Surfing the Waves of Feelings


Surfing the waves

In the space of just 24 hours this week I attended my neighbour’s funeral and the graduation ceremony for a Masters Degree of someone close and important to me. Both were serious rituals and both were celebrations, the former marked by sadness and tears, the latter fun and laughter.

It brought home to me again that the art of being fully alive is about VALUING ALL of our feelings, EXPERIENCING them and LETTING THEM GO so we are not to be stuck in yesterday’s reality.

I was watching surfers at the beach recently. Their aim – to surf the waves; the reality – many of them spend more time in the water than on their boards.  Success – all about mounting the board again to catch the next wave. Here’s to surfing the waves of life.

Work with Passion – One to One Coaching

I encourage people to express what makes them tick and explore what they really want. Because I absolutely believe that finding a new chapter is all about clarity. Really knowing what you DO want and DON’T want takes time and patience; that’s what Work with Passion is designed to achieve.

For future available coaching dates in July and August
