Now to you, that may just seem like another day. Or the day before New Year's Ever. Or one of the last days of your holidays. But to me, it's a pretty special day.
On December 30th, 2013 I quit a job that was making me miserable. After an awful 4 hours at that job (where I cried for another hour in the car afterward) I decided to make a HUGE shift in my life and quit.
I didn't have another job lined up.
I didn't have heaps of money saved.
I wasn't really sure what I was going to do.
I just quit and knew that I would make it work.
And on the evening of December 30, 2013 I danced my tail off with Corbin in celebration of leaving my job and the endless possibility that awaited me in 2014.
I wrote down goals for myself and I'm proud to say that I accomplished many of them including performing, booking a commercial (2 in fact!), signing with an agent, creating balance, actively working on important relationships in my life, traveling and feeling great while nourishing my body.
I had no idea that 2014 would be the year that I would finally finish Insanity, become a Beachbody Coach and go back to helping others create healthier and more fulfilling lives.
As a result of the changes in my life, 2015 looks like a pretty exciting year ahead and I've been enjoying the act of setting intentions and goals for the year to come. I know that there will be more performing, more balance, more travel (including a trip to Florida next week!) and helping more people.Each day I work towards nourishing my body and for the first time, working out has really become a part of my daily routine.
I feel happy and excited; long gone are the days of crying in a bathroom stall because my job is making me so unhappy.
This year I'll be celebrating December 30th with a trip to the Nutcracker and some fun planning for New Year's Eve. Tomorrow I'll be enjoying brunch with friends, catching a World Juniors hockey game and ringing in the New Year with my love at a very fun show.
I know that I had a whole show entitled "The Difference a Year Makes" but that sentiment continues to ring true in my life. I still revel in how much has changed in 365 days and I look forward to continuing on this path in the days, weeks and months to come. The quote 'fortune favors the bold' has become an affirmation of mine and I aspire to make 2015 my boldest year yet.
Happy New Year, friends. May you live boldly and dare greatly xo
