When we began this journey BACK across the country, it started with the purging of personal items and household goods. This is our 3rd move in 4 years and with each move we have tried to purge so that it would be easier to pack and unpack. Each time before I have always felt a sense of sadness or remorse because I had to let go of things I felt I needed.
Not this time. This time I felt a sense of relief, as if weight had been lifted from my chest. This was a new sensation for me. I have always seen things and wanted them, thinking that having them made my life more complete or added happiness to it.
Boy was I wrong. As I was purging things I realized just how ridiculous it was for me to hold on the things I NEVER see let alone use routinely. I got donated so many items of clothing and so many purses and shoes along with household décor and goods that I had no real use for.
Don’t get me wrong, I still have a lot of clothes and I still enjoy buying them!!! I also love having my “pretties” in my home. I just realized that I don’t NEED them. I am able to have them, enjoy them, but not need them.
Having this epiphany was amazing!! It was so freeing. For so long I have always wanted things, hoping they would help me to feel complete. If I have that house, or have that outfit, or bag, or all the décor in the magazines, then my life will be complete. My life will be happy and filled. NOPE!!!!
Once I experienced these thoughts, feelings, and emotions I wondered, “what has changed?”
I am married to the most amazing husband in the world, I have the greatest kids a mom could ask for, I have a beautiful home, I am working towards my goal of becoming a counselor. My life is amazing!!! What has changed?
BECOMING A COACH!!!! That is the change in my life that has apparently helped to fulfill me. Being a coach has completed something that I have been looking for, for a long time!!
I love helping people. I love being able to help others become happy with their own lives. Helping them find a peace inside and out!! My PASSION (outside my family) is this!!!
Beachbody has afforded me this opportunity! Getting messages about how I inspire and motivate by posting my videos helps me know I am on the right path! Knowing that I am motivating people to get up and take care of their bodies is amazing!!!
