This blog is about new beginnings, mine and my clients.
I think of the new year as a time for review, looking at what worked last year and setting my intention for this fresh new year. Last year was a year really feeling in to letting go. I have been in a 30 year rewarding career that has given me many gifts and it’s time to try something completely new. It’s time to start my own business full time and let go of the security of a permanent job with all the benefits and team mates. It’s time to go sailing!
Last year I felt a lot of fear and turned to face it over and over again. Each time I looked it in the eye and said I see you. Each time I faced it fully I felt a little less tight and a little stronger.
This is the year I cast off the dock lines and leaving the shore for real. I am still in the process of letting go. I am still scared and I am still very excited. I think everyone that wants to move on to something new goes through just this roller coaster and because they can’t face their fear some of them don’t move on. I think this blog will help me and hopefully my readers to feel their fear and do it any way.
Helen so happy for you in your adventure. A brave soul facing a roller coaster of emotion and life chnging events that a glass of wine can fix every now and then. That is if you have wine... I will be following you my dear and looking for insight as I prepare for the retirment adventure. Hugs Anita
As much as I know I'm going to miss you when you set sail, I am SO excited for you and Jean and this unfolding chapter. So many lessons from the sea you'll be able to share with your clients and with your SHM community that will be following your journey (maybe even tracking you down :).
Good for you, Helen! It is so hard to leave the comfort and security of something familiar. Embracing something totally different can be terrifying, but the doors that open up are so fun to explore. I have such a rich, new life now!
