Motherhood has been a whirlwind. Giving birth to Riella Poppy in June 2015 changed my life.
Having many friends who have made the transition to motherhood, I’d heard lots of stories and been given many sage tips. My intention was to go in without expectations. To just flow along with whatever happened and to believe I could handle anything that came along.
Well…I learned that that was an expectation in itself!
There have been many, many, many magical moments but I hit some rough spots too and I’m finding my equilibrium again.
I cannot imagine life without her. She has brought an astronomical amount of laughter into an already giggle-filled house. When Grandma takes her for an hour or a day, we gaze at pictures and videos of her (?? Oh god, we’re those people!).
But she is that special and the landscape on this side of life is so different. It is even more important now to do my best. To become a greater version of my imperfect self with the acceptance of who I am now and where I’d like to head given the massive changes that have occurred. Because she looks to me already and I know there is even more of that to come.
So as I fill my well; and as I find my feet again in this amazing life terrain (and become an expert in nappies, vomit and tantrums), I’m coming back to coaching a year later than I expected – in the first third of 2017.
I feel this is important because Coaching is not about me, it is about YOU. And in order to hold a sacred space for you to bloom and flourish, I need to water my garden in the meantime (Can you tell I love flowers with this analogy?!). But not doing on going coaching doesn’t mean I don’t like helping others or hearing from them! Feel free to shoot me an email though to share your thoughts or if you need any info or if I can refer you to an amazing coach in the meantime.
Thank you for your support and your patience. In the meantime, my diary inserts are still out in the world doing their duty.
