ever heard that rest can be just as important as physical work? i’m in the process of experiencing this now. and I’m really bad at it. i’m impatient. i set a goal and work as hard as i can to accomplish it. it’s what i’ve always done. it’s me. i’ve had to be checked by my coach, my husband & my family- to slow down. i don’t like to go slow. it’s not in my nature. but the reality is i had major surgery, i was emotionally drained from spending a month in the NICU with my daughter and i’m exhausted from being a new mom. i’m working on balance & that’s tough. today i’m understanding in order for me to go fast in the end i have to go slow now. anyone else here with me? working on a goal that isn’t going to happen over night? i’m in this with you!🙋🏾‍♀️

every big goal has to start somewhere. a plan to get there must be executed. that’s where I am today.🙋🏾‍♀️preparation to make my dream reality. one small step at a time

anybody else starting at the bottom trying to tackle a big goal? what is it? you aren’t alone🤗

my heart is so full💗

it felt like this day would never come. overjoyed to get to bring our baby girl home💕

giving birth 2 months early is something I never imagined. it was terrifying. it brought me to tears to have to leave the hospital without my baby. in the midst of this tough situation i know God has a purpose and my family is choosing to trust Him. camryn came into this world a fighter & it’s the only way we know how to live. 📷: @pwesley22

“If I come back and I'm just not the same, if I can't make a fifth Olympic team, I'm gonna know that I fought, that I was determined, and that I gave it my absolute all. And if it doesn't end up the way I imagined in my head, it'll be OK. I just have to go for it, because that's just simply who we are now.”

it is important for me to step out of my comfort zone and share my experiences on this journey. i know i’m not alone. i hope that my struggles & fears can help others and continue a conversation to bring change. pregnancy in sports shouldn’t feel risky. but the reality is that it is. it’s scary to tell an employer you are starting a family and not know if you will be supported. i know a lot of women can relate no matter what field you are in. i don’t want my daughter to experience these inequalities. I want REAL equality for her.

i’m so grateful for every set back, every race lost, the injuries, the failures & every obstacle. these are the experiences that have made me resilient. every lesson has made me deeply appreciative when a goal is accomplished. these challenges developed my character & integrity. i couldn’t see it while i was in it, but now i look back and cherish all of the difficult moments and fully embrace the ones to come. 📷: @jeffcohenphoto

so much to be grateful for💛
