So lately I’ve been struggling within myself about what I want to do with my life. For nine years I’ve been in retail and for roughly the three last years I have worked under the precedence that I knew I didn’t want to go back into retail management (as I stepped down from my position when I made the move to Nashville to be with the beau), but I was comfortable and didn’t want to make a big change that could affect my finances. So I stuck with the job as it paid the bills, has quality insurance, and was flexible with my schedule. But only for those reasons, as I wasn’t happy within myself. I wanted more from my work, and to feel like what i was doing was making a difference…and truth be told, it wasn’t.
At the end of the day, that was saying I was scared to make a move.
In the past week, I am glad to say that I have crossed that hurdle that has scared me. I haven’t quit my job mind you, as I still need that job to pay for my future. But I have ultimately decided on what it is I want to pursue and now have a rough plan on how I want to get there.
The first big obstacle was getting over my insecurity and worry concerning upheaving my finances, and thanks to my beau, quite a bit of reading, and some self-motivation, I am finally secure in pursuing a new path.
I’m a big believer in not jinxing an idea before it gets off the ground, so I’m not going to document the changes until it happens. But I know without a doubt that I want to work within the fitness industry. I’m currently researching some schooling, and working on practical things I can do for myself to help cement and motivate me along the way.
So wish me luck as I start this new grand adventure. I’m truly excited about this new chapter, and hope you all with come along for the ride with me!
Best of luck in whatever you’re going to do in the fitness industry!
Thanks man! I appreciate it! Gonna be working hard 🙂
good luck urkel!!
im sure being in fitness is much more rewarding than being in the retail industry…(i’ve had my share of that)…

No jinxing, you hit it right on. ^^ as I knew you would. lol
