If you saw the title, you may be thinking, "Alright, Charis, what's this magical six-month question all about?" Well, buckle up because this is a game-changer.

Picture this: you're stuck in a situation. You know what you want, but you're playing mental tug-of-war. Why? Because you're scared. You are scared of what might happen if you go for what you want. Now, let's simplify this. Imagine you've got just six months left to live. Yup, that's it. Now, fast forward to the end of those six months. What decision would you regret not making? What would you look back on and wish you'd done? Or flip it: what decision would you regret making?

I get it; life's a pile of responsibilities, obligations, and reasons that complicate decisions. But this six-month scenario? It cuts through all the fog. It strips away the excuses and fears and forces you to face what you truly desire.

Now, I'm not saying throw all responsibility out the window. If you follow me or have been drawn to me, you're probably already highly responsible and driven. Yet, you may need a nudge to loosen up a bit, relax into your life, and stop putting so much pressure on yourself.

When I faced this question, it was like a tidal wave of clarity. It presented me with a permission slip to do what I wanted, even if it scared me. And you know what? It changed everything. Seriously, I can't even put into words the impact it had.

So, here's the deal. Remember this six-month question. This is not just some fluffy exercise; it's a truth serum. It shows you what you're truly made of and what you truly desire. And yeah, getting clear is one thing; following through, that can be terrifying.

But guess what? You're not alone. I'm here, ready to lend a hand to support you on this journey. If I resonate with you, check out my Busy to Balanced program here. And if you're thinking, "Hey, I could use some one-on-one focus," I've got a couple of spots open this fall for private coaching. Contact me here and let's chat.

I don't want you drowning in regrets. I want you to live a life that ignites your soul and lightens your load. Let's make it happen together.

“The bad news is time flies. The good news is you're the pilot.”
