The spider spends each day on a tightrope, tossed about by the currents of Life itself. Chasing lofty pursuits, his feet seldom touches the ground as he makes his own path in the space between Heaven and the earth. He faces every obstacle and fall with quietly dismissive resolve, and takes on challengers larger than himself - confident in his ability to succeed. He knows his worth. Know your worth! #LifeInColor #LivingInTheMoment #Reflections #Spiderwebs #Spiders #LifeLessons #Resilience #Resolve #Life
Time is precious, so what are you going to do with yours?
I spent a lot of time letting my ego self and suspicions of self rule my life. I allowed myself to drop into negative behaviours that led to a lot of wasting my own time.
Hours, days, years where I could have been doing things consistently to help get me to these places I want to be and instead I let myself avoid the real world and my emotions because that was easier. But in doing so I actively killed my dreams and mental health.
Time is the most precious thing we have because we will never get it back. We have to make the most of our time. That’s not some cliché it’s something that will lead to a more fulfilled and happy life.
And it’s important to remember that making the most of our time doesn’t always have to be epic. We live in a culture that’s begun to over romanticize being exhausted because you’re “hustling”. But slowing down and having self care is just as important as being productive toward your dreams. In fact taking time for self care is just as conducive, if not even more conducive to seeing results because your mind is what will get you to the places you need to be. Your mind is what decides if you deserve to get what you want. If it’s suffering, so too will your life.
I let myself idle for awhile out of angers and frustrations. I let myself get caught up in where I felt I should be instead of appreciating where I was. I had to let go of what I expected of myself and not only accept where I was but be grateful to be there. Life won’t always show you right away why the hard times were necessary. Sometimes it takes retrospect to see all you learned.
I’ve committed to doing better for myself, to break negative patterns that keep me in a place where I waste my own time and instead fight for all the things that I want because I deserve them.
Time is the most precious gift we have and we get to decide how we spend it. I want to spend it going after things I love, always being in a state of self care, continuously growing and learn as a person, being surrounded by unconditional friends, affecting real positive change in the world and being grateful for all I have.
The process of manifesting your dreams takes time, dedication, and patience. We’ve heard the phrase “anything worth having takes time” 1000+ times, but it continues to proof itself correct.
PROGRAMMING is your mindset. It should be positive and goal-seeking. Without it, the dreams are simply dreams💭
ACTION. Just do it props to ✔️. Neither fear nor acceptance should hinder you from improving 1% daily. No excuses. Keep pushing‼️
INSPIRATION. Ideas come and go. Keep track of them and grow the ideas until they manifest into something tangible. Remember, all ideas will not produce fruit.🍋
MOTIVATION. Find your why. It’ll help refuel your action, but don’t wait on it to take action. Waiting for motivation is like waiting for someone to give you a hand out. Save yourself🛶

Getting ready to welcome the newest members of the CATOY Family!
Tomemos una selfie a lo pensativa.. en la simplicidad y en la complejidad de la vida, ese coktail de momentos inesperados o tan esperados, you know.
No tenemos idea que hay detrás de cada foto, parece perfecto pero no es así, simplemente lo malo o desagradable no siempre es algo que guste compartir, por lo menos online. Pero a veces considero que si deseas crear comunidad, lazos diferentes con todo aquel que te sigue por x, y razón, está bien hacer el esfuerzo de abrir tu corazón, contarlo "en voz alta" , digo que a veces no hace daño.. Foto de ayer, hora antes que mi madre se cayera y golpeara feo.
Ella está mejor, reposando.

One of my favorite quotes from the 1st 200 episodes of the Are You Being Real Podcast. Thx for the wise & inspiring words @allisonkunath
👉 Get ready and be receptive. Focus on what makes you feel happy. And share this with any person you feel like. 👍
It’s Sunday 🦋🌈🌸 And my work is never done ✅ I got so much on my mind I don’t know if I’m coming or going 🤦🏾♀️🤷🏾♀️ Been trying to study all weekend & everyday there’s another set back or hurdle to slow me down 🎢 🧗🏾♀️ On top of that I have to deal with people’s opinions of what kind of person & friend they say I am just because I disagree with their views & chose to focus & concentrate on my own business, my own goals, my own burdens & doubts 😪 As strong as I chose to be or how positive the outside world may think I am... I am a very sensitive Leo 🦁 When a person has suffered from depression the hardest thing they can do everyday is fight to be in control of their thoughts, to chose to be happy, to stay away from negativity no matter the cost 💫 We don’t go out of our way to be negative or nasty people... We put ourselves first because it’s the only choice we have to be the majestic warriors we fight to be every single day we open our eyes. 🙏🏾💯 I don’t need people putting me down because I don’t agree with them or because I don’t wish to carry other people’s burdens... I doubt & beat myself up enough to carry the weight of what others think of me! I don’t wish to fight with myself & the weight of people telling me I’m something that I’m not, especially when I’ve already buried my past hurts, pains, doubts & mistakes 🛳 If we can put our past demons to rest then why should people hold our past behaviours against us 🤔 If we can accept others for all their qualities good & not so great then it’s only fair we are given the same treatment 💯💫🖤 #slowsunday #reflection #lifelessons #pastlife #movingon #progession #growth #workingonmyself #mindingmyownbusiness #healing #thinkingpositive #ijustwanttobeme #thisisme #withallhonesty #writingmystory #bekind #beinderstanding #listenmoretalkless #treatothershowyouwanttobetreated
Today's Snapshot Dream: Sheila
I've been divorced for 23 years, and at one point, I saw that as a failure. I know longer believe that. I'll be 65 years old in January. For years, I felt badly for divorcing; about not having a "real" career, and not finishing college. I always worked, it was just not a career. After all this time, I've come to realize that when I was happiest, and what I was most passionate about was raising my children. That is where I was supposed to be. That was my joy.
At nearly 65 years old, I'm now living the best part of my life. I'm helping watch the children of my children's friends. I love and care for their little ones as if they are my own. It brings me such joy to know I am making a difference each day that I'm with them.

to be happy, you need to know when to let go. don't continue to hurt yourself over something seemingly perfect. take the seeds of error and grow them into something truly beautiful. #art #timeline #lifelessons
Ok...so I haven’t actually done this before...but I can totally relate. I say we celebrate the little things in life that make us happy. Have any of you taken slippers to your friend’s house?
#happy #cozy #comfy #relax
The worst thing in life is holding onto a rope of hatred and grudges that connects you to those who have done wrong to you. Most people will go through life holding onto so many ropes that it gets tangled up. The worst part of all, some people who have passed on due to old age yet we still refuse to let go of the rope even without any person standing on the other end.
