Day starts pretty positively with monthly telephone session with business coach.
Bring him up to date with how I am (and how I am not!) coping with his current coaching theme of "protecting my energy levels by being selfish". Over the year, it has become horribly obvious that this is an absolutely vital point – people around me drain my energy. While my energy levels are usually high, when they do drop it takes a very long time for the tank to fill up again. In the meantime, I am reduced to a negative, tearful pile of useless rubbish. Many of us feel the somewhat British need to keep going against all adversity. On top of that, us females have a tendency, I think, to put ourselves last. We somehow feel the least deserving. Life is all about learning though. If I work hard enough at it, no doubt I’ll crack this problem.
