I {bend} so I don’t {break}

Let’s be slightly melodramatic for a second, yeah? 😉

This shirt is one of the truthiest ones I own, because while this one might seem a little more geared towards yoga, fitness/wellness in general are what have kept me from breaking/breaking down, especially as I battled some rough seas the last few months – having a goal, an accountability group, the capability to get up and go to it, for my body… for my soul… for my mind… that saved me.

That saved me from spiraling too deep into what I was working through.

I can’t control a lot of things (if only I WAS the master puppeteer!)…

But I can control showing up every day.
I can control pressing play.
I can control increasing my weights.
I can control LETTING myself feel the movement, allowing it to stretch and strengthen me, and I can control allowing myself to feel like a badass after (because that’s what a powerful workout does for you!)

I know not everyone sees it this way, but for me, fitness heals. It gives me a safe, productive outlet with which to do what I gotta do to get through what I gotta get through.

I bend, I lift, I move and I stretch {{so I don’t break}}

Could YOU use some support and accountability? I got you! Let’s do it – I LIVE to help others!

Finally!

This is years and YEARS in the making… introducing, my new baby! 😍

I have wanted a Mac since I was a teenager (I’ll let you do that math!) In college, many of my fellow design students had them, and to say I was jealous…

But let’s be real… Macbook’s are NOT cheap. I could not justify the expense, not when I had credit card debt, and student loan debt to be paying off. Being smart financially is NOT always easy…

But I worked REALLY hard to pay my credit card debts off – and this was gonna be my treat to myself, especially because this would help me with everything, my business included.

I wasn’t YET ready to make the splurge… but then a couple of weeks ago, I accidentally kneeled on my current laptop, effectively shattering the screen into a million fragments, and rather than toss money to repair it when I was planning to get a new computer anyways… I made the jump!

Fun fact: when your new MacBook Air is scheduled to be delivered between 2-6 November, but instead comes super early on 30 October, while you have no power and can’t do a damn thing with it for 30 hours? NOT SUPER FUN, a little on the taunty side… 😉

And yes, I am IMMENSELY proud of how hard I have worked to pay down my debt, and purchase my computer in cash, completely paid for – the beautiful result of HARD WORK to build my business and make SMART financial decisions!

What is something you are working towards crossing off YOUR vision board?
