Sonder - (noun) The profound feeling of realizing that everyone, including strangers passed in the street, has a life as complex as your own, which they are constantly living despite your personal lack of awareness of it. | When I look at this photo, I see myself standing in a sea of people, but then I realize: just as the many people behind me are just faces in the background, so will I just be a random girl in a pink shirt standing in the background of their photo. I wonder about the lives of these people and I make stories about where they’re going, who they will see when they get there, and what will they venture to after that. It’s a game I have played with myself since I was a child and I keep that same wonder in my heart as an adult. In your own story, you are the main character, but in someone else’s you may just be another figure in the crowd, your voice intertwined with the sounds of a bustling city. . . . #sonder #newyorkcity #timessquare #ctrlsquad #ctrlfreak #ctrlthegame #cta #ctbjja #kbjiujitsu #kbeats #ctrlindustries #digitsu #howhealthywellnesscenter #leaooptics #virusintl #kekoacollective #teamcbdyoume #submitthestigma #vulnerabilityisdope

Do it with love or not at all ❤️ This moment was particularly special because it was the first time in a long time where I got to share such a big win with my significant other cheering me on. It may sound corny, but when you have love in your heart, you truly can accomplish anything. You don’t need to have a boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse, etc. to experience this. It could be the love from your family, your closest friends, or your teammates/training partners. There is no greater power than positive support and unconditional love because moments like this are made sweeter when shared with those you hold close to your heart. Thank you @garciajunior_ for being my biggest support whenever I started to doubt myself and for making the process of losing the last bit of weight (on my birthday) feel like a visit to the spa. We are not perfect people and we aren’t the perfect couple, but damn, do we bring out the best in each other. I can’t wait to cheer you on when it’s your turn to shine on the mats 🥰🤩 | 📷 @blanca_marisa_garcia . . . #love #heart #cta #ctbjja #kbjiujitsu #kbeats #ctrlindustries #digitsu #howhealthywellnesscenter #leaooptics #virusintl #kekoacollective #teamcbdyoume #submitthestigma #vulnerabilityisdope

Hey, girl, heyyyyy!!! 😄 Fact: I get way more nervous and celebrate way harder for my students, team mates, and friends than I do for myself. I so deeply enjoy coaching and watching those I care for put their hard work on display that the joy and excitement I feel is almost impossible to hide from my face. No matter the pace of the match, you will always hear me. Winning or losing, I am here to encourage you. Huge congrats to my good friend and student @j3ssjitsu on an incredible back to back weekends of great no-gi performances at the @ibjjf Las Vegas Open and @f2wbjj Sacramento card! Super proud of you and happy to see you continually grow as a competitor! | 📷 @the_kyuchecha . . . #cta #ctbjja #kbjiujitsu #kbeats #ctrlindustries #digitsu #howhealthywellnesscenter #leaooptics #virusintl #kekoacollective #teamcbdyoume #submitthestigma #vulnerabilityisdope #sabrebjj #supportwomensbjj

Dançando a gente se aquece🎶😄❤ . . . . . And captured in its purest form: my signature warm-up since ever since | It has been a journey to get to today. With more downs than ups, I was still able to step onto those mats confidently and purposefully. It has been a long time since I haven’t medaled at Worlds (the last time being in 2011) and while an older version of me would have been devastated by losing in the quarterfinals, that is not the case today. I am feeling an overwhelming amount of emotions, materialized through choked back tears, but NONE of those tears are from sadness. They are from the joy and pride that come from overcoming adversity and the honor and humbleness that come from defeat. An older version of me would be laying awake in bed, over-analyzing possible mistakes and counting and re-counting possible missed opportunities; de-valuing and questioning myself. That is not the person I am today. I am happy. I am motivated. I am back home within myself. | Thank you so much to everyone for the love and support, especially my sponsors @ctrlindustries @digitsuonline @dr_spencer @coldestplaceonearth @leao_optics @virusintl, my professor @caioterrabjj, the @caio_terra_academy black belt coaches @vitorpaschoalcta @yurisimoesjj, my @caio_terra_association team mates, and all my friends and family back home and all over the World. Today would not have been possible without you. With a new found spirit and rejuvenated appreciation for competition, I look forward to embracing the challenges to come. . #divasdojiujitsu 📽@kbjiujitsu . #cta #ctbjja #kbjiujitsu #ctrlindustries #digitsu #howhealthywellnesscenter #savagethree #leaooptics #virusintl #submitthestigma #bjj4change #nomadicid #happyfeet #warmupdance

I think most of us spend a great majority of our lives in search of belonging. To find a place or to be surrounded by people where we can feel validated. Jiu-Jitsu is that for me. I am often asked “Why Jiu-Jitsu?” and the answer is always somewhere along the lines of “Because Jiu-Jitsu is where I learned to embrace every part of me, even the parts that I was told throughout my life were not acceptable and all the parts that I didn’t want to accept myself”. When I step onto the mats, I am not just showing Jiu-Jitsu. I am showing who I am in hopes that it will encourage others to show themselves. I can think of no greater gift. | 📷 @adamwjr . . . #cta #ctbjja #kbjiujitsu #kbeats #ctrlindustries #digitsu #howhealthywellnesscenter #leaooptics #virusintl #kekoacollective #teamcbdyoume #submitthestigma #vulnerabilityisdope
