Today’s Day One of A Whole New Chapter

Happy New Year. Welcome 2018.

Today’s the first page in a whole new chapter of your life, you get to choose the story you write for the next 365 days.

This year I’m going to write the best story I can for my life. Last year was filled with lots of ups and downs. Physically, mentally, emotionally, professionally, and personally.

I changed jobs and haven’t quite picked up the momentum I want with the new job but I know it will come.

I had/have some major health issues going on. Fortunately, we have found the cause of all of these issues and I am on my way to fixing/curing the issue. I’ll still be dealing with this over the year, but I’ve ended 2017 with a diagnosis and a start of a plan to get back to my old self health wise.

I started working out at Orange Theory Fitness where I push myself beyond my comfort level more times than I can count. I’ve met some amazing people from the staff, coaches, and other members. It’s been truly an amazing experience and I can’t wait to see what I accomplish alongside all these amazing people in 2018.

I stepped up with the non-profit I’ve been working with. Taking on more responsibilities and learning more and more about the foundation and all that goes into what is done in order to make things happen. I’m excited about working on our biggest fundraiser committee over the next couple of months and also working on setting up some vendors to help cut costs and streamline things.

Over this past year I’ve said goodbye to loved ones, friends fell by the wayside and others just weren’t meant to be. But, for every person that has left my life there has been at least one new person added to my life that has inspired, encouraged, and meant the world to me.

I’m looking forward to 2018 and all that it will bring me. I know I have a long road to recovery coming up and will be dealing with some challenges but I’m also excited to see the type of person this shapes me to be.

And, as it’s a New Year and one of my goals is to be as healthy as I can, I started the day off with a OTF workout that was brutal. But, hey I did it and I survived and next year at this time hopefully I won’t think it’s as brutal as I felt it was today.

This is the first of many OTF summary reports for the year 2018.

So, as I look forward to 2018 and all it may throw at me I’m getting my sh*t together to make it the best year I possibly can.

Hope that you have had a great year and that 2018 delivers all that you hope for.
