Taking Risks





Putting yourself out there is no small feat and takes courage.  People will ultimately judge you!  Every action we take someone will have an opinion about it.  You have to decide how important your message is and what you are wanting to express to the world.  By the same token, you must understand that there will always be at least one negative person trying to rain on your parade.  People have different opinions and everyone is entitled to theirs.  If you are worried about pleasing everyone all the time then you've lost connection to your message.   Stay focused on those that you have influenced in a positive way.  Receiving positive reinforcement is wonderful, but the true fire of why you will continue to show up, lies within you.  Getting a pat on the back is not why I continue to share information.  When I physically see a person's life change because they trusted me, that is enough validation for me.  Will each risk reap the same reward?  Definitely not.  If you are putting out a good message or sharing your passion (whatever that may be) chances are you are helping someone out there.   

Of course getting regular emails such as the one below doesn't hurt and keeps the fire burning higher.

I totally agree with you. Without taking risks there are no rewards! You gotta work hard and be willing to put in the time to achieve your goals! After giving myself the confidence I need I am now more successful. Also, I love your kettle bell workouts. They have helped with my lower back and legs. (it was really weak before.)
Love these words of encouragement! "Those who dare to fail miserably can achieve greatly." -John F. Kennedy

Your content is always so great-- keep it coming!

I totally agree. Dealing with cynics and rejection can be tough. You always need to watch your external language. That voice inside you that says you can't do something. Cynics fuel the fire for that voice. Control the voice and nothing is impossible.

What Doctor's don't tell you after a C-section

I have now been through 2 C-sections since writing this blog post and thankfully I've recovered beautifully from both with the appropriate progressions. For those who are new and are just finding me. WELCOME! First let me say I did NOT want a C-section. I did everything in my power to avoid the first and even the second. I'm a kettlebell fitness strength and conditioning coach who relies on her body to share, teach, educate, and I was under the impression that having to give birth via C-section would and could destroy my body and career. Boy was I wrong! If you're feeing the same way, start by reading this article I wrote many years ago that still applies today! Many people have asked and here is part of my experience.  I don't claim to be a medical expert but not only have I successfully healed my C-section, my abdominals are no longer numb, and I've successfully helped others who've had multiple C-sections (even some 20 years ago) find their core aga

5 Year Blog Anniversary and Giveaway

My blog was born March 10th of 2007, 5 years ago, with this  post  that started it all.  It all started 6 weeks after giving birth to my first baby.  The purpose of this blog was to share my journey of embarking as a new mother recovering from a C-section, lost strength, and fitness.  I wanted to share my struggles and perseverance in getting back to my pre-pregnancy self all while enjoying my new road in to motherhood.  I felt this was an easy and convenient way for friends and family that live all over the world, to see photos of my children and updates about our life.  What an amazing experience it  has been for me.  I never thought blogging my experiences would turn in to so much more.  Through my blogging I got the chance to connect with so many wonderful people around the world.  I never fully understood how powerful the stories would effect so many people.   It's truly been an honor.  Being able to continue to drive motivation and hope in to someones life by sharing my life
