There’s more to life than being a passenger
For most of my life I felt lost, I felt like a hot mess.
I just kept going where life took me, doing whatever life threw my way, but without really having a plan. It felt like I was searching for something but I didn’t quite know what. I was a passenger in my own life.
And all the while, I was just going through the motions of working, paying the bills and waiting for some major awakening that I couldn’t define. I knew that something was missing, I felt an emptiness and a frustration inside, but I couldn’t quite define it. I didn’t know what I was searching for.
And then in 2008 when the recession hit, where everyone was getting laid off, where most of the world felt like doom’s day was upon us and we’d never recover, I realised that I had to find this elusive thing that I was searching for.
I had to find the purpose of my life, I had to find meaning, I had to find fulfilment. There had got to be something more to life than this. That’s when I signed up for a life coaching program. And my only purpose was to find out what was driving me, what I was missing.
It seemed quite irrational
Here I was in the middle of a recession – when money was tight – signing up for a life coaching program to find my purpose?? Seriously?? It wasn’t logical, it wasn’t rational, but I felt drawn towards it like I have never been drawn to anything before.
And in this process, of being a hot glorious mess and wondering what the heck I was doing with my life signing up for a life coaching program – that was when I found my calling. In doing the training calls, in receiving coaching myself, I was finally able to connect the dots of my life and all the odd jobs I had ever done, which were all about helping people find happiness and meaning.
I realised that everything I had done so far, had led me to that life coaching program.
“I wondered, ‘Why have I been chasing happiness my whole life when bliss was here the entire time?”
– Elizabeth Gilbert, From “Eat, Pray, Love”
And from there, though I have tried to step away from it, though I have tried other things, I keep coming back to this.
Because the joy that I get out of coaching, the joy I get out of helping other lost souls find their purpose, find meaning, find fulfilment in their every day life is priceless. I now know that this is what I am meant to do.
To help women like you, go from being a hot glorious mess to living fully and deeply with joy.
and i love making an impact
Here’s what happy clients say
I benefited from having someone to answer to, a person to kick my ass in gear when I needed it, without being too pushy, and someone to help me realise my priorities in life. I was thinking too grand and disappointing myself – I had to focus on all the smaller things leading up to the bigger picture, Victoria helped me to do that. There was no judging, she took you as she found you and helped you better yourself almost as a friend would.
It was time for a change and Victoria helped me to review what I needed to do to enable me to move on and see a different future for me workwise. She helped me to assess and get a realistic view of my capabilities. She was caring, patient and non-judgmental.
