When you look back at this period of time, what would you most like to be proud of? This is a time for growth and answering this one question will help you to focus on your growth.

“Jen I’m so happy, I can’t stop smiling”


This is what Sarah said to me this week, she was feeling really proud of herself and rightly so! She had shown up for herself and experienced huge growth!


The last time we'd talked she was really, really struggling. She'd, had some days off sick because she couldn’t face work, she wasn’t looking after herself. She was doing all of the things to make herself feel worse....

She knew something had to change, she knew the direction she was headed and she didn’t want to go there and so she started to put some of the steps in place that we’d explored together. 


AND she flipped her mindset! She made the decision that she was going to take control of her situation and do absolutely everything possible to give herself what she needed. She started getting up earlier, she got washed and dressed every morning, she started to go outside every day and more.


Once she had made the decision to change her mindset everything changed for her! She felt motivated at work, she was making the most of her evenings, enjoying cooking and this is why she was grinning like a cheshire cat on the phone because she knew that SHE had done that for herself and she realised the power she had to be in control of her own life!

Before our time together and before our current social distancing situation, she said that she would have dealt with her feelings by calling her friends to organise a night out, where she could drink and numb the feelings rather than deal with them - and here she was doing the exact opposite, something she had never thought she could do. 


She showed up for herself and by doing that she grew! She has used this time to grow and this will stay with her forever, now she KNOWS she can do this for herself, she KNOWS she can take control, she KNOWS she is capable of HUGE GROWTH!


You have this in you too! We are all capable of growth, and we are experiencing a time where growth is the best option - so, when you look back on this time, what would you most like to be proud of?
