I don’t know what I would do without Coach. For a year and a half, he has been pushing me daily to build my strength and confidence, and I am evolving from a whiney spineless girl into a full-fledged badass. When someone gives you positive affirmations regularly for that long, you start to believe it even if you aren’t quite sure of the supporting facts.
Every once in awhile, I have a slip-up, and he is there to patiently remind me about what’s worth my time and what isn’t. All that matters is now, he says. And he couldn’t be more right.
I’m not sure how he got so smart without watching Oprah or stocking up on all the latest self-help books, but he always says just the right thing. It’s like he’s my own personal angel/bodyguard who was sent to protect me from myself and set me straight.
All that matters is now – not the years I spent in a broken marriage. I didn’t waste my time. I learned so much about myself and about the world, and every event led me, with perfect timing, to today.
All the matters is now – not retirement or the vacations of tomorrow that I may or may not take.
I am happy. And that’s all I’ve ever really wanted. It’s here, now. I don’t have to pull up a memory or fantasize about the unknown future. I’m living it. Front and center. I just need to show up with the freckles on my face and an open heart.
