Where to even begin...
✈️😭☀️👙😂🌴⛱☺️🌊🍹✌🏼 Note: Share the bad and challenging as much as you share the good and positive.
I never believed sharing what i am about to tell you was necessary because I was running and hiding from it. Trying to fix it and get rid of it and be the person that I thought everyone thought I was. So I didn't want to share something that I was pretending didn't exist.
So here it goes.
I have Anxiety. Sometimes it's crippling and my day ends as soon as it starts and sometimes it's somewhat manageable by taking breaks away from the thing I'm doing to regroup.
40 million adults in just the US alone have an anxiety disorder (notice I said HAVE and not suffer). So what makes me feel different or special? Nothing. I'm sharing this today because of a few things...
While getting ready to leave for Punta Cana I had a massive Panic Attack to the point where I wanted to cancel the trip. I knew all along I couldn't cancel the trip and I think that's what made it worse.
Due to the severity of this particular Panic Attack it lingered for 3 full days. I thought about changing flights. I called home and texted every chance I could. I thought about every possible scenario on how I could just get home.
Durning one of those days I spent some time going through the social media pages of some of the coaches I got to spend time with to just learn a little bit more about them. I felt like I was being so anti social and awkward and then worried they hated me so I needed something to stop the cycling thoughts. What i found out was the "trip saver". I learned that a few of them were or had also dealt with Anxiety. Now if that's not a sign then I don't know what is.
Something that was holding me back led me to try and distract myself just to find out I was surrounded with woman who actually knew what I was going through!
They have already publicly shared their stories and continue to do so and whether they know it or not they have inspired me to take it to that next step and share this part about me.
Life it too short. Everyone deserves happiness and freedom to do what their heart truly desires.
Thank you Beachbody and Thank you Punta Cana 😘
Excuse the bed head, but when you come back home after 5 days of vacationing in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic on an all expense paid, all-inclusive trip where you ate and drank everything in sight and your body is leaner than when you left, it makes you feel like you're winning at life! 👊
I didn't workout everyday I was away. I didn't drink my shakes every morning like I normally do and I didn't eat not one green vegetable the entire time.😱 And you know what, I don't feel guilty about it one bit.🤷♀️
Remember, life’s little pleasures fall in perfectly with a healthy lifestyle. Real life has parties, gatherings, and celebrations. Your life is not on hold. Learning to enjoy life’s little pleasures is part of the plan. It’s all about balance and the bigger picture. 😉
I had the best time ever with my girls!!👯👯
Always a reminder...Surround yourself with people that want more out of life. That won’t settle for average. People that you can connect with on a deeper level. Keep your circle fresh. Keep your circle full of quality rather than quantity. Full of cool ass humans that you can be yourself around. People that fill you up with nothing but love. People that want to see you succeed. People that GET IT and GET YOU.
Good circle, good life!✌️ #girlstrip
Peace out ✌🏼 Punta Cana it's been real.
This trip has been a complete learning experience. I'm thankful for the new faces I met and the old I got to re unite with.
Our team is full of introverts AND extroverts who evenly balance each other out and bring out the best in one another.
There's room for YOU too. 🤙🏼
