How are you?
There have been a lot of changes recently and I thought I would share them with you. The first change is Mike and I officially moved into our new apartment which is closer to downtown Milwaukee! We’re very excited about the location, neighborhood, and new adventures. When we moved to Wisconsin we wanted to live where we are now but there wasn’t anything available so we settled into a nice, quiet, suburb area. Our new place is in a more active part of town within walking distance to restaurants, parks, running trails, and other fun things. I’ll be sure to share pictures of our new place once we are all unpacked- we’re getting close!
The next change is I’ve decided to leave my 9-5 desk job for something that will make me much happier. Last year I began my training to be a certified Pilates instructor. I’ve changed a lot throughout the journey and learned a lot about myself in the process. I’ve always believed that it’s not about money, it’s about what makes you happy. When I teach and do Pilates I am truly happy. My spirit is uplifted, I come home in a good mood, and I don’t feel like I have to be someone else when I’m teaching. I’m excited to do something that I am very passionate about every day.
As I continue my training and after I complete my certification I know that I will see more changes in myself and all for the better. One thing I’ve learned and that I tell myself constantly is that “Change is the only constant in life.” So much has changed in the past month and while I’m still adjusting I have seen many signs that it is truly for the best.
I’m a strong believer in the phrase “Everything happens for a reason”. I was preparing to start my Pilates training when we were still living in Columbus but put the idea on hold after we moved to Wisconsin. I’m so glad we moved to Wisconsin because I am training with an excellent instructor and in an excellent program. I’m learning the true classical Pilates method, the one created by Joseph Pilates himself.
As I write this post I know that some may not understand this journey but I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders as I share this news and know that today is my last day in a job that is not for me.
