First thoughts...a little about me

I've decided to start up my fitness goals again and I am determined to make it work despite all the ups and downs I know I will experience. I know that MFP will help me along the way and even in just my first few days it has. I tried using MFP before but I was a little embarassed at first. Now, I decide to say "Screw You" to my embarassment about my weight loss goals and have dove into the community at MFP. It's been so welcoming so far and I am glad that I have taken the risk again. Sharing has not always been one of the easiest things for me to do. So in breaking out of my comfort zone, I decided to start blogging along the way. It seems like it will be theraputic for me.

You see, I've been working through a lot of random and crazy emotions recently, leaving me in not the best mental state. I feel like a lot of things are out of my control, but my health and fitness is something that I can control and will take hold of. 

 Since graduating from college in 2010, I have been lost and wandering for a while, not sure on what path to take next and because of this I have lived in many places and had some crazy but really eye opening experiences through AmeriCorps, but once that ended I was again confused as to where my life would take me, but here I land back in Hawaii. Not someplace I wanted to be (I know you think I am crazy to say that, but it's true.) My heart just doesn't belong here. So right now I working and going back to school to figure things out. I have a decent job in human resources, but it's not my passion. I want to find my passion and I think I might have in nursing. I have always loved working with the elderly in nursing homes and I love that there is always something going on in the medical field, something new and exciting to learn, but right now I am just taking the steps to prepare for nursing school programs. It's a big change from my original plan to save the world as a Foreign Service Officer. It's funny how much your life can change in such a short amount of time, but I guess the wandering has been good for me. It keeps me guessing and on my toes, but I do want to find some solid ground. The older I get the more I want to find a place I feel I belong. So until then...the wandering will continue.

This all hit home for me Jena. I've been struggling with the idea of returning to school to pursue my dream of being a teacher. I've become very complacent in my current job because the money is good. However my heart isn't in it at all. I can definitely see myself being at my job for another 2-5 years if I don't do something quick, fast and in a hurry.
I've decided to uproot my life here in the busy NYC where I've lived for 30 years and move to the country closer to my family for more support.
I feel 2014 is the year for serious change, for the better of course. I think it's time to take a leap of faith in all aspects and trusts that we have it in us to carry ourselves to the end, whatever it may be.

I am a big believer that you should pursue what you are passionate about. I think you should do it before you get too complacent to make the big changes in your life, but you know, it's never too late to make the changes. You are doing what I am doing right now too. I moved to be closer to family and have the support system to go back to school, but I think it is coming closer to a time for me to move on. Still got some more things to take care of, but I am getting on my way and you are too.

Wow! I have the exact same state of mind. I graduated from college last year and since have been completely lost. I even took short term jobs to 'experience' as much as i could, then i moved to Rome for 6 months to teach english and now i'm in France. I think that it is extremely important to be able to find yourself and discover your passion and that takes time ! It's all part of the maturing process and the way our society works. Unlike previous generations the world and workforce is more open to anyone than it ever has been. Thank you for this inspiring messsage that shows us that even as an adult you can decide to change your life for the better and follow your dreams !
