Lately, I’ve been feeling overwhelmed and stressed at times, and it’s been a challenge to balance everything, but here’s the thing: it’s perfectly normal.

I’ve come to understand that these moments of chaos and stress. They’re not setbacks: they’re opportunities. They’re chances for us to test our limits, to discover what we are truly capable of.

I know this is a sign that I’m not settling for mediocrity, and I’m chasing excellence.

I’m grateful for the life I’m living and excited about the journey I’m on- I’ve just got a lot going on. I’m learning to take one day at a time and be as present as possible.

I’m more disciplined than I’ve ever been and I never worry about whether or no t I’m “motivated” because that shit is not something you should depend on.

If someone were to tell me to “live a little” I’ll let them know that I’m living A LOT.

Sometimes we need something blunt and honest…

There will always be people who push back and love blunt messages.

Everything needs to be flowers and sunshine neatly packaged. But that doesn’t always deal with the inconvenient truth.

There is a big difference between how we feel and our lifestyle behaviors. There’s a massive relationship between our lifestyle behaviors and the likelihood of long -term positive or negative outcomes. The prevention and healing of the damage starts with choices today. And Sugar coating and messaging all the time is doing a substantial disservice.

If you’re still someone who thinks eating healthy and working out must feel miserable, take a hard look at the misery created by years of poor lifestyle choices.

Which misery would you choose for yourself?

Build a life that matters.

    Way to positively reinforce yourself and others. Life is a difficult journey, find your path and fight with all your might. There will be setbacks, heartaches and so much more. Yet we never give up. March onwards.

  • I always prefer the brutal trurh over a sugar coated lie. What you've said here is very profound and thought provoking!
