Are you Unapologetically Strong? - A Little Alytude | A Little Alytude

Are you Unapologetically Strong?

Recently, I was asked to share what makes me “unapologetically strong” – and, at that moment, I had to seriously question if I really was.

And what that even means. What does it mean to you? How are you strong? Unapologetically?

This can mean many different things to many people — and everyone’s goal is going to be different, whether it’s taking a leap of personal faith, trying a career change, going on a nutritious journey, moving out of your comfort zone…

This campaign is related to a contest being hosted on the Degree Women Facebook page, inviting women to share their own unique and inspiring Unapologetically Strong stories and goals.

I think the obvious choice right now would be to share my story of having almost died and still grabbing my blackberry and a friend’s MiFi to do work from the ICU as I was still receiving blood transfusions.

At the time that felt like strength…but I realize now, a big part of it was actually fear. Fear of “disappearing” — fear of becoming irrelevant, of being forgotten.

It’s a fear I’ve often struggled with.

But I can tell you what I think made me strong. When, after six months of being sick and unable to do pretty much anything, I finally was given the go-ahead to slowly resume normal life activities. I started yoga the very next day, and gave up white flour and white sugar just a few weeks later. I’ve started to add more interesting – whether it’s Zumba, Pilates, or a kick-ass body shred workout, I’m working hard — every day- to be a better, stronger (and smaller) me. Figure the universe decided to keep me around, I may as well maximize the opportunity to my fullest potential!

You guys, the reason for this post being TODAY, is today is the day Degree is kicking off a fab contest on the Degree Women Facebook page — the contest asks women to share their own unique and inspiring Unapologetically Strong stories and goals. What are YOUR personal challenges? You can win all sorts of amazing prizes from Degree Women (even possibly $5,000 to spend on your own major life goal!)

This is a sponsored post from One2One Nework and Degree Women. I received product and incentives. All opinions stated are my own.

Did you know you can flat iron your clothes?

Totally! Chances are you are a real grownup and own an iron. Or you are like me...and don't. Either way,...
