If you find yourself humming to U2, it happened to me too lol But this is not what this blog is about today.
A year ago I launched this blog, it seems much like a second ago.
I started it with no expectations of where it would lead me, I just wanted to ‘start’ something I could call my own. I wanted to share my weightloss experiences, how it made me feel. Share a verse you know?
This blog is the first thing i followed through properly, like ever. It is something I made myself, something I created, something I to be proud of.
Turns out the blog was the catalyst I needed to make a big change.
I started to rebuild myself and project Chiara is always under construction, evolving, every single day, one small milestone at a time. The grind never stops.
This blog has given me more than just a platform to express myself
✨Thanks to it, I decided to take my passion for food and fitness to the next level by completing my PT qualification. I followed through.
💪🏻Personal Training is not just a job I go to to earn some cash, it’s about people, their stories, how I can help them reach their goals, break through their barriers, work on their own projects.
I learn something new from my clients everyday: They are as much of a life teacher as i am a coach to them. I grow with them, experience change as it happens; be part of making someone else’s dreams come true. Fitness isn't just about changing your physique. Short-sight.
Fitness changed my life, my mindset and it’s truly a unique journey, one only YOU can undertake, see where it leads you.
100 % yours.
I’m merely a facilitator of change much like my personal trainer was to me.
These days i work everyday, 😂way harder than I used to a year and a month ago; I am knackered a lot, I have had to sacrifice many aspects of my old life to get to where I am today.
All Worth it! I am happy!
Because now you see, now I have a purpose.
To wake up knowing I’m going to my job, MINE being the operative word here, that I am fully in charge of my choices & can make a difference in someone’s journey, that I’m building my future well that’s just magic.
☺️I’m so grateful for having finally found what sets my soul on fire.
🎶I’ve got a new revelation, life is for the taking, every moment waiting, is another one wasted 🎶
No more waiting around for that big chance, that opportunity at the right time, right second. We are given opportunities every day to make a new path for ourselves. Go after it, whatever your IT is, with solid ACTION, (because a wish without action remains just that).
You’ve got to put in the work; it’s never going to be easy, it's never gonna be perfect, but you can start today to build.
💡Be AUTHENTICALLY YOU; Show people your colours; show them the good, the bad, the ugly. Life is happening right now, it can suck beyond belief, it’s not on all about unicorns and rainbows, it can be exhilarating, full-filling BE REAL & TRUE TO YOURSELF ALWAYS. People dig real, way more than you think; people see through the smoke mirrors and insta fakeness.
💓I’m so grateful for my family, the friends that supported me in this life change, gave me strength when I didn’t have any in myself
💓I’m grateful for the strangers now fam that have come forward to help me out of nowhere achieve this milestone when they didn’t really have to. Made me believe in good deeds again.
🤧The path I chose can be a lonely one sometimes but I’d rather be lonely & work on my purpose, than being in a room full of people that make me feel lonelier
💪🏻Nothing worth having comes without hard work grit determination & a healthy dose fo fear! It requires you to go #ballsdeep out of your comfort zone after your vision. You have a vision? Something You want to achieve? Begin, find a way, work to get it.
🖤That love always finds a way and I never want to stop believing (Dreams) Don't quit me, i won't quit you
👏🏻I’ve learnt to clap for myself, celebrate what I’m capable of, and not rely on people's approval.
🖤To be proud of every little bit of myself as a human flaws and all. OWN IT
✌🏻I’m never apologising for being me again: the squirrel chasing, coffee laced, absolute melt, stubborn weirdo that I am who always wears her heart on her sleeve, and is stronger than she thinks
❤️That’s what this blog helped me achieve: me.
Going forward I want to keep growing, learning, become a better Personal Trainer & really own my craft. Cause i don’t want to be average, i want to create a legacy
🖤The best bit about it?? That even if one word of what I write, makes a difference to even just one person then my friends, I truly feel like I already won at life. I’m ONE today 🙌🏻
The Man In The Glass
Peter Dale Wimbrow Sr.
When you get what you want in your struggle for self And the world makes you king for a day
Just go to the mirror and look at yourself
And see what that man has to say.
For it isn’t your father, or mother, or wife
Whose judgment upon you must pass
The fellow whose verdict counts most in your life Is the one staring back from the glass.
He’s the fellow to please – never mind all the rest For he’s with you, clear to the end
And you’ve passed your most difficult, dangerous test If the man in the glass is your friend.
You may fool the whole world down the pathway of years And get pats on the back as you pass But your final reward will be heartache and tears
If you’ve cheated the man in the glass.
