In 2013, I was standing outside overlooking our Ranch full of animals, when my daughter walked up and stood beside me. She slid her hand in mine, look up and asked, “Are you ever going to be smile again?” She knew I’d been sad for many years, and my 50th birthday was one year away. I wanted the second half of life to be amazing, so I left a 25 year broken marriage and took my daughter with me.
Once we settled into our new home, I felt like writing a book, but my daughter recommended I start a Blog. I’m grateful for this Blog because it helped strengthen my voice that I had lost in my marriage. It gave me a space to call my own and the courage to write whatever’s on my heart.
In 2014, I joined an online workshop to learn how to Let Go of the pieces of my past that were holding me back. Going through each lesson on a weekly basis was a fresh start to this new beginning. Once I completed all the lessons, I was offered the opportunity to become a certified Letting Go Coach. I received certification and the name of this Blog was born.
Sadly, the couple who wrote the lessons and gave the certification let go of one another. The company dissolved, and I was one of half a dozen certified Letting Go Coaches, but I never stepped into the role of Coach. The name Letitgocoach became my nom de plume, but reader’s still call me Coach.
My actual name is Barbara, but most people shorten it to Barb. I hope wherever you find yourself in this life, you muster up the courage to make it what you want, and never settle. Don’t even think about it. 💖
