VOLUME UP AND WATCH THE WHOLE VIDEO! Sharing this super real post from @cgray_. Kids today are blessed with opportunities for training with very experienced coaches but often times there’s effort lacking from the player. I see players going 50% during practices instead of game speed. They seem to be more interested in going through the motions trying to look cool when there hasn’t been any big achievement yet. Instead we should go hard and if we mess up a few times that’s perfectly fine. Growth happens when we get out of our comfort zone. These messages are never just for sports. Myself, along with Christian in the video above, are trying to teach life lessons. The one thing we can all control is our effort, so why commit our time to something if we aren’t going to give full effort during that time? You only get out what you put in, so if you give half ass effort, you should expect half ass results to match. PARENTS, PLEASE SHARE WITH YOUR KIDS OR OTHERS WHO COULD BENEFIT FROM SEEING AND HEARING THIS! And please let me know your thoughts!
"She'd never be completely happy in her life, kept from roads, animals, neighbors. Kept. But I had glimpsed her joy at the summit... And in the wilderness, where she'd run completely free, the wild part of her satisfied in those moments, muscles and mind fulfilling their design. Inevitably though, we would have to go home, and there, face her confinement." - Ceiridwen Terrill
I'll admit this is something I've struggled with since getting Amira. I struggle with balancing my life with the dog I'm responsible for - one with high energy, intelligence, and the need for a job whose life, happiness, enrichment, and purpose is determined solely by me. It often seems like our needs compete - balancing my priorities and obligations, even wanting alone time, with an animal who fully relies on me, looks to me for stimulation, and has needs that can only be fulfilled by my time and energy. There are days I feel he's running me into the ground (I'll admit I sat in my driveway for a few minutes the other day before heading inside), where I get frustrated, and feel guilty for having him, and I knew reading this book would help articulate that.
#momentoftransparency I had a talk with the Lord the other day and I literally poured out my heart. I just wanted Him to know that while yes I desire marriage, my relationship with Him is numero uno in my life right now. I also said that if it's God's will for me to be married great, if not God help me to be content.
That being said, I don't want it to be EVER misunderstood that the only reason why I'm seeking the Lord is to be married...no I seek the Lord because I know frfr that I need Him in my life and I'm nothing without Him. 🙌🏾🙌🏾 #repost@thegodlycouple
I don’t know why I have never and still can’t get this through my head. It’s so simple, yet I find it impossible to believe that I won’t be happier/a better person at a lighter weight. #justbeinghonest
Ok all jokes a side, I haven’t weighed myself for a whole month and I had been dreading the thought of stepping on the scales. But...this morning I bit the bullet and I’m so glad I did because now I can draw a line (after my 7lb GAIN!!) and refocus on my goals. It’s so important to face the music after you’ve been 😈 no matter how hard it may seem. The last 4 weeks I have been bingeing through married life, being really off plan with my main meals, especially lunch, and have been snacking a lot more than usual so I’ve decided to set a new realistic target of -4lb to help regain my confidence in how to lose weight. We all have knocks backs now and then, it’s normal and ok 😊 but now I know the figures that I was avoiding, I can move forward with my goals 💪🏻 #motivationmonday#slimmingworld#weightgain#justbeinghonest#setbacks#confidence#wegoagain#letsdothis#weightlossjourney
There's an epidemic going on in med schools these days that you need tons of researches to match in to residency. This was something I noticed during my time in med school, definitely spread amongst my juniors and prevalent all over as reflected by the questions i've been asked. Luckily, today I get the chance to break another myth. Listen you guys, research is important, yes, but its importance is very much down the line as far as matching is concerned. This is not the first thing programs look for. So don't take it up on yourself to publish an entire journal, it can actually be detrimental considering the excessive stress which comes with it, and time which could have been prioritized towards the preparation of your exams. Secondly the research your doing, should have a solid academic ground, have a clear objective and should yield some results. Also publications don't mean only research studies, but also case reports, cases series, review articles, and letters to the editor. For med students out there, during your clinical postings, you see tons of variant pathology, if there is a unique case, study on it, do some literature review, ask the consent of your patient to write a case report. This would help build your CV and increase your publication quota if thats what your worried about. Be creative, be academically oriented and hustle. Also you don't need like 20 researches, I only had 5 publications, in which only 2 were researches. As long as your published studies are academically strong, and your overall application cohesive, no matter how scarce your publications it shouldn't make much of a difference, if any. Bottom line, quality is better than quantity, a few but academically strong researches are good enough, with time to be prioritised on med school and exams. #realtalk 💯 #justbeinghonest#usmleprep#mythbuster#desidoc#justdesithings#medstudents#match

Sometimes I get overwhelmed. There is always, always something I *should* be doing, especially as an ambitious, mostly responsible adult. Like, trying to get promoted in the day job, keeping up with the night jobS, building a coaching biz, exercising, meal prep, staying hydrated, grocery shopping, laundry, putting said laundry away 🤦🏽♀️ trying to read books and keep up with the news, responding to emails, calling friends and family, maintaining these naps on my head, DATING 🤯! And just staying optimistic, smiling through it all. Sometimes it's a challenge, okurr?! #justbeinghonest

This has been my view for the past 2.5 hours. There are people standing all around me, constantly checking the app to see when we will take off, criticizing what the pilot, mechanics and crew should be doing and just complaining. I’ll be honest, at first, I was getting annoyed with them. I mean, obsessing over an app when the pilot will tell us when we will actually go and criticizing and complaining about the people who are serving us and keeping us safe is pointless. This is out of our control. And then it hit me. I do the SAME thing with God. In the same way that the pilot, mechanics and crew are making decisions for our good, God only does what is best for me. But I get impatient with His timing, constantly trying to control things when only he can give the real answer. Complaining and criticizing the one who is ALWAYS looking out for me. Forgive me, God, and thank you for the reminder. #justbeinghonest#ineedtogrowinpatience#controlissues#surrender#committotheawkward#thankyouLord
