Life is all about change and discovering who you are. As we go through life, we continue to grow and learn. Over the past few months, I have discovered that what I am genuinely passionate about is health and fitness. The purpose of this post is to introduce this new theme to my site. Health and fitness is simply amazing. It is a commitment to take care of yourself each and every single day. What exactly is health? I personally believe that health goes well beyond the body. Health encompasses many aspects. Physical health is most commonly associated with health. However, there are many kinds of health including financial health, relationship health, work health, mental health, and so much more. There are so many more aspects to being healthy than just taking care of your body. A person is truly healthy when a proper life balance is found. As I mentioned above, a lot goes into being healthy and those components are often over looked.
Fitness is being physically fit and healthy. What is finesse? Finesse is doing something in a subtle and delicate way. Finesse is fine tuning being healthy and fit in order to live a happier life. This blog will be about becoming the healthiest version of yourself that you can. I am here to offer encouragement and motivation to all of my viewers. Let’s grow and continue to learn about life together!
Good evening. I’m here to tell you to stop hoping for your dreams to come true. Life is short and there’s no time to waste. Start making your dreams come true. How old are you? Are you 20, 40, 60 years old? Are you somewhere in between? It doesn’t matter. You are never too old or too young to start working on your dreams. Let me ask you another question, how do you spend your time? Are you like most people and work your job and then go home? At what point in your day do you invest in your future self? You are not having a productive day if you do not set time aside to work on yourself. Each of you needs to set time aside to work on your health, planning your future, thinking about finances, etc. Each of us has something that we need to improve on.
I’ll openly admit that there are things I need to work on. I had thought about making a blog for a long time but I did not put the effort forward to create my blog until recently. Hope is not the reason that I currently have my blog. Effort and persistence is the reason I have my blog. I set time aside in my day to work on my writing. I want to be a blogger. This is how I am working on my goals. Set some time aside to think about your future. Make a plan that you can reasonably follow. Stop hoping for your dreams to come true. Now is the time to put the effort in and get results. I am challenging each of you. This is the time to improve yourself. Stop hoping, start doing.
When you were a kid, did you have a crazy dream that you chose not to follow? Most of us do. I personally wanted to be a singer. What holds us back from trying? For me, it was the inability to have a stable income. For others, it is their stage-fright or their fear of judgment. Do not let your fear hold you back from what you love to do. I continue to do performances whenever I get the chance but I don’t pursue singing for monetary purposes. Perhaps you wanted to be a writer, or a doctor, or a performer. Go start a blog, apply to your local college, go to an acting audition. Start chasing your dreams today. Until you put hard work and dedication into your dreams, they will only be dreams.
Your future starts with you. Embrace change. Learn to love the feeling of being uncomfortable. If you spend your entire life in your comfort zone, you will never learn to live. You owe it to yourself to chase your dreams. Each of you amazing people has a purpose. You still have a heartbeat in your chest because your story is still being written. I am challenging everyone to take some time tonight to think about the path you’re walking in life. Are you content? Do you even know what you want to do in life? It doesn’t matter if you’re twenty or if you’re sixty, you can still make the decision to open a new chapter in your life and start fresh. I have always known that my purpose in life was to help others. This week I realized that my words have power and that I can help others by being an uplifting light. This is my purpose and I am here for you!
Who is your role model? How would you describe this person? Motivated? Determined? What about your role model do you admire? Each day that passes is a chance for you to become a role model for someone else. Do not try to be your role model. Identify the qualities that you admire about them, whether it’s their kindness or their financial success and instill those qualities in yourself. Continue to be the person that you are today but allow yourself to grow and possess those qualities. Get up. Go do something today. Hold a door for a stranger, give a compliment to someone you don’t know, go for a walk, work on yourself! Pull yourself away from any and all negativity that you might have in your life and do something about it. Don’t sit around and wait for change to happen. Go make change happen. Life is short and this is your only chance to do it right!
Could you see yourself being the exact same person five years from now? I hope that you answered no! Life is about continuously growing and bettering yourself as a person. Whether you get a job promotion or decide to start your own business, you need to keep growing. I personally embrace change with open arms. I am twenty years old and I have been the assistant store manager for two businesses. I’m in school for nursing. But, each day I see people settling in life. Don’t settle. You owe yourself so much more than that. Follow your dreams and your passions. I believe that every single one of you has a purpose and are meant to do amazing things. Make it happen. Think of one thing you have always wanted to do but haven’t yet. Go make it happen!
Your mind can be your best friend or your worst enemy. It depends solely on your outlook on life. A quote by Henry Ford states, “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right”. This quote holds a lot of truth, especially in everyday life. If you wake up to go work at a job you can’t stand, you aren’t going to be happy. The paycheck isn’t worth the sacrifice. If you force yourself to stay in a relationship that you don’t want to be in, you aren’t going to be happy. If you break yourself down and continue to fill your mind with negativity, you will not be successful in your actions. However, if you believe in yourself and your own capabilities, you will have a much higher chance of success in all that you do. In order to grow and be happy, you have to trust yourself. Each of you have a flame burning inside of you, a passion, a goal, a story to share. Let your flames burn bright. Be the light in someones darkness. Don’t be the reason that another persons flame dies out. Be happy, be proud, be bold, and above all else, just be yourself. When you are true to yourself, you can overcome any obstacle put in your path. While unfortunate things happen in life, the way that you react to those situations are what define you as a person. Are you going to allow yourself to grow? Will you let yourself sink? The choice is yours.
