You Can Teach an Old Dog New Tricks

I want to start out by saying that life has been so crazy lately it has taken a toll on this blog.  Although I manage to post Weekly Menus consistently  I have not written since I was in Germany.  So many things have changed in the last few months.  A change that has required a lot of discipline and a complete shift in the way I live my life.  For the past 20 years I’ve worked at the same corporate job as a Director of Operations.  I love my job and the company I work for and have never had a doubt that I would retire from there.  But in the last six months there’s been a dramatic shift in what I believe I’m capable of, and the idea that I was meant for something else has begun to creep in, a little more every day,

Let me tell you a little more about myself, I’m a schedule oriented person.  I’ve always enjoyed living life within a nice, neat, square, decided I needed to challenge myself a little because I felt my brain was getting stale.  I mean when you have the same job for 20 years you can kinda do it in your sleep.  It’s great to have that kind of expertise at something but eventually you realize that you’ve stopped challenging yourself and that’s a little scary.  So I started this blog.  At the time my intention was to test diets because food is my main source of enjoyment and nutrition is fascinating to me.  After the first month one of my closest friends asked me to test the diet she was on and post my thoughts on my blog.  I was super hesitant because she’s my friend, and this was her career, and I was afraid if I didn’t have good things to say it would cause a rift.  But I agreed and started nutritional cleansing on May 15, 2017.  Within 4 days it was like someone switched a light on inside of me.  I had never felt so good,  no stomach pains, no bloating and more energy then I had in a long time.  All I could think of was I wanted to tell everyone what they were missing,  I keep thinking does everyone actually understand how good they are really supposed to feel?  Because if they knew what I was feeling they would want it too.

Here I am six months later soaking in everything I can about this lifestyle.  But in order for me to help others,  I have to get out of my comfort zone.  I can’t stay in my nice, neat, square, little box and hope people will just miraculously come up to me and ask me about it.  So I have taken advantage of everything this company and lifestyle has to offer, to better myself, so that I can help others do the same for themselves.  Since this all started I’ve taken two trips to corporate events to learn from some of the best trainers in the business.  For goodness sake I got to see Tony Robbins live!  I’ve listened to countless, amazing stories of how this lifestyle has drastically changed people lives, through weight loss, health, energy and wealth creation.

So when I thought I didn’t have time, I made the time.  When I thought I was done learning, I realized I had only just begun.  There is always time left in your life to really do something that you value and means something to you.  Plus I’ve learned that I’m capable of changing enough at my age to learn something completely new, something I never saw myself doing before now.  I’ve learned that you CAN teach an old dog new tricks, and this old dog vows to never stop trying again.
