What do you want?.
.
Probably the most important question most people will ever answer.

Why?.
.
It will set your #trajectory for life... and also, the obstacles.

Just like this.

On a recent sunset hike, the Queen spotted what she calls a "heart rock" about a #mile or so into the desert.

She mentioned bringing it back and I laughed and said, "Good luck with that" and we both hiked back and got on with the evening.

Well, it turns out she needed no luck... because she was willing to #dothehardthing to get what she wanted.

I came home the next day to find a 30 lb #heartrock in our flower bed.

She was willing to #pay the price of lugging what I considered to be useless dead weight a mile through the desert, hugging it and holding it overhead until she reached the house.

So fuck me.

The piper was paid, and she got what she wanted.

Most people would negotiate the price they need to pay to get what the want.

The successful just pay it and get on with it.

If there's a greater #lesson in this life, please share it with me... otherwise, riddle me this.

What #separates you from what you want... What hard thing are you #avoiding that would give it to you?.

Don't worry about thinking outside the box. At least not right now.

Just remember to #expand the box... especially when #squatting high percentage loads.

In the video, I'm at the end of a long set of #heavier work for me.

And, like most people, my knees want to shoot #inward (valgus) rather than #outward (varus) as the load weighs on me.

The knee being driven outward keeps the #glutes engaged, so we want a varus action on the knee.

So I remind myself to expand the box.

Imagine from shoulder to toe, and from right knee to left knee, you are inside a #rectangular box.

Cue: So I think of my shoulder pressing against the top edge of the imaginary box, my feet press the bottom edge... Then, I remember to press the sides of the box outward with my knees by driving them into a #varus position.

Expanding the box out and up.

Give it a shot with your athletes and let me know your thoughts below.

"Social media is not about social interaction... it's about social incentives." - J. Archer.

Cast Your Own Shadow.

Stop. Don't #like and don't share... just resonate for a tick.

Now, I've ranted about the #dangers of placing too much stock on social media countless times.

Not because it's #inherently bad, but because humans are generally unaware of how it #shapes behaviours.

And the zeitgeist... or spirit of now.

Today, people are using "liking" or "hearting" to determine their self #worth.

No fucking joke.

Some read positive or negative responses to social as an #indication they should #be something they aren't.

If a post doesn't get the play they think it should, it comes down and is #replaced with one that will.

Even though the #original post represents WHO They Really ARE and WHAT They Really BELIEVE.

Fucksakes.

And what tends to happen? People literally start to shape their posts and language to #popular opinion.

An individual's identity is falsified.

Their #authenticity falls away.
.
Why is it that all the #gurus preach authenticity all of a sudden?.
.
Because it's fucking #scarce in the marketplace. "Truth is treason in an empire of lies"... and treason is interesting at the very least.

Be your truth.

Cast your own shadow... and leave your own legacy.

I started this social media thing 436 days ago... and still, what lights me up to this day is knowing I'm attracting people to the @hardwodder tribe who give all they have for all the want.

Just when I feel like quitting someone throws me a comment or message that proves I'm creating impact.

And impact > approval.

If you're vibing on this... check out @andyfrisella and give him a listen. His work inspired today's work.

"No valid plans for the future can be made by those who have no capacity for living now." - Alan Watts.

Its #easy to get caught up in easy.

Much of modern life is physically easy... it demands little of our bodies.

This is both a #blessing and a curse.

Blessings like you don't have to #hunt or #farm to eat, you don't have to carry water, or even walk your happy ass to town to pick up supplies for your home.

The free #time gained from capitalism and mechanization has lifted living standards for the entire world.

And what do we do with all this free time and abundance? Well, that, my friends, is the curse.

The average North American uses his free time and abundance to blow 2.8 hours a day in front of TV, 200 minutes a day on a mobile phone, and 101 minutes per day driving.

Just these 3 items amount to more than 20 years of your life on largely non #physical and non productive activities.

More than 2 #decades... of what? Sedentary consumption.

This is not living. Maybe it's not dying, but little else.

All that you want for your #body and #mind is found in those places where you give your capacity away.

You #capacity to move, to learn... read, write, and produce physical and mental works.

Extra capacity made possible by #modernization is truly a precious gift.

Most will use it to get #fat and lazy.

Consumers are a ubiquitous.

Help us #reverse that trend... #produce more than you consume.
Use yourself for creation... that starts with caring for your body.

Move yourself today.

"Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers." - Voltaire.

The fastest path to #death is being stagnant.

If you consider yourself immovable... nature will move you or #grind you away like the rock of a riverbed.

If you consider yourself learned... nature will show you how #ignorant you really are by revealing a glimpse of her mysteries.

Death comes quickly when this is forgotten.

No, you may not die physically... but how many dead eyed people roam the earth in a state of quiet desperation?.
.
Dead on the inside with no new questions.

Learning nothing new, refusing change, and allowing their bodies to deteriorate.

Unhappy and unfulfilled.

If anti-depressant #prescriptions are any indication, the numbers are off the charts.

I was awakened to this idea 435 days ago... and each day since, the #first thing I do every morning is move and learn... and my #results are greater.

The reality prior to this was I #slept through the mornings... so by the time I was up and working, I was playing catch up all day.

I held fixed #mindset around being a "night person". And was very #resistant to change.

Now... It's a mile and a half to the gym, so I walk it there and back #listening to smart people as I go.

Feeding my mind and moving my body is my morning #normal now.

The priority each day is to be #useful and productive.

I do not wait for externalities to validate my existence... I actively and passionately seek to #give you value every day.

Am I a #nightperson or a #morningperson now? I am whatever the fuck I chose to be.

That is my power. And, it's a #power you also possess if you chose to claim it.

I’ve been spending time with the word “reflection”. Do we reflect what our hearts are made of? Do we mirror the love we receive? Because when I think about every person, moment, love, and hurt in my life; there is so much. Over the last couple of months, there has been a lesson I’ve been learning. Today being the first day of cognizance; no matter how I may be received by others, it is my duty to be so much. Whether that be love. Joy. Passion. Fire. I want to put something in your soul that you can’t shake. I want you to be different when I leave you. I must not fear the hands these gifts fall in for rejecting me, accepting me, or reciprocating. I must not fear at all. I’ve been given something that gives. And I must honor that gift by giving it fully. Whole heartedly. Fearlessly. Furiously. Deeply. As many of you have told me - I’m going to move you. I’m going to shake you until you feel something change within. To be candid with you, I’ve been asking for this power over the last year. To move people and to change lives. So today, I step up to the plate. I know that I can do this. I trust this heart and these hands to carry me to those who need me. Those who see me. Hands up, heart open. Happy Tuesday, y’all. 💕🌌⚡️ #boddhisatva #openheart #fearless #babewiththepower #reflections #mirror #bareyoursoul #souledout #honorthework #receive #release #pranayama

"Begin at once to live, and count each separate day as a separate life." - Seneca.

So many times... #humans think past equals present equals future.

That they are who they are... now and forever.

But this is true only for the #weak body and #fixed mind.

The weak side of you wants food it doesn't need, rest it hasn't earned, and ease in general.

It wants its base needs sated. And not much else.

And years of giving into the weak side gives us no #health or wellness... only #depression and disease.

That may be the reality #today, yet it does not have to be tomorrow.

Each new day is an #opportunity to choose a new set of decisions.

Doing so necessarily means your #yesterdays do not define you.

You're #free from your past the moment you choose to be.

And in that place you have power. You have the ability to #move toward your targets.

You learn the self #respect that comes when you do the hard thing. The thing that furthers your #body and mind.

Ease is a #lie sold to the gullible. The weak. The dead inside.

Consider who you must #become to have the body and mind... the wellness you really desire.

Do what that person would do.

Now.

"All married #couples should learn the art of battle as they should learn the art of making love. Good #battle is objective and honest - never vicious or cruel. Good battle is healthy and constructive, and brings to a marriage the principles of equal partnership." - Ann Landers.

Possible titles for this post include.

1. Who knew Ann Landers was so pimp?.
.
2. Even Ann Landers knows the value of honest #conflict in relationships.

3. Seriously... Ann Landers just told you to #fight with your spouse.

In any case, the Italian Canadian American Immigrant and I have fought, made up and made a little #love throughout the course of her landing in her new home.

And yes, it was her birthday this past week.

The photo above was taken at her favorite Mexican restaurant (which I'll tell you about in another post) just after downing some great food and beverages.

We were out celebrating.

We were also out colliding.

Much of what we want to create as a couple is still in process. And we both have different ways of seeing how best to move forward.

We both argue hard for our respective points of view. Why? Because we know that nothing weak can withstand the fire of scrutiny.

Bad ideas and poor results can never stand up to real talk. The bullshit stories we like to tell ourselves fall apart in the face of objectivity.

Fact (what is) vs fiction (your story about what is) = no contest.

In relationships, objectivity can be seen as cruelty... we're taught from early on that a good relationship is perfect... No arguments. No disagreements.

Which translates to No Fucking Fire! No growth... no excitement. A stale calm of mediocrity until death do you part.

No thanks.

Give me a woman with strength enough to challenge me, and grace enough to listen.

This woman will bring out my best. And, in doing so, challenges me to do the same for her.

By all means... fight for what you want with your partner in a constructive way.

You'll both be better off.

"One touch of nature makes the whole world kin." - William Shakespeare.

@paleoappetite and I woke today feeling #grateful for another day under the sun.

So, after a little morning exercise, and reading... we couldn't pass up the opportunity to fire up the #scooters and ride to the #farmersmarket to pick up a few things for the week.

And, take in a few of the sights along the way.

Spring in #Arizona means everything is in full propagation mode.

The desert plants, which go largely missed or ignored by most visitors and natives alike, carry such brilliant #color and subtlety all at the same time.

It's a beauty for those who look deeply. Nothing is surface level about this environment.

To appreciate it, is to get out in it.

And to get to the best parts, requires getting #uncomfortable... whether its a hike through rocky terrain, being without shade or cover, or dealing with the high winds we have here in the foothills.

The work getting to remote areas gives you a reason to #celebrate the small flashes of nature's eye candy along the way.

As we rode home, I though about all the #hikes and #dirtbike adventures I've had here in the last 17 years.

The #mountains by our house here were calling... time to gear up and plan some days out.

May we meet each other out there and share an experience.

Key Note: Length is not a substitute for intensity.

It's so easy to fall into the fallacy of thinking that without the perfect shoe, you can't go for a run.

That without the perfect gear, you can't lift weights.

And without an hour in the gym and 30 minutes travel time, you can't get results.

I call bullshit.

Hit 3 sets of 2 minutes max burpees.

Knock out 50 push ups and 50 squats for time in your underwear.

Hit the local park and knock out some bodyweight hoisting.

We're talking minutes here... and you always have a few. Use them.

Preferably everyday... because the best workouts are the ones you consistently do.

Movement is a gift... just ask anyone who lacks your abilities.

My father had polio and it crushed his right leg. He has never known what it's like to run... how might he look at the "opportunity" to do so?.
.
When I go to that "I hate running" place in my head... I keep going and run a few extra paces for him.

When you feel the excuses come on... remember this: there is always a way to get in some movement.

“It’s good that you’ve learned that everything in life has its price. This is what the Warriors of the Light try to teach.” - Paulo Coelho.

Pay up.

To survive and thrive, #payment is required... of all living things.

Today, as the Queen and I walk to the gym, I am #noticing the whole of the desert is blooming.

Brilliant pinks, reds, yellows... in all directions.

You can see palo verde #blossoms litter the curb in our neighborhood near Daisy Mountain.

These trees survived the brutal heat of the sonoran desert, the limited water, the drought, and the winds... anything nature could throw at them for the last year.

And still they say... #fuck you, I will survive.

With all the #hardship... and with #noguarantee of success they combine all their scarce resources to produce brilliant yellow blossoms... just in the #hopes of attracting the help of bees to perpetuate the species.

They #live on.

I wonder if they would #complain about how hard their life is if they could.

How #unfair it is the other trees get more water. Nature doesn't care if they live or die... it is amoral.

It just is.

They teach us the #struggle is guaranteed... and that the positive result is not.

Knowing this; is to know how important it is to #enjoy the journey here.

You will pay your way whether you like it or not... wouldn't mixing in some joy and #gratitude make paying your way a little more enjoyable?.

"And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it." - Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist.

You can believe the world is a #hostile place.

You can believe the world is a #beautiful place.

You can believe any #outcome is possible or not, or that your time here or your experience here is of your own making or not.

Yet, the difference between what you #can do and what you #will do is paramount.

Can vs. Will.

One implies ability, the other... action.

@hardwoddder is a fitness and wellness #tribe of people who celebrate those who give all they have for all they want.

Why? Because fortes fortuna juvat.

We are not for the voyeurs, the perpetual victims, nor the irresponsible... we are for positive action toward what you want each day.

And getting back to the #original idea of why hardwodder exists during relaunch, I've chosen to get back to some original #design ideas.

Look for the first new gear to drop with a spin on the original #DefinitionOfPower shirts.

Few had them... everyone wanted one. Your #opportunity will soon be here.

Stay tuned as the first designs drop in the next days.

"What light is to the eyes - what air is to the lungs - what love is to the heart, liberty is to the soul of man." - Robert G. Ingersoll.

I wonder so hard about #sacrifice and #gratification some days.

In many ways these things are polar opposites.... and exclusive of one another.

It seems the only difference between the successful and the failed, is simply the level to which each will sacrifice and #dothehardthing now, or will give in to immediate gratification.

As such, between sacrifice and gratification is your liberty... you have complete freedom in how you move toward or against your own interests in the now.

Your lizard brain will tell you, "gratify yourself now!"... Fuck. Feed. Fight. Flee. And do it now.

It makes you a slave.

It causes pleasure in the moment and a lifetime of negative future consequences.

Two years ago, I had the pleasure of hosting an event with #hardwodder featuring both able and adaptive athletes competing on the same stage in Crossfit.

Athletes with palsy, missing limbs, and trauma.

Lindsay, pictured above had a bout with #sepsis and lost limbs... she then received donor arms and competed with others putting stress on the transplant.

Now, do people facing real #challenge get anything they want without sacrifice? Do the arms just magically work, is fighting off rejection easy, how about having to #honorthework necessary on the daily to continue to fight and improve mentally?.

No.

That shit is real. Hard. And constant.

Sacrifice is easy to see in these moments. Its exaggerated by trauma.

Back to you and me... are we willing to make our lives uncomfortable by choosing to sacrifice small comforts for big future possibilities?.
.
Eating yourself to poor health, fucking yourself into the #poorhouse with 6 kids you can't afford, and fleeing from difficult situations where you may be judged... never overcoming the base urges.

No bueno.

Your liberty allows you #agency and choice, and your lizard brain will want you to choose poorly.

You need #leverage over yourself... how can you convict yourself to make choices that in the moment may hurt, yet in the long run serve your highest purpose?.
.
What say you?

"Fasting is the first principle of medicine; fast and see the strength of the spirit reveal itself." - Rumi.

For the second weekend in a row, I am doing a 24 hour fast.

I'm testing the waters to see if a longer fast is warranted.

During the fast last weekend, I felt clearer mentally and although there was some hunger pangs toward the end, my body otherwise felt "cleaner and lighter" in just that short period of time.

3 to 5 days is suppose to be where the magic is... The metabolic and most restorative effects begin to show themselves in that time frame.

Yet, even in the 24 hour period, your body can rid itself of most all sugars and get you close to ketosis, provided your carbohydrates were moderated to begin with.

What are your thoughts on fasting... have you read any studies you can share on the topic?.

"If you're good, you're always looking over your shoulder." - Bruce Springsteen.

True story. "Son, Look out for the other person"... my dad always told me when I was a kid starting to drive.

He'd say, "it's not you that I worry about... there are crazy people behind the wheel. You have to watch for them." And so I did.

Except for that one time way back in the spring on the UGA campus when all the girls and their dresses were coming out.

I was driving a UGA truck delivering documents, and while checking out all the girls, I drove that truck right into the back of another car.

Ha! Slow speeds. No harm done. Just embarrassed.

Lesson learned... the hard way.

From then on I took it upon myself to be more responsible and aware of my environment.

Looking at the reality that surrounds me serves me. It gives me actionable data.

The same way that looking over your shoulder does when walking a dark alley.

The same way that knowing what your competitors are up to does when running a business.

I look over my shoulder because life is in constant flux. Things change on the regular.

What happens when you don't pay attention? You get a degree in women's studies and a job at Starbucks. You get a foreclosure notice because you lost your job and 401k in 2009.

Mainly, you get scared when Johnny Life throws his curveball.

Big changes are here.

Humans are living longer, A.I. is a real thing, more devices and sensors are coming online, and you are at the beginning of a whole new revolution of health, wealth, and connection.

Do you see your place in all this? Will your job be automated away? Will your health and wellness allow you to enjoy all these advancements coming out way? We'll see.

The point is this: Keep your head on a swivel. Look at your reality and move and shake accordingly.

Don't be left wondering where that car came from.

Its still Canada-ish in Canada right now... and I though of this moment of falling into the snow.

@cristina.marino.archer was facing what would become a long and arduous surgery... and we were coming back from a walk in subzero conditions, and still finding little ways to enjoy our journey.

And that's was it's all about... (forget the Hokey Pokey, eh?).
.
The thing is... the struggle on the path to anything you want is baked in.

It's there always.

Yet, can we rise above that knowledge and find little ways to enjoy our journey on this ball of mud.

Ways to add color. Expression. And ultimately fulfillment.

I know the answer is, "yes we can"... because ultimately it is a choice.

So, I guess the better question is... #WILL we?.
.
Will you?.

Let me know below.

"In nature there are neither rewards nor punishments - there are only consequences." - Robert G. Ingersol.

We humans, with our large brains, tend to complicate the simplicity of living.

People will tell you being fit is hard... eating clean is torture, forgetting the natural consequences of making bad decisions.

Fitness is simply the natural consequence of moving regularly, eating properly, and being around people and influences that keep you growing mentally and spiritually.

The rest is just marketing.

The answer is not in a bottle... or a drastic measure.

The results you seek are at the end of the consistent daily choices you make.

Either they serve you or they don't. And either way, you earn your consequences.

"As is a tale, so is life: not how long it is, but how good it is, is what matters." - Seneca.

Your Words Matter.

They hold great power over you.

They create your lifestyle and experiences.

There was a time when I though my words were nothing, though. And truthfully... they may be to others. That's perfectly ok.

I don't live their lives.

But it doesn't serve my interests to think my words have no value.

They are every bit as valuable as any quote from some dead guy in shaping my days.

More so.

I talk to myself and govern my actions every day. I am always influencing me... what if that talk and influence was shit?.
.
How would I feel about building the life I want? Confident. Or apathetic. Or stuck.

Or worse.

Your words matter and that matter most to you... whether you know it or not, the things you say to yourself, and those around you are like magnets.

They draw to you the right people and opportunities OR they repel those same things.

What are you saying to you? Fuck the rest of it... focus on your words and use them to effectively create.

Writing them down helps. It slows everything down so you can get into the spirit of the depths.

It allows you time to form clear thought patterns and see facts, not fabrications.

It brings clarity.

What say you? How do you think you value your own words?.

"There is small risk a general will be regarded with contempt by those he leads, if, whatever he may have to preach, he shows himself best able to perform." - Xenophon.

Lead yourself first.

And, watch the influence you have over you radiate outward as your mastery increases.

The quote above hits home for me.

Everytime I fail to perform to my potential, I think of the idea that my failings have a ripple effect.

Just like my successes.

This morning, I was struck by the idea that I have failed to keep my word to me countless times.

Missed goals, failed outcomes, or relationships all litter my path.

Yet, reality is this: humans do not do perfection.

So, what is there to do about all the misses that will inevitably accumulate over the course of a lifetime... and the answer seems to be: not very fucking much.

The past can not be changed.

It can, however, be your greatest teacher... if you allow yourself to be a humble student of those past moments.

Each one holds elements of your desires and dreams. Identify them and keep after them.

Each one holds a series of truths worth gold when studied. Use them in the present to shape the future.

You lead yourself in this way.

No guru necessary... for you are it. You always have been.

So as the sun rises over the mountains on my morning walk, I am grateful for the new day.
I am grateful for a whole new set of photons hitting this ball of mud in this grand series of rotations we call the universe.

This is opportunity to lead... to learn... that I may reflect and bring myself and those close to more, bigger, and better.

You woke today under the same sun I did... how will the new day find you being?.

"The purpose of training is to tighten up the slack, toughen the body, and polish the spirit." - Morihei Ueshiba.

Training.

The evidence of training, or lack thereof, makes its presence known in both the #physical and #mental arenas of our lives.

It shows up everywhere and all the time.

It's easy to see the body sweat to #cool itself under exertion... and making #sweatangels from wet clothing is demonstrable proof of work done.

Yet, what happens inside the athlete is more difficult to see... you have to look a little deeper, but it can be seen in the "how" someone trains.

Purposeful training demands consistency, efficacy, and honesty.

These traits exercised over time create and form a lifestyle.

One where you do all your reps to the best of your ability... or you don't.

Whether it's #thrusters or putting your cart back in the corral at the local grocery store... do full reps.

Each #rep done says something about how you think and how you want to be known.

Good relationships, being a person of value, enriching your mind, and deepening your understanding of self... all require effective training.

Daily reps.

If you're strong and fast, good.

If you're strong and fast and a man or woman of great character and discipline, great... I want to know you.

"Most powerful is he who has himself in his own power." - Seneca.

Power.

A few posts back, I told you the story of how Cristina and I got into it.

She's moving here, and all this time has been living and speaking of her fear in doing do... of uprooting her life.

And me, being me, decided I had heard this story one too many times to give yet another shit, and decided to go full metal jacket on that story.

Which didn't sit well.

Notice I said "decided"... meaning I made a conscious choice.

I could have chosen better... and therein lies the rub.

Enter: Agency.

Agency is that thing you possess, that moment, that fraction of a second between acts.

That tiny space of thought where you #choose your next word carefully, or let the caged #rage monster release something nasty, or that self-righteous-moral-high-ground-holding-know-it-all leak a series of words guaranteed to wound.

In that tiny space, you are an agent for yourself. Your being-ness is being represented by your physical actions.

Having #awareness that space exists, and having choice and a power over your decisions in that place of #agency is where your #power lies.

It's always there.

You always have agency... it's just not always used fruitfully.

As was my case in my #movementmonday post.

I gave up my power over me because of circumstance... I showed weakness by not using my agency over myself.

It happens.

I'm not Jesus.

And neither are you... but the first step to a better body, mentality, or relationship is taking on the #responsibility of agency.

Of exercising your power over you in those ccrucial tiny moments.

Now that you know... you have no excuse.

"Ever since I was a child I have had this instinctive urge for expansion and growth. To me, the function and duty of a quality human being is the sincere and honest development of one's potential." - Bruce Lee.

You are here to contribute... Will you? Answer slowly and think about it.

Most of you will only pay lip service. Everyone one does at some point. Perfection is impossible.

Yet, over the long game, will you have more contributions than distributions in your lifetime?.
.
Contribution on the highest level comes from humans living their highest and best selves.

And that fucking requires... nay, mandates that you care for the container that houses your being.

So, to be a contributor... you have to move. Body, mind, and soul has to challenged with more bigger and better to incite growth.

Movement is life.

And, it goes deeper than the physical... it sparks all things within you, both tangible and non.

Our potential has its best chance of being realized when we do the hard things in life.

Growing soft and weak of body and mind is the very definition of death.

Join us in living your potential... in seeking fulfillment. Start by moving toward your best self. .

A good, hard, sweaty time was had by all... along with many frustrations and successes.

Now it's time to seek opportunity.

Where did you do well, where did you struggle... what can be done to get you where you want to go.

I'm going to be looking to up my strength and gymnastics going into this coming year.

After being sidelined a while back with a severe back injury, I just haven't felt like I could put in the volume that I had in the past, yet that is just a story.
It's time to get results based.

"No matter how good she looks... someone somewhere is tired of her shit." - Common Banter.

Relationships.

A time comes when you realize all relationships are a value proposition.

Your best friend, spouse, significant other, employer... pick one.

They exist in your life for a reason and each offer you a form of value.

Could be support, sex, laughs, stability, income, or any other desire.

And you provide value in return... as long as both parties are happy with the exchange of value, the relationship is considered good.

What happens though, when someone upsets the delicate relationship apple cart? Shit storms.

You've seen it.

People divorce, friends stop talking... they withdraw, fight and yell, or ultimately disconnect and move on.

Their needs, goals, and desires evolve and change. This is natural... and, it doesn't have to mean "the end" if your relationship can evolve right along with the changes.

Wifey has been stuck in a thought process that I personally think needs to change regarding her move here.

She's dealing with a great deal of emotion around "uprooting her life" even though we made this decision a year ago.

My patience went thin... and I barked at her for choosing to stay stuck, when she just needed to be heard and comforted in that moment.

What she said next, will never be forgotten.

It went like so, "I feel safe when you simply put your hand in the small of my back... we're apart right now. I need you to use words that cause me to feel your hand on my back"... and I wept.

I realized the value she needs from me wasn't there... better regroup. Be the man she needs.

Quite the wake up call. How about you? Where are you checked out and losing because you haven't ponied up the value you agreed to.

@mayamadeit_ is finally back teaching her Flow Water Element Yoga class tomorrow at 18:15.

We recommend her classes for Yogis and Yoginis who like going deep with their practice and learn about the philosophy, who don’t get offended by talk about “hidden” body parts, and who aren’t afraid to do the hard work (whether its spiritual, emotional, mental or physical). Tomorrow we’ll be counting our chaturangas as we flow into a state of personal empowerment.
When you’re ready to transform into the depths of your soul, come join us. (If you wanna stay shallow and skip around on the surface, and never really get anywhere new, that’s fine, no judgement, but probably better find another yoga teacher who plays that way)

Many beings... you are.
.
Earlier this week, I shared a video talking about the phrase, "That's just who I am" and what it really means.

You've heard people use it... Maybe you've used it yourself. I know I'm guilty.

But saying things like this amount to one singular thing.

Saying "that's just who I am" is really Just saying, "That's all I'll ever be". Wait a tick, what?.
.
Your "I am" statements determine your life.

And, if your I am statements are fixed and #pigeonhole you into one aspect of what you are capable of being, growth and #expansion are not in your cards.

Innately you know this is true, but it's a #convenient excuse to stay stuck.

The fact is you are never one type of person... and you #unconsciously show up different ways all the time.

Usually, because of your environment.

One minute you're business guy, then father, teacher or neighbor... you unconsciously move to what #serves you most in each instance.

A #classic is example is the persona you take on when you visit your parents... no matter how old you are.

My wife, for example, is expected to help cook and prepare meals or set the table when we visit her family.

Why? Because that's the way it's always been.

It's "just who she is" in that environment... she could chose any persona, but that's the one she likes and it doesn't require extra effort or change.

Harmless in that example... less so if you want to expand.

Different environments will #demand different versions of you.

If you want an expanded life or experience here, it begins and ends with how you #choose to show up.

As you change, your environment will as well.

Having an environment of big houses or multiple homes, great marriages, relationships, money, health and wellness, or fulfillment is the result of how you are #being now.

Saying "That's just who I am" is an excuse to keep being who you are because it's #scary as fuck to expand.

Give being #notyou a shot. You'll probably get "not you" results... maybe, for the better.

Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask yourself if you want to be a prisoner of your past or a pioneer of your future...

The lowly printed "T-Shirt" graces the cover of life for the first time ever back in 1940.

The first time the word was ever used in print was in 1920... read below.
.
“So early in September Amory, provided with “six suits summer underwear, six suits winter underwear, one sweater or T shirt, one jersey, one overcoat, winter, etc.,” set out for New England, the land of schools”. - This Side Of Paradise by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Before that... it had been made an undershirt used as part of the #Navy dress code.

Before that... it was becoming part of the #uniform for blue collar workers and other laborers in hot, difficult working conditions.

Before that... it was evolving from #longjohn underwear in the 1800s.

Everything has a history.

And connecting with the history of the T Shirt, as strange as it sounds, is what I've been doing for the last 4 days.

Why?.
.
It is such a monumental part of everyday life... and certainly the bread and butter of today's fashion in one form or another.

And, in seeking inspiration for the @hardwodder apparel line for the coming season, I realized I didn't know the #originstory of this item I wear daily.

I was starting to hate the creative process, and doubt my instincts... I was looking at the "lowly t-shirt" as some kind of throwaway. Something that just anyone could create.

Bullshit. A T-shirt is an #identity. It requires meaning.

After getting back some substandard renderings of design ideas, I had to go deeper and get into the blood and sinew of the creatives.

In that place, I found a new love and respect for the simplicity and beauty of this ubiquitous garment.

The depths yield meaning. Meaning fuels purpose... even for something as common as a T-shirt.

Here's to those who get deep,
J
