The "—"; it's a funny little thing, isn't it?
Used most often to highlight areas within sentences in writing, such as
Even the simplest tasks—washing, dressing, and going to work—seemed nearly impossible in my darkest hours...
But when is it most important?
The importance of your "—" comes when it is place between those two all important dates...
Your date of birth, and your date of death...
...DOB — DOD
Now this is not a message of morbid scaremongering.
It's a message of hope, a message filled with love, a message to STOP and take stock.
The importance of YOUR "—"is, ultimately, what you place on it.
When all we have is the gap between those two date - what do you want to make of YOURS?
Are you good?
Are you happy where you are, how life is going, how you show up in your world, and how your world is for you?
Fantastic!!! Keep doing what you are doing. I love hearing ladies talk of the successes they are having, the amazing lives they are leading, the joy, contentment, fulfilment and peace that they have.
BUT, they are not the majority.
If you're answer to that all important question of
"Are you happy where you are, how life is going, how you show up in your world, and how your world is for you?"
...Then let's talk. Really talk.
My role in this world is to serve.
As Tracey said recently in her client story - this call isn’t about making a sale. This isn’t about convincing anyone to buy anything.
This is about being of absolute service to you, the woman who has trusted me enough to spend an hour of your time with me.
It is one of the greatest gifts of my life as a discovery coach - to be able to serve another human being.
My expectations when I come into our call are ZERO.
I am here to GIVE, not GET and I come with LOVE.
I am here to help you feel seen, accepted, and loved.
If you want or need more than that - we can have that conversation, see if it's right for us both, but most importantly, this call is about me showing up for you in a way maybe no one else every has before.
If you want to talk, want to understand what life could really be like and the exact next steps to get there, you can book a slot on my schedule here.
Spaces are limited because there is only one of me.
I look forward to speaking with you.
P.S. After writing this post, I came across this beautiful poem by Linda Ellis -
The Dash - By Linda Ellis
I read of a man who stood to speak
at the funeral of a friend.
He referred to the dates on the tombstone
from the beginning… to the end.
He noted that first came the date of birth
and spoke of the following date with tears,
but he said what mattered most of all
was the dash between those years.
For that dash represents all the time
they spent alive on earth
and now only those who loved them know
what that little line is worth.
For it matters not, how much we own,
the cars… the house… the cash.
What matters is how we live and love
and how we spend our dash.
So think about this long and hard;
are there things you’d like to change?
For you never know how much time is left
that still can be rearranged.
To be less quick to anger
and show appreciation more
and love the people in our lives
like we’ve never loved before.
If we treat each other with respect
and more often wear a smile…
remembering that this special dash
might only last a little while.
So when your eulogy is being read,
with your life’s actions to rehash,
would you be proud of the things they say
about how you lived your dash?
