#tbt 5 days out from CBBF Nationals 2016
I saw an influencer I know post about helping a homeless man and some guy roasted his actions saying that they were in vain for attention. At the end of the day, whose actions are changing the world? The troll or the good Samaritan, regardless of his or her intentions or what others perceive the intentions to be. Lead by example to sow the seeds of change within those who are ready to give more to help others. The more we share the examples, the momentum changes the world slowly but surely.
I see you Putting in the work Grinding it out everyday A "labour of love' Some might say And to your dismay How you sometimes trip & stumble along the way Mistakenly believe that ALL your work was done in vain Please hear me when I say Never under estimate the power that comes from DECIDING The power in chosing a new thought Right here Right NOW Today! The power that comes from the momentum you've built Each time you learned to PIVOT away You KNOW success comes from keeping at it And there's zero power in trying to replay What got you in that mess anyway Oh no girl You're too practiced now To get caught up on that low vibe train Ok! Even if just one women has the courage to believe That impossible is just an illusion You will help her plant a new seed Believe that she too can become what she desires to be, do, & have You can help set her free Do you fully understand the power your determination has?!! What seems insignificant to you Can inspire to no end Do it for her Our daughters Our mothers Our friends For women like you & me But especially for YOU Brave girl Our world needs to see more strong women like you Vulnerable Sometimes messy And won't accept feeling anything less than their best Women who fall Sometimes HARD But always rise back up Women who are learning to love themselves again The world needs you today So please show up! 🙏
You might have a bazillion likes, followers, sponsors, or trophies and yet still feel lonely because you don't really connect with people in real life or on a deeply meaningful level. When your happiness is conditional on getting a positive (or even negative ) reaction/response from people, craving more and more of their attention creates attachment and suffering. Your soul wants connection, your ego wants fuel. Only one of these truly does the mind and body good.

Cheryl was referred to me in September 2016 by a personal trainer from her gym who happened to know me, and we've worked together "online coaching" ever since. No doubt she has undergone an amazing transformation, and even though she reached her goal weight years ago, she loves the accountability that online coaching provides to her so that she doesn't slide back to where she was. Cheryl has been so great to work with and is diligent about getting her checks ins to me each week. We're working on adding more mass to her tiny frame... There's more good things growing here 🌱💪 Before 133.9 lbs vs. Today 117 lbs.
We are the girls with anxiety disorders, filled appointment books, five-year plans. We take ourselves very, very seriously. We are the peacemakers, the do-gooders, the givers, the savers. We are on time, overly prepared, well read, and witty, intellectually curious, always moving… We pride ourselves on getting as little sleep as possible and thrive on self-deprivation. We drink coffee, a lot of it. We are on birth control, Prozac, and multivitamins… We are relentless, judgmental with ourselves, and forgiving to others. We never want to be as passive-aggressive as our mothers, never want to marry men as uninspired as our fathers… We are the daughters of the feminists who said, “You can be anything,” and we heard, “You have to be everything." ~ Courtney Martin #enough
I used to worry a lot about what people would think about the things I post. I still do from time to time. And likely a part of all of us always will. That's human nature to care about the connections we make. The real question is.... the only thing that even remotely matters in this life is... why do we feel that way about ourselves? It's so uncomfortable to go there and so we deflect by putting our insecurities onto others or judging them. It's been a real time of growth for me the past few years to be able to sit back and reflect on what my worries or judgment of others means. IG is like a huge mirror reflecting back to us. It can make us miserable or it can help us grow. You choose.
