Not my usual way of describing a Saturday that is for sure (especially because I am normally working). But this Saturday wasn’t like most. This Saturday I was surrounded by a group of amazing people who were all passionate about helping others reach for their goals and living the healthiest happiest life they possibly could!
What could be better than this?
Not much let me tell you!
I knew about this event a while before I committed to going. Why? Because I had to make sacrifices to go, I had to take the day off work, which meant giving up a busy waitressing shift and loosing out on money. I also had to give up some sleep to get up early and get to the event. Ill be honest this wasn’t easy to do! January is the slowest month for waitressing so its a really big sacrifice to give up a good shift. But I worked really hard in December and I knew that going to this event would help propel my business and my personal journey in the new year so I finally bit the bullet and made the decision to go!
And boy was it worth it!
Not only did I get to meet new people
I gained some amazing perspective and therefore goals for the new year.
I have decided that this year will be my strongest year yet! I will not only be stronger physically, but mentally, emotionally and financially!! I know that wont be easy and it will take a lot of hard work, but I know its possible!
Some takeaways that I learned on this amazing Saturday are:
Never stop running toward your dreams!
Take control of your life and your destiny! No one else will change your life except you. So stop blaming other people, other situations, or your circumstances and take control of your life and start making the changes and decisions that will help you reach your goals.
Ask the universe for what you want! How you think affects what you say and do. So think positively and look for the positive in life, and you will start to see more positive things. We all have an internal voice that will govern what we think or say or do. What is yours telling you? Check that voice, don’t let it tell you that you can’t do things, because it will convince you that you can’t if you let it.
Sometimes all you need is 20 seconds on insane courage.
Courage is simply the willingness to be afraid and act anyways
You cant give a shit about what other people thing
We also got to eat some yummy energy balls before our group exercise, they were the perfect pick me up, since I forgot a snack and the event went late.
1 cup oatmeal or steel cut oats
1/2 cup all natural peanut butter 1/3 cup raw honey 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes 1/2 cup ground flaxseed 1 scoop Shakeology – any flavor 1 tsp natural vanilla
Mix all together and form into balls. Wrap with wax paper and store in freezer.
Note : you can also throw in 1/2 cup mixed nuts for some added crunch. If you choice to do this, you might need a splash of water.
We all have two dates in common
Start date – End date
What will you do with your dash?
