I hate political debates! But seeing that I am not yet able to vote, I’ll use this as my platform to stand with my trans brothers and sisters!! It hurts my heart to see such hate and discrimination coming from the White House! It hurts my heart to see people turning a blind eye. Basic human rights are potentially being ripped away from the trans community for no reason other than hate and ignorance! I’m so sad and so disappointed in where this country is headed! I hope this is a wake up call for those able to vote to make a difference but CHOOSE not to. Let’s hope “they” don’t rip away something personal to you. Coz to me this is more than a discrimination against the trans community, this is so personal to me as an immigrant in this country! #letsmakeachange #bethechangeyouwanttosee #protecttranslives #protecthumanrights #votevotevote #bekind #behumble #beheard #loveislove #standupforyourbeliefs #togetherwecanmakeachange
I can't say enough how true this is. I spent so many years afraid of everyone and what they thought about me. Walking down the street even became scary. If someone glanced at me I automatically assumed they we're thinking horrible things about me. I was never good enough for the people around me and that included my husband. Over the past year I have been on a soul searching journey. Discovering who I truly am and what impact I want to have on this world. I have always loved helping other people which meant helping myself was left behind. I started going to therapy, listening to podcasts and reading every self help book I could find. I have learned so many wonderful things about myself and just how amazing I truly am just the way I am. I hope to inspire others to see their true worth and beauty. Stop hiding and go into the world and be you! I am finally living the life I dreamed. I'm working on some goals/projects so that I can help other woman and men feel their best. Its not about how my body looks anymore. Its so much more than that! I love me for me.

Feeling very humbled and blessed in the last while. I was feeling super down and defeated and my attitude has been absolute shit so I finally decided to take the bull by the horns and take back some semblance of control. I have switched things up at the gym, which has been fun AND challenging but most importantly, I’ve started addressing some of my nagging heath issues and slowly, reallllll slowly, I have noticed positive changes and I am so freaking happy! Sometimes life throws us curveballs and we have to find new ways to adapt. I believe we all get stagnant if we don't change things up now and again. If we aren't challenging ourselves, we aren't growing as individuals. ❤️
Growth is painful and change is painful. But nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don't belong.
Every day is a new beginning and an opportunity to be a better version of ourselves, don't you think? So tell me, what have you got to lose? You got this! 💗

There is always triumph when you are ready to embrace the pain within all positive change. On the other side lies liberation from this pain and a brighter future that can look very different from the one you are currently living, for your alternative can return you nothing but the constant nagging of regret, for not taking a path when it was offered towards a better destination.

Who knew making applesauce was so easy 🤷🏻♀️ new recipe ✅
Be the change you want to see! ❤️
I‘m Denise and my favorite color is „red with white dots“. 😀 You should see my sweet student‘s faces when I tell them that. 😄❤️ First they are a little confused and then they start smiling. In my life (and my classroom is an important part of it) there is so much more between black and white. In my life, there is no room for hate, for intolerance or bullying. I embrace diversity and I’m loving and living it wherever I go. Last week a usually very shy student told me that she liked my favorite color a lot and that her favorite color is glitter. You could tell, that she was almost holding her breath for a second until she saw that I loved it. 😍! Why would it not be ok to have glitter as your favorite color?! Life is way too short to live your dreams later. Live them now and dare to be the change you want to see! 💚
Our son‘s favorite color is rainbow since he can talk and that describes his personality in such a wonderful way. 🤗🌈
What is your favorite color? .
Happy Monday, everyone - from California with Love and Sunshine! ☀️

Last week I attended Success Squared in Sydney, an event run by and for next level entrepreneurs 🤗
Some of you have asked me for an event summary, so in this week’s blog post I’ve highlighted key learnings from @garyvee
and other successful entrepreneurs who presented on the day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I hope you enjoy! Direct link in bio ✨
and I founded @clear.life
we did it with a passion for health and wellness, with an eye towards being conscious consumers and making choices that were kinder to the environment 🌱. But a side bonus of this groovy business is that we get to connect with awesome people, who are doing amazing things. Who knew?! 🤷♀️ I’m constantly floored by the brilliance, intention, and sheer tenacity of the people we meet.
We’ve just brought a new brand into the marketplace, Etymologie, and I love love love the product, the ethos, and that it’s a Canadian company. 🇨🇦 #entrepreneurlife #greenbeautyblogger #sustainableliving #consciousconsumer #bethechangeyouwanttosee
In this world of such division, hatred, and selfish intentions we forget that simply and genuinely loving all others and that our actions should reflect that is the key to peace. Compassion, generosity, and lovingkindness, all of which must be given without expectation of reciprocity or reward, are the true outpouring of joy into others. All else or lack of these is pouring ones own suffering into the world around you. #bethechangeyouwanttosee #maninthemirror
I won’t tell you how to vote, but if you haven’t already, I will strongly suggest you get yourself informed on the issues and MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD! SugarPunch.co🍹
-294 of 365 Days of Random Acts of Kindness. After a kid was scolded by the conductor on the train for bringing his bike during rush hour, I approached him and let him know I was on his side. It was so cold and there was plenty of space. I told him not to let it bother him. He seemed to appreciate the words and we were both laughing when we parted. I made time for a cashier to vent about a previous customer giving her a hard time, I offered a tic-tac to a friend, I helped an older woman jump her car with my cables, and today a woman was walking downtown not knowing her backpack was open. I tapped her shoulder when she didn’t hear me and she jumped. I felt so bad but she said thank you! Happy Monday!!!!💕#randomactofkindness #randomactsofkindness #thankful #sharethelove #bethechangeyouwanttosee #rak #grateful #behappy #kindnessmatters #haveaheart

if you don’t have your health, you don’t truly have anything.
I was that woman who always seemed to be one foot in one foot out on my commitment to my health. Because I believed that I had no control over what would eventually be my reality due to having MS (wheelchair or bed bound).
When I had my first son at the age of 40, I knew that I needed to go all in on my health. How was I going to be an active participant in his life if I was willing myself right into that wheelchair. After all, what you believe you achieve, right?
So yes...I I had to change not only my physical health, but my mental as well. It seems like they both go hand 🖐🏽 in hand 🖐🏽.
What is holding you back from becoming the best version of yourself? How are you going to let go of those limiting beliefs and get both feet all in? Ready to make the shift with me? I have 8 spots left for my next accountability group. It’s all about mindset, nutrition, a fun program that works, and support!! Comment below “I’m ready” and I will get back to you!!

**Flash Back to 2015**
Looking back at this picture makes me smile so freakin hard and brings tears to my eyes!! 2015 was apart my single mom phase and Davíd loved (as you can tell my his expression) doing yoga with his momma! The memories with these 2 during that time are beautiful and tough all at once. We made it!!!!
Cherishing every moment! Love and be loved!!!
💙 Majestic lake Atitlan, mystical, beautiful, wild.
✝️The lake Atitlan has 12 towns around it. Representing the 12 disciples of Jesus.
🌋 It has 3 volcanoes around it too, San Pedro, Toliman and Atitlan.

Here is an Idea. What if for just 1 week all we focused on is LOve. Only post about love,talk about Love, and focus on solutions. I know it’s painful, what’s happening globally. But what we focus on is what we get more of. I will start. I would LOve it if everyone I know under the age of 40 would register to Vote!! No you go! Tomorrow I will have something else to LOVe.
When you need to get a workout done, but all the boys want is to be held, you use them as weights 👌🏻
The power of feeling connected. .
When you think you are making the right decision and then all of a sudden something clicks. The energy shifts. .
Perspective becomes more clear than ever. You realize that the issue was actually You. Not the environment. .
Don’t underestimate the value of a good talk. 👯♀️
Don’t make decisions when you are emotional or tired. 😴 😭 .
Don’t discount the power you have to solve your own problems. 🤔 .
Set your goal. Make your plan. Connect with people who also get it. Put your head down and work your ass off to get it. Don’t follow the shiny objects. The power is in you. ✍️ 📓 📆
Just finished #peoplelikeme
This book took me on a rollercoaster ride, it transported me back to my childhood, to Knockmore where I grew up, KCS where I went to school and Sr Angela¹s choir. Fr Liam who was an advocate for inclusion and stability. Here I was in paradise (a secluded beach in Ibiza) living a very privileged life reading about deprivation, social injustice, inequality and a community that has been ransacked by a government and it¹s policies. The stories are real and told in a very articulate way, kudos to you Lynn. This book made me reconnect with my own scars, my own trauma, my own pain. Just because my scars are invisible doesn't mean they don¹t exist. Ironically I only experienced stigma, criticism, judgement when I
moved away from Tallaght. If a person isn¹t coping with whatever
circumstance is happening in their life it¹s wrong to criticize, shame or
pass judgement on them. You simply add to their pain and their trauma.
What I learned from Lynns book is that parents damage children but
children damage parents too. We are all human. In being human we are all
imperfect, we are all flawed. Only when we accept each others
imperfections and flaws can we move on and begin to heal. My healing began when I moved back to Tallaght, in doing so I experienced understanding, compassion and love which was the catalyst to my healing. Senlynnruane like many other successful people from Tallaght are testament to what happens when you give us an opportunity - The results are exponential! bula bus, buy this book, read it and then examine your social conscience.In my instance I feel blessed and filled with gratitude for my history, my story. Every scar, every trauma made me who I am today and for that I am
eternally grateful. #createalifeoffreedom #lovetallaght
