I sit. I think. A lot. Well, maybe I don’t really sit, but regardless my mind is always moving, planning, dreaming. My professional life is evolving and I am making some positive changes, and am finally pursuing some longer term goals that have been idling away in my mind. I have my personal set backs but continue educating myself about nutrition & health. I am in the physical shape that allows me to keep up with an energetic toddler and I put in a lot of work to achieve fitness goals I set for myself both short and long term. My personal life is genuinely happy and I try to wake up each day in a good mood, excited for what the day holds. I see myself as an optimist and try to limit (but deal with!) any “bad moments” that creep up on me.
However, I saw the quote above on Instagram (because Instagram is the greatest place to visualize your life!) and have been ruminating on it for weeks. No joke. Weeks! Since I had Dekker over 2 years ago and started on my journey to whole-health, I really have never “gone back.” If there’s a bump in the road and I make a mistake, I learn from it and move forward. I consciously make an effort to learn from the obstacles I have left behind while remaining true to myself. I am grateful that I am now making the time (and have created an amazing opportunity!) in my professional life to further my knowledge and teach others.
Life is going to move forward whether you want it to or not. You can keep up and enjoy it, or you can watch as it passes you by. I am at the place in my life where it is only going to get better and I’ll be running alongside it, gathering others as I go!
