Starting a New Chapter

I am starting a new chapter in my life. It's called the "Pre-Empty Nest" chapter! I still have one child at home, but he started high school this year, and so I realize how quickly the time will fly and he will be leaving the nest. I have dedicated the last 23 years of my life to raising my children, and I don't regret any decisions that I made to put them first in my life. I know that they are all wonderful, caring people who will go out and do great things in the world. But what about me? What can I contribute to the world now that my nurturing days are coming to an end? I know that my children, even when they are grown, will always need me, and I will always need them and want them to be a huge part of my life. But the days of feeding, changing, chauffeuring, cooking, cleaning, doing laundry, supervising homework, and just taking care of are dwindling.

So I am very excited that I have found a program in which I will be training to become a certified health coach! It is a year-long program that I will start on September 12th! I have been studying and learning about natural health and nutrition for 10 years now, and I have decided to take the next step and get some formal training. I am nervous about having homework again, it's been quite a long time since I've had to do that, but mostly I am so eager to jump in and start learning how to teach other people the concepts that I have been researching and implementing in my own life!

I will keep this blog updated on my progress as I go along, and I will share as much of this journey with you as I possibly can!
