Today’s WORD of the day was/is *Clarity*.

.

This may sound like complete hogwash to some but it was a God nod to me.

.

So I had a total Self-Care day! I feel so clear – refreshed – cleansed – calm. This is the FIRST TIME in NOT just 7.5months (wow it’s been that long postpartum already 😲) BUT add on the 40 weeks prior to that! So basically. The first time in a long time I’ve felt this refreshed.

.

My day didn’t start off this way though. Via was up multiple times through the night and her last time was 3-4:30am. Then with a 5:30am alarm *wake-up to workout*, I was dreading getting up and talking myself into staying in bed. BUT at that point I was wide awake so got up anyway. {Had FOMO of my fellow virtual fit fam sooo. up. I. got. even if I was in sloth mode.}

.

Today was my last day before back to my campus work routine. I’ve been on struggle bus – up and down – with the closing of my studio and routine change. I decided to just have an open mind and go with the flow today. Literally!

.

After dropping the kiddos off I headed out. I took a Warm Flow Yoga class. I just went by myself – for myself. It was some much needed *self-care, recharging, and cleansing*. While there I had a memory of another yoga experience and the instructor saying “set an intention this morning for yourself and your practice”. The word Clarity popped in my head. I’ve been praying and seeking clarity for a few things recently. I felt a sense of comfort with that word. Through my morning and afternoon I continued to have moments of clarity and comfort. With those moments feeling more and more calm and refreshed.

.

Like I started off. Some may eye roll or find this hogwashish…BUT…not me. I feel that when we pray and seek Gods support sometimes his answers and guidance comes in unexpected ways. We have to look and listen with our heart. It’s not a bright neon fluorescent sign blinking in our face.

.

Sooooo….seeking guidance – support – clarity? Sometimes it just takes a little self-love, open mind, and open heart. Find what recharges YOU. Don’t neglect yourself to long -PLUS When you give yourself some necessary self-care those around you can and will reap the benefits too 😍.

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!
