Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes! ❤ Woke up at 4 this morning to make the drive to Aspen...just finished the 6 mile hike into the mountains to finally enjoy my first legal beer. #tenacity#mtustudents#PBR#hiphip
What are your goals and dream in this life? Do you believe in yourself enough to reach them?
The obstacles will always be there. The fight will always be there. Whenever we think something will get easy, it will actually get harder. Problems won't just go away with time, we merely put them all in the back of our minds until they come up again. Many of us are so full of self doubt because of everything around us, of the atmosphere, of the people, of the situations. We are trying to make all the right choices and when something goes wrong we blame ourselves. But guys, realize something. There is no right way. No one has written a book on how things are supposed to be. We choose how we want things to end up. We have our life to chose how we are gonna live it. We are the architects, the programmers. We chose our lives through our free will. Don't doubt yourself. Don't compare to others. You are the only you and that makes you so unique and special. Keep on going through it all and always get back up.
Hey everyone 👋🏻 I want to start by apologizing to those who looked forward to my posts. I had said I would be able to do, but yet I've stopped posting yet again. I thought I could handle the time, but I wasn't. Things have just kept coming up and I haven't been able to keep enough with it all. I knew I could have temporarily closed this account again but I didn't. I wanted the content to be there for those who needed it. And if anyone ever needed anything that this account would be open to them to message me about. I will do what I can to keep going guys so thank you all who've stayed this far :) #inspiration#motivation#perseverance#tenacity#dowhatyoulovelovewhatyoudo#getbackup#keepgoing#dontgiveup#everyday__thoughtss
This season appears to be crushing me, destroying me, pressing me thin, and it seems impossible. Thankful that God works in our impossibilities and that one day He'll bring redemption and I'll keep discovering hope in the valley.
Really no way around it. But if you ain't sore then you definitely aren't putting in the effort to become better.
Every day isn't a gift. I don't look at life like that, it's about perspective and being able to change your mindset. Every day is a new chance to earn your gift. That gift isn't a material thing either. This ain't about money, cars, owning 200 pairs of sneakers. That bullshit is for someone else. The gift is confidence to do more. It's realizing what self respect can do in this world. Pushing beyond your comfort zone and succeeding, that's a gift money cannot buy. Standing tall and doing what others said you can't, that is a gift. Being able to give back and mentor someone, that's a gift. Those are reasons to live sore, to give each day your all and nothing less.
That pain in my muscles reminds me that I can push and improve physically. It also reminds me that those gifts need to be used and not put on display. No trophy cases in heaven (or hell). No badges of honor. Just the deeds you've done in your life. All that hard work put into your body and mind, use it for the greater good. Help out by volunteering. Go out and do some good, god knows we need the positive stories. Meet new people, have an adventure. Visit places that you've wanted to see. Isn't that why we live sore after all?
If you could just smell this..! I always thought risotto was too hard to cook but it's not really! It's @nigellalawson recipe full of cheese and leek. Power food to get me through the tonnes of work I have to do tonight!! What's your favourite power food when you have loads to do?
● DON'T BE AFRAID ●
Throughout my life I have regularly been accused of being different. My looks, figure, intellect, the way I pronounce words, mannerisms, dress and was even teased at Uni for being too tall, too skinny, having a different accent and really big lips!!! Coming from an armed forces background, I have moved around Australia alot. Over time, I have built resilience and tenacity as coping mechanisms.
I have learnt to be flexible and comfortable with my own company. This makes me appear confident, which scares a lot of people!! For this reason, I am very different! I am not the same as everyone else. I'm not even sure what that means?!! Years on, I care not for any of it! I do though, really worry about being the same as everyone else! I still don't really know what that is supposed to mean!! ONE THING I DO KNOW - I'M NOT AFRAID OF BEING DIFFERENT! ARE YOU????
