Well, wouldn’t you know that things are a changing again in my household? My oldest have moved out, my husband has been working back at shore duty, and my youngest and I have developed somewhat of a routine in our day. So I feel I have a bit more peace, and am also heading on a road to better health.
Speaking of health, and lets bring wellness into it, I have discovered a training course for something that I had not given much thought to before; becoming a Wellness Coach! If you have been a reader of my blog since the beginning, you might remember that I had been studying to become a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner for a while. It is still something I am interested in, however the program I wanted to do ended up doubling its tuition by the time I had the time to do it. No matter at the time though, I had enough on my plate anyway, and was starting to enjoy being a stay at home mom, which has been a lifelong dream of mine! I decided I would just focus on being a mom and wife for a while, and bask in the glory and chaos of it all.
In the meantime, I had come across another training program several days ago that caught my interest. It was for becoming a Wellness Coach. What the heck is a Wellness Coach? Is it like a Health Coach? I was curious, so I started to check it out by doing what I love to do, research! Turns out, it is something I have been dreaming about doing for a while, and I didn’t even realize it. It combines what I love to do, which is to help people, with what I love to study, which is nutrition, health, and overall wellness! So it goes beyond just nutrition, but involves lifestyle and even spiritual health as well! Oh my goodness, I am so excited!
It turns out the tuition for this program is less than the former program I was looking at, and involves so much more! I feel really confident since I have already studied a lot of the material for the Nutritional Therapy Program, and I know I will continue to learn more in that area, so it makes so much sense to get all the additional training to really help people change their lives for the better. I have even started my business plan!
So what about being a stay at home mama? Well, the great thing about being a wellness coach is that with a good foundation, I will be able to work from home on my terms. I am aware that it will take time to build a business, and will be getting training on that as well, but it is okay! You remember my posts on money? My husband and I are in a pretty good place financially, and have a good financial plan in practice, so we are able to maintain a great lifestyle whether or not I am making an extra income. It may take a while anyway to save up the tuition, but I am hopeful that we will be able to so in a timely manner.
So there you have it folks, the next step in my journey has begun. I am so excited to see what God has in store for me in this season of my life!
