So everyone wants to be happy, everyone wants to live a happy life but what does that look like? We are always caught up in what happiness should look like instead of realizing that happiness lies from within.
When I was younger I was like most little girls I dreamed that one day I would be famous and I would have this perfect life, with the perfect husband and perfect kids and just perfect fairy tale story. As I got older I quickly realized that there is no such thing as perfection. I never knew while I was growing up that I would face weight problems, depression, separation, anxiety, disappointment, single motherhood. That was never part of the picture. As I have gone through these things I have learned what true happiness is and what it is not.
I realized that happiness is not what we think that our life should look like, happiness is accepting where we are now and enjoying the life that we have now.
Why all of this talk about Happiness?
So as I went through all of these points in my life I realized that the reason that I was experiencing the weight gain, the depression, the anxiety, the stress issues is because I was not HAPPY, I thought my life was an uttermost mess because this wasn’t the picture of what Happiness is suppose to look like. As I have learned each and everyday is that we Create our Happiness. The more that we create our Happiness on our own level the happier we are.
So stop dwelling on what your life is suppose to look like or how you are suppose to be and embrace who you are today, be happy of what you have gone through and where you are today. Because that is what Creates your Happiness.
How does this relate to fitness?
Well when you are unhappy you begin to stress, eat more, not eat at all, become less fit.
Stress= creates unhealthiness
Eating too much of bad foods= create unhealthiness
Not eating enough=create unhealthiness
Not engaging in physical activity= create unhealthines
Tired of that weight gain, well do something about it.
Tired of the depression and anxiety, do something about it.
Tired of not getting the results, do something about it.
Tired of not being happy, well stop and think why am I not happy.
We make the choice, we can choose to be happy or we can choose to live in the same state of being. Once we embrace and choose the happiness that is right in front of our faces the happier we will be, the healthier we will be, the more we will achieve the goals that we are setting out to achieve.
Strong mind + Strong Spirit= Strong Body
Enjoy the life you are living at this moment and time
With love and happiness,
