I Have always heard people say "Dont worry about what other people think" And I have said it time and time. But here is the thing, I have worried about it. WHY? I have been competing in bodybuilding for 10 years. Training for 14yrs. I suffered from terrible stage fright for at least 6 years of competing. After a show I would sometimes cry and say WHY am I doing this to myself??? I had a fight or flight feeling and my body would shake uncontrollable. I never had a body image problem. I couldn't figure it out. Then a few months later I would do another show🤤😢🤤I knew I was going to feel embarressed again!!! But I REFUSED to stop. Even my husband questioned why I continued to put myself thru that feeling over and over. I knew deep down I did not want this to be the end of something I love to do. I could bust my ASS in the gym and do the hard work. I could control my food and I have a strong commitment to carrying out a goal. So I refused to let stage fright take away my passion. So many people can get on stage and fly. Me that was my nemesis. That was my thing I had to work on for me. My goal.... And I did it!!! It took along time but I didn't quit. I just refused to quit. Now more then ever I am more confident and assure of who I am mind and body. Moral of the story, lol😁Don't quit!!! Don't ever have regrets!!!! Be Confident, find your inner strength. It may take time but it will happen. LIve your life the way you want too✌
“It seems we have an obsession to fix ourselves and our attention is wrapped up in our shortcomings.”

Service? Commitment? Integrity? Honesty? Which one was it? Today after Paige bought some clothing, a cashier inadvertently forgot to put a pair of shoes she bought into the packet, before we left the till. An hour later he tracked us down to hand them over... in a place with thousands of people, thousands of shops... wow! Arigatou 🙏🏽🙏🏽! #japan#traveltales#japanesehonesty#serviceethics#lifelessons#yodobashiumeda
Find yourself a dreamer, someone who will teach you what it is to dream with your eyes open. When your eyes shimmer between the curves of your lips, find someone who listens to you and reminds you how beautiful you are. Between I want to do this, I want to be here and I want to become this, find someone who says, we will together make things happen.
Some people tell me falling in love is over rated, relationships and family are too, commitment is too much work. But, people don't realise all these are not jargons but the reality you will face eventually. Find yourself a team, a home team rather that will stand ahead of you and would take a bullet for you. Find yourself some colors, some sunshine, some conversation and a lot of honesty. Find yourself.

It took me years to learn that there's no such thing as "no time." That's an excuse. Make time your friend. Use it toward the positive, toward what you truly want to do with your life. Don't make time your enemy. Don't make it an excuse.
Rain or shine! Hot or cold! I show up.. not always motivated but always determined to achieve my goals.. I now know that fear is not a bad thing.. in fact I’m totally motivated by it.. for I refuse to allow it to stop me from achieving greatness.. in every area of life.. I will always do things even if I’m totally afraid. So never allow fear to stop u because most people absolutely respond out of fear and let it take over.. being brave doesn’t mean you’re not afraid.. it means you do it anyways 🙌🏽 my motivation on this Tuesday morning.. have a great day y’all 💋 #beautyinstrength#weightliftingwomen#girlswholift#strengthtraining#fitness#fitnessgirl#liftergirl#lifelessons#dailyquotes#selfie#gymgirls

Someone once told me that arrogance is thinking I’m better than everyone else. But confidence is knowing that no one is better than me. I love that definition of confidence. I also think it’s closely related to self-esteem. And one of the most memorable things I’ve heard about self-esteem is if you want to have more self-esteem, do more estimable acts. And that gets all into character and integrity. I’m excited to see what we learn today about confidence!

Book: This is not your story
This is a very motivating story of four characters. Shauriya, Miraya, anubhav and kasturi. Every character has its own dreams and story and teaches us a great lesson. .
As the story passes everyone become friends and their dreams began to fulfill.
This book is a perfect combination of motivation and love story. It motivates you to chase your dreams. It teaches us to move on. .
I still remember that the most shocking part of this book was when parents of anubhav died in an accident. I remember that I read that part when I was going to my university and it made me shocked for a long time. .
The whole story is a combination of good and bad emotions. The chemistry of Miraya and Anubhav is super cute. They complete each other with their stories. Furthermore,... . Ok! I will not break your suspense. Go and read this story. It's worth reading.
Some of my favorite lines from this book:
If you don’t give all of yourself to the life you want, heart, soul and mind, you won’t
go anywhere at all�. .
You have to
have faith in yourself, confidence in who you are and want to be, and be brave
enough to take the steps towards achieving your dream.
I want to be single and yet attached. Alone yet accompanied. I want to be everything and nothing, all at once!�
My spirit animal is my granddaughter Yemaya. Her name standing for the Goddess of the sea which is highly worshiped in the Caribbean. And my own Yemaya lives up to her name. She knows what her name means.
Over the summer she learned how to swim with no fear at the age of three. Running and diving into the water while screaming her name saying, "I AM THE GODDESS OF THE SEA. I AM THE GODDESS OF THE WATER. "Heck, I didn't find out what the root of my name was until my 30's. Which is Nike, Goddess of victory.
I watch her bravery. It inspires me. It's lovely to see me or at least a fourth of me in female form so confident so free. Thus far there has only been sons, males from the Earth of me. Then she came to bless me. She came to show a different version of me ❤
This is one of my favorite quotes, from a very powerful movie, The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
If you ever wonder why you continue to fall into bad relationships or why you attract the wrong people and commit yourself to bad friendships, take a step back and look inward. Is there something in you that is drawn to these negative situations? Is there something in you that keeps you in these negative situations? Deep down, whether from childhood or adult life, do you feel you deserve to receive poor treatment or do you feel undeserving of anything better?
Truth is, we accept the love we think we deserve. If you are in a great relationship and have amazing friends, this statement still stands. This means you have fought to ensure you are treated the way you wish and deserve to be treated. You deserve supportive and loving friends, a loving and respectful lover, team player co-workers, appreciative bosses, etc. You deserve better.
"If one wants to lead, he must first serve." I love this SO much because its SO true. True leadership is made when we start by serving and are then raised up together. In true humility, the best leaders are born. Motherhood is a beautiful picture of this. As we serve our family, God helps us lead our children in the way they should go.
