Life is meant to be abundant in all areas!
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
I wanted to let you know how much fruit our coaching has beared! Starting with my personal business--piano teaching it's going very well. I have NINE new students this term! And I'm completely confident that when I come back in January I will have almost a full schedule! I'm also teaching two students who live by Richmond Park in this beautiful house with a grand Steinway piano looking out onto a garden...when I walked in it was incredible because it was very very much like the place I envisaged I wanted to teach in!
The other bit of news is that after having almost no contact with Ryan over the summer we got back in touch at the end of last month and are now back together! He is a different man - committed, clear about his feelings for me, communicative, affectionate...really it's been a joy. And I know that I have learnt a great deal too. I think we are both very happy being back together and feel excited about the future. Ryans' business is going very well, he is more confident about his music...All good stuff.
Also my yoga practice is going very well. I go regularly twice, sometimes 3 times a week. I look and feel really healthy and fit - probably the fittest I have ever been. The yoga is doing me so much good, not only physically but emotionally and spiritually. Thank you so much for your beautiful energy this year. Really all of the above is a direct result of my work with you. I am so grateful for everything you have given me with so much grace.
I met Bre in February of 2008, after I had gone through a horrible breakup with my boyfriend. I didn't have the best of luck in the boyfriend area and I noticed that an unhealthy pattern existed for me, when it came to relationships. I was choosing wrongly. I sought Bre out because I was determined to put a stop to this spate of crazy relationships. I will never forget what Bre said to me when we first started this coaching relationship. She said, " Arlene, by the end of our coaching relationship, I want you to be unrecognizable even to yourself ". This is exactly what has happened to me. I look back at the person that I was in 2008 and I don't recognize that person. My growth has been exponential. The greatest lesson I learnt from Bre was the whole concept of self-love. I would hear about self-love but I didn't really know what it meant. Throughout our coaching relationship, Bre helped me in learn how to establish healthy boundaries. Establishing healthy boundaries is a demonstration of self-love. This was one of my greatest weaknesses. People used to walk all over me. I was too nice and there were people who would take advantage of that. I no longer have a problem in this area and I have learnt to put myself first because I matter.
I now know my self worth, thanks to this coaching relationship. I think that's the greatest lesson that anyone can learn from a coaching relationship Šthe lesson of self-love, because once that has been established, everything else will fall into place.
Bre and I are currently working on the area of relationships and I see a change in myself in this area as well. In the past, I would simply be happy with the fact that someone showed interest in me and that in and of itself, was enough to win me over. I used to simply be happy that someone liked me and I never looked at how my interactions with this person, were going to affect me. I honestly wish that more people would take up life-coaching. It has been a life changing experience for me. I am so happy to have met Bre and I thank her for the work she is doing to transform people's lives for the better.
After years of complaining about my family obligations, husband, career and where I live, I finally realized I was tired of listening to myself and I'm sure others were also. It finally dawned on me, that no one else was going to magically change my life and I had to do something about it myself.
Working with Bre was wonderful! She was able to help me redirect my energy to pinpoint the things that were important to me and she made me accountable for taking the steps to bring them into my life.
I still have the same family obligations, husband, career and living location, but I now look at them with new eyes, eyes of gratitude. I've been able to do this by adding other things that are important and meaningful to me. I now know how to give myself that things that make me fulfilled. Anytime I feel frustrated with life, I look at my action plan to see what I am NOT doing. With a few adjustments I get back on track and continue moving forward.
Thank you, Bre!

I knew nothing about life coaching...or that there was the possibility of living a more fulfilled life. I just believed I was supposed to get thru it the best I could and that it was a struggle...until I was blessed by Bre. She helped me identify all the things in my life that were making me feel unworthy. I would sabatoge myself by not planning enough time in my day to take care of me. I wouldn't plan my meals, then I'd eat terribly because I'd get so hungry. I wouldn't take the time to put my clothes together and I was constantly running late. Then, I would make excuses for the way I looked the way I felt and for my home. Not anymore!! Now I take the time to plan, listen to me and show up for me. People continually compliment me on how good I look and it's true--I'm glowing on the inside and it shows. I am ten times more peaceful, centered and because I'm caring for me, I have more confidence. Bre has shown me how truly amazing life is and that everyone has magnificence in them and everyone deserves to live their dreams. Each day is now a blessing and I look forward to the journey!
