Be Kind

We truly live in strange times. When you can say whatever hurtful thing you want without real punishment. I know thats not the case always. Some more famous individuals have been removed from this social experiment we call social media but thats not always the case. I also don’t want people removed. Im not for censorship Im an artist how could a creative person really be for that anyway? Im not discussing that topic though. Im just trying to figure out why some of us have gotten to a point where we are so cruel to each other. Its so messed up that artist have to deal with so much hate and negative comments! Im not speaking for myself Im pretty good at letting things go. I also have outlets to release my stress. I hit the gym and the studio for relaxation. Some people are not as strong as others though especially mentally. We need to remember that it is a real person behind those profile pictures. We don’t always know whats going on in their daily lives. So please remember to be kind. Be kind & Respectful.

Fitness is an investment!

Working out has many benefits. Strength, conditioning, stress relief etc. It’s also an investment. Think about the money you could be saving in the future and the stress you may be saving your family from. I look at my workout as an investment for my future health and wealth. I really am fighting to keep away from expensive hospital bills. My family struggled so much when I was growing up because of loved ones health issues. I refuse to let it happen to me or my wife. I know its not impossible to be healthy then all of sudden an issue comes up but I will do my best to prevent it. So keep pushing those weights they may save your life one day!

Stop the Distractions

These days we have so many distractions. The news, social media, movies, shows, etc. Once you understand this it’s pretty amazing how much you can actually achieve. The news is nothing but negativity. Im not saying that the issues aren’t important but if we were being honest we know the news doesn’t provide healthy dialogue. Thats achieved with your peers and family. The shows on tv are distracting you from your goals! I removed all streaming services a couple years ago and we are doing just fine. We are getting things done around the house. Such as making our own garden and improving the yard. We have more time to workout and stay in shape. We talk more with our kids and each other. The world is always going to be crazy and messed up. I prefer to focus on my goals and what I can control which is my own life. Once you focus on your goals and personal growth the world doesn’t seem so negative. Remember control what you can control! Thats your own life. Constantly worrying about stuff you see on the internet is toxic and just a plain waste of time! Have a blessed day!

Role Model

I have many reasons for working out and eating right. The most important reason is my family. I want to be the best version of myself for my wife & our children. They need me healthy and focused just as much as I need them. The focus is body positivity and being fit but I will always be motivated by my family. It’s so difficult staying motivated everyday. So I try to find different reasons daily. I look up health benefits of lifting weights and eating right. It’s good for your relationship with your partner for multiple reasons. It’s great for your children to see their parents active and healthy. It’s never too late to get up and get going! Have a blessed day everyone. Thank you for Following my blog!
