The Storm Will Pass

Yesterday I drove on the PCH in silence. The ocean was to my right. The lagoon was to my left. Blue skies above. Totally at peace. It was one of those serene, aha, everything makes sense kind of moments.

I’d just finished my final session with my life coach. We’d been working together for 3 months and our work together had come to a close.

It’s no secret that the past few months had been particularly rough for me, which as a coach, is a scary thing to talk about. Shouldn’t us coaches have it all figured out? Well, no, I don’t think that’s how it works. In fact, I think our ability to go through the messy stuff in life only makes us fuller and better able to serve.

The truth is, nobody has it all together 100% of the time. We’re human. We’re messy. We’re learning and we’re growing and we’re doing the best that we can with the tools that we’ve been given. The more we experience, the more tools we have. That’s kind of how it works.

After a particularly difficult ending to a relationship and a decision to change the direction of my career, I felt stuck and sad and lost. The overwhelming anxiety I felt and the inordinate amount of tears I’d cried laying on my bedroom floor started to seem a bit abnormal.

So, I got myself some support.

Well, I finally feel out of the storm now. And, of course there will be more storms in life. The weather is unpredictable, after all, just like life. But, like all storms do, they pass. For the next one, we’ll have more tools to stay dry.

But, back to the point. During my transcendent driving moment where my entire life flashed before my eyes, I got something on a deep level I never had before.

Call it God, call it intuition, call it inner knowing, call it wisdom, call it grace, call it something bigger, call it a cool thought, call it whatever you want. This is what I heard…

You are in the perfect spot right now.
Everything that’s happened has brought you here.
It is perfect.
Look how far you’ve come.
Everything that you’ve done in your life has lead you to this moment.
And it’s perfect.
Every decision you’ve ever made has taken you to this place.
And it’s perfect.
Even if it’s felt like you’ve made mistakes along the way, there were no mistakes, just lessons you needed to learn to get here.
And it is perfect.
Even when you’ve felt lost or broken or doubtful or weak, you are here.
And it is perfect.
Everything you’ve been through has been for a reason.
It all makes sense now, doesn’t it?
Every step of the way has been worth it.
It’s all part of your unique journey.
You’ve done the right thing.
You’re doing the right thing.
You will always do the right thing.
There are no wrong choices.
There are just choices.
You are safe.
You know the way.
You’ve always known the way and you always will.
Trust in that.
Believe in that.
Don’t worry about the future.
You will be fine.
You will be more than fine.
Everything will continue to unfold perfectly.
You are okay.
You will always be okay.
I am with you. 

So, I share this with you because I want you to have it. I want you to keep it close to your heart.

If you feel like you are having a rough day or you feel lost or broken or beaten down or that you are in the thick of a storm, I want you to read this and know that you will get through it. You are in the perfect spot, and even if it doesn’t make sense yet, it will.

It’s all part of your big, bold, happy and fulfilling life.
