Happy Fitness Friday y’all! Lowd have mercy it has been busy and I am proud to say I have been keeping my workout & nutrition on track. I made a commitment to myself last April that I was going to make time to get back to my workouts because its something I truly love and it make me feel proud of myself. Someone asked me recently to write about how I find balance in my life. I actually just got a little teary eyed as I wrote that. The truth is I don’t have balance in my life. I am working toward having balance in my life. But what does that even mean?
The definition of balance is “a condition in which different elements are equal or in the correct proportions.”
Wow that sounds lovely. If I ever do achieve that I will def take notes and share. As for right now, well, its about transformation for me.
The definition of a spiritual transformation is ” A change in the meaning system that a person holds as a basis for self-definition, the interpretation of life, and overarching purposes and ultimate concerns”
The life you once lived to be unrecognizable to you. I really loved that. I love it not because my life stinks and I want everything to change but because I believe we all deserve the limitless amount of joy, health, wealth, and happiness that is available to us. I am learning to let go of fear and trade it for faith. For instance last year I worked so many hours everyday and choose not to go to the gym out of fear. Fear that everything was just going to stop. All of the amazing things that were happening with my career would just stop if I stopped. Only in the last few months have I realized the truth. The truth is I love what I do. I photograph straight from my heart and soul and that will never just stop. I need to take great care of myself and my loved ones so that my spirit can be sweet and open and gentle so I can show up as that person to all of my shoots. In order to bring an open heart to every shoot I have to have self care and self love.
I do want a more balanced life. I want to spend more time with friends, more time with my family, more time just laying in the park and most importantly I want to be 100 percent precent while I’m having those experiences. I believe transformation is rocky & painful but completely necessary to live the life I was meant to live.
