It’s going to be a long day…

Ah….transitions. They are never easy. And I’m in the midst of one right now.


I just gave notice at my job yesterday. And I feel like the worst person in the world. A bit of back story….


I originally went to school to be a teacher. I love working with kids and introducing them to new ideas. I always loved school and wanted to share that passion. Well, long story short- school is expensive and teaching is not the “safest” position to be in right now. Plus, I discovered that I’m a bit too independent to work in a school system. I want to teach what I want, when I want, how I want…. so I decided to take a break from school; work, and see where life takes me.

So for the past several years I have been a full-time nanny. And it’s been great. I love working with the kids and have really felt like part of the family. But in that time I’ve discovered a passion within me; to teach others how to build healthy joyous lives. So I studied and got my personal trainer’s certification which I’m ecstatic about, but now the tough part…. moving on. I gave notice with my “family” yesterday and I feel like such a traitor. I know it’s for the best. I know it’s the right thing to do. But that doesn’t make me feel any less like a big pile of dung right now.

I am so excited for where my life is headed. I have taken a full-time position with the company my husband works for- a running store in downtown Sacramento. I can’t wait to “dip my toe” into the fitness industry and soak up as much knowledge as I possibly can. But still…

Change is hard no matter if you know it’s right or not. 



How do you deal with change? Transitions?

Any advice?



Love and Joy,




Habakkuk 3:17-18

17 Though the fig tree does not blossom,
    and no fruit is on the vines;
though the produce of the olive fails,
    and the fields yield no food;
though the flock is cut off from the fold,
    and there is no herd in the stalls,
18 yet I will rejoice in the Lord;
    I will exult in the God of my salvation.
