Sunday Selfie Cheers✨ Given I rarely do actual selfies: today I'm sharing some happy vibes & also saying thanks to all you Monkeys 🐒 out there! It is an absolute sweat fest out there today 💦 and I wish I had a pool to cool down in!! 🌊🌊🌊 Srsly tho:
All the abs in the world don't mean much if you're an asshole. Quite simply. I see it a lot within the yoga, health, fitness, wellbeing space - looking "great" might be one thing, being great as a human is what counts.
When I receive personal messages from those of you expressing that I shared something that brought positive impact - that's not just IG btw - but in the real world when I'm leading @ClimbFlow or Yoga flows, at the climbing wall etc - that is the most worthwhile outcome for me. I realise IG is a fickle world and it can be so self oriented - many people absolutely thrive on showcasing "me me me!" - but for me personally it's something to share growth, positivity, encouragement and possibility, human connection and human experience. ✨
Life is never about you alone - share your good energy without expecting something for it and by the nature of the Oooniverse, it will be fed back to you via someone or something else. ✨
PS I have NEVER exercised to look a certain way-my body is the result of being an athlete for my most of my life - and for large chunks of it, being sporty or muscular got me the WORST names growing up. It made me feel awful at times. But the things I could do ultimately outweighed the name calling. What I would give to have the athlete body that did so many amazing things when I was younger. Now, it's different-it's grown up woman shapes, but still - it only looks the way it does because of my pursuit of sport. And even then it gets criticised but what the hell - I know what good feels for me! Message being-don't exercise to look a certain way!! Exercise to be functional and capable and strong and to care for the one body that you have. ✨
PPS yeah that was long - sometimes these come out on the fly. I'll probably reiterate this point again ☝️ ✨
PPPS Happy Sunday y'all!! ✨
