What's something you need to get tired of? Something you need to call yourself out on? ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ My grandma died over the weekend and it's got me thinking all kinds of things on life; how short it is, how I want mine to be lived, what I want my legacy to be. ⁠⠀ ⠀ And one thing that keeps popping into my head is stop making excuses (a form of bullshit). ⠀ ⠀ You want to be healthier?

That’s what my very eccentric Hot Onit (it’s like a yoga 🧘🏼‍♂️ class with a little weight 💪🏻thrown in) kept shouting at the class today. “Only you know if you are giving it your all!” “How you do one thing is how you do everything!” I’ve also heard it said that “how you take the hill, is how you take life,” meaning when you’re on a run 🏃🏼‍♀️ and face a hill 🏔 some people automatically stop to walk and some people charge at the hill, pushing themselves to go harder.

I won’t care what size dress 👗 I’m buried in.
