#1 I set up and part catered a friends wedding on very short notice
#2 I BOUGHT MY SON A PUPPY, SOMETHING WHICH I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD COMMIT TO
#3 TOOK KYRAN TO ADELAIDE 500 ON OUR OWN, PFFFT WHO HATES CROWDS????
#4 WENT TO MY FIRST BARS WORKSHOP AND ADDED A NEW ELEMENT TO MY BUSINESS, WENT TO TWO MORE THROUGH THE YEAR PLUS AN ENERGETIC FACE LIFT WORKSHOP
#5 posted photos of me on facebook without taking 20 practice shots and without stressing about what they looked like because for the first time I actually like myself enough to think it was ok
#6 attended Real entreprenuer mums meetings and didn’t completely freak out, I even stood up and did the 2 minute spiel on my business, wow I sounded like a business owner – sort of
#8 Hypnosis training with Toni oh wow, big shifts, felt like I was the only one with baggage but did my best and loved it another new element to my business
#9 Attended Michelle Jewels-Parsons book launch – was the first time I went to something and wasn’t panicking on the way about what people would think of me, I had fun and I was myself and I cheekily got discounted photos for myself and Sue from head shots
#10 Went back to work at TWCCC for one day a week, this was a big step for me, took a lot of courage and self-belief to walk back into the place and to back myself as a person and educator
#11 Became a reiki master – finally thought I deserved it, and I have loved every session I have given since, can’t wait to level up my reiki business and share the healing vibes
#12 Showed up to more weekly coaching calls than I missed, and boy sometimes I just wanted to crawl into a hole and hide, lots of impostor syndrome shit to let go of each week
#13 signed up for the psychic fair and much to my surprise actually went, not only that I spoke! as a speaker! at the psychic fair! not sure I’ll do that shit again, but I did it
#14 I got paying clients and they got results!! I mean holy FUCK you guys, who knew I could actually help real people and get paid for it
#15 I wrote a blog for SA Woman and more than one person read it
#16 upheld my boundaries with a guy who didn’t see my worth and was able to let go of others who also didn’t see my worth, guess that means I finally see my worth
#17 Video post and facebook live – yep I did both, Jodie is a taskmaster that’s for sure and for some reason I don’t want to let her down, I did them and no one died so guess me on video isn’t the end of the world
#18 did an online 4 week meditation live series – I know right? WTF how did I do that? seems I let go of fear somewhere along the way
#19 NLP practitioners course – umm tough ✅ confronting ✅ tears ✅ times I didn’t want to show up ✅ old failure shit come up ✅ got through it ✅ passed the test ✅ made some friends ✅ broke through some limiting beliefs ✅
#20 said goodbye to some friends that decided that talking about me was easier then talking to me, friends that decided that i wasn’t as important to them as their ego, friends that decided that it was easier to say goodbye then tell the truth, friends that decided that my growth and change didn’t match with where they wanted to stay.
#21 met some amazing new women! women who inspire me and believe in me like no one ever has before, made friends and allies and found a place to belong even while I’m still working out who I really am.
#22 discovered that there is more to me than the fear that held me back. that I’m not the fucked up, cold hearted bitch that people accuse me of being.
#23 found the courage to reach out and speak to someone when I felt more alone than ever. Found out that there is someone who will support me and who understands me without judgement
#24 discovered that I am not a fraud, I am kind, loving, supportive, generous, healthy, growing, learning and brave coach, mum, friend, teacher, sister, daughter and woman and that is the real me. The other person the manipulative, scared, lying, lazy, excuse making, mean, avoiding, angry person is not me, is not who I really am, she might have made appearances but she is not me anymore.
#25 The old chapter has finished and the new chapter of my life is Lucy and the amazing growth minded coach. Fully in love with life and herself – how does it get any better than that?
Ok so I know I went over 20, but that’s OK, because I feel like I could have added more, like sending emails from mail chimp and setting up calendly, and getting a referral client and getting a repeat client, and sending messages to people on Facebook that I have never met, getting a client space set up in my room, printing flyers, magnets for my car and a sign for my front fence, but how long is a list really??? plus you know I got emotional toward the end
