How has 2012 treated you? For me it started with an adventure that was totally out of my comfort zone – dog sledding in the Arctic. Looking back on it now, it seems such a long time ago and although I have the memories I’ve forgotten how tough it was. I was scared of letting others down and injuring myself and although that happened (twisted knee) I completed the week and hopefully didn’t let others down. I still look at the pictures of my dog team and smile to myself.
The middle part of the year involved a lot of workshop presentations mainly in GP practices. It was a new experience doing one workshop 18 times! Although the content stayed the same each group was different and I had to quickly adapt to cope with either being squeezed between desks and filing cabinets or dealing with very talkative and exuberant staff! The workshops for Adult Recreation have all gone down very well this year including ones on NLP and assertion. More to come in the New Year www.petroc.ac.uk/adults.
Late summer I hit a bit of a confidence crisis. This came about with learning and participating in EFT www.eftfree.net and doing work on myself to address issues. I felt as if I was going through some kind of metamorphosis! At times I felt quite shaky about myself but with continued EFT feel I have moved forward and am back to really enjoying the work I do as a Coach.
Once again I have set myself a challenge for next year – voluntary work in South Africa! I’ve never visited Africa so I decided to do work on a game reserve near Port Elizabeth. This time I know physically I am up to the task and can’t wait to not only look after animals but contribute to their environment.
I hope that 2012 has treated you kindly and that you are already planning targets/goals/experiences to get the most of 2013.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
