Spring Cleaning


This is the first official week of Spring and I guess I felt like there was a bit of "Spring Cleaning" I needed to do. No, it wasn't throwing out clothes or papers, but I needed some rearranging of things in my life.

After a well thought-out decision, I have left my beloved Jazzercise center. It's been a long time coming; but, it's still hard to leave the familiar people, places and things.

I hadn't done this earlier because, well, I was scared. I don't like confrontation. But, it's my time to depart; so, I had to suck it up, put my big girl panties on and do it.

Yes, I am a little scared about leaving. Yes, I am scared that I won't "fit in" at another center, but I'm not there for anyone else other than ME!

Although it is scary, I'm excited about new classes, teachers and opportunities. You never know where this may lead. And if it doesn't work out, I can always move on to something else.

I guess with all of this going on, I decided to suck it up and call my old doctor's office, who I've been avoiding for months, and ask for my records. And I really don't appreciate it when I was asked why I wanted them. Ummm, because they're MINE!!!

So, this is a new beginning for me and I look forward to what the future holds. Have you ever had to do anything like this before?

Be careful they don't charge you for the records... when I switched doctors they gave me my records and I received an $80 bill in the mail. They told me it was the "copying fee" and that the records belonged to them and I had to pay the fee. It was RIDICULOUS!

Good luck with the changes.

Remember with every door that closes another one opens :)

Good for you!!! I like that that kind of spring cleaning;) I agree with MJW. I saw on my daughter's pediatrician's wall a note to charge for a copying fee. It was pricey too. They go off post or it would be free for military.

Go girlie! Enjoy your new jazzercise place and getting your records! I remember when my moma switched "woman doctors" and it was interesting to say the least! I'll be praying for you as you make these changes and that it will be a smoothe transition!

I saw your "check in" last now so now this post makes perfect sense; I hope you enjoyed it, I just wish I could be there to enjoy it with you!!!

The changes will be for the better!

I always hate going to a new workout place. Everyone seems to have their little "group" but after a couple weeks it feels like home :)

Girl. I asked my dr office to transfer my records six weeks before my appt. SIX WEEKS! Then the day before my appt I found out they didn't, so I had to march up there in person and cry for them to just give them to me. I was SO upset!

Holmes said...

How exciting! Just think by switching workout centers you will switch the style of workouts which will ulimately mean your body will be learning new workouts. This only helps you continue to stay fit! Where are you going?!

You go girl...do what you gotta do.

Change is a good thing!
When I got my records from my old ob/gyn's office, the receptionist called me back in to the office because they were worried they'd given me someone else's records sealed in my envelope. That was the final indication that I'd made the right choice to leave! I love my new dr. He is the best! Not many drs will give you their home and cell #s and tell you to call them directly if you ever have questions. Sometimes, the grass really is greener!

You have to make yourself happy! Change is great if you are doing it for this reason!

You are so social, I am sure you will fit in fine. But, like you said, you are there for you, not them! :)

Sometimes it is great to make these kind of changes, scary at first but once it is done you will feel great!

Your post also reminded me that I need to do some real spring cleaning and clean out my closet :)

Natasha said...

yes absolutely! follow your heart and you'll make the right decision... you're on to bigger and better things my friend!!

I hate confrontation too, but I'm sure you will be happy with your decision!

New beginnings are WONDERFUL! :) I'm at that stage in our journey too. When I left my old OB/GYN for our specialist I had the same thoughts and feelings, but it turned into something wonderful. I'll pray the same thing for you!

The Pink Chick said...

Best wishes with all your new beginnings. I need to do a little spring cleaning myself and look into finding a new gym. My old one just isn't cutting it any more, but you are right-it is so hard to leave!

Kit said...

Great job for you!!! New beginnings are sometimes scary but always worth it!

Good for you!! That kinda stuff doesn't really bug me, but I had a dentist office be AWFUL to me one time because I asked for my records. Ugh! Good luck with your new changes :)
