Are you good at living in the moment? Me? 🙋🏻♀️
Solid no. I have to make myself, straight up talk myself off the proverbial edge, give anxiety a snack and tell it to get lost in the desert, then walk away. Steady does it.
Today, I caught myself, several times; half panicked about ...... July.
I’m trying not to panic about summer being half gone and my kids going back to school in one month. It's fine. BE IN THE MOMENT, B!!! The glass is half full!!! 💪🏻
YOU CAN DO THIS; Summer is here. You are in the middle of it all. Breathe. ♥️
So, if you are struggling, take the snack away from anxiety (STOP FEEDING IT) and walk away from panic. You can embrace the moment now.
Fear of the future 🏙 I have been there. I love living in Texas, but I was not excited about moving here at first. I love Tennessee and Florida. I wanted to stay on the east coast. I wanted to be close to family and friends. But God led me to Texas, and I would not trade the memories for anything. I’ve made some amazing friends from church and work. I’ve also realized how many stereotypes I had of Texas. Being far from everything I knew helped me lean on God. It also pushed me to meet new people. The future can be scary, but just know Jesus is with you no matter where you are or what you may face 💗
Just texting the group chat asking what everyone wants from the bakery! 🤔😂 Hmm...Patty or pastry?
Driving past Devon House so often, I always forget how much the historical site has to offer!
Apart from it's beautiful grounds, there are various boutiques and restaurants all over!
Plus, it's always nice to stop by for a bit of their infamous ice cream or patties! 🍦
Who's a foodie? Comment below your favourite pastry! 👅🥐 I loveeee a good croissant!
Star in stripes 🇺🇸🎆 I went the extra mile wearing a matching scrunchie and I think that deserves a CFDA Fashion Awards nomination.
I’d rather play in the mountains on a Monday.
It’s no secret I’m missing Mexico City 💗 🇲🇽 🍃
“If you see something that moves you, and then snap it, you keep a moment.”
— Linda McCartney
What’s better than rummaging through a box of old photos? Reminiscing about the memories attached to the images and getting to relive those moments. It’s what I love most about being a photographer. Preserving our most precious moments in time. It is a gift. And an absolute privilege. I don’t need to fly or time travel. Photography is my super power.
What’s your super power and how do you use it for good? 💕

I sat on the edge of the lake under the trees feeling the breeze across my face. I held onto Jeff’s ashes and let them go one by one, with the wind, becoming one with the earth. He shall dance in Stockholm. I felt his presence, I heard his laugh, and could remember the moments we shared. Our little infinity of the world we shared before he left. It will always be too soon, but it will not be too little. You were larger than life, your energy, your smile, you will always be written on pieces of my heart. I let a piece of you go, but gained another memory with you. Another piece of you that is brought to the earth. I love you, Jeff, I miss you. xx #memory #trusttheprocess #liveyourbestlife #loveyourfriends #iamgrateful #traveldiaries #peacefulwarrior #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #selflove #journey #thetravelwomen #life #adventure #happiness #breathe #sidewalkerdaily #explorerbabes #citizenfemme #shetravels #girlsthatwander #inspiringwanderers #travelmore #truth #chaseyourdreams #motivation #girldiscoverers #magic

Пожалуй, первое серьёзное новоселье - это то, которое полностью на твои деньги. .
Такие большие маленькие шаги во взрослую жизнь - это повод для гордости. А гордость - самый лучший мотиватор. 💛
Я удивилась, узнав, что многие студенты не работают. Почему-то думала, что работают все. .
Ещё больше удивилась тому, что уже почти полгода живу тут чисто на свою зарплату. А теперь ещё и в квартирке, оплаченной самостоятельно. Да, это норма. Да, в этом нет ничего необычного - так и должно быть. Но для меня это важно и это тот шаг, важность которого для меня шкалит. Ведь мне всегда казалось, что я менее самостоятельная, чем большинство, но, поспрашивав других, поняла, что не менее. А много где и более. .
Праздновали с @ksenfo
новоселье сидром и бананами на лавке перед окном моей светлой прохладной комнатки, где так красиво по утру падает тень от дерева на стол. Во взрослую жизнь лучше раньше, чем позже - но потом сложнее. Поняла по себе. Просто приятно, что со всеми затратами на билет (380£)✈, посылки (более 200£)📫, портфолио (даже не буду считать)🎨, транспорт (около 100£/месяц)🚇 и лимитом в 20 рабочих часов в неделю до недавнего времени, удалось сделать такую маленькую и классную инвестицию. .
Через пару лет это будет рутиной и нормой из норм, а пока я радуюсь тому, что, будучи во многом ещё маленькой, взяла и организовала такую штуку.
С новосельем, пусть и кратковременным, меня. 🏡

Can you see how many people are over there? This beach was so crowded, but luckily I found a little piece of heaven all to myself 😉😍

“Take a break and come back stronger”
These seven words strung together through the microphone in my workout class this morning stayed with me well beyond the walls of the studio today. I was about 40 minutes into the class, sweat dotted along my cheekbones, breathless, cursing myself for the copious amounts of wine and carbohydrates I consumed all weekend. I had nothing left in the tank, yet I forcefully told my body to continue doing the sit-ups everyone around me was executing with such grace.
“Take a break and come back stronger” she said, as if speaking directly to me. I listened, and took a few moments to reset. It wasn't until I began again that I realized how much I had sacrificed proper form in order to continue haphazardly.
These seven words and the weight they carry can be applied to so many things in our lives. Careers, relationships, side hustles, work-out regimes. When we take breaks, not only do we get more clarity and realignment, but our eyes are opened to the intersections where we may have veered off course.
I know for me, breaks allow me to reintroduce myself to my vision, one that can sometimes be clouded by comparison, industry standards, internal and external expectations or the comfort zone.
Here is a little monday reminder that not only is it okay to take a break, but that you will be stronger because of it. That it is not a detriment but a benefit.
Take a break and come back stronger (buuuttttt maybe don’t spend that break overdoing it on the sourdough and syrah like I did, or you’re in for a rude awakening 😳😜)
Fière des bleus! 🇫🇷🇫🇷🇫🇷 félicitations à l’équipe française pour gagner la coupe du monde! (Hopefully this is grammatically correct pls lmk 🙈) throwback to when I was in Paris in February, one of my favorite trips!! #IsabelinEurope
Also, I started watching greenhouse academy on Netflix, and here’s a related riddle: three of us go to sleep in Amsterdam, and wake up in Paris. What are we?
Such a wonderful weekend with this beautiful surprise! Thank you @desi.sides
for making it possible 💕 Nothing like a little sister time to make the heart feel better😊
I wasn't having a harsh time at cooking class, 'cause I love to feed people. Here I even managed a dessert I found to be decent (some kinda coconut balls filled with sugar, don't remember the name tho) - still, salty wins. I'll empty a bag of chips in 10 minutes🥂 #indonesia #cookingclass #foodislove
Insane views on the way to Everest Base Camp! More on my blog about the amazing company we went with called @visithimalayatreks
(link in bio to read). On another note, today I found out my blog has reached 1 million views. I can’t believe my little blog has been viewed over 1 million times 🤭 I’m so happy that I’ve inspired and helped people with my journey of travel and living in Australia, and I’ll continue to hopefully do so by producing more content for you all. Thank you for tuning in 🙏🏻❤️
Jumping into the week like 🧚🏻♀️
What a wonderful mountain
It’s one thing to see the picture, it’s another to be out there and see it and feel it and play in it and love it
After climbing a volcano 15 miles, 8000 ft high with 3000 ft gain, making 3 snow angels, sledding down the mountain, getting lost, finding the way back, not getting eaten by bears, and over one hundred mosquito bites later, I’m ready for ice cream and to do it again.
:::: just a girl who decided to go for it.💗
Going on a new adventure!
Follow my snap (pomagranade) for fun photos!
Not a selfie person, but here’s an old one I found of me hiking around some water and mountains.
Ready for a new adventure
