It has been a while since I shared on here with all of you, my apologies guys. My new goal is to write more to share more and to do more. For the past 6 months I have been struggling with life. I am not one to complain because in my mind this does nothing. I would rather grow through the struggle and listen to other people who have been through something like what I am going through. I say all this to say that I have been struggling with a few things work, family and self discipline.
First I will share that I have worked for an HMO for the past 21 years and six months ago I almost lost my career due to changes in the company. I was going to be one more statistic of someone who works their entire life for a company and then they see themselves in the unemployment line. I am fortunate to say that as of January I have been working in a new department in a more fulfilling role.
In addition to all the pressure, tension and constant worry from trying to find another job I let go of a few things in my life that make me who I am. I stopped responding to friends, going out with family and lastly being healthy with my eating and fitness. I even stopped doing what I love the most Make-Up. Over the last few months I have been able to get back on track and now I can see more of myself. I have made steps toward being healthier and happier. Everyday I strive to be better and I look forward to sharing more with all of you. If you know anyone who can be motivated or can gain from my story please share.
For those of you that have asked… I am 45 years young, and 3 years ago I started on this health journey not because I saw myself in a picture or someone told me I had to be healthy. I started because as a make-up artist I was asked to go on set at different locations and some of them required me to go up and down stairs, hills and during this time I was out of breath and I did not feel good.
When I started my journey I will have to admit is was hard to do although I had been through many, many, many diets and fads. This program was hard but not as hard as feeling down on myself when trying to keep up with everyone on set. I kept telling myself “how do you want to feel when you go on set?” and this kept me going daily. For the other days that I needed some inspiration and motivation I went ahead and looked into YouTube for inspiration and motivation.
I started sharing my journey through Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter and a few people have supported me through this journey and others have been motivated to get halthy themselves. I upgraded my mindset to open my scope of view and allowed myself to enjoy this journey that I am on. Other people’s stories and motivation keeps me going and shows me that I am not alone and that we are in this together. “US” together will make sure that we succeed.
♥ Please share any stories of your journey or any transformations. I look forward to reading all of them.♥
