I was once told by a boss that I vomit sunshine. No joke! At the time I was a little thrown off by such a crazy notion. Huh, vomit sunshine? Do those two words even go together in the same sentence? And if so, how can that be such a bad thing? I guess it's the price I pay for being an optimist....such a burden label that is to wear. I'm not sure what it was in my life that made me this way but whatever it is is engraved into me like the tattoos on my skin. Maybe it was my parents teaching me at a young age to always be thankful of what I had and be considerate to those around me. Maybe it was my grandpa and all his silliness. Maybe it was the fact that I was born a leader, the oldest of all my siblings and I knew they were always watching me, looking up to me, and I had to show them I wasn't scared. Maybe God just put more sunshine in my belly? Whatever it is it makes me happy. I not only see the glass as half full but it's always overflowing with unlimited refills. I swear this is not an act! If anyone out there reading this blog knows me on a personal level then you can justify I really do just enjoy to smile! I don't stress like normal people stress, (it drives my husband batty) I really do believe in the motto that "Whatever's meant to be will" and the idea that "Things always work out in the long run." I don't know if it's fair or not that I am encoded this way but for me I don't know any other way to be. I consider it a gift and that gift I want to share with you. I want to help inspire you, motivate you, and make you smile along the way. This is a cruel world and if you're a weightlifter then it's even tougher. If you don't like my blog then don't read it. If I don't impress you then go find something else that does. I lift heavy, train hard, and still go home to be a mother to my princess. Still not impressed, then leave.....go far far away and never come back. Take your pick axe with you because this tree is standing strong. Stick around? I'll show you strong. I'll show you brave. I'll show you the bottom of my glass only after I throw this positive water on you. Surround yourself with greatness, surround yourself with the best, surround yourself with what you want to be. Dream the highest because with enough hardwork and determination anything is possible. You decide how your day is going to go from the moment you roll out of bed. If you stub your toe in the morning don't be pissed that it hurts, look down at it laugh because you just showed that wall who's boss! Today, go do something great! Hit a PR, help an old lady across the street, put a dollar in some homeless guy's jar. Go take over the world with your greatness! Smiles are contagious ya know!! Now go my fellow minions....go vomit sunshine!
