Filters. Wonderful things. This @leefilters ND filter had survived a 59 storey fall in Singapore after catching the holder on a guardrail on the roof of the Marina Bay Sands. It landed on the adjacent roof of the shopping centre where I suspected I would witness it turn into a distant puff of a thousand pieces. After hiking down, up again and over a locked gate, I got it back and all it had to show for its journey was a light chip from one corner. This time however, on a recent shoot in the states, it slipped out of the holder and managed a journey of just 3 feet and exploded into what you see here. It happened because the rubber holders do become relaxed over use/time so make sure you check them regularly to avoid this. #oops#broken#glass#smash#photography#tips#filters#gear#embraceghefuckup#learnfromothers
First off, thanks for showing me this exercise @nickmeyerfit . It definitely kills my core.
You go opposite knee to opposite elbow. That works the obliques on the side of the abdominals, and in this case, a bit of your back muscle groups as well. So why not give it a shot in your next workout that involves core? Cause everybody wants abs.
If you cant do it off the bat on a pull up bar, start doing them in sit-ups, then work your way up. Not everything comes naturally. Even here I’m still working on touching my knee every time. Just know you’re working up to it. That will make the time you can do it over and over in sets that much more of a victory.
Being a parent is a tough job. For most of us from the moment we become aware of our little person's existence we begin to question ourselves. Unfortunately as soon as we announce our joy many feel compelled to criticize our choices. At a time in our lives when we could use the most support we are made to feel less than by those who would choose a different path. 👉🏻"You are returning to work? If a woman can't be a stay-at-home mom she should never have kids."
👉🏻”She is over a year-old and you are still breastfeeding? You must be getting some sexual pleasure from it- there is no nutrients in your breastmilk now."
👉🏻”You butchered your son."
👉🏻”You aren't going back to work? Must be nice to do nothing all day while the rest of us are working for a living."
👉🏻”He really is a handful isn't he- maybe you should give him something to calm him down." 👉🏻”Using essential oils around your children is not safe."
👉🏻”Chiropractic care is junk science. It's not safe for children."
👉🏻”If you disciplined her properly she wouldn't react that way." All the above has been said to me as a mother. Not one time did this approach change my perspective. I’m always open to respectful discussion. My choices are dictated by my experiences & I respect your own experiences have shaped your decisions. Perhaps if we listened to each other for understanding rather to respond our knowledge would grow. Raising little people is hard enough let’s start supporting each other on the journey. (Extended thoughts can be seen through the link in my profile.)
Have you ever noticed how packed churches get on #AshWednesday ? Ever wondered why? Check out Faithcounts.com to see our new article. "I think there’s something about Ash Wednesday that reminds us of something essentially human. If there’s something we can all relate to as human beings, it’s that we’re sinners. There’s something universal in this sense that we’ve strayed and we know it. There’s something beautiful about this honesty and willingness to show up and say so."

V-day plans? Reading @mattzhaig over lunch at Parables while waiting to pick up my Valentine from getting her teeth cleaned at the vet's. Get to be on the news again as they do a story on online dating scams. My brother is so lovely sharing my story with his co-workers about my history of screw ups😣 but I now choose to see it as a way of warning/helping others. Even got to share @tonyainstagram words with the reporter - be in love with yourself, always first. And I was wearing an @twloha shirt - obviously. But seriously @johnthronberg - let's do a story on mental health in the workplace - I have the toxic outcome side, you just need the healthy side.
But back to my book - an inner trembling (I called it a soul-quiver). A great description of depression. Lots of good quotes so far but I am only on page 47 so back to reading.
I am amazed at the hard working, humble, and good people of Bali! They take such pride in their work. And their hard work can be seen everywhere you turn. From the perfectly planted rice fields to the talented sculptures. They have taught me to work harder and focus on what you’re good at. What are you good at that you can share with others?? @saltwatersandals
