Own this year and beyond! (blog and meeting opportunity)
I hope your new year and decade are off to a great start! Wishing you all the happiest, most peaceful new year and beyond!
I remember who I was at the dawn of this millennium and gosh I have changed so much, mentally, emotionally and physically too, in a good way! I feel I am more stronger and peaceful even with everything that has happened and is still happening, personally & globally!
And to my pleasant surprise, I can see the amazing change in my kids too! I feel I have a connection with them and they are thriving! And that's one big victory considering one of them is a teen and another a tween. I now truly believe that our children learn more from our actions than our talk. All the more reason to take care of ourselves, don't you think?
Humans are social animals and this has never been so obvious at this time and generation, in spite of and despite the "social" media. Loss of community and loneliness is a prevalent issue that percolates down to how we communicate with our family, friends, ourselves (yes, what we tell ourselves) and everyone else.
Some of the responsibilities that overwhelm women in today's generation:
1. taking care of home
2. taking care of family
3. under pressure to be "more"
4. the "shoulds" that society follows blindly
5. and then our bodies start changing and bam, it can be very overwhelming.
I know it because I am dealing with it too!
Sometimes even with the family & friends circle, you might not have the non-judgmental listener and relentless motivator that you might need, especially at this point in life.
More than often, you need more than just talking or texting/messaging on the phone to feel heard and whole. You need to have a body, mind and spirit connection for authentic conversations.
I had unconsciously ventured into Life Coaching out of my own need for support, community and quest for answers after my Mom passed! The group meetings I have held at the local libraries over the past few years have helped me tremendously towards my own physical and mental wellness.
Women supporting each other and getting supported is magic!
For folks who live locally, I would like to continue the 3rd Sunday of the month meetings but I forgot to reserve the room at Alpharetta Public Library. We could meet at the Starbucks on 13800 Haynes bridge road at North Point Parkway this Sunday, 19th January at 5 PM. Do let me know if you plan on attending and I will keep you updated if I need to find an alternate space.
I thank you all for your support over the years and especially this past year as I grieved my dear dad and everything that a huge shift like that entails in anyone's life!
Life is to be lived and lived well! Fight to restore your peace of mind and sense of contentment! Seek help if you need to!
Make this year and beyond your own! Get back the steering wheel of your life!!
