“Sky above me, earth below me, fire within me.”
The quote above is one I live by everyday. The elements of life, for me, are being realistic, and knowing that everyone is put on this earth for their own journey. The fire within me is something that not everyone is born with but I do feel that everyone is capable of having.
This is why having this platform to be able to express my ideas to so many is so awesome! Writing has helped me in many ways…and hopefully my writing will help you all as well. When I write it is usually from a place deep within. When I am struggling or going through something in my life it makes it easier to write about. I always joke that in order to write something real and meaningful I have to be in an “Emo” (short for emotional) state… LOL only kidding, but I do have to dig deep and talk about issues I know so many struggle with and maybe do not talk about.
We are almost halfway through the year now. Wow, how time fly’s… always growing and learning from experiences. I truly feel like life is a journey, and everyone’s journey is different. I have made many decisions in the past that tested my strength as a competitor, woman, business owner and friend. Having the courage to fight for your happiness is not easy, but doing so I have learned many important life lessons. We all have decisions to make and I imagine most of you reading this are making decisions about your lifestyle and fitness health. Struggling with the yo-yo dieting is all too familiar to me and the extreme thought process that sometimes goes in to wanting so badly to change your body. The one lesson learned from these experiences is self-acceptance. Probably the most important, because positive self-body image makes everything possible and allows you to accept yourself while still working toward the body you desire.
I help many women and men lose weight, and get healthy. But I’m just a resource, and ultimately those changes must come from the individual.
Decisions can be tough because they might require a situation to change or the road wanted might be a bumpier, tougher road to go down…but once there it feels so good! Changes are necessary for growth. Life is unpredictable and you never know what is coming next. Don’t ever get too comfortable and always be ready for change.
My 32nd birthday is in a couple months I have been re-evaluating my life. I don’t want to get to the end of my life and find that I just lived the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well. As you become older it becomes so clear who your true friends are. It’s okay for things to change…it allows for toxicity to be removed from your life. I truly feel not being happy in a current situation is not healthy and can cause health issues, stress and anxiety.
You can’t live your life for others…people shouldn’t make you feel bad or guilty for living your life. It is your life so live it the way you want.
This life is so precious. Love and spend time with those closest to you. Do the things that make you happy and make those life-changing decisions that are so hard to make with the utmost thought and care.
HAPPY EASTER!! Spend time with those closest to you and enjoy the day! xoxo
