collect moments, not things. 🦋
Something to think about on a Monday morning!
Are you in love with your life?? If not, guess what....you have everything you need to change it! 💪🏻
But!!! There’s always something good in every day no matter how small!
So 👉🏻 My 30 day Check-In challenge starts today! 🗓
Actively thinking about what you are grateful for was something I was introduced to by @ryanbhartley
last year, and recently I’ve been introduced to this challenge by some friends of ours from #depression2extinction
30 days to #berealcheckin
We are all human. We all have emotions. Let’s own them, discuss them and share them.
I am challenging everyone to take a stand with me. The stigma around emotions and how showing your emotions makes you vulnerable. Being told it’s a bad thing... what a load of 💩! Copy and paste the ten emotions and end with a positive affirmation!
Join the conversation and help Eliminate the STIGMA of Depression and Anxiety once and for always.
I’ll be checking in later today with mine!!! #d2e #yourstorymatters #endthestigma #mentalhealth #growth #loveyourself #positivevibes #happiness #anxiety #humanconnection #betterme #keepfighting #positivemindset #movement
I used to be in a place where family vacations were the only vacations I would take. They were paid for by my parents. If I wanted to travel on my dime it had to be within driving distance. In 2016 and 2017 I flew 2x - once on my parents dime and the other was a part of a corporate relocation package for my husband.⠀
I wanted to see the world. I wanted to be inspired by travel. I wanted to attend live events and conventions to improve myself both personally and professionally. But things kept getting in the way: putting myself and my needs on the backburner, unhappy with the lack of support and inspiration I got from those around me.⠀
I wanted to level up my business, but knew I needed to level up as a human being - as Jenna Carelli - first. I was depressed, feeling very insecure and lonely as a new online entrepreneur.⠀
There is something truly amazing about a change of environment. When the opportunity to move to Florida fell into our lap, we knew it was going to be a huge decision that would change the trajectory of our lives as individuals and as a family.⠀
You see, anytime I switch up my environment, even if it means working from a coffee shop one day instead of the kitchen counter, I write my best content, get inspired by new incredible things, and have breakthroughs.⠀
Inside my PA home lived a girl craving adventure, sunshine, human connection, an overall brighter world.⠀
For me, moving to Florida was the "ah ha" I needed to quit playing small and open my eyes to the incredible version of me that had been present inside of me eager to rise above my depression and anxiety.⠀
Because we took this leap, I've been able to travel much more - and on my own dime (or points!).⠀
・How are you playing small?⠀
・In what ways aren't you showing up for yourself?⠀
・What are the limiting beliefs holding you back from reaching your highest potential?⠀
・What action steps can you take this week to start to elevate your potential?
I choose connection
I am so inspired by empowered people who empower people!
this one is for those that have no idea what the hell they’re doing for their career. as a senior in college, i feel like i’m surrounded by people who have finalized full time jobs waiting for their arrival after graduation. i am not one of those people. i am in the middle of rethinking my entire life because i keep falling in love with filming and editing more and more and enjoying business less and less. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
some people really have it all figured out...while i don’t even KNOW what to search for on indeed. i have a lot of trust in the universe and i know things will line up for me regardless of my endless doubts and anxiety. all i know is that i love doing this. i love having this platform to share my thoughts and visions. watch the whole thing in my bio. song: appointments by julien baker.
My first post in over 10 days...I have been on a social media "fast" where I have been abstaining from using social media for the last 10 days or so.
At first it was hard because social media is half of my job! I wanted to do it properly so I didn't use any of my accounts... including business ones like this one. But, over the last week and a half, I have learned that we literally use social media for everything in life. It seems to be the new way of talking to one another. And so when I left social media I felt disconnected from the entire world. in some ways it was very Zen like. But on the other hand, I also felt like I was missing out on announcements like my friends' pregnancies and births of their children; and just what was going on in their lives! As much as I love social media and I love posting what I'm doing...And I like to look at what others are doing, I think it would be good for us all to actually socialize in person as well...even for business stuff. Things like lunch together. talking on the phone or write a letter, something more personal...seemed to get just as much accomplished as posting on insta or sending a tweet.
I am back on social media now, and I will continue to use it...but I think the lessons I've learned from this experience I will continue to incorporate my life and make sure that I actually physically check up on my friends more often and have more in person business meetings in addition to posting and doing things online! Nothing beats physical connections with another human being!

'Human connection, no matter how big or small can do wonders in improving our mental state and positively affecting our mental health.'
- Sam Moss.
I've been so so inspired by @moss_folk
whole movement. Sam Moss had created a mental health awareness space for folks in Melbourne that includes workshops and a real beaut space to make like minded mates.
REACH OUT TO UR MATES AND HOLD THEM CLOSE.
Hiking in a remote, Utah canyon in 2003, Aron Ralston got his arm pinned under an 800-pound boulder. Ralston tried to free himself. Provisions dwindled as days passed. His situation dire.
Day 5, he realized his arm was dead, and he also had an epiphany. He realized he did not have to die with his arm.
Ralston said, “my epiphany made it easy for me to apply a tourniquet and cut my arm off with a pocket knife.” No comfortable task, but he did it. He then applied First Aid and hiked out of the canyon. “It’s so amazing to be alive. We decide if a life event is going to be a tragedy or a triumph.” Is something dead in your life? Yet, you emotionally hold on when you should figuratively cut it off? It might be a job; a loved one, a relationship, an opportunity, or a cherished dream. Staying attached to the dead part, you risk dying with it, just as if you, are pinned beneath the boulder.
Aron chose to live. To do that, he had to separate himself from the dead limb. Courage? Yes! But here’s the critical part: along with his courage was a conscious decision to outlive the part that had died.
After doing all we can to save it, sometimes we need to accept that a part of our life is dead. We then need to cut it off emotionally, apply First Aid, and hike out.

it’s Alice’s birthday! this woman is a gem beyond gems. she is funny, kind, knows herself deeply, brilliant, has a beautiful heart, and is one of the best people to have in your corner.
she pours a whole lotta love into everything she does. this space wouldn’t be what it is if it weren’t for Albs. ✨send her some birthday lovin!✨
also, for those we came to our Lady Crush Live event ... remember the story of our night out that included a gorg gay man, an MMA fighter with a massive neck, and a 17 year old? the last photo here is taken by said 17 year old (who is probably definitely still crushing hard on Alice)
I was just talking about this today...and then... Voila!, it shows up on my newsfeed as beautiful wisdom from @daniellelaporte
!! Synchronicity baby! 🙌🏻♥️✨. Unless we show up as our authentic selves, in our truth; the beautiful bits, the messy bits, the ugly bits, the growing and seeking and expanding bits... we cannot truly shine our light or share our love. To show up authentically; as the perfectly imperfect human that I am, to let you truly see me...it takes down barriers between us. Standing authentically in our truth allows deep connection to ourselves and to each other. The Universe cannot resist authenticity, and neither can we. We are drawn to it. We see ourselves in it, in you. 🙏🏻✨💗. #soultosoulconnection #reikilife #redtentcircle #bekindtoyourself #authenticity #synchronicity #beyourself #womensgathering #humanconnection
My Father joined me on my trip to Washington DC. While here he reunited with his childhood friend. They are both in their 80s, and have known each other since they were 6 years old. It has been many years since they have last seen each other. It was really special to sit with them listening to their stories. They remembered vividly the moments they collected together as children, teenagers, and young men many many decades ago.
Time goes by fast. We all know that. The human connections and experiences we collect with others are a moment in time. But those authentic moments stay with us for the rest of our lives. It’s meaningful. Never take the value of an authentic human connection for granted. It was a blessing to be reminded of this today. 🙏🏼🙏🏼 #blessed #humanconnection #friendship #collectexperiences
A passenger goes on a racist, refusing to sit next to a black woman on a Ryanair flight from Barcelona to London. In the age cell phone video and social media, I appreciate the light being shed on racial ignorance. However, as a mother of a daughter and a son, all I can do is encourage them to hold on to their self-pride when they sit next to a person like this on a plane, or face racism when sleeping in their college dorm, or throwing a barebecue, or entering their own home, or waiting in a Starbucks, or selling water on a Summer day, or leaving a an Air BNB.
There's a disconnect that I feel will never fuse, as long as hearts stay damaged from years of hatred. @abcworldnewstonight

what better way to start my #selflovesunday
and set the tone for the rest of my week than by showing up for myself to yoga class, sipping on some matcha, and making new connections that help me find those who are on a similar path 🙏🏼
thank you, Laura, for leaning into me, for being a kick ass yoga instructor and for helping me come back home to myself 🌿
think you may want to come hang with us next week and let Emma make you some bomb latte art!?
to register your spot in Yoga+Coffee ☕️🧘🏼♀️
Coincidence doesn’t exist. We get what we can handle, ideas come to us so we can pursue them, and people cross our paths because we’re all here to teach each other something. Everybody has a gift to give. Our mission is in taking care of ourselves so we can be at our highest, joyous, most resilient and confident state when what’s meant for us really knocks us on our butts with clarity. That’s the next move 💡
Starting a new Appaloosa horse drawing inspired by the quest of a single American woman, Scott Engstrom, to find this rare breed of horses in Central Asia despite history books telling her the contrary. Being opinionated does pay off as she not only did find the horses in Kyrgyzstan but she also created a passionate and very moving documentary about her adventures in Central Asia: True Appaloosa. If you like travelling, adventure and wildlife, go watch it! You won’t regret it.
Do we need another person to make us complete? When did we begin to believe we were not fully whole individuals, all on our own?
It can take deep soul searching to unlearn this lie, but the truth is that we are already complete, albeit flawed, human beings, all on our own. No other person can fill our empty spaces, but this does not mean that we don’t need others.
Human beings cannot fully flourish without human connection. Our souls need mates... those who inspire, challenge, support, and understand us deeper... and inevitably allow us to fully embody our best self.
A soulmate union is a relationship which is in balance. There is no struggle because the very idea of power doesn’t exist. No one needs to become smaller. No one is in control.
Soulmates can appear as friends or lovers, but in all cases, they bring their entire messy self to the table, and they feed on and learn from each other. Each can easily stand alone, but they are better, and will grow stronger, when they are together.
It sounds like a unicorn. Is this kind of relationship even possible? I think it is. This is my wish for me, and for you. Let’s set this world on fire together! 🔥❤️

Heard this quote years ago and have seen it remain true in my life ever since. #humanconnection
✨LOVE THIS✨ as many know my biggest struggle has been trying to understand and use social media as a tool for my business. As someone who is old enough to still remember my parent’s typewriter, when we got our first computer and having a pager for most of high school I feel sometimes I am lost in a world of selfies, filters, followers/likes and algorithms that are supposed to represent my worth as a business..it’s posts like this that are a reminder that although social media is a powerful and amazing tool for businesses it doesn’t define your business..it’s how hard your work, how much your willing to learn and improve and ultimately how you connect and treat your customers and fellow artists..at least that’s the motto I’m going to live by ✨
My most favorite thing?
Let's talk about likes, dislikes, passions, beliefs, your story, fears, dreams, the darkest and brightest parts of you.... I get lit finding out the WHOLENESS of people - the good, the bad, the weird, ALL OF IT. Honesty, authenticity, rawness... THAT'S what attracts my soul to others. ❤

This weekend was V fall! 🌽
My favorite 🎃
What fall activity have you done so far or have written on the cal?? 🍂
let’s talk about happiness 🌞 I currently am in such an incredible place. It’s almost as if I have unlocked a new level of self love, gratitude and appreciation for human connection somewhere deep inside me. There has been so much growth, learning and strength building this past year to get me to the place I am today. This weekend especially has shown me how amazing it is to live and experience life, I wish I could express what it means to me, but it is hard. I know that I have more to learn, I know I have more strength to build, but this is an appreciation for myself and all of you who have felt a new confidence, a new strength or experienced a new perspective. I am telling you, I am proud of you for living life. For waking up each day and continuing on, for striving to better yourself, I am proud of you and I hope you continue to unlock your inner happiness. Life is a mix of ups and downs, but in the words of Kahlil Gibran “He who has not looked on Sorrow will never see Joy.” 😊 Have a beautiful Sunday everyone! 🌻🏔🌊🌲💓 #letsbehappyseries
