"It’s well deserved time for a beach therapy," says Musclemania® Philippines Rendon Labador. The 6'3", 215 lbs., lifetime natty explains, "The past few months have been quite the rollercoaster for me, where it seemed my whole world came crashing down again and again."

"A fight against the current of life can be courageous and sometimes it may be necessary but it can also beat the shit out of you. I’ve made decisions that were rational and irrational, emotional and unemotional, selfish and selfless. I was so concerned with getting what I wanted but sometimes it’s not about winning. It’s really about Love."

"Instead of fighting an inner battle that could have gone on forever, I took a lot of time to process, grieve, reflect, accept, love, and surrender. Instead of looking back and having regrets, I choose to view my failures and experiences as life lessons moving forward. My past, the good and the bad, is a collection of moments that I can now look back and smile at."

"Every moment was, is and will be a gift and I am thankful. I see the experiences I’ve had and the places I’ve been with the people I was with as me being exactly where I needed to be to experience what I needed to experience with whom I needed to experience it with to be who I am today. A stronger and better person than before. The person I was meant to become."

"If you’re going through a tough time right now, just know I’m here with ya. You’re not alone. You might feel like the world is against you, but it's not. One day this will be a part of your story that you look back and smile at. This moment and every moment will influence the person you become. This experience and trial will strengthen and mold you. All you have is this moment. So in this moment, choose Love."
