365 Days of Self Discovery: Your Past

Day 14

What has been the most difficult time of your life?

  • Well, I have many difficult times, no worse than anyone else I am sure, but still difficult nonetheless. I’d say one of the most was when I was financially defeated, I was broke, literally living paycheck to paycheck, in college and outside of college, I was behind on credit card bills and hardly making payments, hardly making rent, I had no savings account (it got closed because it had no money in it for an extended period of time), I was getting bank overdraft fees constantly, I was maxed out on my credit cards (very high limits) and my debit card would sometimes get declined, so getting groceries was scary.. I mean I thought I was hitting rock bottom but after a while, it took a lot of sacrifices, etc but I made it through finally. 

Do you have a difficult time in your life that stands out?

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

  1. I would say recently. I felt horrible from inside because of my health issues which luckily weren’t severe but they left my mental state in such a weak position. Though I would still add that even in this phase I found something special, that was how my faith in God grew and I came closer to the spiritual side, which everyone must experience.
