A Life Changer
Recently, March in fact, life threw me a serious curved ball and my nearest and dearest was taken seriously ill. It was a very emotional time and to begin with I wasn’t sure if he was going to live. The fact this was happening meant a life change and my priorities had to change too. Work took a back seat as did most other things, my family came first as did doing anything positive I could to help the situation. I spent most of my time at the hospital, sleeping and eating there as things were critical.
Why am I sharing this with you?
Because I want you to know just because I am a coach doesn’t mean I won’t get severe challenges to deal with. And that when things go wrong I don’t have a magic wand to make it better. But what I do have is this.
Inner resources like resilience, tenacity and a faith that helped me through this extremely difficult time. A wonderful set of supportive friends and family who were there 24/7 if I needed them. People brought me food, gave me lifts, took me for fish and chips and I found that caring and supporting human kindness is still very much alive and kicking.
You may be wondering what I could have possibly learned from such a painful experience. And I did wonder myself to begin with but sure enough here it is.
• The opportunity for growth.
• Gratitude and love for my life and those in it.
• Never to take life or those in it for granted.
•It made me rethink what is important in my life and my goals.
• Reaching my full potential is important so watch this space!
The good news is, my nearest and has pulled round and doing very well. He has a second chance at life, an opportunity to grab life by the horns and live it to the full, but not just for him for us both as a loving partnership
