Dandelion💛 & Tenacity

Leave a comment

Want to know something crazy?! Sometimes I get DEEP with my thoughts and connections. {My husband usually rolls his eyes at me when I go off on my tangents 😆🤗😍 you may too BUT it’s ok…it means something to me…I see it. I feel it 💛}⠀


My Son picked this Dandelion when we were taking photos. This dandelion actually has a perfect representation within these photos!⠀


After looking at these photos I had an emotional pull to search about dandelions his morning. As I was reading about the them I came across this excerpt. ⠀


“Most modern admirers consider it a symbol of fighting through the challenges of life and emerging victorious on the other side. Others use it as a visual reminder of the sun’s power, especially when depression or grief makes it hard to stay sunny. Of course, there is a long running folk belief that blowing out the white puffball of seeds that the flowers turns into will grant you one wish. Others use it as a reminder to use intelligence in dealing with every kind of situation. Finally, most people agree that the Dandelion looks so cheerful and happy, even when it is taking over a sidewalk or shading out grass in a lawn.”⠀


It’s a full representation of me, of us, my journey!From my loss and depression with my miscarriage…to my fear and worry through my pregnancy…to my prayers and “wishes” being answered. To the gratitude and happiness I have now with my babes. I have a word that comes to me often when I’m feeling a bit down, stuck, or whatnot. Tenacity. This little “weed/flower” literally brought tears to my eyes this morning! Through and through, no matter what, these pesky weeds to most, BUT A FLOWER to a child, are tenacious. ⠀


(I looked back at last years photos and he gave me a dandelion then too. It truly represents a full circle moment 💛. )

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!
