My name is Elizabeth. My mom swore when I was born and named me that no one would ever call me Lizzie or have a nickname in general; I was named Elizabeth and that was what I should be called. Well, that lasted a solid few years until I went to first grade and my teacher did it♀️I was then called Little Lizzie Lou. Luckily, I was able to graduate from that and Lizzie/Liz stuck around until the 7th grade. Once I got to the high school, I was able to play on sports teams, and in my town all of us elementary kids came from 2 different schools and combined in the 7th grade. This was great, except most of the girls on the soccer team went to the OTHER elementary school and yep, you guessed it, Lizzie, was takenIt was only a few weeks into preseason that eventually, if I wasn’t being called “Natale” or “Lennon” by my coach, the other Lizzie and I were always being confused. So there it happened; Eli was born♀️
I still introduce myself as Elizabeth, but most times I suggest Eli, however if you’re one of the OG Liz/Lizzie people, it just sounds weird to hear “Eli...” and vice versa.♀️
So there we have it, the evolution of my name. But why tell this story? What does it have to do with ANYTHING!? If you’re still with me hear me out. My name never would have morphed into what it is now, if it wasn’t for the people that I’ve had the opportunity to meet and share my life with. So, call it stretch or maybe you still think it’s unrelated, but it only takes one person to change your life. It took me only one decision to let these people call me differently. Think about it. You are one person and one decision away from a completely different life, maybe!? I take that back...STOP thinking about it now. And start doing it. Make the decision to do it and ACTUALLY do it. I can be that person for you if you need ANYTHING. Yes, I love all things health and fitness and definitely can help there, but I’m willing to be more than that too!
