It might have been 8 or 9 years ago when I held my first book by the German author and coach Sabine Asgodom in my hands. And I felt lost.
How can she dare! Tell me to live a "wild and desirous" life?! In my situation? I have to somehow manage my daily life without drowning! Don't let anyone see how I really feel. How bad it is for me. Because that's what I wanted, right?! Initiated the separation and divorce, being a single mom now. There is no freedom going with that package. And my demand for appreciation or meaning in my work? I wiped that away with my tears every day because it wasn't part of the package either.
And then she seeded doubts.
With every sentence.
What if there is another way?
May I admit that I want more?
May I even want more?
It was the thing that got me started.
Fast forward to the year 2017. August 2nd.
On my bookshelf there are now at least 12 books by Sabine Asgodom. And I met her and thanked her in person - for the right questions, for essential impulses and inspiration, for life-changing prompts for thinking and acting.
Because it worked :-)
I think the first and most important step was to give myself persmission to dream again. And the second was to not only dream.
Next week I'll have a dream coming true!
Working with my inspiration herself as part of Sabine's team in her Summer Camp in the Luneburg Heath from August 10th to 13th : "Die Kunst des geglückten Lebens - Wie Sie Ziele und Träume verwirklichen" ("the art of a thriving live - how you realize goals and dreams"). In an exclusive additional workshop I'll help the participants to create their symbol jewelry which will then accompany and encourage them on their way to achieve their goals and dreams.
When we prepared the workshop, Sabine interviewed me about my life dream and how I help people to fulfill theirs. It's in German and you can read my answers here.
I'm not there yet. I'm right in the middle of fulfilling my dreams.
Yet, compared to 2008 I'm definitely living a more "wild and desirous" life, meaning more fulfilled with my own concept of my own freedom.
And I'm forever thankful for all the help I've received in direct and indirect ways.
Where are you on your way of realizing your dreams? What helped you the most, what do you need?
What is the thing that got you started?
Leave a comment, I'm always happy to learn more!
