Want to know how to embody your courageous spirit? I challenge you to connect with your bravest self with this simple step:
I’ve been BUSTED – by my 10 year old! Which feels uncomfortable and weird and fills me with pride all at the same time.
My daughters are officially out of school for summer and have lovely swaths of time to themselves. Some of that time was spent raiding the “super secret goodies” my husband and I keep downstairs for our “grown up snacks” – you know, organic bean chips, 77% dark chocolate and the like.
Upon discovering a half bag of chips was missing, we asked the girls to fess up.
To which our youngest stated “….I might have had one – but only one….” (Like that’s actually possible.)
The oldest said “I got into the upstairs bag, but I didn’t even know there were snacks down here!”
So we asked again and our youngest looked us in the eyes and said firmly “Two. I took two chips. That is all.” Which we knew was totally impossible.
Here are confessions of an alchemist….PLUS, I have placed a gift here for you. It is waiting at the bottom of this love letter…
A gifted woman asked me a powerful question this week:
What’s the difference between your life coaching and mental health counseling? And I responded with the standard (BORING) party lines: counseling tends to be more about healing the past while coaching is focused on present choices and strategies to create positive change.
Except that I do both. I have the equivalent of a giant rolling Craftsman toolkit chock-full of techniques to generate alchemy.
So I dove deeper. Uncomfortably deep, in fact.
