“Start giving your ideas and dreams a chance. – In life, it’s rarely about getting a chance; it’s about taking a chance. You’ll never be 100% sure it will work, but you can always be 100% sure doing nothing won’t work. Most of the time you just have to go for it! And no matter how it turns out, it always ends up just the way it should be. Either you succeed or you learn something. Win-Win.”
I think I need to stop saying this is another favorite because so far each and every point of recent has been a favorite including this one (the complete list is shared point/day on my FB bicepmom page).
The Nike slogan “just do it” perfectly sums-up this one! Parting after 18 years of marriage was to give my ideas and dreams a chance. A recent quote I read seems so relevant here: “saying you have no option is relieving yourself of all responsibility”. I could have continued to believe and say I had no option but I did and it was one that required taking a chance: staying was certainty.
Yes I am a Mom and with that comes an enormous amount of responsibility and yes, I was a wife, with a partner who was my best friend who supported, encouraged and shared some of the most intimate moments and life’s joys at one point in time but, along the way of living life, things happen and change. I respect the father of my children and what we had but it no longer nourished and nurtured the me I am today.
Visualizing dreams is the first step and in between that and making them happen is daily life with intent: it’s like a stage backdrop that sets the tone and determines the actors’ words and actions. One of my dreams is to present my journey to women who are at a crossroads in life with an accompanying rapper ((yes, I have someone in particular in mind) while I peel away the layers of clothing that represent the should’s of Moms to share what I am today physically which is the result of a series of choices and is now my lifestyle. Fitness is the physical manifestation of my journey of creating and defining the me of today.
Six years ago this November, I took my first step into fitness and about 3 years ago I created this blog that started with a few entries and lay dormant until about 6 months ago. What has materialized since then with the blog is beyond what I had ever imagined or planned but is one of the driving forces behind living my dreams. BELIEVE because it’s your belief that will fuel your strength to start creating quantifiable changes in your life. The best part of living your passion and truth is that you start living the life of your dreams :). BELIEVE because it’s happening right now and right here :)!!
