I sometimes sit and gawk at the sheer brilliance of my…well… brilliance. I mean, I’m pretty smart, even if I do say so myself. Which I do. Say so myself, that is. Anyways, not the point. I think that I am pretty good at self analyses. Maybe it’s the spreadsheet brain talking, but I love figuring out what makes me tick and what I can do to make me (tick) better. So with that said, I had this major revelation: I could totally be a life coach!
And friend, you don’t know it yet but you want me to be your life coach, believe me. I mean, for starters, five minutes into our session I’d probably tell you to go home and eat chocolate, because it would immediately make you feel better, which means 50% of my job is done and I didn’t even do any work yet. (Please, hold the applause). Here are some of my other brilliant Life Coach tactics that I am sure will change your life and blow your mind simultaneously:
I’ll make you tea
I’m not even joking. There is nothing that tea can’t fix. So, before our session, I’d fix you a cuppa and give you a minute of silence to inhale the calming aroma. Chances are, all of your “life problems” will probably magically realign itself into “life solutions” after the first sip. If not, I’ll apply steps 2 – 5 as per below. (But what are the chances, right? I mean, it’s TEA.)
I’ll play Adele
Before I even get to asking the questions and doing the actual ‘life coaching’ I would play some Adele for you. I know you’re probably not asking me why, because EVERYBODY knows that Adele is the queen of making you catch feelings. And I need you to be rolling in the deep, if you know what I mean.
I’ll give you a blanket
Right after the tea and during the Adele, I would throw a blankey on you because fluffy blankets are life and they make you feel warm and mushy inside and they basically make you want to be a better person. Your fluffy blanket will set you at ease, thus giving me free access to your mental space. I know. Genius.
I’ll ask the questions
Okay, here’s where things get real. I would get right in there, holding nothing back on the ‘questions asking’ front. I would ask things like: “which Spice Girl was your favorite” and “but is Elvis really dead?” Important questions. Questions that will make you dig deep down into your innermost, to help you better understand yourself.
I’ll give you homework
I figured that homework is a pretty good way to end a session because I want you to go home and think about what you did. I’d also probably expect you to watch a few episodes of Grey’s Anatomy, just to keep you feeling as many emotions as possible.
