One of 4 working cats here at the resort. These kitties come out at night to hunt around the pool, they are not interested in attention from people, but this guy let me take his picture at least.
I look terrified in the picture because I WAS!!! I was running from iguanas during our hike and I never realized that I had such a fear of them. This gentleman was letting people take pictures with his iguana.
I told Rick “I want to take a picture with the iguana.” Rick said: “You don’t have to do everything that scares you.” I was dumb founded because I do, I have to look at things that scare me and face them. It’s an exercise I do to prove to myself that so much of what we fear is in our head and that we may not always overcome it but we can try.
I avoided so much in my life because it was scary or uncomfortable. Because of my health journey I have realized that I can do anything even if it’s hard, scary, uncomfortable and even “unreasonable” because I never thought I could lose 50lbs in a year but I did. I never thought I would have a natural child birth but I did. I never thought I would leave my career of 10 years but I did.
Holding this iguana might seem like a small victory but I know that all the small stuff leads to the BIG and MAGICAL stuff!!!! 🎉❤️🙌🏻🔥⚡️🖐🏼😘 #healthcoach#puertavallarta#facingyourfears#mind#body#anxiety#helpful#movement#macros#insomnia#50lbsdown#journey#selfdiscovery
