Ya se cumple una semana desde la operación y un mes desde que me lesioné... es lamentable esta situación y más para los deportistas que vivimos en y del movimiento. Pero así como me paso a mí le pudo haber pasado a cualquiera... por otra parte estoy feliz porque cada día es uno más de recuperación y porque estoy desarrollando otras cualidades que sin duda me hacían falta, como la paciencia por ejemplo. Para los que no sabían me lesioné en el Panamericano de #brasil
peleando por equipos antes que en individual, por lo mismo intenté pero no pude seguir peleando en mi categoría. Esta lesión es solo una piedra en el camino laaaaargo que me queda por recorrer, por eso no me mata el sueño. No podré revalidar mi título en Australia este año, pero estoy segura de que daré mi 200% para salir más fuerte que nunca y ganar muchos títulos más, especialmente con la ayuda de los mejores Kinesiólogos del mundo en @kinelab
💙. Todo pasa por algo y esto solamente nos hace un mejor ser humano, pensar en las otras personas y que todos tenemos problemas, nunca pensamos en que lo peor podría pasar. Por lo mismo sólo les pido que disfruten día a día, paso por paso y agradecer de lo afortunados que somos! 🙏😊 #behappy #dontworry #takeyourtime #celebrate #everyday #love #bebetter #taekwondo #lessons #taekwondoitf #kinelabmerehabilita #kinelabmeprepara
We all get the same amount of time in a day, but what we do with it is up to us.
One of the worst culprits of stealing our time is worry. When things go wrong it’s easy to slip into worry and fear, but it’s also important to remember that as Christ followers, it’s not our only choice. We can choose to worry, or we can cast that worry onto God and trust in Him.
In Matthew 6:27 Jesus said, “And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?”
We are going to hit bumps in the road and we are going to face things in life that will cause us to be anxious, but we don’t have to stay there. We don’t have to pitch our tent and build a fire in the worry and fear campsite.
Instead we have the choice to take our mind off our fears and look to God to be our strength when we feel ourselves falling apart.
We can fight anxiety by trusting in God. He has never left and He isn’t going to now.
Instead of wrestling with worry we can choose to rest and settle in peace.
I know most of us like to control situations (present company included 🙋🏻♀️) and we believe the lie that our worry is somehow helping the situation, but we’re not. We are just wasting the 24 hours, 1440 minutes, or 864000 seconds we are given in a day.
Giving God our fears gives Him control, and He has the ability to calm our inner storm and settle us in His peace.
Christ died for you to have life and life more abundantly, but don’t let that be robbed by fear and worry. The time is going to pass whether you choose joy and peace, or worry and fear. We can’t add to our situation by stressing out and settling into panic. Instead, I encourage you take action and put your hope and faith in God.
Spend your time living your best life by casting your worries, trusting in His greatness, and not in your limits.
Let Him carry your burdens while you enjoy the precious day God has given you.
Love you all!

Flash back Friday of a bebe Olivia just trying to be artsy. This was 6 years ago & I had just finished my first year of college and was completely lost in life. I had transferred from Arizona State to Appalachian State, changed my major from an unhealthy obsession to my passion, and after moments of feeling empowered by these huge life decisions, I was stuck. Shortly after these photos were taken, I cried every single day for months. Rather than trusting in the process and surrendering to my new path, I feared and doubted everything, but especially myself. I struggled through the next couple years, failing a class here, passing a class there, until one day it just clicked. I stopped viewing myself through other people’s eyes. I stopped repeating the limitations to myself that so many others were saying to me. I stopped allowing judgement to hold me back and rather started viewing others opinions as interesting feedback to learn and grow from (or completely disregard in certain situations.) The most pivotal moment of my entire college career though, was when I finally declared my niche. The moment I told everyone that I would be a pet photographer. I knew in my gut that this was the path for me when I received more doubt, judgement and criticism and yet in that moment I felt more empowered, motivated, and determined than ever before. People thought I was crazy, in fact, one of my favorite professors looked at me and said “I’ve never seen an impressive pet portfolio leave this department.” Those words didn’t hurt me like they would have before.
When classmates laughed at my concepts I’d laugh with them, but that didn’t stop me from bringing those concepts to life and leaving everyone in aw of my execution. I remind myself often of these times, especially when I feel stuck in adulthood. Adulting is hard in general, but being a vulnerable creative doesn’t make it any easier, maybe just a little more fun 😉 I remind myself to never let my ego get the best of who I truly am. This journey is mine to own & I’m doin the damn thing!
