#straturday 🖤🎸⚡️ Heres a lil badly phone wrote story on how I started playing... for like my 14th bday I got this #squier strat I tried so hard to play it and the instructional vid that came with I just didnt understand, and one of the biggest hurdles was how do you play chords(didnt know they were called that then)? Where were my fingers suppose to be and where to strum? So I gave up after trying for 2 months, it was so difficult and I wasnt getting anywere, i was so sad, frustrated and pissed off. He sat in my closet for the next 10yrs ! Thought about playing him alot but never picked it back up. UNTIL About a year and half ago... something just came over me I had this insecable urge to Play. Something in my head kept nagging, That I do. So I pulled it out of my closet... was the best decision I have ever made! I LOVE PLAYING IM ADDICTED 🖤 back to the story... looked up on youtube super beginner tuts, how to strum etc. Music theory and all that... I was just thirsty for all the knowledge and I was actually gettin somewhere this time round. Because of this I Just couldnt part with him... I wanted to know everything and it all came so easily and felt natural and RIGHT unlike before ! Must of played 30hrs a day for like 4 months straight and now I still try to play a couple hours a day #studentofmusic#longwaytogo I also Love to play Piano and have played off and on since I got my first piano for xmas when I was like 6 🖤 If youve made it this far fuckn hell good on ya! ✨ Lemme know... How did you start playing ? 🖤🖤 #stilllearning#guitarinsta#guitargirl#selftaughtguitarist#guitarstories#stratocaster#voxamps#beyerdynamic#squierstrat#storytime#geartalk#grungeaesthetic#guitaristsofinstagram#femaleguitarplayer
I practice everything I have ever preached! Which is, to be persistent with whatever your goal is! .
I built my body over years of training.. And then came my pregnancy phase, which didn’t break me or lead me to worry abt what it will do to my body.. BUT Motivated me further more!! Really!! The motivation of getting back was one of the main reasons that made me enjoy my pregnancy to every bit! 😌 .
I have mentioned in my captions before that I’m going to return stronger, just that I thought it’s gonna be 2019 But here I am! OUT-DOING MY OWN EXPECTATIONS!! 💪🏻
Yes I still have my post-pregnancy belly but
This is me, Just 3 months after giving birth!! Without any supplements!! 🙌🏻😎 #bodygoals .
Working out takes an enormous amount of passion and dedication! It’s my constant hard work, consistency, discipline and sacrifice that is paying off!! Specially when I’m eating more than I ever have to maintain my milk supply while losing body fat. It’s damn challenging but it must be done!! 💪🏻
With an infant to tc of, I don’t have time on me & I’m always on my toes AND YET If I can get back, then so can you!! .
One of the best things i did this year is starting to train Jiujitsu. 🥋🥋It’s been almost 7 months so far and i already got to meet so many awesome n cool people from all over the world. The positive energy influences me so much and i hope i can bring more friends to train and let them experience what i’ve gained from it. Today, i am very happy to receive 2 stripes from my coach Saulo @livepantai Thank you for pushing me to train and to COMPETE🥇...it’s something that i never really think i would do! Muito Obrigada!!! Keep training for life! #jiujitsuforlife#whitebeltbjj#jiujitsugirls#oss#longwaytogo#myjourneysjustbegun
A Transfornation Story : A Butterfly that Thought It Was Still a Caterpillar 🐛
The change from caterpillar to butterfly is one of the most used metaphors to talk about resilience. Butterflies are a symbol of transformation, simultaneously a symbol of fragility and greatness too. That’s why a butterfly is a natural protagonist of a transformation story.
A Caterpillar sat there, observing the world around it, and felt that life was too beautiful to not transform with it. While the caterpillar was tired and, at the same time, grateful for its life as a caterpillar, it knew that the time had come to become something else.
This tale of transformation reminds us that we live in a changing, dynamic world of constant evolution and that we’re a part of it. But sometimes, although we have transformed and have the strength to change, we don’t accept it for whatever reason: maybe fear, shame, guilt …At that moment, it began to understand that it was no longer a caterpillar, that perhaps those heavy wings could be useful.
No more smith machine for me. My form in this clip in pretty embarrassing but I’ve been taking steps to improve it. As you can see I’m not squatting down far enough (Only half range of motion) and I’m kind of bending forwards (can cause spine or neck injuries). Just keep on trucking guys 💪 #squat#form#hardwork#extramile#sweat#longwaytogo#motivation
