The Only Perception You Should Care

The way people perceive us doesn’t always = reality. 

Different groups will perceive you differently. 

In certain groups in the industry I’m perceived as someone who doesn’t take lifting seriously, and I’ve been reminded my job is to drive fitness. 

In other groups I’m perceived as someone who takes lifting and getting people strong too seriously, and I’ve been reminded that my job is to make things fun. 

I used to care so much about what people in the industry thought about me, I let it impact my gym’s website and content.

My 20’s Are Over

This year I learned vacation-Lucy is someone I can always be. 

In the past, when I went on vacation, I was a completely different person. 

I was more joyful because in that moment I didn’t have the mental endless to-do list running through my head. 

I felt grateful for mother nature. I spent more time admiring my surroundings because I was usually in a touristy place like a national park or tropical destination
