"A dream is a wish your heart makes when you're fast asleep."
Cinderella sang it beautifully, but I can say with certainty that it's not always the case. My heart made a wish as I tackled a few miles on the treadmill at 5:30 in the morning. Back story? I worked in advertising for 6 years. I was a copywriter and I decompressed at the gym. It was my sanctuary—my place to prepare for a hard day's work. Of course, it was also a way to keep myself healthy. I loved it, every sweat-filled session. And about a year ago, I acknowledged that love. I realized that my heart was making a wish. That I had a new dream. But could I do it? Should I do it? What if I fail?
Thank you, Cinderella, for also reminding me that "if you keep on believing, the dream that you wish will come true."
With my husband's support, I left advertising and become a student at Blue Heron Academy where I learned everything I needed to know about building safe and effective exercise programs. Four months later, I passed my Blue Heron and national exams.
I got my official certificates in the mail three days ago—hooray!
So where am I working? What am I doing? Well, that's all still unfolding and I'll tell you about it when I can. Until then, you'll have to settle for a daily dose of fit.
