Striking out is okay! At the end of the day, this challenge is about you. Each and every time you are brave, your barriers start getting chipped away. It happens bit by bit.
You learn how to be in your skin. You get to know what it feels like to be seemingly rejected and then still be okay. It starts to lose its power because as you continue to keep getting your 5 you realize there are SO MANY MEN OUT THERE. This is just ONE guy out of many #ontothenext
You have the chance to tell yourself a new story because you are making choices. Pat yourself on the back when you strike out. It means you're one step closer and you've been brave! OH SO BRAVE!
WE WOULD LOVE FOR YOU TO FOLLOW US! Join the #kdhsquad
So encouraged by your faith and grind. Never met anyone who works as hard as you do. Always going the extra mile to get better. You are THAT guy. Always very proud of you #Repost@username_jdg
Just two years ago I was working at an office job that I did enjoy but was lacking the passion I once had for the game of basketball. I stopped playing because I had lost faith in the process. I decided to come back to it because my faith was built up by replanting myself in the Word of God and by the encouragement of my wife @myrragreen , my family, a select number of friends who spoke life into my heart and my home church @embassyirving •
The Bible makes it clear in Habakkak 2:2 “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it.” I’m constantly reminded to do write down goals/visions and to live by faith. Living by faith is not a call to sit back and watch God work, it’s to live according to His Word, putting your best effort to please Him in whatever you put your hands to. •
Last year when I made the Austin Spurs G-League team from an open tryout, I wrote down goals in my journal. Two of them were to win a championship and to make the Summer League roster. I accomplished both of those.•
Want to thank the @spurs organization for allowing me to participate in this years NBA Summer League. #ontothenext
1st tri of the season. Today’s finish line was different in the best way. Not every race brings fulfillment of your accomplishment, however there is something to be said about a good support system. Finishing 6th & feeling slower than usual, I immediately thought I can do better, & what I will change next race, that I almost forgot about my accomplishment. •
As you can see in these photos- a smile from ear to ear- brought to you by the best cheering section I could ask for.
Sometimes we can be so hard on ourselves we forget to appreciate the moment at hand.
Thanks for being there crew!
Congratulations to everyone finished strong today !
On to the next! ♀️♀️♀️ •
A stranger took this picture last summer. In fact, he insisted. As far as I'm aware it's the only evidence of me and the truck existing in the same spot at the same time on the salt at Speed Week.
I didn't post it before because, well, I hate posting pictures of myself. I felt chubby and out of shape when dude took this pic and only did it because he wouldn't let it go. My knees hurt, my contacts were gummed up, and I had just 'eaten' a frozen sandwich from my cooler of dry ice. The damn thing worked too well. Somehow I was bloated and dehydrated at the same time. Uncomfortable would be the best way I could ever describe how I felt at this moment.
That's something I've always struggled with...in middle and high school I used to hunch my shoulders terribly and even to this day I almost never feel photogenic enough to take pictures of myself. My smile feels awkward, my cheeks are too chipmunkish, my head is gigantic. Despite all that, and in hindsight, I'm glad he guilted me into it. I just wish I knew his name so I could credit him finally.
I know this isn't the typical narcissism one generally sees on IG. But I feel beyond that tonight.
This BRONZE feels like Gold!!
I fought for this and will never stop striving to be the best version of myself & hoping I encourage my #QueenTeam and everyone to keep hurdling ALL life’s obstacles... like a QUEEN ;)
Check out this match video! Didn’t realize how much I missed @our.wild.rumpus and #tinybro till they came home for a visit! Mason’s wrestling skills have vastly improved! He’s 4 years old now and we’ve been wrestling since before he was 2. This is about 50 seconds out of what was like a 45 minute session. The kid has no quit, no off button. Just pushes the pace the whole time. He’s wired for this. Under Mom’s watchful eye and with permission of course, I taught him how to choke his opponent from the back :) my favorite thing he said when we first started going at it—I started to tickle him and he stopped, looked at me stone faced and said “tickle is not battle.” How right you are, Mason. How right you are
100 sayfa okuduktan sonra dayanamayıp bırakıyorum. Hem klasiklere hakim olmak için aldığım kitaplardan biriydi, hem de Sabit Fikir’in eski sayılarından birinde kitaba ve yazarı Mary Shelley’ye eğildikleri için. Yazarın kadın olduğunu o zamana kadar bilmiyordum. Ekstra ilgimi çekmişti. Keşke kitap da o kadar ilgi çekici olsaydı♀️
Filmini hiç izlemedim. En azından hatırlamıyorum. Frankenstein’a dair tüm bildiğim bir canavarın yoktan var edildiği ve ameliyatımdan kalma dikiş izlerinden dolayı kendimi o canavara benzetişim. Bir de Young Frankenstein var, absürd komedi bir film, çok severim, ama onun burayla alakası yok.
Kitabı bilim kurgu zannediyordum. Uzun uzun canavarın yaratım sürecini okuyacağım sanıyordum. Öyle değilmiş. O kısmı öyle hızlı geçiyor ki durup düşündüm, okudum mu okumadım mı diye.
Dram ağırlıklı diyebiliriz. Okuduğum kadarlık kısım için vicdan muhasebesi açısından Suç ve Ceza’yı aklıma getirdi diyebilirim. Ama sadece o noktada benzeşiyorlar. Suç ve Ceza benim için kutsal.
Çok sıkılınca bırakmaya karar verdim. Bunu öğrenmeye çalışıyorum. Mutlaka böyle başkaları da vardır. Yarım kalan kitap obsesyonu Bırakmaya karar verince de bari özetine bakayım dedim. Meğer herkes sıkılıyormuş. Özeti bile mi sıkıcı olur arkadaş!
Çok yerin dibine soktum sorry. Ama durum bu Kitap seçerken çok ince eleyip sık dokuyorum, yayınevi, çeviri kalitesi, kitabın klasik oluşu, edebi kalite önemli kriterler ama bence okunabilirlik de çok önemli bir kriter.
O zaman #ontothenext ♀️
