A New Focus for FitTriangleMom

I started a new journey 6-weeks ago. It was something that I have been planning for awhile now– working outside the home. I’ve been blessed to have been a stay-at-home mom for the past 9 years, but my heart has been stirring for a new challenge. I was looking for job-flexibility that allowed me to put my family first and get outside the house and talk and share with people my knowledge of living in the Triangle for the past 16 years. I chose to attend a real estate prelicensing class to become a NC Real Estate broker. It hasn’t been the easiest journey, as NC requires an intensive 75-hour class along with passing a difficult class test and the state licence test. I find myself constantly reciting Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

I am sitting in limbo right now as I wait for the outcome of my class test score before I can take the next step in my journey. Limbo is nerve-racking, but I feel that I’ve found more direction while I ponder the unknowns. I am determined and committed to successfully complete this journey. Which probably leads you to think, “what about the blog?” Well, that’s one thing that I have been sure of through this entire journey.  I’m going to keep blogging, and use Fit Triangle Mom as a resource for the community and clients alike. I have toyed with changing the blog name and focus, but I have decided to keep FitTriangleMom as the blog name. I feel that FitTriangleMom has built a reputation of authenticity of a mom’s perspective on fitness and family life that I knew would carry over well to its new focus–Triangle Living and the people and places that make NC great.

I hope you will bookmark this site and share it with your friends because FitTriangleMom will be a community resource. I’ll still write about local gyms and races, but you’ll also find restaurant, family activities, food/beer/wine, sports and travel reviews. As I work to complete my real estate license, I hope to share with you home listings and real estate tips for the Triangle area. I want FitTriangleMom to be your guide to finding a house and making it your home. Use #TriangleNCLiving when you tag your photos on social media to be featured or find places in the Triangle and NC.
