Just as a true warrior stands firm and unwavering, so the Humble Warrior pose requires us develop a strong and solid foundation. But as its name suggests, the Humble Warrior goes a step further, demanding not just the strength to rise up, but also the courage to bow low.
So let us be true humble warriors, equipped with the courage to fight on, but also armed with the humility to learn.

I also shake a lot of hands. One day, after a handshake, the friend asked if I’d been doing a lot of yard work. 😁 “No,” I said. “Why do you ask?” He seemed a bit embarrassed and I realized how rough my hands had become. I was healing from a recent rip and the edges of the tear were hard and scratchy.
Crossfit has changed my hands
As soon as I fell in love with the feel of a barbell, I developed calluses and tears. I’ve ripped and healed and ripped again. I felt pride and awe the first time my hands bled from too many toes to bar. But after that I realized the injuries to my hands kept me away from the pull up bar and made the barbell painful to hold.
I’ve tried gymnastics grips, gloves, athletic tape, grippers. But nothing felt as good or worked as well as feeling the cool, chalky bar with my bare hands. To be continued 😄
TRUE STORY-Tonight I had a long talk with a friend I ran into at the gym *small world* as she was talking to me and I felt chills down my spine- she talked about the 4 seasons. The 4 seasons are to be compared to friendships and love - seasons change etc- & I started asking question after question- like well why this and why that- she just listened- funny how I can hear myself asking soooo many questions- I just wanted somebody to give me answers!!!!! Anyone to tell me anything that will make life make more sense- I had sooo many emotions- sooo many unanswered questions- I just needed her to answer just one!! Just one darn question so I can get closure- peace- SOMETHING!!! funny how I just talked for 30 minutes straight- I felt sooo much pouring out of me- so many emotions- she looked at me - and simply said- Candace- it is ok. You're ok- you're going to be okay- just keep trusting yourself- (I'm looking at her like........ you don't even talk like this lol) as I fought back tears I realized- wow
............. ok. That simple huh? Where did she come from?? What made her come to that gym tonight at that exact moment- she just opened the door for me to speak!!! & I did. Crazy! because I'm not the "sharing" type and I have not spoken to her in over a year or more!!!!! So tonight I'm humbled and in complete gratitude- blessed and happy. Thank you heavens above for my peace and closure. Now I can Let go. 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽💚 trust the process- let go and flow-🧚♀️🧚♀️
