A Note of Thanks!

Dear Friends and Readers!!!

This post will be my version of short and sweet. 🙂

Although I recently mentioned that once my kiddos were all in school, I’d then be embarking on my next academic venture; the stars aligned, I had hubby and kiddo support, I followed my intuition… and THIS WEEK, I have begun the journey towards Health and Life Coach Certification!!! 

I’ve been interested in doing this for FIVE YEARS!!! But, it took until NOW to truly feel in my gut that it was the right time, and the right decision to make.

I’m thrilled. I’m pumped. I’m invigorated.

The major intent of this post however, is to say THANK YOU to all of YOU!!!

I have gone through SUCH TRANSFORMATION in the past five years, and it’s all due to amazing mentors, teachers, friends, family, a like-minded fit fam community, and… a vision. 

I never saw myself capable of being a leader, let alone in the name of health. But not only have I done it; it has become my passion!!! 

In addition, my blog… Pacifying Chaos… has reached 1,000 VIEWS this week!!! 🙌

Ever since I was little, I’ve wanted to help, connect, share, build relationships, inspire, bring joy, & shine a light on *the possible*. I’ve also always been this quirky, authentic, half-glass full kind of self. Fake is not something I do well.

The fact that so many of my readers are *repeats*, shows that my beliefs, struggles, triumphs, and authenticity resonate with so many of you, and affirms my decision to become a Health and Life Coach.

Although I recently announced I’d be sharing a new post weekly… with newly added modules, school work, and coaching practice added to my schedule, I cannot make that promise! Although the do-gooder in me wants to DO IT ALL, the recovering perfectionist part reminds me *small changes* produce *big results*, not to mention, help steer clear of overwhelm and burnout.

That being said, I have SO MUCH I plan to share, and I DO promise to post when time allows!

Subscribing/following my blog will ensure that anytime I post something new, you’ll be notified. I’ll also plan to continue sharing any updated posts on social media.

I heard something today in a module that truly spoke to me…

“You teach others how to recognize their gifts by you recognizing your gifts.

Meditate on that.

I encourage you all to dig deep, and identify your gifts. Dish on yourself!!! What lights a fire in your belly?!… and head towards that! 

It might feel uncomfortable, it might seem unreal, people might think you’re cRaZy…

But you’ll feel more like yourself than you have in a LONG TIME… if not ever. ❤


Stay tuned!
