I am a retired RN. It's been a difficult transition for me, but Lisbeth has helped me to understand that it's okay to let go of my self-identity as an RN. I'm not "there" yet, but the tapping and other tools I have learned in Lisbeth's class, combined with the support I received from my classmates and "soul sisters," has helped me get down to the source of my fear of letting go of that part of myself. I feared I was nothing if not a nurse.
15 years ago, I went through an episode of major depression. I also had a recently-diagnosed physical disability, and had been told I would never be able to work again. I woke up every morning thinking, "Who am I, if not a nurse?"
In 2002, against all odds, I was able to return to work. I worked for eleven more years.
The transition I am in now is much the same - who am I, if not a nurse? Although I still have my moments, my path forward has become clearer for me due to Lisbeth's "NurseBoss" course. Even though I may no longer work as a nurse, I am the boss and creator of the rest of my life. Lisbeth taught me that.
Over the last two months, Lisbeth has helped me realize how vitally important my passions are to me. I have learned, through her course, that my passions are not just hobbies - my passions reflect my soul. My passions are who I am now. Gardening, raising butterflies, animal rescue, writing and so much more!
