My Dream

I’ve discovered the best way to actually let people understand you, is by being truly honest with them. Sometimes (oh who am I kidding?) MOST TIMES, on this blog I try to remain kind of “anonymous.” I’m afraid of having people who know me find out, because I’m afraid they’ll make fun of it. Not to my face of course, but behind my back. I’m too nice of a person to have people say it straight up like that! But I’ve realized that living in that fear isn’t getting me any closer to my dream. And because I haven’t shared my dream here before…here goes nothing!

My dream is to help empower women to feel their best and STOP judging themselves based on what media and this society calls beautiful. This is something I’ve internally struggled with for most of my life. I look back at high school and how I thought I was “fat.” Constantly trying to limit the food I ate—and then the same goes for college. Now, here at 25, I want to punch that young girl in the face. She was beautiful, and most importantly STRONG. The muscles I had were nothing to be ashamed of. Sure, my best friends had thinner thighs and wore a size 0 compared to my size 6…but was it really worth getting all bent out of shape over? I think I did a pretty good job of hiding my insecurities and portraying total self-confidence outward. I’ve always been very confident in who I am INTERNALLY, just not OUTWARDLY. I find flaws. I compare.  I’ve compared myself to every friend, relative and coworker under the sun at this point. And it’s truly never a comparison WORTH SHIT. Pardon my language, but really, I compare on outward things. I always forget that I’m nice, caring and sometimes I’m even funny. And that counts for a hell of a lot more than my weight. One day I got to thinking, if I’m thinking all of this... someone else has to be too! That’s what my college professors always said at least—“if you have a question, ask it! Someone else is probably wondering it too.” Anyway, fast forward to when I became a Team Beachbody Coach. I knew I was meant for more. I knew I was destined to reach women like me who struggled with acceptance. And so far, I think I’ve done a pretty good job. But pretty good isn’t enough anymore. 

My DREAM, like I said before is to empower women. And I mean A LOT of women. I just have to find those women. The ones who are sick and tired of beating themselves up; the ones who act cool and confident—but doubt themselves; the ones who are stuck in a rut; the ones who are on this crazy roller coaster of life and want more energy and time to enjoy it. I want them to know they’re not alone. You’re not forgotten and I CARE. I want to see you change…not just physically, but I want your confidence levels to rise, I want to see you start to believe in what’s possible for yourself again…and I want to see you become stronger inside and out!

Feels so good to type that all out. Feel free to reach out if you’re one of these women ready for a change!
