i'm free (x's 2)



as of 20 minutes ago, my online defensive driving class is done. WHOOP.  i was falling asleep and nodding off all through those last few chapters and videos but as soon as i passed my test i woke up. :lol:  that's how it goes. in fact i'm so wired it's over that  i'm listening to my boys snore and blogging after midnight which never happens. there is always a reason i am randomly inspired to write though, always.

i have a secret.


it's always been that way. however, i don't want a cookie-cutter, sunshine, bubbles, infinite happiness all-day-every-day, boring blog. that's not life and that's not real.  people are inspired and blessed through experiences and  there are several things that have happened to me along my competition and fitness journey in general  that the Lord wants me to SHARE.  so i will.   and whatever else He puts on my heart to type.  post by post, it's coming.

 happy friday and remember this:


learning to love yourself regardless of your current stage/size is one of the most crucial and beneficial gifts that a person can give themselves.  it's also one of the most difficult tasks for a person to conquer wholeheartedly.  improving yourself physically is great and can do wonders for your self-esteem and confidence, but it shouldn't define who you are.  your character and how you treat people will always trump any physical characteristic.
