    If feminist is about equal expectation for everyone and women not being afraid or thought of as ‘less than’ or ‘other’, and if you can train to improve strength, isn’t strength training in itself an expression of feminism? If your goal is true independence and a life without fear, the ability to move and own your body confidently in a space is one vehicle to get there.

Little sister, all grown up. How blessed am I to have been a part of your perfect day. To get to share in your joy, and thereby multiply it with everyone else who came to celebrate. . Stunning ๐Ÿ“ธ by @stephanie.mccauley . 20 years ago our parents met. But I think our 5 siblings are the ones who really made out on this deal. . . #love #positiveemotionproject #bride #bridesmaid #fallwedding #bonussister #littlesister #perfectday #sisters
We're so good at making relationships complicated- with others and with ourselves! ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ But when I peel away the layers of pain, defensiveness, and unhelpful patterns I'm left with 3 truths: 1๏ธโƒฃ We're all human (I think๐Ÿ‘ฝ) 2๏ธโƒฃ We all have something to contribute. Unique combinations of skills and interests. Our passions and what we care about. They lead us to contributions that no one can make. And your world needs to what YOU can bring into it. 3๏ธโƒฃ We all make mistakes - you. Me. Your boss. Your parents. Your kids. @msrachelhollis & @tonyrobbins . everybody. When you accept that you can forgive yourself and others for their human-ness. No one comes out perfect. We're all a work in progress. If you can accept this you can stop expecting perfection from yourself and others. Do these 3 ring true for you? Which of them do you struggle to accept and live? #growandchange #growthmindset #coaching #coachmentality #selfdevelopment #human #humanrace #acceptance #acceptyourself #weallmakemistakes

Grad school update! ๐Ÿค“ I haven't been posting often because I've been LEARNING! It's been wonderful so far, but it's also like trying to jam a watermelon into a teacup. ๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿต ๐Ÿ˜ณ My brain is so full I'm worried it will pop. What are your go-to strategies when your mind is fizzling but you still have things to accomplish? ๐Ÿ‘‡ . . #penn #pennmapp #levelup #gradstudent #gradschool #mapp15 #mappster
