Char is a 12-year-old black lab, pointer, Humane Society mix, who clearly knows what he wants. On the days I work from home, he lies quietly sprawled out on his dog bed until he has deemed it time for his walk. He curls his right front paw around my leg, pulling me; then paces back and forth until I get up. If I don’t get up soon enough he comes back to pull me with his paw until I get up. Now grateful, because we just had our walk, he lies happily panting by my side.
If only the rest of us could be so clear in what we want, confident and courageous in our request and then grateful and appreciative when is was received. What do you want in midlife and beyond? As a life coach, my strength lies in inspiring and supporting professional women in midlife to gain clarity in what they want and the confidence and courage to make it happen. Are you ready for a change? How do we gain clarity in life transitions?
Should I Go or Should I Stay
We may feel stuck in a relationship we’re not so sure about that’s not bad but not great. We may feel stuck in a career that provides a decent income but no longer excites us and allows us to fully use our gifts and talents. We may have done what others expected of us or what we expected of ourselves for years or even decades.
What we did when we were in our twenties or thirties no longer fits us. Sometimes as I work with clients the clear answer becomes to go. Other times merely tweaking a career or a relationship can make a significant difference and we find ourselves happy and engaged in a relationship or career that we had thought was over.
Gain Clarity in Life’s Transitions
Your decisions must be what is right for you. Ultimately you are the best expert on you on the planet. Not knowing how to make that decision, the fear of the wrong decision or fear of hurting others by our decisions can keep us stuck. As I work with clients, I don’t have a one size fits all approach. I’m intuitive and a good listener. I listen for the clues that tell me what you want. I’m curious. I ask questions. Knowing who you are and what you want can feel incredibly empowering. Amazing things happen when you learn to trust your gut, your own inner wisdom. When we have the confidence and courage to follow through and making our dreams come true, we feel great. Do you know what you want to create in the next chapter of your life? It’s your time now to gain clarity and to make it happen.
