What a difference a year makes

This time last year it was a heatwave.
22’C and sunny all week.

I was out running in shorts and vests and walking in parks sunning myself.

This year it’s baltic, windy and snowing. :-/

This time last year my awesome friend Gill was frustratingly running 5 miles once a week, wanting to get faster, but not able to beat the 45 minute time / 9 minute mile pace.

This year, she’s worked hard, is around two stone lighter and just smashed her PB of 5 miles easily. Running a sub 40 minute 5 mile run this morning with me tagging along!

Last year at this time, I was off work and spent the week sunning myself and contemplating what I wanted to do with my life.

Contrary to how I usually feel, I knew things weren’t quite right, and I decided I needed to make some changes to be who I wanted to be. And to be as happy as I am now with my life.

This year, what a difference. I’ve gone from having a part time job I love (swimming teaching) and a full time job that simply paid the bills but one I had not much passion for…

To having two part time jobs I love (running coaching with Kaizen and swimming coaching), and a full time job which I love and can’t get enough of. 🙂

(in the same company I worked for – I went for it in June 2012 and was selected out of around 60 people who went for it). 😀

Since then I feel like I’ve just grown and grown and managed to keep on top if it all.

I’m working for and with good people who value me, my knowledge and my skills and I’m loving every minute of it.

I’m also helping individuals with private running coaching and my life is now less about me achieving and more about helping others achieve their dreams or improve their lives.

I’ve met lots of new lovely people and I’m fulfilling my goal of working with and helping others, and I’m getting so much from it, it’s brilliant.

Last year I took a long look at my life and decided where I wanted to change things.

I set out my Life Plan with ideas of how I could change what I wanted to change to become happier.

I used my Super Human Test to score how happy I was and give me ideas of where I needed to change things to become even more Super happy or even more Super Lorn.
(I went from 91% Super Human in March 2012, to 600% Super Human this month).

I made lots of little changes, and now I’m in such a good place.

Month by month I’ve made little changes and focused on my goals to achieve them.

I feel very lucky to be where I am, to be able to help others. I’m grateful every day for how my life has turned out.

Now, with everything going so well, I’m looking forward to a new horizon.

I feel confident, strong and happy: able to push the boundaries. So that hopefully I’ll be successful in getting exactly what it is I’m after in months and years to come.

Life is good. Work is good. And play is good.

It’s all good and all is well. 😀

What about you? Is your life good? What changes could you make you become more happy it more Super Human?
