I'm always humbled, by the path I've chosen to take in life. It's not always been level ground, I've had like all of you my share of mountains & valleys, BUT, I'd never ever trade my journey for the world. This photo was taken about 5years ago, I've truly learned alot about who I really am on the inside, and I'm not too proud to say it's not always matched how I've looked on the outside. I've learned that my transformation, from the me I was then, and the me I am today has given be a powerful appreciation of life, how lucky we are, and how much we take our bodies for granted. How much our programmed beliefs have screwed us up, mind, body & soul, and how even today I'm vigilant of my inner speech, my self talk, and how I allow people into my life. I've learned along the way that NOT EVERYONE supports our choice to change, that change in me can trigger buttons pressed in those around me, and that you can want people to get why you're making those choices, but it can really push them further away then you expected.
So, as a fitness trainer, I've shared my experiences, with clients and students, encouraging them to not be so hard on themselves, because I've been there. But once again we're all going to experience life with our own unique filters, emotions, and beliefs. I can only encourage them, and you to NO MATTER WHAT DON'T EVER GIVE IN TO THE SELF DOUBT, take a step, and then another, and before you know it you'll reach that place, inside that embraces the outside and when you do, magic begins to happen. And the skin you're in will radiate real true YOU!
