As 2015 gets into full swing I have new goals of my own. I have been so very fortunate to share Monday and now Sunday nights with so many nail superstars. I have been fortunate to share this adventure with the Nail Talk Radio team. Our boss lady Athena Elliott as I like to call her, our wizard of links and now co-host Braden Jahr, our tweet street reporter Jenn Cherry, our Instagram and social media whiz kid Cait Widemeir and our guest coordinator Ellen Torches. We have had countless adventures together and it has been an incredible ride. I am thankful for each and every opportunity I have been able to squeeze in with the Nail Talk Radio crew. So with that said, it is time for my next adventure. I will be leaving my post as marketing segment producer but will be staying on as a consultant for the show.
My life has directed me to a new path that I have been pursuing for the past year and it is time to give that dream the focus it deserves. I have been studying with a spiritual director this past year in hopes of becoming one myself. The Ignatian spirituality institute is a program organized around three major areas of study. Theology and scripture, Spirituality and Psychology and communication skills. The study involves the retreat which I have been working through and two years of study at the Ignatian spiritual institute at John Carrol University. The institute offers adult Christians of any denomination theological and spiritual tools for deepening Christian life and ministry, whether in the home, parish, congregation, or workplace. After many years of working and consulting I have come to realize a few things in the hearts of those I work with. IN some cases their business is not right because their head is not clear and their head is not clear because their heart is burdened. Being the A type personality I am, I have chosen this path to get to the heart of the challenges we all face and to provide tools and instruction for the deeper work of faith. As service providers we are called to serve, and I am compelled to this higher service. I will still be around, visiting nail world on occasion and posting informative and uplifting ideas and strategies. This shift has been in the works for a while but with the passing of our friend and mentor Vicki Peters I was reminded life is short. We don’t have the time we think we do and lifes work is calling. Thanks to all the listeners that have made my time with Nail Talk Radio so very rewarding. Those of you that would like to follow my journey are welcome. I will still be posting on my blog Adventures of a Pro Beauty girl although probably not as often. My wish for you all is to discover your true passion, nurture it and step out on faith even if you don’t have a clear structured path. In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Faith is taking the first step, even when you don’t see the whole staircase. So here’s to 2015 and stepping out.
