven't spent a lot of time with them recently. I guess life really does go in waves. I am going to write a list of the things that I would like to exist or adventures to take in my life and then make a plan to have them happen.
