Before you opened the page to this blog today, you made a decision to follow through with your resolutions this year or not. If you’ve had success, I congratulate you. If not…why?

I am grateful every day for what I have. Twenty years ago, I couldn’t have imagined my life now. If I hadn’t made up my mind to change my behavior and trust myself, I doubt I would be writing about resolutions. The key was to become inspired by something that could facilitate rebuilding my self-esteem.
Inspiration is a funny thing. Pain is what inspired me to make changes in my career. After months and months of trying to figure out what I wanted to do after my former business partner and I split, a dear friend suggested I become a fitness trainer for older adults and seniors. A light bulb fired at 600 watts in my head! In order for me to avoid becoming a victim again, I had to change my behavior, go back to school. I made a promise to myself to work harder than ever.
