Obstacles in life shape who you are today.
Each experience gives us muscle memory on how to cope.
Over these last few years I personally feel each event in my life has helped build me to handle what life throws at me today.
As Leo’s birthday approaches, I know I should be full of excitement and joy, I genuinely am, but there’s a few layers.
I still shutter at the thought of a 55 hour labor, not knowing if he was alive and when I went to the NICU, I had to ask which one was mine. It still gets me.
But we both survived and out of the pain, is growth.
Just like how this pandemic has effected everyone, we will continue to feel what we are feeling for months and even years to come.
Optimism and belief are the ways I have been able to navigate the complexities that go into hard, traumatic events that happen in all of our lives.
Getting up each day with hope, that better days are ahead.
I know we are all resilient.
I see it each workout in our gym and on our virtual workouts.
We have all just navigated and are continuing to navigate some tough stuff.
I encourage to continue to have faith and hope that we will thrive despite the tough days ahead.
Leave your mark on this world, no time better than today.
And sweat a little, helps put some good endorphins in your body which is one of the best ways to feel a boost in mood and energy!
