Recently I have been sharing my story a lot more openly. I have experienced immense growth over the past year and it made me realize how little value I had in myself. With that growth came the confidence to share my story and though sharing my story I have attracted other women who are currently in the position I was just over a year ago.
It's not a coincidence that I have this platform.
It's not be coincidence that I have this voice, this story..
And it's definitely not a coincidence that my shift in attitude and mindset is impacting others.
God gave me this as a gift. A gift that he meant for me to share with you!
Nothing is by chance, you follow my blog, you follow my Facebook or you know me personally, whatever it is, I'm in your life for a reason. And I'm not saying this because I think I'm great -- I'm saying this because either you or I have a purpose in each other's life. Maybe my purpose for being in your life is meant to be a form of connection to one of your family members or friends who needs help with fitness, or nutrition. Maybe your purpose in my life is to test me, to tell my why my blogs suck and to help me see even more growth. Whatever the purpose is, it's there and it will either serve us now or later, short term or long term.
But I've found that sharing my positivity, my struggles, my mindset, my passion for health and fitness has served a purpose in a lot of peoples lives. The transformations I've be honored to see my clients get have evolved into more than just the physical. They inspire me with their feedback about mood changes, energy levels, confidence, self worth.. and it made me realize my focus is shifting.
I will always promote health and fitness -- but I'm starting to understand how God wants me to intertwine health and fitness with women empowerment. Which literally means: The process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one's life and claiming one's rights.
My heart is racing -- That means passion. That means there's a break through happening in my mind.
I want leave this earth having helped one woman feel empowered. One woman feel beautiful. One woman regain their confidence, or know even what it's like to be confident.
You guys... I used to walk into a room with my head down, fearful of what people thought of me. I didn't think of myself as valuable or impactful to anyone..I feared raising my hand in class or presenting in front of students I had known for years... and look how far I've come, not by chance, not all by my doing BUT HIS.
The biggest thing I can share with someone struggling is to trust. Have faith. If you don't believe in God, have faith in the universe. Let go and just breathe. If you hold so tight onto where you're at now because you're afraid of what will happen if you change, then nothing is going to change. You may be afraid to try self improvement tactics for fears that it won't work, for fears that you're going to stay right where you're at... but if you don't try you're giving yourself that fear anyway, right? You're going to stay right where you're at.
If you're struggling with confidence, self esteem or body image issues and you're reading this right now, that's the universe giving you a sign.
Health and fitness can help you lose weight, yes. But it can also increase your mood, energy levels and confidence. With these changes I encourage my clients to reflect on how they're thinking -- you can control that you know? How has their thinking changed and what can they do to help their mind catch up with the transformation their body is experiencing?
In next months Pretty Tough Girl Fit Club we're going to be focusing on feeling EMPOWERED. Treating ourselves right mind, body and soul. If you're reading this and you need some development in all pillars of health, reach out to me.
