Thankful for...

With Thanksgivng weekend coming to an end, I've had the chance to reflect on all the opportunities I've been blessed with this past year.

I never once thought any of what's happened to me in the past year would EVER happen to me. When I first started my fitness journey, I only had one intention in mind and that was to feel better about myself physically and mentally.

One of my most asked questions is how did I get noticed by brands and to be honest, I don't even know myself. I can't ever guide anyone who asks me this question in the right direction because I never did any of this to be noticed by anyone. I simply did this for myself and started sharing my journey on my social media channels to help motivate others because motivating others, helps keep me motivated. My only response is be YOU. Be true with yourself and genuine with what you like and do. Don't EVER do anything for the wrong reasons. No ones journey is alike, so even if I did know how this all happened, there would be no point in following the same steps I took. Create your own path and build up from there.

With that being said, I am so very thankful for all the companies that have believed in my journey and have given me the opportunity to work on special projects with them. Thank you to every single one of you who have been there along the way cheering me on to keep pushing harder each and every day.

You don't need a new year to start your own fitness journey. All you need is dedication and discipline and I guarantee you that you can start on a Tuesday, Friday, Sunday, any day!
