If I told you I almost quit would you believe me ? What if told you that at some point I had given it all up had literally withdrawn and fell into my cocoon just to figure it all up.
They were days I went to work out super early, with the eagerness and focus for the particular set aside part of the body In the wee morning hours but 15 mins into my workout I just felt like nah I can’t do this anymore packed my stuff went home. What actually was in my mind was a lot of conflicted issues from personal to social to just about every tiny bit details of my life.
I have never felt all this conflicted emotions all at once in my adult life , they were days I questioned so much , with every bit of question kept on draining me and they were days I tried so hard to encourage myself back up into focus into my body goals sometimes my body heard me and we concentrated which only lasted 30mins.
The better days I gave my best with one hour being our maximum. One day out of the blues One of Photographer friend send me a message via whassup ” Congratulations Priscillah on your nomination”, I literally laughed so loud with the “wtf” coming out of my mouth .I thought it was a joke i have never been nominated on anything in my entire life..
I didnt think much about this but after sometime I was like it would be interesting to follow it up.Indeed I followed it up, it was such an honor to be aside people that I looked up to with the likes of Nikky Nagwala And Alvin Lee.
In the midst of everything I got this nagging feeling to push myself one step at a tike ubtill I felt i could walk it all over again.The race to urge everyone to vote for me was up though at times personally I kept forgetting and get this I wasnt even rooting for myself.
Come the eventful day I settled for a dress that held all the sentimental memories amd value, this being the second time wearing it after 5 years for special occasion.As always I was busy chit chatting left right and centre such that ahen they called out the winner for a few seconds I was glued to my chair .
This award did come at a time when darkness was all over me,that was a dawn sigh, amd it realigns my belief of ” No matter the size of your audience keep playing”. You might feel like what you are doing has no impact you will be surprised the number of people you touch.Keep doing what you doing in due time it will pay off.I dedicate this award to each and every soul that works tirelessly everyday to better there lives in every capacity of their lives .
I was just doing what I had fallen in love with to keep my body in a heathly mode, in a long time never would I have imagined it will culminate into an award, I feel honored and humbled all rolled in one.I walked off with fitness Model of the year 2017, am in tears truly.Special shout out to the organizers , planners and everyone whose input to the event made it a success.
PS : Currently back to full mode training but off season, looking forward to a great season ahead. Its not easy , it will not be easy but I look forward to breaking stereotypes, societal norms and breaking barriers in all that I intend to keep my hands on.
Live Your Dream.
