Creativity has been in short supply, for poetry, as of late. But this idea has been on my mind. The itch to get on a peak has me reflecting on things my dad would say during our hikes. That I am seeing things most people never get to see. I am standing where most people get to stand. I learned to appreciate how small I was amongst piles of granite.
A new poem is in the works. Hopefully it comes together soon.
Much love to you all
What we do is simple - NOT easy.
We get criticized, ignored, bashed, pointed at, judged, people gossip, people are jealous, people are mean.
What we do is help people -
We help people feel better, we help people gain energy, we help people gain lean muscle, we help people lose weight, we help people feel like they are 20 again.
We help people eat healthy for a discount, we help people eat healthy for free, we help people earn a few extra bucks for their bills, we help people live financially free.
We do it day in and day out, we never quit, no matter what people think. There are more cards stacked against us than there are in our favor.
Still, we keep going. WHY?
Because, it may not be easy but it’s simple and worth it.
Help people - they feel good, you feel good - SIMPLE.

Life has some heavy moments.

Hi 👋🏼 I’m back! It’s all about perspective. I did a 10+ day social media fast #generalconference And boy did that feel good. At first it was rough and I would keep finding my thumb leading me here but after a couple days it was liberating. Yesterday was my first day back and it’s nice to see friends and family but I think it has helped me realize some things i don’t need in my life. Maybe things I can unfollow and just don’t need in my life.
Surround yourself with positive people. Surround yourself with good music. Surround yourself with good books. Surround yourself with good things that uplift your thoughts. Surround yourself with people who make you want to be better. Take care of yourself and those around you. We need each other.
Facts. When someone is rude to you don’t take it personally. Take a step back and see what’s really going on.
Where would I be today if I hadn’t made the decision to be better, feel better, eat better, and LIVE better??
I’m almost positive I’d still be the shy girl who always avoided social interactions, had low self esteem, and always felt defeated by looking in the mirror.
Not NO MORE! Fitness and nutrition has given me the strength to look in the mirror and be proud of the body I challenge to be better everyday. No, I don’t have solid abs! And of course I still have goals to continue changing and growing.
What I do have is my positive mental health, my confidence to know I deserve to be happy everyday, and the drive to keep pushing me forward!
I’ve had several excited people ask about my fitness programs and nutritional guides... but then never make the commitment to actually make changes happen.
I didn’t get here by just asking questions or thinking about the healthy lifestyle I wanted. I had to TAKE ACTION and actually WORK FOR IT!
Fitness and nutrition does not have to control your life in order for you to live healthy. Once you start a routine it all becomes a wonderful habit that you automatically WANT to be a part of your life.
My teams Health for the Holidays challenge starts next Monday! We have the workout programs and nutrition guides you need to start this holiday season having a healthy relationship with food and a boost of energy from your workouts. Comment below or shoot me a message if you’re serious about TAKING ACTION while still living a balanced life!
#poem 597 - such a show off
Life is hard and social media can be hard. So here’s a reminder that you are incredible, you are worthy, you are enough, and you truly do have the power to create anything you want❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
So I did something silly today! I walked Smoogie girl wearing this hat! 🦄
Because why not?! 😂
Okay, actually, I had reasons...
🦄 I’m super aware if you want to change the world, you can’t be worried about what other people think. And... I worry waaaay too much about this. 🙈 So what a better way to deal with it than walk around with a unicorn hat on! 😂
🦄 Besides... who couldn’t use a bit of silliness in their day?!?? We can tend to take life waaaay too seriously. (At least I do anyway)
So this was my challenge for Day 14 of @unicornmagiccoffee’s 30 Day Positivity Challenge: Do something silly!
The biggest surprise?
As I approached the first person, I was wondering, ‘what are they going to think?’ ‘Will they laugh?’ ‘Will they think I’m strange?’ ‘Will they give me a funny look?’
They didn’t even notice!!
They were too busy staring at their phone as they passed me. They didn’t even see me! 🤣
I’d heard it before... people aren’t thinking about you. Because they’re too busy thinking about themselves.
I just saw it in action!
And I was wearing a flippin’ unicorn hat too! (Seriously, they hardly even noticed I existed)
So what in the world are you and I worried about? Most people aren’t even noticing anyway! 😜
Oh, and bonus... I didn’t die! 😂 I’m sure that doesn’t come as a big surprise to you. But I walked around the neighborhood for 25 minutes with this silly hat on. And I didn’t die! 😜
Mmmmm... I wonder what else you and I could do? 🤓
Love you! 💙
PS. Confession... this didn’t stop me from spending waaaay too long picking out the ‘right’ photo for this post. I’m still a work in progress apparently! 😂 Maybe I need more ‘silly’ days like today. 😜

Know your worth.
If you don't know with certainty that you are deserving and worthy, who will?
The human mind may think, mistakenly, that it is pious or proper to overplay humility.
To cut oneself down.
To avoid shining too brightly.
To play at being small, while a glorious giant sleeps within.
True love and authenticity are not of the faint-hearted or the weak. They are born of strength, power, and understanding. "Humanity" is not synonymous with "flawed." Humility is not synonymous with self-deprecation.
Meekness is not synonymous with righteousness.
You were born for greatness.
You are fashioned out of star stuff and molded with the joyful tears of your ancestors.
Your blood, your bones, your heartbeat know the way.
Set aside your fumbled attempts at timidity.
You're not fooling anyone.
We can all see your radiance, bursting at the seams.
We're waiting with baited breath to see you truly shine. -e
