In March 2009, I won a drawing for one month of free life coaching.
To tell you the truth, when I entered the drawing, I had no idea what I was getting into. I kind of heard of life coaching in passing, but really did not know anything about it.
Since I had never had any counseling, I jumped at the opportunity to spill my guts to someone who would listen.
For one hour each week for one month, I met with my life coach on the telephone. One month turned into two months and two months turned into two years.
My life coach was wonderful. She listened as I talked through things and bounced ideas off of her. In the process, I drew myself out, discovered myself and began living as much as possible as the woman I am.
Life coaching may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it worked for me and I am forever indebted to the coach of my life.
