Life Coach. Apply Within

I need a change.  Gotta change it up a bit.  Neeeeeeed to change it up a bit.  Perhaps this is a bit of a mid-life crisis.  Although as a social worker I object to the word "crisis" because in no way is this an emergent situation that needs immediate attention or requires any kind of freak out.  As if I would ever freak out.  Maybe that's the change I need to make.  Just start freaking out every few days?  Nah.  Not my style. 

But this is a mid-life thing. I don't think I realized it at first but this thing.....perhaps I will call it a re-evaluation period....because that is more my speed......anyway, this thing that is upon me is appearing as I cross over into my late 30's.  Coincidence?  Maybe.  It's now or never. Ok.  Again, "never" might be overstating it a bit.  But the now part is completely accurate. Why not now?  So I'm reaching my late 30's and I am reevaluating.  Nothing major.  I'm not about to leave my husband and children, buy a Ferrari, and move to California.  I'm not going to quit my job (right now) or dye my hair red.  It's more about self improvement.  It's about positive and healthy change.  Physically, mentally, spiritually. 

I want to be better.  Well, let's be honest. I want to be the best as that is my competitive nature but there is no such thing as the "best" person.  And in my quest to be the best I am ending up in utter failure.  So I really just want to be better.  Even a little bit better than I am right now.  But I'm doing a horrible job at managing life these days.  Sooooo.....

I'm made the executive decision that I need a life coach.  I am accepting applications.  I won't be listing qualifications because I am open to assessing all applicants.  Hit me with your best shot and I'll see if it's a good fit.

I am overwhelmed in the areas in which I want to improve.  Diet, exercise, parenting, relationship, engagement in church activities, employment, budgeting.  The list goes on and on.  I need guidance and structure and someone to hold me accountable.  I know that "they" (whoever the heck "they" are) say to make changes one at a time.  Pfooey! 

I respond well to coaching.  I was coached for a good bit of my life.  And I would like to assume that this life coach thing will not involve anyone throwing gym equipment, screaming obscenities at me, weighing me, or making me feel worthless for poor performance.  Although I have survived all of that so honestly I think I could take it. 

So I need a life coach.  I need change. I need improvement.  Maybe there's an app for that.
