Nothing is ever permanent and change is inevitable. What I mean by this is that as individuals we are always changing, always learning, always growing. Everything in our lives is pretty much temporary such as our friendships, pets, bodies, ect. What we have now is not what we are going to have 5 years down the road, things happen in our lives that we have no control over, like ageing or the loss of family and friends. I do not wish to look like or be the same person that I am now forever, I want to learn, grow, and become more than I am now. I have accepted change in a way that I am able to have things in my life but not be attached to them so when they leave or I no longer have them, I will be okay. I'm not saying that it doesn't hurt to lose the people or current things that I have in my life but I am saying that I am capable of being able to move on but still have appreciated the time I had spent doing things or being with different people. I take what I have learned from my different experiences with different people to become more outgoing and compatible with others. Accept change and use it to grow and become better. Don't allow temporary things hold you back, they won't be there forever.
If you are passionate about something, you will succeed. If you doubt yourself, you will fail.
I've had a vision for myself for several years now. Almost 4 years now, to be exact! Quick recap of my fitness life for any just joining: I retired from swimming and gained a lot of weight, decided I wanted a change, so I did it! I competed in my first show in May of 2015 and rebounded badly. Competed again in back-to-back shows in 2016. I'll have taken about 2 years off when I compete in 2018, but have spent this time learning everything I can about supplementation (thanks to my @performixdriven crew!), everything I can about my body and finally my mind! (Your mind is a muscle that also needs to be trained!)
This is my unique journey in a nutshell. You have your unique journey too! And know that it's incredible, beautiful and YOURS to do with it what you want. Don't give up on yourself. Don't quit. Quitting is too easy anyway... 😘
🏆• WINNING WEDNESDAY •🏆
It's officially official!
Through the moments of defeat, the trails, the tribulations, the doubts... IT WAS ALL WORTH IT! Never give up on your dreams! ♥️
I dont care about anyones opinion. What you think of me does not define who I am. I try my best to be the best version of myself.
If you gain some haters along the way that means you're doing something they could never stomach.
I believe I am my own greatest asset, my own greatest enemy. I will never back down, nor will I give up.
