This is a question that has haunted me over the years (especially in the past 3 years). For nearly 10 years, it was easy “I am a Paramedic”. Prior to that, “I am a student”. Then, for 20 years, “I am a Real Estate Broker”. After that, it became “fuzzy”. Do I call myself a “Consultant or Coach?”
Then I became a bit “lost”. Profound grief due to the loss of my Grandmother, followed by the unexpected announcement by my [now] ex-husband that he didn’t want to be married anymore, then the expiration of my domain name (which I had owned for 10 years that was purchased by the ex) then the expiration of my web hosting, the loss of my previous WordPress theme, etc. My goal for 2012 was to get my website back up (which I did). Gaining momentum has been another story!
Although I am progressing each day, some days are more of a challenge than others. I often feel like a ping pong ball!
At “40 something”, I am not as young as I used to be! Change is tough!
Now I frequently ask myself “What do I want to be when I grow up?”
That answer hasn’t changed.
I want to help others through my story.
- I will do this through Coaching/Consulting
- I will do this through being a public speaker
- I will do this by being a Best Selling Author
At the moment, I have learned a few things:
Trying to do any of these while looking for a place to move, trying to pack, and having your home shown constantly, doesn’t work!
Trying to do this while trying to sell a car, and find one to buy, is insanity!
Trying to do both of these while raising two teen boys without any help is COMPLETE insanity!
My goal for this year [among others], is the same as last year, and the year before: to have the opportunity to “relish in boredom”.
