Don’t limit yourself to a life lived solely within a comfort zone. Take risks. Welcome the challenge to overcome any obstacles to making a change in your life.
Have you ever had that feeling that life is good, but it could be better? We become comfortable in our routine and we dare to step outside of that comfort zone. We may even feel stuck. The good news is, life is not set in stone and we have the power to do something about it and in doing so you’re making a choice and a commitment to make a change. With a sincere belief that the power to make a change is within you you can plot a path forward and make active decisions about your life.
You decide your future.
Now I want you to think about what kind of future would excite, move and inspire you? If you wish to have that future what are you prepared to change right now? If you’ve been to this place in the past, but you froze when you got to the part about making, ask yourself, “What is holding me back?” Maybe you get analysis paralysis and overanalyze to the extent that it all becomes too overwhelming. Or maybe you don’t know you have it within you to do it and before you know it all the negative self talk begins cycling in your mind and you put the whole idea out of your mind.
So, whether your faced with the inevitable changes that happen in life or changes you’re choosing to make from a place of personal growth, embrace it. Take control and believe in the power that is within you to shape your thoughts, actions and future.
Change has been the theme of my life this year.
My daughter graduated from high school and will be moving out in August to attend Miami University. With choosing a school, prom, college orientation weekend, and our trip to Siesta Key, Florida our year has been a whirlwind. So much love and so many emotions wrapped up in it all.
My son shared some very exciting news about possibly doing an engineering coop abroad. So proud and excited for him, but abroad is a big change from a 30-minute drive to come home.
Chad and I have started talking house hunting to right-size. Moving out of a home that is full of so many family memories is tough to contemplate. We still have to come to an agreement on what we want. He wants tiny house or condo. I just want a smaller house. Whatever happens, it will be a change and an adventure for us both.
Becoming a girl boss and growing a business has been a big leap of faith and an even bigger step outside of my comfort zone. My yoga and personal training business continues to grow and I’m loving it all, but the business side is still a steep learning curve. In addition to teaching yoga classes, I’ve started a Yoga 101 6-week workshop series that I’m teaching at local studios. I have plans in the works to add 1-day yoga/wellness retreats and fitness bootcamps to my calendar. I’m also working on expanding my business to more of an online presence and services. I can’t wait to roll it all out!
Changes for Jill Conyers | Fitness, Health & Happiness are in the works to better capture the —purpose of this community. Many of you have commented on how I [and my blog] have evolved over the years. It’s an evolution that has and will continue to reflect who I have become and how I can help you. I’ve been experimenting with frequency of new content and social media platforms to make changes on the blog. 3 new posts a week just hasn’t been doable and honestly, I want to work spend less time at my computer. And, my newsletter is getting a makeover.
For most of last year I backed off accepting sponsored content to, again, find a balance. I’m partnering with brands that I love (and you’re going to love too) to share new things that are meaningful to the purpose this community.
I PROMISE YOU’RE GOING TO LOVE IT!
I’m making changes to find the right balance to continue to do the things that make me excited to get out of bed every single morning. The things that make my heart beat fast.
One more thing. Something to keep in mind when you’re contemplating change. I remember someone saying to me, “you don’t have to change everything about yourself.” That statement stuck with me and lead to asking myself whether or not the changes I want to make are coming from a place of unworthiness and shame or from a place of self love, purpose and personal growth. At the time it was a little of both. Now I look at making a change through a reflective lens. Is the change I want to make what I truly want AND need? Or, is it coming from me not feeling good enough or unworthy as I am?
