Internal dialogue is a DANGEROUS thing! 😣 Saturday flyin’ high super pumped. Then got a cold, skipped 2 days of workouts, and all of a sudden I’m a failure. It was TWO DAYS for goodness sake! Why is that this first place the mind goes instead of allowing for room for the unplanned hiccups along the way. Just get back to it with out all the internal shaming. #goals Add it to the list of things to work on. Your worth it. You’re doing what you can. You can do it. Keep going. ❤️
“Aggressive firefighting is the solution, not the problem.
Aggressive firefighting is knowing how and why.
Aggressive firefighting is about making decisions.
We, as individuals, are accountable to our communities with the skills and the tasks we have willing accepted. We can lead from the tailboard, no matter your position we can have a positive impact.”
All this! ❤️ All the animals moves! .
A Little Obsessed doesn’t have a Saturday workout so I improvised. 10 months ago I did this #80do and was dying. Today I felt challenged but great! #changeishappening oh and if you didn’t catch that last donkey kick! ———> 😁
I remember that recurring feeling/thought...
The one that never failed to slip into a contagious state of frustration & negativity.
The one that seemed to resurface in every rehab “team meeting” ... ⠀
It’s a seemingly small feeling that had MAJOR repercussions for myself, the team, and the company ...
⠀ 👉🏻 UNDER-APPRECIATION .
It began with increased expectations/ increased productivity demands. Never enough!
And It never failed to snowball for everyone... Decreased team moral.
Decreased work ethic.
Decreased desire to go above and beyond.
Decreased passion and pride in what we were contributing.
The above has become “norm” in many of these types of jobs. Healthcare ain’t what it used to be. ;) Maybe that’s why coaching speaks to me so strongly. (One of the many reasons- I should say.)
RECOGNITION is a cornerstone of this company, and an engrained piece of our team culture.
My favorite part? Every love language (read that book, if you haven’t) is checked off —
Words of affirmations? Yep.
Quality time? ✅. Physical touch? (My friends give THE best hugs🤣🤗) Acts of service: every day. The foundation of what we do.
Gift giving? Every month if I show up for myself and my team. ☺️
This photo was during a team retreat where every single love language was checked off, and I was so overwhelmed with JOY. ⠀
If coaching has taught me anything, it’s that those “norms” we’ve all witnessed in the workplace don’t have to be. .
Of course people will doubt, but I’ve realized many just 1) don’t understand the legitimacy + positive impact this company has 2) they fear change.
It’s not for everyone, I respect that fully, but I feel a responsibility to at least educate and share what it could do for my loved ones.
If this community, this opportunity, this freedom, this mission seems interesting to you - DM me! It will NEVER hurt to get more info. ⠀
I’ve come to learn that it pays off to take the road less traveled/comfortable when your heart is in the right place and you’re surrounded by those you TRUST who have gone before you.
That is this team, and I’m so grateful for the continuous affirmation that we are in the right place.💙
Multi-tasking to the MAX! 🌟 Working remotely 🌟car service 🌟 healthy food to go 🌟 Btw a bottle bag makes a great warm insulated bag too! Eggs pepper and onions still hot on the go! PLUS! ———> swipe to check out this killer move from #alo Leg day!!.
Day 2 of getting up out of my desk and making moves at work! My goal to end 2018 strong is to move my body everyday. Whether it’s a workout or a walk I will move. Also i am just Loving this weather and being outside.
I love it. A bit of muay thai.
People always say ahh cardio is boring but actually its not when you find something you love to do. Find a sport or exercise class that you have some interest in and try it out. If you dont like that one then try another one until you find something you love, and then SMASH IT!!!!! @zago.cesar
The best part after a workout is stretching then taking advantage of any photo opportunities.

Painful memories? Here we go... Watching at the age of 7 as my dad cried in the hallway at the news of my grandfather’s unexpected passing.
The insane pressure of comparison in childhood as an identical twin.
The misplaced desire to fit in/inadequacy felt on that first day of middle school - after being homeschooled in 6th grade.
Calling off a wedding with the one you love.
The harmful effects of 30 years of people pleasing.
Feeling left behind in life... Ouch. Random, but real and at one point- RAW. In my bible study, we were asked to share a memory of each life stage where we could remember suffering/pain of some kind. For me, that’s easy to do. Not because I dwell on the crappy parts of life... but because I have intentionally reflected so deeply on them over the last few years. ☝🏻 We were then asked to rewrite the list, but this time, write how each of those moments played a part in shaping you.
Yes. Now THIS is my specialty. ;) Taking time to recognize how God has used it ALL- every single teeny, intertwined detail for our good. Some situations, I’m still in the waiting stage (“God, how will you use this?”)- but the trust is there bc his promises are too. And he’s proven himself again and again that his promise to turn ashes to beauty is NOT an empty one.
Finally - “Reflect on your past experiences & lessons learned, and narrow down a few passions that have been born from these dark places.” I’m truly thankful that coaching gives me an avenue to reflect on this every single day. My passion is to share my experiences & the lessons I’ve learned THROUGH them in order to help others in whatever way I can. And coaching has provided a platform to do that.
It’s cathartic for me to reflect, but most meaningful to know that my experiences & lessons learned are destined to help at least one other human who may be lacking direction or hope.
Never before did I have a desire to use my voice like this, but the confidence has grown and so has my gratitude. For I know god can use ALL things/moments - even the terrifying, crappy, grief-stricken ones - for good. And doing my best to help others achieve this sense of hope seems like a good place to start.💙
