About Laura

My name is Laura Longley. I am a woman in mid-life on a spiritual journey. I changed careers several years ago from software development to counseling and coaching – a choice that much better suited me. In this process I identified my purpose as “I use my wisdom and knowledge to help others grow, while continuing to learn and grow myself.”

My current phase of growth is around authenticity and love. I had a transformative experience in November, 2011 (see my first post for details: https://blueheronwisdom.wordpress.com/2012/03/15/my-authentic-experience-in-new-york-the-beginning-of-the-rest-of-my-life/) which has jumped me forward in my growth and evolution.  I now see my purpose as “I help others be happier through living a more authentic life.”  This is more specific both in the outcome as well as how it is achieved.

My first intention in this blog is to speak my truth, to be open and authentic about who I am and what I’m up to.  Much of my life has been spent monitoring and censoring what I say based on how I think it will be received.  My practice (and believe me, it is practice, not perfect) now is to say what is true for me with love and compassion.

My second hope is that my own journey and process may help, inspire or encourage someone else along their own path.
