✨B E L I E V E - I N - YOURSELF ✨
Today I felt so strong. I have overcome some crazy obstacles over the last couple weeks to get here and I couldn’t be more proud of myself.
Even me saying I’m proud of myself is something that’s very new to me. I am usually very critical and pick apart every little thing I do. Today I felt proud.
You see, the reason I got here is I believed in myself. Specifically looking at physical fitness goals in the last couple weeks, today I completed a workout in my program with minimal breaks and no modifications. Two weeks ago I hardly made it through a workout. This is huge. In the past I would have just quit because I didn’t believe in myself.
I started one of the hardest semesters of my university career 3 weeks ago and I haven’t been extremely overwhelmed AND I’ve actually stayed on top of my readings. If you know me you know that I hardly do the readings, and I usually didn’t buy the textbook. Education classes don’t work that way, so I’ve applied myself more and worked a bit harder.
I’ve been starting to work on a side hustle that I’m going to share with you so so soon. I believe in myself, I see great things coming from this side hustle and I’m so excited.
Not to mention, I’m working on myself to set a good example for my future students. The second photo is to represent how I felt like a gym teacher today 😆 I had my peer teaching assignment with a friend today and I felt more natural teaching in the gym than I did in my first practicum. I’m excited that this upcoming practicum I’ll mostly be in the gym, and primarily with either high school or jr high students. I’m also excited to be open and honest about my journey and lead a physically active lifestyle by example. I believe in myself, I want my students to believe in themselves too.
Today I feel proud and strong. I hope these feelings continue into the future. I’m going to keep believing in myself and applying myself where necessary. I’m going to keep this routine because it’s been so beneficial to my mental health. I’m very grateful for all of the above and for my effort in the last couple of weeks. I’m also very grateful for all of your support! ❤️
