I want to challenge every woman to put her needs first and not feel guilty. When you take care of yourself and LOVE you, then everyone benefits. If you were to reflect, you would see that most men in our lives take care of their needs. They hang with their friends to have fun, go to the gym to release stress or just get away from the family, join a men’s sports league to feel challenged, go back to school to further their career and feel accomplished, etc. And Ladies, there is nothing wrong with this. We need to do the same and stop being angry at our men because they are taking responsibility for making themselves happy. We need to take responsibility in making ourselves happy. DO NOT depend on anyone else to determine your fate. Take the time EACH day to pray, meditate or just be still so that you can feel with your heart instead of your head.
Happiness for me is being fit and healthy, working on myself and towards goals that I have set for my life, loving my body as it is and not as it used to be when I was 20, and counting my blessings daily. I even got a tattoo on my wrist of the word “Blessed” so that I could be reminded that no matter what, I am truly blessed and to be thankful. I have two beautiful, healthy children and a thriving gym that is a safe haven for so many amazing, beautiful and strong women. What more could I ask for? Not even a man could give me the peace I feel today; I have everything I need.
