Friendship is Magic

I’ve been watching a lot of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic these days. If you have been watching my IG stories then you know. 😂🦄

But it hasn’t been JUST another cartoon to watch, it has been full of lessons in the MAGIC of friendship not only for a Narra but for ME.

The 6 Elements of Harmony and Friendship:







The show reminds me of so many of my own friendships. Friendships where our DIFFERENCES never get in the way of our love for one another, but only make our friendships even STRONGER.

There are two friends in particular that have become more like FAMILY to me.



Believe it or not, we don’t always agree. But we can see each other’s differences of opinion and lovingly respect and support it. We also aren’t afraid to call each other out in a loving way.

Because of my past friendships that fell apart earlier this year, I admitted to both of them that I was scared of losing them.

But Amie reminded me, “Friends will come and go. But we are not just your friends. We are your family.”

And she is right.

Who else wakes up with you at 5am everyday for 67 days to workout in video chat with you? 😉

You would really have to love someone to do that. You would have to love them like you would FAMILY. 🦋🌟🌷

Thank you to @coachelulu and @amie.chiang for reminding me that no matter WHAT happens, I will get through it, I am loved, I am strong and I will never be alone.

Team Unity is STRONG and getting STRONGER.

The best is yet to come for us and for YOU.

I invite you to join us to start your fitness journey, find FRIENDSHIP so that one day we might call each other FAMILY.

I’m a Survivor

Why are you STILL doing this?

I’ve had people I love ask me. Heck, I’ve even asked myself.

I think most of my friends and family thought I’d stick with this diet and exercise thing for a month or two, never mind 3 years.

I never looked for coaching. Coaching found me.

I just wanted to TRY being a better me. A better mom. A mom who wanted to get strong again to be able to go back to work as a special education assistant and then realize I needed to be at home with my daughter. Coaching gave me that opportunity to be at home. I never asked for it but it gave that to me.

I also never intended to reverse my diabetes. That happened “by accident” too. I just kept going with my new lifestyle and I was surprised again.

I also never thought I needed more friends. But I received those too. BEST ONES even. A bestest best one, too.

Healing is something I never knew coaching could give me but it presented me with that gift.

Healing from my back and knee pain from my two car accidents. Healing from my anxiety and depression. Healing my relationships with my family and giving me communication skills to resolve even the heaviest conversations in my marriage.

But the BEST and most UNEXPECTED surprise it has given me to date: the strength, power and healing to overcome my childhood sexual abuse. Especially when issues resurfaced after becoming a mom. Coaching gave me the courage to reach out for help and finally conquer it once and for all.

So yes, I’m STILL doing this. And you know what, I ALWAYS WILL.

Because coaching has been more than pounds and inches lost or muscle and definition gained.

It has given me my LIFE back 10 times over in so many more ways than I have shared before but am ready to share NOW.

Remember, these things have a way of finding YOU. It’s both exciting and scary to know you are EXACTLY where you are supposed to be.

Do you know if YOU are?

If you’re not so sure, I’d love a chance to show you how I found mine. ❤️
