This summer is all about freedom for me. All year I have been taking steps towards creating a life that is inspiring, flexible and allows me to be the best version of me. I don't want to wait to create my dream life. I can't wait.
Last year was traumatizing and inspiring all at the same time. Several people I knew, loved or admired were taking out of the game of life too soon. I saw young people with young families die. Their bravery and impact was huge. I realized there are no guarantees and you need to live now, you are lucky to have each day you are given. I want to be in the moment and be the best wife, mother and health coach possible. In order to do that I know I need to be creative and free to do it my way. I make the rules for me.
You might be like me...I love to work, I am disciplined and I like being on a schedule. But, it needs to be by my design. I guess I am a free spirit who likes structure. I am definitely an entrepreneur. I am also passionate. But, with passion comes intensity and sometimes I need to chill, to be unscheduled and fluid. I realize that down time fuels and restores my work and my soul. Even when I don't realize it.
This year was also full of life. I launched my own company (transitioning from a large fitness company to working for myself and with other local and more niche fitness companies). Was it scary? Hell yes. But it had to be done. There is much happening and on the horizon, I am energized.
I look at my children and see the power of being free. My children are strong and adventurous. I admire that. I want to support their free spirits, their dreams. I don't want to stuff them into boxes or put out there fire for my convenience. I don't want to put out my own fire for the convenience of fitting in. I am following my intuition and heart. Living in the moment and connecting more. Many of us fear change or look for outside approval. Living in the moment is not always comfortable. Believe in who you are. Be free to share your gifts and truths. It feels good. Freedom is a state of mind xoxo Anna.
