WHEN THE MIND HAS DEPARTED THE BODY HAS TO FOLLOW (Run:31.4k/5:01mpk/2:37:41h)
I know it has been awfully quiet on this account for the last three weeks. No adventures, no training updates, no thoughts, just once in a while some snippets on my story board.
Reason for that being, a mayor change is going to happen in my life soon. An idea that first came to my mind two years ago, after having competed in the Ironman Hawaii 2016, realizing that triathlon and competition in particular has lost its meaning to me. An idea (or call it a dream) I have been contemplating ever since.
It is difficult to even wrap your head around it, putting me in a place between madness and the calm confidence of resting in myself, knowing everything will be all right. Words will probably fail to express what this is about, since I do not really know anyways. All I know is, that I have to go to find out!
However, eventually you got to have the courage to make it happen. Perfect timing will never occur, no excuses excepted - you just got this one life!
How do you want to live your life? Are you living the life you envisioned for yourself?

Today I was short fused and grouchy with my son. I needed to find a way to squash the perseverating negative thoughts in my head. I made a decision to step onto the treadmill for 15 min and peace out. A few minutes into it my son peaked his beautiful head through the door questioning if I was going to put him to bed. He looked up at me and said please Mama. He was the good in my day. My delicious dinner made by my husband was awesome. He was the good in my day. I put myself in a better place, a good place. It was actually kind of hard and it took me a few hours but I know tonight I’ll go to bed peaceful.
"The things you take for granted someone else is praying for." Wow this quote is powerful. I hear you mommas crying because you haven’t had any sleep. I hear you full time workers, working over 40 hours a week. Oh and lets not forget the never ending task of doing dishes, piled up laundry and going grocery shopping. Oh how i feel you!
I get stressed SO much and so often. Its in these moments of pure chaos, exhaustion and stress that you can take a step back.
YOU are so incredibly blessed. I have to tell myself this DAILY. Everyone takes things for granted, even if you don’t mean to. Its normal. Were human. But just think to yourself, God thank you so much for these blessings. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to be tired from lack of sleep because you gave me a child. Thank you for providing me with a job! Thank you for the clothes, the dirty dishes and the food. I am so incredibly blessed. And you are too. There are people all around the world praying for what we have.
My mornings are the best!! Shakes and Quality time 😍
Fact:.. when she was 2 months old I decided to change my life with healthy habits after a hard situation and unhealthy pregnancy.
It haven't been easy. No lies! Ups and downs yes. Quitting! Giving up! YES.
BUT 👉 consistency, commitment, everyday motivation, personal development, self love and my girls are what keeps me going.
I didn't only change my habits I changed my mindset. And it does MATTER!! 😉 Trust me .. Mind over matters!! I changed my life.. I decided to live the life I imagined!! #InstaStories#Instagram#TannsLife#3years#StayStrong#ChangeYourMind#ChangeYourLife#mindovermatters#JoinMe
Sebenarnya, abam bersyukur kalau anda tertidur pada minit ke 40, sebab sebelum abam masuk Public Mutual ni, anda akan tertidur di minit ke 4 kalau dengar abam bercakap! @shahreenhazaline boleh mengesahkan perkara ni.' -ShukorJab -
Any progress is Great, as it means something improved, something change for the better.
If I can do it, U can do it too!
THE POWER OF OUR WORDS
The things we think & say have absolute power over what becomes our reality.
It would be incredibly easy for me to look at this picture and begin picking myself apart, pointing out all of the “flaws” I see. If I’m being honest that is my initial reaction when I see any picture or reflection of myself. But what I’m learning is that how I perceive and speak to myself directly dictates how I feel about myself and show up in this world. Posting this picture feels hecka vulnerable and uncomfortable but if I can help even one person feel less alone in how they feel about their body then it’s worth putting out there.
Whenever I catch myself negatively speaking or thinking about my own body(or anyone else’s for that matter) I stop myself and consciously change my vocabulary. I do some digging to reflect on why these negative thoughts and language are my go-to’s.
We are each a product of the programming and conditioning we have received our entire lives, from a multitude of sources. Unpacking these habits, in order to get to their roots, is crucial for us to reprogram our minds.
What are some beliefs you hold and desire to rewrite, that are a result of the conditioning you’ve received? Drop them in the comments, if you feel comfortable sharing, or shoot me a DM. I want to get and keep these conversations going. We all need to know we are not alone in this!
Be an encourager. 💕 When you point out the good things in others you will begin to see more good things. 💖As you cheer up, lift up, and inspire others you will bless your life too. 🌼Notice the little things and the little things will add up to be big things.
