📽🎞VIDEO OF THE DAY🎞📽 It was cold. I am tired. The tiny human was cranky. The odds were stacked against me. But I am not going to let negative Nancy win. Not today girl, NOT TODAY! So we pushed through it. We modified some. But we got it done. And then we snuggled to watch Boss Baby (for the 10372914 time). A reward after hard work is always satisfying!
Today was #plyofix and man did it kill me. Had to dig out the good old ACL brace to help keep my leg stable. Doing this was a huge eye opening moment to be grateful, after my 3rd surgery I was told arthritis would start to set in my knee in my mid 20s. Safe to say at 24 that point hasn’t come and as of today it has become a huge part of my motivation for keeping up this much more active and healthy lifestyle #21dayfix#beachbody#day9#healthylifestyle#workoutmotivation
“Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow.” ✏️📒 I’m always happy to be learning something new! I’ve finally decided to learn how to swim properly in the past couple years. It’s been an especially good diversion for me mentally these past couple months! There’s nothing like throwing yourself at a challenging task to get your mind off of things! As difficult as swimming is for me, I never regret it afterwards - even if I have to suffer with goggle marks and cap lines for several hours afterwards! 😂
I’ve also enrolled myself in some online courses recently which I’ll plug through, one at a time, as time permits. Hopefully I can teach myself some new tricks or at least improve on my current skills! 📖💻 I’m grateful for all learning both tangible and intangible. Life continues to educate me daily about all the other things that I can learn from neither a book nor an instructor. It’s a crazy ride but you can’t get off the roller coaster in the middle of the ride just because it’s bumpy! •
Se olhar no espelho e conseguir se sentir bem e comemorar as pequenas mudanças é algo que não tem preço ❤️ #Day9#projetodasameggas

Some chem notes from this morning, excuse my messiness!! I've been told off by three teachers today about my attitude towards myself. Apparently I don't believe in myself enough, and I stress myself out to the point that it effects my work 😞 I just don't know how to change that... A productive day nonetheless! Any tips on self confidence appreciated 💗

My boss is the reason I wanted to talk about this specific anxiety of knowledge-loss. I adore this man as a leader and have long ago accepted him as a pseudo grandfather. •
At work, we talk a lot. A lot about CAHF, and in summary, a lot about his life. Robert served as a pilot overseas for the Canadian Armed Forces in the late 50s, early 60s. He has also worked for the National Department of Defence. He happened to be travelling through Toronto when the Avro Arrow was revealed. He is connected to so many incredible aviators and aviation innovators. We can have people call up the CAHF office asking about the history of someone who passed away decades ago, and Robert can report that, “Yes I flew with [them] and this was the type of person they were.” This completely excludes many other incredible personal and professional accomplishments of his. •
I am always in awe of his stories and what he knows. I could only hope to have a fraction of that level of knowledge about something I am passionate about in life. •
And maybe most importantly.. be such a profound and impactful leader to the young, lost souls out there. •
Try as hard as I might to write down his stories and what he talks about, sometimes I just get so caught up in listening that I forget to document. But are we really present in the moment if we are constantly focused on the pen to paper movements, and not on the person in front of us? •
I don’t know that there is a perfect balance with this anxiety. I guess it is just good I am thinking about it.
I worked out. It doesn’t appear that way. Buuuut I did. Not a fan of the “sprint” work in the #fasterwaytofatloss program, but I did my best. Which honestly isn’t saying much considering it’s my second consecutive day of low carb. Tomorrow is regular macros and lifting, so all will be right in my world again.

Some stories we know. Some we didn’t know quite well enough. Some stories we never got to hear. Some stories that ultimately were never talked about. Some we never get the time to ask because life is cruel and unusual and sometimes robs us of the opportunity because we expect there will be “more time.” •
One could spend their entire life time documenting the stories of people they know - or people they don’t. Sometimes we only get a slice of the bigger picture. •
This is a picture of my grandfather on my mom’s side taken by @grampyzsazsa. And it is the most beautiful portrait to me. I absolutely treasure this photograph. But I wish I had taken the time to ask grandpa for more stories than to achingly put together narratives and guess at his stories in pictures. Grandpa wasn’t famous to anyone other than those in his hometown and his family. If he hadn’t journaled every day for 30 years, we probably wouldn’t know too much about his daily life. •
So now I am conflicted. Did I want to know more about him? Or did I want to know more about him to tell others more about him to prove I knew him? It is hard to say. •
The stories we lose every day when we hold back from asking the fun questions and the hard questions. I want those stories. I want those stories from everyone. •
So I guess my anxiety is wanting to hear stories and tell stories.. And it is something I know to do, but only live to regret when the time has passed. I need to step up.
