At first glance, the death, devastation, and destruction in so much of the world seems like (and is) an absolute tragedy.

No one wanted this.

We would wish it away if we could.

But we can’t.


And therefore, we must choose to seek the good in it.

Better yet… the GOD in it.


Maybe it’s more intimate time in prayer and dependency on God, more time with your family, more focus on a healthy routine, rethinking what you want for your future, using being laid off to build that business you’ve been dreaming of…

Whatever the case may be, there are amazing things that are coming from this whole experience that not one of us ever saw coming.

My rockstar coach Camelia said the other day that “2020 is a great year.”  It is and it can be with the right perspective, attitude, and intentional focus on the opportunity IN the obstacles.


There are new, incredible possibilities opening for you if you choose to look for them.

For me, it’s been the challenge of being a better leader to my Puravida Fitness Family. They needed a better leader and a voice of hope, more than just a fitness coach or business owner.  I recognized that and put my best foot forward to support them in leadership in different ways.

On top of that, I am finally launching my FIT Ministries Leadership & Lifestyle program for ambitious legacy-driven men of faith. It was birthed in my mind almost 3 years ago and it took the circumstances of the stresses that men were going through to overcome my fears and excuses to JUST GO!!!

Yeah, I still fight fear and excuses just like anyone. But it was a push from God to make it happen.

And for that, I’m incredibly grateful.


Finding gratitude in everything, even the ugly things, keeps us sane and moving forward.

It’s a choice we get to make.

I’d love to hear from you on this if you’d reply and let me know.

In His Strength,
