The following quote was sent to me from a best friend this weekend:
We need to prepare ourselves daily to know the Word and speak the Word when the enemy is trying to bring us down when we are up! We must use Gods word to fight against that. We are not perfect. We have to be able to forgive ourselves and others because otherwise God won’t be able to fully use us for His glory.”
I did a lot of praying over the weekend.
I prayed for others and I prayed for myself.
I also doubted myself this weekend – in more ways than one.
My confidence plummeted and I questioned a lot of things about myself.
But, through prayer, I was able to over come this.
No, I’m not perfect, but I’m doing what I enjoy. I’m trying my best, being the best I can be, and definitely learning more and more every day.
I’m in a very good place in my life right now. I wake up with a positive outlook on life, everything it has to offer, and am truly excited for everything that comes my way.
Since I am in such a good place right now, I don’t need others bringing me down, I don’t deserve it. No one deserves it.
Therefore, I will continue to focus on me which means being positive, excited for life, doing what I enjoy and what keeps me happy because that leads to me being the best me I can be.
On the weekend I announced that I squatted 185 lbs. for six reps. I was very excited about my accomplishment, but the news I shared resulted in much rage within many people and throughout the blog world and, for that, I am sorry.
I am sorry for the frustration I caused you.
I do not like being called a “liar”, because I am not. To clarify, when I squat I do not squat “ass to the grass”. Instead, I squat just below parallel. This is the form my personal trainer has me perform, it makes me happy, so I will continue doing squats my way.
We all have a choice of how we want to train. The way I train makes me happy, but if it’s not your style then ignore it, move on, and do what you love.
I know by having a blog I am putting myself out there for the world to see, but it’s not fair to call someone a “liar” or tell me that I have “chicken legs”.
I wouldn’t say anything nasty about you, so please don’t say anything nasty about me.
