What If You Stopped Pretending That Everything Was Okay?

You have a routine and you do the same thing day in and day out.  Lately, though, something is different.  You have begun to look at your life, your routine and have noticed that it is no longer what you want.

You’ve begun to think – I would rather be doing something else.  I want to make an impact in this world.  I want to create.  I want to be living differently.   

You have no idea where to begin.  You have no idea what you want.  You have no idea who you are.   Change begins right here.  When you begin to see things differently.  When you begin to answer the question, “how are you,” honestly.  When you answer the question honestly to yourself first.

When you see a friend and they ask, “How are you?”, do you just smile and say, “Fine, and you?”

What if you stopped pretending that everything was okay?   What if you said what’s on your mind?

I’m ready for a change.  I’m not the same person I was.  I want to be happier.

When you do that, you connect with another person.  Possibly someone that can offer you some insight.  When you ask for help, you connect with community.  When you connect with community you begin to see things differently, to think differently and you gain traction and then you gain momentum. When you smile and say, “I’m fine,” when you really aren’t, you just stay stuck in the same place.

What if you stopped pretending that everything is fine?  What’s possible?

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
