Master Your Craft and You Will Always Beat the Jack of all Trades.
This may be harsh to hear but if you’re trying to lose weight/gain strength/get abs/learn weightlifting all at the same time, you will fail miserably. It is virtually impossible to see success doing a thousand things at once, and people always complain “I’m not getting to where I want to be” and don’t see any success and then quit. There is the aspect of “training hard” but it’s more important to “train smart”.
Rather than wasting energy doing twenty things at once and whining when you’re not getting anywhere, pick one goal and expend all your energy in that one goal. Want to lose weight? That’s your only focus. Want to gain strength? Game plan on how to progressively overload every week. Want to do a bodybuilding show? Diet hard, diet smart, and accept you will temporarily lose some strength gains and not lift heavy for a bit period of time.
The new year is coming in hot. Don’t work towards a bunch of goals all at the same time, it will not be fun you can trust me on that. Focus on one thing at a time, everything will always work out in the long term.
Send this to anybody YOU think needs to hear this.
• you can’t take it with you.
I know it may feel like you want to, maybe even need to, but you’ll soon feel lighter. you’ll soon realize that what you’ve been filling up your mind and heart space with is your own attachment to things that are no longer there. to things that do not serve you anymore.
attachment is expansive; it leaves little room for anything else. but once the attachment is gone, once you’ve disassociated yourself from it, replaced it with healthier *connections, learned to share rather than attach yourself, well then you’re free to do just about anything.
free yourself, @gloriyanedler
Ever wondered what the term COVERT narcissist means? THIS, exactly. This was my life for 9 years before I woke up to what was happening. Then there was no looking back. Freedom is on the horizon and I couldn't be more excited to have no money and a crappy apartment. Because I'll be free 🎶🐦🎶
Scientific thought and the miraculous unconscious are two waves in the same ocean - Alejandro Jodorowsky
For some time, I have been using #tarot as a method of self-reflection: it's in part the use of powerful archetypical imagery to tap into the unconscious mind and prompt ideas and strategies, and in part a tool of spiritual grounding (having grown up Catholic, I still harbor a healthy respect and curiosity for the unknowable, and have developed my own strategies for dealing with the Mysterious).
Many people also use the tarot as a purely psychological tool of self-prompting- I know writers who use it for help making creative story choices, for example.
It occurred to me a few weeks ago that my final few weeks of 2019 were going to be, well, a bit hectic, and that I mentally needed to make my training almost purely about creativity and fun. I wanted to take a few weeks to program for myself, and I wanted to use tarot as one tool of self-regulation. I've never specifically applied it to training but it suddenly seemed like an obvious choice.
I have been taking time every training day to clear my mind, ask myself how I'm doing, what I need, and how far I can drive intensity (or some derivative of those questions). I let my tarot draw bring up whatever emotions & ideas it will bring up, make a note of them, and go into my workout.
I've been doing this about 3 weeks so far and it has been really valuable: I have left every workout feeling like I got exactly what I needed that day. This is HIGHLY subjective - what I interpret doesn't change much the actual workout I had programmed - maybe a little heavier top set or extra set of accessories.
The biggest take away so far has been that it is really valuable to consciously make a time each day to clear out, calm down, and ask myself what I want and need and how to get that. No shit, huh? Funny how easily we forget.
I would be very curious to hear if anyone else has used (or will use) tarot for their training - please holler at me if you do, I'm all ears. .

As part of my healing journey, I had to let go of a long term friendship that was toxic. She was controlling, manipulative and passive aggressive towards me. I knew she was dealing with her own demons so I tried to be a constant cheerleader for her. But it ended up draining my own energy and making me feel bad about myself with all her backhanded comments. Earlier in the year, I made the decision that it was time to distance myself from this “friendship” because no one is truly stuck in a controlling relationship of any type. Deep down inside you have the strength to change your environment to better your life. My quality of life has improved drastically since I made that decision!! Surrounding myself with people who truly lift you up and have pure good intentions for you is key in any healing journey!! My healing journey is about my hoarding and I have grown so much this year!! #supersoulsunday#supersoul#healing#healingjourney#strongwomen#strongwoman#wonderwoman#strength#strengthquotes#control#hoarders#hoarding#hope#faith#free#freedom

Feeling scattered this season? Read this and watch my stories for reader suggestions (you may be tagged)! “Barren. What a word. Hard and harsh. Empty and longing for more. Elizabeth was barren and had believed God for decades...she had long since given up hope for the answer to her prayers.
Jesus comes into an extremely barren situation. The world was longing for more and it still is....many had given up hope of ever seeing the answer to their prayers.
Sit in the barren place that Jesus came into. Give God any barren place in you. Because of Jesus, we have hope.” ~Betsy Pendergrass
