I’m a single mom who went through a divorce. I had been married for 20 years, having returned from a weekend celebration of our anniversary when my life was turned upside down. My husband had been having an affair, and this time (yes, it had happened before!), the marriage was irretrievable. Time does heal wounds, but five years later, I want to do more than just persevere. I want to come out of this on the other side with the best response (“revenge”) of all: live a good life.
I’d been through wonderful counseling prior to life coaching, and was now ready for help in creating a path to some constructive, needed changes. I was ready. However, I didn’t exactly know what I wanted out of this. It was only close to the end of the initial paperwork for life coaching that I realized what I wanted: to dream again; to see opportunities, gain fresh perspective, and find myself. After all, there was more to me than wife and mother roles. Right?
I wasn’t so sure, but as I began this process with Strahlen, my life coach, she made me feel comfortable and self-introspective as she asked key, guiding questions to help simplify my path. My repeated response often to her keen questions: “Hmm. That’s a really good question. Never thought of that.”
My best testimony for TRP is that I do dream now, and I am actually excited about whatever the future holds as I’m going forward with plans, instead of stagnating with the past or stalled in the present. I’d forgotten how much I loved riding my bike! I look forward to taking my boys camping! I’m getting that babysitter so that I can carve out some time to take walks, have a glass of wine with girlfriends, go out to eat, etc.
Here’s another best testimony: I’ve signed up for more sessions with Strahlen to now focus on healthy, active lifestyle and losing weight because I’m learning to value myself again. I want to be active and healthy because it makes me feel good and I have much more to contribute to my family. Plus, I want to wear cute clothes.
And sometimes, you just need to hear from someone (other than your mother) – that it is okay to dream, permission to value yourself, desire more, and to feel you are good enough. Strahlen helped me to rise above the fray and see my beauty in this renewal I was experiencing and it was immensely empowering.
I’d Love to Hear from YOU!
