Today’s prompt for #joyschooliscoming
is “what is your most joyful memory?”. Hands down this is mine - marrying my very best pal in front of all of our most favourite people. It was a day full of so much love, joy and laughter, and I can’t remember ever smiling as much as I did that weekend. What’s your most joyful memory? I’d love to hear! ✨
New Habits to Try Today To Take More Care Of Yourself 1 Detox from Technology: How many times have you laid in bed late at night on your iPad or phone reading emails or checking social media? When you go to bed, switch off your phone or iPad or put it into airplane mode. First thing in a morning, for the first hour, no screens. Instead spend some time enjoying breakfast, planning your day and generally devoting time to you and your plans.
2 Meditation: If you don’t do meditation, I highly recommend you spare some time to do it, even if for only 10 minutes. It’s an emotional experience. I use an app on my phone called Calm. However just sitting with your eyes closed and listening to easy music can achieve the same thing. Try it, you will be amazed how calm you feel afterwards.
3 Keeping a Journal: Not everyone likes to write things down but there is a lot of power putting things down on paper. Personally, I have always found it therapeutic to write things down. You can track what you write and see if you have negative or positive thoughts. It is a bit like having a diary when you were a teenager, and no one could read it but you.
4 Spa Time: You can have a wonderful relaxing time in your bathroom away from everyone. Get that face mask on, have a hot bath with candles around and meditate while relaxing.
5 Look after your energy: Make sure you are eating healthy foods. Plenty of fresh, nutritious foods that give you energy. Go for a brisk walk every day in the fresh air and get away from screens. If you want, you could join a yoga class or Pilates. Personally, I love to walk my dogs.
6 Calming and re–energising – I have two really good exercises for this that I share with coaching clients. Email me at email@example.com
and I will share them with you.
The above ideas are simple and not time consuming to put into your life. Self-care is so important for your health and mental well-being. It’s got to be worth it to avoid stress and burnout.
I offer a 20-minute complimentary discovery call and if you want to take advantage of that, go to my calendar at callwithlynda.com and schedule a call with me. Let’s see how I can help you the best.
What a day with this incredible beauty ☽
Note to self: love yourself exactly how you are right this second ❤️#selflove
This is what I like doing besides being a pop star 🤪😂
Day 25 of #may30x30
Are you just as surprised as I am that this is my first cactus printed anything in my wardrobe?! 🌵I can’t believe this is the first cactus to grace my hangers in my wardrobe, and it might not be the last! .
Brandon and I actually went out on a Friday night last night, and as we were strolling, this shirt and the 30% off storewide sign caught my eye in the window. Old and familiar shopaholic habits took over and I went into the store to find it. I tried it on, and minutes later I walked out of the store with it in my hand. During those minutes, I did pause to ask myself if this brand was even ethical—to which Brandon said that I shop ethically enough and that if I really wanted it, I should get it; and so I did. There was a few moments of guilt when I got home (especially since I wasn’t supposed to be shopping this month), but I reminded myself that I’m not perfect; that I’m human (one who really loves cacti); and that I really did love this tee and will (hopefully) wear it loads for Spring/Summer seasons to come. With 5 days left and 6 wildcards left, I felt good to use one of my wildcards on this top. ✌🏻The weather was absolutely beautiful today; and this was the perfect look to enjoy the start to this long weekend. // #pleblife

I’m not obsessed with my hands but I am obsessed with the Salted Caramel Ice Cream from @ledistrict
Brookfield Place is one of my favorite destinations 7 days a week, but especially on a Saturday when I actually have a chance to enjoy what they have to offer as opposed to Mon- Fri when I’m on my way to or from the office or a school. I might even take the ferry back again tomorrow 😝
I love things that slow my rushed mind, draw me into a gentler rhythm of existence, and make me more keenly aware of my surroundings. 💞🌿
Sewing by hand does this for me, making me aware of the attention and care and slowness involved in each tiny stitch, while it all (over time!) creates something lovely & personal... a work intimately known. .
Long walks outside also do this, allowing me to lose myself in the slow, powerful rhythms of wind and growth, sunshine and space. The real, created world, is a wild & alive place, so much greater than my troubles. 🌳🌾🍃
Baking bread from scratch - just something about the kneading, and the waiting to rise, and the ridiculously delicious yeasty smell of goodness. There is a humble holiness embedded in the joy of making & eating my own bread. 🍞🌾💞
And photography? Because it has me looking for the loveliest angle, and waiting for the light... slowing my soul into a watchful stillness. With camera in hand, I am reminded so quickly of, and stand so amazed at, the poignant beauty and sweetness that saturates every corner of even MY messy & crazy life. I don't even have to leave my home to find breath-catching loveliness. 📷💞🍃
Alternate caption: I'm kind of obsessed with breakfast-hour sunshine. 🤗🌅Especially when it also includes flowers. 😂🌹 And I mean c'mon, what's cuter than an empty little toddler's bed, just joyfully abandoned for the smell of pancakes? 🥞🏃♂️💞🌿😂🤗
"I believe the world is incomprehensibly beautiful an endless prospect of magic and wonder." -Ansel Adams⠀
It's photos like these where I am reminded how grateful I am to have had an incredible mentor like @yourbexcellence.
The knowledge she bestowed upon me allowed me to capture this very shot before this little flutter of wonder flew away ✨⠀
🌿🌻Slow living. Desacelerando a vida (Português abaixo) “Slow living is not a return to the
past, the good old days (pre-McDonalds Arcadia), neither is it a form of laziness,
nor a slow-motion version of life. Slow living is a process whereby everyday life – in all its pace and complexity, frisson and routine – is approached with care and attention, subjects attempt to negotiate the different temporalities that they daily experience” by Wendy Parks and Geoffrey Craig
I mean this way we can connect with ourselves and others.
A life with meaning. Purpose. Meanwhile, not consuming products or brands that affect our planet. Refusing to get crazy like society says that we are never good enough. What do u think about it?
Slow living ou desacelerando não é um retorno ao passado nos tempos pré-Mcdonalds, nem preguiça ou um jeito em câmera lenta de viver.
Mas um processo em que vivemos todo cotidiano no ritmo, correria e rotinas com mais atenção e cuidado.
Essa é a definição dos pesquisadores Wendy Parks e Geoffrey Craig no estudo deste movimento no livro “ Slow Living” (2006)
Com carinho e atenção podemos lidar com as diferentes temporalidades experimentadas no dia.
Acredito que dessa forma podemos nos conectar melhor conoscos e com os outros. Com a vida leve e com propósito. Além de consumir produtos e marcas que não afetem a natureza. E aí o que você acha disso?

on the beach with a good book and sweet snacks its where you’ll be able to find me this summer✌🏼 #skinnydippedpartner
i always try to be mindful of when i need rest both mentally and physically, but as we gear up for a season that’s packed with work, social engagements, and pressure to look perfect, now more than ever i want to be more conscious of taking time for myself. to check in and say, “is this serving me?”
because if it’s not a heck yes, then it’s a heck no. and something that is and will alwayssss be a yes is @getskinnydipped
because what’s me-time without chocolate?😉

・・・ Memorial Day mani & Because of the Brave is the perfect set to wear! 🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸💙 I did this mani in 10 minutes at my desk at work 😍
These were the foundation nails for February. For every set sold, Color Street donated $2, and reached our goal of $100,000, to the @garysinisefoundation

my wish is to stay always like this, living quietly in a corner of nature.

Jim took a series of photos of me awhile back, but as an adult I’ve grown into a kind of shyness that I can’t explain so I feel a bit funny sharing them. I feel like I used to be so extroverted, but now I’m more of a homebody who dances in her living room instead of the bar. I sometimes still miss the revelry, but it’s mostly outweighed by how grounding the life we chose to build feels after the party ended (but I promise you the dancing hasn’t). Also, this rainy weather is making me huddle over the stove instead of in the garden, but good food and good company is making the dreary weather feel cozy.
I hope you’re all having a relaxing weekend doing what you love most with those you love most.
A butt grab, a camera shot, and a helluva Saturday night waiting to happen ~ Anywhere with you is the best place to be 💕

What I think about when I see 3 year old Theresa next to 5 year old Theresa
3 year old Theresa barely saw her mom. She barely ever got tucked in by her mom at night; her mom couldn’t pick her up from preschool or go on any field trips...her mom didn’t get to eat breakfast with her in the morning
The differences.... I can’t believe it
Between then and now I went from being a Mom who was barely around (like I don’t even know how much of her third birthday I was around) to being able to be with her at her appointments, her milestones, when she needs me and even when she wishes I’d “just go away😏”
How I went from feeling like we were stuck as a family to envisioning all of the awesome things we are going to get to do, the places we are going to get to go, the experiences we get to have
All because I took a deep breath and focused on what was within my control, take insanely massive action, failed, conquered and everything in between
The time is going to pass anyway, between May 25th 2019 until May 25th 2021. What do you want to see happen between then and now?
Or better question, what WILL you MAKE HAPPEN between then and now? (This is rhetorical to make you think, not a CTA 🙃)
What are your plans this weekend?👇🏻👇🏻
Little baby sharks saw some baby sharks today 🦈🐙
This universe we live in is empowering. There’s nothing like sitting on the porch, drinking coffee, and listening to the birds while working. There’s a sense of calm and peace that comes over me when I’m outdoors. Being surrounded by nature makes me feel at one with universe and like I can do anything I put my mind to. I am so grateful for this porch that allows me to relax, to work, to meditate and become aware of my thoughts, and to reconnect with myself, with those I love, and with the world around me. .
Find a place that allows you to connect with not only yourself but also the world around you. This doesn’t have to be outdoors by any means, but it should be a place that brings you peace, awareness, and allows you to reconnect with yourself. .
Do you have a place you go to reconnect and feel empowered? I’d love to know where! .

“our love can do miracles” [the notebook] [OR maddalena & rocco whenever they aren’t mid-rivalry :)]
These oils truly have changed my life and my mindset✨
I now have: -more confidence
-belief in my myself and my capabilities
-a support system to lean on whenever I’m feeling not my best (physically sick, frustrated, stressed, anxious, overwhelmed, etc)
-this gift that I can share with the world✨
I mean let’s be honest, how selfish would it be of me to find such a powerful, incredible, natural resource that benefits me in all aspects of life, and then just keep it all to myself😳👎🏽 That is why I feel so compelled to share with you all on here💫
I’ve has some amazing conversations with some of you and really enjoy hearing how much these oils/products have impacted your life, your families lives, and those around you✨
So with that being said I have decided to host my own giveaway to help pass these oils on to some of you.
So the next 3 people that use the link in my bio to order their starter kit AND enroll in monthly Essential Rewards will be gifted a special, unique roller just for YOU✨
I will be giving away a roller blend of Young Living essential oils that I will create myself based on your needs, then send it your way so you can begin seeing the magic happen✨
Already a member? Share this post with someone you know (or tag them) and let them achieve the same success you have through Young Living✨
Still not sure? DM me and we can chat so you have the clarity you need moving forward✨ #yleo #veggiesmiles #essentialjoy
The thought of giving, the thought of blessing, or a simple prayer has the power to affect others. This is because our body, reduced to its essential state, is a localized bundle of energy and information in a universe of energy and information. We are localized bundles of consciousness in a conscious universe. The word “consciousness” implies more than just energy and information- it implies energy and information which is alive as thought. Therefore we are bundles of thought in a thinking universe. And thought has the power to transform. -Deepak Chopra
Feeling super grateful to good intentions, genuine connections and a positive mindset🙌🏽 Believe that you can transform your life and you will achieve anything💫🦋🌎🧡 #yayforearth #DeepakChopra #mindfullness #powerofthought #veggiesmiles
Welcome to my happy place💫 surrounded by all the things that bring me joy and keep me grounded✨ Here I sat, plants and crystals all around me, journaling, setting goals and intentions with my essential oils🤗 ready to capture the most thoughtful and poised photo🧐 but then Finn had other plans😂🧡 #veggiesmiles
“Tell me something, are you happy in this modern world?
Or do you need more? Is there something else you’re searching for?”✨ It’s been said that we only have 12years to fix the destruction WE’VE caused before it becomes irreversible devastation🌎 It both breaks my heart as well as fuels my fire to hear about this incredibly short period of time we have... I WILL live a sustainable life. I WILL have faith in humanity. I WILL share what I learn and educate those around me. Because in order to DO BETTER, one must KNOW BETTER🧡💫 #12years #vegan #ourplanet #ourearth #sustainability #yayforearth #veggiesmiles
Soul cleansing in a bottle🔮✨ I created this blend to spritz (can/will also be diffused) before morning meditation🧘🏻♀️✨ Frankincense- grounding, Joy- uplifting, Peace & Calming- relaxation, Valor- confidence, White Angelica- protection🧡✨ Not to mention, the smell is INCREDIBLE🙌🏽✨ I get WAY too excited using my oils to make new, natural creations🤗✨#YLEO #younglivingessentialoils #veggiesmiles
What started my Young Living journey? When we first got our beloved Finnigan 🐶 we had an incident where Finn had gotten ahold of that little sink stopper and was chewing on it; this wouldn’t have been a huge deal had it not just been soaking in a sink full of Pinesol🤦🏻♀️ We immediately handled the situation and he didn’t get too sick that night, but boy did I get freaked out😰. Soon after we learned about how awful scented plugins were for both Finn and us; it was like the universe was trying to tell me something, the products used around our sweet boy needed a serious change... but how? It was then that I got educated on Young Living and the power of the Premium Starter Kit with Thieves🙌🏽 the rest is history🌿 What you see here is me combining my love of essential oils with my new passion of zero-waste living to create some incredible, all natural, cleaning products✨ I reused an old kombucha bottle and an old cleaning spray bottle top to house my household cleaner (can be used on anything; 2 caps of Thieves all purpose cleaner, mixed with a jar of my homemade citrus scrap vinegar (details in my “less waste” highlight), plus a couple extra drops of lemon essential oil if you’re feeling sassy) and I reused an old jelly jar for the bathroom cleaning paste (perfect for scrubbing tubs, sinks, showers, bathrooms, etc; 2 caps of Thieves all purpose cleaner, baking soda, and a few extra drops of lemon essential oil)🌎🧡 for more info on “fragrance” which is in almost all products, check out the Netflix documentary Stink👍🏽 DM me so we chat and I’ll answer all your oily questions; I’d love to help you begin your journey today💫 #YLEO #youngliving #diy #naturalcleaning #veggiesmiles #yayforearth
