Podcast: Your Dream Or Mine

Updated: May 22, 2023

Kate Oakley Your Dream or Mine podcast

On a happiness scale of 1 to 10 where are you on a day to day basis?

Do you feel you deserve to be right up there at 8 and above or are you settling for a 5 on a good day?

I know many mid-life women who answer 2 to the first question and who feel a 5/10 would be incredible. 8 and above doesn’t even register. 😔

But why is that ok? Why shouldn’t every woman be an 8 most days of the week? Or at least aspire to that? With even the odd 9 or 10 thrown in?

I’ve always been sure I deserve to be happy, which is one of the main reasons why I left my 25-year career in HR behind to become a Personal Trainer, aged 50.

I thought to myself, ‘what’s the BEST that can happen?’ from making this huge change, rather than focusing on the worst case scenario. And happily, that approach paid off! 😊

I realise that makes the pursuit of happiness and dreams sound simple, when of course, I appreciate it really isn’t. However, I do believe that sometimes it can be us that stand in our way, rather than external factors.

I was flattered to be invited recently as a guest on the inspiring podcast ‘Your Dream or Mine’ with @thedreamtransitionmentor

Laura too has made big changes in her life in pursuit of happiness and has even written a book on the subject; ‘Dream it AND do it!’

Please go have a listen. I’m hoping in some small way it may help one of you to make that change you know is needed to be happy.

Or it may help you to have the right conversation with a friend who is feeling only a 2 out of 10 on that happiness scale.

I’d love to know what you think of it and if it raised anything for you.

What’s the best that can happen? 😉
