Is what I want people to say about fitness, healthy, and personal/professional development. Whether it's for weight loss, weight maintaining, weight gain, peace of mind, clarity, social reasons, or fighting genes, fitness and health matter. Whether you're looking to start your own business, prepare yourself for your first job, find success in your current job, or you just need a boost to get through the work day, personal/professional development matters. It should never be a task, a burden, or something to get out of the way. Making yourself better should be something you always enjoy.
I have had a mixed relationship with fitness based on my moods and depressive state throughout the years. No more. It is everyday life, now, and forever. Regardless of the phase I was in, the most import thing for me was exercising because I loved what it provided for me, not just physically but also mentally. Realistically they go hand in hand. I spent twelve years going back and forth with different forms of fitness: calisthenics, weightlifting, resistance bands, and distance running. It took years to find my true balance. Previously it was pure escape from people and a way to transfer negative energy without exploding. Now it's love of life.
Personal/Professional development is something that we all should work on every day. Learning to create for yourself, making time for things that matter, and setting the tone to control your life brings freedom from roles and situations you may not want to deal with. How do you stay well-mannered in tense work situations? How do you work on fulfilling your desires day-to-day? The more you develop patience and an ability to think consciously and clearly, the more success you'll find everywhere you go.
I have surrounded myself with individuals who love all different avenues of fitness and development and who have joined the lifestyle for different reasons. I want to share our stories, but most importantly I want to create yours.
