Although coaching never crossed my mind, a beautiful friend showed me the benefits of it.
At first I thought, “OK, what can it hurt to try something new?” I was feeling burdened without realizing what was causing it. Then, after a routine physical, I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. This really shocked my body and my mind. It wasn’t until a few sessions that I realized it wasn’t the disease that was making me feel down and out, it was my thinking. I felt dread and wondered, “Great, is this what my life is going to be like?” I now realize I don’t have to live worrying about labels; I have the power to change it myself. I still have to monitor my sugars, but if I watch what I eat, I’m still not taking any meds.
My thinking has changed since Nada has been in my life as well. I now realize negativity only weighs you down. I was letting small family issues change my entire life (which, after going through a tremendously tragic experience, I realized how small the issue really is/was!) The way I saw people, the way I became sour and bitter, the time I wasted feeling that way – it was just toxic for me, my family, and my friends.
We are now trudging through waters so deep and murky I feel I would have drowned had I not gone through life coaching with Nada. I sometimes feel the deep waters pulling me under along with my family, but I guess that’s why they call it “Life Coaching!” I know I can call Nada anytime to throw me a line and get my head above water.
