I also finished this page giving love to the dopest Brazilian jiujitsu school in Cincy @limitlessbjj . My backs finally chilled out,( had to take a couple weeks off.) so I just started back today. Loved every moment of it. If you ever thought about training, check them out.
My sister is a lot of things. Breathwork instructor, healer, life coach. She’s also one of my biggest fans and constant supporters. Even before I knew I was an artist, she saw my potential.
I’m going to tell you a story that makes me sound pretty bad. It’s something I forgot about until I was lying in bed at 2 am and it suddenly hit me. With alarming clarity, I understood my past fears and anxieties about becoming an artist. And I also understood that although I may not like what happened, I should share this with other people who might be experiencing the same thing.
A year ago, I went on a cross-country road trip with my sister. She was recovering from a painful breakup, I had just graduated college. We were both approaching a new chapter in life, anticipating all of the exhilarating and terrifying possibilities we couldn’t begin to imagine.
The first major drive of our journey was on a long stretch of desert road. It was almost 200 miles from Joshua Tree to Las Vegas, and about half of that was right through the middle of nowhere. It was eerie, but kind of beautiful, to be so far away from civilization.
Michelle and I were talking, catching up on the last few weeks and talking about the future. She started complimenting me, saying how amazing my art was. She said I should be pushing myself more, turning my art into a business. She remarked on my potential and my talent. Michelle said a lot of wonderful things, but I wasn’t ready to hear them.
