a good day

alright so remember how I said that I was reading Nerd Fitness? remember I said I was obsessed?
okay well it was just the other day so I hope you do!  I mean, if you listen to me at all... randomly
so anyhow, I was just telling Aaron the last two nights, literally night. laying in bed, in the dark
rambling about my life struggles, trying to find myself, what I want to do, who I want to be.
turns out, today the two things totally came together.  it was very odd and happy timing.
embarassingly enough, I told Aaron last night,
"I know it's not real life, but I think it might be fun to be a personal trainer like Gillian Michaels."
"to really change lives, reach out and help people. yell and make positive changes."
he clearly thought I was ridiculous and he didn't see my point at all. bottom line:
I am incredibly interested and passionate about fitness. I want to feel that my job is important.
I want to wake up 10, 20, 50 years from now and feel like my job mattered to someone.
I think that personal trainers do change the world, they change the worlds of the people they train.
so back to my story!!  today I got a blog update from Nerd Fitness saying that they are hiring.
I wavered back and forth thinking about whether or not I should apply.  why the hell shouldn't I?
so do you know what I did?  I sucked it up, answered the strange questions as honestly as I could,
and I applied.  I even told them about this little blog of mine.  this is who I am after all..
this is who they will end up with.  they should see up front who they are getting :) I think they will like it.
hopefully I hear back.  if not, it is one step towards getting out of my safe bubble.
one step towards doing something that I wouldn't have done yesterday. and that is an accomplishment.
so really, job or no job. I've already won!

  1. Good for you! I work in PR right now, and I find it super unfulfilling. I started a program in dietetics a few months ago because I realized that for me to feel fulfilled in life, I need to help people. I feel so good about my decision so far. I really think some people are put on earth to help people, and that some people truly need to help people to feel fulfilled.
