A certain static and energy hung over the air today. Today was a big day. A day of many new beginnings. Today marked the first day of my last semester of graduate classes. Two years ago I made the choice to leave a fulfilling career and enter graduate school full time. Now, here I am-looking for a job again. Looking for the next big adventure.
Another new beginning happened today. I found out while away on my trip that I was chosen as a Sweat Pink Ambassador (SPA). To me, it is an honor to be a SPA. It reminded me of why I started this blog, and how much I enjoy mentoring in so many areas of my life including my personal lifestyle. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with others about fitness, health and well being.
I started this block to hopefully inspire others, specifically women, to live a healthy lifestyle rich in fitness, all natural eating, and balance. Being a Sweat Pink Ambassador allows me to continue to do this, however hopefully I will reach and inspire more women.
Additionally, in the past few months as my blog has grown, I have sufficiently neglected it. I have put on the back burner many things that would help with the growth. For instance, passing along on my facebook page informational articles on health and wellness that I read. (Here’s my shameless plug: follow me on Facebook and you can read interesting articles). As many of us bloggers know, this takes time. I even asked myself today if I still wanted to put in the effort. I didn’t even hesitate in thinking-yes, I love this. It’s not a job, or chore it’s enjoyable. So, here’s to new beginnings-putting more effort into something I love.
My last new beginning today is starting a month of life coaching. I won a free month of the online course “Fulfill Your Year” over at OneMominMaine. I don’t think this could have come at a better time for me-the year I turn 30, finish a master’s, get a job, start a new career, move. I want to take time to reflect on myself-who I am, what I want, where I am going-to ensure that the major decisions I make are the best for me. In addition, I want to continue living every adventure in life. I don’t want to stop pushing the limits of myself physically and mentally. I don’t want to stop exploring because quite frankly I want 30 to be the best decade yet!
So, cheers to new beginnings. New efforts, new adventures.
Any new milestones or adventures in your life this year?
Bloggers out there-how do you find time for all of the posting, including social media? I get so overwhelmed with all of the social media out there and it gets too overstimulating. Luckily I don’t have a fancy phone so I’m not on Instagram. Jeesh-that would be one more thing.
Anyone tried a life coach before? I didn’t think I would ever need something like this, but I am really looking forward to exploring myself through creativity.
