What would your life look like if you could feel truly free?
What if you could feel radiantly beautiful inside and out?
What if you could go after what you REALLY dream of?
What if you woke up everyday excited for what’s ahead because you were living your purpose?
I’m Kelly Maher and I’m a transformational life coach. I found my way to coaching through looking for my own path to freedom. For me freedom used to be all about what was going on outside of me. And I spent years searching for it “out there.”
I traveled and took French lessons. I learned to play the guitar and banjo and took pottery classes. I went kayaking, ran a couple marathons and went to every concert I could get tickets for. And while I had a blast and learned a tremendous amount about what I enjoy doing; after all of this exploring and doing I still felt stuck. I thought I would feel free, yet I still felt like something was missing.
And then it happened. My whole world turned upside down. What I realized was that the freedom I was searching for was actually right there all along – inside me. So I shifted my journey inward and in time figured out that what I really desired was the freedom to be me. To feel confident. To realize my worth and to trust myself. I understood that this was what freedom was all about.
At Kelly Maher Coaching, we’re all about feeling happy, beautiful, free and adventurous. Let’s start with how we define each word:
A simple yet powerful word, right? To me happiness is a mind-set. It starts with choosing to be happy and choosing thoughts that create a positive perception. It’s not about feeling elated all the time but rather living in the present moment and feeling peaceful and content.
Vibrant. Radiant. Glowing. You may even have your own word for beautiful. And when you embody it and really feel it, it’s truly powerful. Feeling beautiful is both an inside and an outside job. It’s about your thoughts and your belief systems…especially regarding what you think about yourself. Feeling beautiful is also about accepting your gorgeous self just as you are.
Beauty also comes from nourishing yourself and moving your body. Vibrancy and radiance come from lovingly caring for your body – eating nutritious foods and finding ways to move that you enjoy.
What does it mean to be free? Well, it starts with knowing that you are safe to fully embrace who you really are. I’ve learned that feeling free stems from the realization that you can create the life you desire. That you don’t have to follow a conventional path – you get to choose how to live based on your deep desires. A big part of feeling free is letting go and diving in! Knowing that it’s ok to take risks and it’s also ok to make mistakes along the way.
Adventure is all about exploration and discovery and it begins with choosing to become more of you. Leaning into and saying yes to what you really want. Being adventurous also requires getting out of your comfort zone – this may mean in a far off place or maybe even in your own city or town. When you add adventure to your life, you’ll be amazed at how it will make you see everything with new eyes. Your quest starts today!
