Don’t have a cow, It’s not the end of the world!

Now that we know it’s really not the end of the world…THIS COULD BE THE NEW BEGINNING OF YOU. A whole new YOU! 2013 can be your best year ever if you choose to make it. It can be your best in fitness, nutrition, friendships, relationships, family, financial success but it’s up to you and how you choose maximize each and every second of the day that you were given. Time is your most valuable ‘ass’et and you should make it work for you

You do have the power to change your life where ever you are with whatever you have whether you believe me or not. If you don’t like you job or if you’ve always wanted to turn your passion into your dreams or step on stage for your very first fitness competition or change your relationships or change where you live or travel the world….there is nothing stopping you, only you.. If you are turning 40 this year and you are harboring a lot of anxiety and fear in what 40 will look like....go forth and embrace it! The best it yet to come!

Right now in this very moment is where you should be. Stop comparing yourself to others success for you don’t know the tough times and hardships others have faced to get where they are now. When an opportunity is presented to you, take it ! Take it and run WILD with it because you never know how perfect it could turn out to be. Stop making excuses for being better. Learn to turn fear into one of your best friends. Life is not about standing in the shadows, Life is about dancing in the rain and those moments when you push yourself so hard you can taste your tears of pain and joy. That’s where the real passion is and that’s what empowers and moves people.

My favorite quote is from Marian Williamson, “Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate, but that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?.....Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you……And, as we let our own light shine we consciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others .So get out there, shine your light and inspire those around you to do the same.

So with that said, I challenge you in 2013 to become a better version of yourself right here right now. There is no better time to start and no perfect circumstances then this moment. I am grateful and inspired by the women that Aphrodite interviews and one in particular, CEO of Tara Hunt,  has inspired me to choose a word and make it my theme for 2013. “Limitless” Because we really are and the only limits are the ones we put on ourselves.
