#transformationtuesday here’s a me left side( November 2017) vs. me( February 2019 ). You might say that my body has changed a lot. But my mindset changed 5 times more. And really it’s more than that.
Looking in the eyes of myself a bit over 1 year ago i can remember how i used to feel. The only thing i was confident about was my finances. I knew i was financially safe. But that was not even close to enough. I can remember being 100% sure that i had some kind of disease, i was always tired, heavy breathing, always stressed, lots of headache 🤕 but whenever i would go and see a doctor everything was ok. They would tell me one thing. You need to relax, you need to relax. But nobody told me what to do.
That’s when i decided that i was the only responsible for myself so i’ve started to read a lot about nutrition and how our body works. I’ve started to eat healthy and exercise and that was a good start but it was still not enough, the next thing i’ve started to read about was how out brain works and that helped me a lot. All of this experience took me to who i am today.
I can indeed say that i feel like a Superhuman 🦸♂️ comparing to that guy 1 year ago.
That’s also one of the reasons i’ve decided to start studying to become a integrative nutrition health coach, because i know in order to change your life it takes more that just food or exercise.
What I’m continually learning, continually reminding myself of is that it’s not about being perfect, but about doing, giving, and sharing all that you are with the world. It’s not about being a flawless, shiny person, but spreading your light, however dull or bright or flickering it may be, in the most authentic way you can.
Because at the end of the day we’re all searching—for meaning, for closure, for acceptance, for peace. We’re all fighting to be understood and accepted. We’re all trying to navigate the craziness of our lives and the lives around us. We’re all striving for perfection, in whatever way that manifests itself in our lives.
But maybe it doesn’t matter as much how we see this ‘ideal’ but how we choose to be in the pursuit of it.
We all want something good, but maybe it’s not about striving to be perfect, but striving to be authentic. It’s not about having or gaining all the right things, but being and becoming our true selves. #beyou
NINE years ago today I closed on my second (final?) property. With its huge windows covered in plastic vertical blinds, original hardwoods covered in gross old carpet and a yard that needed some serious TLC I saw the beauty and potential buried inside, as I always try to do w/ anything. It will forever be a grand work in progress, and so much blood, sweat, tears and cash goes into it and it’s certainly not easy solo, but it is a proud accomplishment and a great love. Always striving to make it better, more eco-friendly and my own oasis. This year - solar panels and a new fence (and a clean roof)! This picture is from last spring, I think. ❤️🏠🏡❤️ #MyHumbleAbode#HouseLove#MCM#SEAlove#NESEA#CedarPark
