These pictures have layers of meaning for me. The day after I came out of the hospital from my surgery I was dazed & confused. I didn’t know what happened, at first. I didn’t know if I got injured in climbing or BJJ. I was disoriented. I then remembered that it was BJJ. I felt a strange panic. I kept asking why they cut my gi off, & saying I needed to go back to class. I kept saying “Take me back to class!” It was surreal & weird. I wasn’t myself. And, then, it sank in: I couldn’t climb. I couldn’t do Jiu-Jitsu, I couldn’t work. I woke up in a pool of vomit & blood. I felt a deep darkness inside that I hadn’t felt before. I crawled back to my bed & looked at my phone. I saw a number I didn’t recognize. I opened the text. It was a video sent to me from my BJJ “Shero,” @domdabomburmom “How did she know my number?” “How did she know I wasn’t doing well?” “How did she know I just had surgery?” She offered me words of encouragement, & said, “When you’re up & about again, you come work with me.” I couldn’t believe it. Come to find out my friend, Leeann Morris had orchestrated this & told Dominyka I was in awe of her talent. When I was rehabbing, I had 2 goals: to get back to climbing the same grade I was, before surgery, within a year. Done ✅ The second: to fly to NY to work with Dominyka. Today, is day #1 of 4 in fulfilling my second goal. I know I’m back now. Something inside me feels resolved, working with her. Today, I met a woman I’ve looked up to for years, & never met. I’m humbled she agreed to work with me 1-on-1 for the next 4 days, & contacted me after my surgery. The comraderie & laughter that was already shared with our first lesson today was priceless 🥰🙏😘 #thejourney#bjj#recovery#grateful#newyork#jiujitsu#bjjwomen#fullcircle#jiujitsujourney#heart#gratitude#climbing#climber#loseyourselffindyourself#postop#surgery#ny#happiness#queensny
if every joy, every sorrow, the most eternal said to be endless, everything has an end, the seperation has an end too, you will show up someday, i have a hope inside me, you will love again, for many years like this, i am waititng with your longing, your memories, your hopes have stayed with me, just understand, understand, why you just understand, a little bit of the truth,
how shall i tell you about my days, that are away from you, i am left half finished like the premature flowers. how are you supposed to know the pain of being without you, you have never been without yourself, you have never counted the seasons. 💌
Si chaque joie, chaque peine, les amours les plus impérissables,
Les cieux que l'on dit infinis, chaque chose a une fin
Alors les séparations ont aussi une fin, un jour tu reviendras
En moi j'ai l'espoir que tu m'aimes à nouveau
Ainsi, pendant des années,
Tu me manques et j'attends
J'ai gardé les souvenirs de toi et tes espoirs
Comprends un peu la vérité
Comment te raconter les jours que je passe, séparé de toi
Crois-moi, il n'y a plus qu'une moitié de moi, comme des fleurs prématurées,
Comment peux-tu connaître la douleur d'être sans toi,
Tu n'es jamais restée sans toi, tu n'as jamais compté les saisons 🐘
Если у всякой любви, у всякого горя, у самой бессмертной любви,
У небес, что, говорят, бескрайни - если у всего есть конец,
То и у разлуки есть конец: однажды ты появишься, придешь -
Я храню надежду, что ты снова полюбишь.
Так, порой годами я
Жду, тоскуя о тебе.
Во мне остались воспоминания о тебе и надежды.
Пойми же... Пойми же,
Хоть немного пойми, что это правда.
Как бы я поведал тебе о днях разлуки с тобой?
Верь: подобно рано расцветшим цветам, во мне чего-то недостает
О моей боли из-за того, что тебя нет - откуда ты узнаешь о ней?
Ты ведь не осталась без себя, ты не считала года. 🐘 (Design➰Video)( #SerkanDemirezen)
Always love going #uptown for some delicious eats and a daily dose of #history. While there, I visited #Hamilton Grange, the summer home of #AlexanderHamilton. Built in 1802, the residence originally sat on 32 acres on what is now West 143rd Street west of Convent Avenue. It was moved to its current location at West 144th St. in 2008.
Not far away at West 165th Street is the infamous #Audubon Ballroom and the Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial and Educational Center. Here you will find a life size statue, pictures with his many memorable quotes and the renovated ballroom where community events are held.
Now it’s time to eat 😋 #Harlem#Manhattan#NewYork#NewYorkCity#History#SeeYourCity#NYC
