It Has Only Just Begun

27 Dec


I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday filled with a lot of love, laughter and joy =) Mine was simply amazing. I could not ask for a better 4 families to be a part of my life. I am truly one lucky girl.

I was sitting and reflecting on this exact thing and had a moment of, this is just the beginning. It’s the first Christmas, the first year of the relationship growing, there is so much more to come!

I know things will continue to change as I continue to grow, but I have the ability to determine whether they are changing for the better or not. I am relating now to my Crossfit life, but this really can go for anything and everything. I felt as if I was in a bit of a CF funk, I don’t really know why…or I didn’t. I think a lot of it is patience. With my knee being hurt and not able to go full force (which if you know me is really hard for me to do) I was just in a bit of a funk…I guess really I didn’t even notice or wasn’t letting myself notice until our drive home on Christmas Day. Little break down, talking it out, being honest with myself and boom there ya go-out of the funk. Sometimes all it takes is the one closest to you, who loves you the most, knows you better than you know yourself, to tell you how it is. Nine times out of ten, it’s our mindset. I kept saying, “I can feel that something is different but I don’t know why and I don’t know how to change it.” But I do.


You are what you think you are. You do what you think you can do.

It all circles around to the power of positive thinking.

I’m not big on New Year’s Resolution for a couple of reason. I think they are kind of stupid. I mean c’mon-you should want to make positive change in your life all the time, or whatever it is you are going to resolve to do in the New Year, is probably something you should have been doing already. Let’s be real.  BUT on the other hand, I do like to think about the New Year as new possibilities.


We all have this opportunity sitting in the palm of our hands, waiting for us to concur.

What will you do with that opportunity?

This past year, or two for that matter, has been so amazing. Everything just keeps getting better and better. Sometimes I have to pinch myself to make sure it’s all real. Jan 14th will be 1 year since I started competing in Crossfit. It excites me to imagine what year 2 or 3 or 4 will look like. I am just someone who wants it all NOW. But just like everything in life we must have patience.

Patience + Hard Work = SUCCESS

Don’t ever think, ‘this is it, this is as good as it’s going to get’. Because that is just not true. Every day can be a better day if you believe that to be true.

Your life is NOW.

Your opportunity is NOW.

The possibilities are endless.

It has only just begun.
