Those of you who know me know I’m in a busy season of life. But, I’ve felt like I’ve been doing so much, but not doing much well. My time hasn’t been spent where my heart wants to be and I realized a few months ago that in my daily hustle, I seemed to have forgotten about myself.
That happens to all of us sometimes, doesn’t it?
I was feeling sluggish, my anxiety was starting to come back, I felt exhausted all the time. I was unfulfilled, wishing I could spend more time with my family and yearning to do something more meaningful. I was in pretty bad shape and it was starting to show physically, mentally and emotionally.
Something had to change.
I knew I had to take a hard look at myself and do something. Even just finding time to do that was difficult. I started taking better care of myself, my time and my energy, made better choices and gave myself some grace.
As this was happening, a friend of mine shared a post where she unknowingly seemed to be singing my song, describing everything I had been feeling. I knew it was a sign that we needed to connect. I reached out and it happened that she knew about a great opportunity for me with Beachbody. Having done a few of their programs before, I knew this was something I could do. And as a coach, I would be held accountable for taking better care of myself, would be connected with a team of others looking to improve their health, be able serve others, and even be able to spend more time with my family. How could I resist?
Since beginning this journey, I’ve been so motivated by the prospects it holds. I’ve already been feeling better and more focussed.
Please join me in my excitement on this new venture as I work to be the best I can be so I can be at my best for others. This includes being able to spend quality time with my family, being healthy enough to enjoy them at this stage in our lives and as we grow, and setting a good example through caring for others and taking care of not only my body but also the life and everything in it that I’ve been blessed with.
