Takin' the Plunge!

I am FINALLY doing it!! I AM QUITING MY CLEANING JOB!!!! This past week has been a whirlwind of decisions, emotions and business stuff. Let me back up a bit:) In my last post, I was telling you about my wonderful physical therapist and how she encourages me. Well, one thing she said to me last week that I didn't talk about was this "If you keep going like you are, you will eventually get to the point that you can't do anything!" At the time, I kind of shrugged it off, but it just kept coming back to me. I started thinking about why I just kept doing something that is obviously detrimental to my health. My number one reason was FEAR! I was SO afraid that if I quit, we would sink financially. Granted, I don't make that much, but it does help put food on the table. I decided it was high time that I trust God completely and take a huge leap of faith. After prayer and tears and talking with my mom and my best friend~I had made my decision. My mom was very helpful because she also has fibro. I talked with my husband that night and it was official!

Now what? I am actually taking two giant leaps of faith! Not only am I quiting cleaning, but I am also going to start teaching yoga~GASP! A yoga teacher near me sent me a link about this guy that teaches yoga from his wheelchair! What?! Okay, if he can do it, surely I can do it. My therapist has given me the go ahead and I have two places already lined up to teach. Man, things happen fast! I am supposed to start the first week of May. I still have two more weeks to finish out my cleaning.

I am excited to see how my body improves once the cleaning is over and, of course, I am very excited about finally being able to do something I love! There is potential to make MORE teaching yoga than I was able to make cleaning. I am still battling fear of the unknown, but I just have to keep taking it to God. He knows my situation~duh!


  1. Can you hear the big "WOOHOOOOOOO!" coming from the general direction of Stewartsville??! I know this is something you've wanted to do for a LONG time, and I'm so excited to see where God takes you next!

  2. Kim! I'm so excited for you! I wanna be in one of your classes. Are any gonna be anywhere close to me? I'm excited to see how God is going to work through all this! Love the line "He knows my situation - duh!" You crack me up and yes He does know! :) Love you!

  3. How exciting, Congratulations! I know you will do very well.

    I am anxious to hear how you feel once you have been done cleaning for a while. Since giving up my cleaning job I have finally started to feel a lot better.

    Blessings on your new adventure

  4. I am soooooo excited for you! When you talk about cleaning houses, it makes me sick to think how my body would react. You are amazing perservering for so long! I can just manage daily life and that cleaning! So to hear you taking this big step up faith--what a relief for you physically and emotionally! Now don't look back because GOD IS GOOD, GOD IS POWERFUL! He holds the universe in His mighty hands so He WILL hold your family securely! He promises safety and good things to those who love Him!
    i can't wait to read how yoga begins and goes! I am praying for big pain relief for you and a balancing to your body!

  5. Congratulations on your decision!!! I hope you have super full Yoga classes! That is wonderful. I do understand how hard the leap of faith is, that is for sure. You will do wonderful, I just know you will!
