Fearless Friday

Where there is desire 
desire can be anything. what do you desire? what do you want to achieve?

There is gonna be a flame

the flame is that passion that drives you, your motivation, 

Where there is a flame

and when you want some really, really bad

Someone's bound to get burned

getting burned can be fear, disappointment, facing obstacles,
the nay-sayers, the challenges. Possibly failure...

But just because it burns

Doesn't mean you're gonna die
keep going, keep moving forward, never quit-it won't kill you!

You've gotta get up and try

keep moving forward
never quit if you really want it
fight for it

Lyrics from TRY by P!nk

It does not matter what that "Flame" it following a dream? or reaching a big goal?
Be fearless in your pursuit.

*TriBling* {a chance to win & a discount!}


This September while I was at the Rev 3 Cedar Point race, I took notice of a vendor set up across from the Timing Tent where I was working. What initially caught my eye was a cool-snazzy aero-wheel mirror (oh yeah!) so on a quick break, I had to check it out. 

The company that was set up there was TriBling. So what is TriBling?I love the story behind the brand and considering my own personal journey into the world of triathlon, I can appreciate the history.


In 2007, I made changes in my life to find balance, purpose and happiness.  That's when my journey with triathlon began. I signed up for 2008 Ironman Wisconsin.  I'd never completed a triathlon, didn't own a bike and hadn't truly swam since my Red Cross swim lessons as a youth.  I fell in love with the sport, my fellow triathletes and the way of life.  Tri it's what I do, it's who I am.
Triathlon comes down to the small decisions you make each day, the courage to chase your dreams and the support of those you love.  

I created the TriBling designs to represent the elements of triathlon and the raw connection with each discipline.  
Gliding through the water, 

Spinning the gears of the bike; and 
Pounding the tread of the shoes.  

It's subtle, it's raw and it's strong.
Transition Bead
...and it was downright beautiful! I loved the design immediately and thought of my dearest friend, Dawn and the upcoming Holidays. Dawn has one of those Pandora bracelets and I am always on the lookout for unique beads for her (hopefully she is not reading this blog post!) and I thought this would be perfect for her! 

I was also very drawn to the T1 necklace! I wear a set of miniature "dog tags" with the words BELIEVE, I WAS BORN TO DO THIS and I AM NOT AFRAID that have very special meaning to me. So to find a piece of jewelry that "speaks to me" like my tags do, it has to be special. 
and this was special...

I am most thankful for her
God certainly blessed me

My Princess, My Lola.
She makes me smile daily. 
(the apple did not fall far from the tree, did it?!)

I am thankful for family and friends, near and far!

I am thankful I get to do this

Life is not about THINGS.
It's about moments, 
the people you love, 
finding joy & being happy

DO not-for a minute-dwell on what you do not have. Instead, take a moment to think of all you DO have. 

Happy Thanksgiving 

having a heart of gratitude is the true spirit of Thanksgiving, which is the perfect opportunity to thank everyone who has impacted your life in one form or another and lend a helping hand to those less fortunate.
