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!
