You ever get everything you asked for? 🙏Aaaaaaand then promptly start complaining about how hard it is to anyone who will listen?
Welcome to my life today. I’m damn near having every request I’ve submitted to my world/universe approved and I’m catching myself overwhelmed by it all and questioning if I even really want it.
ENTER the SPIRITUALITY of the ATHLETE:
I love starting races/workouts/etc, lining up, gun shot goes and by the time I’m halfway through my muscles burn, it hurts to breathe and I start to wonder 👉👉👉👉👉 am I going to make it? is this worth it? do I have what it takes? Sometimes I even get angry!
I finally learned as an athlete, this isnt personal, it isn’t because I’m unfit or something’s wrong, it’s part of the journey.
It is simply an opportunity and an invitation to connect with my WHY. My WHY is what carries me through to the finish line every damn time.
Sometimes my WHY is to high-five “Future Rach” Sometimes my WHY is to see how far I can go for the thrill, fun and adventure. Sometimes my WHY is what gets me to slow down and to focus on OR maybe even walk side by side holding hands through a Spartan race with one of the most important energetic souls I’ll meet in my lifetime @mr.k.i.c.kass // because I won’t get forever to do that.
Why start a side hustle with this @mr.k.i.c.kass ? Because it’s bringing us closer together as we get to communicate (happily & messily) and I get to see how damn talented and creative he is and that’s just hot af.
Why change up my group coaching to more of a mentorship, because I want to empower others to fish and find their own lifestyle that brings them joy.
Why chase down a world champ status in the WBFF for the next 5 years, because it fulfills something almost sacred in me that I don’t have words for today. I was told by a spiritual director that the language of the soul doesn’t usually translate into words and for some reason we understand it anyways.
What request has been granted in your life today, where are you wanting to walk away or quit and before you do, have you truly connected to your why?
Sunday sunshine! We celebrated two wonderful people getting married yesterday and this morning has been SLOW 😴 The coffee is on and we’re taking it easy. If you need me, I’ll be watering my plants and myself 😂
I’m so excited to have added @brightspotpapier ‘s beautiful art work to the cottage! Too busy at the beach to shop for souvenirs? No worries! You can shop these cute prints, as well a number of other locally made pieces, directly from the cottage. It’s a win for everyone 😊🙌🏻
Visting Montbrio! Men only😂

After a quick few days in Germany and Austria, we made it to the Dolomites 🇮🇹 My first time seeing this lake still, what a place to end the day! Feel free to check out the stories on my highlights to see the full trip so far #airbnb
