A little about me…
Well, this blog is one of my “bucket list” things, and for some reason it’s more frightening than standing on stage in a bikini and heels. (I’ll get to that). Why is it so scary? I grew up not knowing how to read or spell. When I was in the 5th grade they told my parents I had a learning disability, but didn’t know how to teach me. I don’t blame any teachers or my family for my learning issues. I think I was to young to know HOW I was able to learn. I was really good at taking test. I always knew the stuff but I was unable to commucate what I knew because I didn’t know how to write it down. I went through the rest of my school years as an average student. It wasn’t until college when I realized why I was so good at taking test.
I learned that I did know words that someone told me or read to me, we’ll use the word “ten” for this explain. I was able to remember what “ten” sounded like, so when I saw bigger words with the word “ten” in it I knew what that part sounded like and would then piece the rest of the word together from the rest of the sentence. I could use the word “Sentence” but because I am a personal trainer I will use “extension”. I knew what “ex” sounded like, and I had seen “sion” before, so they all come together! You can image how long it took me to study for Human Anatomy and Physiology I and II. ha 🙂
After learning HOW I able to learn, things got a lot easier. I graduated college with a 3.3 GPA with a double major and a minor. I still make a lot of mistakes when I type, spell, and as you can already tell some grammar things. But for the past two years I have wanted to build a blog and website that I would be able to share my life with people more than I through Facebook and Instagram.
As I said above I am a Personal Trainer. My job is to help people overcome their fears of failure, embarrassment, and even success daily. I have not been facing my biggest fear until today. Why is this such a big deal to me? I’m fearful that I will look “stupid” or “unprofessional” or that because I have a tough time reading that I don’t know what it takes to me a great trainer or coach. But I am doing it today to show people you don’t have to be perfect to face your fears! Just take it one step at a time… before you know it you will be looking back at that obstacle or fear with new energy! You (and I) can accomplish anything you are willing to stand up against! 🙂 So Fear of writing this blog is now over with! 🙂 YAAAA! HAHA
What FEAR is holding you back from the live you want to life? Or how did you overcome that fear?
