You Only Get One Life

April 03, 20245 min read

How is life going for you? 

Are you where you thought you’d be at this stage of your life? 

Do you feel like you’ve lost momentum

Do you feel like you have no direction, that life is just passing you by, that all your days are very similar from start to finish? 

Do you have a nagging feeling that your life was supposed to turn out differently? 

Do you feel like you were meant for more?

According to a global study, 75% of people feel stuck personally and professionally. Are you one of them?

I was. 

For most of my twenties and thirties, I felt stuck, not just in my career, but also in my life. 

Classmates graduated from university and went confidently in the direction of their dreams, while I started a job I wasn’t sure of, but thought would only last five years. 

Friends got married and had children while I stayed single, married to my work. 

My career lasted way longer than planned because I didn’t know what else to do, where to start, or how to figure it out.

I also stayed for the financial security- the golden handcuffs tightened a little more each year. 

So what happened that made me finally resign?

I got clarity on what I wanted and who I wanted to be.

This didn’t happen overnight. 

But what prompted me to really take stock of where I was and make the decision to quit an easy one was my doctor. 

Imagine yourself at 90, looking back at the life you had led. Would you regret staying in your career longer and retiring as planned? Or would you be grateful that you had resigned now and pursued another path?

It was so obvious when he put it that way. I remember sitting in the car after thinking ‘Okay, I have to quit, but what would I do?

So I got curious. 

Listening to podcasts, reading personal development books, talking to other women who were coaches and entrepreneurs, and journalling (a LOT of journalling) helped me identify what I wanted moving forward. 

Getting coached, both by professionals and by peers as I did my coaching certification, was life-changing as it showed me the possibilities that exist for all of us if we are open-minded and hungry for more.

Boussole Wellness Coaching was founded in 2022. Boussole is French for compass and as a world traveller (45 countries and counting!), I love all things related, including compasses, maps, atlases, travel books, and the like. A compass helps us find our way when we are lost. It points us in the right direction if we’re unsure of what direction to take. 

If you’re ready to take that first step on your journey to greater health and happiness, you’re in the right place.

If you want help getting unstuck and need some guidance on your path to finding your bliss, you’re in the right place. 

I can help you (re)discover who you are and what you want, and I will celebrate your small wins and big victories along the way.

So many women get to a point in their lives where they wonder, ‘Is this all there is? Is this the way my life is going to be?

Maybe you’ve been wondering the same thing. Or maybe you’re asking yourself how did this become your life when you think back to the dreams and goals you had when you were younger. 

Here’s a reminder: You only get ONE life.

There are no do-overs.

This is your one opportunity to live the life you want, the life you deserve.

When you’re time is up, you’re done.

You can’t go back to the start.

You don’t get a second chance.

This is it. 

The good news is that your life is 100% your choice. 

You get to choose whether you stay where you are and continue on the path you’re already on, even if that path isn’t as exciting as you thought, even if that path isn’t quite what you thought it would be. It probably feels safer and it certainly is familiar. 

OR…

You get to choose a different path. This one might be more challenging, it might feel harder or it might make you uncomfortable at first. There might be some obstacles along the way and there may be some joyful discoveries too. This path might push you out of your comfort zone and demand a bit more of you, but in my experience, this is where the magic truly happens. 

Your life will be forever changed by stepping off the familiar path and blazing your own trail.

You will (re)discover who you are and who you are meant to be.

You will have greater clarity and purpose and start to live more authentically as you become more connected to yourself and your vision for your future. 

If you’ve had a nagging feeling in your gut that you were meant for more, it’s time you listened.

There is still so much of life for you to enjoy, so many wonderful opportunities available to you, and so many incredible experiences to be had. 

Don’t wait any longer. This is your sign.

Get off the well-worn path and start your journey to a life you love now. 

And if you need a guide to help you clear your new path, I’m here, to listen, to question, to challenge, to inspire. 

The more women who tune in to what they really want and start taking action to make it happen, the more it benefits everyone, starting with the ones they love. 

Take action today. You won’t regret it.
