September was a month of heartbreak, ache, and frustrations. My dog, my constant companion, had passed away of heart disease. She was 12. And, I was hoping she would live to 13, which would’ve been Halloween night. My boyfriend and I found ourselves trapped in a problem we still have yet to solve. I wasn’t only experiencing heartache outside myself, but within myself as well. Stress and lack of self love had gotten the better of me and my skin became angry with acne. I hated looking in the mirror. I hated looking at myself.
But, this month wasn’t deprived of good times. In actuality, I’d say that it was almost even. I had seen an old friend, a friend I hadn’t seen in 5 years, and which I wasn’t sure if I would ever see him again. I found new exciting alternatives to gluten and dairy free products, I eased myself with yoga once a week, and I started a wonderful routine of waking daily before 7 am. My boyfriend and I celebrated a year of hard work being together by spending time on the ocean looking out for whales and comforting each other watching a horror flick. I also enjoy his company so much that I have a good time doing the ordinary things in life with him. Lastly, after a whole year, I’ve finally passed my personal training program and now can start training clients. I’m excited for what is to come.
