This is one of my #fitnessgoals ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'd love to be able to take some videos at the gym to share what I've learned ans how I do things, just always feel too self conscious cause I'm not in good enough shape yet
Stop waiting for a guarantee "I met a woman recently who wanted to start writing a book but was having trouble believing that the universe would actually give her the result that she wanted – a publishing deal. It might not, I said to her.
There is no certainty.
You do not know where the adventure is going to take you. If you want to know how the adventure ends, you’re never going to start it. ‘But what if I go on an adventure and find nothing?’ people ask. Show me when that ever happens.
Please bring me the person who went on a sincere and open-hearted search and found nothing out about themselves.
You may not find what you wanted to find – however, you will definitely know a great deal more about yourself at the end of the journey than at the beginning. Don’t avoid going on that journey because you might be disappointed. Who among us has been spared disappointed or frustration? It’s part of the journey." @elizabeth_gilbert_writer @psychologiesmagazine 🙌🏽 What have you been waiting to find certainty for?
🌸WARNING🌸 Long post 🤣 ••••• I've lost count the number of times I've been asked whether there are any jobs in sport psychology; why I'm willing to spend so much time & money investing into an area that may not even guarantee a full-time job at the end of it; why I'm 28 years old, single, have no children & why I'm not even in full-time employment yet. Trust me, it hurts... but I'm not you. I don't have the same upbringing or history as you. I don't have the same career ambitions as you. ••••• I've had to face & overcome so many HUGE challenges in my life which some people also believed I'd never survive. I've battled severe eating disorders & complex PTSD from the age of 15. I've lost many friends in the process, but fortunately not all. My academics suffered; I managed to achieve decent A-level grades but I subsequently dropped out of university not once, but twice. I continue to battle the physical & psychological consequences of the illnesses & the years of trauma that came with them. ••••• It's only been in the last 3-4 years I've managed to live some sort of life again. I went back to university, finished my degree & went on to complete a Master's in Psychology. Currently, I'm coming up to the end of my 2nd Master's in Sport & Exercise Psychology. I've also managed to maintain a healthy weight by training hard & competing at International level in Powerlifting, even breaking a British Record & winning a European title in the process. In October, I officially start the last step towards becoming a HCPC-registered Sport & Exercise Psychologist by starting BPS Stage 2. ••••• So no, I may not have a full-time job yet, a boyfriend, children or even my own house, but I've achieved so much that has far more significance to me. The rest will sort itself out because I won't be easing up on my work ethic or drive to achieve what I want by letting other people & their comments make me feel guilty about my life choices. 😘😘😘 #rant#sportpsychology#life#motivation#haters#instatruth#instagood#sorrynotsorry#lifeofloulou#welcome#lifelessons#resilience#success#journey#adversity#mentalhealth#recovery#instafit#igfit#fitfam#girlswholift
