I will continue to live by leaving a place better than what it was before you got there. One of the hardest decisions I ever made was leaving a hard working group of girls that went to CIF Semi-Finals last year. One of the best decisions I ever made was leaving these amazing girls with @agentkodak I knew they were in good hands and they would come back this year with a vengeance! After that lost in semis last season I told them this was their year to win it all! AND GUESS WHAT!! That’s EXACTLY WHAT THEY DID! CIF CHAMPS!!!! Congrats to the Lady Saints on their win and making history yet again! I’m so happy I got see them accomplish the biggest goal and celebrate with them! #saints#ladysaints#saintstrong#champs#love#basketball#cantstopwontstop#welivebaby#ringseason
We don’t often see influencers who promote the fact that they’re hearing impaired, and we’ve seen this post go crazy in the hearing impaired community! Have a read about what young @claartjerose has to say ! 💪🏻💪🏻
▪️ ”we’re in a generation where we (subconsciously) judge people by numbers and the way they present themselves online. In my situation, I often get mocked about my imperfect grammar, even though most people don’t know the story behind it. I am dyslexic and from a young age, I have had some degree of hearing impairment (actually, up to the age of seven I was considered deaf). My hearing improved over time, and most people don't tend to notice now - also because I compensate with lip reading. Yet, it is still my biggest insecurity. At the same time, it is part of who I am and growing up, this taught me a lot of valuable lessons. Number 1: never take no for an answer. I have never posted about this before, as I prefer focusing on my strengths rather than my weaknesses. However, I realise that we should also face and, most importantly, embrace our insecurities. Instead of constantly looking to show the perfect version of ourselves, let’s accept the fact that being perfect is a utopia, an illusion we love living because it prevents us from exposing ourselves.”
Sometimes stress & turmoil can force some much needed introspection & gratitude.
I knew that this path I chose was going to be very challenging, but I was up for the challenge & confident that I could handle it.
But lately I have been feeling like I overestimated what I’m capable of.
I feel inadequate. I feel like a failure.
I know I’m strong AF & my skin is thick, but I’ve been doubting my ability to be strong ENOUGH or thick-skinned ENOUGH to achieve my dream.
I feel like I’m spinning my wheels & going nowhere.
I’m not good at letting shit roll off my back.
I’m not good at switching from complaint absorber to easy going yoga teacher in an instant.
I dwell on the negative opinions of a few & lose sight of all the positive.
I know I can’t make everyone happy all the time, but when just one person is unhappy, regardless of the reason, my ego tells me it’s my fault & I need to change everything.
This experience has been very humbling & my ego has been dangling defeatist thoughts in front of me like carrots in front of a horse.
It tells me things like, “You should give up because you suck,” & “You’re going to have to accept cubicle mediocrity because you are not cut out for this.”
Luckily I’m fortunate to have an inner circle who want the business to succeed, who remind me of what I’m doing this for & step in to do the work that I’m too overloaded to do. They remind me that I am NOT a quitter. They put the good into perspective with the bad. They come to my defense when they see I’m about to lose my shit & remind me that it’s ok to make mistakes when I do.
I don’t know what the future holds, but I do know that these people were put in my life at a time when I needed them most, & for some reason they have stuck around & continue to push me to keep moving forward when I’m ready to throw in the towel.
This is just another learning curve, another obstacle to overcome, one of those “What doesn’t kill you...” things.
I’m not super human. I’m not 10 different people. I’m one person busting my ass to create something special, doing my best, making mistakes & learning from them.
That’s all I can expect of myself.
Had a wonderful time at Dinner tonight after service with Bishop Tim Hill, Pastor Tommy Bates, My Dad, & Pastor Bill Bailey! Love sitting at the table with great generals of the Faith! #cantstopwontstop
Today's workout came with an interesting twist...
Half the workout was done in silence, no instruction, just movement to accompany whatever thoughts running through your head.
It got me thinking, what do other people do in quiet times... 🤷
Do you fill your head with encouragement, words of affirmation to cheer yourself on, plans for your future and love ❤
Do you think negative, judgemental, low thoughts or "reasons" why you can't do something because you aren't "good enough"? 💁
Whatever is true for you, you YOURSELF have the ability to build yourself up, even when the rest of the world doesn't see your greatness... The belief starts with YOU! Once you see it, others will too 😘
On that note:
