Three days of sickness got me way off track with my new program SO I wiped the slate clean and started with week 1 Day 1 again today!
In the past I’ve given up after being sick - the first workout after is always the hardest and I dread the “I can’t even finish” feeling. But I have a wonderful support system and know that I can’t reach my goals without hard work.
It’s never too late to start - Or in my case restart!
MONDAY MORNING REMINDER: Do stuff you want to do because it’s fun. Make stuff just to make it. Lean into what you’re curious about. The things you can’t get out of your head are there for a reason. Lean into what makes you uncomfortable. Speak what’s true to you and don’t waste any time worrying about the people around you who don’t get it. You get it. You get you. Do more of what makes you happy. Always be kind. Especially when you‘re tired. Be kind to yourself. Especially when you’re tired. Practice gratitude. Pay attention. And remember, in every day and every moment, you can begin again.
10 days until January 31st deadline for the Screenplay Challenge! All submissions receive 50 points of feedback. Keep at it !😺 Details in bio.
3 years went by so fast. I was proud of myself that time, 2015, when I was graduated earlier than most of my friends. I also had my first time job super quick, just within a month after my graduation, well not that kind of dream job but i was happy enough thinking that everything else will be going my way. 9 months later, everything in my life went downhill , let’s say i wasted 2 freaking years afterwards just not progressing on anything. I am boasting my works, songs and unfinished novel, throwing away my time for some stupid dramas that i ended up hurting myself at the end.
Now, Its been a year after i returned to Indo for good from Australia, and i haven’t seen much progress on my career but.. personally, mentally, spiritually i have learned so much things from these past 3 years, and I can see myself matured and eventually becoming wiser to see things clearly, and understand which things to prioritise right now.
Now i know you don’t like to read some melancholy shit, or you want that ‘happy’ kind vibes on your feeds, but let’s be honest here, do you rather see someone being real, being true and express themself? Or just expect them to be fake and please you with all the lies that they can offer? The world has too many fake shits already and i don’t want to be part of it. If you’re experiencing some stressful thoughts and desperate situation, just letting you know that you’re not alone buddy. #cheerup
its never too late to start over and keep on trying! 💪🏻 #NeverTooLate #originalsong #SketchesofFailuresAndHopes #soloproject
I want to start by telling you, I'm nobody special. I'm a normal human being just like all of you who loves peanut butter and chocolate. I have cravings almost everyday. I struggle with high functioning depression. I also have fibromyalgia which makes my body hurt, especially in the pressure point areas. There are a lot of days where I don't want to get out of bed & days I don't want to workout. There are days where all I want is to go order in dinner & eat pizza. There are days when I don't want to leave my house.
That's what makes this healthy lifestyle thing work for me... It HAD to work on my own terms. Countless gym memberships wasted because it just didn't work to leave my house with our crazy opposite schedules and three kids to take care of. I needed REAL food.. you know, the stuff my family will eat too. I wanted this to be long-term and I wanted to focus on healthy foods in the right amounts, with the freedom to live life.
What I didn't realize when I started this I would gain an entire community of friends, an entire support system. Those days I don't want to get out of bed, or workout.. it's that support that keeps me going.
These past several weeks I've been testing out a new challenge with my 'fit crew" that involves providing one-on-one support, weekly topics focused on fitness, nutrition, mental health, self-care, etc. We're focused not so much on the results, but more on the process. Because the results will come, it's the steps to get there that require the most support.
I'm ready to start recruiting to start my next group on February 4 and plan to open up a few more spots to join our amazing crew! I want you to feel confident & proud in your skin. I want to help you learn to view FOOD AS FUEL & I want to give you access to this amazing, inspiring community of ladies!
Whatcha say? You ready to give us a shot? Interest form link in comments!
Daycare was closed today but it was great to get up earlier to get my workout done with some other amazing ladies on line!! Making the commitment to myself to be healthier and workout was the first step!! Take one day at a time as well as one step at a time is what matters!! ~~~~~
We still have room for a few move ladies to take that first step in getting healthy!! Send me a DM if you want more information.
In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been hiding from life. The last few months of 2018 broke me to pieces (I’ll share more at on this another time) and I’ve been hiding trying to figure out how the heck am I going to piece myself back together....
Today, it finally hit me! I just have to do one thing at a time and one day at a time (sounds easier said than done to be honest). So today I’m taking a stride forward and gonna tackle organizing myself.
I’m going to take time to write out what I want out this week and maybe even the rest of this month and break it down into small actions so that I actually do them.
What about you? What have you been hiding from and what is one thing you can take on this this week?
These two #lovebirds
are the whole reason we wound up in #switzerland
wanted to see the #alps
since reading Heidi as a girl. And you know what? It's #nevertoolate
to see your #dreams
come true. As it turns out, their years of operating a bed and breakfast meant they were visiting friends, who took us to the best #picnic
spot ever... a #quiet
little place by a #stream
Don’t spend this week wishing for the weekend! Don’t grab a donut from the break room then say “I’ll try again next week”. Don’t give up on your goals just because it’s cold outside, or because you feel like you don’t have time, or because life’s just been getting you down. STAND BACK UP! You got this!!! If you’re off work or school today for the holiday, use it!! Set some goals. Make a plan. It is NEVER too late to be who you want to be, but you gotta start taking some steps in the direction that you want to go. Let this be the week that you do just that 🦋
Even in Florida we’re dreaming of warm sandy beaches right about now. Like this one in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.... I have a chance to go there in October, and so do you. Want to know how? Let’s chat.
When you clear your mind of everything you have been taught since you were born, all the propaganda the media has tried to brainwash you with, and then ponder about what the truth is? you will find it and you will know what is from God and what is from the devil that mislead you all this time. But those that know the truth don’t judge those that don’t know yet, there was a time when we all did not know something we now know. “(This is) a Book (the Qur’an) which We have sent down to you, full of blessings that they may ponder over its Verses, and that men of understanding may remember”
[Saad 38:29]. “And no example or similitude do they bring (to oppose or to find fault in you or in this Qur’an), but We reveal to you the truth (against that similitude or example), and the better explanation thereof”
[al-Furqaan 25:33]. Talk islam (spoken word) has really amazing inspirational talks ماشاء الله . #truth #islam #muslim #God #Allah #nevertoolate #athiest #science #proof #beauty #love #content #heart #mind #read #book #books #questions #money #tv #clothes #property #think #alcohol #lifestyle #drugs #death #home #quran #music
I spent so much of my time wrapped up in the identity that people placed on me that I’ve never been free to be who I actually am. I was so worried about everyone else’s everything that I realized I’ve been neglecting myself for years. I’m not opting for selfishness. My goal is to get back to a place of authenticity so that I can benefit FROM the people around me and not always feel pressure to be everything FOR the people around me... #growing #nevertoolate #peaceofmind
2009 @fgitoronto #NightoftheStars
(I loved at @gretaconstantine
dress ☺️) when I worked within the fashion industry at a media publishing company and a board member on Fashion Group International. My dream from when I was 12 was to work in the fashion world: glitz, glam, fast paced, beauty, trends, shows, events, cocktails, schmoozing, popularity, VIP, stacks of magazines, racks of clothes, travel & shine! I LOVED it all till I didn’t. It’s a beautiful world, I worked hard and have many fond memories of events, projects & people. A few years ago my world crashed and I suddenly found myself no longer knowing who I was. The identity I thought I knew crumbled in many ways. My values became clear, my passions and strengths began to line up with those values and everything shifted into clarity. Things about my work no longer mattered and I set my sails for a new course. A more intentional direction in my faith, relationships and vocation. I hired a life coach, 2 actually, and discovered ME. The true me. I enrolled in a life coaching course myself and at 50 I said goodbye to the fashion industry as a vocation and said hello to the transformational work as a life coach myself. Beacon Coaching & Leadership became a real, legitimate & thriving business. I now work with many individuals & organizations helping them discover their identity and confidence in service of living a life of fulfillment & joy! 💥
If you are feeling stuck, unsure or curious about discovering your full potential and living an inspired, intentional life with a clear identity then join me for the new Shift Happens series @herplace.co
starting Jan 30, 7pm. DM me for more deets. 💥 💥
p.s. I still enjoy the art of fashion and clothing as a personal outward expression of style! 💋 red lips & toes are still my faves!
