I have always been someone who is pretty goal orientated and likes to plan a plan!
Initially it was something that I think I did subconsciously but as my (original) career in hotel sales and marketing took off I had both personal and professional goals in place. I was competitive but inspiring (my longterm boyfriend from my teens to mid 20’s still credits me with pushing him to succeed and go “one better” each time I achieved another milestone).
My move to Australia did nothing to deter my passion for ticking things off and after arriving on a one year visa with $300 to my name, my mini down-under adventure became a 6 year life changing experience; with achieving full residency status, massage, reflexology and aromatherapy qualifications, and a short but super romantic engagement all par for the course.
My relationships were pitiful in my 30’s but I opened the first dedicated pregnancy clinic in London with a Chelsea address and became the first chosen partner to work exclusively with the private maternity unit at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. Me & My Baby was for a time, the absolute love of my life.
This year despite a badly broken foot and a very broken heart I will finish the year as a qualified yoga teacher and by Spring next year will, (I hope), have launched a brand new concept in At Home Pre and Postnatal Exercise to complement my treatments but lately I cannot sleep for wondering where my life is going and will my true goals (to love and be loved by someone amazing and have a baby) ever become my reality.
My clients lately echo many of my thoughts. Goal setting feels very last season. They’ve mainly got the man and mostly got the baby or two but there are still things that are not quite right.
Cue Danielle LaPorte. I think she is amazing. Honest yet hilarious. Completely cuckoo in her presenting style but sooo full of sense.
