I am Grateful

I am grateful....- for family and friends new and old who love and support me everyday - for a safe, loving home to raise my beautiful daughter - for the realization that in everything I do I have a choice in at least my point of view if nothing else - for bike rides, long walks, sweaty kettle-bell sessions and the amazing feeling of health and vitality I feel - for nutritious local foods to create dishes big and small to enjoy with those I care about - for the art of photography that ignites my passion - for weddings that turn me to the little girl dreaming of tulle, diamonds, and happily ever after

- for couples that share with me their memories, their lives, their special moments, and their love stories

- for families that call me to help them celebrate their pregnancies, new babies, and lives year after year

- for a world of beauty all around me to inspire me - for the opportunities to grow my business by sharing it everyday through my art and my services - for the recognition of the impact my own words and actions have on little eyes (and big ones too) around me everyday - for teachers and resources who are everyday pouring more and more information, knowledge and encouragement into others to help them achieve success - for a desire to learn and an ability to gather (devour) knowledge - for the freedom and knowledge that I can define my own life through the choices I make, the work I'm willing to put in, and the belief I have in myself, my value, and my dreams!

 

I am grateful everyday for things big and small.

Join Me in my journey to the Ride to Conquer Cancer!

A few weeks ago I spoke in a personal post about my goals to be the best possible version of myself for my daughter, my family, my clients, and myself. Today, I'm thrilled to share with you the next step on my journey.  

About two weeks ago I was out picking up a coffee (ok a hot chocolate with whipped cream - yum!) when I saw a flyer for the 2014 Embridge Ride to Conquer Cancer. After taking a look over it I went wow...a 200+Km bike ride? That's really cool but I could never do it.

 

As disappointing as that initial reaction was, it didn't last long. By the time I reached work a new conversation was going on in my head....

Maybe I could do it...

...would my bike make it through?

Would I make it through?

How would I train for this event?

Do I have enough time?

 

Somewhere in this conversation I came to the simple conclusion...

I have months to train

I'm strong, healthy, and rather stubborn

I will find a way to get a new bike

And I am going to do this!

 

To me this event is about so many different things. It's about being the best possible me. It's about setting an example for my daughter. It's about challenging myself to do something that I never would have believe I could or would do if you had asked me even a few months ago.

 

It's also about supporting an amazing Ontario based charity event that sets goals high for it's participants to make their goal of conquering cancer in our lifetime a reality! I've set my goals high...

1)I will complete this event and possibly the added afterburner challenge of an additional 50Km in Hamilton once we reach camp.

2)I will raise $4,500 or more for this awesome event

3)I will involve my family, my students, and my community in the journey whenever I can

 

From now until the ride (June 7th & 8th) I'm excited to begin training, sharing frequent updates on my personal ride page (http://www.conquercancer.ca/goto/RebeccaNash), and monthly updates here on the whole journey. Join me, your thoughts, advice, and encouragement always pushes me onward!
