When Life Gets Hard

I have made this commitment to writing here – in my blog – twice a week.  In the first post of the week – I’ll write about my progress with food and my weight.  In my second post – I’ll write a coaching piece – something to inspire action.  

Well – this has been a challenging week for me.  About midweek I got some news that pulled the rug out from under me, so to speak.  And I’m still reeling.  And I’m wondering – how can I write something inspiring from this place?  I don’t feel – well much of anything even now.  So that is what I’m going to write about.  What do when this happens.

I believe we are all designed for, made to do certain things.  One of the big challenges is figuring out what that is.  The next challenge is once you know – actually doing it.  And what do you do when other circumstances intervene to destabilize you? 

You keep going.  You remember – this is what I am meant to do, this is MY path.  The challenges, the saddening or destabilizing experiences don’t CHANGE that.  So for today – I may feel sad, a bit out of control, but I can still take action toward the things I am built to do.  I know  my goals.  I know what I am working toward.  I know who I am.  None of that is changed – it is just more difficult right now.  But I can take another step, and another step.  I can keep going.  And that will lead me to a place of stability once again.  I can’t control everything, but I can make those choices.  I can take just one more step.

Client Stories

At the time I hired Lori, I was looking for someone to help me develop a resume which focuses on career transitions.  I had hired a coach who did not hear a word I said and sent me a resume that was totally wrong.  Lori, on the other hand, did listen to what my needs were and asked me pointed questions.  I decided to work with her and never regretted this decision. Lori helped develop two resumes which highlighted skills needed for two different types of positions.  She was easy to work with, took all my comments into consideration, and made the appropriate revisions.  In the end, I received two resumes which I was totally happy with.  I would recommend Lori without hesitation.  She is a true professional and a delight to work with.
