fresh living

fresh life vision

about a month ago, i was wandering around in my kitchen–
bringing fresh veggies in from the garden for my lunch,
fermented veggies in jars on the counter,
experimenting with new recipes for eating a raw diet,
doing some dishes,
planning a nutritious meal
–and loving every minute of it!

all of a sudden i realized–this is my PASSION! this is what i LOVE!
maybe i could actually earn my living doing what i love!

so i started looking around and immediately found
the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
one of my girlfriends back East is an IIN-trained health coach.
we always share recipes and excitement about healthy eating
and play in the kitchen together,
and quite a few other friends had been through or were in the program.

then one day, after calling IIN to get my questions answered,
i was consulting with a client, and the subject of food and cooking
wove itself so seamlessly into the Enneagram
and embodiment teachings we were exploring,
that i had no doubt that i could follow
what i really wanted to do with my life,
that it really was my own sacred choice–
that i could free myself from my own limited beliefs
and actually choose to live what i love!!

so, i am!

in a year i’ll officially be a practicing holistic health and wellness coach,
helping others make nourishing choices
to live a happier and more whole life.
looking back, i see that this is what my entire life has been about,
and i’m so excited to deepen my knowledge and be able to share it!

this is how i live brightly.
this is how i am awakening to love.
this is mindful, pleasurable, fresh living.

    1. thanks, Brian! i know, it’s very SP of me, and i think i had to resolve a good bit of my SP compulsions to feel that i could choose this freely and know it would be a truly nourishing choice…


  2. katy, it is so HUGE to discover one’s passion! this is a wonderful blog! love your ending:

    this is how i live brightly.

    this is mindful, pleasurable, fresh living.

    i’ve been on a similar journey this year, and have rediscovered my love of music and my goal is to make music for the joy of it, the innocent sparkling joy. in the past there was either an urgency/constriction or a sense of needing to “make it.” now i’m open to what the universe wants me to do with my music!

    blessings to you, my friend


  3. Hi Katy,

    This is wonderful to hear and I feel really excited for you. It does feel a perfect fit for you. And your Enneagram and DH work will bring SO much more to what you are offering. I have always thought that the obvious link between weight gain/loss/health and being present is seldom made and needs to be.

    How will this affect your EI work? Does it feel time for you to move on from that?

    love & blessings at this time of new beginnings Janette


  4. Oh my goodness, what a logical and nourishing decision!! It comes as no surprise as your whole life has had its trajectory in this direction. Congratulations, Katy!
    As Rumi says “Let what we love, be what we do…”
    I shall be–no, I already am–your first customer.
    Love and blessings,
