The people I have met on my journey to a healthier me has been one of the biggest blessings I could have ever asked for! My Foxy Ladies that I met on BLC and still talk to some daily, the friends I made in the few short months that I was on Jillian Michael’s site and still talk to at least once a week, the great people that I met in the run club, the wonderful Fitness Family I have become a part of at Legacy Martial Arts and the whole martial arts world through KickPics, fabulously fun Zumba Friends, the people I am meeting and even old friends I am getting reacquainted with through my Body By Brenda blog, Facebook page, Twitter, and other social media, and now my new Beachbody Family! ALL of them are special to me and have such a special place in my heart. Each of them brought me a little further out of my shell, and have helped me grow in ways I never thought were possible for me.
I am now on the edge of a cliff. The hang glider is attached to my back, and I am ready for the ride of my life. I just have to get the gumption up to JUMP! Have faith in myself and faith in God that I have the courage and self-confidence to be the inspiration, the helping hand, the motivator, the coach, the friend, the whatever it is that I need to be to help the most people in this world find their way to health and fitness. It is a passion that grows inside me more each day.
I have gotten so many sincere, heart-felt encouraging words from so many people the last few months, as I struggle to get past this injury-fest that my body seems to be on. My confidence is building even as I struggle. I am working to be the best I can be! I have been “on track” for 3 days now, and I am feeling AWESOME! Not that the pain is all gone, but in my heart, I feel that my goals are NOT out of reach, in fact, they are MY PURPOSE!
So today is a beautiful, sunny, HOT day here in the Midwest, and I could not feel happier, more content, or more confident in ME than I do right now! I pray that it lasts, but I know it is going to take MY hard work along with God’s blessings to get the job done! If you are not following me on Facebook yet, please go to Body By Brenda to follow along with the 30-Days To a More Confident You! Challenge that I am putting myself through. I challenge you to come along on this journey with me. I am only on day 3, and the posts are all there for you to reflect back to.
This kind of fit in with today’s Challenge post.
I know with my recent struggles, some people were even worried that I may be giving up on my dreams and goals all together. No worries there! I KNOW I can get where I want to be. I am just more of a “toe dipper” than a “jump in all at once” type of person! It doesn’t really matter HOW you get there, but GET IN THE WATER!!!
MAKE today GREAT!!!
