I’m on a mission to make the most of every moment of the rest of my life.
I no longer have time for the bullsh*t.
For a long time (years, in fact), I have fantasized about all the ways that I would change my life. I would change my career. I would get in shape and eat healthier. I would travel more, and use every page in my passport. I would be more creative, write more, and take more photographs.
But day after day and year after year, I did nothing. I had big plans and dreams and no action. Can you relate?
One day, I looked at myself in the mirror and I was in my thirties. Where did all my time go? I realized that I was wasting my time on things that didn’t matter and I had put my dreams on hold. I made a decision to change the trajectory of my life, to focus more attention on what I wanted and practice confidence that I could achieve my goals.
I went to seminary, where I learned a new language for spirituality and became a spiritual director. I apprenticed with a career coach and learned the spirituality of work. I learned how to help people tell their stories and find work that they love. I discovered and fell in love with Danielle LaPorte’s Desire Map and Firestarter Sessions.
I offer coaching and workshops to help women (and a few self-selecting men) create a vision for lives that they love AND consistently make decision that bring them closer to that vision.
When I was in my 20’s, I did a guided meditation with my life coach. In that meditation I discovered my mission. At the time, I didn’t really know what it meant, but I felt it so powerfully in my body.
I am a light on the path. I kept hearing it over and over in my head during the meditation.
I am a light on the path. For over 10 years, I have held that sentence in my heart.
I am a light on the path. In my mind, I imagined myself as the torchbearer. She who goes in front and lights the way for all that run beside and behind her. She illuminates the path.
Since that meditation, I’ve come to learn more about what it means to carry the torch. I feel the responsibility and the privilege of my calling as a teacher and coach.
