…and never giving up. If you follow my Instagram account @setmyownp.e.ace you know the feeling of being unsure got the best of me for a minute yesterday. I got to the gym to go to R.I.P.P.E.D. and had a short conversation with my brother. I don’t know if it was feeling safe with my brother or realizing how far off I am of his perfect marriage but I just started crying…really crying…the kind where it takes all of your efforts to stop. I debated just driving back home and giving into the feeling of being unsure and insecure for the night but I just couldn’t do it. I knew I had to to stop the tears, go into that gym, and get my workout in because that is who I want to be. I want to set my own p(e)ace, feel my feelings, but not let them control my life. Working out is an important part of my p(e)ace, sanity, and self-esteem. My mom always told me the best thing you can do when you’re feeling bad is to get up, do you hair, put on your makeup and go out about your business. Going into that workout was my version if this advice. An hour later I felt more like myself. I wasn’t completely okay but I was better. Today is a new day and I intend to live it while attempting to leave the overwhelming insecure feeling behind in yesterday.
