Two years ago, I would have never written this blog post because I had no direction in my life. I didn't realize that I created my own happiness and that no one but me could create my future. I would have made excuses to not go on vacation and I would NEVER have posed in a bikini for the world to see. I was unhappy, stuck and hoping that life would change, but too scared to take a risk to make a change.
Today I'm different. I'm fearless, confident and in charge of my future. I live for the quiet and peaceful moments with my family and I'm not afraid to step way outside of my comfort zone because it is there that change takes place. I have passion and purpose and no longer worry about what people think of me because I love who I have become. I simply love being a Beachbody coach!
During our week in Paradise Island, our days were spent on the beautiful, white sandy beach watching Jackson enjoy the waves hit his feet while he passed the time digging his little toes in the sand. Cedric and I relaxed in the sun. It was so peaceful. I wanted to stop the clock and not let the moments pass. It was so genuinely special.
So happy in the sand!
Believe you can achieve whatever you want in life!
We had early morning wake up calls, but for good reason. When do I get the opportunity to workout on the beach with the top trainers followed up by a Shakeology breakfast? It was the perfectly written morning script for my life.

Each day I did things that I never dreamed I would do. I stepped way outside my comfort zone by riding down a a gigantic water slide appropriately called the "Leap of Faith" and did a photo shoot in a bikini! ME! Fear no longer controls me. It drives me.
I have made the best of friends in the last couple years. The types of friends that uplift me, support me, challenge me and believe in me. I am so grateful for my life and the gifts I've been given.

Getting to meet Tony Horton was a delight for my boys!
I had so many 'favorite' moments, but perhaps the most electric moment was the unexpected fireworks show on our last evening in Paradise. It was an electric and emotional moment. A culmination of the last year and a half of all the work I have put into being a coach. It's work that makes a difference. It's work that is not just changing my life, but so many other people I am fortunate to cross paths with every single day.
A Magical Moment
What it all comes down to is visualizing and then creating the life that you want and deserve. I love to help people and I love to lead others to an overall better quality of life by giving them the tools to live a more healthy lifestyle. I've been incredibly fortunate and wonderfully blessed in my life to have the most handsome and supportive husband along with two sweet boys. Jackson already has plans for our trip next year to Disney World and has made sure that big brother Keelan will join us next time!
Would you love to share this experience with me next year? Ask me how.
