Fall, Whole30 & a lot of Inspiration

So, um, it’s been awhile since I’ve shared my life with you all. Yeah, there’s Instagram, Twitter, Facebook & Snapchat, but this is the one place where I am truly able to lay it all out there and share my perspective on what’s going on around me. The last thing you all read was my post about NYC. What a trip! If you missed it, read it now.

And with that being said, we have a lot to catch up on.

Many things have happened over the past month and I’m sure you already realize that I’ve been very busy. The season has changed and time is moving faster than ever. Every time I turn around a new month is starting and I’m constantly trying to keep up. I’ve been doing a lot of work for various committees that I’m on, work work, and personal work like health, food and fitness. I’ve even decided to embark on my 4th Whole30 (which is going well, BTW). Things are moving at a fast pace right now and I like it. I like kicking ass and getting shit done. BUT it’s easy to get lost in it all and lose sight of what really matters from time to time. I have to ask myself, “Why am I doing these things?” “Why are these things that keep me so busy this important to me?” “What’s the end goal in all of this?”

All of this motion and activity makes it hard to live in the moment. When things get hectic we naturally try to get more control over all of it. We search for answers and try to solve problems that don’t necessarily need to be answered right now. I’ve caught myself doing this recently. Trying to do it all and make sure everything is in its place. Reality check – that’s not how life works and it’s not going to be pleasent when you’re always trying to control it. I’m constantly reminding myself to enjoy life, to go with it and not worry about what is happening or what could be. Now is the most important thing, because it’s all there really is. Right now, today, this very minute, we are here and this is life. So what are you doing now? What are you thinking? Are you stressed out about something you honestly can’t change? Are you frantically planning tomorrow as a means to get control. Chill. Just stop. Take a deep breath and enjoy this. This is living. You are breathing, you are here, and right now you are you.

Naturally, I have to sit down and answer my own question. Why am I doing all of these things?… Because I know I am supposed to use my skills, talents, and passion for the betterment of others. Whether it’s helping a company with social media or teaching a friend about Whole30, my passions are inspiring more people than I knew. My love for what I do is actually leaking into other people’s lives and getting their wheels turning too. For me, that’s it. Sparking interest in someone with a healthy or purposeful habit fills me with joy. I want to be here for you, in any way that I can. I want to talk to you, answer your questions, get to know you, inspire you, allow you to inspire me. I want to create a community of people who live now, full of happiness and aren’t afraid to approach the unknown with a smile on their face. I want to be here for you because you all are here for me. I’m surrounded by such incredible people who strong, brilliant, funny, serious, carefree, peaceful and driven people. Every day you all make an impact on me and inspire me to be better and I want to return that to you.

I want you to leave me comments, send me emails, message me, tweet me, snap me. Whatever it is that you do to share positive vibes, I want to see them. I’m going to do the same by sharing my life with you here, on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & Snapchat and we are all going to be here to help each other.
