Leaning into the week with a big heart opening. Be Seen. Be HEARD! .
What is within us
appears before us
a cactus too long
I am all of a sudden
I am in the desert
I am without water
and not even
the one I love
so I think
like the sun instead
the growth of
I choose to shine

Last April I was challenged to make a 20 second video capturing the spirit of the contemporary, bold, and fearless woman. Now that we've added credits to thank those who made this collage possible I'm excited to finally share it! And while it's been over a year since making this video, I know that I am really #rightontime . ALSO: Happy Birthday @lavernecox !!

Raise your hand if you’ve ever felt a certain way, and felt like you needed to “fix” yourself. ✋ If your hand is up, you’re certainly not alone. 💕 For so many people out there, constantly trying to fix how themselves is a reality, and people living with anxiety are no exception. Whether the inclination comes from external pressures, or us just trying to feel better, it isn’t wrong, but it can be exhausting. 😣 Everyone experiences and manages their anxiety differently -- there is no one perfect formula. 🙅 That said, if you feel like you’ve tried everything and your anxiety just won’t lift, tap the link in our bio to read about how @sarahezrinyoga learned to sit with her anxiety, instead of trying to run from it + force it out of her relationship. 🙏 // 📷: @nayyirah.waheed #mindbodygram#anxiety#mentalhealth#womenempowerment#womeninsport#womeninbusiness#womeninsportsbusiness#metoo#timesup#femalefounders

Last week was not easy for me. Not only was I accepting some tough personal stuff, but I just was in a funk. Mostly, I felt like I was not a good mom.
I read several articles that said postpartum emotions can last up to 3 years if not dealt with. I like communication best. Talking things through with my mom, my sisters, my friends let me know that my feelings are totally normal.
It’s totally normal to feel like I’m not doing enough for my baby.
We have all been there. I work a lot, I train, and I’m trying to be the best athlete I can be.
However, that means although I have been with her every day of her life, I’m not around as much as I would like to be. Most of you moms deal with the same thing. Whether stay-at-home or working, finding that balance with kids is a true art. You are the true heroes.
I’m here to say: if you are having a rough day or week--it’s ok--I am, too!!! There’s always tomm!
