Are You Rebuilding Your Life?                           

Are you having life challenges like job loss, financial issues, a cancer diagnosis, divorce, loss of a loved one, an automobile accident, an assault, or other types of life changes, etc.? Any one of these alone or in combination can cause such overwhelm that you may wonder what to do or how to pick up the pieces and rebuild your life. 

Welcome to my website, I’m Colleen. I’ve learned a lot about rebuilding lives. I know that when a combination of life-changing events occurs at one time, it can leave you feeling like you’ve had a hard punch in the stomach or even feeling absolutely numb. It can take time to process all that has happened and begin to move forward again. So the key is to be patient and take life one day at a time.

So many lives have been turned upside down around the world in the last few years. In the midst of all that has occurred and the constant changes that are still happening, it has become a time to carefully consider all that we hold dear in our lives like our values, spiritual beliefs, freedoms, quality of life, Constitutional rights, and how we can best move forward from where we are now, and how we can rebuild whatever we may have lost individually or collectively.

Maybe your life-rebuilding experience isn’t any of the things I have mentioned so far and maybe it’s not related to anything that we’ve dealt with in the last few years. Do you know it’s possible that positive changes like children growing up and moving out on their own, getting married, starting a new job, or moving to a new location can also be traumatic? While these things can be exciting, they are still stressful and somewhat traumatic—especially when leaving behind loved ones to move forward to live in other regions.

The many challenges of rebuilding your life after situations like the ones above take time, extra patience, and love from those who care about you.  Rebuilding is an inescapable, necessary, and ongoing part of life. It’s the kind of stuff that’s hard. But…the key is to stay open, positive, and teachable so you can learn, change, and grow through it all.  That’s true no matter what the loss or trauma might have been. 

During my life, I have done plenty of rebuilding from one thing or another. I’m here to share what I’ve learned so you can get faster results because that’s what a coach does. For whatever reason you find yourself rebuilding, I’m glad you are here. Come join me on this journey filled with some humor and a lot of hope in maximizing your potential no matter what stage of life’s rebuilding process you’re in right now and no matter what your age might be. I believe that if we sincerely care about others and take the time to listen, we can find ways to be a blessing to other people. That’s what I hope to do through this website. Thank you for joining me!
