Welcome to Looking Forward Living Life.  I’m Kim Becking.  Speaker, author, coach and life thriver who truly believes that life’s inevitable challenges are an opportunity to pause and reinvent ourselves – not only surviving but thriving, even in the midst of unexpected change, challenges and adversity.

My own story of thriving is one that I can tell through many chapters – some expected, but others very much unexpected:  my battle with breast cancer at the age of 30; the demands of owning my own business; community advocacy; the balance of being a working mother; the unexpected challenges of marriage, family and divorce; having a second chance at love; remarrying a widower with two small children; and adjusting to a fabulous new life in a blended household as Kim Becking – mom of three, party of five.  No matter the challenge, I have continued to reinvent myself – always looking forward, living life and making every day count.

The unexpected is a part of life – whether it’s cancer, divorce, loss of a loved one, betrayal, a job transition or the dozens of other unplanned changes and hardships.  The unexpected can bring us to our knees.  But it can also make us stronger than we ever thought possible.  Growth rarely comes without pain. We just have to learn how to get through the pain so that we can move forward and transform our lives into an even better version of ourselves, not merely surviving, but thriving.  The unexpected can bring us great gifts that move us toward deeper clarity, wisdom and self awareness if we allow it.

My goal here is simple:  to provide you with practical tips and tools for thriving, even in the midst of unexpected change.

YOU, and only you, gets to write what will happen in your story after your unexpected experiences.  I will show you how to face your fears with hope and to bravely write your most awesome life chapters yet.

I can’t wait to see the be-YOU-tiful life waiting for the thriving you!

Kim
