With a lot of pain in my upper body and the need for more recovery days b/w workouts, I’m finding time to focus on my legs this off season. While I know I’m lacking in my arms and shoulders, I can’t just push through injuries.

I’m competitive. I hate when things aren’t just how I want them to be. I HATE BEING INJURED. BUT- I can guarantee, NO ONE will beat my legs next competition season.

  • Me:I want someone to buy me flowers and take me on a date because no ones ever done either one of those for me.
  • Person:no one does that stuff anymore lol so don't feel down about it.
  • Me:I don't give a fuck. I want flowers and a fucking date.
You have to focus on the most wonderful relationship you can have: the relationship with yourself. It is not about being selfish; it is about self-love. You need to love yourself, and the love within you will grow and expand within you. Then when you enter a relationship, you don’t go into it because you need to be loved. It becomes a choice. Once you love yourself, the truth of the person you meet will be clear. You don’t have to convince yourself that they are something else. Because you don’t need their love. Once you carry love within you, it’s fun to share, and you no longer need to make excuses why you should not love.
