Single friends, I am sure you hate this as much as I do. We all have asked the question, hoping for an original, heart-enlightening response; They respond with, "Well, when you know, you know."
How many times have you scrolled through your feed and glanced through comments of followers begging influencers or public figures for the answers to these questions: How did you get your body? What’s your workout routine? Do you meal prep? Are you vegan/gluten free? If your answer is more times than you can count, then I’m right there with you! Every day I have conversations with individuals and read over hundreds of comments from people looking for ways to get healthy, feel strong, look great and be happy, and the answer is far more simple than anyone may realize.
One of the questions I get asked the most these days is "How do you travel so much?" Social media, in particular, paints a sometimes distorted picture of the reality of travel. It highlights all of the breathtaking views, bright smiles with foreigners and crystal clear ocean lagoons but rarely succeeds in opening up about the "how" to the "what."
"Hey! Oh my gosh, I haven't seen you in so long! How have you been?"
We all have guardrails we depend on in life. Guardrails are meant to keep us on track, they're there to show us the edge of where we weren't meant to go and help bounce us back along our journey when we begin to veer off course. But when we ride the rail, we're left with scratches, scrapes and incredible damage that was never meant to happen if used in the way it was intended. When we abuse something that was meant to help to the point it begins to hurt, it's time for a wake up call. It's time to get back on track.
