I’ve been busy, but it’s time to revisit. Work and training for Ironman left me with little time. But I missed the writing, I missed the helping. There is much to do, and many people are unclear how to do it.
To love what you do professionally while reaching great personal goals is the holy grail to life. I love connecting people with services and products they value. I have been asked to be an ambassador for Sony Action Cam because I have an active/fitness blog and I am a triathlete. I have been in several Lululemon Athletica Long Island email promotions and in social media campaigns because I wear and believe in the products. I have been invited to seven course meal dinners at fine restaurants for my blogging and foodie expertise for my twograpenuts blog. I have been given barter opportunities and discounts at several businesses for my valued opinion and storytelling writing. Right now I have a Yoplait Yogurt Challenge Test on my kitchen table from Klout because I am recognized as an influencer.
I have continued to leverage my influence and network to support the food bank efforts on Long Island promoting Island Harvest. I have been active along with my husband “the running artist” to raise awareness for special needs and autism. I believe communities need all the help they can get and there are plenty of resources. It’s the connecting of the two that makes things happen.
I work hard and live hard. From my triathlon coaches mouth…”No one said Ironman was easy, they just said it was worth it.” Now its time for a rebirth. Change is never easy, but I rarely hear someone regret their future course and growth.
A few months ago I attended a Lululemon Athletica sponsored yoga event at the Long Island Cradle of Aviation. It was a beautiful evening with really special yogis and life coaches. One of the exercises was to write down the 5 words you want in your every day life. These were my 5:
3. One of a Kind
I do not know if these 5 words will change as I grow, but I don’t think they are bad to start off with. I am looking forward to the metamorphosis and to share my journey with you.
