God is working in your life.
Live without hesitation.
Live with purpose.
God has a plan.
Over the years one thing I have learned is that nothing is a mistake. The person who was mean to you, the kind of parents you had or even a abusive relationship you may have been in, is not a mistake. The trials we go through give us strength for our future. It helps with perspective when we are older.
The past few weeks I have really been reflecting on the course God has for my life. As I sit back and think of all the things I have gone through and all the things I have done, I realize they have been leading me to where I am today and where I am going tomorrow.
I wanted to share a few of my own experiences with you to give you hope.
When I was younger there was always something in me that wanted to be a psychologists. No really clue why. There were of course times I wanted to be a ballerina too. Didn’t every young girl want to be one? Anyways, moving on, my focus had kind of shifted off of psychology for awhile and was kind of like what was I going to be doing with my life.
Next came some modeling. It was a huge fad for me for awhile. Determined to make it big but I fell short a few inches considering the fact that I am only 5’2”. It was cool to experience it all. Like, knowing what really goes on behind the scenes. I studied it like crazy. Things such as, do’s and don’t, posing, good agencies versus bad, photographers and much more. That of course sizzled.
My next big adventure was pageantry. Huge dreams of winning a crown at the Miss Ohio Teen USA pageant. No clue where my thinking was there. Never even spent time to research that one. Sounded cool, so I went for it. Getting everything the list had said but never really learning. That of course sizzled after doing two.
Now, I am just getting into fitness at this point. Found Turbo Jam and really just fell in love with it. The passion for fitness really took off from there. I had no previous background in it at all. Most of my days would be spent reading and researching the rights and wrongs of fitness. Then I started to really apply them to my own life. When I became a Beachbody Coach there I never once thought that I would be quitting my full time job. The only thing I can really tell you is that I knew I needed to do it. It was deep rooted in my gut.
My life was about to get bigger then I ever thought it could.
Today fitness is my full time job. From teaching group exercise classes, training people one on one, running online challenges to teaching others how to be leader is all something I live for now. Everything I have experienced in my life has come back in a different form then I could ever even dream of.
Wanting to be a psychologist turned into helping people mentally with controlling food and getting to the root of it all. Pageantry and modeling landed me as a fitness and life coach on a awesome pageantry website www.MichelleFieldLLC.com to help contestants prepare for the stage. At the age of around 22 I really wanted to open up a fitness studio. I did SO much reading on how to prepare for one. It just never happened and I gave up at the time. Not even thinking about the past and how I wanted to have a studio before, I started to build one in my basement. This past week was the official launch of the studio for classes.
My friends, even when you can not see what God is doing or what you are supposed to be, I want to personally let you know it is OK. Keeping walking in his will. Everything will circle around and come back to you in such a way you never even dreamed of before.
Let this motivate you and inspire you to keep going today. You are on this specific path for a reason.
Until next time,
