who do you want to be

There is so much to say about this photo.

First and foremost - Saturday night I will be watching the reigning title holder, Amanda Nunes defend her title as featherweight champion.

When I was younger, I wanted to be a ring girl. I thought walking around in a bikini holding a sign was super cool. I was focused on the way I looked. I wanted recognition from people based on my appearance. I was driven by the superficial. I was motivated by the external.

Oh, how things have changed!

Now, I look at that photo and want to be the fighter girl. If I could go back in time, I would love to be an MMA Fighter. I align way more with that. The person with discipline to train hard. The soul that loves a challenge. The spirit that never quits. The girl that can take a hit. That is me!

If I could go back in time and reinvent myself to be anything – I would be_______________.
Finish that sentence.

Often times we tell ourselves, “This is who I am” and “I have always been this way”.
We have the power to be whoever we want.
We have the right to be something different.
Who do you want to be?
