“The happiest people spend much time in a state of flow, the state in which people are so involved in an activity that nothing else seems to matter. The experience itself is so enjoyable that people will do it even at great cost, for the sheer sake of doing it.”
- Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi •••
Being challenged in a way that encourages you to use your strengths will stimulate engagement for sustained periods. It can also lead to increased task and role enjoyment and the achievement of flow state - or “Zone Moments” - that are the key to unlocking peak performance and personal satisfaction.

Fear, sadness, heartache, grief.... Painful feelings HURT! But it hurts far worse when we try to run or numb or shut them out.
I have fully felt many painful feelings, and I have survived. I am still here.
And I am stronger than ever.

I had the great pleasure of seeing a good childhood friend get married recently. (Congrats again @andysgotcandydoe !!)
It brings so much happiness to see the people I grew up with doing things that make them happy. Whether that be getting married, starting businesses, having kids, beginning careers. All of it brings me great joy.
Which brings me to my point.. If you feel envy or jealously when the people around you are moving forward in life, you need to take a long hard look at yourself.
Jealously stems from insecurities you feel about yourself. Come to terms with those insecurities and overcome them.
Being self-aware can be your greatest asset. Take a moment to examine your strengths and weaknesses. You won’t regret it!
PS: I bought this suit 20-30 pounds ago. Please excuse the bagginess 😂

Um dos motivos por eu dar aula de #crossfit a evolução e constante. Seu Givan um dos alunos mais frequentes nas aulas e segue a risca tudo q passamos.

Frase da noite ... A paciência, persistência e sabedoria e a palavra chave para você evoluir todos os dias mesmos que seja nas grandes ou pequenas coisas.
O quanto você repete com consciência revela a qualidade do teu aprendizado.

Procusto foi um bandido que faz parte da mitologia grega. Em sua casa ele tinha uma cama de ferro que era exatamente do seu tamanho e a oferecia para os viajantes que buscavam abrigo. Se o hóspede fosse muito grande ele cortava as partes que sobravam para caber na cama e os pequenos demais ele esticava seus corpos para ficarem adequados ao tamanho dela. Suas vítimas nunca escapavam do castigo, pois secretamente ele tinha duas camas de tamanhos diferentes. Procusto só parou de cometer esses crimes depois que Teseu descobriu o que ele fazia e lhe submeteu ao mesmo castigo, cortando a cabeça e os pés do bandido.
O mito do leito de Procusto representa a intolerância humana diante do que nos é diferente. Nossa sociedade nos impõe diversos modelos de como devemos ser e se não nos encaixamos nos talham uma parte de nós. Se estivermos acima do peso imposto, devemos praticar dietas malucas, se passamos por períodos de tristeza logo nos diagnosticam com depressão e tomamos remédios que nos tirem desse estado. O enquadramento em padrões externos pode ser violento, precisamos praticar mais a tolerância com os outros e com nós mesmos.

Procrustes in Greek mythology was a bandit son of Poseidon. In his house he had an iron bed that was exactly his size and offered it for travelers seeking shelter. If the guest was too large he would cut the leftover parts to fit in the bed and the small ones he would stretch their bodies to fit the size of it. His victims never escaped the punishment, because he secretly had two beds of different sizes. Procrustes only stopped committing these crimes after Theseus discovered what he was doing and subjected him to the same punishment, cutting off the bandit's head and feet.

The myth of the Procrustean bed represents human intolerance to what is different to us. Our society imposes on us different models of how we ought to be and if we don’t fit in this model, they prun a part of us. If we are above the imposed weight, we must practice crazy diets, if we go through periods of sadness soon diagnose us with depression and we take medicines that take us out of that state. We need to practice more tolerance with others and with ourselves.

WISDOM is the ability to use our knowledge and life’s experiences (both the positive and negative) to make good decisions and judgments. It is an attribute that is available to all of us, no matter our age!
The Creator also created different cultures, languages, faiths and races so that we can learn from one another—increasing our wisdom in greater ways. Who can you learn from today?

I think it’s time I tell you why I changed my personal account to this, now that I think this extroverted introvert has figured out the reason 😉
After Tucker was born, I found myself comparing. Comparing him to kids around his age, comparing myself to other moms. Play dates seemed exhausting with trying to keep up with “bragging” about him. It definitely played a role in post-partum depression!
When Boston came along, I didn’t have time to compare! He’s made me a less judgemental mom. No matter how many kids we have, all of us moms are amateurs. It makes me sad when I hear my amazing mom friends comparing their weaknesses to other moms’ strengths. Social media is a forum to showcase your strengths. Celebrate them. Everyone is different, that’s what makes the 🌎 go ‘round!
This is precisely why I wanted to make this account. To celebrate other moms, to spread love through joy + food, and to create a community of moms helping moms, utilizing each others’ strengths instead of being jealous or comparing yourself! 💛✨
