What's your story?

What's your story?

The stories we tell ourselves have a tendency to shape everything we experience. They influence how we view things, how we feel about the world around us and are the lens through which life takes shape. Understanding your own story - and through coaching, perhaps altering how you tell it - is a powerful tool to make use of.

I’ve decided to tell my own story in this blog post, to help illustrate this. Grab and brew and put your feet up - it’s a longer-than-usual read…! Once you’ve reached the end of my tale I’d really encourage you to write your own. My suggestions for how to do this are at the bottom. Enjoy!

What do you mean life doesn’t revolve around your kids…?

I have always believed that whilst my kids are very much an integral part of my life, they are not actually the sole reason for my existence or my happiness. Let me be clear; I love my children wholeheartedly (and would throw myself to the lions rather than see them eaten - obvs) but what brings me satisfaction, fulfilment and outright joy is not limited to them alone. I understand that this isn’t a belief shared by everyone, and that is completely fine. We’re all different.
