changing direction
I was listening to a podcast recently and the woman being interviewed said something about even the most confident women can tell you something about their body they’re not happy with or that they simply want to change themselves or their direction overall. It can be frustrating to feel like no matter how far you go, you feel like you still have more you want to do, be, see. It can also be rewarding though.

It’s those feelings, when taken positively can move us to keep learning, growing and being better. I know I always find the more I know the more I find I don’t know. That only makes me want to learn more. It’s a cycle I don’t mind being caught up in. I also know the frustration of wanting to change things but having no idea where to start. It’s so easy for us to say we want to  be healthier, be fit, be successful. Saying those things takes no effort. Doing those things is another story. That’s where change needs to happen.

Sometimes in the winds of we find our trueLately, I have been having some big girl conversations with myself. You know those moments when you have to get real with yourself with what you want vs. what you’re doing. I am trying to move myself in a new direction. When it comes to my fitness goals, my business goals and my style goals. In some ways, I hit a bump in the road. Trying to remain a fit, fashionable biz mama has all kinds of challenges! What I know though is to change my direction I had to take action.

So, I’m kicking off a challenge! I’m challenging myself and you to try something new. Try something out of your normal and something out of your comfort zone. To get different results on anything we have to do different things. Something so simple as taking a different route to work can change your outlook. It could inspire an idea. The simplest changes can make the biggest difference.

  1. That’s really inspiring. Sometimes we think of changes as a negative thing because we’re used to the way things are. Changes are always nice, especially if it’s for self-improvement.

  2. I love this idea! We are always trying to change our lives, but we think to big and get overwhelmed then just stop trying. It is in our daily routines that we really have the power to make huge changes.

  3. This is such a great post, thank you for the motivation. In one week I would like to finally get a start on the decluttering I have been talking about for weeks.

  4. I love this! Very inspirational. I started taking ski lessons recently. I’d been wanting to do it for years. I finally just forced myself to go to that first lesson and it was a lot easier each week.

  5. Change is okay, as long as it is well planned and well explained, plus the direction or goal is clear as the light of day. However, if it is something like an “in your face” change, I am not one who would go for it. I always have this nagging question – WIIFM? (What’s It In For Me) before I make a decision.
