Tex Hollywood - September 13, 2023

I may not be one to watch track meets, pretty much ever, but that may change in 2024 during the Olympics after realizing that track athletes are some of the most impressive athletes around.

Chari Hawkins is no exception, she's a legitimate track star, a USA Gold Medalist who competes for team USA.

She is also a babe, who threw the first pitch for the Padres back in August, but posted a meaningful words of inspiration about it today:

Something I truly never thought I’d have the honor of experiencing. @padres ✨
Today I want to try something: I’ve always heard the phrase “I’ll take what I can get” or I’ll take this opportunity”. What if we were a little more intentional? What if we replaced TAKE with a different word?: MAKE!✨
I’m issuing a challenge to get what’s in your head to in the world. In the comments (or on some paper if you would rather) write 3 experiences that you want to MAKE happen for you in your life. These can be as big of goals as you want, they can be something you NEVER thought you’d do. Write them down and let’s begin making them happen! ❤️
Believe you will, know that because it’s up to you, YOU are the one in charge. ✨

Here's the video:

Here's some of her other stuff like a tutorial for the next generation:
