This week’s Beauty Detox Blogger Assignment topic is “Inspiration”
I find inspiration from nature, my family and other fit people like Tara and Kimberly but my life long inspiration has always been my Aunt Marlene. Yes, we have the same name. And no, that’s not why she’s my inspiration:)
If I could use one word to describe her, it would be “Amazing” Not only does she look amazing for her age, she is amazing.
My aunt is a mother of five children. That’s right. Five! Growing up, I saw her raise her children, be a good wife, work full-time, own a home at a young age, run marathons, stay super fit and always succeed at everything she did. I always thought she was perfect.
As a child, I loved going to her house and eating all the good food she had ( I liked to eat a lot back then) I enjoyed going to the park, the beach, shopping and working out with her.
What has inspired me most about my Aunt Marlene is her passion for Fitness. Being a busy mom, she always found the time to get her exercise in even if that meant running during her lunch hour. I wanted to be just like her.
As I child, I used to ask my mom why she named me after my aunt Marlene and she answered because she loved her sister so much and wanted to give her daughter that name. At the time, I still didn’t get it and wondered why I didn’t have my own name. Typical girl 🙂
My aunt has inspired me to do so much. She inspired me to be a good mom, a homeowner by the age of 23 and start by own personal training business by 30. She is always telling me how proud she is of me and how I can accomplish anything but it’s because of the inspiration and positive support she gave me at a young age that motivated me.
I would like to say how proud I am to be named after such a beautiful and inspirational person as my Aunt Marlene.
Thank you for reading.
