Good morning! As some of you know my life has had quite a few changes taking place in the past year or so. I can fill you in with a short video because it will take too long to explain here. The changes have been positive, but I have and do go out of my comfort zone daily because life is meant to be lived! In a nutshell, I moved in with my bf of 4 years (minus or 6 month breakup) and we took a 2nd chance on one another! ❤️❤️We have grown closer and bonded so much since that breakup too! We had a rough spring (a story in itself) and here we are with the Christmas 🎄holiday and a new year upon us! As a health 💪and fitness coach I’m working on a new routine with my business as well as my own fitness goals! I’ll admit it’s been a struggle to find my ⚖️ and routine again, but I will! If you find your life shifting, let it shift, but don’t throw in the towel! Find your new routine and keep moving forward! I’m just readjusting my sail and will be going full speed towards my goals very soon!!! 👊👊 ⛵️ .

Week 12. The countdown is on. The journey started so long ago, and to think now, there is less than a week until the end of this chapter of the story. ————————————————————————
Well you may notice one photo not in here - my bible streak - why? I missed a day. Not sure how, but if anything through this has taught me is not to get hung up on the one day missed - just don’t make it a habit. So the next day, as I wanted to beat myself up for failing God, because in a nut shell that’s how I felt, I instead dug deeper, and started the streak over. Plus in the end - this will not be about a number streak - it will be about God working in my life.
Same thing with working out. My body has been running on fumes. My last 2 workouts have been horrible, but as Atomic Habits taught me - just show up. Keep the habit going even if you’re only able to give a portion of what you would on a normal day. You’ll bounce back! Just keep working, even on the days you don’t feel like it. It’s the same in EVERY aspect of your life. Some days you’re not gonna feel like you’re “in-love” with your spouse - love anyway. The list goes on and on... ————————————————————————
Week 12 also ended with an amazing speaker whom I got to work with @bobgoff. If you haven’t read his books, well you should. Loving isn’t always easy, but, as Jesus models, even when we forget a day in the Bible app, or have a slow run, or get mad at a spouse, or forget to do something for a friend you promised to do, or maybe you were “wronged....” either way - if Jesus forgave us while we were all sinners, then why not live a life doing the same?!————————————————————————
So, the gist of this week is simple. You’re going to mess up even when you think you have everything planned out. What’s important is what you do in that moment of failure - live it in or rise from it?! The choice is yours. I hope you chose to see the opportunity in tomorrow and rise to the occasion today. Enough writing it’s run time!👊🏼
Make sure the Bear has your back.⠀
The run up to Christmas threatens to be a bit of a limbo when you're running your own business. Some avenues of work temporarily dry up as the festive season hits, while others intensify as clients desperately try to get projects ready for the new year. Similarly with marketing - it's the perfect time to wish collaborators old and recent a happy holiday (and remind them you're around), but it might not be the best time to reach out to new people with a holiday season rapidly approaching. Quite often you don't know whether to stick or twist as a result. So as well as finishing up lots of projects, this week is about planning my marketing offensive for the New Year. In the 30 months since being fully self-employed, I've been fortunate enough to have a forward momentum. Things generally seem to stay relatively constant or be gradually building. But in these down times - where anxiety can always creep in - it's good to have a bear of about this size for support. Someone to (literally) lean on and talk through ideas with about all the plans for 2019. I'm going to be trying to dig deeper on certain areas of my work and also venture into some unexplored territory, right out of my comfort zone. I'll need all the support I can get. So better get a bear.⠀
This is Shaun thinking about his private call with our team tonight 💕
I get it, Shaun, but be easy. It's not till 6:30 tonight.
Still time for YOU to join and be part of THIS!!! PS the CEO of the company will be with us next week.
Our team is kind of a BIG deal in case you haven't noticed.
If you're gonna join forces, you might as well join with the BEST!
May it be Your will, G‑d, our G‑d and the G‑d of our fathers, that You should lead us in peace and direct our steps in peace, and guide us in peace, and support us in peace, and cause us to reach our destination in life, joy, and peace (If one intends to return immediately, one adds: and return us in peace). Save us from every enemy and ambush, from robbers and wild beasts on the trip, and from all kinds of punishments that rage and come to the world. May You confer blessing upon the work of our hands and grant me grace, kindness, and mercy in Your eyes and in the eyes of all who see us, and bestow upon us abundant kindness and hearken to the voice of our prayer, for You hear the prayers of all. Blessed are You G‑d, who hearkens to prayer. 🙏🏽👑🦁❤️ Amen. #leadership#lead#letmypeoplego#leo#heavensgate#heaven#phoenixarizona#goals#lifestyle#mindfulness#keeponswimming#keepmovingforward#LISTEN
👏👏From @temmy_balogun - Impressive! Ghanaian President Donates His Salary To Save Lives
Ghana’s incumbent president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, recently showed a philanthropic act through donation of his #salary for the month of November 2018 (equivalent of 5,000 USD) to the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra.
This stands as his contribution into a fund set up at the National Reconstructive Plastic Surgery and Burns Centre (RPSBC). President Akufo-Addo who was on a tour of the Greater Accra Region stopped over at the hospital to commission a new facility for the RPSBC. He expressed his appreciation to Dr. Opoku Ware Ampomah who heads the team at the centre, for their exceptional dedication to saving lives and putting smiles on the faces of their patients.

You may not see it yet; but don’t lose your faith; don’t lose your footage. I know you feel weary at times, but STAND and STAY on the faith walk. I know you don’t know what to do, but keep walking forward. Don’t look back and go back to the old just because you don’t see yet how God is going to cause things in your life to unfold. Don’t let fear hold you hostage; let faith launch you forward. Breath and Keep Walking. God is with you and it is all going to work out.
2 Corinthians 5:7 (NKJV)
7 For we walk by faith, not by sight
Really, thank you all. You are my backbone - Things will go smoothly until they get rough. Your attitude is the most important weapon you'll have. So use it wisely.
Now is your opportunity to be strong when things do get rough.
To make sure your fairytale turns into reality, you must remind yourself that it is an adventure. And when you get to the top and you tell your stories about all the crap and s**t you had been through, it will show on your face. It will be heard in your voice.
Each of us has our own concerns and issues we must solve. Today I had a lot to take on.
My advice for you, look at it as an adventure. This is going to be hard at first. However, once you keep reminding yourself "This is an adventure. This is an adventure." Hopefully you start to believe it and more importantly, trust it.
That exact phrase, "This is an adventure. This is an adventure", had kept me strong all day. If those words do not relate to you, find some type of phrase that keeps you going when things are really really tough.
I got this quote from Peter Pan. As we all know, Peter Pan has a bright imagination and sees things that are difficult enough fun manner. Yes, that is a fairytale, but so is dreaming about becoming a millionaire, a billionaire, superstar, anything you ever desired.
Get out there and make your fairytale a reality.

It’s time that I gave a big shout out to this dude. .
After our serendipitous meeting on a flight to @zoehardman’s wedding in Ibiza at @alipittam’s Can Basora. My life has definitely changed for the better.
For a while I’ve wanted to find a way to help people understand their own Mental health so they wouldn’t end up in situations like I did in 2009.
I wanted to but I never really found the right way. Whether it is was down to my own confidence to do it alone or if it was just a timing issue, I’ll never know. What I do know is that teaming up with @thenakedprofessor was the greatest choice I’ve ever made. I truly believe that we can both make a difference together.
Sometimes you can’t do it all on your own and I’m so incredibly grateful that I have this ‘cheeky’ Professor to walk this line, by my side.
I just wish that he’d hit the gym a bit more though #lazy
