When will I compete next? I don’t know. 🤷🏻♀️ I’ve experienced a lot since I started in 2015 but I definitely need to learn and grow more before I decide to hit the stage again. Without any date in sight, it’s actually surprisingly refreshing. Experimenting, learning my body and enjoying my training is the goal for now 🙌🏽 kinda feel like I’m getting the hang of this balance thing 😏👍🏽
It’s amazing what can happen in just 1 year. Absolutely incredible. Aside from the big, but all the little things too. I thrive off progress and change & 23 you were full of it. What’s exciting though is the best is yet to come ✨🎉 #birthdayeve#letsgo24
If you guys have been following my story lately, you’ll know it’s been on my mind everyday.
We are all so full of potential & the opportunity that exists out there for us is endless; around every corner. It is trust, self-belief and confidence that will either make or break that potential. .
Although we may face challenges & quitting may be the easier option we will always have the choice to succumb or succeed. Both paths may be painful, but what will hurt more in the end? Exposing ourselves to vulnerability by facing those challenges head on or wasting our potential by giving in when we were only an arms reach away from the best moments of our life? Stuck with the regret of ‘If only’ #youdecide#foodforthought
Maybe the best goals aren’t found in the new ones we set but rather in old ones. Our hearts true desire, but our minds told us it was too big and we were too small, so we let it slip through our fingers. We let it go. Could this year be about chasing what we’ve always wanted & in the process, becoming the person we need to be for it? Of hearts opening & minds silencing- ‘If I am not big enough for you, watch me build my way to you until I am you and you are me’
Blood, sweat and YEARS.
Not where you wanna be yet? Neither am I. But to be honest, there is no end point really. You can always be better, stronger, smarter, wiser. And if there is one, what next? Settling? No way 🔥💜 #fireinmyheart#flame#heartracer
‘Be before you are and you will become’
What do you envision for your life?
It’s not a matter of if, but when & HOW. The more you tell yourself you are and act accordingly, before you know it, you WILL be.
Most importantly: what holds you back from getting there?
What’s mine? Me. I know this, but every day is my opportunity to work through that. We all face struggles, but it’s up to you to either overcome them and flourish or be defeated and perish.
Fire in my heart 🔥💜 #burnbright#allaboutthefire
Current condition vs 3 days out from waikatos ✌🏽still keeping some of the condition alive 😅
As much as I looove prep, sorry shreds but off season is a fun time and rn it's time to make me some gaaains 💪🏽 Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the work I put in, but I look at the girl on the right and see a starting point. I see room for improvement. I look at the girl on the left and I see opportunity. I've got that chance everyday ahead of me to make that happen because I choose so and damn that's so exciting. Fuelling that flame within 🔥💜 #allaboutthegains#2018lesgo#burnbright
I may be the girl full of fire who endured storms -ruthless in the pursuit of her goals but I am also human and I have struggled. One month post comp and tbh its been bloody hard 😓😩 My health and fitness goals are there, set in stone. I am passionate about them whole heartedly. But spending some time to reconnect with other passions of mine such as hiking and writing and using this as an outlet to help get my focus back has really helped me to be in sync with all of it. You may have noticed, I am quite the poet 😉🤓 My flame may be flickering but it will never die and this I have always said. The beauty of fire is that it grows from another flame, so when I feel like I can't burn for me, I'll do it for you and it'll make me stronger 🔥💜 #bringbackthefire#burnbrightremember#letsburntogether
Although I don't believe in motivation - I believe in passion, today I need to be my own motivation. A reminder to myself of what I can achieve, of what I want to achieve, of the person I am striving towards being every day. This journey isn't about how big the foot steps are that you take forward but rather the amount of little footsteps you take, consistently, consecutively which allows you to appreciate the sights along the way. Of the fact that maybe you will stand still for a while, scared to keep going because of what lies ahead. Maybe turn and run back, trip and fall, hurting yourself in the process. Its okay. So long as you dust yourself off and continue where you left off, no matter how hard the fall because before you know it, you'll be further than you've ever been and you'll never want to turn back 🔥💜#fireinmyheart#keepsmegoing
There wasn't a single day that passed where she didn't think back to the places she had been. Looking back with no regrets, she would never change a single thing. All paths lead somewhere & now she appreciates the way hers was paved. There is no way she would have ended up where she is today had it not been so. Darkness is no longer a fear of hers- not when it's familiar; a place she's spent some time. Not when she's stumbled through it blind, survived & found a flame within its depths. She thanks the darkness... For it saved her 🔥💜#innerflame#grateful#strength
