December 9 ♥ Every Exit Line Is an Entry

I have been involved in an extraordinary course called, What Do You Want?” over the past two months, with the goal of defining my Big Picture Wants. What I have discovered is what truly matters most to me; the things that make my life juicy, enlivening and deeply satisfying.

And along the way I have come to realize that it’s time for me to embark on a new stage in my life – of offering service to others but a in different way. So as this year ends I am phasing out my coaching business.

theres a trick to the graceful exitYou may be wondering why.

I am simply feeling a need to find space and regroup my energies for the next chapter of my life. I have been feeling a palpable pull from the many opportunities to learn and explore. I want to make more time for activities that ignite my soul.

And I know that the clock is ticking.

This thought doesn’t scare me but it does heighten my awareness that my life definitely has a “use by” date. And I intend to take full advantage of my good health and redirect my abundant energy.

I offer enormous thanks to those of you who have worked with me, steadfastly followed my blog, reclaimed your power, and shared the joys of personal growth. Knowing you are “out there” has always brought a smile to my heart. I will miss you the most.

I’ve discovered that creative writing meets so many of my Big Picture Wants. So I will continue my blog though not quite as regularly. I invite you to continue to interact with me via your comments. And, I’m seriously considering writing a book focused on my blogs over the years. So, stay tuned!

I’ll still be here and will welcome connection via email or Facebook

And now I’m going to go celebrate (you all know how big I am on celebrating.) I’ll be toasting my courage to voice what I really want and need, and to have done so gracefully.

Now it’s your turn

How do you know when it’s time to end something? What helps you to make the leap? What do you do to celebrate the changes you’ve made?

December 9 ♥ Every Exit Line Is an Entry — 4 Comments

  1. Many congratulations on your decision to explore what’s next. I have also transformed my coaching business into something that excites and inspires me every day. It really is so important to recognize when to cross that threshold and bid adieu to that lovely, comfortable old home full of joy and great memories while you happily look forward to the dream home ahead. Hooray for you!!! Thanks for the blessings your blog brought so many of us.

    • Appreciate your congrats and appreciation of my blog. I plan to continue it, although not as regularly. I love shaing my lessons and offering ways that others can grow, too. The juxtaposition of saying goodbye to the past while welcoming in the unknown new path generates all kinds of feelings. I’m working on a new “job” title that captures this next phase!

      And good luck with your transformed, reenergized coaching – woohoo for you!

  2. I really like the points you present here Robin because this is something that is pertinent in my life right now. I like the anecdote that you have shared and your courage to move on to other things is inspiring.

    This point I tell myself to assist me in my leap, or recovery in this case, is “When one door closes, another opens.” I like to reaffirm to myself that, something ended so that another and even better thing can replace it. I often forget this but it really is true in most cases.

    Great article and it is nice to see your perspective on the matter of change and how you can handle it in a positive way.

    • Thanks for your kind words. I’ve always loved the quote “when one door closes, another one opens”. My decision to end my coaching business will allow me the opportunity to grow in other areas of my life. I just have to trust and keep my eyes open for the next light on my path. Our perspective make all the difference in how we view change!
