I have been life coaching this 17-year old for the past year and a half and I asked her to make a note of the things she has learned. When I read them and realised that if we all learn these lessons we would handle things so much better. I love learning from the people around me. No matter what their age they teach me things about life, things about myself and things that I can only hope others can learn. My advice is always to pay it forward when you learn something new no matter how small you may think it is - it may be huge for someone else.
Things she has learnt recently:
It is amazing when I look back and think that this youngster was lost before taking a good look at life and herself. Now she has a few life tools to help her understand what it is that confuses her. Her life is a little clearer. She has also realised that the decisions are hers to make and that will help her figure out why things turn out the way they do. I am so proud of her for taking this step in the right direction and I admire her for what she has overcome.
