I figured some people would like to know that my dog and best friend Kevin passed away this week. I usually don't share sad news on social media, and yes while I am saddened by not being able to be with my great friend physically...I am grateful I had 9 years of kindness, love, and examples of what being a good soul is all about.

I created a podcast and posted it this morning, about being present in the moments before we realize it's too late. So if you want to be reminded on loving those in your life purposefully each day, every day with great enthusiasm, then go check out the Strong Within Daily Affirmation Podcast.

The full video montage is posted on my site too at www.strongwithin.com under the Podcast menu.

I am sending great energy your way friends...go out and be a blessing,
Chris

I Treat Others Better Than How They Want To Be Treated
.
“One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say.”
~Bryant H. McGill

There’s a saying of treat others how you want to be treated, but not all of us want to be treated well. It’s not because we shouldn’t be treated well but over time we have come to think we don’t deserve good things, we don’t think we are worthy enough, good enough, or perfect enough…and thus we think that we don’t deserve to be treated well.

So, I was thinking what if we skipped all the internal guilt, all the internal shame, all the internal longing for the impossible perfection and just chose to treat others better than they want to be treated? What if we stopped thinking about who deserved what, and we just began loving people and believing more in them than they believe in themselves?

I go a little more in depth in this on the podcast, so come join me today and let’s be Strong Within today.

I Am Constantly Fine Tuning My Life
.
“Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.” ~Henry David Thoreau

Being lost isn’t necessarily a bad thing. In our times of feeling lost it might just be a time to check up on our goals, to check up on our value alignment, and to really look at the direction we are heading. Life is not about making it to the end destination and sitting back thinking life is done…it will always be a fine-tuning process because there is something more for us to enjoy, something more for us to accomplish, and something more to become.

We are continually fine-tuning our life because we are growing and becoming better. Who we were in the past is not who we are…and that’s a beautiful thing. So why would we think we wouldn’t need to make minor adjustments and checkups periodically to keep us running optimally in our lives?

Check out the Strong Within Daily Affirmation Podcast to hear the best affirmation podcast on the planet…I am a little biased, but I know you will get something out of it. Come join me in becoming Strong Within.

World War II B 17 Bomber Aluminum Overcast tour Knoxville, TN June 23.

Pops wanted to go see it for his birthday and bro was in town, so we made it a boys day out. I usually don't go to things like this, but it was pretty cool and it was good hanging out with the fam.

It was huge but it was cramped inside. I'm amazed at how teams of people would be in there for hours working together. You have to have a lot of patience I bet.

I realized I have to get off the bike to take a semi unshky picture when teaching #spinclass

Picture 1-how I "try" to look when people are looking during class when I'm teaching. All smiles 😁.
.
Picture 2-how I really look and feel when I can sneak to the back of the class to get a breather. *see, I sweat from time to time*
.
I was asking in class if anyone needed any water and no one raised their hand... and I said "are you sure???" no hand rose.... and I said, "pleeeease, someone needs water..." I was teasing about how tired I was and someone needed to help give me a reason to get off the bike, but still no one would help me out. So I got off the bike anyways...to check people's form or something 😉 😂🤣😂🤣😂😉😉😉

Taking you on my evening walk. The wind was still, the humidity high, and the beauty of the world was on full display... sharing everything. Holding nothing back for another day... just being all that it is.  And I know for me how easy it is to miss the little things that mean everything... but not today... not today 😀🌍
