The Magic of Beginnings
In 2005, my roommate( and best friend) Elizabeth and I decided we were going to do something we had always wanted to do: Go to New York City! It had been a rough season of disappointments and endings and we decided we were going to stop sitting around and LIVE!
In a matter of hours we had tickets, a hotel, and were packed. It ended up being a life altering trip! Not only did we have the time of our lives and fall in love with the city, I ran into an old employer on Times Square and got offered my dream job and my friend got connected with people in NYC that eventually led to getting her dream job as well!
When we got home and stepped in our little rental house, we looked at each other.
She said, " It doesn't feel like our home anymore, does it?"
I replied, " Not at all."
In the weeks that followed, I bought a house, we found three more incredible roommates, I started my new job, Elizabeth started hers at a Florida branch.
There is magic in things ending and magic in new beginnings! I often wonder what would have happened if we hadn't decided to stop moping and start living. That trip dramatically changed our lives!
Sometimes you just have to make a choice to do something you've never done and watch the magic happen!
Our new challenge group started this morning. I woke up with an uneasy feeling that there was someone else that needed to join us. Our focus this month is creating a vision and getting in tune with your true values. Health and vision are the pillars we all need in place to create an exciting life! If you need a little magic in your life, it's not too late to late to join us! Message me! I still have one tote left with your name on it! <3

Thanks for the solid motivation. Story like this inspires me a lot and gives me a certain realization that there's no reason to fear of starting again. It must have been a rough past and you are still doubting to leave everything behind, but you got to trust your own instinct. If you feel that beginnings could be the better option to follow and that where you can find the growth and inner joy that you want for yourself, you need to embrace it! You will never know unless you try.
