I recently watched a documentary on Japanese sword making. One of the critical steps is the engraving process. A beginning engraver can have as many as 100 tools, whereas a master would have over 400. When an engraver dies (I never got the impression that any retire), those still living look to inherit the master's tools. There are plenty out there that say tools don't make the man, and I would agree, but tools have their place. It depends on your goal. In Romania, I needed footwear that is versatile, but also makes up for my mobility limitations. However, I do not limit myself to one tool. The goal is king. Not the tool. The #adidas#crazypower serves such a need, and I prefer it over my platform specific shoes (Adipowers) for this reason. They kick ass. #adidasweightlifting
Also our current facility is very Eastern Bloc. Previously condemned building, broken windows, holes in roof, etc. Dig it.

I’ve been mistaken, I’ve been wrong for quite some time now. I’ve always chanted #Hustle and prompted my friends to #HustleHarder. This post had me in meditation since @lover.of.beautifulthings posted it bc it contradicted my system and my mantras. So I had to go into prayer and received a #word. “Babygirl you don’t have to hustle when you’re in alignment with me!” You see being aligned with His Word means I’m walking victoriously so I’m not defeated. Being aligned with the right people means I’m not combatting or competing, I’m complemented, cultivated and enCouraged. When I’m aligned with purpose, everything I need is set before me as long as I keep moving it meets its appointments and predestined manifestations; which propels me into #Destiny. Aligning doesn’t mean I don’t have to work but it means my labor is not in vain. #ironsharpensiron#alignment now that’s a word to win with! 13 ♡ 6 ✍

Congratulations to Arizona attackman, Colton Lloyd! Colton is the Anvil Award recipient for this week... The Anvil is presented weekly to an Arizona lacrosse player by his peers. The Anvil represents each Wildcat's personal commitment to not only developing his own talents, but a concentrated focus each day on sharpening the skill set of his teammates. When the battle has begun, it's too late to sharpen the sword. Each week the Anvil is awarded to the student-athlete who best personifies this concept on the practice field. "Iron sharpens iron." Proverbs 27:17
