Jealousy is not something I like to admit…

A couple of years ago, I had to write a difficult email. I wrote to apologize for saying unkind things about someone I was jealous of. I found out this person was dating someone that I liked. I lashed out behind her back.

And I hate to admit this but jealousy often grips my heart. It can be as simple as two friends of mine going out for lunch together without me. I play it cool but inside I am fuming. Or it can something larger.

I spoke to a mentor of mine about jealousy. His advice was simple: if you are jealous and sad that someone is not with you, pray for them.   Ask that this person is taken care of.

And it may seem silly or superficial but for me it helps. I ask that he or she is taken care of  and it helps to move me from a place of self-pity and anger to more openness. The jealousy doesn’t magically evaporate, but something shifts.

I am not perfect. And I have said my share of hurtful things.  But I am in the struggle to become more kind.

I work with big hearted people who want to make a positive impact in the world. The only problem is: -Your career isn’t working -You wake up some days and don’t want to get out of bed -You’re stressed about paying the bills Career Coaching in the Forest teaches you how to make small shifts that will free up tons of energy for the things you really love. A life where you wake up to feeling a sense of purpose and easily pay the bills. I teach you how to approach making a career change in a way that is fun, easy and gets results :). I have over a decade of experience in the field of education and during my four years at an educational non-profit I hired enough contract staff to know what employers want and DON’T WANT in the job application process. So why did I start this? When I was 24, I was overwhelmed by my job working with vulnerable youth and fell apart. I moved to a yoga centre for 2 years to put myself back together. There I figured out what I was messing up at work and became a yoga and meditation teacher. Career Coaching in the Forest will help you to see the mistakes you’re making without having to move to a yoga centre! And use meditative practices to help you see where you need to go. I know exactly what it feels when something’s not right in your career and now I love helping others to make changes so their lives can become full of meaning and purpose again and so that you can make lots money too ;).
