I've been around and around the block lately with happiness... personal happiness... not attention from someone else, not what someone can bring to the table, buy me, do for me... but pure happiness that is solely me... that no one can truly take away... and it's hard.. It's so hard to look at your life and think okay.. what am I purely in control of... and what makes me happy no matter what is falling apart .. then I came across this picture from a year or maybe even two ago... I have no idea when but I realized what makes me happy is my fitness goals ... It's that simple.. if I'm actively working towards being the best version of myself I am a happier and better version of me... my confidence, my attitude, my whole being solely revolves around my fitness world and goals... when that slips... when I don't have control over it... anxiety, self doubt and a multitude of things have space to invade the happy, confident girl I am and love to be... Why give self doubt an inch? If you don't love every piece of yourself you have to find a way to make yourself happy it tends to fall into the hands of people who don't deserve that control... but if you can find happiness in yourself, a gym routine, a hobby.. find it. I challenge you to find something that brings you joy before the new year comes ... start now... don't ever wake up and feel inadequate in life.. You are enough ... You are good enough ... and you are beautiful ... let it shine and I promise you'll feel so much better.
