"It was fair to say I was at a cross roads in my life, one that was preventing happiness and clarity. I had a successful career that I loved, had recently separated from my husband of 10 years for all the right reasons, had a 5 year old daughter that needed a mum who was firing on all cylinders, and was recovering from a double dose of breast cancer. I felt absolutely lost."
It was fair to say I was at a cross roads in my life, one that was preventing happiness and clarity. I had a successful career that I loved, had recently separated from my husband of 10 years for all the right reasons, had a 5 year old daughter that needed a mum who was firing on all cylinders, and was recovering from a double dose of breast cancer. I felt absolutely lost.
Serendipity, in the form of an article in a magazine, resulted in an email Jessica. I was midway through chemotherapy and didn’t have the brain power to launch into anything, but knew I needed the kind of guidance that was right for me; unpatronising that didn’t draw from the first obvious conclusions. I knew having cancer was going to bring a wagon full of emotional distress along with the physical disease, but I wanted someone to see through that. I wanted to know how to live my life and how to find the courage of my convictions to not waste another minute living it the wrong way.
They say it’s all in the timing and Jessica’s timing was perfect. An email landed in my inbox just as my brain power was making a come back. The months that we worked together were completely enlightening, with breakthrough after breakthrough, not all were easy, but all were absolutely worth it. Jessica has a way of helping you see the light. Her challenge, insights and clear strategies all contributed to an understanding about what was really important to me, what I really wanted and what steps I could take to remove all my self limiting beliefs, doubts and uncertainties.
The results have taken me to places I never thought possible. I conquered demons, slain dragons and learnt to believe in my own dreams, but more importantly I made some crucial decisions about how I wanted to live my life. Cancer brings about a whole new perspective to the world but without Jessica’s help I would not have found the clarity about my life that I now possess. I feel completely grateful for the serendipitous magazine article that brought about our coaching sessions. Jessica was a breath of fresh air in a world that was starved of oxygen. I will always feel thankful that Jessica had the foresight to contact me after my initial enquiry when she did, and that she really worked with me to peel back the layers of my onion to get to the absolute truth of what I really wanted to do.
So, what happened? Well, after resigning myself to life as as single girl as the man I really wanted to meet surely didn’t exist, well, it turns out that he did, and still does. After being plagued with energy draining people for what has seemed like forever, the new energy I discovered moved me away from negative people and towards those full of sunshine. After a dedicated career working with people that just did not share my values, I took a huge leap of faith and resigned to pursue my big dream of writing. I slowed down, found all my cylinders that are more than fired up for my daughter, appreciated the small stuff and stopped stressing about the ‘what if’s’. I found my courage, my clarity and my purpose and now my life feels like one very amazing, exciting adventure. I have to pinch myself at times to remind me that I have come such a long way. I would not be on this adventure of mine without Jessica’s help.
I highly recommend working with Jessica if you feel lost, stuck, unsure or just desperate for a new perspective. There is a life out there, one that is full of your life long passions. Jessica helps you dare to dream it and then shows you the art of the possible.
