STORY OF CHANGE
We all have a story of change…a sequence of events and experiences, inner and outer, which fundamentally reshape our life and can reveal our path here in the world if we pay close attention. I invite you to read my full story in a blog I wrote HERE so that you can get to know me and perhaps be inspired to reflect on your own life journey and where it is leading you.
The nutshell version of my story involves three phases of significant change in my adult life over a twenty year period of time, each phase being an expression of the interaction between the stages of leadership development, the life cycle of a professional woman, and the call of a deeper purpose for my life.
Phase 1 arrived in my early thirties when I began to shift from a mode of my identity being defined by the expectations of my environment, to a mode of exploring who I was without that external imposition. After four years of dancing in the space between these two modes, I finally accepted and embraced the reality that there was no longer a match between myself and my place of work, and it was time to break free. This was a very big deal for me at the time. What I didn’t know was that the journey had only just begun.
Fast forward to my early forties and phase 2 began to build, culminating in the perfect storm of inner and outer events, with the accompanying crisis and crash. Phase 2 was not the liberating transition of phase 1. It was tough. But through it I learned about accepting and loving myself more, listening to my inner voice, and understanding who I am and what fulfils me at a deeper level.
Phase 3 is happening right now as I enter my 50s. A crisis and crash wasn’t needed this time as I’m much better at listening to my inner world. I suspect phase 3 is about flow, collaboration, collective change, wisdom, integration, and maybe even joy!
AND WHEN I’M NOT WORKING?
I love to write, read, have stimulating connecting conversations with people about life, the universe and everything, mess about with paint and canvas, and walk in the continually changing landscape of nature. These things inspire, nourish and rejuvenate me. They support me to be my fullest potential.
I’D LOVE TO SUPPORT YOU IN EXPRESSING YOUR FULLEST POTENTIAL AS A LEADER.
DON’T DELAY. This is your one precious life on our one precious planet so get in touch now. There is work to be done.
