In my absence, I hope that your holiday seasons went well and that all of your new year's started off with a bang! I've certainly had a very busy time these last couple of months. You see, I've been in the process of completely changing my life, in almost every way. This rather dramatic decision wasn't made overnight, yet was deliberated over very carefully for about a year.
I had a change of heart, in that I felt I was losing passion for my job. I had a change of body, as my health continued to devolve into an ever-changing unsolved mystery, and I had to make some real evaluations of what my day-to-day life will be like from now until modern medicine catches up with me. I had a change of perspective from my circumstances and started making honest, big decisions about the things I wanted from life and from myself. This is what we call being a grown-up. This is what being a real live adult is like. This is the real world. None of this was easy.
I traveled across the country from a location that I dearly loved, to a place where I've never lived, I have no friends (but am close to family) and I have no job. The only thing I have to cling to right now is the hope that as rough as it seems, I am on a path to fulfilling my own goals and living a less stressful life. This has taken a lot of faith in myself and whatever else may be helping me out there.
Since I got here, I have chosen more roads to travel down. I will begin working towards a life that I am passionate about, as I study health and fitness on a professional level. I hope to take all that I've learned from these rocky years of nutrition and health and build upon them so I can help others in person, not just via blog. But don't worry, I'm not abandoning you! I love writing here, and though sometimes I may be absent because of what gets thrown my way, I'll never leave.
I hope that all of you have started your year off well, with good intentions and positive feelings. Even though I am in a place of transition, I feel mentally stronger approaching my new journey. This is my little Me 2.0 adventure. It's never too early or too late to make changes in your life either. And if you don't think you've got what it takes, I scoff! Allergics and GF peeps are some of the strongest people I know ;)
