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’ve trained my whole life & the only time I start to see real changes in my physique are when I get serious about what I eat. For me usually that means eating more & most importantly making sure I’m getting in enough protein! Even if I don’t get anything else right that day I always make sure I get all my protein in. Every cell in the human body contains protein and you need it to repair cells & make new ones. It also uses it to make enzymes, hormones and other cool stuff your body needs to be healthy & kick donkey haha. One easy way I do that is I have a @sixstarpronutrition whey isolate protein shake, usually paired with some nuts or a slice of Ezekiel bread. It’s super easy, quick, you can have it for any meal & it’s packed with proteinnn 🙌🏼 So whatever you do, make sure you’re getting all your protein in #yourmom said 😆 #sixstarsponsor #momtheprotein

I’ve always prided myself on my ability to simply “push through” whatever I️ was going through but in all transparency, 2017 has been one of the hardest years yet. I️ have had many silent struggles that challenged me to find new ways of coping, processing, and healing instead of just pushing through. Although this year almost broke me (more than just my dang foot), it gave me reason to lean on my family and friends more than ever. I was able to enrich my life with love, support, and beautiful awareness that simply wasn’t at this depth before. I️ know the lessons of this year will become more clear as I️ continue to grow. I️ am a work in progress and believe I️ will always be bc I️ never want to stop growing, healing, and learning. I️ believe life is beautiful even when it kicks your ass for a whole year. For all of those out there having a hard time, know you’re not alone and you are worthy of finding your stride! #sitwithyourself #worthit #enrichyourlife #thistooshallpass 📸 @prestonsmithphotography
