My Lyfestyle Through Lyrics

Moments Between Music: Team


What team are you on? The new social media craze are these teams people create along with twitter hashtags. #TeamTwitter versus #TeamFacebook, #TeamIPhone versus #TeamBB, #TeamNickiMinaj versus #TeamLilKim, #TeamFuckYourFollowers versus #TeamMyFollowersAreBetter, #TeamBeleiber versus … actually, everyone loves Justin Beiber unless you absolutely despise a story about an American Dream Come True, but that’s beside the point. The irony of all these “teams” is that it’s simultaneously divisive. In one statement people are for something, yet against something. It’s indicative to the american culture and its relation to the competitiveness of its citizens. Why are we so competitive? What is it about Americans that make them feel as if they need to “one-up” each other in every aspect of life? As a poly, we are competitive but we also believe in humility, integrity and good sportsmanship when competing. We understand that as a team we are a family. Because our culture is family oriented and very close, our point of view on life comes from a more personal stand point. Whatever team we are on, trust that whatever the objective and goals we’re trying to achieve will be carried out and successfully executed as well as completed. So the next time you see a team hashtag, just think. #TeamTeam is where it’s at because you’re only being collective and not divisive; unless an idiot comes along and is all about #TeamIndividual #TeamSingle and/or #TeamAllByMyLonesome. I mean really, what’s lyfe if there isn’t anyone with whom to share it? It isn’t fun coming home to an empty house. It isn’t fun sucking down a milkshake with just one straw and no one with whom to share it. It isn’t fun going to the movies by myself (even though I don’t mind going alone, but I’d rather be cuddled with someone sharing the movie-going experience). It isn’t fun eating a grab bag of chips alone (although I have a pet peeve about people who feel like it’s okay to put their hand in my bag of chips WHILE asking me if they could have some. Ask first! Then make a move, because you never know if I’m having a stingy day). It’s definitely not fun trying to re-enact the noodle scene from Lady and the Tramp alone. (Actually, that’d be impossible.) That being said, I know some people who enjoy being single, but personally I don’t and it’s nothing I would ever promote. I have a lyfe and I’d rather share my journey with someone than be on this pursuit of happiness alone. As I said before, #TeamTeam is where it’s at. Are you on my team?

Super excited for @pttheshaq senior season of #trackandfield! I truly appreciate your work ethic and determination to go out with a bang this year! Thank you for continuing to work through our sessions! #atn #aretethrowsnation #fieldnation #tracknation #thrownation #coach #athlete #blessing Everyone... meet DeSean. Every day in throw practice with my boys @hfvikingsthrows DeSean is humming, going through vocal warm ups or dancing. He missed practice last week for a recital. It crossed my mind after yesterday’s track meet to ask him how it went. He sent me a snippet of his recital where he covered @samsmithworld - Lay Me Down. (one of my favorites!) Music is such a huge part of my life; always has been and always will be. I don’t share that side of myself with my athletes only because for the 2 hours I’m with them, it’s all about throws. 
In a few weeks he moves on to perform again. I’m excited for him! Just because I’m his throw coach, doesn’t mean I don’t support and encourage my throwers other talents and gifts. Congratulations @deseancarey!

If it wasn’t for @crossfit, I wouldn’t be in the shape that I’m in at 40 years of age (I turn 40 this October). Sidenote: to the 2 cars who kept braking in front of me even when we were going 35mph... 🤬 @kaylawilson_42 has pushed my car lol #stronggirls #strongwoman #crossfit #crossfitter #explosive #thrower #powerlift #push #blessed #coach #adventuresofcoachT Pillar 7 addition by @track_and_golf_4ever?
