Top 10 ways I changed my life.
1. Got sober. Sobriety is a gift, regardless if it's a choice you make to be healthier, more present, awake. Or if it was forced on you because you couldn't put down the bottle, the pill, or the pipe. Either way, it's the best thing that could happen to you in terms of changing your life. The more work you do to grow & evolve and find your purpose, calling - the better you feel.
2. Moved My Body
I lift weights and I love it and I am growing a big butt which I love and I cannot lie.
3. Read Books
4. Listened to (Educational, Resourceful, Spiritual, etc) Podcasts
5. Wrote. Told the Truth.
Released my story and my truth and I speak my truth and I continue to do so everyday.
6. Set boundaries and said No.
7. Removed toxic people from my life
8. Found a love that is full of integrity & goodness by being willing to understand what I deserve and also being willing to be the person someone else deserves too.
9. Built a relationship with God & continue to do so daily.
10. I started to love myself, fiercely, and without regard.

"According to my experience, it is clear that if each individual makes an effort then he or she can change. Of course, change is not immediate and it takes a lot of time. In order to change and deal with emotions, it is crucial to analyze which thoughts are useful, constructive and of benefit to us. I mean mainly those thoughts which make us calmer, more relaxed and which give us peace of mind, versus those thoughts which create uneasiness, fear and frustration." - The Dalai Lama #wisewords#wordstoliveby
"A strong woman accepts both compliments & criticism. Graciously knowing that it takes both sun and rain for a flower to grow" ☀️🌧🌸💗 .
Everybody's body respondes differently to specific amounts of macro nutrients, style/ duration of training, and recovery. Trial and error has been my biggest teacher throughout the years of my fitness career. I know what works best for me to progress and what definitely hinders me from moving forward. But it wasn't always that easy for me..
Most people expect a quick fix, immediate results, instant muscle growth or fat loss (whatever your goal may be). And then, we hit a plateau. I've learned that just because I'm #passionate about fitness doesn't mean I have all the answers. It's ok to seek help from others and receive feedback. I think "criticism" tends to have a negative connotation, but it's actually your attitude towards receiving it that can make you or break you. Criticism can be constructive and the one tweak we needed to fix our progression. I used to be too prideful to ask for help, guidance or advice. But the truth of the matter is, my stubbornness got me nowhere. I haven't come this far on my fitness journey alone; many inspirational people have influenced me tremendously! .
So here's some advice and you can take it or leave it: •Don't let your ego get in the way •Take criticism as a positive tool to allow growth •Don't be afraid to explore what works best for you because at the end of the day, you are the most valuable possession to cherish, love and water.
