I’m learning so much about myself and confronting a lot of things that I’ve tried to ignore. I’m facing the giants in my life. My goal isn’t to be better for me but to be healthy for my service to God, my family and my church. I’m investing in every resource I can get my hands on and leadership event that God gives me peace about reading and learning from so I can be challenged in the way I think and grow in the areas where I’m insufficient. I believe growth happens when you’re able to come to an end of yourself, and I’m at that point. I have a big vision for my family and my church, and there’s no way I’ll accomplish it without maturing beyond my comfort zone.
So, be encouraged to confront the things you’re ignoring. Be encouraged to grow beyond your comfort zone. Be encouraged to invest in books, seminars, conferences and the like that will stretch you. Instead of buying the shoes, go learn about what God has purposed you to do from someone who does it better than you. That investment could help you excel to such a point that you go from buying a pair of shoes to owning your own brand.
And, I’m inviting all the guys to make that investment to join me July 25-27, 2019 at my Strategy Sessions Conference. This is about strategizing for success as a husband, father, entrepreneur, etc. I’m helping guys write their identity statements, draft vision and mission statements and so much more.

🍽: @waffiewaffle. How sexy is this dessert though? Make sure you hit them up to try @bmorefood’s creation! Topped with fresh brownies, @oreo dusting, Nutella, whipped cream, and @taharkabros’ “get woke” ice cream 🤩 TAG A DESSERT LOVER
Ya know, some days you have your shit together. You choose the healthy food, you crush your workouts, you hit PRs, you drink enough water, you feel good, and you kick ass.
And some days you don’t brush your hair, run late to work, eat Taco Bell, do burpees after eating Taco Bell, and wear your butt scrunch leggings backwards (which isn’t flattering BTW). Guess which kind of day I had?
Learning to laugh at yourself is such an important and fun tool. This is the moment I realized the leggings were in fact on back wards.
Life’s not perfect selfies, humility is an amazing gift, and wearing your leggings backward can humble your ass real quick.
Happy Monday sweet friends. Don’t be to hard on yourself. Life goes on even when you don’t believe it will so you might as well laugh while you can.

Posting selfies online isn’t activism within itself. However, it can be used for activism to describe the conditions that are withheld from public knowledge. That is, posting selfies isn’t activism itself but may be a form of activism if we use them to educate, mobilize, and inspire others. If we define activism as a way of transforming our political or social conditions/consciousness, then the act of posting online seldom meets this criteria. I rarely post my organizing work here because it’s usually not about me and I’m not going to exploit others’ narratives. My social media hardly reflects my work at the various organizations, groups, and collectives I collaborate with. It’s important to speak on trans issues but want to make it clear not to limit yourself to social media. However, applications like Instagram may be a great tool to teach and encourage others. We must do the tough in-person work our communities have survived from for generations.
The Colorful Seasons flat iron from @herstyler is my ultimate fashion accessory. Got my hair silky smooth in minutes! With 100% ceramic floating plates, the Colorful Seasons flat iron generates 6x more negative ions than a regular flat iron.
• Solid 1.25″ ceramic plates allows you to straighten, flip and curl hair for long-lasting results
• Heats up to 460°F to accommodate all hair types
• Floating plate technology allows flexible movements of the plates along the central axis
• 360° professional-length swivel cord prevents the cord from getting tangled or damaged
• Ceramic plates emit negative ion technology to eliminate frizz
• Infrared technology heats hair from the inside out, distributing heat evenly causing less damage to the surface
• Dual voltage
And I'm also using the Argan Oil Hair Mask
This intensely nourishing mask repairs and prevents further breakage due to over-processed, dry and damaged hair. Infused with Argan Oil and Panthenol to repair even the most processed hair, resulting in thicker, shinier and healthier-looking hair.
🇧🇷 Meu novo acessório queridinho é essa prancha linda da @herstyler ela deixa meu cabelo liso e brilhante sem danificar e o melhor é que ainda consigo fazer umas ondas nas pontas com ela. E eu também estou usando a máscara de cabelo de óleo de argã, esta máscara intensamente nutritiva repara e previne a quebra adicional devido ao cabelo excessivamente processado, seco e danificado. Infundido com Óleo de Argan e Pantenol para reparar até os cabelos mais processados, resultando em cabelos mais grossos, mais brilhantes e saudáveis. Estou amando!

25. How It’s Made.
I’m not super familiar with the pin manufacturing process, but since I know my way around Adobe Illustrator, the pre-manufacturing process is typically pretty smooth. I’ll mock something up exactly how I want it to look and once that’s ready, I’ll send over the final PDF to our manufacturer for a quote. It typically costs a couple hundred dollars since most manufacturers have a minimum of 50-100 pins, and then it takes about 4-8 weeks to get them back.
When we receive the pins, they’re individually wrapped in little polybags. We already have our backing cards and sleeves in the studio, so the last step is putting them all together!
HEAVY TERPS - 4.4% 🔥 HEAVY THC Rocket Fuel - Jet Fuel OG x Face Off OG Bx1 - CULTA
Heavy THC + Heavy Terps = One very rich experience for extended pain relief with a heavy helping of blissful euphoria... 🚀⛽ Rocket Fuel - @cultaig 👏👏
Testing @ 29% Total Cannabinoids and 4.40% (!🔥!) Terpene profile 👃🔥🌿👃
These are the numbers we watch all day long. Mostly the O2 to see if we think she’s improving, and to see if she holds her sats if a change has been made to her vent setting. Today chest x-ray looked about the same as yesterday but oxygen saturation is better today even on slightly lower vent settings. So that’s a good thing. Nothing else to report at this time.
I’ve played this piece many times over the past few years and the one thing that I know is this... you NEVER learn a piece. Your understanding of it evolves over time. This is why it’s important to keep studying! Even if you’ve heard it a million times... keep studying it. Keep shedding. Find new versions of it! THIS, is a big part of musical/artistic evolution!
René Magritte’s headless bronze sculpture, “Delusions of Grandeur,” has taken the lead against #kaysage’s geometric landscape in #marchmonstermadness, but it’s a close one! 😬 Lock in your votes because tomorrow, we’re moving on to the final four #surrealist works from the exhibition Monsters & Myths.

So I did this painting a few weeks ago, playing around with some plants in the foreground instead of my typical pine trees...but that’s not actually the most important thing in this photo. The most important thing is...
I’m engaged!! 💍 @hashtag_youre_it surprised me over the weekend on our anniversary. He took me out hiking at #rocksstatepark and proposed to me at the top of a cliff (I’m afraid of heights too, so that was fun 😂) Swipe if you wanna see a photo of us and a photo of the gorgeous ring he got me 🥰
So get ready cause in addition to all of my normal art, you’ll definitely start to see wedding related crafts happening too as we start to plan and figure everything out 🙌
In honor of Maryland Day, the diamondback terrapin is our Animal of the Week!
The terrapin is Maryland’s state reptile and the only species of turtle in North America that lives exclusively in brackish water—a mixture of salt water and fresh water—like the tidal waters of the Chesapeake Bay.

Honored to receive the Ed Block Courage award for the 2018 Atlanta Falcons. The best part of getting nominated was being voted in by my peers. Thanks to all those who helped me get back on the field in 2018 and thanks to the Ed Block Foundation for all they do in the community.
Do you really know the cost of being successful and winning? ___________________________________
Often times we’re only focused on the end results and everything that comes with success. But there’s a dirty little story that takes place in between the lines. Sleepless nights, stress, failure, doubt, and so much more. ___________________________________
Can you handle that? I think you can, but it’ll take hard work and dedication. Lets get it people!
Gotta say thank you to the @buffalobills for voting me to be this years #edblock award winner. It was a honor to take my mom on this trip to share the experience with me. I will continue to overcome all obstacles ahead of me & continue to inspire those I encounter as I continue my journey in the NFL. Thank you #godisgood#year9
