Fear of change
Nothing too unusual about that except while I was out I saw only one other person, apart from the lady serving in the bakery.
The only vehicle I saw was the bin lorry.
Usually at that time the village is busy with people on their way to work and the kids off to school.
Today we are on lock down. Thankfully the bakery counts as an essential service.
Change happens whether we like it or not. Big changes are happening in the world right now. Some are temporary, others will have a longer lasting effect.
Fear of change is fear of the unknown.
Fear of change is one of the biggest obstacles for our changing anything at all in our lives.
In her book, What If It Does Work Out?, Susie Moore says:
Fear manifests itself in a million ugly ways. It shows up as excuses. Or procrastination. It shows up as practicality: “Oh, I’d love to be a photographer but I can’t make money that way.” It shows up as confusion or ignorance: “I have no idea what my purpose is.”
Where are you procrastinating, making excuses?
What do you really want to do with your life?
Where are you stuck? Feeling bogged down?
Now, as our daily routines are changing, you may well be spending more time thinking about what’s really important to you, what your priorities are and what needs to change.
As a wellness practitioner, body worker and coach, I provide support, encouragement and practical steps to guide you through any hesitation or fear to make the changes you know you need to make to regain freedom and independence.
I’ve been through many, many changes – I’ve lived and worked in 5 different countries; 3 marriages; had several changes of career.
Sometimes the changes have been sudden, sometimes I’ve had to take the time to plan such as when I applied for immigration to Canada or had to get myself out of an abusive marriage.
The times I’ve worked through events the most effectively and rapidly are those times I’ve worked with a coach.
Having a coach moves you forward to where you want to be so much more quickly. You gain clarity and once you are clear on exactly what you want you can start to identify the fears that are holding you back or sending you in the direction you don’t want to go.
Change is inevitable. You are bigger than any virus. Use this time to do something for yourself.

If I can’t help you, I probably know someone who can.
And a problem shared is a problem halved. Don’t struggle on your own. Please.
