Truthbomb Tuesday – Quality not Quantity

Truthbomb coming at ya! 💣

I would, without a shred of doubt, rather have a limited number of years full of adventures as my authentic self, instead of countless years safe in the corner, or not being true to myself.

No question – I’m all about being true to who Y O U are, standing out and embracing all your quirks and flaws.

In a world where you can be anything, JUST BE YOU. The world doesn’t need anything or anybody else, the world needs •you• 💕

(Oh, and since my shirt is another truthbomb, you get a 2fer1 😊)

Truthbomb Tuesday – You Have To Start To Be Great

Some people say it’s easy.
Effortless.

I’m not one of those people. I’m here to keep it real. Anything else doesn’t feel authentic to me and we all know how I feel about THAT.

So no, it’s not easy. It takes a lot of effort.

But you were made to do hard things. You are stronger than you think and capable of accomplishing great things.

Just start – don’t overthink it, just do what you can and progress.

You have to start to be great, dont’cha know?

Truthbomb Tuesday – Practices Makes Awesome

Want the truth? Well, it IS Tuesday, so let’s #truthbomb, shall we?

TOO MANY of us (myself included at times – I’m human…) are way too quick to compare. To sell ourselves and our ability to improve short. To throw in the towel and chalk it up to “I just can’t do XYZ…”

BULLSHIT.

Maybe you can’t YET, but every single great in the world once couldn’t do what they excelled at either, or at the very least wasn’t AS awesome at it.

They focused. They put in the work. They showed up, they kept going. They practiced til they were awesome.

Why don’t WE do that? That’s how I see every workout, every round, every rep I do – practice that’s making me better. Making me stronger. Making me awesome.

Most of us don’t wake up and absolutely crush everything we set out to do (and yes, I know there are some exceptions to that rule, but that’s the key word – they are the EXCEPTION!)

If you want to be good at something, keep going till you are – giving up sure as eff won’t make you awesome at it!

PRACTICE makes AWESOME.

Real Talk – Diabetes Sucks

Okay, you want some real talk? Let’s do real talk! 😊

Diabetes fuckin’ sucks. I won’t even sugar coat it (because sugar is the devil, duhhhh), but it sucks. The second you think you got ish figured out, NOPE, you don’t; back to the guessing games you go!

And I KNOW, before anyone starts coming after me with pitchforks and “it could be so much worse…” stories, I know it could be worse. But any way you slice it, Diabetes still sucks.

It sucks to wake up to low blood sugars and feel out of sorts.
It sucks to continually have to stab your own fingers to draw blood to test.
It sucks to do your best and make no progress.

I could go on. Diabetes just sucks.

I will continue fighting, as I have been, but Diabetes sucks, and having been in the trenches for 8+ years now, I’m allowed to feel that way, and I’m allowed to feel frustrated, and I’m allowed to dislike feeling helpless. I’m NOT helpless, but sometimes it definitely feels that way, and I do a lot of things well, but helpless ain’t one of em.

And I realize this post is far from cheerful and upbeat, but life isn’t always sunshine and rainbows, and I am big on keeping it real.

Diabetes is TOUGH… but I’m tougher, watch

Truthbomb Tuesday – Uninspired

Time for a truthbomb!

One of the biggest excuses people give is “I’m too tired”, and I get it. Life is exhausting; I feel you there!

But I don’t think it’s a matter of being TIRED… I think it is more a case of being UNINSPIRED. When you truly want something, it fuels that fire inside of you – you feel jazzed to get to work on it, you draw energy and inspiration from taking action.

Don’t work 8 hours at a job and then go home and NOT work on your OWN goals… if you truly want to achieve these things, you will take at least one step every day towards them, no matter how big or small said steps are.
