“The best kind of people are the ones that come into your life, and make you see the sun where you once saw clouds. The people that believe in you so much, you start to believe in YOU too. The people that love you, simply for being YOU. The once in a lifetime kind of people.” I am more than confident when I say that our ray of sunshine, Summer, is one of those once in a lifetime kind of people. There truly will never be the right words to express just how much we admire, love, and cherish all she does, for every single one of us, on a daily basis. But we have to try. We have to dig deep. We have to look for the words that pull on our hearts and fill our eyes. Those are the type of words that describe Summer. The real ones, the raw ones. Because when you break it down, Summer is love. Summer has told me, on so many occasions, that if you love the world with everything you have, it will give it back to you. Summer, this is us, YOUR tribe, giving that love right back. I know that you didn't see this coming, but for this Women Crush Wednesday, we have all come together to shower you with love, positivity, good vibes, and probably a few tears. Read this and know that you are so very loved. Know that you have touched the lives of thousands. Take a mental picture of this moment. Be present. Feel the feels and know that YOU are truly one of those once in a lifetime people. To my dearest tribe…please, please, PLEASE share this post and write what Summer means to YOU! Share the moments of laughter. Share the moments of doubt. Share the moments of growth. Share the moments of love. Share it all! We love you Summer and ALL of us are wrapping you up in the biggest of hugs right now!
To the ultimate Women Crush, our #bossbabe, our ray of sunshine, our sweet, sweet Summer,
Hi there mama! This is your tribe speaking. The one that you have created, believed in since day one, and molded from your visions and your dreams. So first off, thank you. Thank you for being brave, for taking a risk, for trusting yourself. Without you, our lives and everything we know, simply would not be a reality. TORQUE started like anything, a dream. An image in your head. A “maybe one day” thought. But it surpassed that and not because of any magic potion, secret spell, or luck. It became a reality because of YOU. Summer, you are not only a huge dreamer, but also a huge doer with some kind of magical fountain of love and energy that never runs dry. (Melissa Kirk) And because of that, you have created a special space for people to go to feel good about themselves. A place where people can encourage each other. A place that is the definition of happiness. (Kristin Posner) But the most amazing thing is it goes beyond a business or a workout. This place that you have created it is more than that…it is you. The genuine, positive ‘vibe’ you have created for TORQUE is one that you carry with you wherever you go. It’s not something you ‘put on’ and ‘take off’ – it’s who you are and everything you stand for. (Kate Brewer) If you are siting here doubting that TORQUE is not the definition of you and that it is a collective effort, then take a look at your children, Parker and Avery. Your sweet, smart, and loving children are a DIRECT reflection of the way you live your life. (Heidi Sealy) They not only exude everyting you stand for, but they are following in their mama's footsteps and making this world a better place, one smile at a time. So know that you are, indeed, making an impact. Is this job easy? Absolutely not! Are you exhausted? More than us all. But would you have it any other way? Not a chance. We are incredibly blessed to have someone in our lives who motivates us, who believes in us, and who inspires us to always be the best version of ourselves. (Molly Corrigan)
Summer, you are the real-life superwoman. Not only are you admired as a fitness role model (I mean you are a little ball of energy on that stage! We can definitely tell that you are doing what you love! (Julie Bazar)) but also for you effervescent spirit. (Sam Mullarkey) And if that wasn't remarkable enough, you are the most amazing mother, sister, and best friend that anyone could ask for. You are there for you kids, you are there for your family, but most of all you are there for us. (Michelle Custred) You are able to balance both lives and never have you let the stress of either wear you down. (Brooke Whitten). You can do all things. You look fear in the face and rise to each and every challenge. You know that life does not come with a handbook and that we are faced with these things that just do not make sense. When these times occur, you assess the situation, think of plan, and then do your best to fix it. But you always go back to one thing. The only recipe to solve all the evils in the world and that is love. And THAT is what you teach. You have taught us how to love harder, how to trust fully, and most importantly, how to be happy. We wouldn’t be where we are today without you. (Aliki Torrence) Even during your toughest of days, you greet us with a smile on your face and go out of your way to make our day better. (Jess Colon) You treat everyone you meet with the same amount of respect, no matter what. (Jen Raneri) Seriously, no matter who you encounter you always make everyone feel welcomed, comfortable, and secure about the person they are. (Jill Hopkins) You encourage everyone around you to be the best versions of themselves. (Alicia Russella) You make everyone feel like a somebody. The fact that you believe in us gives us all so much confidence to do just that ... to be ourselves.(Christine Klemann) We can take off all the masks that we wear, we can break down the walls, we can take you to the parts of us that never seem to heal, we can be comfortable in our own skin around you because, we know that we can go to you for anything. (Brooke Kennedy) You are that friend who is there when we need a lending ear, a sounding board, some honest advice, a bright smile, a belly laugh, or those warm, life-changing hugs. (Jill Mantz) You are the busiest person we know, but if something is wrong, if we are having a bad day, if the tears are falling you will put down whatever it is that you are doing to focus and listen to all our worries. You just seem to know when something is wrong and you act on it. You make us a priority regardless of what is happening. (Mary Kate Mink) There are not many people in this world who we can rely on like we can rely on you. You show up every single day, you rise to every occasion, you give your heart to so many. Again, you're one of those once in a lifetime people.
Frankly, there just aren't enough words for you girl, but one thing for sure is that we would all be so lost without you. (Meghan DiMaio) I think it is pretty safe to say that our lives are better because you are in them. (Liz Tulig)Your mission to pass along good vibes never goes unnoticed and we can first handily say that your inspiring words go a long way. (Emily Breitman) You’re no doctor mama, but you are truly saving lives. (Caroline Menges) You are a second mother to us all. (Kylie Cabot) You are a role model that we all look up to. (Victoria Demedio) You are literally sunshine on earth. (Julie Acree) Summer, YOU.ARE.OUR.FAMILY. (Bryce Armor) So on the days where life doesn't make sense, when the world seems to be crashing down, when you feel like you're running out of steam, or when you question if what you’re doing is making an impact… read.this.. Know that this is just a fraction of what we all feel for you. There just aren't the words. Plain and simple. But we will spend each and every day showing you through our love and our actions just exactly what we feel. We love you. We are grateful for you. We cannot imagine life without you. And we are so beyond blessed to call you ours.
With everything we have and all the love in the world,
