My Journey - so far

Life Changes.  You can adapt, reflect, shift your goals, change your mindset and hopefully, reinvent yourself.  This is my story.

In 2013, I had a cancer scare.  At that time, I looked into the mirror and wanted more for myself.  I found  life 2 life coaches.    I credit the shift in my mindset and my goals to these two life coaches.  Why 2?  One works in tandem with the other, both have different styles and their own businesses.  So, why not 2?

Moving into 2021, another life change happened.  I lost my best firend, my biggest supporter, the one who said "she is my life".  You never get over the loss.  The grief lessens but you still have triggers for the rest of your life.  Grief is as unique as the person who experiences it.  We all go through it differently and in different stages. I am grateful for the support I have received from friends and, quite frankly, total strangers.

Here I am in 2022.  I took a cold hard look at what I wanted for myself, again.  I worked on my mindset and here I am.  I have finally come to the decision that everything I have gone through in life has brought me to where I am today.

I decided to give up my 23+ year career in the real estate industry and go back - way back - to what I love to do - Advertising.  I made the career change without having a job to go to.  I would have never faced that fear (the fear of failure) before.  This fear has held me back for so very long.

My journey, so far, has taken me back to college.  I have entrolled in the Google Digital Marketing/ECommerce Certification Programm and will be attending Sheridan College in the fall as well.  It still scares me but I need to walk the walk in order to achieve my goals.  My journey continues... Please share your journey.  I would really love to hear from you and what you've done, or are currently doing.  I know it will inspire me and it may inspire others.
