Life, are you living yours the way you’d like?
Adventuresome. Resourceful. Captivated. Genuine. Eclectic.
These are the words that describe how I want to live mine.
I’m Shaun Roney, Certified Life, Weight and ADHD Coach,
a Jane-of-all-trades, nature lover, creative entrepreneur and reformed DIYer, app enthusiast (there’s an app for everything ya know!), former Marketing Director, self taught Wordpress dabbler, inventor, wine taster, dance instructor of 20 years, wife of 26 years, mother to a 24 year old daughter and 20 year old son, 3 adult step children (love you guys!) AND a momma to two fur babies (a Great Dane named Miso and a Rat Terrier named Mojo)
sign language is the most beautiful language in the world, one can be both introverted and extroverted, when in doubt do a time step,
random and quirky are great traits to have
and strangers are just friends we haven’t met yet.
Throughout my life I’d struggled with feeling valued and appreciated. Growing up I was a hard worker, but it was hard to organize myself, I was time challenged, and I never quite felt that I could reach my full potential no matter how hard I tried.
Something needed to be different, but I wasn't sure what. I invested in ADHD coaching for myself. I worked with an incredible ADHD Coach, Laurie Dupar, and then a few years later graduated from her IACT Center (International ADHD Coach Training Center) to become certified as an ADHD Coach myself.
Certain relationships felt difficult and I wasn’t sure why. All I wanted to do was make others happy, I didn’t want to disappoint anyone. I believed my value was in others “needing” me, and my role was to give selflessly. I was a classic people pleaser. As long as I “did things right” and “met others expectations” I was good. It felt nice to be appreciated. Until it wasn’t enough.
Something needed to be different, but I wasn't sure what. I invested in me. I began the journey on a one year self coaching program. The work that I did on myself that year opened the door to so many new shifts in me. What I discovered during that time has changed my life.
I had always felt at the mercy of those around me. How they felt would determine how I felt.
From my husband, to my bosses, to my friends, when all was good with them all was good with me. When they were having a rough day, it would also feel rough for me. It was exhausting and I couldn’t keep up with it. At one point I remember telling my husband “it can be you or my boss…I just can’t manage both of you at the same time, it’ll kill me!” I truly believed it.
I had always been drawn to personal growth, and had been looking at my part in all of this. How was I attracting the same situation of “difficult people” over and over again in my life? Don’t get me wrong, I loved them, but phew, DIFFICULT!
As I was moving through my self coaching program, the pieces started to come together. The one thing in common with all of these relationships was ME!
What if I had something to do with my misery?
It’s possible to feel better. With the help of my coach and some incredible tools, I learned I can own my feelings and allow others to own theirs. I learned that I’m not at the affect of my circumstances. I can choose what to think and how to respond to the situations around me. This makes all the difference.
I’ve always been drawn to personal growth, and have tried to look at my role in every situation. In some way I always knew there was only so much that I could control and other people have to be allowed to do their own work.
As I was moving through my self coaching program, the pieces started to come together. The one thing I had control over while interacting with others was ME! What if I had something to do with my misery? It sounds a little strange, but it worked.
The more I focused on managing my mind, the less I felt tossed around by the wave of emotions and situations that I was dealing with as a parent, employee, spouse and friend.
CHANGE. GROWTH. DISCOVERY
Now I want to help you. You hold an untapped brilliance within you. When life is too noisy, you can miss what’s yours for the taking. Just simply miss it. I’d like to walk with you, as we discover what makes you tick, what holds you back, what sends you soaring.
Using a method called The Model, along with a program I've developed, I’ll help you suss out what it is that you really want and then encourage you along the way.
