Since people in social media tend to see only the successes, because that’s what people choose to post, here’s what really happens behind the curtain: Today I received 3 rejection emails from universities around the U.S. for coaching jobs I have applied for. I have lost count of the number of total rejections I have received in the last few months. I am not posting this to get pity or for people to say, “It’s their loss,” which I already know it is, but rather to be transparent and to show that even successful people get rejections and have failures. The reason this happens is because we cannot control the decisions that others make. All we can do is show people the value of what we have to offer, show how it benefits them, and hope they can see the value. But oftentimes, they do not, so we need to find another way and another path.
Okay, my big news!!!
Although this may not be “huge” for some, for me, it’s a pretty big milestone.
You are now OFFICIALLY looking at the first spandex-clad CEO that I’ve ever worked for
Yup, ME! ♀️
Just wrapped up the FINAL few pieces of paperwork to become FLY Fitness, INCORPORATED & have myself now listed as “CEO” in the eyes of the IRS #IsThisRealLife #OfficiallySelfEmployed ✨
I even get my first paycheck from MYSELF from my brand new payroll system tomorrow and the best part about it?? I pretty much did it all by myself Not sure if that’s awesome or frightening #WTFisABylawAnyway
But the truth is I knew NOTHING about running a business or using social media, let alone being a MF CEO when I started this 3 years ago. But I believe NOW more than ever, everything in life is figure-out-able if you have the passion & drive to achieve your goals
Who woulda thunk that a year from leaving my big fancy corporate job, I’d actually become an official CEO! I guess you really can be successful using social media instead of climbing the corporate ladder ♀️
Now, I gotta get back to work before my boss sees me posting this ✌ #Jk #IAmTheBossOfMe

One day, 3 men died and went to heaven. “Religion?” God’s secretary asked the first man.
“Jewish,” the man replied.
“Okay, go to room 23, but be very quiet when you go past room 8,” the secretary said.
“Religion?” he asked the second man.
“Go to room 10, but be very quiet when you go past room 8.”
“Religion?” he asked the third man.
“Go to room 71, but be very quiet when you go past room 8.”
“Why must I be quiet when I go past room 8?” the man asked.
The secretary replied, “Oh, the Catholics are in room 8, and they think that they are they are the only ones here.”

Do you have a child that struggles with anxiety? Want to connect with other parents that are in the same boat? Please join us! Registration is free. I recently had a question on whether or not there is a catch – a hidden sales pitch somewhere, etc. I assure you that this evening is truly about connecting. I just don’t think that people are accustomed to anything being truly free. I also think that there is true magic in connecting with others topic by topic and that is why we created LifeClub. You can pretty much say that I’m addicted to seeing magic happen in other people. Come feed my addiction LOL. ❤️
In 1964, the Hollies performed at the Paramount Theater in NYC, their first American gig. They and nine other mostly unknown bands were backing up the headliner, Little Richard. Here’s what Graham Nash had to say about him:
“An incredible showman. He’d pound that piano as if it were a tough piece of meat and throw his head back and wail. And that band of his kicked ass, especially his guitar player, a young, skinny kid with fingers out to there.
One night I was standing in the wings as Richard came off the stage and he was livid, his eyes bugging out like a madman, screaming like a motherfucker at that poor kid. “Don’t you ever do that again! Don’t you ever upstage Little Richard!” They got in the elevator, slammed the gate, and I could still hear him ten floors above, taking this kid’s head off. “You hear me, motherfucker! Fuck you—playing your guitar with your teeth!”
He was called Jimmy James then, but you don’t need me to tell you it was Jimi Hendrix. Probably the only guy who could steal the spotlight from Richard.
~Graham Nash, “Wild Tales: A Rock and Roll Life”
I wasn’t feeling fantastic today, but my soul NEEDED to go to church. I’m always happy when I go and always get a few nuggets that speak to me. God is good!
Do not lose your faith because of the people around you, but build a strong relationship with Jesus Christ. Don’t look around, look up!”
“It is never too late to look up to Jesus Christ. His arms are always open to you. There are generations before us and after us depending on us to follow Christ so that we can be an eternal family of God.”
(Elder Yoon Hwan Choi)
Definitivamente la amistad es uno de los tesoros que mas hay que cuidar, si bien todos tenemos “muchos amigos” al final solo contamos con aquellos que en realidad nos conocen y aprecian de verdad, y que apesae de tantas ocupaciones y distracciones sabemos que estan en las buenas malas y peores, que te rescatan en momentos que sientes morir tanto fisicamente como emocionalmente. Tengo la fortuna de contar con un AMIGO extraordinario MT Lucas Angel Mendoza quien me ha dado muchisimo mas de lo que El mismo cree, y quien por hoy sufre mi corazon al ver que sufre sin yo poder hacer nada…pero tambien que sabe que estoy cada segundo a su lado y no lo soltare…atesoremos a nuestros amigos y no pasemos por alto las inquietudes que puedan tener, estresemonos juntos, riamos, lloremos, hablemos con verdad, enorgullezcamonos por lo que son y logran, sepan perdonar y solo asi podras decir un dia …. cuento con un AMIGO EXTRAORDINARIO
Outsiders vs Insiders
“The revelation of “[a] God humiliated even unto the cross,” as Pascal put it, flies in the face of what most Jews of Jesus’ time, and of what most people throughout history, have expected God to be. In this light, we can discern the thematic centrality of the cross in Jesus’ many teachings that reverse common expectations about God.
For example, few people in Jesus’ day would have expected God to “justify” a tax collector who was too ashamed to “even look up to heaven” (Lk 18:13) instead of the righteous Pharisee who fasted twice a week, gave a tenth of all he earned to God, and thanked God he was not like “robbers, evildoers, adulterers” or “this tax collector” (vss. 11-2). Similarly, few if any expected God to welcome into his kingdom “tax collectors and prostitutes” before religious leaders whom everyone held in high esteem (Mt 21:31; cf., Lk 7:38-50). Indeed, because the God he revealed was so contrary to what people expected, Jesus repeatedly taught that those whom most assumed were “outsiders” would find themselves “inside,” while those whom most assumed were “insiders” would find themselves “out” (e.g., Mt 7:21-3; 22:1-9; 25:31-46). All of these anticipate the great reversal of the cross, where God entered into total solidarity with “outsiders” by becoming a crucified “outsider.”
