Pain, the Powerful Teacher

Hi readers,

I’ll be honest and tell you - I almost quit on this mission…

After the money, time, and energy spent on coaching, the website, and blogging – I found myself embarrassed to tell people I was burned out both emotionally and physically.

Around May, I pulled my hamstring for the second time, which meant I could not pole dance, one of my biggest passions and outlets for stress.  Work became super busy with training 13 people, and I finished up with 4 coaching clients.  I had got them to a good place but did not feel I had done a good enough job (hello perfectionism and gremlin).  I proceeded to beat myself up and EAT my feelings...  I found all I wanted to do was to lie in bed in misery… and oh yeah, I beat myself up for that too.

On making hard decisions - Why I denied graduate school

Growing up, I was one of those nice, good, smart kids, who obeyed all the rules and whose sole purpose in life was to get good grades, have a stacked resume, get into college, and live happily ever after. Essentially, I got pretty DAMN good at meeting everyone’s expectations. There was always someone above or ahead of me giving me structure - setting the schedule, pace, and goals to be met. There was always someone there to give me feedback on how well I was doing.
