I was on my way to go to bed, when I realized how happy, encouraged and motivated I feel. I finally have support from the one person in my life I am always seeking it from and it is such a liberating experience.
Some time ago, I wrote about pursuing my passion. At that time I was talking about a creative outlet. I pursued it very little and didn’t get anywhere. At this same time I was discouraged because I was at a job I didn’t like. Since I didn’t like my job I didn’t excel in the field. I was terminated from that job and had a rough few weeks following, but before I lost my job and in the time following that I was able to pursue my networking passion. In the spring through the summer and up to now I was able to work on promotions for friends of mine. The experience that I’ve had networking for them has been rewarding and I plan to pursue it further.
In the fall, I was able to go to a place I love, Massachusetts. I did work there for about 6 weeks. I had to move around a lot while I was up there which was the biggest inconvenience, it was made abundantly clear to me that I needed a new car, as daily something different was going wrong with my 2000 VW Beetle. Other than those things and day to day happenings with humanity the experience was good. The weather was nice, the project was a success.
As we move towards winter I embark on new endeavors which includes a possible trip to Texas for a short project in a Frisco where a good friend of mine lives. I have also finally taken a dive into the market of direct sales. I am officially a Just Jewelry consultant. I am happy to support a brand that I can stand behind, but it feels good to have the support of family and friends.
My next goal as the year comes to a close, is to get my health into order. I would really love to lose weight by eating right and exercise. I’m an amateur in the kitchen, I would really like to better my skills as a cook and also I want to kick my workout routine up a notch. I have several issues to overcome:
- I do not have a workout partner
- I do not have a set routine for myself
- I do not have the knowledge I need for a complete and balanced diet/workout routine
I have to keep in mind a quote I recently came by- “No one is going to tell you to get off your ass and work out. Motivation comes from within. No one wants this more than you.” So there goes my excuse about having a partner. I can make a routine for myself IF I would set a time to go to sleep and to wake up and STICK TO IT. (as I write this at 12:36a). Lastly, I can obtain knowledge about diet, nutrition, health and exercise, but I have to go and get it. Right now, I’m being lazy and unmotivated, I’m motivated in other areas of my life; now is the time to pursue excellence in all areas, not just some. I need to light the fire and light up the night!
I’ll do my best to keep you posted on my journey, struggles and successes. Also, send any tips, comments or suggestions you may have my way!
