This morning I decided to take my workout outside. The sun was shining, the birds were singing and the air was crisp. I have never done my workout outside in my backyard since I started this journey, so I wasn't sure what made the idea pop into my head this morning.
Being outside during my workout made me feel a stronger connection to my faith this morning. All of the sights and sounds of my surroundings in my backyard made me extremely grateful for my life as it is today and the journey that has brought me here. I am truly blessed with a wonderful family, amazing friends, a home that I love (with the perfect backyard for a early morning workout 😉) and a strong faith that God has got everything under control that I want to change.
I had previously believed that my faith was strong for many years, but now I know that wasn't truly the case. You see, worry is the opposite of faith - and all I ever did was worry. Sadly my worries came mostly from how I felt about myself and how I believed others perceived me.
Truthfully, I never thought this health and fitness journey would bring me away from worry and towards my faith, but it has and I am beyond grateful for that. I have no doubt in my mind that God had control when this opportunity was presented to me.
When I started this journey I was hopeful, but I didn't have faith in it until about 2-3 months in. I knew that this lifestyle was not always going to be easy, but that it was possible and I would try my best each day to make it happen. Each day I got a little better at it. My progression was slow and steady, it didn't happen overnight.
The beauty of this slow progression is that I have enjoyed it and I have been able to see the small changes as huge gains. The small changes each day do add up to amazing results in the long run.
So today I challenge you to find your faith and let it propel you towards something you truly believe in, but may be intimidated by. Your faith will be what makes it possible.
Have a beautiful day! ☀️ #t25 #shaunt #alphaspeed1 .0 #livewithpurpose #allaccess #getstarted #makeroomforchange #changeyourlife #thisisyouryear #fitness #proveyourselfwrong #fitfuture
