I compete in the NPC… It is my meditation, my medicine, my passion & how I release stress

Congratulations to my beautiful friend Anya Zaya & all the competitors this past weekend who pushed themselves to greatness at John Lindsay’s NPC California State Championships Show. Anya  took 2nd place & had the best attitude about her placing.  She stayed in a place of gratitude knowing she came in at her best.  I was shocked because I  thought she was going to win 1st place and she took home 2nd.  I experienced some emotional  for me as well it brought up emotions in me from competing in the NPC for years, always thinking I’m at my best and still not earning my Pro Card..  The best advise I can give you is remember that The placing is not always in your control but they way we feel & celebrate it is. So instead of letting the mind take us on a negative roller coaster of  thoughts like: why you didn’t get first place, what team you should be on, how your legs where to big or your hair and makeup were off, focus on all the positive accomplishments you achieved to get on stage to shine your light and the new friends you met along the way.

This was a great reminder of why I compete in the NPC bikini competitions .  I Compete because it bring me to higher levels in all areas of my life. I  compete because I LOVE to workout.  It is my meditation, my medicine, my passion & one of the ways I release stress.   If I get my pro card one day that will be so cool. Until then,  I will continue to teach & inspire others to connect with their highest self by living a healthy life and working out in ways they love. .   I really had to remind myself that this is my hobby, not my life!  The only competition is myself.  I will stay in a place of gratitude & joy  reminding myself of all my accomplishments in all areas of my life when I feel good in my skin and truly LOVE my body.
