The Great Escape
Hello beautiful souls,
I wanted to get this blog out as its my first week of being self employed full time. It has been a while since I last wrote a blog, and I’m hoping to get back in to it, more so as I know it’s going to be an amazing journey, but also in the hope that it will inspire others to live the dream.
So, its been a strange six months and I’ve gone through a great deal of change, but now finally it feels as if everything is coming together! Earlier this year, I was struggling with a massive life changing decision. Should I take a massive leap of faith, leave my full time stable 9 – 5 job and go self-employed full time. At the time, my mind was on finances and everyone I spoke to seemed to be telling me that this is what I needed to think about. This made the decision all the more difficult as it set doubts racing in my mind. I took a weekend away on retreat, time to really hear what my inner voice was saying without the clouds around me. It became clear to me that I was terrified, I didn’t quite believe I could do it, but inside was a voice telling me to just trust.
That feels like ages ago now, and although it was a struggle getting my head round trusting in myself and trusting the universe to take good care of me, I made a decision. So, despite having a mortgage to pay and a cat to feed, I decided I would take the leap of faith and just go for it. Whatever happens next, I’ll deal with it. It was a now or never moment, but I knew as soon as I had made the decision, it felt like relief. It felt like it was the right thing to do, and it felt like an adventure. Life isn’t just about money. It’s about doing what you love, making a real difference in people’s lives and giving the best of yourself in every moment.
To get me through these last few months, I’ve tried to think of it as an adventure and make it smaller in my mind to be able to manage the change. It feels easier to do this, and to take it in my stride. It only hit me on the last day of work on Friday! I was surrounded by cards with beautiful messages of support, crying colleagues and that’s when I realised that now it really is all down to me! A terrifying proposition, but I had no idea how much I believed in myself until that moment came. I realised I wouldn’t be doing this if I didn’t have real faith that it would work. I also realised I was absolutely doing the right thing. It was humbling to realise how much impact I’ve had on the people around me. It’s an amazing feeling when you’re the source of inspiration for people and you realise how much you’re loved.
And so…the adventure begins with a blog! When I look back at previous blogs, it makes me understand how far I have come. This time last year, this didn’t seem possible. It just goes to show just how much you can achieve with a change of mindset and real belief in what is possible. If I can do it, you can do it too.
Above and beyond everything, I take this as another learning journey and I am finding that the clients that I see are all on similar journeys. Part of my work is helping them to uncover and really see their potential. I’ve learned to discover and realise my full potential and I can help you to do the same.
So if there is a dream, if there is a block to your progress, if there’s a need to bring hope back then get in touch with me. My passion is helping people and I can help you. I invite you to think about what the bigger plan is for you, and I’m here to help you make that a reality.
You really can live your dreams. It takes time for courage to appear, but once you’ve cleared the doubt that holds you back, the world is your oyster. Get in touch…and let me help you make it happen!!!
Love and light,
