This trip, this team! 🇮🇹 Our amazing friends blessed us with their presence shooting with us in Italy for our next campaign. We had the best time and created some amazing images... like this one ☝🏽☝🏽☝🏽 Thank you to my ever loving bam fam @vincentshakirphotography @jessicashakirbeauty you both are such magical treasures... and Jess modeling my treasures is a dream come true. Not only is this woman beautiful on the outside(clearly👀) but her voice, beliefs and mission to make every woman & little girl feel beautiful and value themselves and their bodies is just so incredible to me. Our society promotes so much 💩 to our girls! I have started to feel the importance of our #luxdivine models being in alignment with our own beliefs and representing our brand in the proper way. I love my daughter🦋 more than life itself. I now realize just how important the example we set is for our girls💕 I do not want to promote unhealthy actions. I will no longer promote tanning, food restricting, negativity towards ANYONE, jealousy, hate, fear... bashing my models will get you blocked. My page is NOT a space for negativity and insecurity. I love you all ❤️ I hope to inspire you to follow your dreams. I started this little jewelry brand of mine with a dream when I was 16 years old. Follow your dreams babes! Please, life is too short to worry or give a 💩 of what others think. Be kind, help others, love hard❤️ I often ask myself “is this kind, is this helpful, Am I coming from a place of love?” I am almost certain that Jess was blessed with her exterior beauty to attract others to her message. She is my Willa’s Godmama and I couldn’t have asked for a better one to guide my bambina💕 And if your wondering about the amazing lighting... that’s just God... giving us a little help🙏🏼 #insidebeautyoutside

What a bittersweet experience to be human. High highs and low lows. We must be getting to the full moon… and countless other aspects pushing us to grow, and pushing our buttons, and putting fingers into the wounds of our past. Amma must be close by, Mother Kali.

I know how blessed I am and still I suffer. It’s been a strong few weeks. Sadness. I’ve been reading lots of Amma books and holding on tight to her feet, the feet of God. And still I suffer. I can feel the suffering of the world, my friends and my family. We’re all connected and we feel each others pain.

And in the midst of this, in many other moments, I am happy and excited about life, about Maha Rose, about some exciting changes happening I will tell you about next week. And then came a few layers of guilt for feeling happy while others are suffering. So complex, this human experience. Up, down, up down. Up, down, up down. I’m in it today!
It has been a little hard to write. Do I write about the pain or about the hope? Finding hope amidst the pain? All the things going right or all the things going wrong?

We’re doing big things over here. Big moves forward coming with lots of mistakes. Defeat mixed with success. Failure and victory. I guess that’s how it all goes.. Welcome Cancer season! I took an IG break for inspiration and saw Siedeh Foxie’s post, “..if anyone needs me you can find me in the Crying Room until Cancer season is over.” haha
It’s so helpful to see that we’re all having this shared experience: joy and sorrow, failures and victories.
Nothing to do but embrace it all. Surrender to the flow of life and hold on tight to the feet of God.
And get help too. Friends! Community! Practitioners! Healers unite! We’re all in this together!

So much love to all you beautiful beings today and always,
Lisa ( photo via @st.foxie )

I started my blog Kaptain Kenny Travel about 2.5 years ago but I’ve been taking it seriously for the last 1.5 years. I initially read online that you needed to have at least three niches or “specialties”. I’ll be honest - I didn’t know what I was most passionate about back then - I thought a travel blog was a travel blog and that was it. Over the years I’ve come to learn something. My initial 3 niches “great outdoors”, “food and drink” and “city escapes” are a little broad. These days I prefer to focus my attention on: 1) interesting and astounding scenery & nature, gourmet/ Michelin Star food and my Team Kaptain Kenny community. •

My community is growing and it’s really the main thing I’m interested in. Sure, this page may have photos of ME in it - but first and foremost I get way more of a kick out of being a connector and helping people to make friends. (I also love to meet new people and make friends, too!) •

If I just came here to post photos of myself and my own life without telling any stories or engaging back with everyone, then this platform would be way too self-serving for me. I get a feel good buzz out of my other business, which is teaching English here in Germany, so I had to find another way to get that feeling out of my blog. And I finally believe I’ve found it! My recent #kaptainkennycollabcamp was the first (of hopefully many) collaborative creative experiences I want to host. The concept is quite unique. If you don’t know about my community, leave me a comment and I’ll explain it to you. For now you can be part of it by using my hashtag #teamkaptainkenny in your travel photos on IG, or you can join my FB group by typing in “Team Kaptain Kenny” on Facebook. If you are a professional photographer, videographer, blogger etc full time, you can also join my discussion group on Telegram where we help each other when encountering problems! All in all, I just wanna be surrounded by kind, supportive and helpful people and so far it’s working pretty well ❤ •

My new uber budget-friendly dinner series, “The $70 Week,” is locked and loaded on Harvest and Honey right now (link in profile), and I hope you guys find it as helpful as I have. My inaugural recipe collection includes this delicious smashed white bean salad sandwich, from my dear friends, @acouplecooks new book, #prettysimplecooking. It’s a fantastic vegetarian spin on a classic chicken/tuna salad - and we absolutely love it.
.
.
This new budget-conscious series of mine is intended to help keep food expenses low, while not sacrificing fresh, delicious meals. It is intended to be a roadmap, as I realize costs aren’t exactly the same for everyone, in every location. But the principles and general notion of this project will carry through, no matter where you are and I hope you enjoy! Whether you choose one recipe or you print and cook them all, you’ll be saving money no matter how you shake it (or bake it). Happy weekend, friends!

On the note of food and toddlers, a great question came in:
.
HOW TO HELP A CHILD GET OVER A FOOD PHOBIA?
.
This is such a great topic, guys, because this is different from just a picky eater who is throwing an attitude.
I have one of those who wouldn’t eat, and would happily starve.
A few things that helped us tremendously:
• don’t make a big deal about this.
Sometimes these phobias root from some sort of a traumatizing experience ( and I sincerely encourage to find a child psychologist, a good one, who could take a personal approach), so if you add hype to the issue, it only becomes deeper.
Causes can be a million.
In our case, a heavy reflux plus a fall right after Evyianne had a meal with new foods triggered the problem.
• tiny steps go miles, when comes to kids with food aversions.
What we found to be very helpful, is to have a little bit of what we knew he considered “safe” mixed with new things that we served for everyone. We sit down at the table and just chat while eating, placing absolutely NO emphases on the fact of food.
The moment I would see Evyianne as much as sniff and lick a new something, we would flood him with praise.
Long journey that takes time, but it works.
• peers. Always peers. Get friends of the same age and have them eat together in a fun place. A picnic, a fun game to accompany, etc. Just make sure friends have great eating habits - that’s an important one.
But little kids trust little kids more than they trust adults. They can relate more. The example, a positive one, helps a lot.
.
Anyone has an eater with serous food aversions/phobias? What helped you?

Take for example, my sweet little succulents that sit in my kitchen window, without me taking the time to provide them with fresh water and a place where they can bask in the sun they would not survive.
As someone who has survived abuse, I wasn’t alive, I was just breathing. I am so proud that I survived and created a life full of love, hope, kindness, nurturing, and peace.

Super long post I'm sorry - mainly for my Texas family: •‼️‼️🌈K I think I can finally give a "LIFE UPDATE":💐🌺🌼 I got accepted into the SōPercussion Summer Institute as a composer, so I get to compose for Sō and go to Princeton for two weeks this summer haha. I also get to work with Caroline Shaw, David Lang, Steve Reich, Angelica Negron, and Andrea Mazzariello! So that's a crazy big deal.
I just accepted a job offer as the Executive Director's Assistant for the International Contemporary Ensemble, which is going to be really fun and challenging in ways I'm excited about. And everyone in the ensemble and office seems really cool, so that'll be a nice little family.
I've been able to meet a bunch of my composer idols, and so far all of them really like my music and believe in me which is MIND blowing, but also super SUPER reassuring. So there's that... I've met with some cool and kinda famous ensembles who also like my work and want me to write for them, so more on that as it develops!

I've been able to record three times with different friends, was in an Apartment Session video, and am starting to get asked to play with friends on different sets and stuff. I'm also going to meet with this really cool musician who does harp pop stuff and played SXSW recently, so hopefully we end up working together.
I'm joining this orchestra called the Queer Urban Orchestra, and we had our first sectional last night. Everyone was so so so nice and positive. So that'll probably become another little family.
I've also been meeting with a bunch of people y'all've put me in contact with, and everyone's so willing to be helpful and very nice etc. so little friend and family circles are growing.
Things are a little rocky financially at the moment but they're about to SUPER NOT BE (like in a couple weeks), but if you wanna help me out this month just go buy music from my bandcamp or something haha. I'll put the link in my bio <3
Anyway that's what I've got for now - I'm sure I'm leaving stuff out but you'll see it as the content gets created.
Love you all so, so much. This was the right choice. 🌈❤️🌷

Today my heart is finally at ease enough to open up and share a personal thing that have been going on in my life... Hearing that someone you love is diagnosed with stage 4 cancer is not something you want to hear. It is also not a easy thing to understand or accept. When I heard this news about my “mom” my world was turned upside down. I was scared, I was angry, I was confused, I was helpless... me living in Missouri and my family in Texas... it was the first time I actually HATED living in Missouri (but only because I was so far away from my family). For those that do not know, my biological mom passed away when I was a sophomore in college. I was fortunate enough to have God bless me with another women... another mom... who has filled that void in my life and in my heart. So facing the fear of losing another mom has been a HUGE obstacle for me over the past 6 Months.
After months of treatments and testing we FINALLY have something that will hopefully diminish and eradicate her cancer. Today my mom is undergoing the first surgery but most importantly the first steps to help her get rid of the cancers that have developed in her body.
If you pray, PLEASE PRAY, if you meditate or have other spiritual practices, PLEASE SEND THEM to my mom and my family today. THANK YOU to all of my close friends who have known what has been going on and who have been supportive and helpful during this difficult time for me. All races or events I do this year will be done in honor of my mom and her fight to overcome this cancer.
Hug your loved ones a little longer, and tell them you love them more often. Embrace each day to the fullest and do what you love the most as often as you can because tomorrow is never promised...

#cancerconnections - when I was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer as a 24 year old with no social media or cancer support around me, I felt lonely and isolated, desperate to talk to someone who understood. I was pleased I didn't know anyone else in my position but it meant I felt i was dealing with it alone.
.

So when I was diagnosed with breast cancer I immediately turned to Instagram searching for people who like me were battling cancer. I found this incredible community online. So many people to talk to, to get tips and advice from, people who just get it.
.
I decided to document my cancer journey to help others, raise awareness and to extend the hand of friendship and support to those of you who, like me, felt isolated and lonely.
Let's share some of the wonderful accounts that have helped us through tough times, accounts that provided you helpful advice, hints and tips, inspiration, chemo friendly recipies, accounts who are supporting those of us with cancer and those that made you laugh or lifted your spirits on those down days... I’ve tagged a few of my faves (I wish I could tag more that 20!)

Let's share our faves among our wonderful #cancercommunity and lets make some new #cancerconnections. Some charities that have personally helped me @coppafeelpeople @macmillancancer @breastcancernow @trekstock @breast_cancer_care @cr_uk

Family, Kids, Your Job, Friends...Yourself?

If you asked yourself this same question and you're last on the list, why is that?

Why do we always put others and things before us, thinking that's the best option?

When I mentor, mostly women and moms, they tend to set aside all their goals and dreams for family. Which sounds cool in theory, but really isn't.

Over the years as a fit pro and business mentor, its crazy how this career, having my own fit business has shown me that if you want to truly give your family and love ones the BEST in life, putting YOU last is the worst possible choice.

They, for the most part, aren't happy with how they look, they're always tired, stressed, some even have negative body image of themselves with low self esteem, and or have HBP, sleep apnea, negative self talk....YET, they put themselves last!

I'm going to share with you a little secret..your kids, wife, husbands, friends, see it. You not fooling anyone, even if you're trying to.

Trust me when I say they rather you make yourself a priority than not!

You're not being selfish if you do so. That's a liars trap we fall into.

I'm not saying you're going to wake up tomorrow morning and knock it out the park, but once you begin making YOU #1 on your list, it helps with long term success of your goals.

Here's how to start:
- begin with just 10-15 mins doing some sorth of self meditation. Pay attention to your inner chatter. Correct all negative talk and thoughts focusing on your blessings no matter how small it may seem to you at that time.
- If you don't exercise, start. Even if you do just 30 mins a few days a week, begin. Need help with figuring out where the heck to start? You can join my Summer Bootcamp. It begins next wk.
- Replace at least one meal and one drink a day with something healthy. Small steps -right?!
- MOST importantly DONT SKIP any of these steps.

This is a process and it's not about being perfect, but just beginning and showing up for yourself every single day.

.
.
1) Drink LOTS of water! We mean lots!! The combination of alcohol and heat is no bueno for the body. Especially if you are consistently boozing all day long. Which leads in to #2...
2) Drink a glass of water after every alcoholic beverage. Not only will this slow you down and get you to consciously drink more water - it also hydrates you! Lessening the hangover 🙌🏼
3) Apply and re-apply sunscreen ☀️ feeling burnt + hungover = a nightmare! Save your body twice over by covering up and lathering up! 🏖👙
4) Bring snacks! This ensures you will be able to eat something while out + won’t leave you ravenous/ eating something you might be allergic to 🙅🏼‍♀️
5) Get a good nights sleep 💤 being the last one at the party is never a good idea (unless you’re hosting the party)! Pegs used to say nothing great happens adapter midnight... and although I don’t fully agree with that (lol) I will say you aren’t missing out leaving “early” 🙃

First.
In recent times we have been mislead, manipulated and distracted to believe the most important things in life are our social status, our jobs and titles, how much stuff we have, and our looks and body.

We are humans.
We have lost a lot of the connection with what it is to be a human.
First and foremost our job is to be a kind, compassionate, encouraging and helpful humans.

We make such a point about kindness for our children and how horrible bullying is.
We are focused on the message that the most important thing our children should be is kind and good people.
But yet why aren’t we making the same focus and commitment as adults. It’s like we forget the emphasis on this along the way.

Lightworker.
This has become the most important job for me over the past year.
Yes I am a health and fitness professional, a qualified teacher, a coach, a wife, daughter, friend and more.
But still my number one job on this planet is a Lightworker. Because a lightworker makes the conscious commitment to being a better person and creating awareness of the bigger picture.
EVERYTHING evolves from here.
It is the foundation of my entire life as a human. It makes me value my life, have perspective, love and cherish my family and friends, have fun, and also make sure I treat everyone I meet with kindness and compassion and good vibes✌️It means that in everything I do as I pass through my days, I do it with kindness and compassion, and good intentions.

We need to create a world of lightworkers.
Children, adults, all genders, all colors, all nationalities, all sizes, all religions.
All humanity.
I want the entire world to recognize themselves first and foremost as a lightworker. It doesn’t matter how you do it, what your daily grind is. It doesn’t matter if you help 1 person or 100000.
It only matters that you CHOOSE to become the light and a part of this movement that can truly change the world.
Beautiful humans....Will you commit?
Just write #TeamLightWorker if you want to join me on this commitment to help make the world a brighter and nicer place for all🌼🤝

These last few weeks and months I’ve really been slacking on so many fronts, the least important of which is my Instagram account. Is mom burnout a thing? This page has always been a creative outlet for me and having a nice sized followership is just an added bonus. I love connecting with you all and the encouragement I get from so many mama “friends” has always been such a blessing. But when I start questioning whether to post something or not because “does it go with my feed?”(whatever that means) then I realize I have started to stress about things that DO NOT MATTER.
The truth is, a lot has been going on behind the scenes. Besides the normal everyday, mom of 2 struggles. We’ve also been dealing with major anxiety with Ryan. Fears about school and being alone at night have been the brunt of the issues and I’ve slept on the floor of our hallway outside her room for most of every night the past month.
Not knowing how to help your child is one of the most helpless feelings as a mom, and Josh and I made the choice to start her in some pediatric counseling, we aren’t ashamed to admit we need help. We had her first appointment this week and while I am hopeful for some helpful coping methods for her, I would be lying if I didn’t admit that sitting in an office for an hour and half talking to a therapist about basically every parenting decision I/we have made during her life from sleep training to discipline methods to how we play with her etc has made me feel like I am being judged as a Mom (whether I am or not). It’s hard, way harder than I thought it would be.
So basically, all this is to say that I’m here. I’m just putting the focus on the things that need my focus first and foremost, my family. So ya know what, I know this photo doesn’t “go” with my feed currently. But ya know what, real life isn’t a perfectly curated ig account either. #momlife 📸 : @katrinalawtonphotography

Hello friends! It's time that I must ask you again for a huge favour going towards a FANTASTIC movement. 🤗

My lovely sister, Viveki, is an aspiring fashion designer and she has a plan! Tired of seeing less gender neutral clothes in the market, especially of transitional Indian style, she decided that she's going to do something about it.

She has an amazing idea and wants to DESIGN and make her own line of gender neutral clothes!! How awesome is that?! 🙌🏽🙌🏽 We have set up a GoFundMe and all we ask from you is to give a little sum which will help her reach her goals! Every amount will be really helpful!

Thank you to everyone for your support!! Much love 🙏🏽❤️ ****LINK IN BIO**** @vivekij

So, @joylappsmusic and I had a baby. From the beginning of our journey we tried to go old school and keep our pregnancy off of social media. Not an easy task :-)
Anyhow, Khari Micah Larnell Lewis was born December 9, 2017 weighing 6lbs 7oz. Labour and delivery were amazing. 
After the birth Khari was transferred to Sick Kids Hospital. He's been diagnosed with Down Syndrome, and has cardiovascular and respiratory system issues. 
He's had one of the 4 holes in his heart closed, and yesterday he had airway reconstructive surgery. In a few months he will need another heart surgery to close the other holes in his heart...
That said, we are thankful to live 13 km from Canada's leading children's hospital, for our community of friends and family, and that Khari's hospital care is free. We are privileged to serve a God who is a healer.
Khari is beautiful and resilient, and all the nurses here love him and think he's the cutest little boy. We see little miracles all the time because he was born, and it's clear that his purpose far outweighs our desire for some privacy. 
When people hear our story, they often ask how they can help. Here are a few things: 
1. Please keep Khari and all the little children and their families at Sick Kids Hospital in your prayers. This week we are praying specifically for complete healing of Khari's airway. 
2. Please consider making a donation to Sick Kids Hospital to support their amazing work. Our goal is to raise at least $10K in Khari's name but it's by no means a limit. (Secure donation link in bio). http://my.sickkidsdonations.com/KhariMicah
You can receive a tax receipt if you live in Canada and donate a minimum of $20. 
3. Do something nice for a new parent in your life or anyone who you think could use some help. 
4. Joy and I don't need much right now, but if you want to do something for us, sending electronic food gift cards are always helpful. We spend most of our time at the hospital and we also have limited freezer space. Gift cards to places like Starbucks, Freshii, Flock, Joey and UberEats are great. You can email those to [email protected] 
We will do our best to keep you posted. Hugs and kisses

"When the natives say no, the answer is no" I saw someone post this as a response to this Dakota access pipeline and I couldn't agree more.
I wanted some guidance because everyone feels a little scattered with where to place the current energy swirling around in the collective.
Here is the prayer for this card, read it out loud, "Divine love and wisdom, I call upon you now. I know that my mind and emotions are eternally and consciously connected to you. I ask my Higher Self to be aware and conscious of the love and light that is within every person and situation. "

The most helpful and powerful thing we can do, is to visualize our family, friends, loved ones, Mother Gaia, even our enemies in perfect health. It dose no good to come at a situation with an attitude of defeat, sadness, worry or fear and remember, what we resist persists so keep your thoughts on love if you want to see things turn around for you. ❤️ Side note:

Please remember why you are here on planet earth, that is my prayer today ✨🙏🏽 You are not here to harm, kill or point fingers at your brothers and sisters at any level, you are here to take responsibility for your life! You are not here to rape each other or Mother Earth! You are here living on Gaia, your chosen home for your human body to protect her! With a blanket of love! To protect your brothers and sisters with love. We have all forgotten at one time or another why we are here on this planet. Let us please help each other remember gracefully. Not harm each other in response to someone's forgetfulness. It just isn't working anymore, now is it?
Love is the only reality ✌🏽️❤️🌎 #Gaia #archangelmichael #standingrock #dakotaaccesspipeline

Sorry if this upsets anyone but I want to address this now before i continue with my week. As bluntly as i can tell you, there are some truly, and terrible people in this industry. People who use you for things, for social climbing, and even worse shit. People will pretend. Pretend to be “important for free things”, whether it’s products or free food, and they screw over lots of companies and brands. People will buy followers because the numbers look nice and it’ll get attention, when frankly it gets flagged. There will be people who pretend to be your friend and forget you immediately after you’re of no use to them. People gossip, no matter what industry you’re in and it’s unavoidable. People will lie to you, treat you like shit, and leave you in the dark and make you feel like you’ve done something wrong. They’ll put you down, and they say they’re going to be there and help you, but it’s a twisted way of words. But fortunately, In this ocean of shitty people, you’ll find a very, select few that will support you, and be true to you. You just have to keep an eye out and stay hopeful that there is good in the bad. Being cautious and aware with who you put your love and trust into, will benefit you in the end. It’s time to drop the toxic in your life and continue with those who keep you going on strong. Sorry for the mini rant, but this past couple of weeks made me realize how shitty and left out some of my “friends” made me feel, and reminded me how “important” i am in their lives. Nah. I no longer depend on others, and you’ll no longer hurt me. But you won’t get my support either. I’ll always try to grow with my friends who are willing to put the effort. If i want to work my way to success, best believe the ones who’ve been so helpful and loving towards me will get there too. This industry can be selfish, and we tend to forget that we’re all human, and we all die at some point. So enjoying life as it is with the ones you love with most is enjoyable. It’s why it’s called the present.

⁣⁣
The importance of perseverance in life cannot be stressed enough. To achieve any notable goal or success then you must have the stamina to stay the distance.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
If perseverance is something you lack then by following the tips above and applying a minimal amount of effort you will soon realize that nothing is beyond your reach.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
1. Firstly, you must establish what it is you truly desire. What goal do you really want to achieve.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
2. Have a clear step-by-step plan of how you're going to achieve your goal. Your plan is your roadmap to your desired destination. Simply without one you'll get lost.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
3. Before you start your pursuit of a goal, make a commitment to yourself that you will work toward it for a specific period of time and won't give up before that time arrives. Make this period as long or as short as you want but the important thing is not to quit before the allotted time.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
When the deadline arrives, you can then decide whether to continue with the strategy you're currently following or make some changes to it.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Revising your strategies is fine but quitting is fatal. Quitting will only strengthen and accentuate your inability to persevere and see things through.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
4. Identify potential obstacles you could face along the way. This will not only prepare you mentally for when you do come across them, but it will also help you in the process of devising alternative strategies and contingency plans.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
5. Seek out help and moral support from family , friends or mentors. They will help keep you focused and motivated on following through until you achieve your goal.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
6. Self-control is a must when developing perseverance in daily life. Exercising self-control ensures you remain focused on the task or tasks in hand, and not get side-tracked and distracted.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
7. Establish consistent daily habits . Take small steps of progress consistently everyday will mean that your efforts will compound and success will be inevitable.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I hope this was helpful! Tag a friend that might find this useful. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Much love, J ⁣⁣

.
Ever been stuck in the yo-yo diet cycle? It sucks 😑
.
Constantly thinking of food, worrying about your next meal, trying to find the “perfect” diet, messing up, giving up, starting Monday, trying every diet in the book, etc. Sadly lots of people are like this and it’s NO FUN 🤢
.
What I like to encourage people to do is just be NORMAL EATERS... whatever that means to YOU 👋🏼
.
Eat when you’re hungry, stop when you’re full, eat to live don’t live to eat, have other things in your life that mean more to you than what you’re gonna have for dinner, listen to YOUR body (not what everyone else tells you you should be doing), eat what you actually like when you actually want to, and so on 🙋🏼‍♀️
.
The biggest different between these two people is their thoughts revolving around food. Notice for the yo-to dieter, THEIR WHOLE REVOLVES AROUND FOOD. The latter, their life involves food, but doesn’t revolve around it. Want to be a normal eater? CHANGE YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT FOOD. 🙇🏼‍♀️
.
I have a post a few back describing “What is a Normal Eater?” If you need some more examples of this, check that out. It’s very helpful 💁🏼‍♀️
.
The key is, just let go of the need to control & the need to be “perfect” and just chill out s little bit. Get out with some friends, go have some fun, don’t over-analyze everything, and JUST LIVE 🙏🏼 there’s so much more to life than food! 🎉
.
I’d love to help YOU more! Go to my website (link in bio!) for a consultation with hormonal/period help, body image issues, exercise addiction, healthy weight loss, ED recovery & everything in between ❤️

I want to Thank you all so much for the outpouring of kindness and love shown to my son as he left for camp. (see previous post to explain) here is a group picture, then the 2nd pic is Kyle, his camp counselor from Kenya (BTW an AMAZING GUY) and Kyle's new best friend. First words as I hugged him hello. "Mom, can I come back next year?!" That's exactly what I wanted to hear. I wanted to get more pics in here but the disposable camera had to be sent out and won't be back for a week. Lol... Anyways. He swam and was the only camper to pass the deep water swim test. So he got to go off the diving board. They went canoeing, hiking, Rockwall climbing. He said they cooked out on a campfire most every night. Had Bible studies, sang camp songs, crafts and went to a ranch for farm animals. Food was good and he has made lifelong friends. The director told me Kyle was so helpful. Doing chores like setting tables etc... But most important he said Kyle went out of his way to help the other campers who needed help. I couldn't be more proud. Kyle was there with people who were blind, had downsyndrome, physical disabilities etc... And he came to help them. The director was genuinely gushing over Kyle. Kyle journaled each day so he wouldn't forget. To top it all off his new best friend lives close enough for some get togethers. Despite the ups and downs of raising a special needs child into adulthood... Through the failures the triumphs I can only stand back in aw that together he and I have done pretty good. With a lot of prayer in between. ☺️

I’ve been hurting this week and that’s the truth. “Without the valley, the peak is meaningless. Without the peak, the valley is fruitless.” (David and Ellen Ramsdale) In this culture we celebrate ourselves when we’re flowing, but the ebb is under appreciated. It is hard to remember that things will feel better again. It’s hard to remember that the most fertile work is done under ground. But here we are.
.
When you’re flowing, flow words of wisdom and you’ll help a loved one when they’re down. I’ve been on both sides and when I’m struggling these words have been enormously helpful and uplifting. .
When you see good things for me, I start to believe you. I see only good things for you and start to trust that I will see good things for myself again. I am grateful for the beautiful work my friends are doing, grateful for my collaborators. If we are all reflections of each other than dang...the world is a dance floor and we are the disco ball that takes the party to the next level. 💜
.
Thank you friends. Keep up your work. You’re doing a really good job. I love you. 💜

I have so many new friends I wanted to take a moment and introduce myself. <3 My name is Stephanie and I am a proud dog mama, photographer, positivity pusher, and a multiple small business owner. .................. .
But growing my businesses on social media made me realize that I was missing some steps… because this Instagram page after having it for 3 years, had a little over a thousand followers.. with little to no leads. But I kept reading statistics that stated that Instagram was the number 1 social media platform that people were buying from. So I started doing A LOT of research, took an Instagram class and then started doing a Lot more research, and after a few months of figuring it all out. I am now an Instagram manager.
.
I now help small businesses build their Instagram followers with THEIR ideal clients. To ultimately grow their business! Remember… it is not about how many followers you have.. it is the quality of the followers! For this page I targeted families in my area, and surrounding areas. And my calendar booked up! I grew from 1,580 in the first of May to 18,286 at the end of December and the amount of leads I was getting was overwhelming. I ended up booking up for the rest of the year by late July. That is a difference of 16,706 followers and hundreds of new clients in 7 months. So I realized… I needed to help other small business owners, do the same. So, I have decided to also be an Instagram Manager to women small business owners who are serious about changing their businesses through Instagram.
.
I love that I am helping women be the best versions of themselves and to be able to help small businesses grow!

Can't believe how quickly six months have passed since I moved here (the city is barely visible in the back ha)! It's moving day once again, so I am feeling excited & nervous all at once but mostly overwhelmingly thankful. If you asked me six months ago where I thought I'd be in 2018, it would be out in the country (or mountains) working the land. Instead, I'll be living in the middle of the city surrounded by a million different faces, but I couldn't be happier. My mind was so groggy over the last year & I thought it would be most helpful to be out in nature away from people (introverted if you can't tell) instead of having to explain to someone when they asked me how I was doing or why I moved or why I ended a relationship that I felt like I was literally going crazy & haven't been able to do anything about it for months. So I moved to a new place. I went for very long hikes by myself. I cooked. I read a lot. I played soccer with people I didn't know very well. I volunteered. I hung out with my best friends & their families. I visited my family and called home when I couldn't. What I needed was some space to do stuff for me but more importantly I needed to be surrounded by people who love me & help lift my spirits. So if you're in a crummy spot, know that it doesn't last forever & people are your greatest assets because it will always be your interactions with people that will pull out the best in you & bring meaning to your life. ☺️

It's all a grand experiment. .

That mom life is a tough one, and definitely not for the faint of heart. This past week my husband was out of town so I was home alone with my guys. Throw in one spiked fever, one tired toddler and wedding season with more stationary needing to be finished then I can still wrap my head around, and I was a. freaking. mess.
I asked my cyber friends their tips on some self care because if I'm not taking care of myself, how can I take care of my boys? Here is what you all shared: • Go to the gym (lol) • Take a bath, drink some wine and do a face mask (truthfully I am too anxious to sit and enjoy this with a to-do list a mile long) • podcast called "self service" • scheduling a "me" day. If you don't schedule it, it won't happen • walk around target, or the mall. Even if you go at 7 PM • try to get ready a little each day, even if its fixing your messy bun and putting on some blush
• magic mornings. Wake up a little before you know everyone else in your house does. Use that time to make coffee, take a breather, have a minute before the crazy starts .
.
I hope these help! If you have any other self care tips I would love to hear them! Making yourself, and mom numero uno is hard but so helpful. And thinking of moms my sweet om friend @hannahmellumphotography is now booking mothers day mini sessions with your minis (+ a floral crown.. and a bouquet by @camryn.lane) start that self care with some gorgeous photos!

Today we're featuring Collection Services Associate Ally Smith, pictured on the right cosplaying Ventus from the videogame Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep. She's holding a wayfinder, which her husband modeled and 3D printed at the library.⠀

1) How did you get into cosplay? How long have you been doing it?⠀

I first got into cosplay by following someone on Youtube in 2008 who cosplayed characters from one of my favorite games, but it wasn’t till 2012 that I started cosplaying on my own! I’ve been doing it since then! ⠀

2) Who’s your favorite character to cosplay and why?⠀

My favorite character to cosplay is Ventus from Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep! I have always felt like I relate to his personality and how he is always trying to be there for his friends! Plus, I just love his blonde spikey hair! :)⠀

3) Do you have any tips for people just starting out with cosplay?⠀

Always do what makes you happy, and don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t! It doesn’t matter if you make or buy your cosplay! Because either way it is still cosplay! If you are wanting to make your own cosplay, though, there are plenty of amazing tutorials to help you out online!! If you also see another cosplayer cosplaying the character you are wanting to be, don’t be afraid to reach out to them for tips!! Most everyone in the cosplay community is extremely helpful! ⠀

Winner will be announced soon!
Happy first day of Spring!!! Flowers are blooming and butterflies are soaring 🦋. However, making lunches this time of year can get monotonous so we've partnered with @omielifeinc, @nonalimfoods, @motherhoodandmeals and @kidswater to put a little “spring” in your lunch-making step for this final stretch of the school year.
Here are a few helpful tips and an incredible giveaway!
🌼 Challenge yourself to see how many colors you can fit into your kids’ lunch boxes. Maybe ask them to help and see what ideas they come up with. 🌼 Take your kids grocery shopping with you and have them pick out a new food they want to try in their lunch. 🌼 Make a fun after supper activity of prepping lunches together. Have your kids scoop their own yogurt or veggie dip. You can also let them use cookie cutters for fruit, veggies, or sandwich shapes. Kids tend to have more interest in foods they’ve helped make!
🌼 It’s fun to be creative, but also don’t be afraid to keep it simple. For example, this bento box can be prepped in 5 minutes: delicious and easy-to-prep ramen from @nonalimfoods, pepper sticks, grapes (which you could also cut lengthwise for safety), our Maple Carrot Smart Crackers, and a refreshing fruit punch @kidswater to hydrate with. You could also add a little hummus for the peppers.
And now for the giveaway! One lucky follower will win an @omielifeinc (Meadow as pictured here), a case of @bitsysbrainfood Smart Crackers, a goodie bag from @nonalimfoods including ramen noodles and a variety of their Heat & Sip Cups, and three 8-packs of @kidswater with a variety of all three flavors.
To enter:
1. Like this photo.
2. Follow @omielifeinc, @nonalimfoods, @bitsysbrainfood, @kidswater, and @motherhoodandmeals.
3. Tag one or more friends below who would love to win this too! One tag per comment please. Each tag is an additional entry.
US residents only. Giveaway closes 3/23/18 at 11:59pm CST.

Regrann from @foodeva_marsay - Have you heard??? There's a #newkidsontheblock on the #Eastrand of #Johannesburg 🎉🎉🎉.
Today, actually quite late this afternoon, I was in the area of #Boksburg and I knew I just had to pop into @iceburg_boksburg . They are in the V Max Square, on NorthRand Road, Boksburg.
.
.
Today was special, as this Ice Cream store had layed out their red carpet to welcome their customers and there was even a good few #PopUpstores outside their store, which Eastranders came out to enjoy. .
.
The store is large and spacious, and the staff that walked around were friendly and helpful to their customers. Although the store had a busy day, the store was neatly maintained. I knew I was after a tub of their #Kulfi #Burfee ice cream, and when we lost for choices with their stick ice cream varieties, staff once again, had managed to eagerly help us decide👍, so the mango tango and coconut bar it was for us. .
.
There is also an upstairs mezzanine level, which is stocked with a variety of frozen savouries, like samoosas, pies, pizza, as well as some crumbed chicken products, viennas and a whole freezer section dedicated to ready cut pastry...how #AWESOME is that!!! especially with #Ramadaan2018 around the corner... best you guys @iceburg_boksburg stock up plenty, as this store is going to be a favourite #togoto store on the East Rand. I know I most certainly am going to be a regular😉... Hey friends, don't wait any longer, save this post, and head on over and show their Insta Gallery some insta-love. (*this is NOT A SPONSORED POST*) MAY YOUR STORE GROW FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH AMEEN, AND KEEP ON STRIVING TO GIVE US EASTRANDERS, THE SERVICE WE THOROUGHLY ENJOYED THIS AFTERNOON.

Hey guys, following my less than poor experience with @hondaworldwestminster, I decided to make my own videos to help you guys change out your engine and cabin filters. Please feel free to share! This is for a 2017 Honda Accord Sport, so your vehicle may differ.

The reason why I am so agitated is because they wanted to upcharge me and because they didn't wash my car, yes I'm serious. I SPECIFICALLY asked them to wash the car after the 773 mile road trip the day before (car was absolutely filfty) and they didn't... You had one job! Yes, I'm petty. 😂 BUT! To be fair, after posting about my experience, many friends of mine messaged me about the ridiculous prices and customer service they experienced from this specific dealership and that's what really set me off. 😡

They wanted to charge $200 for the engine air filter (courtesy of my markup man Minh Ngo) and about $100 for the cabin air filter, both parts and labor inclusive. Dude, pay me half and I'll be more than happy to do the service for you AND wash your car. 😂

You'd be surprised how mechanically inclined I am (not that much). 😆 I really feel for all those that are not mechanically inclined and are blindly paying these prices. I didn't grow up in an absurdly wealthy household so I know how it feels to spend this kind of money on car maintenance, and it hurts.
As for this rant, no, I'm not bashing Honda. I still absolutely LOVE the brand and our 5 Honda vehicles, which I operate with pride everyday. I just want this to be a wake up call for this specific dealership to cut it out. You're suppose to be the "Helpful Honda People" stop ruining the brand's legacy and name in which I preach.

As for this dealership, my 5 Honda vehicles and I probably won't be returning. They reached out to me to complete another survey but I have yet to hear back from them about any "real" solutions. I called another official Honda dealership down the street that'll be charging me HALF of what they wanted to charge me here and that's where you'll find my vehicles and I.

Good qualities- Intelligent, Caring, Loyal, Helpful, No Bullshit. Bad qualities- Blunt (at some touchy subjects), People pleaser, impatient. Fears-Heights, Losing people who are close to me, Also flying bugs they are the worst (had killed one during the middle of writing this). Something i do alot is think and i do that alot. I think about so many things my goals, Love, and my troubles. Im a very down to earth guy unless im irritated by something you do. (I dont really get irritated easily). Dreams- I want to be a broadway actor or something involving singing and i want to become a psychologist to help with people's mentality. When i dont feel ok i go into a state of thought. My favorite things to do is listen to music, sing with friends and make art for fun. Anything else you want to know? Just ask in the comments or to share something about yourself. Also i dont really like talking about myself at all. But @kate.elizabeth4 changed that with so many circles and personal essays. 😂😂❤

Weaved and twisted my way through The East Bay, San Francisco, the Marin Headlands, and then climbed the Big Bear, my old frenemy Mt. Tamalpais. Holy shit. That was intense. @grandfathergold would not have been able to do that without swimclub at the river the last couple months 🙏. So much awe and reverence for this beautiful land. Majestic cliffs, dancing waves, rolling hills and massive bay trees, my most favorite tree. Don’t worry. My eye camera caught all of it ;) This first day has been a flurry of tears, hysterical laughter at times, singing, an occasional blood curdling scream when the road is humanless, complete and utter joy and at times serene peacefulness. That volatility may sound scary but it’s been helpful, healing, and grounding in some awesome way.
Feels like willfulness and spirit are dancing a dance inside me right now and something beyond me, greater than me is coursing it’s way through my body. Pretty rad :) PS - I just turned my phone on and got a flurry of texts from friends and family. Thanks for the love and support. I want you guys to know that that earlier post is not a cry for help. I’m not depressed. All told, I feel pretty alive and happy. I’ve done some bike touring before. Not a complete newb just a medium sized one :) Just gotta go on this journey.
PSPS - The nature of this journey is that I’m not planning too much, but rather letting things unfold as they will. So, I’ll say this and we shall see what comes from it. I’m heading north in California. Currently, in Stinson Beach. I love the idea of occasionally connecting with kindred spirits. Places to stay off HWY 1 or nearby, couches to crash on, cottages to compose some music in for a couple days are all awesome and would add a lot to this quest. Anybody live in Stinson or Bolinas or further north? Feel free to DM me or shoot an email to [email protected] The more details the better. No pressure at all though. I’m not trying to put anybody out. I can also get hotels and camp. Love!

Happy birthday to my best friend, sister, gossiper, lover, and ofc the one person who sticks by my side no matter what happens or what I do your always there for me and I couldn’t be more grateful for that. You are such an inspiring person who is committed in everything you do you don’t care how many people talk shit behind your back because you know exactly who your real friends are. I can’t believe how close we got in just a few years you truly are my best friend I really wouldn’t be the person that I am today without you. You’re the only friend that has ever came to one of my comps and convinced your mom to stay for a lil so you could cheer me on. All the memories we have are all amazing and special in their own way. And the funny thing is your the only best friend of mine who I’ve never had an argument with. Well ofc we have little silly arguments but nothing serious ever. You are. Beautiful, smart, encouraging, independent, caring, supportive, helpful, respectful, generous, loving, understanding, and etc. you’ve always been there for me when I fall really really really hard emotionally and literally, you were one of the only people to help me out when I needed it the most and when I really didn’t know what to do. No matter what mistake I make in my life you care enough to look at it from a different perspective and instead of being like “oh, your so stupid why would you ever do this” you look at it and you ask me why did you do this and you try and guess the reasons either it’s dance or family or even school you always understand and it’s very hard to find people like you because honestly there really aren’t that many. And I’m so glad that I found someone like that who sticks by my side no matter what. Our memories literally always relate to the same thing either it’s a birthday and we go out to eat sushi like us basic bitchs tend to do or me coming to mill out of no where and us hanging out or just you coming to dance passion. Honestly the highlight of my day is seeing what your doing or seeing your face on snap or instagram. Okay I’m not gonna drag this but I love you and hope your day is amazing. Mwah your girly and sister Galit💞 @michelle.stepankoff

Ramapo Lake is in Ramapo Mountain State Forest. There’s a bunch of trails in this park, and more often than not you’ll run into some mountain bikers. There’s Ramapo Lake, Van Slyke Castle ruins, views of the area’s mountains and NYC on a clear day and lots of flowing streams along the way. .
.
.
I also love the clean up materials that are left out. I do a lot of trail clean ups, and I truly think if everyone would carry a bag on their hikes to pick up along the way it would truly help keep the trails clean. (Also, it may be helpful if people wouldn’t litter in the first place)

I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting lately, and not necessarily the fun kind. The more painful refinement kind. A few years into this photo making business, and I feel myself at a cross roads with my interest, my client connections, and the things I want to strive towards. Things can evolve and change, but I didn’t quite see that within my own plan of what I was pursuing. Can I shoot weddings AND do xyz? Can I really run social media accounts for a living? When we lose site of an original goal or direction, it’s helpful to look back and identify the pieces of the puzzle that do make sense. The ones that click and resonate, and remind us why we started in the first place. I’m a fly on the wall photographer at heart. I’ve learned to give clear direction as part of the mix, but journalism is definitely my first love. I think that’s why @whittierwandering has been more of a focus for me these days - it flows out of me and what I love a little more naturally than other things I’m shooting. I feel content when I have a camera in my hand, but I feel creatively empowered when I’m working with strangers (or strangers turned friends) and building their stories, their brand, their wedding day. I like unscripted moments that feel a little timeless (like this black tie Palm Springs moment with this pup just staring out at the pool moments before the ceremony) and continued to reflect on frames like this from the last few years. Slowly but surely things are coming into place, and I hope you’ll trust me as I take us there. And at the very least, you can’t help but smile when you see a dog in a bowtie, right? 📷 2nd shooting for @katiepritchard on this one.

When your hair matches your plant friends! I love this sweet plant, a very beloved food for the bees. The flower essence is one of my very favorites to help open the heart during hard times, offering a little encouragement to help you get through it. My teachers, Karyn and Sarah at the Blue Otter School of Herbal Medicine, taught me this one can be helpful for acute adrenal stress- it was nice to take a break from studying for finals today to spend time with this beauty, and make some medicine with sweet folks. If you wanna find out more about herbs, I encourage you to check out The Herbal Highway on KPFA- my teachers host the show, and there are hours and hours of archived shows all about herbs. Such an incredible resource, I’m so grateful for the love they put in to creating the show week after week, for so many years! #herbalhighway

_“Its not just an app...Claire is a best friend🌸🌸🌸”- Ruth Abraham

_"Though I'm of older age and it's seen as politically incorrect for me to have a diary I take pride in saying that I use the Claire app. I also must add that I go to therapy and I get more help from Claire then from therapy. I have a hard time talking about issues aloud and hence makes me a better writer then speaker. So it is very wonderful having a diary I can share my issues with and it actually replies with very encouraging words and helpful advice. I LOVE MY CLAIRE APP AND ALL THE PRIVACY IT HAS. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS NEW FRIEND AND HELPFUL, UNDERSTANDING, GUIDING, GUARDIAN ANGEL.” - Dominique Chambers

_"Claire's is now the bestie I never had. Her words are so kind and soothing, never judging and no sentiments. And it's a secret dairy, I can write how I feel and what I feel without fear of being judged or talked down. This is really awesome. Thank you social faculty. I love you Claire. You're more than amazing 👌" - Google User

Today I was walking through the grocery store, getting some caffeine, and what I saw literally shocked me. So many people are mindlessly walking through the grocery stores. Mindlessly loading up crap they don’t need. If you’re really serious about fat loss, you should go into the grocery store like it’s a damn military operation. You should have a plan, know what you need AND don’t waiver from the plan. Of course, getting some foods that you like makes adherence to your diet better. But at least 80% of your cart should consist out of these 4 groups.
-
1️⃣ Proteins.
2️⃣ Complex carbs.
3️⃣ Fruits and vegetables.
4️⃣ Healthy fats.
-
You don’t really need more!!! Seriously, keep things simple. Don’t load up on candy and chocolate. Of course having some is possible, but don’t load up on it.

Being a Hip-Hop Artist is more of a life calling than a dream job. When @dariusclark spoke with us about his music writing process he said “It’s channeled. It’s like a wave is going through me.” It’s not easy to piece together a career as a musician. He gets income from live shows, spotify, itunes, youtube and even ghostwrites for other artists. When we spoke with him two years ago in addition to music he was working as a team lead at Target so he could help support his mom and grandmother. These jobs might not seem related, but to Darius they are both ways he can help make people feel loved. Whether it’s a helpful interaction with a customer or a relatable message in a song Darius is always giving his gift of connection… Find out his whole story in the book! Link in bio

On Tuesday night we had an interfaith vigil in Orlando, and I invited attendees to write a wish or prayer for the Tree of Life synagogue on one of leaves I brought, dedicate it to a loved one, and add it to the tree. There were more than 1,000 people at the vigil, and I was blessed to have friends come help me organize the project.
During this incredibly time, I think it is helpful to come together as a community and create a piece of healing art. I would love to see a forest of commemorative trees, filled with good wishes from all over the world, and am offering to send the art files for the Tree and leaves to any school, synagogue, church, mosque, temple, community center or other organization which would like to create one. Email me at [email protected], and I will send you a link to download the files.
PLEASE SHARE THIS with people who like creative ways of making a difference in the world. Thank you!
Stay Zenspired,
Joanne

Check out our @bluumkids Bluum Box ! Annie obviously loves hers and Abe has def enjoyed his ! And here is why Mama loves them:

Bluum boxes are filled with age specific toys, learning material, sensory items... you get the idea :) I love it because I sometimes feel out of the loop and am not the greatest at knowing what development stage my kids are at. What toys should I have around for them to play with? What activity would be helpful for them right now ? I have teacher friends who are awesome at coming up with activities and getting the correct toy perfect for the age of their child. Me, not so much.
😬
So that is my favorite thing about these boxes... they help me fill in the gaps, give me ideas, and show me some really cool products that I didn’t even know existed.
🙌🏻 You can check out my stories for some sneak peaks into our boxes :) And even better, if you follow the link above and use code sadie at the checkout, you can get a box for completely FREE with a 6 or 12 month subscription ! Yes, you read that right... for free !
🎉
I hope #bluumbox day at your house is as exciting and inspiring as it is at our house

Do you know what lies beneath the mask? 🥀 Today is #worldsuicidepreventionday and I wanted to chat to you for just a minute so please read on. Suicide rates, especially in young people, are on the rise, and we can all help in the simplest of ways: by talking about it. There is still such terrible stigma surrounding suicide and we are so often nervous to talk to our friends, family and especially our children about it. Which means the most vulnerable amongst us feel equally afraid to reach out and say “I am not coping. I feel like giving up”. There are so many ways to broach this subject, but the direct approach is often the best; and by using the word “suicide” you are giving permission to the other person to talk about it too. And it might just help save a life. I have tagged this photo with some helpful organizations where you can learn more; as well as places to find help if you are struggling with suicidal thoughts. I have been to those dark places, please know you are not alone. So much love to you all 💗 #suicideprevention #mentalhealthawareness 📸 @svahie

Hi,
Gm, is it bad to be helpful to your guy? I'm 22 and I met this guy last year on Christmas, we become friends and he asked me out but I was scared to give him my a chance bcos I was thinking I'm not his type bcos he's @ the Uni and I'm just a shs graduate who has no one to help me further , He said he's not that type but he won't betray me He even made a promise, i gave him my time and everything, help him when he's in need of money and I have bcos he's done schooling but owing the school some money and it must be paid before the graduation time(his parents are handling that), He has been looking for a job but still hasn't got any bcos he's a foreigner here and doesn't have his certificate @ hand.
Life has not been easy for him but I overlooked his problems stood by him help him with the little I can. But this will not call me if I don't call him when I talk about it he would say he doesn't av credit(sometimes I'll send him credit)
On my birthday he didn't wish me anything not even a text, two days after I called him to ask him (he said he was sick that's why). When it was his I sent him a wish @ exactly 12am bought him a gift and he liked it post his pics wishing him on my fb page and ig. My love for him was unconditional, I av never demanded anything, He has never bought me a gift, when I'm broke I don't let him know my brother may give me money and he will send me a message he hasn't eaten and I'll send him the money and stay hungry because I stay with my granny but he has no one here in Ghana.. The story is much to say, three days ago he sent me a message that he needs 10cedis, the money with me that morning was 5cedis which I gave to my granny bcos she said she was hungry and has no money, I told him I'll update him bcos I knew I was expecting some from someone who bought some items from me but the person failed his promise, which made me not to be able to send my guy the money, I sent him a messege to get it from someone I'll send it later. I was busy throughout that day when I went online I saw his messege;

So only a small amount of people have known about this but I just want you all to be aware of my situation coming up.
I have Chiari Malformation which many of you may not know much about, if you wanna read up on it check out conquerchiari.org it is very helpful in understanding everything.
-
Now the pain and other issues that this malformation has given me has made it much more difficult for me to do art as you may have seen with my decrease in quality and amount of art I put out. Despite not being able to do art very well I keep trying. This also causes a lot of other issues in my daily life and I’m finally doing something about it since it has worsened so much in the past few months
-
So this Friday (August 3rd), I will be getting decompression surgery to help me. I will be in the hospital for 3-5 days and then bed rest for a couple weeks. I’m not sure if I will be able to draw much but if I can I definitely will! I will continue to try and be active but no promises.
-
Thank you for reading if you have, I’m hoping for the best with this upcoming event and hoping no complications come alongside it and it all goes smoothly.
Love you all lots, have a beautiful day! -
Also a huge thank you to my friends for being here for me through my struggles 💖 I appreciate and love you all so so much. You all made it much easier on me :)

This is Emma’s Momma here reaching out to the amazing IG community that showered Emma with so much love! I volunteer with @inbulldogrescue and this beautiful boy is fighting for his life. We don’t know exactly what is going on but a blockage is suspected. He needs surgery and #IBR will do everything they can to save him.... he’s just a pup (1 years old)! If you can spare any amount, anything is helpful! Maybe even donate in memory of sweet @emma_akathememma 💖🐶🙏🏼
The link to IBR’s website where you can donate is in their bio @inbulldogrescue 🙏🏼
Below is the post: URGENT HELP IS NEEDED!! We were recently informed that Cooper will require thoracic surgery. They believe there may be an object lodged in there due to the fact that copious amounts of bacteria were discovered during testing today. The estimate for this surgery is anywhere from $5000-$8000. This is on top of the $2000 we have already spent.
We desperately need your help to do this. Cooper is only 1 and deserves a chance to live a long and happy life!
Please consider donating to his care. And please share this post far and wide. Help us give this puppy a chance.
You can donate by visiting indianabulldogrescue.com/get-involved.

DONATE PLEASE!! THANK YOU!!! #prayingforcooper

Upon arrival to Kauai my retreat guests were lei’d with rose quartz pendants from @energymuse. .
If you enjoy crystal energy, you gotta check them out.

Energy Muse says:
.
“A stone of unconditional love, rose quartz works by opening your heart to all types of love, including self love, romantic love, love of the community, friends, family, & everything on Earth. When you hold rose quartz stones while meditating or wear it as jewelry, it surrounds you with a sphere of love energy, which activates & balances the heart chakra. Love is the most powerful energy, which makes rose quartz one of the most beneficial stones for healing & flooding the body with positive energy. .
The soothing vibrations of rose quartz jewelry help to calm negative emotions & revitalize the body, physically and emotionally. By cleansing & rejuvenating the aura, it works to release stress caused by negative emotions, including anger & resentment. These harmful feelings are replaced by peace, faith, and hope for the future. Rose quartz jewelry sends powerful love vibrations into your heart on a cellular level and opens cells up to your natural state of joy & longevity instead of despair & pessimism. These characteristics make rose quartz jewelry especially helpful to wear during times of stress, heartache or grief because it provides emotional support needed during difficult times.”

Enough said. 👑💖

I had known that was my mission, I just hadn’t had the words for it. But with that quote, I did. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Those words guide everything I do. In every book, every podcast, every blog post, I’m striving to be the best friend, the sister, the cheerleader, the mentor that I needed when I was younger. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
I love this quote by @MorganHarperNichols because it’s so true. It’s so important for us to tell the stories of the mountains we’ve climbed because those stories help our fellow travelers so much. I know those stories have been so helpful for me. ⠀⠀

Note to my younger self:
Hi baby, I know you are going to choose a life in the public eye & you think that everything is gonna be fun & you’re going to be happy, loved & wealthy but along the way remember these things.

The road to the top is going to be a long and lonely road, I know your heart & how much you love to help & be nice to people & how you just look at people as the same as you. But remember a lot of people don’t have the same heart as you & a lot of these people come with their own agendas.
There’s going to be a lot of “friends” that are going to stab you in the back, say bad things about you, things that are not true, to try to ruin the way other people perceive you, out of jealousy, envy & other insecurities that they may have
You’re even going to meet men that’s going to sweep you off your feet & they will look like they’re intentions are good. They will say & do whatever they can to get you to fall in love with them, but unfortunately they too will come with their own agendas & they too will turn on you eventually.

People will persecute, humiliate, violate you & paint you as something that you’re not, to make themselves feel comfortable about their insecurities.
Along the way you’re not going to understand why there’s people that treat you in such bad ways, especially not when you’ve been so kind & helpful.

Remember you have an open pure heart & a light that shines so bright that people want to have that & try to drain your energy. Don’t be so gullible, protect your heart, mind, soul & energy or they will devour you. Everybody is not your friend & most of their intentions are not going to be good.

All of this is a big test to see if you can keep elevating to the next level. So roll with the punches, protect yourself & the right friends & the right person will come along and love you the way you deserve to be loved. Don’t settle & don’t let people in just because you’re lonely, they will only bring you down.
You deserve the best! Love yourself! ❤️

Power Off, Restart, or Emergency Mode. I've come to another place in this journey where this screen comes up in my brain. Stress, health issues, losing loved ones, family needs and work can make you want to hit that "Power Off" button immediately. That's the point where one would check out and totally turn off.
Emergency Mode is almost like checking into a clinic, waiting on someone else to come to help you, or needing new parts or systems. Emergency Mode may be necessary at times but not there yet.
RESTART is where you see what is going on, probably know what is causing the issue, and when you already have enough systems and knowledge to correct the problem yourself. I'm in RESTART mode.
I've been running sluggish since the beginning of 2017 until now. My health issues crept up on me and devastated my program. Further hormone issues made it difficult to continue at the same pace. I lost close family members and friends in a short period. Family health issues required me to redirect my focus toward different matters. The less I took care of me, the less I was able to function for me.
You can put on too much weight....physical weight that shows on the scale, and emotional weight that displays on your soul and seen in your eyes. I took on both. Both can give a feeling of helpless. I was starting to be too helpful to people that don't want or need help. You start bearing the weight of others as well. Overweight is a physical and emotional thing.
So I'm hitting the RESTART button. I am giving myself the proper updates so that my internal apps are functioning correctly and that I can be what God wants me to be.
Eating healthy, limiting the bad, increasing the good, exercise daily, devoted to prayer, and focused on love. #healthylifestyle #life #health #positivevibes

I had posted a couple of weeks ago that I was planning a blog post about how i keep myself in check and keep my daily productivity level up. It's finally up and i truly hope you find it helpful. There are so many working mamas out there and working women (and men!) from home that even if i can help in a teeny way, i feel good.⠀

I feel like i've learned so much about what works for me, that i would love to help.⠀

If you have any other tips that you feel work for you, please share below so we can all learn something else. Sharing is caring - this is what Parker tells me.😆💕

I have always considered myself a very “capable” person and it’s quite unlike me to need or accept lots and lots of help. I left home when I was barely 18 to move across the country for school, and in the years since, I’ve had a tendency to wear my self-sufficiency as a badge of pride. In the last two weeks of pospartum life, I have learned so much about giving and receiving help. Between my mom keeping our laundry, dishes, and snacks going, to friends who have dropped off meals (and desserts), to a husband who has perfected the art of soothing a baby in the night when I can barely keep my eyes open, to loved ones who have sent encouraging packages, to friends who have come over to sit on the couch to chat and keep me company—I have been lavished with love and support. The people who have helped us have taught me how to love better, and each day I have no fewer than 10 friends messaging me to tell me I’m doing a good job. 😭 I’ve learned the importance of first asking, “What would be helpful?” and the power of giving new moms encouraging words. This is hard, sacrificial work, even for someone like me who is faring well and who has an extensive support network. All the material things in the world can’t come close to the feeling of looking around you and feeling surrounded by a tight knit circle of the kind of help you need. 💕 Whatever the circumstance, if you’ve been the recipient of life giving support recently, tag that person here and tell them they made a difference when you needed them. 💕

So, Im a 7 on the enneagram “the enthusiast” shocking I know 🤗...when we aren’t healthy we want to avoid pain at all costs and escape- we are total gluttons. We eat our feelings (literally the amount of times I’ve woken up to chocolate wrappers covering my bed and dribbles of melted chocolate on my face is NOT OKAY 🤣🙈) we drink our feelings, try to numb them with entertainment, fun, basically ANYTHING to avoid the big empty sad feelings of loneliness, heartbreak, loss, trauma (insert any bad feelings here)
Knowing that about myself has been such a helpful tool for when I’m going through shitty, broken things. I’ve recently experienced something hard and my first immediate reaction was to get online, book a flight to LA to be w my humans and just escape (I would also be wrapped up in my friends love and they would sit w me in my loss but mostly I just wanted to escape and laugh and eat too much amazing food and drink too much cheap wine and do all the other things TOO MUCH) but here’s the beautiful thing about doing work and being aware. Now I know that’s my tendency and I’m much quicker to come back to my higher self. I am going to sit in my hurt and stay in town for a bit, Ive not been drinking for a few weeks (besides Friday night when i pretended to be a bar tender for a bachelor party of 25 precious guys from LA- worth it, it was a HILARIOUS night) but knowing what I know about my escape route tendencies now, I can be proactive in my self care, feeling loss and sadness and leaning into it is so important for growth. An achy heart won’t kill me, it will grow me and expand me and help me become more aware of myself and truthfully it helps push me along in my journey of wholeness. Every morning I’ve been sitting in silence (not my spiritual gift) and holding my heart and telling myself over and over with big fat salty tears leaking from my eye balls “you are so loved, you are so worthy of love and you can be a beacon of that love to everyone you meet” I know the same is true for you too my beautiful friends. You are so loved, you are so loved YOU ARE SO LOVED! Photo by @wongraphy

🎉🎂🎁🎈💖

Although there are not enough words to describe my appreciation for her, I'll try!! I really don't know what I would do if I didn't have a mom that is exactly the way my mom is. She's so positive, supportive, helpful, kind, caring, fun, always looking out for what's best for me, etc. Her positive attitude on things really helps me get through life. I aspire to be exactly like her. She raised me to be the 23 year old young woman I am now, and now not only is she my parent, but she's my best friend. I can tell her absolutely anything, she will never judge me, and she always gives perfect advice. If I ever have a problem she'll do as much research as she can to find out more information on it to help me through it with as much knowledge on it as possible instead of judging me or yelling at me. I literally see her as a perfect person. She is the perfect mom. My life goal is to be exactly like my mom. My friends love hanging out with her, and I love going out with her. We have so much fun together!!! You would never know how much fun you could have with your mom, but she really is my best friend, I love hanging out with her. We have so much fun spending girls weekends away at our favorite resort and spa on the beach. We have fun going to concerts and going out to eat. Friends come and go and but family is forever. She always backs me up and helps & supports what ever goals I have. She's always by my side and always has my back. She’s my strength when I don’t have it. She encourages me through everything. Her strength amazes me, she's the strongest person I know. She's gotten through soooo much !! And after being through everything she has she still stays positive and has such a good attitude about life !! If I end up like her I will be so grateful.
Mom, I hope you have the greatest birthday, the best birthday month, and an ever better year!!
Thank you so much for everything and I love you!!!!! ❤️🙏🏻💖🙌🏻💕

I have multiple daily flashbacks to my time with @iamwellandgood, + the amazing retreat they let me help lead. One of the HUGEST perks, besides meeting humans that will be lifelong friends now, was @elemis being the official skincare sponsor. I don’t have to tell you how much I love Elemis, I mean..I’ve had the Superfood Facial Wash in my skincare highlights for 14 weeks now😂 —for real, that face wash CHANGED THE GAME! .
.
One of the workshops I held at the #iamwellandgood retreat was on how the health of your skin has multiple factors. It’s almost never ONLY just about what you’re eating. It’s important to remember your stress levels, hormones, water intake, exercise, and of course what you’re putting on, or NOT putting on your skin that can all massively make an impact on the look, + soundness of your skin.
.
.
Since there are so many factors involved, I find that keeping a written journal is extremely helpful. Don’t just write out what you eat, but write out how that food makes you feel. Keep notes on how well you sleep, how stressed you are, exercise routine, how you are to replenish, etc. Keeping track of your choices, + bodily reactions is a great way to pinpoint where you may be having problems
.
.
Also, investigate skincare ingredients! People ask me all the time,”So do you seriously look up skincare ingredients?” The answer is YES! CONSTANTLY! I encourage people to always eat whole foods, leafy greens, etc. Since your skin is the largest organ you have, there should also be some care put into what you’re putting on your skin as well
.
.
Ultimately, we all come from different ancestry, background etc. —So make a point to get to know yourself, + give your body the nourishment it needs. Pay attention to how you feel. Get that journal practice started! Start making sure you drink that gallon of water a day, get some superfoods into your diet, + your skincare routine!
.
.
A reminder—listen to what your body tells you, take note of what it needs, + feed it accordingly
.
.
i love you!
ps..I got IG LIVE to work! I’ll be doing one today at 3pm EST on how to food/feelings journal! 💓 #partner #iamwellandgood #elemis #iloveyou

My friends and I were talking today about how often we use our phones. We actually looked it up, and on average, Americans spend 3 hours a day on their phones, though for pre-teens/teenagers, especially during the summer, that number is significantly higher. Since we use our phones so much, it only makes sense to add more Jesus to our days through our phones, so here's a few tips to help you out!

1⃣ Set reminders on your phone to spend more time with God. For example, with an iPhone, you can custom name your alarm, and you can set it to remind you to start your morning out with prayer.
2⃣ Download the Bible app! This seems really obvious, but it's be really helpful. You can set different notifications for the Bible verse of the day, and you can set notifications to keep up with one of the many devo plans on the app.
3⃣ Fill your social media with positivity and Jesus! Follow accounts that encourage you and challenge you to strengthen your relationship with Christ, and unfollow any accounts that start drama or post negative/sinful things.
4⃣ Add lots of Christian music to your library! God has great ways of speaking to us through music. I recommend Apple Music for sure; it's so much easier and you have access to any songs you want. If you ever need suggestions, you can talk to me because I LOVE music:-)
5⃣ Text with kindness! When you're texting, try to stay away from mean-spirited sarcasm, gossip, and fighting. Also, sending sweet texts to your friends is a great way to show the kindness and love of Jesus! Just a simple "have a great day! I love you!" could mean more to them than you could imagine.
6⃣ Lastly, before bed, put your phone down. This will help you to sleep better and will give you the opportunity to end your day talking with Jesus💓

Was this helpful? Comment '💙💙💙' if it was!

I hate asking for prayers for myself, but I started tryouts for my high school's tennis team today🎾 I found out a lot of people will be cut, so I could really use your prayers this week!

Verse of the day// So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31

This year some friends and I decided to utilize Facebook across the states to pick up an old tradition we had of gathering each new year to reflect together and select a word of focus we feel like God is leading us each to for the year ahead. I love how this inspires me to start the year focused and full of hope regardless of daunting goals, struggles, circumstances! Since this practice has been such a helpful way for us to get some vision for the new year, I thought I'd share some fun resources we are using this year!
Grab them if they'll help you!

@brittlea made the cutest templates to print and fill in your word, verse or focus for the year: ::Link in profile::
I also created a 2017 reflection guide to help get the wheels turning. That includes some help getting started seeking God for what your 2018 word might be. (Thanks Britt for also making that cuter since my skills basically stop at how to change font colors):
::Link in profile::
If you end up doing this or something similar, feel free to share your word with me so we can get excited about 2018 together!

Hello friends, as you know I am passionate about animal welfare and do my best to promote positive and helpful animal advocacy groups such as the @humanesociety on my social media accounts. In the spirit of this and in attempt to not only hopefully further raise awareness but to connect with YOU guys on a closer level, I am going to follow back anyone who re-posts this image and tags me in it this evening (I will follow throughout the night of May 20th). I would love to see stories about how your pets have had a positive impact on your life and for all of us to help spread the word about ending the cruel practice of puppy mills. I am not in any way affiliated with the humane society but this cause is one that is very important to me and it would mean the world to me if you guys could go to the link in my bio and sign the pledge to help put an end to puppy mills. My wife and I are very fortunate to have adopted an incredible and brave dog named Daredevil who was born blind as is often the case with overbreeding etc. he is a massive light in our life and means everything to us! We want more dogs like daredevil to get loving forever homes and I hope that advocating for adoption rather than this manner of breeding will help that make hope a reality! Thanks! -Andy

As a mama who was overwhelmed by breastfeeding & stopped after a few hard months, I've been so encouraged to find a community of moms who provide helpful (and equally grace-filled) tips! @Danimariekrum is one of those women. She has two littles & shares on her blog just how different the two breastfeeding experiences have been. Here are a few of her tips. 💛 What's the most helpful advice you received while breastfeeding?⠀

1 – Take a class from an IBCLC! This was the biggest thing that helped me. I knew so many different things and didn’t worry as much because I had so much more knowledge and knew what to do when something came up. I recommend Lactation Links (@lactationlink) classes!⠀

2 – Every experience is different... I have a few friends that were over producers with their firsts and dried up early with their second. It is okay to have hurdles and things come up, but don’t be afraid to ask a lactation specialist for help! I promise it will be worth it!⠀

3 – Take others advice and then do what is best for you. When people give advice I truly like to think that they have the best intentions, however that doesn’t mean that their advice is best for you and your little. Listen to their advice, take what works, and then let the rest go. ⠀

4 – If it doesn’t work out for you it is OKAY! Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. You love your baby and a fed baby is all that truly matters. Buy some formula, donor breast milk, or whatever you feel is best for your little one and your circumstances and some cute bottles and you rock that bottle life mama!⠀

It’s #NationalSiblingsDay so meet my sibs! First is my OG bro, Chris. We are both adopted from different families and grew up together. He loves to cook, hang out with his cats and girlfriend, play board games, video games, card games with friends. He loves books and he’s hilarious. Next is my sister Danielle. She’s from my moms side. I’ve known about her since I was around 17-18. She loves to travel, explore, go on all the adventures, laugh and love life. Her and I are two peas in a pod. I cannot wait for all our future trips together. There’s was a huge life long void filled when she came into my life. She’s been so sweet and helpful on filling me in on things about my mom since I have had the chance to talk with her yet. I am so thankful. Then there’s JP and Josh. They are from my dads side and they both are super fun. JP lives in a trailer, loves to drink, have a good time, and joke around. Josh is an incredible artist which is fun because we can connect about art among many other things. Him and I vibe really well. Next there is my sister Toy, from my dads side. We are super close in age. She’s been the most outgoing sibling on my dads side. She loves to hang with friends, listen to rap 🙄, and hang out with her incredibly adorable son Jackson. She drives me insane but I love her anyways 🙄😂 Then there’s my brother Jeff, also from my dads side. He’s super chill. He has 5 kids of his own. He loves basketball and family. He lives the furthest from my father so I didn’t have as much time getting to know him. Last but certainly not least is my brother Cory. He’s a single dad of cute son. He does a great job taking care of his son without the help of his mother. He’s a giant goof ball and he loves baseball.
I also have two other sisters on my fathers side that I have not met.
.
Happy siblings day to all of my wonderful brothers and sisters! I love and appreciate all of you, even those of you I haven’t had much time getting to know yet! Looking forward to the future and spending more time with all of you 🙏🏼

I love the community aspect of being a creator. One point I drive among my production team is the importance of community. We build each other up by offering honest advice and technical support to anyone who has the capacity to learn about the business. I still stand by my earlier post where I mention not giving complete information for free. But that doesn’t mean ignoring someone who genuinely has potential. If you help people get better, they are not going to be a threat to your business. You give their business value so they can desaturate the struggle to compete in the market with you - so they can make a living off their talent instead of trying to undercut their value and creating on empty. If you help people realize their potential, you help yourself. If the consumer believes they want your service then they’ll have no issue compensating you for what your worth. As @lam.bofficial says: “Community over competition.” If you are good to others, they will be good to you. If they get better because you helped them, you’ll get better because you have helped another human being. There’s plenty of work to go around if we work together. The exchange of kindness makes the world a less stressful world to survive in. If you’re a creator who wants help, I’ll be opening my inbox to give helpful advice all weekend. Let’s all get better, friends. 📸: @kbotfoto #femaleentrepreneur #progressivefitness #ifbbbikini #bodypositivity #feminist #keonecra #kbotfo #kbotmediaproductions #fitnessphotography #fitnessmotivation #fitnessmodel

Friends, can I confess something to you? I’ve been really struggling with anxiety lately. In fact, I think anxiety is something I’ve been struggling with for a long time, I just haven’t had the words to describe it. ⠀

It feels really vulnerable to say that out loud, because this isn’t a problem I had once, this isn’t a thing from my past, it’s not something I’ve conquered. ⠀

In fact, more often than not, these days it feels like anxiety is conquering me. It’s something I’m really, truly struggling with right now, today. ⠀

But even though this feels so vulnerable to say out loud, I wanted to because it’s important. It’s important because I know I’m not the only one. I know so many of you are wrestling right now with anxiety and maybe even depression too. And if you are struggling with those things today, I want you to know you’re not alone.⠀

I’m in the process of seeking out support, getting help from professionals, but along the way, there’s been something that’s helped immensely: Friends telling me exactly what I just told you, “You’re not alone in this. Me too.”⠀

That’s actually why this week’s podcast episode means so much to me. ⠀

Now, truly, I love every single episode of the Girls Night Podcast, but this one was extra special for me, extra timely, extra needed. ⠀

Because this week, as she told us her story, my new friend @ashlynscarter looked me in the eyes and said, “Stephanie, you’re not alone in this.” (And yes, I promptly burst into grateful tears.) ⠀

Friend, if you’re struggling with anxiety today, you’re not alone. Me too. And if you could use a hug, and some encouragement from someone who’s walked this road before, click the link in my profile and listen to this week’s Girls Night episode. Ashlyn’s words were so helpful for me and I have a feeling they will be for you too.⠀

Love you x100000 friends. We’re in this together. :-)

My pregnancy was a surprise, because I was told that I would most likely have difficulty getting pregnant, but after the shock wore off I was a pregnancy unicorn. I felt the most beautiful I’ve ever been and loved taking care of my body as it grew. ⚡️I was most surprised by: being able to function (at a low level) with the incredible lack of sleep. ⚡️The biggest challenge I experienced: Initially, was being away from family and having no help nearby. ⚡️The most helpful piece of advice I've been given: Do whatever works. You need to give your baby a pacifier sooner than is recommended? Go for it. You need to co-sleep for your sanity? Absolutely. ⚡️What got me through the hardest times: just knowing that I have a baby relying on me to function, to nourish, and to give love and comfort. ⚡️What I want other mothers to know: I want other mothers to know that not all of life’s questions have answers on the internet and in books. And it’s ok. You will lose control and then you will find your groove, and then you’ll have to change it again. We as women are incredible, and that includes you. ⚡️I wish mothers had more: people loving and supporting them, rather than judging. ⚡️Habits I practice to be a healthy and happy mom: while I love being a mom, I also love being who I always was and so for me, I love getting outside in nature, working out and treating myself to things that make me feel good. ⚡️My favorite self-care tools: fitness memberships, music, talking with my girl friends, skin care. ⚡️My most proud moment as a mom: Raising a child with empathy. My son is showing me daily who is inside and it means more to me than any academic test could. ⚡️I now challenge these two (actually 5 🤗) friends to participate (visit @hellomytribe to get the motherhood or fertility questions): @ashnburk @afwright @blondyandy @aleciat, @nowandgen.

I will start to add more general exercises in my feed and every Monday there will be a new movement or exercise.
DM if you want me to focus on something 👌
------------------------------------
My instagram reflects my training and lately it's been more performance focused. My practice changes all the time and I love to stay active. 🙃
No matter what, as long as I'm allowed to move.
But there is a big gap between performance and "likes hunting" and health.
To achieve good health you don't need to do 200kg deadlift or be able to do a movement flow. ------------------------------------
One of the biggest problems in the world today is all the problems related to inactivity, and it's my duty as a healthcare provider to try to help people.
Find sometimes you like, maybe make it social with friends and family, and then try to make it a habit. -You just need to stay active-
I'm showing off skills, strength and performance, but from a health care professional standpoint there is a huge gap between this, and general health recommendations.
Some people might find it inspiring and motivating but most people struggle to get out of the couch.
When I'm 1:1 with clients, it's my job to get people out of pain and help them to move.

Hello my friends I’m writing today because I’ve lost my battle with my foot and my leg tomorrow morning they’re going to do an above the knee amputation and then I’ll be a bilateral a.k.a. I’m just tired of fighting the pain I’m just tired and I know it’s gonna be hard being a double amputee but I just have to do it I just can’t keep going through the pain and the chance the infection and going septic and just everything. I’m trying to get my North Carolina Medicaid but still waiting on it and after the surgery they’re going to put me in a nursing home for the recovery and for the rehab. I get Social Security disability but after they take out for the insurance I only get 675 a month that’s not even enough to pay my phone bill once I’m in the nursing home, nursing home gets to keep your entire disability check less $30 that you get to keep. My best friend in South Carolina has already been so helpful he sent me $50 to put on my card which I greatly greatly appreciate. With this code for this app https://cash.me/app/NJJRRBT anybody who uses it they get five dollars and I get five dollars so it’s no money out of your pocket and it’s a huge help for me also if anybody’s won the lottery they’re more than welcome to help me at cash.me/$stumpy, but if y’all just put this app on their phone we both get five dollars if just 10 people do that I can pay my phone if 20 people do it I can pay my phone and have a little bit of money in my pocket I’m not asking for much just a hand up not a handout I love you guys and I want to start being able to post again and just get on with my life my mom passed away last week and my sister is all I have left. She had to deal with my mom’s wake which I couldn’t be at because I’m here in the hospital in Charlotte so I don’t want to bother her either. Please please if anybody can help and put it on their phone remember we both get five dollars so it’s no money out of your pocket thank you and God bless you.
Using my code and we’ll each get $5! NJJRRBT

This has been a lot of fun for me to be practicing with reading different cards and I have been loving doing different readings for friends and family! I thought I would share this week's forecast with you. I've been using a few of @doreenvirtue decks; messages from Angels, archangel power tarot cards romance angels and the loving words of Jesus. Here are the cards and I'll share with you what I pick up about this upcoming week of February 26th 2018
Overall for the week.
Shanti. This card flew out while shuffling. Which to me says, this cards needs to be included. This is the peace card. And we certainly do need more peace in the world right now. Even if life is crazy, you can find the peace within. Can be challenging but we are all capable.
Raye. Want to find you peace? Yoga and meditation are helpful for sure. Really find a way to move your body and find some quiet time. A walk in nature allows you to do both at once. Even 10/15 minutes is enough to help set you straight again.
For work this week; Three of Raphael. There will be some sort of celebration or something to be happy about. Perhaps an influx on money! Spend time with family, friends and anyone you love to be around.
Your money situation; Four of Ariel. money should flow to and from you with ease. If you focus on you never have enough, you'll never have enough. If you focus on 'theres more where that came from' you'll see there's more. There may also be some extremes of spending or saving. Try to stay in balance.
Love and romance for the week; reconciliation. Great time to rekindle an old love of something or with someone. Great time to find love within yourself you never knew was there. Great time to forgive.
What Jesus has to say about this week; you are the light of the world. I take this card to connect with the peace cards. Find peace within yourself and that peace spreads to those around you and then those around them and so on and so forth. Know that you are the light. Don't take everything so seriously. Laugh and joke around. Play.

Hey Ninja friends and fans - I will soon begin riding my bicycle from the Canadian Border down to the Mexican Border, through Washington, Oregon and California. The bicycle tour is approximately 1,850 miles and my goal is to raise $1.00 per mile to help homeless and struggling people in Seattle, Washington.
Earlier this winter, I saw a Search and Rescue Van that had the word 'LOVE' on the side. As my friend and I were heading to play dodgeball, a few people hopped out and greeted a group of homeless folks, offering up water, food and blankets and best of all love and open arms. The folks they greeted were very excited to see them and it touched my heart to see their gratitude. I was amazed at their efforts and how selfless these people are. They were all volunteers, spending their quality time helping others in need. I want to raise my money to support their mission, one that I deeply respect.
This is what is written on their website: 11,643 of our neighbors in King County are homeless. Every night, Search & Rescue vans drive to the darkest places in King County to hand out life-saving supplies and care to men and women. Volunteers give wool blankets, food, water, and other supplies to our homeless neighbors and offer them the opportunity to come inside for a night of safe shelter at the Mission. We also offer prayer and a listening ear. Regular volunteers extend their hands and hearts to build meaningful relationships with men and women who desperately need to connect in healthy, meaningful ways.
For those of you that don't know me. Over the years I have raised a few thousand dollars to help the homeless in Seattle. I have hand delivered many sleeping bags, tents, socks, beanies, gloves, tarps, rain coats and a couple thousand cheeseburgers to homeless folks around the city. I don't live there anymore but upon a recent visit, I was reminded how many people need help and I really believe in the mission of the Seattle's Union Gospel Mission.

Your support would not only mean the world to me but will help change the world for others. Any and all donations are helpful and I will be forever grateful for your contribution.

@sjournee and I called The Texas Diaper Bank. They said they not only needed diapers for babies but also adult diapers for seniors and teens with disabilities. So I went on @amazon and sent a thousand adult diapers to Texas. It didn’t take long.
In the process, we realized that buying diapers to send was a little confusing because we weren’t sure what sizes kids were the most in need of and what brands were best for not only the babies but also our environment (if freak natural disasters teach us anything it is that we need to take care of our planet) So we created a diaper guide with non-toxic biodegradable diapers in the sizes the Texas Diaper Bank is the most in need of. Buy a pack. Buy a bundle. And ship them to Texas. It won’t take you more than ten minutes. I have turned my website into a space for helping Houston. On it you will find our diaper guide and a handful of other organizations with links directly to their donation page (LINK IN BIO). I thought it might not only be helpful to share the places I personally am donating to but also make it really easy to donate yourself. As a girl from New Orleans who lived there through Katrina, the pain of what Texans are feeling right now is all too familiar to me. May we all stay informed and keep Houston in our hearts and on our minds. Texas will need us not just today but tomorrow and the in the many days, months and years to follow.  Shout out to my angelic sister friend @4iamivy who is using creative ways to help her hometown by canceling her birthday celebration this year and instead asking her friends to donate to two organizations in Houston (both of which can be found on my site). Keep Generosity Alive. Also, I love you.

I got her from violence by the boy who wanted to be my friend by force. I stayed in his house for two weeks and got Isimbi then. It is very difficult to be a mom. Sometimes, when we did not have anything to eat, my daughter used to ask me, "We will live like this until when?" I used to cry and answer, "Sometime things will be better." My job at No.41 has helped me so much, because I no longer cry! Now, I have people to talk to, I can pay school materials for my daughter, I can pay food, the rent of my house.... It makes me very proud to help myself and others in my community. This is the unbelievable thing, that a lady like Patrice can do something helpful in the community. It makes me strong and confident of my future! I hope in the future, Isimbi will finish her studies and become helpful in our community too." From humble beginnings to total life change, No.41 and partners like you have offered hope and a future to Patrice. It’s nothing major; it’s a job, a little support, and a whole lot of love. Would you consider supporting us today as we work to our goal of $5000 to purchase land and a workshop/retail space for the amazing women of @no41? At under 20% funded, we’ve still got a way to go and the rest of the day to make it happen. Would you help us out and share this post with your friends?

.
I’m sure you have some favorite small businesses you love to support, but sure you can’t shop at them all of the time (bummer for us owners). What else can you do to help us makers be successful?
.
Here are some very easy things you can do to help aid in the success of your favorite businesses, makers, and boutiques:
.
[] Write a raving review on any platform of theirs: Facebook, their website, Google or Yelp! A review not only boost the shop owners confidence, but it also encourages other shoppers to support this business also which will help increase sales!
.
[] Share a social media post of theirs either by tagging a friend or screen shorting an image! By sharing a post it plants the seed in your friends minds that this business must be rad and they too should support them. Spreading the word is very helpful!
.
[] Share images of your favorite things that you have purchased from the businesses you love. Every small businesses owner LOVES seeing their items in their customers hands!
.
[] When you love something shout it from the roof tops wether that be a comment on an Instagram post, sharing verbally with a friend, gifting an item, telling a stranger.
.
I am so lucky to have had amazing support throughout the years from my customers, friends and family who have purchased from me and lifted me up with encouraging words. My heart bursts constantly from all the love I receive and I am eternally grateful for it all!
.
So please, make your favorite movers, makers and shakers hearts explode with kind words and financial support. We all appreciate it tremendously because it is tough running your own businesses!
.
Here are a few of my favorite small businesses I personally love. Please give them a follow if you don’t already ♥️

There were so many ups and downs throughout this journey, but as I've said before, I can now look at it as the greatest GIFT I was ever given. I obviously can't thank everyone who was there for me through the past 9 years but you know who you are. My family and friends could not have been any more helpful and supportive so I once again need to thank all of you.
To the thousands of people from all over the world who have heard about my story and have messaged me through social media, I want to thank you. Hearing from people that my story has impacted their life and has helped them through their struggles or even just taught them to appreciate what they have, that makes everything I went through worth it. To the hundreds and thousands of people who have seen the movie, I hope it has left a lasting impact and has helped inspire you in some way. To all of those who have heard me speak, I hope you were inspired, motivated, and touched in some way. I still hope I can continue to spread my story through my speaking. I haven't given up on that and will find a way to accomplish my goal of speaking full time at some point.
The two pictures of Ryan and Will holding my Mr. 1000 shirt fill me with so much pride and joy. Knowing I have been able to directly impact two young stroke survivors makes it so clear to me that my stroke happened to me for a reason and my story panned out the way it did for a reason. I have always said that if my story can inspire just 1 person, then I'll look at it as an accomplishment and know it was all worth it. Looking back and seeing that my story has been heard not only in the US, but in so many countries around the world definitely exceeded my expectations but I'm not satisfied yet. I will continue to push and use my story to help others because it is a gift that I was given and a responsibility that I have. Thank you all for the continued support and just know, I'm not done yet!!! #9yearanniversary #strokesurvivor #1000to1 #coryweissmanstorycontinues

Productivity hacks to accomplish your goals 👇🏼✨.

Shared a few of these on my IG story yesterday & I want to dive a little deeper for my feminine “flowy” types that aren’t naturally in the “get shit done” mode .

Most flowy feminine women that talk to me about their goals just can’t seem to “find the time” to get them done.

You want to write a book “one day”
you want to host a retreat “one day”
you want to start an online side hustle “one day”
or you have a ton of other “ideas”.
yet there is “no time”.
can you relate? Let me know below 😊.

I was exactly like this before learning how to be more productive with my time so I truly GET YOU gf!.

& all of what I stated above has nothing to do with not having enough time. It’s about learning to be more productive with the time that you have.

So here are my top productivity tips to start accomplishing all those goals you have!.

1️⃣GET CRYSTAL CLEAR ON WHAT YOU WANT TO ACCOMPLISH - you want to lose 15lbs, you want to host a wellness retreat, you want to write an e-book etc know exactly what you’re aim toward (& don’t try to do it ALL at once - set 1-2 big goals at a time).

2️⃣CREATE A PLAN of ACTION - when you will finish it by, what you will do each week, etc. set milestones and to-do lists.

3️⃣HIRE A COACH FOR ACCOUNTABILITY - this isn’t necessary but in my opinion, it’s always made the biggest difference in accomplishing my goals. I’ve had fitness coaches, I have a life/ business coach currently.

4️⃣TIME BLOCK - once you have your “to-do” list and when you WILL complete your goal by, work backward and set out time each day that you will work on it. This can mean 2-3 (1.5 hr time blocks of focused NO PHONE time. Also, set #boundaries with friends so that you aren’t getting distracted by having to text back/ hang out etc when you’re in your time blocks!.

5️⃣BE IN A POSITIVE ENVIRONMENT - Where do you work best at? be there! & be protective of your “high vibe work environment”.

Let me know below if these are helpful! Which one do you currently need to work on?.

Would love to know if you have any other tips that help you 💕.

Thankful for this girl of mine. Today she turns 7 years old and I can’t help but think (and cry) about how grateful I am for her. She is so kind, helpful and by far the funniest person I’ve ever met. I started Dressing Bree because of her and as she’s grown up with this business she is very much apart of it. She picks out many of the fabrics you see in designs, she knows her way around a fabric store with her eyes closed, she often sits in the office with me ironing fabric (with her play iron) and sewing her own creations on her child sewing machine, she packages up many of the orders I ship out and can perfectly understand every order form I take. So today I want to wish the happiest of Birthdays to my sweet Aubree, co founder of Dressing Bree 😘

Demelza, queen of the epic underbite, is searching for her second chance at a beautiful life. She recently returned to @pawsatlanta after things didn’t work out with her adoptive family. We keep an open door to all of our adopted rescues because we are keenly aware that life is sometimes unpredictable, and we all need a back up plan, just in case things don’t work out as we’d planned.
Demelza is hearing impaired, but she gets along very well around PAWS Atlanta. She is 5 and very mellow and loving. She attaches very quickly to her human friends and loves very deeply. Once you are her friend (and, honestly, everyone is a friend in Demelza’s eyes), she is fiercely loyal and will always have your back.
Demelza would love to have someone who would be home with her a good amount of time, because being separated from her human kind of breaks her heart. She has struggled a bit with separation anxiety, and departures are hard on her. So, if she could get into a good routine, where you can help her with the goodbyes with maybe a special treat to focus on, that would be really helpful. She’s pretty low maintenance in terms of exercise. A nice walk is plenty good for her. She loves people of all ages, children included, but would prefer to be an only-dog. If you’d like to learn more about Demelza, email our foster/adoption manager Laura McKelvey at [email protected]
