There was a time that if you told me
the only way to succeed is to fail
I would respond
Guess I won’t succeed.
And if you told me
I was better off giving up meat, dairy, and chips I would be healthier
I would say
Then I guess I’ll be sick
But there was also a time that if you told me I would be having children, getting married and going to bed at 11pm happily I would have said
YOU ARE OUT OF YOUR MIND!!!
Things change, you change and as we evolve what we thought was what we wanted is no longer valid. I remember sitting with my BF, Valeria, crying telling her that my life was over because my boyfriend was leaving me. Life was done. I didn’t want to take another breathe. A few weeks later we were at the clubs dancing our butts off
Boyfriend? what boyfriend?
That’s how life works. What you believe is real in this moment will likely not be so the next one. And I learned it the hard way. It’s one of those stories that you tell in hindsight to inspire. You see Joulebody Cleanse, my company, the one I built from the ground up with passion, dreams and the very strong intention that it would succeed and make my family rich closed in 2015. Not because it failed but because my anxiety & stress levels were so heightened that my family and my wellbeing was compromised. I had to close. My best friend from high school was dyeing and with her was the idea that we could do and be whatever we wanted. I mean I do believe that we can be and do what we want however, I learned that it comes with hard work and some of the work we may not be ready to do so our dreams, our aspirations they just don’t happen.
When I decided to go into fitness it was because I wanted to help heal my son. It then evolved to me reaching fitness goals and leading into helping clients get skinny with an easy healthy method. And next thing I knew there was no turning back. I mean I was no way ever able to eat meat like I did before, I definitely did not go a day without eating a great amount of fruits and lot’s of veggies. But most of all I didn’t accept this moment was going to decide what my next moment would be like. Instead I realized this moment was a tool. Something that I would use to help create a greater, happier new moment or notice if I needed to shift because I was getting caught up in an old thought or trying to control my future.
Once upon a time we believed…
what we ate did not affect how we behaved.
how we felt did not affect how we looked
our reaction, good, bad, or indifferent were necessary
we are who we are and that’s the way it is
life is stressful and that’s just what we have to deal with
Now we know better….learn secret rituals for healthier foods & better moods…
