In Quiet Desperation


       So often, I'll start coaching a new client with the understanding that they're struggling in some aspect of their life. This is common, as I've had my share of struggles too... as most humans do. But what often amazes me, is how long we're willing to endure a troubling situation or relationship before we can admit to ourselves or another, that we're actually quite unhappy.

       Sometimes it takes a while until we wake up and either gain the clarity or the support we need to make a change. Other times, we don't know what to do, so we do nothing. We stew and fret and sweat in anxiety and agitation, feeling powerless... sometimes to the point of paralysis. Trying to check out, numb out or tune out as we secretly sigh in quiet desperation. Does this sound like you? And if so, what can you do?

    Chances are if you can sweep your skepticism aside and speak to someone skilled, you'll start to breathe easier knowing you’re not carrying the burden alone. And if you don't find that they're a right fit, look elsewhere. And if that doesn't work, keep asking, praying, envisioning, speaking and seeking. And then... trust. 

    Trust that somehow, someone somewhere will show you that there is some way through to creating a better situation. And if you can open your mind and heart to the possibility, over time, you'll likely find a calmer place, a quieter space within yourself where you can be more at peace and feel happier too. It is possible. I know, because I've come a long way. And I’ve helped others get there too. And this is what I wish for you.
