Meet gorgeous Amanda! She drove all the way from Red Deer to partake in celebration as the #LoveYourselfChallenge came to an end. As you’ll find out from my chat with Amanda, while the challenge has ended, she walked away with a valuable takeaway that she continues to apply on daily basis.
But first let’s talk about summer days and vacations.
What do you like the most about summer?
I love the sun and anything outdoors. If I can get to the mountains, even better. Honestly, I am one of those people that actually gets grumpy if I am indoors on a beautiful day. So give me some sun and nature and I am one happy lady!
What’s your favourite vacation story?
Hmmm that’s a tough one. I love travelling. I don’t know if I have one favourite story, but usually the best moments have happened when I got off the ‘gringo’ trail and immersed myself into the culture. Experienced the food, talked/lived with the people.
You’re currently reading …
Nothing 🙁 I am waiting for “Eat. Move. Sleep.” by Tom Rath. Hoping it’s a good one!
Your desert island must have is …
Besides food? Because that’s my 1st must have, but after that………hmmmmm I’m probably set if I have sun and the beach.
What’s your personal or professional motto?
I have a couple I guess, one is “I can do all things through Christ because He gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13, and after this Love Yourself challenge, I have been working on “being vulnerable and showing up.”
Who is a strong female who has influenced you in your lifetime and how did she change your outlook on life?
Man I am not giving very specific answers here, but I would say the women that are changing my outlook on life right now are those genuine women who truly love and encourage those around them. The women who do not strive after that typical stereotype of beauty, but seek to grow, learn, become stronger, and encourage those around them. I do really enjoy a lot of Brene Brown’s work and her books kind of started this perspective change for me.
What’s your secret beauty weapon? Sleep and a good mascara!
Thank you for being real, Amanda!
