"Some periods of our growth are so confusing that we don’t even recognize that growth is happening. We may feel hostile or angry or weepy and hysterical, or we may feel depressed. It would never occur to us, unless we stumbled on a book or a person who explained to us, that we were in fact in the process of change, of actually becoming larger, spiritually, than we were before. Whenever we grow, we tend to feel it, as a young seed must feel the weight and inertia of the earth as it seeks to break out of its shell on its way to becoming a plant. Often the feeling is anything but pleasant. But what is most unpleasant is the not knowing what is happening […] Those long periods when something inside ourselves seems to be waiting, holding its breath, unsure about what the next step should be, eventually become the periods we wait for, for it is in those periods that we realize that we are being prepared for the next phase of our life and that, in all probability, a new level of the personality is about to be revealed."
-Alice Walker (I've posted this quote before. But it's too good and too real not to post again). My #wcw goes out to all the ladies that are secure in who they are and where they're going (or at least trying to). It's really hard to become content in who you are in today's society. Everyone apparently has a better idea on what would actually make you happy and everyone has an opinion with how you choose to live your life. My hope for being in the fitness world is to help people feel confident, educated and safe in their fitness journeys. Health is more than just a number on a scale, abs or bulging muscles. It has so much to do with your mental health as well.
If you need some guidance, want to vent or just want to tell your story, I'm always here to help! Never hesitate to send me a message! ❤️❤️ Keep on, keepin on, my sexy friends. You can't make it through life alone. 😘
