One of my favorite quotes is:
“When I let go of what I am I become what I might be”
I love this quote because much like many of nature’s wonders, transformation does not happen until nature is willing and able to let go of its current state. When we are willing to let go and trust the process of life, we too, can transform.
I most certainly found this to be true in my own personal growth; spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically. I made a decision to release thoughts and behaviors that no longer serve me and let go of control. I chose to trust the process of life. I chose to believe that only right and good action is taking place in my life regardless of the package it comes in. I have taken and continue to take purposeful steps each day to focus on the positive. I came to believe that if I kept holding on to what was “safe” I would never really be “free”.
Another favorite quotes is:
“Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity nothing exceeds the criticisms made of the habits of the poor by the well housed, well warmed and well fed”
- Herman Melville
In life you can never be sure of another’s journey. To judge them is cruel, not only to them, but to you as well, as it will harm your spirit and your soul.
I believe that change happens in an instant. You don't always see it happening, but when you are working on being a better version of you, you will know when it has happened. It can start out as simple as a change of opinion or a change of heart. When your intention is right, this change will grow into a beautiful new way about you and as a result, your life will change.
I believe you have to stand in your truth. Know or learn what you stand for and what you are willing to stand up for. Know your boundaries and be willing to explore the world and all that it has to offer.
I believe in safely pushing myself into my “stretch zone”. I am a successful three-time 70.3 Ironman triathlete and Marathon runner because of this belief. I have pushed my body and my mind to limits I never thought possible. I have learned many valuable lessons in life as a result.
