My numbers are not even close to where I would like for them to be, nor is my form 100, but trust me, I’m working on them- and I’ve definitely progressed especially since @therealzakaveli workshop in October! I was left with a new hunger for calisthenics, something bigger than just a team, something that is elite, humble and family oriented as well as giving to the community! Something that I have to reallllly train and work hard for, which gives me the opportunity to prove to myself, Zef, and all of you, how much heart I have for this sport and how strong I can truly be when I dedicate all that I am and have as well as sacrifice EVERYTHING materialistic to ensure this new goal of mine is met through my perseverance!! 2019 I will be putting my training over anything and anyone aside from my immediate family 💯 those who understand will respect it and show support, and those who don’t, can just watch from the sidelines ❤️🅱️🅱️4️⃣🕒 thank you @therealzakaveli for the seismic shift in my life and thank you @andoni_lekue for the support - much respect ✊🏽 #SpiritMindMuscle#respect#BarBarianTraining#nextlevel#WestCoastCalisthenics#calisthenics

Zakhior fu in preda al panico, poi chiuse gli occhi e si calmò. Era un uomo di altezza media e molto magro, il tempo aveva segnato il suo volto e il suo corpo. Era settantenne ma era ancora agile e forte, forse per la sua forza d’animo. Aveva i capelli bianchi molto arruffati, dei baffi folti, gli occhi neri e per abito indossava una lunga tunica grigia con un cinturino nero in vita e ai piedi portava dei sandali marroni.

“I was on a mission to regain my health...I was literally fighting for my life. Daniel 1:8 says that Daniel purposed in his heart not to defile himself, and when you purpose in your heart it’s a decision, it’s an internal decision that you make - I’m not going to defile myself despite what it put before me.” Thank you, @mommygermoro for sharing your testimony of God’s healing work in your life by way of your obedience and discipline.
If I can give one piece of advice, it's this. MAKE THE SACRIFICE. If it needs to happen to reach your dreams, DO IT!
Closing up shop was one of the hardest choices I've ever had to make. It was sick to my stomach, up all night, on the verge of tears heartbreaking.
👉But it was one of the smartest decisions of my life.👈
These two girls deserve a present mother. They deserve my time, my attention, and my energy.
I am ALSO ever grateful for making the leap into coaching #ad 😂 It wasn't as scary or initially as impactful if a sacrifice, but it was another smart move. Coaching has allowed me to be the mom I want to be, AND still support my family (and frankly, it brings in more money at less of a risk than the snowboard shop ever did 💁)
So whatever the sacrifice, however scary it may be, if it's necessary to meet your goals. GO FOR IT!
Wouldn’t it be great if the world was truly fair? Where every person you knew was truly 100% reasonable in every way, including with money? Watch out for Financially Toxic People! Well, as we know, that isn’t the case. The world isn’t always “fair”, as many of us define that term anyway. And no, not everybody is totally reasonable, certainly not with money. The reality is that when it comes to money, there are a variety of different approaches that people take, and habits that they possess. Some people are highly responsible, some are not. These differences can cut across many dimensions, to the point where some people can pretty much be classified as having toxic money personalities.
They could be friends, family, or acquaintances. Maybe even coworkers.
The moocher: This person is always looking to borrow from you. Whether it’s a book, a lawnmower, or simply a small amount of money – this person always has a “need” to borrow. They never seem to have enough money on them, or time to actually buy or rent something they need. Rather, they want to borrow from you. Why not? It saves them time and money for the time being, and offers an escape for their laziness. Plus, if they keep borrowing when needed, they can use your stuff and let it depreciate while avoiding spending any money of their own. These people sometimes also have the additional attribute of being forgetful. As in, they forget to pay you back, or they keep forgetting to give back what they borrowed from you. It takes time and effort to remind such people to return what they borrowed. So if you owe me money, pay me back when you have it. But I’ll be damned if you expect me to “loan” you more money only to see you in a new outfit, or traveling. AE/TTMK
Himalayan Salt it’s like having the Sun directly on your body without the heat. It’s promotes spiritual, mental and emotional balance by purifying your body of negativity. It helps to regulate sleep and relieve stress. Sleep is so important to me because I can go days without Sleep. If I’am not careful I can have an Anxiety attack or a Nervous breakdown. ♊️ #Gemini’s who are buzzing all around need to balance their Mind and body because we don’t play when it comes to making moves. So imagine how fast you are if your Immortal. Learn how to ground yourself. It’s taking me years to learn how to ground my Spirit here in 3D. ⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️ #Humble#sacrifice

What is love to you?” I asked as I looked at him. I don’t know why the question slipped from my tongue as easily as it did. But here he was, my love was sitting next to me and as clear as day I could finally understand what made him the way he was. He was love, I could easily dig into the depths of his brilliant mind and question his deepest thoughts. He was here.
. “Love is sex,” he responded. The smile that graced his face stilled my heart. He continued, “to many men, love is sex.” .
I stared at his face as though waiting for a different answer. I wasn’t looking for the generic answer, that answer was disappointing. Too raw. And yet in itself it was truth. Many think of love in the way a lion would hunt its prey. It’s about the kill, about the score; sex, money, prosperity. Love to many is just a nice meal to end the day, a beautiful handbag, a way to cope with the monotony of life.
His face turned towards the sunset, his thoughts floated somewhere I couldn’t reach. I lay back in my seat, my optimism dying with every passing note of silence. .
He looks at me then, “Love is selflessness.” He described it with one word, just like that, no hustle or bustle of explanation. It was simple. And when I thought through it, it made sense. .
“It’s putting that person above yourself. If love was sex, that would mean a prostitute would be the most loving person in the world. Sex is just physical, it seems satisfactory in the moment, but it isn’t.” .
We both laugh, he smiles at me, his eyes glistening under the soon to be dark sky, “Love is knowing that my partner doesn’t want or like something and I would understand. And she, knowing what I want or like, would be willing to give or do it for me in spite of herself. Love is selfless.” To which my heart responded, “Love is SACRIFICE.”
I don't really wanna know how the #internet knows what's happening in my #brain but I needed to hear this. Actually it's #society I need to get outta my head. But yeah, I'm trying to #sacrifice my #mental and physical #health for them #coins but "It isn't in my #blood". I hear all your voices now--talking to me about #MONEY but I feel good right now. Everytime I THINK about my job I get in a foul #mood. Whenever I come home from that place, it takes me a second to focus and realize I need to now be present for #mybabies...and to hear if some dumb a*s with no #home#training said something stupid to them. So I'm not letting society dictate my every move anymore. You all do what you want--but i am different from you all. #Peace means more to me than money. And I'm learning that my kids just want to be around me and love me. THAT SHT IS #PRICELESS. And I don't have to be around #toxic#energy to attain these things. Honestly eff what you all think we as a society should be doing. #LiveAndLetLive#forreal#fr
Thanks for the #message@mikeschultenyc
True love requires effort and discipline. It is the choice to expend energy in an effort to benefit the other person, knowing that if his or her life is enriched by your effort, you too will find a sense of satisfaction—the satisfaction of having genuinely loved another. ⠀
It does not require the euphoria of the in-love experience. In fact, true love cannot begin until the in-love experience has run its course.

His name shall be callled Shepherd: "In my home I have a painting by Minerva Teichert of Christ as the Good Shepherd. I hung it in a place where I see it dozens of times a day. And there is a reason for that. There are many days (more than I care to admit) when I feel like that lost lamb--alone and cold, unable to go on. But then Christ, the Good Shepherd, extends His arms to me and offers me the enabling power of His atoning sacrifice, and I am reminded that "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" (Philippians 4:13, NKJV). This is the truth I strive so hard to share—that a Divine Being loves each of us and will help us every step of that way. He will consecrate our efforts, no matter how small, for He is the Good Shepherd." - Nancy Vandre

Remember the day you start? Remember how happy you was to start and you was thinking at how good it will be in few months! Now you wanna give up? Road to happines is hard, is painful, but when you touch it , you will forget all the pain ,all the fustration, you will gonna be calm and remember that painful training as a fight you win, as something you can do it again and again and it will not hurt you,don't give up. That's the happines you search , thats why you train so hard. 💯
This is my time.
I have a vision and no one will get in my way.
No one will alter my beliefs.
No one will roadblock my goals.
I will move aside all barriers to my dreams.
No matter how many disappointments along the way.
My Mind remains stronger than ever
Every minute, Every hour, every day
Focused to the finish. ❤️
There are few good souls around me who helped me out in all the situations, even I lost all my hope @shaunaalmighty this man was always there for me ❤️🔥
He always used to tell me you can do it and you got all the potential to do it.
Without him this victory wouldn't be possible at all. I want to make him proud and I'll come back with bigger title next time.🔥
Thank you each and everyone who was with me till the end ❤️ @ruben_murali_photography thanks bro ❤️ #nabba#nabbawff#nabbawffchennai#sportsmodel#juniorsportsmodel#volleyball#silver#champion#athlete#chennai#physiqueathlete#fitexpo#hardwork#dedication#sacrifice#teamaalmightyfitness#bloodsweatandtears👊🏻
