Pay attention to the whispers. Have you ever had the same thought on your mind, the thought that replays non-stop? Do you think about it daily? What about weekly? Is it a dream, a goal a desire, something you've buried, but your inner voice gets louder and louder until you can no longer ignore it?
That's how I feel about getting a Master's degree in Nutrition + Health Psychology from Bastyr University. I've thought about it for at least 3 years now + being in that much school debt is what keeps me away from pursuing it. But I know the time is coming to further my education. I have a Bachelor's in Communication, a certification as a Holistic Health Coach, tons of certifications in fitness + yoga, but my desire for learning more is insatiable.
I know that if I can push past my fears of being thousands of dollars in debt, I can apply for some school loans and be part of the millions in school debt. If I view what I owe as a monthly bill, rather than a large lump sum, I can do it. I relate this fear to a client I have who has a lot of weight to lose.
If she continues to view her 60+ weight gain as one large number, rather than losing 3 pounds a week it seems impossible. So I'm taking a tip out of my own book and getting a little closer, inch by inch to my goals, dreams and aspirations. If she can do it, I can do it. If I can do it, she can do it. See how that works? Inspire others, inspire yourself. Inspire yourself, inspire others. All of a sudden, we're all moving forward, loving our lives + no longer staying in Stuck-ville. I hate that place. I'd rather be in Movealong-ville.
