I am starting a new hashtag #WarriorGenius inspired by all the Warrior-Genius people who lifted me up over the last couple days. Just when I was about to crumble, my Warrior-Genius’s peeps reached out to me with their wisdom, support, open heart and brilliance to pick me up. Thank you and this is for all you all! So who or what is a Warrior-Genius….

  • A Warrior-Genius builds community and helps others shine when they need it the most.
  • A Warrior-Genius flips adversity on its ass to face a challenge dead in the eye.
  • A Warrior-Genius is a little bit of gangster and a whole lotta swagga.
  • A Warrior-Genius embraces their personal intelligence with courageous grit.
  • A Warrior-Genius matches their wisdom with BIG ASS open heart.
  • A Warrior-Genius is a fighter but knows they can’t fight alone.
  • A Warrior-Genius knows that they did not get to where they are alone and therefore honor everyone who’s been apart of their journey.
  • A Warrior-Genius is YOU!

Use the hashtag #WarriorGenius for pictures and status’s that embrace what YOU think a Warrior-Genius is. Use the #WarriorGenius hashtag to inspire each other to shine! Use #WarriorGenius to show your own personal sense of grit, swag, support, brilliance, wisdom, vulnerability and anything else your badass soul desires.

For example:

“The #WarriorGenius thing I did today was give myself radical self-care today.”

“#WarriorGenius getting my long run in.”

“Shout out and much love to all my #WarriorGenius peeps.”

“Crushing my bike workout tonight #WarriorGenius”

Each week until Honu 70.3. I will pick one #WarriorGenius post and regram to show the strength of our community! The lucky #WarriorGenius will also get a DAM FAST swim cap!
“Whatever you are physically…male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy–all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. All those other things, they are the glass that contains the lamp, but you are the light inside.” –Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel
