Have you ever tried to make yourself fit somewhere that just wasn’t for you? I spent a great deal of my adult life trying to “fit” into where I thought I should go according to society. It wasn’t until last year I realized I don’t have to “fit”. I can make my own way.
I have always been the type of person who is caring and compassionate, that is just me. If you need a friend to talk to I will talk to you night or day. This is often a one way road..I don’t mind. I am getting a little off track here though.
It made a difference for that one
When you are a person who gives and helps others you often don’t get anything in return. You really don’t even expect anything. Seeing someone succeed. Seeing their smiling face and knowing, it is because YOU made a difference, because YOU put aside whatever you might be dealing with to help them, that just makes your heart full.
What does this have to do with health and fitness? A lot actually. Many people are struggling on a daily basis to achieve results. To reach their goals. Sometimes they want to look smokin’ hot in a swimsuit, sometimes they just want to be healthy and feel better. More often then not people just don’t know where to start. Or they have started so many times they are ready to give up. I get it, I was one of those people. I knew exactly what I needed to do but I wasn’t doing it. I was ready to give up and just be unhealthy for the rest of my life. Until someone(several people) came along and gave me direction. They inspired me and they gave me opportunities to help other people in a large way. They helped me find my way, which has allowed me to help others find their way.
I have met so many truly inspiring people while on this journey. I spend my day talking to people about their goals and what they can do to reach them. I LOVE that! I wonder if they realize how much talking to them is helping me too? It keeps me motivated.
There is no way I can save the world. But as long as I help one person to reach their goals and become the best they can be, then it is all worth it to me. Many people probably don’t understand why I do what I do, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
