"Behold a runt amongst the litter of giants"
Yes that pipsqueak on the left is me.
People often wonder why I'm so competitive. Why I push myself so hard and what could have gone "wrong" in my childhood that could drive me to be a "madman" dedicated to being the best I can be. Well a good bit of that could be the way I was raised with my parents always encouraging me to do my best at whatever I did. But to put it quite plainly I grew up with two older brothers who for most of my life have been double my size. Even now they tower over me in height, we were rambunctious kids who loved to play together and our favorite form of fun was winning. It was hard for me cursed with lesser genetics things that came easily or naturally to them generally challenged me greatly. When you spend most of your life losing you eventually want to give up... thankfully God didn't put that word in my vocabulary. So I grew and adapted I forced myself to become the man I wanted to be. Hence why I am so driven... my old age goal of outperforming my brothers was achieved long ago... but my hunger to win and slay the giants in my life lives on. Always challenge yourself. And always give %110 #strongman#powerbuilding#axlepress#squats#blessed#chestday#deadlift#gains#thebeast#logpress#benchpress#powerlift#selfmotivation#deadlifts#kaizencanada#traps#shredded#girlswholift#cpf#stampede#northernpowerliftingclassic c #Godisgood#kaizen#kaizenprotien @kaizencanada @concretefitnessgym #prairiewindphotography#williamslake
"E um dia depois da tempestade, quando você menos pensar sairá o sol." A minha tempestade veio, molhou muito, choveu demais...mas o sol saiu e veio forte, como aquele típico sol de verão 40 Graus !
E pensa num calor... Abençoado demais !
Previewing a few country homes today in Newcastle for my Bay Area clients + thought about how beautiful Placer County is. Seriously... we are pretty fortunate. No wonder why everyone wants to live here! #swipeleft to see some of my favorites features in this dream home. #placercounty
What does cool even mean? Is being cool the clothes that you wear? The car you drive? Your job? Your home? Your friends?Is cool being lawless or rebellious? Is cool being dismissive or self-righteous? Is cool standing out and being original? Being edgy and fresh?
Jesus is the ultimate cool! He was edgy and original. He kept the law but rebelled against man-made religion and self-righteousness. He didn’t have fancy clothes, car, or home. He dismissed none that came to Him. He was merciful, honest,and real. He condemned sin and set the sinner free! He brought freshness and revival to the church, and did it all through love and obedience, so that we could spend eternity with Him!
“But— When God our Savior revealed his kindness and love, he saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit. He generously poured out the Spirit upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior. Because of his grace he made us right in his sight and gave us confidence that we will inherit eternal life.”
Titus 3:4-7 NLT #jesus#theultimatecool#redeemed
A sua irritação não solucionará problema algum.
As suas contrariedades não alteram a natureza das coisas.
Os seus desapontamentos não fazem o trabalho que só o tempo conseguirá realizar.
O seu mau humor não modifica a vida.
A sua dor não impedirá que o sol brilhe amanhã sobre os bons e os maus.
A sua tristeza não iluminará os caminhos.
O seu desânimo não edificará a ninguém.
As suas lágrimas não substituem o suor que você deve verter em benefício da sua própria felicidade.
As suas reclamações, ainda mesmo afetivas, jamais acrescentarão nos outros um só grama de simpatia por você.
Não estrague o seu dia. Aprenda a sabedoria divina, a desculpar infinitamente, construindo e reconstruindo sempre para o infinito bem.
Às vezes temos que nos despir da nossa alma...as vezes é necessário tirarmos os óculos que nos impedi de vermos o que está diante de nós!
As vezes a alma chora...
As vezes o riso muda...
As vezes os olhos vêem o que a alma insistiu em ocultar.
As vezes insistimos em não querer mudar, as vezes... Só as vezes... By Kelly Almeida
