“There are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened.” —John Richardson.
For a few years in my life I flip flopped between letting it happen & wondering what happened, and I realized later that those were the biggest wasted years of my life.
Started by taking control of my feelings & what I believed about myself. After months of working to build my self confidence, I finally decided that nobody's opinion of me mattered more than my own & I chose to make my own, one of strength.
Moved on to business & carving my own path rather than witnessing from the sidelines how it's being carved by other people. I decided that fear was not worth a life of mediocrity & kept moving, dealing with one stumbling block at a time.
Now I'm at the body portion, where I make working out happen 6 days a week. I haven't worked out consistently in over 10 yrs & sucks like hell, but I'm committed!
If change & choosing to make this happen were easy, we would all be doing it. My journey has been full of set backs & failures. From bankruptcy to divorce, deaths & lots in between, I've been through depression & anxiety, but ultimately chose to believe that none of those things were better or stronger than me.
Life will push & pull, test every bone in our body & every bit of mental strength we have. But we are so strong, we have no idea sometimes how strong we are! And competent. And able to change things, move things, and make things happen for ourselves.
Through thick & thin remember that & choose an attitude of strength.
If you read this whole thing, I ❤️ you and appreciate you! Sending you good energy for a week of success!
