So sorry I've been so dead on all my social media accounts. .
I'd like to introduce the new member of my family.
This is my 2 month old beagle puppy, Calla! Yes, Calla like the Calla Lily.
She's a tri colored beagle with sweet disposition and energy to burn. And what I've learned so far, is that this gal is ready for puppyhood, just not motherhood. Hahaha.
So lately lots of my time has been to this little lady. Calla will be gracing us with her presence alot more on my pages! Just it has been an adjustment period with the little lady. .
Anyways I'm off to bed, because puppyhood is wearing me out already!
to bed 😴😴😴

Out of town for the night and still got my gym session in.
That could be a gym session or a glass of wine.
You always have a choice. ✅
I’m smiling not because of the gym because that’s just a standard behaviour but because of my days learnings.
Reflection and perspective are beautiful things.
The way we grow is to own what we learn....from how we act, how we mess up, how we perceive, how we fail, how we win.
When we own it, we then apply it and that is where the growth happens.
People talk about shit without having gone through the process. People talk about a process without understanding what the process actually is.
Gave this poetry thing another go didn’t I! I’ve always admired poets for as long as I can remember and I’ve always enjoyed writing itself. It’s weird how I can share with you all my artwork but when it comes to opening up and honestly expressing feelings onto paper it can be so terrifying, but I want to practice and put my thoughts out there...so here you are, poem number two. 🌖 x x
I'm going to track my first 30 days of this new way of eating and see how I go. Today was my first official day of dairy/grain/sugar free and I'm not going to lie, I feel like this will be a struggle 😏 My first challenge was switching my morning piccolo to a dairy free alternative and let me tell you right now, I CAN NOT stand the heated almond milk and coffee combo 🤢🤢 I avoid soy as much as possible so I tried an iced latte with almond milk and it was pretty good. Here in Australia it's starting to warm up so I think it will be an easy switch. Being unprepared at work today was also a challenge because almost everything at my work place has dairy or gluten in it. It just means I need to be more organized. Anyway I came home and whipped this up in no time at all but I was so famished I could have easily reached for something sweet! Pan seared salmon on a bed of purple cabbage with radish and pepitas. I made a dressing using a little lemon and olive oil and it was delicious 👌 #learningcurves #healyourgut #dysbiosis #grainfree #sugarfree #dairyfree #healingfromtheinside #healthyeveryday #fattyfish #saladsaladsalad
Thank you. For being you. For everything you do. To show up as you do. As you did. As you will. In my life. And in yours. Thank you for playing the role(s) that you play in my past present and future. Thank you for the lovers. Thank you for the haters. Thank you for the supporters. Thank you for the detractors. You are all perfect. Just as you are. Don’t change. You need to be you, to live out this life you chose to live. Without guilt. Without fear. Without stress. Without rejection. Everything is perfect. Everything is as it should be. There is nowhere else I would rather be than where I am right now. The spectrum of every kind of experience has brought me here. Stronger. More lovable. Adaptable. Capable. Determined. Than ever before. I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. 💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗

• no man should enter the mountains if they are not strong enough to carry their own load • this was the very moment I decided I would never do another guided hike with a porter • you learn nothing walking blind folded into unknown territory • there remains many photographs of this hike that make me cringe, purely because I could have carried for my own • this is the strongest of them all •

Last week I joined a gym. I was full of anxiety but once I was there I loved getting moving again. Exercise can be such a mental game. Injuries are a mental game. I play out my exercise patterns like i play out my life and if I can modify them then I can change my life. #learningcurves #mentalgametraining #movethatbodymovethatsoul
These are the leggings of a long day... smeared in penicillin, sodium bicarb slurry, mag-o-lax and cow bile... it was a long weekend, and not the relaxing kind, with both cows down, both dogs struggling with infections, 3 emerg vet calls, a barn flood, broken furnace ... we are so relieved to say everyone is still with us this morning! We are not out of the woods quite yet, still lots of concern & doctoring ahead, but I am so thankful for vet friends & moral support & patience & sense of humour & lattes! It could have been so much worse. Even if we loose an animal, I’ll know without a doubt, we have it our all and the very best chance at survival. On the bright side, I feel quite proud of myself for administering intramammory treatments, and speculum tubing for the first time without vet assistance! #youwinsomeyoulosesome #farmingisexhausting #learningcurves #ilovemyjerseys #ilovemygamprs #longdayahead #rehobothfarm
Your two biggest obstacles to goal completion are getting started and then finishing what you start. I am the kind of person that has no problem setting a goal. I love setting goals they truly inspire me to make a difference in the world.
But once I set a goal, getting started becomes a major issue for me. The path from goal setting to goal completion is filled with the most roadblocks at the start of your journey. So I sit there staring at a blank page wondering where to start.
There it sits my wonderful beautiful goal just waiting for me to take some action. It’s begging me to begin. To just do anything to get the ball rolling. Yet I sit there paralyzed by indecision.
Wholly crap! Where do I start? There just seems to be so many things to do that I have never done before. My fear of the unknown has me frozen. Even Frosty the Snowman is envious of me.
Whenever you start something new, the learning curve will start calling out procrastination’s name.
I learned that I had to beat down procrastination quickly. It had to be pushed back down into the sewer that it slithered out of. Otherwise my page would stay blank.
I realized that the only way to start filling a blank page is to swipe the mothballs aside, grab a writing utensil and start taking action on the most important task first.
I got that most important task done and I started to see progress. I was still running uphill, but the plateau was in my sights.
Once I got past the initial learning curve of starting something new, I soon reached a plateau. When I climbed my way to the summit of this flattop everything began to fall into place.
The road to completing my goal flattened out and got much easier to navigate just by simply starting.
Are learning curve roadblocks holding you back? Determine what they are, pin down the most important task that needs to be completed first, then just get it done!
Quit staring at a blank page. Fill that sucker up and go kick some butt!

I got 2 great pieces of advice this week from my very clever friends.
One was “a smooth sea never made a gifted sailor” and the other was “don’t underestimate the learning power of having to cope”. So when I saw this fabric.... I just had to have it 😍
I have a small amount of this - so if you want a custom order, just send me a message ❤️ Happy Monday! 💫

Oh the stories this coaster could tell.
The start of a journey of me began on this night. It may not have ended the way I thought it could've but I'd never trade the lessons I learnt during the months that followed the night after this pic was taken.

Wow is it windy out there today. Exploring a new spot by the house whilst dad tests out the new gimble. #learningcurves
I love Friday, but that is also when my bed is the most comfortable. It makes getting out of bed harder! So I had to countdown a few more times than usual, but I got up. I put on my workout clothes, I pushed play and now it is done and I feel great!
Building the life you want, working on your goals, making the changes you want is HARD work and unfortunately motivation is a sneaky thing that comes and goes as it pleases... For over a year now, I have stuck to my programs and clean eating and, every day I make the committment to work on myself to become better. And believe you me, motivation is definitely not always there. What works for me is when motivation fails: ➡️Allowing myself to take the time to learn, to grow, to give myself the benefit of the doubt that I CAN change. ➡️ Being disciplined is one of the most valuable I have been working on implementing in my life. When it comes to consistency and making changes, discipline is the real game changer. You don't feel like it? Do it anyways! You don't want to do it because you need to get out of your comfort zone? 5-4-3-2-1 Do it!
Definitely easier said than done, but the rewards are so much greater than regretting or not knowing what could be!!! This morning I got up and got it done for those who, like me, needed the extra push 💦

“If it were to be fixed in a day; it wouldn’t be called pain.”
Betraying people is easy, what hurts the most is when you betray yourself. .
Trusting people is easy, what’s difficult is losing trust in your own self.
When life throws pebbles in your way. What will you do? Pick them up & keep walking .. or lay out a path with those pebbles and change your direction.
Making someone embarrassed is easy, what’s difficult is embarrassing yourself and living with that embarrassment. .
If you know you’ve made a mistake, what will you do?
Keep thinking about the mistake: replaying the consequences in your mind over and over again? Forgive yourself? Give up on yourself ? Or wish you never made one in the first place ?
When someone trusts you with all their ability. What do you do ? Hold on to that trust for those days when you fuck up or be hopeful you wouldn’t do something to hurt their trust ?
So what do you do on days you can’t live with yourself ? .
That’s the hardest part in this life - Living with Yourself and loving yourself, after all that you know you’re capable of doing to yourself or after all that you’ve already done. — K.B

My favorite teaching compliment to date has been about my classroom environment. The compliment? “Students are allowed to be wrong in your classroom. That’s the only way kids will learn.” I make it my business to instill the VALUE of community into my babies. No one is correct 100% of the time, including - ESPECIALLY me. We have to lean on each other’s perspective and experience to learn. Engagement and participation is very important to me, so I make sure everyone feels “safe enough to try” - maybe more importantly, “safe enough to try, AGAIN.”
I just know I have the pleasure of teaching some of the world’s future doctors, lawyers, entertainers, artists, authors, teachers, law enforcement officials, military professionals, politicians, thought leaders, etc. I get to teach babies how to love themselves enough to learn. I get to ignite a passion for growth & learning - never to be extinguished. I’m blessed to do it. I’m grateful to be sent. I am committed to teach.

“Are you okay?” Has been a frequently asked question lately and answering “Yes.” just feels so normal, as if it is the right answer to the question. Recently I’ve realized that I say yes to change the subject, so that I don’t receive any further questions, because what happens when I say “actually, I’m not okay.”. But if I’m being honest, currently I’m not okay, and admitting that is making me feel okay with not being okay. I willingly sacrificed my heart and my trust, both so delicate and rare, into the hands of uncertainty, blinded by a glove soon to be removed to reveal betrayal. So No, I am not okay, but I will be.
