The BIG decision

Near the end of my yoga teacher training we did a fantasy exercise. We pretended that we were at a reunion together a year later and we talked about what we had done over the past year since graduation.

Baxter said if you said it out loud and as if you had actually done it it would make it more real. He also advised us to write a letter to ourselves to read in a year, which I did.

One of the things I said at “the reunion” was that I had quit my job.

I have done a lot of thinking and have made a big decision in my life.

I recently gave notice of resignation and my last day is mid-month.

I need some time for me. For my own self-care. My goal is to take care of me right now.

And to explore this new gig I have as a yoga teacher. I have taken on yoga classes as a sub at a gym and am working on a few more options. (I would also love to spend more time working on this blog.)

I will also work with friends and family on one-on-one private yoga sessions. And … Continue reading

A proud moment

As Michelle was proud of her husband last Monday, I have warm fuzzy feelings about mine as well.

Curt started a new job last Monday. After almost 8 years at one employer he made the decision to make the move to change jobs. This is a good move for him and his career and I am supportive.

Almost two weeks ago was his last day at his former employer. There were going-away drinks for him in the city that night. So I made my way to the city (aka San Francisco) to join him, his co-workers and some of our friends.

There were lots of people at the outing. Many I knew, some I didn’t.

I heard more than once that it was the biggest going away drinks attended. I also heard that Curt brought out a bunch of formers for his send-off.

And lastly, many people I met for the first time kept saying what a “good guy” he is. Many were going to miss him terribly.

When you love someone and you hear others say nice things about them it gives you this amazing feeling. Pride. Love. Joy.

Since I am not a parent I imagine that this … Continue reading

Are you inspired by Go Fit Girl!?

Recently I debated if I should keep up with the Go Fit Girl! blog. It’s a decent amount of work. I consider it my second job, which I don’t get paid for, and it is rather time-consuming.

I do enjoy maintaining it and doing the research and learning things and sharing it all with my readers. But I had started to wonder if it was worth it.

I love getting comments. But I rarely get them.

Occasionally I hold something called Comment Contest Tuesday to generate comments and get my readers more involved. But I have to say it is like pulling teeth to get people to comment. And with Comment Contest Tuesday my readers have a chance to win a prize. Seems pretty easy to me.

When you comment you have to give your name and e-mail address. Only your name is published. And it doesn’t have to be your full name or your real name.

The reason you have to fill in your e-mail is to help eliminate spammers. I won’t ever share your e-mail. And the only time I use it is to alert you that you won the random drawing for Comment Contest Tuesday and to … Continue reading
