Little Eyes are Watching Us

I was wasting time on the Instagram today, like most of you do countless times everyday, and I came across a post I just had to share. I follow this athlete, someone I've honestly never heard of, but found her while scrolling through the "suggested" persons area. If you are a mom, please read: alphakilo
Anna's words are so inspiring to me, and she articulate exactly how I feel. 
"I didn’t hide the hard work, sacrifice and painful days, because that’s realistic of life. I knew that if I wanted to lead by example, then I would have to devote myself wholly to a life of self-discovery, discipline and remaining open to challenge and growth.

This is mine."This year is a growth year for me...I'm learning to be an adult (I know, this is something most people learn before they are 33, however, I haven't done a stellar job). This process of growth for me is insanely diffic…

Unmoveable Mountains

But it's not like at the drop of the ball and the countdown is over, things just instantly change, and life gets better. I still have my problems...I still have my fears, anxiety, depression, insecurities and failures lurking in the back of my mind. I can say though, that this year, I do feel different. I'm tired of putting up with the bullshit. I'm making this year about me for once.

I've been trying to do this in a few different is meditating. While I have little clue as to how to do this, I know that my mind is where it all begins. From maxing out my deadlift, to getting out of bed, to folding laundry (I literally do this only when its as if I'm going to be naked from no clothes), overcoming the mental struggle is the first battle!
