I (we) survived because the fire inside of me burned brighter than the fire around me (us). 🔥
To you this might just look like a small group of friends, headed out to eat (delicious) Italian food followed by seeing Beauty & the Beast on the big screen. (Which, you technically wouldn't be wrong about 💁🏼)
But the thing is...we weren't all exactly friends before we started on this mission together. We were friendly and "knew" one another (all from the same small town) but we didn't connect then like we do now.
A mission, like the one we have, can build bonds that last through the toughest times in life. ✨ We all, independently, felt like we wanted our lives to be about more - like we were being called to do more than just show up to a regular 8-5 and just go through the motions. We didn't want to be so limited by physical abilities and financial strains - we wanted freedom that was sort of difficult to define. We wanted to EMPOWER other women by inspiring and leading them to truly love who they are (who God made them to be) and to pass that powerful feeling forward. .
We wanted to create a healthy, positive environment for us and other women to learn and grow in the adventures of healthy living that were WAY beyond what the cover of magazines preach. 👋🏻 We wanted to be surrounded with motivating and inspiring people who always pushed us to grow and bloom - right where we are. 🌱
So, we did. So, we are. So we WILL. 👊🏻💕 Never limit yourself. Find your PEOPLE who are just as wild as you are to run with in this life and never give up on what you heart is calling for you to do. 💓
I focused on my TO DO List and I am pleased with what I have accomplished today. The "stinkin thinkin" that my friend @purplefish227 labeled for me today, left my brain. I got a great 30 minute sweat sesh in with MMA MASH UP. I listened to a webinar AND spent time in my happy place. Now to watch THE VOICE. ✌💜🌼💪
