I am so happy that a bunch of you were excited about the POP Pilates certification! Honestly, it’s going to be so fun training y’all to be group fitness instructors. Literally one of the best jobs in the world! I mean, I wouldn’t be still doing it after 8 years if I didn’t ABSOLUTELY love it right?
Speaking about love…let’s talk about your own love for yourself for a sec.
Have you ever been told that you can’t do something? That you shouldn’t because you suck. Because you’re stupid. Too fat. Too weak. Too ugly?
It hurts me when I look back at what was told to me before. Especially when you’re a kid, you begin to believe what you’re told and then your confidence diminishes to nothingness.
So today I want to talk to you about this. NEVER STOP BELIEVING IN YOURSELF. Whoever tells you that you can’t do something is just PLAIN WRONG. YOU are the one in control of your life. You can’t control your environment or the people around you, but you can control how you react to it.
I followed my passion and it led me to this. To you guys. To Pilates and to fashion.
So for all you dreamers out there, keep dreaming but start DOING!
I want you to watch this video because it’s the first time I’ve ever talked about my struggles growing up and how I ended up pursuing my passion against my parent’s wishes. It was not easy. But it was worth it. The harsh times I went through made me the stronger person I am today. It molded me.
I get a little emotional during the video, so I am sorry! But I hope you can take something special away from this and continue to let NOTHING stand in your way.
