Each day I live
I want to be
A day to give
The best of me
I'm only one
But not alone
My finest day
Is yet unknown
Picture the scene, I am in my car, and I am giving it my very best Whitney. Air grabs, chin wobbles, singing so loud that the windows are steaming and I thought if my finest day is yet to come then it’s going to have to be pretty flippin awesome!
This year has been tough. It has been my toughest year for a little while and it came from nowhere. Previously the tough times came as a build up, like a water coming to the boil, and by the time it was bubbling at the boil, I was ready. This time it came from nowhere and I was literally thrown into the hot boiling water.
But, and it’s a big but. It has turned into the best possible ending. I can list off more positives from this year than I can negatives. I know that the good things are on the increase and that more fine days are yet to come.
Do I want to have peaked and have hit my finest day already?
I want one moment in time
When I'm more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I'm racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will feel
I will feel eternity
Four years ago, I was training to be a self-development trainer and completing some nutrition courses on the side. I wanted to take my life experience and use it to help people to learn from my mistakes. That was essentially it, in a nutshell, that was my plan.
As the training turned into practice and experience my hobby turned into more holistic lifestyle coaching, and as time has gone on my hobby has evolved into a company and full-time self-employment.
I am more than I thought I could be. I have achieved so much more than I had ever intended. That’s the beauty of taking small steps outside of your comfort zone. Small steps don’t feel too hard, but they can lead you to incredible places.
The last couple of months has been all about planting the seeds, seeds I chose to plant, and nurture and grow. This really has been all up to me!
I've lived to be
The very best
I want it all
No time for less
I've laid the plans
Now lay the chance
Here in my hands
I’ve lived to be the very best of me. The best version. I rose from the ashes into something stronger and more powerful and more determined than ever to succeed. I want the very best, for me and for my son. The best according to me, not anyone else.
Is it selfish to want it all? I don’t think so. We all have one life to live and to not live it to our very best feels a waste to me. I choose what that looks like. I determine how that should be. In the same way, you choose how your best version of you looks, feels, behaves. You, nobody else.
I’ve laid the plans this year. Now 2018 approaches and the chance is in my hands to go and make it happen.
Have you laid the plans?
Have you decided how you will live to be the very best?
You're a winner for a lifetime
If you seize that one moment in time
Make it shine
Everyone is a winner. Everyone!
You have to seize the moment
You have to take that step
Lay the Plan
Sieze that one moment in time
Make it Shine
Rise to be the best version of you.
