be a good child who learns to obey, stay within the lines drawn for you, grow up to be who the outside world tells you to be … go to college … get a good job … make others proud … meet “the perfect” (wo)man … get engaged … plan a wedding … buy a house … have a baby … live to work (not work to live) … obsessively check your ever-growing retirement account or stress over the ever-growing pressure to start saving … while spending most of your life waiting for when all the things “you should do” make room for all the things you want to do.
make it to retirement, maybe you wish to spend more time with your family but come to find they’re busy living their own lives. So you attempt to travel or dust off that list of hobbies you’ve saved for one day … one day, when you realize your body, and energy, just isn’t like it used to be.
. . . are right on track, checking off each box, yet you feel empty, bored, unfulfilled, or don’t even know what you’re feeling.
. . . feel like you’ve lost your edge, heart, power, or passion for showing up as you used to. Or maybe you never did but wish you could.
. . . know what you want but your confidence is at zero and your doubts are at 100.
. . . can’t seem to get off a merry-go-round of broken relationships and endless checking of the single box. The possibility of having a family is shrinking with each passing year.
. . . feel your life is good but desire to have a little more balance, fun, or adventure.
. . . have endured profound loss – maybe divorce, death, heartbreak loves, unexpected job loss – and just can’t find your way through the pain. You’re numb and empty and your faith is wavering. Your mind has become a hamster wheel of regret and what if’s.
. . . are the star of your small universe but at night you lie awake wishing you could duck out of the limelight, step away from the pressure and do something different.
. . . crave to make a difference in the world.
. . . battle massive ADD with a splash of anxiety – all due to having too many ideas with no idea of where to begin.
Wherever you are, perhaps it’s time to start an adventure of discovering a few of my favorite questions? The kind of questions that are very often buried under wild expectations, false assumptions, and limiting beliefs. Questions like…
It’s not what do your parents, lover, friends, children, boss, employees, clients, or therapist want. This is all about YOU.
(Don’t know what you want? That’s okay too … we’ll get you there.)
