Hello dear ones! It has been too long once again since I have written. For the past year, I signed on with a health coach, lost 50 pounds, kept it off, became a certified health coach, continued tutoring, helped multiple clients lose 30 or more pounds. I have learned a ton of things about nutrition, healthy cooking, optimal health, and changed my whole approach to how and why I eat. I have gotten rid of inflammation, resumed walking and exercising.
THEN, THEN, I realized that I had found my new voice, which has chunks of my old voice but with all kinds of healing. You see, bit by bit, I had let chunks of my soul get buried or hidden. You know how that goes, someone minimizes you or criticizes you. Then you question everything about yourself and kind of go into hiding. This is the wrong approach, isn’t it? You see, each day, I first need to begin with God. I need to consult and plan with Him. This is FAR different from first making a plan and a strategy and THEN doing a sales job to persuade God that this is the plan He should help you achieve.
As long as I am walking with Him, following the Kate-path He made for me, then my thinking and actions take on clarity, purpose, and conviction. INDEED!
So, in my health coaching, my approach is supportive, kind, educational. In my tutoring it always has been (at least on my good days). Now I have joined some networking groups to get acquainted with other folks who, as it turns out, are warm-hearted and welcoming. This is kind of a lovely and surprising thing! Do you join networking groups? Support groups? Prayer groups?
In my health coaching, some who approach me end up not choosing to join my little team. That is ok, I still offer them information to help them. My goal, ALWAYS is to help them become empowered, lift their spirits, you know, help them believe anyway. Their self-esteem and self-confidence matter to me.
This has been a life-long thread for me, really. It goes back to when I was just a little girl. I always took people under my wing, beginning with my cousins. I wast first born on both sides of my family and have 41 first cousins. It was and is a calling or a ministry even. So, as a result of my health coaching, and my tutoring, I took to posting nutrition, exercise, and recipe information on my facebook page.
Then I added another line of business that is women’s shapewear and clothing. Why? Simple. To help women feel like they look their best. I am not a fashion maven. I do have an abiding interest in helping people become and feel their best. I am wondering if you feel really, really good when you are helping others? What things do you do to help others?
I hope none of this comes across ass bragging or as an elevator pitch at all. Nope. I am letting you know that I STILL believe anyway. I still try to teach and lead by love and example.
I have missed blogging. But multi-tasking was beyond my capabilities for a number of months. Thank you for reading today. I send you love, joy, and HOPE. Remember always, despite troubling times, Believe Anyway.
