Today I am waking up still having problems processing everything that happened this weekend at Team Universe. Not only was it an emotional roller coaster, but it ended in a way better than I could have ever imagined. I NEVER in a million years thought I could win an Overall Title along with my pro card. So, yes, it will take time to set in that I am now a professional athlete in the IFBB, but as a great mentor once told me titles do not define who you are.
My daily actions and those I impact during my lifetime define who I am. I will still wake up early to get to my current med school rotations (internal medicine), my number one concern will be not killing anyone. My second concern will be doing my best as a student. I’ll scramble to prep the rest of my food, take care of my puppy, get to the gym, etc. It’s the SAME routine.
THIS is why I believe it’s important to base my feelings/emotions on how each day goes. One at a time. One step closer to goals. After all NOTHING comes on our schedule. Enjoy the ride because although the destination sounds great you might miss the beautiful scenery!
