I find now that doing short sharp bursts & being productive little and often each day - Overtime - breeds RESULTS with less risk of total and complete burnout.
I used to go looooong and hard and then wondered why I was completely exhausted in the end.
Every top athlete trains at different speeds and tempos, there is literally no way on God's good earth that anyone can maintain a sprint indefinitely. It's just never going to happen. Let's be realistic.. let's get that straight.. & let's maybe stop trying to be some kinda superhero and use this good knowledge to live our best.. refreshed & on-form selves!!
-Chip Away- (Little & often)
Like a sculptor uncovering.. creating & ultimately
revealing a great work of art.
Over time, each day you will see results before the main piece.. the statute suddenly starts to take on it's own form. It's no longer this chunk of stone it is now starting to resemble a magnificent body of work. All from your own hands, like a single drop of water cutting through rock. Through persistence and stamina you will find things unfold over time.
It's all in your hands.. CHIP away. Yx
I'm living proof that you shouldn't let a lazy eye.. chubby arms or maybe not the most ideal model shape face stop you. I don't care anymore.. I'm trying to live my best life and at least create some photos I can look back at (if I reach the old and grey stage) You know.. I can just say.. girl you did it anyway!!! Good..... for..... you......!
Don't let your fears of being "perfect" or "not the most beautiful" stop you. Girl or Boy.. Women or Man.. just shine your damn light and do you.
The people who are meant to be in your life will be, no matter what! so loose that notion of conforming to whatever standards that keep you trapped and fearful. The biggest step I took in developing my confidence is just by doing it. By doing this I not only grow as a person but new clients of mine can maybe see me before we meet! so it actually serves as an introduction.
I took this picture after a 24hr sleep in shift at my full time employment at mencap. I was tired but happy! Disheveled maybe.. but this is the real me. Take it or leave it, like it or lump it. I don't care. I only care about my friends, new, old and ones yet to meet. Those people who look beyond the surface and celebrate with you. Carpe diem baby! All we have is now. Do you. 👍😘
