365 Days of Self Discovery: Day 108

12.19.18

Has anything changed your outlook on life?

  • Hard question to answer, because I go back and forth on my whole outlook on life, sometimes I find it a mystery, other days, I find it unfair and cruel & then I have days where life just seems wonderful and I can’t wait for the next adventure. I suppose having heard many people’s experiences within in their lives have shaped some of my views/outlooks — good and bad. Also, I believe these same things have helped me to go through life with an open mind & made me more cautious of the world  (whereas when we are young, we just live for the moment) now, I feel as though I have to live for the future (not knowing what will come of it but hoping for the best outcome). Sometimes I don’t always know what to make of life, and events change or might sway my decision or thoughts — I suppose the one important aspect of life that hasn’t changed is I believe life to be full of opportunities – and in order to seize those opportunities, we have to be willing to sometimes make certain sacrifices or remove ourselves from our comfort zone (s) & not every opportunity is a good one, but that’s something you have to learn to figure out (which opportunity will rewards and which will reap bad consequences). 

Have any of you changed your outlook on life? If so, why?

Hello! College graduate in exercise science and ACSM Certified Personal Trainer. My blog has all kinds of fun topics, something for everyone who is anyone that involves themselves with fitness. I like to think of fitness as a confidence booster, something to make us feel good and look good & pushes us to do things that make us feel more productive, unstoppable and stronger mentally and physically. My blog focuses on building people, and helping people see their true potential, while also sharing my journey with workouts, competing with powerlifting, and sharing how to's on workouts, so you step inside the gym with more knowledge. I don't know everything but I am on a voyage to build my character, my strength and work on my weaknesses --- with awesome people in my corner who support me and my goals. I plan on being your cheerleader, friend, coach and trainer all-in-one and most of all, I want to be your listener, the person who can listen and gain more knowledge about you and learn what makes fitness important to you; what's your why! (Your why will carry you to the finish line). It's important to have purpose for something, because you will need that purpose when you start to give up on yourself or want to quit. "Don't let the fire that guides you, dim" - Shay-lon Besides the fitness stuff, I reside in Ohio, love dogs and love pizza. Typical 26 year old trying to build an empire that brings out the best in others and makes me the best person I can be in all aspects in my life. Before I die, I want a reason to live, and I was given that reason each day I am able to wake up --- I have learned to not take life for granted and to explore as much as possible because to live with zero regrets would be fantastic! "I've conquered many things, but I still have much to learn about life, because nobody can know everything. & every battle is different" - Shay-lon
