It's time to rebuilding. Renewal. Strength. Energy. It's time to stand up in the face of adverse times and say that "I am worth it!" It is time to let the sun set on this phase of my life and walk into the next chapter. I don't need to wait until January 1st. TRUE change happens now.
I know that it is difficult---trust me I know. Our lives are about so much more than the foods we eat or about the clothes we wear. My soul is being pulled in a direction that scares me sometimes, but I am finally learning to face fear (REAL FEAR) and just go for it. If I fall---I fall, but I will be damned--I'm gonna try.
I recieved the most wonderful email this morning. It was hidden in my box somehow and it just lit my heart up (you know who you are) and it reminded me of the interconnectedness of us all. How intertwined we are with others. It's a beautiful thing.
Speaking of connection...I know that I mentioned a while ago that I was studying for my Certified Personal Training cert. Well, I am and I take my exam at the end of January. Once completed...rather than start an on-line personal training site for pay, initally I will work with 2 women at a time and train them (by distance) for free. It's something that has been on my heart for soooooooooooo long. I know the despair that comes with being overweight and being "into" unhealthy foods and the hopelessness of not being able to control it. So, my gift back to the universe and the lovely loyal readers of my sporadic blog, will be to hold a Contest and to choose two women at a time (maybe 3) to participate. Thoughts? Am I crazy? Everyone keeps telling to make MONEY MONEY MONEY. And although, I am dead broke, I dont' want to charge for that service just yet....I truly don't.
Drumroll please........... I successfully completed my Master's Thesis and defended it at the prestigious Penn State University!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It took me 5 years and although I thought it would NEVER get done....here I stand ready to walk about the stage. I have never been more proud of myself.
I am standing at the foot of my own sunrise. Are you ready to stand at the foot of yours?
