A new semester = a new opportunity for change to occur. And that is why I created a challenge for myself: The Semester Long Transformation.
I have learned from past semesters that obsessing over looking thin does not equal a full and happy life. I have tried dieting many times, and I have failed. Every. Single. Time. But by failing I learned something important:
“The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place. It will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me or nobody is going to hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you’re hit, it is about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.” -Rocky
I refuse to give up. With every new DAY there is opportunity for change and growth. Life is meant to be lived to the fullest and the fact that I don’t unconsciously wake up thankful to be alive feels wrong. I’ve let too much of my life go to waste thinking, “What’s the point?” because I wasn’t where I wanted to be. I may not be there yet, but I’m working on it. Small changes hold big power.
Mind. Body. Soul.
Each week I will dedicate a blog post focusing on an aspect above. I will talk about the importance of mental health awareness, how I’ve learned to intuitively eat and the numerous ways I stay active! Join me?
Start: September 9th, 2015.
