Happy rainy monday morning everyone, I hope you all got a chance to enjoy the sun while it was here on there weekend. The above photo is a new tree growing on top of a dead one.
Today's thought of the day involves the change of seasons and how our personal growth can be reflective of that. .
Thought of the day: Personal Growth Seasons
Much like at the gym, our ability to grow is directly related to the our capacity to rest. So how does this relate to the earth and its ability to shift through seasons? Well if we just look at the physical changes our seasons take on and what they possibly represent. The fall is the slow decline from an optimal plateau of growth, were spring is a rapid incline of growth that brings about many changes. I believe our bodies can act in micro cycles closely related to these same patterns. If we are constantly pushing growth, the ability to learn is snuffed out and adversely if we are only forever resting, the opportunities for growth slowly deteriorate. This theory is not inclusive to myself, Elliot Hulse, a renowned blogger and modern philosopher discussed this very same idea, however was much more elegant in his delivery. I guess with being in school for 3 years straight I have developed the ability to ignore the status quo and take a “season” of rest to regenerate. With the economic dominance that lingers over our every move, the room for rest is highly frowned upon. However, without the rest, all that work is reduced significantly. Listen to your mind and body, acknowledge the seasons not just in the outside world, but the metaphysical world that will forever live inside you.
All the love.

"Quem mentiu, quem me enganou, quem tentou me destruir, quem usou máscaras, quem me magoou, quem me usou… foi quem me fez ser quem realmente sou. As minhas cicatrizes são hoje, flores na minha alma e fazem de mim uma pessoa melhor. Eu aprendo com meus (des)enganos.
E agradeço!" Dulce Miller* #boatardee #🌞

Check Your Fine Print.
You know those ads on the radio or tv when they tell you all of this good stuff that entices you to buy what they're selling. Right before the ad ends, they have this guy talking so fast that you can't understand what he's saying.
Basically he is saying "the fine print." The fine print holds specific conditions in which what he just told you doesn't apply to you or isn't exactly as good as he just said it was due to the conditions spoken a million words a minute.
We have fine print in our lives. We want to be as glossy as a cell phone plan ad, but we have fine print that goes along with what we give to the world. The conditions need to be right for someone to get the "us" that we've advertised.
Let's discover our fine print and start working to cross lines of it out one by one.
With being right.
Forceful, excessive, wasted energy,
With sitting upright twisted in sheets... crying all night.
With being so Angry,
Focused on all that was wrong, missed the feeling of everything RIGHT.
With having the last word,
Ego continuing to take the lead.
Others actions, emotions and thoughts
Negatively shaping me!
A Temple filled with false entitlement, wanting shit that's not for ME
Not for me to want.
Not for me to need.
An obsession with a world stopping me from finding ME
Obsession with fitting in, being liked... Sounding strong when eye was really filled with fright.
These obsessions no longer weigh in me.... Catch me grateful to breathe... floating easier over waves of happiness in future seas.

Ahora que estoy despierto y siguiendo la secuencia del banco de plaza , es lunes y feriado , y si ya se que son supervagos y que tienen millones de problemas y excusas para alimentarse un poco mejor como así también menos entusiasmo por mover un par de kilos más cada mes , porque tampoco es que se vayan a desgarrar de tanto entrenar , pero en lo posible buscar hacer alguna actividad al aire libre o unos ejercicios caseros ( ambos serían lo ideal ) para seguir manteniendo el enfoque diario, mientras me tomo esta agua que es riquísima mmmm seeee.
P/D : no soy de esos mentores entrenadores que va andar a los besitos ni cariñitos detrás de cada cliente , más bien soy 💯% directo , crudo y realista , pero siempre y más que nadie voy a querer que den su mejor esfuerzo.
