In 2001, when Shannon got divorced, she didn’t know where to turn.  Their friends were “their” friends, her family didn’t want to take sides and she felt like she had failed.  Shannon turned to the bar scene, looking for validation, a connection, a sense that she was worthy. She had friends and, on the outside, appeared to be having fun, but there was still an emptiness inside that nothing seemed to fill.  She didn’t think anyone would understand how she felt or how she could even put it into words; she just hoped the next relationship would just “fix” her. In 2006, at a conference for work, she ended up sitting next to a stranger who told her about life coaching, a profession she hadn’t heard of before.  Shannon enrolled in the CTI program and, although the purpose was to be trained, she learned that the emptiness could only be filled by going inward. By seeing herself as worthy, as lovable, as whole and complete and healing those old wounds. Letting go of the past and knowing that she could create the future she deserved drove Shannon to the life she has today.  Yes, there are bumps, but take the lesson, learn from it and move on. The only baggage we should carry is our suitcase when we’re on vacation!
