WHAT? a fitness professional that DISLIKES competition? yup, you heard it. i don't say hate to many things..but honestly, I HATE IT. what i hate even MORE is when i see people promote "community over competition" and yet they treat others in a way that does not back that statement up whatsoever. i completely understand that we all mess up from time to time. we say things out of frustration, stress, etc..but when you are constantly trying to step on someone else to better yourself..you need to take a step back and CHECK YO SELF.
it's been a rough season...one that is pretty difficult to explain unless you are directly involved. i find that these types of seasons are the hardest because it really feels like it is just me, myself + i..but it's also a reminder that i am never alone. i always have God with me! i absolutely and truly LOVE what i do..but in the past month or so, i have had many moments where i have questioned myself on the daily. i've had moments where i just need to take a second. breathe. and pray. i have had several moments at night after a long day where i just need to blast worship music and cry out to the lord. this may make me sound crazy, but it's the truth. HOWEVER, i am faithful and have full hope that God is using this current season in my life for something amazing. so rather than let it all get to me, i'm staying strong. i'm pushing through. i am truly blessed to have close friends and loved ones that share similar values, beliefs and are just all around DRAMA-FREE. always SUCH a breathe of fresh air.
all in all, i have to remember that despite the actions of others, i am a WOMAN OF GOD. i will not allow drama and negativity into my life. also---in no way shape or form will i partake in any gossip about my friends or loved ones.
A WOMAN OF GOD. CLOTHED IN STRENGTH + DIGNITY. SHE IS A WOMAN OF GRACE. A WOMAN OF KINDNESS. SHE THINKS BEFORE SHE SPEAKS. SHE WALKS WITH INTEGRITY. SHE IS BOLD. SHE IS COURAGEOUS. SHE WALKS IN LOVE.
sorry for the soap box!
