Hey there Amazons.  Long time no see.  It certainly has been awhile.

For our new friends who have fallen in love with the Spring Of Ann: Hi.  I’m Darlene.  I started UA almost years ago when I began the journey to becoming a trainer & wellness coach.  You haven’t seen me much because I’ve mostly had my head up my ass since February.

A lots been happening since the beginning of the year.  I became a certified sport and exercise Nutrition Coach.  Hiked the Grand Canyon and went to Vegas for the first time.  And Ann’s been knocking it out of the park with her EATS posts as she travels all over the US.

You know what I have not been doing a lot of?  Writing.  Not for Urban Amazon, and for little else as well.  My intention for UA this year had been serious expansion; but I miss the old forum.  I miss having a space where I just blew off whatever was on my mind that day regarding health, our bodies, other people’s thoughts on our bodies, life change, my own adventures, and whatever else seemed relevant.  In my desire to make UA into “something greater” I created a vacuum instead of a space.  When I sit down to write now I feel like my ideas “aren’t good enough” and quit with them before I’ve started.  The whole point of this space was to have a place to write – and now I’ve written myself out of it.

Yeah.  I know.  Silly self-doubting demons.

It’s my intention to take a few steps back mentally, and bring Urban Amazon back to where it was for me personally about a year ago.  Ann will (I HOPE!) keep posting her regular Friday EATS posts – I think everyone would be pissed at me if they stopped.  Hell, I’d be pissed at me… (unless she goes to grow her own, which I would support because I love her and want her to be happy, etc, etc).  But I’m planning for you to read more of me.  The return of Wisdom Wednesday, some more advice, thoughts on exercise, and ideas on the care and maintenance of yourself and those in your life.  You’ll probably see a resurgence of the old “this is the adventure I went on recently” posts.  I miss those.

That’s what’s up with me.  What’s up with you?

Just a reminder. . . #clearmindopenheart
When the Universe gives you what you needed, say "Thank You!" . . 2018 was a really challenging year. Personally. Professionally. Spiritually. One of the most important things I learned along the way was to stop questioning when I get what I need. Instead I express gratitude! . . Time and again I'd be presented with exactly the growth opportunity or essential thing I NEEDED to survive...and I'd question it! I'd doubt if it was the right choice or if I could pull it off 🤦‍♀️ - until it became so obvious that my doubts were foolish. I was right where I needed to be. . . For #transfomationtuesday share in the comments some gratitude for times you were given exactly what you needed! 💓💓 . . #dropthedoubt #motivation #anothergrowthopportunity #growandchange #gratitude #universalguidance #modernspirituality #thankyou #saythankyou
"Age" has never been my challenge. I don't mind getting older - I don't mind getting wiser, stronger, and more resilient 💪💜 = = My challenges have been negative self talk, the aftermath of bad decisions, and the frustration of not living up to my personal best. Cultivating a growth mindset and working on my relationship with myself has shifted all that. = = We are all a work in progress, and my work is certainly not done. May the next 10 years have the vision and challenges to teach me lessons I can't even imagine right now. = = #howharddidaginghityouchallenge #growthmindset #levelup #curlyhair #selftalk #positivity #positivevibepositivemind #coaching #coachmentality
Rest in peace, teacher of us all. 🙏💗🙏 #Repost @luna_alignment_yoga ・・・ Geeta S.

In which she shed a new light on yoga by adapting the yoga practice to answer the needs of women. 🙏🏻 She will remain a source of immense knowledge and everlasting inspiration. 🙏🏻
Thank you to everyone who helped make yesterday a truly magical birthday. I'm so fortunate to know I am loved, supported, and truly blessed. . . . 2018 was a huge year of challenges and growth, like nothing I've experienced before. I'm ready for you, 2019. Smarter, faster, and stronger than ever before. Let's see what we can accomplish. . . . #happybirthdaytome #ihaveamazingfriends #thankful
Growth is an essential human need. . . To progress. To change. . . Sometimes we need to look back down the path to see how far we've come. Today the past reached back (via Facebook) to show me how far I've climbed. . . Never doubt that you have the ability to grow. To change. And yes, I believe that people do change! Oftentimes it's so subtle we miss it. . . So far 2018 has held many challenges; the biggest difference from 2008 is now I can see the opportunity wrapped inside them. . . #tbt #progressnotperfection #winning #fitpro #curlyhairdontcare #growthmindset @teameqx #greenwichaveequinox #equinox #itsnotfitnessitslife #committosomething
