My greatest work of art..thus far
What poetry and art look like as a form of catharsis
Creativity worshipped as if it were a religion
To the point that the artist themselves and others begin to question their sanity

It will hurt.
It will take time.
It will require dedication.
It will require willpower.
You will need to make healthy decisions.
It requires sacrifices.
You will need to push your body to its max.
There will be temptation.
But when you reach your goal, it's worth it.
#Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and Determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “Press On” has solved and will always solve the problems of the human race.

Statistics don't matter. Expectations don't matter.
Putting in the work matters, Continued effort and action matters.
This chart is from ESPN, about the real time odds of the Oakland Raiders winning the game last night.
Notice that with 0:00 left on the game clock the chance of winning was Kansas City 100%. Notice the final score. Raiders win 31-30. (Game Recap at: goo.gl/e4DjZA)
No matter how long the odds are.. no matter who is cheering for you to lose, Victory is always possible.
The world will teach us if we allow it too.
4 of the 6 vegan ‘emergency’ chocolate bars in my office. The other 2 are in the fridge. I like having them there. I know...that’s weird. But I’m not eating them because they’re 2 servings each. If I open them, they’ll be gone. So I don’t. It’s nice to know I have them for when the proverbial emergency rolls around. For the record, the two in the fridge have been there since April. Is this like having a blankie as a kid? I don’t NEED it but I need it...?
#flashbackflexfriday to a day after my last comp in June! You'd think we would have had a rest day after an exhausting prep and competition day but no 😂
Look at that🎄on my lower back tho!
#4weeksout tomorrow and wishing upon a star for those shredz to return... ➡️ swipe
