|Man oh man, I didn’t realize that making this shift was going to be so challenging for me. It’s interesting that even though I’ve had a TON of signs and some of them have been in-your-face- type of signs, I’m still VERY nervous.|
Am I doing the right thing? Maybe I’m just imagining the signs? Maybe I’m losing a grip on reality? These have been just a few of the doubts running through my mind. Regardless, in spite of my fears and doubts, I’m taking the plunge because there’s a feeling of truth I can’t deny. If you’re into Astrology at all, you may or may not know that Aquarians are known to be humanitarians and true to my sign, I've always had a bleeding heart and a strong urge to help.
In grade 3, my teacher had us choose a partner and write a short skit. I ended up writing one by myself and I wrote an entire play. It was called Three Pennies. It was about a customer in a supermarket who didn't have enough to buy food and another customer in line gave 3 cents so that they could buy whatever they needed(clearly I had no concept of how much food cost).
To my surprise, my teacher asked me if the class could perform it for the school. That must have gone over pretty well because before we knew it, we were performing it for all the parents and I remember thinking it was a big deal because we were doing it at night time.
Besides tooting my own horn, I wanted to share that story with you because there seems to be some truth to the whole "look at what lit you up when you were younger" notion to give you ideas of things you can be doing as an adult.
My life has had a common thread woven into everything I've done...the desire to help.
That's why I created Kindness In Action. There are two parts to this project…
Part 1: People are sick, depressed and turning to addictive behaviours to tune out, suppress or cope with life. I want to share resources, tools and conversations that will impact their physical, mental & spiritual well being. And once they start feeling "better", my hope is that they'll be more inspired and motivated to get behind a cause, that will improve the world we live in. Which is part 2 of the KIA project.
Part 2: Change is so desperately needed. Change in how we treat each other, animals and the planet. People will be able to give from a full cup. If we want things to get better, we have to get better.
As for my business coaching practice, for now I will continue to work with a handful of entrepreneurs because it brings me a deep sense of fulfillment, but I know it's just a matter of time before I let it go completely.
For now, I'll enjoy every moment of it.
