It’s so important to have people we look up to, people we admire, people who motivate and inspire us to keep pushing. But, it’s equally as important to recognize that we don’t need to imitate or emulate our idols. *FULL DISCLOSER* This was a really hard one for me to learn. I spent a lot of time comparing where I was on my journey to where the people I look up to were on theirs at my age, and I used it as a marker in determining whether or not I felt successful. AND THAT’S RIDICULOUS!!!! I think it’s easy to find ourselves in a place where we are working to achieve the same as those who came before us and it leaves us in a limiting mindset instead of a growth mindset. What if you’re actually meant for so much more? What if you can actually soar so much higher but you’re stuck setting the bar and measuring your level of greatness through someone else’s?! Set and surpass your own set of expectations, go farther than you ever thought you could. ✨ • Had this post in drafts for a while...it’s been an ongoing message in my classes. A reminder that we don’t have to live in anyone’s shadow. That we can be great in our own right. Have an amazing Saturday xxVB • Wearing #UArush @underarmourwomen 📸: @kaise.white

Daily it feels like there are more and more outlets to compare ourselves to everyone around us. So, here’s a reminder: You are pretty enough, you are funny enough, you are smart enough, what you think, what you feel and what you have to say matters. Drink some matcha, or some coffee or whatever it is that you drink and go about your day, doing you. 👊🏼 The haters are always going to have something to say and there’s always going to be someone one step ahead...pay them no attention. Forge your own path, write your own story. You know, what Dr. Seuss said is true “those who mind, don’t matter. And those who matter, don’t mind” ✌🏼xxVB @chachamatcha

Just about to take off and head back to the East Coast! ✈️ But, I wanted to share the Instructor Spotlight I did with @kalfitlife! She is such a gorgeous soul and I was so honored to be a part of her series. We took a deep dive on all things @SoulCycle, talking about my favorite song to ride to, what motivates me and who my biggest inspirations are (@purposefulpixie, @angelamanueldavis, @charleeatkins) I put the link in my bio, check it out and subscribe to Kallie’s channel to stay in touch with her super laid back and authentic take on this crazy life we’re all living. 💛 comment below and let me know what you thought of the interview! xxVB

Happiest Birthday to my ride or die, festie-bestie, travel partner, shoulder to lean on, dance partner through life- best friend, @scottstaffi There’s never a dull moment when you’re around and no space that you ever enter remains the same. You bring light and laughter everywhere you go. We’ve seen a lot of highs and a lot of lows together. Traveled the world and made some of my favorite memories. Love you to the Coachella Ferris wheel and back again, a million times over. 🎡 Tag your bestie who holds the same space for you below and tell them what they mean to you. ❤️✨

You torment yourself, wondering how they could not love your burning heart. And the answer is, darling, you are not the star you thought you were...you are the f%cking universe and not everyone is an astronaut. ✌🏼

🌸Blooming Season🌸 ...My motto always: we don’t run away from things, we Run. Right. Towards. Them. 👊🏼💫 • Also! What might look like a normal workout outfit is the actual dopest outfit in the game, period. UA just launched #UARush and there are minerals infused into the fabric that actually recycle the bodies energy during performance and it’s a scientifically proven technology. Under Armour was the first company to pioneer sweat-wicking fabric and they are the first brand to take such a wholistic approach to rest and recovery in addition to training. I have Under Armour sheets on my bed and Under Armour pajamas that are infused with this same mineral. As someone who works out for a living, if this gives me even a 1% edge, then I’m in. I believe in the product because I know the years it has taken to create and saw first hand what’s going down behind the scenes in Portland. Proudly wearing this gear to crush my workouts and bounce back to life beyond the sweat at a more rapid and productive pace. @underarmourwomen @underarmour 📸: @kaise.white

Our transformation is not always loud and arrow fast. Sometimes it’s years later, your jaw softens and you realize you’re no longer the same as when you first walked in. Where you were once closed, you have now let yourself slowly fold open. Where you were once hardened, you have become weathered silk and see-through. It is ok to be here. It is ok to not rush through and destroy your middle- the place where you reach for the future, just before you shed yourself of the past. Each valley holds rich value. Each in-between gifts you the resilience to greet what’s next. -@danielledoby “the place where you reach for the future, just before you shed yourself of the past” Reminding myself that a lot of magic stands to happen in that space and enjoying each moment as it comes. xxVB Happy Monday 🌸

It’s Saturday! The weather is lookin’ right and actin’ right and I’m over here just happy to be alive! Find something to jump for joy over today...Spring has officially sprung! 🌸 • Which is also always a great time to think about spring cleaning. I remember growing up, one of the most dreaded but also most cherished memories was that magical time when we could open up all of the windows in the house, let the sun shine in, put on some good music and clean house. Where the weather is just right, you don’t need heat or air conditioning, it’s that beautiful in between time. ...I was unusually tasked with cleaning the floorboards, which meant I had to cover every inch of the house, wiping away any collected dust. Now’s a good time to clean house in more ways than one, to wipe the metaphorical floorboards of your life down. Removing the dust that settled and no longer serves a purpose. Leaving no corner unturned, roll up your sleeves and get to work. I’ll be joining you xxVB

You don’t have to be like anybody else. We’re all here to master who WE are. It’s so important to have people that we look up to and admire, but never forget that there is a different purpose meant for our own lives. That your story needs to look like and feel like it belongs to you, versus a carbon copy or footprint of those who came before you. I easily get lost in a conversation that doesn’t support my personal greatness. I think we’re all guilty of it. We look to others and what they have achieved and that model will always leave us feeling less than. But, when we recognize that our path is just that, ours, then a whole new world of possibility opens up. Make sure your story belongs to you. xxVB

Reminder today that we are not responsible for anyone’s happiness, other than our own. We don’t have to diminish ourselves in order to be there for other people. ...I was guilty of this for a long time. I think as we get older it somehow just gets easier to say no. And, we learn that the world keeps turning and people don’t hold as much against us as we might think. Put a big emphasis on your happiness this week. Doing what you can, when you can and not apologizing for what isn’t in your wheelhouse for the day. Happy Monday-ing! Stay beautiful xxVB

We’re competing everyday to become better than we were yesterday. Focusing on ourselves, focusing on our own personal journeys, and climbing our own mountains. I use @biofreeze to help me find the strength to beat my personal bests. To push longer, jump higher and find the will to get in that last rep. When my muscles aren’t sore, I can compete against me. And when I compete against me, I always win. xxVB #Biofreeze #sponsored
