    Wordless, the cosmos whirls behind my eyes. Silence becomes my voice. Here in this formlessness, my passions breathe in deliberate gasps, trying in vain to surrender and thereby conquer this new challenge.
    The temple I built in years gone by, now stands hollow. Pillars severed, crushed and torn asunder by my own unbidden hands, the altar now cracked, stairs stained with the mistakes of my arrogance, leaving the once secure openness of my sanctuary now undeniably vulnerable.
    Despite the chaos, of perhaps through the stillness that can only come after devastating destruction, there is a peace here; a tranquility in defeat. For while victory brings satisfaction, hunger always follows loss. And such a hunger it is.
    A challenge without name, rules, or reason - to satisfy a yearning that feeds on itself only to become all the stronger for its appetite - this is what it means to search for wisdom, seek strength and reach for self-mastery.

    Reptilelike, we humans slink close to the ground, mired in the mud of our animal nature and the muck of our cultural prejudices. Yet, like birds, we are also of the heavens, transcending our narrowmindedness and sinful proclivities. Our task is to come to terms with our dragonhood.

    A work in progress.
    This is a sequence I really want to get clean enough to rep at least 5 times in a row.
    My stamina is awful these days due to the #lymedisease but I’m doing my best to maximize what energy I do have to level up my skill and #balance as much as I can while I rebuild from all these health setbacks.

    #transformationtuesday We are always evolving. We have different phases in life that either place more obstacles in our way or create openings to take better care of ourselves. A little over 2 years ago, I made the conscious decision that I HAD to start taking better care of myself. (And these transformation pics never get easy to share😳😔) Yes, I do it for me, but I also do it for my family. My kids see what effort I put towards eating healthy and exercising. And hell yeah, I wanna look HOT for my husband. For the longest time, my 40th birthday has been my inspiration too. I wanted to feel 40 and FABULOUS. And I doooo!!! 🤗 You don’t stop trying. You don’t just give up because ‘you’re getting older’! NO! You press harder. You place MORE importance on yourself. God gives you one body. Treat it like the temple he wanted us to have. #40andfit #dwindlingduo #godstemple #focused #goals #fitmoms #milfsquad #doitforyourself #blonde #transformations #healthcoach #healthylifestyle #inspire #alwaysreachingformore #bikinimomma
