taunyaelise Celebratory snorkel selfie:)........A few of you who knew how nervous I have been wanted me to post the details. I can't believe I'm sharing this, but here goes in choppy sentences: I panicked, cried, right in the middle of a dang requirement, had to surface, take my mask off, cover my face and sob. I told the instructor I was done. I didn't want to do it. I could sit on the side and wait. He was awesome. Talked me off the ledge.....I went back down. Finished my requirements. Did a little twisty jig and took a deep breath of accomplishment ..... I.Have.Never.Quit. Anything. Like.This.In.My.Entire.Life.
Holy cow, can't believe I panicked like that! Wade couldn't believe it either. I am usually so strong and fierce when it comes to a challenge.... Grateful for persistence right now. I did it!!

taunyaelise Live. Be. And Celebrate who you are!!!........ Ive seen it lately, the sad motion of women bringing down others because they feel inadequate or don't have the same talents that their friends or family have..... I've also seen the strength and confidence that comes when we learn to celebrate EACH OTHERS strengths and realize that each one of our different talents benefits ALL!! ...... Today I Listened to Studio 5 @brookewalker while spring cleaning my studio. My fave guest was Brooke Romney: Momexploresmichigan.blogspot.com you've got to read her post!! She writes about this topic from the perspective of someone who, at one time, felt like we need to dial things down and how she's had a change of : "I Don't want people to dial things down so I can feel secure. My friends don't need to hide their talents so I can feel better about myself. I want to live in a community where women can showcase their strengths and pursue their talents at home and in the workforce without the fear of being or looking "too good."
An unintended consequence of realizing who you are, is that your children see confidence and assurance in your mothering." #readit #shesayssomanygreatthings #canbeeachothersbiggestassets

taunyaelise I'm a huge proponent of mental strength. Not only for fitness but for every aspect of life. I've been working on it lately. Which means I've been reading and studying and trying to implement. I'll be honest I struggle on a daily basis with this. The craziness of our current lifestyles. It's a two edged sword. I love to go and do and be involved with every little thing possible. If there's a challenge you better believe I'm all over it. On the other hand, it means I am usually overcommitted and a lot of times distracted from what really matters most: family, faith, relationships. I'm working in that. I fail just as much as I succeed. But one thing I do have is the Will power to get up and keep trying. Oh man, have I ever been blessed with that. My dad taught me to dig deep. Do whatever it takes. Long hrs of painstaking(seriously) repetition until it was done right. Get up. Try again. And again........ Two things I've learned about mental strength recently: weed out what doesn't matter. And then: perseverance , passion and I love the word "grit" for what does!....#whew #longwinded #mentalstrength #keeptrying #againandagain #rhonnadesigns #rhonnafarrer_app 1mon
