Hello, My friends. It is time to farewell this decade and welcome a new one. For me, It has been a decade filled with new loves a name change, new people to meet, sad goodbyes, and happy hello’s.
The new decade of the twenty’s promises to be the most interesting so far. This is the decade of Linda learning to live with authenticity. I’m sure we’ll have fun growing on this journey.
A little bit about me, I am Linda Codlin, I live in New Zealand, I am married, with four adult children, each following their own path. I grew up in a little town at the base of a dormant volcano. With great dreams and happyish memories, I embarked on my adult adventure. There was so much to discover.
I chose to live my life by the rules of those around me. Like a chameleon changing colours to match it’s environment, I also tried changing to match my environment, trying to be the perfect wife, the perfect mother, and whatever was asked of me, I tried to fulfill it.
After quite a few years of trying to control everyone and everything I was tired and burnt out. I started reading self help books to fix me, maybe they had the answer to my questions of “Who am I?” “Where do I fit in the scheme of things?” “Is this all there is to life?” I devoured the pages, hungry for change, wanting a better me, a me that had peace, confidence and prosperity. These books helped, but I was still unsettled, feeling like I was living my life for everyone else. No inner peace, my confidence shattered, I couldn’t hold any of it together and eventually my life began to unravel….
Which has led me to the woman I am today, I am by no means perfect and sometimes I’m not even put together straight, I’m on my journey of inner discovery, I’m not broken, I never was. The blueprint I was following belonged to someone else and would never fit me. I’m allowing my inner voice to be my guide, she knows me better than anyone else, she wants the best for me, she knows how to motivate me when I’m feeling blah, she celebrates with me when I have a win, no matter how small.
Together, (My Inner lady and me), one thought at a time, one feeling at a time and one action at a time we are creating the life I have always dreamed of living.
If like me, you want more than you’ve got, and are willing to do some things you’ve never done before to get a result you’ve never had.
Join me on this journey, You are not broken and don’t need fixing, together we can create the lives of our wildest dreams. Each week I’ll be sharing topics and stories on how we can live our most authentic lives, designed for a one of a kind woman, to be a one of a kind woman, no clones, authentic living with Linda.
See You next time my friends.
