"You're going to see a Life Coach?" My good friend and colleague remarked with hesitation in her voice. "Be careful Abby, its always such a risk when you find these people online, you never know who or what you will get."
I find it amazing how much you can focus and concentrate so intensely on one thing only. Everything else can be blocked out no matter how much of a distraction it may normally be. I had blocked out the excitement of Queensland, the sun shining at 28 degrees; and that a crowd had lined the fence and filled two grandstands to watch us. To put all those distractions aside and concentrate was something that at 17 years old, I had trained myself to do. To otherwise be absorbed up into this exciting atmosphere was a distraction that many of my opponents succumb to.
For the first time in my life, I remember feeling so utterly empowered, I did not desire a man or a romantic relationship to feel loved. This had come after a string of interesting interactions with men during my time in Canada. If I remember this time in my life, I'd also started to turn inwards. To start looking for the answers their, to start creating the things I wanted. After all that's what everyone was telling me. Create a life you love for yourself, focus on yourself and the right people will show up.
