I got this video from Cait and it is exactly what I wanted to see this month. I’ve done something athletic since I was tiny. I think my parents knew I had to get that excess energy out somehow. And eventually it became part of my identity. I had to always be moving. But it’s also forged this resilience in me so I know that I can get through whatever obstacles that life throws at me. This month I’m challenging myself beyond what I’m used too. But this isn’t about that.
This is about getting moving in every way possible. And celebrating all the women who are moving, building, creating, and surmounting. Including you. You can start anytime. And you don’t have to be Serena Williams, Sheryl Sandberg or Anna Wintour. When I think about these women, and the amazing young female entrepreneurs here too, they did it for themselves and their achievements have spread to others too. And there is no better time than now.
There’s been a few words I’ve been repeating to myself, to keep everything in check: that only person you’re competing against is yourself; that you are your only boundary; and practice, fail, practice, fail, practice, succeed.
It’s exactly what this little video from ESPN-W celebrates (as well as ladies who lift!). It’s inspiring me more than anything today. Can you tell that I’m in this weird hyper motivated space? I blame this video (and therefore Cait!)
I also just discovered that the Notorius RBG gets moving too. And that makes me really happy.
