I feel pressure to be the perfect model for my clients, but the reality is I’m human too. I’m always fighting my own battles, working on my own self-growth and overcoming my own “shit”. Here’s a peak into my own process…

Recently I had a life changing conversation with one of my girlfriends which ended in a mind blowing epiphany.

It was a typical Tuesday night and our conversation went something like this…

Katie: “So what’s going on?”

Me: “Gosh, I don’t know… I just feel flat lately. Something needs to change.”

Katie: “Like what?”

Me: “I just feel like I am going through the motions and sometimes I feel like a fraud, like I’m not FLY living myself.”

Katie: “Well, how can you be FLY living?” said with ease

Me: “Oh my God! Oh my God! That’s it! I need to be FLY living! I need to embody FLY! I need to stop waiting for some future event and when I’m fully self-employed. I need to do it now!”

Katie: “Yes!”

Me: “YES!”

We: “YES, YES, YES!”

This conversation made me realize that somewhere in the midst of the transformation going on in my own life – coaching training, online business school, working part-time, creating my coaching business, working with my coaching clients and really creating the life I want to live, I stopped living.

Let me repeat that – In the midst of creating the life I want to live, I stopped living.

I put my dream life into the future instead of the present moment.

I’ve been focused only on work thinking everything else will come along when…

When my business takes off. When I finish coaching school. When I pay off my debt. Always putting something else first besides actually living the life I want to live!

I got caught up in the “I should” state of mind and the “I will when” mentality.

I know this concept is not new, but feeling flat and having the epiphany myself made it hit home, sink in and stick.

This conversation has changed the way I will live my life moving forward.

I’m taking my dream life out of the someday and putting it into the present. Today, right here, right now in this moment. Will you join me?

XO, emily
