I had a very hard time finishing my workout today. I paused to look at my facebook feed (big mistake) because my mind was distracted by all the feelings I am having about what our government is doing to human beings and families (though in many ways it's not new) in our name. I am heartbroken and outraged! I let my hopelessness sink in and let that distract me today. The more we let ourselves be distracted and stay hopeless and scared, the less we are able to do about anything. I went back to finish my workout and raged my way through! Holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel said, "There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest." Whatever you need to do to stay powerful and to know that YOU being healthy, strong and present makes a difference, DO IT! YOU matter! We need to keep fighting to be our best selves individually, as well as collectively!

I have learned many truths along the way. They all helped save me but these in particular. I hope they can help you too:
.
Professionalism at Instagram headquarters is overrated.👆because:
People like humans.
Humans are weird.
Do the math.
.
Ice cream is delicious and lactose intolerance is real.
Diapers can help.
.
Pain is real.
Pain is shitty.
Pain is valid.
Pain deserves to be seen and heard.
Joy does too.
.
These two forces - Joy and pain - don’t cancel each other out.
They actually coexist.
And when we let them coexist, the light shines in through the cracks and yes, there are still shadows but there is also hope too.
.
Coffee is your friend.
.
Dogs are your best friend.
.
Life is messy AF.
It will never be clean.
To have it be clean is to live in denial and avoidance.
Which actually isn’t living, it’s the act of running away from living.
.
Granny panties are awesome. Wedgies are not. Period.
.
Bodies jiggle, squish and are soft.
.
Food can be used as a weapon.
And food can also nourish.
It’s okay to feel both.
It’s okay if food is hard.
.
Fighting counts. Always.
.
Sometime you just gotta scream it out.
Sometimes you just gotta cry it out.
Sometimes you just gotta do both.
.
Resilience, vulnerability and humor are the best things is this world. They bring us together. They give us connection. They make us human. .
.
Stories matter.
Share yours.
The courage it takes to tell yours will be returned in love.
.
Feeling is healing.
.
Discomfort is growth.
.
Dance parties are ALWAYS a good idea.
.
Laughter is necessary, especially in the dark times.
.
It’s okay to be too much for people.
It means you are an individual.
And that is an honor.
.
A shower, Mac & cheese and chick flicks on a Friday night IS cool.
.
There is no such thing as cool.
.
Introverts are not weak.
.
Naps are awesome.
.
I don’t and will never presume to know you for we can never truly know another.
.
And, yet, I still know this:
.
You,
Yes you,
.
Yes,
Every piece of you,
.
Exactly as you are,
However you are,
.
In pain,
In joy,
In hardship,
In resilience,
.
Are enough.
.
And I believe in us both.
.
Thursday’s are hard. Tag that soul friend who needs this. Thanks for being mine 😘

We’re excited to kick of the Pride season with this advice from our colleague and ally Kevin Korte, Associate Brand Manager at Axe: “My number one piece of advice is the same thing that inspired me to come out. It does not need to be a big fancy dramatic production. It’s about coming out to the people who you trust the most”
