This is just a picture of green plastic sticks. But somehow at some point in my life I was at the right place at the right time and I was handed a pair of these. In that moment I was granted both the biggest gift and the biggest responsibility of my life. A gift because until then, I never realized that being my flawed self could make me so good at something. A responsibility because when you find something that changes your life, you must share it with others. This is just a picture of green plastic sticks. But every time I feel them strike the pavement, the gym floor, the stage or my bedroom carpet, I feel a vibration that moves and shakes my life and everyone around me that shares the beat. These ripstix connect people, turn strangers into friends, and give permission for people to reach their full potential. As I always tell instructors in my POUND Pro trainings...treat people the way they ought to be and you give them permission to become what they are capable of being. That's the power of ripstix and a kind hearted POUND Pro. Maybe they aren't just green plastic sticks after all. #poundfit@poundfit@kirstenpotenza#sweatlife#rockout#workout#fitness#moversandshakers#goodvibrations
Day 18: Today I appreciate the shadows. The dark places that we want to cover up and hide. The places in our hearts and souls that we pray that the darkness encases, so that no one sees them.
The thing about shadows is...they disappear. They are bound to be uncovered by the light. The beauty is...shadows are uncovered by the light; through the process of time. It's a gentle reveal--a gentle shift from darkness to light.
Today I am so thankful that the shadows slowly disappear. Allowing me the time to grow and evolve and shine light on the parts of myself that are scary as hell--but are meant to be healed and brought to the light.
Be gentle with yourself; like the slow disappearance of the shadow---but allow the light in.
Due to opposite work schedules, our gym dates are going to become much less frequent! I am kinda freaking out because if you all couldn't tell, this girl is my motivation when I have none! I am extremely nervous to start doing this on my own, but I know that it will good to become more independent with my health and wellness and to stop relying so heavily on the beautiful mrs. @i.didnt.put.a.sleeve.on.it. I know we will continue to be supportive to one another! Couldn't ask for a better partner! #gympartners#sweatlife#gastricsleeve#iputasleeveonit#caraandjennaregoingthroughchanges
Took a little hiatus from social media again which was because life is on the other side of this screen!!! Keeping up with errybody else can distract yo ass from everythang you wanna do.. how you wanna do it.. and what you love about YOU! if you're getting wrapped up in bullshit, i say try it! go a few hours, a day, or a week without instagram it feels sooo good to spend that time on what's really important to you. On za otha hand.. this is my newest client Indie he hatesssss cellphones.
