For many years I had convinced myself that happiness and confidence come from conforming... .
If I can be what society has taught me that “happines” looks like then it is impossible for me to struggle and feel bad. If all my daily tasks are complete then life will be perfect and impossible for me to feel like an outsider. If I hide my diagnosis of bipolar it would eventually disappear. If I married the right guy then I will feel loved and worthy and that would fix everything. If I maintain the perfect body then I will be confident and be able to tackle anything life brings me.
However, I have realized happiness is not attained but awakened deep within our souls, it is rooted within us and we must dig deep to let it shine. It is ingrained in honesty and found in our truth. So live your truth, no matter what others might think or say; pretending to be someone your not or leaving a life to please others expectations will only cause more confusion and inevitably sadness.

Glòria, testimonio Fin de Año 2017: Hace justo 18 meses ya había estado en Marrakech, me había alojado en un hotel de 4 estrellas en las afueras de la Medina y había comprado los paquetes de las excursiones en el mismo hotel. Fueron justo 5 días al mes de agosto, y la percepción que me llevé fue de un viaje demasiado turístico y que había pagado el precio de las excursiones por encima de su valor real. Tampoco conocimos las costumbres y la gastronomía local, sino lo que más nos atraía a la vista y que pudiera ser atractivo al paladar. Volví del viaje con un sabor de Marruecos. Siempre había sido mi ilusión conocer el país y había llegado decepcionada. Debía quitarme esa espina ... así que quise volver, pero esta vez iría a pasar el fin de año, donde las temperaturas son de mejor llevar y un tipo de viaje a ser posible lejos de los estereotipos comerciales. Animé a un par de compañeros y por casualidades de la vida, nos apareció como una bendición Mónica, la que ha sido nuestra guía, compañera, amiga y que me ha hecho cambiar por completo la percepción de Marruecos.

One of the biggest mistakes someone can make is imitation. Of course it is flattering when someone asks you what type of training you do, or what your diet is like, or how you stay so motivated. But it is irresponsible to have someone built completely different from you to do what you do. Even worse is when people seek to emulate a celebrity or professional athlete. These people have a huge support team, money behind them and a singular focus for performance and/or aesthetics. I remember when I owned a Crossfit gym, people who wanted a stronger squat would just google “best squat program” and begin on “Smolov” a program designed for soviet strength athletes on tons of performance enhancing drugs. Against my words of wisdom many athletes ruined their backs and stalled their progress for years or even worse... a lifetime. I always say don’t ask me how I do it. Ask how you could do it. When I am taking on a new client now I am acutely aware of their goals, personality, lifestyle factors, training history and a multitude of other factors. It would be dangerous for me to tell someone to hit he gym 5x a week if they haven’t worked out in a decade. Or tell someone living off fast food to do intermittent fasting and Keto. While these people will sometimes achieve results in rapid fashion, they will quickly deteriorate back to where they started, or sometimes even worse. The problem is they followed a path not meant for them. For some people a few days of yoga or limiting yourself to 1 drink a day is enough to elicit incredible change. It is valuable to study world class performers and success stories. Learn valuable lessons from the journey of others and figure out how to structure your own epic story. It would be silly for me as a 38 year old fighter to adopt the training strategies of a 25 year old up and comer. Don’t copy someone else’s story. Write your own unique masterpiece!

Doodlin'. When you were a kid, did you doodle a lot? In class did you get in trouble for doodling? Did adults tell you it was distracting and if you kept doing it you would fail? Did you try and stop only to be even more distracted and fidgety? Did doodling help you concentrate, but no one understood that? You may have felt like you had to conform to some standard that just didnt work for you, and it made everything worse because you have a creative mind that doesnt stop. That was, and still is, me. I have to be doing something creative, or I cant concentrate. I doodled all through elementary, high school, and college. I got in trouble for it constantly. Trips to the principal were common. I was told I had to stop or I wouldnt amount to anything. That caused major problems for me on so many levels. But now I embrace my creativity and am a self employed artist. I can say screw you to all those adults who tried to kill my creativity. And now I tell my kids to express themselves creatively, and not to listen to anyone who tries to stop them from being creative. Doodle in class if it helps you concentrate and learn more. Screw the people who think you are just slacking off. They have no clue. Embrace your creativity and doodle the hell outta life 🤗💙✏🔥

In her interview with Amanda Knox for Broadly, @Tessholliday expresses that people will always have an issue with her being her most authentic self because she is “fat.” She has been getting a lot of flack for being a champion of #bodypositivity by men, who claim that she is marketing an unhealthy image and lifestyle. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions; however, it is a shame that women are being challenged for loving themselves as they are. You only get one life and we commend #tessholliday for not succumbing to life’s hardships and rising above the hate to live her best life and encourage other women to do the same. #womenencouragingwomen#EssenceofGist
