On yesterday’s post, I had some “Well you don’t understand” and “You just don’t get it” messages roll through..Really?
Left photo of me at 22 years old could have fed myself the “you are enough” and “self love” bullshit along with all the beer & fried food. The left photo was a young woman that was very unhappy, anxious & had been prescribed Paxil since the age of 14. I owned my first brick and mortar business at this time and had to put on a “I’ve got this shit” attitude everyday and let me tell you- that shit isn’t easy to do day after day. I would bury myself in my work to escape.
I continued to live in this state for 4 more years. That’s when I said enough is enough. My life made me sad, depressed and mad that I was allowing it to happen. It was a cycle of “I’m making a change today!” But I’d get sucked back into the vortex that was my own bullshit and lies to myself.
At 26 I got my shit together. Made life changes, started to feel more happy and free. Felt a sense of peace. Took control of my choices and quit allowing others to persuade or attempt to manipulate me into what they wanted me to think was my choice- but it was theirs... and I knew it.
At 28 I got serious in the gym, got my food in order, made it a mission to make better choices- guess what happened then? I became so damn happy, felt good about myself, knew that I was in the drivers seat of my life- no more bullshit, no more of living in a constant state of being unhappy.
The right photo is me at 37. I am more mentally tough with currently completing my third round of#75HARD, I am in control, I feel happy and proud of myself, I am fanatical about self development and learning new things, I am pushing myself everyday to be better than the last physically & mentally.
If you want to make the change, if you want to push yourself, if you are tired of the lies you have been feeding yourself- the best way to achieve all of that and to become mentally tough is to start#75HARDtoday. You will never be able to go back to being who you were before.
There is a beautiful world on the other side of hard work.
