Invest In Yourself: You Can’t Get Any Water From a Dry Well

This post came across my news feed on Facebook and I immediately shared it with my friends. It resonated with me personally because I know what it feels like to wake up and go to work each day and give 8 hours to a company and come home feeling drained of energy and peace.

I have been in a place where I was too tired to work on my goals due to lack of inspiration. All because I was giving 8 hours of my day, 5 days a week to a company that was leaving me empty and deprived.

Once I realized that I was in a place of disaster, I proclaimed that something had to change…

Never again will I ever work for a company that does not invest in me.

Never again will I ever work for a company that drains my energy.

Never again will I ever work for company that disurbs my inner peace.

Never again will I ever work for a company that hinders me from focusing on my own goals.

Never again will I ever work for a company that leaves me feeling uninspired.

I don’t know about you by I have so many goals and projects that I have committed too and I refuse to let anything or anyone stand in the way. I don’t make excuses for myself, because I refuse to be the roadblock in my own path.

I am sharing this post with my readers because this is a message that someone needs to hear. Don’t go another day without setting some time aside to focus on you and your goals. We make time for what we want to make time for. If you working on your goals does not fit into your schedule you obviously don’t want to achieve that success you claim to be chasing after.

Time is the greatest investment you can make within yourself. If you are not investing time in yourself you can’t expect to produce results or greatness. You can’t get any water from a dry well.


Fitness Journey

Started on Instagram- Now, I’m Here

I am sitting here typing away on my laptop thanks to the encouragement of my husband, Andrew.

Sitting here… trying to contemplate what to write about for my initial blog post. Well… I suppose I should share with you how the thought of a blog came about. I was encouraged by Andrew to expand my methods of reaching people on their fitness journey. As my followers grew on instagram, it became evident that people are interested in my personal journey as they travel on their own.

On Instagram I share my life: morning routines, meal planning, meal ideas, results, motivation, etc. I have received a lot of feedback and engagement from followers. While, instagram is a great method of reaching people it is limited regarding posts and details. Blogging offers more options for documenting my journey and offering more information to others.

I plan to use my blog to share recipes, fitness plans, motivation, personal development, and health/wellness related posts. I encourage every reader to comment on each blog post as we grow a community here at Fit Life with Erica (FLWE).
