For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again. — F. Scott Fitzgerald
Happy (almost) New Year! I have never been one to set goals or make “resolutions” for the new year, or at any point at all, until now. 2012 taught me the importance of goals and I have seen so many great results!! I think what held me back before was fear of failure. I mentioned before that letting go of fears was one life-changing thing that I did this year. I cannot stress it enough… It has rocked my world. The less room that fear takes up in your life, the more room for pure joy and excitement.
Now that I set goals in my life, all those things I wished would happen for years, are actually happening. Challenge yourself! I was never competitive with myself until this year. Now I know what a strength it is!!
I have goals in all areas of my life for 2013. I encourage you to make some of your own. I am working on generosity. It is something I have struggled with in many areas. I also have big and small fitness goals.. from increasing muscle endurance for pushups (they’re not easy for me!) to lowering my body fat by another 5-7%. I am constantly learning to embrace who God made me to be rather than to try to be anyone else! This media filled, superficially focused world is tough. I have a passion for ALL things beautiful… not only the breath-taking things God made, but also fashion & trends & all things expensive! I am working on self control and moderation 🙂 God wants us to have all kinds of blessings in our life, but we must also reflect wisdom with what we are given!
I am also buckling down for the next 2 months to finish up my studies and get my PT certification and nutrition specialization. I am so excited for this part of my life and can’t wait to share more of the journey in hopes that it will inspire you!
I am never good at keeping up with blogs often.. but mainly because I only write when I am really inspired to. So bear with me on that! May you all grasp on to the strength to become who you always desired to be. Happy 2013!! Let’s kill it!
