Don’t Quit Your Daydream!

I love this message by the talented artist @TimPSingleton. Every time I ride past on my return from the pool it puts a big smile on my face. Years ago, when I was hustling between a 9 – 5 job, daycare and home responsibilities I dreamt of being able to swim every day and never having to beg a manager for vacation time again. Becoming self-employed helped make those dreams come to life. It has been a lot of challenge and work and not all prosperity and leisure, by any means…but so worth it. This beautiful mural reminds me – every day.   

I became a coach to help others realize their daydreams. I have clients who have left careers to become writers, a former teacher who is now a designer and builds gorgeous furniture, a new graduate who has found their first clinical research job in their chosen field. I am now developing a late career guided coaching program to help clients shape the possibilities of life in their 60s, 70s, 80s and beyond… because we all have capacities to design our life, at any stage.  

What are your daydreams? Big, modest, challenging? They are yours. Maybe you’ve never dared to say them aloud. Maybe when you did tell others they thought they were silly or grandiose. Maybe they said it would be too hard, or you’re not talented enough, or you’ll go broke. Don’t let anyone put down your dreams. Dreams come true with effort. I’m not going to encourage you to leap without a net…and giving advice is not my role. But coaching does provide a safe and confidential space and no judgement – to clarify what you want, what’s possible, and what you will need to do to achieve it. I will be an ally and a supporter and also hold you accountable for your progress   

You don’t have to do it alone. Working together you will make much more headway on taking steps toward the life changes you want. Let’s talk.
