After talking to the education office at the military base, it seems like my VA benefits or GI bill don’t cover my life coaching training. Which I guess is fine too because it’s not very expensive. I’m super excited to start next month since this feels like what I’m supposed to be doing with my life. I had a long discussion with God while I was in the shower today about the future. I am excited for what is to come. I can feel that there are so many blessings he has in store for me. A nice home, a stable career, a family… But it all starts with this first step of turning the page and entering this new chapter of my life.
There will be ups and downs, twists and turns, and I want to embrace every season of life with open arms. I know I still have a lot of things to work on before I get this opportunity to shine that bright. But I will work hard. And this time, I have the support of my family to get there.
I’ve never thought I’d have them in my life like the way I do now. I always thought that I’d be alone. So I am grateful. I talked to them face to face over video for the first time in 2 years. It was like nothing had changed. Like we picked up where we left off but in a more positive place. It was refreshing. I guess if there is one thing I can always count on, is that my parents will be the same people no matter what and are willing to let me in with open arms. Even if cutting them off was harsh, it was a necessary evil to grow.
My parents proved that they are willing to change, even if it’s a little bit at a time. I can’t push people away who are willing and wanting to change. If someone makes the effort, I can’t hold a grudge. I have moved on from my dark past and letting them in was apart of that process. And I don’t regret it. I think we can all be closer than before now that all the cards are laid out on the table.
One big inspiration to better myself lately has been listening to the Goal Digger Podcast. Jenna Kutcher has so many positive things to say not just about entrepreneurship, but about having certain mindsets for different seasons and how to go about your life when things aren’t always going right. She’s such a beautiful person and I really look to her as a role model because she speaks her truth and walks her talk. Jenna and her family are so beautiful and I can hope that I will be able to become even 50% of the amazing woman she is. If you are a woman who is considering becoming an entrepreneur yourself, I HIGHLY recommend subscribing to her podcasts and comb through her episodes because she has some great advice!
Anyways I can’t wait to start my life coach training next month. I’ll be having a business practice set up October/November and start making that independent cash. Not that there is anything wrong with getting a job or a career at an already established business, but I have always hated working for corporate America. I have always hungered and thirst for more than that. Even being in the military is hard because I enjoy doing things my way. Haha unfortunately they couldn’t break me of my civilian-ness. It’s just how I’m made and it can’t be helped. I need my independence and that is exactly why being a successful female entrepreneur is important to me.
So as I go though the motions, I’ll keep you updated on the experience.
