ALWAYS remember: you are braver than you believe, stronger than
you seem & smarter than you think.

i’m not racing or even training, but that doesn’t mean #FlatKelly can’t sparkle. i’m still a #SuperFastKickAssPrincess even while laying in bed & adhering to doctor-ordered-post-surgery-rest, right?! #superfastisjustamatterofperception

recovering from yet another surgery, i’m trying to remind myself that life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain. & no matter how long the rain lasts, there will always be a rainbow at the end… really looking forward to the sun coming out & the rainbow appearing.

by @according2kelly on July 25, 2014


my daily reminders: don’t forget to… #BeAwesome, #ChooseJoy, & #Breathe. but most importantly i need to remember that “i am braver than i believe & stronger than i seem.”

bracelets include a combination of: pura vida, endorphin warrior,  and the beaded butterfly bracelets.

every cloud has a silver lining & there is ALWAYS something to be thankful for. the trick is learning to recognize it.
