I have been struggling with encouragement lately. I wonder sometimes if I ever encourage someone too much or maybe I am not doing enough to encourage them. I also find myself wondering if I am encouraging them to get healthy but only in the physical aspect, could I do more for their spiritual health, too? 

When I use the words "them", "someone", "they", etc.. I am not just talking about my family and close friends I am referring to everyone to I come in contact with on a daily basis. I work on a college campus so I encounter many faces throughout my day, not always the exact same ones each day. 

There seems to be no exact answer to any of my questions. For this Type A girl that's annoying, ha! I do hope that every day I make someone think just a little harder about their spiritual walk or their fitness journey. That's not to say I am not on a perfect path toward either but I am trying! I'm giving it my all and I give him praise throughout the highs and lows. I'm facing each struggle with a smile (even a cracked smile some days) because I know in the end God will bring me through it to a better place. 

As the above picture states "Encouragement is the fuel on which hope runs." I will work harder to be that fuel for others every day! You never know when someone might need that extra little push. 

Here's a few more of my favorite quotes: 

A little side note: for many who follow me on Facebook you may have seen yesterday's post that I shared from Prayfit titled "The Three R's". If you haven't read this yet I strongly recommend that you do. God gave us these bodies to take care of to the best of our ability. That doesn't just mean physically either! Happy reading :- )

  2. Mitzi,

    I really enjoyed your blog and I wanted to email you but I didn't find your address. I started a company in 2006 called Gracie's Gear ( where we sold sports bra's and tanks to women with a patented zipper pouch. In 2008 I was diagnosed with cervical cancer and a few months following, my daughter developed an infection in her eye.
    Long story short, I was thrilled to come across your blog. I wanted to in-turn, share something I'm doing right now.

    I'm on Kickstarter trying to kickstart my company. My fight with cancer leaded me to shut my company down. But with the help of friends, fans, and family I'm trying to make a comeback.

    I hope you enjoy our video and maybe feel compelled to share.

    Thanks Mitzi! Take Care,
