The year 2014, what a year it has been. I also need to apologise to everyone for being so slack in writing to you each month. What can I say? I will plead forgiveness on the basis of moving from the City to the country. With this, I took on a new career role, reverted back to the original, continued to travel back to Newcastle for clinic; had students from the University of Newcastle, Nutrition & Dietetic Students, and all the while really started to redefine myself as a person, and practitioner. The result....I have decided the following:
Most of all I AM a different me.
For people who have been observing me over the last couple of years, has commented I am more confident, and the law of attraction has reinforced this.
The Newcastle Clinic has grown
The Clinic in Mayfield has consistently grown from a few clients a month to 2 full days a month. The number of people not turning up is almost non existant, and I have been approached by different companies to work with them. The ego swells with being head hunting!!
I have been asked by different organisations to work with them over the year. This included University of Newcastle, Fitness Australia and Bodycare. I have been approached to be involved in a very exciting project next year, but it is still top secret.
Forbes is now open for business
That is correct, business is booming and expanding, which is the other thing that has really taken some time to evolve into. This is predominantly thanks to Uni Students who completed a needs assessment for me to find out if dietetic involvement would be valued. The answer is yes. So, here I stay and develop the opportunities here.
I have been given clean bill of health I get stressed too!!
With the body playing up with a variety of symptoms, aches and pains, exhaustion, and the like (sound similar?) I have been assured, that according to the medical tests I am in good health. What was all the aches, pains and 'things'? My body to remind me to start self caring, which is what i encourage all my clients to do too.
What does all this have to do with my clients, in particular you, the reader?
I am sharing my year in brief to show that i am just like you, human, with the spirit and soul attempting to shine through the body, mind and actions. To give each other the hope that we need at times to keep taking steps to be your true self and respect the higher need to be you.
This may need at times to rest more, to eat differently and more importantly make some really tough decisions about your current set of choices.
Ask yourself the following:
I can help you, with the help of others to. To see who are in my support network, go to Other Helpers and learn how you too can tap into change makers that can help you with your health and life change. One resource I found that kick started the year for me is which gave me the space to dream, and conjure up ideas that had been on the back burner for years. So to kick start your 2015 dream boat.
