Being Human

There are mornings as I wake up before I jump out of bed and enter my active day that I reflect on my function as a coach. I feel this sense of wonderfully light energy wash over me. How honoured I am to be in such close proximity to people's hearts and souls. Masks are left behind as people let down any image or role that may drive them through the rest of their day (at least when we first start on the coaching path together).  

And I hear it all.  The suffering.  The joy.  The yearning.  The satisfaction.  The stretching to a new place. The contracting to the familiar.  The range of being human.  Blessedly human.

Does life get any better?  I love the realness that I get to witness and so appreciate the courage and openness that I get to be part of as I do work that only feels like deeply connecting with another soul on this earth.  I love my clients and today express that love and appreciation in my writing with a grateful and full heart.


Life can be difficult at times AND I am blessed.  To be able to witness all aspects of being human in those who are around me stretches my heart.  I accept ALL in myself and in others.
