TORQUE tribe, you did it! Happy FRIYAY! It is just a matter of hours until everyone’s favorite part of the week….the weekend! This week was one for the books, honestly, what a week. But now that things are settling down, reality is sinking in, and things are going back to normal... it’s time to do a little recap of this crazy, fun-filled, history-making week. In Wednesday’s post, I talked about how life takes those crazy turns and that during those times it is so important to remind ourselves of just how beautifully blessed we are. This week taught me many things, but one thing really stood out. Life is about moments. Happy moments, sad moments, exciting moments, frustrating moments, all of the above. We have ONE shot at this thing called life. It doesn’t have to be perfect or pretty every second, in fact it won’t be most of the time. But there are those moments, where the world stands still for a second, and everything makes sense. We all know those moments, we all have felt them. And while sometimes they may seem so far away and so hard to feel, we need to be reminded that we are in control of our own destiny. I remember learning that lesson and I'm not even sure some days that I have a handle on it. It is hard, so unbelievably hard because sometimes we think things are out of our control or that they should have never happened in the first place. Maybe that is the case. Maybe we didn't decide that part of our story, but so what? We just settle? We throw in the towel? Nope. Not in this tribe. We have the choice, every single day, to shift our perspective, and to take another step towards a happy, healthy, abundant life. Isn’t that what we all want? To look around and see our loved ones genuinely happy. To belly laugh with our best friends late into the night. To hear those little giggles of your (not mine lol) mini me’s fill the air. To fuel not only our bodies, but our souls with what it needs to live a long life. But most importantly, to lay our heads down at night knowing we lived that day to the fullest. I know that THAT is the life I am striving to live. I think that if we all realize that life isn’t about the things, but rather the feels, than we are already halfway there. Together, hand in hand, ride by ride, pulse by pulse, plank by plank, we WILL strive to achieve those moments where it all makes sense. We’re going to start following our dreams, because we are capable of any and all things. We are going to keep our heads up, and our hearts strong, because together we are unstoppable. We are going to reach amazing heights by lifting each other up because in this tribe we celebrate everything and everyone. So TORQUE tribe, start this weekend off right. Tell the ones you love most, just how important they are. Do something that makes your heart skip a beat. Fuel your body with what it needs. Laugh until it hurts. String together all those precious moments life has given you and strive to create more. And before we know it, our lives will be full of healthy minds, beautiful souls, belly laughs, and full hearts.
I leave you with one last thought… you are the author of your own life, what will you write?
Sending love, good vibes, and all things beautiful your way, wherever you may be! Together we can achieve all things!
