  • All we have to do is keep trying.
•
And even that can sometimes feel overwhelming. This past week trying has felt like a Herculean task for me. Somehow I managed to make like Dory 🐠 and just keep swimming, even when my lungs were full of water and I felt like a drowning seagull rather than a majestic mermaid.
•
That is the funny thing about life, though. We take turns being on both ends of the spectrum. Sometimes we are mermaids and sometimes we are seagulls. The trick is to accept where you are and let it be ok.
•
I am in a stage of life that is exhausting and overwhelming and I feel like I’m drowning. Maybe you are, too.  But you know what? We won’t always be in that place. The hard stuff is temporary.
•
There is a glorious, glittering mermaid in my future. And in yours!! I know that without a doubt.
•
No one is destined to fail. No one! All we have to do is just keep swimming. And this seagull is willing to at least try.
•
Who’s with me? 🙋🏼‍♀️🧜🏽‍♀️✨

  • I decided to compete a solo along side all my students lol mostly to be on a stage again and have an opportunity to be seen dancing. Ive dedicated my life to it and I certainly dont perform as much as I thought I would at this age 😣 so, while i continue my never ending journey of finding opportunities, this opportunity I could control so here is a super cool shot of my solo
🚨🚨 if youd like to see me perform go follow @samanthamiller.dance and check my dance page, I am thankfully a part of a few shows coming up 👍👍💜💜

  • 📍 first of all I wanna say thank you to @fit_flowyzz who first made a video like this and inspired me so hard ⚡️ We met In person in Munich earlier this year and he is a great guy ♿️💪🏼.
There is one thing that really means independence ☝🏼 and if u paraplegic like me it is so important to get up again if u loose balance and fall down backwards. I train this from time to time and I’m happy to being able to have the technique and strength to do that stuff ♿️✌🏼 #wheelchairdontcare #trainingday

  • I had to remind myself of this today! With Easter just past us, I can’t say I ate as well as I have been. I’ve been super hard on myself because of this, but it’s okay because I’m allowed to have a bad day every now and again! #justkeeptrying #myprogress #diet #lifestylechange

  • You've seen those perfect "after workout sweaty selfie" pictures on IG, right? The ones of women with perfect hair and make-up, designer workout clothes, beautiful lighting, etc. This is not one of those pictures.
.
When I see those perfect pictures I either get cynical thinking that can't be a true after workout selfie or I think I'm doing something wrong because I don't look like them..
.
I get down on myself. I don't have a diva light or selfie stick or tripod for an amazing camera. I don't have designer workout clothes because I'd rather spend the money on something else and frankly don't want to do that much extra laundry. My hair is a frizzy mess on good days and wouldn't look that perfect if I tried. Makeup? Not a chance unless you want me to look like swamp thing with it running down my face from all the SWEATING. And really, WHERE IS THE SWEAT IN THOSE PERFECT SWEATY SELFIES?
.
This is what a sweaty selfie really looks like for me. This picture is a screenshot from a video story I posted after completing one of the workouts last week. There is sweat, a lot of it, and #nofilter. It's an honest accounting of how hard I pushed myself in the workout and that's something to be proud of I think.
.
So I'm not a fitness model with tens of thousands of followers and sponsors. But I am a coach that aims to follow her own path and help you do the same, whether you think you'll ever post a sweaty selfie or not.

  • Sometimes you just need to sit and let them talking about you. 
Do not need to talk too much, people will figure it out.
Just focus on your own. 👽

  • My first attempt to build the TT bike. It could have been smoother ... but if it was easy I wouldn’t have learnt anything 😝 I’ll be honest I wasn’t happy descending the first hill ... but I made it back without incident. #argon18e119tri #bikeboxalan #trigirl

  • Any perfectionists out there? I am a former perfectionist who realized that there were so many things I never even tried, as I had convinced myself I might not be good. Better not to make an attempt, than not succeed. What?! That’s some serious fear based bs. Plus, I was limiting my growth in every aspect of my life. I began reading about successful people & discovered that failure is a key factor in learning. It changed my mindset to know that each time I fail, I’m closer to achieving my goal. I now share in the hope that others might recognize their thoughts and limiting beliefs. I recently saw a video of a friend’s son attempting to ride his bike sans training wheels. His older sister was pushing the bike, providing encouragement. He wiped out multiple times. I watched with teeth clenched the whole time. He never did get going successfully. Here’s the thing though. He’s not going to stop trying. He may have taken a break, and maybe the training wheels will come back for a bit. But, we all know that soon he’ll get back up & will be riding his bike like a champ. We are born with drive & persistence. We just need to remember. •

  • The finished piece! I started this January 1, and I worked on it almost every day for a couple of months, then I grew frustrated. My skills didn't match what I wanted to produce..
.
That star. I thought I'd never get it like I wanted it. I sponged, and painted, and it was never right. I asked my family, and they helped with good suggestions. I cried. I kept at it. I made good progress, then the next day, ruined it. But in the end, I finally found some new techniques to finish it just like my son (and I) wanted - whew!.
.
I watched tons of videos, and did lots of research. (Boy, I'm so thankful for all the artists that post process videos.) Those gave me the new techniques for blending and shading, so I could forge ahead and finish this. (A make-up brush is the best blending brush ever!).
.
So, I learned to press in, not give up, but take breaks to get refreshed. Ask advice . . . from anyone - sometimes 'non-artists' can see what you can't. Research, practice, and just try again. And again. And still again. Wow, I learned a lot!.

  • It’s a balmy 70 degrees here in Idaho today, which means we made it through another Winter🖤. One thing I’m learning more and more is that most things pass. Dark~cold Winters, sadness, loneliness, grief, overwhelm, depression, and the list goes on. 
Sometimes we must sit with those things when they come, just like a dreary Winter. But after they serve their time they will leave. The only way through is through❤️. So, I want to say if right now feels hard or hopeless, remember it will pass. Take heart, better days are ahead❤️. #heartonmysleeve #ilovelucy #takeheart #justkeeptrying

  • Practice improves for sure. It's over 2yrs since wrist damaged but daily work on loading weight on my wrists is starting to pay off. #bepatient #keepstrong #mentalstrength and #physicalstrength #rehab #recovery Toughest part has been building strength and trust to get my wrists to take my body weight again... but slowly getting there. This post is not about the pose but more sharing my rehab experience and trying to give others the reassurance that it pays to keep trying to reach your goal.. physical, emotional or mental.. #justkeeptrying
