I’m in transition from a previous life into a new one. I have read about the liminal space, where you are between something old and something new.
I spent decades in the oil and gas industry helping teams and leaders become more effective and reach their goals. In 2017, I decided to shift my business to leadership coaching. I started the coaching program at Rice University in January 2018. I loved practicing those deep listening skills. I felt that I was in the right place.
Where am I today? I’ve been coaching a bit but most of my time has been taking care of family. Since 2018, I’ve dealt with serious family illness, lost two pets, buried my mother, and now my 91 year old father is in declining health.
My husband recently retired and this brings new adventures. When he decided to retire, we weren’t in a pandemic. We’re both 57 and fortunate that we can retire now. We had planned to be traveling all summer, but now we’re trying to keep busy and plan our future.
Anyway, I’m trying to lean into this transition as I imagine what’s next. I’m always learning and working on nutrition, wellness and fitness topics. I picked up some weighted jump ropes a couples months ago. It’s fun but a challenge! I’m on a journey to improve my jump rope skills. More on that later!
My hope is that someone will benefit from what I share in this blog. Come join me!
