Overwhelmed and Not Enough or Grateful and Abundant?

Do you ever have so many wonderful ideas and opportunities that you are just so excited and try to do them all at the same time?  Oh I do. I’ve always been a whirlwind.

It’s served me well for many, many years.  I get a lot accomplished.  I also realize that even though I get a lot accomplished, I’m sometimes not quite sure just exactly what I’ve accomplished OR celebrated or enjoyed it.  I’ve jumped from one accomplishment onto the next.

I’m reminding myself to slow down.  Pace myself.  This is not a race. This is a journey to be savored.

I’ve just begun coaching a group of employees.  One of their core challenges is time.  They all say they don’t have enough of it.  And they are fixated on not having enough.  What I have been telling them (which may be too woo-woo) is that what you put your attention on you get more of and it grows.  Therefore, if you are putting your focus on not having enough time, guess what?  You will not have enough time. Instead, when you put your focus on, I have more than enough time, you seem to magically have enough.  But it’s not magic.  It’s the power of gratitude.

Then I found this photo on Facebook:

I’m going to share this with the group today, before our next group coaching call.  It might be hard for some to hear, but that’s where change begins.  When you feel uncomfortable.  That’s when you begin to get curious, ask questions and do something differently.  Like putting your attention toward abundance and gratitude.

What do you want to refocus your mindset around?  What do you want more of?

About Coach Wendy

Welcome to my blog!  I’m so excited that you are here!  You see, I stopped blogging over two years ago.  One day, my blog site just went totally wonky and I just gave up on it.  

To tell the truth, it was a good thing that my blog did go wonky because my life and my purpose were wonky.  I needed to figure out who I was and what I wanted.

So I did.  I’ll tell you how I did in a minute but first, let me give you a bit of backstory here:

I was a professional organizer for 12 years.  I loved what I did for many years but toward the end of that time, I started feeling like I wanted to do something different.   I took coach training through Coach Approach for Organizers.  I earned a Certificate in Life & ADHD coaching.  Then I didn’t do anything with it.  I kept working as an organizer.  I kept asking myself, each day, “so what do you want to do?  Organize or coach or a combination of both?”  It was a confusing time.  What made it worse was not making a decision.  So one day, I had a long talk with myself and made a choice.  My heart and my head both told me to coach.  So in November of 2017, I did a hard stop with organizing and jumped into coaching.   

Looking back on how I made my decision, how I got out of the land of indecision, there was a path.  What I discovered when I wrote down the steps, was that I had taken this path many times before in my life when I was at a crossroads.  I realized what I had was a path that could help others in the same situation.  You can download your very own guide here.  Once I took the first step, acknowledging that I needed to change, the remaining 4 steps came very easily.

One of the big ah-ha’s that I had as I was taking this journey was not isolating myself.   So this time, with this blog, I have support.  First, I never would have begun this blog without a very good friend of mine, (you know who you are) who encouraged me to begin blogging again.  I also have a wonderful virtual assistant who will be here to support me.   I get to write from the heart and my VA will post it for me (so I don’t have to pull my hair out with the technical stuff).

In this blog, I’m going to write about living your life on purpose.  That can mean many different things to many people.  To me it means living life mindfully, with adventure and with those around me that I love.

With this blog, I would love to connect with individuals that are at a crossroads in life.  Unsure of who they are, what they want and what their next step will be. If this sounds like you, then you are in the right place. If it doesn’t sound like you, but you know someone who right now is at a crossroads, would you share my blog with them?  I am hoping to pass along some inspiration, hope and if I’m really successful, to be able to start them on their own path.

I’m so happy you are here.  When we are connected to one another, great things happen.

❤️ Coach Wendy
