Welcome to the Blog for my coaching company, Committed Change Health & Wellness. I am so happy you are here to take this adventure with me!
The last few years have been a tremendous time of growth and change for everyone. For me personally, I faced my own greatest critic (me), and made the commitment to look inward. Was I healthy? Was I happy and fulfilled? Would I look back on my life in another 10 years and think yeah, I did okay. Unfortunately, the answer was no to all those questions. Like many others, I was going through the motions, lacking passion, fighting fears, flying under the radar.
No, flying under the radar is not a bad thing if you need a rest or are happy with the current status of things. But I was neither and I became acutely aware that it was time for a change.
I have two quotes on my vision board:
“The quality of your life is directly related to the amount of uncertainty you can comfortably live with.”
“The hardest thing to do is leaving your comfort zone. But you have to let go of the life you’re familiar with and take the risk to live the life you dream about.” – T. Arigo
These quotes spoke to me because I was doing just that. Staying in my (un)comfort zone to avoid uncertainty, scrutiny, risk, fear, judgement, guilt, failure. In the end, not taking risks made me more unhappy than taking a few steps to improve my life. When I finally took those steps, tried something new, read a new book, ate a new food; I felt alive. It was the exact opposite of what I was living! I wanted to feel that every day. There were days when I said, “Whoa, now. Who the heck are you thinking you deserve better?” It gave me pause and then I responded, “I’m worthy. That’s who I am.”
From that day on, I took one step, then another, then another. In the end, I had lost 50 pounds without ever stepping foot into a gym or doing some crazy diet. I went back to school. I ate a new way. I lived a new way. I started this business. It was time to change, and I chose me.
I’ll share my story here and hopefully (with permission), the stories of others that walk this path with me. I’m not sure what I’ll be posting here but I assure you that it will always be positive and a benefit to others. It is my greatest wish that others join me in stepping out of their comfort zones to live the life they dream about.
Those that know me will confirm I have stayed in my own lane for quite some time.
I’m flipping on the turn signal. The next lane is joy.
Leave a comment and let me know if you’re ready for the ride too!
Take care and be well,
