THIS HAS BEEN A LONG TIME COMING!!
We needed a Skinny Confidential Manifesto, right?!
Basically, this is a collection of iPhone notes that I’ve collected over the past two years to compile a full on TSC manifesto.
This is like a new age, 2015 updated female manifesto. It’s not over the top, just real deal, honest tips that are reality, ya know? These are things I would tell my daughter ( if I had one ), things that inspire me, or things that speak to me.
Ok, so lemme break the manifesto down for ya:
♡ I AM BALANCED.
Duh. If you read the blog, a main priority is balance. You may have a glass of champagne on a Monday, but Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, you’re drinking green juice & walking a little extra.
♡ Eat clean, work hard, enjoy a glass of rose occasionally, & break a sweat daily.
I feel like this is just self explanatory. But ya, these are important daily reminders.
♡ Sweat like a pig to look like a fox.
I break a sweat everyday. You wanna look like a fox? Work for it. Sweat, move, add weights, go a little further. You get my drift.
♡ Be the best version of yourself.
This is basically the overall message of this blog. It’s what the blog is based off & definitely the foundation of TSC. Everyday I work towards this goal: BEING THE BEST VERSION OF ME!!
♡ Green juice, family, friends, bubbly, Pilates, community, love, style, life.
Just the basics guys. Pilates= more donuts. Suit up!
♡ If you chase two rabbits you will only catch one.
Focus on your niche. Your goal. Zoom in on what you’re good at & don’t be all over the place. Find one thing you love & do it fucking well. DON’T CHASE 500 MILLION RABBITS.
♡ Focus on your goal.
♡ Relax…let go…BE.
I need to remind myself of this daily. I’m learning how to ‘be,’ remember? It’s hard, dude!
Refer to this post for the importance of this word. THIS IS MY WORD. I love it.
♡ Do a little each day to help grow the bigger picture. Move mountains by carrying stones.
So true. Start slow. Little baby steps to make big strides. How are you making small steps daily towards your goal?
♡ Be humble, grateful, & loving.
It’s difficult not to let ego get in the way. Staying humble is so important. No one like an egotistical asshole, right?
♡ Stay sassy, savvy, & chic.
Hell yes. Keep it sassy, BB’s.
♡ Nourish & heal your body from the inside out. Keep it clean.
Instead of worrying about things to put on your body, worry about what you’re putting IN your body. Heal yourself from the inside out. Clean foods, drinks, air, water, etc.
♡ Bitch, I’m fab.
Enough said? Confidence is key.
♡ Stay hungry.
This one is HUGE FOR ME. The second you’re not hungry, you’re bored. Keep yourself hungry to learn, live, & love.
♡ Give back.
How do you give back? Why should I work my ass off if I can’t give back? Giving back to the community in some way is so important. Find a cause you love & stick with it.
♡ Bust ass to achieve your goals.
No one else is going to bust their own ass to achieve YOUR goals. Get to the point where your goals are reality. Work hard, play hard. Hey, girl boss.
♡ I create my own opportunities.
And finally, the most important of the The Skinny Confidential manifesto: YOU CREATE YOUR FUTURE. YOU CREATE YOUR SURROUNDINGS. YOU CREATE YOUR LIFE. Write a good one. No one else is going to do it for you.
How are you creating your own opportunities? Weigh in.
