Every morning, I read my journal entry that day from the year before. .
Down through the years, I have always kept a journal and I wrote a lot about - Life, Church, Favorite boy bands, Favorite songs, Favorite actors, books, movies, boys, boys, fresh air (on the days I struggled with allergies and asthma), boys, career, kids, adoption and boys again.
Some things don't matter anymore and some matter more. Some prayers have been answered, some were not and some, I still wrestle with.
But one thing I have found curious about my life is that the things I thought I couldn't handle, the things I thought I shouldn't have and the things I was too scared to dream about, have been the things God has walked me through. .
And through it all, I have found that my story is not just about me. As I grow closer to the one who breathed breath into my lungs, the more I dream, the more I am willing to step out of my safe boat into the waves.
The more I worship, the more I gather courage to not only dream, but to make those dreams a reality.
So I just want to encourage everyone, do life with Jesus, whatever it looks like...just do life with him.
Motivation of the day. This was a valuable lesson I had to learn. After losing many friend and family you just have to enjoy your time while you are here on this earth you only get one life.
Aj was my first blackbelt match at adult for @ibjjf & I really wanted to win. I didn’t, I lost 4-2 😂 But I am so grateful for this match, it’s helped me grow a lot. This pic even caught the exact moment in the match that my mind was blown, so I had to share it 🤯 Who knows if I ever would of found the #lapel game if it hadn’t been used so effectively against me? Something that felt like such a missed opportunity at the time has became my favorite go-to. So shout to one of my losses, it’s been ridiculously beneficial 🙇♂️🙏🗡⭕️🦑🦍 #eastoncastlerock#bjj#denver#ibjjf#fujiathlete#yogaforbjj#sacredseed#wins#losses#learning#growing#reallife#itsallacircle#tmnt#allday @fujibjj @yogaforbjj @sacredseed303 #Repost @ibjjf

So this page is all about holding myself accountable for dumb shit that I let my mind convince me to do. I have been eating way too much and moving a lot less. It’s all a product of laziness and lack of motivation. I’m feeling fluffy and looking real swole and not in a good way :p Sooooo mama needs to lean out a little bit and lose about 15 pounds. This is a perfect opportunity to join me and start your weight loss journey! I’ll be posting updates on here to once again keep myself accountable. It’s redundant to dwell on things you want to change. CHANGE THAT SHIT DAWG! #strongmindstrongbody#weightlossjourney#motivation#gains#losses#lifting#thicc#veganmuscle#gainsville

Massive declines in insect populations are occurring all over the world due mainly to climate change, warming and pesticides use. The world is getting burned and poisoned literally. Politicians in Washington DC and other major world capitols practically don't care. Insect abundance literally "feeds the world" including birds, reptiles, mammals and yes, humans. These continued losses are dire warnings of what the human corporations have done to sabotage life on earth. Just read EO Wilson sometime to see what he has to say about insect populations and declines. That is, if you'll take the time.

A key element in trading is making sure you focus on the positives instead of getting too caught up on the negatives, “losses” in this case. ✅❌
Language is so important, not only for trading but for general life, and using the right type of words will slowly start to make your brain subconsciously think a certain way. 🧠
If you just pause and think for a moment how many times have you said to yourself “I just can’t do it” or “this is too difficult”. We say these negative phrases on a daily basis without realising, our brains pick up on this and our actions are then reflected by our thoughts and phrases.
At the beginning stages of your journey we do tend to learn a lot from our losses, so we don’t keep repeating the same mistakes. But after a period of time, that becomes counter productive. What I have found that pushed me, and many others in the community, through to consistency is to truly understand how to fully capitalise on a trade. That could be anything from timing your entry far more precisely, which gives you an increased risk to reward, to scaling into positions that you wouldn’t have originally realised were there. 📈
To put that into perspective, learning how to capitalise fully is the difference between sometimes taking a trade from 3.5% to an 8% position. 📉
If you make 3.5% in one trade then take two losses, you’ll only be net 1.5% but if you make 8% in one trade then take two losses you’ll be net 6%. If you’re up net 6% it’s highly unlikely you would over think those losses, but you might if you’re only up net 1.5% because you don’t fully capitalise on the trade.
When we take a loss, the majority of the time we think we have done something wrong and don’t allow our minds to see it in terms of probability. Losses will always be part of the probability game but having your focus on becoming a highly skilled trader and taking full advantage of these positions will take care of your consistency as a side effect. 🦅
Everyone has a different way of viewing the markets, this is something that has been huge for me and I hope it gives you guys and girls some perspective.
Comment below your biggest breakthrough you have had. 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼
I felt inspired to share this quote and the following story with everyone, because they embraced these often-misunderstood emotional experiences — Anger, grief and fear. In fact, they shade some light to these emotions.
Here’s the story:
A counselor went into a conflicting area. He gathered people from both sides and asked them to sit in a circle and to share one story about their ancestors. Whenever people from either sides stepped and told their stories, there were stories about their family member who were murdered, or who were killed, during the independence war, or during the Holocaust. At that point the griefs and the losses of both sides were right there, so it is impossible for the heart listening and for the heart thinking to emerge to move beyond the right doing and the wrong doing, and for peace to arise.
That’s why it is also possible to listen from the heart to hear not just the anger, the grief or the fear, but to also hear yours and their personal boundaries, losses, and each other’s self protections.
I feel this quote and the story speak really well on how importance it is to appreciate all of the emotional experiences, and to allow your heart thinking to emerge.
