Recently, one of the callers to my radio show asked me why I became a helping professional? Honestly, I stumbled over the answer. Why? Because the question felt to me like asking an adult when it was that they decided to quit crawling and start walking.
I guess what I’m trying to say, is that I’ve always felt like a helping professional.
It gives me the greatest joy to help others and because of that I feel it is my privilege to connect with my callers on my radio show. I feel honored that they choose to spend a piece of their day with me.
No matter where they are at, or where they come from in life, when we connect on a deeper, soul-level, I feel that something bigger than either of us unfolds. In the unfolding, magic happens. Hearts open. I find it very humbling.
The creed that I follow with my work is to accept that each of us is on our own, unique journey. It is never my place to judge. Only to accept, support, encourage and empower. If, in the process of Life Coaching for a talk radio show, I can impart some wisdom gleaned from my own training and life experiences, so be it. However, I often come away feeling that I have learned and gained so much more from my callers than they ever could from me.
As we head in to this New Year I want to thank my listeners for following my show. I especially want to thank my callers, who have given me so much.
Sharing this part of my life with my listeners and callers is a great honor and privilege. Thank you.
May the New Year bring you and yours happiness and blessings.
