I received a text at 3:30 in the morning. “That’s it. It’s over. I’m done with him forever.” One of my clients had entered the shit storm. “I’m here when you need me.” is all I wrote in response.
I’m surprised how someone else’s negative behavior towards me can still throw me for such a loop. I thought that after all this time and ALL the negative life experiences that I’ve had that I couldn’t be surprised or hurt anymore by anyone. Wrong. Fuck me.
Clarity. I have forgiven him. He’s clueless and doing his best. I felt it. I feel it. I can’t hold anger in my body, I literally can’t. I was close to him, I saw him and found myself laughing. It felt better to forgive and let go in that moment. I will be doing that…
I watched a TED talk this morning by Tracy McMillan, a relationship writer and coach. She’s been married and divorced three times and asks the question that is consistently asked of her, “How can one who has failed miserably at marriage be advising others on relationships?”
started Saying Yes to Me. Translation: I started saying no. All. The. Time.
I would love to say at this point things got easy, the magic phrase was revealed, ta-da, and I lived happily ever after, no pain and that was that, but that would be a lie.
The day I realized that saying yes was the solution to the very problem of pain and suffering it created in me, I ended up quitting my job and starting my new business.
A year ago I said YES to working out! When I began, I could barely manage a 25 minute workout. Now I do two- hour long workouts back to back on a regular basis!!!
Welcome to Say Yes Coaching! I am so happy to have you as I continue my adventure in coaching. It has been exactly one year since I began my own fitness journey…
