Before the courses, I was happy with my lot in life. I had a cute girlfriend, a pretty good job, a good car and I was co-existing pretty well with my parents while also enjoying my martial arts training. But there was always that nagging feeling that there was more to it, even to this tidy little picture. I knew I was having bouts with depression, I knew that I wasn’t as happy as I could be, and I also knew that there were things going on in my life that just didn’t fit. My girlfriend and I had lots of fights. I didn’t love my job…and I complained a lot about it, in fact. While I was enjoying my martial arts training, I knew that I could tap deeper into that potential.
Maria McCoy Baird started working with me privately to get my life in order. She helped me to sit back and take a look at myself. My self. Was I really, truly 100% happy with where I was? Did I really want to have arguments on a near-daily basis, did I want to wake up secretly hating myself, did I want to staywith a job that I basically hated deep down? And more importantly: what exactly did I want in my life, and how could I get it instead of complaining all the time about what wasn’t going right, and what I didn’t have?
Now, I’ve been studying Maria Baird’s courses for five years. My relationship with myself has been stellar. I wake up greeting my world with a smile; a genuine one, finally. I have at long last been able to start building the career of my dreams. I have been now teaching martial arts for the past four years, mainly working with children, which is a new-found passion I never knew I had. I am also teaching between two schools in California that are a part of a large and wonderful association of talented and genuinely great martial artists. I can easily say, “I love my job,” because it doesn’t feel like something I have to do. It’s something that I want, no, desire, to do. My relationship with the people around me has improved significantly and generally, my outlook on life is quite positive.
All in all, I can confidently say that it has been through Maria McCoy Baird’s kind guidance that I actually have a life right now. A life of enjoyment, still with it’s ups and downs, but now with the tools to handle them. Thank you, for giving my life back to me, placing it back in the hands it belongs; my own.
