Handstand on the boardwalk
My girlfriend does a handstand every day and has not missed a day in over 1,675 days. This day she was somewhat demoted for being too successful in her career and she found solace in her daily handstand during a late afternoon handstand. The sky was bright yet the clouds shed some grey and represented the torn emotion she was feeling this day.
She says getting her heart above her head daily keeps her focused on the next day ahead. She was very sad but her spirits lifted after performing such a solid handstand with the ocean in the background.
