Hey I’m not blogged for a few weeks! Hope you’re all well and happy :) I’ve been busy with my Daring Damsels!
I ran my first workshop at the end of January. It was a ladies self esteem booster workshop and we all had a great time. It was wonderful to see these ladies who arrived as strangers leave as friends. They really played full out, listened carefully, and shared their own experiences freely. They explored their own patterns of behaviour and committed to themselves a decision to change.
A week on, I am so impressed to hear of their progress. Listening to their own self talk and choosing to change it, to focus on what they are want – not on what they don’t want, thinking about how they are seeing the world – through their ‘filters’, questioning their beliefs – which are not true and not serving them and replacing them with more empowering beliefs… it’s all great stuff! And, I’m so proud of them all!
Isn’t amazing how we think it’s ‘just me’ and yet it can be really liberating to find that others feel the same way – and together we can embark on making change happen so you can live a more fabulous and fulfilling life?
I met a lady a few months ago at a conference with some amazing women speakers. She said to me “‘it’s all right for them, but I’m in my 50’s and my self esteem is low… I’m too old to change”. I had to question this and she didn’t want to change. And that’s ok. It’s her choice. However, I think we need to consider if we feel we are not living the life we’d really like – it’s down to us to make the change. After all, what has low self esteem cost us in the past, how will it continue to shrink our choices? I know from my own experience I’ve missed out on many opportunities because I didn’t know if I could handle the situations or questioned my own abilities – and talked my self out of them.
It’s not a very positive way to live, is it?
So these fabulous ladies who came to my Daring Damsels workshop were just so ready to get out of their own way, smash down their own barriers and begin living life again. The journey of change isn’t easy, we have well trodden paths. If we truly want to make the change we can do it, no matter what our age – it just takes a shift in thought! The rewards are waiting – and they are fabulous!
I’m going to be coaching these ladies on a one to one basis and arranging further workshops – if you would like to find out how I can help you too, please message me through my web site www.daringdamsels.com Come on ladies – let’s make 2010 our best year ever.
Here is a message from one of the ladies who was there.
