I SWEAR I’M ALIVE, Y’ALL! 😂 I completed one full weeks without posting a single thing to Insta and let me tell y’all... it was actually pretty nice, lol.

I am stubborn and hard headed, and I have learned this (repeatedly) the hard way; don’t fake being ok. You only hurt yourself by doing that. Be real with what you are going through. Just don’t let it consume you. And always, always, always move forward ✨🔥🤘🏼 . . . . . . . . . . . #selfcare #selflove #loveyourself #itwillbeok #goalgetter #goaldigger #bossbabe #bossbabequotes #bossbabesatx #girlboss #bodymindsoul #atx #atxlife #atxliving #atxlifestyle #atxlove #tinysharkshit #thegemmaisabell #quotes #quotestoliveby
“You are under no obligation to look pretty. Pretty is not the rent you pay as a woman to live in this world [but if you like looking pretty and dolling yourself up because YOU feel like a BAMF chick who can take on the world (and then some!) while wearing 6-inch Loubs and killer red lipstick, then why the fuck not look pretty while you kick ass if ya want, ya know?] 😎✨🔥🎀 . . . . . . . . . . #selfie #snapseed #snapseededit #sitstillandlookpretty #prettygirlgang #girlgang #selflove #loveyourself #mondaymood #mondaynight #monday #mondayquotes #atx #atxlife #atxlifestyle #atxliving #atxgirls #atxlove #tinysharkshit #ootd #thegemmaisabell

You are responsible for either your failure or your success. It’s that simple. Whether it’s a fitness goal, an attitude goal, or a professional goal, it’s all up to you.

Back to business 😎✨🎀 Sometimes I have a to-do list so long that I feel like it’s never going to get done.... next time you have that experience, prioritize the TOP THREE tasks that MUST get done that day and get to work; watch how productive you actually feel at the end of the day because the tasks that make a difference were actually accomplished! It really IS that simple :) Mondays my absolutely favorite, y’all.

#SELFIESATURDAY time to take a good look at yourself and ask; am I playing victim and basking in it while complaining about how terrible my life is, or am I taking all the bad shit that happens to me, learning from it, and building with the bricks that are being thrown in my direction???

“Hey, will you take a picture of me?

Get up, dress up, show up, and never give up 🔥. The number one killer of goals and dreams isn’t a lack of knowledge, skill, or talent; it’s simply quitting. It’s ok to not feel like you have everything figured out (god knows I hardly ever fucking do!) but do not EVER tell yourself “maybe”. Doubting yourself is the first mistake. Go out there and make shit happen instead. Jump with confidence that you’ll land on all fours, and then figure out how you’re gonna do that on the way down. Lessons and skills learned this way are seldom forgotten. Trust me 😎. Hope everyone has a phenomenal Friday! 🔥🤘🏼👑🎀 . . . . . . . . #tgif #friyay #friyayvibes #fridaymood #motivationalquotes #motivation #quotes #quotesdaily #quotestoliveby #inspirationalquotes #dontgiveup #neverquit #perserverance #growth #instaquote #lovewhatyoudo #atx #atxlife #atxlifestyle #atxlove #atxliving #thegemmaisabell #tinysharkatx #tinysharkshit
Always be the best person you can be. Be kind even when you’re tired. Be understanding even when you’re angry or sad. Do more than is asked of you and don’t ask for anything in return. Don’t silently expect anything either. Do things with and from your heart, or don’t at all. Listen when someone talks, but REALLY listen, don’t just listen enough to respond. Tell people you love that you love them, and tell those you appreciate how much you appreciate them. Go out of your way to do things for people. Be the best fucking person you can possibly be, and when you mess up (because it’s GOING to happen), make up for it as soon as you possibly can. One thing you should never do? Never spend your time trying to prove to anybody your greatness. Your actions will speak for themselves. We only have limited time on this earth, so don’t waste it. If someone doesn’t see your light, don’t worry, nor curse them. Let them follow their path, for their light may simply shine elsewhere. But always know that like moths, good people are attracted to flame and to light. And they will come. Hope everyone is having a beautiful Thursday 🔥🎀♥️ . . . . . . . . . . #life #lifequotes #quotes #inspirationalquotes #inspiration #bekind #bekindalways #loveeachother #respecteachother #bethegood #grateful #motivationalquotes #thursdaythoughts #thursdaymotivation #thursday #tbt #belight #bethebestyou #atx #atxlife #atxliving #atxlifestyle #atxlove #atxlocals #atxgirls #femalefilmmakers #tinysharkshit #tinysharkatx #thegemmaisabell

Be YOU. Do YOU. For YOU. I’m not saying be a selfish asshole who doesn’t care about anybody else but themselves (I mean, I guess you could if that’s what floats your boat, but good luck building solid, meaningful relationships of any kinds doing that, lol), but take time to do things for yourself. It’s ok to say no sometimes to stay in an read a book, or catch up on your favorite show, or hang out with your dog 😊.

“I never lose. I either win or learn.” Nelson Mandela . . I know I’m late one the date (eyyy, that rhymed!) but I had to make sure I mentioned this because this philosophy is a fundamental part of who I am as a person. Instead of looking at your past failures in a negative light, learn to see them as what they have always been: LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES. That’s not to say that it’s ok to live your life fucking it up as much as you want and not taking responsibility for your actions, no. But don’t be so hard on yourself when you mess things up. Take the time to evaluate the situation, figure out what you as an individual can do better next time, and move forward. I love sharing thoughts like these with you guys not because I believe I’m some sort of beacon of perfection or someone to look up to or follow, but because I take pride in being openly imperfect and a perpetual work in progress. Every day striving to be a little bit better to ourselves and to each other. Every day being a little bit more of the best we can be. Hope everyone has a great, SAFE Saturday night! 🔥🤘🏼🎀♥️ . . . . . . . . . . #saturdaynight #saturdaysarefortheboys #nightlife #atxnights #atxnightlife #girlswithtattoos #inked #inkedgirls #ink #nelsonmandela #nelsonmandeladay #nelsonmandeladay2018 #winorlearn #atxlife #atxliving #atxlifestyle #bossbabe #bossbabes #bossbabesatx #girlboss #alwayslearning #tinysharkshit #thegemmaisabell #goaldigger
Who am I to talk? I have a HELL of a long way to go. But this year has been a major game-changer for me in all realms, particularly the professional. . Although I came to figure out what I wanted to do with my life almost two years ago, it wasn’t until I started holding myself accountable, making the difficult choices, and STOPPED MAKING EXCUSES FOR MYSELF that I started actually seeing forward movement in the direction of my goals. . Like I said, I still have a long way to go; goals to define, habits to break. But I can say with confidence that everything started to become real once I decided to take that first step (even thought I had no idea what I was doing 😂). . Trust yourself. You’ll never know what you’re capable of unless you go for it! 🔥🤘🏼🎀 Hope everyone is having a wonderful Saturday! 😊😘♥️ . . . . . . . . . . #saturday #motivation #motivationalquotes #dailyquotes #dailymotivation #dailymotivators #quotesdaily #quotes #quotestagram #actionsspeaklouderthanwords #justdoit #goalgetter #goaldigger #goaldiggers #bossbabe #bossbabes #bossbabesatx #girlboss #atx #atxlife #atxliving #atxlifestyle #atxwomen #thegemmaisabell #filmmaker #atxfilmmaker #videographer #atxvideographer #tinysharkatx #tinysharkshit

This week is most definitely the most backwards week of my summer, so y’all are going to have to bear with me and my off hours posts 😬. Y’all we’re all busy. But no one is ever really busy enough to not have time to do something that actually matters to them. I learned this the hard way, wasting time and energy on both people who didn’t value or respect me, as well as on things that were just not priorities to my journey, yet I felt obligated to do. Quit making excuses on why you’re not going to the gym, or starting that next project. Walk away from people who don’t value and respect you enough to make you a priority. You have better things to do with YOUR time. So be selfish with it. You’re never getting it back once it’s gone. Love y’all ♥️ . . . . . . #time #priorities #nevertoobusy #quotes #quotesdaily #quotestagram #quotestoliveby #wednesdaywisdom #wednesdays #wednesdaymotivation #wednesdaymorning #wcw #wcw 😍 #womancrushwednesday #atx #atxlife #atxliving #atxlifestyle #thegemmaisabell #tinysharkatx #tinysharkshit
“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” - Seneca Another one of those days when I can’t believe things are happening, that I must just be a lucky person. And then I remember how many nights out I’ve missed, how many hours I’ve put in, how many friendships have suffered, how many potential relationships have disintegrated, how much work the last few years have actually been. Luck? Lol, no. More like hard work meeting opportunity. To quote the great philosopher G-Eazy “this shit ain’t random, I didn’t get lucky”. Put in the work, y’all. Follow your passion, and put in the work, and watch how opportunity starts showing up when you least expect it. I am so grateful to those who have given me opportunities, as well as to every single one of you who find my content and shenanigans worthy of your attention. Thank you, thank you, thank you 🙏🏼. Now your girl is tired, so she’s gonna go to sleep. It was a great fucking Monday, y’all 🔥 . . . . . . . . #mondaymotivation #motivation #tuesdaymotivation #tuesdaymorning #tuesdayvibes #tuesday #tuesdaythoughts #motivationalquotes #luck #lucky #hardwork #workhardplayhard #workhardplayharder #thegrind #filmmaker #filmmaking #writer #bossbabe #bossbabes #bossbabesatx #girlboss #tinysharkatx #tinysharkshit #thegemmaisabell #lumixg85 #panasonic #femalefilmmakerfriday #femalefilmmakers #atxlife #atx
Not comparing ourselves with those around us has become increasingly more difficult the more accessible we become to each other (and simultaneously further removed, ironically) on social media. This is simply a reminder that if you are constantly comparing your journey to someone else’s, you are being incredibly unfair to yourself and it needs to stop. As another quote I really like says “don’t compare your story to someone else’s highlight reel”. Instead, focus on growing the best possible YOU you can be. Focus on finding areas of yourself you want to improve, learn as much as you can, and set some goals. Next thing you know, you’ll look back and realize how far you have come without realizing it, because you were so damn busy focusing on GROWING and not one-upping Carol from accounting 🤗. I love y’all ♥️.

It’s Saturday night, y’all! Double tap if you’re going out!! What’s everyone up to??? As for me, it’s going to be a long night of editing 🤓, but here’s a picture of a night out I had this one time 😂. Definitely missing Vegas rn, but SO glad to be back and drowning in work. When you absolutely love what you do, staying in to work on Saturday night is a breeze 😍😌🖥🎞🎶. This week has been a little overwhelming because all of my summer projects overlapped in some way, shape, or form, but I am incredibly excited to watch them come to fruition 😍. If you’re staying in to grind out the week with one last night of work before Sunday rest, GO YOU! If you’re going out and taking a well-deserved night off, also go you!!

Just a little light reading before I go into my cave to edit and write forever 🤓. I think this is the hardest part of living in a city with such beautiful outdoors and awesome people; staying inside to be productive can be quite the feat, simply because the summer sun calls to me 😭.

Being organized is key, y’all. I know it’s a little old school but I SWEAR by my planner. Although I do use the calendar on my phone sometimes (specially when it comes to remembering events wayyyy ahead of time!), I have found that a paper planner and the physical action of writing things down gives me mental clarity to be able to focus on the task at hand. Although I have prided myself in being a phenomenal multi-tasker in the past, I know now from experience that I make more mistakes and I don’t do my absolute best if I don’t focus on one thing at a time. By decluttering (we like that word these days, right?) my thoughts of mental to-do lists by putting them on paper, I am able to give my full and undivided attention to any activity or job I have prioritized at the moment. This is how ya girl does all the things 😎. So maybe give a paper planner a try! You never know what might work for you 😊 . . . . . . #work #workflow #organization #protips #thursday #thursdaythoughts #thursdaymotivation #goaldigger #bossbabe #bossbabes #bossbabesatx #ladyboss #atx #atxlife #atxliving #atxlifestyle #atxfilmmaker #videographers #freelance #freelancer #thegemmaisabell #tinysharkatx #tinysharkshit
From “The Miracle Morning” by @hal_elrod Y’all, I’m a perfectionist. Or I used to be. I’m working really hard on giving less fucks while trying way more, and learning WAY more during every attempt. Whatever it is that you do, whether it’s film, photography, fitness, music, writing, or all of the above, don’t spend ALL of your time preparing to try. Just try. And try. And try again. We learn by doing. So go out and DO whatever it is that you do, and THAT’S how you will get better. ♥️ . . . . . . . . . . #tuesdaymotivation #motivation #motivationalquotes #quotestoliveby #quotes #quotesdaily #quotestagram #learning #try #trialanderror #fearless #nofear #inspiration #inspirationalquotes #atx #atxlife #atxlove #atxliving #atxlifestyle #entrepreneur #tinysharkatx #tinysharkshit #thegemmaisabell
Last week, I literally rolled over my face trying to do this. This week, I made the assisted version (next to the wall and with blocks, lol) my bitch 😎. It’s not perfect, I still have a LOT of balance and strength work to do to be able to accomplish this pose, but it feels 100X better/easier than it did last week. Progress is progress! I may not be as good as all the yogi’s I’ve started following lately (I’m looking at you @whenthefullmoon_ , #goals 😍) but that’s because I’M A BEGINNER and the only person I need to be comparing myself with is, well, my yesterday self. A lot of us hate starting new things because we absolutely hate being noobs and not amazing at a certain craft or skill. In reality, we are the only thing standing in the way of our growth. So DON’T BE AFRAID TO BE NEW AT SOMETHING!!! SPECIALLY if it’s a something you’ve been thinking about trying for a long time (like me and yoga). Remember that every master was at one point a beginner himself 🔥❤️🤘🏼 Have a wonderful Tuesday, friends! . . . . . . . . . . #yoga #beginneryoga #progress #chinstand #handstand #inversions #fitness #fitgirls #fitgirlsguide #austinboulderingproject #progressnotperfection #practice #practicemakesperfect #atx #atxlife #atxlifestyle #atxlove #atxliving #thegemmaisabell #tinysharkatx #tinysharkshit
Having enough money in the bank to not even have to think about it is the goal, right? Most of us say “whatever it takes”. But do we mean that? What if it means giving up your emotional well-being? Your mental stability? Your overall health? No excess amount of money in the world is worth actually feeling and being well. Always, always ALWAYS keep that in mind. I’m not saying stop working hard for those financial goals or those #treatyoself shoes, but always put in perspective the true value of your personal well-being vs. material possessions; after all, all that literal shit stays behind anyway. Take good care of yourselves, friends ❤️ Hope everybody has a phenomenal week 🔥🔥🔥 . . . . . . . . . . #wellbeing #health #loveyourself #peace #peaceofmind #priceless #tinybuddha #livewell #bodymindsoul #atx #atxlife #atxliving #atxlifestyle #atxlove #thegemmaisabell #tinysharkatx #tinysharkshit

In all honesty, this week has been rough. I’m not exactly sure why, but I have been EXHAUSTED. Although I have definitely packed my schedule a little more than the usual so I can leave on mini-vacation next week, it’s definitely out of the ordinary kind of tired for me, so I’ve had to take a little more r&r time this week than I am used to. That being said, I constantly feel super guilty about it because there will ALWAYS be something I could be doing. So just as it is for me, this is your friendly reminder to LISTEN TO YOUR BODY. If it tells you you need to rest before your mind does (because that one will too if you push your body hard enough!), do it. Look at your hard work and realize that you DESERVE to rest. And do it guilt-free ❤️ Now someone tell me to listen to my own advice, please 😂 . . . . . . . . . . #r &r #rest #takecareofyourself #selfcare #selflove #rest #listentoyourbody #workhardresthard #workhardplayhard #restandrelax #unplug #goalgetter #goaldigger #goals #bossbabe #bossbabes #bossbabesatx #bosslady #girlboss #thegemmaisabell #tinysharkatx #tinysharkshit #atx #atxlife #atxliving #atxlifestyle
So this morning in my yoga class I relearned a valuable lesson: if you go into something with the mindset that you can’t do it, your body will perform accordingly. That being said, I did roll over my face .02 seconds after this picture was taken and have a bruised nose because of it 😂(see my story!) HOWEVER: I started doing yoga 2 weeks ago, and although it’s not the hardest or most complicated pose in the book, I was sure that if I tried this particular inversion a few times, I would be able to do it because I know my body and its capabilities. And guess what? Even though I fell this particular time, I WAS able to do it and hold it for a solid 5 seconds. I feel like regardless of the situation, whether it be in your professional or even personal life, the attitude and confidence with which you approach ANYTHING will influence the outcome. We’ve all been hurt at some point, physically, mentally, and emotionally. But if you approach situations cringing or overly cautious (NOTE: OVERLY; don’t be foolish either!), you are cheating yourself out of your full potential. Always do YOUR BEST 🔥🤘🏼🎀 Love y’all! 💕 . . . . . . . . . . #fitness #fitspo #fitfam #fitspiration #inspiration #motivation #motivationalquotes #wednesdaywisdom #wednesdaythoughts #yoga #chinstand #inversions #beginneryoga #doyourbest #confidence #confidencequotes #motivationalspeaker #motivation #thegemmaisabell #tinysharkatx #tinysharkshit #austinboulderingproject #atx #atxlife #atxliving
It’s always good to have a friend who will tell you the ugly things you don’t want to hear. Specially when those things get in the way of your growth and productivity. Recently it was brought to my attention by my IRL talking mirror @ginalivorsi that I spend way too much emotional energy on things and people that don’t matter in the grand scheme of things. I did not like hearing this but I knew she was 100% correct. Since then, I have made it a point to think how much someone or something will matter to my life in 5 years... and if the answer is no, there’s my whole answer right there. I’ve found that I am generally happier and have a lot more to give to the things I actually care about. Pick your battles, kids 🤘🏼 . . . . . . . . . . #inspiration #inspirationalquotes #bestfriend #bestfriendgoals #bestfriends #wcw #wednesday #atx #atxlife #atxliving #atxlifestyle #quotes #quotestagram #quotestoliveby #thegemmaisabell #tinysharkatx #tinysharkshit
I know it’s funny saying it on here because it’s Instagram, but it is always imperative that we keep this in mind, SPECIALLY in the age of social media: do not compare your journey to anyone else’s. Fight every single day to be a little better than you were yesterday. Make that a habit, and you’re continuously challenging the only competition that actually matters: yourself. Make sure that before the day is out, you do something that will move you closer to your goals 🔥. Hope everyone has a fantastic Tuesday! 😊 Love y’all 💕 .

“I don’t have the money” “I don’t have the time” “I’m just not ready yet”. ^^^ just a few of my favorite excuses right there! 😂 . When it comes down to it, it’s simple; making excuses will always be infinitely easier than making moves. But if you want something BADLY enough, you will do whatever it takes to get it. You will make the time, you will save the money, and you will take the leap and aim on your way. You will make sacrifices, you will willingly get out of your comfort zone, and you will figure it out. So get out of your own way and MAKE SHIT HAPPEN for yourself because because, guess what? NOBODY is going to do it for you. So if you have a dream, get off your butt, and MAKE. IT. HAPPEN 🔥 Make some moves this week, y’all 🤘🏼 . . . . . . . . #motivation #motivationmonday #motivationalquotes #motivational #inspiration #inspirationalquotes #toughlove #samaltman #excuses #maketimenotexcuses #goaldigger #gogetter #bossbabe #bossbabes #bossbabesatx #ladyboss #girlboss #thegemmaisabell #tinysharkshit #tinysharkatx #entrepreneur #mondaymood #mondayvibes #monday
#nationalselfieday selfie and #throwbackthursday to a seemingly regular gig that ended up changing my life, y’all. Sometimes it just takes one day, one moment, one word to just make everything click. That was that day for me. I’ve been working very hard towards something for a very long time, and it’s been sort of a slow moving mess, in one general direction. At least it’s forward, I would think, and honestly, I don’t think I was wrong. But that day, a clear mf picture just finally happened, and if that isn’t what makes me jump out of bed in the morning, I don’t know what is. Find your passion, y’all. Find your passion and let it kill you. Love y’all ❤️ . . . . . . . . . . #atx #atxlife #atxliving #atxlifestyle #atxlove #atxartist #atxfilm #atxfilmmaker #filmmaker #filmmaking #videographer #cinematographer #producer #artist #workflow #thegrind #bossbabe #bossbabes #bossbabesatx #film #filming #thegemmaisabell #tinysharkatx #tinysharkshit #tbt #thursdaymotivation #thursdaythoughts
Y’all, these past few months (basically since the beginning of 2017) have been no short of life-changing for me. There have been a lot of ups and downs thus far, but the reality of the situation is that the way that the ups have become permanent is because of my attitude towards my life and general situation, and my willingness to make the best out of anything and everything that comes my way. I used to focus on figuring out what it was that brought me down or that made me less productive, and in turn, I would then proceed to overthink about the shortcomings I was constantly shining spotlights on, and freeze then feel worse. A few months back I started making adjustments to my life, not based on what I thought was wrong and I needed to fix, but based on who I want to be as a person. Sure enough, making those changes and building those habits has made the drastic, drastic difference. So don’t strive to tear down what you don’t like; make it your goal to simply build what you want, and everything will fall into place. Love y’all ❤️ . . . . . . . . . . #motivation #motivationalquotes #womancrushwednesday #wcw #wednesdaywisdom #wednesday #wednesdaythoughts #atx #atxlife #atxlifestyle #atxliving #atxlove #thegemmaisabell #tinysharkatx #tinysharkshit
There are lots of things that we can’t control. In fact, most things we can’t control. But we CAN control our attitude towards the things we can’t control. Today, I had to be constantly reminded of this by my best friends, as I spent the entire day worrying about things that I can do nothing about at this point in time. When I have days like this, I like to remember this particular quote that used to be posted up in my ESL 2 class in 6th grade. It never leaves me, because it was one of the first phrases I ever made sense of in English in that classroom after getting some help from my teacher at the time. Who would have thought it would continue to play such a strong part in my ‘adult skills tool belt ‘ some 14 years later? In the end, it turned out to be a pretty fantastic day, but not before I spent a LOT of energy on unnecessary worrying that I could have used more productively. Alas! We live and we learn! Tomorrow will be another fantastic day :). Sweet dreams, everyone ❤️ . . . . . . . . . . #positivity #positivityshot #anxiety #anxietyrelief #anxietyquotes #worrying #dontworrybehappy #strength #strengthquotes #quotesdaily #quotestoliveby #quotesdaily #quote #nightowl #nightstagram #midnightpost #thegemmaisabell #austin #atx #atxlife #atxnightlife #atxlifestyle #atxliving #atxlove #tinysharkatx #tinysharkshit #motivation #tuesdaymorning #tuesdaythoughts
Because of our recent vacation and the fact that I’ve been crazy busy, my dad thought I wasn’t going to make it home for Father’s Day...

For all things, whether it be professional or personal, if it’s not a ‘HELL YES’, then allow yourself to say ‘no, thank you’. There are too many average and mediocre things in this life, y’all. Don’t let your experience be one of them. Spend your time doing things that awaken your soul and grow your mind, and strive to surround yourself with people that do the same, so you can appreciate each other and grow together. Hope everyone has a wonderful Friday 😊🤘🏼🔥🎀 . . . . . . . . . . #fridaymood #fridayfeeling #fridaymood #fridaymotivation #friyay #friyayvibes #tgif #weekendvibes #bossbabe #bossbabeatx #quotes #quotesdaily #dailyquotes #quotestoliveby #passion #passionplanner #quotestagram #goaldigger #thegemmaisabell #tinysharkatx #tinysharkshit
I have not had a #wcw in a while, but today I HAD to call out @carriecates for being such an amazing human and overall inspiration. From the first day of class at ASoF I remember thinking “this teacher is awesome, it’s going to be a great class...” Needless to say, it didn’t take long for her awesomeness as a filmmaker, producer, and artist to shine through as she shared her knowledge with us and we got to see her work. Not two weeks later, my mind had changed to to “HOLY SHIT, SHE’S A BADASS LADYBOSS AND I WANT TO BE LIKE HER🔥🤘🏼🧠💕” This is a picture of her on the set of her short “Harper’s Song”, which you can find on her website (link in her bio!!, I highly recommend you watch it!! 😍) Carrie, thank you for being. Literally just, thank you for being 😭💗🔥 . . . . . . . . . . #bossbabe #ladyboss #femalefilmmaker #femalefilmmakerfriday #femalefilmmakers #filmmaking #filmmakers #filmmakerslife #filmmakersworld #film #atxfilm #atxart #atxlife #atxlifestyle #atxliving #atxlove #bossbabesatx #producer #womancrushwedensday #atx #tinysharkatx #tinysharkshit #mentor
I may not be able to reach the top just yet, but this is my PROGRESS. Y’all, I used to be so results-minded that I drove myself crazy with frustration over the fact that I wasn’t seeing the change I wanted to see as quickly as I wanted it to happen. And I’m not just talking about fitness. Frustration led to anxiety, and the anxiety would make me freeze, or even worse, regress every time I found myself not getting the results I wanted immediately (patience has never been one of my virtues 😬). One day, as a result of some reading I’d been doing recently, it just dawned on me; my focus was not where it needed to be. So instead of focusing on the big change and becoming frustrated, I began focusing on small changes, day after day, one at a time, and forming habits from these small details. Slowly but surely, next thing I know, real, permanent change began happening. . Good habits aren’t created over night, y’all. It takes time, patience, and discipline. Whether it be fitness, personal, or professional, permanent changes take some time to adopt, specially when they are challenging. BUT they are NOT impossible! So be patient with yourself!!! Stay on track, and give your mind and body room to adapt. I BELIEVE IN YOU 🧠 . Hope everyone has a fantastic Tuesday! 🔥😊 . . . . . . . . . . #fitness #fitgirlswag #fitfam #fitspire #fitspo #coreworkout #core #fitgirls #fitgirlsguide #motivationalquotes #motivation #tuesdaymotivation #tuesday #tuesdaymorning #tuesdayvibes #tuesdaythoughts #atx #atxlife #atxlifestyle #atxliving #atxlove #thegemmaisabell #tinysharkatx #tinysharkshit #patience #habits #forminghabits #protip
ON BIG THINKING; Y’all, I know it can be overwhelming to think about the possibilities of following your passion and making it a business. It’s daunting, to say the least, to even begin to think about everything that needs to fall into place to make that big dream a reality. But what we fail to realize a lot of the time is that that big picture (bear with me while I geek out) is composed of thousands of little pixels. Or irl, just little things that need to get done to put together the big picture. We tend to look at the top of the mountain and say ‘man, I want to be up there one day’ but fail to take that first step forward. And you see, that first step is the key. That one little step will make you feel confident about taking the next one. Then the next one. And so on and so forth, until one day you’ll realize, holy shit! I’m on top of the mountain! So make sure you’re breaking down those big goals into pieces that you can carry, and you’ll be surprised how simple it actually is (not easy, don’t get confused!) to accomplish things that once seemed unattainable. Believe in yourself, break it down, and get to work! ❤️ . . . . . . . . #mondayquotes #mondaymotivation #motivationalquotes #motivation #motivationmonday #inspirationalquotes #inspire #goaldigger #gogetter #smallbusiness #smallbusinessowner #lovewhatyoudo #believeinyourself #atxlife #atxliving #atxlifestyle #thegemmaisabell #tinysharkatx #tinysharkshit #mondaymood #quotestoliveby #alvintoffler #bigthinking #entrepreneur
HAPPY MOTHA%*!?\&$N MONDAY, Y’ALL! :D I don’t want to hear any of that #mondayblues bullshit! Mondays are, if anything, just a chance at resetting and starting over with a clear mind, clear goals, and positive freakin’ attitude! Although in the grand scheme of things Mondays are just another day, it really is my absolute favorite day of the week, because I get to set the mood for how the next 6 days are going to go. So go out there and have a KICK ASS Monday. Remember that a goal without a plan is just a day dream. So think big picture (I’ll talk more about big picture thinking later today! Stay tuned!!) set some goals for the week, organize, strategize, and CRUSH THEM 🔥 Love y’all! ❤️😍🎀 . . . . . . . . . . #mondayquotes #mondaymotivation #mondaymood #mondaymood 😎 #motivationmonday #motivationalquotes #motivation #fitness #fitgirls #fitgirlswag #fitgirlsatx #fitfam #fitspire #inspirationalquotes #inspire #fitspo #fitspiration #thegemmaisabell #tinysharkatx #tinysharkshit #lovewhatyoudo #goaldigger #allthewayup
Woke up today thinking of a laundry list of things I need to do, only to realize IT’S SUNDAY!!! :D I still have a list of things to do, but it consists of things like “go get a new book, take a bike ride, maybe go paddle boarding, etc.” (I like making lists, ok?). When one gets to be so goal-oriented at something you absolutely love doing, it’s really easy to forget that r&r are an absolute necessity to make sure you don’t burn out. Even when you love what you do and you could not see yourself doing anything else, burn out is a real thing! I like to take Sundays to recharge emotionally, mentally, and physically so that I can hit it hard all over again all week starting Monday morning. I am particularly excited about today because I get to go buy a new book I’ve been meaning to pick up 😍. Y’all know me and my self-help and business books, lol🔥🤘🏼😎. So take care of yourself! Take some time to rest. Your body/mind/soul will thank you for it later, AND you’ll be more creative/productive when you get back to work! Love y’all! ❤️ . . . . . . . . . . #sundayfunday #sundayvibes #sundayvibe #sunday #restandrelaxation #restandrelax #selfcare #selflove #treatyoself #bodymindsoul #goodvibesonly #rest #relax #unplug #quotes #quotestoliveby #selfcarequotes #atx #atxlife #atxliving #atxlifestyle #atxlove #thegemmaisabell #tinysharkatx #tinysharkshit #inspirationalquotes
