I'm Standing in an Interesting Spot

You've heard that phrase, "if you love something, set it free?"

Or what about how giving is better than receiving?

Or my favorite, from a t-shirt I had as a kid, "Love is like peanut butter - spread some around today."

Well, I believe all of them!  I'm a giver! 

There are a few things in life that I really love:

1. My family, and I am not just saying that because they read this or at least tell me they do
2. Pizza
3. Health and wellness

I share my awesome family (and sometimes threaten to give them away) with my friends all the time and so far no one has asked me to stop.

I begrudingly share my pizza, which is hard to do but important for portion control so I suck it up and do it anyway.

And when it comes to health and wellness, I am a firm believer that the more you give, the more you get.  I really can't put into words how insanely satisfied and happy I am when I can be part of someone reaching a wellness goal....there are no words.  That's why I've decided to earn my certification as a Wellness Coach.  I'm about halfway through my training and will sit for the exam in January.  Eeek!  Thanks to my wonderful mentor and friend Mary Barley for suggesting it to me and convincing me that I could do it. I can't wait to be legally qualified to mess with people's heads.

Anyway, I am getting to a really exciting (and nerve-wracking) part of my training: practice clients.  I've got a few people lined up who have volunteered to be my guinea pigs so I can practice what I have learned.  I don't know why I am so nervous, I coach people all the time and have done it for years.  But now that I actually, like, know stuff, it's different. 

ANYWAY!  The point of starting this blog entry today was not to tell you all that.  It was to capture this nervous feeling that I have that I am finally standing on the crest of a dream and about to jump off. 

I have a lotta lotta love for fitness, wellness, and people's crazy fitness and wellness goals, and I am going to spread some around today.  And tomorrow, and the next day.

And I just wanted to tell you that. :)
