I share them because, honestly, sometimes sh!t is so wild that I don’t even know what else to do but to write about them. And that’s where I’m at right now. Sh!t’s wild and I’m just gonna write about it.
⚠️ This one’s long and finishes in the first comment. Sorry not sorry.
.
.
I’ve shared many times that my dad disowned me via an email that ended, “have a nice life.”
Today, a new episode of this story emerged. Today, I opened up a manila envelope that had my dad’s actual Will and Testament, something that I never expected to see or read.
And on the first page I found the legalese for “have a nice life.”
.
The Will not only says my dad was, “specifically disinheriting” me, but also that I “will be considered to have predeceased” him and that he has “intentionally not provided” for me.
Bruh.
As if the email version of “I’m disowning you” wasn’t heart piercing enough, the legal version was all kinds of extra.
Like, I didn’t actually know that there was a legal way of saying, “you’re dead to me,” but, welp, there is!
If that ain’t some cold blooded sh!t to read, I dunno what is.
It sounds like it’s out of a movie. It feels like it’s out of a movie.
But it’s not. And I know it’s not because I have the papers right here next to me with those damn-near bone chilling words staring at me as I stare at them.
Here’s the thing I find most…interesting (is there a better word?) about the whole thing.
The day I got the email, I was devastated. I handled it well, said what I needed to say back, but I was ripped to shreds inside.
The day he passed away a year and a half later, we still had yet to speak, let alone resolve anything and were actually in the midst of some legal battles. That day, those shreds were shredded.
Today, upon receiving this last Will and Testament in which he is disinheriting me and also ps I’m dead to him, oddly the shredded shreds have found some tape.
I know right? How?

Just peeking back into the weekend on this Monday morning at the Yoga for Athletes/Yoga for Strength event I attended with mindbodygreen x CorePower Yoga.
I thought I’d share a few of the tips I gave for any athletes looking to add yoga to their routine / reminders for those who already practice.
.
. ✨ Stay hydrated! 
It's easy for anyone to get dehydrated, but this is especially true if you are highly active. This becomes even more true if you're taking heated classes.
✨ Consider sports-specific needs
Are you a runner? A cyclist? A swimmer? A basketball player? Your body's needs will vary based on your sport. Make sure you pay extra attention to the specific parts of the body that are tend to be overworked in your given sport. In general, hips, hammies and quads often need some extra TLC, but there may be other areas that do as well.
✨ Remember that it's more than physical. 
Sure your body needs the extra stretching and care, but the benefits go beyond that. Learning how to focus, clear your mind, focus on your breath and listen to your body will help you accelerate in any type of sport.
✨ Keep your body guessing. 
Whether you take different types of classes or try new instructors (who may focus on different things) or mix in other types of movement/meditation to keep yourself from a mental or physical rut.
✨ Don't neglect other forms of recovery
Yoga is obviously very helpful, but so are types of recovery. As an athlete, recovery needs to be a priority, so consider adding as many methods of recovery that you can. Think foam rolling, massage, acupuncture, chiropractic, float tanks, etc. .

I just gave myself the most tangible demonstration of how often our greatest fears are success. I almost got something i wasn’t sure i could do and then scared myself sh!tless.
.
I’ve done (and posted) a straddle up in forearmstand before using the TRX for assistance, but I have yet to get that same straddle up in handstand (aka prep for the press up). I wanted to learn it with control and not momentum so I’ve been very far from anywhere close to it.
.
Just now I was practicing my descent in the forearmstand* and then decided to try the handstand for kicks and giggles. On the first try, I freaked myself out right as I was actually getting up into it. And I bailed so NOT gracefully. Unfortunately the camera didn’t actually turn on while i tried the first one, but please believe that first bail was epic.
.
Then I tried again. Bail. Then again and I got it! But then I freaked out on how to come down with control. So i bailed from the top. Then I came down with a bit of control (shown) and then more control (also shown).
.
Dear Universe, I see you, yo. Noted. Thanks for the reminder Stop being scared to actually succeed in any or all of the scary things. 📝. Got it.
.

*⏪ swipe ⏪ to see the forearmstand
** peep my stories for a handful of bails 🤦🏻‍♀️.

I said the other day that I’m here for the work. The hard work. The personal work. The work we tend to run from.
.
Sometimes doing this kind of work means taking a long drive to listen to thought-provoking books and then immediately listening to J Cole to allow the words to sink in and integrate. Sometimes it means shutting off social media and shutting out my normal world or sitting on a beach or jumping rope or running or changing up my routine and my environment or going on a yoga retreat or grabbing a journal and writing out everything in my brain or seated meditation or walking meditation or breath work.
Sometimes it’s uncovering some hard personal truths, sitting with them, finding the courage to face them, own them and then being willing to pivot.
And sometimes it’s all of these things in 2.5 days, like this last weekend.
I’m currently emerging with a full heart from a sh!t ton of self-work that came in all of these forms. It was a lot. It was pretty eye opening. It highlighted how much more work there is to be done. And, I’m still here for it. Happy Labor Day, indeed.

The emotional work.
The mental work.
The work that no one knows that you’re doing except you.
The much harder work.
It’s so damn hard. I mean, really hard. And It never gets easier. But just like all the other work you put in, you keep getting better.

Show up to work. On time. Prepared. And relentlessly pursue better.

As a kid, the only thing active I liked to do was play basketball. And i think initially i liked it because, well, Jordan. I guess also because I was tall for my age so I could basically just stand there on the court & grab the ball over people’s heads.
Clearly, the most athletic, y’all. #🙈.
.
Outside of b-ball practice/games, I was essentially inactive &, clearly, not that athletic. I couldn’t run a mile, couldn’t do a pull-up, couldn’t do a push-up. I wrote extra credit reports in jr high PE so that I could get an A. Yes I’m so serious.
.
Truth is, I was living outside of my body. I was living outside & looking in & judging the sh!t out of what I saw in the mirror and at the number I saw between my feet on the scale. There was zero connection to this incredible vessel that I was living in. Zero. At first, my judgments got me to be more active, but for the sole purpose of trying to change my body for another — the image (of someone else’s body) that I wanted to see when I looked in the mirror and on the scale. I worked out a lot. I didn’t eat. Of course, I became more athletic because that’s just how incredible our bodies are — you train them and they adapt. I was just training in a very unhealthy way. I was still outside of my body looking in & I was never satisfied with what I saw. .
Fast forward to being 40, & I can do more now than I could even when I was in my 20s. Even with a fairly severe injury behind me, my body still can perform at a level than it did when I was younger.
.
Because I now live in my body.
No, my issues with my self image did not just disappear, but the utter disrespect that i had for my whole being gradually dissipated. It grew into respect. It grew into a new kind of love.
Because I now live IN my body.
Movement is a craving of the body to be celebrated for its magic.
We are our bodies.
We are meant to move.
We are #Made2Move.
We are moving all the time. Our organs, our bones, our muscles. Our minds. Our souls.
We are made for this.
We are meant to live in these insanely smart soul vehicles & they are to be celebrated for their magic.

✨Go do something good for your magical self. ✨

This very quickly escalated from “sorry we interrupted your yoga” when 2 of them passed by while we were shooting to all of these guys pictured in this first photo waving me over to show them how to do some yoga. And they didn’t want to do just one pose. “Ok, next one!”
.

Pretty f*cking epic.
Pretty f*cking hilarious.
And pretty f*cking dope photog for always capturing it all. ✊🏽.

Don’t get fooled by @Instagram quotes and inspo; real hustlers respect the recharge. If you get down to that 20%, you know the battery meter turns red.
Take the time to get yourself back to green. 🔋.
If you’d do it for your phone, you can certainly do it for yourself.

You know which dance I mean.
It’s the dance between when the 🧠 says “I’m scared” and the ❤️ says “do it anyway.”
It’s also the dance between being comfortable and being extremely uncomfortable.
It might also be the dance between being good enough and being extraordinary.
And it could be the dance between settling and thriving.
.
.
.
Even if it’s a constant dance, the important thing is that you at least show up for it.
.
Give me a 💃🏻 or 🙋🏽‍♂️ or 🙋🏻‍♀️ if you’re here for it. ✨ Do the dance. Be scared. Take the risk anyways. Be more scared. And then take another risk. Do. The. Dance. ✨
