One Year Anniversary - Among Other Things (The Blog)

One Year Anniversary

Life’s milestones sure do sneak up on us, don’t they?


Seems impossible for me to believe, but today marks the one-year anniversary of the day that I left the corporate world and began SoulCycle Instructor training.

It’s one of those things that feels like yesterdays and a million years ago all at once, you know?

A lot can change in a year.


Fast-forward to today: Exactly 365 days later, where I’ve since completed SoulCycle training, relocated away from New York and embraced a new role in Chicago as a Nike Ambassador.

One major pinch-me moment after another… And to think, it all started by embracing an after-work hobby (and ultimately by leaving my job in digital media).


I’m curious: How is everyone doing on their intentions and resolutions for 2016? Still going strong or losing a bit of steam?

If you’re anything like me, “life” tends to catch up to you right around week three in the New Year. It’s freezing cold, inboxes are exploding and despite your meticulously thought-out to-do list, some days just don’t seem to flow.

But, hey: It’s all part of the process — working toward your goals (or even trying to figure them out) isn’t always straight line or a linear path.


It happens to all of us, but on those days that you feel blue, unmotivated or just plain indifferent, remember that the days you’re living right now are (likely) the ones that you used to pray/wish/hope for way back when…

And with that mindset, what are you going to dream up next?


Don’t wait for the perfect moment… Take the moment and make it perfect.  (Or, you know: Just JUMP!)
