2009 Client Appreciation Holiday Party

Last Thursday evening I threw a party for my awesome clients. I rented out Aldos restaurant on the harbor and had the chef prepare delicious Paleo cuisine - salmon, roasted chicken, steamed veggies and tons of various salads. My goal was to spoil each and every client of mine. I was hoping all of them would be able to come, but as hard as I tried, I was still missing 13 clients :( --
I had a lengthy speech I was going to say, but looking over everybody enjoying the food and the conversation - remembering where each of them were when they first came to me - replaying various moments in each of their lives that I became a part of them I was deeply moved. I literally held back some tears for quite a while before I just let em go! I told my best friend and my sweetie that if for some reason God took me home after the party I would be a peace because I just spent a few hours with the super important people in my life. I feel accomplished - like I am leaving a legacy behind. Like I made a difference in every persons life that was in that room. I am not saying that because Im trying to toot my own horn - believe me - but I just felt like I had a purpose. In that moment, in that room, I had a purpose......everybody was laughing, healthy, happy.....and I had a little to do with that.

Maybe my life hasn't been a waste afterall? I look forward to taking my amazing athletes on many adventures of me spoiling them in the future....paintball fights, bbqs on the beach, camping.....whatever. These people add meaning to my life and I could never repay them enough for that.....

I love all of you!

What made it even more special is that Erik was here:)

I can certainly attest to the fact that you have absolutely made a difference in my life; for certain. If I hadn't met you, I would still be in the same stagnant place with food issues and it is such a blessing and a gift to have you for a who cares so much for others health and general well-being. I am TRULY thankful for you. Thank you so much for all that you have done and continue to do daily. Love you!
