The Most Powerful Woman You’ve Never Met… YOU!
There are times in life when we feel like we’ve lost our voice, maybe even ourselves. We lose that sense of control… or maybe never felt it in the first place. Over the years, working out has given me that power. I am more confident in myself and am better for adopting a healthy lifestyle. I know what it’s like to start at the bottom and work your way up. I was beaten down, and exercise gave me my confidence back. It built up my self-esteem when I had lost it. Most importantly, working out gave me the nerve to leave an abusive relationship. I realized I could make it on my own if I put my mind to it, and I have never looked back.
Now, my whole life has turned around, and I am married to the love of my life! He is a true partner… someone who lifts me up and supports me. Make sure you are spending time with the kind of people who will pick you up when you need it! Life isn’t always going to be easy, but it’s always possible… and so much better with people who care about you and get you through the rough patches. YOU are worth the hard work! Know your self-worth and do not give your power away. Surround yourself with positivity and gratitude because it breeds more positivity. What you put in is what you get out! If you are constantly telling yourself you aren’t good enough, you will never believe you are… and that’s NOT TRUE! Find people who can be a support system… people who tell you the truth and help you when it’s hard! And when it comes to romance, find a man who ruins your lipstick and NOT your mascara! There's a great song about that and I think it’s the perfect phrase to remember! There is no use spending time with people who tear you down. Don’t waste the energy!
Life can get crazy, y’all!! I know we’ve all been there. But why are we so quick to forget how much we have to offer? That we are a force to be reckoned with?? Life has a way of beating us down sometimes, but there is always a way to get back up. I believe that whatever way you choose to rise above, working out is a key factor—I know it was for me! I always feel a sense of accomplishment after a good sweat. I know I have done something that is good for me, and it builds me up when I’m feeling down… the perfect confidence boost! There’s something about leaving a good workout that reminds you how capable you are. We all need something like that in our lives! Ladies, YOU ARE POWERFUL. We can’t see it all the time, but I am here to tell you that it’s true!! Don’t forget who you are and how great life can be when we decide to make those powerful, bold choices!!
You can overcome whatever you set your mind to. You can take it to the next level. You ARE capable! We have to stick together and root for each other when the path gets tough!! Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t achieve a goal you’ve set for yourself! Keep pushing through and use the power of what you have already overcome to get you to the next step! Find your people, set your goal, and get out there. You will be better and stronger for it!
When you need that extra boost, don’t hesitate to reach out… we are all fighting together! Find your power and use it, ladies. Love y’all!
Until next time, xoxo!
