✔️Certified personal trainer. #realtak
Today is another milestone for me as I completed my training program. I spent a lot of my life forcing myself to choose a career that I didn't actually want - nursing. I spent 5 years getting my Bachelors of science in nursing but am not currently a practicing nurse. Whether it was for financial gain, self-pressure, or expectations of family or friends... I felt so burdened to try and love pursuing a career that, to be quite honest, I didn't even like. I wore a smile on my face the whole time, but internally I was miserable. The last 2 years I have put the pursuit of money & expectation aside to spend time pursuing education and experiences that I am wildly passionate about - travel, fitness, edit & design, ministry, sports, media, & photography.
Leaving my comfort zone & sacrificing some luxuries to pursue things that I was passionate about was the best decision I ever made. I can honestly say today that I don't have to act like I like what I am doing - bc I truly love everything that I do. I finally get to be myself and own my smile.
Live bold. Pursue your passions. Never stop chasing your dreams. Love you guys!
