The choices we make in our life are a direct reflection of our self-beliefs.
Over the years, I’ve had many personal conversation with people who are working towards their goals and dreams, but who are stuck within their self-imposed limitations.
You know how I know this?
Because you are reading the words of one kick-ass Dream-Blocker.
If my journey to my goals was a pretty little sun kissed path flanked with arching trees and cute little frantic butterflies, I was there with a chain saw blocking my way.
I truly couldn’t wrap my head around it. I thought: “I really want this! I want to change my life. I want to feel comfortable in my skin. But I really like fries.”
ha! Oh my girl, it’s not about the fries.
I now have the gift of hindsight, which is often the case when you spend a lot of time wading through the muck of life.
I didn’t believe I actually could.
As parents, we have high hopes, aspirations and dreams for our children. Yet, we don’t put the same level of importance on our own aspirations.
For me, the journey to lose the weight had nothing to do with society’s standards of beauty and what my body “should” look like.
It was a journey of self-love.
Our bodies are actually designed to move, jump, run. We were not made to sit on the sidelines of life nor from a couch experiencing life through a TV.
Our spirit needs to be fulfilled with purpose…and our destiny and purpose is a great one my friends. We have the power over our perceptions.
The mind must be challenged as well to fight complacency found within mediocrity. Have you ever been told “You’ve changed” like it’s a bad thing? Of course we change, if you stay the same then that’s a stagnant state. Growth in character requires work. Remind yourself often of who you are as a person, the values you hold close to your heart and then align your choices with those values.
So who do you want to be? Go and be that.
Do not settle for a life or health that isn’t conducive to who you know you can be. The person you are within. Your life is not one of mediocrity, one foot in front of the other, a ground hogs day of struggles. If that’s the case, get out of your own way and choose differently. Even through the trials in life, it’s within our control to grow because of them. Be thankful for the darkness, it will create a love and deep gratitude for the light.
Please don’t be the blocker of your own dreams. Love yourself just as fiercely as you love those in life most precious to you.
Have a ridiculously amazing day!
From my heart to yours,
