what’s that… a light at the end of the tunnel?

At the risk of sounding cliche, I am starting to get the feeling that the universe is pointing me in the positive direction I want to go in. Placing opportunities in front of me to help me stumble towards the next step. I have been lucky enough to meet with someone (we’ll call him Josh) who has lit the first fire in my belly to make a move towards change. He gave me amazing words of encouragement and support and then pointed me in the direction of two women I should talk to who could also help me with my vision to make fitness more than just a way a life…. to make it a career. And tonight I was blessed enough to meet with two brilliant women who were willing to talk about their personal journeys, and the hurdles they had to overcome to make fitness their lifestyle and careers. These fantastic women were willing to meet with a complete stranger to give words of support and answer all my questions, and even help allay my fears and doubts. I feel like I’m on top of the world!

And further to the point of the universe placing these people in my life, I went to get a haircut today from my stylist (of 15 years) and he told me that he might not be cutting hair for much longer. He said he had been studying to be a personal trainer and that he was focused on phasing hair styling out of his life and making personal training his fulltime focus. Not great for my hair situation, but so exciting to talk to him about how I want to do the same. And heck, if he could do it at 47, I could do it 39!

Wow, I’m just so full of gratitude right now! And hopeful… for the first time in a long time. Maybe I can do this. Just maybe I can walk away from a corporate job that is draining my soul and move towards something that not only helps me… but would help others as well! I could make fitness my lifestyle and do something positive…

My head is swimming with ideas and excitement…. but where to begin?

Seems that continuing my own workouts while getting certified is the next step. But there are so many options with where to get certified, and everyone has a different opinion. It’s overwhelming! Must do some reading and deciding…
