“I just don’t feel good” — I have never openly spoke about this in detail…not in true detail, so please bear with me as I try to get this out.
I realized this past weekend that no one really knows what that means when I briefly, nonchalantly mention it to people in passing, “I get sick”. And that is mainly because it is something I’ve spent most of my life being ridiculously embarrassed by.

So many people ask me how I get motivated to write, or go to the gym, or do my work even though I really don’t have anyone to answer to but myself.
And the answer is, I’m not always motivated.
I don’t always want to.
It’s not always convenient or exciting.
But I do it anyway.
Honestly, I don’t even allow myself another option anymore. Continue reading “What If You Just Did It Anyway?”
Control what you can control.
One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned over the past few years was to stop letting shit that was out of my control upset me.
It’s not an easy switch to make but it’s one that will literally set you free.
You see, you can’t control other people’s actions so trying to will just leave you chasing your tail and frustrated…and probably super disappointed.
You also can’t control people’s reactions to what you do or what you say. But what you CAN control is your own reactions, your own actions. Continue reading “Control What You Can Control”
I remember a time when going to the gym was the last thing I ever wanted to do. When cancelling a training session was always an option when my day was going bad or I wasn’t feeling well.
Oh how things have changed…
Now, the worse the day, the worse I feel, the more I want to be in the gym. The more I want to put my headphones on, stare myself in the face, and prove to myself how strong I really am.
Today I feel like a zombie.
Pouring myself into my clients for over 16 hours this weekend drained me (and lit me up, but energy hangover like whoa).

What do you start your day with each morning?
>Puppy snuggles because they make my heart happy and once the day gets going, I don’t always have a chance to stop and snuggle them when they want it.
>Journaling to clear my mind and get my creativity flowing. You can’t expect to control your thoughts when you don’t ever sort through them. That’s like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
>Visualization to keep my reality matching my dreams and to make sure the universe and I are on the same page about my desires. Because if you’re not clear about what you want, you’ll never get more.
>Reading something that makes me smile and sparks something deep within me. I don’t always spend a lot of time on this because I don’t need to. I read until I feel satisfied. And it’s rarely from the same book each day.

The truth is: it happens to the best of us. We all have days that are just hard. Moments where it all just weighs down at the same time & simply feels HEAVY.
When you’re passionate about what you do & are committed to living your life your way, you pour yourself into it & sometimes, no matter how much you try to avoid it… it gets heavy. Even if it’s just for an evening, it happens.
Today was one of those days. It’s been an amazing week. So many great things happening in my business, I haven’t felt super well but I’ve been pushing through & taking care of business & me very intentionally. But around 6 pm after literally crossing the 34th thing off a 72 item to-do list filled with left over tasks from the past 10 days & my 4th extremely tough workout, my mind, my energy, & my body said NOPE. That’s it. It’s time to sit down. Continue reading “Heavy”
