You don’t have the gas money.
You haven’t done laundry in a week.
You could really use a oil change.
But you go anyway.
Because you won’t remember running errands when your old, but you’ll remember waking up on a desert tower with all your favorite people in the world.
I’ve been trying and failing on this project the last few times I’ve been to the gym. I thought I had it today only to be thrown off on the last move. Next time! #climbing#gymrat#gymclimbing#bouldering
Un rêve, ça se mérite ! Vous pouvez aussi faire quelque chose de fou ! 🌞💪🎉
On me dit souvent "tu as de la chance de partir faire ce 7000m". De la chance ? Surtout de l'entraînement et une niaque qui fait déplacer les montagnes : crève depuis 10 jours mais je me bats, rando avec 20 kg sur le dos quand les copains n'ont qu'une gourde, gym même quand il fait froid et que j'ai envie de rester sous la couette. 👊
La vie, c'est pareil : votre carrière ne vous plaît pas ? donnez-vous les moyens d'en changer ! Votre corps ne vous plaît pas ? Vous avez le pouvoir de mieux manger et de bouger plus.
Vous avez envie de partir explorer le monde, et bien pourquoi pas ? .
Cassez les limites que vous vous imposez ! Vous pouvez tout changer !💪
Nous sommes bien PLUS FORTS que nous le pensons. 💪
Forzaaaa !...dans quelques heures, je m'envole pour mon sommet.⛰️
Tagguez une amie avec qui vous aimeriez faire quelques chose de fou !
Got home 11pm last night, psychology exam done this morning ✔️✔️ time management 101: priorities #swotvac???

I recently spoke with my dad about how I felt about myself and my identity growing up. We were talking and I straight up said “yeah daddy, I wanted to be white.” He was shocked. I had never expressed those sentiments to him before, or the fact that I struggled with who I was for my entire childhood and teenage years. I said “why do you think I begged mommy for a perm, I wanted everyone to know you were my dad because of your white skin, blonde hair and blue eyes, I talked about the “white side” of my family even though your side of the family is full of mixed races, and our Piscataway heritage. I never talked about my mother, the woman who I’d be lucky to be even close to amounting to, because I was ashamed of my blackness. The kids I went to school with shamed the idea of being black, and called us the “n-word”, making me feel even more like an outsider, ugly, and not good enough. So yeah daddy, I wanted to be white. •
I was told “you talk white” as if proper English is synonymous with being white, “why can’t I be all of me without race be in my voice?”(Quote from my dad) “Gabby climbing and the outdoors is white peopleing (yes that’s been said to me as a joke, by a white person).” My indigenous heritage as well as my African-American roots are engrained in this very land we walk, hike, and climb on. I belong here and it is my birth right. •
I am in love with who I am, where I came from, and where I’m going. Too often I let the ideas of society which is rich in white privilege define how I felt about myself. Climbing in which I love lacks representation, it is never a majority of people that look like me outside, and we always have to work twice as hard to get half as far. If these concepts seem unbelievable or far-fetched to you, if my story seems exaggerated because it’s never happened to YOU; then you’re apart of the majority, and you have privilege. It is nothing to be ashamed of, but DO take time to listen to people of color, and our experiences. You WILL feel uncomfortable, but these conversations about access, representation, and breaking down barriers is important, and to be an ally you must put in the work.

As we were driving to the boulders we could see it was raining where they were. It was still raining when we left the car, but I convinced Chris we should make the 40 minute walk up the hill to the boulders anyway. It had stopped raining by the time we got up there. The sun came out and it turned into the most amazing day.
A weird power combo I made up, suprisingly exhausting! I woke up to amazing messages from people who have my abs and hangboard programme 😍 I am sooo happy to hear you feel stronger already 💪 Comment below how your'e going 😁 If you haven't yet donated to my WC fund, I need your help to get over the line! I need 200 x $10AUD and Pay Pal is also now linked in my bio 🙏🙏❤❤ Thank you all xxxx
