Good morning to all of you out there fighting the good fight and getting after it.  I have my cup of joe in the yeti, and am gonna be jetsetting down south for work today. 

I wanted to reach out to everyone this morning to talk about the struggle that many of us go through, have gone through or will go through in this journey.  

The struggle is different to most people and affects people in many different ways. Struggle can be weight gains, personal drama, tough situations or whatever it is that makes this journey bumpy and rough but here is something to think about. 

Do you love the struggle? Do you use the struggle to motivate you?  I tend to look at my struggles as my identity in my life.  I think of struggles as a map of the peaks and valleys my life takes. Struggles are like pages of my book that I am writing about my life. I tend to find that I embrace my struggles now. 

If you are struggling … use the struggle as a learning opportunity, use it as a motivator and as a benchmark to show how you can survive anything sent and thrown at you. 

We tend to look at struggle as something that tears us down and beats us up but we really should be looking at it as a building block to help us be stronger, more empowered, and able to move forward and be successful. 

Smile during the struggle folks … we are still living and breathing and have people that love us out there. 

Have a great day. 

Much Love, Shano

We may slow down, we may stall a bit in our journey, just don’t quit.

Good morning everyone … as i wake up to some rain feeding my lawn this morning, I am reminded how great it is to have a lawn to feed .. I am feeling especially thankful this morning as i sip my cuppa dark roasted Joe like a scene from a commercial with two hands and a loud “aaaaaahhhh” after each sip. 

I was thinking this morning about the lull that many people hit in this journey where it seemed like at one time or another the weight was falling off like crazy and it is hard to not get frustrated with the prolonged “plateau” and I wanted to chat about it. 

Listen, we all have or will go through ups and downs in this journey where we will experience major highs and then extreme lows but the key to all of it is to never, ever give up. Always keep one foot in front of the other even if that step is the slightest movement of the foot, keep it moving forward. 

Like the image says, the only time that the wheels stop and the failure happens is when you give up. Don’t ever give up.  You are worth the investment to continue to push forward especially during the times where you don’t feel like it anymore. Those are the most important times to dig into what is most important to you and remember why you are doing this in the first place. 

If you haven’t hit a lull in loss yet, you more than likely will and take this CoffeeTalk and tuck it away because you may need it sometime.  And if you are at goal and are in maintenance mode the same situation arises … just because you hit your numbers and you have achieved your goal doesn’t mean the journey stops because slides happen … always keep grinding … there really is no finish line just getting better along the way. 

Have a great Thursday. 

Much Love, Shano
