🌊When nature matches your mood. Blue. So many shades of blue. .
How is it possible to wake up with a heavy heart when surrounded by this beauty? Trust me - it’s possible. Today I just wanted my old comforts, familiar smells, to fit in, and be cuddled.
Living your best life takes guts. For the first time ever, I don’t understand the language and it’s thrown me for a loop! I guess this is culture shock? Breathe in the peace, breathe out the pain. With the ebb and flow of my breath, this moment starts to shift. Thank you yoga.

One of the most revolutionary concepts that we learned in the 20th century is that time is not a universal measurement.
It doesn't matter how much our lives are governed by the same seconds, minutes, hours, days, and weeks, regardless of where we live on the globe, time will never be absolute. The rate at which it passes depends entirely on your speed and acceleration at any given moment. So use the time wisely to grow and evolve.
Easier said than done, right? .
Yet, over and over again we see the same situations and similar stories amongst families we read or speak to.
For many, there is usually some sort of unresolved issue within a family member that makes them pretty unbearable to be around. They usually feel lost in their own problems or vices and seem to spiral down a toxic path of unhappiness and sometimes drag you with them. But are you enabling the behaviour making yourself more miserable or are you advocating for change and offering help for the person causing the pain? For many, it’s easier to be the enabler than try to help someone who doesn’t think they need “helping”. You’re always agreeing when you don’t want to, covering up, defending or smoothing things over to not rock the boat so to speak. But it’s in these relationships that one person becomes resentful and suffers even more than the one who began with the unresolved issue. .
Are you having the difficult conversations? Are you advocating for a better resolve or sitting back and watching it happen. It’s only when we are willing to become even more uncomfortable with ourselves and the hurtful situations that we can start to advocate for ourselves and the environment around us. You don’t have to be a doormat to other people’s issues. Take a stand for yourself for a change- you owe it to yourself. Sometimes a little tough love goes a long way. You might be surprised how better things can be when you show you are willing to honour yourself first. Perhaps you’ll inspire that family member to do the same. We are all worthy of happiness..You don’t need to continue suffering, you are much stronger than you think! ❤️

Grand in every sense of the word.
I’ve always tried to be less.
To make myself smaller.
I used to wish I was shorter, thinner. I hunched over all the time. I constantly sucked in my stomach.
I even watered down who I was. I felt like even my personality was too big. So I did what everyone else did. I went with the flow. Lost myself.
I was miserable.
But no more.
The world needs you to be exactly and authentically YOU. You are unique and different ON PURPOSE. You deserve to take up space on this earth and you deserve to be heard!
Be confident. Be proud. Be unapologetically YOU.
It's not you that people like or dislike, it's their story of you. @byron.katie
This quote is my absolute favorite!!!
It taught me to let go of what other people think about me. It made me realize that what people think about me is never about me. And vice versa what I think about other people is never about other people but how I see them. It actually shows me how I think about me.
What moreover is great material for questioning my thoughts. To get to know me, finding true connection, true happiness and true love, all in myself!
This man has had my back for more than 27 years.
He is the quiet strength to my somewhat chaotic way of life.
I run on emotion more times than not and he processes and thinks things through.
I have no problem meeting new people and carrying on conversations with strangers. He sits quietly and would prefer a quiet night at home with myself and our kids or close friends.
I can listen to any music at all and he prefers country or old rock and roll.
He is the smartest, kindest, most giving guy I know.
No he isn't perfect but neither am I.
Marriage has shown us it's one of the hardest things we have done.
BUT neither of us would have it any other way. We embrace our changes and love each other thru them.
We made a choice to grow older together.
For better or worse.
Sickness and health.
I would do it all over again.
My forever Valentine.
When you sit with a friend in pain,
when their world no longer makes sense;
when confusion rages
and no rest is to be found.
Just for a moment,
will you resist the temptation
to make things better,
to reassure them,
to provide answers,
even to heal them?
Will you offer your stillness, your listening,
your presence, and the warmth
of your immediacy?
Will you hold them in your heart
with the same tenderness
of a mother holding her little one?
Will you embrace them where they are,
without needing them to change or transform
according to your own needs and schedule?
Will you stay close,
holding your own impatience and discomfort near?
Will you look into their eyes
and see yourself?
Will you stay in the inferno of healing with them,
trusting in disintegration,
knowing that you are only witnessing
the falling away of an old dream?
Sometimes in doing nothing
everything is undone,
and love is revealed to be
the only true medicine.~ ~ Jeff Foster & Matt Licata
Type "AMEN" if you agree!
I loved everything about my workout today 💕
I did NOT love everything about any of the pics I took afterwards 😱
Kyle Tucker can attest that I had something negative to say about myself in pretty much every photo... and there were a lot of photos. .
It got me thinking 🤔 who else does this to themselves??!?
▪️ who has a mean girl staring back at them in the mirror?
▪️ who spends more time breaking themselves down than building themselves up?
▪️ who says, or worse, believes what other ppl say about them more than they believe who they know they are in their own heart?
▪️ how would I feel if my girls thought these things/said these things about themselves? .
I’m done! I’m done believing what hurt ppl have said to hurt me. .
I’m done! I’m done believing the lies, limiting beliefs, self- destructive thoughts or anything less than the truth. .
✔️I am loved (by the Heavenly Father)
✔️I am beautifully and wonderfully made
✔️I am capable
✔️I am worthy
✔️I am a good mother
✔️I am a good wife
✔️God will use me to changes people’s lives
You are too. Please please please stop letting others write your internal narrative.
As you look in the mirror and notice the holes 🕳, you say no, thanks, to the urge to stuff them with things because it has never been about the things. You take a slow inhale through the nose, sigh it all out through the mouth, look at the woman looking back at you and you tell her this out loud:
🌿 “What we’ve lost, I’ll find it with you. I’m back to stay. We’ll heal and grow, together, because you are worthy of my time, attention and respect. And I love you.” 🌿
As I connected with the energies of the tribe tonight the guides directed me to this specific share for three to four soul sisters in the Essence collective. I see you, and I know this week hasn’t been easy with holes from the past coming up for air. Remember, each one is here to return you whole, if you choose, and endings only come as divine invitations to brand new beginnings. Even when it feels like the world is walking out, you did not come this far to abandon yourself.
As within, so without. 🌓
Type “YES” if you got this soul fam x 💙 #self

If we want to fully experience love and belonging, we must believe that we are worthy of love and belonging. Worthiness doesn’t have prerequisites. No more, I’ll be worthy when...I’ll be worthy if...
Do me a favor.
In the comments below. Write I am worthy. Go!
Glad I took the time to cook last night!! Meat sauce with cottage cheese over spaghetti squash. Taste like lasagna!
Just completed 4 weeks of my 20 minute workouts and I’m feeling great! My core is getting stronger and I’m definitely losing inches in my midsection and back. My arms feel great too! I can’t wait to my progress at 6 weeks and compare my measurements!
But the even bigger transformation was in my mind. When things get hard I quit. But not this time. If an exercise was hard instead of taking a break I pushed harder, went faster, jumped higher. I leaned into the workout instead of running away. And that’s empowering. I feel my body and my mind transforming every day and I’ve never felt better!! It’s not easy but it’s worth it, you are worth it. You ready to transform yourself? Drop an emoji and I’ll show you how ❤️ .

I'm still in shock...I haven't gathered all my words YET!⠀
When you visualize yourself doing something and you put it in front of you each and every single day. You believe in yourself, yet you're still not sure how you will achieve it. But none the less you believe that you are worthy of it, you all the sudden realize it is your reality!⠀
Has this journey been easy? HELL NO, but when you live your days with purpose and passion then the nonsense, white noise, distractions of others will slow you down!!!⠀
Find your purpose and live it out with full passion daily!⠀
This has me humbled to the core and speechless still.⠀
I will be speaking on the same stage at the same event as many legends I respect and have learned from on my journey but MY #1

There is so much bliss to be felt in the discomfort of new paths and ways of being. 🌹
It may not seem that way, but when you lean into what discomfort has to teach you, pleasure will be found. 👁
The way I have been working with discomfort lately is through placing my feet into the snow. I even spent time hula hopping with no shoes outside. ⭕️ .
At first it’s extremely uncomfortable. It’s like needles are piercing my entire body. Cold liquid flows up my feet and into my veins. 🥶
But then I breathe, I surrender, and find that the sensations are rather pleasurable. ✨
These sensations stay with me for a time after and my body awakens to new depths. ❤️
That is what discomfort does. It creates expansion. It creates new pathways. But when we resist the discomfort, it feels awkward and unsettling. 👎
On this journey I’ve learned that growth cannot really happen without that initial sensation of uncomfortable. 💃🏾
Our gift is then to see discomfort in a new way. Our gift is then to lean into the uncomfortable and uncover the pleasure that awaits. 🌈
So if you’re growing, following new paths, releasing old stories to embrace new ones, and feel the ickiness of discomfort, I invite you - instead of running away from it- to lean towards it and find the bliss that awaits 🌙
What is your relationship to discomfort? How can you find pleasure in it today? 🥰
