In 1987 if you have told me that I would leave my secure 18-year management career when I was a single partner, AND become an entrepreneur while participating in the birth of the profession of coaching, AND become the 1st Master Certified Coach in the world, AND publish numerous coaching books and articles, I would have had you committed.
Yet that is exactly what I did and if you look at my face you can see the evidence.
Each wrinkle, and I am proud of every one, represents the quality of my life made visible, a snapshop that discloses for all to see how I engage my destiny, smile wrinkles being the most prominent. Wrinkles on my face represent a resume of my values: integrity, fun, creativity and service. My facial curves and lines divulge my magical journey to uncover spirituality and learn how to live my life purpose. Look closely and you will unveil the lessons I am learning from my husband, my son and grandson. Read the wisdom in my wrinkles. My face is my favorite book. When asked the key to my happy life, I reply with a twinkle in my eye: Know your life purpose, share contagious enthusiasm, be inspiring, and focus while simply living it UP and remember to honor your wrinkle wisdom!
“To inspire personal and spiritual growth, to share creative ideas, and to connect meaningfully from the heart.”I enjoy weaving this “Life Purpose” throughout my activities and work, like the intricate patterns in a beautiful and rich tapestry.The threads in my life have taken me on a journey through several occupations:an entrepreneur – owner of a retail business, management, director of day care centers, counselor for school systems and a mental health center, author of several books, and now personal and executive Master Certified Coach, as well as coach trainer for accredited schools and a university.
With gratitude and delight, I love helping others to make meaningful connections, engaging the heart so they, too, can build bridges of transition.A perennial symbol for me is the Chambered Nautilus, both visually in the image of the expanding spiral of the seaside shell, and in the poem by Oliver Wendall Holmes, encouraging us to “build thee more stately mansions O my Soul.”
My invitation to you is to play with me through this upward spiral toward freedom of spirit.
