Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle.I read these words of Steve Jobs in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition's catalogue that arrived in the mail today.
And excitement floods my heart.
I cannot wait to start this course in nutrition, health coaching, and business! Talking with my health coach, Amanda Daley, has forever impacted my life. She has helped me transform destructive mind patterns I did not even realize I was stuck in, helped me seek joy and pleasure in life, and believed in the power for me to heal. I have been so blessed to be able to work with her. She truly has become a best friend and cheerleader for me during this time of suffering through chronic fatigue syndrome. After three sessions with Amanda, my health totally turned a corner and I am the me I was created to be again. I am loving life and excited about today and the future. I am creating again. I am closer to God and seeking His face. And I don't believe this is all from the talks I have had with Amanda but I do believe it was a big part of my healing!
I am so excited to gain training in these areas and cannot wait to see how God will work through this course - in my continued healing and also in using my story to help others. My dream is to share my story and how faith and gratitude were two of the biggest things that brought me on my journey of healing.
My passion is for people to know Him who saves and live fully true and joyous healthy lives.
Where this will lead me I don't know. I haven't abandoned my nursing goals but have rather put them on hold. Currently I plan to go back in Fall 2014 to finish off my degree but as I have learned from this time of being sick, I am going to take one day at a time and see where God leads me.
I pray that I will have open ears to hear Him, open hands able to let go and be filled with His guidance, love, and joy, and feet willing to go where He prompts.
And I pray that for you too.
I pray you would find that thing you love if you haven't already and that with His help be great doing whatever it may be!
