It’s been awhile since my last post. I have a lot of updates and reviews for you, my wonderful readers (if you are still reading!)
Here are some of my big life updates:
1. I left my job in SF, CA and moved to Dallas, TX with my husband for a new job opportunity. The moving process was really stressful to be honest but I felt grateful once we arrived at our new apartment. I am in love with my current apartment and the area we live in. Our apartment is surrounded by a beautiful park (man-made, but nevertheless beautiful!), where we can take walks morning and night! Amenities and everything about our place are just perfect that I am really upset that we are moving again (will get into this a bit later in the post). We also took a 5-day road trip from Nor-Cal to Dallas, visiting places like Sedona, Grand Canyon, etc. I think my wish to travel is finally coming true, haha.
2. This is something I’m really proud of: I finished one year holistic health coach program through Institute of Integrative Nutrition about a week ago. Graduation is in two days, so I’m very excited for that! It was a rewarding year, learning about health and myself. This program isn’t just about “how to be healthy through changing your diet”. Health doesn’t just come from eating, but from feeling fulfilled in many different aspects of life: relationships, career, hobbies, spirituality, etc. I learned a lot about myself and how I am still in the process of figuring out what works for me and my body in terms of being healthy and happy. Lastly, (this is something I have to constantly remind myself because I fall off the wagon so much) there is no such thing as perfection. I’m a type of person who goes for all or nothing. So it’s very hard to stop thinking that there is a perfection to everything (which there isn’t).
Anyways, to sum up my experience with IIN is that I am eager to learn more about health and nutrition. IIN got me to think that I want more scientific knowledge to nutrition. I’m not sure what that means in terms of career, but I will definitely be studying more and perhaps getting my masters.
If any of you are interested in IIN program, you can save $1500 off your tuition if you sign up before July 5th, 2014. Please email me at junghwadetlefsen [at] gmail [dot] com if you would like my referral link!
3. My last life update is that my husband and I are moving in the next two-three weeks to Seattle, WA. My husband got an amazing opportunity, so we both decided to leave the jobs we actually moved here for. I will be going back to school and looking into programs at Bastyr University! This move means a lot to me. I am utterly sad because I am in love with our apartment. However, this is an opportunity that I thought I would never have. I’ve been looking into Basyr for the last five years and I always thought it wasn’t possible since our lives were in CA (jobs, friends, family, etc). Now I really believe that dreams DO come true if you think about it and wish for it! :) I still have to take pre-reqs at a community college first, however, because unfortunately I didn’t take enough science classes during my undergrad.
THANK YOU for reading through this long post on life updates!
