I AM a mother.
I AM a lover.
I AM a teacher.
I AM an artist.
I AM a writer.
I AM a coach.
I AM beautiful.
I AM brave.
I AM whole.
I AM spirit.
Indeed, that is all I need to be.
I have moved through my life with a deep, aching need to know. To connect. To feel deeply and meaningfully, and to write.
That ache lead me down many winding roads, and most recently, into a master’s degree in Consciousness Studies. Every moment of that learning was like coming home. A deep, powerful, resonance.
Part of my Consciousness program offered a certificate program on Transformational Coaching. The valedictorian, perfectionist student in me signed up, because, why not make it harder?
I was shocked to discover that coaching was not as cheesy and superficial as I once thought. I had the wrong impression. Coaching is deep, personal work. A creative relationship where I experienced a level of listening and non-judgement I had never known before. I AM INDEED took on a whole new face. And, I began to explore the nature of my yearning for an authentic life…. and have been astounded by my discoveries. I began to know my husband, my three children, my parents, and most importantly, my self in a more expansive, meaningful way.
This blog used to be my story. The old posts here are curiosities for me now. It is a representation of where I came from, who I believed myself to be, the thoughts that created my world…. and a true measure of my personal transformation at this point.
I use this blog to WAKE UP. To breathe life back into my be-ing. to finally follow the dreams that lead me, to make sense of the moments big and small in my life that have revealed parts of my soul.
To awaken myself to all that I know is already within.
