Someone once told me your life is SO AMAZING according to social media📲
1. FAR from the truth
2. I created this new Danielle
Let’s talk the truth.
The truth is I’m still very much in debt. I have a hard time saying no to fun things. To cute outfits. To amazing experiences. I’m a yes girl and often that doesn’t help my wallet. I’m determined to pay it off but it’s still a stressor.
The truth is I still struggle with being good enough. Being second best in sports growing up with allergies and asthma is something I have to constantly work on. Every day it’s a battle to stay positive and remember there’s always someone else out there worse off than me. If I can make their day better it makes me feel better.
The truth is I’m nowhere near where I thought I would be with my business. Comparison is easy when someone comes in faster than you crushing it. I have to continually remind myself every mountain I’m given is meant for me to climb. •
The truth is also that I refuse to not grow. No matter how hard life gets, how many people come in & out of my life, how many jabs are punched to the face I’m not a quitter. I will not stop and I will continue to celebrate the journey.
The truth is I have vision that no one can tear down. I’ve been made fun of for sharing my journey more times than I can count. Often from people who are closest to me. That takes a lot of guts to overcome and I do it anyway. I’m a big believer in working hard in silence and letting Success make the noise.
The truth also is I’m a diehard wanderlust. The ability to EARN my trips through sharing my health and fitness sold me at hello. I work for them. I help others work for them. I pay this gift forward because it’s a blessing and it’s helped me evolve into the woman you see today. •
Don’t compare your chapter 1 to my 30. I still doubt struggle fear and worry. The difference is I’m not going anywhere ever. If you’re looking for that something to change your life, it’s time we chatted 👯♀️ Love,
The REAL highlight reel 💋

Celebrating the first day of Spring with the Shelli Stretch Shift! ☀️🌻
✨you never had it because you never believed it ✨
When I was a kid I said I was going to Harvard.
Somehow I became convinced that was a silly idea and I stopped thinking I would go there.
When I was in middle school I made a pretend company- And in a small corner of my mind I have always wanted to own my own business. .
Tonight our team call was about belief. Belief that you are worthy, that regardless of the past, starting right now today- you are worthy of YOUR dreams. Not your families or your spouses or your parents but your very own dreams. Not what other people tell you your dreams should be. .
It is opportunities to listen to motivators like Chris that truly inspire me to dream the bigger dream. So the challenge tonight was to write a letter about our dreams- big dreams- about who we are in the world. .
Have you ever written your big dreams down?
The hardest thing about living your dreams is believing you’re worthy enough to have it🛑
When I was a little girl I used to ride around my cul de sac pretending everything. Imagining I was in a convertible cruising the beach. Chasing my sisters away for money. Stopping at every store to buy whatever I wanted.
What happened to those dreams?
The world taught me to believe it was hard to get it. I wasn’t good enough. I couldn’t possibly be that person.
Hearing those words tonight from one of my favorite mentors brought everything into full circle. Lately I’ve been letting other people’s opinions, actions, lack of action, criticism take me over. I started to complain more. Focus on the lack. Slip into a mindset of thinking nothing goes my way.
That stops tonight because I was reminded of my GIFT.
My heart is my gift. Giving is my gift. Speaking truth to others is my gift. Empowering people around me to live their dreams is my gift. I will never stop sharing the gift I have to offer because someone somewhere out there every day I share a post needs to hear it.
Expect a lot more from me friends. This girl is about to unleash the glow on a whole new level.
Thank you @thechrisdowning for touching my team tonight, you are one amazing friend + I can’t wait to crush the shift in Mexico next month ❤️
It’s just as easy to believe we are ✨AWESOME✨ as it is to believe were sucking at things 👊🏼 •
This one smacked me across the forehead this morning before my workout. It’s so easy to dread Monday. To be down about what you drank and ate this holiday weekend. To remember all of the things you’re behind on. To stress over not being ahead of the game for the week
It’s also easy to be grateful for another day to live. It’s easy to use this weekend as motivation to work extra hard on your goals. It’s easy to make a list and focus on winning one day at a time. It’s easy to smile and pump up your jams to get in a state of happiness. •
Workouts are my therapy.
I like them challenging, new every day, pushing me to do things that seem impossible. That start my day MY WAY. Fueling my endorphins. Feeding my soul. Reminding me that it’s a GIFT to move, not a punishment.
I challenge you to remember Monday is not a day to wish away. It’s a day to find joy in. To give the world your light. To run hard towards what you want.
Be AWESOME, in my eyes you already are 💋

Hi my friends! Did you have a nice weekend? Yesterday was sunny and warm 😎here in MD! Tonight we are supposed to get snow again ❄️☃️😂 Typical crazy MD weather! ✅➡️ What did you think of the Pottery Barn collaboration with Lilly? Did any of you Shop in store or just online?
I shopped online because I do not have a PB store near me. I got 2 Let’s Cha Cha beach 🏖 towels (left photo) and an Organic Orchid Duvet + 2 pillow shams (right photo)
My duvet set won’t be coming until July, which is fine with me. I am just thrilled to finally get some Lilly for my bedroom!! 💖

Have you ever thought 👉🏻 what the heck are these accountability groups + how do they work?
ME TOO 🙋🏼♀️ •
I waited weeks for my friend to tell me about these amazing posts she was sharing. How she was dropping weight and gaining confidence. How she was never alone on her journey. How she was doing it while traveling and still having fun.
Seems too good to be true right? •
Maybe you’ve been invited by me and it wasn’t a good time. Maybe you’ve been lurking on my page and loving my fitness Inspo. Maybe you just have no clue where to start and are looking to make a change.
If any of the above is YOU, girl you’re INVITED 💌 •
This week my team is hosting a ✨SNEAK PEEK✨into our accountability tribes. I know what you’re thinking - that’s just not my thing- because I said the same thing.
Until I met friends in MY city where I barely knew anyone. Until I actually SAW RESULTS and gave something new a try. Until I stopped WISHING and started working towards my goals surrounded by people who had the same mindset.
All free info. All straight from the heart. If you’re interested in learning more about what our Glow Tribe is all about, drop a ❤️ below + I’ll add you in to take a look 👀 •
It’s no coincidence you’re reading this tonight, this is ⚡️YOUR SIGN⚡️
Confession: it’s very hard for me to stop
I’m a big GIVER. It’s in my nature. It’s in my blood. It’s my passion. It’s my purpose.
Everything I do, I do it all in with heart. It’s a blessing and a curse. There’s been many times in my life where I’ve given my all to someone and they give nothing back. It’s also brought me to some of the most amazing people I’ve ever met.
I’ve learned that I always must give to myself first. I know I know you’ve heard it a million times before but when’s the last time you turned your phone off & unplugged? When’s the last time you picked up a book and actually read it out of enjoyment? When’s the last time you went out of your way for no reason to make someone else happy?
When I give a lot + it’s not given back it drains me. It takes all of my mental space. All of my energy. All of my zest for life.
Those are the moments I know I need to get back to my best ME, not for them for me. Today that means for the first time ever in this apartment taking a nice long epsom salt bath. New birthday scrubs in hand. Music up. Phone down. ✌🏻
You can’t control what life throws your way. What person doesn’t respond the way you want to. What is your next obstacle. All you can control is your thoughts, your actions, your attitude.
Today I choose self care Sunday. Everything else can wait 💋
🛑Blessed. Honored. Humbled🛑
Tomorrow night my community is getting a SPECIAL call, one I’ve been excited to make come to life for a long time. •
As adults we don’t get recognized for much. You go to work. Drive home and back. Put in your time. Make whatever is in the fridge. Live for your show of the night oh and the weekends. To be honest that got damn boring for me after 3 months in the real world.
After 7 years in higher education I had this big grand vision for what the real world would be life. A steady fat paycheck. Freedom to do whatever I wanted without asking my parents for help. My own place that I could be a mess if I wanted to. It just wasn’t that for me. •
The reason I don’t shut up about this community I’ve thrived in for the past 3.5 years is because it gave me the dreams of my 16 year old self back. The one with limitless mindset and a willingness to do whatever it takes. The girl who didn’t care how many times she heard no, she’d fine a way. The person who worked for a cause not for applause. •
Being invited to launch @thechrisdowning first ever program @shiftshop in our test group last year was no mistake. It was for a REASON - for me to give more of that vision of a life I LOVE to other women who felt stuck too.
I’m beyond excited to hear him give the empowering gift he has to my community. His drive towards inspiring others to take action on their goals has helped me be a better coach and more importantly a better person.
Team Glow Diggers + my Glow Community , I hope you’re ready to get FIRED UP tomorrow night. LETS SHIFT 🛑
