Two years ago,
There were a lot of people saying -
“This will be over in 2 weeks”
Shows would open again.
We’d be getting back on stage.
Nailing our prep.
Hasn’t been the case.
It’s taken years for the world to right itself,
And to start to heal.
In 2022, shows are back.
I can only begin to describe the energy of being back at WBFF.
It felt like there was a whole new level of aliveness.
Because things might be returning back to normal this time.
(How many times have you heard that over the last two years?)
And then sadly…
I got injured.
And not “injured, but I can train like usual”.
I got injured to the point where I could barely train at all.
I want to be honest with you -
I’ve really struggled.
I’ve felt at times that I’m so far away from where I was,
And where I truly want to be,
As an athlete and a human.
But instead of stomping around asking:
“Why is this happening to me?”
I’m navigating my way through this experience.
I’m trying my best to stay humble.
And lean more into:
“What is this teaching me?”
Because the truth is -
Life will never not be hard.
Once you have left one set of challenges,
A new one will arise.
But how I practice this attitude is only possible through a very specific thing that I always make sure to have…
It’s not training (I’m injured!)
It’s not nutrition (although that’s part of what I do)
It’s the people around me.
You don’t have to conquer the mountain alone.
And in fact, it’s better if you don’t.
I created a community of resourceful women powerfully supporting one another for you called -
The Sports Model Project.
Where you will be cared for and guided by a team of dedicated coaches.
So you live your life -
SMP is only for the hardest worker in the room.
And sometimes the hardest work is knowing when to cry,
And lean into your support network,
And when to be the support network.
Is it time to come home?
Love & light,
SMP Coaching Team
