Thankful Thursday

So a lot has been happening this week.  I feel antsy in my life.  To sum up whats happening right now professionally, I currently work as a special education teacher in an inpatient psychiatric hospital.  I wanted to get back into the public school working as a special education teacher, but right when I decided that, the asshole governor destroyed our state budget and took funding away from education.  Most schools are getting rid of teachers, and def not hiring. SO - I'm staying at the psych hospital.  It is fine, I am comfortable there (except when I'm being attacked), and I am making enough money to survive.  I can't help but sit here and feel lost.  Like something is missing in my life!  So the past few days I decided to really research my desire to open a wellness center.  Being a special education teacher will not help me in this pursuit.  SO I started talking to my friend from high school, Aimee.  She recently got her health coach certification at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.  I did some research and decided that this is what I want to do.  I will start school in the fall, while working as a teacher.  The eventual goal is to be a health coach privately and teach Zumba classes. Aimee works at the YMCA doing health coaching as well as her own practice, Embody Natural Health.  I want to thank Aimee this week for talking with me and answering all of my questions.

Talk about a new motivation!  No one is going to talk to a fat health coach - gotta get under 200lbs stat!!!!     


  1. ohhhh I LOVE your idea/goals/plans! thinking about doing that too. Go Alzie! curious - do you work with autistic children? My daughter's thinking about this using art therapy...not sure if she's gonna really go for it but she's been thinking about it a lot. Hmmm...

  2. Having dreams and aspirations .....and even better acting on them is fantastic. We only have one life, one shot at it and we either puddle along or we go for our goals. Not everything comes off for us but having dreams and reaching for them great
    Well done!
