Things you do daily that will drain your energy.
Holding onto the past.
Taking things personally.
Always checking Instagram, Facebook, being on your phone.
Stressing over things and people you can not control.
Trying to please others.
Complaining all the time.
Not enough sleep.
Sleeping in late.
Staying in a job or relationship when you are not happy.
If you know me you know I always have said I learn best from falling down. Yes it totally sucks to fall down or fail and then own it but for me it’s always the crisis that leads me to the opportunity to fix myself. I went on a hiatus to work on myself. Full time. Why? Because I was sick of the mental exhaustion, and I love to learn and grow so I can influence, inspire and help you, I needed to get clear on some things.It makes me most happy to be real and teach you things from experience. I got sick of putting a band aid on my bullshit and remembered who I was when I started this TGM thing back in 2008. In order to change something we dislike, we must become uncomfortable with ourselves, call our bullshit out, so I started to educate myself on why the same things, situations would keep happening in my life. (I have found so many great authors, philosophers, and doctors to share with you.) I will have them posted on this website.
But back to my story…So I started running. Yes outside running and I forgot how much I hated to run to but I loved the endorphin high, the after feeling of the run and that is what TGM is best known for the after buzz. So that is when I began doing TGM the workout again. AND that feeling came back to me. My mind began to untangle and my body became alive again. My purpose is to help you feel and think differently by becoming self aware of your own bullshit. Being a grown up sucks and is hard work. Just like being a parent for the first time. The unknown is scary and can be debilitating and it was for me until recently. No one gives you a handbook on how to be a “grown up” let alone a grown up in the public eye, with kids, divorce etc. you just learn from trial and error and mostly from what you know are experiences you have been through. I wasn’t experienced with any of the stuff I went through and I wanted to change myself so I could be the best version of me for my boys and me. I was stuck and scared and still am but I am so self aware again and I forgot how great it feels. I love, love, love the process of leveling up mentally, physically and now spiritually (I will be the spiritual person who has an edge ;-) and that is what TGM is as a whole. That is why I love to kick my ass on the mat so much. So if you take anything away from this post let it be self reflection. Self reflection leads to self discovery which will then take you to the process of self awareness. I am in the process of self actualization which happens after self awareness. Self actualization means to embrace the unknown and ambiguous. I have always been motivated by personal growth not by the satisfaction of needs.
Hope this helps you if you are feeling zapped. Namaste’ xoxo Tracey
