A striking woman with a sparkling smile wheeled her luggage up to the hotel desk. “Life Coach” was embroidered on her bags. We were checking-in for the same writing conference.
Give me your best shot lady, I thought through my smile.
I cringe thinking about my resistant response to her vocation.
Little did I know what a precious gift, and friend, this woman would become. Over dinner that night she asked me a few questions and I found myself pouring out my soul over chicken marsala. What I found was an intentional question-asker, an empathetic listener, and a wise woman who cared about my heart.
Meet Darlene. My Life Coach.
Darlene has helped me get unstuck in areas that I was having difficulty navigating. I am grateful for the tangible benefits that have come from having a Life Coach. Here are a few of them:
1. Clarity: I feel like I am living more intentionally now that I am strategically dealing with the “stuck” areas in my life. Darlene’s pointed questions and tangible assignments help me move forward with precision.
2. Honesty: I easily pour out my heart as I admit my struggles and frustrations to my Life Coach. It is refreshing to be honest and to feel safe as I share.
3. Accountability: Having someone else ask me how I am doing and check-in regarding my forward motion is an important tool for growth.
I am more free, hopeful and confident as I learn healthy ways to deal with lingering hangups.
It was a delight to interview Darlene. View my video and learn more about this wonderful lady and how she can help you too.
