The art of contentment is the most direct path to becoming fulfilled with the type of life that you live. Many people aren’t happy with the lives that they live and just seek to get through the day. These people don’t connect with anything and seek to numb themselves away from their sober state. If you can master this art of contentment then you will set yourself on a path of leading a fucking powerful life - one that would probably exceed your wildest dreams.
Gotta dig deep for those last few reps... where you encounter the most resistance and push through, that’s where GROWTH happens! True in training and true in life. 💪🏽🙏🏽 Description: video shows view of a man from behind(me) in navy blue workout shirt and shorts, jumping to take hold of pull-up bars and then completing 10 pull-ups and struggling with the last few.
Here is the thing. Pain, physically or psychologically, is important. Failure is important. Without them there is no growth and no learning.
Life is full of problems and success is not a destination, it's the journey.
Solving one problem will inevitably create another one. Learning one skill or improving will create a new challenge.
This is the reason I find stories about failure more inspiring and helpful than success stories.
It’s not a secret that we all “talk to ourselves”... .
Every single day we affirm things to ourselves. Usually about the way we look, the way we feel, and the things that we have in our lives.
What most of us don’t realize is that leads to us strengthening that thought pattern and ultimately making what we obsess about a priority in our lives! .
Affirmations are an excellent way for you to start to take control of some of the thoughts that you have each and every day. As you’re reading this there’s probably several thoughts that you have consistently that you know I’m not serving you in your life anymore. .
So I’m going to suggest that you don’t try and delete those thoughts rather replace them with thoughts that are going to help you feel better and do better. .
Write down those affirmations and read them to yourself each and everyday morning and night and you will be sooo surprised at how quickly your confidence builds up!! .
DM me with more questions and topics you want to discuss!!!
Yesterday was a super emotional day. Yesterday Tiana and Naveen went Down In New Orleans for the last time on D27b. Even though it was our last performance here, I am sure the future is going to be so bright. @nelly10232 we have worked so hard this year, and it definitely paid off. We went from being 2 single skaters, to an actual pair team, and I am so proud of us. And to my d27b family I love all of you guys, and I will miss you all so much! However, I am sure I will see you all down the road! I am so happy I have all of you in my life, and no matter where I go, d27 will always be my home.
This new journey that I have decided to choose has actually changed the way I think about things. The second picture is a picture of me after graduation. I had weave bundles sewn in. The second picture is a picture of my natural hair. It was super damaged but the day I took that picture was the day that I decided to try something new. I wanted to start over. Best choice I have ever made as shown on picture four. Picture five is the after results. Picture six is the before and after. I am happy with my choice!!!! Every since I got my hair cut it has grown an inch and a half. So quick!!!! Many people ask me why I cut my hair , why I wanted to go that short, how is this gonna help me out...well my reply to that is if you wanted to grow in life you have to get rid of all dead ends in order to maintain a healthy stage. Not just your hair but every dead end you have. Also short hair is easy for me. All I do is apply water, deep conditioner and/or a moisturizer and go. I will be posting growth pictures along the way of my journey. And the answer to the first picture is Waist Length!! I have to constantly moisturize my hair everyday in order for it to grow healthy and thick. I will keep you all updated with products I use and my wash'n go's and etc. 😘😘❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤
Spiritual Journey 〰️ Most people in the modern world have resigned themselves to a cliched existence, indulging in endless distractions. They go through life with a minimal or pseudo-faith, and avoid grasping the emptiness of their lives. They are endlessly haunted by the shallowness of their relationships, neurotic issues and inescapable loneliness. And yet there’s so much more to us as a species than what we really know. You and I carry the most mysterious and magnificent qualities within us imaginable, yet we unknowingly guard and protect the great gift that is our Souls from the world.. We are capable of creating deeply meaningful, mystical and fulfilling lives. We are capable of finding our true calling. If we embark on this adventure, we begin the process of gaining self-understanding and reclaiming our precious soul gifts. 🕊

It's simple as that... Be a good person and if people get out of your life then understand that it's their loss and not yours. Be an awesome awesome person that's it. I'm kind to everyone and it's your loss if you are nasty to me.
