How was your 2017?
For me, it was like something took my life and turned it upside down half way through 2017!
I understood this was to be a year when things could get “shaken up” but I didn’t think that was my fate.
I was planning a group online coaching program and several online training courses. Not so fast, the Universe had other plans. In June, my husband received a diagnosis of small cell lung cancer, a nasty one; and since then, nothing has been the same.
Actually in September after few chemo treatments, he felt much better and he was delighted to return to some of his normal activities. BUT another life flipping event occurred for us…a serious fall as he was exiting his truck, caused a severe fracture of his hip. So now he was in hospital, in greater pain and immobile too!
So I can now reflect on what 2017 meant for me “get authentic in a deeper way“. I experienced many “dark night of the soul” times when waves of emotion, little sleep and a huge increase in responsibility for organizing another’s life took my emotions on a roller-coaster ride. Every modality, thought-process and technique that I was planning to use for others, I definately applied for myself, just in order to survive.
That was “getting real” with genuine experience for me.
Much gratitude for the personal growth these lessons offered and with a new sense of calm and resolve, I welcome 2018!
