Have you met these gentlemen yet?
If not, you really should.
Even moreso, your kids should!
This is Coach Mike and Coach Justin.
They coach our kids programs in MMA and Jiu Jitsu.
Tonight one of our young boys from the kids Jiu Jitsu class came in, head hanging a bit. I asked him how his day was.
He said “it wasn’t very good. Some kids at school tease me and pick on me. It’s been 4 years of it.”😢
I grabbed him in close like a giant mama bear hug and just hugged him tight with tears running down my face, my heart breaking for this sweet kid. I told him what a kind, big hearted, thoughtful, smart and cool kid he is. And said he is so so loved and no one should ever make him feel that way.”
He heads upstairs for his Jiu Jitsu class.......
A couple of minutes later I went upstairs to check on him and see Justin hanging out, just chatting with him. I could tell they were talking about his day..........
Just talking. Real life stuff.
Tools, techniques, words...... I told Mike that if they could give him some extra love tonight that would be the world to this kid. Which was received with a “of COURSE, he’s an awesome kid”
Not only are these amazing coaches amazing coaches......but they are true mentors. True role models. True friends to these kids. True protectors of these kids.
I am so grateful for the positive influence they are for our youth and the outstanding men they are, not only in the martial arts community, but in life.
@iron_mike1989 and @justinsanderjj , thank you for everything you do and for being a part of this team!🙏🏻

L O V E W I N S “Just keep being friendly to that person. Just keep loving them, and they can't stand it too long. Oh, they react in many ways in the beginning. They react with guilt feelings, and sometimes they'll hate you a little more at that transition period, but just keep loving them. And by the power of your love they will break down under the load. That's love, you see. It is redemptive” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr
Many love to quote Dr. King but also denounce the very movement and agenda he stood for. Today he's celebrated, tomorrow his dream is forgotten and they'll return to their disgusting stereotypes, cognitive dissonance and prejudices. They forget Dr. King was disruptive, he was a law-breaker, he challenged authority, he shattered the status quo, all in the name of equality ✊ and fighting for what was right! He spoke, he marched, he disputed, he imposed, he protested, he KNEELED.
Yeah, THAT part! ☝
The system has you thinking "legal" means "right". Remember slavery was once legal. #hellosomebody
Remember #alllivesmatter?! Oh yeah but not the illegal immigrants, not the Muslims, or liberals, not the women who had abortions, not the transgender guy being bullied by people claiming to love Jesus! How about the same sex couple that lives in your community?! Do you speak up when they're harassed?!! 🤔 What part of ALL lives confused you with being a hypocrite?! You don't have to agree with everyone but could we learn to play nice together in the sandbox?! That was Dr. Kings dream! JUST BE KIND! ❤
Being from Atlanta, I grew up learning about Martin Luther King Jr. and his impact on the South, this country (and the world!). The man and his supporters were incredible, literally putting their lives on the line for equality- a simple human right. Imagine that for a minute- being passionate about something so basic that you’d be willing to die for it.

There are so many good quotes from this amazing man and it’s always hard to choose just one. If you don’t know much about him, I encourage you to read just one article today- and I challenge you to give grace where it’s due and kindness and love where where it should be a given but perhaps is unexpected. #💙

Changing habits is the foundation of any nutrition! I have done many different programs and in my personal experience, so many ups and downs with my own nutrition these are my beliefs and what I feel is healthy. Eating healthy whole foods, never restricting yourself from anything you love! living with realife expectations, is maintainable and sustainable #justdoyou#justbekind#yougotthis
8 rules by George Washington Carver
Be clean both inside and out.
Neither look up to the rich nor down on the poor.
Lose, if need be, without squealing.
Win without bragging.
Always be considerate of women, children, and older people.
Be too brave to lie.
Be too generous to cheat.
Take your share of the world and let others take theirs.
We were so excited to finally have snow coming, we decided to prep some decorations to go along side our birdseed ❄️🌲🕊

Isn’t it funny how we can be our own worst enemies and say things to ourselves that we would not even dream of saying to others.
One of the many things I learnt from studying the great work of @louise_hay_affirmations is the power of affirmation✨✨✨
Why not research an affirmation that works for you and practice every day for a month and I guarantee you that you will experience a shift in mindset.
This is one of my favourites that I am currently using throughout the month of January...
“My work is deeply fulfilling” and “I love what I do and I love what I do”✨✨✨
May you all be well this weekend, make you all be happy and Amy you all live with ease.
What affirmation could you do today and everyday that would feed your mind with the good stuff?
