From Chaos to Calm

From Chaos to Calm

Imagine that life was NOT a roller coaster of ups and downs and ongoing chaos. That every day you woke up with a smile on your face and a deep sense of calm and peace within you. Can you imagine this reality where chaos has given way to calm? How would you feel?

Reality is that life is a roller coaster and as such, it’s easy to find ourselves trapped in chaos – a place where control slips through your fingers, where everything feels hard, where you were previously not afraid, but now fear lurks in the shadows, and the weight of overwhelm and stress bears down heavily.

However, I want to share with you that there exists a path from chaos to this place of calm, to a place where clarity reigns, awareness guides, leadership empowers, and even money finds its rightful place.

In this blog I would like to invite you into the transformative journey from chaos to calm, where I will share with you how life coaching can serve as your compass, helping you navigate the turbulent waters of life towards the serene shores within.

How do you define chaos? 

Is it 100% negative? I admit that there have been many times that I have thrived on the chaos around me. Where I have allowed chaos to become a part of my life to the point that I didn’t know any differently. If something went wrong, I would move on and try something new.

This pattern continued for many years until the “something new” didn’t help anymore, when something went wrong,  more things seemed to go wrong. I was no longer thriving in the Chaos, I was trying to survive.

This is my definition of chaos:

Let me elaborate…

Controlling: One of the scariest things one can do is let go of control and embrace the uncertainty. The what if’s can be overwhelming and keep you stuck in a place that you don’t want to be. Even when you take a step forward, it can feel like two steps back.

Hard: Life can feel hard at times, but when it feels hard all the time, it leads to increased stress levels, exhaustion, and lack of motivation. The impact on your overall health and wellbeing is devastating when nothing changes.

Afraid: Being afraid is wired into our human DNA; we accept this as part of our evolution. But it can be incredibly frustrating when you find yourself constantly consumed and paralyzed by fears that prevent you from achieving what you want.

Overwhelmed: Feeling overwhelmed isn’t just a phrase to use as an excuse for not doing something; it is real. When left unchecked, increased feelings of overwhelm will negatively impact your ability to take actions, remain resilient, and cope.

Stressed: We have the ability to manage stress, but there comes a point when we don’t. However, often at ‘that’ point, we no longer have the capacity to notice the impact on ourselves. This is where it becomes more about surviving versus thriving.

With this definition in mind of chaos in mind, consider what do you seek when you are in this state of chaos? Maybe you don’t want to escape? Is it easier to stay where you are? Are you feeling you have no choice? If even for a moment you were able to move from chaos to calm, what would that look like? How would that feel for you?

Navigating from Chaos to Calm

Redefining Calm

Clarity: It is like wiping away the dust from a mirror and truly seeing yourself. Having clarity provides the focus to set the right intentions for you, to find a sense of purpose as you take off in the right direction on your journey with confidence.

Awareness: Building an awareness of self is like finding the pieces of your life puzzle that are ready to be connected. We have multiple layers to unpack, but as we do, this foundation will support you on your journey always. It is truly magical.

Leadership: It’s not just about being the C.E.O of your life; this is more. It is about creating a solid framework for continued personal growth; you are empowered, you hold yourself accountable, you inspire not just yourself but others too.

Money: Understanding our relationship with money and how it is integrated into our values and life is an important part of your journey to find CALM. Once you know, we can heal it to recognize it is a tool, not something that controls us.

How life coaching becomes your compass to navigate from chaos to calm

In the hands of a skilled life coach, chaos becomes a mere stepping stone on your path to calm. Embracing the chaos, understanding its facets, and learning how to transform it into clarity, awareness, leadership, and a healthy relationship with money, marks the evolution from a life dictated by uncertainty and fear to one led by purpose and serenity.

So, if you find yourself amidst chaos, remember, there is a way out. With the right guidance and determination, you can transform the controlling into the empowering, the hard into the transformative, the afraid into the courageous, the overwhelmed into the resilient, and the stressed into the thriving. Let the journey from chaos to calm begin today.
