Almost a year ago, I was started to suffer from a hip/back injury. It was two years to the date from my first back injury. I did not want to admit I was hurt again. I did not want to look weak again and was afraid to admit I needed help. But the pain increased quickly and soon I could not walk without discomfort.
“How could this happen to me? ” I thought to myself. I felt I learned my lesson from my first injury to prevent this to happen again! I learned the importance of owning my movement and became smarter with my exercise program. The question of why or how I became injured was an unknown. The severity of the pain resulted in three weeks of rest and again I found myself without work. At first I was devastated with this reality, then the memory of how it was a blessing in disguised to the first time I was out of work two-year prior. I learned so much from my experience from being injured (see letting go letting God post in July) and I knew there was a reason for this darkness of being injured and without work.
It was during this dark period I was able to see the light! There where numerous other events that intensified the darkness but I continued to see the light shine brighter and brighter. I saw this light through my clients, family, co-workers, and Ultimate Coach. Through this time, I was able to quiet my soul and find peace with darkness as I kept my eyes on the light.
It was only then I was able to rest in peace and hear a small still voice.
Everything in my life came to a complete stop; work, co-workers, workouts, planning, family, friends everything, which allowed me to clearly hear this voice. The voice that speaks without words can only be heard through peace of mind body and spirit creating harmony within one being.
The voice soon turned into a calling a calling that created a pull in my heart. This pull started a tug of war on my heart for I knew I was about to leave everything to obey the voice. I was devastated with the action I needed to take, for I love life here in Seattle. Seattle you have given me amazing clients, co-works, and friends creating my Seattle family. The calling burns deeply inside me and I cannot ignore this pull. I have a duty to respond by doing.
As I finish this blog, I am finishing my last day at PRO Sport Club. It is a bitter sweet but I am excited for the unknown as I continue to trust in my Ultimate Coach as he continues to speak to me and through me. He is the one who has given my passion for water skiing and for exercise / health. It is through these passions I will shine my Light of Love giving others a hope, a dream, and the courage to believe.
