Growing with the flow
I didn’t know that day what I know now. Read on...
This was 4 years ago and it was my second or third time being cast in a P90X video and before ever being cast in PiYo.
That day I was over the moon elated (and equally humbled) to be there for what was going to be the-first-and-only ALL FEMALE CAST.
Even though I was relatively new to the scene I’d already learned that these two day filming experiences were total exhaustion fueled by adrenaline and excitement. Usually on the flights home the endorphins would crash and I’d find myself tearful from a combination of fatigue and gratitude.
What I didn’t know about those two days is that these two women @kamjamz and @bekahjjackson and I would carve out precious time out of our insanely busy lives to talk daily. What I didn’t know about the Girl Power round is that my paycheck was cool and a business trip to LA was cool but the real money was to the pocketbook of my heart. Walked on set for a job. Walked off set with Pennsylvania and New York best friends.
Our Master Trainer community was (and is) incredible. Spread out across the countries 🇺🇸 🇬🇧 🇨🇦 but unified in passionate, purpose-filled lifestyles. I don’t talk much about the closure of BBLIVE operations. I only posted once about it. But I’m grateful to have been a part of a beautiful community of Master Trainers-so many of whom have stayed so close knit 🧶 and connected. That era was full of opportunities for professional and personal growth and I’m forever grateful for the 6 year ride.
What I know today that I didn’t know then is that the best things aren’t the accolades they are the people.
🤟🏻 All my love.
