Today I made the decision to walk away from my career of 25+ years. I’ve been thinking about doing this for a long time. The prospect has always terrified me. I was at the top of my game. I reached my goals. I made good money. I was comfortable. And maybe that was part of the problem? It also didn’t help that my career enabled my addiction. It threatens my sobriety on a daily basis and keeping my sobriety is a top priority. Is that extreme? No. The SA white-book says that we have to be willing to go to any length to gain sobriety. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Well, I’m willing. So what now? I have a few ideas. Ultimately I’m putting this in the hands of my higher power. He knows what I need and I believe that He’ll provide. That said, this hasn’t been easy. It was one thing to consider doing this for the last couple of years, quite another to actually go through with it. I’ve taken a giant step into the dark and am exercising faith in God like I never have before. I feel excitement and freedom like I haven’t in many years. Fear is still there too but how will I learn what God has in mind for me if I don’t give him the chance to show me? In the immortal words of Andy Dufresne; “I guess it comes down to a simple choice really. Get busy livin’, or get busy dyin’.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👱🏼♂️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #latterdayaddict#pornkillslove#fightthenewdrug#marriage#filmquotes#lds#careerchange#faith#addiction#fear
WHAT’s YOUR STORY? 📖 This is not NECESSARILY the story of what job you do Its the story of who you ARE Maybe you do define yourself by your job But EQUALLY maybe you don’t Either way, that’s okay So , What do you do? This question is often asked when we meet someone for the first time. As an ICE BREAKER question If you think about this question a little bit more your RESPONSE could maybe be a bit different For instance perhaps you LOVE walking in nature and feeling the EARTH 🌏 BENEATH your feet 👣 so your response could be. I try and connect with nature as much as possible Other responses to this questions could be; I love to hangout with like MINDED people I do YOGA 🧘♀️ I go SURFING 🏄🏻♀️ There is nothing wrong if your response is about what you do at work. But is it really You or just a small part? How would you really like to DEFINE yourself 🙏🏻🙏🏻
What's your word for the year?⠀ ⠀ For me this year it's INTENTIONAL.⠀ I'm going to be intentional with how I spend my time and be present in each moment, when in the past I have felt all over the place. That means being intentional in my relationships, my health & fitness, and building my business.⠀ ⠀ I'm curious, what's your word?

It's hard to change by yourself! I am so blessed to have a built-in support system who have similar goals and push me to do my best daily! One of the reasons I love my accountability group: its the closest thing to someone slapping the cupcake out of my hand! If you'd like to join us drop your favorite emoji below.
I worked my butt off for 10 years as a school counselor. I literally gave everything I had and then some. One of the reasons that this Instagram page is so important to me is because my hope is that it will be a healing journey for me as well as be a change agent and support for others. I had so many thoughts and feelings stuffed inside about things that were not right or could be done different to benefit everyone, but had no time or energy to do much other than my daily job. I had over 600 students and just one of me. This journey is one of healing mentally and physically. 🙏 I do want to say that this job of a school counselor is a bit ridiculous. I loved my students, but this role of school counselor is the most ambiguous job there is in a school. It literally encompasses anything and everything. While the variety is nice, what isn't nice is being expected to do anything and everything. There are no parameters. More on that another time. But seriously, it's an impossible role. No matter how hard you try, it is never enough. Not because you didn't help a student, because we all know that you did, but because all the adults in the building think you should be working miracles. I don't think anyone else is looked at to perform miracles on a daily basis. It's a hard job. It's a wonderful job. It's not right for me anymore, at least for now.
A bit later than most but wanted to make the most of being away by not being on social media while I was away holiday! So here it is my #10yearchallenge 10 years for me marks so many things. It’s 10 years since I .... - Turned 18 - Finished my A - levels - Started my first full time job after school - Ten years on and I am still at the same employer - Have been promoted twice - Have now started a new project manager role - Focused on my fitness - Finished my first running race for Race for Life! - Qualified as a beautician - Am now a mother to my love, my life, my everything, my daughter ❤️ This 10 challenge has made me realise how much I have achieved in this time and am so grateful for all the opportunities that have come my way, good or bad it’s got me to where I am today and made me the person I am now! It doesn’t matter what life throws at you, only you can determine the next chapter.. I look forward to what the next 10 years brings .... #achievegreatness#motivation#inspiration#love#10years#career#lifechoices#singlemum#mummyanddaughter#life#job#newjob#careerchange#workingmum#parttime#myworld🌎 #mylove❤️ #daughter#bepositive#fitmum @evansjennyfer

2018 was a year of personal re-evaluation and growth for me, especially when it comes to my career. 🌿 I decided to become a health coach because I wanted to use my medical knowledge to focus on wellness, rather than illness; health, rather than disease. I wanted to be part of the revolution to stop chronic disease in its tracks, empower people to make healthy choices about their diet and lifestyle, and really make a difference. 🌿 I’ve struggled with chronic health issues most of my life - pain, anxiety, inflammation, and autoimmune disease. I’ve worked hard on diet and mindfulness, making changes to my life in small and significant ways, eliminating stress and finding more joy. And I would love to help you do the same. 🌿 I have a goal to help more people with mindful eating this year than ever before.... so I’m running a New Year’s special and have 5 spots open for a free "Ditch The Diet and Feel Your Best" Discovery Session. If you’re interested, you can schedule a consult with me by clicking here: calendly.com/wildlilacwellness 🌿 Thank you all for your support! 🌿 If you know of anyone who struggles with finding the right food to eat without overwhelm, feel free to share this post with them. 💜
I feel like I’ve been posting aimlessly on here or not really that much the last few days, and it’s because I’ve been struggling with everything. I’m often very good at picking myself up when I’m feeling a bit down, but I’ve been stuck for the last few days and I can’t seem to shake it off 😩 . I’m hoping an early night and a long run tomorrow morning will help me feel better, along with some journaling and spending some time refocusing on my goals 🙌🏻 I need to change the way I’ve been thinking the last few days because my goals are achievable if I believe they are and put in the work!!! 💭 How are you spending your Saturday evening?? Let me know in the comments ⬇️⬇️ I’ll be sleeping 😴

🛑Why You Need To Stop Trying To Make It Work With “Free Training” And Hire A Coach Already🛑 . Who’s guilty of trying to achieve massive results by collecting all the freebies they can get their hands on? Free ebooks? Free web trainings? . Guilty as charged 🙋🏻♀️ . I’ve tried ALL of the freebies and all I got was an inbox full of junk mail! . I finally came to the realization that by NOT having a coach I was losing out on time and potential money I could’ve been making . Only after hiring my first coach was I able to make leaps and bounds for not only my business but for myself as well . For those that aren’t sure what a coach can do . 🌺 We help you get crystal clear on your REAL desires and set realistic goals based on them . 🌺 We help you formulate a strategy that includes plans for you to take action on NOW . 🌺 We hold you accountable for YOUR success to create lasting results . 🌺 We help you discover your strengths and propel you into YOUR spotlight to SHINE . 🌺 We call you out on your BS (blindspots) when you start to avoid progress . 🌺 We help you uncover hidden trauma, negative beliefs and work with you to get over them once and for all . 🌺 We are the ear that listens and the shoulder to lean on . 🌺 We will dust you off if ever you should fall . 🌺 We are your biggest cheerleaders and will help you celebrate every single milestone .

I know you feel like banging your head against a wall because you’re utterly exhausted from working extra long hours & your heart aches because you never get to spend quality time with your kids . You’re stretched so thin & you think that if you could squeeze in just a few more hours of work you could get it all done & not have to rely on the duds you already have working with you . But here’s where you are dead wrong . What you REALLY need to do is: . Get crystal clear on your goals & expectations to create solid training plans so you can properly train & build confidence in your team . Create a positive environment with emphasis on building synergy . Get to know your team & identify their strengths that you can help grow . Once you create these shifts you can rest assured your team is performing effectively without having to micro-manage . Your family, body, sanity & soul will thank you a thousand times for this 💗💗💗
