As you all know, I have been a bit obsessed with #SUPERPOWERS. This journey started at different facets of my life. Like many of us, each obstacle simply makes us stronger and more aware. In 1988, at the brink of my fitness career, I broke my back in a car accident. Actually I cracked one vertebra and compressed two, leaving me 2 inches shorter, and for this vertically challenged girl, that was a lot! I had 2 choices, wallow in self-pity or make the best of it. I chose the latter, and my new-found expertise for back strengthening and care was born.
Later on in 2005 my pelvic floor took a nose dive, I had no idea where this came from, but now in retrospect I am sure my back injury and life itself just made it all collapse. From 2006 to 2016, I gave birth to 2 amazing kids and was challenged with 5 surgeries and multiple alternative treatments to reignite those muscles and place everything back where it belonged. Once again I was left with choices, and once again I chose to use these challenges to strengthen my knowledge of female health and female empowerment.
And now in 2018 I am 8 months post divorce and 4 months post the death of the most amazing man in my life, my dad. These challenges showed me how important self care really is, who truly has your back, and how anything is possible with the right intention and focus.
They say that vulnerability empowers us and so here is where my SuperPower journey evolved. We are all blessed with so many amazing gifts, but life distracts us from even recognizing our true potential. For whatever reason, we become blinded with other peoples perceptions of ourselves, and we begin to believe them.
Only YOU know who you are, your likes, dislikes, and so much more. Every day, I deal with so many individuals looking to change their health and well-being and everyday I look into many of their eyes, to see a person struggling to be so much to so many, without recognizing that the first person they need to cater to is themselves. My first objective is to coach them to find themselves.
Your SuperPowers come from your amazing gifts, actually they really start to shine and flourish once you recognize those gifts and nurture them. Sometimes we got it, we know where we are and where we are going, without any credence to naysayers and passerbys. But for many others we are living for everyone but ourselves and that is where the health challenges start to come up.
You control your health and well-being, and that also includes your weight. We hide in our food and lack of motivation because we are unsettled in our current skin because we are stuck being that person that so many think we are. Today I want you to take a moment and write down those things that inspire you, give you a "happy high" or simply ignite your energy centers. Post it someplace that you can see it every day, and make yourself a pledge to do something specifically for YOU each and every day. When you hit a bump in the road, remember you have choices and take the best choice that gives you the most fulfillment and I promise it will show you a whole new light.... Your SuperPowers are yours, and yours alone!
