2014 has been kind of weird year for me.
Last winter (at the end of 2013/beginning of 2014) I was really down. I was stressed out over how out-of-control I felt in my life. I was in a rot – unable to see a way out, I felt stuck in a life I didn’t want and didn’t feel I could change. But I had also just started my Master coach program and slowly things started to shift.
Let me assure you – becoming a Master coach is no easy task, in fact it is the single hardest thing I have done in my life. But also the most rewarding.
As winter turned into spring, I slowly began to see that I alone was the one keeping me from what I wanted. This sounds like such a cliche, and it probably is, but as is with most cliches they have a truth in them. I realized that all these ideas I had about what I should be doing, about right and wrong – well, they weren’t really very useful. They certainly didn’t make me feel better and they kept away from the life that was happening right now.
I wouldn’t say I regained control of my life – it was more like the other way around. I started to let go. This made room for some new opportunities. It started with a trip to Vietnam, but as you probably know by now, it ended up with something I could have only dreamed of one year ago (and often did, by the way)
One thing I would like to state very clearly, and something that might have been The Lesson for me this year, is that I could not have and did not accomplish any of the things I have this year alone. I have been overwhelmed with the love and kindness from friends and family I and we have been shown this year. It might sound stupid but just one year ago I didn’t know that 1. I can not do everything by myself and 2. What I do alone will never be half as good as what I do with others.
So thank you to everyone who has been kind, helpful, thoughtful, pushy, annoyingly right, understanding and everything in between. It made a difference. Jonas of course is the person who deserves most of the credit. I have not been an easy girlfriend to have this year, but I believe I have become a better one.
I can’t even begin to imagine what 2015 will be like for us, but I am pretty sure it will be a year to remember.
Happy New year!
