I don’t look at quick-tempered and testy people as “strong.” I know how easy it is to pop off.

I don’t look at cold, hardened demeanors as strong. I know how easy it is to distance yourself from people when they hurt you.

Jesus was strong. When He was mocked, He didn’t become defensive. When He was being schemed against, He stood His ground and kept it moving. When He was crucified, He asked that God would forgive His murderers.

THAT’S strong.

When you resist the urge to let the sun go down on your anger, you’re literally slaying demons. When you love your enemy, you’re waging war on Hell. When you reconcile with a family member that offended you, you’re breaking generational curses.

😎💊🛀🏼Day 1️⃣8️⃣ of #YogaChillPill with @cyogalife ↪️ #KomodoDragonPose variations 🛀🏼💊😎 Swipe right to see the progression. This is a challenging yet playful set of poses that we’re going to treat like an elevator ride; when we hit your floor and it’s time for you to get off, that’s where you’ll be ... for now. There’s a ton going on here including strength, mobility, and balance so hope you all enjoy. 
Begin in a #LizardLunge with the left foot forward and back knee down. Make sure that the left knee is directly over the ankle and the right hip is over the right knee (lots of 90 degree angles here!). Come down to the forearms if possible. Now, pivot on the right knee and swing the foot out to the left so that the right shin is parallel to the front of the mat. Bring the right heel toward the right glute and reach the left hand under the left thigh for a bind; this is Stop #1.

If you’re comfortable here, start to shift weight into the right forearm so that the left foot becomes ‘light.’ Engage the abductors to lift the left leg up and out to the side. Keep the knee bent (as shown in the photo) or extend the leg directly out to the side. This is Stop #2.

To take this all the way, begin to extend the leg behind you and press out through the heel. The hip can be open like #HalfMoonPose or more squared to the mat like 3-leg downdog. This part is tricky for the balance so play around and have some fun falling!

I’ll be posting tomorrow and the next day and then @jinny.suh.00 will provide modifications for the next set of 4. 📷:@darling_nicki

I NEVER BELONGED 💔⁠
⁠
...until now.⁠
⁠
Since I was a little girl back in Sweden, I never felt like I fit in. I was too loud, too much for a lot of people, and I was very insecure so I would try to make up for that by acting like a clown or hang out with bad people and do stupid things. I remember being pushed into lockers, laughed at, and talked about - and IT HURT! Still to this day I have a hard time thinking about it. A lot of it came from my parents and the whole story there, I was SO ashamed and felt so unworthy.⁠
⁠
9 years ago I left Sweden because I didn't feel at home there. I never had. Sweden is great but if you don't fit the mold, its hard to feel like you belong. I had a lot of "friends" but most of them would talk behind my back. I had some true friends but they were very few. ⁠
⁠
I've carried this stuff with me my whole life and even now as an adult I have this need to belong (don't we all?). When I met my husband, things really started to change. He loved me so hard that I started loving myself too 💖 And I've learned to be selective with my friends and I only surround myself with TRUE friends, and I don't waste even a second with people I don't feel connected to or on shallow relationships.⁠
⁠
I remember when I started a new school and I was 16 years old and I sat by myself in the classroom, everyone else was paired up. I was so nervous and felt like everyone was looking at me. The teacher introduced me, and immediately this one girl raised her hand and said "she can sit with us!" @janniketilly, I will love you forever for that - you made me feel like I belonged ❤️⁠
⁠
Do you feel like you belong? Whatever your situation, you can sit with us 💝⁠

Moment of truth...⁣
⁣
Have you ever had someone try to tell you how to do your job who has no experience whatsoever in your field? That’s some ignorant 💩 right there. Yea, I was kind of like that guy, but with veganism. ⁣😐
⁣
I used to think vegan men were soft and weak. I thought that “real men” ate meat. After all, we are the top of the food chain 🙄. I used to think vegans couldn’t be physically strong, fast, or athletic in a way I saw appealing. I had many ideas of veganism that simply weren’t true mainly because I was ignorant about the topic. I didn’t even personally know any vegans during that time so how could I make such a deep judgement on such a large group of people? The audacity I had was real and there are many others that think like I once did. ⁣🤦🏻‍♂️
⁣
If you’re wanting to try veganism, but you’re afraid you’ll degrade to a soft, weak, unhealthy animal lover, let me be the first to assure you that’s not what happens. Outside of all the physical benefits that come with eating a calorie appropriate plant based diet (my fat content went down while muscle content went up, stamina increased, skin looks younger, my joints are pain free, and so many other athletes have experienced this plus some), you’ll also learn to stand for something that’s bigger than your muscles. Whether your motivation is the animals, the planet, or your health, you’ll be representing something that saves lives and helps to preserve our planet. 🐮🌎💪🏼
⁣
So don’t be like the ignorant person I once was. As embarrassing as that is, I think it’s important you all know who I used to be. If I can make the switch then I think just about anyone can. 👍🏼⁣
⁣
You want to be truly strong? Physically and mentally? Then I challenge you to try veganism for 2 months.  Not 2 days. Not 2 weeks...2 months. Let’s see how strong you really are. Because fighting for something that can’t fight for itself is real strength. 🌱💪🏼

😎💊🛀🏼Day 1️⃣0️⃣ of #YogaChillPill with @cyogalife ↪️ #LizardLunge variation 🛀🏼💊😎 Looking at today’s main pose, it’s amazing to note the difference in difficulty that 90 degrees in one knee can make. Of course the difference between bending the front knee also affects what’s going on with the back leg. With the back knee off the ground, there is some room to cheat compared to the full split variation where the floor is less forgiving. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We’ll begin in a #Lunge stance with the left leg in front and right knee down making sure that the spine is long. In order to create some extra space in the hip, one of the things I like to do before settling into this pose is reach out toward the top right corner of the mat keeping the belly pulled in and chest up. Once I find my max length,  I will ‘swing’ my upper body toward the left (while pulling the left hip back) and land with my left shoulder making contact with the left leg as the right knee comes down. Once you’re here, you can really begin to work into the left hip always thinking about creating more length… so rather than trying to quickly get your shoulder under your leg, focus more on coming forward. This will help us create the space needed to pass the left shoulder under the leg, which will put us in the best position to go for the bind. Once you’ve got the shoulder as tucked in as possible, reach your left arm under the thigh and internally rotate and then bend the elbow to bring the hand toward the low back. Reach the right arm back to find the left hand (use a strap or towel is necessary) and continue sinking the chest forward. If you feel stable, lift the back knee and squeeze everything toward the midline. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

All the time! I’m sure we’ve all been there, encouraging someone while your going through your own stuff. That is definitely a show of true strength. It’s funny because in those moments of motivating someone else your actually healing yourself.

Sometimes nature can be the best playground. .
.
We visited Kleb Woods Nature Center today for the first time and it didn’t disappoint. The boys were tasked with finding things to build their own “leaf man” like the book we read earlier this week so they had fun hunting for different things they thought they could had for heads, bodies, eyes, etc. .
.
What a gift each day is. Thankful for the time to explore and help cultivate a sense of wonder in these little men. .
.
Walking down the trail, C asked me quite a few times- are you sure this is the right way? We’d come to a sign and he would be so relieved and when we made it back, he shouted hooray!! It was an opportunity to teach- to say sometimes in this life we don’t know which way to go, right or left- and how can we know? What is our “sign”, I asked them. .
.
The Word of God is a gift to show us how to live, to teach us about the God who made all of this and us. Jesus is our sign- our “way” back home (John 14:6). .
.
As we walked around the bend we sometimes couldn’t see the rest of the trail until we were upon it. Sometimes walking with Christ is like that- a walk by faith and not by sight (2 Cor 5:7)- starting on a journey before you’re quite sure where the road leads, taking one step after another, trusting the Good Shepherd to give guidance each step of the journey. .
.
If that’s you today, take a step of faith and see where He leads. Wait and see as He illumines the path before you.

True strength does not look like bigness and a proclamation of fearlessness.

It does not talk a big game and spill stories of its bravado and abilities.

It does not claim to know all or see all.

This is not true strength.

This is fear with its shields up.

True strength is that quiet kind of strength.

That kind of strength that shakes the earth with its silent power.

The strength you see on the face of a woman who has been told to shut up for the hundredth time this week.

The strength that resides within the deep resolve of the broken-hearted to never let another man cross that boundary again.

This strength is not vast in numbers our loud in its battle cry.

It is a solo kind of strength.

One that is found when we connect to that powerful place within us.

And trust that we can rely on it implicitly.

We find it when we have reached the end of our ropes.

When we have exhausted ourselves in the search of external sources of strength.

When we finally land, with a resounding thump, in the seat of our soul.

Now we are tapped into a strength unmatched.

A power so unimaginable. So true.

That just the recognition of it leaves us feeling backed by the strength of a thousand suns.

This is true strength.

My hero.  I was sitting at the beach, contemplating going into the water & thinking “ah, but it’s so cold!” & in walks this guy... He doesn’t have fully formed forearms or hands... and yet he steadily waded out into the water, despite the cold, & jumped under waves like a pro!  Talk about a #humbling experience! I’m #grateful to this man for showing me what #truestrength looks like, & #encouraging me along my #journey. #youdoyou #courage #justkeepswimming

Erza: My apologies, Saber, but I’m afraid we’ll have to postpone our fight for now. A violent monster has appeared and it must be slain before any innocent bystander get harmed. If you don’t mind, I’d appreciate the assistance.
Saber: Don’t mind if I do, I’d be more than happy to help. Once we’ve finish off this beast, we can resume our battle.

It was confirmed that the late Carrie Fisher will appear in Star Wars Episode IX thanks to some unused material from The Force Awakens. However, it's also emerged that filmmakers will be incorporating footage of the iconic actress from The Last Jedi too. Speaking on the Resistance Broadcast podcast, ABC's Clayton Sandell discussed how JJ Abrams' trilogy concluder will integrate Leia Organa. Sandell explained he had spoken to Carrie's brother Todd, who announced that the clips will "not only [come] from The Force Awakens, but apparently they are also using unused footage from The Last Jedi". However, when asked him how many minutes of Leia they have to use, Todd replied: "I can't tell you that." Sandell went on: "He's very excited, the whole family is really excited about this and wanted it to happen. There are big surprises coming with this movie, with this performance and with this unused footage. This one's really for the fans." In a statement, Abrams announced the use of archive footage by saying: “We desperately loved Carrie Fisher. Finding a truly satisfying conclusion to the Skywalker saga without her eluded us. We were never going to recast, or use a CG character. With the support and blessing from her daughter, Billie, we have found a way to honour Carrie’s legacy and role as Leia in Episode IX by using unseen footage we shot together in Episode VII.” Episode IX is set to release in December 2019. #starwarscelebration #starwarsepisodevii #starwarsfan #starwarsnerd #starwarsgeek #carriefisher #starwarsepisode7 #truestrength #princessleia #starswarstheforceawakens #starwarstheempirestrikesback #theempirestrikesback #starwarsfanatic #dorkside #starwarsfacts #starwarsepisodevi #starwarsepisode6 #georgelucas #georgelucasfilms #countdowntostarwars #ripcarrie #ripprincessleia #hansoloandleia #leiaskywalker #ripcarriefisher👰 #slaveleia

My daily strength comes from gratitude. When I feel weakest, I try to focus on what I can be grateful for to get me through. There is nothing I’m more grateful for than my family. I don’t know what I did to deserve being born into a family that has taught me so much about hard work, grit, love, loyalty, and perseverance. Thank you to all my family for giving me the strength to face what comes at me. It’s because of you. I miss you already. #ilovemyfamily #truestrength #obsessedwithmyparents

“I fall into the category of guys who grew up being praised for being quiet and well-mannered. as a boy that set me apart from the rambunctious kids around me. adults called it mature, but really i was just shy - nervous about being too expressive. being quiet won me encouragement and with it a sense of entitlement. my version of boyhood was better in my mind, more advanced. in adulthood this translated as aloof and cold and probably alienated some folks. it’s been a point of contention romantically. but the distance and the quiet allowed me to see that while i was masking my insecurities with decorum, the boys i didn’t mesh with were just acting out to distract from their own insecurities. and that’s so valid. As an adult man, i’ve made an effort to be more vulnerable and to make space for others to be comfortable to vulnerable as well. we all have different tactics to hide those vulnerabilities, but it’s only in eschewing those that we can connect, right?”

An effort to be more vulnerable encourages to do the same. To lead by example. To make room and include. All the wonderful traits that Patrick has thought so diligently about, and is now of course leading by example.
A wonderful and positive masculine role model. Very grateful to him for sharing this thoughts.

In the Buffyverse, Wolfram & Hart is an evil powerful international and interdimensional law firm which serves as the main antagonists for the Angel series. A friend of mine whose also a fellow Buffyverse fan once asked me how do I think Buffy the Vampire Slayer would have handled Wolfram and Hart? And I told her I’m honestly not sure how a slayer like Buffy would have handled those bastards. Granted she is stronger than Angel but Im not sure she would be able to defeat them. Because the only real reason they haven’t killed Angel is cus they don’t want to and have plans to use him in a future apocalypse. If they really wanted Angel dead, I feel like they would have done it. They got all the power and resources to make it happen. But they wanna bring him to the dark side instead. However I don’t think they’d be as lenient on Buffy and pull any punches. They’d consider her an absolute threat that needs to be taken care of immediately if she had chosen to stay in LA and still choose to be a slayer. #BuffyTheVampireSlayer #vampirewithasoul #SarahMichelleGellar #buffy #buffysummers #buffytheslayer #CharismaCarpenter #buffyverse #truestrength #angelus #angeltheseries #angelthevampire #DavidBoreanaz #cordeliachase #josswhedon #spikethevampire #buffyfan #buffyfans #buffyforever #buffyfansfollow #buffyfandom #angelthevampirewithasoul #whedonverse

Truth. I am fiery and stubborn and fiercely independent. It has been difficult for me to even admit stuff gets heavy let alone to ask for help. But I have learned finding other ways to carry the weight does not mean I’m weak, nor does asking for help, or just putting shit down. Sometimes asking for help introduces me to a different kind of courage and strength. #robin_afinowich #selfcare #compassion #selfcompassion #letshitgo #breathingroom #truestrength #steady

Akame, also known as Akame of the Demon Sword Murasame, is the titular deuteragonist, alongside Tatsumi, and lead anti-heroine of the manga/anime series Akame ga Kill! Akame is a word play on Aka me, which means "Red Eye" in Japanese. So the title of the series means The Red Eyed Killer. #Akame #Tatsumi #animeforever #animefact #animefacts #animegeek #otakulife #otakuforlive #otakuforever #truestrength #Esdeath #esdeathakamegakill #esdeathsama #akamextatsumi #akamegakill #tatsumixesdeath #nightraid #animewoman #animewomen #animefemales #animegirl #animegirls #badassbitch #badasschicks #cuteanimegirl #cuteanimegirls #animewoman #animewomen #hotanimegirls #sexyanimegirls #coolanimegirl #animechick

Halloween is rapidly approaching and I know there are some differing opinions on how to celebrate this holiday or if we, as believers should celebrate at all. 
All I can say is my boys love all things dress up and make believe these days. Super heros, tigers, ninjas, storm troopers, doctors, firefighters, or these beloved “bones” pjs as our almost 2 year old calls them- you name it, they love to put on a persona and have fun in their world of make believe. On Oct 31st, we love dressing up as a family and meeting our neighbors and going to the famous “Halloween street” just around the corner. 
I shared these words months ago but wanted to share again: This idea of dress up- role play- speaks to our souls on a deeper level. We dress up we play the part. It’s so much fun, and can feel even powerful to hide behind a mask. .
.
On a spiritual level, wearing someone else’s attire can be a good thing or a bad thing. It can be detrimental when we hide behind masks (our picture perfect lives carefully displayed and documented for the world to see, our status, career, finances, religion, church activity, good works, titles). We can be like David attempting to fight in King Saul’s armor. It can be burdensome and exhausting trying to be someone other than who God made us to be. Or even worse, we can attempt to hide so well that we convince ourselves and the people around us we are really better than we actually are. .
.
Oh, but when we take the mask off- when we undress and come as we are, empty handed to the altar we find Life and freedom there! We find that laid bare with nothing hidden (Hebrews 4:13-15), Christ isn’t surprised but loves us just as we are (Romans 5:8). .
But the best thing is we aren’t left with the unmasking- we get to dress in Another’s clothes- (Isaiah 61:10)- His robes of righteousness, clothed in His armor (Ephesians 6) we are strong, we are powerful. We can slay dragons and fight of the “bad guys” (and our own sin that likes to lurk around). .
.
Yes, I would say there is something quite powerful about wearing Someone else’s suit. And oh how I pray that the boys are getting hints of this beautiful adventure story through child’s play. #busytoddlerb

To all the brothers out there who are struggling, but feel like they don’t deserve the help and support because it’s not manly to feel vulnerable, have a read of the image above
...
I too am one of those men and can honestly say I’ve checked all those boxes at some stage in my life
...
What has helped the most is being able to reach out to my brothers known or unknown to share, talk and support
...
It’s a sign of supreme strength to open up and say, “I want to overcome my struggles to be stronger every day”
...
After all. A lot of us do this physically by going to the gym
...
You can do it my brother ❤️❤️❤️
...
I love you ❤️❤️❤️

Energy Medicine ✨💊: it's one of those things that's easy to make fun of until you actually try it. Then it's like "oh, yeah, of course."
🔹
There's so many things I love about Energy Medicine, in particular Lingqisu (Ling-chee-SU aka the "art of emmanating healing") which is one of the many amazing tools in the Medical Qigong practice:
▪️Gentle, relaxing, soothing, peaceful (how often do you experience these feelings?)
▪️Deeply anti-inflammatory.
▪️ Elegant, with no negative side effects. (In other words, there are techniques for all kinds of ailments - anxiety, indigestion, sexual trauma, sadness, addiction, depression, etc - and these issues can be healed or at the very least managed effectively without causing any collateral damage.)
▪️ Empowering, because learning to heal yourself has nothing to do with fixing problems and everything to do with self-exploration and discovery.
🔹
It's so easy to do, feels good, and works, so it's easy to prioritize. At this point, personally, it's like brushing my teeth or cleaning myself - it happens every day or I really feel off.
🔹
And several of my students are starting to realize what an invaluable, deep practice Energy Medicine can be.

Energy Medicine ✨💊: it's one of those things that's easy to make fun of until you actually try it. Then it's like "oh, yeah, of course."
🔹
There's so many things I love about Energy Medicine, in particular Lingqisu (Ling-chee-SU aka the "art of emmanating healing") which is one of the many amazing tools in the Medical Qigong practice:
▪️Gentle, relaxing, soothing, peaceful (how often do you experience these feelings?)
▪️Deeply anti-inflammatory.
▪️ Elegant, with no negative side effects. (In other words, there are techniques for all kinds of ailments - anxiety, indigestion, sexual trauma, sadness, addiction, depression, etc - and these issues can be healed or at the very least managed effectively without causing any collateral damage.)
▪️ Empowering, because learning to heal yourself has nothing to do with fixing problems and everything to do with self-exploration and discovery.
🔹
It's so easy to do, feels good, and works, so it's easy to prioritize. At this point, personally, it's like brushing my teeth or cleaning myself - it happens every day or I really feel off.
🔹
And several of my students are starting to realize what an invaluable, deep practice Energy Medicine can be.

Why be someone you are not? Why say something that is not? There are enough things thrown at us every day to now try and remember what you have said to whom and who you are to whom.⁠
⁠
⁠
⁠
Strive to be the person who people trust. The person who people want to be around. The person who listens. The person who sets the right example for others. The person who lives their life as they want to.⁠

Tag someone who ticks one of these boxes for you. ⁠

Last night I fought nausea, got no sleep, slept only from 6am -7:45am... I'm beyond exhausted, I got barely any steam in me. So, on this #throwdowntuesday I'm taking it easy sadly but, doesn't mean I'll be lazy. I'll rest but also be productive 🧐... Yep... That's the lack of sleep talking but it's something I can pull off😂. And, some point today I'll take some zen time and meditate☯️ 😌👌. It's tough for me to rest, I think this is the closest I'll get to it especially since I'm on Stay-Cation lol. Hope everyone has a productive day! Don't take time for granted and enjoy every moment to it's full potential at the best of your abilities! #LETSGOOO !!!
Tomorrow's another day and I'm onto the next one!

Hey guys,

as some of you already know, my goal for this period of the year was to reach the 200kg in my deadlifts, squats and 150kg in my bench.

I’ve been working on this now for almost 9 months and here you see me pulling 220kgs after breaking my own mental plateau of 200kg! Goal for the next strength building period 250kg! 👌🏽😁 That’s the proof that our mind is limiting us sometimes and we gotta break those limits and crush them into pieces as long as we are prepared properly!

My squats are now at 175kg and my bench is at 140kg - still some work to do but I’m on my way to break my own limits!

What about you? Any concrete goals this year and have you achieved them already?
