Just a quick hello to all of my Keep the Faith listeners out there – thanks for being part of the community of contagious encouragement.
I am proud to be an educator and consultant for Beautycounter, a B-Corp company on a mission to get safer products into the hands of everyone. The lack of regulation in the personal care and cosmetic industry is astounding and it is harming our health in very serious ways. We need more voices to join up on our mission. If you want to put your passion to purpose while being generously compensated, then I would love to start a conversation with you about what it means to be involved in the #saferbeauty tribe that is Beautycounter. Join the movement of #betterbeauty and message me via email to make your voice really resonate for a cause. Shop for your own Beautycounter collection at www.beautycounter.com/trishblackwell

LET’S RISE UP
First, when have you risen up? Do you have an opportunity to do that right now? Sometimes we are called to rise up because of the oppression of others and sometimes we rise because of our own self-oppression, it doesn’t matter the source, what matters is what do choose to do – will you wait or will you rise?
Hidden eating disorder and insecurity
Crushing addiction to perfectionism
Scarcity mindset thinking
Raped by a stranger
Small thinking and self-limiting thoughts
Now, I rose, I rise and I will continue to rise >
Healing and body confidence
Worth and peace
Most amazing husband and relationship
Healing and gratitude – rock bottom revelations – no more fear in life
Big thinking and a desire to live to the fullest, whatever it takes
Rising up is speaking up, showing up and standing up for that which matters deep in your heart of hearts. It is fighting for yourself, your dignity and for the development of your own story and it is the fighting for the life, love and freedom in the lives of others through your contribution.
QUOTES ON RISING UP:
What defines us is how well we rise after falling.
Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.
–Ralph Waldo Emerson
Rock bottom because the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.
– J.K. Rowling
Integrity is choosing courage over comfort; choosing what is right over what is fun, fast or easy; and choosing to practice our values rather than simply professing them.

LISTENER OF THE EPISODE:
I downloaded one of your running apps about four years ago and I started to get into it one summer of college, although I never thought of myself as a runner. It motivated me that summer, I started following you on Facebook, and guess sent you a friend request. Fast forward a couple months, school starts again, work, and everyday distractions and noises of life started up again. Academically I thrived, physically I started to become a well rounded individual. Lol
Fast forward a couple years, I graduated with honors having obtained multiple degrees, graduated the police, and corrections academy and am working full time plus in a law enforcement career. I work out regularly, but have just been maintaining the status quo without much diet control.
I did enough running to keep cardio up a bit, but it was just like any other chore. You did plant a seed in my head with the app, that now had long since been deleted due to storage capacity and lack of recent use, that I was a runner. I did not believe, and even rejected the notion but it would continue to echo.
Finally, I apprehensively signed up for a 5k to test myself and encourage me to focus more on cardio. The internal battle: “What am I doing? I am not a runner, those people are crazy.” And “I was told once, that as long as I’m out there running that I am a runner.”
Well, yesterday was the run. I had taken the day of, and after the run, off way in advance but had gotten switched to nightshift 2 weeks previously due to someone having put in their 2 weeks and shift staffing needs. I worked from 7PM-7AM, went back to my place exhausted from another long shift. I changed into shorts, t. and a thin sweater, and headed towards the run.
The internal battle continue to rage a bit, “You’re a fool. It’s freezing, you just worked all night and need some rest.” but I was already determined to run the thing that the demon of doubt had little sway.
I ran the race, and finished in the middle of the pack. The last mile I thought I had a good pace (for me) going, but an elderly lady passed me by like I was standing still. After much contemplation, I realize that she must be half cheetah! Lol
I found all the other runners to be extremely encouraging and supportive, and found the run to be very motivating and accepting of and for everybody. The scenery in the state park was gorgeous, and I found the entire run to be quite exhilarating.
You planted a seed in my mind years ago that I was a runner. I rejected it, fought it, and tried to take it out but it slowly started to take root.
Couple years after even deleting the source of the seed, the roots continued to slowly spread.
Finally, I gave in and I ran.
Soon as I got home, I signed up for another 5k come March. I re-downloaded the 5k app, purchased the 10k app today.
I guess I’m sending you this message to say thank you and that you are making a difference. An encouraging message you sent came across me about 4 years ago, and though I did not realize it at the time you made an impact and planted a seed.
Because of you, and your motivation I can honestly say, without any doubt, that I am a runner.
