I like the curve of a ballerina’s foot. I like when boys are passionate about something and care about their significant others. I like poems about coffee and traveling and love. I like when I’m on the highway and I make eye contact with the person speeding next to me. I like when I’m in the city and I see someone taking pictures of skyscrapers; with their necks arched back and their eyes lost in the view and their mind on something wondrous. I like drinking wine with friends and vodka with strangers. I like when my heart feels full even if my wallet is empty. I like when people hold my hand or give me a long hug. I like when someone offers me something- anything…Their advice, a compliment, a gift. It’s a good feeling to be excited for the future and proud of your past. To speak to someone new […]
Life is pretty simple: You do some stuff. Most fails. Some works. You do more of what works. If it works big, others quickly copy it. Then you do something else. The trick is the doing something else. /DiVinci
I crave space. It charges my batteries. It helps me breathe. Being around people can be so exhausting, because most of them love to take and barely know how to give. Except for a rare few.
People inspire you, or they drain you — pick them wisely.
You are Beautiful. You deserve to be treated well. You deserve to have Good People in your life. Believe it. Smile. Stand Tall.
A warrior feeds her body well. She trains it, works on it. Where she lacks knowledge, she studies. But above all, she must believe in her strength of will and purpose and heart and soul.
If you truly expect to realize your dreams, abandon the need for blanket approval. If conforming to everyones expectations is the number one goal, you have sacrificed your uniqueness, and therefore your excellence. I am officially done with trying to gather everyone else’s approval. I’m going to do my thing – and if you don’t like it, then oh well.
Fashions will come and go, as will posers who use exercise as a way to get ‘skinny’ for summer. It’s an integral part of my life, just a few days away from the iron usually leaves me feeling sluggish, depressed and unfulfilled. For me it isn’t some phase I’m going through, it’s become a part of me. Challenging yourself, pushing yourself, constantly pursuing physical wellbeing and mental clarity. For some, they do not recognize the amazingness of training, of lifting more, of running faster. To them it’s just a way of burning calories. Oh it’s so much more. It’s empowering, it’s satisfying, it’s disappointing, it’s tiring and it’s so damn rewarding. This is something I will be doing for the rest of my life, I’ll be squatting in my sixties. I love researching, learning about weightlifting, martial arts, football, basketball, swimming, sprinting and every other sport there is out there […]
Someday someone might come into your life and love you the way you’ve always wanted. If your someday was yesterday, learn. If your someday is tomorrow, hope. If your someday is today, cherish.
?Don’t blame anyone or anything for your situation or problems. When you do that, you are saying that you are powerless over your own life—which is utter crap. An empowering step to reclaiming your life is taking responsibility. Jillian Michaels
I have found iron to be my greatest friend. It never freaks out on me. It never runs. Friends may come and go but a hundred pounds is always a hundred pounds. There is no better way to fight weakness than with strength, Once the mind and body have been awakened to their true potential, it’s impossible to turn back, the iron never lies to you
When we hold onto old habits, old thoughts, old clothes, old memories, we limit ourselves. We limit the space in our wardrobes, mind, time; in our life. Take a review of your stuffs, habits, thoughts, memories, put the ones that don’t serve you anymore in a big bag and put them out of your life. Now you can breathe and let the new in.
