I have done many things in my life, I have worn many hats. I used to say that I was a jack of all trades, and a master of none. I always longed to have something in my life that I was so passionate about, I could get lost in it. Something I was so good at…that I would feel like a pro doing it. That there was no denying I was born to do it. I hungered for that feeling of satisfaction in the moment…like what you see on the faces of people in church singing and in their hearts knowing/believing truly they are saved.
I woke up this morning, body sore from the past few days of awesome workouts…and I thought to myself, “I can’t wait to workout today”. I laughed about a video on Facebook mocking overly enthusiastic muscle heads…because it reminded me of myself. And then I thought to myself about how I feel – happy.
I am where I am suppose to be.
Doing what I am suppose to be doing.
And I am really good at it. I get lost in my workouts. I am a walking example of my sport, my dedication and effective methods, my art piece. I was born to do this…my whole life of working out, being healthy and active…of eating right; my years of running and chasing happiness. I didn’t realize it until this moment – I have what I always wanted. I have had it for some time, it just took me becoming an IFBB Pro to realize it. So with complete and whole hearted commitment to myself and this sport, I say out loud and proud.
I AM A BODYBUILDER.
