Wedding Wednesday with these two newly weds! 🍃⠀
“A happy person is happy, not because everything is right in his life. He is happy because his attitude towards everything in his life is right”
Double tap if you agree!!!!
SHOUT OUT to all those busy people that have a plan for the day & can actually stick to it👏🏼🤣 ... JUST KIDDING... we know that never happens. .
I can’t count the number of times I planned to hit a class at the gym, just to find out I had to stay late at work ❌ Or the times I missed that planned class because the roads were bad in the winter ❌ Or the times i missed that planned class because i didn’t have an extra hour to commute to & from (plus enjoy an hour class)the gym
Friends: this STRESSED me out to the max & I felt so defeated when I let myself down .
Rather than suffering with this feeling multiple days a week➡️ I made a change ⭐️⭐️ .
I chose to [[workout from home]] so i was able to show up for myself, save time & lower my stress 🙏🏼
In the beginning I wasn’t sure how it would go, BUT now i swear by it.
I see better results physically & mentally & can honestly say i would never go back to those old ways ♥️
[[do you struggle with this same sort of stress?]]
One of the things I stopped doing when I started grad school was putting my failures before my successes. I realized when I stopped focusing on areas I needed to improve and other expectations I needed to meet, my success made leaps and bounds.⠀
When I started celebrating my successes rather than picking out my flaws and ways I could improve, I realized that my expectations weren’t realistic. I expected perfection out of myself, in school, in relationships, in my personal life. But perfection isn’t reality nor was it a reality I actually wanted.⠀
My successes increased because I no longer expected perfection of myself. I became okay with okay. And in turn, I found more happiness in myself and in my life.⠀
Stop living in extremes. Stop expecting perfection. Be okay with failures and mediocracy. You find life is more fun and doing just okay is actually more than okay 🤷🏻♀️⠀
Daily to-do list:
1. Prioritize self care ✅
(🇬🇧English version in the comment below) 🇮🇹Due giorni fa ho compiuto gli anni, tanti nonostante ne dimostri 5 o 6 di meno...anche troppi se proprio vogliamo pensarci. Ma non pensiamoci per una volta, non facciamoci prendere dalla tipica depressione del “che cosa sto facendo della mia vita”. Quest’anno ho voluto fare le cose diversamente, dichiarando guerra alla condizione di solitudine che contraddistingue questa nostra vita londinese e ammazzando la voce del mio critico interiore che mi avrebbe suggerito di non scomodarmi troppo. Non ho mai organizzato grandi festeggiamenti, forse perché non ho mai pensato fosse importante o fossi abbastanza importante da chiedere a più persone di condividere con me questo giorno. Con un po di coraggio e istinto ho deciso regalarmi il giusto valore e di circondandomi di affetto...amici, coinquilini, conoscenti, visi sinceri. Italiani, inglesi, argentini, canadesi, Neo Zelandesi e una lunga lista di altre nazionalità presenti con il cuore e il pensiero. Ci vuole più amore per se stessi, egoismo, istinto, spontaneità e apertura verso gli altri e verso le possibilità della vita. Le seghe mentali, gli eccessivi ragionamenti e la preoccupazione estrema verso il prossimo non fanno altro che tenerci lontani dai nostri sogni. Il 2019 è iniziato con queste parole, un semplice consiglio che racchiude un grandissimo potere: “you have to stop being nice to people, start being kind to yourself and to others” ✨ 🙏🏻 💗•

Muka sehari2, katanya.
Masa iya? Nggak ngerasa begini soalnya🤪
Didn’t want to work out. Didn’t want to get up off the couch. Sick of feeling like a slug. One workout won’t change my life. It might not even change my mood. And I certainly might not want to do it tomorrow after work. But when I press play to MMA Shred I remember the energy I feel coursing through my body when I slam though a set. And I know when I work out I feel better about me. It may be twisted that that’s how I am right now, but self love is a long lonely road.
So here I am. Taking today. 🖤
If you want a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or objects 👏🏼 People come and go. Objects and material items come and go. BUT YOUR GOALS, you can stay with those forever! You can continually work on them every👏🏼 single👏🏼 day👏🏼! They won’t run away unless you give up on them. They won’t go out of style or end up in the back of the closet because a goal should involve becoming your best self and growing as a person! When would that be out of style?! When you are able to find happiness within a goal you don’t have to worry about relying on someone else to make you happy or having the latest and greatest ______!
I think we are all guilty of saying if I have this item or that outfit than I’ll be happier. Or if I can date _____ I’ll be happy. How long did that last 🙃 Couple days? Couple weeks? Couple months? I’ve had this fitness thing as a goal of mine going on 4+ years now and it hasn’t let me down 💪🏼 Find yourself a goal you love and run with it! It’ll keep you happy until you accomplish it and then you can make a new one or add on to your initial one 🙃
Don't be afraid of tough times.
Get curiously excited by them because it gets good when you get to the other side.
Each tough moment becomes a beautiful lesson if you choose to see it that way.
But first it takes you rising to the challenge, you've got this.
I believe in you. ❤️️ #sograteful

Art class today. Others said I have a factory. What did they mean? 🤔😇😂
It’s taken a long time to come to terms with the fact that I can’t please everyone. I can’t be the person that everyone in my life needed me to be. I was unhappy, angry and hateful and it really did make my soul sad. Once I accepted the fact that I was free to be myself and take care of myself, my view on self care and self love evolved to something that has allowed me to be comfortable with putting myself first. My happiness is now a priority and it feels great. I know I am a continuous work in progress. I have made many mistakes and will continue to make mistakes. I will still have bad days, but at least the good days outweigh the bad now. I wont always be the flaky friend that makes dates and cancels because I’m feeling overwhelmed by other things and want to hide away, I wont always be the mom that loses her patience to easily, and I wont always be the single girl who doesn’t feel deserving of love. It’s a continuous process but at least I’m better then I once was and getting better everyday. My inner peace and confidence grows everyday and I’m excited to see what the future brings and who I will be a year from now and five years from now because everyday is lesson and everyday creates a new path. #selflove #beapriority #takecareofyourself #happiness #findyourhappiness #happinessjourney #lovewhoyouare #bewhoyouwanttobe #alwaysgrowing #alwaysevolving #mood #beconfident
I remember those mornings so vividly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Mornings of tears and questions, wondering if this was all there was to life, if this is all there would ever be to my life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Wondering if there was something more out there, someway for me to dream and have the chance to live my dreams.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To live the kind of life that I wanted to live.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You see I had spent so long doing everything the right way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Doing everything that I thought I was supposed to do. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But what about what I really wanted? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What about the things my soul yearned for? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Then one day it all changed.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I stopped.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I stopped asking those questions. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I stopped crying at the start and end of each day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I stopped pretending that I was happy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I stopped pretending that this was what I wanted.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now I spend everyday going after my dreams.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I spend everyday striving to ensure that no women ever feels the way I did ever again, because no one should live a life of just surviving.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ No one should be alive, but actually living. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So I challenge you to never stop dreaming, never stop striving for thriving over survival, and never stop going after what sets your soul on fire because only then are we really living. #womenhelpingwomen #womeninspiringwomen #femaleempowerment #femaleentrepreneur #lifecoachforwomen #lifecoach #mindsetiseverything #mindsetcoach #successcoaching #raiseyourvibration #mindsetshift #freedomlifestyle #findjoy #bringjoy #mindfulness #findyourhappiness #thesundayseries
Um dia tu vais acordar e perceber que a vida muda todos os dias , que tu tal como a vida estás sempre a tempo de mudar o que queres , de mudares o que não queres . De deixar para trás o que te faz mal , de dizer basta ao que te aperta o coração . Vais sempre a tempo de pôr um ponto final no que não te deixa livre , de fechar a porta ao que te prende ao chão , de dizer adeus ao que te faz perder tempo ... Um dia tu vais acordar e perceber que a resposta que procuras está no “ vou ali ser feliz e não sei se volto “ que tu não dizes 🙏🏻 #findyourfreedom #findyourhappiness #dontletgoofyourself #voualiserfeliz #naoseisevolto #keepsmiling
Begin walking in your greatness!!!! Don’t quit you’re yo close to your breakthrough. Your rainbow is coming. God I forever faithful.
This turned into the most delicious glazed carrots... so much so I had them as a snack before bed 😂🤭 today’s quest is to whip up something with the green beans and snap peas. Maybe sauté them with cut almonds? 🤔
Everyone has a story. You’ve got something to share. Good story, Bad story, Success story, or a story of Challenge, I’d love to read/hear about it. Sometimes speaking out can help heal those wounded souls that you’ve been burying, even subconsciously.
About Me - The Grind.
I truly enjoy helping others. That’s just what I do. In the many hats I wear, HELPING OTHERS stays consistent. I help people achieve their dreams of purchasing a home, help save people money, bring families together from a world of chaos, help others find themselves, help to set goals and work with clients to achieve them, mindfulness and gratitude training for nonstop workaholics, put smiles on children’s faces, bring laughter to the workplace, provide clothes and food for families in need, work with the community to build a better environment, cultivate relationships between people and/or groups, help to uncover unconscious blockage that prevents people from getting to where they need to be, challenge others, motivate individuals, help others gain perspective, etc. .
Before you start working with someone, it’s good and refreshing to know a little about them. I’m not perfect and I don’t always have the answers, but I’m honest, have a ton of patience, always willing to learn and seek, and I like to keep it real. But above it all, I CARE. .
Every gift, every frustration, every single thing that went wrong is a reflection of what is inside of you. YOU are the one that brought this to you and once you accept 100% responsibility for that and you CHOOSE to see the LESSON in it you will be able to find freedom. It's the resistance of what is that brings us suffering. Let go of the resistance, and live in the now.

Honestly, why do you invest so much of your valuable time caring about what others think of you? Learning curve to better who you are? Sure. But if it’s affecting you and your soul, you don’t need it. You can continue to Project what they are saying, Accept it and Move on, or Focus on yourself and your growth and don’t give a shit! Spend that valuable time on YOU. .
What matters is how you perceive yourself even if your exterior self hasn’t projected the inner you. Spend time with yourself. Find YOU. Take that beautiful soul and share it with the world! This is YOUR Light. .
Find your Inner Peace.
It takes Time. Sometimes you need a village of supporters who are aligned with the same values to help you discover who you truly are. .
I absolutely love it when I meet like-minded individuals who share similar values and goals as me. It is important to keep each other on track and to support each other in need. What are some things you do to find inner peace?
