Stay on your Victory Path!

Whether you have goals in life – love, career, health, fitness, money, you name it, you need to stay focused.

There will be so many things that can come along that are there set as distractions. Be aware of this and try not to spend too much time entertaining these outside things. You know what you want, you know what you need to get there and obtain it, plough on through and just do it!

The light is at the end of the tunnel…. you can see it…. but it still seems so close yet so far away….sound familiar?

This is when your voice of self doubt will come in, negative thoughts will enter your head, and you’ll on your very own fall of course if you don’t take the necessary steps to stay on your victory path!

What do I do when I feel this start to happen? A big thing I do now is drop everything I am doing as long as I am not in a class myself or with a client, and put my earbuds in, go to youtube and find some great guided meditations. This always turns my head back on straight, and then I can carry on with my day as if none of those things even entered my head.

Important thing is unless you have hours to spare, once you find a guided meditation you feel will work for you, set your alarm!

It is very easy to become so relaxed and focused on the mindwork in the meditation that you fall asleep. Don’t worry if you fall asleep, the messages still reach your subconscious mind, which is where a lot of these mind blocks, self doubt, and negativity are housed.

I will share a few of the one’s I use on a regular basis. I suggest lying down for the fullest relaxation experience, but it can be done seated and close your eyes. Follow what the voice says.

I hope these help you as much as they have helped me. I welcome your feedback!

Have a great day! 🙂

AIM HIGH – An Amazing Short FILM

Amazing Short Horror Film!

Where to start!!? First I am happy that I met Daniel McGuire a few years back through Muay Thai. But unbeknownst to me, I found out, he is also a horror movie buff. And not only does he enjoy horror movies, but it also turns out he writes and directs short films of this genre. Back when we met he told me all about this horror movie he was working on. I can’t actually remember if it was another movie or his current one AIM HIGH. I just know, that off and on, I would always ask him how the progress on his movie was going.

For those of you who don’t know me that well…. I LOVE HORROR MOVIES!!! At Halloween, I used to always watch all the Halloween specials, and horror movies…

Now, into my adulthood, all of October, I watch at least 1 horror movie per night. It is the way I celebrate Halloween every year now. I even go to Horror Movie Festivals!

I felt very honoured to be one of a smaller circle of people to get to view AIM HIGH in its final editing phase. And now, to have just seen a private screening tonight of it as a feature short film was so exciting!!

What can I say!!?? I thought this movie was amazing! What else can I say without giving to much away!???

I really enjoyed the suspense that was developed from beginning to end. I felt there was a lot of creativity not only with set, music, lighting etc., but also with use of the ongoing conversations going on in the minds of the characters involved. If you like dark humour like me, it was HILARIOUS at moments that were perfect! I also really like the actors that were chosen for this movie. Not only are they talented, but I love how expressive their faces are, especially Rebekka Gondosch and Michael Pearson. In particular their eyes!!

Daniel McGuire and the rest of the AIM HIGH team will be starting their festival run in June! They have submitted their short film into a variety of Film Festivals both locally, provincial, nationally, and internationally!

AIM HIGH has been officially selected to screen at this years Calgary Horror Con, Canada’s first and largest Convention dedicated to Horror!! Talk about exciting…I wonder if I can manage to find a way to go!!??

Congratulations Daniel, and congrats to all the rest of the AIM HIGH Team!

WHO ELSE HERE LOVES HORROR MOVIES AS MUCH AS ME?????? Please comment below! 🙂

Frustration

Don’t you just love when you get involved in something that at first you do just for fun, then you decide you want to become more serious about it?  YES, me too!!

Don’t you just hate it when there are obstacles that make it harder to progress? YEAH, me too!!

I have been studying Muay Thai for about 2.5 years now. I have gone through periods of great growth, plateau periods, and periods where I start to decline due to injuries, being ill or bouts of depression.

I have just started coming out of a decline period…and its so frustrating that my work schedule doesn’t allow me to do any of my instructor’s evening classes. So, I am limited to one weekday and one weekend day. If I can at least stay consistent in those two classes for 1-2 months I know I will be able to grow in MT again. But I know that in April I am going away for one weekend. And I have also learned, that if I take one Saturday a month where I don’t do much of anything and just relax and do self-care, everything else becomes that much better.

I also really want to start learning Jujitsu, but it’s really hard to find a school that has the most convenient location and schedule together which matches with my work  availability.

All that fits my schedule now is boxing. This could be good to learn too, so I may have to go that route for now.

I guess it’s just a matter of being patient, and when a schedule change in my work life opens up, I immediately will jump on the chance to fit something in that I want.

A few months ago, I had a schedule change on a Thursday evening…but the change still wasn’t allowing for the class start time (6pm i think) for my instructor’s Thursday night Muay Thai class. That class started too early still. But I took the chance to bring back my Flamenco Dancing, because that class starts at 8pm;  allows me to still get there.

Oh well. As long as I get to do the things I love everything will get better. I should be grateful I can even take part in things that require me to use my body in different high intensity ways!!

WOOHOOO!!! 🙂
