So what holds you back?
Like many people, after graduation, I entered the corporate world and eventually found my niche in airline marketing. The perks were nice however, I never really felt a sense of satisfaction or fulfillment throughout my corporate career. Something was always missing. Sound familiar?
My turnaround began in 1993…
At the time, I was unhappy in my corporate career of 23-1/2 years, my 13-year marriage was failing, and I didn’t know where to turn. I was stuck! Deep down, I knew what I should do, but I didn’t have the courage or fortitude to take responsibility and be accountable for my own decision. False pride kept me from seeking help. Instead, I bottled my pain up inside and put on a happy face, all the while feeling like a fraud.
In a moment of deep sadness, I went to the small church next door to my office building just to be still. I sat there alone through my lunch hour, hoping for a “sign.”
I returned to the office. Within minutes, a colleague stopped by to say, “Did you see the parachute package? It’s great!” The airline was downsizing and asking people to volunteer for retirement, with all existing perks in place. I read the offer that evening and applied the next morning. It felt so right I didn’t even have to think about it! I would be paid in full for two years to stay home and figure out what to do with my life! Plus, it would give me time to “work” on my marriage.
I gave my marriage a couple more years and knew there was no saving it. So, in March 1996, I made another decision, and, by June, I was the sole owner of an income property in a lovely, safe Toronto neighbourhood. I was self-employed as a travel management consultant as well as a freelance travel editor and writer for a Canadian magazine, earning more than I ever had in the corporate world. Plus, I was travelling the world, had rental income coming in on a monthly basis and I was finally content and at peace.
Now, had you told me on that sad day in 1993 that this was where I would be by June 1996, I would have scoffed at the idea. But the pain of sitting in the land of indecision far outweighed any fear I had of the unknown.
I tell you all this because whenever I am undecided or sitting in fear, I remember what I was able to accomplish once I made a decision in 1993 and had the courage to move forward on it.
Onwards and upwards…
I went on to indulge my interests in travel writing, Astrology and spiritual healing. In 1996, I worked with a group of like-minded women called “Spirituality at Work,” which mentored career women who were seeking their own spiritual path. As a certified Gentle Trauma Release Practitioner and Empowerment Coach for Women, I combine coaching techniques and protocols with my knowledge of Astrology.
