Standing tall like these palm trees 🌴🌴
Have a great Tuesday!
Parenting doesn’t get easier, in fact it gets harder. This past year (August to May, so academic year) I learned a lot of hard lessons.
For some reason, there are people who WANT to see your child fail. People who will strategically do everything in their power to see her fail.
I’m learning as a mama to balance between my own integrity and protecting my child.
If this is what it’s like at 8, I don’t even want to know what the teen years bring!
Our DAD = Daring, Adventurous, Dad! .
He asks, “Do you want to live a safe life or do you want to live a happy life?” This is an actual choice. 🤔
You can either live a super, safe totally unfulfilling life, or you can be happy. The reality is the under the radar version of you, you’ve convinced yourself it’s better not to get punched than to STAND TALL & GROW! 💪🏼
Are you going to take some punches if you decide to push your head up & actually be above the radar? You bet you are! 👊🏼
The punches, the RESILIENCY, & the GROWTH that comes from them - a bigger & better version of yourself is the way that you become a BETTER VERSION OF YOU! 🙌🏼
You have to choose: do you want to BE SAFE or do you want to BE HAPPY? 🧐 You cannot be both. You cannot grow in your comfort zone! 👍🏼
All growth takes place OUTSIDE OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE! 💯
THANKS DAD for teaching us to stand tall & grow, GET UNCOMFORTABLE & take some punches to become the BEST VERSIONS OF OURSELVES & LIVE A HAPPY LIFE! ❤️
The WORLD IS OUR KINDERGARTEN & OUR TEACHER! 🌍

Getting on the bus this morning to go to my second therapy session really took it’s toll. I didn’t want to go because I’m still digesting everything from the intake session. My talk doctor is absolutely lovely and she has fantastic methods but she also knows how to ask the questions that will leave the most impact. Again, a good thing, but I’m dealing with a lot of; as much as I hate the word, trauma, from my past and it’s emotionally exhausting. I’m happy I’m finally taking this step, especially having a psycho-analysis therapist (I believe that’s what they’re called... I dunno) tell me I was essentially making everything up. Since then I’ve been scared to get help, but this is the beginning of me finally getting stronger. Been super emotional but it’s going to be worth it in the end.

Stand tall in who you are...we all have gifts to give to the world, and our job is to discover those gifts and own them and share them with others. 💜
I've always naturally gravitated toward health, nutrition and fitness. I learned so much ever since I was a teenager about nutrition and working out, and I'm stepping into the role of leader, educator, and supporter. I'm excited and love who I am, who I'm becoming and where my life is at and where it's headed. 💜💜💜

How do you take up space on your mat? For most Hatha Yoga practitioners, our mat defines our boundaries. Does your mat fit your body or do you try to squeeze your body into the boundaries of your mat? Do you ever turn around on your mat making the back the front? If your mat doesn’t fit your body, replace it with one that does! If you’ve never made circles on your mat, give this flow a try. It can freshen up your practice to move around the mat in new ways☀️ .
How do you take up space in your life? Do you make yourself smaller to fit into the boundaries you (or others) have created? Do you try to squeeze yourself into an identity, label, body image, job, or lifestyle others have determined for you? It’s time to take up more space on and off the mat. Stand proudly, speak truthfully, practice frequently, breath deeply, share graciously, love fiercely, forgive unconditionally. 🙏

"How come my heart break isn't loud enough?" Something major needs to change on this planet! I have been grieving for years over bullshit I have felt helpless against! It seems like Shit gets worse before it gets better.. time after time... Event after event... it is supposed to look or eventually be considered "normal"? Hate will never be normal!!! You know what seperates a human from a beast? Love... The heart break on this planet is unbelievably hard to handle at times... Some humans have no humanity left... There is so much trouble going on at a time it is difficult to believe we live on a planet where greed and power is in control... When will humans be pure again? Have the day you deserve gente!!!😒🙇💔 stay focused and always look forward to better days... I love you without knowing you... #prayforsudan #staysafe #protecteachother #standtall #fightforfreedom #savethechildren #prayforpeace #heart

Channeling my inner direwolf 🐺
SADNESS THE MONSTER. How beautiful is their work?? #standtall
Wrapped up this trip basking in all her glory 🌝 absolutely stunning watching the full moon rise above the oceans horizon 🌊✨
I return all that doesn’t serve me.
I dismiss all that weighs me down.
I am a light ready to shine.
I am a healer.
I will rise.
🤔🤔 i honestly hate this is something we truly debate.....ive interviewed candidates with natural hair/dreads and thought they were a great cultural fit based on experience and the interview.....only to hear they didnt make it through the next step due to not being "polished properly" i left that company immediately‼‼ i
●Vezzo o contenuto●
•Cosa può celarsi dietro un vezzo•
Per tanto tempo ho desiderato una cosa semplissima che potrebbe sembrare una necessità ridicola:
"Camminare con la borsa a tracolla", poter disporre con facilità e senza troppe manovre delle infinite cose che mi servono e che mi porto sempre dietro, sentirmi più degna più forte della mia posizione.
Seduta su una sedia le cose si complicano, le scelte ricadono sì, sempre su dimensione e comodità ma in un'altra prospettiva.
Quando cammini in sedia a rotelle, le tue mani sono impegnate e hai solo due opzioni: Mettere la borsa nel retro (cosa non sicurissima se ti muovi sola..), metterla a tracolla davanti facendo attenzione che non disturbi il movimento delle braccia che muove le ruote.
La mia scarsa agilità mi permetteva in questo caso borse di modeste dimensioni, cosa per me terribile visto tutto quello che sentivo la necessità di portarmi dietro.
Oggi posso finalmente godermi questo vezzo. Attualmente preferisco le borse di grandi dimensioni, la cosa paradossale è che gli infiniti oggetti che prima sentivo assolutamente neccessario portarmi dietro, stanno riducendosi a pochi ed essenziali, le borse (inteso come concetto più ampio) mi servono sempre meno, oggi la cosa primaria è assolutamente camminare.
Tempo fà ho letto un articolo che mi ha impressionata, secondo Karen Pine, autrice del Mind What You Wear: The Psychology Of Fashion” l'atto del possedere e indossare una borsa di lusso nasconde una fragilità interiore. Viene visto insomma come un mezzo per riparare le ferite emotive del passato, aggrappandosi e ostentando il potere d’acquisto del presente, che rappresenta un moto di certezza verso la condizione sociale. Ci si sente amabili detto in parole povere... Morale a parte non posso negare che il vezzo, analizzato e collocato, rimane comunque piuttosto piacevole!
