Motivation! More to myself as I needed a good reminder of what I can achieve
The pic on the left is from 2010, long before I even though of grabbing a dumbbell. The one on the right is from April 2017, the best shape I've ever had after 2,5 years working out properly (with the usual ups and downs) but of course, knowing there's still a long way to go . Now, having one of those downs because of a couple of hectic and unfocused months , I keep telling myself I'm skinny again just because I lost size and definition. I tend to forget what skinny really meant in my body's standards and genetics.
This pic is to stop calling myself skinny! ♂️Yes, it is good to assess how far you are from the goal, but that shouldn't overshadow the progress and the pride of what you have achieved.
What a day! Reposting this pic from last year's Pride in Budapest because, after having the holiday bubble popped by terror and fear, today more than ever I need to remind myself what I stand for: Bravery and Love. "I'd rather die with PRIDE than live in FEAR" is what I wrote on my body as a reply to the Orlando attack last year, but I guess I can only now understand what it represents.
It's hard to believe that a coincidence is what saved me from being at La Rambla today, where the attacks in Barcelona happened. It has been a very touching situation but not more than receiving all the love from friends and family who sent their messages to see if I was okay.
Fortunately, I was not very close to La Rambla and, besides the fear that comes along in a situation like this, I'm fine. I'm safe.
Tomorrow is a new day for my favorite city in the world! Let's wake up thankful for another morning, another day to love, another opportunity to brighten someone's day by putting a smile on their face Much love to all! And thank you once again for caring so much! Y a por todo, #Barcelona!
