Wow what a ride!! Closing out 2018 placing 3rd at my first NoGi tournament. When I first started Jiu Jitsu, I thought that you have to be physically tough to endure the rigors of training but I found that you have to be mentally tough if not tougher to be able to continue on this journey. A loss like this can be physically and mentally tough to overcome. For the past few months I’ve been dealing with inner anxiety, inner demons and a lot of times, I’m not in the right mindset whether in tournaments or just rolling with teammates. I feel lost and doubt sink in thinking do I have the right skill set to continue my journey in Jiu Jitsu. But the OG side in me tells me to keep moving forward and not give up. It’s not how many times you fall, but how many times you pick yourself up. Looking forward to what 2019 has in store for me. I would like to thank professor @kbjiujitsu and @laithnsourbjj for coaching me today and professor @vitorpaschoalcta for going over my game plan for this tournament. #rootsunioncity#roots#bjj#nogi#nogiworlds#ibjjfworlds#brazilianjiujitsu#cta#caioterrabjj#caioterraassociation
Yo estoy otra vez orgullosa y agradecida, porque puedo estar ahí para vivir el momento de la magia, cuando se olvidan de la técnica y comprenden que existe solo una danza: la de la libertad. Y existe solo una competencia: la de ganarle a los límites de cada una. Conocerse, hermanarse, formar tribu, disfrutar y celebrar la vida, agradeciendo la música y el movimiento. Sanar. ¡Gracias, queridas alumnas! Mi corazón está alegre y más grande. Las quiero mucho 💃💕 Danza Raíz 💚 #tanz#danseuses#raqssharqi#orientaldancing #💃#students#tribe#dancinglife#roots #🌹
My #heart is so full of #love right now that I get to spend a few #precious#moments with my #beloved #family. Family is your #foundation your #roots. I got to see my #twin and my extended family twice in 2 months when I haven't seen them all in 4 years. Sure, we #text an' stuff, but there is nothing like being in their actual presence. For someone who grew up like me for when #food and family are your #backbone, being without them is like being a #fish without #water. And of course Cocie J makes the best #rum n' cokes with maraschino #cherries. If you are not as #blessed as I am with your nuclear family, you have a #choice to make your immediate family with #loved ones and #friends. You get one life. Do it. Make it #count. You are so much #stronger than you think you are. You got this. #peace
We made Hungarian Christmas Kifli tonight! My mom learned how to make them from our Hungarian grandmother, Mary who passed away on Christmas Eve in 1980. I love to honor her in ways such as these... she loved making these cookies. Tonight was so much fun & we really enjoyed learning how to make these. ❤️🎄#Christmas2018 #kifli#hungarian
