Unfortunate circumstances in 2004 had me looking for a job that included medical insurance. The girls were luckily being covered by the states healthy kids program, thank goodness. I was just beginning my search when a letter came in the mail from my dad. Inside there was a help wanted add. Wow...was he psychic or something? No one even knew I had started looking. The add read...Fitness specialist, Colby-Sawyer College. Hours were 6am-2pm. The rest is history. He now says, he just thought it sounded like me.
I have enjoyed the work I have done, the classes I have taught, the members I have met, the amazing co-workers I was blessed to hang with, the inspiring students, and the clients whom have helped me grow. From all of these people(you!) I have learned valuable lessons: determination and drive, loss and love, heartbrake and hope, strength and support, compassion, kindness, faith....patience and integrity, the taking of chances, the following of instincts, the concept of letting go.
I have decided to turn the corner to the unknown, create a new path, begin a new season.
I will be ending my employment at CSC on June 30.... I am scared, I am excited, I am nervous, I am confident.
From all the lessons I have learned, I am realizing that life is to be lived from the heart. Passions are to be pursued, happiness is to be had. Impact is to be made, knowledge is to be shared.
I am venturing into the arena of self-employment. Counting on myself, and sharing my story.
Everyone who knows me, has been part of this journey, and I thank you from the deepest part of my heart. I am amazed at how much love my heart can hold, and how much love is bursting out waiting to be shared.
Please know that this new adventure will continue to include training, drumming, playing, relaxing, accepting, understanding, sharing, assisting, coaching and supporting...for this is who I am.
My Leap into Life will kick off with my very first retreat. It will be held at Nurture through Nature in Maine...It will include the lessons I have learned, The tools I have used...the activities that help us grow. If you are interested in joining me, feel free to contact me. firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here to change...embrace the fear and pursue your passion.
