HAPPY MONDAY MY WONDERFUL PEOPLE

It’s a brand new week and a new opportunity to get some new things started in our lives. What an amazing opportunity we all have before us. We have the power to steer our lives in the right direction – But what direction do you chose to steer your life in?

If we lack MOTIVATION, we have no chance of moving forward as MOTIVATION is the driving force which keeps us pushing…Would you agree?

Secretly, MOTIVATION is the driving force behind most successful people in our world today…

Research successful people, and you will find that most, if not all of them are driven by:

MOTIVATION + GOALS = SUCCESS

If you want to get in shape but lack MOTIVATION, the chances are pretty “slim” that you’ll ever reach your goal…Would you agree?

This is why staying MOTIVATED is so important in our day to day life if we are to ever reach success.

How many people do you know in 2015 that deem themselves as successful?

You see, we live in a society where people put themselves down and find it hard to love themselves even…

This combined with self doubt and low self esteem leads to a road of misery and we DO NOT have to live like this!

I don’t want to deviate too much y’all, so I will leave it as that today.

But learn to love yourselves people, learn to smile more and keep MOTIVATED

You will find that your life start’s to improve dramatically 🙂

Roll Safe and Let’s Keep Making This Thing Happen

MUCH LOVE

what-does-it-mean-to-eat-clean

Hey Hey Hey,

What’s up my beautiful people 🙂

I hope everyone’s doing well, enjoying life and eating good.

Today is part “1 of 5” of the Fat Loss 101 blog series.

So what inspired this post then Mr Dees Fitness?

Well…

I met up with my cousin the other day and we was talking until the early hours in the morning. One of the subjects that came up was “Fat Loss”. He looked me square in the eye’s and said:

“Hey bro – I don’t know what I’m doing wrong, but this fat just isn’t shifting…Is it even possible to lose?”

I chuckled and said “Of course it’s possible, it’s not easy though.”

I too felt like this at one point in my life, as I’m sure many of you do – But I never gave up hope and nor should you…

Everybody want’s that special pill – But if it existed, we would all be taking it I’m sure – But the truth is, there are no short cuts I’m afraid (Healthy ones that I know of any way LOL)

But without further ado, let’s get straight to business!

Never Eat Until You’re Bloated

D.Belly

I know I know, we’ve all been there before – When the food taste so good that you struggle to put the knife and fork down.

You’re feeling full already but the flavours are so immense that you can’t help but to keep going. You feel that bloated feeling coming on but you can still find some space for desert.

You chew your way through that cake and ice cream and out of no where you hear a knock at the front door…

KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK

It’s your long time friend Mr Bloat.

He’s come to visit you and plans to stay for a very long time lol…

The Lesson

Never eat until you feel bloated, it’s really not a nice feeling. Portion control becomes a myth when the food enslaves you.

I teach all my clients to eat until they are 80% full. A good way to measure what 80% feels like for you is to eat to the point where you could tuck away a little more…No need to go over board!

Did you know that the more you stuff/over fill your stomach, is the more it starts to distend…

This is why some guy’s have abs and a massive belly at the same time…

D.bELLY 2

WOAH, I hear you think

That or some serious HGH – LOL

Anyhoo, that’s it for part one today. We still have another 4 to go in the series.

I used some of my previous material for this post and added in some extra bits as this information is vital for both your health and fitness.

I hope y’all found this information useful and I’ll be back real soon my people.

MAKE THAT CHANGE TODAY!

thank you

Hey Guys,

How are we all doing on this fine day. I hope everyone is well and enjoying life the way it’s supposed to be enjoyed 🙂

Today is just a quick thank you to all my followers and viewers for making this site as phenomenal as it is. If I didn’t have followers, I wouldn’t be as motivated to keep the site going. But you guys support me with your e-mails of gratitude, your views and your follows and it really does mean a lot to me – Thank You.

I don’t know what direction this site will go in, but I will continue writing content from the heart as it seems that is what you guys like. I now literally have followers from all over the world and this fills me with joy as I never knew it was possible. I never anticipated how massive this site would actually grow. From a hobby to something I look to form as a life time career.

I’m a normal guy in my 20’s from the UK who started this site to make myself a name in the fitness industry not really knowing what that entailed. Since then I have competed in two bodubuilding shows, helped 1000’s of people to stay motivated, inspired, and on track with different areas of their lives.

I’ve seen that the material I write actually benefits peoples lives and this really does mean a lot to me as I never knew I had the potential to be a writer in any way, shape or form…

I even had a woman from my gym share with me that from reading my website it helped her through her divorce – Thank you for sharing this with me and I hope you are reading this now.

After seeing 1600 people sign up to my site in just 40 days with no promotion from my end, I knew that I had to write a book and continue sharing material with y’all.

I would start my YouTube channel now, but I don’t know if I can be 100% consistent as of yet hence why I’m waiting until 2016 to see how my time table changes.

Duration Following Dee’s Fitness

My Journey Has Been Incredible

My Journey Has Been Incredible

I don’t know when any of you started following my site, but if you started following me in 2013 just before my first bodybuilding show, you will have seen my progression from the chubby boy in the gym to the guy with abs in just over 90 days – It is possible for anyone to sculpt their dream physique, you just gotta want it badly enough…

Setting goals and achieving them is what I’m all about and I love helping you guys to do the same – I’ve been doing it for over 3 years now and look to continue in bigger and better ways 🙂

They say setting goals and achieving them deems you as a successful person – I agree on this one.

We can all be successful and happy – We just have to strive for it knowing that it is possible.

~If you think something isn’t possible, then you’re right. If you KNOW it’s possible, then you are also right. It’s all about how you think and what you believe that defines your reality~

The Wrap Up

Before I go though, I just want to share with you guys a picture of when I first started going to the gym. I feel to share this picture as I speak to so many people that don’t believe it’s possible to get abs or to even sculpt their dream physique and this is both a lie and limiting thought process.

The moment I said, OK, time to change - No more talking!

OK, time to change – No more talking!

I remember I took a trip out to the sunny Islands of Jamaica in 2007 and I was trying to suck in my belly every time a hot girl walked past, but it just wasn’t working – Sad times right 😦 LOL

That’s when I knew it was time for me to do something…

IT WAS TIME FOR ME TO MAKE THAT CHANGE!

Then after years of dedication, consistency, clean eating and smart training, I evolved like a Dragon Ball Z character into this:

Girls can't keep there eye's of me at the beach now ;-)

Girls can’t keep there eye’s of me at the beach now 😉

NOW when I go to holiday, it’s a totally different ball game. The girls are coming at me from left, right and centre (yes I am smiling as I write this hehehe)

I used visualisation techniques and saw what I wanted to look like and I surely got there in the end…

Moral of the story: If I can do it, so can you…

I love you guys

~Stay Strong~

~Stay Positive~

~Keep Focused~

~Learn To Let Go Of The Past~

~Smile Everyday~

And live life like today is your last

LOVE, PEACE & POSITIVE VIBES

Hey Guys,

I hope everyone is well, living life and making their dreams a reality.

I was just watching the above video on Youtube and had to share it with you lovely people 🙂

2015 UPDATE

Just to let y’all know, I’ve been busy behind the scenes writing my book and I’m about 50% complete 😉 I will do a free version to give you guys an insight. As stated before, it will be along the lines of self improvement, self motivation and living a better quality of life through changing your psyche and state of mind.

My goal is to help people live a happier life in anyway that I can.

I have to be honest though, I haven’t found it easy as I am now also working full time, currently through the process of moving home and sorting out some personal issues – But that is life…

I’ve also upgraded my Apple Mac Computer that has a HD camera for shooting Youtube videos for 2016 – I’ve always wanted my own Youtube channel and look forward to creating some footage along side this blog.

So lot’s of goodies in the pipe line my people…

P.S – Follow me on Facebook for daily updates, quotes and extra motivation – I’m trying to get to 10,000 likes before next Summer 😉

The-will-to-win-the-desire-to-succeed-the-urge-to-reach-your-full-potential...-these-are-the-keys-that-will-unlock-the-door-to-personal-excellence.

Hello my wonderful people,

How are we all doing on this beautiful day. I hope everyone is doing well and making stuff happen. I wanted to do a Motivation Monday today, but I promised to do a QOTW and felt in the mood to write one. I’ve found quotes to be rather useful to help us get through our day to day grind. They work as powerful mood up lifters when we can sometimes be feeling down. I find myself reading quotes a few times a day and meditating on the messages that they bring.

Today I wanted to share a quote with you that resonates with me on all levels. So without further ado, I bring to you today’s quote of the week:

The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential… these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.

Now, as humans, we all have what it takes to make our dreams a reality – EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US!

But we have been faced with many limitations since birth. Limitations can come in many different forms:

  1. Our Thought Process On Life
  2. The Self Image We Hold For Ourselves
  3. Statements which don’t hold true i.e – “We Can’t, It’s Not Possible,You Don’t have what it takes, It’s Going To Take To Long” and things around that nature

So before we venture on our journey to success, we first have to believe in ourselves 100% of the time. Using affirmations can help greatly:

Affirmations

daily-affirmations

Use the affirmations above and affirmations such as:

I Am Powerful

I Am Strong

I have 100% Confidence

Affirmations used daily can help you to stay focused, on track with goals and can help to bring about personal awareness (tuning into your deeper self) You can even do a Google search on affirmations and the results page will bring back loads of goodies that you can print out and carry around with you (or stick on your walls around your house)

Now, let me ask you individually through the screen…

Do you have the will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential?

Whatever it is that you want from life, you have to want it badly enough to go and get it – Because believe me, it’s not going to get up and just come strolling along to you.

You see, we all have what it takes to be winners – But are you putting in the work to be a winner?

Do you have the desire to succeed? A lot of people say they want success, but if they really wanted it they would go out and chase it. Some of you like the idea of success but don’t believe it can be ascertained, so you just dream about it all day long and live in fantasy land…

This all changes today!

Today is the day that you start unlocking your full potential. And I’m happy that I can help you to do so. But trust me on this one, you have to be willing to put in the ground work first.

Adopting a winners mind set doesn’t just happen over night. It takes at least 33 consecutive days before your subconscious mind adjust to the re-programming.

Unlocking Your Full Potential

your-full-potential

OK, before we move on – Let me ask you another question:

What does it even mean for  you to unlock your full potential?

The beauty of life is that we are all individuals and will all inevitably answer that question differently.

To me, unlocking my full potential meant a number of things:

  1. Writing – A few years ago I never knew that I was good at writing until I created this website and found I had natural writing abilities. Unlocking my potential within the realms of writing meant for me that I was to explore and write about different topics. This was one of the ways I could see for me to grow as a writer.
  2. Music – My hidden secret is that I am a Musician in my spare time. I am a deep music lover and took the plunge to learn how to create music back in 2011. Like writing, I am naturally good at it and have been learning how to make House music on the weekends. I know that to get better I have to keep practising. And by practising I will always be that one step closer to reaching my full potential within the realms of music.
  3. Bodybuilding – For those of you who have been following my journey, you would have seen that I use to be the chubby boy with no abs. But I knew that with the right nutrition and the right training that I could excel and reach close to my bodies full potential.

The beautiful thing with the body though is that we can reach a state of what we call perfection and still always work at perfecting. It’s a never ending game and the same could be said with striving for success in life. Do we ever stop?

Back to you though, your potential and the question above… 

What does it mean for you to unlock your full potential?

standard_523

I’ll help you to get the ball rolling:

  1. What are you good at?
  2. What do you do in your spare time?
  3. What do you enjoy doing?
  4. What would you like to improve?

The above questions can help you to look at your life in a broader light and bring about new energy in terms of your thinking. Once you have some fresh perspective, set some new goals to help get you going on your journey to personal excellence. You don’t have to wait for a New Year or for Monday morning to get started. There is no better time than NOW to get going!

If you are reading this right now YOU ARE A WINNER and never let anyone tell you other wise!

It’s been great catching up with you all and I’ll be back sooner than you know with some more of that good stuff 😉

Take it easy folks 😀

Much Love

David Richards

Quotes by: Confucius/David Richards

What’s up my beautiful people,

How are we all doing on this fine day. I hope everyone is doing well, enjoying life and achieving their goals.

I’ve been well for those asking thank you 🙂

I’m back in the gym 5 days a week now, 100% clean eating (well a little treat on weekends LOL) and I’m half way into my ebook – I’m doing one for free and releasing a self published version – So I’ve been a busy bunny guys.

I aim to blog at least twice a week now (I’m scared to make any promises LOL) but I want to help you guys as much as I can whilst living a balanced social life.

But without further ado, let’s get straight to business…

Goals and Motivation

I believe that life has added value when we have goals to work towards, wouldn’t you agree?

It gives us motivation and drive to focus our energy on something that is likely to bring us success in the future, and I’m sure we all want to be successful in life.

Staying motivated isn’t easy though, and I’m sure we’ve all been in a situation where we’ve lacked motivation in some way, shape or form – But there are many tools to help us stay on track and today I will share some with you.

Before we get to the juicy stuff though – Let me ask you all a question or 2…

1) What does Success mean to you?

2) Do you believe that you have what it takes to go and make success a reality for you?

Meditate on that for a moment…

As humans, we sometimes grow up facing face self doubt and this can affect how we view ourselves on a daily basis. Believe it or not, self doubt can be the determining factor as to whether we obtain success or not and I’ll tell you why…

If you don’t believe in yourself, who is going to believe in you? Who is going to keep you going when times get tough eh?

And if you start doubting your character, its also easy to find excuses to give up when times get rough.

Self doubt will have that little voice in your head telling you that you can’t do it or even worst, put you in a state of procrastination saying:

 “I’ll Do It Another Time” – Poison to be avoided at all cost!

Also, if you don’t see yourself in a positive light, it’s hard for others to do so as well. Subconsciously without realising, the state of self doubt will have you carrying yourself in a certain manner that is easily noticeable by others around you.

For example, your body language, the way in which you speak and how you carry yourself in general are all critical factors that determine whether someone views you as confident or not.

(I will write a post soon about how to boost Confidence in day to day life)

But as today is all about Motivation, below I will share a tip to help you stay Motivated and on track with your goals.

Visualisation

visualise-your-success-01

I’ve spoke about Visualisation before, but it is a vital part of the process where goal setting and staying motivated is concerned. I usually sit with my clients and get them to visualise what it is that they want from life. Without visualising where you want to be, how can you know where you want to go. Think on that for a moment…

Visualise very clearly and vividly what career you want for yourself. Visualise your dream partner. Visualise your dream car. Visualise the amount of money you want to make. Keep dreaming and dream big my people. If any of you have watched the DVD the Secret or know anything about Law of Attraction, you will know how important visualisations are. They bring about a wonderful feeling in the present moment of now. One thing the DVD didn’t really mention though is that:

Law of Attraction + Action = Success

You see, you can’t just dream big and take no action…You have to go out there and make stuff happen…Ya Dig!

Write Down Your Goals

goal_setting

I don’t mess around when it come’s to goal setting. I have my goals written down in a small book that I carry around with me. It’s a constant reminder why I can’t eat McDonalds when I’m doing a Bodybuilding show or a modelling shoot.

You always want to review your goals daily to help you stay on track and to keep the consistency going.

Bedroom walls, the kitchen, the bathroom i.e are all great places to stick your goals up. Write them down on a piece of paper (post it notes even) and stick them up all around your house. This is how I practice and adopt self motivation…

You see, I’m a guy who loves my food – And I mean LOVE my food LOL – So staying motivated when it comes to getting abs isn’t always the easiest for me. (My earlier followers have seen me out of shape before – I will try and re-upload the pictures to show you how far I’ve come from being tubby to the boy with abs)

That’s it for today though my people, I hope you’ve enjoyed reading as much as I’ve enjoyed writing 😀

I’m going to be bringing back the much requested:

“Quote’s Of The Week” – You guy’s showed me a lot of Love for those blog post there, so it’s only right.

If y’all want me to cover any issues, hit me up on my contact page and I’ll see what I can do.

As always – Much Love and Blessings to You All

Hello My Good People,

How are we all doing on this fine day. Summer is now officially here and the BBQ’s have started, the tops are coming off and the music is pumping out of those car stereos.

Welcome Back Summer 🙂

I hope you are all doing extremely well, sticking to your goals, enjoying life and trying to live stress free.

I know this can be difficult at times though as we do live in a negative world – But surround yourselves with good people, stop watching the media (it show’s nothing but negativity – would you agree) And do activities which brings you both joy and happiness. I would say this is a great start to cutting of some of the negativity in our lives.

My energy as of late has been towards writing my book/e-book that I am putting a lot of effort into at the moment. Also, I have invested in a microphone and I’m working on creating program packs for you guys to listen to as MP3 files – Great for listening to first thing in the morning, whilst driving to work, at the gym, whilst relaxing or before bed.

Some of the topics I look to cover will include: Motivation, Goal setting, Wealth, Health and Happiness – The basics for any human being to be happy, successful and to live a life with true value.

Today is just a quick post though about “Worrying, Stress, and Clearing Your Mind”

As a people, we tend to worry and over think and this naturally leads us to stress. And as we all know, stress can lead to a number of things:

Stress-free-zone

Say No To Stress

1) Anxiety

2) Depression

3) Lack of Sleep – Lack of sleep within itself causes health issues

4) Physical Illness

5) Poor Mood/State of Mind

So it makes sense that we do all we can do to try and not worry and over think right?

We need to be honest with ourselves and ask the Important question:

“What actually causes us stress”

Only you can ask this question to yourself…

Set aside some time and with a pen and some paper if necessary and write down that which is bothering you…It makes it so much easier and at least you can go back to what you have written down for reflection at a later date…

Once you find the root cause of what is bothering you, then and only then can you slowly start to work through the issue(s) – These exercises don’t work over night. Be patient with yourself and take your time.

“Stress could come from anything in life – Your 9-5 JOB (Just Over Broke), Family Life, Relationship Issues, Low Income or the Simple Act of Over Thinking”

Since I started practising Meditation, my thoughts have been a lot more calm and I am able to deal with day to day situations a lot easier. Meditation isn’t necessarily what you see in the movies though…

You know what I’m on about – Leg’s crossed, Aummm chanting sounds in the background and people dressed as a Buddhist or Monks… Don’t believe the hype my people LOL.

Meditation can simply be closing your eyes for 10-15 minutes a day, either sitting or lying down and just focusing on your breathing. There is scientific studies showing how Meditation works on the Human Anatomy, and I will share this with y’all if interested. You’d be surprised how many benefits there actually are once you do some research on the subject. Some key points on the benefits of Meditation to get you started are:

Meditation

focus-control

1) NEUROSCIENTISTS have found that, after just 11 HOURS of meditation, practitioners had structural changes in the part of the brain involved in monitoring our FOCUS and SELF CONTROL.

2) Research has found meditation to promote ‘DIVERGENT THINKING’ a type of thinking that allows many new ideas to be generated – Talk About Ultimate Creativity.

3) Mindfulness also affects awareness and the FILTERING out of other mental processes during creative tasks.

Worrying is Like Walking Around With An Umbrella On A Sunny Day 

I kid you not, the woman on the TV just said the above quote to her friend on an Australian cooking show that I’ve got running in the background and I just had to post it in here – What a coincidence or was that meant to happen? Hmmmmm.

Without deviating though, worrying can be avoided and this is something I tell my Mum all the time. If you knew me a few years back, you would know that I used to worry…

“A LOT”

But life wasn’t productive for me back then and I wasn’t enjoying my life like we all should be…

So I researched, bought books about stress and anxiety, watched videos, went to seminars and years later, here I am helping others with what once use to be my enemy…The beautiful cycle of life eh 😀

But listen to the irony which just came to me – We all want to be happy and worry free, yet we are the ones creating worry for ourselves…Meditate on that for a moment…

In reality, no one can create worry for you but yourself…Have you ever looked at it like that?

I have a program that I’m creating to help people stop worrying which I’m saving for my book/e-book, but here’s a step by step guide below which I think is genius to help with this issue:

keep-calm-and-say-no-to-stress-4

Learning to Postpone Worrying:

  1. Create a “worry period.” Choose a set time and place for worrying. It should be the same every day (e.g. in the living room from 5:00 to 5:20 p.m.) and early enough that it won’t make you anxious right before bedtime. During your worry period, you’re allowed to worry about whatever’s on your mind. The rest of the day, however, is a worry-free zone.
  2. Postpone your worry. If an anxious thought or worry comes into your head during the day, make a brief note of it on paper and postpone it to your worry period. Remind yourself that you’ll have time to think about it later, so there’s no need to worry about it right now. Save it for later and continue to go about your day.
  3. Go over your “worry list” during the worry period. Reflect on the worries you wrote down during the day. If the thoughts are still bothering you, allow yourself to worry about them, but only for the amount of time you’ve specified for your worry period. If the worries don’t seem important any more, cut your worry period short and enjoy the rest of your day.

I could keep going, but this was only supposed to be a short post LOL – I just can’t help myself sometimes hehehe

I hope you have learned lot’s today, and have found both the video and blog post insightful.

Share with your friends, family and loved ones and let’s all make this world a better place day by day 🙂

Peace, Blessings, and Much Love To You All

Hey,

How’s it going my beautiful people and what a long time it’s been.

I know I’m 4 months late, but:

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015

I’ve had a hectic 2014 and it’s been one of the busiest and craziest years of my life. From slipping into cardiac arrest, to becoming a public speaker, to starting my own business and becoming self employed – All from the back of my two Bodybuilding shows and modelling shoot at the end of 2013.

2015 started of pretty wild also, but the storm is now calm and I am able to breathe and continue to focus on the things that I really love to do – What else is life about eh?

I’ve learned so many lesson over the past two years (where has time gone so quickly) and feel that I have grown as an individual that can deliver some new juicy content for you guys over the next few years to come…

Today I have no particular topic in mind, but just wanted to catch up with you all and make it known that I am still about and living well. Also to let you know what I’ve been up to as I’ve had hundreds of emails asking what I’ve been getting up to…

Well,

Something happened to me that I never thought was possible…

I TOOK ON TOO MANY GOALS TOO SOON

Now – Not ever in this life time did I think it would be possible for me to take on too much at one go, as I like to think of myself as a pretty balanced individual. But I made that mistake last year and will forever have the experience with me to help me through tougher or similar situations. (I don’t use the concept of mistakes any more, I simply view them as lessons learned)

Now in life, we all want to be successful, healthy and wealthy (I at least hope so anyway) and this leads us to setting goals, doing affirmations and incantations (an affirmation with emotion and reaction).

Life ain’t easy folks, and we must do all we can do to help us get through periods of tough times in our lives. Here’s a list of a few tools that I use to help me through periods of darkness in my life or to help get me through challenging goals. I hope you will also find them useful.

We Can Get Through Anything in Life – 5 Step Program

Don't Give Up

1) Self Talk – As I’ve wrote before, talking to yourself ISN’T a sign of madness. It’s simply an exercise which can be used when you find yourself down about something. Talk to yourself as you would to a loving child. Ask yourself why you’re feeling tense or uptight. You may find that the answer you receive helps you to ease the apprehension you are feeling at the time. I find this exercise also helps to bring me to a state of calmness if I am ever feeling anxious, tense or nervous about anything.

2) Writing Things Down – Writing things down whether using the “Diary” approach method or simply by just scribbling down your thoughts and emotions on a piece of paper is a good way to release anxious energy and a powerful tool if you don’t want to share your issue with anyone.

Writing yours goals on a piece of paper and having them up by your bed so you can see them everyday is also worth doing and highly recommended.

3) Speaking with People – The good ole days before smart phones, where people use to communicate with each other more face to face or actually speak on the phone LOL. Speaking with like minded people helps you to align yourself with that positivity energy needed to get you through that dark spell. Try to build a good circle of people around you that can be there to help you when you need them most.

4) Read Books/Articles – Remember guys, we now live in the DIGITAL AND INFORMATION age where access to information is only a click away (You got that smart phone right LOL)

On a serious note, there are so many books, ebooks, audio books and articles out there that you have no excuses not to better your life. Reading the right books and getting the right information will help you through anything.

A simple search on Google for:

“Self Development”

“Self Improvement”

“Achieving Goals”

“Law of Attraction”

“Motivation Quotes”

Will help you on your path to a better life…

We have a wealth of information out there waiting to help us, we just have to go out there and search for it.

5) Visualisation – Visualisation works simply by you envisioning yourself in the position you want to be in life right now. It’s that simple and rather a fun exercise (LOL, I’m sure we all do it sometimes – Better jobs, careers, loving relationships, holidays, new cars – It can be anything that put’s a smile to your face)

Once you’ve had some reflection time and you know where you want to be in life and you have a clear visual representation of this of this in your mind – GO OUT THERE AND GET IT!

AND DON’T LET NOTHING OR NO ONE STOP YOU ON YOUR JOURNEY!

My philosophy is this –  We only live one life in these physical bodies of ours, so we might as well make the best of it and do as much as we can whilst we are here (Without taking on too much at once of course LOL)

And Remember

~Tough times don’t last, Tough people do~

It’s been great catching up with y’all 🙂

Stay Blessed and Much Love
