What a glorious time of year—the first hints of spring after a frigid winter wrapped in white. For my husband and me it means only visiting the gym for the occasional rainy day now, going back outside and hitting the roads for our morning run. The earthy smell of wet mud, the sweet songs of the returning birds, the clear baby blue skies and warm sun—it’s so energizing!
And just like the baby sprouts preparing underground for their debut this spring, we have had the time to go still and quiet in preparation for our next growth spurt. Sometimes under mounds of snow it feels as though we will never have the opportunity to break through and flower. What will it take for that to happen?
I have recently switched my coaching focus to those in mid-life who feel dissatisfied and are ready for more meaningful work, to finally live the life they choose, but feel burdened by what seems like insurmountable responsibilities that put them last on their list as always.
I have discovered that coaching men and women in this middle passage is so rewarding—with their lifetime of wisdom and experience they are ready to delve deep and explore how they can create a rich, satisfying second half of life. And like the spring bud, burst forth in colorful glory.
If this is you, or you know someone who is on the threshold of the middle passage, give me a call. I can help you navigate and reconnect to the grateful excitement of being alive and embrace the wondrous beauty of this life we are so lucky to be living.
“The long day wanes: the slow moon climbs, the deep
Moans round with many voices. Come, my friends,
‘Tis not too late to seek a new world.”
Alfred Lord Tennyson
