I know I haven’t posted in a while.  I have been struggling with significant physical and mental health issues over the past weeks.  I’ve managed the odd tweet or sharing on Facebook, but that’s about it.  I will be sending  letters out shortly to all the fantastic coaches who asked to join the directory, as well as those of you who have signed up for updates.  I have decided I need to take a sabbatical “just for me” for the next while.  I need to concentrate on getting well again before I branch out to working on the business, much as I love it.  There just aren’t enough hours in the day to do both right now.  This will probably push the launch into the new year. I really hope you will be patient with me, keep sending in those applications to the directory, or just get yourself on my mailing list.  I know The Women’s Coach House will be even better when it takes off in 2011.

Now for the great story…it’s from the White Dove Books newsletter….made me smile (and that’s saying something these days:-)


Who will You be Tomorrow?
by Steve Goodier
One man sat at a stop light. The woman in front of him was going through papers on the seat of her car, and when the light changed to green she didn’t go. A green light is not a suggestion, you know, it is more of a commandment. But she didn’t notice.
When the light turned red again, she still had not moved. The man in the car behind her now started screaming epithets and beating on his steering wheel.
A policeman tapped on his windshield. “You can’t arrest me for hollering in my car,” the man said. The cop asked for his license and registration, returned to his car, talked on the radio for a while, and finally handed the papers back. The driver protested, “I knew you couldn’t cite me for yelling in my own car!”
The officer replied, “I didn’t want to cite you for shouting in your car. But I was directly behind you at the light. I saw you screaming and beating your steering wheel, and I said to myself, ‘That man is out of control. He’s going to hurt someone!’ Then I noticed the cross hanging from your rear view mirror, the bright yellow ‘Love Is a Choice’ license tag, the ‘Give Peace a Chance’ and ‘Prayer Changes Things’ bumper stickers, and I was sure you must have stolen the car.”
His behaviour did not reflect his bumper stickers. But let’s not be too critical. Are we always the people we want to be?
We make changes by stretching. Personal transformation can happen when the person we presently are does not yet resemble the person we hope to be. Better to set high ideals and occasionally fall short than to settle for mediocrity and succeed.
The important question is not, “Who are you today?” It is better to ask, “Who will you be tomorrow?”
Remember: if nothing ever changed, there’d be no butterflies.
