Do you ever feel like you were made for more? Like where you're at just isn't cutting it for you? Or you find yourself thinking, "this is IT??" more often than you'd like to admit? I've been there, and gurllllll it is not a very inspiring place to be!!
Spring of 2015, I convocated with my second degree. I was now considered a working professional and all that remained was securing a full time gig. Sounds exciting doesn't it?? But that wasn't what I was feeling, unfortunately. I felt a bit lost actually, unsure of my future and if I had actually chosen the right path. This was especially scary after having spent 6 years in University...
I LOVE teaching, don't get me wrong, but I just wasn't as jazzed up about getting a classroom position as most of my classmates. I felt like I had something different to offer the world, but I wasn't exactly sure what.
And then I found coaching. And I fell head over heels in love. And it hasn't been just a "honeymoon" feeling either. I've been actively building my online business for the last year WHILE teaching AND waitressing AND teaching group fitness, and I am still as in love with it as I was when I first dove in last February (even more so now actually!!)
So why am I posting this long rant about career choices and being made for more??
Because if someone hadn't posted it for me to see last year, I wouldn't have known this opportunity even existed and I would be trudging through my days without the sense of purpose and passion that I have now.
I wouldn't have been able to pay off my loan in full and save for multiple trips this year.
I wouldn't be surrounded by all of the amazing women I have come to call great friends.
I wouldn't have lost (and kept off) 10 lbs and feel as amazing as I do today.
I wouldn't wake up with a burning desire to make a positive imprint on the world - all from the comfort of my home, at my kitchen table in my robe just by sharing my health and fitness journey.
If you're still reading this post, I think it's time you reached out and joined me. You weren't made to just pay bills and die. There is SO much more to life and you have SO much more to offer! I promise. xo
