Homelessness 🏘🛇 Our perception is tainted... BUT why?
The people that need our help are embarrassed... they're not looking for a hand out. They're not out in the open.
How would you feel if the rug was pulled out under your feet?
I've heard stories of divorce, layoffs, business failures and situations that were completely out of their control.
Does that mean they deserve our pity?
No, they deserve our understanding without our preconceived judgement!
I can tell you one thing with confidence: The @mustardseedyeg would be there for you.
Tip: Be careful who you judge
Off Script is back today on Global News Radio 770 CHQR at 11am and 5pm. If you’re looking for some holiday spirit, look no further. Surrounded by family and friends and the comforts of home are what most people crave during the holidays. But what if you didn’t have all those things. A Calgary based charity, Make It Merry, created an idea to give something very simple to those who already have so little. She recruits strangers to sign Christmas cards and she and her team deliver them to them homeless. She discovered something that doesn’t cost a thing can bring someone else richness beyond words. #makeitmerry#yyc#homeless#christmas#christmascards#christmasspirit#christmas2017
Progression is what we should always be striving for, in the gym aka progressive overload, in life working day in day out to become a better person etc. What we need to realize is not every day will be perfect but it's how we respond to the not so perfect days that defines us. Personally I had my first "off" day in the gym since my show. Couldn't catch a pump, logbook was not being beat, everything was just off , with that being said I put my head down and did the necessary work, left the gym and ensured myself it won't happen on back to back days. So with that being said it's chest day, this is my side chest from nationals 2017...this is gonna look like child's play in a years tine because of days like today!

Happy Sunday friends!!! Where are you in this chart and where do you want to be?? 🤔🤔🤔🤔
FB notified me that this class was 3 years ago (already!), feels like it was just yesterday. @uottawa and @helloelevate had a partnership and I would teach regularly for them, and on a couple of occasions I was asked for specifically, this one in particular was aired on TV for a segment showing how students are using yoga as a means to de-stress and center themselves during exam period 🙂 It felt so good to share my practice, to guide other souls into finding their peace, their calm, in honouring and nurturing their inner child.
I stepped away from teaching when I landed in Calgary about a year ago. I wanted to practice, I came here feeling emptied, needing some healing, diving into the depths of my heart to find what it means to be me. What I've found is that I'm at my best when I give, when I share, when I lead and guide others to see that they too are light. We are all light. I'm ready now. 💜

Janna Ball “My Calgary Gymnastics Story” #ourpeopleourstrength
I got here from hard work, perseverance, originality, trial and error, and by listening to and learning from other coaches, medical practitioners, parents, and of course my own athletes. I sought and continue to seek answers from other people who know MORE than me. Being humble, gracious and open to criticism has not always been easy, but has been necessary to remain relevant in the ever-changing environment of Elite gymnastics. I deeply care for and respect each one of my athletes. As an Elite coach, I am the sum of all of my experiences. .
My best advice to my athletes is to dare to dream, suffer, and be judged. To know that you will struggle, but that you must strive to bounce back with fire, determination and graciousness. You are a beautiful work in progress, drive yourself with passion and desire and you will shape the path of your goals and dreams. #calgarygymnasticscentre#yyc#yycmoms#repost#thankscoach

“WOMEN EMPOWERING WOMEN”: Because, behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women who have her back 💕🚺
I am reflecting heavily today on the amazing females that have supported me & the growth of @perfectfit4u over the years. I am feeling beyond blessed to have such a strong and inspiring female presence in my life. Over 3 years ago, I started a company that prospered due to my connection and coaching of women who were ready to change their lives with fitness, and I’ve since been able to grow the @perfectfit4u brand thanks to the MANY phenomenal ladies who have believed in me and what PF4U represents (lots of which are not present in my photos). I have also been lucky enough to have not one, but TWO “moms” in my life who love me unconditionally and another new “mom” who will adopt me into my new family this year- ALL of which set a standard for what it means to be a good parent, and a genuine soul. I am grateful for my sisters, one older than me who sets a standard and one younger who keeps me fresh, both of which continue to teach me new things and allow me to always feel supported (I get two new sisters this year as well, both of which are beautiful, compassionate souls). I believe I have the worlds greatest friends (though small in number, they are BIG on enthusiasm and support) and certainly the worlds greatest client base, this is proven time and time again. Thank you, thank you, thank you to those fierce females in my life who made me who I am today and who will continue to help mould me into the wife, mom, business owner and woman I plan on becoming. I love you all. ➖➖➖➖
