I would like to say that I have taken a 4 month sabbatical from my blog, but that would be a lie. Because that would mean, I would have stepped away from it on purpose, but this is not true. I apologize for not keeping up with my writing.

This is me getting back on track. Better later than never, right?

The past six months I have been working full time at MBSC. I learned pretty fast that it is easy to get burnt out in this profession; or any profession. Recently, I have been putting my energy towards new and refreshing things.  I learned the importance of balance and I find myself being a better coach for it. I have taken up rock climbing, reading ( I “did” this before, but now I actually do it), making time to celebrate friends and family, and adopting the idea of “self-love.”

“Devoting a little of yourself to everything means committing a great deal of yourself to nothing.” –Michael LeBoef

I have been waiting for the perfect post to bring my blog back to life, but I realized the best post would be me just writing. So here I am—writing.

TIP OF THE DAY: Do something every day that makes you happy.

We are always willing to bend our backs for everyone else but ourselves. We cancel our workout, we post-pone a lunch with a close friend, we wait to plan a weekend get away because “there are other things to do.”  There is always something else we could be doing, but we must make the decision to do what makes us happy. Don’t let life get in the way.
