Grabbing Life By The Lemons

My mother-in-law narrowly escaped death last week and things have been wicked hard. The kind of hard that makes you gain new perspective and understand song lyrics or book quotes that went over your head before. Dickens’ prose “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times,” keeps swirling in my mind. Suddenly, famous words from A Tale of Two Cities accurately describes my life.

I’m getting comfortable with being both ridiculously happy and excited about some things, while also processing deep grief and anxiety. Allowing and processing two contrasting feeling states is not for wimps, I promise you.

A delicious life doesn’t mean that everything is perfect. Life isn’t always 100% solid. You might have a great family life, but your job is sucking your soul. Or maybe you feel like you have everything all wrapped except the debtors that keep calling. Perhaps your kids are happy and healthy, you are at the peak of your career, and yet your husband is walking out—with a younger woman. Life, quite simply, is messy. And we can learn to love the mess and clean it up, or wallow in it and stay stuck.

I think this is my next phase for Life Is Delicious. I’m documenting and developing coaching tools to address the question: How do you rock out a delicious life, even when the shit hits the fan? My working title is: Life Is Delicious: A Place to Fall Apart So That You Can Build It Back Up. I’ll keep you posted.

I’ll tell you now that having a community of support is one of the ways that I have kept my sanity. Creating community is one of my passions. Clear Coaches is a community that I have created for Life Coaches who are building profitable businesses. Check out what my latest coaches created below. I am so proud of the positive impact they are making in the world!

PS. My mother in law has bounced back, rather suddenly. She’s off the vent and back in the rehab wing!

I know first-hand the pressures of living in the shadow of a professional athlete. It’s easy to lose touch with what matters to you and to find yourself living a life that doesn’t resemble the one that you imagined.

I work with wives of professional athletes to help them find peace in world where nothing is certain. Together we can explore the frustration and loneliness that occurs in a life where everyone thinks you have it all. As your coach, we can work together to define your goals and dreams in game that has you focused on someone else as the priority.
