Progress in Relationships

Dear Progress,

We have been looking deeply at the way I do relationships and though they are challenging for me you have helped me see another way.

I have to be honest that this is one of the most difficult parts about my journey with you Progress.  You hold a mirror up to a lot of situations in my life and challenge me to better.  In every relationship, I have taken time to listen more than I speak.  I have taken time to reflect on what is being said and how would I feel if I were in the same situation.

The most important relationships I had to look at this week is my relationship with myself, my husband, my child, and God.  It’s been a real kick in the pants

The biggest lesson I had to learn is that even though I want someone to respond a certain way in our relationship doesn’t mean that they will.  The even bigger kick is being vulnerable to say that my expectation wasn’t met.

My son has been the best lesson giver and I think God intended it that way.  He holds a big light in my dark places and says with childlike faith

“Mommy, did you ever think that maybe we feel different?”

Mind blown honestly.  What do you mean you feel different? How can that be?  You are my son…  I have all these thoughts and different internal dialogue and realize that we all feel different about things.  Just because I know one aspect of you doesn’t mean I know every aspect of you.  I really had to go from humiliation to humility in about .5 seconds because my son needed me to change my point of view to see him differently and see the situation we faced differently.  Was this easy absolutely not!  However, totally worth it!


Progress, you did it again.  You changed me from head knowledge to heart knowledge.  Thanks so much for this invaluable lesson.


Til’ next time,

Hello, my name is Krys Grant-Ray and I am a Christian Transformational Life Coach. Yes, that is a mouth full, isn't it? I have used my coaching training and my relationship with God to switch focus from changing a thought or action to true transformation. My focus is helping you find the optimum space for authentic transformation from the inside out. Put a magnifying glass up to the mundane cycle of your life that you sucked out passion while you seek out what you want. Rediscover who you really are and what you were put on this earth to do. Let go of the daily grind we all get stuck in. I continually challenge you to think outside of the box you were taught in. Together we seek a better way to become the best version of who you are. I do this through an 8- step process of shifting focus, investing in what you believe in, building a foundation that supports consistent positive growth. Finally, you will learn how to grow in the restful periods of life and then know when to move on to the next step. This transformational process gets you out of comfort zone and into your thriving zone. It is a wonderful and creative place that you need to visit daily. Together you and I will map out your thoughts in a way that works specifically for you. Let’s open your world to clear and vivid images that you can put into words. From those words you will find authentic self-expression; ultimately discovering your uniqueness and experience geniune truth and beauty.
