Another shot from today’s back workout. Lately I’ve been breaking up my back workouts into two days. The first day is focused on thickness and the second back day is focused on width and ends with some more thickness exercises. So far I’ve been Constantly changing up the frequency I train some body parts and also the body parts I train together to keep the body guessing 🎯
Christmas is, quite possibly, my favorite time of the year. There are so many aspects of this season that really make me realize how thankful I am to have the things that God has blessed me with—particularly God sending His only Son. In her article, “A Study in Sacrifice,” Victoria Marinov mentions a compelling point about how we celebrate Jesus’ sacrifice for us wretched sinners during Christmas. That the only reason he came, was to die. Yet, she takes it further and explains that people, including fictional characters, also sacrifice themselves everyday throughout life and in stories—all of which have different meanings of sacrifice and motivation. What does sacrifice mean to you personally?
'And do not think of those killed in Allah's path as dead; indeed they are alive and recieve their sustenance from their Lord'
“Io considero un delitto presentare degli argomenti, che potrebbero essere un sussidio nobile e ricco per la facoltà dell’immaginazione, in modo tale da negarne l’utilizzazione, e dall’altra parte pretendere che il bambino impari a memoria quello di cui non è riuscito a farsi un’immagine”. M. MONTESSORI
For years she fought for her family and the love of her mate, making #sacrifice after sacrifice and using every ounce of #strength inside of her to hold everyone and everything together until she just couldn't do it anymore. It broke her; and there was no one there to save her but herself. Her love had been #betrayed . But she wouldn't give up, she couldn't give up, now she would have to fight for herself. She would have to grieve the loss of the life she knew, face her #fears , #uncertainty , her pain and loss, with no one to truly count on but herself. She knew that the only moments that she would allow herself to cry were in her bed each night. She was #determined that, come morning, she would rise stronger than the day before.
—It takes a strong man, and by strong I mean an #emotionallystrong and #empathetic man, to truly #understand and #appreciate a woman who has been mistreated and neglected and has struggled to repair the damage done to her by someone else. Most men cannot appreciate how much work and effort a mother puts in to caring for her children physically and emotionally, especially a single mother who doesn't have the support of her children's father. He can't understand all the sleepless nights she has worrying about them, being afraid and feeling uncertain, having anxiety and trying to fill the role of both parents while working to support them and trying to heal herself and put her life back together. And then on top of it all, she has to #endure the #lying and #cowardly men who try to prey upon her #vulnerability and take advantage of her.
She's come too far and fought too hard to ever settle again. She #deserves a man who is strong enough to #choose her and walk beside her through all of it. Not someone who puts up with her kids and her situation, but someone who wants her and everything that she comes with, especially her children. She deserves a man who will help her #heal even more and #protect her from ever being broken again. She deserves a man who will never let her struggle alone, a man who will elevate her in love. A man who knows her worth. —Joel Clemons•Life Coach @the.gentleman.wolf #love#relationships
