“It is not often that a man can make opportunities for himself. But he can put himself in such shape that when or if the opportunities come he is ready.”― Theodore Roosevelt
This quote defines my life at this very moment. My life has been amazing this past couple weeks with so much opportunity that I am overly grateful and happy. Sometimes you may go through rough times, but it teaches you that anything can happen, anything can change and end, but its how you deal with change that determines how you will handle life. I haven’t been this happy in over a year and that is an honest statement. This past month or so I have planned so many new things and I’ve opened up my time and days to people and things that I never would have in the past…I feel that through difficult times, growth occurs and you can either run with it or against it but you always have a choice.
Let me start by saying the best news of the week, which is that I am going to be writing an article that prints on August 20th for NW Fitness Magazine! I am so excited and unsure of what I should write about. I meet the co-owner of the magazine on Monday and need to have a rough draft of my idea and article by then. I am nervous and excited and so many other emotions but over everything, I believe the Law of Attraction brought me to this…and I know this is only the beginning. I am passionate about this blog and I sent it to them and they were impressed. I know that the fact that I have been opening up my heart and time to fitness and this blog and new experiences is drawing in opportunity to go even further. I can’t wait.
This week also was filled with hanging with my friends, hiking again, and paddle boarding for my first time! I loved it; I think I might go again this weekend. I have no pictures from it because I didn’t want to drop my phone in the water haha. It was a blast and a great workout for my abs and basically everywhere else. Today I hiked Mount Si in North Bend here in Washington and it was amazing. Such a gorgeous day out, and I saw a snake, as well as hawks flying around at the top of the cliff. It’s been a great week and I can’t wait to do this magazine article! Remember to always be grateful and open to opportunities everyone!
Here are some pictures from the things I’ve been up to this week:
And here is a picture of me and my best friend Ashley on our way out to have some fun out in Greenlake last night. Its been such a great week and i hope everyone else is enjoying their summer as well:)
