Sometimes we think we know how someone’s life is by the look of their social media and what they post regularly. Had an amazing chat with my girl @thebrittloren about wanting to just feel free and confident. To not feel like we are being judge if we decide to tap into a different side of ourselves. Sometimes even our closest friends and family can make us feel a little uncomfortable in our skin. When it comes to me, I’m so used to being that athlete and a fit chick, but at the end of the day I’m still a lady that sometimes wants to dress up and feel sexy and confident. And it can feel uncomfortable when people ask you “why did you dress up? Or who are you trying to impress?” Sometimes we just want to feel good for ourselves! We are just having that kind of day. Our outward appearance doesn’t define what we hold inside. It doesn’t always illustrate what we feel in our hearts or illustrate what our goals in life are. We have to remind ourselves that it also doesn’t take away from what we’ve accomplished. It doesn’t take away from the masters degree I have. It’s doesn’t take away from my accomplishments as a trainer. If some days I want to dress a little more edgy because it fits my mood, then I can do that. We need to remember that we don’t have to ask for permission to express who we are and what we feel. It’s important to remember that we are all unique people with some many different characteristics. Sometimes some of us just take a little time to come out of our shells and blossom
"If you feel something don't let peer pressure manipulate you." -Kanye West
It's funny, people take this quote at its value until I tell them that (as far as I'm aware) it's a Kanye West quote. Just a thought.
Photo is from the wonderful experimental shoot I did with @sepehrzam and @cubtrina. I really liked a lot of these pictures it's really hard not to post them all
One of the most insane sunsets I’ve ever seen. Then I added a filter to it. This was my first weekend spent in LA when I first moved out here. Nature’s beauty can make you appreciate life so much! (I’ll show the before ) #californialove
It kinda sucks when you want something so badly, and you don’t know why you want it that bad because you know it might not be worth it but deep down it is to you. But as always there is consequences in order to have what you want.
Just remember...”IT’S NOT TRUE...” We all have goals we want to accomplish. We all have moments of greatness when we truly feel the energy and excitement we have to achieve our goals. Then sometimes we hit a bump or experience an obstacle that gets us to doubt ourselves and our capabilities. Or we hear something from someone that can have a negative an impact on us and stop us dead in our tracks to where we’ve envisioned ourselves. Just remember we are designed for maximum performance. The only way to truly realize this potential is to stay the course. You’ll never know what you’re meant to do, or even what you’re NOT meant to do if you don’t give yourself a chance to live through a true experience where you give it 100%. Quitting is easy. It’s harder to remind yourself that any negative thoughts you have are NOT TRUE. So the next time you doubt yourself say, “IT’S NOT TRUE” and get back to work. End of story.
