Badassery

 
I have to laugh at this word. 
The urban dictionary defines badassery as :
 
Engaging in seemingly impossible activities and achieving success in a manner that renders all onlookers completely awestruck. 
 
Another definition has this word as:
 
Actions or characteristics regarded as formidably impressive.
 
I recently posted on Instagram about my run in 26 mph winds and used this term.  I must have heard it from another fellow instagrammer or blogger, but nonetheless after posting it I laughed out loud!  What an absurd word!  And, how hilarious at the same time.  
 
After busting my ass out of my comfort zone at 8:24/mile I did feel like a bad ass and this term fit nicely! 
 
Oftentimes, we are led to believe that it's not ok to post about our recent work-out or something that makes us feel like a bad-ass.  I say post on people!  Do whatever it takes to make yourself feel good.  If it makes you feel good, keep doing it.  Chances are you're inspiring others to do the same. It might just be that one post that gets just ONE person off their butt to be more active. 
 
I know that I personally look to my friends on social media for daily inspiration.  Post on my peeps!!  Keep that badassery coming!! It just makes me want to be that much more bad ass!
 
Have a great Wednesday!
