Hands in the air, feet off the ground, all of your muscles tense. Fighting gravity, gaining speed, testing your flexibility. Weightless, if only for a second. A twist, a turn. Trust. Moments of fearlessness. Moments later, your feet are back on the ground.
In these seconds a girl accomplishes tricks that she perhaps at one point never believed she herself could do. And now, she actively challenges those doubts, those fears. Spirit over fear. Mind over matter. It is often our own personal hesitations and limitations that hold us back after all.
Super women? Perhaps. Surely inspirational. Balancing upside-down hand in hand body tensed gracefully in the air. Only remaining upright by the sheer force of her muscles, her strength- mentally and physically.
WHY NOT? Bc she can.
I want to say happy birthday to my beautiful sister, Elise. She not only continues to find her own way and build her strengths, but she manages to do so with such poise and inspiration. Cheers to the adventures ahead!
I really recommend trying Acro yoga if you haven’t already! It creates good body awareness, and it is strength and character building. You can accomplish things that you never thought you could, and there is a lot to be gained by putting such trust in others.
