Letting Go, Slowing Down and Moving into Semi-Retirement
The last few months have been a wild ride for me. I have been waffling between continuing the mindset for healing coaching business and letting it go.
When speaking with a friend and colleague about this, she said to me "You cannot let go of a passion, it is part of who you are. Instead of retiring, go into semi-retirement, keep the website, sell the book and see what happens."
Her words have been resounding in my head and touching my heart as I work through what I need to let go of and what I choose to keep.
Every time I sit at my computer to make changes, my heart catches in my throat. I love what I do. I am passionate about helping people empower themselves so they can go through their healing journey their way and not the way someone else chooses for them. I love that I am able to be a part of someone changing their life to be healthier and more joyful.
Over the past seven years, since I became a holistic health coach, I have had many successes. I have done many presentations, worked with lots of clients, helped people learn to laugh again, helped with stress reduction and guided others through transformations. I can also say I am an international author, an accomplishment I am very proud of.
Before we moved to Columbus, 4 1/2 years ago, I was in negotiations with a hospital system to create a holistic stress management program for the staff of all five of their hospitals. My husband got the job offer of a lifetime and we moved. Who knows what would have happened if his great opportunity had not come along. It could have been the best thing for me, or it may not have worked out. I believe there are reasons for everything that happen to us in life and it is the lessons we learn along the way that makes us who we are.
During my healing journey from the breast cancer, I spent a lot of time away from people. I learned very well how to cocoon and I really enjoyed it.
I have found it a challenge to get back into all the in-person networking I really need to do to build the business and sell the book. I don't have the energy or the drive I had before. When I go out and especially when I got to events in the evening, it takes much longer to recover my energy. I am working on how to create more.
One of the ways to do this is to cut back on the business and go into semi-retirement. This means letting go of some things, moving forward and figuring out what the next stage of my life looks like.
I am working through what I will keep and I will give up for the business. So far, I have decided to keep the website, take on less clients, do presentations if I am available and continue to sell the book.
My Facebook page, Mindset for Healing, will still be up and I will post there, on my blog and on Linkedin when I feel moved to do so.
One of the big business items I am letting go of is sending out a monthly newsletter. This will be the last one you receive from me. From now on, if you are interested in what is going on with the business, please check out my website, Facebook page, website blog or Linkedin page.
I am grateful for the support you have given me over the years and I look forward to staying connected if you choose. You can contact me through my website at https://www.tirtzahsandor.com/contact
