I know some people may not want to hear this, but I’m going to say it anyways…. If it wasn’t for my struggles, I wouldn’t have my strength. God is always building you even when it feels like he’s breaking you. God broke me down this year and built me up stronger than ever before ….talk about Real Love? The scripture says, God will give you beauty for ashes. Ashes represent our dreams, our failures, our disappointments and our hurts. Here’s the key ?… You HAVE to let go of the ashes before you receive the beauty. If you won’t let go of the old, you CAN’T receive the new ??. #ChadyFit #HealTHYSelf

It doesn’t matter how old you are, or how wrong things have gone, there’s always potential for a better tomorrow. It’s not going to stay a certain way forever; IT CAN’T. Don’t get down in the misery of today that you forget to get excited for the future, and what you’re doing to make it a good one. A close friend and soul sister of mine always tells me, No problem- only solutions. She helps remind me that you have to keep the hope inside you alive, because nothing is so far gone that it cant be fixed, or grow into something new and better. In the meantime, life is passing you by. Find some good in your day and appreciate it in between all the wallowing, planning, and doing. You don’t want to miss out on months of your life because something bad happened and now that has become your entire focus. It could even be something as small as a walk with your dog, or the smell of fresh air blowing in through your window. EVERY DAY has something to enjoy, even for a moment….before we get back to going hard after our goals.?? ?@lydastudios #ChadyFit #HealTHYself #happyhumpday
I have come to realize that in life, we don’t always get what we want because we only pursue what we think we deserve. That’s why it’s crucial that we believe in ourselves and see ourselves as enough and worthy of the best things life has to offer. “Whether you think you can, or you think you can't, you're right.” ~Henry Ford #fbf with @charliecouch #chadyfit #HealTHYself #fitness #Fitspo
