Everything I Learned in May
Even a life coach has life lessons that need learning. I am always growing so welcome to a new monthly feature where I share with you everything I learned within the month!
I am trying something new! Or actually just reinventing something old. If you were a fan of my podcast, In All Honesty, you will remember I would end every episode with something I am learning at the moment. The thought behind it is that I’m always working on myself and I wanted to show you that even professionals are trying (and sometimes failing!) at improving themselves. I want to bring more of that here and I’ve always had the intention to continue to add perks to paid subscribers so now, at the end of every month you are going to get a short and snappy list of every personal growth lesson I have had that month. I think I’m going to personally also love having a record of my learnings too!

Eventually, I just launched it and realised I can just change my mind and this new feature is proof of that. I can add new things, I can take away the things that aren’t working and it’s always better to start and figure it out as you go than to delay starting because it’s not perfect yet.
I was listening to Glennon Doyle’s podcast talking to another one of my favouritesand Glennon said such a poignant sentence that it stuck with me. ‘Why does a woman have to get close to dying in order to live how they want to live?’. It made me realise that most of my biggest life changes occurred after each of my hospitalisations
