As a parent, we celebrate every little victory our baby has. Some are big things. Baby takes their first step? You better believe we’ve got our camera out. But we can’t help but celebrate the small things too! Gives a little smile? We’ve never felt more proud. I think I’ve spent more time clapping for Evaire in the last few months than I’ve spent sleeping!
And when we’re not celebrating a victory, we’re forgiving our little ones for every mistake they make. Just today, Evaire smooshed food into the carpet, dumped water on the floor, unplugged my charger over and over again, and screamed instead of napped. Yet, I forgave her immediately because, well, how could I not??
What if we celebrated our own victories the way we celebrate the victories of infants? What if we cheered for ourselves for getting out of bed today, when we couldn’t get out yesterday? What if we celebrated the fact that we were able to go to work because we’re healthy and able? And what if, instead of criticizing ourselves for every little thing, we decided to forgive ourselves and just move on, promising to do better next time?
Evaire learns and grows so much every day. I am in constant awe at how smart she is, and how impressive her new little tricks are. Let’s all make an effort not to shortchange ourselves and assume that just because we’ve grown up that we can’t change or grow. Let’s celebrate our victories and forgive ourselves for our mistakes. Let’s be in awe of ourselves and what we can do! We deserve it

Youre at a whole other level
⚠️ Warning: Long Post...😊
How often have you thought about a dream, a business idea, or your passion / purpose, but figured it was unachievable?
I know I struggled with this, and still do sometimes. I look back at my childhood and realize there was so much in my home and family environment that shaped my mind into being very limited.
When I was in high school, I remember telling my family, “If I made just $3,000 a month, and had a decent $250k house I’d be solid...” Now I’m like wtf was I thinking? Why did I allow myself to have such simple goals and thoughts? And it’s not just about the money. I noticed the same about my thoughts with changing the world, writing a book, starting a business that actually solved a problem in society...
That limited mindset, allowed me to set limited goals, which trained my mind to take limited action (just enough action to reach that limited goal).
I know I have friends and family that struggle with this. I’d love your thoughts. Do you struggle with this, and what do you think has contributed to it?
"Happiness is not a destination, it is a way of life"💫💫
Me encanta esta frase colocada en @activaswomen ya que nos hace entender que estar en el camino ya es un éxito que debemos celebrar. Cada día que permanecemos en ese camino en la búsqueda de nuestra meta o sueño debe suponer una ilusión y ser motivo de felicidad.
Y no sé uds. chicas pero en mi caso tristemente 😂😪 tiendo a engordar si no cuido lo que como, algunas personas me dicen que estoy bien así pero realmente debe importar como nos sintamos nosotras y cuando ya has conocido la vida Fit no quieres dejar de estarlo. Por eso he vuelto a la guerra en @activaswomen , y si la verdad comenzar de vuelta siempree cuesta pero vamos a lograr esa meta si porque si! Las invito a unirse a este reto conmigo💪💪
In those moments you feel teeny tiny, like you’re stuck in one spot, like you aren’t making a difference... keep GOING! I got in a bit of a fitness rut since school has started. I lost muscle mass and my body fat percentage went up. I ate junk and was not consistent with my work outs or my sleep schedule. My stress level has been high. .
However, the past few weeks, I’ve managed to get here 3-4 days/week (even for a short work out if needed) and cut the junk food at least in half. I can’t say my sleep schedule or stress level is any better with the semester coming to an end, but I went those few weeks making small changes with the things I felt I could manage. FINALLY today I noticed a bit of muscle definition that I didn’t see before. Hello little guy! Nice to see you again 🙂 Keep going, if you’re stuck. And just because you got off track doesn’t mean you won’t be able to get back to where you were. Chances are your victory is just around the corner! #KeepGoing#HappyFriday#ThatGuyKnewIWasTakingSelfies#StrongWomen#StrongLady#LadiesWithMuscle#MissedMyMurves#MusclePlusCurves#MotivationFriday#FitnessFriday#Werk#BeProudOfYourself

CHOOSE CHALLENGE TO CHANGE
Push your boundaries. Do something that makes you feel a little uncomfortable. Opt for the more difficult, the more challenging.
Because you are different. You do not look for the easy path, that one that everyone else takes. You want to be better than you were yesterday. You are a dreamer. You can imagine a life that will give meaning to you and those you love. So go get it! It won’t come to you, you MUST go and get it for yourself.
It is by your mind, your action, and your will to pursue.
No Gym No Problem‼️
Once in a while switch to outdoor workout. It will improve your mood, enhanced self-esteem, fresh air has more oxygen and it’s free‼️
Beat workout boredom 💪🏾

“Nobody is going to do your life for you. You have to do it yourself, whether you’re rich or poor, out of money or making it, the beneficiary of ridiculous fortune or terrible injustice. And you have to do it no matter what is true. No matter what is hard. No matter what is unjust, sad, sucky things befall you. Self pity is a dead end road. You can make the choice to drive down it. It’s up to you to decide to stay parked there or to turn around and drive out” – Cheryl Strayed.📸 Joshua Sortino
Aveces circunstancias en la vida te llevan a hacer lo que en algún momento creíste imposible. Yo no era una persona que se fijara mucho en mi estado físico y el gimnasio. No por qué fuera difícil pero nunca le di mucha importancia. Ahora lo hago por salud y adaptación más que por lo físico. Antes del accidente no podía hacer ni un pull up ahora los hago Hasta con la silla. 🤪 hacer que el corazón corra de vez en cuando es bueno para la salud 🤙
Certain circumstances in life makes you do what you once thought it was impossible. I wasn’t the type of person that looked at my physical appearance or the gym not cause it was hard just because to me It didn’t matter. Now I do it to adapt better and for health. Prior to the accident I couldn’t even do a pull up now I do them with the chair 😁 making your heart race is good for your health 🤙
