This is a long one: I had a long day at work yesterday followed by the pressure of starting a new job at 7:30 this morning. Im tired AF and mental energy is low. So i went to the gym after work... but almost lost my mind. 😕😠A few days ago at jiu jitsu my dominant hand/wrist got fucked up and I’ve been struggling to do some of the most basic, everyday tasks. And it hurts worse because I forget not to use it because it’s my right hand! I’ve been trying not to let a dumb tendon injury stop me from doing what I need to do— working, working out, etc., but I’ll admit it’s definitely discouraging to walk into the gym and be limited by what I can do with my body due to pain or lack of ROM... something I haven’t experienced in a long time. Naturally, I get frustrated.. so patience is something I’ve been working on. I lack it in almost all areas. I love instant gratitude and everything NOWNOWNOW, whether I’m in the gym, ig, driving, anything, but in reality that’s not how life works. And I have to remind myself that my body needs patience and time and rest in order to perform well, look good, and be the best it can be... and it’s ok to take a break sometimes, or slow down a little. I remind myself that i will improve, and it will take time, and to trust the process. Any of y’all struggle with that? #thishurtsomuchtotype #lotsofletters #ow
Back to ur regularly scheduled programming. #🍑
I woke up like this. ✨
I am DONE giving a fuck what other people think or trying to make others happy. For too long i lived my life trying to be a “people pleaser.” I cared too much whether I offended people, if I was doing something wrong, if I was making others happy... and in that, I lost myself and sacrificed my own happiness. I lost my spark when I was told I used to be a firecracker. So this year, I decided I’m living for ME. I WILL be selfish. I WILL be happy. And i WILL get my confidence & glow back. If you don’t like it, too bad. Also, y’all really need to clean your damn mirrors. #happyhumpday
