💫 We are all lost is someway or another! You can spend your whole life finding yourself, but that is what makes life so interesting! Life is just one big adventure of finding yourself and that’s pretty amazing!
This is me! Fit and hardly perfect. “Fitness” has no specific image or body type. Fitness is what it is to ME. As so it should be for you! The look of fitness is that of diverse women of different backgrounds, different height, curves, rolls, skin tone, weight, and attitude. Some of us are outspoken, or shy, or even playful, and some of us tough. Whatever me may be or look like... WE ARE the REAL definition of FITNESS. Fitness doesn’t have to be that perfect body of sweaty abs... no. But is there something wrong with having abs? No, not saying that either. “Fitness” is more diverse than we realize. It comes through the struggles, non scale victories, and mental transformation too. Love yourself as you! Never try to fit in but stand out! Who else is #iamfitness ? Represent! 😘
Day Dreaming... I have no idea what the future holds for me but I know it’s beautiful and full of adventure, laughter and love 💕 I will say though... I wouldn’t be surprised if i was living in another country... my story..... to be continued #exploring#love#fitness#findyourself#sweetdreams
So busy trying to find other things and people. You have lost yourself. So busy trying to care for things and people. You have overlooked yourself. So busy trying to keep up with things and please other people. You have exhaust yourself. Come back and find you. Know you. Get to know you. Take care of you. Be happy for you. That light is inside. Only inside. Find it. Things are distractions. Focus on you. Discover you. People will understand, and will need to find them. Get right within. Be new on the out. Sit in silence. Sit alone. Sit in darkness. Meditate. Sit and think. Sit and listen. Be still. Take action. Then move forward with a new rhythm. Your light will be bright and high. And you will know you have found it. Your search.
"When the time is right you will know it. There will be no hesitation, no doubt. EVERYTHING will make sense." And if it does then it's not the right time. If you are in this type of a state (of confusion, of restless uncertainty) hunker down. Get to know yourself. Become educated in everything that interests you, because there WILL come a time when everything makes sense. When there is no doubt you have found the right fit and you will go for it!
ONE day, everything and I mean EVERYTHING, came crashing down all around me. I had no idea what had just happened but I knew I couldn’t get through it. It was way too heavy to carry. I literally couldn’t even get out of bed. It was an awful season in my life. I was alone, suffering. Silenced by the terrible lies I allowed myself to think. I wasn’t lovable, I wasn’t worthy, not pretty enough, or smart enough. I felt I had failed as a mom, as a wife, as a woman.
It was a season in my life that contained a lot of darkness. I barely ate, stayed in bed all day and felt I had no purpose. I thought that was going to be my story and it was impossible to change it.
Then one day, sobbing in my kitchen, I dropped to my knees and I looked up and said “I just can’t do this anymore, I need your help”. In that MOMENT, a VERY slow shift started to happen. It’s when all these little pieces were slowly being put into my life(certain people, certain experiences, opportunities I never even imagined ). Now, 3 years later, I can see so much of HIS plan. I know in my heart there is still so much more. My story WILL be one that will impact many lives one day. I know that without a doubt. But not on my time, on HIS.
Why am I sharing this with you? I’m human and not just a bunch of squares. And this very SMILE has had a history of pain BUT what’s most important is that it also symbolizes a story of restoration, a story of hope and a story of faith.
For anyone that is holding onto silent pain, I SEE you! I honor you! You are not alone!
Our stories are powerful to connect us to one another. They help others to see that they are not alone in life struggles. I am also here for anyone that needs a safe space to talk. I NEVER want anyone to feel abandoned during a difficult season in their life!! My heart and love go out to all of you sweet friends 💕😘🙏🏻#womenempowerwomen#womenwhoinspire#mystorymylife#godswill#godsplan#trialsmakeusstronger#womenoffaith#honestmoments
Day 28: After spending three straight days in the wilderness surrounded by centuries old trees , handsome horses, mischievous monkeys and adorable pups and kittens, coming back into an overcrowded city squashed in the sea of humanity just didn't work out for me! I was SO stressed. I breathed my way through it but it was an eye opener. When you're on a vacation immersed in nature, you forget that part of the peace you feel is driven by the surroundings. The challenge is to develop that feeling in the heart of external chaos. Ah well. Learning!
If you’re persistent, you’ll get it. But if your consistent you’ll KEEP it! And that’s the difference. Some people will work until they get to their goal and then think that’s the finish line. There is no finish line. You have to keep going. The journey to bettering yourself should never truly end!
Workout in my living room this evening because I had the patio door open and it was AH-MAZING out! And yep, things are a mess... shoes, laundry, work stuff, workout stuff, pup stuff ... all the things. I typically can’t stand clutter because it makes me feel overwhelmed and disorganized but shit happens and that’s just life sometimes. The mess can wait. I took advantage of the perfect evening workout and that’s what matters most! Felt strong, had good energy, my mood didn’t suck, no modifications and had a studly beast to at my side to cheer me on. 🐶 ALL the wins today friends. And you know how I got here... consistency!! Don’t give up even when you’re not being “perfect”, or when life gets hard, or things don’t go your way, or maybe you stray a little off “the plan”. Keep going and keep getting better. You only fail or feel worse when you quit. When you give up. When you know you could’ve done more but you made excuses instead of taking action. You can do it!!!
I love this life, the convenience of my workouts, working on my own time, planning trips, having chats with my team, growing together, taking advantage of moments I otherwise might have to miss... Sometimes I wonder how I get to call this mine. 💕 But oh yeah, I just made a choice and went for it! Because what’s the worst to happen?? I help a few people change their lifestyle habits and get in the best shape/health of their life while I do the same for myself. Um... someone tell me how you lose there?? YA DON’T!! If you ever want to know more about what I do & if you could be a good fit for our L.E.A.N. SQUAD Coaching Team, message me.💕😚
