Happy International surfing day. I look back and realize most of the great things in my life I have surfing to thank. I now get to share with my kids the same amazing experience that my Dad shared with me as a child. I still remember my first wave and I hope my kids will remember theirs. The ocean is something that will always inspire me and challenge me#experiences #family #adventure
Note to Self 📝: “Change is often a very scary thing and if you feel afraid about that new push in your life you’re being guided to take, but deep inside you know that it is the right one, then celebrate your fear, embrace it...it’s your indication of GROWTH. Change can be very exhausting, because you’re moving from your comfort zone to the unknown...you’re literally changing yourself. Trust synchronicity in your life. Nothing happens by chance.
Everything happens for a reason. Some things may not make sense for you right now, but soon it will and you will be able to see the bigger picture. Trust your own inner voice, don’t let the outside world influence your decisions, because at the end of the day no matter how loving and caring people around you are, they are not going to live your life.
You are the one who is going to live with the decisions you make today. No one knows how you feel inside better than you do. And while your family & friends may want the best for you and may try to protect you, that doesn’t mean they are always right and that doesn’t mean they know what’s better for you than you do. You have to trust yourself and your intuition. I know all this first hand, from my personal experience, and I can assure you that if I listened to all opinions and advice I received along the way, I wouldn’t be living my life’s purpose and I wouldn’t feel so free to do whatever it is I want to do.
Learning valuable lessons from others is important, but nothing is as important as learning how to trust yourself and your inner voice.” -Mindset of Greatness

For you dads out there have a great day.
Just a selfie next to a giant pile of trash. 🤗
Speaking of that bag of trash, we just recently moved.
Moving can take a ton of energy out of you. And if you’re like me I tend to get anxiety when everything isn’t exactly how I either planned or expected it to be. In the past I used to let my anxiety cripple me to a point of not wanting to workout and turning to my favorite and most easily accessible comfort; food. Not a great combo huh? I used to binge eat anytime I felt anxiety start to creep in. Had a bad day at work? Flaming hot Cheetos were there for me. Stressing about my future? Starbursts, gummy worms, and fried foods are my go to. But I NEVER felt good about it afterwards. I would eat until it hurt, so that way I had something else to focus on besides my current situation (whatever it happened to be). And you know what? It never helped. My anxiety was still there. Food was just a distraction. I abused it like a drug addict abuses their drug of choice. This may not reach a ton of people but it’s for someone right now who is reading this. When you binge eat you justify it in your mind. You say “well I’ve had a rough day, I deserve it.” But the truth is that your body deserves nutrients, hydration, and consistency. Constantly bombarding it with egregious amounts of junk food while it is attempting to figure shit out mentally and hormonally just makes the situation much worse. Now do I have my days where I give in and go on a small food binge? Yes. I’m human. It happens. But the key here is consistency. In the past binge eating was consistent in my life. Now I have chosen self discipline. I don’t let myself justify it every time I feel anxiety. It’s not easy every time, but I feel 100% better after the anxiety passes and I haven’t poisoned myself with a bunch of shitty processed foods. Keep sight of your goals, and remember why you started your journey. Its easy to give in to temporary pleasure, but is it beneficial to your current goals? •

“When it’s finally your turn, I hope you understand why the wait was necessary. The wait is not just the wait. It is a playground, preparation before the big show. The truth is that without necessary skills and experiences, we wouldn’t be able to get to a place called “your turn” or even if we would, we certainly wouldn’t know what to do and how to handle it. While we wait for certain blessings and our turn, we have to be grateful for the opportunity and do our best improving ourselves patiently, because everything always falls into place. There is perfect timing for everything and everyone. Never doubt, but work on yourself, keep the faith and stay ready. When it’s finally your turn, it will all make sense, and you will be proud of what you have become.”
It’s all about always GROWING to become the best version of yourself: spiritually, mentally, and physically.
