@chelseablush: Thank you God for this mess.
Without a mess, Ill never have a ministry. Without the mess my life was 3 years ago, I wouldn’t have the BEFORE photo that you see. I wouldn’t have had 50 lbs to lose. I wouldn’t have had $10,000 in credit card debt. Without dropping out of college 3x, my success with Beachbody wouldn’t be as sweet. Without being a former pack-a-day smoker with asthma, my cardio and fitness level wouldn’t be as impressive. Without being a party girl, I wouldn’t be as honored and grateful when someone called me a health freak. Without being clinically depressed and on anti-depressants for half a decade, I wouldn’t have the smile on my face when someone calls me “too positive + happy”. Without my record of ridiculously toxic love relationships and bad decisions on my part, I wouldn’t have the beautiful marriage and wonderfully and unbelievably perfect husband in comparison.
Thank you God for this mess.
