The Year I Chose ME

We hear it time and time again.

"I hate my job"

"I'm so tired all the time"

"When will I ever have time for me?" 

The reality is, no one's going to make time for you, except YOU. No one's going to make your job more fulfilling or exciting, except you. Or better yet, no one's going to make the decision to say I can do better than this and actually quit your job. No one's going to give you back those extra hours of sleep, unless you make it a priority.

This is the year I truly began to realize, the decisions and answers to all these questions start with me. I wanted to make a change, but I knew in order to make that change I couldn't do it on my own. I had to make an investment, an investment in myself. 

So for the first time in my life, I started doing just that. I joined a female leadership group called Inner Glow Circle, enrolled in their life coach training program, hired a life coach, enrolled in a very prestigious 9-month program to become a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (a program I had been looking at for over a year), and most importantly started my own online nutrition counseling business, Nourished Abundance :) 

I realized this was the year I was going to stop doubting my greatness and start living my passion. 

As someone who doubted myself constantly, always had a difficult time making decisions, and frequently found comfort in "playing it safe", I can honestly say the start of this year was the first time a truly stood up for me and what I believed in. Because deep down inside, my true passion and desire was and is to help people reach their health and wellness goals and seize a life full of abundance, I couldn't deny that desire to spread that love and support with all of you. 

So ask you this - What is your passion? What makes you so incredibly happy it brings a smile to your face to even think about it? What are your goals and your desires? What gets you out of bed in the morning? 

If you don't know the answers to these questions, I urge you to truly take the time to figure out what it is that makes you feel alive. Most people would use their first blog post to promote their business, but my real call to action is asking you to figure out your WHY.

Because if you know your why, it will help inspire action, your why will give life meaning, your why will make you want to get out of bed every morning and live the life you deserve. And if you don't know your why, I am always here to support you and help you figure that out ;) 

In Abundant Health,
