If this was your last day, would you be satisfied with your life? What would you have done differently?

“I am so busy. I am running around like a headless chicken. There doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day. I am going around in circles continuously. It’s like Groundhog Day every day. Nothing ever changes. God there must be more to life than this”?

Have you ever spoken any of these statements? I know I certainly have. I sat with the above question today for awhile and had a good long think to myself.

If this was my last day, would I be satisfied with my life and what would I have done differently”?

There are parts of my life I am very satisfied with, but there are also parts of my life that if I could go back, I would change in a heartbeat. For one thing I would not have waited until I was 50yrs to put boundaries into my life. I have allowed so many people to treat me in any way they wished even if it made me feel bad. My self-esteem, self-confidence and self-worth all suffered massively. I suppose for a long time I was a victim of other people’s badness, and I felt sorry for myself, so I acted like a victim. I allowed my emotional health to be affected. It was my mindset at that time.

I have come to realise that in life, shit happens, and it is how we react or respond to this same shit that defines how we live our life. I have wasted so many years allowing the badness of others to control how I went through life. I hate that word “victim”. I am NOT a victim. I am strong, courageous, I have a lovely heart, I would never intentionally hurt another, I am compassionate, I am Mary.

I have a wonderful family, (well most of them) I have been blessed with beautiful friends, I have travelled to a lot of destinations on holiday, I have been lucky enough to have worked most of my life. Some jobs I have hated and more I have loved. I count myself very blessed to have become a Life, confidence, and mindset coach. It is because of this profession I have worked on and changed my mindset on so many levels.

Please God, it is not my last day, so that I may help others to change their mindset on issues they feel are affecting how they live their life. This life we have all been blessed with is not a rehearsal, so we really should decide how we want to live it. No one else in this whole world can decide that for you unless you allow it.

To sum it up, I have been satisfied mostly with my life. The one thing I would have done differently is to have studied to become a Life coach years ago, so I would have been in control of my thoughts and feelings and I would not have allowed others to treat me like they did. I would have slowed down a bit more because life is for living. Here is to the next slower, more mindful 30 yrs 😊

Now I ask you to take some time and think about this question

If this was my last day, would I be satisfied with my life and what would I have done differently”?

My name is Mary of Yana Life Coach Service. I am an Accredited Life coach. I coach people who are lacking in self-confidence, self-esteem, want more from their lives but just now in this moment, they are fearful of stepping out of their comfort zone. I have been in that very same position until I trained as a Life coach. I decided to study Life coaching as I had always been passionate about helping people be the best versions of themselves. I became the best version of myself during this time. I had suffered desperately with self-confidence and self-esteem issues. I was always afraid to step out of my comfort zone, I had very little self-belief, thinking this is where my safe place was, but I soon found it was not a place that made me happy. There was so much I wanted to do but fear held me back. While I was studying for my accreditation, I learned so much about myself. I became more confident; my self-esteem improved no end and I stepped out of that comfort zone. I now work with clients one to one, I also run workshops. These workshops include a Happiness workshop, Step out in confidence workshop, Self-Awareness workshops and Goal Setting workshops. After each of these workshops you will leave feeling more confident about yourself and your abilities. I know you have probably heard these words a million times, " If I can do it anyone can", I really mean this. I was a total mess walking into my first day of the Life coaching class at the age of 46yrs, but I was not a mess leaving it. It really was the best decision of my life. I am who I am today because of it. I have become the best version of myself, now let me help you become the best version of yourself.
