There was a moment in my life when I felt completely lost, unsatisfied and without much reasons to keep going.
I wouldn’t say that I was depressed, but for sure I was not far from that.
What kept me going were my family, my friends and my eternal hope that one day, I would figure out why I was feeling that way.
And I did, I was unhappy because part of my “planed life”, mostly profession related, was not going the way I’d expected and dreamed of.
With that, I also realised, that it was in my hands to do something about it.
I had the power of choice, and I chose that I would do something!
I started my search and research and I found ways to help myself out of this mess.
First I started to ask myself what I really wanted by connecting to my feelings and visualising the life that I wanted, and the professional life that I desired. What was going well on them? What was not?
After having a bit of clarity, I started to plan how I could change the things that I wanted to change.
I asked for help from friends, I attended some taster class in different modalities of coaching and other personal development programs till I founded the ones that felt the best for me.
I started watching other professionals; talked to people and took the necessary trainings to prepare me to a new career; and that gave me even more clarity.
I kept going with mistakes and successes and build up an entirely new plan and a path of satisfaction and achievements.
Was it always easy and smooth? Nah, far form that! But every time that I faced a challenge which put me down, or when old feelings and doubts haunted my mind I remembered that I have a choice.
I chose to work on myself, on my mindset, on my beliefs and limitations and I chose to let go of everything that was not serving me anymore.
I chose to believe in myself, to love myself and to keep going and growing in this mist of challenges, surprises and joys that make life what it is.
