Masks: we all have them. Parts of ourselves that we chose to reveal to the world. Parts of ourselves that we chose to hide. -
Who would you be if you took off the mask?
What’s underneath the job, the relationship, the habits, the patterns? And what are you hiding from the world?

Do dope things that move your soul. 🤟🏼
Am I where I wanted to be?
Did I get here easily?
Did I make a sacrifice?
Did I take a sharp left...
When I should have turned right?
⁃Darren Hayes, Where You Want To Be.
We all have our sliding doors moments, I’m sure. What if? What if things were different? What would have happened if I’d said yes instead of no, if I’d chosen to go on that trip, if I'd agreed with that boy, turned my back on that job??
Are these regrets?
Do I feel resentful?
Do I wish things were different?
For me, life is about the people you meet, the people you gather around yourself, the people you want in your life.
If I’d made other decisions, chosen different paths, had a different answer, then I may never have met the people that I’ve met, the people who share their lives with me each and every day.
And that would be a tragedy.
I believe wholeheartedly that life is what you make it.
No wishing things were different.
Life is what you make it.
And ain’t that the truth?

Dear IG Diary: this last couple of weeks has been difficult. The way we live our lives, things always shifting and changing, is usually exciting and fun but sometimes, it makes me weary. It doesn't leave much room for the times when you need to face yourself. Day to day life doesn't stop when you travel full-time - even though I know IG makes it seem as if its all adventure and sunshine - there are still clouds and difficult times. There are responsibilities and sadnesses and times when you don't know who you are. There is still illness and loneliness and any other "ness" you can think of... Again, we have big changes coming. We are leaving Cali in 2 weeks and heading back home to Nashville for some necessary adulting and regrouping. (Don't worry, its not 4 long) I wish we could say we're happier about it but that wld be untrue. We are both struggling. We are excited to spend time with family and friends and the familiar but this experience, being out here in SoCal has been transformational (how many times have you all heard me say that?lol). We have faced some major challenges here and also experienced incredible happiness...serenity. We've driven back into Mexico a couple of times and that has been soul-healing. It's easy to do that from here. We go to the beach or sunset cliffs several times a week. I (sunny) have dealt with a difficult health condition during our time here but with expert support and help, I've begun to find healing and health again. Ive found myself holding my breath and making wishes on stars that it will all continue to be ok. We completed and published a book while we were here. We made friends. We spread Gracie's ashes on every beach or beautiful place we could find. I miss her so much that I don't always know how to handle it. Thinking of her dismantles me. Coming off a long term international trip like ours is traumatic. I don't think overlanders talk about it enough. San Diego has provided such a warm place for us to land. California...lets you be you. Here is an Ensenada sunset for you. Seeing that sunset again brought me some peace at a time I'm not feeling peaceful. And here is a picture of Gracie. Just because.
The BIGGEST break through you will have is the day you decide to LET GO is the day you start to feel free, embrace your beauty and truly love who you are without judgement…...
There will always be a lot of noise in the world from other people who feel they have the right to judge, kick you when you are down and just plain be rude, they DON’T. Push that noise away and embrace your BEAUTY, own your FLAWS, and live your TRUTH.
Be YOU and don’t change for anyone as that is what makes you uniquely YOU in your own BEAUTIFUL way!

😅🤔Life has barely begun and thoughts about settling down are already coming to mind.🤷🏾♂️🤔
Strength doesn’t come from what you can do, but from overcoming the things you thought you never could.
Not everyone will understand your dreams;that’s why they were created for you, not them. 💛💛💛
Today I received light✨✨ Thank you @chopracenter
for inviting me up. Lately my mind has been a dark hole and now I can see light and the light is shining on TRUST, which has been my declared word of the year but lately I’ve forgotten it. Today I was able to get still enough to listen and come back to that space I know to be true🌟. I’m so excited to be back in my truth & spread the light I’ve received. I know my path is honest and today I was reminded it’s not up to me, I don’t have to do it alone. My mantra in meditation was “Ritam” which means “I am awake to coincidences and know that they are messages from God.” Thank you Chopra Center @alifeofmagic
for being a gift in my life. #trusttheprocess
We say this to people all the time. Love you. Yet it’s the hardest thing to say to ourselves. ⠀
🙅♀️ Loving yourself does not make you self-centred. ⠀
🙅♀️ Loving yourself does not make you a narcissist.⠀
🙅♀️ Loving yourself doesn’t always come easy. ⠀
💫 Loving yourself does make life better⠀
💫 Loving yourself greatens your ability to love others⠀
💫 Loving yourself is central to being happy and fulfilled in your life exactly as you are ⠀
💫 Loving yourself empowers you to creat a life you love⠀
💫 Loving yourself empowers you. ⠀
So tell me, how comfortable are you in saying that you love yourself?

A part from a little live edit I did earlier in the day, link in bio. Available for stream/download.
...and here it is — YES 🙌🏽 My soul purpose is to help others to live a better life. I have 43 years of lessons learnt and a really really strong intuition. Yes I live by feel + gut!
I am a natural born helper, giver, lover + leader. I still have some blocks that I am working through every single day, and everyday I surprise myself. I am beyond grateful that I have finally found my soul purpose — thank you so very much, I am so freakin’ excited ♡
Thanks for sharing this one GF @angelclare_melton

nothing about me is perfect, except knowing I don't have to be perfect..
Your dream is worth it. Keep climbing. Keep making moves. ⛰ 🙌🎯
6 months ago I quit my full time job to be a yoga teacher 🙏🏻
It took me years to get to that point.
Years of anxiety and depression, fear, social pressure and conditioning had led me to believe that being a yoga teacher was just not possible for me.
In my heart, I knew I had a deeper purpose. I yearned from my very core to lead, transform and teach others. And yoga had profoundly changed my life.
It took endless attempts to get pregnant that woke me up. Our failure to procreate actually became the biggest blessing of my life.
One day, I got my period and said ‘right, that’s it. I’m going to be a yoga teacher, quit my job and live the life I’ve always wanted to live’.
And I have never looked back.
I was living in so much fear. But guess what? Fear isn’t real! The love, the dreams, the manifesting, the joy, THAT is the real us. It is our birthright to live our best life. To live with our hearts. Our soul.
So that thing you want to do? Do it. Step out of fear and jump into love. It’s way more fun 😉

⚡️The Irony of Change⚡️
One day it may be sunny,
On another it may rain,
Like the unpredictably of weather,
Things in life will always change.
Why are we continually so resistant,
To something we are constantly exposed,
Why is it so difficult sometimes,
To finally learn to just let go.
Patterns that make us happy,
Ones that make us sad,
It seems we desire familiarity,
We want something that we’ve had.
Grasping, holding, desperately coddling,
Wishing that all will be the same,
But how can we grow in life?
If we want everything to be so tame.
Like a child learning to walk,
Branching out can feel so alien,
But if you don’t believe and take that step,
The past’s grip is as strong as titanium.
Feel, think, believe and trust,
It’s all within your strength of will,
Your desires are within your reach,
Let your inner voice guide your skill.
Suddenly you behold the truth,
Your heart races with the realization,
That to enjoy the beauty of this life,
You must be open to this revelation.

✧ Rainy day. Wild hair. Imperfect skin. Big mug of cacao. As cozy as can be.
This is how you’ll usually find me.
I keep trying to convince myself that in order to make a difference, I’m “supposed” to show up with perfectly done hair, a face full of makeup, and dressed in the most professional clothes. But all of that would be completely out of alignment with who I am behind the scenes day by day.
It’s more real for me to show you this side - the day to day me when I feel the most like myself.
I *love* to throw on a dress and curl my hair every now and then, but I feel the most embodied and free when I’m barefoot and as cozy as possible.
Showing up like this is showing you the real me, the behind the scenes me, the me that feels at home in my skin, and makes no apologies for who I am.
I spent the majority of my life feeling completely unlovable, unworthy, and not enough, and after thirty something years, I decided that I was no longer willing to spend my precious energy believing those lies.
And the more I feel into my intentions as I step into this calling to help you shift your life, I realize the most empowering thing I can teach you is that regardless of your past, you are a magical creator who can consciously choose to strip away all of your masks and step into your most embodied, nourished, aligned version of yourself.
Woman - you get to make the rules!
And the more you step into knowing you are worthy of pleasure, worthy of love, worthy of joy, worthy of magic, the more you’ll realize you were worthy all along - and that’s when life gets really, really good ;)
Following your heart can come with many sacrifices, and you must be prepared for the judgements and opinions of others. If you have reached a point in your life where you do want to change, you need to be prepared that not everyone will be willing to come along for the ride. Your passion and enthusiasm may sometimes get you into trouble with those who don’t share it. Some people will be ready to pounce and criticise you for many reasons. You can either let the Negative Nigel's affect you or you can use what they have to say to empower you to want to travel your path even more...your choice. Remember, you are the architect of your life.
If you find yourself in a negative headspace, you have fallen under the spell of the ego. It sits comfortably in its recliner in the theatre of fear eating an apple, doing its job. If the opposite of truth is lies that must mean you are buying the bullshit. Do not fret. There is an antidote.
Remember the truth about you- that is the opposing force that will bring you back to you again. Can you remember a time you were a part of something wonderful and you made a difference? Something that just lit you right up?
If you’re not ready for this and you’d rather throw tomatoes 🍅 at this message, that’s okay. But keep in mind this isn’t an accident you are reading this. It’s a call. A call for you to step up to the plate and decide. Keep throwing tomatoes if you need to...until you get so exhausted you don’t want to throw anymore. You got this and your truth is your freedom. #liveyourtruth #personalfreedom #lighterlife #emotionalfreedom #awakening @living_light_coach
I recently bought purple shampoo. Just in case you were worried, it doesn't make my hair bright purple, but a soft lavender. I tested it out at the cottage just to be sure I didn't freak anyone out.
I know, for some of you it's as wild and crazy as having breakfast for dinner, but hear me out. I have corporate clients and a professional image to uphold! 😂
You know what? It was fun and I may just try it on for real in public. Why? I suppose to let my creative (and slightly rebellious) side out. Plus, it's not permanent and doesn't hurt so that's always a bonus.
What do you do to unleash your fun side?
✨Important mercury retro update ✨
I wouldn’t say mercury is direct. Yet I wouldn’t exactly say it’s retrograde right now either. It is stationing and when it “turns” or “changes direction” it is very normal to feel VERY tired or any other symptom in your physical body because your energy body is feeling the waves of energy before your mind know what it is. Today is important. Listen to your soul. Listen to your wisdom. Listen to any information that comes your way. Nothing is by accident.
Mercury is in the process of of going direct but It’s not a switch that turns on and off and hooray all is good all is fine. Energy is not like that. That’s the logical linear mind. Energy is the gray area in between. There is also a shadow period after where it takes time to go back over the same territory it just went over before it moves into new territory. This shadow period will be until Sep. 2nd. That means what I mentioned in posts a while back. Look to mid September (ish) for energy to start changing in new exciting ways. We are still under mars retrograde right now (until aug 27) hence my September and on comments. Please be aware that doesn’t mean amazing things can’t happen until then. Don’t even go there. (I know you just did! 🙃). Please stop thinking things like that. It’s this change in consciousness that will change your entire human existence. Amazing things happen every second. We are just in a different vibe in September-ish
For now. Rest. Enjoy. Listen in. I just took a nap and my deceased grandmother Visited me. I felt the most amazing energy over me And it was her giving me a hug telling me all will be fine and also showing me what she feels now.
Feel into today. Let the magic of mercury who is the messenger deliver what you need to hear. ⭐️✨💕
You are the most important project that you will ever work on... Self-Study, Self-Discipline, Self-Care, Self-Awareness, SELF-LOVE, Self-Respect. ❤️
