“Yoga is like music: the rythm of the the body, the melody of the mind, and the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life.” – B.K.S. Lyengar
Ladies and Gentleman I present to you a new chapter of my life. It seems like we are constantly growing, moving forward in life (most of us) with the next best adventure or even the next challenge we could never imagine would arise.Let’s face it, time passes by whether we go with the flow or try to resist. I have learned a lot about myself in 2016. I made the decision (for myself) in the beginning of the year that I was going to simply COMMIT. There were some goals I set and I was not going to give up when things don’t “go my way.” Does this sound familiar? It’s so easy to set a goal and then when you don’t see results talk yourself down and eventually just give up. Well…not this year, this is not the case. I dialed into my workouts and promised myself I would find a new job. I was going to work everyday not loving it, not loving the people or the energy the brought into my life. Little did I know this was draining my personal life and limiting my expectation for myself. You always hear the saying, “Surround yourself with greatness and you will be great.”….Well, in this case it was the total opposite! The majority of my day was spent with people who also hated their jobs, and weren’t satisfied with their life- so I literally woke up one day, and I made a choice to change it. I spent a few months searching for a new career (waaaay harder than I thought), going on a couple interviews only to be rejected but low and behold a great opportunity came up. Literally, overnight. Phone interview Thursday, in person Friday, Offer on Monday. I thought to myself, “Is this real?!” haha, yes it was REAL! I am naturally a busy person, but I can’t tell you how much a change of everyday environment has not only made me feel lighter in regards to stress, less emotionally drained and just happier to go to work everyday. How is this possible that I lasted so long in this negative situation. If this is you, wake up! There is better out there.
The moral of the story: Believe in yourself. Talk yourself up instead of down and really create a vision for what it is exactly that you want. If you want a new career, decide what it is that you want and what it is that you’re willing to put forth in honor of obtaining this change. Use your resources and know that it is possible to have a job that doesn’t feel like work! Out with the old, in with the new. Life is too short to not wake up and be happy everyday!
