Hello Fellow Bloggers and Friends! Here it is! My first attempt at a blog post!! I have to admit being new to this, I’m not sure how to proceed except to say: I love being a coach and seeing people empowered to live purposeful lives with passion and joy and if blogging/posting will help others get there than here goes!
At a recent group coaching event around the topic of Boundaries, many questions surfaced that I thought might be interesting to throw out into the ‘blogasphere’ to see what feedback, comments, answers, reflections might come. Feel free to comment, share and offer feedback.
? What comes to mind for you when you think of a boundary or boundaries?
? What are some examples or types of boundaries?
? Thinking about boundaries in our own lives, what are we/are we not responsible for?
? What keeps us from setting boundaries?
? What keeps us from accepting boundaries others set?
? Do you have trouble saying yes/hearing yes? Why?
? Do you have trouble saying no/hearing no? Why?
? What is one thing you could do to improve a boundary (s) in your own life?
? On a scale of one to ten, how important to you is it to make this change?
? Who do you have in your life that you could share this with that could support you/hold you accountable as you make this change?
Before I share from my personal journey on boundaries I want to hear from you! Here are a couple of quotes to ponder as you reflect and look at your own life in relationship to Boundaries. Thank you for taking time to read this post.
“A boundary is a personal property line that marks those things for which we are responsible. In other words, boundaries define who we are and who we are not. Boundaries impact all areas of our lives.” ― Henry Cloud, Boundaries Face to Face: How to Have That Difficult Conversation You’ve Been Avoiding
“No” is a complete sentence.”
