If you had asked me this time last year if I would be the one with the internship, I probably would have laughed at you and asked if you had gotten me confused with my MBA husband. But I can assure you that I have never been clearer that I am indeed not my MBA husband, that I have a fabulous journey all of my very own to explore in this life, and that I'm going to have fun doing it...dadnabit!
Lacy and I have always said that the Universe is conspiring in our favor, and in the last couple weeks, I pulled back the curtains and saw stage hands sprinting feverishly behind the scenes pulling off one heck of a production for me on behalf of the big U. In a matter of just 6 days, I learned about a complete stranger from a friend, reached out to that stranger, had an engaging phone conversation with her, agreed to meet in person, and accepted my new job as intern and co-coach in her coaching practice. We're talking a Friday to a Wednesday here people. Badda bing, badda boom. When you know, you know, and by God we knew!
So what does all that mean?
Basically, I am working with Allison Crow at Crow Hill Conversations. She is a dynamic, energetic coach and talented graphic facilitator (which means she draws some pretty cool doodles).
What is a coach you ask?
A personal/professional coach helps people look at where they are today so that they can get where they want to be tomorrow. The thought patterns and beliefs we all hold create the experiences we have in our lives, and coaching is all about helping you become more aware so that you can be the you that you really want to be. Who doesn't want to feel lighter, more fulfilled, more loved and more loving?! It's the kind of work that sings to my heart!
So while supporting Allison in her many fabulous endeavors, I will be learning the ins and outs of the biz with intentions of launching my own practice come January 2012, a practice dedicated to GIVING VOICE TO YOUR WHISPER! My creative wheels are turning, and I'm working on a kickoff retreat in Costa Rica...the place where so much of my journey towards today began.
I have always been blessed with such great friends, and I've loved hearing the support and encouragement from my girlfriends this past week. "Well, you've always been my life coach!" is the refrain I've heard more than once, and it just really warms my giddy little soul. So thanks to all of you who have already been there for me as I follow my excitement in life yet again.... That should by one of my titles... Intern, Co-Coach and Professional Excitement Follower.
So as you can see, I have a lot to be excited about! Who just has a mentor fall in their lap like this? Me!
I attract abundance and love and obviously very interesting people! I am grateful for this new relationship and the ways that we are both going to help one another.
I am fulfilled. I am hopeful. I am excited (yes, I realize I keep using that word).
I am happy to be me!
