I have been a serial hustler and perfectionist, looking like the majority of people, for something outside of me to help me feel fulfilled, inspired and alive.
I spent 12 years in a career that didn’t set me alight.
I called off a wedding a long time ago. I moved abroad.
I have continually aimed to better myself in one way or another and I have always been on a mission to help myself feel as good as I can.
Having these characteristics hasn't been a bad thing because I have been lucky enough to create a wonderful marriage, which I realise is generally so easy that it often slips my mind. I have also followed my intuition a lot about my work, often letting go of things where I felt stifled, uninspired or that something was lacking. I am now blessed to do work that I love and more importantly work with inspiring, beautiful people.
I came to realise over time that our happiness and fulfilment is often short-lived or momentary. It can change in a second like it did for me when I suffered a bad accident at the age of 44 years. My accident fundamentally changed the way I had to live my life. It also led to a complete overhaul in the way I viewed life. It became very clear to me how much my mind wanted to stay in a place of fear and future anxiety and this was not a place I wanted to hang around in.
This is what our mind does. It always likes to find something to criticise or to find disappointing or frustrating. It loves to get us to compare or doubt ourselves and left to its own devices this can be quite destructive.
Of course you can argue that the ups and downs are a part of everyday life as a human and there is truth in this. However, our mind is trained to continually see the world in terms of likes and dislikes hence all of the chasing and waiting, for that special person, the promotion, the bigger house, the next goal. This only ever encourages us to search outside of ourselves for our happiness and as long as we look outside of ourselves for fulfilment, we will always end up feeling like there is something missing and fail to enjoy the magic of life in every moment.
When I started to really 'get' the idea that we must seek our own fulfilment from inside first, rather than just know it on an intellectual level, my whole way of living changed and I changed. It was a huge relief to stop feeling like I had to chase and live in some future place that may not ever happen. It was also a huge relief to realise that I didn't have to buy into what my mind was saying but I could trust myself enough to let everything unfold in front of me and remain unattached to a particular outcome.
This is of course is an ongoing journey for me and one that I would love to accompany you on if you feel so inclined. The added bonus being that your career, your relationship, your health or whichever part of your life feels a bit sad right now, may transform beyond belief, although I am not going to make false promises because everything has to come from inside of you.
I would be honoured to be your guide.
