In 1999, I fulfilled two dreams. I moved to France and started my entrepreneurial endeavour, a full-time psychotherapy and coaching practice. You can imagine how exciting that was. I was bubbling over with enthusiasm and creativity, a constant smile on my face. I noticed it when I woke up in the morning, when I consulted my calendar, and when I was out in Paris.
Over time, I noticed my smile gradually disappearing. There was a cacophony in my head: “Great, a full day of clients. I’ll get my teaching done tonight. Oh, but tonight is a networking event. My bookkeeping is falling into a black hole. I have this new idea to develop, when can I find the time? I have a new insight to incorporate into my research methodology, but when? Oh, the tension in my shoulders… How am I going to meet the deadlines for my articles and write the book I’ve been wanting to publish? This weekend, I’m attending a retreat and next weekend I’m leading one…” I get tense inside just thinking about it. My smile was being replaced by frown lines on my forehead as I engaged in my entrepreneurial endeavour, my dream.
