Having dual thoughts about your daily activities?
Last week I got a phone call.
The woman who called is married with two children. She keeps telling me that she is happy in her new life. (Note: She has been living abroad for the last six months.) With a six-hour time difference, she is still able to keep in contact with her family and friends back home. At the same time, she is building a new social life which is mainly centered around the agenda of her children. She is happy, but at the same time she is unable to continue to work as she used to in her home country. She was able to make her (former) working life a successful one, but living abroad has forced her to put it on hold.
The caller doesn’t feel satisfied about that. She is missing the daily routine of going to her office to work with some of her colleagues. She is also telling me that she is not able to figure out the best course of action for work and daily activities now that she is living abroad.
On the other hand, she’s happy to not have to work outside the home as well. Accepting a job is a possibility, but she has fears about not being there for her kids, especially because her husband is often away on business. It feels good to her to be able to be around to take care of the household, the children and the eventual move (in three years). Trying to do these things and work would be a challenge when living abroad.
So, she’s missing work and she’s not missing it at all. I totally recognize this feeling. I asked her what she hoped to gain from talking to me. She told me she wants to discover what motivates her to get up every morning. Now it is time to find out what her needs in her new life are. I complimented her on taking the huge step of starting the process. That is where it all begins. From there, she can start moving forward with her own life. And so can you!
The Inner Journey wil help you to find out what motivates you to get up every morning. Would it be really just taking care of the family? Is that what you really want? Or do you feel you’ve more to give? If that’s so, it’s time to find out what else you would like to do! Do you know what is important to you, in the life you live now….

Issues can grow unnecessarily big if you don’t give them a little time and reflection. My caller told me she wants a coach to guide her through her conflicting thoughts about her daily activities. She started the Inner Journey program, becoming more aware of her needs, her role in life, her being happy and fulfilled.
