One particular day, about 7-8 years ago, there were some wise words that were spoken to me that have forever been stored in my mind.
I was interning in a guidance counselor office and had my ‘end of my internship’ meeting with my course/intern supervisor at her office.
I don’t recall everything we spoke of that day but I remember expressing my concern about kids taken my advice, concerning choices they make, and my impact on them etc.
As we finished up our meeting her words have stuck to me like glue! They have stayed with me through these years and they truly apply to everyone and just about every situation.
Her words went something like this:
“…Just remember, you are planting seeds. Each child is a seed. Each thought and suggestion is a seed. You may have come into that child’s life and no matter what you do or say, whether you see change, or the results YOU were hoping for, whether they come and stay for awhile or go, YOU have been part of their growth …you can’t see it now but they’ll grow into trees. So just keep planting seeds and 10 years from now…your nurturing may have helped them grow into who they are. Plant the seeds within them, water, nurture, and let them grow!”
In time I realized this doesn’t just apply to kids. This applies to everyone, everything, everywhere! I try to live day by day keeping this in mind with my words and actions! So I pass on these wise words for you to think about and apply yourself 😉☺️😍🌱🌲🌳🌴. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

I am 35 yrs. old -a Wife and Mother to a Beautiful Boy and my Rainbow Baby Girl. I am a dance and fitness instructor. I own a fitness studio where I offer a variety of fitness classes in the evenings. I recently have become a FULL TIME Fitness Coach after 3+ years of working as a Day Care Assistant after having my Son and leaving my Emotionally Taxing Case Management Position. Fitness is my passion! I love to work out on my own AND with others! Throughout my both of my pregnancies I continued to work out on my own and with Beachbody programs, live my dream of being a work from home mom (for most of the day), and teach at my studio (and other locations) in the evening. After the birth of my son I have worked hard to get my pre-preg. body back. Shaun T's T25 was initial program and then Tony's P90X3 BOTH which I loved the short affective times because with having a newborn baby that was EXACTLY what I needed. I know and understand the self discipline it takes to achieve your desired goals and I am still on that path and have my struggles as everyone else does! I love to offer my support to my clientele with group fitness classes I offer in my community and I feel we work as a team all together to HELP each other. I LOVE offering my support via the web too as I REACH other people that I can't physically see. IT IS AMAZINGLY rewarding and I can't imagine NOT doing what I do! Im currently on my postpartum journey once again and so GRATEFUL and BLESSED to live this healthy lifestyle, lead by example for my family, and support others on their journey too!
