It is with heavy hearts that we must announce Arcite is to be no more. The decision has not been an easy one to make but unfortunately it has been on the cards for quite some time now. Without going into too much detail about personal lives, we feel we should explain this decision as best we can. After all, it is because of you reading this that we have survived this long after a decade of support.
Priorities change. Musical tastes change. Life changes. Work is a necessary evil. Small humans are created. Vans need to have valid MOTs. Trying to keep a band with five individual members each with five very different lives engaged in a band is tricky at the best of times. This band has brought members, both past and present, together like brothers. We think of each other as family and that is possibly the greatest thing anyone can ask for.
In our ten year career we have seen and done things that none of us ever thought would happen in our wildest dreams growing up. We have released one EP and two albums. We have played with some of our favourite artists and bands in venues we watched the same bands in as teenagers. We have toured the UK several times and had the time of our lives, we never made it to Europe but it is not for want of trying. We’ve made friends for life and learned a lot on the way.
Perhaps there is some bitterness in this next statement but it is a statement made from perseverance and determination rather than the lack of. Any band that “makes it” is nothing short of a miracle. We are truly grateful for everything you guys have helped us to achieve. We understand this may be disappointing to you guys - trust us when we say it is just as, if not more disappointing to us. You all waited patiently for our new album for so long. We sat on that album for years waiting for the right time to release and the reality just never came. We put the album out on our own and can still hold our heads up high. It is an album written at a very turbulent time for all of us. It’s no understatement that that album cycle helped us as individuals in more ways than one.
Final show announcement coming soon.

Once I stopped trying to meet the expectations of others, I was able to sit down and have an honest conversation with myself about my own wants and needs. — We need to do this from time to time so we can make sure we are staying on track towards our goals and the dreams we have for our lives. — Somewhere along the way, we lose sight of what our purpose is and we find ourselves working to support someone else’s dream, or catering to people who do not give us the same in return. — We do not have to settle for what does not feel right to us. Whether that is in regard to a career, a relationship, a friendship, or a routine that has gotten comfortable...if it is not serving the person that you want to be, you have every right to be honest about its role in your life. — We have the choice to want better for ourselves! Let’s stop settling for “okay” situations and only allow in the kinds of people and changes that will help you in the betterment of who you are. — If you are doing little things each day to be better than who you were yesterday, you will always be proud of the person you have worked hard to become. — Thank you for reading. So much love for you ♥️ — Tomorrow is YEAR 3 of recovery. I cannot believe it has already been 1,096 days. I will be sharing a post about it 😊 ➡️ HealingHopefuls.com — #InMyOwnWords #MeganLawrence

It's good to keep in mind that my social media presence isn't entirely accurate in terms of depicting all the aspects of my life – in many cases in depicting the majority of my life. As I sit here on the floor folding my children's laundry, I opt to take a somber and silly selfie as a way of reminding myself about the dichotomy that is my life. Everyone is far more multi faceted than their social media suggests. In my case, it's never quite evident how most of my days go – including quiet days like today where I am home alone doing domestic chores and daddy duties. I can't complain about my career and my life – no – but I felt it necessary today to remind everyone here on Instagram that we are also human. We have fears and desires, dreams and ambitions, and all want to be seen for who we are. We want to be loved and respected – because who doesn't? We crave affirmation while equally denouncing such a yearning. We defiantly declare that we should be accepted for who we are and not try to become who others wish us to be – all while making often outrageous efforts to present ourselves in the best possible light, recurrently at the detriment of dignity and decorum. As an artist my efforts on a daily basis are twofold: to satisfy myself and to satisfy the world. Confirmation of self-worth from outside sources is just as vital as a deep rooted belief in one's own value. Social media often makes us forget that we're alive – so don't forget to be in the present and embrace the rockstar and the common man that you equally are.

Dear @kendalljenner, We appreciate your candor in your recent interview for Love Magazine about the importance of mental health and your struggle to maintain a healthy work-life balance. We also understand that some of your original comments might not represent fully what you meant ... Dear @kendalljenner,

We appreciate your candor in your recent interview for Love Magazine about the importance of mental health and your struggle to maintain a healthy work-life balance. We also understand that some of your original comments might not represent fully what you meant and may have been taken out of context. Nonetheless, we wanted to explain why many models reacted the way they did.

Many working and aspiring models — girls who aspire to have a career as successful as yours — struggle with various abuses on the job in what remains a largely unregulated industry. Sexual harassment and assault, pressures to lose weight, late and nonpayment, relentless work hours, and excessive, unexplained fees that leave models working in debt to their agencies are among the many problems that models routinely face. Unfortunately, despite our organization’s efforts over the last several years to address these concerns, we have faced significant pushback from the industry — and models’ fears of retaliation for speaking out about the abuses they suffer are very real.

The good news is that we have the solution: the RESPECT Program. RESPECT is a global, industry-wide initiative to ensure that everyone working in the fashion industry is treated with dignity and respect on the job. Your agency and other companies in the industry have the opportunity to join RESPECT, a program that over 100 models, including many of the industry’s leading names, publicly support. (You can read our open letter and learn more about the program at programforrespect.org.) We believe that if companies are serious about ensuring a safe and respectful work environment, they will be willing to commit to enforceable standards, with real teeth.

We welcome the opportunity to speak with you about this initiative and we would appreciate your support in helping us create safe and fair working conditions for all.

Sincerely,
Model Alliance

Get up in the morning, get home at night, try to exercise in-between and fill the weekends with adventures, dinner with friends and occasional movie nights.
Isn’t it the weirdest thing—we grow up, go to school, graduate and then get a job and pretty much follow the same concept with the only difference of getting paid.
I guess you can call yourself one of the lucky ones if you actually work in a field you are passionate about. Thus far we have been traveling the world, collecting memories and inspirations and have finally turned our passion into our career, yet I still feel like I am currently working my life away. I always hear that balance is the key, but I personally find this to be the hardest thing. Nash and I are both perfectionists and we don’t like to leave work unfinished or do things half hearted. We like to go all in. But what I do love about hard work are the results.
Is anyone else struggling to find a Balance in life?

We are currently packing up for yet another cross country move as we near the end of our first baseball season together as a family. Amongst the road trips, time apart and prepping to move, there is absolute beauty in the moments like we had today. We went to State College and got to see where Ty began his professional baseball career 5 years ago. Jax got to run around Penn State and eat donuts 🍩. Conway laughed hysterically as Jaxon played peek a boo with him. I looked at each of my boys full, completely in the moment, feeling grateful that amongst all the challenges we seem to constantly face, I have a heart full of genuine love ❤️ We may not know what tomorrow holds, where we will be living next, or where our careers will go, but we have each other, and that’s rich in my book.

I am so grateful for this sweet little boy fam of mine & our beautiful journey full of humbling lessons. Thank you, thank you, thank you 🙏🏾✨

This is one of those surreal moments....⠀⠀
When your team hits a goal you’ve been working toward for TWO years. When it is a goal that isn’t just about “my” business but about how every amazing woman on our team is doing and the integrity and passion we have. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
You see the last three years have NOT been easy. I didn’t actually start this at first to quit my job or because I was at a goal weight or social media expert- far from it. There has never been a time when it’s been working in cracks of mommin’ or working full time. There hasn’t been a year that hasn’t had failures!⠀
Through:⠀⠀
Working full time and travel.⠀⠀
Pregnancy and miscarriage.⠀⠀
One baby. Then two.⠀⠀
Job changes and family stuff. ⠀⠀
Good times and bad.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Life has come and gone over the last three years, but at the core of it has been becoming the best version of me — so I can take on anything that life throws at me while being the best wife, mom, friend, sister and daughter I can be for those I love most. It gets me so fired up to see women changing their lives through living healthy lifestyles and doing so in community with others.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Three years ago I picked up a workout program, learned how to eat, and followed a plan with other women doing the same thing. Within weeks, I knew this was something I wanted to be a part of forever.⠀⠀ Since then, I’ve been sharing my story every day. The good and the bad. The imperfections. The journey out of my career in higher education to becoming a full time #mompreneur. To being a #boymom and then having this little miss who doesn’t sleep and all the transitions with that.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
It’s been an absolute heck of a three years but I’m so grateful for this amazing community of women around because it’s THEY who has inspired me every day to show up, to better myself, and to keep pushing forward even on the days it’s hard. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
If you’re looking for freedom, community, accountability, and a sisterhood of support, my team starts our new coach mentorship next week. ⠀⠀
Why not you?⠀⠀
Why not 2019?⠀⠀
Why not get in shape AND help others AND make an impact for your family?⠀
If you’re ready, I’m here to do this with you friend. Link is in my bio or comment below!

A big Happy Birthday shout out to the superstar that is my little sister, one of the most natural pen smiths Ive ever met and the princess of @unstoppablemusicgroup @niav_official - since I met you 3 years ago we have formed an unbreakable bond. the journey has been crazy so far! From recording in Edgeware to writing with some of the worlds top producers in The LA hills. Traveling in Europe and the US for sessions!
Your growth has been amazing not just as a writer but as a person. I’ve been there when you were at you’re lowest and I’m super proud of how you got over that period to be the woman you are now!
It’s fitting that you’re hitting the dirty thirties, entering a new period of life just as you are about to enter a new phase of your career. Like I said last week, your thirties are about to be the most memorable of your life. The phase where all your dreams come true. Don’t lessen your flame for anyone or anything, always make sure you shine bright and illuminate the room!! Super proud to be your manager, your friend and your big bro. Love you, now let’s go takeover the world a song at a time, like we said at the top of Runyon! 😉

Often it’s due to the military sending him away, but there have also been times I’ve been away for work and weddings. ✨
We’ve missed Valentines day together at least 3 times, my birthday, July 4th, New Years. He packed up our house to Hawaii alone, I unpacked it alone (twice). He’s now been deployed for 4 months and I’m living my life creating our child. He hasn’t felt any kicks or been to more than one quick appointment before he left.

Yet all of this changes nothing to me. It doesn’t affect for a moment how I feel about him. It doesn’t change the strength of our commitment to each other. I’ve never thought about a life without him. He has never made me feel like he doesn’t care. Because there have been an overwhelming amount of times we have been there for each other.

We met when I was 19 years old. 9 years ago now. We went to college together and he fit in with my best friends. I rescued him from college parties and visited him in Europe. We know each other from when we were both a bit more embarrassing.

He came to Nashville to live in my city and he took me to Washington D.C. to ask me if I would marry him. I moved to Pensacola and cried over leaving Music City for way too long. We became island locals and he supported my career and my passions. I watched him become a Marine Pilot. ✨
He was my favorite person long before he became my husband, and he has become the answer to what my forever means. He will be here when this kid pops out and I will be there for as long as we both shall live.

WHEW mushy stuff right there, when I get going ya. Happy anniversary to us

It is with great enthusiasm that I share with you all a venture I have been working on. *
If you know me or have followed my journey you will find that I am a person who truly appreciates life, the beauty in becoming and taking liberating leaps. We grow, we fall, we get back up and we evolve. Our lives are a series of doors we have specific keys to open. Some doors are not ours to open but as we navigate through to the ones meant for us, we must have the courage to turn the key. *
When I launched Billie Hilliard Lifestyle Accessories I imagined it’s success but I never imagined how big of an impact it would have personally on my customers. They have accepted me, believe in my brand, are empowered by it and live it. Now I want to do the same for other brands needing guidance and that added BH finesse. I’ve gotten good at what I do because I had to. Starting off there was no budget and no mentor. Now at this point in my career I want to be what I didn’t have. *
Today I am unlocking yet another door so after much hard work, constant inquiries and confirmations I am pleased to announce the launch of Billie Hilliard Consulting. Whether your company needs rebranding or you are just taking the leap, it is the most important element of your business and must never be approached haphazardly. Your brand is your companies conversation to the world. If just thinking about it sends you into a panic don’t worry, it’s not your thing but it is mine and I along with my team would love to help bring forth your authentic conversation.

Please go follow @BHconsultants click on the link in the bio to learn more and reach out to us. No company is too large or small. You are all welcome here. *

That is one of the reasons why we love homeschooling so much! We can do school and life anywhere we want and I believe it will give our kiddos such a rich learning experience! Tim left his job about 5 months ago and now gets to work freelance on website jobs he wants to do but isn’t tied to a 60 hr a week job which is the best thing ever! He is such a present and fun dad and I’m so happy the kids get to be around him so much more! Three years ago I decided to start a second career sharing my love of oils and natural health on top of having our bakery @sweetnsaucyshop and those days and nights were long but I knew what kind of life I wanted and it pushed me through the long nights. The path to get here wasn’t easy at all! We have made tons of sacrifices, had to make some big changes and giant leaps of faith along with hours and hours of hard work but it’s SO worth it! I can’t imagine the feeling of driving away on our first trip in June the 🚌 and being able to do adventure, work and school all within these walls!

Four years has flown by, but my career as a pro wakeboarder, traveling the world and living the dream... that feels like a lifetime ago...
What are some of the things I’ve learned in the last 4 years..?
.
Life can be cruel and unexpected, and people can be kind and generous.
.
The mind is powerful in both directions, positive and negative, but we have the power to dictate which way is stronger.
.
Happiness doesn’t need to be dictated by the circumstances of your life.
.
People love to help. I’ve had to learn to accept their help.
.
It’s important to know oneself on a deeper level. Habits, emotions, desires, feelings... to understand how ones brain works is truly powerful.
.
Emotions are natural, by allowing them in we have the opportunity to understand them, and then have power over them.
.
Life is a rollercoaster, ride it.
.
Love is everywhere.
.
My family are amazing.
.
My friends are fuckn awesome!
.
I am enough.

I was stuck in a cycle of “quickfix—backtrack—panic—repeat”, wondering where the woman was that I once knew I could become + where the life I knew I could live had gone.
.
(oh 👋🏻meh relationships, crushing bags of potato chips to ‘be healthy tomorrow’, bingeing on Netflix, showing up to a soulless job, having a way weird relationship with food, and always trying to fix myself... waiting + wishing for ‘someday’…🙄)
.
But here’s the thing…just a FEW years before that, I had felt fully in the moment in my life — there was excitement, adventure and not a care in the world about my body, career, or relationships (okay, a li’l bit because hello high school crushes). But I wasn’t held back, stuck, waiting, or defaulting. I was wild. brave. free. and ALIVE.
.
It wasn’t a “that’s nice, but not reality” — it had just been forgotten with time and the unfolding of life. I had forgotten.
.
IMPORTANT: Sometimes we get a little lost, confused, stuck or just forget (for a bit) the woman we actually are within. But, the beauty is we have the power to change it — deprivation, treadmills, + beating yourself up definitely not required. ✌🏻
.
I spent the last decade learning, testing, and re-designing my life to not “go back” but to design anew — to truly feed my soul, find my freedom, and love my life.
.
🙏🏻 And starting today, I wanna give you a little reminder of who you are + the life waiting for you RIGHT NOW… with a little design how-to.
.
5 days, 5 ways of living more by design than default.
.
Whether you want more freedom in your thoughts, confidence in yourself, or straight up more fun, joy, and purpose in your life… we often make it way harder than it needs to be.
.
This FREE 5-day #LiveByDesignChallenge makes it really easy {and way fun} for you to start.

Success is living a good, just and honorable life. Success is discovering and living in your purpose.
Money, fame and position can represent the trappings of success, but shouldnt be the definition of success. Ive seen too many people who have all the trappings but cant rest at night; real success should give you peace. Most successful movies are built on great characters. Same with our life, real success is all about having character built on strong morals and genuine integrity.
There is a lot of temptation for professionals in every industry to take the quick and easy path to success--to violate our values for a promotion or because no one will ever know. This is always a recipe for disaster in film and also in business. Maintaining the integrity of a film during development is key--this means not trying to turn a script from something it is (i.e. a drama) into something its not (i.e. a comedy). We all have ideals and beliefs that are the foundation of our integrity, yet we have a tendency to abandon what we believe in just to achieve results under the pressures of our jobs.
If you will do anything you can to succeed, even if it means betraying every principle and ideal you possess, in the end you might survive, but itll cost you more than you ever thought. By taking short cuts you are more likely to betray your own ethics and the people you care about and in the long run and increasing your chance of failing in the long term and possibly ruin your chances for success in your chosen field for the rest of your life. Sure, there are ways to work the system and take shortcuts--but take heed: the odds of that movie failing increase dramatically. And in the end, who really wants to rush a movie into production to only see it fail at the box office?
Dont take shortcuts. If you want to be true to your beliefs and who you are, then shortcuts do not exist. When you rush the development process in your career, you miss the opportunity to allow your character to develop. It takes time to learn how to manage people, make decisions and resolve conflicts. When you get something too soon or that

Whilst everyone is worried about the new season and panicking already. Le Professeur has been chillin in Corsica easing into transition. After media duties at the WC he has finally taken some time. In Corsica he casually spoke about his new life ‘I decided not to decide. But I quickly organised myself in this new stage of my life, I do a lot of sport, here I eat with my friends. I talk a lot too, I can sit for hours contemplating the horizon, I read every day, right now a book by Philip Roth called I Married a Communist.
He rejected the possibility of taking up another profession such as archeology or a career in politics.
“For archeology, I do not know enough about soil compositions. Nor politics. What I like about the job of a manager is that we have theories, but on Saturdays we have to show that they work and the result is immediate. In politics, between theory and proof by demonstration, things take a lot longer.”
This week he traveled Liberia to receive the west African country’s highest honour for his role in the development of the football career of president the great George Weah.
He will be given the Humane Order of African Redemption with the rank of Knight Grand Commander.
Enjoy Grand Commander you deserve it, the game is less cultured without you 🥂

So here i am today writing a Long one. I want to share how glad I am. Not only for how I look today, but because I am able to motivate those who used to struggle like how I did.
.
At first I thought this journey was for myself. But upon the “ask me anything” in Insta-story yesterday, it raises a lot attentions. Some actually came to me and said how motivating it was to them. So to those who reached out to me, I want to say thank you for reaching out. Please don’t hesitate to ask me if you have any questions. Do allow me to say a more words which came into my mind: .
.
To those who has took an earlier step before i do, congrats, you are very brave. .
.
To those who are yet to unlock this new path in your life, don’t be afraid. It’s just a process. Just like when you were young, you fall while learning to walk, you were afraid for your first driving test, you were afraid to make a big career decision in life. This is NO BUNGY JUMP. It is something that sticks with you for the rest of your life. So if you have decided, just don’t hesitate. Just be yourself. You will find difficult path along the way, but you will also find supportive people too. And Yes, I am here for you.
.
To those who aren’t sure if this is the path you want to be landing in, don’t rush for it. No peer pressure. No one is gonna laugh or say you’re timid. Because in the end of the day, it is still WHAT YOU WANT in your life. If you’re comfortable with it, then be proud with it. Don’t do it just because someone told you to. Throughout our journey, we always have someone we need to answer to - yes,our parents. If they can take it, that’s best. But if they can’t, don’t force the hell out of it. .
.
Love yourself for who and how you look. But of course, some exercise is always good for health. To those who wants to looks good in shape and size, you may want to consider to start. .
.
REMEMBER, there will always be those who are supportive. Thanks @jyn_p for always being supportive 😊

We closed out our year by doing a short headline run around Australia finishing up in Melbourne, hometown of our beloved tour manager @mrnew . He has been with us since the first ever headline tour we did, and very quickly became more than just a crew member to us. We are a band that has always preferred to work together like a little family, understanding that we are all as important as eachother and the show we deliver is a product of us all working well together and for eachother. This is something I think Newy brought to our team and it has helped mould us into the strong unit we are today. We have been through so much together and experienced some unforgettable moments that I’ll never forget but sadly its time for him to move on and take another big step with his career. Im proud of you Newy, and im so happy for you and your family. Good luck with your new travels in life and thanks for looking after us all so well. Love ya ❤️

You clean the house, it gets destroyed 5 minutes later.🤷🏻‍♀️ Laundry, dishes, yard work... it’s never ending. You work really hard to earn money, and in the blink of an eye, it’s spent on bills.💸 Too many of us train and eat clean to look better, but still aren’t 100% happy with ourselves. On top of that, there’s always a bigger house, newer car, more exciting career, more idyllic life we “could” have.
◾️
Of course, this is a terribly negative way to look at life - yet I’ve been guilty of doing so.😳 But God showed me something so obvious: if we are only living for THIS LIFE, and the happiness, success, riches, and fame that it offers, OF COURSE it’s futile. Why? Well, we know nothing on this earth will last forever. There’s not a single thing we can take with us when we die (1). I think it’s this subconscious knowledge that makes us grasp for control and live in constant anxiety that at any moment, we could lose it all (2).
◾️
Yet, there is FREEDOM in Christ. Freedom to live separated from striving and futility and emptiness. Freedom that comes from the TRUTH that our eternity is SECURE (3) and wonderful beyond anything we can imagine (4). Freedom in the realization that NOTHING can separate us from Christ’s love, or His PURPOSE for us except our own choice (5,6). Freedom in the understanding that every trial we endure, every good deed that goes unnoticed or unappreciated, will be rewarded by our Father in Heaven (7,8). Is this life futile? NO! Your life has an amazing purpose only YOU can fulfill. But living as if “this life is it,” IS futile (9).
◾️
Instead, live like every tough decision to stand for what’s right, every act of kindness, every responsibility you faithfully attend, will impact your ETERNITY (10). Because it does.😉

*
I remember one of my art mentors in high school told me that I would never become good artist, she was my ceramics instructor all 4 years, if didn’t choose to focus on 1 medium. Years later I was told I would never be able to make a full time living as an artist. When preparing for my first Creative Live class someone I admired told me that talking about ONLY documentary family photography would be a mistake.  When it was time to start trying to get pregnant doctors told us that due to my age there was a chance I might never get pregnant. Once we had a baby, we were warned that our lives would never be the same and that our traveling would have to come to an end.  If I had allowed these pieces of advice detour me I might’ve been writing this from the salad station directly behind the bar I’d still be working at. I’d be dipping cucumbers slices in the giant vat of chunky blue cheese dressing that’d been living in the walk-in for way past it’s expiration date with my left hand, and stumbling around the keyboard of my refurbished iPhone4 with my right.  Instead, I used this advice to propel me.
*
I just finished up my 2nd coaching session with @davidespeaks who has emphasized that I CAN be a professional speaker, that it IS possible, that my hard work WILL pay off.  I have made the decision to actively pursue a career in motivational speaking, alongside being a photographer.  I believe that my experience, my insight & everything I have learned both professionally and personally can crossover to a more global audience.  We have been working on my WHY. *
It took me a while to confidently identify my message but I know what it is and am now working on compelling talks to support and share this idea.  Ultimately, we must take ownership for the lives we currently have and recognize that we are the ones that steer the trajectory of our future. While we do not have control over everything that happens in our lives, we DO have control over how we respond to each and every moment.  I could’ve chosen to let the projections of other people’s fears prevent me from the life I have now. But I didn’t. I decided to jump into the pool head first.

Last year I got introduced to a counsellor and we have developed a strong friendship along the journey. By the time I met her, she just turned fifty.
Once i asked her “Do you always became friends with your clients?” She said “No, I actually rarely became friends with clients. I have met more than thousands of clients during my career. I could have died if I make friends with all of them. But there’re exceptions, like you. Because i feel it’s not just you learning from me, but I’m also learning from you. I teach you my professional skills and knowledge, while you gave me courage and positive impact to life. There’re people who only absorbing and taking away energy from others. But you gave people energy.”
We have our own way of getting with each other. Most of the time we’re just friends and we don’t talk about work. She can talk about anything as small as how she fights with her bad tenants or as big as what happens in her family and marriage. But when situation comes and we can quickly switch to counsellor and client mode. I’ll txt her and say I need help. I was always able to get back to where life should be, fully charged. And I pay her the rates what she deserves to earn.
I guess this is the perfect friendship. And it means trust.
I’ll be writing more and more articles about my personal growth in the future, alongside with my photography journey. Hopefully it can help more people. I know it will.

Two years ago in 2016, I was walking through my backyard when I took note of some ants carrying a crumb of bread. In observing them I realized how skilfully they maneuvered the terrain of the 4ft log they were journeying across to get to their ant hill on the other side, it was a sight to behold. After about 5 minutes they finally made it, a monumental feat it was, but then it was over. There was no procrastination in their journey, it was all about the task at hand. I sat there a while longer and just started to watch things move and change around me. Birds flew by, leaves fell from the trees, flies buzzed by my ears and the wind caressed my skin. I was having a moment of appreciation for everything that is life and in doing so the world seemingly paused in front of me for a split second...a grinding hault. Here is what that experience taught me. Everything is happening NOW.
Make haste while the sun shines because one day it will surely set on your life. Yea I know, not the sort of thing you want to be reminded of just like bills and taxes, that's until the government seizes and the bill collector comes knocking. I'll have to contradict myself to get my point across but bear with me, you'll understand in the end.
We'd like to think we have time, yes that fake unit of measurement which governs so much of our lives: birth, schooling, career, retirement and even death. What we call ‘time’ is just a method for measuring the ‘perpetual change and motion’ in the cycle of life. I know, I know, the societal conditioning is screaming *bullshit* but hear me out, let's take a walk.
All that exists is now, literally. There is no tomorrow, yesterday or even next week. Things change, cells multiply and cells die. What you remember as yesterday is a comparison of thoughts. What you think of as tomorrow is the pre-empting of thoughts-expectations. We are conditioned to focus on time, milestones and goals all the while forgetting that Now is the time, Now is The goal, Now is the milestone.
Yesterday is a memory and tomorrow is an expectation. Life is today, it is but a day. You were born today, you live today and you'll die today. Everything is happening right now. #art

HELLO! // You know how you start following someone on social media and you’re like, “Wait — so what exactly is this person’s work? What do they DO?” Well … this post is for all our NEWEST friends here, and I’m happy to properly introduce myself and my brand, and tell you who I am, professionally, and what we DO.
.

My name is Becky Higgins and memory keeping is my jam. ALL things memory keeping. Taking pictures, doing something WITH pictures, pairing pictures with stories, telling our stories, preserving our memories. All of it. So what sets us apart from any other company that has to do with memory keeping? Project Life®. It’s a game changer. It’s a solution to so many problems that scrapbookers face. This way of scrapbooking SIMPLIFIES the process and eliminates so much guesswork and, honestly, it’s the no-brainer way for anyone who has an interest in scrapbooking but feels overwhelmed, to START. It’s available in physical, digital (for computer), and app (for mobile devices) formats. This is the meat & potatoes of our business.
.
.
But we’re so much more than memory keeping. We’re a lifestyle brand. In our almost 9 years of Becky Higgins LLC — and in my 23-year career — the whole lifestyle component to my brand has been significant. You’ll find me sharing about family, home decor, style, organization, faith, and basically anything that personally interests me. My social media & my blog have always been a mixed bag … a blend of personal + business … and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. We have launched an online classroom. We sell fashion accessories. We have home decor items. We are on Facebook Live about weekly. We offer printing (pictures and photo books) through the Project Life App AND at DigitalProjectLife.com. We’re exploring many other exciting projects and initiatives right now.
.
.
I love this work. I love my team; they’re like family to me. I love this community. I love YOU! I work hard, guys. And I pray a LOT about the business. This work is a richly beautiful and sometimes messy part of who I am. This work has helped to shape the person that I am, and has offered me endless opportunities to grow. So grateful you’re here. Really. 💛

As long as you have an internet connection, there’s no reason you can’t be building your empire right from your laptop.
.
A question I get asked frequently is, “Alex I’m ready for a career or lifestyle change, but don’t know where to start,”
.
First and foremost, don’t confuse the “magical dream life” with actual work. Nothing is handed over to us, it takes work HUNNI.
.
However, we are so incredibly lucky to live in a time where we have infinite resources! Study and research what you want to know more of. I am a beauty + wellness expert because I spent years and years reading, listening, researching, attending events, paying for mentors, and applying it all to my work onset. Most of these things are available to us online.
.
Get creative and don’t make up excuses! Hold yourself accountable or find an accountability buddy (shoutout to my AB @marandisteeves_lcsw )
.
I’m going to repeat it again: STUDY what you want to know more of or be. There are countless ways to reach accomplishment and most likely the route with the more struggles is how you learn what’s most valuable (in life and business).
.
Remember that I believe in you and I have your back. What is your dream office?

Taking care of my kiddos today with my original passion, psychology. When I started Herbalife to lose weight, I was studying to become a Child Psychologist. I love what I do and the difference I make in kids’ lives. But honestly, working full time in this career was emotionally exhausting and very difficult. 😣 Having back to back to back (x8) clients meant back to back problems every day and it used to leave me completely drained. After a few years, I felt completely burnt out and I could NOT imagine a 40 year career like this. 🤕 I found Herbalife just to get healthier, but when I saw the work Coaches do, helping their clients change their mindset, I fell in LOVE! 😍 My Coach and the support community we have helped me in so many ways on my journey, the same way I help people in therapy. When I learned that I could create a career and help people as a Coach without having to be in an office 8 hours per day, I was VERY interested! 😏🙌🏼 Fast forward two years and today I only work 2 days per week, part time hours, and I have over 100 clients in several countries who I personally guide and mentor to live healthier lives!😍 I get to work from home AND make the difference I always wanted to make. I love helping people change their mindsets and live healthy, happy lives. And I LOVE that I get to do it from my phone, from home (or anywhere), and that I no longer feel burnt out. ☺️✨ This business has changed my life in so many ways. I’ll always love being a Psychologist, but being a Coach has become my passion too and brings me soooo much joy. 😽👧🏻

Now I thrive for change. New connections, new adventures, new loves. I can’t wait to pick a new place, to try something I never have before. To find new human connections and explore each others minds & views. Learn from others. My thoughts and heart has opened up so much in the past year and it’s made me the person I am at this moment.
We sometimes dwell on the hardships we have had in our lives. I am thankful for mine. Everything has led to this moment. Everything has taught me valuable lessons.
My growth is still happening and I’m so excited for this new chapter in my life. Now time to celebrate 🎉🎂❤️ Thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes so far!!

The friend who at this point as been in my life so long, I’ve forgotten how long it’s been, my brother from another, Dan Roof. Today is Dan’s birthday, and unfortunately I won’t be around to celebrate it with him, so I thought this public display of affection would make up for that. Dan you are a legend, I’m so blessed in knowing that I have a person in my corner that would literally drop the world if anything happened to me, or his loved ones. I will never forget how you came through for me when I decided to burn 20/20 vision into my eyeballs the week before I was getting ready to move to another state. Also for taking photos of me in my drugged half unconscious state, after said eye surgery and sending them to our friends. I will also never forget how you were there for me after I found out my bio-dad passed away, I’m pretty sure I got tears and snot all over your shirt that day, but you took it like a champ and made me feel better. Thank you for the overconsumption of food we have eaten together over the years, booze we’ve toasted, bringing Teresa in the fold and marrying her, not strangling me for accidentally crashing your car into a parked truck, always supporting my music career, meeting me on tour when you could cause you knew I needed a friend, the obscure advice that always becomes handy, the laughs, being my family and anything I may be forgetting in this. I love you so much! Happy birthday Boo face. @djdroof

I think it’s just that we love being us and we love having fun. We never pretend to be what we are not and we do what we love doing. We didint know each other when we started, taking one year to form and we grew up in front of the public eye just like other adolescents we had growing pains that we dealt with our own way. We were carefree, cheeky and adventurous but we were also determined, inspired and full of life. We had our controversies and front page dramas but we made it through the storm with the support of those who never gave up on us. Never in our wildest dreams did we think that ELITE would be around till today and even though every member of ELITE now has their own family and career to focus on but ELITE always remained together supporting each other physically and mentally. However you think about it when it comes down to it, we have one group of people to thank the most. Our awesome fans. Thank you for supporting ELITE as a group and every member of ELITE individually no matter the projects we have worked on throughout the years keeping up with all of our ups and downs laughing and crying together with us. Thank you for being so loyal and standing up for us being our mouthpiece when we couldn’t speak up for ourselves. Our fans are truly our backbone and we wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for our ELITEsts fans cutting across all boundaries of creed and race.
Soon ELITE will be announcing an exciting project that we can’t wait for you guys to join in the excitement. Till then don’t forget to follow these ELITE super fans Instagram account for the latest updates. Thank you for making us #1 in your hearts then, now and forever. We love you all!

Let’s hear it for @jon_the_apprentice 👏 "I was an IV heroin and cocaine addict as well as alcoholic for around 5 years. I took from everyone and everything around me for so long.⠀
Drinking and using was all I knew.⠀
I reached 1 year clean and sober on July 17th.⠀
Now I want to be there fully, mentally and physically. I want to add to the world and add to the people who I love.⠀
I have a career and a life full of friends who I cherish dearly and I want to be the best I can for them.⠀

In 3 days I leave for a two month adventure. I have never been away from home that long or had such a long trip planned.
What will I love?
Seeing new places, enjoying the history and architecture, meeting new friends, trying new foods, revisiting my old home and friends in London, celebrating my husband’s 50th, not having to cook dinner every night.
What will I miss?
My bed, my shower (why do so many hotels have bad showers?), my son who is staying home for most of the trip to be at uni, our schnoodle Gus (will he talk to us when we get back) and having to leave my daughter in London to live for the next 3 years as she travels down her chosen career path in life.
The past 2 years have been busy beyond belief and the past 2 weeks have been the MOST stressful in my life. So I am going to relax.
Stop worrying.
Stop being stressed and just enjoy the journey ahead of me.
I want to enjoy all the little moments along the way rather than madly ticking things off a list. Time to re-evaluate what’s important in life.
Time just to ‘be’
I’m going to keep a visual diary of my travels on my personal account @classichomestyle
It’s my therapy.
To help me appreciate and be grateful for this experience and embrace the life changes that are coming my way.
Sorry for the long and personal post but it’s time. for a change 😘

If @kaepernick7 is Nike’s definition of someone who has “sacrificed” everything then they are lost beyond help.

He’s a pampered rich kid that lived a privileged life leading to a privileged career made possible by those who made sacrifices on his behalf.

I understand that the initial intent was to highlight the VERY RARE instances of police brutality in the United States. Most could understand and even were willing to listen but his method wasn’t accepted by the public. Once he realized his message was being lost he could have gone about it any number of different ways using his celebrity.

The @nfl @espn all jumped on the bandwagon making this a “them vs us” situation when it didn’t have to be that way. The NFL, their athletes and ESPN politicized sports when most used it as an escape from everyday bs.

No American wants police brutality of our citizens. Colin would have better gotten his message across by doing interviews or wearing a shirt during pre game. Instead he arrogantly and immaturely refused to admit he had miscalculated his approach and now we are supposed to see this as a sacrifice? #gtfo

@nike and Colin have both thrived in our country under the layers of protection provided by LEO and military. Both being unable to pay the very basic of respect to our flag is disgraceful and shouldn’t be tolerated.

We may have an issue with a VERY SMALL population of individuals that shouldn’t be in law enforcement however we have an overwhelming population of LEO deserve better then this. They get up and put their lives, families and future second to your safety and security. The least you can do is stand up for our country’s anthem and not make a spectacle of it.

I can’t believe what this country is coming to. Soldier’s and LEO’s sacrifices are being compared to millionaires being held accountable to their decisions. Somehow we are supposed to believe these are equal?

These are adults playing a children’s game.

This client will go unnamed but I received this text out of nowhere from them yesterday and probably at a good time in my career. We all go through passionless phases when it comes to our professional life and that’s ok! This message reminded me why I started this and why I’m no where near done.
To touch one life is one thing, to touch ten lives is another thing ... but to touch thousands then millions of lives is my mission.
▪️
When you set out to be extraordinary you will spend many moments in the ocean of mediocrity. You will paddle hard and have moments of excellence but, you’ll have COUNTLESS moments of floundering and even more of failure. These moments will make you feel like you’re light years away from completing your mission and will test your passion.
Set backs will be major ... but your comeback will be greater. Those set backs will be painful but just like exercise, strength is built in the pain.
▪️
Remember, when you’re broken down and you’ve got no choice but to act ... you’ll have your breakthrough and rise to the occasion. Losing your passion is normal when your mission is greater than you. When that happens ... let the lack of passion break you down. Embrace the struggle.
Let it burry you.
Then, when you’re in that place where all you’ve got is your voice in your head ... remember what it was that set you on your journey and let that purpose be the water that helps you grow.

A couple of weeks ago my friend @kariorviktintypes took this portrait of me at her #tintype studio in San Francisco! I have always been camera shy, but recently have felt a resurgence to break away from that and put myself out there more! So hiiiiiii.
.
I’m not always inspired to share my intimate life, mainly because I wanna be present (!!!), so it seems these posts come in waves. I’m so grateful for those of you who stick around and follow along, & all the PM’s of encouragement along the way! This past weekend I was in Carmel photographing a wedding and for some beautiful reason (energy! eclipse! amazing grateful clients! killer team!) I left feeling more excited, more inspired and so damn grateful for what my life and career has become. I’ve never felt so sure in my life that this is exactly where I belong.
.
So in keeping with this bolt of energy and momentum, I wanted to share some things about me that you might not know, b/c maybe we have something in common? When I was 5, I had a near death experience and broke my neck. I wore a “halo”, have lots of scars, and to this day still have wire in there! I’ve been playing soccer since I was 7, & recently started playing again. I’m a goal keeper (might say a lot!) & am fearless and very competitive. I’m a dog person & have three great danes living in a not-so-giant flat in San Francisco with my husband who goes by “Rabbit”. Spaghetti is my favorite food in the world. I don’t believe that rice belongs in burritos. I (not so secretly) love Taylor Swift, like love her. In high school, I was super punk rock and went to ska and punk shows like every weekend. I’ve been on a diet the last 1.5 years and have lost 88lbs, only 12 away from my goal. I’ve become much more spiritual, super into energy, & good vibes, and crystals & palo santo, astrology, the universe, etc. Fun fact, my mom recently shared with me that she thought I would join a commune one day (ha!) because I was always so different and “artsy”. I’m a fiercely loyal lady with a ton of ambition and surround myself with like-minded people! Tell me more about you!! xoxo

something i hear pretty frequently, whether it’s after a workshop, or panel discussion, DM, etc. “Sophia I know I’m ready for a change, I just dont know where to start.” What I can say is that no matter how much you dream about eating better, switching your career, developing an exercise routine, etc. Lets make sure we never confuse the “magic of life” or “dreaming” with actual work, networking, intentional acts, and socializing—They’re both important, but not the same
.
.
An example—dreaming about being a chef is GREAT! However taking a knife skills class, going to the farmers market to touch, smell, and taste new flavors, buying foods you’ve never heard of to go home and create with, spending hours working on the PERFECT crust recipe(I’ve done this lol), asking a local bakery what tools they use for a specific cookie recipe—THIS IS HOW YOU ACTUALIZE A DREAM!✨The whole, “I wanna be a chef, but I can’t afford culinary school.”—That’s just you not being very creative, or maybe even a little self-sabotage.
.
.
We self-sabotage way more than we think when it comes to our “dreams” “You want to eat healthier, but don’t know where to start”—ASK! And honestly, if you’re even reading this..YOU DO KNOW WHERE TO START! It’s important to hold yourself accountable—don’t lie to yourself! If you don’t have answers, go out there and find them! “I don’t know how” is never a valid excuse when your dreams are on the line
.
.
We live in a time where we have infinite resources—It is my wish this Friday to remind you not to let anxieties, and fears get in the way of your craftiness or creativity when it comes to following your dreams.✨There are countless ways to reach accomplishment, and most often the route with many layovers, and side trips is how you learn what is most valuable, and for sure makes for a more uniquely you experience
.
.
Seven years ago I was living in a car with my dog. I had no cell phone, no family, nothing. Desperation had to inspire my change. I wish that all of you find your positive life changes ON YOUR TERMS
.
.
Dwell ONLY on the path you wish to inherit, all the other stuff is distraction—remember, I love you

How someone can be so blind to their own contribution to a problem. Ignorance disguised as confidence. Direct disregard for the big picture and an acute focus on one's own personal status. In fact a big reason I have never been confident in my decisions is the fact that I have spent my whole life watching ignorant people incorrectly believe they are right over everyone else and as a result watching others suffer due to this tone deaf excuse for brains. If I detect you are not now nor have you ever given even an ounce of thought to a perspective outside your own I do not give any credit to your opinion. None. Age, gender, seniority, assertive confidence. These are not the things that should demand respect. These are the false pretenses our hierarchy comes from. This is the ignorance we have built our entire existence upon. And much like a medieval king deciding to build a castle in a swamp, destined to fail.
And yet, I have done this. I have been blind. I have been ignorant. I have asserted dominance in an opinion because of my own perceived skill and understanding. And I have been wrong. Many, many times. So how can I speak so strongly without paying attention to this, how can I act like others are the ones who are wrong and I'm without fault. How can I ignore my own contribution. I could choose to not mention it and act like I'm perfect, or I could highlight my addition. It seems as though everyone in the spotlight of the world is FORCED to exude perfection. Not has to, but forced to. If they have any hope of keeping a career alive in a time when all it takes is a pindrop to slaughter a lifetime of work that is. Everyone is on eggshells and it shouldn't be this way. But we have ALL been wronged for so long it's hard not to lash out when there is an ounce of blame to be dealt. So I say, why not own up to it. Include yourself when you speak on the worlds problems. Share your own mistakes. Show everyone that not a damn soul is perfect. Maybe that way we can all stop trying to be.

@whatismyfate you're beautiful and I'm sorry I hoard so many photos of you.

I chose to spend it with my family, of course, but that word included some non-relations too.
You see, the historical Dolce&Gabbana store in via Spiga 26 yesterday closed its doors for good. That wasn’t just a store: that, to me, was the place that provoked a chain reaction in 2013 that never stopped. Sandra came in and Lady came out. It wasn’t a smooth journey at all, we begun with a horrid fight but it turned out to be the Fashion love of my life, so I guess the initial war was a good thing 😊
In this picture there are @jennifer_e_basta and @giuliocesarepandolfi , but a lot of people are missing. First of all, @claudiocampitelli , the man who got me naked more times than any other, only to put me in some of the most stunning gowns one can think of. And during the years he got his place in my heart, and he stays firmly there. ❤️
We are missing @sergiocatenaro who went on to have a brilliant career elsewhere but who was always a big sweetheart and a gentleman to me. Love you Sergione ❤️
We are missing @axeldechateauthierry , the French store manager who was brought into my changing room while I was almost naked 😂 and who never got discouraged while I didn’t exactly give him the warmest of welcomes, and who had much patience and love for me during the years he spent there, going well beyond his job description. Much love to you, Frenchie.
We are missing @mario_rigo_apluvia , the man who saved the whole war situation, was smart enough to understand me and patience enough to wait for me to lower my defence walls. In a certain way, without him there could have never been a Lady. And today he’s a friend of mine, and the bond we have is stronger than when he was living in Milan. ❤️
More people came into my life through this store, and I hope nobody will feel excluded if I mentioned just the “historical” nucleus. You are all in my heart even if the walls that saw so much s**t go on are no more.

Ready for an inspiring story? My Papa has always been a role model to me. He’s been a constant dreamer, visionary, entrepreneur and lifelong learner for as long as I can remember - in addition to this side gig he did called being a physician. 😉

Papa has always been a fascinating storyteller - both in his verbal stories and written ones. Over the past several decades, Papa has written many poems and short stories. His wittiness and charm shines through his writing and I have always enjoyed reading his works. But writing was, of course, more of a hobby for him than a career. He had patients to care for and lives to save.

Fast forward to the past several years — my Meme, Papa’s wife of 60+ years, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s some time ago. As her disease progressed, so did her needs. So in his early 80’s, Papa hung up his stethoscope to retire and care for his bride. They uprooted their lives in AR and moved to NE to be closer to family - but sadly had to leave their friends, church, other loved ones, and their former life behind. Meme was recently moved to a memory care facility where she is being loved and cared for each day. But I can only speculate that it has to feel lonely sometimes for Papa to be in a new city, knowing few people and sleeping each night with his spouse across town. •
But in his usual upbeat fashion, Papa saw the bright side of this situation and has used this new chapter in his life to pursue some of his own dreams. He immersed himself in his writing and decided to publish some of his pieces. He found a local publishing company & talented illustrator and they all worked hard together to make this dream come true. •
So (drumroll)...I’m excited to share with you my 85 year old grandfather’s first published children’s book: DREAMS🌙 This is so fitting of a title as this children’s book is not only about dreams you have while sleeping - it’s about chasing after your own special dreams in real life. And that is exactly what he has done. It is NEVER too late to pursue your dreams-and he is an example of someone to whom we can all look for inspiration! We have some exciting OSV promotions coming up with this book soon - stay tuned!! ✨

One year, and 4 months ago... I took this first picture. I have had doubters, haters, and some very mean people come through my life. What I have gained from this last year is incredible. I’ve realized that people will say things. People will have amazing things to say. Some people will doubt. People will say mean things. “You are fake, you are fat, you are beautiful, you are everything” YES... those are all things people have said to me in the LAST 24 hours.. and that is OKAY.. Bc Everyone has an opinion. We have all gone through things.. hence my new single Burn- expressing my opinions through MY music! Have you ever said something you don’t mean? Have you ever said something mean..(even maybe just to yourself)? YES. We all have. We are human. We make mistakes, but we only learn from making them. It is normal to have flaws, they make us UNIQUE, beautiful, and make YOU who YOU are. Today just know one thing.. the only opinion that matters is yours. You have to confide in yourself to make a change.. whether that be a journey, an addiction, a relationship, or even for a career. Listen to yourself, listen to your heart. .

The time is NOW to commit your life fully to God. The time is NOW to stop living like a slave to sin.

God has given us freedom through Jesus Christ and most of us don’t walk like we are in freedom we walk like we are still in chains. Where is your identity? Is it in your career? Your spouse? Your friends? Your things? If your identity is related to anything on this earth you will only live a life prisoner to fulfilling that craving.

Jesus is the way, the truth & the life (John 14:6). Friends, it’s time to stop living apathetically (Romans 12:11, Ephesians 5:16, Proverbs 15:19). Being apathetic is living without care, without desire, without a need of a savior. You just go with the flow. You live life for you. God has promises with your name on them. God has a purpose for you. You won’t found it anywhere else except through Jesus Christ. There are many counterfeit faiths out there that aren’t anything but a distraction, a misleading road that leads directly to Hell, promises that will never come to pass, lies that are dressed in fancy wordage and similar tones to the Bible.

I don’t want to be a person who sugar coats everything. We have a world full of those types of people. We need people to speak the truth with boldness and love. I care so deeply about those of you who follow me and I want all of you to go to Heaven. I’m so sick of Satan’s work on this earth that I’ve had enough. If you want to grow in your spiritual walk, open your Bible. If you want a relationship with Jesus Christ, open your Bible. If you want to combat the enemy, open your Bible. Pray to the only God who exists, Jesus Christ and live a life guided by Him alone.

What holds you back? Fear? Thinking you’ll fail? Not knowing what to do? Thinking you’re too old, too overweight, too set in your ways to get started now?
Yep. I’ve thought some of those exact same things myself. In just barely over 4 months, I’ll be 40 years old. And I didn’t start my journey until just 5 1/2 years ago. I thought BACK THEN, “it’s too late to start”. I even had somewhat convinced myself that being overweight was just my destiny, like I had zero control over it.
Let me set the record straight. This is NOT easy every day. Especially when you start later in life, have a joint disease, and are trying to undo literally a lifetime of poor lifestyle choices. But you know what? It IS doable, and I’m doing it. Day in, and day out. You see me here. I post every day for not only my own accountability, but to show you that it CAN be done. No, I’m not trying to keep up with the 18 year olds. And no, I’m not trying to attain an athletes physique. What I AM trying to do (and succeeding at, I might add), is fight like hell for the look and feel I want.
What do YOU fight for...when it comes to YOURSELF? Mommas, you don’t have to cease to exist anymore, just to put the kiddos first. You’re still important. Busy corporate world ladies, you can still rock your career AND your goals. You don’t have to choose. Ladies who have battled weight their entire lives, your history does NOT have to be a predictor of your future. YOU ARE!

Fight for YOU. We all have obstacles, overbooked lives, stressful times and setbacks. But girl! In an ever-changing world of chaos, where so much is OUT of our control, don’t you want to be sure to control what you CAN?

I started Tiny Devotions 9 years ago after finishing law school and running away to Bali for a yoga teacher training where I discovered mala beads and fell in love with them.

I really didn't realize this would lead to a company way bigger than my initial vision and selling inspiring products all around the world. It's been a beautiful journey and I'm so thankful.

We have been much loved by our community and have operated profitably for 9 years and have won several awards. However over the course of the past nine years I personally have changed and evolved immensely. The passions and beliefs that brought me to Tiny Devotions are no longer there and my heart hasn't been in it for a long time.

Thankfully I've had a great team that has poured love into the brand while I stepped out long ago but I've realized that for full alignment in your life - everything must be authentic.

I quietly started to try to privately sell the company two years ago and although I came very close to a beautiful pass off several times nothing has come together.

I recently read this scripture from Revelations:

What God opens no one can close and what God closes no one can open.

It has made me curious if the challenges of selling this business are God ordained... Nonetheless, my time with the brand has come to completion and I need to move on to the next evolution of my career as an entrepreneur. I've really given this to God and have surrendered my will around this business and open to whether we sell it to someone who will love it with all their heart or whether the cycle of life has come to an end and it's time to close the business. This is about God's plan not my plan.

I'm reaching out to you in the case that you know or ARE the right person with the skills, financial resources and time and capacity to lead Tiny Devotions forward. If you're reading this and this opportunity and legacy is calling your name then please email me at [email protected] - serious enquiries only. (continues in 1st comment)

I have #hustled and worked my ass off for almost a decade to make a name for myself As a #freelancemakeupartist . I have always strived to make Positive connections with each person I work with. So when I decided to open up my #ArtistAgency for the first time and hold an opencall auditions, I was overwhelmed by the response. I had over 60 artists inquiry about representation, & out of those Submissions i choose 20 artists to Audition and out of those I ended up signing only 9 talented artists to @leivagency .

With every movie we always start with the goals of entertaining and putting the audience first. Knowing that no matter what is going on in your life you can drop into a theatre and escape for a couple hours is what makes filmmaking so magical for us. When you can transcend that physical barrier of the screen between you and the audience to have a real impact on a person, well that’s one of the best feelings imaginable. Here’s video from the most special screening we’ve ever been affiliated with — an early #SKYSCRAPER screening at the Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation at NYU Langone Hospital. The theme of our movie is that “the only limitations we have are the ones we place on ourselves.” Our magnanimous star @therock and writer/director @rawsonthurber surprised the audience at the end of the screening to chat and hear what this audience had to say. And you know DJ always brings goodies, so the last surprise was the brand new customized Skyscraper XBox One X for each attendee with their brand new adaptive controller. It was one of the proudest moments of our career to hear the audience praise @therock’s accurate and heartfelt portrayal of Will Sawyer, the positive image of his character as an amputee, as well as the inspirational message of the film crafted delicately and thoughtfully from the mind of our writer/director @rawsonthurber. Will Sawyer doesn’t have to overcome any physical limitations in this story, as Rawson says, “his problem is between the ears.” @therock in his own personal life exudes a similar message to this film and inspires all of us - no matter the hand we are dealt, we are truly capable of achieving anything we put our minds to... all it takes is dedication, believing in yourself, and hard work. #CourageHasNoLimits #RuskInstitue #ThankYouNYULangone #ChangingTheLens #ThePowerofCinema 🌆🔥💪🏻💗 @therock @rawsonthurber @danygarciaco @hhgarcia41 @sevenbucksprod @ms.wendyjane @universalpictures @legendary @skyscrapermovie @nyulangone

San Mateo: We have one more of my Dirty Doubles - This Sunday, August 5th. I am still going to be teaching at CSTR and SMTO, but I will no longer be teaching on Sundays. (Sunday will also be my SMTO birthday party. CSTR- my actual birthday is Saturday August 11th, so we are partying on my actual birthday!) This decision to stop teaching on Sundays was incredibly difficult for me to make. I Love our SMTO Sundays, and all of the amazing people that I have had the joy of riding with. I have taught the Sunday Survivor and 10:45 since SMTO opened, and Sundays are very special to me. I also know that life is about embracing change, and listening to our hearts.
As many of you know, I started practicing law again, and it has been an amazing to have both SOULCYCLE and law once again. Needless to say, life has been incredibly busy, and it has taken a toll on me. Since I want to keep teaching @SOULCYCLE for a LONG time, I realized that I need to create balance in my life.
Although it breaks my heart to stop teaching on Sundays, this balance will ultimately allow me to continue teaching at SOULCYCLE while still pursuing my career as an attorney.
I am incredibly grateful for all of the beautiful people that I get to ride with, and I'm going to miss our Sunday Dirty Doubles- but I am so excited to create a balance in my life that allows me to pursue both of my passions. Thank you for being on this beautifully unexpected journey called LIFE with me. Let's keep moving forward, TOGETHER💛

This week looks like this, with one last Dirty Double Sunday:

Tuesday:
-SMTO @ 6:00am

Wednesday:
-CSTR @ 8:00am

Thursday:
-SMTO @ 6:00am

Friday:
-CSTR @ 8:00am // CSTR @ 12:15pm

Saturday:
-CSTR @ 7:30am // CSTR @ 11:45am

SUNDAY:
-SMTO @ 9:30am *SURVIVOR* // SMTO @ 10:45am

Let's do this💛

Your artwork always evolves over time in association with your personal journey through lifetime experiences.

These black and white portraits were part of my first Exhibition. You, who have known me long enough, remember my mannequins. Black and white portraits on film (analogue photography) no Photoshop, no postproduction, no edits.

That was “Lembranza” Exhibition. (Gracias @su_orallo) That is an ancient and in disuse word that means “Remembrance”. Words have real power. Those faces marked a turning point in my life and career. We have all experienced those turning points in our lives. The moments when we make a decision which changes everything; where we know that right then and there, we are re-defining ourselves and shifting the course of our life.
👇🏻
Now I’m working on a brand new Project. A new turning point. My inner self keeps pushing to be heard, enacted, and expressed in the face of whatever path I follow. What you think you are is only a partial, incomplete portrayal of who you really are and can become.
🙌🏻
When you stand on the edge of these turning points, you do not need to know what is going to happen. You don’t need to know how it is going to unfold. All you need to do is say YES. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.
⚠️
NEW PROJECT. 10 portraits. 10 utterly inspiring artists. Two from One - two of the same soul. Vibrant colours, light and magic, tons of magic. 1 exhibition. London.
⚠️
And for the first time we will show behind-the-scenes pictures, their studios, and the way I create…
🎭
Ladies and gentlemen, it's showtime!

I think the interesting part to my story is that I was always going to be a CEO, or powerhouse of some sort in my career. I am a full time mom with a full time career and I homeschool part time on top of that. It’s not a drag. It’s not annoying. It has its trialing moments for sure, but basically in my career and mom life, my dreams are currently coming true. Don’t worry, life isn’t peaches and cream and there are plenty of other things that have broken me or still are breaking me. That’s life. Especially to us that study balance right? I am 34 years old. I moved out of my parents house before I graduated from high school at 17 and stayed at multiple friends homes. I filed for emancipation so I could sign off on my own college loans and got a ride 6 hours across the state where I was dropped off at my dorm: Stevenson East (go cougs). I put myself through college at Washington State University because they had the best journalism school within a reasonable distance (still paying college loans as well). I sold my truck and moved myself and one other human to Maui with barely a dime in our pockets. I tried to climb the ladder in my career field as an advertising executive for tourism magazines and radio. Every now and then I wrote an article or produced a commercial. I was a cohost of a classic rock radio show on Maui. My radio name was Holly Rox 😂. I did PR at what I thought was my dream job and got laid off. I hit rock bottom. I made up a song about “bill collector calling on the phone, leave me alone, no one’s home.” Oh man, we won’t even get into my quarter life crisis🤫. BUT, the point is...nothing was given and nothing was granted. I charged those hills and still do. What choice do we have? Sink or climb and I’ve always dug my nails in and relentlessly continued onward and upward. I’m not so naive to think this story ends here. Plenty of hills left to climb.
I was strong because I had to be. Now I am strong because I want to be.

.
I was completely heartbroken. . .until I realized something. I have control over getting better and making sure this never happens again. And that’s exactly what I decided to do the second I got home! I was going to work harder then I ever have and improve all the areas I struggled in.
.
To every Jr. Gold participant that has had a successful week - Congratulations on making a step forward in your career.
Congrats to the winners, and congrats to our newest Jr. Team USA members! You worked hard for this moment, enjoy it! 🇺🇸
.
To every bowler that is going home this week upset, remember we have all been there, every single one of us!! And this is a vital part of your career and life. Don’t put your focus on the fact that you may have failed at reaching your goals or expectations, turn it to what you can learn from the experience and what you can do better next time.
.
The lesson I learned in that car ride home, is one that I have kept with me my entire career. We are going to fail, over and over again. It’s not about never failing, it’s about what you do next.
These moments, are what will make you great.
Embrace it.💪🏼

Short Story... WE ARE MOVING TO NEW JERSEY AND GOING BACK HOME!
Long Story... I know, it feels like we JUST got here to Arkansas and the truth is, we did. On July 14th 2017 we arrived here after a long journey to start our life together both as career professionals and as husband and wife. A few months ago I started making trips to California and that landed me a position supporting learning strategy and program management for Walmart US eCommerce. I’ll be based in Hoboken under our brand Jet.com which is a great place to work. It’s still Walmart, just an arm of them. Joanne will be able to work from that office and at home as she wishes. I’ve been with this team for the last 3 months and grateful for the opportunity and the work that I get to be part of.
Leaving Arkansas comes at an odd time. We both started to make friends and get involved in a lot of things outside of work. We are trading in our spacious home for something a little more “cozy” as we will be living near Hoboken. Being closer to home means being closer to family and with the wedding coming up this is where we need to be. The wheels are already in motion and we expect to be back in December pending our new home getting secured.
A huge thanks goes out to all my colleagues and friends in Arkansas. We will miss you dearly but we won’t be too far. After all I’m sure I’ll have to make visits from time to time!
The person I appreciate most is my loving fiancée @inthesky09 for she is the glue that keeps this home together. She’s my dose of tough love when I need it and she’s so patient with all the moving around but it’s time we started our own family and being back east let’s us do that and I’m excited for that journey. I’m excited to be a husband and eventually a father. She made me realize that and I can never thank her enough for it.

So if we don’t respond to something you send us, be patient! If we don’t respond fast, it’s not because we are ignoring you, it’s just we are busy! Moving isn’t easy especially when it’s 1,900 miles but if you want to grow you need to leave and do something you never thought you would do!
See you soon New Jersey!

Here we are. It's the time of the year where everyone is sharing their #2018bestnine. For me this year, it's a bout being a family of four, travelling to new places, making new friends, starting our own cafe & towards the end of the year entering a new business industry that we have never thought on doing. 😌
.
And now it's the time of the year to reset. Sejujurnya, Nora tak suka sangat the idea of new year's resolution or azam tahun baru. Agree with me or not. Contoh mcm bila kita ckp "Ok tahun ni nak start diet" haha we all know it will never happen unless that someone is determined lah kan? To me, if you want to be healthy, be healthy all year round. Hahah. .
.
No matter where you are in life — when January 1st comes, we’re all equals. That’s how I look at it. Every year kita diberi peluang untuk start new. You can hit the reset button and do things differently. It doesn’t matter if you had a good or bad 2018.
.
Celebrate. Cry. But never forget that life moves forward.
.
Now tell me, .
1. What do you want to focus on in 2019?
2. What do you want to do for your relationships, career, yourself?
.
Let’s start thinking about 2019, but don’t forget to be in the moment during the final days of this year. Have a good time and enjoy the company of others. ❤️
.
And when January 1st comes, wake up, get to work, and keep looking forward. 🎉

A few years ago I decided that once my career was at a certain stage and my voice was big enough to reach a larger audience I was going to use my platform to raise awareness on a number of issues dear to me. Recently I’ve realised. . . f*ck it, do what you can at whatever stage you are. Those who have followed me for a while know that I’ve been an advocate for portraying positive family images. Strong relationship bonds. Fatherhood. Raising consciousness. Spirituality. Veganism. Positive black imagery and history etc Now I would like to address the subject of Mental Health. I know this affects a great deal of people however I’d like to focus primarily on my brothers out there. Many of us have unfortunately grown up in or have been subjected to toxic environments.
Whether it be witnessing or enduring an unnecessary amount of violence - living within a dominant society that boldly projects its fear of you regardless of your character - growing up being told that we have to work twice or three times as hard to achieve what others have - seeing a limited number of professionals that resemble you other than in sports or entertainment - having a lack of generational knowledge or wealth being passed down - living in a modern narcissistic society where the approval of strangers and social rating mean everything. Whether you know it or not, these (and more) can have a detrimental affect on your psyche. Many times we are not shown how to deal with these issues and are expected to sweep it under the proverbial rug of masculinity. Any sign of vulnerability is perceived as a sign of weakness. We just have to ‘Man up’ rather than deal with it. This inevitably creates a feedback loop of long term issues. I’m here to say that Depression is real, Anxiety is real. PTSD is real. Substance abuse is real. Suicidal thoughts are real. Many mental illnesses affect both men and women however men may be less likely to talk about their feelings and seek help. Recognizing the signs of a mental disorder is the first step toward getting treatment and living a better life. I employ you to not be afraid, speak to someone, ask for help and lets support each other.

While in college, I convinced myself I wanted to be an accountant. Not because I was passionate about it; but because I was TOLD it was a good career field. The truth is I had no clue what I wanted to do with my life between ages 18-22 (typical college years).
_
I feel like this happens far too often to the majority of kids who are rushed off to college. We attend classes pretending to want a career that we have zero passion for. Only to find out years later that this is not what I want for my life. Meanwhile, racking up an enormous amount of DEBT and student loans!
_
I'm not anti-college. I just recognize that for most it can be more of a burden than a blessing. After high school, I feel it's more beneficial for kids to pursue something they are passionate about. You shouldn't have to incur DEBT while determining a career path. Education is important; I get it. But a college degree is not necessary to become successful!

Signed, I have a college degree, but entrepreneurship saved my life!

Perfectionism
&
Body image
are things I have struggled with.

I always thought I had to be perfect in order to feel accepted. I think it has something to do with the fact I didn’t go to the perfect collage or had the perfect career plan. For many years I held that against myself in a very hard way. Well, “you didn’t go to college so you need to work night and day.”, ”you didn’t become a DR. who are you to think you can make it ? .””You need to work harder then everyone else.””u need to read twice as much”, “you need to take more courses.” You’re not smart enough , you wont succeed.” ✨
I finally accepted my journey. If you just hold on, you start seeing things just work out in their own miraculous way. I needed alllll those moments to become ME. To become the visionary I am today. ✨
I believe education is extremely important. Mine was just more so experience more then anything. There is no perfect career plan or perfect school. Nothing good will come out of something that does not fulfill you.
Take action in what makes you happy. Chase that. Make that your school. Learn everything about that ONE thing. Then call it a career.
I found beauty in learning.
I found what lights me up.

My muscular frame back in the day was considered “not in “. Too muscular. Too big . Not skinny enough. Now we have Social media and it makes you believe you need to “look” a certain way. Its no wonder why some of us get sucked into the shame cycle of our perfectly imperfect body. Today and for the last couple years of my life I’ve helped woman build their dream body, but even more importantly FEEL comfortable in it. That’s where my light comes in.

I went from not eating to bingeing to overly OBSESSING to food freedom. It was a mental rollercoaster. Thankfully i was able to break the horrible pattern I was developing and little by little teach myself how to enjoy food again. The right way.

This gave me desire to cook and commit to my health. Take time to research your body. What makes it feel energized, what fights off diseases ,what lifts your mood and keeps you performing at your best.
It starts and ends with you.
You have the power to HEAL.

I started the year in a very different place. I thought I had to act & look a certain way for people to like me. I was constantly worried about other people’s expectations & what they thought of me. I let very few people see who I really am and i looked to others as a source of happiness instead of looking within myself. The day I decided to stop caring what anyone else thought was the day i changed my life. Once i stopped focusing on other people I was able to focus all my energy on bettering myself and creating a more beautiful and fulfilling life. I let people in. I said whatever I wanted to say, and did whatever I wanted to do without worrying about judgement. This is MY life, just as yours is your own and no one else’s, and we have to take advantage of every moment. Each of us is so beautifully unique and that should be CELEBRATED. Life is too short to be anything but happy or anything but yourself. More importantly, 2018 showed me that with enough effort anything is possible. I started a business. I changed my major and decided on a new career path. I’ve opened myself up to so many new possibilities and I’m so much closer to where I want to be. The person I was a year ago is unrecognizable to me now. I am right where I am supposed to be, and I am not slowing down for anyone. This year has been comprised of a lot of pain, hard work, determination, and e x p o n e n t i a l growth. I have nothing but sheer excitement for what the future holds for me and the things I will be able to accomplish in the coming months. Not only am I grateful for the experiences that have molded me into the strong and independent woman I have become, but for the people I’ve met who have supported me every step of the way (shout-out @fsutridelta). 2019 is all about new experiences, new goals, and even more growth. If you make any resolution this year, let it be to stop being scared of failure & go after what you want. You are your biggest competition, and you are the only thing standing in the way of chasing your dreams💫

As women we need to know our worth, who we are, and what we have to offer to truly value ourselves so that we don’t seek validation in anyone else but the woman staring back at you in the mirror.. I hope moving forward you continue to follow me as I share with you ways of feeling empowered, beautiful, healthy, and happy so you can start now and get everything you’ve ever wanted and dreamed of out of your life

I never thought in a million yrs that my career would be training female fitness competitors, traveling around the world almost every weekend to be at shows to support the athletes Ingrid and I train, but it has been for the past 6+ yrs. I can tell you this job has been a absolutely blessing in so many ways. It has given me the ability to fulfill what I believe my calling in life is and that is helping people. From the time I was a little boy I knew my job was to help people. I have been given the opportunity to help thousands of athletes over the last 6+ yrs accomplish their goals and today I helped these two amazing women earn their IFBB Pro cards. I am so thankful to them for putting their trust in me, believing in me and Ingrid and never giving up on me as a coach. I can tell you that Ingrid and I put everything we have into our job and we nurture every relationship we have with our athletes. I was an athlete many yrs ago and had several coaches through the yrs of playing ball and I took something from each one of them. My last coach I had over 20 yrs ago is still in my life today who I speak with almost weekly. He has taught me so much about how to be a man, how to be a coach and how to nurture and appreciate a coach/ athlete relationship. I want to thank every single athlete who has ever given me the opportunity to work with them. Whether you are still on my team or you are on to other things. I appreciate you at one point putting your trust in me and helping me learn and be the best coach and I can possibly be.

We’ve all got them right? And while we’ve got them, we know they change through the seasons of our life. Sometimes we have one gleaming goal, sometimes we have many that come together to create one overarching vision. And when we have many, achieving those goals becomes a balancing act that we must learn to master ourselves. When I started my journey I was college bound with a lot of free time - hitting the books took a lot of time, but fitting in a healthy lifestyle wasn’t difficult when there were gaps that spanned a few hours in the day to fit in a workout. There were hills to climb on the way to class, walking from one end of campus to the other in 10 minutes to not be late. All that activity added up and gave me a lot more wiggle room with my health. •

Fast forward to now: I work 40 hours a week at a job I LOVE. My degrees have paid off and allowed me to start a career in something I’m genuinely interested in and passionate about, at a really wonderful company. A month in, though, I realized I was gradually gaining weight again. I took a step back and realized, oh gosh, I’m sitting down all day and haven’t changed my diet to account for my decreased activity and am not going to the gym anymore like I used to. And I get off at 5:30 - I don’t have time to commute again to the gym. What do I do!!!?? 😬 I had to work around it before it got out of hand. •

I went back to my roots, started working out from home, and took a step back to readjust my goals to adapt to this new chapter in life. Thankfully I’ve found freedom in being in control of my time at home and I’ve already busted the myth I originally had that I needed to be in a physical gym every day to keep losing weight. Not true. I had to let go of the fear of not fitting the mold of lifting heavy at the gym to see results. And if you feel like you’re in the same boat, trying to fit in improving your health while still progressing your full time career, I challenge you to do the same. We can all make time one way or another. Can anyone relate? Thanks for the 📸 @robchouphoto •

I couldnt be writting this with any more excitement and gratitude than im already bubbling with 💙 During my journey thru this industry ive had the opportunity to create and build various businesses and see visions and dreams turn into reality. I thank life everyday for giving me the chance to be geographically based in such an adequate state for me to connect and expand with the right people, and grow in an industry/community that my heart has grown to call home. Although a rough path, i can wholeheartedly say the best years of my life so far have been pouring every oz of energy i had into creating @pacificnwrootz the well respected and loved company it has become in the last few years. Kaya has not only been an incredible, knowledgeable, and overall the best business partner ive had to date but has opened his home for me to become his brother and an uncle to his beautiful children, to which i can never repay my gratitude towards. The memories and love that we've formed thru these years will forever be held close to my heart and this #pakalolopirate will be happily branded Roots for life. Thank you Kaya for giving me the chance to advance in my career and being there not only as a business partner but as a brother when i needed you. Thank you to everyone who supported me and gave me sooo many awesome memories at all these events and gatherings. But thus the time has come for Primo to move forward to new ventures and continue working towards the goals and ambitions ive set for myself. My vision is to help generate global success for companies who have worked diligently in creating industry changing genetics thru my newly founded Seed Bank; @seedgurus @seedgurus @seedgurus @seedgurus 🙌🏼🙌🏼 i look forward to continue helping breeders succeed and hopefully by the same hands that have already helped me complete the achievements we have. With over 80 breeders and 1000 products to choose from, shoot over to @seedgurus @seedgurus and show us some love 💙💙🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

As you may have read in our previous post - big changes are coming for us in 2019!
.
The Dirtbag Revolution has changed my life over the last five years. After I graduated with my Master’s Degree (& published my thesis on the mental health benefits of trail running) I took my first break from school to explore the world and see what pulled me in. @dirtbagrunners was born that year, dramatically shifting my life and trajectory. .
It’s been one hell of a ride! I still can barely believe that we have such a huge community worldwide, full of some of the best humans I’ve ever met.
.
As many of you know, my husband @wanderingtriumph and I moved to the Pacific Northwest in April. He became a tattoo artist (& is kicking ass at it!) and I continued to manage DBR and freelance full time.
.
Well, ya girl got real tired of freelancing. Ya girl missed education and the invigorating aspects of working on a team. While it’s all fun to live on the road and minimally - let’s be real for a moment - for most of us it’s not sustainable. I have student loans, and want financial stability. The beauty of Dirtbag Runners is it’s all about mindset - of aiming to live life where nature and community is at the center, not slaving away at a job you hate.
.
The last few months I’ve felt called to return to education. So...I applied to several jobs here in Portland. My top choice being Portland State Universities Marketing Department. Out of 100 applicants - I WAS OFFERED THE JOB!
.
This is a dream come true, you guys. They were amazed by my work I’ve done here with DBR and in community building. I might of cried when I found out I got the job. After five years of making barely any money, keeping DBR afloat and living off savings, it’s time for me to begin a career in a field I love.
.
So what’s next for Dirtbag Runners? Well - our online store is closing for 3 weeks while I get ready for my new job and the new year. We are switching to a new printing service that offers better quality prints. We are taking on a new team of ambassadors (apps open Jan 1st!). And new designs / partnership collaborations are in the works!
.
HERE’S TO ONE EPIC 2019 🙌🏼 #dirtbagrunners

EVERYBODY WINS School Initiative success at St Edmunds College, Canberra. This is the very first of its kind which I am super proud be part of ! We have the vision to be the most effective ‘Add’ on service to training children in schools all over Australia. We want to teach children the fundamental principles of personal-development.
Our everybody wins team taught the students ✅How to build a positive mindset through daily rituals, exercise, nutrition and goal setting which I spoke on ✅ @davebarrie taught the students emotional mastery
✅ David Ross taught the students financial literacy
We all share 1 common goal which is to make a positive impact on young people lives so they can live a happy, healthy and successful life.
This was definitely a career highlight for me ! As I was able to give back and leave a legacy for this men to realise their full potential both mentally and physically so they can become the best version of themselves.
I want young people to understand it is crucial to take care of their physical health. As we only have one body, one vessel to carry us through our lives. If you take of yourself physically you will feel good, you will look good and you will do good ! A positive mindset means a positive attitude and a positive attitude gives you a positive life.
I felt like I was talking to my younger self. I just wish they had initiatives in schools like this when I was growing up.
Well done to the young men of St Edmunds. You have a great energy, you were fully engaged and you asked amazing questions. Please don’t forget the morning rituals, exercise, eat healthy, be a positive influence at school and at home. Smash those goals we set together ! Remember with a positive mindset and hard work. Anything is possible !

Hey Celestials, it's 7.12.18 and we have the New Moon in Sagittarius and I couldn't wait to write this up!
_
So, we've just waved tatty byes to Mercury retrograde, he went out with a bang in Scorpio, hence the O2 network going down, haha...oops!
_
Anyhow, the carefree attitude reigns for sure, time to laugh, have fun and of course THINK BIG with those wonderful ideas or maybe they're slightly quirky... Anyhow, this last new moon of the year is getting you ready to go into party mode, work takes a back seat, with a 'can I really be bothered' kinda attitude...that's only because dreamy Neptune and robust Mars are dancing in the universe... What a combo but it's standard for them to be having fun when they meet!
_
Let's see which signs will be affected with the Sagittarius new moon... Well, obviously Sagittarius, you will want to have a good time, but please ensure you gain direction before the new year. Pisces, your career is like a 'push me pull you', but issues will get resolved. Gemini, talk about your feelings more, especially within your relationships with loved ones and finally Virgo, work life balance is prominent...You have expansive dreams with thanks to the influence of Jupiter, but don't feel bad for putting homelife to the side in order to make it a reality. You will find balance without creating too many ripples.
_
Everyone else along with the mentioned signs, smile, enjoy, have fun, dream big, but don't squander too much money unless you can! Ohhhhh and we'll have the longest full moon in Cancer on the 22nd December...Exciting stuff!! S.S.J 🌟💜

Today, 4 years ago, I closed a long career chapter in Asia and packed it for Switzerland to start a new adventure. We started a movement that took a massive community of young, ambitious, talented, glowing artists to create. There were little resources to make it happen, and at the time I was fighting to get out of a rough contract in Shanghai. My strong and beautiful friend @tania_zinerco took me in to crash on her couch for some very generous months in Zürich. Before making the jump she told me on the phone, “If you fail, you’ll still have my respect.” So, I jumped. The result was an absolutely wild and successful movement together, the building of a community, and the creation of countless opportunities to share in life with each other. We stood strong in our beliefs about love and what dance meant for us.

Later at my toughest time in 2016, I was heavily learning about and assisting two businesses in London and flying every weekend. But on the brink of maxing out a new and powerful love came into the picture. We transformed. London soon embraced ONYX, and our visions have since soared to incredible new heights.
Today I can’t express how honoured I am to be able to create and work alongside friends, family, mentors, colleagues, artists, and people I have the utmost respect for. I feel like the luckiest guy in the world with a fire in my gut I have never felt before. We are working hard, taking yes for an answer, testing willpower every day, and so full of joy in what’s to come soon. We are finally slowing this rollercoaster to a halt, to find peace, and find our center to bring dance to the forefront of happiness in people all around the world.

On my journey I have seen few artistic teams build an ethos as powerful as what we have @onyxdance, and none of it would be possible without the rare diamond hearts we are humbled to call our Team. I would go to the moon and back for you all.

We are incredibly grateful for your energy and support. It is comforting and powerful, and we feel you. Can’t wait to see you all very soon. 🖤

Much love,
Dane

There is an old commercial whose tag line was: “Don’t let them see you sweat.” The premise; there are things in life that will intimidate you, cause you to be anxious and produce sweat. However, if you used their product no one would know you were intimidated, anxious or sweating.
I believe favor is the product that God uses to make our life look easy when in fact we have leaped over troops and run through walls. Favor can deceive the untrained eye. It will have you thinking there will be no tears in the midnight hour. Favor doesn’t eliminate problems it just gives the reassurance that the problem solver is on your side and the fight is fixed.
If we have the wrong perception of favor we can get stuck in fear and anxiety. When we are challenged in life we retreat instead of marching forward. We don’t fight the good fight of faith, we drop our vision & goals and head for the cave of frustration. The presence of fear doesn’t denote the absence of favor. We all have the fight or flight instinct when we are in tentative situations. However fear should give way to faith when we know we are in God’s hands. One thing I find interesting in the book of Genesis, it never mentions Joseph was afraid. Common sense would lend us to believe a healthy dose of apprehension had to surround him. Joseph didn’t dwell in fear, however, he resisted fear for favor. Joseph repeatedly made healthy choices to promote his faith over his fear. Does fear have you stagnate? Are you paralyzed by the unknown?  It’s time to be free of fear and walk in your favor. Fear can no longer keep you hostage. God wants to release His favor in your life. Are you ready to receive? Let me help you overcome the fear factor.
Expect the best…half of what we worry about doesn’t even happen. Train your mind to expect the best. (Philippians 4:6)
Confront and Conquer…face your fear head on. Acknowledge it and the limited power it has to control your life. Fear only has the power you give it.
Speak the word of God over your life, your family and your career. Build yourself up spiritually, with prayer, meditation and reading the Bible. (Joshua 1:9) #ForensicFavor" (via #InstaRepost @AppsK

The family tree fills almost an entire wall of the large living room. Yellowed photos, clippings and handwritten names cover almost every inch. Names have been added by different hands over the years as the family has expanded. It was Eleina who started the chart, a gift to her grandparents when she was still in school. Now it is the elderly couple who patiently continue her work, noting each new birth and grumbling good-naturedly about their granddaughter's failure to finish what she started. It has been a while since 22-year-old Eleina last lived in this big house in Kekava where, occasionally, she still hosts couchsurfers. She was 17 when packed up and left the little Latvian village of her ancestors to study photography in London. Now she divides her time between the two countries, accompanied by one constant companion, the teddy bear she has had since childhood. "It has to be in the same place I am," she says, "otherwise I don't feel at home." The other thing that makes her feel at home in Latvia is walking through the spacious rooms of her grandparents’ house, where every object is a reminder of the past. She also loves their greenhouses. "I feel more at ease here than anywhere else," she explains. "I love to help my grandparents with their tomatoes and vegetables. It makes me feel close to nature." Nature is all around us here, and not only in the lush greenhouses behind her family home. Kekava, though only 15 minutes from Riga, is known as the "chicken village," for its hundreds of chicken farms. One evening, Eleina's grandparents roasted a delicious one in my honor. They were exceptionally hospitable, giving me my own room with a private bath on a separate floor from their rooms. Eleina and I had long talks about life and photography, the career we have in common. "I'm proud of my country's dramatic history," she told me during one of our leisurely sightseeing strolls. "I'm proud to come from a nation that's small and strong.” #couchsurfing #latvia #familytree #traveling #sharing @couchsurfing

From the day I met him, he has been nothing but an inspiration, always believed in me and encouraged me at every level in my career.
We lived life together in NYC, LDN and Liverpool.
All those conversation of empowerment and self belief. I refuse to let it be in vain. The way he loved his family and friends, constantly changing lives, hustling, changing the game, creating his own lane. This post doesn’t do you justice. But needed to share the true light and King you were (are😥) The love I have for you sir. Argh the way my face is leaking right now.
Listen people tomorrow is not promised and one thing Victor alway reminded me was to live, love and laugh ...RIP KING @victor.adebodun

I have worked in the barn for so long that I have been able to watch most of the animals grow from babies to adults. These are just six of the sheep and goats who I have helped raise throughout my career. We have had challenges in raising some of these babies. One of the sheep shown had to be helped to nurse for the first several days of his life because his legs hadn’t developed completely. The second sheep was born via C-section and had to be bottled-fed until mom woke up from anesthetic. All of these babies have grown into full-grown adults, and they are all doing awesome. I hope you’ll come visit them at the Bob Evans My Barn, which is open on weekends only and then daily starting April 30. The other goats came in from another facility and we raised them until they could be integrated into the barn herd. It is mandatory that each animal who comes into the Zoo spends 30 days in quarantine to make sure that they are free of diseases before joining the rest of the animals.

Once they pass a health exam, they are then brought to the barn, and we slowly introduce them to all of the barn residents. We usually do this a few animals at a time because meeting 29 new friends at one time can be a little overwhelming. There is also a hierarchy at the barn. Currently Phoebe, the black Angora goat, is the top goat. This hierarchy changes over time as goats and sheep get older or leave the herd. The animals decide this order for themselves. You may see them head butting from time to time—this is their way of asserting their dominance over the other animals. The last animal to walk away is in charge. Don’t worry—this head butting doesn’t hurt them. Although it sounds and looks like it hurts, their heads are designed to handle it.

You may wonder how we decide which breeds to bring into the group here at the Zoo. When we bring in a new breed we try to bring in heritage breeds. These are breeds that were once plentiful in the U.S. but now are rare or even endangered. For more information on these breeds, please visit The Livestock Conservancy at www.livestockconservancy.org. #goats #sheep #columbuszoo #mybarn #mybabies #adorable #😍 #❤️ –DeDe, North America keeper

Yeah this suppoused to be one of the happiest day of our lives when it's your birthday and everyone is wishing you happy birthday, but is it possible to feel like you dont even want to celebrate your birthday? Yes it is possible.
Let me tell you a story about this young man who thought you have to be something great or achieve something so big that people can respect you or be with you...🐵
Last copple of years I've been so so LASER focused to my job/career and my hobbies so I forgot the most important thing in life,(my own happiness) and also I mean friends who are always there for us and family and all those people who I just blocked out of my life because of my selfish acts and selfish thoughts.
I have noticed people dont want anything from you, exept your company and you just being yourself. #beyourself
People just want your time and little bit of your attention and thats the most expensive thing we have on this earth because we are not here forever.
So dear God. Let me be a better man a better friend a better big brother and let me grow as a human being and also emotionally spiritually, physically.
And lets show for the people who are still here what kind of person is hiding behind his huge ego. #storytime #1am

Don’t Just Quit When Someone Offers A Bigger Salary⠀

Yes, we all have to pay the bills. And we have dreams and ambitions that involve more money. But is it a smart move to join a new company simply because of financial reasons? There are other factors to consider too, of course. Above all, what really matters in your career is personal happiness too. Here are three other things to consider. Remember, it is POSSIBLE to dodge those lethal bullets before they hit you. Ask ex-employees. ⠀

Research online. Scrutinize the interviewer. Observe the office environment. And just like looking for a partner in life, the more information you collect, the more robust your decision will be in deciding if that organization is the potential 'The One.' ⠀

Yeah we all know it can reach speeds of 60 mph, but what people don’t know is that the cheetahs ability to stop, and accelerate in the opposite direction is unmatched.
.
Life isn’t always about going as fast as you can in a straight line. Like the cheetah, you have to master the ability to pivot, to change direction on a dime
.
Sometimes we run so fast at a career, at a relationship, at an idea of happiness. We have to be open to the pause, to the pivot, to change direction to a place that is in alignment with our heart and not merely our conceptual mind
.
Growing up, the cheetah was my favorite animal. So happy I finally got to meet one. ❤️

"RNONAMISSION" begun as an Instagram name in 2013 when I decided to go on a weight loss journey for the second time in my life. I was a registered nurse that was on a mission to lose weight. From there my Instagram began to grow for just an average person who was working out. I then had a health situation take place in my life where I couldn't workout for a period of time. I had to have reconstruction of my left knee that put me out for 2 months. Resulting in me gaining the weight I previously lost back.
During that time I was allowed to dig deeper within myself spending more time with God and realizing that my mission needed to switch focuses. I began blogging to just share my thoughts. I received a lot of response from my blogs, more than I expected. Then my blogging days came to a quick end. I allowed myself to get entangled with the activities of everyday life. I moved for the first time in my life on my own, I took a new job, and I experienced some hardships that placed me right back at the hands of God. It was during that time I realized that my simple Instagram name was more than just a name, but it had meaning behind it. RN (registered nurse) was my identification to my career, but the "onamission" part relates to so many dimensions beyond working out.
As women we are always on a mission to maintain ourselves, our homes, families, careers, and etc. As nurses we are on a mission to strive in our careers, keeping up with the advancements of medicine, advocating for our patients, and prioritizing our day to receive the best possible outcomes. And in all of this we have to maintain our center. Whether a person believes in a higher power or not everyone struggles with something. Some are better at masking their struggles than others. At the beginning of the day/shift we are only as good of a nurse to our patients that we are to ourselves. Until, the end of time we are "onamission". #motivationmonday

We have a safe, warm place that's just big enough for the two of us, that we call home.♡
We are surrounded by love and support that is out of this world!
I have found a career that brings me to tears of gratitude literally daily.
I am able to be at the gate of my baby girl's school every single day to pick her up and make sure that her day is going great!
We get to cook dinner together and snack prep and lock into each other each day, and then she also understands my need to help others when it's time for that too.
It may just be the two of us in our little corner of the world, but I wouldn't trade this life for ANYTHING!!
We aren't quite to where God is calling us, but we are well on our way!
I feel grateful beyond understanding.😍

Throughout my life and my career, I have met people from different social and educational backgrounds with varying cultural and traditional practices, and beliefs that are unique to where they are from. People of all colors, shapes, sizes and people living with a variety of mental health diagnoses. It has been fascinating to not only learn about how people live, but also listen to the questions and thoughts they have about the world, their selves, and life in general. My goal in my work & in my life is to allow people the space to truly and fully be themselves, to feel heard, to feel cared for, to feel encouraged and confident to fully embrace what makes them different and who they are. Our differences are a fact of life! Maybe at some point in your life someone, society or media tried to tell you who and how you should be. Today I’m here to tell you, fuck that. YOU were not made to fit a mold, you were not made to follow the crowd and there is no reason to “fit in”. You were not made for that. You were not made to exist through someone else’s ideas of who or how you should be. Be YOU. Seek people who believe in YOU, who honor what makes you unique & one of a kind, forget the people who don’t. If anyone tries to tell you that you are not good enough because of what makes you “different” in their eyes, tell them goodbye. Do you really need that negativity in your life anyways? Our differences have unique attributes that allow us to better understand each other. We are able to discover the intriguing ways that we live and move in this world as humans because of our differences! Being different is what makes our kind so interesting and fascinating. Being different is what allowed us as humans to land on the moon & invent this device you’re reading this post on right now! Do you see any other animals of the same kind fighting because they have different features, perhaps a slight discoloration of fur or maybe a feather that’s out of place?! No. 〰️ I can go on and on for days. If you take away anything from this post, let it be this: Stay Different, the world needs you. 👁‍🗨 #loveshayda | reposted quote from @thedailyhealing

I relinquished it from my grasp and my control and put God first. you see, as a follower of Jesus He tells us the exact opposite message the world is telling us. He doesn’t say: “do what you think is best for you.” He says “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.” (mtthw 16:24)

He asks us to give up our idea of freedom. how we think we ought to live, to dress, to walk. we must deny all of our presupposed notions. and completely follow Him in surrender. but the thing is, that spot is the only time i have know this beautiful sense of freedom. I am not bound by myself, what the world will think, how people will react. i don’t have to be worried or try to control it. It is the most peaceful place to be in. and the moment I start taking charge of my own life, it goes awry. His way is better, it is farFARfar better than having this false sense of freedom to live as you choose. (believe me, I have lived both ways). today i’m thankful for this true freedom. I’m going to keep giving myself and my life to Him, and letting Him lead me wherever He wants me to go.

On December 24th, 2018 I was offered a full time job. On January 28th, 2019 I will begin my career as a PA for ESPN.

It has been a long two months of countless preparation for interviews on interviews. During my onsite interview I knew that I belonged with ESPN and I had to work on that campus. A smile did not leave my face that entire day.
Ever since I was a 12 year old girl I knew that the love I had for sports was special. I decided then that one day I wanted to work for ESPN. I cannot thank God enough for instilling such a strong passion in me at such a young age.

Thank you to everyone who believed in me throughout my life, I couldn’t have made it here without you. & thank you to everyone who didn’t believe in me, I couldn’t have made it without you either.

One question I remember distinctly during an interview was, “over 1,000 people applied for this position, so why should we choose you?” I cannot thank you enough, ESPN, for believing in me and choosing me to be that one.
I, a small town girl from Alabama, get to live out my DREAM!!! I am so humbled, thankful, blessed, excited, nervous, and so much more.
ALL the glory goes to God. I did my best and let Him do the rest. God is so faithful, and I’m so thankful that I have always chosen to put my faith in Him.
Bristol, Connecticut.. I am so ready for you.

Life is always a constant expansion, contraction, destruction and renewal over and over again.
The last few months has been an example of this from the depths of my heart to the extension of my career.
There have been so many first draft moments and its oh so beautifully humbling.
And I don’t mean like Kanye, more like when you’ve worshipped Santa for the first seven years of your life only to discover it was your Dad eating the cookies kind of humbling.
So it’s like this, what the fuck did we do with this? The first draft was you thinking a chubby dude in red gave you gifts. That’s the story that held your happiness together, now it’s shattered and you have to recalibrate and re align with what happiness now is. What I’m saying is, your greatest opportunities are always in the moments of catastrophic devastation.
So this is what we can do.
Let life tear your first drafts to shreds. And then. Recalibrate.
Let your heart run wild and shake apart every part of yourself you’ve been afraid to love and ground in your wholeness.
Wholeness, being the answer the question: “who am I?”.
Answer clarified as: “you’re light, love”. You’re the whole fucking rainbow and guess what this truth grounding initiates?
Go on, guess.
It helps you see that any idea about your less than wholesomeness is a complex that is to breaking apart. The, “Im not enough” is a first draft that’s shattering in many peoples lives right now and we need to open to opportunity.
You have to decide what to do with the shit first draft of your self definition that’s been keeping you in a loop of limitation.
And appreciate that the thing that matters most, is finding your power despite the hurricanes, cycles and imbalances in life by seeing things from a higher, broader and more open heartened strength.
This is your second draft.
The warrior edit.
Open hearted strength.
Taste like freedom.
Feels like Batman met Princess Diana and had a baby.
Don’t get too attached though, your second draft will crumble again soon enough and you’ll have a third.
So.
Let it be shit.
Then be a warrior.

We had a fantastic few days break in the Yarra Valley over the weekend. It was back to reality today though.
2018 brought a lot of fantastic opportunities professionally. As a family, we got out more and explored this beautiful state, and city, of ours nearly every weekend.
The boys had their best school year ever, with so many accomplishments and great friendships.
The eldest had his best year yet with his career and personal life.
I'm so happy and proud of the young men they have become, and are becoming.
On the down side, I've had a few health issues. Mainly chronic asthma, which hasn't been fun but hopefully, it will be managed better in 2019.
Thank you for your support of our website and social media channels this year. 2018 was Woman of Style and Substance's website's biggest year with 1,403,837 page views 😱
Thank you for the many online (and real life) friendships during 2018. These interactions and conversations mean a lot to me!
I know 2018 wasn't a great year for many people but I really hope 2019 is much better for them.
I'll share my goals for 2019 tomorrow.
How was your year? What do you hope for in 2019?
Have a wonderful night! x

Blessings and hard times fall on the righteous and unrighteous alike, there’s nothing we can do to escape that. What we *can* do however is adjust our attitude. We can choose to see our difficult moments as teachable ones because as sure as the sun rises, the Lord will use them as such. Stress, worry and anger on the other hand, will actually kill us. “Increased levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, interfere with learning and memory, lower immune function and bone density, and increase blood pressure, cholesterol and heart disease.” So we have to choose. Will we work towards cheerful hearts, full of life and His promises (even if we have to work like the dickens to get there and stay there) OR will we kill our selves one way or another (and I do not say that lightly)! Will we fight to heal our crushed spirits even if that means saying “no” to doing too much or getting on medications that will help? There is not a thing wrong with doing the right things for our own healing. The Lord can use a sunset or Prozac, both are possible. I’m not saying that our days should be filled with doom and gloom, I’m just saying that even on the hard days there are joys to be found if we choose to open our eyes to them. If we choose to keep our eyes closed, they are there just the same. It’s up to us to do the seeing and doing what we have to to make that choice. A cheerful heart is good medicine for us and those around us. #lbfdevo

I first met Dina about nine years ago when she began her fitness journey. I trained her for about six months and we ended up parting ways. I transferred to another gym and she continued on and her health journey. Fast forward to now and she is the image of fitness success! Not only did she continue toward her goals, she surpassed them and has made fitness a lifestyle. She too is now a competitor and trainer and she helps others achieve their goals as well. The most amazing part of this career is the ability to change someone’s life and in turn, have them have the same exact effect on multiple others. I can’t tell you how many of my clients have gone on to become trainers and it’s such an amazing feeling knowing that inspiration and motivation are so contagious. I hope you know how amazing you are Dina. It fills my heart with joy to see your success and to even just imagine how many people you have touched and inspired.

🙏💙 Why Wednesday 💙🙏
The real question is WHY the hell not. Well, because we are what holds us back. No one else does it to us, but ourselves. We make the excuses, we let our minds take over in a negative way, we let life take us down. What is the common denominator? WE are... Me, myself and I! It happens to all of us. It is part of the journey and process of getting better. We have choices in life and when we fall down, fail or fall off due to a decision or mindset; We must give ourselves some grace. Learn and grow from it, then move forward and do something different. My WHYS will forever fuel 🔥me. My faith, my family, my freedom, to LIVE not just to exist, to give in a healthy way, and my fitfam. #payitforward #loveitforward So many more, but damn it I'm fighting daily. It isnt easy ever! Physical is a plus for sure, but the internal peace and happiness even on the darkest days, is the most rewarding part of living well. I still make mistakes, I'm still human, I fall down hard, I have no clue what I'm doing sometimes, I will never know it all (dont want to), I will never be perfect, and I'm broken and crazy lmao. BUT I own it all...

I try to keep everything on my page band/career related, but I feel the moments of reflection and truth I’ve experienced these days are not mine alone.
I’ve spent the last few years of my life running. Scared, hurt, and disillusioned- I’ve pushed away the people that I love most. My people. My family. My calling. My church. The ones God had blessed me with so gracefully and undeservingly.
And the problem is: once you start running - fear teams up with shame and they won’t let you turn back. Death wants more death.
When the prodigal son left his fathers house, he not only left TRUE love and protection, but he also abandoned identity. In my case: music, vocal performance, not being satisfied with the songs I’d written and where I was in my career became the face of my campaign for unbalance.
Unbalance and unconsciousness are the devils weapons of choice against the children of God. If he can get us to focus on the path rather than the destination, he doesn’t need to steal our souls so quickly. It’s a slow fade he’s after.
I spent all my time thinking “Listen to these songs though.” and never asking “To what end? / At what cost?” I encourage you to ask the question “What’s the end goal?” More often than asking if what you did any specific day has merit, because IT WILL have some merit.
The devil often sends evil into the world in pairs of opposites. He then encourages us to waste time thinking about which one is worse. He has no problem using our particular dislike of one error/sin/unconsciousness while intensifying our loss toward the other.
STOP MOVING & ZOOM OUT!! Only if we get higher will we see things clearly. Higher = Connection to the Most High. “My thoughts are higher than your thoughts” I used to always think that this meant our thoughts were simply different. IT DOES NOT mean that. It does mean HIGHER, better, correct- while our thoughts are INCORRECT.
When we are in connection he lends us his eyes. When we have his vision we will see that two main things remain in between where we are and the greatest/happiest season of our life:
1: The lies that create fear. 2: Hard work, dedication, and commitment to “the work”

Having a front row seat to @therock’s incredible career trajectory as well as his personal growth over the past eight years has been one of the truly great privileges of my lifetime. We shot our first movie together, JOURNEY 2: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND in Hawaii. It was extremely apparent to me that he had an abundance of respect for the Hawaiian culture, heritage and people there, and how the place where he was raised held such a special place in his heart and spirituality. His entire life he has dreamt of playing the role of King #Kamehameha, the first king, destined by prophecy, to unite the warring Hawaiian islands. Now it’s time for Dwayne to fulfill his destiny. For us, getting to work with the best & most talented partners in the biz @therock, @danygarciaco, @hhgarcia41 @bslater on seven movies and gratefully counting is a sincere gift. And to add this already stellar team, Academy Award-winning director Robert Zemeckis, who’s had an absolutely legendary career and been the mastermind behind so many classic and iconic films, as well as Randall Wallace, Academy Award-nominated writer of one of our favorite movies of all time-- BRAVEHEART, is honestly a dream come true.

KA LA HIKI OLA.
Dawning of a new day with hope and promise.
Humbled & grateful to begin this once in a lifetime journey.
KING KAMEHAMEHA - the legendary King was the first to unite the warring Hawaiian islands — fulfilling the prophecy that surrounded his fabled life since birth and creating the powerful & spiritual 50th state as we know it today.
Academy Award winning director, #Robert Zemeckis (FORREST GUMP) will direct.
Academy Award nominated writer, Randall Wallace (BRAVEHEART) will write.
From the day I began my Hollywood career (2001), my dream was to bring this legacy to life. In Polynesian culture we have a belief, that something isn’t done when it’s ready...it’s done when it’s right.
The time is right.

In fact, it amazes me how quickly my days (and weeks) seem to roll into the next faster than ever since becoming a mom. Yet, even with all of the "reasons" in the world, don't you think it is time that we start living out the best version of ourselves!? Not only for us, but for our families, friends, and the people that God set in our lives to reach?
One of the things I like to remind myself when life gets busy is that despite all that we have to do in a day, we ultimately are the only ones that get to choose in this moment how we will live it. One of those choices is how we care for our physical bodies. I strongly believe that if we do not make health a priority, we will never become all we were created to be. Not only will we not feel our best, but we won't have the energy, strength, and stamina to live out our purpose to the fullest.
But what if today you started making choices to that put you on a new path? What if you made the choice to stop putting off your health and started making small investments into your future? What if you believed that you are capable of getting in the best shape of your life, feeling your best, and becoming the best version of you!? How would that help you be a better woman, mom, wife, business owner, career woman, student, or friend!? And how would your example influence the people around you that you love most!? The choices you are making right now are creating your health not only today, but tomorrow. I created Stronger Together to encourage women in every walk of life to become the best and strongest version of themselves because I believe you are worth it; And your family and those you love deserve the best version of you! Believe you can do become the best version of you, and join with myself and others in the journey! Registration for Stronger Together closes in three days, so don't wait another minute! It's time you made time to invest in your health! Click on “get tickets” in my bio to register for Stronger Together before registration closes this Monday!

And while a part of me thought “YES” - a big part of me remembered the not so glittery, muscly, lean side and screamed “NO.” 🙅🏽‍♀️ Sometimes I think about the changes I’ve made over the past year and I think ‘it would have been SO much easier to just stay. The financial security, the routine, the status, the sense of having it all figured out (most days).’ But then I remember how it felt to ‘have it all figured out’ yet not feel like I had anything figured out at all. 😅
To be filled with that constant knowing of ‘there has to be more to it than this’ - and I definitely think it would have been a lot harder to stay.
Because the internal conflict didn’t allow me to enjoy the external clarity I should have felt.
There was a sense of ‘I know this is not for me. I know this is not me.’ 🤷🏽‍♀️
And what happens when we don’t listen? When we don’t act upon that inner feeling?
We move towards a life that is not for us. 🙅🏽‍♀️
And like a snowball effect, every action adds up and gets you further away from your path.
And what should feel like a downhill ride, becomes an uphill battle.
You against that snowball my love. ✨

So staying for comfort just didn’t seem like an option. 🤷🏽‍♀️
I didn’t want to wake up one day and look back on my life to wonder “wow, where did I get so lost. This isn’t the life for me.”
Letting go of who I thought myself to be, my career, and the life I lived feels much easier in the grand scheme of things.
Because to me NOT living out my purpose or doing what FEELS right, seems much harder than starting over from scratch. 👣

It’s uncertain, it’s scary BUT it feels right. It’s also fresh and exciting with a lot of opportunity for even more growth. 🙏🏽
“You must give up the life you planned, in order to have the life that is waiting for you.” 🌸

Happy International Women's Day!💕 It's a beautiful day to remind ourselves, as ladies, to be kind to one another🙏 We mustn't slut shame, body shame(fat or skinny). We must stand up together against misogyny and misogynistic men and remember being a #feminist doesn't mean you're ugly! It means you believe in the social and economic equality in between women and men.💸 It doesn't mean you don't believe in chivalry either(paying dinner bills, opening doors). Don't forget that to be treated like a lady one must act like a lady. We must remember to support not only our ladies of color and of different origins but also our transsexuals and any and all of those who proudly identify as woman or neither💁 Your dress isn't short enough, you can never have too much sex, and you may always achieve the career/life opportunity and choices you seek💅 Women are not only as tough as men but tougher than men too👊 We carried life inside of us and the world is ours🌍 Women are beautiful, strong, majestic creatures in any shape and size. Take this day to be grateful to those women who gave life to you and to those women who without them, some things would be impossible. #Love your sisters, mothers, girlfriends and any female💋 #BeProud to be a woman🎀

I know that our parents are proud of how they raised us, how far we've come, and how much we have accomplished. Can't really ask for more. #Godisgood #blessed #grateful #lifeisgood #lovemywifey #itstartedwithaspoon #DINSLIFEASARN #TheIglooInBuFu

For almost 17 years we have shared the same dreams. We had a vision and decided to start working together to make this dream a reality. That is how we built Brazil-021, with our sweat, tears and many sacrifices. This post is not about separation but rather a homage to an incredible person and an amazing chapter of my life. For people who know me and follow me here, probably already know about Andre, but might not have the idea of how much role he played in my life. With him I learned so many things. He was always my number one supporter and encourager. He guided me in my Jiu-Jitsu career, and at times when I wanted to give up, he was always there for me, holding me hand and keeping my head up. He has been my partner in everything. Our lives are so deeply connected, and will always be. I am so thankful for have met him and to have built everything with such an amazing person. He will be a part of me forever! Brazil-021 is our first priority now and we will keep working to better the team and ourselves, like we always did. I hope people respect our life together and privacy at this moment. God is in control of everything!

With every movie we always start with the goals of entertaining and putting the audience first. Knowing that no matter what is going on in your life you can drop into a theatre and escape for a couple hours is what makes filmmaking so magical for us. When you can transcend that physical barrier of the screen between you and the audience to have a real impact on a person, well that’s one of the best feelings imaginable. Here’s video from the most special screening we’ve ever been affiliated with — an early #SKYSCRAPER screening at the Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation at NYU Langone Hospital. The theme of our movie is that “the only limitations we have are the ones we place on ourselves.” Our magnanimous star @therock and writer/director @rawsonthurber surprised the audience at the end of the screening to chat and hear what this audience had to say. And you know DJ always brings goodies, so the last surprise was the brand new customized Skyscraper XBox One X for each attendee with their brand new adaptive controller. It was one of the proudest moments of our career to hear the audience praise @therock’s accurate and heartfelt portrayal of Will Sawyer, the positive image of his character as an amputee, as well as the inspirational message of the film crafted delicately and thoughtfully from the mind of our writer/director @rawsonthurber. Will Sawyer doesn’t have to overcome any physical limitations in this story, as Rawson says, “his problem is between the ears.” @therock in his own personal life exudes a similar message to this film and inspires all of us - no matter the hand we are dealt, we are truly capable of achieving anything we put our minds to... all it takes is dedication, believing in yourself, and hard work. #CourageHasNoLimits #RuskInstitue #ThankYouNYULangone #ChangingTheLens #ThePowerofCinema 🌆🔥💪🏻💗 @therock @rawsonthurber @danygarciaco @hhgarcia41 @sevenbucksprod @ms.wendyjane @universalpictures @legendary @skyscrapermovie @nyulangone

Words cannot describe the hole you have left. No matter someone’s age, such loss will always leave us heartbroken.

Bud, you taught us so much; from being strong, being the life of the party, leading a family, earning respect and respecting others.

You have done so much, not only for us but the wider family. Your hard work and determination are second to none.
3 children, 7 grandchildren and 1 great-granddaughter. You made us such a family and the love and support we have for each other will always continue.

Not only have you seen your children grow and have families, you have been able to be there for all 7 grandchildren graduating and building their lives.

For me, you have seen me graduate, start my career and progress to where I am now. You have seen me start my own business and you came and saw me play rugby.

I may not have told you every day, but I love you, then, now and always.

I miss you every day, but for you I will be strong.

Until we meet again 💔
