LifeCoaching with Neelambika Kasad: Is your life fulfilling?

Is your life fulfilling?

People do not usually come to coaches asking for fulfillment. Most people seek a coach to achieve something specific such as to find a better job or to improve a relationship or to reduce stress. But all of them are seeking a more fulfilling life.

Unfulfilling life choices sap you of energy and joie de vivre. You feel hopelessly stuck in a very unhappy place. In contrast, when you live a life of fulfillment, you experience being alive and whole.

A fulfilled life

High school in the US with the World Exchange Program

Twenty-six years ago, two best friends in Belgium had an idea – a cross-cultural exchange between high school students in Belgium and the US with local families hosting students. At the time, one of them, Olivier Joris had already started to invite young Americans to Belgium for a semester or yearlong student exchanges. He himself had been an exchange student at high school in Massachusetts and had loved the adventure of exploring and discovering a different way of experiencing the world.

A Few Minutes Of Creative Stillness

My mother draws a Kolam every morning at the front door. A ritual, that I remember her doing ever since my first memories. And I have rarely seen her miss a day so far.

It is hard to describe what a Kolam is in a language which cannot capture its cultural nuance. Kolam is an artistic pattern drawn on the floor usually in front of the house or near an altar. It is usually drawn with dry rice flour and sometimes with a powder made of a particular stone. In some parts of India it is called Rangoli.

2014 - With a Perspective; Shirin Rizvi Hasan

2014 has been a year of change for my family, and me both professionally and personally. Some good and some not so good, but change is what leads to growth. Change can be intimidating for some, but for others it is welcome, whether planned or unplanned. And whether you expected it or not, you have to learn how to deal with it, make it your own, and spin it to keep going forward.

My mind is stuck between screaming good riddance to a year that has troubled me or bidding a grateful adieu to a year that has taught me many things I couldn’t even have dreamt of achieving.

One part of me didn’t want to confront the troubles life threw at me; on the other hand, I am immensly happy knowing how much I have changed for the better.
