It was a cold, cloudy, December day in Wisconsin. I remember it like it was yesterday. I was sitting on the couch in our small living room with just my thoughts to occupy my time. I had a deep longing inside my soul for something more, something that would provide more fulfillment and give me purpose. I wanted someone to come along and hand me what I was looking for, give me an opportunity, or tell me what to do. But of course, it didn’t happen that way. As I was sitting there with my thoughts, I had a “light-bulb” moment, a significant moment in time where I felt something inside me rise up and say, enough! If I wanted more and if I had dreams inside my heart, I needed to chase after them. I needed to work for it and I needed to make it happen!
That may seem like a simple concept, and really it is, but the challenge lies within the work that comes after the realization that is not so simple. My journey has had many twists and turns of events, and to be perfectly honest, it’s been a long, hard road of finding out who I am, what my purpose is, and finding my authentic self.
I invite you to follow along on my journey as I continue to chase my dreams. My hope is that you will find inspiration through my story and have the courage to write your own. My story will evolve as I explore my love for fitness, my journey as a mother and my personal growth on this adventure we call life.
