Saturday getting grounded with the right mindset

Another week ends and the promise of another rolls around; that’s my definition of the weekend. It’s that time when I think about all the things I needed to get done but didn’t,  all that I was able to accomplish from my long list of to-dos, and just trying to get grounded to seriously STOP procrastinating about that box of stuff I’ve been avoiding opening up!  Don’t act like you don’t have one too!

Hump Day and Fitness Motivation

As a fitness coach, I’m learning and growing into being my own boss with the powerful realization that the ONLY one qualified to put a value on who I am, my skills, abilities, and potential, IS ME! How liberating is that? Ha ha! As women, the “odds” are definitely not in our favor when it comes down to being fairly compensated for our talents and skills, hence the draw toward being our own bosses, etc. I know for me it was a combination of things; first came health issues due to work-related stress and poor nutrition and second, I just got tired of not getting fairly compensated and appreciated for my skills simply because of how the deck is stacked against women in the workplace in general. Other issues definitely came into play as well, but the bottom line is that there is nothing more rewarding than stepping out on faith and taking the plunge as the creator of YOUR own destiny! YAY! *cartwheels* These days I’m taking the time to reach out and make new friends and connections in order to share my journey to fitness and empowerment (yep, still a work in progress *giggles*) while opening the door to new experiences and life’s adventures.You can join in too…   Tonye Tariah Freedom At The Crossroads Founder Tonye Tariah, Holistic Health Strategist and founder of Freedom at The Crossroads Blog,...
