Made by me.. Didnt make this cause I'm some Jennifer Lawrence fan-boy. Truth is I wont lose any sleep over this. Made this because whats bothering me is that shes a normal human being like the rest of us. Even though she might have more money than me & you it doesnt mean shes made of stone. Poor girl now has to face family & friends that were exposed to private moments in her life & feel like shes being judged even more than she already was. Shes even being judged by girls who do the same thing. Do a tag search for #girl #selfie lets see how many of you girls are angels.. I've seen the images & honestly it didn't do anything to me. I love girls & respect them looking at those pics I wasnt turned on but rather just doing something a lot of people in this world are lacking, thats thinking of somebody elses feelings rather than mine. So I just seen a girl doing something private in her life thats now exposed to the world. Thought to myself I cant imagine what shes going through right now & genuinely felt sad for her. She didnt do anything wrong & from the few clips Ive seen of her I think us a society will turn this into a bigger deal than it really is. Meaning in Europe there's boobs all over magazines but in America its okay to show people drugged out on tv, getting rapped, beaten but god forbid you see a nipple everyone loses their mind.. Shell be fine I'm sure she has people who care about her by her side & she will move on... Picked this pic also because of her stare.. Way the lights hitting her eyes, making them glow, watery, her lips relaxed, hair over shoulder, she looks sad.. like a normal human being..

Bear with me...
Since I was little, I've always had a strong desire to not settle down or have a "normal" life. I've grown to love change and the constant adventure being out of my comfort zone brought. This past year has afforded some of the most incredible experiences. I can't express how much I appreciate the support you've given my embroidery over the past 3 years. You've paid for my family's bills, allowing us to live the life we've dreamed. Especially wonderful, was the opportunity to spend the majority of the past year volunteering full time. This has given my husband and I the chance to refocus our lives on people, not possessions. With that said, the shop isn't closing permanently, however in the next little while we won't be working much. The amount of customs I accept will be limited and I'm tossing around the idea of offering more one-of-a-kind pieces such as this soon-to-be necklace (any thoughts on that?) I'll keep you updated here as my opening date is likely end of February. Again, thank you again so much for sticking around and for being so wonderful. 💝

This is my work tool belt. Everytime I put it on, I picture myself like a tradie putting on a nail bag. This might also be the reason I love stationary shops so much, I figure it's the nurses equivalent to going to Bunnings

The down side of wearing this every day at work is that I get use to having pens, calculators and scissors right at my finger tips. There have been so many times in my normal life when I've gone to reach for a pen, then been devastated to realise its not there, because I'm not at work and this would be weird to wear with normal clothes.

Let me walk you through the basics that I can't live without. The obvious is a selection of pens and markers of every description. I have a four colour pen, a spare pen and both a permanent and whiteboard marker. Scissors and tapes are the two things I find doctors always seem to ask me for. So now I carry them so I always look prepared; lull them into a false sense of security that I know what I'm doing 😂. The calculator is for reassurance. Even when I drug calulation is easy and I've done it in my head a million times, I'll still always double check it with my little computing friend

The blurred out part is a list of all the hospital emergencies codes. I wasn't 100% sure if this was something that's allowed to be published on insta, so I figured it was better to be safe than sorry. Anyway they are another thing I like to keep close by. That's some pretty important info to know

I'm pretty sure most people would know what a code blue is, but does anyone know what a code brown is?

I have dealt with a lot of physical pain since I was young, but my mindset when I was younger has helped me deal with the pain as I got older. I use to think like a kid...what I want to be when I grow up, going out and playing, friends, sports, school, etc.. even though the pain was frequent, it was normal to me and I moved forward with life. Embracing your present moments as they are happening helps in so many ways.

We went to our first concert together, Wednesday.
(She got cute for me and everything. 😍)
The performance was by Panic at the Disco, it was a cool show.
We didn’t know any of the new songs and we only stayed for 40 minutes.
(Which honestly is kind of normal for me)
Yet we still had a good time.
After the concert I had a thought:
“If I don’t stay in physical places longer than I believe I should.
Why am I staying in mental/ emotional/ spiritual places (relationships) longer than I should?”
I say that, to say;
I appreciate the people that reached out yesterday, the post yesterday wasn’t a call to action.
It was simply me stating that I realized I was spreading myself too thin for those that wouldn’t do the same.
I still want to live a life of servitude for others, helping those that are learning to help them selfs.
But I release my self from those that call them selfs my friends or family but really only take and don’t give.
I have no hard feelings.
Life is good, really really good.
In the end I hope everyone wins.
Much love,
Orssie

I’ve had it as long as I can remember and I’ve been able to live relatively normal life with it until recently. I’ve had migraine more than 50% of the days this year. I finally saw a neurologist this week and got proper medicines. Four kinds of painkillers that I eat around six a day, preventing medicines I take daily before bed and ones for the migraine ’attack’. Well you see one problem here, as the medicines do help for my migraine symptoms they make me feel dizzy and not me. They’re really strong drugs... For everyone who thinks migraine is just a sore head I can assure it’s not. I’m sensitive to all lights, smells and noices. Basically your senses are heightened. I feel nauseous and have issues with my balance. I cannot find words, I don’t make as much sense as I normally would. Sometimes I get this really strong headiche, it’s like a pressure. I can’t see or hear properly. These are just the most common symptoms for me. It can be very different depending on individual. I can get migraine just because I’m hungry or didn’t get full nights sleep. My life needs to be really controlled and regulated to prevent migraine attacks. Sometimes a sun light is all I need to lure my migraine out. Hope this raises some awareness ✨

I’ve never felt such overwhelming anxiety and depression before and never knew exactly what other people were going through until I experienced it for myself. There have been days on end where it seemed impossible to get out of bed and try to live a normal life. Despite the struggles, I’ve always tried my best to keep a positive mind and lately things in the universe have been revealing themselves to me in a beautiful and powerful way.
I wanted to get this tattoo as a reminder to stay strong and have been making such good progress in trying to stay positive and keep progressing day to day. “I need to look up / I got to stay up...”

Whenever I talk about my #diabetes I refer to it as ‘my disease’. I do frequently wonder what it must be like to be free from disease. Care free from disease. Care free from the perpetual health worry and the anxiety it breeds.
I remember after my diagnosis a girl talking to me about my recent life changing news and saying ‘it must be hard not to be normal any more’ and so many times since people have referred to me as diabetic, as abnormal to their normal. I even went to a party once where a ‘friend’ introduced me as ‘this is my friend Emma, she can’t drink our homemade cocktails as she’s diabetic’. Cue stares and ‘poor you, how awful, do you inject, my Grandpa had no legs and he died of diabetes. Brilliant. But- what is normal? One person’s ‘normal’ is the exact opposite to another person. A person’s normal is completely unique to them. None of us are the same! None of us think the same and none of us lead a mirrored life to the next. So how can you be ‘normal’ and me not be? What I consider normal for my health will be a life of luxury for someone else, someone with more debilitating health problems. I am grateful for that fact I am walking, I am talking, I am breathing, I am working, I am being a Mother. That is my normal....In my opinion any way!
My mind is so strong, stronger than I ever imagined it could be. My health has always and will always be my biggest challenge, body and mind. But I am so adamant not to be solely defined by ‘being diabetic’ no matter how hard the struggle may be.
One thing I am certain of is making sure Florence appreciates that every single one of us is different. Every one experiences struggles and strife and even though some people may not be physically or mentally strong that doesn’t mean that they are less normal than someone else. ........

When asked “Why do you attend music festivals?” , she responded,
-
“I attend music festivals because they’re a chance for me to be whoever I want to be and express myself in ways I can’t in my normal life. I’ve always been a very social person and I love the music so it’s been a wonderful adventure of making new friends, reconnecting with old friends and connecting through the music in ways words can’t describe.”
-
When asked “What mark do you want to leave on other festival goers or the community at whole?” , she responded,
-
“The mark I want to leave is to make sure someone’s day is made better with a smile. I want everyone to feel safe and have a good time because these festivals are a chance to escape the outside world even just for a little bit. We’re one big family and nobody should feel alone standing in a crowd of thousands of people.”
-
Lastly, she leaves us with this:
-
“One experience that always stuck out to me the most was raving with my now best friend for the first time at hardfest 2017. We arrived as practically complete strangers to each other and left with a heart full of love and acceptance of one another. After nearly a full year of friendship she’s turned into one of the best humans in my life. Our friendship has left a mark on my heart and my life and I’m forever thankful for it.”

“I attend music festivals because music has helped shape who I am. I wouldn’t be here without music, it’s gotten me through some of the worst times, but more importantly it has been a huge part of some of my best memories! Festivals are where I have met some of my best friends, finally felt comfortable enough to truly be myself and had life changing moments that I will never forget. Festivals for me aren’t just where you get to see your favourite artists, it’s where my family is, it’s a chance to explore somewhere new, to meet new and amazing people, where I can escape my normal life and just be free to express who I am through outfits and dancing! Most importantly festivals are like a reset in my life, I go to festivals am surrounded by so many positive people and vibes and am uplifted and rejuvenated by the experience, it’s the best feeling! 💕”

Mara is the only survivor in a horrific building collapse that killed her best friend, boyfriend and another girl. To escape the constant reminders of that night Mara and her family move to Florida to start fresh. But a mysterious boy and some strange "coincidences" makes it hard for Mara to live a normal life. As well as the fact that Mara still sees her dead friends in mirrors and walking around her school. The story is captivating and the mystery of Mara's life makes this book a page turner. It frustrated me that the story seemed like a regular contemporary romance novel, but on the first page there was a note that hinted at a more fantastic story. I waited through the whole book for more mystical happenings, but in hindsight I kind of liked it. It doesn't force the fantasy so that the characters accept an unbelievable thing and unbelievably are okay with their lives getting turned upside down. The addition of a fantastical element felt natural with a realistic hesitation to accept it as reality. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #bookreview

I just like to live life on the edge
.
Amazing things happen when you get out of your comfort zone and go after dreams. You’re put on this earth for a purpose and you get to make a choice on the direction your life goes.
.
You can choose to live the “normal life” or you can choose to take a leap of faith even when you can not see the next step moving forward and this is one of the BEST ways to create a GREAT life.
.
When you can not predict the outcome of a situation it usually makes you feel uncomfortable, but either feel uncomfortable for a short while with the chance of actually living your dreams, or stay comfortable in the life that is not your dream.
.
I used to hate waking up in the mornings, because I dreaded my job, I dreaded the work colleagues I had to be surrounded by, I dreaded the 12 hour work days as just another number that can be replaced at any time, I dreaded the 4:30am alarms, I dreaded the the environment that crushed my dreams and goals whenever I’d talk about them, I dreaded the fact that every day my soul was yearning for more and I knew I could have it, but didn’t understand why I didn’t have it already.
.
I didn’t understand why I was where I was until I realised I’ve just done what I have always done and it’s time to make a change. I invested into myself, my business, my mentors, my circle of influence and now..
.
I get to wake up in the morning happy & fulfilled, I love what I do, I love my business partners and people I get to work with, I love the positive and supportive people I am surrounded by who help me level up and be the best version of myself, I love that I can wake up when I want, yet I still wake up early because I want to, I love the fact that everyday I feel more alive, grateful and excited to just do what I do and I love that I have the freedom and flexibility to do whatever the heck I want!
.
I’m writing this post as I sit on a plane flying from Bali to Komodo Island & I consistently share posts like this to inspire others to start choosing to live life on their own terms! Stop doing what you don’t love because you don’t have to live that way.

"I was born and raised in Finland. The only thing I knew about Somalia was what in the news and long distant calls from grand parents. It was summer 2012 when we packed our suitcases and went to Xamar, Waaberi. Those 2 months were the best time of my life. We lived the normal life we could while adjusting to the weather and the idea that we were really here; in our home country. I remember waking up at 5am to make cajiinka canjeerada and knowing nothing about using burjugada. That trip opened my eyes. I learnt to appreciate the things I have. I became a stronger woman. I'm now studying medicine and when I'm complaining about exams or having seconds thoughts, I just close my eyes and think about all the sick people who need to be helped. That's my motivation and what drives me to study harder. I can't wait until the day I pack my suitcase again, knowing this time, I can help people. So see you soon, Waaberi; I'm is coming home." - ZamZam Mohamed (@fii_laa_beeriya), #Finland

I rarely get personal on my page as I try to keep it strictly work related but am slowly allowing my audience to get to know me a little more than my makeup (& food) posts. As a freelance artist/small business owner, I have the habit of wanting to say yes to everything & everyone - leaving little to no time for myself. I’ve told myself that is normal life especially since I love what I do. I now understand that balance is healthy & necessary in order to continue being successful in whatever it is that you do. Learning how to balance everything is the real task. Sad to admit that it was hard for me to let go & be in a place with little to no phone service. Not that I needed to check my IG every second but the fact that I wasn’t able to respond to my emails/clients right away made me feel so guilty. Unplugging this past week allowed me to focus on my inner self and gain clarity on my source energy and get back on the high level of frequency I choose to vibrate on. This (long) post isn’t intended to gain your pity but to share with everyone especially my boss babes, entrepreneur friends, artists, hustlers, my dreamers, to keep in mind that you have to take care of yourself too (guilt free) in order to enjoy the life and empire you are building. 🌟 #luckytravels

Friends, family, OG beastmode beard followers, and random "click on my picture to see me nude" Instagram skanks that add us, I, Duff, could use a hand for my boy Marcus.
Less than three weeks ago this guy was living a normal life and had no idea his life was about to turn upside down. A simple MRI for his ankle bothering him found to be no less than stage 4 testicular cancer that had already aggressively spread throughout his body and developed a few tumors on his brain (affecting his motor function around his ankle). In this short period of time he has already had 5 chemo treatments, a successful brain surgery to remove one of the tumors and is about to start his second round of chemo. At this point his "ankle kinda bothering me" has led to almost his entire right side of his body unable to function. His battle is far from over and he needs your help!
I met Marcus when I moved to Salt Lake City at the gym and instantly we clicked, we literally hang out every single day. And from the picture you can tell he can be a jackass just like myself. Yes we were dressed up as pilgrims for thanksgiving, and yes we worked out like that. Good dude, period.
Marcus owns and runs his own independent gym. He is my lifting partner, my brother, and most importantly one of my very best friends. I consider him part of my family. Never more has $5, $25, $100, a million dollars, doesn't matter, held such an importance. Every little bit helps! Even if it's just a repost or a share on Facebook!
The link to his Go Fund Me is on our page. Thank you for reading and supporting Marcus 👊

👁️🌠🎉
For now let's enjoy ease in the air, warmth of my family home, romantic walks around eating ice cream. Because in a few days my life changes drastically again. I'll work for an amazing sustainabile branding agency, but my life in the next 6 months will be H U S S T L E. 10h of office work a day, keeping my yoga sadhana and having no time to travel or do much social stuff. Living a 'normal' life. Have never worked for more than 6h a day, ever. Especially not in an office. But let's see how it all unfolds.

Life is epic.
I am ready for the next step.

I had been living in Atlanta for about a year and I had been working out regularly, for the first time in my life for about 6 months. I was in love. I couldn't get enough of the burn, the sweat and the high I got from training in the gym. I didn't realize how obsessed I had become until my Mom called me one afternoon as I was walking into the gym. I answered and told her I would call her back on my way home. As promised, I dialed her up as I was leaving the gym. She answered and said "are you just now leaving the gym"? I said "yes". Turns out I had worked out for 2 hours. That was normal for me. Did I love spending my entire afternoon at the gym? Not really, but I thought that's what you had to in order get results. Ironically, I had hit my first plateau and I thought working out more was the only way through it.🙅🏼‍♀️
•••
That night I did some research and educated myself on effective training methods. I found over-training was actually a thing and that's when I decided to get certified in personal training.
•••
Once I started training effectively, spending my time in the gym properly, equipped with a workout already mapped out I found that I cut my training time in half (more than half actually) yet I was feeling so strong, fast and proud of myself all while seeing the best results I'd ever experienced.
•••
5 years later I still believe in this method, get more work done in less time and get more time back to living your life doing things that make you happy. Who cares if you've lost 50lbs if you live at work and the gym so no one sees you and you don't get to enjoy your life?🤷🏼‍♀️
•••
One of my big mottos is practice what you preach. I created every single workout in my FREE 7-Day #PostSummerReset Challenge with the mindset to prove to you that you don't need fancy equipment or a ton of time in order to get results. I give you exact workouts to do along with PDF and video demos.👯‍♀️ I'm asking you to trust but verify. Trust me by joining the challenge and verify by trying out the workouts. I’ve never let you down before and I’m not about to start now!

For me iT wasnt special anymore and I choose to stop and focus on my “normal life”. building a good foundation: meeting the Love of my life, buying a house together, making New friends, and focus on my career at my fulltime job. I dont say I stop competing for always, But for now Im going to live my life the way I want and like. I didnt stop training I still train But not at a competition level. Lessen leasend: DO WHAT YOU LOVE AND NEVER EVER LOOSE YOURSELF BY DOING IT, STOP AND FIND SOMETHING NEW🤛🏻BAAAARPP -

It’s the whole neverending pursuit thing.

The more you chase something, the farther you feel from it. Like when you look for love, nobody seems to want you. When you diet hard af, you feel fatter than you ever have in your life. It’s a mental game that we all have to learn to tame. I say tame because we’ll never beat it - it’s really just human nature.

So I’ve taken a step back to remember where/why I started so I can appreciate how far I’ve come. So here we are.

I seriously thought about giving up my entire social media platform and going about my normal life. Then all of these crazy opportunities arised and got me excited again - & not because of the opportunities themselves, but because people began telling me how my story has helped them or even saved them again.

So thank you to every person that gives a shit about my story and journey enough to follow it and even support me more than some of the people I consider closest to me. None of this cool shit would be possible or even mean ANYTHING to me without you guys. Its never been or will be about the follower count or likes for me, if I have 100 followers or 100k followers, I just want to spread my message to as many people as possible.

Goodness gracious I’ve got a bunch of new friends in the last month and I just want to say WELCOME and introduce myself and share are a little bit about life behind these squares!
.
My name is Alisa (pronounced Alyssa) Burke and I am an artist, author and teacher. I remember around age 7 knowing I wanted to be an artist and I have been making and selling art ever since!
.
My parents are potters who worked from their home studio and I grew up with a lot of exposure to creativity.
.
My entire childhood was spent around artists, crafters, makers and entrepreneurs so it is not a big surprise that being a self employed artist is about the only job that has ever felt normal to me!
.
I majored in painting and printmaking and after college spent about 15 years juggling a variety of day jobs all while growing my creative business. It was during this time that while happy, I always felt like traditional jobs never fit. I was always restless and often felt unfulfilled. All I wanted was to make art all day every day. I worked really hard and finally was able to make consistent income with my creative business and I walked away from my day job back in 2009...best day of my life!
.
I met my husband @andygun on a blind date. I didn't believe in love at first sight until I met him!
.
When our daughter Lucy was born, my husband Andy quit his job as a structural engineer and began working with me. We packed up our life and we moved away from San Diego, CA back to my small hometown on the Oregon Coast. Our desire and hope was to create a simple life centered around family and creativity. Over 6 years later, here we are, still living our dream! And while life can be challenging running a family business, it's the best decision we've made!
.
Painting is my passion and I love to paint BIG- like on furniture and walls and even our deck! The bigger and messier the better!
.
If I wasn't an artist I think I’d want to be a photographer or a food stylist!

Thankfully @camille_genevieve14 @alyssagrueber @sosyd were amazing and drove me back to Katy so they wouldnt have to worry about me staying back at the airbnb until it was time to come home, I cant thank them enough for the little time I got to enjoy on the trip with them. Once settled at my cousins house in Houston I was bed ridden unless being wheeled around in my wheelchair, thank goodness we found out about the houston dog show on Sunday and I was able to go and actually cried tears of joy seeing all the amazing show and rescue dogs! All in all it was a good/tough/amazing weekend but I am very much hoping that I can now return to normal for me life. Thank you everyone for your prayers and support!

So I’ve posted about this on my fb but I realized that some of you are local to me but only follow me here (my apologies to those who already saw/know this). I have BIG news: a month from yesterday, I’ll be donating a kidney! It’s a long story I’m happy to share if you’d like, just message me. ANYWAY. I’ll be recovering at home for at least two weeks and probably won’t be able to drive for a lot of it. I find it incredibly difficult to ask for help so I’m doing it now before isolation potentially sends me in a downward spiral. I would LOVE visitors so if you have free time in the last 10 days of January, please come hang out! (Also, did you know that there are tens of thousands of people waiting for a kidney? One from a live donor is SO much better for the recipient and lasts a lot longer. A donor typically leads a totally normal life with one kidney so please give thought to #donatelife and #shareyourspare!) also come hang out at my house, mmmkay?

The visibility of your bones & the sharpness of your jawline does NOT make you a higher power. It's sickening to watch society admire & approve of behavior considered self-harm. Why must we praise these disorders as if it brings us closer to "perfection". Anorexia, bulimia, orthorexia, depression, anxiety, OCD are all mental illnesses I've fallen victim to. Just one more mile, just one less bite...I use to run until everything became blurry, until my body was dripping sweat & I could barely walk...I was weak & lost...lost in the realm of social media brainwashing me to believe I would only be accepted if my body was unhealthily thin. I was addicted to the bones I saw in the mirror. I'd rather die than eat foods that my brain deemed "bad." It became normal for me to wear multiple pairs of socks & layered clothing because my body constantly felt ice cold....I knew something was wrong, but I was driven by acceptance.
It is different now, I no longer feel the need to burn off every calorie that I eat, my hormones are becoming normal again after 2 years. Sadly, I've completely messed up my liver & thyroid from starving my body of essential nutrients & I am currently in the midst of trying to become healthy again...I still live with a daily battle over finding balance with food & exercise in my thoughts. I am able to acknowledge certain urges without acting on them, but the fight is still within my mind. It's easy to feel self-conscious & want to revert back to my old ways, but I must remind myself that there is so much more to life than being a pretty picture.
There's more than meets the eye.
You are NOT alone, you do NOT need to become a prisoner to the false thoughts that pollute your mind.
If you are someone who deals with an eating disorder I urge you to talk to a loved one before it gets worse, I promise recovering is worth it.
God has made you so effortlessly beautiful.

“It’s okay to not be okay”

I’m constantly preaching positivity, but it’s okay to not be okay. We are human. It’s okay to have breakdowns. It’s okay to cry on the floor because you’re overwhelmed. I’ve done my fair share of crying on the floor, and that’s totally normal! Life is tough, school is tough, etc.
You are not obligated to be perfectly okay all the time. That’s not how life works. Listen to your body. Feel what you need to feel, but don’t let it control your life.
We are allowed to fall apart, but we have to find ourselves again after. ☀️ Don’t ever hesitate to message me about what’s going on in your life. I will always try my best to help, or point you in a direction that will be helpful. This community can be so amazing & supportive! There are so many amazing girls on here who are willing to help, you just have to ask 💕

Thinking about living a normal life in Oregon or somewhere secluded. Normal SUV, Normal house, Normal life. Golf is the one thing that brings me true happiness beyond words.

I am thankful for the money and house and car obviously but I promise you it does not bring you joy in life. The Rolex I own only tells time, The big house I have I don’t even invite people over, My car is fucked up and I realized life is not about material things. Wasteful use of money. Do what makes you happy, don’t chase material things anymore. •

I gave my first yoga classes here, my first hypnosis sessions, and i learned to be an entrepreneur. It’s been quite a wild ride ! For many many months when I started I would pay to be able to teach a class, or sometimes I would earn 5€, or 10€ if I was lucky. None of the yoga studios wanted me. And today I’m starting a whole new chapter again. I definitely don’t choose the easy way, but that’s my soul’s path. And even though sometimes my little self wished to have a more “normal” life, deep down I would not change it for anything.
Your path is yours. Own it. ✨
🇫🇷🇫🇷 Paris... c’est ici que j’ai donné mes premiers cours de yoga, mes premières séances d’hypnose. Moi qui était une introvertie finie, j’ai appris à devenir une entrepreneuse. Avec le recul, je sais même pas comment j’ai fait. Pendant longtemps je payais pour aller donner un cours, ou parfois je gagnais 5€ (TTC!), et 10€ quand j’avais de la chance... Et pourtant pas une seule fois j’ai questionné ce que je faisais. J’ai juste continué avec la détermination d’un taureau 😅 Et là, je commence un tout nouveau chapitre, encore. Clairement je ne choisis pas la facilité, mais c’est le chemin de mon âme. Et même si parfois ma petite personne aimerait bien avoir une vie bien posée et “comme tout le monde”, en fait je sais bien qu’au fond je ne changerais pour rien au monde.
Ton chemin est unique, et il n’y a rien à changer. Simplement continue à suivre ton cœur ✨

This is the 3rd time I’ve been in first call outs at a national show and have come up short, as frustrating as it is I still love the process and that is all due to @_cutz_ for making me fall back in love with the sport. I’ve been on prep since basically end of February (4shows, 2 nationals) after coming straight off a surgery. So now it’s time to relax enjoy my friends and family time and give my lovely/amazing/beautiful woman the attention and date nights she deserves and. Couldn’t be more excited (as i sit here at the airport bar drinking a Moscow muel) to get back to a somewhat normal life. For those who know me the only thing that changes when I stop “prep” is the strict structured diet. I will still be up doing my fasted cardio everyday and I will still hit my weights in the afternoon. That has always been my routine and that won’t change. Thank you to everyone who has helped and supported me the past few months it was all very much appreciated and not forgotten. Lastly, again, I want to thank @_cutz_ for EVERYTHING he has done for me the past few months. The coaching, training, counselor (haha) but most of allbeing an amazing person and friend. #brothersforlife. I also have to thank his wonderful wife @linda__alberto for letting us borrow him this last weekend. Thank you 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Just look at Morgan. He is torn up and tattered with wounds to his head, ear and back leg. It seems that he was ganged up on and didn't have the fighting instinct to fight back. Likely because he is a beloved pet who just got out.

He needs our help to get to the vet for some wound care. He is on antibiotics now. Found in zip 77336 he may have a good owner searching for him.

You are not ALONE.
Things that have helped me :
Going Vegan
Cutting sugar (Even a lot of natural sugar)
Cutting down alcohol (Even though I rarely drink ever)
No caffeine
Mediation
Acupuncture
Massage / especially my ribs. My ribs get super tight and making sure you have the most space the breathe is key. As soon as my ribs get tight after lots of singing or stress, I start to breathe too much in my chest. It causes me to feel anxious instantly. So twice a week I massage where my ribs meet. I massage down the edge of my rib cage. Push one hand on the other to get tension. (Helps with lower back pain too)
Taking 2-60 minutes everyday to walk away from anything I’m doing, to just reconnect with my breath and myself. Taking a moment each day is so important. And no one is too busy to do it. To be in my body and not in my head.
Go outside. Look up to the sky and just breathe.
Cutting off ANYONE who causes stress or negative energy.
Cutting off selfish people who take and don’t give. Friendship has to be a two way story.
Protecting my energy.
Remembering I’m not just what I eat. I am what I read, see, hear, say, listen to... We feel what and who we are surrounded by. Making sure they are good for me and I too am good for them.
Deleting Instagram lol. The irony. I delete it when I’m not using it and download it when I need to post. I know that may sound silly to some, but it helps. I don’t want to be addicted.
Speaking to people I love.
Laughing.
This might help someone. That’s enough for me. You are not alone. Anxiety is awful and not something anyone can see when you feel like the earth is gone from beneath your feet. Like you are really in the word. I know that will make sense to anyone who has anxiety. Nerves and anxiety are very different. I understand. I’m sending you love and telling you, it WILL get better. Keep living through it. You got it. Normal life will return. Patience and serenity. 🖤

Hello everyone. This is my little brother, his name is Samuel Ayoola Olatuyi; he was diagnosed with CHRONIC KIDNEY DISEASE STAGE 5. This means fluid, electrolytes and wastes build up in his body as his kidney cannot filter waste. This has been managed by artificial filtering (DIALYSIS) which he has to do for 4hours three times weekly. The permanent solution to this condition is a KIDNEY TRANSPLANT which will cost approximately TEN MILLION Naira (N10 Million Naira). The operation is needed as soon as possible as my family cannot afford the dialysis any longer. He presently suffers shortness of breath, high blood pressure, sleep problems, bloating, decreased immune response, anemia and renal failure.
Please help him live a normal life. He is only 15years old, the best in his set with outstanding results and has dreams of becoming an aeronautic engineer someday. No donation is too small as a lot of tiny drops make an ocean.

On top of that I changed my birth control and I literally live out of my car most days because of how much I travel.

I’ve heard this quote applied to being lost in travel. Being a travel junkie myself visiting over 80 countries, I agree. In fact, riding a motorcycle around Thailand (and being lost a few times) was one of the most amazing journeys of self discovery I’ve ever had. •
But I would say the quote is even more applicable when you are lost emotionally because of major challenges and hardships.

It’s hard to “find yourself” if you’ve never been lost.

One of the hardest times for me emotionally was the failure of my last business a decade ago. After generating millions of dollars and seeing consistent increases in revenues for four years, I was hit with $500,000 in fraud practically overnight.

My merchant accounts seized funds and changed the way our processing worked creating huge challenges.

The stock market crashed and our customer retention fell dramatically to the worst we had ever seen.
*
I went from zero debt to $750,000 in debt within six months and creditors were suing me.

I had a former employee threatening and trying to extort me.

I had a competitor trying to sabotage me.

One of my biggest business advisors telling me that the partnership I was working on to save the situation would never work.

It was not pretty.

I couldn’t eat and lost 15 pounds during this time when I didn’t really have 15 pounds to lose.

I couldn’t sleep at night and would often be staring at the wall at 4am wondering how the hell I was going to pull myself out of this situation.

My anxiety was so high I often drink 2 or 3 double vodka’s just to get through the day. I finally understood some of what my father must have felt when he committed suicide.

It tested every ounce of my entrepreneurial spirit. I often thought about just going to a normal life and not having to deal with the incredible challenges that leaders have to face.

It’s strange, disorienting—being in a place that’s familiar but that also feels so far away from where your soul longs to be. My people are here, and I love my people—but... The Outer Banks is at once both magical and completely ordinary (as are most things in life) there are vast stretches of road with cheesy souvenir shops-various restaurants with all manner of ocean themed names-there isn’t a Target or big Movie theater chains-there aren’t huge malls to get lost in. For the most part it’s small town vibes surrounded by a not so small ocean. You can grocery shop in your bare feet-and everyone knows each other. It’s surfers, fisherman and small shops run by incredible humans. There aren’t huge flashing lights letting you know you’ve made it to the Outer Banks—it’s rolling your window down to smell the salt air while going down Hwy 12, it’s your favorite shops that you feel like your coming home to, it’s being surrounded by people who get the magic of this little sliver of land.
Today I woke up feeling lost in a sense-normal life feels jarring-an ache to feel the expanse of sea and sky lingers like a gentle hum. This morning I peeked in to see if Ava was awake-and there was this light, and there are the woods that are calling me today—and for now (and as I always try to do) I will see the magic of my here and now, and the way the light always comes in if your paying attention.
Until next time my beloved Outer Banks, I carry you with me always-xx

We take lots of risks to be in a very present state. Lots of clapping from spectators and a ton of high fives between us. Lots of happiness and joy CO-created always. In between skills, “normal” life happens to, we shoot the shit with our partners, meet new friends then back to the hyper-focused version of life. Yesterday I spent about 4hrs going deep with this one @lind.slaaay. We talked about Taoism ☯️, life goals, training philosophies, podcasts etc. Knowing the why behind actions helps us know the value and direction of our interactions. One of my why’s to Acro is to go deep with people that I don’t know that well. Lindsey and I are much better friends in 4 short hours. Now she has decided to come to the level one teacher training here in LA so we are on the Acro bullet train! So grateful to be living here in LA, so many gifts here for me. #gratitude #acroyoga #ayi #sportsacro #moveconnectplay #allwaystraining #allwaysplaying #calesthenics

Life is about balance. It’s about moderation. There is no point in being on a permanent diet and being miserable. All my #bodybyciara girls are on a moderate diet plan for now. Whole meals. Lots of protein, good fats, good carbs... And most importantly: A CHEAT MEAL!!! Check the stories on @ciaralondonfit as proof me and @livingconsciouslywithlisamarie are not starving my babes 🙋🏼🤣 Once I get my squad into the swing of things, training like a beast will be standard. Their food life balance will be 70/80% good, with 20/30% DESERVED treats.
At the moment the aim is to strip the fat. And build the muscle... then slowly incorporate normal life back... in a SUSTAINABLE WAY.
Train hard. Eat clean-(Ish). But most importantly - ENJOY YOUR LIFE! ❤️ #bodybyciara #balanceiseverything

I’ve been through some of the best experiences of my life at this gym, and even a couple of the worst. Annual trips here are a nice time to stop and reflect on where I’m at Iife, what’s happened in the year prior, what will happen in the next 12 months. It’s nice to have a time step outside of a normal life set up a little routine and have a lot of time to reflect.
Every time around there’s a new generation of Thai Boys there working to make a name for themselves as older fighters move on, and once a little respect is earned they are always super amazing training partners. The trainers always push me really hard and share their wealth of knowledge, I’ve always been matched fairly when I used to fight. It’s Old School training that’s battle tested, it’s grueling but it works. Long runs, lots of clinching and hard pads, technical sparring, and countless repetitions on the bag. I feel grateful to still be able to do this.

A podcast host recently asked me: what’s your best parenting advice? As a newish mom, obvi I still have A LOT to learn. But my answer actually originated from the white space of my youth.
_
My mother’s half-joke “do as a say, not as I do,” fell on deaf ears, but my young eyes didn’t miss a thing.
_
I grew up with acceptance watching her open her home each Christmas to “orphan friends” of all color, religion and sexual orientation. Body confidence was normal for me because she never uttered a negative word about her physical appearance. She threw great parties, wore too much Chanel no. 5, and couldn’t cook to save her life.
_
She busted her ass—using every ounce of her moxie, charisma and connections to get us into first class, front row and private school. Cheered her heart out at my games, and told me I was so brilliant, I could be whatever I wanted. As much as I wanted to believe her, I didn't.
_
Somewhere in the cross section of motherhood and the expectations society puts on women, she quietly shelved her creative dreams in deference to our needs.
_
I was raised to achieve and by 30, I had a successful career, plenty invitations and luxuries. I also had a deep ache in my heart that something profound was missing.
_
I’d yet to know that PASSION to CREATE is the true lifeblood of the human experience. It transforms mind-numbing apathy to astounding inspiration. It delivers us to the present moment where we feel deeply connected to who we are and why we’re here. It’s the magical place where time stands still, regret alchemizes to gratitude and anxiety evaporates. This isn’t about skill. It’s the highest level of self-care.
_
My spiritual journey has shown me that passion is the map that leads to purpose. It all starts with permission.
_
My mom is the most curious, loving, and generous woman I know. I have mountains of respect and lifetimes of gratitude for all she’s gifted me especially the best parenting advice she never said.
_
Don’t forget about you. When you give to yourself, you gift your children. If you don’t explore your passions, how will your children know what’s possible? Join me Mama, for this transformational adventure! Link in prof! 🌸🧜🏻‍♀️💦

I think people always have their own personal reasoning philosophies and motives behind any health choice they make. For me it was needed to get back to a "normal" life. Having falling out of routine with fitness, going through surgery and being too stressed, I needed a restart button. I'm still struggling with the working out, but I think my intent in doing this diet was well met.
Hopefully this may help some of you choose to press the restart button as well, because believe me I do NOT like posting these! But what's real is real, we are all flawed and we all have our own struggles. I think sharing our dark sides is more impactful then the perfectly edited great lighting picture of the happiness that is most likely staged. Let's all just be #real.

I am a alien
No matter how hard I try I don't fit in
Always all on my own, sad and lonely
All I want is for someone to play with me
Long ago I was a little girl yeah I was never ever able to fit in
My teachers at school would try to tell me what to do but, yo I would never listen
'Cause I was high all the time, stoned out of my little fucking mind
Misunderstood, lost and confused looking for a sign
All the popular kids at school were always super mean to me and made me cry
I never knew what I should do so I just walked away and said "Fuck off and die"
They said that I'm weird, that I'm ugly, and that I suck
I knew that one day all of those kids would grow up to be boring as fuck
I am a alien...
I close my eyes and float into the night I like to let my mind drift
Make a jump into a new dimension
Thank God I got that gift
Ever since I was a little kid
Always on that next shit
These whack copycat ball bags can suck my motherfucking dick
Sometimes it feels like coming from this planet people are so sick and twisted
I don't wanna fit in anyway, I'd rather be a misfit
Fuck a normal life, that's lame, me I'm insane in the brain
They laugh at me because I'm different, I laugh at them because they're all the same
I am a alien

It's July 27th, 2017 and a normal summer day. It doesn't seem like a lot, but for me to have a "normal" day is a gift. I never thought I'd even be alive to see myself turn 16, or to enjoy a summer at home. As some of you know, I lived at a treatment center for 9 months. I'm finally home, and let me tell you, nothing feels better than this. I'm recreating a "normal" life, well as normal as my life can be. I finally value my life and the people around me. A year ago I was using drugs and alcohol everyday to escape my mind. I was constantly contemplating suicide. Today, I'm having a normal summer day, and I couldn't be happier about it. My past will never go away, hell I have plenty of scars to prove that... but recovery is possible. I felt alone for a long time and no one should have to go through this alone, so please, if you need help let someone know. You can even contact me. Your life as meaning, a purpose. Whatever you're going through, there's a way out. You just have to decide you want it. I know this was long, and thanks for reading all of this. I just don't want anyone else to go through what I had to alone.

For the last few months, I've been waiting and waiting for God to just show me the way to go. But looking back, I don't think I put in as much effort as I should have. I told God what I wanted, but I didn't make a conscious effort to read my bible every day or have meaningful prayers/conversations or truly seek God's guidance by reading His Word—the Bible! Instead I went on with my normal life, distracted myself, and expected God to essentially pick me up, turn me around, and tell me exactly what He wanted from me...but I've come to realize that isn't always true! I often look at the people in the Bible who witness miracles and have God fulfill their prayers and I wonder what makes me different than them—I mean, why doesn't God do that with me on a daily basis? And I think the difference is dedication. The people in the Bible who spent the most time with God, who seeked God on a daily basis (not just when times were tough) and who obeyed God even in the most difficult of times were often the ones who God spoke to the most and who God answered the most! God tells us to "draw near to Him, and He will draw near to you". This means that we need to pay attention to God's Word and turn away the things that distract us from that! It means choosing God over your phone and anything else! It means SEEKING God daily and looking in the Bible, expecting that God will show us something through His Word! God speaks to us in many different ways—through others, through His Word, and sometimes even directly to us. But the key is listening. Be ready to listen to God. Be ready for an answer. Seek God daily. I promise you that if you do this, God will show you wonderful things!! May God bless you today!💚

It was August 1st, and now we are over halfway through the month. I still don’t know how we got from there to here. From a life where everything was starting to feel safe for our family again to this nightmare. We are back at the start of a long and gruelling journey in grief that follows an unexpected, out of order death. Back to the anxiety that follows trauma.

The days are going fast but the weeks pass slowly. Or maybe it’s the other way around. Long, slow days and speedy weeks. And I remember this—this two week mark. The aching first steps of reentry into “normal” life where people in shops will smile and inquire about how you’re doing or how your summer is going. And all you want to do is scream or punch something because how has the whole rest of the world not stopped with yours?

I don’t know what life looks like now either. I can’t see the path forward. I don’t know how to get to where I was before from where I am now. How to continue immersing myself in stories of deep loss. How to continue writing and researching and re-living it for my book. How to find the energy to be a good parent to Everett. But I also don’t see how I can do anything else, because nothing else seems as important to me as work that is rooted in both death and life.
For now, I suppose this space returns to one of self-surrender and pain and re-discovery. And, eventually, to hope again. I know that I will continue to share this process because these unimaginable losses find all of us—in many different ways at many different times. Life will be wonderful. Life will also bring you to your knees. And right now there is grief. Because the only way forward is through.

She shows very mild symptoms of the disorder, such as delayed speech and some repetitive behaviors. This diagnosis didn’t come as a shock to me; I’ve known that Ruby was different from other children her age from the time she was 10 months old.
Here’s what else I know: Ruby is the happiest kid. She loves everyone (except Santa). She is a delight to be around...90% of the time. She is silly and constantly making us laugh. She brings happiness to everyone she meets. Her doctors have said she’s the strongest 2-year-old they’ve ever met. She adapts very easily to almost any situation. She loves going to new places and meeting new people. She is smart and sweet and is loved so, so much by so many people. She is not lacking anything that truly matters. In fact, her energy and her ability to think outside of the box are qualities that make me extremely proud of her. No, she doesn’t learn behaviors by observing other children and then imitating them, the way most children do. She plays with toys or takes part in activities in a way that makes sense to her.
I’m not posting this for pity or support. I just realized that when I’ve told people about Ruby’s diagnosis, I haven’t used the word “Autism.” I realized it’s because I’m more worried about the stigma surrounding the word “Autism” than anything else. I say, “she’s on the spectrum.” But if you’ve met one person with Autism, you’ve met one person with Autism. It doesn’t look a certain way. It doesn’t mean your child can’t have a “normal” life. It certainly doesn’t call for pity or apologies. When someone tells you that their child has Autism, please refrain from saying, “I’m sorry.” There is nothing to be sorry about. I don’t need hugs or words of reassurance. After all, Ruby has not changed. I’ve been living with a child on the Autism spectrum for over 2 years, it’s just that now there is a label on her; a label that causes more worry than her actual symptoms. It’s a very small part of who she is and if this is the hardest news I ever get in regards to Ruby, I’ll consider myself extremely lucky. I already consider myself extremely lucky. #rubyjune

Hi there! Nice to meet you Yusuke. My friend told me about you and your blog, and I added you on Facebook.
I was diagnosed with uterine cervix cancer April of 2017. I had surgery in June, and radiation therapy September last year.
I left the hospital and went back to normal life since January of 2018. But unfortunately I was told that the cancer has come back, Ileus and cerebral infarction as well.
I lost my small intestine due to surgery, so I can’t eat. I also lost my eyesight in one eye.

Then I saw your blog. You gave me a hope and showed my bravery. I check out your blog when I’m down, so please give me an energy and positivey to stay strong.
Wish you all the best Yusuke. —————- That’s why I’m set off on the pizza trip called piece for peace which is bake 1000 piece of pizza for free in exchange they make a paper cranes and take a selfie with big smile filled with love and positive energy.

I’ll bake 1000 piece of pizza for 1000 smiles.

Well Happy Birthday to me 🎈 1 year closer to #death 🙏🏼🖤 In all seriousness I never thought I’d reach my 20’s. When I was 13 and starting my first entertainment job and helping raise my #brother, I believed I had the world and couldn’t wait to be 20 years old, going to school and having a normal #life. I didn’t realize how fast life could take a turn, how an abuser for a step dad could take advantage of your life. How 5 years would just go by without hearing a kids voice call me in to make breakfast, how fast #friends could come and sometimes stay and how #blood can just wash from your hands after years of being by your side.
👇🏼
When I was 14 and making pancakes and walking a boy to the bus stop.... I felt like a super hero. When I was 15 and coming back from school to see an empty car seat after court... I felt broken. When I was 16 and being told I was supporting a rapist for a boss... I felt humiliated. I did all this while touring with bands until press made me have a bad name I’m still shaking off. When I was 17 I was mentally drained... I felt suicidal. When I was 18 and living in Virginia I never thought I would have to look a sexual abuser in the face again before I moved.... I felt powerless. I still remember the night coming from a concert with friends just to return to chaos and a man with a massive body count of innocent women. When I was 19 and homeless again, but this time by myself.... I felt lonely and that turned to looking down a gun of a soulless robber while on the street one night 🤷🏻‍♀️ ... Convinced then that I would never see my 20th year. I was convinced that I would die and no one would care... I was so stuck in my own head mentally and still am. I’m thankful for the friends I do have 🖤
👇🏼
I believe now that I’m #alive and survived all this shit for a reason... I finally know purpose. Let’s hope I accomplish it before I die & 20s is the last chapter of a very long trilogy. This is only the beginning of my journey and I need to get my message acrossed fast before the #reaper comes for me 💀 either that or the politicians kill me off ☠️ We all have scars or tiger marks 🐅 an edited pic/pose is not reality 🙄😵

I remember how the 5-year-old me was so excited to see you two potatoes in a tray. I was happy to boast that I got a brother and a sister at the same time. In the last 15 years, we sisters have bonded very well. But you, my younger brother, are still my favorite person in the house.
I didn't know what autism meant, when maa-papa said you can't be normal now. I still don't know what normal means. I remember your childhood passed in hospitals and clinics. I remember how we two sisters used to stay alone when maa-paa were with you in hospital. All the time, efforts and money spent just to make you normal. I can't forget telling people, "my brother is autistic, not mental." But, you are the reason I smile after a long tiring day at college. I get home and look at you playing a game or watching TV. I enter the room and you look at me with a smile. You give me that annoying look when I hug you. You are the one who makes me feel special without even saying anything or doing anything. I know how much I irritate you and you still tolerate me. If it were someone else, you would have hit that person for even coming near you. I love that you are not afraid of me in this scary family. I love when you smile when I sing your favourite poem or help you with that difficult level of the game you are struggling with.
I don't understand why they are still trying to make you normal. You are perfectly normal for me.
You are my life support. You are the reason I smile. You are the reason I look at the world differently. You are the reason I can understand people with disabilities. You are the reason I understand disability is not the end.
You can't express your emotions, but I know, somewhere deep inside, you adore this special connection between us. You might never be able to read this. But I want you to know that I love you.
With love,
Your Didi. ~ Himani Joshi

Home is where you hang your heart 💙
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
The first thing I was told upon arriving to my first Burn back in 2013 was “Welcome Home.” An older man in nothing but a tutu immediately ran up, gave me a huge hug like we were long lost friends, and then told me to roll around in the dust. I won’t lie, the experience was completely jarring. I immediately thought, “What the hell did I just sign up for?!” I always thought I was an open minded person, but was this going to be totally beyond what I could handle? That week was one of the most uncomfortable, awe-inspiring, emotional, carefree, and life-changing experiences in my life. 5 Burns later, I’m proud to say that not much has changed. It still takes me at least 24 hours to shake the real world off, to stop thinking the word “weird” and to, if I’m being completely honest, stop judging. We all judge others based on what’s beautiful, what’s acceptable, what’s “normal,” and what’s cool, when those beliefs might not even be what we really feel. It’s just what we’ve been conditioned to think. If there’s any takeaway from #BurningMan that I try to carry with me, it’s that we’re all weird. There is no normal. Life is weird. Love is weird. The internet is REALLY weird. So why not be silly? Why live in fear of being uncool? Wear the tutu, roll in the dust, cry when things are sad and dance when everyone’s watching. You only have one life. How do you wanna spend it?

It’s the worst month of the entire year and I can never wait for it to end.
.
I was 15 when my best friend and sister passed away. I think about it often... every single day. It’s not something you can just shake from your memory. .
But this year I decided I’d take this month and reflect on everything I had accomplished/overcome, despite all the setbacks life has thrown at me. .
After witnessing such a horrific event, not very many people thought I’d make it. They thought that my spirit would be ruined forever (including myself). .
How many counselors thought I’d never finish high school (let alone attend college). That I’d go down the wrong path because I’d been scarred for life. .
How could someone like me, who had been through something like that be “normal”? Trust me, all thoughts ran through my mind too. .
I’ll never forget the first time I laughed after Kehndra passed. I felt incredibly guilty. How can I laugh after losing her? I cried for a good solid hour😪. What kind of shitty person am I?
.
So here’s to September. Here’s to celebrating all me and my family have overcome. Here’s to not crumbling and allowing this event to take over my life. Here’s to being strong enough to laugh again. To find happiness. .
I always said the summer of my 9th grade year was the best time of my life... my last summer with Kehn (it was a BLAST!).
.
But 17 years later and I can finally say I think this year has surpassed it. THIS year has been the happiest year of my life. And I feel okay saying that. No guilt. .
I love and miss you Kehn. Here I am living my best life for YOU! 😘 #wakeMeUpWhenSeptemberEnds

Plans already in place to work around my current setback. I’ve gotten to the point, difficulties and setbacks seem to be normal for me, a part of life. Always ready, on code orange, high alert. BUT I SURVIVE, I get through, I fight for me, I wear my strength on my shoulders through it all.. Where I become weak, I also become stronger.......A week or two in bed is needed. I do have to go to rehab for my knee. Will slowly began where I left off Friday as though nothing has happened, shifting my mindset, training my upper body and abs until I can get back into the swing of things . Mentor looked me over Friday and said all is where I need to be, just fine tune one thing. That all said in done, that muscle group doesn’t require use of my legs or glutes. But believe me, I will have abs and arms of steel by the time this is over..... Do what I can, the best that I can, through God’s strength and my sheer determination to not let this get the best of me. He knows what’s best and what I need, if this is a time for me to focus on me and slow me down a bit to reevaluate my vision. I accept his will. I’m constantly being groomed by him for what’s to come. I have to continue to put in my time with others, loving, helping and supporting, enriching, adding value to their life to EARN MY SEASON. Through others eyes and those we offer our life to, we become MAJESTICAL beings. My greatest joy is watching someone else claim their moment, pushing them to dream beyond this galaxy, to live their best life......What’s for me will come in due time. I won’t deny being upset and disappointed because my competition year was late starting and this year is almost over. BUT, ITS NOT OVER YET! I will fight this with every vein in my body. Eagle 🦅 to Eagle @michaelgreenfifbbp Thank you for the inspiration 🙏🏽

How grateful I am to have seen the love and support during such a troubling time in my life from family, friends, nurses, and people I’ve never met. Also, let it be clear that I by no means have life “figured out.” I’m just a person that is extremely passionate about the things I set my mind too. I hope the things I go through and experience and try to understand can help others be more self aware about themselves and the feelings they feel. I don’t need a doctor to tell me I’m crazy, my Mom has been telling me I’m nuts my whole life but that’s normal to me. I’m different. I’m dumb at times but I’m aware my actions have consequences. My actions have given me the greatest experiences with amazing people in places all around the world and have also nearly killed me. To me, it’s about recognizing those times and being aware and growing from all situations both good and bad.

Here are some photos and videos from this time in my life. Some are from the hospital, some are when I visited the crash site to further understand why this happened, some are kids I got to speak arrange by officer friend Jordan who helped me prank the Chainsmokers on my TV show, and some are my thoughts when I write in my journal. Take all with a grain of salt and just know I’m trying to continue to grow and get the most out of each situation I put myself in. It’s not a mistake if you can accept it and learn from it. Know you’re not alone with your feelings. I’m just a transparent person about some things because I feel like it’s what I’m called to do.

Thank you God for a wake up call and second chances. “sometimes you gotta bleed to know, that you’re alive and have a soul.” ||-//

At least a faint outline of them. Slowly I have been digesting the concept over the years that life is life is life is life. My actions will always have consequences, whether I’m at home, on vacation, in the midst of a tragedy or celebrating something wonderful. Those aren’t exceptions to normalcy. They ARE normalcy and consequences apply. I don’t mean the somewhat negative version of that word but simply it’s true meaning....”a result or effect of an action or condition”. My actions matter, no matter what is going on.
.
.
.
So if I feel entitled to say all bets are off when I’m vacationing, grieving, rejoicing, creating or under deadline, that’s my choice.....but I’ll come out of it feeling heavy, spinning and out of sorts, detached from who I am and want to be. For years, the slightest hint of what I previously processed as exceptions to normalcy would have me out of my routines or focus in no time flat, flopping around where life flung me, reverting to habits that no longer served me. I finally realized that my ideal state of living was only occurring in little slivers of “normal” life, when nothing else was going on. So basically, never. .
.
.
This morning, as I sat with quiet readers and sleepers, enjoying a gentle breeze, sipping a tea and going over my mantras, I felt balanced and grateful. The mantras were each written, one at a time as needed, to address an area of my life that requires my positivity, love and focus. They have slowly replaced my need to strong arm and regulate my way through areas of growth and learning. They gently remind me every morning of what I’m working on, who I want to be and how I’m getting there, without deadlines, ultimatums and harshness. They help me grow with compassion, patience and understanding. .
.
.
Sometimes I miss setting some lofty goal, feeding off the electric promise of success for a spell and seeing results so quickly. But I don’t miss the inevitable burn out and my harsh judgements upon myself when I can’t sustain that artificial growth. My growth has become slow (which can be underwhelming) but it’s honest growth that sticks...even on vacation. ✨

Doing these drawings is one of the few recognizable things that feels normal to me. The learning curve for being a parent is a steep one and the additional emotions that comes with it are so big. Getting used to a new normal, but drawing and documenting for me is an old normal that has crossed into my new normal. Speaking of normal: buying more pens might be the only normal thing that I’ve done in three weeks. Clifton and I left Hank with his grandmas and we took a solo trip to the dump (we badly needed to empty our truck that was carrying debris from our pantry remodel). I decided we needed a different thermometer. Clifton went to urgent care...all three of us have colds. And my first and last drawing of diapers. I swear. ❤️❤️❤️

Ever since those early days daddy would yell at me not to join in their physical fights with mama, or when he’d say no supper for me as punishment for coming home late from play.

I have lived afraid for long.

When you’re abused as a child or gone through any trauma, your worldview is congested with endless inhibition; an unease. I was taught to look down upon myself.

When I started writing music at 15, daddy would tear my music books, in which I’d also stuck pop star cut outs and ‘Young Nation’ lyrics. The only world I had built for myself that I thought would be free from intrusion. I had to hide my passions, hide my truth. Hide my ideas and freedom to express elation. It was like I never ought to show any emotion; joy, sorrow nor perturbation. I was expected to be a stone, until I thought maybe even stones had a better life than I did.

The depression, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and anxiety, I thought, would not hinder me from biding a normal life. But soon I understood; the pain will always come back if you don't deal with it. All kinds of trauma and injury cause an imbalance in your normal functioning. Ignoring, postponing, and not knowing about it prolongs your healing. Your body must go through the PROCESS of getting back to balance. I promise some of it will suck. But you will get there if you remain gentle to yourself.

The cities inside me long collapsed. My mind became a broken jar; wounded and leaking. These were the lost years. Submerged by a kind of spirit that resembled senility. Marred by self-doubt, wavy relationships, a father I died to stop hating, and existential mystery thoughts.

In this daunting chaos, I met signs – from as far back as 2015, while grappling with a pathetic heartbreak - people subtly telling me I had something to offer this world. In my inbox. On coffee dates. In poetry events. On TV. In bed. It was hard to believe, as gifted and romantic as I knew I am. As astute and shrewd a human being. Something intensely deep within would whisper, “You’re not good enough.” “You don’t have what it takes.” “Daddy said this,

daddy said that.” Folks, seeking validation is poison.

I remember how excited I was when I ordered my first camera. Before that camera was delivered to my doorstep.
I wrote down on pieces of sticky notes, why do I want to pursue this art, why am I choosing to believe in leaving the 9 to 5 job to become a full time artist is the right thing to do. I asked myself these questions because I wanted to see how I felt in that moment and compare it to how I feel in the future “now”. I chose to pursue a career in photography because I was intrigued and wowed at the power this form of art has over people. Pictures can tell stories with no words or audio. They can make you feel sad, happy, mad, all the emotions.. I was obsessed with wanting that talent of creating something that can do such things.
knowing the struggles ahead of being a full time artist and knowing a 9-5 was the easy and safe route to possibly possibly living a happy life. I chose the hard route because the unknown is exciting.
I didn’t want to fit in and follow what I believe is a system. A system that has set up some not all.. but some to fail at achieving a happy life if you can not conform to its ways. I don’t want to be what they call normal. I don’t want to be like joe and sally who both work 60+ hours a week to make ends meet to pay school debts for degrees that they can’t use because life threw curve balls at them and then they retire tired and no legacy because they were to busy with the steps this system had for them and times have changed. Life isn’t like the ones our parents lived. This new normal life isn’t for me and many are happy with that because they feel safe at the expense of their happiness or should I say freedom.
I can not and will not settle for average and be normal/slave, I want to live off my obsession, I want to be happy by being my own boss, travel the world, have new experiences every damn day because that’s what I believe what art brings you if you embrace it full-time and take the proper steps. I think the pursuit of any art brings this possibility. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy..... The rest is in the comments below.. #mystory #passion #dream #artist

I have found this balance between real life, health, fitness, fun, and reaching my goals that I can only hope other people can get to. life should be fun! you shouldn’t have to stop living to reach your goals. lift heavy, live fully has always been my motto and even though my page has changed so much, I still believe in that 100%! 🙌🏼 just appreciative for all of you that have stuck by me while i’m just living the best life I can 😚☺️ #thursdaythoughts #unrealatedbootypic #legday #gluteday #bootybootybooty #liftheavylivefully #balance

The world has lost a light today. Ever since I was young, there has always been a desire and a need to escape. And there was a man who created an entire universe that I could visit any time I needed. In this world there was a boy, just like me, who could break free of his normal life and swing from rooftops. It was a world where a weak bodied man was given extraordinary power and chose to use it for good. There was a blind man who didn’t need his eyes to see. An African country was the center of technology and science. A man who had worked his whole life in the business of destruction, heals the world by building. A woman could fly through space and take on the toughest monsters. A mutant, designed to kill, fights against his urges to do the right thing. A team of misfits protected the galaxy from monsters of the cosmos. This will forever be the world I belong to. And though I never got to fulfill my dream of meeting the man who brought me this universe, he has been one of the most important people in my life. I believe that he rests within the pages of his works. Thank you @therealstanlee for teaching me how to be a hero. I’ll end this off with my favorite quote from the MCU:
“...The strong man who has known power all his life, may lose respect for that power, but a weak man knows the value of strength, and knows... compassion.” RIP Stan the Man🙌 EXCELSIOR!!!! #stanlee #ripstanlee #marvel #mcu #comics #superheroes #captainamerica #spiderman #captainmarvel #ironman #wolverine #xmen #fantasticfour #avengers #hulk #guardiansofthegalaxy #infinitywar #thor #blackpanther

For the first time in four months, i didn’t want to get back in the van. I felt resistant. I felt like it’s too hard. It felt like it wasn’t stable enough for my needs. •

It’s pretty wild how fast we can acclimate. Within days of living in the van, that became normal life. •

We stayed with a friend in my favorite city, San Francisco for a few days this week. We woke up in a bed we could fully stretch out in, had hot showers every day and didn’t have to go outside in the cold to pee. We went to amazing restaurants and walked everywhere. We took transit and window shopped. It became normal and comfortable real quick. •

One morning we started talking about leaving early to start heading to Yosemite. One night we would have to stay in the Walmart parking lot but we could get there pretty quick in between our work shifts. My body responded in low key anxiety and I just blurted out one word, “no.” No? I was so surprised. My mind raced. I don’t want to get back in rosa. I don’t want to go back to that life. This is comfortable and that’s too hard. Let’s stay longer here, in the city. Please? I don’t want to! It really threw me off guard. Does this mean I’m done with vanlife? •

Here is the thing though, we didn’t have any other choice, so I got in and we drove away and as we were driving it started feeling normal again. Surrounded by everything we own, our plants, our simple life, and I took in one breath and knew it was going to be ok.•

I guess this goes to everyone who has reached out saying they want to do this lifestyle too. Sure it looks adventurous, sure it looks like freedom, but let me tell you, acclimation is acclimation, and you’ll always be sacrificing something no matter what home you choose. It’s those moments of honesty that change you more than mountains, and more than good transit. It’s when you can get down to it and ask yourself “What am I afraid of?” And I’ll tell you this, it’s moment to moment — but it’s worth the ask. Rosa is my home and I’m very much in love with this life but if everything were to change and we couldn’t do it anymore, whatever we chose would bring up the same feelings and that’s OKAY.

Thank you to @sophiemayanne , creator of the #behindthescars project, for coming to NYC and letting us Americans take part in your vision and share our stories. If you haven’t heard of Behind the Scars shoot over to Sophie’s page to see incredibly raw photos with meaningful life experiences. Sophie made me write my own while sitting in the studio. This is what I could muster on the spot: “My scar originates from an open-heart surgery I had at 17 to correct a congenital heart condition that was leading me to heart failure. The operation itself is supposed to be temporary with a shelf life of 15 years, but I’m holding strong at 18 years post-op, waiting for the next one. Being part of the “zipper club” has its benefits (I rather enjoy being alive). However, my scar healed like the surgeon lost control of the bonesaw, and I am left with a very distinct marking that is an unsubtle reminder of my experiences, good and bad. The reactions I typically receive when people see my scar have led it to become my biggest insecurity. It’s a constant battle between hate and acceptance. Hate because I’m often looked at as disfigured and broken once it is seen, as well as some physical discomfort it causes; acceptance because it’s a significant part of my life story and gives a glimpse into the mental and physical struggle I deal with to live a normal life that most people will never have insight into.

That brings me to the Behind the Scars project. I believe in confronting fear. Since displaying my unique scar for many to see in fear of judgment is presently my biggest one, I thought it might be helpful to participate in a professional production that was meaningful to people dealing with similar stories.”

I don't know how long I'll keep this post up because it's not me to be this way but I feel the need to say it. I'm currently dealing with. I'll make a YouTube video to go into a lot more detail. • To my supporters, let me tell you that there will never be enough days in my life to show you, tell you or give back to you everything you have done, and still do for me. That every fiber of being is so grateful that I am overwhelmed with guilt and thankfulness and I struggle with it. • Cancer is awful. It's much much more than I thought, expected or was ready for. I CHOOSE to show the positive sides that I create in my situations because survival is a mind set. I don't show the very real moments I lay in bed sobbing because I would give everything I have to go back to being normal, to being pain free, to being able to work and hangout without being exhausted. To have my hair back, my life back, to just mentally feel like myself. Posting and thinking the way I do is an every single second of the day conscious effort that I will not stop doing but hope people realize the struggle I face daily to not give up, is very real and incredibly difficult. • People may not be educated in exactly what I have, which a YouTube video will be coming out, but my cancer is stage 4, it will NEVER be gone, it will always be in my lungs. I can test negative and that's the hope but it will always be there microscopically and I will always fear relapsing. I also will have to have both breasts removed and both my ovaries. That's after chemo does it's damage on every cell in my body. • Insurance (while giving me better care than I could ever afford) does not pay for everything, nor does it pay for the holistic care that is life changing or the $$$ in over the counter medications needed to keep me living as normal life as possible. So yes now I have incredible insurance but no it does not pay for everything.
Let's be clear that •I DO NOT WANT THIS• But I will not lay down and die, If you think I'm being selfish, please adjust your mindset, I'd give it all back if I could. I'm sorry you think my gofundme or help is a joke.

I've been really busy with university and I know , that's not an excuse because a lot of you have the same "problem" but I admit , besides being stressed af because of uni when I have some time for me I never want to read , or write posts on my blog or even posting pictures here , I don't know guys I just was not feeling like it for a long time and I really need to start doing it again because I love this community and I don't want to lose what I "created" here with you guys ! 2017 is coming and I really want to start doing it right again so maybe I'll not read any book until this year ends, maybe my next book will be my first book of 2017 but I promise I'll try to stay active here for you , even if I'm not reading as much as I should ! .
I need to say something more here , I have tons of books to read and review that were sent to me by the authors or publishers and GUYS believe me when I say that I feel awful because the books are there sitting on my shelves and unread , I feel like shit when I think about that and I swear I'm not being ungrateful by not reading the books you sent for me in exchange for honest reviews , I swear that is not my intention at all and I will try to read them all as fast as I can and I will post their reviews as fast as I can in 2017 , I'm not telling you I'll read them this year because I would be lying really, I am still trying to come back to my "normal life" when it is about IG and my reviewer life so I am just guaranteeing you that I will come back as hard as I can in 2017 not this year .
Before I finish this huge caption , I lost a lot of followers and that's really not important to me , I am just trying to tell you that I am really happy a lot of you didn't leave , because in my opinion it is stupid when you unfollow an account you love just because that person is away because that person has a personal life , so THANK YOU guys , thank YOU ALL that are still here ! .
LOVE U GUYS 💛 see you really soon , I swear !

Yesterday I had an interruption in my posh life

Or rather, I recognized just how posh my normal life is because it got interrupted

I was returning from a biz trip in Mumbai and had, for the use 1st time, assertively asked the firm I was pitching to, to sponsor my return

So they arranged an upscale sedan to ferry me back.The sedan broke down in the middle of the Mumbai Pune expressway, right on the slope in the narrowest part of the Lonavala Ghat

Lonavala is a hillstation getaway where there are only posh private properties and a village with no amenities

We could flag down no bus. It was 6 pm, sun down

The tow truck that was hired agreed to ferry us first to the nearest bus stand- 8 km away

Half an hour later we were pulled into a grarage. I was staring at a dark unlit road, few vehicles zipping by and a garage full of strange men

India is not a safe place in the night to be a woman alone on an unknown road. All sorts of perverts come out

The tow truck guy started fighting with my driver for some reason and his answer to "how will I get to the bus?" was "oh, i'll drop u" pointing to his two seater towing van

NO WAY. I got the car driver (who was also an unknown person really, but atleast he was sent by the company) and seemed more trustworthy, to accompany me in a Rickshaw to the bus stand

We flagged down the first bus hearing to Pune and I jumped in

It wasn't going in the direction of my home so I had to get off on the outskirts- Hinjewadi. The place with the massive IT Parks.The place that has gone to the dogs since I first studied here 15 years ago.Blaring horns,people driving badly, unlit road, a Rickshaw nearly scraping past me

And me desperately wanting to pee. The coffee and water from Starbucks was coming to haunt me

Hubby left has soon as he heard the bus reached the 2nd toll bridge, but he had not anticipated the 2 hour traffic jam that Hinjewadi now experiences

Had to go to a public toilet. Not looked at one in 20 years. Had to first chk if the toilet door locked

This is the #AamAdmi Life.Commoner's life. Poor, unsafe,unhygienic and full of pollution

Felt #deeplysorry for the #classdivide we have in India.I was living it #20yrsago

A type-A, go-getter like myself, could not bear the thought that something intangible could have so much control over me. But it exists. It’s real. It can happen to anyone - and it happened to me.
It took me 2 years before accepting that I needed help and another 2 years to feel comfortable sharing my story. A four-year journey that has undoubtedly and irretrievably changed my life and the person I am.
In 2016, I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder as well as a panic disorder. What does it feel like? It feels like sleepless nights. It feels like never-ending thoughts. It feels like being driven crazy when your friend replies without emojis. It feels like crying so hard, you literally feel like you’re about to pass out or stop breathing. It feels like you are never ever good enough. It feels like everyone’s eyes are on you. It feels like you are a constant failure.
It’s building walls so high, you can’t even find yourself. It’s pushing people so far away, you wake up one morning and realize you’re alone. It’s a dark, dark place that haunts you any time of day, any day of the week.

It would be difficult to pinpoint one particular moment where I realized something was off. Like many others who have what I have, it just feels like a lifetime of feeling this way and only coming to understand that it isn’t normal when someone with an M.D. after his name, explains that your levels of serotonin are much lower than the average human being.

It took a year of bruised forearms, daily panic attacks, nightmares that leave you panting at 2 AM and breakdowns that had become normal to me, before I finally agreed to see someone. Something I could not and never would have done without the love and persistence of those around me. I’m very fortunate and glad to say that life has not been the same since.

Finding a home is the one thing that has given me the chance to be here - typing this. I owe my entire life to those who pulled me out of the dark. I am living proof of the fact that the cold and dark days do not last forever. After every winter is spring, and I’m here to bring Spring to life.

“Growing up, I never really knew what a ‘normal’ life was like. My daily routine consisted of 25 pills for breakfast, some new sickness, and regular hospital visits. Every day presented a new challenge to overcome. But I didn't know any different because that was my life.
.
As I grew more and more sick, I mentally had to become more and more strong in order to keep on living. As the up and down days continued, that light at the end of the tunnel was beginning to fade away; the wait for a new liver seemed never ending.
.
My parents used to say the same thing every time I was feeling down: ‘Stay Strong.’ These two simple words reminded me that no matter how hard things were, I needed to keep on fighting because one day, I would be able to live a normal childhood like all my friends.
.
It wasn't until about a year after my transplant that I found out what normal life really was. Simple things such as walking up a flight of stairs without needing oxygen filled me with immense joy. Because of an organ donor, I have been able to wake up everyday for the last 19 years and feel that same joy. So for everyone on the waiting list, I want to remind you of the same thing that my parents reminded me of each day: Stay Strong.”

National Pediatric Transplant Week (April 23-27, 2018) grew from a question by Joseph P. Hillenburg (see our previous post to read @cobaltjacket’s story): Can we as a national Donate Life Community create a dedicated observance to raise awareness and help save the lives of children waiting for transplant?

Wow where do I begin. I thought waking up early for a lift was hard, I thought a 2 hour practice and then having to come back and do another hour and a half practice was hard, I thought studying all night for an exam was hard, I thought my dad not being there for me all my life was super hard, I thought me tearing my hamstring and being out 6-8 weeks and not knowing what team I was gonna be on was hard but then I came across these strong, ambitious young kids and seen the battles that they go through everyday and I️t brought tears to my eyes because here I am complaining about the little things and these kids are in the hospital battling for they life, but in reality all they want is a normal life. Like playing in the sandbox, or going to the park, or being able to attend school and hang out with there friends or being able to attend their friends party. It’s the little things that these kids want to do but instead they spend countless hours in the hospital doing treatment where they lose all they strength and can barley eat. The kids and the nurses said thanks for coming you made our day but I should be thinking them for the opportunity for allowing me to come and hang with these strong, amazing kids. I️t was truly an eye opener for me and I thank God for I️t. Be thankful for life because there are people battling for there life everyday. “ You don’t know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.” Thank you once again @childrensnational I will never forget this memory ❤️❤️❤️❤️

You guys see the final outcome, you see the glitz, the glamour. You see the shares, the travel. The cars, the hotels, the food, the workouts. What you don't see is the what seems like millions of hours, well into if not through the nights, leaving as the sun has well risen above. The hours and hours into the tiniest almost minuscule parts of tiny little millions of dots, lines and fades, making sure every single aspect is perfect, from a dot on the skin, each hair protruding through pores, or the sparkel of a pupil as it stares into the light. Layer on layer on layer on layer. You don't see that up close I can't see what I'm painting, my mind screaming at me that I've destroyed it, just give up now while you can, why bother, it's gone. What you don't see, is the pain, the pure fears, the tears as I sit crunched up in the corner of a European hotel room, endless hours from home, friends and family. Alone. Asking myself how the hell I got here? I don't belong here. Why do people think I can do this? How do I get out of this?? Will I be able to find a normal 9-5 once everyone realises I'm just faking all this, playing a part, a roll that's not me. I CAN'T DO THIS!! What you don't see is the sleepless nights endlessly painting and questioning, to come home to a young family who also want the best out of me, screaming for my undivided attention, just as the walls across the globe do. Every piece of me, all of me, inside and out. Tearing at me, like a fuel needed to survive. This is no normal job, this is no normal life. A life where I see moving forward, evolving, as the only option. But in order to do so, the ultimate fears must be faced, battled, won and lost. LOST!!!! You don't see the losses. Day by day, year by year, endless hours, endless desires, endless dreams. I see where I want to be, so far away, and I can't see any other way to get there. I hate the fear, but fear is my friend. It pushes, it guides, it makes me become me. The best me. So that constant battle pursues, will it break me, can I break it. Tears. Self doubt. I CAN'T DO THIS!! And you know what, I wouldn't have it any other way. This is me, my life, my journey. Maybe, just maybe, I can....

Hello everyone! My name is Theo and I am almost 2 years old. Since I was a puppy I was neglected and once they didn’t want me anymore they sold me. My foster Mom says I am a complete ham and such a good boy. Unfortunately, I have an extremely hard time breathing and require Soft Palate Resect/Saccules/Nares surgery. Due to the severity of my breathing issues I am unable to play with my foster sister, go on walks, or do anything that requires physical activity. I was robbed of the normal joys of being a puppy. Such as running around, rolling in grass, and playing with toys and other dogs. Please help me to be able to live a long and normal life. .
.
.
As Theo’s foster Mom, I would love nothing more to get all his medical issues taken care of so he can live a healthy life and find his forever home. All funds raised will go towards his Soft Palate Resect/Saccules/Nares surgery, Neuter, ear infections, conjunctivitis, private part infection, microchip, vaccinations, and all other medical issues that might come up.

Regular season #6 in the books for me as I close out year 5 of my playing career and year 2 as a HC. This year has taught me so much! About life, football, and people. Faced many new challenges this year. Played with many new players, an entire new coaching staff, and new systems. Had to make many adjustments, hard decisions, and learn to separate my roles, Coach, player, friend, and all everything else.... we faced so much adversity this season, yet we held together to finish strong and get back to the semifinals! In life we set so many goals. We make so many plans. And sometimes, those plans and goals go completely the wrong way. You fail! And sometimes you fail big! But one thing I’ve learned in my life is that you can’t keep a strong willed person down. My biggest achievement was not winning this year. That’s Normal to me honestly. I rarely fail at anything because I never quit... But when I see that mindset, dedication, and attitude began to reflect in my players/teammates and staff as well, Thats the greatest feeling in the world! Many don’t know what it’s like to walk in the shoes of a HC or a QB. That’s why everyone can not wear these shoes. Some days you don’t eat, some nights you don’t sleep... believe it or not, I still reflect sometimes on a throw I’ve missed in Poland in 2016... it becomes a part of you! Through it all, I’m thankful that @eastcitygiants gave these pair of shoes and that I was able to fill them. Each and every game, I know history for this club is being made. At age26, I realize I have such a long ways to go. There is still so much room to grow. But I get better and better with time. I feel more seasoned. If anyone is more equipped and prepared for tough roads, I know I’m for sure one of the few. I say this with so much pride and confidence: “Give me the tools,materials, and a pair of extra hands, and I’ll build you a house, no problem. Playing with the best of the best is easy, but building and molding the best of the best takes a different breed of people with great patience to do. I’m a different breed. I’m uncommon! I don’t play for the clout, I play for the love and respect of the Game!” #NEXTSTOP ECG 😎➡️➡️➡️➡️SEMIFINALS🏆

After 13 years of dedicating my life to this art, I have received my Black Belt in Jiu-Jitsu! I’m honestly speechless, it’s hard to put into words how I truly feel. It was definitely one of the best moments of my life, a dream come true. Through all the good times and bad times, the sacrifice and dedication, it was all worth it. I kept on. I stuck through it. And here I am. A black belt under one of the greatest Jiu-Jitsu fighters of all time - Andre Galvao, under the # 1 team in the world with the highest level caliber training partners, Atos Jiu-Jitsu. It’s a basic recipe for success. So I am a blessed man to be in the position I’m in. Don’t get me wrong though, I worked hard for this. I sacrificed my normal life as a kid as well as leaving my mom and sister behind. I slept on couches and in utility closets. I went from friend to friend. I took the bus and trolley to and from training. I ate gas station sandwiches all day because it was cheap and filling. I tore my ACL and came back from it. All to chase a dream in which had no life security behind it. But I had faith. I had belief. And most importantly I had imagination.
I knew that one day this passion of mine will pay off. This dream of mine would pay off. The hustle would all be worth it. I know I’m no where near where I want to be but I also recognize how far I’ve come. I’ve traveled all over the world through jiujitsu and competed with the top guys of our sport. Through these times I also met my wife and we had our son. She is the most supportive human being I know. She wants me to succeed just as bad as I want to. I’m the luckiest man with her by my side. To end this, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who’s ever supported me. Past, present, and future. I was never alone in this road and I never would have been able to do it alone. Thank you to good people, thank you to my wife, thank you to my professor and team, thank you to my family, thank you to my sponsors. I believed one day I would work hard enough to get my Black Belt. I did. Now I believe if I work hard enough I can make my mark on this sport. I know I can. Keep imagining, never stop believing, and follow your dreams. God bless us all

There’s an amazing thing happens when you get out of your comfort zone to go after dreams. You’re put in a place to make a pivotal choice in the direction your life goes.
.
You can go back to living the normal life, or you can make the realization that taking a leap of faith even when you can not see the next step is one of the BEST ways to create something NEW in your life.
.
When you can not predict the outcome of something it usually makes you uncomfortable. But it is either become uncomfortable for a chance at living your dreams, or stay comfortable in the life you have already been living.
.
Not too long ago I was in that pivotal position myself, and I realized that the life I was living was unfulfilling, and it was way less than what I had imagined for my life while I was growing up.
.
I had nothing to lose, everything to gain and realized that the only way at a chance to create true freedom for my family was to GO FOR IT!
.
So for the last couple of years I have been on a mission to continue to crushing it in my online business, but to also to teach others and give them the exact tools and methods I have used to do multiple 6 figures in sales as a complete newbie in this online world!
.
I am on a mission to bring true FREEDOM to the masses, and now I WANT TO WORK WITH YOU!

Ive opened spots before but need 11 more SERIOUS people to join our exclusive team with the exact system and trainings that has helped me create a profitable online business!

You will get access to our brand new Bootcamp and Social Media Blueprint where you’ll learn exactly how we are all crushing it on Instagram. You are on IG already, you might as well just crush it with the rest of us!

A thousand paper cranes.
Make a wish by making 1000paper cranes.
Japanese people believe that a wish will come true if they make a 1000 paper cranes.

I received an email from a girl who's been battling cervical cancer since April of 2017. She sent me a message while in hospital, She said: ——————
Hi there! Nice to meet you Yusuke. My friend told me about you and your blog, and I added you on Facebook.
I was diagnosed with uterine cervix cancer April of 2017. I had surgery in June, and radiation therapy September last year.
I left the hospital and went back to normal life since January of 2018. But unfortunately I was told that the cancer has come back, Ileus and cerebral infarction as well.
I lost my small intestine due to surgery, so I can’t eat. I also lost my eyesight in one eye.

Then I saw your blog. You gave me a hope and showed my bravery. I check out your blog when I’m down, so please give me an energy and positivey to stay strong.
Wish you all the best Yusuke. —————- That’s why I’m set off on the pizza trip called piece for peace which is bake 1000 piece of pizza for free in exchange they make a paper cranes and take a selfie with big smile filled with love and positive energy.

I’ll bake 1000 piece of pizza for 1000 smiles.

Piece for peace.

Hi there! Nice to meet you Yusuke. My friend told me about you and your blog, and I added you on Facebook.
I was diagnosed with uterine cervix cancer April of 2017. I had surgery in June, and radiation therapy September last year.
I left the hospital and went back to normal life since January of 2018. But unfortunately I was told that the cancer has come back, Ileus and cerebral infarction as well.
I lost my small intestine due to surgery, so I can’t eat. I also lost my eyesight in one eye.

Then I saw your blog. You gave me a hope and showed my bravery. I check out your blog when I’m down, so please give me an energy and positivey to stay strong.
Wish you all the best Yusuke. —————- That’s why I’m set off on the pizza trip called piece for peace which is bake 1000 piece of pizza for free in exchange they make a paper cranes and take a selfie with big smile filled with love and positive energy.

A friend of mine asked me if I felt any anxiety about going home to Sweden. Tbh I don't. I love my "normal" life. My "day" job is rewarding and challenges me, I love my training and the freedom I've when teaching myself, I'm obsessed with my dogbabies and on top of that I've a loving family and a boyfriend that spoils me in every way. Why would I feel any anxiety? And if I did, believe me that I'd do everything in my power to change it.

It’s funny how the crazy “New Yorkese” life full bustling streets, running from metro to metro, my daily double tall non-fat cappuccino, and hopping from the Upper East Side to Williamsburg for networking parties seems normal for me from December- June.

However, for the remainder of the 6 months when living in Italy, it all seems so far away. ⠀

The scenes of everyday life are complete opposite. ⠀

Suddenly beach bbq’s, the catch of the day, crystal clear water, the smell of pine and fresh herbs coming from the small piece of land on the beach, and the casual and confident demeanor of the local people seem more calming to me than ever.⠀

I start to think, why would I live any other way than I do. And I really would not like to be anywhere else but here in this moment. ⠀

Cilento was a new area for me to explore and I’m so glad I made the time. It’s full of so much beauty and wonderful people that everything in between seems like a bonus.⠀

When visiting Campania, I hope you consider it and I hope you call me to help you plan. We have created such a wonderful team there with local experiences that will probably leave you feeling full of amazing food and memories just like we have had these past few days.⠀

Grazie again #italia. You somehow still leave me in awe after 12 years. 😉🙏 Sometimes I still can’t believe this is my daily life #WHPdailylife ⠀

In 2015 I weighed over 500 lbs. not sure how much , the Dr’s scale only weighed to 500 lbs. they suggested I go to a meat processor or truck stop to get my actual weight. It was the one of the most embarrassing days of my life , and the bottom line I had done it to myself. I continued to spiral out of control and dealt with the news by more food , more drugs and more liquor. In late 2016 I started fighting to save my own life. I lost roughly 200 lbs. it wasn’t a fast journey it was actually quite slow. Earlier this year I began over eating and over drinking again. I don’t want to blame it on tour but man it’s so hard to balance life living out of truck stops and always running late to the shows , never getting adequate sleep and all the drinking. I am embarrassed to say that I gained 60 lbs back. TODAY is the day I start over and fight my life long demon again. I’ve been obese since I was a small child . All I’ve ever known was being fat , and I’m fucking miserable. I wanna sky dive , bungee jump, ride a bull, parasail , ride roller coasters, I want to LIVE a normal life and have a normal relationship with food. I fight addictions and alcoholism everyday . I said all that shit to say this , I need your help. I am going to start posting every week on my YouTube channel my results for the week , I will weigh in every Friday and start a series called FATMAN FRIDAYS- this time I’ve also enlisted help, last time it was just my wife and I . This time I’ve hired @brixfitness To be my mentor - he’s my favorite former fat fucker that has changed his life and has a very encouraging YouTube channel about it . I’ve also reached out to my buddy @swaggyyyy_j and James at Cool Springs CrossFit - . Thank Y’all for the love and support - NEW ME COMING SOOON. Anyone with a plug on meal preps in some of these cities we are touring or got a gym hook up fuck with us please. Hit up @popcorn_savage or my wife @xomgitsbunnie . #obesity #fat #transformation

Exercise has played a big part in my postnatal recovery - not just the physical side, but also the mental side, as getting into the gym massively helps me in terms of boosting my energy, managing my anxiety and generally letting off some steam.
But let’s be real for a minute - because it doesn’t happen overnight.
The pic on the left is me eight weeks after giving birth, when I first stepped back into the gym for some GENTLE exercise. I’m swollen and puffy, but that’s normal guys! Let’s start being a bit real and honest about what our bodies look like after a baby. And let me just add, i wasn’t in the gym to lose weight. It was me time, and i was following a postnatal ‘recovery’ programme. And i want to point out that the workouts I do now with Ty, and you see me post on Instagram are not the workouts i did in the first few months after giving birth...i took it slow, listened to my body, worked with @bethefittest who is qualified in postnatal exercise, and had a check up with @clarebournephysio at @sixphysio to make sure my body (and my pelvic floor in particular) was ready for the type of workouts we had planned. My workouts were designed to strengthen my pelvic floor and help my core become functional again, and to support my pelvis and knees and other joints that had weakened during pregnancy and labour. All new mummies should know WHY they’re doing the workouts they’re given by a trainer, or in a postnatal specific class!
And i know I’ve been lucky, as compared to a lot of women, my recovery has been relatively easy - but even if things feel or look like it’s all ok, it’s still important to take care of your body and give it time to do it’s thing and heal. And that’s why we set up the @mummytribe retreats.
There’s way too much pressure for women to bounce back, look great and get on with normal life ASAP after a baby, especially with all the pictures we see across Instagram and the media of mums who seem to have done just that - often in a matter of weeks. But if we just go hell for leather in the gym with workouts that our bodies aren’t ready for, we just end up totally depleted. (CONTINUED IN COMMENTS)

There all forms of liberation are celebrated, emotions are welcomed, and humor is a mentality.
Noah, who is spending his day looking for other Noah’s to build a ‘Noah fence’ is respected. Strangers hugging each other in their grieving is familiar. What is seen as ‘weird’ here is praised there. All body’s are beautiful and clothing is just a costume. What you do for work is irrelevant. What you give is paramount.
Returning back to ‘normal life’ even though my life isn’t ‘normal,’ I was heartbroken, wondering why our society doesn’t function like this (self reliance, gifting, commodification). I was reminded by my love that civilization used to govern like this; we have only evolved. We are still those same eccentric big hearted weirdos, only to have become more creative and more resourceful. Even if we have forgotten to live based in compassion it makes me feel better to now ‘see’ buildings as art and ‘see’ businesses as monetary contribution camps.
Regardless of how overlooked it might be, human-beings are wired to care and give. That is our best route to happiness.

Been fostering kittens for about a month and a half now. These siblings were a month old when they were found with their mumma in a field in Whanganui. Kitten Inn took them in and gave them a better start to life. Unfortunately their beautiful mumma was put to sleep because she could never be tame or have a normal life. The top left is 'Skittles' (the only girl), bottom left is 'Sammy' - we had him one week before he sadly passed away. Proud to have given him a week of love and happiness before he crossed the rainbow bridge. Top right is 'Brave' (fluffy wee thing) and bottom right is 'Skipper' (he got a lil moustache). When we first got them they were very, very small and each one had conjunctivitis. Then they got ringworm and are only just getting over it now. It's been a tough start to life for them but they are taking life by storm. They are so unique and have such different personalities. I love these guys to bits, they have taught me so much.
Thank you @kitteninn :') #kittens #kitteninn #foster #tabby #love

Being in a wheelchair for almost two months has sure made me appreciate LEGS THAT WORK. Also arms, beause mine have been MVPs lately, picking up the slack for my lower body. My legs have done some very great things for me, like hiked me up some beautiful mountain trails, propelled me through some awesome sunken shipwreck dives and let me live a pretty normal life. Can't wait to start physio. I'm very thankful to be able to walk again, hopefully very soon. Equally thankful for the loved ones that have been taking care of me.

Hi everyone. Some of you have been asking what does that post about "LOL everyone knows now" mean? Well this is it. I'm Robby and I am gay.
_____
I've hid so much and lied to so many trying to keep this a secret for most of my life. I hated myself for it, and wished and prayed almost everyday to be straight. I honestly thought this secret would stay with me until my grave.
_____
I desired to have a normal life and feared that what I was attracted to would be a controversy. I wanted to have a simple life of love. But, because of who I am and what I'm attracted to, simple is the last word I would use. But that's OK.
____
I fully embrace who I am and who God made me to be. I always felt like diluted wine, that people wouldn't see me as the Robby they always knew but NOW I feel like aged wine, the best version of myself. I get to live my most authentic life and above all that's what God wants. To be honest with myself, those around me, and HIM.
___
Some will disagree with my lifestyle and that's ok but before you pass judgment spend time with those you don't fully understand(me).
__
Before anything love.

To my family, friends and loved ones around the world, I want to take the time and explain to you all my absence from the beautiful game of rugby.
For those who are unaware, I suffered a head collision playing against Uruguay in
February that resulted in severe brain bleeding.
It nearly cost me my life.
If it weren’t for the medical staff at USA Rugby & SAAMC Hospital, it certainly would have - I owe those amazing people my life.
After hundreds of hours of rehab and treatment, I am proud to say I am physically and mentally fully functional.
It’s hard to describe how thankful I am to be alive and living a normal life.

After a long discussion with my loved ones unfortunately, I am retiring from the sport of rugby. Making this decision has been the single hardest act I have ever had to do,
I simply cannot risk another injury.
Players, parents, coaches, and trainers all need to increase awareness of head injuries in the sport and I am committed to help spread the information.
I want to say thank you to everyone that has helped and supported me in my rugby career.

From coaches who taught me, to the medical staff that healed me, to the teammates that turned into brothers, and to the wonderful family, friends and fans who motivated me every day to be the best I could be - thank you from the very bottom of my heart.
Playing rugby has been the most amazing and enjoyable ride any person could ask for.
The life-long memories, friends, and values will stay with me forever.
Although my playing days are behind me, my love of rugby will never fade. I am looking forward to passing on the knowledge I have learned in my 14 year career to the next generation.

Again, thank you for all your support. May rugby to grow in this country to the level of greatness it deserves and the values that we learn from it spread good throughout our world.

God bless and Go Eagles.

Sincerely,
Zack Test

Soooo this past year hasn’t been the easiest for me.. public controversies, bad press, friendship fallouts, business teams stealing from me, lawsuits, & the list goes on... it’s been rough... The easy option would’ve been to give up.. to let all of that shit get to me, to let it slow me down, to just go back to a normal life... & I truly thought about those things as options... but i had to wake tf up.. i had to realize that nothing worth having comes easy.. I realized that the world was just testing me to see what i was truly made of & most importantly i realized that these “lows” make me appreciate the “highs” even more & i had to realize that “after every storm comes a rainbow” ... & I kept on thinking about that every time i felt defeated or felt like i wanted to give up... i never stopped thinking about it.. “after every storm comes a rainbow” ... I knew I had to keep on fighting through all the bs & noise.. & tonight (this fight) for ME PERSONALLY was the final fight not just physically but mentally to show myself that i could conquer the adversity & that i had made it through the storm... because of my mindset... “after every storm comes a rainbow” .. this saying helped me so much every single day that I wanted to turn it into something bigger than me.. I wanted everyone else to be able to use this saying in there life’s.. i wanted to create a movement... so I worked for months to create a new clothing brand called “RNBO” ... because in life you have to focus on the positive, the light, the rainbows. & SO tonight after MONTHS of hard work we finally celebrate winning this long battle of adversity & the launch of my new clothing brand @shoprnbo (go to the link in my bio to get a shirt or sweatshirt from the “storm white collection” & be the first people to join RNBO family. We are only selling a limited 500 units so hurry before they sell out) #RNBO rise n’ be original BABBYYYY🌈

Do you ever feel you are like an eagle in a chicken yard—grounded and pent up when you should be soaring? You know there is much more within you than you are experiencing and expressing in your life right now. You know God has a great purpose for your life—and you cannot escape or ignore the inner urge to “go for it.” Know this: all eagles are uncomfortable in a barnyard; they all long for the clear, blue, open skies. When you are living in a place that keeps you from being who you were made to be and doing what you are meant to do, you will be uncomfortable, too. But also realize that people around you may not understand your desire to break out of the box. They may want to clip your wings.

When you hear their comments and questions, something inside of you may ask, “What is wrong with me? Why do I think as I think? Why do I feel this way? Why can’t I just settle down and live a normal life like everybody else?” The reason you cannot just settle down is that you are not a chicken; you are an eagle! You will never feel at home in that chicken yard, because you were made for something bigger, more beautiful, and more fulfilling.

I encourage you today to fan the flame inside of you. Fan it until it burns brightly. Never give up on the greatness for which you were created, never try to hide your uniqueness, and never feel you cannot do what you believe you were made to do. Realize that your hunger for adventure is God-given; wanting to try something new is a wonderful desire, and embracing life and aiming high is what you were made for. You are an eagle!

Prayer Starter: Father, thank You for the greatness You have placed inside of me—the desire to be more, do more, and soar higher. Help me to approach life with boldness and never settle for anything less than what You have for me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Circa June 2010, Jr. Nationals in Chicago.  I placed 10th out of 36, not bad for it  to be my 1st national show and second show period. It was also my last show, before my life was completely changed by breast cancer.
💛
In this picture I had already found the lump that had the cancer. I found it probably in September/October of 2009 but it didn't bother me and those lumps were "normal" to me so I didn't get it checked. I kept living and eventually the lump seemed bigger (still no pain) so I grudgingly went to get it checked in March of 2011. On the 29th of March 2011, my life changed forever. I was diagnosed with HER 2 positive aggressive stage 1 breast cancer. 💛
From this picture, I look perfectly fine but you don't have to look sick to be sick. 🤷🏽‍♀️ If you KNOW there is something abnormal with your health, DO 👏🏽 NOT👏🏽WAIT👏🏽 to get it checked. It's better to know than to not know. Get checked!
💛
Part of me wonders if the lump wasn't cancer would I still be consumed by this sport? Would I still be eating an EXTREME diet, lifting, and cardioing myself to death? Would my outlook on health and fitness be different? Would I be as strong mentally as I am today? Would I be a grateful or faithful?
💛
I don't know the answer to all of these questions but I don't miss that extreme portion of my life and I love the BALANCE I have now. This journey I've been on the past 7 years has molded my faith and shaped how I look at my life, my health, those around me, and how I chose to share and interact it with others. My body in this picture is A1 but I wasn't enjoying the moments. I was consumed by a stage look. I wasn't REALLY LIVING!!! I was blessed with a second chance that not everyone gets. You really only have 1 life, make the best of it, take care of your body!! 💛

The body is simply incredible and nature did it all while I just kept my body healthy and mind happy while it grew and pushed out a human!
#nicspostpartum journey has already begun, because first is the craziness of newborn which happened, and now finding flow, healing and allowing it all! In 3-4 Weeks more I’ll get into some activity and getting out of the house! 💡 DID YOU KNOW?
It can take 6-8 Weeks for a woman to full recover from pregnancy and giving birth, sometimes longer.
Get back to normal life and moving a lot too early, and you’ll be operating only at 80% healed for long while and it could take awhile to ever feel 100% again. Take the time to heal and recover and you’ll not only get to 100% again but you’ll remain there and have fully healed. So many women are up, active, out of the house and more so soon, they may not know what they are really putting their bodies through. Another reason why maternity leave is so important for women..fight for it! Dude our bodies just moved, morphed and shaped to make way for a human, it even completely relaxed all its muscles, moved your hips and pelvis - and then not to mention the event of labor and birth that’s like running 10 marathons or more. Seriously my lungs and chest were exhausted!!! From the breathing and the focus from our birth. Your #uterus also has to shrink back to normal size and it weighs more still in the first 4 Weeks of #postpartum. ALSO, You know that big #placenta that came out of you after giving life to your baby?? That’s a huge circle inside of you that is now void of the placenta and is a healing wound instead. Omg and don’t get me started on the hormones. 🙈🙈🙈 Now with vaginal #birth, no complications and healthy mom, working out can come sooner I’m sure, it can be all about feeling ready to get back in the groove! - but why not take the time to heal yourself inside and out, be with your newborn and truly recover! I say take advantage 🤷🏼‍♀️💓

Thanks for coming along with me on my journey and loving on me! #selflove
