Work for it Wednesday – Keep Going

Yes, you see me show up.
You see me work for it.
If you pay attention, you also see me struggle. I’m transparent, I own my struggles, as they are part of my story and what gives me strength.

What you don’t see is the water breaks, the catch-my-breath breaks, the incredulous “you want me to do WHAT, Shaun?!” looks…

Yes, sometimes these add up to minutes… but 15 minutes of movement is better than 0 minutes.

So do what you gotta do. Take your breaks. Catch your breath. It’s all part of it…

But keep going. Pausing is NOT the same as stopping.

Thursday Thoughts – It takes STRENGTH to ask for help

She’s referring to depression, here. And she’s right! Talking to someone, asking for help, admitting you aren’t feeling happy or like yourself… NONE of these things are signs of weakness.

It takes a TREMENDOUS amount of strength to share what’s going on, to admit you aren’t happy and need help.

If YOU need someone to talk to, or just someone who will listen, I am always here. No judgment, just compassion and a friendly shoulder to lean on, because life is tough and we are all in this together.

You matter, your feelings matter, and your life matters 💕
