To love a woman whose ways are false
Is like sledding over slippery ice
With unshod horses out of control,
Badly trained two-year-olds,
Or drifting rudderless on a rough sea,
Or catching a reindeer with a crippled hand
On a thawing hillside: think not to do it.
The speech of a maiden should no man trust
nor the words which a woman says;
for their hearts were shaped on a whirling wheel
and falsehood fixed in their breasts.
Now plainly I speak, since both I have seen;
unfaithful is man to maid;
we speak them fairest when thoughts are falsest
and wile the wisest of hearts. -- Let him speak soft words and offer wealth
who longs for a woman's love,
praise the shape of the shining maid--
he wins who thus doth woo.
Never a whit should one blame another
for a folly which many befalls;
the might of love makes sons of men
into fools who once were wise. -Odin, Hávamál
For months now I have really been into getting up super early to workout. The reward is not just seeing a sunrise like this... But I find my day flows so much better. Maybe it's not about working out for you.. but every successful person I know does the same thing that I do. The night before, I pack up all my things I need for the next day. I pull out the clothes I will wear even ..because in the morning I don't want chaos. All my decisions are premade..I have a plan. I meditate and get into my workout. Then it's time for you all...my clients. Sure when I stated this it was hard, it was a commitment. But now it's simple and honestly I hate to see what happens to my day if I sleep in ! 😁Get up early...charge into your life, get started with a plan the day before.
WHEN YOU ACCEPT EVERYONE into your life....guess what happens? You lose control over your time, your influence, and how you are influenced. DISCRIMINATION is so important. People may call you an asshole for it, but who cares. It’s not about them, it’s about what your trying to accomplish. So go out there and judge your acquaintances strongly. Why? Because they will predict your future progress more than anything in your life 🤔 WAGE WAR ON WEAKNESS ⚔️⚔️⚔️ #strongwords#truthhurts#nomoremrniceguy#yourfuturenow
After a weekend of debilitating anxiety, I am determined to take back control.
Hey anxiety, you don’t own me.
Hey anxiety, life is scary. But I’m going to use that fear to fuel me— not discourage me.
Hey anxiety, you don’t deserve my time and attention.
Hey anxiety, you’re a JERK! Get. A. Life. And let me live my own.
Just want to say we appreciate everyone who supports the gym by being a part of it. I've worked hard to keep these doors open and continue to keep it open but when people blatantly avoid paying while others are...well then all I have to say is that I know who you are. I know what you're doing. I can tell you I don't have the opportunity to be here all day... but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. Okay. Rant over. Have a great day. #lancesgym#chicago#hardcoregym#strengthtraining#fitness#powerlifting#taken#smallbuisness#nomoremrniceguy
I’m always so fortunate, and grateful, to be in the company of individuals more prone to using their eyes rather than actual logic and a willingness to understand.
Came across this, already iconic, piece of Serena defending herself against a sexist umpire in the company of a friend whom, after watching this, stated, “that’s why I don’t date black women anymore.”
My breath was literally taken away after he made such a statement.
In this clip, I see TODAYS black woman. A black queen that knows her worth, that knows her struggle, knows where she came from, where she is, and is rightfully wearing her CROWN in an upright position.
To view this as just another angry black woman is to mindlessly and willfully adhere to the conditioning done by the oppressor in an effort to maintain “strength” to everyone EXCEPT our black QUEENS.
With that being said, I introduce to you the 2018 and BEYOND, BLACK QUEEN.
