Find peace in the struggle

Life is a combination of every emotion under the sun.

We live for the moments of happiness, joy, excitement, and all of the wonderful things that energize, inspire and make us feel complete.

But what about the tough stuff?

Broken relationships, body disappointment, poor health and disease, financial struggles…

I believe that some of the most powerful growth experiences of our lives will always come from our struggles.

We won’t necessarily appreciate that struggle in the moment. In fact, we might hate it and wonder why something so awful is happening to us.

But there’s a lesson and opportunity for growth under it all.

When you feel these intense struggles throughout your life remember…

…Thousands or millions of other people have also experienced this struggle and you are not alone.

…Life is cyclical and better times are coming.

…You can become curious about the circumstance rather than fill yourself full of fear and worry. Seek meaning and lessons.

…And simply know that you are up-leveling as a person in some way. You will be stronger, better prepared, and a more solid individual from this experience.

I know that it’s hard to see opportunities in struggle, but I promise, if you can shift your perspective, not only will the struggle be easier to manage, but the experience also won’t be nearly as painful.

The only thing we can really control in life is how we react to things. Manage this well and so much changes.

I’d love for you to comment below and share your thoughts with me.

CHRISTINE HENDERSON

Coach/Motivator

I am a wife and mother of 3. My family hails from the island of Jamaica. I left behind an unfulfilling life of work and lack of self-care to a life filled with balance and happiness. I am driven by the lack of adequate healthcare, lack of health education, and gaps in the healthcare system. I am an advocate for living a heart healthy lifestyle and coaching others toward proactive healthcare to significantly decrease rising numbers in chronic illnesses plaguing our families, communities, and country.

EMILY DUAB

Coach/Motivator

 Hello! I was born in Washington (the state) into an Air Force family, so I moved around a lot as a kid before ending up and growing up mostly in Maine. I swam competitively for about 10 years, making states in all events and placing in the 50 free, and diving for 4 years getting runner up at states on the 3m board. I then did my undergraduate in engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder and worked as an apparel designer for a year before going back to my true calling of health care. I enrolled in the Tufts MPH program and am currently applying to medical schools, with the ultimate degree of one day getting my MD. I am exceedingly passionate about fitness as a preventative measure; so much for the health issues these days stems from lack of physical fitness, and poor diet, both of which are simple (if not easy) to fix! I hope that through my work as a coach, I inspire formation of habits to give a long, happy, healthy, and full life.

I was born in Atlanta, GA, but mostly grew up in Florida. I’m a proud graduate of the University of Florida (Gooo Gators!).
My passion with nutrition is three fold. 1. I love how food is so healing. You can legit heal or prevent just about any ailment through food, and create massive generational health shifts through food knowledge and application.  2. I love how you can take very simple ingredients and turn them into a healthy meal. 3. I love showing people how you can healthy can be so delicious and indulgent.
