Guys, I tested for and got my next belt last night! Not gonna lie: it was really hard. I was *so* nervous that I was shaking. I kept screwing things up -- like, all the moves I do everyday without a problem.
But I guess my sensei saw beyond my mess-ups. 🙈 (At least I *nailed* my bo kata.)
This is my 8th belt in this style of karate. Only a few more to go before black...which of course, will take at least 2 more years. 😂 But I'm not giving up!! 💪💪
To all my followers, especially the ladies: if you've never tried martial arts, now is the perfect time. NOTHING is more empowering than knowing you can defend yourself. Plus, it'll make any fight scenes you write that much better. 😉

When you want to take a nice photo for Instagram but your husband won't take more than one photo, so this is all you get. 🙃

There is so much bad happening in the world right now. Charlottesville, Sierra Leone, Barcelona, beyond. Staying silent or leaving it for someone else to clean up--that's a choice you make. A choice that will only lead this world deeper into darkness.
So don't make that choice. Speak up. Fight back.
For every like this post gets on Instagram before midnight tonight, I'll donate $1 to @islamicreliefusa. I picked this charity because they help everyone in need--*everyone.* They don't discriminate; they don't judge; they simply do good work for those in need.
We could use more people like that in the world. BE one of those people. 🌎
