go for it
Fitness and health have completely changed my life. Four years ago I was completely lost. I didn't know who I was, where I was going, and I was forty pounds heavier. Fresh out of college, I was in a body I wasn't confident in and with a Bachelor's Degree in writing that offered NO WORK. Discouraged, I worked many part time jobs trying to pay the bills as I watched my friends with business/nursing degrees land their dream jobs. Of course I was happy for them, but I felt like I was failing. I opted for graduate school for early childhood education because a teaching job felt like a safe bet. It was, and I landed a job as a preschool teacher.
All along the way, I kept blogging and posting about my health/fitness journey on various social media platforms. Instagram surprisingly took off. It's led me to virtually meet thousands of individuals and given me the opportunity to motivate. It's led me to opportunities I never thought possible and it's led me to work with amazing companies. I've found more joy in motivating other women and communicating with them through social media than I ever did at ANY job.
So, I took the steps towards gaining my personal trainer certification. I've been studying for the past five months. One more to go. I know that I want to help others be the best versions of themselves and to help them find self-love. I've never felt more fulfilled or confident in a decision. I'm taking the steps to start my own business, and that is something I NEVER thought I would do. I'm scared shitless. I think the next few months will be hard, scary, exciting, and testing, but I am giving it all I've got.
Like I've said... "If you're dreams don't scare you, they're not big enough."
