I was going to title this blog 'When one door closes...' but to be honest, it's me who has closed the door to open a great big french window on a brave new world. So to say when every door closes another opens would be slightly misleading in the context of this post.
|Farewell desk job!|
While the job has been great in terms of money and experience within the office and the Higher Education environment, it has also been slowly sapping all the joy out of the bulk of my day. I have to be honest, I had come to seriously dislike the person it was turning me into. I suppose I have learned that to be happy, I do not need material things that a well paid job will bring. I have more spring in my step now that I know I will be helping other people change their lifestyle habits with food and exercise; that hopefully some of my passion for fitness and activity will rub off on those who employ me to beast them in the gym/outdoors on a regular basis.
|Here's to making it memorable :)|
|That still makes me grin like an idiot|
I start officially on Monday (April 8th) when the final website goes live (only 16 months after I purchased the domain) but I'm already excited. I have 3 clients already, and a few more that are meeting me to see if I'm the trainer for them. And while I have been offered jobs at gyms (and big gyms at that), I don't think that is the path for me. I joke a lot about wanting KrissieKirby.com to be a global brand name.... but what if it was? I may as well give it a shot, because what do I have to lose? Nothing really, but everything to gain. And I have never been one to live by 'what if'.
So the door on the office has closed, and here I am, hands on the push plate, ready to throw open the french doors on a brave new world.
This should be fun, hard work and long hours, but fun.
Be kind to yourself, as always
