Basically this post is just a cheeky little update… spiel… journal entry… ramble of my thoughts about this terrifying but thrilling new step of actually starting my own business.
First of all ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Sorry, just had to get that out there. I cannot believe that it happened, I actually did it/am doing it. I guess it’s not a pretty big deal, but to me it still hasn’t sunk in. I’ve never had a salary job and told myself that it is something I do not necessarily want anytime soon. Perhaps it is because of my free spirited, adventurous side of me that want to be able to just drop everything, travel and go explore the world. I have had many, and I mean many jobs in my lifetime. However, I’m at that point where I’m constantly looking for a challenge, always looking for more to grow as an individual and be able to give back in a different and more impactful way. In addition to my list of work experience, I’ve also spent much time, energy, and investment in education. I figured its about that time I do something about all that I have learned and experienced. (I’m sure I’ll go back to school again one day though).
I am currently working 3 casual/part-time jobs and am volunteering at another place. All of February I will only have a total of three days off. So, one would wonder how do I even have time to start my own business? Just like so many other things in life, if you put your mind, heart and soul into it; if you are passionate, determined and disciplined; anything is possible. Plus… the nature of this consulting business is not as intense as many other businesses.
(Just a heads up, it’s about to get real deep). Recently, I have been thinking about if I were to die tomorrow, would I be satisfied with my life? Would I be proud of what I have accomplished; what I have seen and experienced; proud of living my life to the fullest? It is so easy to just keep our head down and live our day to day life with the same routine. One of my worst fears would be exactly that, to watch my life go by and not take opportunities, not go through humbling experiences, and not go explore our beautiful world. I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with having that full time 9-5 job 0r living that same routine on a long-term basis, but it’s just something I personally cannot do; I would probably go out of my mind.
So now here we are, my desire to make an impact and give back, my willingness to challenge myself and do something I have never done, and my determination to be able to sustain a life for myself has brought me to this point of my life: starting a nutritional consulting business. I am super excited, anxious, grateful, humbled, overwhelmed, and also amazed for taking this next step, but also for the support that I have gotten thus far.
If you are still here reading this, thank you. It is people like you that continue to encourage me that I am capable of accomplishing what I set out to do and that I can give back and help others. Whether that is directly through nutrition consulting, or just giving someone that extra support and inspiration through my posts.
I am going to end my ramble here, but first I hope that a year, three years or 10 years from now I will be able to come back to this post and see that I am just as determined, as motivated, as inspired, and still make living my life to the fullest the top priority. I want to be able to say if I died tomorrow I would be proud of my life.
It’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.
