Like most people, I’ve felt sadness, weakness and anger. I know what it’s like to have everything and nothing. I’ve felt as emotionally and physically broken as a person can feel. I’ve been in a place of such desperation that it felt like there was no light in sight. However, I did find that light, and I did climb out of that awful place, and I want to show others that they can do it too. Since I found myself again, I’ve learned that nobody and nothing defines me. I know that my health will always be my baseline, and investing in my mental and physical health is a major priority. It’s shown me exactly what I’m made of: strength, resilience, willpower and determination. I want people to know that no matter where you are in life, no matter what you’ve been through, you can find happiness again. True happiness comes from not accepting defeat, working hard, pushing yourself each and every day to meet your goals, and helping others to accomplish theirs. However you show up in your own day-to-day training, just be strong and start each day by giving your body what needs. And tell yourself the same thing I do: I have faced many adversities in my life, and I am JUSTSTRONG.
