Death is not the biggest fear we have; our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive—the risk to be alive and express who we really are. #donmiguelruiz Take the risk and let yourself be vulnerable 💋@rheavega #rheasjourney
Recently been struggling to remember who I am besides being ‘just’ a mom. Once you have a kid you pour your entire existence into them and kinda forget that you are a person too and you need love and attention as well. It’s tough to leave him for a quick run to target alone but once I’m out it feels good. Then the mom guilt creeps in. Motherhood. So complicated 😂😂 I love being his mom though more than...dare I say my alone time at target. Lol To be fair he loves @target as much as his momma plus I have a partner in crime now so it’s all good. 🤣🤣😎🤑 #sahm #babyboy #smile #target #targetislife #HisSmileIsWorthIt #momlife #HeIsAsleepNowAndIMissHim #findingmyself #bathtime #blessed
I loved this display at Ringling Circus Museum so much. Ever since I was just a little bean, I was in love with the magic of performance- especially the circus. Everyone was deliriously, maddeningly passionate about what they did there. They were alive. Living art. It was fantastical and tangible. Now that I’m living in Florida after years of obsessing over Cirque du Soleil and Ringling... I realize that I can still learn some of those things. I don’t want to perform, but I’ve always dreamed of doing aerial silks... and I’ve found gyms that teach here. I might actually really truly do this... and find a little more of this menagerie locked away in myself. ✨💫 #nationalmuseumday #ringling #ringlingcircus #tiger #menagerie #findingmyself #nevergrowoutofyourdreams #florida #thepursuitofhappiness #perfectdays #magic #magicisreal #amazing #inlovewithlife #newexperiences #lifeisgood #livingart #yellow #circus

Waiting - Learning #findingmyself #readingtime
It taken me a long time to get to this point! Where I am truly happy with who I am! It taken me moving to an amazing town, meeting some amazing people and find who I am again! I will never let anyone make me feel differently! #happiness #findingmyself #startedover #chooseyou #imchanging
To go out with the setting sun on an empty beach is to truly embrace your solitude. ... #findingmyself
09.22.18 Good Evening! Here are some late night rambling on my adoption thoughts/experiences. Also, my baby pic attached to my adoption paperwork folder #cheekychompers Identity is such an odd notion to define as a #transracial #adoptee . I've never defined myself as an adoptee. I'm a woman. I'm from St. Louis. I'm from a large family. I'm a student here or an employee there, etc. I'm redefining myself yet again. Within the last few years I've become a homeowner, a mother, store manager, mother of two, and countless other things that have changed. One thing is always the same. I'm #Korean . Besides looking the part I have no idea what that means. For many many years I never addressed that part of me. Now I feel like I'm jumping head first into this massive cistern of knowledge of what could've been my alternate life. Learning as much as possible about Korea, Korean culture (Happy Chuseok!), and language. If I were to define myself right now it would be: #Mother #Wife #Adoptee #StLouisan #AnimaLover and #Exhuasted 😌 So, adoptee has made it into the top three! For a long time it wasn't even on my list. But, Korean still isn't on there. I don't think I really feel Korean. If I were to put Korean up there it would be a lie. Because even through all of this, I still feel like a little white girl in an Asian body 💁🏻‍♀️I can't be defined as Caucasian beyond living in the culture from 9 months old till now. I can't be defined as Korean beyond my looks. I hope you enjoyed my baby pic 👶🏻 #cheekstospare #adopteevoices #adoptionjourney #KoreanAmerican #Koreanadoptee #birthfamilysearch #findingmyculture #findingmyroots #findingmyself #alwayschangin #growingupadopted #definingonesself
For some reason this spoke to me so I stole it.... 🤙🤙 She craves love from deep down in every part of her... however, she is also tired of falling for actors, men who are emotional salesman selling good promises to win from her everything but her heart...🤙🤙#igotthis #findingmyself #imgonnabeok #illbestrongeripromise #ilovemesomeme
Finding this beautiful hand beaded suit from Columbia was a fun highlight from our trip! (I think quite possibly that there was some Columbian confidence stitched into it!) It’s my favorite article of clothing I own. It’s hard to post this but I’m proud of the hard work I’ve put in over the last three years. I may have a few soft spots, some cellulite, and not as toned as I was at the beginning of the year, but I’m happy, healthy, and so in love with this life I’ve been given! #80poundsgone #neverfeltbetterinmyskin #husbandpickeditout #oceandrivefind #beachhair #miamibeach #alltheconfidenceintheworld #findingmyself #watchmego #southbeach #vacation2018
In the process of find my real face which I didn't know still #findingmyself #lookingupme
Are you a worker or a watcher 🤔 - Most would say they’re a worker when in reality they’re just watchers. We all want the glory of what comes with the hard work just not a lot are willing to do the work. This isn’t always the physical work either. It’s the mental work that goes into looking at where you are and where you want to go in this life and figuring out a path to get from point A to point B. We’re all too worried what others are thinking, what they will say if you start this new chapter in your life, so instead we keep rereading the same chapter over and over - I’m dealing with this really hard right now. Trying to write a new chapter in my book while seeing all the fakeness around and feeling a big force of judgement not only towards others but towards myself. I’ve always been a worker, that’s what allowed me to do what I’m doing right now, but being in a new time of “watching” I’m seeing I don’t like a lot that I see. Learning to try and let go of many expectations and let everything just be. It just really gets to me when so many people are saying they’re “workers” when they’re just “watching” (metaphorically this is for when people are saying they’re something they’re not and in this technological world tricking people around them in believing it) - I know this only catches up with people in the end but it hurts to see so many other people look up to certain people and then in return judging themselves as in a worse place with their life when in reality if we took the curtains away people would see how messed up we all are - I’ve been told by many I should be some type of “life coach” but this just seems stupid to me as who can really tell others how to live their life when these “coaches” are figuring things out about life just as much as everyone else. YES, I love helping people. YES, we all need people to talk to. But saying you’re a “coach on life” when we’re constantly figuring things out seems hard for me to grasp. I would really love some perspective change on this 👇👇👇 as I definitely would love to help more people in the future but find it hard ever calling myself a “life coach.” - Maybe I’ll be a Perspective Shifter 🤷‍♂️ - Please chat 👇
Everything I do is for her. She is my inspiration and my motivation. She is my purpose in life. She makes me BETTER!

Guess who is going to Palmy Fringe? Yup... my dress! You can see me wearing it there on 6th of Oct, 7pm singing and being hilarious. You should come along! #julzandthedress #weddingdress #weddingshow #comedy #comedian #comedyshow #fringefestival #soloshow #palmy #divorce #single #findingmyself #havingfun #julzontour
Its funny.. i weigh 97kg today. Thats a loss of 23kg so far (over 2years). I feel amazing and so much more confident and attractive. But not that long ago (4 years) i weighed 97kg. And i felt enormous. Ugly. I thought i looked so much bigger then i did. I got up to 120kg. Now that i have been that big, it has completely changed my perspective on myself as i lose weight. Sometimes you have to look back, to realise how far you've come. #weightlossjourney #2yearswork #moretogo #23kgloss #23kg #97kg #was120kg #smallgoals #goals #5kgatatime #comeon95kg #blueeyes #makeup #lips #pout #darkpurplehair #looksbrown #brunette #confident #feelinggood #findingmyself #beyou #youarebeautiful #pretty #happy
F*CK Average!!! My new @dissidentgymwear tank says it's best 😁 I have had an incredibly challenging year and at times I allowed my circumstances to break me, to kill my spirit. And then I found @the_camp_jacksonville and piece by piece, I found myself again. I am still fighting every single day to put myself back together. But I am so damn proud of what I have accomplished and FOREVER grateful to any and everyone that has helped me along the way. Fitness is my passion. This is no longer a journey for me, it is my lifestyle. And I will choose to love and respect myself a little more each day. . . #saturday #motivation #fitnessavedme #fitspo #fitstagram #fitlife #lifestyle #onedayatatime #keepgoing #findingmyself #lovethelifeyoulive #instafood #instafit #inspiration #igfitness #instagirls #fitgirls #girlsthatlift #girlswholift #gymlife #gymmotivation #gymrat #gymjunkie #fitfam #fitfreak #AFF #fitfriends #dedication #commitment #committobefit @sambakhtiar
I am not always available and my energy is more important to me than yours. #notaccessible #notalwaysavailable #noisacompletesentence #mychoice #thewaywithin #findingmyself
This is a special place for me. I have taken my friends here in a celebration. I have been here to baptize a friend in her path to healing. I have also cried here. I have begged God to bring me death. And I have sat here in silence and awe of the peace and grace that resides here. I am this pool. For I carry the joy, healing, and sorrow I have lived in this place. . . . . . . . . . . #heartache #pain #brokenheart #depression #darkdays #nooneknows #fewcare #iminthisforme #findbeauty #findingmyself #hope #meditation #ihateit #ready #thisisonlythebegining #seeksanctuary
I have no idea who I am or what I like. But I made a decision on my own today and it felt good. It was just lunch with my kids, but one of them asked me if I asked their dad. I want to know what I like, I want to do things I enjoy. __ #whoami #howdidigethere #wheredidwegowrong #whoknows #lostmyself #foryou #doyouevencare #selfish #lovedoesnthurt #findingmyself #makingdecisionsforme
Hanging with one of my favourite dudes for a #chill Saturday night! What are you up too? Do you actually honour what you want to do during the time that is “yours”?! Tell me how?! Or tell me what you would rather be doing!! #saturdaynight #chillsaturdaynight #saturdaynightwiththeguys #nightin #findingmyself #findingmyzen
Let me preface this with the fact that I did not workout today. I feel like this is an important phrase to remember. As of lately I haven't been a very good wife. This afternoon I decided to drive out to the husbands house he is currently flipping and surprise him and to see his progress. I haven't been supportive on his journey. Not because I don't care, but I don't have a reason why. We have been married so long sometimes, at least for me, it's easy to to forget to show that I care. Anyway, after getting home I spent the evening catching up on housework, grocery shopping and food prepping . I wanted to workout today. It didn't happen and I started to get mad about it. Then I took a step back and thought of this phrase. I spent my day doing things to contribute to this journey I'm on. I gave my husband a little support and I gave my meals prepped for the upcoming week. Every day isn't going to be perfect. But every day is a reason to show up and do SOMETHING toward your goal.
Being a parent I can safely say is the biggest thing in my life that has stretched me way outside of my comfort zone. I made some decisions about how I would parent based on so many things but mostly I wanted my babes to know that they were going to grow up in a home where they could be themselves AND that success takes many forms. There is no “right” way to succeed. This has been so hard because I wasn’t raised like that. In my childhood home you did things the way you were told and you definitely didn’t cry about it. The tapes that play in my head say there is a certain way, but I know now that is fear talking and FEAR IS A LIAR. Becoming the mama that they need is full of attempts that fail and beautiful moments where I see my kids essence shine through. I cry when I let them down and their hearts have been crafted with forgiveness which I am so grateful for. This season in my life is so hardcore. Like many mamas I am not sure who I am without these sweet souls. It’s an uncomfortable blend of holding on and letting go, calmness and worry and lots of deep breathing and oils. Y’all they aren’t even teenagers yet😳
I don’t take a lot of pictures of myself and I guess that’s because I’m always paying more attention to the things I love around me, and I would prefer to share on those things. 🌱 Yesterday was windy with a slight chill wrapping itself around me. It was my last day at my office job and I had been feeling conflicted about it. Garden strolls help me decompress and quiet my mind, and gives me something to focus on other than myself. (I think it’s very important that everyone have an outlet like that.) My chickens were tracing the fence line to the garden, my dogs were flying around the chicken coop after each other, I was collecting tomatoes and checking the status of other garden goodies, and when I looked up as cold drops of rain started to fall, a big gust of wind washed over the front of me as I took in the simple beauty of everything we have💚 I felt blessed, whole, overwhelming love, strong, grateful for a new and strange adventure that I am making for myself, and I felt like I was enough. I felt good - at peace. So, this is me. A tattooed young woman who has an obsession with plants (and farm birds🤷🏻‍♀️), who felt a little lost, who can be a little unconventional sometimes, but someone who is brave and creative enough to try something new and able to shake myself and say, “Who says you CAN’T do that?” Because I’ve proven so many times before that I CAN. #selflove #selfappreciation #findingmyself #newadventures #blessed #grateful #support #youonlyliveonce #unconventional #inspired #dowhatyoulove #youcan #youareenough #iamenough #dowhatyoulove #betheinspiration #fireyourboss #urbangarden #urbanchickens #stopdoubtingyourself #strongwoman #tattoosofinstagram #girlswithtattoos #gardenlife #plantvibes #allthefeels
Do you have a place in your home that just reflects you wholly? None of this has been purposely set up... and as I’m laying on my yoga mat I’m looking at this area thinking wow... this is literally a reflection of my life in 3 feet of space. Books, fairies, plants, wine box, my dads sailor man and a coffee cup from Honduras. The books alone reflect my personality to a T starting at the top with My Utmost For His Highest and the Bible, the middle shelves are layered with books of life journeys, (Eat, Pray, Love...Reflections From A Mother’s Heart) and ending at the bottom with my love for poetry, fantasy and quirky writers. This is right next to my dining room table where a very loved and used piano also lives. None of this goes together and it’s kind of a hodgepodge but it’s me. Welcome to my space, welcome home. #yoga #yogaeveryday #readbooks #ilovebooks #plants #fairies #wine #winelover #findingmyself #coffee #mysisterlivesinhonduras

sorry for being inactive, mrs. kipling died a couple weeks ago and it’s been hard😔 but I’m back and spreading axe awareness! axes are very dangerous and is sadly what killed mrs. kipling. i was having a hard time picking up axes again since axe dancing is my favorite sport, but these old pals helped me get right back into my habits!❤️ #kurryking #indiangod #rip #axing #axes #findingmyself

As a hello to my new followers and as a thank you to @geeketo for the tag, here's another set of 15 things about me: 1. I take all my own photos for my account. I'm sure a professional would have told me I had hay on my leg before letting me take this shot 😂 2. Fall is the BEST TIME OF THE YEAR. #spoopy 3. I'm a second year law student - I still have no idea what I'm doing, and No I can't give you legal advice 4. BOOTS. IT'S BOOTS SEASON. FAVE. 5. I love most things geeky. Anime, video games, all the fandoms 6. I have an irrational fear of Samara from The Ring, but it's gotten better in the last few years? A little? 7. I still struggle erry day with body positivity and not giving in to all of my negative mental health and self talk. Always a work in progress 8. I LOATHE the sound of flies buzzing. Drives me INSANE. 9. My big career goal is to open an at-risk youth shelter and work one on one with those people who come through. I'm in law school to gain legal knowledge about family and juvenile law so that I can better inform the residents of their rights and help them with whatever issues they may be having. Once I earn my JD, I plan on getting my MA in Social Work. 10. I LOVE listening to people and motivating them to be their best self. I struggle with small talk, so if you've ever gotten a message from me that seemed way too personal I deeply apologize 😅 11. Whenever I take one of those little personality tests to see what element you are, I always get air. I've wanted to be fire my whole life. But air is where I sit. 12. Definitely a fire type Pokemon trainer though. Actually realistically my team is always pretty well rounded, but if I was a gym leader, that'd be my thing. But Luxray is my favorite so go figure I DON'T MAKE SENSE EVER. IT'S FINE. 13. Pineapple DOES go on pizza and I will fight about this. I was an assistant manager of a pizza restaurant for YEARS I have tried ALL THE KINDS of pizza and it's a delicious thing always. 14. I usually sleep with the lights on. I pass out doing homework or I'm just too lazy to get up to turn them off. Whoops 15. I'm excited af to get absolutely SHREDDED 💪 with my second round of LIIFT4 starting Oct 1!

This is the unhappiness I don’t post. I went a year and a half before this. Nothing to be proud of as I should have kept going. Here’s to not a “new” me but hopefully and I’m praying a better me. #prayingforstrength #sobriety #findingmyself
