Although I seem to look less happy from one picture to the next, I can promise you I feel the best right now! In my last post I showed this picture of me after getting out of the hospital. had I gone to the doctor when I first started having problems, I would not have had to take so much time off and end up in such poor shape. If you have a problem, don’t put a blind eye to it. Get to the right professional, figure it out and get the right treatment to get the healing process started!! It was such a relief to get Back to exercise and was so fun getting strength and size back. And now to finally lean up, I get to feel my best! Had I gone to the doctor when I first had problems, I could have had many more years of feeling so much better! I preached about this in a previous post, but I’m feeling pretty strongly about it nowadays. But also, when you do get treatment and perhaps have to start over, it’s not the end of the world. Time keeps going by no matter what, and before you know it, you’re back at your best!! #transformation#trainsmart#trainhard#nevergiveup#healthylifestyle
It’s not a easy thing to talk about but I feel it necessary.
Today, I came across a post about how much financial income this person has earned over the past year. I’ve seen this many times over the years and I can understand the value that it holds. It can help you see the possibilities and the opportunity present. I am happy for that person and their accomplishments. I admire the hard work it took to get there. I, in no way shame anyone for their hard work or for sharing something they have every right to be proud of. I am not that person.
This post is for all of you out there, like myself, who are hustling, tired to the bone at the end of the day and struggling to make ends meet.
This is scary for me to admit but I had to cut my own hair today. This is no big deal and not the end of the world, I KNOW! The world has much bigger issues than this, I am very aware. The truth is, I couldn’t afford to get it cut.
I am in survival mode most days. Everything is calculated and fit into a budget because there is no room for fault or error. I’m not telling you all of this for pity or like, poor me! I appreciate my hardships for what they are and wear them like a metal of honor. This is one of the best and most valuable life lessons I could ever experience. I know this because once I’ve made it, I will never forget what it was like to walk down that dark alley way and come out the other side.
I want to be real and say HEY! I’m over here struggling too. It’s not my first rodeo and it sucks but if you are like me, we are in it together. You got this and tomorrow is a new day!
Some days you work your ass off and you feel like you get no where. And even though I’m not making $$$,$$$,$$$ (YET!) I will never lose hope and never give up on the possibilities. I have all the control, power to turn it all around. So I’m gonna keep sweating it, hustling hard and determined to never give up even though it sometimes seems or feels like everyone around you is succeeding and you are not. Keep your head high and keep pushing and I know good things will happen for you and me.
