“Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” My mother always told me this growing up. I have lived by it fiercely. So much so, I have it tattooed on my body. I believe in solutions. I believe that it’s less about who is at fault and more about being accountable and taking action. I firmly believe in sacrifice. It’s easy to want something badly, it’s harder to think of what you will give up to obtain it. What risks are you willing to take if it means you won’t feel “good” or comfortable 100% of the time? How will you lean into the resistance and not shy away from it? I have a side of me that is incredibly persistent- especially with my pursuits. You find your way if you are willing. Don’t be fooled, it may seem to others like your bowing down, but really you’re taking charge of your own life, and that has always been my strongest will. ⚡️⚡️⚡️ @yourdaywon 📸 @fumiehoppe

“When it's over, I want to say all my life I was a bride married to amazement. • I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms. When it's over, I don't want to wonder if I have made of my life something particular, and real. • I don't want to find myself sighing and frightened, or full of argument. don't want to end up simply having visited this world.” • Rest In Peace and Bliss to the woman, artist, poet, mindful creator, who taught me how to pay attention to life’s details and the world around me. To a woman who inspired me to write the words that often get overlooked along with the feelings that inspire them. Mary Oliver, you have colored my world and so many others. You made me feel I have met God through your words. You didn’t simply visit, you made your mark and it’s kept in the hearts of many. Thank you. Thank you. ✨🖤

Do you ever think about your ghost ships? The things that could’ve been had you made different decisions? • I’m not necessarily living in the past when I ask myself this, but more so to affirm that where I am right now conspires in my favor more than I give it credit. • I had always known I wanted to work in higher academia. Specifically, I knew that I wanted to be back at the University of Miami. It’s surreal to see how full-circle It all is. Speaking with a friend of “how I got here” was a long, quite arduous, and rather interesting journey. Simply put, I have done a lot of things out of the intentions that I set out at the given time. From playing the violin, running competitively, working with the RadioCity Rockettes, conducting obesity research, to working at premier studios, and now advising Kinesiology and Sport Sciences students, I can say the culmination of my experiences led to a much greater whole. • I think of three things that have guided me: aptitude, attitude, and all-worldly. Triple A sort-to-speak. APTITUDE: how smart or how knowledgeable are you, really? How much of what you know have you mastered in application, but also in the ability to continually educate yourself and others. ATTITUDE: I don’t care whether you’re a shark or any other animal or thing that is threatening. Are you kind? Compassionate? Empathetic? Can you find the silver lining when it all may seem too dark? Can you find the will in you to figure out the solutions? Better yet, can you inspire others to collectively do the same. ALL-WORLDY: All my experiences have taught me that there is SO much more to life than where you are right now. Can you meet differences with understanding? Are you mindful of your experiences or lack thereof, in relation to diverse environments and community. Are you aware of the verbiage and actions you take to create a more cohesive environment? Lastly, are you willing to learn from those whose perspectives, upbringing, social-economic status, and education differ from your own? Can you walk in shoes other than your own, try them on for size, and tread areas in your world you may have never known? • CONT. 👇🏻

Sometimes, your softness is threatening when they expect you to be calloused. Your rawness will fill them up with boiling rage in how you uphold convictions in all that you are...with no filter, you stand in your truth making it appear that honesty is the most beautiful thing you own...and wear. You aren’t hiding out, holding in, or keeping quiet. You are rattling the cages they have wanted to contain you in. You aren’t going to sit still and pretty if there’s a fire with in you. The one you constantly rise from.

“I think we mistake anger for the antithesis of love, when in fact is a necessary part of love and what it means to be human in an inhumane world. I think it takes great love to be able to be angry with each other. And to be clear, I am talking about accountable anger, not abusive or malicious anger, but anger that is grounded and comes from a deep love for each other and ourselves. This kind of anger is a risk we take to be vulnerable with each other, to show who we really are and what truly matters to us. All of this, to me is love; and love is one of the greatest risks we can take.” - @mia.mingus 📸 @jeannnes

Alyssa Thornberry 🐆 But in all seriousness, light is such a powerful thing. Both the presence and absence of it, elicit such profound emotions. It’s revealing in that it can highlight what we see and conceal what we choose to hide. I have found that, that is what makes it therapeutic for me. Shadows are created by light, merely bending, taking form.

Sometimes, really all you are to people is a body. A sack of flesh with some "perks." Not a face, not even a person. It's just like, "woah look at those legs" “THAT body...” "I don't have a butt like that" "Your stomach is flat." But honestly, when did we begin to lose sight of the bigger picture? When did we become so out of touch with being human that the only way we feel connected is through a "like" button or comments? When did visuals become more important than actual experiences? How can I empower you to love YOUR body because it isn't mine? It is yours. And you are beautiful. I am nothing to be compared to. I am scarred. I am imperfect. I am beautiful. Let us just be. - - - - #scars #perfectnever #bemorehuman #chasethelight #gritandgrace #beyou #betrue

It’s surreal to think that my life looks nothing like it did, this time last year. Take the time to notice how far you’ve come. Be grateful that you are slowly, but surely, coming into all you had intended to be. It’s never an overnight thing, sweets.

There has never been a space where I’ve simultaneously got my ass kicked while smiling, laughing, or dancing, like @bodyspacenyc with @kelvingary and his phenomenal team. I was privileged to be both a coach and client, once, where I’ve learned so much professionally and interpersonally. I was lucky to link up with a coach who not only believed in what I had intended and set out but in my abilities. #poundforpoundnothing but immense love! 💪🏻♥️ Incredibly jealous of all the #fitprosand peeps who get to train at the best facility in NYC. Immensely missing Tuesday’s with @kelvingary. (Hope you enjoy some of our highlights AND Tom foolery 😂) #flashbackfriday

Until you give up the idea that happiness is somewhere else, it will never be where you are. This is similar to when you think of someone else’s, anything, are #goals It’s easy to be motivated by external factors but harder to stay inspired, internally. You start chasing what will never be yours. You start walking through someone else’s path. Root yourself in your beliefs. Live them out. Challenge them. Learn from them. Instead of chasing the next best thing, make right now the best it can be. Every tomorrow is the biggest blessing.

If this moment only comes, once...I’m going enjoy it to the fullest. • Sometimes the most difficult thing to do is celebrate yourself, your life, and all the small graces that remind you how far you’ve come. When thinking and setting goals, it’s easy to lose sight of the here and now. • One of my biggest mentors told me “...don’t forget to stop and smell the roses.” Which for me meant, I have to remind myself that right now is more than enough and all that there is. Right here, matters just as much as where I want to be. • I used to propel myself in futures I hadn’t quite earned. I lived presently but always acted on “what’s next?” When I began to give my hardest to the present moment I realized all the things I am so grateful for. The abundance that is life. • I live in a beautiful city where the weather is the most cooperative. I live within my means, for myself, in a charming neighborhood, close to all that I need and want to explore. • I work part-time at my local independent bookstore @booksandbooks selling children’s books where I couldn’t be more grateful that a hobby of mine, can give me a mean and is for a great cause. (There’s nothing like seeing children read, especially in this technologically driven era.) • I am a drive away from my family, my closest friends, the house I grew up in. I have the most solid support system of people who believe in me beyond my own doubt and who actually want to see me strive and thrive. • I feel I have come full circle in many ways, but still expanding. I am incredibly excited to work as a Senior Academic Advisor for the School of Education and Human Development at the @univmiami where I myself learned how to be the health professional/ educator, I am today. I am so beyond blessed to have these little things I often didn’t pay much attention to. I am so excited to learn, struggle, fail, and triumph. • This is the end and start of an era. One of continuously becoming. Here’s to you finding your graces, wherever they are, whatever they may be.

Trauma, is never pretty. Healing, is the furthest thing from perfect. Life is never linear. • As I close out another gracious 365 days, I impose on myself some self-reflecting. 2018 reinforced themes in my life: Fragility. Vulnerability. Fear. Resilience. Most of which, existed in tandem. Most of which, probably wouldn’t have the weight of circumstance, without the other. • When @womenshealthmagasked me if I would like to be apart of a feature showcasing other women who find strength in their scars, I was simultaneously elated and anxious. You see, while you will never actively find me concealing my scar, it felt quite different to have it be a focal point. My scar, my trauma, my healing, would be placed under lights, focused in through lens, seen in a way that was unfiltered and raw. A physical testament and depiction of what it meant to me, then...what it means to me now. • My scar empowers me because it reminds me that all lives are incredibly and irrevocably, fragile, BUT resilient. You see, fragile does not mean the absence of strength. There is no substitute for experience; and in mine, life has shown me the myriad of ways it will kick my ass, chew me up, and spit me back up again, and yet, still I rise, stronger than I did before. • Fear has been a HUGE source of inspiration for me. Because bravery is not lacking fear- it’s showing up despite it. And maybe fear IS a liar, but in many ways it has always helped me find truth. For me, it always has been a catalyst and reminder to just do. To create. To speak out. To believe. To attempt. To fail. To go beyond. • Vulnerability can wrap all things things into one. Because to feel anything to any degree is opening ones self up to be seen, heard, and felt. My scar is inherently the biggest vulnerability I physically wear. It’s shows others the way I committed to show up for myself despite not knowing. It shows others a side of myself I’m still coming and growing into. It shows people that there’s more to life than simply how you look, but how you carry your story- your triumphs, your burdens, the truth of you. • I, like all the other beautiful and inspiring women featured @robynlawley @paige_previvor cont. 👇
