Don’t let the size of your dreams, nor the people who don’t believe in them, deter your from pursuing them!! The saying goes “If your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough”. Dream BIG, believe in yourself, and be willing to put in the hard work that it’s going to take to accomplish those dreams! •
Collaborating over Competing.
Almost my entire life I have competed. Through sports, games...my art practice. And while it pushes you to be your best self, it also isolates you. And that’s just not something I’m interested in doing anymore.
A creative individual can do great things, but a creative community can do even more.
Each pair of these hands belongs to a friend, most of them new.
It can be scary to build new relationships. But to gather with these creatives was one of the best nights of my life. Tomorrow we are recreating the vibes from #sgharvestfeast . An evening designed to celebrate the creative community, and highlight shopping local for the holidays.
Make sure you’re following along tomorrow night through our instastories and later through #flannelandfrost .
When God says Go, Listen!
It is with great honor and humbleness that I share with you this news. I have been given the privilege to return to Uganda for another trip in January.
Saying that still sounds so surreal to me. When I went in July my entire being was drastically changed. I left that beautiful country with so many different emotions. All I knew was that a piece of my heart was left there, and that I had not done nearly enough the first time.
It’s been said that we should pay attention to what breaks our heart. Chances are, that’s where God wants you to serve. When I got home I cried for days. I cried because I missed the simplicity, their generosity, and the love that oozes out of the red dirt. I cried because I was sleeping in a king size bed while they were on dirt mats. I cried and still cry over and over. I still believe that I haven’t fully processed the first trip or found my purpose while there, but I hope too.
I tell everyone often that I just want to help people and change the world. I may not be able to do much, but if I make someone smile and feel wanted then I’ve done enough.
I know what to expect this time. I know that it will break my soul and fill it back up. I ask only that you pray for me. That you pray that this little heart can love and serve even more than it did the last time. 🇧🇪 The organizations that we will be working with during this trip are:
Sanyu Baby Orphanage (I pray to see Esther)
Gem Foundation (hoping to hug my best friend Bethany EmmaLee)
Pure & Faultless
Jinja Street Connection
This little servant’s heart is SO ready! ♥️
As my grandfather once said, "When you're young, the world is at your fingertips. Do what you want to do. Do what's right for you." .
How I wish you and po po are here for me to show what Noel @noellovessnacks, and I have achieved thusfar. AND! We are 1 step closer to being able to dance to those classical waltz pieces that you both enjoyed so much! .
Look forward. Strive for more. Enjoy and embrace the process. .

Is being low levels 📉 of body fat healthy?
If you look good 😎 does that mean you’re healthy?
What’s your thought process on those questions? 💭💭
At this body fat I can tell you I started to notice many Hormonal 👨🏼🔬 changes with regards to temperament, libido and I was damnnnn sleepy 💤
Heck I looked alright 😏 but my body wasn’t at its most solid state. I’d say now sitting 4️⃣ kg heavier I am in a better place mentally 🤓
Maybe don’t have the abs to reflect BUT I’m much happier, getting strong as f**k (for me anyway) and I am enjoying more social time without the worry of slowing down progress!!
Got to find your ⚖️
Before you flatter yourself, I don’t want you either. I just want to feel, what used to exist between the two of us. Your tangible replacement hasn’t arrived yet and I’m not in the mood for nothingness. It’s too mindless. I’d rather self loathe, hurt, or struggle. Than let the numbness, move all the way in. 🖤ZC

Brain Gains - # Episode16
This evening we want to talk about PROGRESSION. Now be it detailed programming for the olympic Athlete or us average gym goers. We all need to make sure we are progressing in one way or another!
When we are in the gym, we have all been at a period in our gym life where we have performed the same exercise, for the same reps, for the same weight or alternatively the same distance/time on the cardio at the same pace. What's wrong with that? Surely by going to the gym I am going to keep getting fit and strong....
Our bodies are unfortunately as smart as David Dickinson on prime time TV and really need to be provided with adequate stimulus to allow change to happen. Of course at first we will begin to get fit and strong with our bodies adapting nice and quickly. But if this is continued with no progression, our adaptations will stall....NOOO all that hard work just coming to a halt?
If you run 5km on the treadmill at level 7 in 30 minutes our bodies will adapt and become 5km, level 7, 30 minute fit (simple terms). SO to progress this we need to then utilise one of the variables to continue to move forward.
Whether we change the distance, time or level, we are giving our body an increase in stimulus, leading to further adaptations. Same goes with weight training. By increasing the weight, the number of reps or amount of sets performed, we are forcing adaptation to occur.
So lets all this week look I want you all to buy a simple note pad. Write down each session you undergo and then the following week, progress that session in a way outlined above.
Let the gains begin.
To some this is just a red line, to others...its a family crest. A customer favorite not available for men. The perfect fireman's gift. Get yours at the @elivatashop website (link in bio). Also available on Etsy. @chief_miller @lsmercantile
