Turn Your Pain, Fears and Struggles Into Success

Turn Your Pain, Fears and Struggles Into Success

Since becoming a Nutrition and Fitness Coach in 2011 I have faced 3 major life changing and life altering events.
The death of my mother.
A very challenging, pivotal point in our marriage.
My brother was Lost at Sea.
With each of these events my life could have completely gone in a very adverse direction. I had found strength in helping other’s. It was the very thing that took my mind off the pain and grief. I believe because I made the decision to choose health, I handled each of these events in a way that shocked even myself. It was NOT easy, it is still NOT easy. I could have easily been in rehab by now.
When my brother died – I did not think I could go on – seriously, I wished so desperately that it had been me that was taken and not Eric. I had a few moments when I wanted to quit – to give everything up that I had worked so hard for in this business. And then I realized that I needed to continue. That helping other’s was going to be the one most important process in getting through the hardest time of my life. I had amazing support and still do from my husband, my aunties, my beautiful friends and my Beachbody family. But strength has to also come from within, not just from those that love and care for you.
So, I reached a huge goal today – One that I did not think was possible anymore on that tragic day of March 12 and the few weeks after. I put my grief to use – set higher goals – dreamed bigger – and followed through.
When you are faced with what seems like an impossible situation, when all hope is lost. Sit down and look around you – look at those who love you, who need you. Find your blessing because they are still there. Remember your reasons WHY you need to carry on – why you started in the first place. You will find that your reasons WHY just became clearer – and possibly stronger. Do not go in the opposite direction – do not go down the rabbit hole – choose the better way, the healthier way.
I believe we can all turn our tragic times into something good. I believe we can still succeed through the most difficult times. I believe that we can perhaps become bigger and better than we ever imagined through pain and suffering.
Find your strength within. If I can do it – so can you.
