2017 ended about the way I expected, alone, lonely, throwing a small pity party. I had options but I let my pity party take over. It got me thinking about the new year and all of the messages of New Year New You!, blah blah blah. It is the new year but its also just the next day. A Monday like every other Monday except I don’t have to work today.
New Year New You…. But I’m not new today. I have work to do, some of the same work I had to do this time last year. I don’t mean to sound like a Negative Nelly, but I’m pretty practical. I think it is a good idea to have this fresh new look on life as the new year dawns. New possibilities, new adventures, new promises - a clean slate. Which, we could do any given day of the year, it is a new day, every 24 hours. We will want to keep this in mind for future reference because we will have some bad days, some great days and all the days in between. Every day could be a new year day.
I started this website because I had a vision. But I wasn’t ready to launch it. I had stuff to do. My vision for this website, for this business, Perfect The Way You Are, personal training for the mind, body & soul is to help others out there realize that there is nothing wrong with them. There is nothing wrong with you! You are perfect the way you are. Do you need to lose weight? Need to - No. Could it be beneficial for your life - Yes. Do you need to move more - No. Could it benefit you - Yes. Do you need to eat better - No. Could it benefit your life - Yes.
In this society we say, “I’m not perfect” or “Nobody is perfect” meaning we all make mistakes, which is true, we do make mistakes. Mistakes help us learn more about who we are. Even as I type this I want to use that phrase to describe how I’ve procrastinated the last 4 months and will most likely not pass my Personal Trainer test this January. However I am perfect the way I am… and I have work to do.
I have plans in 2018. Will I succeed? Yes. Will I fail? Also, yes! That is part of the adventure.
I think this site and future business could really help people. I will share my successes and my mistakes, my goals and losses, but most importantly I promise to be real. I will become a certified personal trainer in order to support people body, mind and soul.
Let me know what you think.
