Almost a year ago I was interviewed by my dear friend Joumana Kidd . If you haven’t seen this interview check it out for 2 reasons.
1. I give my #1 guilty pleasure located in my home town of Fairhaven, MA and….
2. I get to share my faith very openly bc of the safe environment Joumana creates.
My favorite part is when I make Joumana and the whole crew close their eyes and meditate, after only a minute the whole set was “Reset”.
I share for the first time why I gave up playing football in high school, realizing in the moment a huge insecurity I had based off of Joumana’s question (btw – Joumana, you are the Queen of excellent questions).
After watching it again just now, I’m amazed with how much growth can happen in less than a year. The new relationships I’ve made, even some friends that have grown distant that I want to make more of an attempt to strengthen. As I launch my new #8DaysAWeek performance supplement line this summer, I realized that the beginning of the creation w/ co-thinker Olaseni Bello was born during this interview.
How I reference my Mum, my first coach of movement, as I always do and how in less than a year she has reinvented herself… #MumsKitchen – so proud of you Mum.
Also on this interview I get to honor and share memories and moments of my mentor Uncle Joe which always brings me to happy tears.
Who I am hasn’t changed after only one year, but I certainly have grown, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. For me looking back for a second and gaining perspective provides me the power of progress. Often times I can get caught up in “what’s next” which makes me feel excited for a moment but then I feel “less than” for several minutes too long and that never feels good…
Instead of making a “to-do list” I now make a, “what I’ve done list” and I feel good, better yet, I feel great!!
If you’ve read to this point, which is a miracle in today’s quick culture and immediate results of 15 seconds or less, then I’m certain of 2 things:
1. That you can relate with me on some level, even care about the path I’m walking, I’m humble & grateful for that.
2. Since you’ve made it this far, what’s another few minutes… excited that you are going to watch the interview, bc I guarantee at least one big idea that you’ll take from it will help guide your week of wellness.
Bonjour from Paris,
