#throwbackthursday . This is the part where I tell you patients is a virtue. A lot of people have been asking me what’s next or when I’m coming back ? I have to remind myself and everyone else I need to patient, the time with come and I will be ready. This is a process and I want to give myself the best opportunity to come back 💯 percent this next go around. As of now I can ensure you that I’m doing everything in my power to make that happen through proper rest, Nutrition , cardio , and physical therapy 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏. Everyday is one step closer.
I have some bad news. For those of you who don’t know, I’ve had a shoulder injury for quite a while which caused me to have chronic dislocations. Recently, it’s been at it’s worse. I had to get an MRI and i found out that the first time i dislocated, I fractured my joint socket and tore my labrum. Because of this i have to get surgery and put my track and lifting career on hold for a bit. It’s upsetting because sports are my outlet, they’re my happy place. To have to give it up for a while breaks my heart, but I’m thankful i have awesome teammates, friends, coaches, and trainers who will support me the whole way. For the ones who know me know i will hop back on the grind as soon as i can. I will never give up on what i love no matter the restrictions. I’ve just gotta keep on pushing and keep on moving forward. With this, recovery and patience is the key. Thank you to the ones who have supported me and the ones who continue to support me. #patience
Life is such a journey isn't it!? I can't imagine life without knowing God though. A life without his word for guidance, love to cast out all fear, the peace that passes all understanding, hope for eternal life, and so many more reasons...you fill in the blank. 😉
Parenting is a gift, a blessing, a joy and more. But it is also challenging, frustrating, and down right hard sometimes.
I need the help of God, Jesus and the holy spirit every day while training children as we are instructed in his word to do so. And seriously sometimes I want to give up. And give in. But it will not help. I was made strong willed for good. And he helps me every step of the way when I ask him to. It takes much time, and mental energy. But then...... Comes the moment when they finally obey. And it was all worth it. #perseverance#patience#hope#reward
She refused to one for over and hr. And then she wanted to take a pic to send to daddy. #realjoysmiles and now she's singing a song about honesty (totally not related to her reason for training, but nonetheless...she is singing praises and good words) 😂 to God be the glory!!!!!!!!! He is my Jehovah jireh
And this is why our journey is called a .....
Anything worth having takes consistency and patience. 🌱⌚
No such thing as "overnight success". This is especially true when you're trying to reverse a lifetime of unhealthy lifestyle habits.

Oh, sweet little Annie. It's pretty clear after 24 hours of observation and light interaction that she has been abused on top of the neglect. She's incredibly distrustful of hands and feet. As I was sitting in her pen tonight these lyrics popped in my head, "Annie are you OK? Are you OK, Annie? You've been hit by, you've been struck by, a smooth criminal." It will take a long time, but I am hopeful that with a lot of work we can get her to trust again. #annieareyouok#abusesurvivor#patience#sanctuary#rabbitsofinstagram#fluffybunnyrabbitsanctuary
I’m pretty sure God gave me my son because he has an amazing sense of humor. I’m almost certain when Mitch was born God said “this’ll be good.”
Pre-Mitch I thought I was an awesome parent.
Post-Mitch, this small little man tries my patience on a daily basis with his loud shouts, nonstop chatter, epic tantrums and body slams that he thinks are hugs.
I take many deep breaths and have had to remove myself from situations so as not to say or do something I would regret.
BUT there’s no one that loves as hard as this tiny human. If I didn’t work on my patience I would have squelched these sweet moments.
I’m still a work in progress and this almost 4 year old has a lot of growing up to do.
And to that I say Jesus pass the wine.
G R O W T H ✨ What does it look and feel like to you? For me, it’s messy. There are a lot of different parts and colors and textures to the experience and they all interact with one another, sometimes in unpredictable ways, similar to an ecosystem. For me, growth is not linear. Yes the trajectory is steady, in the right direction, but hardly linear. I have lapses in my thinking and behaviors ALL the time still where I resort back to being driven by fear instead of love. (Oversimplification but u get my drift) This year I find myself going back to the clear and simple roots of Yoga, advice from one of the oldest and most sacred yoga texts ~ the Bahagvad Gita. The Gita tells all of us who practice three important components necessary for progress on the path of spiritual growth: 1.) TIME. ❤️ Show up for your practice every single day even if it is just 5 minutes of mindfulness as you’re sitting in your car before work! 2.) COMMITMENT. ❤️ To me, right now, this means riding the challenging waves, staying true to my experience without letting the uncomfortable stuff run out on others, and practicing my mantras that help the tough feelings move through me. And 3.) ENTHUSIASM. ❤️ If you know me then you know this one comes the most naturally. 🤣😘 But seriously, the other translation for this one is “child like vigor and wonder.” What an amazing practice eh?! Stick with it you guys!!! Even for the pockets of peace and bliss, the fleeting taste of the divine, ALL the work is worth it. #firstname.lastname@example.org
Today I learned that after not squatting since about May, I suck at it! Everything is tight and my form is not great. So, what am I going to do about it? Yoga! I was able to do a 45 minute yoga video, which if you remember from beginning of December I couldn’t even manage 5 minutes because of my ankle mobility. As much as I feel like I am not healing at times, this proves that I am. I just need to have patience. I think adding in 3 days of yoga will be beneficial for my body and my mind. 🤗🙏🏻💑🧘♀️
Thought I’d change it up with a lil quote today!
Change doesn’t happen overnight. Every good thing takes time. One cheat meal won’t mess up your progress just as much as working out all day long won’t show you results for awhile. It’s so easy to get discouraged when trying to accomplish anything because you don’t see immediate results. Your best will always be enough if you’re willing to wait for the proof. Trust the process, enjoy the journey, and never give up. Your growth WILL happen, just be patient. 🌸
