It’s my best friends birthday and I’d like a moment to appreciate her for all the she is. Thalia. I love your feisty attitude and your unfiltered brain. You can always be completely yourself with me because I learned to be myself with you. I’ll always respect and admire you for all that you’ve gone through and for how hard you’ve worked for yourself. You are beautiful and I love you. I’m there for absolutely whatever you need. I can be a distraction, a friend, a sister, a partner in crime, a food buddy, a co-worker, your voice of reason, you’re long distance bff, your waits-on-the-side-and-makes-sure-your-okay-bff , and your fake lesbian lover when guys hit on you. I’m happy if you’re happy and you deserve all the good things that go to you. Here’s to being legal even though you and I know we are old ladies on the inside ❤️ #bestfriends#birthday#twentyone#legal#loveher#shesbeautiful#bffgoals
Most of my mornings start with handstand training at the gym. Just like everyone else I have days where my motivation decides to stay in bed while I get out. This is where the power of community comes in! Often I train together with my friends Matt and Paul. Matt is an amazing acrobat and Paul is an excellent yoga teacher (plus a very skilled musician). When we train together I feel endless motivation to work on my handstand drills. There is such a power in coming together with likeminded people and share what you love.
On Monday I recorded this video of my scorpion handstand on a Bosu ball. I wanted to hold it for one minute and asked Paul if he could time it on his phone. With only 19 seconds, the first round was far from my goal. The second round was better, holding it for 43 seconds. Something special happened on my third round. Paul didn’t only time it, he also started encouraging me. This made me achieve the one minute hold I was aiming for.
Let me know. How do your friends contribute to your practice? I’m excited to read your comments.
Check out these amazing guys.
