Detoxing My Way Back to My True Self

"Take care of your body, it's the only place you have to live"

I’m going to let you in on a little secret… since I’ve been back from my summer in “Paradise” I have been so out of my routine and honestly not been feeling great about myself. My workouts aren’t the same, my eating habits are a little under par, and my skin… well, I’ve actually never seen my skin like this, it’s struggling, BAD. I blame the skin factor on everything else in my daily life that is out of whack, so I’m taking control over all aspects of my life and doing what I know to do to get myself back to feeling like my true self again. The good thing is, I do know how to do this for myself, after all, I coach people daily on living their best lives. Just goes to show, I’m human.

My Epic Love Story Has Already Been Written

"And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God with them."

1 John 4:16

I'm a hopeful person. I believe in big things, and I have big dreams of my future. But I've got to be honest, I'm not always the best at trust or keeping my thoughts focused on the hope that I truly believe we all deserve to give ourselves. Funny thing is, I actually trust others very easily, sometimes too much. Probably a weakness and a strength of mine. BUT I struggle with trusting God. Which is crazy to me, as He is the very core of my soul and my life, and everything I believe and all of the joys in my life point straight back to all that He has done for me and in me. What is up with this struggle?
