A manifesto for my life

Everybody enjoys a manifesto. Well, at least I know I’ve always been a fan. Hello Lululemon bags.

I found myself thinking about how I wanted to start off this blog. Would I jump right into topics such as being a pre-medical student and why my goal is to become a Physician, or perhaps my experience with being a competitive athlete. I could even go right into writing about various health, wellness, and/or fitness topics. I’ve found that I typically prefer to learn about the person behind the blog before seeing the content of their blog, which is exactly what I’m going to put forward. Before I get into the deeper stuff, the core topics of what I want for this blog to be based around – I want to provide a basis for what my life is about, the things I believe in. What better than a manifesto for my life?


Do work. Fight hard. Live good. Stay focused. Don’t worry. Lift heavy. Food is medicine. Enjoy movement. Be mobile. Laugh. Don’t save anything for the run (walk) back. Push yourself, mentally and physically. Stop and listen. Drink water. Stop lying to yourself. Do bakasana. Tell people how much they mean to you. Surround yourself with people who support your most difficult dreams. Deadlift. Allow rest. Take action. Be humble. Be even more humble. Take naps. Kick your demons out of your life. Thrive. Eat good food. Enjoy good food. Trust people. Say thank you. Stop over thinking. Slow down when need be, speed up when you can. Drink a cup of coffee before bed now and then, it won’t kill you. Give when nobody is watching. Practice lifting form. Form > weight. Constantly work on mental strength. Ignite passion. Leave the past behind. Don’t quit, can’t fail.


In the end it’s all up to you. I know that if I can trust myself and believe in my goals I will have the right people supporting me, and I will achieve those goals. I’ve had the privilege to meet some phenomenal individuals via my previous blog and other social media forms (read: instagram) who I am beyond thankful for. I cannot wait to meet even more powerful, and strong individuals as I continue this journey.


Questions for you:

1. What are some of the words, or phrases that would be in a manifesto for your life?

2. If you’re a student: what do you study? If you are out of school/opted out of that route: What is your profession? I’m always very intrigued by the way other people live.
