My why

A few weeks ago, I became an Accredited, Certified Emotional Freedom Techniques Practitioner with EFT International and in the announcement that my mentor Katie Walker published, I said that an article by Brene Brown “The Midlife Unravelling” really resonated with me and I’m going to share a little bit more about why.

In my late 20’s I bought a book called “What should I do with my life?” by Po Bronson, the first “self-help” book I had ever bought, loved the title and the cover photo and I was kind of expecting to see the answer on the cover too; (I was more of a "let’s hit the bar" girl than a reader, so it sat unopened for a few years).   A few months after I bought the book, I went to see a physic (1st and last time) who told me I was going to live in Australia.     I guess the search for more started then.   This feeling that I wasn’t really aligned with my destiny quite yet, that my life’s purpose was out there somewhere and it wasn’t really this.   The seed was planted, and I did go on an 8 week trip around Oz, I did run into my now husband in a Perth bar and we did go on to be married with two children.  

Today, I am celebrating my 48th birthday – woo hoo!  Another year on this earth is always a blessing.    About six years ago, a lovely friend of mine left us, her time on earth was over and her beautiful soul started a new journey.    She was 30 years old, just married, the world was hers for the taking.   A clear message to me that my life was not a given, it was not to be taken for granted and every wrinkle, every grey hair, every sign that I was aging was an absolute gift; again I pondered what my life’s purpose was. 

My husband bought me my morning coffee in bed this morning and his words were “you're halfway there”; whilst that’s probably not the most romantic thing to say to someone on their birthday, I totally appreciate his sentiments and the truth of his words. 

Yes, I am coming to an age where I’m going to have to start taking my superannuation more seriously, but more importantly, I’m at an age where I have to start living my wild and precious life.   I have to shake off the limiting beliefs, I have to let go of my fear of being judged, I have to step out of the self-doubt, I have to acknowledge that I am just as important as everyone else in my life, I have to sit in uncomfortable spaces and learn how to move through them, I have to establish strong boundaries – I have to drop all of those patterns that keep me from doing what I am here to do.  For me, this time is an awakening, a rebirth, an opportunity, a chance to let go of the painful, protective patterns of the past.   

Is it easy?  No.  Is it worth it?  YES!!  I don’t want to continue down this path for the next 30 years!

So what’s this got to do with you?

Well, how are you going?   Does life feel like it should be great, but it’s not?   You see the way you react to things and think “that’s not me, that’s not truly me”.   You notice that although you are living your life, you are not actually living your life.  You are pretending everything is OK when it isn’t.   You are too busy to change anything, you just have to get on with it. 

In my experience of how the universe works; if you don’t listen, the message keeps on repeating itself until you do.  It get’s louder.

….Back to my why.  

If I can help you to even see a glimpse of your potential, to start believing that you are worthy of all the good stuff, to feel happier, to respond differently to challenges in your life, to improve your relationships, to own your gifts, to be authentically you – if I can help you to scratch the surface with any of that – then I'll be living my life’s purpose.  I’ll be happier than a pig in poo!  I’ll be doing what I’m here to do.    

With love x
