I Am Under Construction…It Is A GREAT Thing!

I have discovered that everything in life, jobs, relationships, being alive, is always evolving and if I stay “static” or not moving in one area then everything eventually seems like it gets “stuck”. It becomes a force that is very hard to move forward.

The beginning of 2018 brought upon many incidents/accidents that have had me begin to re-evaluate much of what I have been working on.  Not like a problem, only that knowing when many challenges show up, sometimes it is like the universe’s way of saying “HELLO TAMMY!! Are you listening?”

The most prominent that started my year were 2 car accidents less than 2 month’s apart. Both times I was rear-ended and ended up with whiplash and concussions. The second time I was hit, my car that I just purchased less than 6 month’s prior to the accidents, it didn’t make it.

Being that I work primarily in the fitness industry this was very hard physically to see some of the limitations I was having after both accidents.  I had headaches regularly, my body was very sore constantly.  I would easily forget things I had just done or said in the first few weeks following these accidents. It was terribly frustrating at the time.

Thankfully, I know my body well and went directly to my chiropractor and medical doctor right after the accidents. I immediately got the support I needed and have bounced back extremely quickly so I can keep working doing what I love.

That being said, the accidents also opened something up for me. I realized I really had no back up plan if something were to happen that I didn’t “bounce back” again if something else were to happen. The question to myself was “If I am not able to dance anymore, then what?”

I realized this year that my passion is and always will be to support others in discovering what lights them up. Supporting others in finding the relationships they are looking for. Supporting people of all abilities to move and find their groove! Supporting others in making their dreams reality, whether it be fitness goals, relationships, financial, building businesses, creating extraordinary events, and so much more.

The company I have built, the Live OUT LOUD Movement, is so much more than just a fitness program based primarily in Zumba Fitness.

The Live OUT LOUD Movement is a LIFE MOVEMENT.

A place to take all that seems like heavy weights on our shoulders and discover the silver lining within them all to produce extraordinary results in the face of no agreement in life.

I truly believe that everything happens in our lives for a reason. Even all the “bad stuff” that I wish never happened. I see it as it had to happen to show me something that I couldn’t see was available before. In the moment, it never “feels” that way, however the true gift of this MOVEMENT is the opportunity to look more in-depth at what is happening and discover what I/we can’t see right away.  Discovering the knowledge that is hidden deep within what ails us to creating a strong and vibrant life that impacts ourselves and others by what is discovered!

I am in the process of rebuilding new aspects to the Live OUT LOUD Movement and new offerings over the next few months to really dive deep into what is possible through this company to help people in a unique way.

I hope you stick around to see what is next and how it all plays out. I will always continue to dance for as long as my body will let me, you can bet money on that and now is the time for me to take what I have built thus far and expand it far beyond where it is today!

EXCITING TIMES!

I'm under construction and loving it

Live Every Moment As If It Were Your Last!

Tomorrow marks one week since the tragic deaths at Sandy Hook elementary and the stabbings in China.  I see the posts, the news, the sadness in the community as well as around the world.  The experience is frightening that that could actually happen. It did.

My brother is the one who told me in an email he sent to all of our family, “Sending you all so much love and thinking of you after what happened in the US and china”. I had no idea what he was talking about. I hadn’t watched the news. I was going along in my perfect world not realizing what the rest of the world was dealing with.

This week I have been thinking about this tragedy a lot, as I am sure all of you have been too. I have been thinking about how many of us think there will always be tomorrow to get something done or to tell someone we love them.  The people killed at Sandy Hook don’t get a tomorrow to share with each other. They had up until that moment when it all ended. Their lives are forever remembered.  My prayers are with all the families.

In every upset that happens we get an opportunity to take something away from what happened. I personally am taking away the reminder that we have today and tomorrow may not be there so live each moment as if it were our last. Give up having to be right about something and making others wrong.  Being right makes no difference. Being willing to love with no boundaries, to share our thoughts and feelings with people we care about, that is what counts.  Even being willing to just be kind to those we don’t know. We all inhabit the same planet…let’s make it one worth living on!

I cannot tell you what tomorrow will bring….literally….tomorrow marks what they are “saying” is the “end of the world”, however, I can tell you that if we live every moment as if it were our last, we will know in our hearts we gave it all we had and we have no regrets.

On my desk I have a quote from Buddha “The trouble is YOU think YOU have TIME!”

Live with no regrets. Love with all your heart. Make the time to make a difference TODAY!download
