A Day Not Wasted

I’ve seemed to have had a lot of Tuesdays off since I’ve started working for a company that is open for business Sunday – Saturday. I’d like to report that I’ve gone on adventures for the day, to the beach, or where I like to call “wine country” a.k.a. Charlottesville, but most days, I’ve just sort of “hung out”, visited with friends and family, and being a tourist in my own city.

Today was one of those days. I hung out, came in contact with a few good humans, and did  a lot of what I do best; think! Week days like this when I’m not doing a whole lot, it’s interesting to notice the ebb and flow of traffic, both on foot and in transit; the comings and goings of my neighborhood and the city.

The highlight of today was in the afternoon when my consultation that I had earlier today with a local health coach got real, and I decided to put my health first. I’ve had a history of issues with food, mostly the over-consumption kind of issues, and it’s time to really dig in and invest in my health and wellness journey for me and only me. #shitjustgotreal

I’m very excited as to what my health coach has in store for me! I am so ready for a life-long improvement and change, and I know that I have an entire army of loved ones that would love to see my light shine even brighter than before!

Another highlight of this typical Tuesday was that I was brave enough to let my guard down and get the word out on FB about my care-taking services. In just one hour, I’ve gotten tremendous feedback, and I couldn’t be happier and more grateful for that!!

The inspiration to bite the bullet and solicit myself on FB was the fact that my newfound health coach’s services is going to cost. A lot. I feel that it is truly worth it though, to invest in your own health and well-being. If I think about the life-long practices and benefits from this program, the monetary value quickly diminishes.

I haven’t focused on myself this much as I have done today in a long time. And it feels GOOD!!! It feels really good! Although I have an incredibly supportive and loving family, who would do absolutely ANYTHING for me, at the end of the day, it’s my life and my path that I am forging.

What I have learned today while “hanging out” and “over-thinking” is that if I want something bad enough, I will work for it and do whatever it takes to make it happen.

Hope ya’ll had a good one!
