Have you ever been in an interview and they asked you "where do you see yourself in 5 years"? I feel like every time someone asks me that question I have an internal panic attack. I have always been the kind of person to have goals and to constantly be working towards something. However once I graduated from University I struggled with finding my next goal. What career path should I take? Should I go to college? Am I in the right job? Where should I live? AHHHHH! The questions were endless and creating goals felt overwhelming. When I started this blog, I felt like I had found something that I truly enjoyed and something that I could set goals around, but again I started to ask myself what's next? After a lot of researching and some serious soul searching I am so happy to announce that I have found my next major goal and I think I'm getting closer and closer to answering that intimidating question - where do you see yourself in 5 years? Let me explain...
I found my University experience to be very broad and full of long essays that really don't relate to my current career or any career I really want in the future. I appreciate the purpose of the University program and degree that I achieved and I am unbelievably grateful for the education and experience but to be honest, I have always looked for something more. I have been contemplating the idea of attending college to learn more about a specific topic or career and after exploring my love of food and sharing ideas with all of you I have decided to do it...I'm going back to school!
Starting in October, I will be attending The Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN). I will be learning from so many amazing professionals and developing my knowledge on nutrition, health, wellness and business. In just one year, I will be a certified health coach and be armed with the skills to run my own business! How cool does that sound?! With my new certification, I hope to continue to share nutritious (and delicious) recipes, write more health/wellness posts, coach clients on how they can live their lives to the fullest, host group health coaching sessions and much more (trust me, I could write a never ending list)!
Stay tuned for more nutrition packed recipes of food that get me through my busy days, wellness driven articles and posts about how you can take control and live your life to the fullest! Thank you for all yours support and I'm so excited to have you along for this crazy ride I'm about to take!
