This is Charlie. He *might* become my dog. He's had a rough time. But we are taking things slowly, hanging out and finding where we meet and what we need to work on. He is kind of anxious, easily distracted and has a busy little head, but is full of love, fun, and good intentions; more than a bit like me, then. He likes water, hills, running and kale, so that's a good start. We shall see.
REFLECT — Text from my parents — “we’re so proud of you .. you did great on the news.” Reflection & inflection points — in May I graduated with my Masters from the University of Pennsylvania — what a milestone and an inflection point in my life .... navigating my way through this thing we called life with Vern & Jen right by my side — AKA the greatest parents a gal could ever ask for. During any moments of doubt, I channel all that my parents have taught me & push through.
1. They are my rocks & two of the most powerful individuals I have ever met.
2. Entrepreneurs & exceptionally big hearts ... giving back so much more than they get.
3. This degree, the news clip and every single accolade I have ever received is a direct reflection of my parents.
I am grateful beyond measure for the endless opportunities I have been given & it’s not to say I didn’t work my ass off ... it’s just nice to have someone to challenge, inspire and push me... I love you mom & dad. Not a day goes by where you aren’t appreciated.
It’s been 3 weeks since I decided to stop making excuses and get my ish together ... I can’t hold others accountable if I’m not going to hold myself accountable. 3 weeks into JABZ & I am continuing to crystallize and obsess over my goals.
1. My clothes fit better.
2. I feel better.
3. I have so much more energy.
We are in charge of our life — we have to decide to change it ... it’s scary, it’s hard but you never ever have to do it alone. I have a team of people — come join us 💗 ... I’m always here for you.
This princess will run 20 miles in the mountains but will only barely move, crawl even, 3.5 miles on a walk in the city. My commute this morning was a walk, not a run, and it still took us nearly 90 min. Ay carumba, Sky Girl. Any tips for how to motivate her to pick up her walking pace??
Sometimes when I'm doing these running missions I feel super slow and like I'm making no progress. I made the effort to actually compare the difference today from April to now and I was surprised at how much faster I've become. Just got to keep going 💪🏾💪🏾
