My very first blog post

writing

A few years ago I started noticing blogs from friends, people who wrote books, pastors, teachers, and so on, but I never thought I would ever have a blog.  I thought, “What do I have to say that anyone would want to hear?”  I hope that I do have something you want to hear, so I’m going to give this blog thing a try.

I am a certified health coach.  Basically, what that means is that I want to make a career out of helping people.  I’ve always wanted to help people, but unfortunately that can become trying to “fix” people who don’t want to be fixed. 🙂  A few years ago I started getting this feeling that there has to be more to life than just punching a clock and being stuck inside all the time.  I moved to Virginia because I wanted to be able to enjoy the outdoors more, but it seemed like I was not really able to get out in the weather because I was working all the time.  So I decided to get certified as a health coach so that I could start helping people and enjoying what I do for a living at the same time.  My job is a great job, I have employers who have seen potential in me and helped me grow continually, but it doesn’t give me that feeling of fulfillment and accomplishment that I thought it would.  The great thing about being a health coach is that I am not trying to help someone who doesn’t already want help, people come to me for advice and support, because they know they need it.  I have several different workshops available, if you are interested comment on this post and I will send you all the information.  Thanks for reading my very first blog post ever!
