I had this experience recently, where I was screwed over by my “employer.” I use quotes because we are in a dispute over a large sum of money they owe me per my employment terms. Those who know me know I am very trusting – I give the benefit of the doubt and expect people to operate as I do, with integrity and honesty. And while I am pursuing a resolution, I guess I am looking beyond this experience and what it means for my life…I am looking at it as yet another sign that I am meant to be doing something else…and I know what that calling is.

I have made the decision to actually pursue a career that feeds my passion for health. Health and wellness is what I will focus on – specifically instruction and coaching. Fitness has always been a part of my life, but I was never able to fully integrate it in my life to the degree that made me happy while in a full-time career in an industry for which I had lost my passion.

Even though this decision will drastically change my lifestyle, I have been on this journey for a reason. I have never been happier in my life. It feels good, and I sure earned that.
