All About This Lately.

Short and sweet post today. I’ve been all about this lately. Learning to trust myself and my capabilities. To push past my doubts and test my limitations. To become FEARLESS. It’s definitely all a work in progress. But I am learning, finally…to trust my power.

I leave you with this quote today. Thank you, Mr. Roosevelt.

“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”

-Theodore Roosevelt

  1. Great quote!! To push past my doubts & test my limits, I actually entered the 2015 NYC Marathon sweepstakes! If by some miracle I get selected, you can bet I’ll be training/running my FIRST marathon next year! Two years ahead of my original plan… lol.

  2. If I had to pick one word to describe you it would be STRONG! You are obviously so determined and dedicated to your love of health and fitness and this just shows that you want to take it even one step further by pushing past your mental limitations as well. I love it!

  3. Thanks for the inspiration! Love NFL commercials. So inspiring and wow, I got goosebumps watching! An amazing man! My fave part was this:
    “Power is not just about going forward, its about not letting anything hold you back. You find it in yourself, you can go anywhere you want.”
    Truly amazing! I’m holding that quote near and dear to my heart!!! Excellent!! Thank so much for sharing!! I needed this!! xoxo

  4. Love that you included this quote- have you read the book Daring Greatly? One of my best friends is loving it and is actually making a DYI sign of block letters to hang in her apt that says Dare Greatly! Great life motto. 🙂
