Today is my last day of my 43rd year on Earth! By this time tomorrow I’ll be 44 years old! It’s not like I’m sad that I’m getting older, but for sure I am getting wiser.
The past few months have been full of re-evaluating my life, what I’m doing and what I actually want for the future. Not just for me, but for my son too. This time has been full of cutting the crap down, being realistic with the fact that I’m too old for that crap, getting myself out of the funk I was in, and pushing and forcing myself to move forward. I realized that if I didn’t act on the opportunities God was putting in front me, I was going to lose them like a fool, and let me tell you something, I am not a fool!
A lot of people start the New Year with all their resolutions and lists of stuff they want to do, but my new year starts on my birthday. So by the time 2018 started I had been praying for God to show me which way to go, because I was done with the way I had been going. I think I told you, I was working nights as a triage nurse, being a mama and everything else during the day, and well yes, trying to sleep too if I could. So that didn’t go too well, 2 years later I found myself in a depressing puddle of chaos. This is when I prayed for God to throw me a rope, or two.
Well, God answered my prayers by leaving me breadcrumbs to follow and I did! That’s what I’ve been working on. I need to get in shape so badly but I also want to help others while I do that. I prayed for God to help me use my nursing background and God lead me to health coaching. So I went back to school, became a health coach and I’ve just taken my first baby steps to get my health coaching gig going. I’ve been doing a lot of learning, and I’m slowly getting there, but I’m moving towards my goal, which is beyond exciting!
Both my kid and I are so looking forward to this new chapter in our lives. God has been working in both our lives for a long time, and I firmly believe that was just God preparing us for what He had planned for us. It’s the perfect way for us to serve others while sharing with them how awesome God can be in their lives, just as He has been in ours.
So, tomorrow is my birthday, and I’m starting it with taking new steps towards this brand new and exciting chapter in my life. Today I’m looking at all the growth that I went through during my 43rd year, and I’m hoping that my 44th year will be filled with more growth, lots of new blessings and memories!!
P.S. I’m sorry I’ve been away, but I had my life under construction! So yes, I’m back and I’m here to stay! No, I won’t take forever to share stuff with you again!
Thank you and see you pretty soon!!!
