Some of you may have noticed that I changed the name of my blog to Faith, Fit & Fumble. I started this blog as an assignment for one of my MBA courses and realized not only how much I liked writing, but how blogging became my diary. I wanted to create a safe place for not only my thoughts but for others who could relate to my experiences and thoughts, in hopes that it would help provide some sort of support/comfort within their own lives. I originally titled my blog, “A Beautiful Mess” which represented my life as a whole, I am a creative, an optimist, an open book so I wanted to write and talk about everything, not just solely one topic. But, I began to struggle with what to write about ironically, because my brain goes a mile a minute, and I wanted to ensure I was speaking on topics that could hopefully help others. So, that lead me to rebrand my blog to Faith, Fit & Fumble.
Faith has been at the center of my life, my whole life. I grew up in a Catholic Church, I went to Wednesday study, church every Sunday, and Vacation Bible School in the summers. Even my extra circulars were surrounded by faith, as I was a part of CYO track and basketball teams. As I got older, I began to question my faith, as for I never understood anything that was going on in Church, and religion more so or less was ingrained into me by my family. I am thankful for the lessons and structure now as an adult, but it took me a long time to get there. Religion at a young age became a chore for me, and I later had to rediscover the love and divinity of God and our Savior Jesus Christ, for myself. Being Christian, I want to incorporate faith into this platform, because it’s not only a vital part of my life but helps to keep me grounded. That being said, this is a safe place, and my spirituality is not meant to make anyone feel uncomfortable, or try to shift anyone’s religion or perspective on religion. You can expect topics such as, how faith plays into wellness, how spirituality centers me, how religion acts as an escape for me to see past the hate in our society, etc… I would love to hear your experiences with religion as well and for this to be an open platform for us to bounce our ideas, feelings, and beliefs off one another. I think one of the biggest things wrong with our society is that we don’t know how to listen to one another, and our differences.
Fit, gains season! I love the idea of fitness, health, wellness, etc… Love it, but I’m just getting started. Staying in shape and eating healthy, and making sure I am listening to my body is so important to me, but I always fall off the bandwagon and end up not taking the best care of myself. I tend to make excuses, like “I am too tired”, “I’ll start Monday”, “Just this one cheat day”, which usually turns into multiple, the list goes on. We are all real people, and we all have our own struggles when it comes to fitness and motivation, I want to share mine with you. Hopefully, my blog will help to keep me accountable, and I hope it will help you too. I created a blog a while back, called “Let’s Be Fitness Buddies” and I want us to stick to it. You can expect blogs on healthy foods, recipes, exercises, and more. Stay tuned.
Lastly, I want to talk about fumbling. Life is hard. Everyone’s experience is different and in life, we’re going to fumble. Whether that’s financially, emotionally, physically, mentally, in a relationships, etc… you name it, life happens. I want to help to motivate you to get back up and to keep going. We can’t control a lot of things that happen to us in life, but we can control how we choose to respond and react to those things. I want to share with you some of my own life experiences where I fumbled, and share with you the outcome and how I responded; and even in some cases how I could have responded better. Never let life get you down, because as cheesy as it sounds, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
