What if we stopped thinking of "free time" as time that we have the right to waste, and thought of it instead as a gift that we should use for the greatest good? . I made this video at the Parthenon yesterday but I was thinking about you for TODAY!
#tbt This photo, I share it every so often as a reminder more to myself about the truth that their is no finish line. It doesn’t exist to me. No matter what you always have to see how much further you can go, how much harder you can work, how much heart can I still put into it? ..🏴☠️ This photo was taken the next day after I fractured my femur around the rod that is in my femur to make it stronger. I was doing squats with 225 and rep 7 it popped. My fiancé heard it. For a moment I thought this is it. It’s over. 3 weeks to go for my first show and fuck, this is how it ends. After a few minutes, I stood up, hobbling to the leg press and it was met with a hell no. It was then that I got pissed. The switch flipped. I hopped over to Stepmill, scaled that bastard like spider-man and jumped with my left leg only doing the work. Not going to lie, it hurt with every jump of that leg with my right leg dragging behind, but I made a commitment to see this competition through and it was about pride at this point. .🏴☠️ 3 weeks later I placed 2nd. I believed in myself and realized that this was a chance to believe in myself, to defy #osteogenesisimpecta yet again, and I love that part of my life. I never thought poor ole me or whined about my brittle bones, I put my head down and went to work, controlling what I can control, and the rest would fall as it needed to. After my show, the next day it was back to work, back to chasing what only I could see which is there is never any finish line there to greet me, but rather another lesson learned about who I am in mind, heart, and spirit.

Such a great night last night supporting @musiciansoncall and getting to be entertained by the amazingly talented singers/songwriters @charles_esten, @chrisdestefano, and #jtharding...all incredible, with multiple hits between them. We’re big country music fans, and there’s something so cool about getting to hear the stories behind some of your favorite songs from the people who actually wrote them. * I first learned about Musicians on Call when I was on bedrest in the hospital due to pregnancy complications. It was the second time a pregnancy had landed me for a lengthy stay in the hospital, but the first time I was in Nashville for it, and I remember thinking that only in Nashville would talented musicians come and sing and play for you at your bedside in the hospital. #musiccity 😜 I learned that MOC brings live music to patients in the hospital (and not just in Nashville!) who are undergoing treatment or who can’t leave their bed, in order to bring a little bit of joy to the patient and family members who may be there with them. Such a bright spot in what is often times a really difficult situation. * Thanks so much to my amazing friends, @musiccityswanny and @whattamelasays for hosting such an awesome night! * P.S. I put a few clips in my Stories of the songwriters doing their thang last night. So much talent! * #musiciansoncall#nashville#nashvillecmt#nashvillemusic#nashvillemusicscene
. . Don't look for new excuses. Look for new strategies, new reasons to do what you said you gonna do. . The world is full of people who don't finish what they start. . You be different. Reach your destination bruised vs growing old thinking what you could have, should have. . Could haves, should haves kill you deep within. . Be a person who says I did "inspite of"______ vs saying I could have, should have "but" _______ . . You are a beast. Don't waste yourself in excuses. Be you. . . . . #kdlakhesar
