What a day to scroll through Instagram and see an inspirational quote image created from something you’ve said! I did an interview for @inkandvolt to talk about how I use the planner they’ve created to help me organize my days/weeks/months/year in the most productive way. If you want to read a fun interview I’m in, the link will be in my bio ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป #inkandvolt #planners #organization #plan #gradstudent #personaltrainer

It looks like the stars have been scattered across the ground.
17 years later and I’m still a bizarre, jumping child in front of a camera. Happy Wednesday!
Please remind yourself that there is beauty in this world. There are good people doing great things. Take time to breathe, reset and recharge. After you fucking call your senators though!!! BET YOU THOUGHT I WAS DONE BRINGING THAT SHIT UP HUH?!
Speak the fuck up about injustices, dudes??? This shouldn’t be an issue that is solely being held up on our shoulders. Everyone: please check on your friends who have been victims of sexual assault and harassment. It’s been a hard day.
Workin’ on those pull-ups ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ thank you to the amazing photographer @gangstamel for making me hold positions which inevitably led to my demise.  #rebel #therebelworkout #rebels #colorado #denver #denvercolorado #vscocam #vsco #girlswholift #womenwholift #pullups #fitness #health #wellness #strength

Hey, I think 25 will be pretty neat! But it could also be completely trash! Who am I to really say? ๐ŸŒฑ
Yesterday we saw two examples of human behavior. We saw bravery and we saw cowardliness. Dr. Ford shared a story about a sexual assault carried out by Kavanagh in the 80s. One main retaliation in this case is, how do we know she’s telling the truth? Another, why did she come forward now? Historically women have not been believed in cases of sexual assault by men who have positions of power. Dr. Ford was brave to share her story, she was brave to share the moments where she remembered him laughing, where he held his hand over her mouth so she couldn’t scream. Please, look me in the fucking eyes and tell me why you wouldn’t believe this story. Because this story has changed from belief to one if people even care about the experience that thousands upon thousands of women have endured. Dr. Ford had to move. She’s received threats. She’s putting her life on the line to use her story to help the American people to prohibit those who exhibit predatorily traits not be allowed to hold a place of power. Kavanagh didn’t respond to having an FBI investigation, he denied allegations, he continually interrupted the committee to make his points on how he is the victim in this situation. Listen, he might not remember this. You know why? Because adrenaline wasn’t pumping through his body when sexually assaulting Dr. Ford. It wasn’t a life altering experience for him. Why would it be? He was one of the many men that have told that they could do no wrong, that they can get away with injustice.  Believe women. Listen and learn from our stories. Our stories are valid, they hold power, they can ruin our lives, they can benefit others, they make us strong. We don’t tell them to get attention, we tell them to remove the weight from our shoulders and hope to provide hope to other women like us. Please, believe women. Please, believe us.
A day to reflect and see some reflections โœจ  #hellsholetrail #vscocam #vsco #colorado #coloradohikes #adventure #happyplace #zen #aspentrees
