Two years ago, I walked into my very first YYCBBG meet up. My stomach was in knots and I was sweating profusely, simply hoping that one person would talk to me. Nearly a year ago, I gladly accepted the role to lead the YYCBBG community. I am so grateful for this group for many reasons - for the strong, courageous women that I’ve met, for the opportunities it has provided, and for the lessons that I’ve learned. After my last meet up in May, I decided to take some time off to figure out how I wanted to move forward. I’m thankful to announce that I have so much more clarity than I did 12 weeks ago.
As of today, I am officially stepping down from my role in YYCBBG. I have decided to pursue another passion, to create a different community for women that is not solely fitness based. It’s called “In Her Circle,” and it is a place for women to come together to create genuine, authentic friendships through various social events and how-to workshops. I wanted to create a space where everyone feels welcome, a space that is more broad and inclusive. Although YYCBBG will always hold a special place in my heart, I cannot ignore this fire inside of me to develop this new community.
Thank you all for your support, and I hope that you continue pursuing your dreams, your goals, and your WHY everyday. •
