Sometimes challenges you face in life help you to find what really makes you shine, on the inside & out. I’ll never forget stepping foot into The Dailey Method studio in Elmhurst. It was like all the stress of the world & my parents recent divorce melted away and the positive environment gave me that safe place to be all I ever wanted to be. Joyful. It was here that I felt empowered & uplifted in times that felt so broken & confusing. It was here I made positive and valuable connections with people where I left craving more intention & purpose in my life.

If you’re reading this & we haven’t met personally, well I hope we do, one day. But if you didn’t catch on social media yet I am a born optimist, seriously. I have a tendency to look on the bright side even when faced with challenges in my personal life. I personally believe that’s the best way to live because bad things are bound to get thrown our way. It’s a strength of mine I love to carry and share it with the universe because I believe everyone can use more positivity in their own life. In High School teachers used to stop and ask, “How are you so happy? “You’re always smiling.” As Lady Gaga would say, “baby I was born this way!” haha! 😆 It’s partially due to growing up in a divorce lifestyle (another post for another day.) Divorce somewhat teaches you that hardships make you stronger and the best we can do is stay positive & use it to better ourself. I wouldn’t change a thing in my life because it’s built my character and I hope you can walk away from this post feeling more confident about your upbringing or life & knowing that you can shape who you want to become.

Remember: You don’t have to allow anything or anyone to drag you down.

But hey, let’s bring this post back around to why I really wrote it. I wanted to tell you about this happy place of mine, called The Daily Method in Elmhurst. It encompasses everything with good vibes and will turn a bad day into a good one. If you don’t believe me, give it a try! You’re in luck if you’ve read this far because GUESS WHAT!

That’s all for now. I’m super excited to offer you this and hope you like it. Be sure to tag me in your sweat sesh @SociallySteph on the gram & all socials.

Ps. TDM & I go way back. From working the front desk in College to renting space to host my very own work out, ELEV8, to continuing to be a class member. The more I stay connected to my passions with fitness & self empowerment the better I feel. If you ever need a barre bestie, I’m there!!

🌈 Outdoor work outs here would be fun EVERYDAY✨ Something I have been committed to improving is 👉🏼MOVING MORE! 👈🏼 Especially because my work requires so much desk time, if you’re reading this and raising your hand ✋🏼high like, MEEE TOO!! You’re not alone. Walking is something that always helps to clear my mind or inspire thought.

Today I was thinking how important it is to surround yourself with people that uplift you. You should think about the people you’re spending time with the same way you think about what you eat and how you’re exercising. This is so important to note because the people in your life can either INSPIRE you or DRAIN you – and the choice is yours on what you allow. Finding people who can help build you up or brighten your EVERYDAY is not always easy to come by & sometimes you really do have to be your own cheerleader. 📣 I still struggle with this every single day!!

Surrounding yourself with good energy, ambition, positivity and laughter, all makes a big difference in your life. You’ll be less stressed and find more joy in daily things. The energy we have each day is so precious!!

Remember, we tend to absorb the actions of those we spend a lot of time with. It is no doubt that by constantly being around impactful and bright souls, you too will shine bright! ☀️
