Arise Champion

There is too many of us out here wondering lost, without direction and without any kind of love and appreciation for ourselves and other people. We think we are unsatisfied with life and are depressed but in reality we are unsatisfied with ourselves and our spirit is screaming for change. How do I know? Because I was one and in some aspects still am one of those people.

With that being said I think we all need to come back. Come back to ourselves, who we were born to be. Remember what our dreams are, remember what our goals are. What do we feel we need to improve on emotionally, spiritually and physically ? Let’s be more honest with ourselves then we have ever been. Take a long hard look at not just the positive things about ourselves but let’s face those demons as well. Sit with ourselves for awhile and listen.

You can allow yourself to feel whatever emotions that come up after sitting with yourself and then, ” Get the hell up and let’s go do what we need to do to get it done.” Each day trying harder than the last. It’s not about perfection it’s about persistence. If we keep putting off our dreams until tomorrow we are going to run out of today’s. I want everyone who is reading this to know that we really CAN change our lives. In the words of Les Brown..” Will it be easy? NO! Will it hurt? YES! Will it be worth it ? Absolutely! Nothing in life worth having comes easily is the old saying and it is true.

I find myself sick and damn tired of being sick and damn tired. Overwhelmed by the state of things in the world and in my sadness I make up excuses not to finish a painting or not to work out or I just find some reason not to do whatever it is that needs doing. I watch too much mind numbing movies and scroll through Instagram for too long, some times I eat too much bread and don’t drink enough water. I get caught up in the news and then I wonder why my anxiety gets worse, I don’t feel good about myself and I feel like a disaster. Is it just me or anyone else do the same thing?

A few weeks ago, I had a ” almost near death experience ” while we were swimming in the sea in Nardo and I had my goggles on and got caught up in the beauty of the under water world when I realized I had drifted too far out. I tried to get back to shore but the waves would push me forward and then pull me back. I would have drowned right then and there if my husband had not come and grabbed my foot to push me ashore. It sounds dramatic but in the moment I thought I was going to die, I realized I wasn’t ready to die yet. Even after all I have been through and even though I feel sometimes like the world is just falling apart I still have a purpose here and so do you.

This experience shook me and It woke me up to realizing I need to be in better shape physically 100% , I have a lot of things in life I still want to do and see with my husband and I can’t do these things if I am too out of shape, There’s so much I want to accomplish and I want to some how leave this world a better place in my own little way. I can’t do any of those things if I keep making excuses and not doing what I know I need to do. I have never allowed myself to be my best self. I don’t even know what that would feel like.

What I learned from my ” almost near death experience” was that I want to live the rest of my life like a Champion. I want all of us to live the rest of our lives like Champions. The Champions we were born to be before we let everyone and everything talk us out of our destiny. Before we decided that because something bad happened in our lives and we believed that’s all we can ever be. I want us to come back into our true selves and start to see what our true potential is.

I know some of us grew up without a mother or a father, some of us have been abused by others who had no right to abuse us, some of us have seen things in life that would make a grizzly old man cry. That sucked and its sad but now It’s time for us all to rise above those things. No one ever promised us an easy life! We are all capable of being Champions in our own way. Don’t you guys want to feel what this feels like? I know I do!

We know what failure feels like, we know what sad, sick and tired feels like. Now let’s feel what being a Champion feels like. Waking up in gratitude, doing the work out even when we don’t want to, going the extra mile every day in every thing we do. Taking care of ourselves so we can better take care of others. Making our mark on the world every day no matter how small in a positive way, breaking generational curses and living a blessed and unstoppable life.

I know all this sounds great but without action it’s just words. So I thought of a plan..what if we all did it together? We could share what we are doing each day to help us to accomplish our long term goals, what we do in our daily rituals for spiritual, emotional and physical growth and encourage each other to be the Champions we were born to be each and every day. We could call it the Champion Challenge! What do you guys think?

For example, I have started doing a morning walk to warm up my body while I listen to motivation speeches and or music. One of my favorite speeches is called Arise Champion it’s 4 minutes long on YouTube, it gives me goose bumps. I recommend it if you need a little pump up before your day gets started. Then I hop on the bike and ride for 45 minutes to an hour, I do a work out that includes crunches, squats and the regular stuff I have started back with some meditation and always start the day with gratitude saying thanks for another day. Some days I blog after I work out some days I paint but every day for the past 7 days I have did my best to hold myself accountable for my own destiny. This includes cutting down on the bread and making sure I drink plenty of water, doing my tasks that need to be done for my future goals and being subservient in some way to those around me each day. No more excuses!

Who all is interested in joining me on the Champion Challenge? We can share our rituals and our daily work outs and three things we have done daily to help us achieve our goals. We can do it for a month and share our progress with each other every day to keep each other motivated and accountable. If enough of you are interested I can do a little update each day and at the end of the month we can evaluate how we feel after doing the challenge and if we noticed any changes physically, spiritually and emotionally. What do you guys think?

If you are interested let me know in the comments below or email me and don’t forget to share what you’r goal is for this week. We will start the Champion Challenge tomorrow, no excuses! Wake up and face the day head on like the Champions we are, accomplish our goals each day working towards our dreams and be the best versions of our selves. Who’s with me?!!

Thank you for joining me today, please fell free to like, comment and subscribe. Until next time stay Inspired and blessed!

OMG AKA β˜ οΈπŸ’žπŸ₯³πŸ₯³βœ¨πŸ₯‡πŸ₯‡πŸ₯‡hell to the YES I am going to take part in the Champion Challenge ☺️ I have been looking for some motivation and you come with this article in the perfect time 😜. I have been lifting but I need to do some cardio exercises and get back to my podcast. Yes I have been in a serious slump for about a year and a half now. I think you are right about the feeling of sadness and depression being our spirit knows that we need change. We are built to grow and change every day and when we allow ourselves to stop we are in dis ease Wich then in turn causes us diseases. I loved this post AKA. Spectacular and so uplifting with your usual sass girl.

    • We are joining her too and I agree with her also. Dis ease comes from us not living up to our true potential and then we feel depressed and the cycle continues. Such a wise one she is lol.

  9. Looks like her almost near death experience has AKA shaken not stirred.lol lol πŸ˜‚πŸ˜† a little 007 reference for you. I’m with you all I will start my Champion Challenge tomorrow morning. Been a while since I have worked out and it’s been awhile since I have kept myself hydrated.lol it’s been a long while since I have sat with myself to face my demons and take some stock in myself. I agree with AKA it’s time for some changes. We can’t help others if we can’t first help ourselves. Any suggestions for meditation? The four minute Arise Champion video AKA suggested for motivation brought me to tears.lol
