It’s not you, it’s me.
You know when you’ve had your eyes on the prize of a long term relationship for a long time, but you’ve entertained flings and dates (and Netflix and wine and ice cream and maybe your favorite personal massager) while you were waiting for the right partner to show up?
And somehow, if you’re paying attention, all of those experiences help you get clearer on what you’re looking for in your vision for a relationship, the right partner, and what parts of you that you really want to bring to the relationship.
They mold you into what you are becoming so that you will be ready for the relationship you really want.
You can only do so much with Netflix, wine, ice cream and vibrators before you decide that what you want is real human connection.
You can only have so many flings before you decide that you want something that has more depth.
You can only go on so many first dates with guys that text you, “How are you today?” before you can’t stomach it any longer.
So, I’m going to share something close to my heart with you.
I’ve known for a long time that the work that I do with women has very little to do ONLY with romantic relationships. I also knew that it was one important context in which to get to the core of what I have to share.
I work with so many women who feel like they can’t be ALL OF WHO THEY ARE. And it’s time for me to walk my talk. My love for relationships is not going away. But – it is just part of who I am.
For myself, and for the benefit of the women I serve, I must acknowledge that there is so much more to me than talking and coaching on relationships.
About two months ago, I heard a whisper. It said, “You’re done being a relationship coach. You’re ready to focus on the real vision you have for the impact you want to have in the world.”
Over the last couple of years, I’ve developed a really strong partnership with that whisper. My agreement with it is to listen, and the whisper agrees to whisper. It’s been wild and unexpected and often challenging to the core, but it has never led me astray.
I’ve chosen to listen. (*One ticket for the funnest roller coaster ride ever, please!) Here’s what that means.
Don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere. I’m really just more transparently expanding the vision I have to serve you and women like you.
That vision? It’s for a world of women who bring all of who they are to their lives.
It’s turning up your hell yeses and owning your no’s with grace. It’s connecting even MORE closely with your internal guidance system. It’s 300 little choices every day that drive from you being all of you rather than meeting expectations.
I’d like to introduce you to The Unfinishing School.
Everything you want with all of the social conditioning, the playing small, the doubt, the other people’s expectations washed off.
Really, just more of the awesome content and perspective that you’ve come to feel giddy about reading from yours truly, but with a different name and a lens that will make way more sense.
Unless you’re like, “Eff no, I’d prefer death by a thousand cuts, Rachel.”
If that’s the case, we can gracefully say goodbye, no sweat. (Make me proud and go create that relationship you’ve been wanting!)
It’s been really fun, and it’s about to get way more fun. Thanks so much for being a part of this – I’m truly grateful for you.
