Once upon a time a wonderful, wonderful movement began.
“Each woman is to write an encouraging message, affirmation, sentiment of wisdom, and send them on to another whom they feel needs some encouragement along the way.”
The pants have traveled to:
Far too long ago Then Heather Said typed words that still brings me to tears. I am beyond honored that this wonderful lady sees me as an inspiration and was thoughtful enough to send the Blogging Pants my way.
Just one look at the affirmations on these pants and you can’t help but feel a bit more prepared and inspired to take on the world.
I took on several big life changes while the pants got buried in my closet. I ran my first ultra marathon, ended a long-term relationship, moved out on my own again, did an Ironman, got engaged, left lululemon and moved to North Carolina. I feel terrible for putting the fabulous movement that is the Blogging Pants on hold, but in a way I needed that time to realize the one thing that is most important for me to add to these pants and sign my name to: Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.
The best things in my life have some from tough decisions to leave my comfort zone. Those decisions come with sadness and excitement… and a new strength that prepares me for life’s next journey. When I packed up my life in Orlando and left the job, friends and family I love, my lululemon friends gave me a card and frame with the quote…
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. -Neale Donald Walsch
Every time I visit Ashley’s blog never home maker I am inspired. It’s the little things in her posts that push me to lead a healthier, happier life. Ashley is honest and open and refreshing. Whether she’s pulling herself out of a slump, doing yoga on a office desk, cooking a yummy meal, being conscious of her changing diet or trying life without shampoo, I’m inspired. Life isn’t all about marathon recaps and baking the perfect cake. The way Ashley (and her husband Stephen) tackle life makes me want to make my own life a little more yummy, more creative and more fun.
