My motivation on this Monday is from this chick. That was me at Fitness America in '14...my very first show. In true Brittany fashion, I was like...why not just jump in the deep end & make your first show an International one? Go big or go home! Thank goodness I was home. It show was at @goldennuggetlv. That helped out a bit.
For real...I was going through some thangs. I was kinda broke. I didn't have any trainers or anything. I just went for it. Made it all up & had fun. I was nobody in the industry. I didn't have sponsors, except for @freshpeachesbikinis who somehow thought it was a good idea to be my bikini sponsor (and I will always be thankful to them b/c I may not have had anything to wear up there). It was then, I realized how creative and good I was at making my own costumes and stuff. That's when I fell in love with the LA Garment district and I realized how fun it was to run around like a crazy lady with very little $$ in search of THE perfect fabrics and crystals to make the perfect outfits to compete with the best of them.
I didn't really have a clue. No expectations. I was there for a good time, not a long time.
It was a legit fake it til you make it kind of time.
Either way, I was Good. I pushed thought some stuff to get up there on that stage. And we made it!
I was Top 5 in the World! 2x in the same weekend actually. Say whhaa...?!? I know. I couldn't believe it either.
There was no turning back after that.
Looking back at this whole journey, it has been interesting. It was just fun in the beginning, but over this past year it had taken on a whole new meaning. I'll tell you bout that later though. Right now, just reminiscing.
Less than 5 weeks and we will do it again. This time, it's way more than just for fun (although, it is still fun). More important than for big trophies (eventhough I still want em).
Happy Flashback Motivation Tuesday or whatever.
