How My Dad Taught Me A Life Lesson

This is the story of how an entire generation got involved with physical training in a way that brought great benefits to the average Joe, both physically and spiritually.

I started lifting weights in my early teens. From then on I have been blessed to witness three important life changes. First, I learned how to exercise. Second, I met people who shared the same passion for training. Third, and most importantly, I learned that life is not about what I have, it’s about what I give. ┬áThis is true for any person, anywhere. Everyone has something to give in life, because we are all just a part of the larger family of humanity. Everyone who walks this earth has a story and a purpose. That purpose is not for ourselves, but our families and our communities. Life is not one moment of joy and happiness that leads to nothing but an empty feeling or a big emptiness afterwards. It is a journey of self-discovery, and this journey takes place in the physical, as well as in the mental and spiritual worlds. We need to find our purpose or we will be lost in the shuffle or a burden on others. So why do we resist our purpose? Well, because we are afraid of being a burden. In truth, the only thing we should worry about is giving our family and our communities what they need. And we can’t do this if we hold on to something else in our lives.

So what is it about a “sissy” that causes so many people to have a problem with lifting weights? It is the notion that lifting heavy weights for some individuals can lead to a “sissy” who needs time to be trained or that it requires a girl to cry to get out of her shell. This is all based on misconceptions and lies that some people believe. We all know that the physical, emotional, and mental development of the person we see at the local bodybuilding or powerlifting meet is NOT linked to the exercise we do at the meet. But the assumption that being a “sissy” means that one has to “tweak” his or her bodies by getting big, that some exercise is better than others, or that it is okay to change your appearance by cutting out some stuff that makes you feel ugly, leads to much unnecessary stress and pain. Most “sissies”, “shemales”, and some men do get bigger, but there are other options available. When I saw a picture of an “emasculated” Mr. Olympia, I would cringe at his appearance and not lift a weight. Because I see his “sissy” body as a symbol of the pain the idea of being “a sissy” causes people and leads people to avoid certain things. The image the internet paints of “the sissy” is a picture of a woman who is ashamed and in a perpetual state of guilt. This image is far from the truth. For the most part, being a sissy is a sign of courage. It is an indicator that you are strong enough to face things and confront them without fear, and you have confidence. These qualities alone, without being “a sissy”, make one a strong woman. It is my hope that you will be inspired by my experience and become someone who can make this world a better and happier place by lifting heavy things.

A few things to take away from this story: – Strength and confidence come in different manifestations. – There are many options available to lift heavy things: weight lifting, bodybuilding, powerlifting, etc. – You can be strong, sexy and have the most beautiful body any woman will ever know, by just getting up and exercising. – You can have an attractive “sissy” body and lose your fear by just getting out of the house and into a gym.
