Collaboration is a group of people working jointly to create something. Collaboration means more love, and less hate. It means growing together, instead of growing over. It means there is a place for everyone to work together to create change in the way we think. It means we are strongest when we are together.

Strong is a word that denotes many things and can be interpreted many ways but for simplicity’s sake, let’s break the idea of strength into three separate categories. There is physical strength, the kind that allows you to lift heavy things and move large pieces of furniture from one place in a room to the next. There’s mental strength, which for many conjures up an image of perseverance, or the mental fortitude required to write a book or perform heart surgery. Finally, there’s emotional strength, a kind of resiliency that exists when you make it through something emotionally challenging. Caring for a sick parent, the death of a sister, or going through a divorce all require emotional strength.
Jo authors a blog where she writes honestly and courageously about living with chronic pain. She is a true badass. While a work injury ended the career she loved, fighting fires, and left her with chronic and unrelenting pain she refused to let that be the end of her story. She worked to understand her pain and find her way back to movement and living life fully. Her blog documents that journey. One she’s still on.
“You’re so brave”. “You’re fearless”. On Instagram people think I am scared of nothing.
From a distance, what I do seems dangerous and/or brave. I balance on rocks. Sometimes on one arm. I do flips on concrete. I do handstands on everything. I’m “fearless”.
But up close, what my InstaFriends don’t see is how long it takes me to get there.
