Today i faced a new struggle while traveling but i was reminded of an important lesson because of it and it’s one that i feel is so easy to forget😪
Today as i walked down the aisle to my seat on the plane, i reached my seat and tried to lift my carry on bag up to the overhead compartment.
I couldn’t lift it.
It hurt me, physically and mentally.
Like damn i can’t even complete an activity that is easy for so many other people.
But then i thought to myself, fuck that. I’m in the healing process, and I’m injured.
Even though it’s not visible from the outside, doesn’t mean it’s not there.
So i turned around to the man sitting behind me and asked for his help.
He gladly jumped up and lifted my bag to the overhead compartment.
And just like that i was reminded that it’s okay to ask for help. It’s ok to not be where you want to be yet. It does not diminish your worth or make you any less of a person. If someone else can offer help and make whatever process/journey your going through that much easier, it’s silly not to ask! There are so many people out there willing to offer their support and guidance so take them up on it, you’ll surely get ahead of the game a lot faster learning from their mistakes instead of making the same ones yourself. ❤️
Side note 📝 pretty freaking grateful that i got to do yoga in the sunshine today 🙌🏻😭☀️
Grateful for this guy, today and everyday, for always reminding me to take a step back from the stress and look at everything I’ve accomplished so far instead of focusing on everything i have yet to do ❤️
In the wise words of my dad, “Get started, focus, and you’ll get it done. You can do this!” 👏🏼
Oh and btw i get to hug both my parents in the same week... can you tell how happy i am from my smile 🙈 can’t wait to squeeze you momma 😭❤️ 1 day, 17 hours 🙌🏻 @kfenton66
Great noon workout today. Using the bands is definitely a fun way for me to add resistance. Worked on the core with weights and learning new moves. Enjoyed it a lot, so much that the time seemed way too quickly.
Day 3 of the 7 day black and white picture challenge. I have been challenged by @sherryannsprock now I challenge @perlitadaubert. 7 days 7 b&w pictures no explanation needed wanna play? #curacao#cloudydayfun#beachgirlforlife
Just a reminder that all of your obstacles are detours in the right direction 💕
Keep your head up, move forward, and never forget your worth ✨
I’ve caught myself a few times getting frustrated that I’m not making faster progress with my back but then i think to myself...
Am i really doing all that i can to improve?
Could i do more?
Could i stretch more?
Could i read more on how to strengthen my mindset? ...
And that self evaluation is truly a big step for me! I use to just get frustrated and stay in that negative mindset and not take any action to make the situation better. Now i ask myself those simple questions and 100% of the time there is something i can take more action on to better myself 👊🏼💪🏼
Moral of the story, if you’re frustrated with your current situation, stop for a minute, reevaluate the situation, ask yourself if you’re really doing anything to help the situation or if you’re just drowning in the negativity, then take ACTION👏🏼 Baby steps are still steps no matter how small ✌🏼
When you get 8 hours of sleep for the first time in weeks and wake up feeling like a new magical human being with super powers 🙄🙈😂💪🏼 .
Time to down this preworkout and crush the day 👊🏼even though it’s absolutely freeeezing outside 😭❄️
Happy Saturday 😘
collecting rocks and shells at the beach for our aquarium 🌊🌊🌊⛴🛥⛵ and the sounds of the wave is beautiful 😊 #beachbums 😊 #beachgirlforlife#q8beach#q8life @tonyfish6379 I wish the weather stays like this all the time 😊
I promise this post is said with all the love in my heart 😘💖
I hear all the time “i have no motivation” “i wish i had as much motivations as you”
🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️ Sorry but i call BS... seriously, i don’t have motivation either guys, I’m HUMAN! As much as i wish magical motivation fairies🧚♀️ could sprinkle us all with motivation dust, they don’t exist🙅🏻♀️
I pretty much wanted to do anything but workout tonight. I had a killer headache and was absolutely exhausted so ya i had “no motivation” but what i do have is...
Love for my body 💕
Dedication to my goals💪🏼
Gratefulness that I am healthy enough to be able to get up and move my body🙌🏻
Wanna know why? Because not everyone has that blessing. 😪
I’ve been in those shoes and let me tell you it’s freaking sucks... a lot!😭
And tbh it still does because I’m extremely limited in what i can do with my back but I’ll take what i can get and i will never take my body for granted again!🙅🏻♀️🙅🏻♀️🙅🏻♀️
Your body is a temple that works 24/7 to keep you alive and thriving and it never asks for anything in return because it loves you unconditionally. It’s time you start loving it back ❤️
Sorry for the tough love but i hope this serves as a reminder that you should treat, love, and respect your body the way it deserves to be treated, loved, and respected because it’s the only one you’ve got! No second chances 💕
Not gonna lie the first words out of my mouth this morning were “Oh F*** no!” 🙄🙈 butttt then i remembered that I’ll be in sunny New Mexico ☀️ in a week 😍🙌🏻 sooo sorry New York I’m gonna go ahead and ✌🏼out of this cold ❄️ weather for a bit 😅
For real though, this morning was definitely a reminder of why i set huge hairy scary goals for myself to create a life of freedom to move to the beach ASAP 🌊☀️ .
The only way to get what you want in life is to get extremely comfortable feeling uncomfortable. For it’s the times when you feel uncomfortable that you grow and learn the most about yourself. No one ever achieved their dreams by letting their fears confine them to their comfort zone so jump the fuck out of that bubble and embrace the awkwardness of feeling uncomfortable! 👊🏼✌🏼You’ll be amazed at the flowers that await you 🌷
Thanks for the reminder momma 💕📝
Who said every day can’t be Hump Day 🤷🏻♀️🍑😘
Little progress update... Yesterday was the first day in weeks i didn’t take any pain medication to get through the day! 😭🙌🏻 I stayed moving all day, did 40 minutes on the eliptical, and felt the best i have in a while.... then night time hit, and the pain hit again 😪
I stretched it out as best i could and went to sleep😴 I️ woke up this morning and felt pretty good but the pain has slowly increased throughout the day😕 I’m now trying to finish up some homework but tbh it’s pretty hard to focus when you’re in pain, so I’m just doing the best i can to get my work done and get a good nights sleep! 🙏🏻
Even though I’m not feeling too hot tonight I KNOW that this is all apart of the journey and there is going to be lots of ups and downs, some days where I’m feeling very good, and others where all i want to do is lay in bed 😪 I’m fighting through it though and staying positive! Tomorrow is a new day and i intend to wake up and remind myself that I AM getting stronger every day, even with the little set backs, I’m progressing forward and doing all that is in my power to be better than the day before 💪🏼
Competing only with the girl in the mirror 👏🏼💕
“The best thing you could do is master the chaos in you. You are not thrown into the fire, you ARE the fire!”
Embracing my crazy hair and messy life to its fullest today ❤️ .
Got my workout in this morning and had a productive physical therapy appointment. I’m making small steps forward and getting stronger everyday. I’m a long way from being completely healed but I’m slowly but surely getting there. Definitely working overtime to make sure my mindset is in the right place to support my body’s healing 😌 not always easy but I’m learning to love the girl in the mirror along every step of this journey 💕
I️ am beautiful.
I am strong.
I am capable.
Also just a reminder...
YOU are too ❤️
