Hi all . hope your all well and enjoying the week
The things that make you feel good or feel loved or of value may not necessarily be the same things your friends , partner or loved ones respond to . For some people it’s the things you say or write that are important , for others it’s gifts , dinners , presents etc and for others it’s actions, gestures and acceptance. There is no wrong or right and its just the way we are wired and often the battle is to find out what works for the people you care about and what they respond to. We often go thru life thinking that if we enjoy it , respond to it and are grateful for it than our friends,, family and loved ones will also feel the same way.
I loved playing in team sports and nothing feels better than winning a game, singing the team song and sitting around talking about it afterwards with your team mates. To me it wasn’t so much the winning but how happy it made my team mates , friends and spectators feel and respond. That buzz would hang around for days and it’s amazing how close it brings people together and why you want to play and win for one another. I use to compete in Natural Body building and won many shows including state and overall tiles but nothing made me feel as good, proud or excited as when one of my clients or people I trained won or did really well in shows.
I still train hard myself during the week for my own reasons but none of them have anything to do with how others view me and the only reason I competed was to grow as a trainer and learn as much about changing peoples physiques as I could. I now get so much gratitude in helping others and love watching people make progress whether its strength, fitness, weight, movement, mental toughness, sports specific, rehab or overall wellness. I get so excited when I see clients make improvements , reach their goals and beyond , get ready for that special day, get chosen into that sports team they have worked so hard for , overcome illness or injuries, improve their health , mental toughness . conditioning and so much more.
To me actions speak so much louder than words and giving always makes me feel better than receiving. I still feel awkward when I receive gifts but love nothing more than giving. To me giving isn’t always the material things it’s about giving up your time, going out of your way to help others, small comments or gestures that make someone feel good, loved or belong. To me Touch is powerful whether it’s being intimate with someone or as simple as a touch on the shoulder, a hug . kiss or hold someones hand.
I love seeing people happy and love nothing more than seeing my children and loved ones laughing, playing and having fun. I’m still a huge kid at heart and love hanging out with kids and playing sports or games with them but also love chilling out with good friends / company , enjoying a barbie and drink or two. As many of you know I’m a sucker for a home cooked meal and baked goodies / treats and I’m so grateful / thankful for everyone who has taken the time out of their busy life to not only bake or cook but to think of me in the process.
I feel so blessed to have a job I not only love but have the opportunity to help so many people in so many ways. I love cuddles and hugs and it’s the small gestures of encouragement , positivity and words that mean so much. Words can be cheap but when they are backed with actions and the right emotions they can be extremely powerful. I’m lucky enough to understand that all the swearing in the gym that is directed at me is all out of Love and that it’s your way of showing me how much you care . LOL
Everyone deserves to feel loved, important, and a sense of belonging in peoples lives and in this world anything less is selling yourself short because you are Special , unique and there is no better version of you than You so become the very best version of you that you can.
The sad truth is that the people that you Love the most can also hurt you the most but regardless of how much hurt you have absorbed never stop giving and loving with all your heart.
It’s the school holidays so please don’t be shy to bring your children or any friends or family that need some Fitcorp Loving .
Take care and I’ll see you in the gym
