Moving Forward

"Before I can tell my life what I want to do 
with it, I must listen to my life 
telling me who I am, to the truths and values
at the heart of my own identity."
~ Parker J. Palmer

After finally admitting that I wasn't happy with my current goal and then accepting that I am exactly where I'm supposed to be (read original post here), I've decided to focus on getting my creativity back & finding my "passion." And with a new month just barely begun & the start of autumn, change is practically a prerequisite of the season.

I signed up for Onward & Upward - a 6 week online workshop that will help me identify the GREAT WORK that brings the most joy to my life & work toward making it a larger part of my life. It began on Monday & so far so good.

I just started reading this book & am HOOKED. Kris Carr is funny, smart & inspiring. Part of being back at square one means a renewed focus on my health.

Last night, I started my couch to 5k program (you may remember that I did this last year as well. But after I completed it, I just stopped running). Normally, I hop on the treadmill, but since its currently not working, I had to take to the road & it was incredible. The fresh air, the cool breeze, & being surrounded by trees & leaves. Why didn't I do this before? Coupled with my Pure Barre classes & a healthier "diet," I intend to get back into shape.

Life is good. Thanks for stopping by.
