Helping busy mums achieve more through maximising their unique strengths, mind and body.
Hello, I’m Lyn.
Who I am and how did I get here? – well, I’m a daughter, life coach, mother, photographer, partner, writer, sister, student, friend, accountant, reader, volunteer, to name just some of my personas; the many parts who make me Lyn.
I always took the expectations of my roles very seriously, trying hard to ensure I met those expectations. Yet, by the time I had my second child and was juggling all my personas, I had reached overwhelm.
I could no longer relate to who I was and didn’t particularly like the stressed, snappy, exhausted person I’d become. I was trying hard to be ‘perfect’ in all my key roles (you can have it all right?) and in my own eyes I was failing miserably. The guilt and sense of failure was constantly there.
The opportunity to move to Switzerland, with my family, gave me the space and chance to consider what I really wanted and who I really was. It gave me the chance to explore and grow, to face my fears, to try new things, and most of all to enjoy and appreciate my life again.
Over the 5 years I learnt so much about myself and realised that the rules I had governed my life by – the ‘you must do it correctly’, ‘you have to work hard to get anywhere’, ‘you should always help people’, ‘failure is bad’, ‘everyone judges you’ – were not helping me at all. I needed a new set of rules to support me; to help me achieve what I wanted in my life and to live my best life.
Five years on I have returned to the UK and I do enjoy and appreciate my life. I am still on the life long journey of self-discovery and growth. I am still working on achieving what I want in life. I am exploring new hobbies and working on creating the business I desire, as well as spending quality time with my family.
I am now happy with where I am at, as I have accepted life is a journey not a destination.
I hope that you can find tips and tools in the pages of this website to help you on your journey
Remember, live your life – be you!
