i'm gonna change things up here.
instead of beginning each post with a little ol' meme and then my little ol' spin on it and then on with the blog post...these little ol' spins are gonna take on a life of their own.
which means, if i decide to blog on a meme, that will be the post.
if i decide to blog about the weekend at magic lake with photos, that will be the post.
but you probably won't be seeing the two together any more.
i'm not totally ruling it out but simplifying.
so here's goes!
this very much hits right at home lately!
well, not really 'right at home' since muscle barbie lives on her own.
more like, this strikes a chord in our family lately.
from the moment she was conceived, we wanted only the best for muscle barbie.
i can't say that we steered her in any one direction.
her direction found her.
and although it is her story to tell and i'm not going to get into it too deep here, i will tell you that she hit rock effin' bottom to find her path in life.
and then sometimes, the past comes back around.
and then sometimes, you choose to walk that path of no regret.
have you ever?
walked that path of no regret?
it's not easy.
it takes guts.
it's takes some effin' fortitude to know that what landed you in the largest abyss of your life is presenting a second chance.
holy eff balls, gentle reader!
do you walk that path or turn your back?
if you answer honestly, i bet most of us would turn our back and run like hell was chasing after us, if something so hurtful stepped in our path again.
but...there's always a but...
but what if you forgo the second chance?
but what if you run the other way?
but what if you are too scared to?
but what if you faced it head on?
but what if you gave in to that second chance?
and what if you went into that second chance with your eyes wide open.
not looking for the bad, necessarily, but looking to keep your heart and soul in tact. but still testing the waters.
not many twenty somethings can do that.
and yes, i am going toot her horn...muscle barbie did just that.
she faced that path of no regret head on, with her head screwed on straight.
i was nervous for her.
i was scared for her.
i was hopeful for her.
and ya know what?
she came out at the end of that path of no regret just fine.
a little wiser.
a little more solid.
and knowing a hell of a lot more who and what she wants!
you go, girl! i am proud of you!
she knows exactly what she wants and she is going for it with guts and gusto!
we have been watching her build her clientele and it's freaking awesome!
i listen to her every day...she tells me about the breakthroughs her clients are experiencing. i hear how proud of them she is and i hear how proud of herself she is.
she is helping people achieve their health goals...whether it's losing weight, gaining muscle, preparing for a body building show...she's getting shit done, gentle reader.
she knows the type of client that best suits her training mindset and she's going after them! her appointment book continues to fill up.
she's not stopping.
she's just getting warmed up.
yep, this girl knows exactly who she wants in her life and she knows exactly what she wants in her life.
hell and high water cannot stop her, just wait and see!
