Perspective, where is yours?
How can you speak with a certainty that your words will be valued. Listen.
What you hear from someone else's perspective can be:
- of someone they have mirrored.
- of someone but they have added a touch of their own.
- or of their own.
So how do you find your own. This is something I'm in constant debate with and I think that's the answer. Always question yourself and be open to many mini world's each of us have created within our minds. I've shared this quote before: "I truly believe the intention of creating positive change is so important to the collective consciousness. When you have a group of people that have the intention and the capacity, talent, and intelligence to actualize those intentions, then you have something really powerful." - Jimmy Chin ( jimmy_chin )
To step out of the world you have created, you can return don't worry :) but we need to understand the importance of knowing what is happening and what you can do as an individual to better yourself therefore allowing growth in others.
If you read this, thank you, it means alot for you to be able to take a few minutes and consider my perspective.
Thank you for being you and have a wonderful day or night wherever you might be 🤗🌱💚

Traveled coast to coast this week for a work conference. I was totally focused on connecting with the people around me and being present with them. These are people I usually only connect with digitally (slack, zoom, etc.), so it was a nice change to be physically present. .
It also meant that I was totally disconnected from my phone and the rest of the world, which wasn't really a bad thing! Did I miss any significant world events? 😜
See this world as a free world, and see everyone in it as trying - through their individual experiences - to find their way back to that calling, back to that Source Energy. And even though there are billions of them going about it in a way that is different than you would choose, there's no right or wrong way. In other words, bless them all, and get on with the only thing you have any power about, which is opening or closing your vortex to your natural state of Well-Being. @abrahamhicks
I promise I’m feeling more festive than the colour of my outfit suggests😇
Heading out this evening for the work Christmas party with my fav gym rats. Just a lil reminder that it is A-OK to swap meal prep for pizza and BCAAs for wine if you so desire. Let ya hair down and enjoy yourself boo. Don’t overthink these things, you’ll only ruin it for yourself🤷🏼♀️💛
For anyone concerned I am single handedly destroying the Deaf World.... first of all, mind your own. And second, I am an immigrant to your land. I found myself there and embraced it all with gusto. I *have* Deaf identity. That doesn’t just vanish. But who I was before my injury also doesn’t just vanish. I live between two worlds and cultures. It works for me. I have a cochlear implant, AND I am Deaf. Good gracious! #GrowUp

“Care about what other people think and you will always be their prisoner.” – Lao Tzu
Of course… it’s human nature to want to be liked and accepted. Get out of line and walk against the crowd… people are going to look at you, think you’re crazy and talk crap.
Gossip is what insecure people do.
Trash talking what others are trying to accomplish is what closed-minded people do.
Caring about what others think of you can be so draining that it interferes with your ability to feel comfortable with yourself and around others. Do not let other peoples’ assumptions prevent you from living your life to the fullest potential and here is why:
1. It’s Not Their Life, So It’s None Of Their Business. This is your life to live, not theirs.
2. They Don’t Know What’s Best For You because nobody will ever be as invested in your life as you and that entails learning from your own choices.
3. What’s Right For Someone Else May Be Completely Wrong For You. Someone’s opinion is based on what they would do and that’s a problem. What is best for somebody else, can be the worst thing for you.
4. It Will Keep You From Your Dreams because if you are constantly worried about what other people think, you will never get to where you need to go in life.
5. You’re The One Stuck With The End Result and the consequences of your decisions - not someone else.
6. People’s Thoughts Change On A Regular Basis. That means even if somebody does think badly of you at the moment, there is a good chance they will think differently in the near future.
7. Life Is Too Short. You only have one life to live, so why would you spend it worrying about other people’s opinions?
8. Others Don’t Care As Much As You Think. It is a sad but simple truth that the average person filters their world through their ego, meaning that they think about most things in terms of “me” or “my”.
9. The Hard Truth: It’s Impossible To Please Everybody. Period. It is impossible to live up to everyone’s expectations so there is no point in burning yourself out trying to do so. Just make sure that one of the people you please is yourself!
Give up what you cannot change.
Give in if you feel that's the best option to move on.
And give all you've got for something you believe in💛
ABOUT LAST NIGHT: Christmas cups. Pistachio ice-cream “Grinch” milkshakes. Precious boys in matching Christmas pajamas. It’s a beautiful photo. Looks kind of perfect right? The reality was I was a grumpy Mcgrumppants last night. Irritable, impatient, and overwhelmed. I have a tendency to put too much on my plate and expect too much of myself (and sometimes others, to be honest). Ten days before Christmas and I don’t have a single present wrapped for the boys under the tree. I’m trying to keep up with all the Christmas traditions we’ve done in the past but I’m beginning to think I can’t. Between working full time and having the boys only half of what I’m used to, it’s hard to squeeze it all in. And that’s with the immense help I get from my awesome family and friends. How does one slow down and enjoy what really matters in the midst of major life transitions? How do I let go of perfection and expectations that are too high? How do I make room for grace and mercy when I just want to do it right and can’t keep up? #honestypost #sendhelp #singlemomstruggles #givemejesus #christmas2018
. Sounds easy, right. Guess what, it isn't. People love to throw phrases around that they read on Facebook. Feel the #meaning
behind it? No. I heard this and other phrases before, but I'm just slowly learning to actually feel them. It's a long #journey
I'm on, but it's the right one. You'll have #collateraldamage
along the way of #selfdiscovery
told me. My social workers asked me to be cautious of possible bachkash I might receive when I stand my ground. Open up to my feelings, voicing my needs. They were right. I knew in the back of my head as well. #selfsacrifice
is what I did all my life. Living the life for others than myself. Besides my parents nobody actually demanded this... Well, maybe my #Ex
. But seriously: Fack him. Sure, I let that #sexualabuse
happen. SURE, I let #mentalabuse
happen, but I never asked for it. Also I never asked anybody to take advantage of me or my situation. I'm learning that it's OK to be angry. It's OK to admit being a #victim
. I am not #desperate
anymore. I am not ashamed anymore. Yet, strangely I still feel the need to explain myself. Still afraid people won't believe me. A lot of people do, but #rape
is such a sensitive topic MANY don't understand. Are scared of even, because this is something that doesn't happen in their life. They shut it out. For me, it is reality. When the #metoo
movement started, I was like yeah. I thought I was alone with that. I am male, how could this happen to me? The truth is, the #abuse
starts with a No. If it doesn't end there, it's #abuse
. I want and am getting better. Holding on...
Negativity? Hate? Intolerance? Judgey? Nay sayers? Doubt? Fear? Don’t like me? HI, I DONT CARE. THANKS. Listen, not everyone is going to agree with you all the time. Opinions will differ. Some may try to bring you down. Insult you. Manipulate truths. Back bite. Who cares?!? You do you Boo Boo! As long as Jesus is behind me, I don’t care about anything else. #jesussaves #hesmyking #dance #idontcare #bethelight #youdoyou #love #bekind #beawesome
= Trust your instincts, you know your gut is always right. Who cares what they think? You don't need anyone's approval. #youdoyou
Movement and being outdoors are two of my favorite things. In my ideal life, my morning would start with a walk, then I would eat, then work out, then take a nap and then go hiking 🥾 or stand up paddle boarding 🏄♀️ or something similar. Call me obsessed but that’s the way I feel. Given that I had all the 💰 time and a body that could handle all that this is what I’d do 😀
### I know a lot of people who have been overtrained or have a terrible relationship with food because they starved themselves or binged, or overexercised to punish themselves, absolutely HATE exercise now. To the point where they say that it’s actually okay to not move... I disagree but that’s a topic for another day.
I absolutely love movement, just that at one point I did so much of it that I got really tired and messed up my body a bit.
I’ve learned that I need to be more careful but it’s hard to forget if the nature around you is so freakin beautiful and you can’t wait to see the next awesome thing.
Current status: Snuggled with the pups, reading a book with a mug of coffee, and ignoring the cold rain outside.
What’s your Saturday look like?
In my stories, I share (ok, let’s be honest here...overshare...because I don’t know when to stop talking 🤦🏼♀️) lots of details on this cozy room in my home! It’s not big or fancy, but it’s ours, and we live lots of life in this room.
I hope that I can always encourage others here that no matter how big or small your home is, or what kind of budget you have, you can add cozy touches to it and make your space feel like your own ♥️ It’s so easy to scroll through all these pretty squares and feel like you don’t add up, or feel like you have to go out and buy this, or you have to change “that” about your home because it’s what’s “on trend”. Nope nope nope. I’m preaching to myself here too, because I’m constantly fighting falling into this trap. Sometimes I stop and ask myself, “If I had never seen this on Instagram, would I ACTUALLY want to buy this for my home, or would I ACTUALLY want to make these changes, or is it just a desperate attempt to try and “keep up with the Jone’s”? When Instagram crosses over in your (my) life from inspiration to desperation, it’s not a healthy place to be anymore. Because you see friends, even if we catch up with the Jones, there is ALWAYS going to be someone else who has a fancier house, and prettier decor and a bigger budget. “Keeping up” is a lie and a trap. Let’s all commit to really just “doing us”. We don’t need to be like everyone else. The whole point of decorating is NOT to impress people on IG, but to create a space you love, that your family loves. A space that really feels like “home”. Have an awesome weekend friends!!! Christmas will be here and gone in a blink, so soak it up ♥️
Self-forgiveness- Instead of feeling guilty if you miss a workout, forgive yourself in advance for any future slip up in your journey. Then when you drop the ball, you can just pick it up, move on, and give it your best shot tomorrow.
Happy Anniversary ANAIS & JON!! It’s hard to believe this was already a year ago! One year down forever to go ❤️ Photo by @allisonjeffersphotography
Went on my very first 👠spree at @stevemaddenindia
& apart from these stunning designs (scroll right & look at that piece of absolute beaut I got) in all sizes possible, the people at Steve Madden were so warm, welcoming & inclusive. Couldn’t have a more comfortable experience, I mean imagine a guy shopping for heels in India is still considered a taboo? Hello it’s almost 2019 FTW, you do you okay 💋//

Getting artsy for Mom’s bday! Notice how Clay went rouge 😄😎 #youdoyou
Never forget where you came from or from where you began... 🌱🥀🌹
With the end of yet another year fast approaching, you may be thinking of all things you DIDN'T accomplish this year... and that's OKAY! It's normal to feel disappointed. However, #bossbabes
don't have time to wallow, so instead of brooding about until January 1st, do this instead:
Write down any and everything you DID accomplish this year from beginning to end! Any highlight, any memory, anything that made you feel good! Reflect on all the good you've done this year because I'm sure you have, and then think of how your success from 2018 will impact 2019!!! 🎉🎉🎉
Then yes, start writing down some REALISTIC goals for the new year, and make a PLAN for each one! You got this, Boss Babe! Remember the roots you planted this year so you continue to bloom in the next!

“You will never be criticized by anyone doing more than you- you will only be criticized by those doing less!”🔥🔑💯🙏🏼
Knocked out a conversational 6 miles this morning via @phoenixrunning
s epic marathon training plan! Stats in my story!🏃🏃
Message of the day is all about dealing with the criticism of others! The purpose of my business is to develop and empower others- well when you begin to develop and level up your life you will ABSOLUTELY deal with criticism from other people. 👀😉
My reps have already began dealing with it, I’ve dealt with it myself with people from other companies I used to work with in the Tradeshow scene, it’s just a reality of life that you’re going to have to deal with at some point or another.💪🏼🙌🏼👍🏼
There are 2 important concepts to understand when dealing with negative criticism;👇🏼👇🏼
1- You will NEVER be criticized by anyone that is doing more than you. You will only be criticized by those doing less.🔑🔑🔑
2- Understand that when someone criticizes you- they are telling you more about them then you! Criticisms come from a place of insecurity and unhappiness. The person that is making the statement is, deep down, insecure with themselves and their personal situation- so they project that on to you to feel better about themselves. 💯💯💯
When you internalize and truly understand those 2 concepts- you’ll learn how to never let others negative criticism affect you! You will simply wish them well, and continue on your path of purpose and impact!
Today we leave the beautiful Ella and my mesmerizing balcony view 💔
The last 6 weeks here have been unreal. So many adventures. Sunrise and sunset hikes up the mountains, drinking THE freshest tea, eating the best vegan food, making friends with all of the stray puppers, cooking classes, yoga, meditating, feeling fitter than I have in months, waking up to monkeys on the balcony, walking along the train tracks, drinking fresh coconuts, watching live music, being an ant whisperer, getting attacked by leeches, making relationships with a lot of the locals and making memories with them that I will never forget.
I started my business here, grew massively as a person in such a short space of time because I filled my time reading and listening to books and content that have given my life so much value and I have smashed some personal goals. I have learnt how to be present and reaped the benefits from doing so.
Time to move onto our next adventure, a few days at the beach and then home for Christmas 🎄
