Stop always trying to just get by doing the least possible. Always try to do more. Always take the harder route. This is where growth, evolution, happens. ▪️ In a society that idolizes so-called “efficiency”, true determination toward your dreams is a radical act. There’s a difference between working yourself into the ground because you think you should and because you love something. ▪️What drives you? Have you paused lately to remember what it is, exactly, you’re striving for/toward? What you could back off or let go – and where you could push more?▪️ • • • • • • • • #fitness #yoga #yogi #yogaeverydamnday #dance #coordination #gymnast #gymnastics #contortionist #circus #fitchick #movementculture #strength #mobility #bodymechanics #flexibility #circusinspiration #inversionjunkie #inversion #balance #yogachallenge #inspiration #playfulness #pilates #yogisofig #instayoga #yogaphotography #bendy #quote

This yogi practices the art of movement and has mastered control over her entire body. Taylor’s captions provide uplifting advice to help others become more mindful of their everyday lives.

It pains me to see people (women-identified people in particular) tearing each other down or making assumptions about complete strangers out of jealousy, insecurity, or some weird subconscious need for competition that has been engrained in us by society and social media. We need to remember that everyone has a story and struggles that we likely have no idea about. 🔸 When I see a badass person who is successful, inspirational, beautiful, generally rocking at life, I want to befriend, support, learn from them – not spread hatred behind their back. Please believe I am too busy hustling and trying to better myself every day to waste energy competing with or hating on anyone else. 🔸 External competition is an illusion. The only person I want to be better than is myself yesterday. We are all unique, we all have something of value to contribute. What would be possible if we spent less time judging, more time developing ourselves and lifting each other up? If we remembered that more for you does not mean less for me? 🔸
