Let your dreams be bigger than your fears.

Hi, #FitFam!! Not to scare you but - we are more than halfway through 2017. Wut.

After that shock wore off a bit, I realized it's been a few months since I've done a life lately post - so I'm filling yinz in on what's been going on in my world. It'll be a shorter post since I can't reveal a whole lot yet - but I'm facing a lot of life changes.

While my 2017 goals list is pretty long, I've been working toward one major goal for the past 6 months. I shared some news in this Instagram post, but also wanted to fill you guys in here - just in case you don't follow me on Instagram. (Which, you should!) So, hiiiiiii and also I'm sorry for being kind of silent on the blog lately. It's had to take a backseat so I can focus on some bigger things but I promise it won't last much longer.

Since I'm getting SO close, I am feeling both incredibly excited and nervous. Yoga classes and workouts will be few and far between, and no more binge-watching Game of Thrones as I focus on completing what I set out to do. (But, man I can't wait to get back to all those things!).

In case you're wondering - Naturally Me will not be going anywhere. In fact, I'll be able to give you guys much more fitness-related posts and guidance. There are also some amazing collaborations in the works - one involving traveling which I don't get to do much of!

You can keep up with me over on Instagram or Twitter - I'd love to connect! Of course, if you ever have questions, ideas about blog content you want to see, or just want to talk about how awesome dinosaurs are - shoot me an email! ;)

Oh, and a few more things --

Your dreams and passions may change from where you once thought you'd be, and that's okay. Will it seem scary? Oh yes. Will you contemplate whether you should make such a huge change? Probably. Could it be categorized as a mid-life crisis? Debatable. ;) But taking the first step toward a dream you can't get out of your head will light an even bigger fire within you. (Even if it takes some nudging by loved ones.) Use that passion to go after it and don't give up until you're spending each day doing something that makes you wildly happy.

Editor's note: I thought I was finished writing this post, then I came across this thought/quote from one of my friends that I've been holding close: "There is no growth without disturbance." 

I also found (and bookmarked) an eye-opening Mindbodygreen article about how fear is holding us back and ways to cover come it.

Just some food for thought. ;) Xo

  2. YES! Your dreams can always change — my one friend says that happiness is a moving target, and I love thinking about it that way! Can't wait to see what is next for you.
