Happy Monday yall! We are a community of positivity and we support and encourage. Negativity has no place here.
I was a little MIA this weekend but even though big love for y’all it was a weekend filled with projects, family time, much needed down time with the hubs, and of course some Jesus! And even though Monday rolls around way too soon and we are back to our lives in separate states, it’s moments like this weekend that keep us humble.
Took a different run today and didn’t even know where I would end up but I just set out (hoping I wouldn’t get too far away from home) and enjoyed this beautiful day.
Negativity Has No Place
Lots of thoughts get examined when I’m out on my run. One that stayed with me was the message my friend @garage.gym.life had to say over the weekend. I actually saw it through another’s page and instantly fired away hell for leather thinking something negative was said directly to this person. Long story short, some comments were left somewhere along the way and @garage.gym.life threw up the foul flag and shut it down. Now, if you don’t know by now, negativity has no place in one’s life and especially when someone else tries to put it there. Lots of people need to learn the difference between being a coach and a critic. I am always open to someone’s suggestion or education about something I may be doing wrong. I have never had a coach or a trainer and a lot of what I do has been because of the support and or advice from my IG fitness platform. Yea, these negative things could be dismissed as “haters gonna hate” but y’all I’m 40 soon to be 41 and those words just don’t sound right coming out of my mouth.
What I will share is that just like the majority (if not all) of my IG fitness squad won’t stand for negativity, neither will I. Oh, and we probably not gonna get into a word war with anyone either. So whether it is “bless your heart” “peace and love” or a big delete and block, do what you need to do to stand up for what’s right. We are not all gonna agree but just because you don’t doesn’t give you a pass to be a jerk. Okay, stepping down now. Enough said, moving on. So if you’re at the end of this and rolling your eyes, well then smile because of my goofy post run selfie!
