Happy Monday to our wonderful A&C community!
Today I have a short and sweet Amazed Moment for ya! <3
I’m starting to truly BELIEVE that anything we want for ourselves is possible. I believe that if we REALLY want something and we COMMIT to it, it will happen for us (patience is another piece of the puzzle hehe). I also believe that our dreams can, and do come true.
I have two examples:
1) Health and Fitness Goals: Maybe you’re like me and you’ve tried a million things to meet your health goals. If you ARE like me, it gets a bit frustrating, when you don’t see results from your hard work. However, I think i’ve come to realize what i’ve struggled with for so long! I historically would try things (“diets”, workouts plans or new gyms) for about a month tops, and if I didn’t notice the results I hoped for, I’d try something else.
However, in January 2019 I decided that I was going to COMMIT to a three month program with health coach, JoJo. This program included 4-5 workouts a week, intermittent fasting, and recipes to follow daily.
I felt highly motivated in January, following the plan perfectly and feeling good about it. In Feb, It was harder due to vacation, a million birthdays, and my impatience for “results”. I had some ups and downs, but recommitted to myself, and came out strong. In March, my motivation returned in full force and I worked so hard. And guess what?! The results are amazing. Not only have a shed a few pounds, and gained new muscles, I have developed habits that I genuinely LOVE and will stick with. Patience is key people!!! Additionally, I cannot stress how important it is to be gentle with yourself through the process- try it! Ps. If you are interested in health coaching with JoJo, send me a DM to @saraabucks to chat!
2) Dreams CAN and DO come true: As a little girl I dreamed of going to Hawaii ever since watching Lilo and Stitch. I remember being so in love with the soundtrack, and making up dances with my sister in our hula skirts. As I grew up, that dream faded a little bit., as I was working hard in school, with financial and career goals to focus on. In January, Michael and I found this awesome deal to Hawaii and booked it spontaneously. It wasn’t until a few weeks later, that this really sunk in, and I remembered my dream as a little girl. O.M.G I AM GOING TO HAWAII!!!! Basically what I’’m saying is that we need to sometimes sit back, and realize how far we’ve come. Friends, your dreams will come true, I promise!
So this week, see what you can COMMIT TO and where you can be more patient with yourself, while at the same time taking a moment to be proud of how far you’ve come! <3
