COVID brought a myriad of problems to our lives. We could spend days talking about the negative effects of the pandemic. One positive side effect I noticed and took advantage of, however, was time. While my days felt like I had less time because my kids were home all day, I gained a new mental space that was previously reserved for social outings, travel, and any other (albeit fun) extracurricular activities. Once we binged watched all the shows, drank all the wine, and realized COVID was here to stay, I started observing my life. What was really important? How was I raising my kids in this ever changing world? What were the values I wanted to instill in them? In a world where all the superficial things faded and only the basic things in life were of value, was I really happy? Not as happy as I’d like to be. And while I’ve always been in tune with my mental health and understood that I should probably feel happier, I had also always been too distracted by the busy life I was leading to focus on actually becoming happier.
I took this time of less distractions to actually do what is commonly referred to as “the work”. I turned to books and podcasts about mental health. I hired a therapist and finally committed real time and energy into feeling happier. And the results have been REMARKABLE. I’m the happiest, truest version of myself yet! I’m so empowered by this transformation that I’ve turned my passion into coaching so I can help others feel as good as I do. I’m currently in a certification program through Inner Glow Circle and will be recognized as a Certified Coach with the International Coaching Federation.
