Where have I been, what the heck have I been doing???
I have been off the grid.
I have been quiet on social media. I haven’t sent out a newsletter or updated my blog in quite some time. Because of this, many people immediately thought that something BAD happened to my father, but in reality, I was taking on a GREAT opportunity.
I was offered a position that will allow growth, stability, a chance to be a part of a team and to continue to develop my leadership skills.
To be offered a position like this, at this point in my life, has reassured me that I am on the right path, and has reminded me that I do have the power to make an IMPACT in this world. More specifically, the Health and Wellness industry.
It has been chaotic yet calming, intense but fun, rewarding and filled with sacrifice.
Over the past 6 weeks, I have felt safe but scared, at home but completely uncomfortable. It is like I know this, but yet I know nothing at all. I have felt grounded, but often I can’t even find my footing.
Despite all these feelings, this is a shift I needed and was ready to embrace.
As I was settling into theses feelings, and becoming one with them, I found out that I again had to move. This would mark my 5th move in 11 months. This stirred up more bitter emotions. Because I have constantly had to defend and protect myself, I haven’t been able to truly cope with many of the things that have transpired this past year.
It was a tough few days when I found out the news. There were feelings of doubt, wondering if it is even worth staying in the SF Bay Area, questioning why I always seem to be getting knocked down just as things were ramping up.

After a few days of being lost in my thoughts, the little “Pistol” that is inside of me rose up. I was determined to make seize this change since with every change, there is an opportunity to improve.
And that is just what I did.
I have received amazing praise at work. I am surrounded by many old friends and have already made new ones. The environment is so positive it can be overwhelming, but I am grateful surrounded by happy and positive people that want to see you succeed on a daily basis.
My house that I successfully moved into this weekend is absolutely stunning. It is located in the hills and surrounded by gorgeous hiking trails.
With each move, my living situation continues to improve.
With each career opportunity, I become more solidified in my mission and purpose.
With each big change, I become more deeply rooted in my core values and what is truly important to me.
“You always have the choice to be happy. Learn to understand the purpose of bumps in the road, grow from them and stay positive.”
As I settle into all of my new surroundings, I look forward to continuing to share my journey and lessons learned.
Wishing you a Healthier Ever After.
