First successful family seflie!
You may have noticed it’s been pretty quiet on the blog…over a year since I even attempted to write something here.
Our year of travel filled me with awe, inspiration, and so much love.
I can’t remember when or why it happened, but I know that when we came back to Miami, I had a long list of goals for myself and somewhere along the way I disconnected from these ideas and the motivation to share on here.
Getting lost exploring West Lake Park by Paddleboard in Hollywood, Florida
The thing is that two years ago I wrote this article for Hello Fears and every word still rings true. Its taken me until now to realize I lost my path for a little. But I’m shifting gears and pumped for whatever the future brings.
In 2017 I said yes to everything. It was my attempt to figure out what my next steps should be and it was also exhausting. I freelanced in marketing, taught English online to kids in China, served collagen samples, and got certified as a Personal Trainer. I also dedicated a lot of time to managing my Crohn’s Disease solely with diet (more on this in another post). While it was fun to explore a wide range of opportunities, none gave me that “butterflies in my stomach, ah-ha, this is what I want to do for the rest of my life” kind of feeling.
Even though I went into 2017 with an open mind, it didn’t lead me where I thought I wanted to go. And because of my insecurities and frustration with the “what’s next” question, 2018 was challenging career wise.
On the other hand, 2018 was the year we got to welcome this cutie into our lives!
So here I am, ready to give 2019 a big HeYyY!
I am freaking excited. There is a new man in my life who fills our days with lots of fun and I’m looking forward to my next career move too. More details coming soon 😉
Most importantly though, I thought I was searching for purpose and I’m finally realizing that purpose is not defined by my career. Purpose is how I choose to live my life every day. And right now I want to live with zeal and big magic.
Thank you for being part of our adventure!
