Taking the Bull by the Horns

Sometimes, I think you need to shake things up in order for everything to fall where it needs to fall.

This past week, I got into a horrible fight with one of my mentors.  Mind you, I have so much respect and admiration for this person that I do not think I have ever looked up to anyone so much.  To hear some of the things that were said hurt.  They hurt really bad.  This is not to say some of the things that were said weren’t true; it was just hard to hear.  I think I am more upset that a relationship I really value is changing, and change scares me.  But, like I said, maybe things have to fall apart to fall into place.  I’m ready for them to fall into place.  I’m just ready to have my mentor back.

In every effort to move forward, I think it’s time to shake things up…grab the bull by the horns so to speak (I learned that from my mentor).  Here’s the plan…

I’m going to take control of my exercise and eating habits.  No more breaking down when things get hard or any of the bullshit I tell myself.  Time to figure it out.  Period.  My workout buddy and I finished Focus T25 (Alpha, Beta, and Gamma thank you very much) and have moved on to Jillian’s Body Revolution.  I’m super stoked and more about that later.

Second, I think I’m going to start my own, little business.  Believe it or not, I also have a crafty side and wreath making has been keeping me busy these days.  I’ve sent pictures to a few of my friends/family, and many of them have expressed interest in having one and encouraging me to explore selling them.  So, I think I am going to do just that.  I’m taking it slow to actually start selling as I am researching and trying to take the time to set it up properly.  However, I have a blog, facebook page, and pinterest account.  I’ve had the blog for a long time, and I set up shop a while ago and never did anything with it.  This is actually a long dream in the making, and I am super excited about it.  I’ve already researched tax stuff and talked with a dear friend who is an accountant (HI ALLISON!!), so things are rolling.

Now, I just have to stay organized and do the “not fun” stuff when I am feeling lazy.  This includes setting up blog posts and scheduling meals and keeping track of all of my purchases.  I need to be disciplined.  There have been too many times when I have just let things happen.

It’s time to take the bull by the horns.
