Hey FITGIRLMOB! It has been a crazy hectic couple of weeks and it just hit me the other day that I have now been living in Cali for 3 months! So many amazing experiences have come out of that 3 months and it really feels like my life is sort of falling into place. With my internship ending last week, then heading up to Anaheim for the IDEA WORLD Conference, I have been nonstop but luckily yesterday I had something that I haven’t had in a while- a day off! It’s funny that when I first arrived in SoCal, I had two weeks of “days off” before starting my internship and oh how quickly did that change. Being the energizer bunny that I am I truly don’t mind working 12-16 hour days, but when you are doing that for 2 months it definitely starts to wear you down which brings me back to creating that balance in your life to make sure it is not all work.
With the internship over, 3 months ago I would have thought I would be returning back to my home in CT, but since San Diego has been everything I could have asked for and more, I knew it was the right decision to stay. So many things have been running through my mind nonstop these past few months like where am I going to stay?, will I get a job?, how will I get my car out here? But I kept my main focus on my internship and knew that if it was meant for me to stay, it would all work itself out.
Luckily for me, it has. I am officially all moved in with Josh who has been so supportive of everything I do, I got a job as both a Personal Trainer and fitness instructor, as well as starting an outdoor Bootcamp, and I am in e process of shipping my little Nissan Altima out here. Although I have put in a crazy amount of work to even be out here, it’s kind of funny how things just seem to happen so “easily” when they truly are meant to be.
The second I realized that fitness and health was what I wanted to do with my life, I made it my mission to turn that passion into a career. It wasn’t until I looked back at the past few years that I realized how important it is to find your passion. Why be stuck doing something for the rest of your life that doesn’t inspire you? Do yourself a favor and figure out what your passion is, do what it takes to live through that passion, and let it shine out to as many people as you can.
