Guys, Yesterday das literally the best day of my year 2018❤❤ I finally met Ruggero after 3 fucking years of hope to see him one day😭 and I gave him my drawing - even though my spanish sounds so damn broken here, but you guys know that I speak Spanish anyway😅 I looked him right into his face and he smiled at me and then this picture happened and omg guys you can't believe how happy I was the hole day and still am now. I just wanted to see him since I knew about the ViolettaLive tour coming to Hamburg and I really cried like half an hour when I found out he wasn't going to attend for the second Europe tour. So this is the best ending if 3 years hope to see him somehow one day😭❤❤
When I came to the hotel Karol was already gone and Barbara, Ana and Male were already sitting in the car. The bodyguard pushed me aside so I couldn't get to take a picture with Valu, Chiara or Jorge but I saw them. Mike and Gas came out with Ruggero and omg guys I realized just today in the morning that Mike did look into my can to take a pic with me. I thought he just went back to the other side - like Gas unfortunately did… But with the concert after that and the moment with Ana and just everything it was still the best day in a really long time for me 😊❤ and I met new people like @sientorugge and finally met @divinakarol and @violetta__suchti(even though she lives like 10 minutes away from me) in person🙈
So this day was the total difference of a waste!!😭
My friend (who's on my pic with Mike too) and I are thinking about going to Oberhausen to wait at the hotel for them because we want to have a little more time with them and meet all of them and also the one we already met just again… I hope I can convince my parents, I mean that would be the best Easter present ever…(right after my Violetta Live ticket back in 2015😅)

You know who you are. Though at times you need a reminder or 10. You came into my life a little late, after everyone had found someone to call their best friend.

You found me alone in my room in a cold country away from home. You needed a room. I needed you. So began our year long journey of being roommates, best friends and family.

I'm writing this letter to tell you that I've always been in awe of you. Your ability to charm everyone and become the life of a party is something I've tried to do before and failed miserably. You were there by my side when I made a fool of myself in front of that guy. You told me, rather showed me I was better than that. I'm writing this letter to tell you that you saved me. I am older than you and I have my complexities. You are younger yet, you let me into your world of hashtags and selfies. You did not let me feel out of place in a room full of millennials.

I'm proud of what you have achieved. I may have had the marks but you made it to the top. I realised this while we sat eating cold pizza cramming for a final. When an acquaintance needed help, you ran. I stayed and studied. I'm not proud of myself.

Our timelines have never matched. You weren't there when I got married. I wasn't there to help you when you stressed over a new job. When I left, I know you hid your face so I couldn't see the tears. But guess what, I cried on the flight. I was also secretly happy that you didn't like your new roommate.

Anyway, before you tell me to shut it because I'm lecturing you with a long letter, let me tell you:

1. Don't compromise. The world can suck it. You stick by your gut feeling
2. Remain independent. You don't need a guy, marraige isn't everything.
3. Eat your veggies. Maggie isn't dinner. Or lunch.
4. Call me sometimes, you know I won't say it but I need you. I need to be found again.

We started off as accidental roommates and ended up as best friends. Thank you. I wouldn't have it any other way.

Love,
Your older boring best friend.

P.S. When I fuck up I think of what you'd do if you were in my place. I feel better because you'd have fucked it up worse than ever.

Throwback story.
My friend and I got into a discussion about the importance of instilling self love at a young age,especially when it comes to being a little black girl.My friend said she only buys her daughter black dolls and has always made it a point to compliment women with natural hair in front of her so she can see their is nothing wrong with her hair.In doing this her daughter has grown up loving her hair in every which way❤️
-
This story resonated with me because growing up the majority of my dolls were black...I had some hispanic and some white and some Japanese dolls (Mulan and Jade from the collection Bratz😄) but the general population of my dolls were black.
I will never forget going to McDonalds as a child and receiving an Alice In Wonderland doll as my happy meal toy.
-
Of course I start smiling from ear to ear and reveling in the fact she came with a comb to brush her long hair😂...my dad says to me “Let me see her Janae(my middle name)awww she is pretty.”
He then rolls down the window and throws her out...my face 👉🏽😳He then replies with “we will get you another doll.”
As a child I didn’t understand but looking back I knew my dad didn’t want me having a misinterpretation of what “beauty” is.He didn’t want me growing up thinking if my hair wasn’t blond and long it made me less than along with my family as a whole making sure I didn’t grow up having a complex.✨It’s crazy how you can remember certain moments of your childhood and this moment is clear as day to me...I remember being in my car seat and looking at my dad like he had three heads.

After almost 4 years of work (closer to 5 if you count having them for 3rd grade), the day for getting my braces off has come!!! It has been a long journey, and I'm so thankful and fortunate to have had this done!! The vlog is up on my channel if you want to see what it was like for me to get them off 😄
A quick message:
For those of you who have braces: don't get discouraged!! It's a long and tough journey, but it's one many people go through and is 10000% worth it in the end. The farther in you get, the easier it becomes, so don't give up. Show off your awesome braces while you've got them on!!!
For those of you who are going to get braces: don't be nervous!! Braces sound way worse than they actually are; they can be quite annoying and hurt a little at times, but you get used to them very quickly, and the end result (like I said before) is totally worth it!!!
Having braces isn't all about having nice looking teeth, hygiene is just as important, if not more important. If you have the opportunity to get braces, it is definitely recommended and can help you so much. I love you all, and I'm so happy the wait is finally over!!!! 😙❤❤

I don’t know if I can explain it with my words on how much I love you. Every time I talk to you I get so happy. I love talking to you a lot. I love spending every second with you. You’re my everything. We fight a lot we’ve had arguments and everything but I’m glad you’ve stuck by my side for so long. You proved me wrong I doubted we’d be together for long but here we are still together. My love for you won’t change ever. As long as you’re with me I’m sure I’m safe. You have the key to my heart. Way before 06.23.17 you knew I had a crush on you before. I don’t regret any of it. I only regret not telling you about it. But ya know meeee!!! I snatched you away because I’m better of course. I give you more loveeeeee!!!! More everything 😋 I love you a lot I hope these months were worth spending with you. I do not ever plan on letting you go. You’re rough to handle but I think I can handle you 💗 love you babesss. Also you don’t really have a choice you’re stuck with me no matter what so if I were you I wouldn’t plan on leaving like ever cause ya know you ain’t getting far. I’m your one and only that’s why. Also nobody will ever love you as much as I do. My love for you grows each day and I don’t think anybody could love you more then I do. 💞

People consider cynicism to be synonymous with emotional strength. It's like calling LeBron the best Tennis player of all time, because he's never technically lost a professional Tennis match. 
__

I've noticed that almost all of my posts begin with personal pronouns, hence the completely pointless analogy above. It doesn't have anything to do with the rest of this. Nothing really has anything to do with anything anymore. Nothing really has anything to do with anything anymore? That's exactly the kind of abstract, directionless bullshit that comes out when I start to write that makes me stop, hold down the backspace key, shut everything down, and try to think about long gone happy days so I don't end up with haunting dreams that make me either hate myself or hate waking up, every damn morning. I wish dreams had a rewind button. I wish life did. Here's to long, disjoint sentences, broken sleep patterns, and a perpetual existential dread that sets in every time I'm not working or drinking. 
__

Crippling self doubt has always been a huge part of what defines me. Every right trade is a fluke that could've just as easily gone in the opposite direction. Every fleeting feeling of love is just a crush that should be allowed some time to die out. Every good day is just setting me up for a fall. The already vague lines between real and temporary and right and wrong and drunkenness and sobriety have - without me realizing it - dissolved, and when you begin to lose friends and acquaintances with a detached indifference faster than you lose money, something doesn't quite add up. My way of life works best for me, and if believing that people who are against capitalism are just afraid that they're going to get the butt end of the bargain by ending on the wrong side of it makes me a horrible, insensitive person.. well, I never really claimed otherwise. (Contd. in comments)

Here is the original post... “I thought long and hard about sharing this on our page but after the response we got posting it on Stories I decided to share it. Loves... We almost never have trolls or haters comment on Passion Squared social pages but trust me, I have haters. And sadly, most are people I’ve known for years. But here’s the deal... this comment is not about me. It’s about the hairdresser (yes, sadly it was a hairdresser) who has so much pain in their heart that they chose to project that pain onto me through a comment watching the replay of my LIVE. Again, this is not about me. It’s about them. And I meant what I said to this person... I do hope they find the courage to heal the pain in their heart. Remember, we have a choice of how we respond to this type of shit. We always have a choice. I do my best each day to choose compassion and empathy. To remind myself how grateful I am to be empowered, courageous, happy + with a heart filled with love and what a gift it is. I remind myself each day of all the people living in pain. And we still have a choice. We can be part of the problem or part of the solution. This is what empowerment looks like. This is what strength looks like. This is what being the change looks like to me. So loves... you certainly do not ever have to respond to trolls or haters, but if you do, be mindful of the intention and energy of your words. You have a choice. And so do I. And I will do my best every day to take the high road. And always ask myself... what outcome am I seeking through this response? Think about it. Love- Nina ❤️ PS: I know I am beautiful inside + out and no comments on the internet will ever change that.” Have an awesome Friday. Remember you are loved + you matter a fuck ton. ☕️👩🏼‍🎤🤩

Yesterday I got a message from my girl Rachel👆🏽 saying, “I missed you at summit”. And I literally almost cried. Because things like this, these small gestures mean SO much to me.

ALL my life I felt like I didn’t belong. I always felt like being me was just not good enough. And I never kept friendships for long, further perpetuating the bullshit belief that there was something wrong with ME and that I simply wasn’t worthy of being liked.

When I signed up as a Coach, I did it for the extra accountability and discount (let’s be real, girl was broke AF) but I ALSO did it because I had stalked my coach at her coach summit! And although I had no idea what all that was, I saw the COMMUNITY. People striving to improve their overall wellbeing, people who cared enough about themselves to lead a healthy lifestyle, people who were HAPPY, people didn’t just focus on all the negative shit in life, people who didn’t just keep it to themselves, but invited others to be a PART of that community. I knew I had found my people.

And although being a coach & entrepreneur can be hard AF sometimes, messages like the one from my girl Rachel just reinforce that this is where I belong. That I have found MY people👯‍♀️

If you’ve ever been a lone-wolf who felt like you just never quite belonged, if you’re someone who has always known you’re different, someone who wants MORE out of life, who doesn’t want to settle for what we’re told we “should” do, who wants to be part of something BIGGER than you and truly make an even bigger IMPACT. Well then girlfriend, you should join our tribe👯‍♀️👯‍♀️👯‍♀️ 4 spots left for July’s mentorship group. Hit me up for deets. 👉🏽💌 And if reaching out is scary, I know girl, I feel you!

Basically I’ve always been into fitness and never stopped. As a child, I was in acrobatics, Tap, jazz and ballet. In my teens, I danced and joined a ymca at 17, my senior year in high school and took fitness classes 6-7 days a week. Immediately after college, I started teaching step class and then kickboxing and slowly getting certified in other formats like Pilates and yoga. I always incorporated weights and varied my routines as my interests changed or new workouts became popular (kettlebells, urban rebounding, TRX) but basically I never stopped working out and maintaining strength. When I found Instagram challenges in 2014, I was strong but hadn’t done any of these type of inversions since I was a child in acrobatics for the most part. Unless you count handstands and backbends in drunk in bars 🙈 anyway, I immersed myself in it. I loved it and I practiced everyday and when you do something everyday, you get strong and you get good at it. 🤣🤷🏻‍♀️
.
Someone a couple days ago asked me how long it took me to handstand press. I told them they could see my whole journey under #iwillpressin2014
.
I just looked at the first time I tried to press with zero understanding was February 24, 2014. I had no clue what to do so I just didn’t move and though how the F, and then just jumped up. I had zero tips and hadn’t even seen that many people press at that point. I didn’t really start continuing the work until March 20th when I pressed with my head against the closet door in my tiny apartment. A lightbulb went off as I felt the feeling of my shoulders and core engage. Then, I started really practicing. My first (Straddle) press was April 11th, 2014. .
Completely separate topic: I did not maintain flexibility through the years and that is something I paid for and have to work much harder for. 😣

essay time:
it's the dusk of 2017 and the dawn of 2018.
2017 was a pretty long year for me, but somehow it still goes by fast.
it was great learning new things, meeting new friends and also making new memories.
but also sad because of losing so much, from stuff that needs lots of time to redo and things i wish i didn't do and also for the lost of family and friends, whose soul are now resting in peace.
the greatest part was learning His faithfulness throughout it all, although i wasn't as faithful as i should have been, my excuse is that i'm still growing/learning, but in that He even send "someone" to keep me in check and because of that i learned to trust Him more and realized that, when He is in it, things will turn out better, although you can't see it yet.
so conclusion, 2017 was indeed great, in fact Awesome because yaaaa 😊😏🙄. couldn't have asked for a more better year and now it's dusk of 2017 and time to welcome the dawn of 2018.

dawn of 2018 has already begun and it's already been a long week, but i'm still trusting Him, and that's how i know it's going to be a greater year than last.
so everyone who read this, i wish you'll a great year as i believe it's going to be a year where you see His faithfulness and blessings in your life/lyfe.
.
.
p.s. i know like it's the nine-ish day of 2018 but ya, Happy New Year/Happy Year Day/Happy 2018 !!! 🎉🎉🎉 let the celebration continue!!!

Maybe something you practiced and practiced as a kid but that most people in your life now don’t know about?**

The one that comes to mind for me is piano. I took piano lessons for more than a decade (I started when I was six-years-old). I performed in tons of recitals and for a lot of different people. I memorized incredibly long and difficult pieces by composers like Beethoven, Mozart, and Chopin. I also learned “for fun” songs, like “Happy Trails,” which my grandpa requested practically every time I came over, especially when the evening was winding down. •

When I think about this time in my life, it kind of feels like a foggy memory. When I graduated high school and went off to college, I stopped taking lessons and just didn’t have the time to practice. I could have made the time, certainly, but honestly, my passions were elsewhere, and I wanted to focus on those things, like my writing, that really excite me. •

I can’t even remember the last time I sat down at a piano. It feels like the young woman who played 5+ page compositions by memory is from another lifetime. It feels like she isn’t really me. It makes me sad in a way, but I don’t have any regrets. There’s only so many hours in a lifetime, and I’m glad I’ve prioritized those things I’m truly passionate about. •

I like to always begin my sketching fully from imagination, working much quicker to explore different ideas. This thumbnail is one of many, and I will sit down some mornings even if my mind is totally blank and just essentially think on paper. If you sit down, and drop the expectation that you need to make anything that looks 'good', but instead just focus on exploring ideas, I find I can normally come across a thumbnail I feel like developing. Some days you won't, but it definitely doesn't happen if you don't sit down to try. I have found the key for me is to clear all distraction, no phone, no changing song every minute, no environment where I have to talk to anyone, and just be alone with your imagination. Even if my mind feels blank I will just literally force myself through the motions. Draw a head from a strange angle, sketch some cool light shapes I saw the other day, etc. Just getting some stuff flowing that I can play around with, sometimes you get lucky and a few different ideas will click together, a synchronicity of a whole bunch of things that have been on my mind. Might take a whole week of frustration to get something I want to develop but that's okay, no rush. I now know how long it takes me to finish anything, and who knows how long I have on this Earth haha, so I don't like to make work I'm not in love with. Good luck and happy drawing!

They say your best friend is the one you’re most compatible to be with, because you’re so much alike but so different in ways, some what a perfect fit. I thought it was a load of rubbish until I finally found the strength to open my heart up to mine and now? I’m quite possibly the happiest girl on the planet! You were my best friend for so long. You seen me at my best and sunk down to the ground at my worst. You helped me through times I didn’t think I’d ever be able to pull myself out from, you made me laugh like a hyena most days, at times you made me cry too but mostly because of how hard you had me laughing! You always knew what to say and do, like any best friend should and now I am lucky enough to not only call you my best friend, but I’m now able to call you my boyfriend, my other half. That makes me incredibly happy, you make me incredibly happy. ❤️❤️ you know the deal, swipe ⬅️ #soppypost #dontcare #sharingthelove #hesincredible #oldphotos #dontcareeither #oldiesbutgoodies #myworld #makesmehappy #eventhoughyouweird #myweirdothough #alwaysandforever #mwah @botha26

Is it even Tuesday if you don’t post a #transformationtuesday ? .
.
Five years ago I was this whole other person; shy, insecure and unhappy.. if you’re unhappy something needs to change and in my case, it was my lifestyle. 5 years later and I’m still progressing, still making wrong food choices, occasionally binging and still wanting to change a lot about my body. The difference is that now I’m stronger. I enjoy the occasional binge and understand that the ups and downs of this journey are necessary. Sometimes I’m stuck and sometimes I see so much progress, sometimes I get frustrated and sometimes I feel invincible. There’s a point to this long ass caption I swear 😅 .
.
The point is, for all those who ask how long it took me to “transform”, I don’t know. It’s been 5 years since I started but I don’t feel like I ever finished, I’m still transforming, still learning and I’m still on a journey ... not necessarily a weightloss journey anymore but more of a transformation/progress journey.
One thing I CAN tell you is that it didn’t take long for me to be happy and feel healthy. Isn’t that the whole point anyways ? .

👉warning the rest of this is long and sappy👈

From here on out I’m calling this my Dawson ring, diamonds are his birthstone and he is and since I met him has been the rainbow in my clouds. Of course he makes me crazy (this is real life) but he can talk me off a panic-attack ledge and reel me in when I’m spiraling into a meltdown. He wakes up whistling, he smiles more than anyone I know, he always makes me stop and hug him (especially when I’m stressed, but just long enough to snap me back into what really matters) he makes the best play lists for living life to and is the king of pranks that make you feel like you’re back in high school. When he asked me to marry him he spelled it with potted plants and I thought it read “Happy Me” instead of “Marry” but after all these years I think “Happy” is more accurate 😊 #iwarnedyou #sappylovepost

It’s something I always do and it pumps me up for the long drive, fills me with joy and excitement by the time I get to work I’m bouncing with happiness! I worked 11 hours and still had energy after (for someone who’s always tired this was amazing lol). So I come home and pick up my Bible I close my eyes and see where it takes me and it brought me right to this page. “We work to feed our appetites meanwhile our souls go hungry “ .. and I’m like woah .. I literally just worked this long day and than read this what does it mean .. I read it as there’s no Glory in the money , THE Glory is in God. So yes you can physically work hard and achieve goals and feel happy but spiritually the Lord 1 already has a plan for you you can not fight & 2 you can never be truly happy if you don’t acknowledge God in your life. He’s already there!! He just wants you to notice Him!! So the passage goes on to say “those who FEAR God deals responsibly with all of reality, not just a piece of it”
See God will protect you and prepare you for what He knows is next to come in your life. But if you want no part in Him ,repeatedly, he will allow you to see the world for everything it is no sugar coating exactly how you asked for it.
And the very last point that stood out to me last night was “not one who is truly pure and sinless. “ IT. IS. TRUE. so many people want to think that because of their past God will not accept them as they are, that is FALSE. He loves all of his children but He wants you to love him back !! And once you do, I promise, you’ll be hooked for life 🙌🏻🙌🏻 So this just brings me back to review the day that I had at work and how I love my job , I’m proud of what I do , but I know that no amount of work/money will ever amount to the love and Glory of God. (& the last picture is a picture from Sunday service of Apostle Erik praying over me and how crazy is it our heads are positioned the exact same way .. God did something that day !!)

And it’s such an individual answer for everyone, but here is my insight 😌
.
.

Me on the left, at around age 17: incredibly overweight. Eating huge amounts of processed food. Unhealthy. Unhappy with my body. But still a happy young woman! .
.

So what changed?
I began to notice I had constant headaches, sore eyes, my anxiety was out of control and that my general well-being felt off 😒
.
.

I came to the conclusion that I felt like I was pre-diabetic. Which for a 19 year old came as a bit of a shock. The thought of being so unhealthy that I had developed type 2 diabetes, or worse, the long term that I continued to eat myself into oblivion so much so that I was unable to live a long and happy life... I knew something had to change. .
Over a bowl full of wedges I had eaten for brunch, I made the conscious decision to make a change. And I did. The next meal was a good one and I immersed myself in learning about eating right 🌿
.
.
It certainly wasn’t smooth sailing; I fell off the wagon for a good couple of weeks about a month into my journey. But I picked myself back up, finally found a lifestyle that worked for me (still living it!) and went on to lose over 40kg in the first year. I then lost another 15kg the following year. These days I am maintaining my weight loss. I choose not to weigh myself now however as it’s all too easy to become fixated on a meaningless number. I still eat the way I do because you need to find a permanent solution if weight is your problem. You cannot expect to eat the same foods you did when you were overweight and maintain that weight loss. Food is my health insurance 🤗
.
.
And now me on the right, aged 24: the healthiest I’ve been in every sense of the word - mind and body. A healthy relationship with food. Eating whole foods with minimal processing. Aware of all aspects of my health from food to movement, to sleep and stress. In love with my body and blissfully happy 💕
.
.
So that’s a little look into what keeps me motivated: it always has been and always will be my health.

I said yes because i didn’t wanna hike all the way back in the dark after having said no ☠️😬😳 HOWEVER, i have been thankful i said yes every single day since, and fell in love with him very quickly after that night. and i used to snark when people said they fell in love quickly, but then it happened to me, and i understood. the love has changed for sure, it’s been bent and stretched and pushed and pulled; it needs to be worked for and fought for a bit more than it did in the dating days when our only priority was talking on the phone or making out in my car 😂😬 but it is so much more valuable now, with nine years of investing in eachother under our belts. happy nine years of dating, boo. #ogwayfam

I consider myself the luckiest girl in the world to have found such a kind, supportive, hard working, and handsome husband. He makes me laugh everyday, holds me when I'm broken, encourages me to push myself farther, and has blessed me with his amazing family. Thank you for everything @dvan2881 . Thank you for the big things like making so many dreams come true, always apologizing first, compromising most, and reminding me daily of just how much you love me. Thank you also for the little things, like giving me the entire bathroom vanity and shower shelves for all of my ridiculous products, being patient with me when I reorganize the house and you can't find any of your stuff, telling me not to cook with the broiler and then eating whatever I burn under it 100% of the time, and pouring my wine for me after long days - I truly don't deserve you. I love you, I'm so proud to be your wife, and cannot wait to see what year 2 brings us! •

Happy New Year everyone! It's been almost six months since my last update, and I think this will be my last post for a long, long while. I've thought about this decision for some time now, and I've decided: Life's really cropped up on me and I've been cutting back on sending mail due to lack of time and interest in general. I am, however, still incredibly grateful to everyone I've met here, and would like to put it out that if I owe you something, please do PM me and let me know so I can do a proper reply - however long that may take me, at least I'll be able to keep track. I'm sorry if this is a disappointing turn of events, but this is a decision I've come to at this point in time. So, until I restart penpalling, if you ever get mail from me in the future, please do know that you are not obligated to reply me as I won't be doing penpalling anymore.

For now, here is the last stack of received mail for the past few months. @postage.stamps and @shijifeng, I will send you something when I can. Thank you for remembering me even though I've been inactive!

So last night I had a dream about @jccaylen where I met him. And I got a picture and he hugged me and we were talking. It was the best thing ever I remember I was crying and it just made me really happy. And then I woke up from my dream and realized it all was just a dream. I thought that I had really met him and it was an amazing day like one of my biggest dream to come true. But it wasn't real and that hurt a lot when I woke up. And now I feel like I'll never meet them.

I actually almost backed out of this photoshoot all together. Like any human being, I have insecurities. Quite a few. But let’s not bring that up (even tho I just did 😅😂). Mine stem from when I was a bullied chub-a-lub of a kid. And then that evolved into me being an acne faced teen. Insults last a lifetime. And the body dysmorphia never really goes away. It just kinda remains dormant and then decides to pop up when it feels like it. So I pretty much avoided mirrors growing up. Still do at times. But then I figured “fuck it”. Why not do this photoshoot? And why not post the photo? And why not wear the #Nightwing mask while doing so? The truth is I’ll always have to battle the insecurities. This photo isn’t by any means to say “hey look at me, I work out” or “hey say nice things please.” It’s really just my way of saying who gives a fuck what people think. Just be you. It’s a long road for me to be comfortable in my own skin but I’m getting there. I been holding onto this photo all week debating whether or not to post it. But now here we are. Anyways. Happy Friday all! Remember to be confident in you. I’ll try and do the same! And thank you @thesweatshoppe @goldsgym for helping me to get my ass in shape! And while I’m here I’ll just say one last thing: I’m not saying I’m Nightwing or anything...but I also haven’t ever seen us in the same room at the same time before.

A year later & I’m finally 100% content with the healthy amount of body fat I have gained. Left was me at my leanest last summer & right is me now at my current weight. I’ve been the same weight for months & it’s crazy how much my mindset has changed.
For the past 10-12 months I’ve gone through ups and downs with my body image. The first couple of months I had more bad days than good. I kept going back & fourth between wanting to drop some body fat & just wanting to be ok with my body without changing anything. I made the decision to put my focus on truly loving myself & I’m happy to say that for the past 2-3 months I’ve finally been able to live my life without trying to change how I look. You might not notice a huge difference between these pictures but trust me there is. I’m 10+ pounds heavier with more fat, stretch marks, & cellulite. I’m ok with all that because I’m happy & I feel a lot healthier.
It feels amazing to be able to wear what I want without feeling self conscious. It’s taken a long time for me to feel this good about myself & now that I’m here I don’t plan on changing anything. That means no more bikini competitions for me. Dieting for weeks to reach a physique that I can’t maintain doesn’t sound like a good idea to me anymore. The mental fuck that comes with competing is horrible and I’m tired of repeating the same cycle year after year.
I don’t need to compete to be fit.
I don’t need to compete to inspire people.
I don’t need to compete to be a trainer.
I choose to put my mental health first ❤️

But there are also those who do not like to stay in the same place for too long, like to experience new things, are open to change, and love to jump way outside their comfort zones; and those people are like me, gypsy souls.

Not all those who wander are lost. There are some people in this world who simply do not know where they want to go in life nor know where they want to end up. They are wanderers; they have this urge to travel and explore the world. Going from one place to another to see the unknown and discover the world in a number of ways simply intrigues them and starts a fire within them. I consider these people to have a wild heart and a gypsy soul. Can't wait to see you @jrzc #consciousliving #holisticliving #pachamama #earth #yogagirl #travel #wildheart #boho #nomad

For a girl who was hit by a car and laid up in bed for months, the past two weeks have been...let’s say A LOT?! (Slide show! 👉) 💃 I taught a workshop with @alisonsbrandschool for @perfectly_posh in Baltimore
💃 Attended @mom2summit in Pasadena to mingle and hustle my book dream as well as bask in the glow of @brenebrown 💃 Gave a keynote to @dotdotsmile babes in Anaheim 💃 Had at least 3 life-changing conversations with What the Hell Nichelle 💃 Gave a completely different keynote for yummy friends at @everythingfoodconference 💃 Taught back-to-back hour-long FB/IG lives 💃 Then showed up at @segoawards where I was nominated for a fun women in business award, but then somehow with about 30 minutes notice taught dance moves—including my signature “happy clam” to a room full of Utah’s most super legit business moguls—in a dress with no Spanx. 😬😬😬
But what I want to focus on is 📸photo 1️⃣: the day I spent entirely in bed in the middle of all that. Crying into a salad (that I got delivered obvs), sobbing between bites for no other reason than DAMN THAT’S A LOT and there was more to do. 🤯 I pitched ideas to new scary (to me) people, said things that caused me to later lament “WHYYYYYYY DID I SAYYYYY THAT?!!” And have basically had to block out memories of countless other awkward feelings and moments. Not to mention have missed my kids & sexy lover. 🐒🐒
AND STILL Holy crap I am lucky. Holy crap am I grateful! Holy crap I’ve created the MOST AWESOME work for myself. But I still think the most important thing I did was that one whole day (I kid you not, an entire day) spent in bed sobbing into a salad. 🥗🥗
I’m gonna call it the ⭐️🥗SELF-CARE SALAD SOB🥗⭐️ I have no idea if this is what going after what you feel called to do looks like for others. But this is what it looks like for me. 😂❤️🙌 And if the enormity of life, your dreams, or taking care of humans makes you feel like sobbing into your cheeseburger, milkshake, steak or salad—just know I’m 1000% with you. ❤️🙌❤️

Did you know we're born to be mothers? Baby girls are created and birthed into this world with all the eggs they'll ever have? What a design!
Some of us may not be Mother's (or Mother's yet!) in the natural sense, but as women, our hearts are created to love and nurture - the heart of a mother.
7ish years into my own mothering journey, I'm only just personally beginning to unlock and discover the scratch on the surface of what this means and looks like for me.
It's a journey. A long one that feels so short. A journey with many seasons of feeling joy and feeling sadness. Often both in the same day.
Motherhood challenges me to be the absolute best version of myself.
Motherhood pokes me where it hurts, and brings me to my knees every time I thought I was getting it right.
Motherhood opened and unlocked areas of my heart that I never knew existed.
I am truely and utterly greatful for this insanely crazy ride!
William - Jan 2011 + Poppy - Jan 2014 you've made me a mother. Created a purpose for my life. Given me a future with joy. Opened my eyes to new ventures. Made my hearts desire come true!
Happy Mother's Day to all the mums and mums to be! Wether It's your 1st or 31st Mother's Day - you're amazing! 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕

It took even longer for me to learn how to style it the way I like it ( gel = life ❤) but now that I've got it down giiirl I'm #feelingmyself 😉
Love the texture you've got babes, at the end of the day it it what makes you you! It's part of your own unique beauty ❤. Let me know if you want me to share my styling routine , I'll be happy to ! 😘😘😘

🇫🇷 Je suis naturelle depuis des années mais je commence tout juste à porter mes cheveux en mode wash n go au quotidien and lovin it !! 😜
J'ai mis super longtemps â arrêter de me comparer aux autres et à apprécier ma propre texture.
J'ai mis encore plus longtemps à apprendre à les coiffer comme je le voulais (le gel c'est la vie ❤) mais depuis giiirl im #living
Apprenez à aimer votre propre texture les filles, au final ça fait partie de vous , ca fait votre beauté et ça vous rend unique ❤❤

Dites moi en commentaires si vous voulez que je partage ma routine, ça serait avec plaisir!! 😘😘😘😘.

Most people don’t know that she SAVED me from DEPRESSION! She was the only person that recognized that there was a problem.... She came and got me out that closet and kept coming back until we figured out! She loved me through all my pain and tears! She is the one that will Scream “Bit❤️❤️ get your ish together! She is a Amazing Soul! I don’t know her like most people because our bond and friendship is just DIFFERENT! She has trusted me with her most Prized procession and that’s @itshonor!!! He is the son I never birthed!
There was a time when I questioned her on why I wasn’t at the dinners, events, parties with her?!? We aren’t friends?!? I quickly realized that my position in her life is to love and protect Honor while she shares her gifts and that’s priceless to me!
Thank You for Trusting me with Honor! Thank You for allowing him to become FAMILY to my Family! I’m so Blessed and Honored to call you Friend! Happy Birthday and may God Bless you with many more and another Baby for me☺️

I’m in Hamburg today and so excited because I’m doing work that I love with people who inspire me so much and push me creatively, and challenge me a lot, and it’s wonderful to have so much good energy and to achieve flow in the right direction. 💥⚡️⭐️Tomorrow, I have a client flying in from Copenhagen for a day long workshop with me, and I can’t wait because I really love these chances I have to be a resource to others but also to exchange good ideas and have some more power to fuel me further💥. This week is rather crazy and hectic, next week too, and honestly... it will be a little nutty schedule-wise for me all summer... But the projects I’m on will be revealed later this year and when I can lay everything out before you, I know that you will be inspired and happy to see what I’ve been preparing for you with the help of so many good people on my side, most stronger and more talented than I am, so good things await! 🎉I hope you are all doing okay, I often feel lost on social media, like no one cares or listens anymore unless I am in a 👙bikini, showing a flat lay with avocado 🥑 toast, or constantly instagram-Storying every f-ing moment of my life but you guys, that’s just not me and never will be. I’m a mom first, friend second and business workaholic boss lady next... It must stay in that order. I go dancing and party quite a lot, I have a big network of friends whom I love and I, or course, have a 4-year-old little boy who has the energy, personality and curiosity of 5 kids, so I do as much as I possibly can without losing my mind. But I need my boy and my friends to come first, and then I can work better and stronger and happier... in less time. I used to put my work in first place and everything suffered. I learned from my Italian friends and others I know who embrace life that you have to prioritize because none of us where made just to pay bills and die. Hope you are all doing well, comment sometime, I’d like to hear from you! // I took this photo a few weeks ago at @salvatori_official in #milan, the table is marble and simply TD4! #ohwowyes #salvatoristone #kitchen #interiordesign #milandesignweek #milano #brera #milandesignweek2018 #breradesigndistrict

Happy Good Friday poppets! In fact do you even wish a 'happy' good friday or is it more like 'HAPPY LONG WEEKEND KIDS!' It's early afternoon and a car is coming in a couple of hours to take us back to the airport for our flight back to KL and then on to London 😭😭 it's literally been the dreamiest couple of weeks and everything I could have wished for.
That said though, the last time we took two weeks out was 7 years ago. We didn't have the house or the fluffs or my blog or any of that and dare I say it, I'm looking forward to having most of Easter weekend to unwind at home before getting back to work next week and regaining my focus. I've even been organised and done an Ocado food shop so it's delivered tomorrow...how long this new me will last is anyone's guess 🤷🏼‍♀️ enjoy your Fridays and I'll see you back in London. First stop: COLLECT BOO ❤️❤️❤️ .

We almost never have trolls or haters comment on Passion Squared social pages but trust me, I have haters. And sadly, most are people I’ve known for years. But here’s the deal... this comment is not about me. It’s about the hairdresser (yes, sadly it was a hairdresser) who has so much pain in their heart that they chose to project that pain onto me through a comment watching the replay of my LIVE. Again, this is not about me. It’s about them. And I meant what I said to this person... I do hope they find the courage to heal the pain in their heart. Remember, we have a choice of how we respond to this type of shit. We always have a choice. I do my best each day to choose compassion and empathy. To remind myself how grateful I am to be empowered, courageous, happy + with a heart filled with love and what a gift it is. I remind myself each day of all the people living in pain. And we still have a choice. We can be part of the problem or part of the solution. This is what empowerment looks like. This is what strength looks like. This is what being the change looks like to me. So loves... you certainly do not ever have to respond to trolls or haters, but if you do, be mindful of the intention and energy of your words. You have a choice. And so do I. And I will do my best every day to take the high road. And always ask myself... what outcome am I seeking through this response? Think about it. Love- Nina ❤️ PS: I know I am beautiful inside + out and no comments on the internet will ever change that.

Hi there! I'm Kurt, a 4-year-old toy poodle mix just looking for love. A young college student found me rummaging through a dumpster behind a gas station. He didn't think I'd make it long and scooped me up while calling a former teacher that he knew dealt with needy dogs such as myself. Soon, I was cleaned up and fed well, waiting for a home to call my own. The streets were hard on me at a young age, I've lost most of my teeth and have some slight blindness in one of my eyes, but that doesn't really slow me down any! I'm dog, cat, kid, adult and any creature friendly as long as there is enough hugs and pets and cuddles for me too! I like to go outside for walks and for rides in the car. I'm a happy boy, eager to please and to learn new things. I can't wait to meet all my new Streetdog Friends!

I’ve been busy finishing things that have been littering my bench for months as well as getting through the rest of my preordered rings. All preordered rings will ship on or before May 1 and I will be closing my website for the first half of May for a planned personal break. At the moment, I’m not accepting any more preordered things - a select few things will be added back to my website at the end of May. I will be having another small website restock with one of a kind things in the next few days - as an exception to my regular no res rules, if you see something you might like before my restock, I would be happy to reserve it for you if you email me to request it. No DMs please - I can’t keep track of them....
Curious to know why things take a long time for me to make them? 😅Other than the fact that I’m a mom of two and I don’t have anyone to help out (it’s just my husband and I - no family anywhere close and we don’t have a babysitter or housekeeper - and my dishwasher has been broken for a month 😭), I create each of my pieces entirely by hand starting with sheet metal, a saw and a hammer. Each mark represents 1 - 5 hammer blows with a 3lb mallet. I use as heavy weight metal I can wield, piece appropriate - this one is a 14g band with 3 additional layers of 20g sheet to create the depth in the image. Forming heavy weights is time consuming and physically challenging. My poor thumbs have taken quite a beating this week with hammer misses. Anyway - I always under gauge the time it takes to make things and as a result, I’m always running behind - or feeling like I am. I know I sound like a broken record in this department, but outstanding orders eat at the edges of my mind all the time and I feel like I owe all waiting daily explanations, but the time it takes to email would only make things later. #catch22 😂You guys are all always wonderful to me - this isn’t in response to anything that happened at all. 🖤 If you’re wondering about this bracelet, it’s about half way completed. It will be finished off with a faceted rectangular garnet and oxidized. It will fit up to a 7.5” wrist.

Mum and dad came to pick me up from school when I was 7 years old with a brand new pair of trainers for me.
I remember getting in the car and driving what felt like forever to this place full of puppies!
Although mum and dad had a dog in mind, we couldn’t take our focus off of the most energetic, fun little pup jumping up and down and crawling over everyone else’s backs to get to the front.
I remember us driving off to go get the money to take him home and mum and dad asking me what I wanted to call him. “Happy”
“Smiley”
None of which mum and dad agreed to “Scruff ?!” And that’s what we chose !
We went back and easily spotted him running around but after our unexpected purchase we had nothing to take him home in, so we got my new little size 13 shoes out the box and it was the perfect size basket for my new best friend.
Today I lost my best friend after 18 years together.
I hope he knows how much he was truly loved, I’d like to think that was the key to his long and happy life. “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.”

It’s hard to believe this was three weeks ago today. I’ve been having a really hard time accepting what happened and how things didn’t go to plan. I am extremely happy that I have a healthy baby, but a lot of things could have made the situation better. I hate that I didn’t get to see my son the first couple of minutes of his life. I hate that they wrapped him up and handed him to Kyle, and that I could barely see his face because of how they strapped me down to the table. I hate that in our first hour of getting to bond, I don’t remember anything because I was in so much pain. I hate that I had to look up the person who delivered my son because I had no idea what he looked like because I met him for one minute prior to surgery. I hate that because I was so drugged up and in pain, I feel like I was so disinterested in him the week we were in the hospital. I’m happy that things are slowly getting better, but I hate that so much of what was supposed to be happy memories were replaced with fear and sadness. It’s going to take a long time for me to learn to cope with this, and I think being transparent about it and talking about it is going to help.

Some of you know how much stage fright I experience when performing live and it’s been a long journey for me to overcome this fear of playing in public. But I finally feel like I’m getting somewhere!
_
Yesterday, I felt different. I felt confident about the story I wanted to share and that was my mission. Normally, I would get caught up on my mistakes but I know I’m not perfect and I accepted that. I knew I was going to be nervous. I knew my hands were going to be shaking. So instead of worrying about whether I would make a mistake, if I would get nervous, or if my hands would shake, I told myself that it‘s not a matter of “if” but more like “how” I’m going to deal with that.

Sure, it would be great to have a flawless performance, but perfection doesn’t exist and I need to accept my imperfections. It’s ok to make a mistake or buzz a note as long as I could tell the story that I believed in.
_
Having this mindset changed the game for me. Compared to a year ago, I feel like a totally different player. I even felt like playing last night was a piece of cake and I’m excited to play another one! The take away from all this is that it keeps getting better the more you do it! Come to think of it, I’ve only played 9 solo concerts in my whole entire life, which is not that much! So... I guess it’s time to schedule another concert!
_
Thanks for all your support and sending good vibes! I’m happy to share my struggles and journey with all of you! I haven’t had any time to relax and read your messages but I’m gonna be doing lots of that tonight 😊

You're a mom, a sister, a senapapi, and a senpai. All at once! You're the cutest little bean and I know you're probably recovering and not going to see this anytime soon. I just wanted to say, two years man? Has it been that long? Like it feels like forever. You're probably my other half, I've wanted an older sister. I know you're struggling with shitty things going on, and honestly I know everyone has that breaking shitty point. I hate seeing my mom sad and all gloomy and such. I know I can't talk to you since you want some alone time, or you're distracting yourself with certain things to make you happy. Just know I'm always here for you, I'm a shoulder to cry on mom. I'm your daughter and let me be your daughter for once and let me help. You're a cute bean and I really want to meet mom this summer ;-; really bad... But that can wait, you need to be happy first! I will not stop at nothing to make my mom happy!! She is a weirdo potato, but she's a cute one. So if anyone says otherwise, fuck off! You're my other half, we like certain things that we both fangirl over, and you try to get me into things that you like. I am much appreciated about that. So Faith, mommy dear. Please stay strong! I want a mom hug <_< yesh I want a hug ok? >< I love you mom! You clumsy potato.

If you’ve followed me for a while you’d know that I just got involved in a permanent sleepover, lol. I think 👈🏾 that is funny! But lest, someone think that I’ve been speaking from a mountain top for forever and day, be ye not fooled!
I flew solo for a long time on a LOT of things - watching others do things that I know I’m capable of. I’m talking more than relationship status friends, I mean business, career opportunities or advancement, and other ventures. There were a few ways I could choose to respond - with envy, saltiness, and/or hate but what I truly had come to believe was that my hope and faith meant my turn is ALWAYS coming..... some things took extremely long like this husband-flex. Some things are still on the slow road.... but I’ve learned to celebrate when others celebrate from a genuine place. It takes nothing away from me to be happy for others. My thoughts were, if it can happen for them, “it” can happen for me. What’s for me IS for me! Today, tomorrow, or years from now. So I’ll celebrate, I’ll always celebrate. No season lasts forever so be content to wait well. Your turn is always coming! #waitwell

I’ve been horizontal all wknd trying to rest this back injury. Being completely reliant on other people has really put things in perspective for me. We take so many basic things, like walking, for granted. Im such an active independent person. Always busy, working out, doing yoga, cooking, running around after my daughter. Having to be still for so long has made me realize how lucky I am to be able to do all those things. I’m so grateful for the people who are looking after & supporting me. Wishing you all a great Sunday & week ahead. Now go have a mimosa for me 😊🙏🏼💕

This past weekend we laid to rest a friend/brother of mine @marty4theparty his spirit & energy has been with me all week. I didn’t initially post as God was dealing with me and my thoughts. I just couldn’t understand why such a beautiful soul had to leave us so soon. I had just seen him a week before his passing and hugged him so tight and long unbeknownst to me it would be my last time having the opportunity. Martez was dealing with some things as life happened that I was unaware of but had taken to Facebook to express just a few months back ( swipe to see in his own words) but what’s interesting is when I saw him I couldn’t tell anything was going on as he was just as vibrant, loving, and seemingly happy as I remembered him. As I dug deeper though I realized he was doing what some of us “popular and life of the party people do” masking his pain so others could still be ok with his usual cheerful presence. After the news I prayed for his spirit, family, & friends whom he impacted, but after attending the service it all made sense. God used Martez’s life to be a testimony and a savior in a way for many of us who are still here. You see it takes a lot sometimes to be there for everyone else, to lead and inspire, and still deal with your own issues as it’s so easy forget about your own well being. I learned so much about Marty at his homegoing service through all the outpouring of love and tributes. He was a legit local celebrity. His God-given talents and personality gave him a platform to touch so many people including me. I met Martez when I had just graduated from college & though we didn’t see each other all the time he was like family every time we linked up it was as if time never escaped us. May your light continue to shine bright in the hearts of those you affected. And for all of us here still fighting the good fight, I pray you be moved to reach out and touch somebody’s hand. Go the extra mile to be there for your people. Instead of talking about their issues as we all have them, try harder to actually be there for them & dig a little deeper as they may be in need.Thanking God 4 brother

Fireworks early today 💥🎆🔊
.

As promised turning 325 parts today made possible with this @arc_zone model A-PT-051-Pro Positioner. In this clip I'm tacking and welding 10 parts. This positioner is Soooo smooth and quiet, literally perfect for weldment's like this. So far zero issues or complaints with this machine! My day will carry on much faster having this tool in my shop hands down. It's no secret a machine like this will help any shop speed up production. For me it's the service that follows a purchase like this. Jim @thejoewelder, Joanie @joaniebutler and the team over @arc_zone deliver long after the sale. Take my word. This table is affordable and practical cutting my production time almost in half. (If I turned them by hand) I have also cut and fit some chip board to protect the machine from spatter, keeping this tool fresh for years to come. I will post another clip up close of this model in action and the parts turned later today. Notice the minute hand on my clock🙃

Ask all the questions you'd like
Happy independence day ya'll! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
Bravo @arc_zone 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

Just received the news I've been scared to hear for the last few years. My wee best pal Lucky has sadly passed away. For the last month or so he's been really sick and after a few visits to the vet, his condition never got better. The last few days have been horrible and hearing him suffer was breaking my heart. The vet advised the best thing to do was to put him down. He isn't suffering anymore and is now in doggy heaven. I've had him since 2004 and he's lived a long and happy life. This is possibly the worst day of my life. It hasn't really sunk in yet but I can't stop crying. He helped my through my depression, he made me happy when I felt like shit. He's always been there for me when others haven't and I'll never ever forget him. I love you forever Lucky. Rest in peace ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

(Go to school, Get good grades, Come out, Find a good job, and work for someone else for the rest of your life.) Fortunately for me this plan didn’t last too long 😂😂😭 I was never really a “straight A” student, but it doesn’t take a perfect gpa to understand and realize that what use to work 5-10+ years ago isn’t working today. I’ve watched friends, family, and complete strangers do everything they were told to do and still come out struggling in the game called life. And if it weren’t for a decision to do something different back then I honestly have no idea what the hell life would look like for me today. 😳

But here’s what I can say... Because of my choice to make a decision for change, and my ability to block out all of the naysayers, and MLM haters/non believers 4 years later I have went from being a kid with a fear of public speaking to speaking in front of hundreds of people, I have traveled more in 4 years then most do in a lifetime, I have met some amazing people, connected with 7-8 figure mentors, have had a shit ton of fun and lastly I have been given the opportunity and ability to impacted more lives here then I ever would have with any other career choice.

My point is this. Live the the life that you want for yourself and make the choices that you think are right for you. Don’t live in fear of the opinions of friends and family, and stop trying to make everyone around you happy. Noone has ever done anything worth doing by “just going with the flow,” and if there’s one thing that I’ve learned is that most of the people in your life won’t support you until strangers begin to celebrate you💯💯🙏🏼 It’s 2018 people!
Let’s start to Live like it 😎🤘🏽

Cried a lot of tears in here. Wanting so much for myself. Sacrificed a lot of things and people I loved just to love myself. Wanted to love myself so much, I let go of everything I had and built just to give myself a fresh start. Once you find self love , no matter how far you go, you can never lose yourself again. Yourself always pops back up like remember me, remember when you loved me and stayed true to me and how happy and good it made you feel to do that. No matter how many people or things I lose , means nothing, because there was a long time ago, i had nothing and I was it. I’m enough, with all my imperfections. I’m proud of how far I’ve come and the mistakes I’ve made because they’ve only made me love myself more. I love me because I keep it real with me. Y’all can keep the fake shit. #SELFLOVE Name 3 reasons why you love your self. 💕😘

I want to thank everyone who purchased or attempted to purchase a bag from either Etsy or our website. We truly appreciate it and have been humbled by the support y’all have shown my mother and myself. We have been so overwhelmed with these purses and with finding help to meet the demand. Sadly, today should of been a day to celebrate and be excited to supply more bags, but we had so many rude and upsetting comments that it got to me and that is truly not ok. We are people, who are trying to satisfy our customers that we care about. But, we can only do so much and unfortunately there are people who are constantly disappointed and feel we are doing this on purpose to mess with you. NO we are truly overwhelmed with the responsibility and the lack of help is stressful. We need your patience. We finally launched our designed bag, but we had to release them in batches to make sure we ship them in time. We will continue selling these bags, but until we can find our rhythm, they will be in batches to cut down on shipping time. Please be patient and don’t leave nasty rude comments, please remember “if you can’t say anything nice don’t say anything at all” You wouldn’t like for me to treat you like that so please be mindful of how you treat us. So long story short, I am so happy to
be able to get the continued support from the ones who understand who we are and appreciate what we do. I truly love all of you! And the ones who hate me and the way I do things, I hope you change your mind and are patient with us. ✌🏽-Kenny

I get so many questions about gallery wall and answer is - I don’t know if I will have it or no! Now I have hanged up one poster that I really love and it’s good for now - if it will feel like more - there will be more, but if not...I don’t feel like forcing me to make things that doesn’t feel right at the moment. At old apartment it was natural - that gallery wall just grew and I have all those posters, but I don’t feel like hanging them up same way here. This is our new home, new beginning - place where we plan to live long term, so I have plenty of time and one priority - everything have to feel natural and good.
Now there is different priority - sofa, cause we have white dog who often sleeps there and seeing it dirty doesn’t make me very happy...time will show!

Recreate, and repeat.” ~Warsan Shire .
.
I feel as though my life has been a hell hole for as long as I can remember, I’ve been doing everything I can to crawl out of the hole I thought I was doomed to.
But towards the end of 2018, things started changing. I made the decision that the only person I was going to spoil this time around, was myself. That I’m not going to wallow in self pity because I’m single, broke, and clueless when it comes to what I’m even doing in life.
I made the decision to set goals for myself and reach those goals within the next 6 months, I made the decision to better my life and become a classy, independent, smart, and sassy lil woman that anybody could look up to.
And I’m doing just that.
I came into the most wonderful company and am so excited to see where they take me, I’m moving into an apartment with my best friend in a few weeks, and all the other goals I have set this year are coming into view and are waiting for me to grasp them.
I’m so grateful that I held on even though I wanted to let go. It’s been a crazy fight and I’m sure there’s more coming, but I have finally reached a point where I KNOW that 2019 is going to be my year.
This must be what bliss feels like.

On October 17th, 1989 the Loma Prieta earthquake shook the foundations of my home, our town and the greater Bay Area and everything I took for granted as solid, secure and safe was shook along with it. The following day, a direct result of the tremors the night before, my brother was born. An abstract lump on my mother’s body, located somewhere between her pelvis and my sense of absolute and confident solitude, broke open a kicking screaming mess. His features round and Russian; mine square and Arab. My nose in books; his eyes on the ball. My disposition turned inwards with a shy introspection; he with a boisterous laugh, dimpled smile and genuine conviviality. Like that earthquake, he shook apart my shell and tore down everything I once thought safe and secure. If not for that, I would have been lost long ago.
Happy birthday @mkardosh . Thank you for continuing to force me to shake off the old and embrace the new.

Do you feel fit + confident in yourself and your body? I spent SO many years (swipe to see my before pictures) unhealthy and hating myself and my body. I started gaining weight as a kid in elementary school and it didn’t stop till I was in my senior year of high school and over 200 pounds. I spent so many years depressed, hating myself, and unhealthy. That was until I decided I had the POWER to make a change! Something finally clicked and I decided I would start to get healthy, I couldn’t live like that anymore. It took a long time to get from that first before picture to where I am now, but I wouldn’t trade my journey for the world. It didn’t happen overnight, it took me about a year and a half to lose the first around 80 pounds and to get to a healthy and happy place. From there I continued to figure out what healthy meant and looked like to ME and eventually it led to me becoming a NASM personal trainer, women’s fitness specialist, and Percision Nutrition level one coach. Now I help other women both in the gym and online change their own lives and get in shape. If you are ready to do the same, let me help!

It’s a source of comfort and ease at times, and at others it’s a source of aversion and frustration for me- that is the truth of what breastfeeding and weaning has been like for me... it’s like the seasons- they are new and exciting at first, you are never fully prepared and must adjust and readjust- there is a bit troubleshooting to get things just right: wardrobe, foods, appropriate water intake, etc etc- and then you’re smoothly sailing and you breeze on through until at last you reach the crux of the season and you’ve had enough but the nature of seasons is that they go away on their time... the back and the forth of not wanting to miss those last summer days or the beauty of the last snow, not wishing to squander it away, but deep down being ever so done... then once it’s over and you forget about all of the discomforts and irritations, you begin to long for the good parts- the coziness of your sweaters or your bronzy sun kissed skin, forgetting about the dryness of the cold and the sting of the frigid air on your sinuses, or the gross humidity and mosquitos. I guess that could be applied to most things that we live through, there will always be that beautiful filter that we are gifted in being able to look back, you know, once we’ve processed the hard parts... To date, I’ve breastfed a total of 7 years, 4 months, between my three children- this is not something I share to win any contests, just a matter of fact. It has not been easy, and I do look forward to missing it one day... but for now I’m just enjoying the times that feel like the breezy spring and fall times when they happen... I love to witness here on @Instagram the mothers who are beginning their journeys and the mothers who have over the years offered to me their sage support, recounting their hindsight- all stages are valid and beautiful, and it’s so important that we are able to have empathy for where we each are on our parenting journeys (however we feed/nurture) and meet each other in that place. Happy International Breastfeeding week to all you mammer-jammers out there ;).

I've never talked about my pregnancy or childbirth publicly before, but I was ready to share my experience for THIS effort. Things I shared:

How I didn't like being pregnant, even though I had an easy pregnancy. How my birth process was nothing like I had planned, which left me feeling "less than" as a mom. The tremendous guilt I experienced for not giving my baby the best natural experience he could have. How isolated I felt, because I had all of these negative thoughts around his birth and I was supposed to be so happy. How I judged myself for feeling anything less than ecstatic, because I had a healthy baby and not everyone can say that. What post-partum depression really felt like, and how long it took me to realize yeah, I had it. How lonely I felt through it all.

I shared all of the things that I wished I had heard someone say more than five years ago, because the whole reason we created the Whole Mamas community and programs was to help moms feel less alone, less crazy, less guilty or ashamed, less "less than." And if I spent more than a year feeling all of these feelings, as well-connected and educated and privileged as I was, there's a good chance just about every other mother out there feels some of this too.

And I don't want any of you to go through this feeling as alone as I did.

I hope it ministers to your heart ❤️ This is my friend and Emotional Intelligence Coach, Dr. Shakila Angadi from @theinspireddentist 💪 Link in the bio! We dive into anxiety and four practical ways so you can take ACTION to find what makes you happy and getting started again in your home and life. This past year has marked a long battle for me with clinical anxiety and PTSD, so I know what it's like being in a place of overwhelm. I lost my brother to a battle with mental health issues, and for me, sharing strategies to help myself and others will be a life-long mission. And that's why everything is a free printable on my blog. I love you guys. One of the most amazing things about working with empowering women like Shakila is that even behind the scenes during this collab, we called out parts of one another that we could build up. The second photo is one she candidly took of me working (I don’t have any pictures like this) and to have someone so beautifully embrace my strengths and imperfections was incredible. Stepping back not to judge but to listen, learn and build. Shakila has an incredible story that inspires me— be sure you follow her!

Who else is looking back at 2017 like this on the most depressing Monday of the year?
Let me tell you why I am.
This is a photo from about a year ago when I first moved back to the Netherlands after more than 4 years of being away. All though this year was a total rollercoaster I am grateful for it. It was a year in which I had to find inner balance again between my emotions, drive, logical reasoning and stability. Being away for so long changes a lot. Not just your surrounding but everything. All though it's all small pebbles on the road ahead, a lot of small pebbles can still make you fall.... so I did. But you know what, I'm happy I did. These are the moments we learn, see, understand and most of all grow as a person. That is why now as I look back im happy that I got offered the chances to grow. Through pain, confussion and a troubled mind their comes only one thing if your really work to it, eternal growth! Namaste beautiful people and make 2018 a year of growth❤. #happy #me #instabeard #instagood #motivation #model #beard #ink #fitness #healthy #smile #love #happy #instadaily #bearded #beardlover #follow #growth #spiritual #drive #ready

Basically I don’t think it’s right to ban a “life giver” entry to a temple where you are praying (i.e if you’re not worried about morally slipping) for a long and happy life. If she weren’t there, then you wouldn’t be here, savvy??? #noreligion #religionfree #purityisinthesoul #equality #freedom #freeyourmind #womenempowerment #mensupportingwomen #equality #sexismsucks #supremecourtofindia #peace

So I took a break from my phone for the most part while we were in Paris, so I’m just now really catching up on here & getting to share about the trip. I still can’t believe I made it to Paris & tried my best to not have any expectations because I have learned that can tend to ruin trips in general. But this trip to Paris by far exceeded any expectation I did have & was one of the best trips Sinclair and I have taken together.
The universe gave us sunny weather for the first 3 days we were there, so we got to soak up the blue skies and golden hues cascading on the buildings. It was truly breathtaking. We kept warm in our cozy layers & plenty of cappuccinos at the cafes. We walked all over the city & it felt like all the movies I grew up watching that took place in Paris. We cozied up on the bridge & watched the lights sparkle on the Eiffel Tower at night & shared a long kiss & happy smiles. We people watched, chatted with the locals, took in the art, architecture, fashion and all the other wonderful things this city has to offer ✨
It’s not often a trip goes the way you imagine it would, but I think the trick this time was to not expect anything & to just let whatever happens- happens! I love learning how to travel better.
This was the best birthday gift ever ❤️🇫🇷❤️ thank you @igobysinclair 💋 you make me the happiest woman in the whole world! (My bday isn’t until the 26th, but we celebrated early 😉) #louvre #thankful #paris #france

I saw a guy walk up behind Rachell. She turned around and her eyes went wide. Me: "Who is that guy?" Luke: "Don't know. Is this part of the prank?" Me: "What even is Hayden's prank?" Luke: "Text him." I took out my phone and sent Hayden a message. Me- "Hayden, what's ur prank?" Hayden- "What prank?" Me- "Didn't u send Rachell a message telling her to meet u @ the park?" Hayden- "No" Me- "Was it Leticia???" Hayden- "No" I looked up in the direction towards Rachell. She and the guy was gone. Me: "Where did they go?" Luke: "They walked over to the bench." He pointed towards a bench and Rachell was smiling. She seems really happy. Me: "Did you see his face?" Luke: "No." Rachell's POV
Me: "It was you who was Jason at the haunted house?!" He nodded. Me: "I'm really sorry for jumping on you." He laughed. Person: "It's okay, you were saving Jordyn." Me: "So how's it been? It's been a really long time." Person: "Got surgery on my leg, I've been recovering from that. It's stabile now, it took a really long recovery. I got a job at that Hayride thing for the month of October." Me: "What was that bang, when you came out from the corner?" Person: "I hit my axe against the wall. I didn't even realize it was you and Jordyn, until I cornered you two in the maze, cause that's when you started talking. And I'm like, I know those voices." He chuckled. Me: "Yeah, most of the time we were screaming. I'm surprised you're not deaf." I chuckled. Person: "Yeah same here." He chuckled. Person: "I saw you punch that clown head."

I took a deep breath. Me: "Why did you use a block number?" Person: "Wanted it to be a surprise, I guess." Me: "You wanted to see my reaction?" Person: "Yeah, nice 'surprise face' by the way." I laughed. Me: "Thanks and I'm really happy that you are okay." Person: "Thanks, same here."

Buongiorno!!! Mai collaborazione fu più azzeccata per una piccola Cenerentola come me 😜 se quando si va fuori la scarpetta di cristallo non manca, in casa mocio, scopa a vapore e detergenti sono sempre di turno. Sapete bene quanto ami avere un ambiente pulito (anche se pulito ci rimane ben poco visto che qualcuno a caso butta sempre tutto in giro). Ho avuto la possibilità di provare questi prodotti di cui ovviamente avevo già avuto tanti feedback positivi! Che dire? In due giorni ho avuto la possibilità di usarli tutti tranne il panno vetri, e sono una bomba! I prodotti sono concentrati quindi ne va usato molto poco e ciò assicura che durino a lungo! Per provare al meglio il detergente lavatrice lo ho usato senza ammorbidente ed il risultato è stato un bucato fresco e morbido! Come sapete ho testato Agile per pavimenti anche con la scopa a vapore, basta mettere 10 ml di prodotto sul panno sotto la scopa (no nel serbatoio!!) E procedere al lavaggio, se avete pavimenti sporchi però il panno della loro linea è super e toglie qualsiasi cosa senza lasciare fastidiosi aloni! Sfrigo è una bomba e vi dirò di più, l'ho usato anche nel lavandino e aiuta a togliere i cattivi odori che arrivano dallo scarico!!come tocco finale poi una spruzzata di folata e via andare! Grazie @lineapiupulito amiamo tutto quanto!

Good morning!!!
This is the perfect collaboration for a small Cinderella like me 😜 if when you go out the crystal slipper is not missing, in the house mop, steam mop and detergents are always on duty. You know how much I do love to have a clean environment (even if clean there is very little because someone randomly always throws everything around).I had the opportunity to try these products about of course I had already had so many positive feedback! What to say? They are a bomb! The products are concentrated so it should be used very little and this ensures that they last a long time! Happy Sunday to you all

- Elder, what is Hell like? - Let me tell you a story that I've heard:

Once there was a simple man who kept asking God to show him what Paradise and Hell are like.

So, one night, in his sleep, he heard a voice saying: “Come, let me show you what Hell looks like.” He suddenly found himself in a room, where many people were seated around a table. In the middle of that table was a pot filled with food. But all those people were hungry, because they were unable to eat. They each held a very long spoon in their hand. They were able to take food out of the pot, but couldn't bring the spoon to their mouth. Because of this, some were complaining, others were shouting, others were weeping.

Then he heard the same voice saying to him: “Come now, and let me show you what Paradise also looks like.” He again found himself suddenly in another room, where many people were seated around a table, just like the one before, and in the middle of that table was -again- a pot full of food. Those people also held the same kind of long spoon in their hand. But every one of these people was full and happy, because each would dip his spoon in the pot and feed the person near him.

Do you understand now, how you too can feel that you're living in Paradise, from this lifetime?

Whoever does a good deed feels gladness, because he is rewarded with a divine consolation.
Whoever does bad things suffers, and he makes the terrestrial Paradise a terrestrial Hell.

Do you have love, kindness inside you? Then you are an angel, and everywhere you go or stand, you will be carrying Paradise with you.

Do you have passions, meanness? Then you have the devil inside you, and everywhere you go or stand, you carry Hell along with you.

We begin to live Paradise or Hell from this life, here...

This guy right here has been by my side for the past almost 2 years, through working 68 hour weeks, through long nights of me procrastinating instead of doing my homework and then complaining for hours on end.
He makes me feel happy like I've never felt before and angry like I could rip his head off sometimes, but then don't because I know I would miss him too much!
He's survived dating me for 1 year and 8 months, survived living with me for 1 year and 1 month, and still manages to call me beautiful everyday, write me cute notes on the whiteboard, and take care of me like no one else.
I love you so much Brycen and can't wait to see what the future holds for us, as long as you're in my future I know it'll be perfect 😘😘

I had a small intestine transplant almost 8 mths ago. After that, at least 3/4 of my hair fell out (from 8 hrs of anesthesia). I’m grateful tho, because I had to start wearing hats & bandanas & I don’t think I’ve ever gotten more compliments! 😂 If you want to feel really stylish, wear a bandana every where you go! 😂 You’ll feel like a rockstar! I used to feel like I had to explain WHY I’m wearing one - even to strangers - like, trust me I’m really not this cool! I HAVE to wear this. But there have been so many compliments, I’ve finally just started saying thank you & smiling. (Thank you, Lord, for using yet another thing in my life for my good & Your glory.) Hair loss. Who would have thought?! We’ve seen God carry us thru harder things than we could have imagined. We’re beyond grateful for every big & little blessing. I can’t stop smiling. I hug complete strangers, like the sales clerk at the store last night, just because. 😜 My brain is in creative overdrive ALL the time & I want to do all. the. creative. things! Bart & I have both cried happy tears this weekend because last year, we were in the hardest season of our lives with no end in sight & yet look where we are now! Last year, I didn’t eat food for five months! I was solely on IV nutrition & a bit of broth. Last night? I ate steak for dinner! 🙌🏻 Rejoicing & eating all the delicious things because this year I can - praise God! Bartley says it’s so amazing to see everything FLOURISHING. Me in a zillion ways, my creativity, even all the flowers & tomatoes in our yard....it just seems like God is letting all of it FLOURISH & it’s a bit like being in a dream, particularly after where we were for so long. So I think “flourish” is now kind of the theme of our 2018! Might have to get a sign made or a piece of jewelry with that word on it! God is SO good! He is faithful! And if you’re in a season of struggle that feels like it will never end, take heart, dear one. He WILL see you thru. Blessings WILL abound one day, if you put your faith & trust in HIM. The wait may be long but the Bible says that weeping may last for a night but joy comes in the morning. At 43, I know this to be true. ❤️

There is times where you could make me feel so happy and make me feel like the happiest girl in the world and also times when you can upset me and make me feel no longer wanted. As much as I would want to let you go.. I just wouldn’t be able to. I wouldn’t be able to give up. My love for you is too much to throw you away. My heart was stolen by you and I wouldn’t want it back. As much times as you repeat your mistake you will break me more then you have but I will love you no matter what. We have those kind of moments. But we also have happy moments such as the day I fell for you. The day you proposed. The day we got married, and every other moment we have shared. Times when we don’t fight are the happiest times and that’s when I’m at my best. But when I’m treated disrespectfully those just aren’t my moments. No matter what I will smile and be happy no matter what situation it would be. Pain or no pain nothing can stop me from being a happy me. Not even a broken heart. My love for you will grow. I will not give up the way you have. Mistakes are made to be repeated to learn our lessons. The day I fell for you was something special. Since that day I have been in love with you. My heart would never regret falling for you even if I say I do. My heart has a different perspective from me. When I talk to you I fear a fight will be held. I try and prevent them from happening with just an apology even when I do nothing. Us at our good times are the best times. As long as I’m with you I will keep loving you till my last breathe. I have waited for you before and I do not regret a moment of the wait. I waited for somebody special and here you and I are almost A year later. 9 months in counting. As long as those months go up and up I will always have a smile on my face.

Tickling you soo much to the point you'd start running away from me everytime you saw me 😝 That look on your face will always be priceless, you used to get so scared of me haha!
Remember how you used to tell me you knew that the moment I'd step out of India I'd forget everything about it? You couldn't be more wrong. Every memory and every person I met there have stayed so close to my heart that now is impossible to forget, mostly you because of how old and grumpy and impatient and fatty and crazy you are! But more importantly, because from the very beginning you treated me like a daughter, to the point you became my grandpa, someone so difficult to leave behind once the moment to leave came. And that's why I'm now saying thank you soo much for everything you did for me and to me, like feeding me when I was too lazy to cook haha, for explaining me your culture, for occasionally having some good nonveg Domino's pizza with me, for teaching me some Hindi and Gujarati words I haven't forgotten yet (like tu taru kam kar 😝) for always looking after me, for making me talk and laugh when I needed it the most, for being such a good friend I'm sure I won't be able to forget.
I guess that with this long post all I'm trying to say is that, even though it makes me sad to think that a year ago I was celebrating your birthday right next to you while on our way to Abu, and now I'm extremely far away from where you are so this is pretty much all I can do for now, I'm happy to say that I'm thankful to life as I now have the chance to wish you all the good and amazing things you deserve because of how good and amazing you are. Happy birthday grandpa 🎁🎉🎈🎂 Hope this brings a really big smile on your face the moment you wake up and read it. And as you Indians say, many many many happy returns of the day ❤👳 Take care, you old man! I miss you soooo much, but remember that I will see you soon 😊

The latter part of 2017 was probably the lowest I felt in my life and I never knew what depression and anxiety was until I hit that point. I was in really bad health both mentally and physically and I decided to take pretty much the whole of 2017 out of making music because of I was in the worst mental place to be creative and I was on the edge of giving up on music entirely. ⁣

The start of this year I decided to get back on track with things just one step at a time, first was to get back in shape and focus on my health. I made a lot of changes to my diet and began working out every day which I continue to do now. I also cut down the partying massively (I still party as I love it haha, just when I have a reason to celebrate). I changed up the way I approach making music with my work ethic and creative process and the first song that came out after these changes was “U” which I’m still overwhelmed over its success. ⁣

So I’m really happy to announce my next chapter with the exclusive signing with @armadamusic and my new single clockwork. I have some of my best remixes ever coming out this month and an amazing vocal single + some insane collabs in the works. ⁣

I thought I’d tell you all this because if anyone out there is going through dark times there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel and you’ll be stronger than ever if you have a will to wanna better yourself. ⁣

Thanks to all my amazing friends who were there aswell, you legends!⁣

Much love and see you on all the dance floor soon! Let’s smash it x ❤️⁣

Oh, boy, a lot of thing make me happy, but I can't list some of the top things that make me happy because I'd get in deep poop if my school ever found out.

1) Genuinely nice people
Y'know, just those random sweet people on the street who compliment you on whatever and, of course, the nice people you see on a daily basis—that's something to smile about
2) Making a meaningful, long-lasting, long-distance friendships (basically Internet friends)
These people are basically your friend for you and your personality—not your looks, not your money, not just to sit at the cool kids table lol (of course, there's always people who do it because they do somehow know you have money, good looks, etc., but for the most part not)
I love it when I can find people who I can be snarky, sassy, and rude to—and they do the same—and still be able to share my fears and dreams with them
It isn't like high school/college friendships where you're just friends because you see each other nearly every day, but once high school is done, it's like, "Don't even breathe in my direction." 3) Books, man.
Just... books are great

4) Falling asleep instantly after a long day of hard, productive work
Who doesn't love that? You earned that sleep!

5) My mom and grandma
They make me laugh until I can't breathe. My grandma always shows me things she thinks are interesting, she unintentionally makes ridiculous jokes, I found out she curses... like, a lot...
My mom and I are so close. She's loving and caring but still does those ridiculous mom things that we can all relate to lol. We laugh at funny things my grandma does, we share secrets with each other—it's great
6) Cats and dogs
Give me all of them

7) When I get a good grade and my partner (who did no work whatsoever) gets a low grade
It's kinda mean and vindictive, but it's true. At least, I'm honest. Like, excuse me, you deserve to fail—you're lucky you didn't, but whaddup, b*tch, I got an A

8) Anime
Weeb life ftw lol (Continued in comments)

Tag a friend that does a "FEED ME" dance like my Henry before meals 😹🤣! It's the holiday season and that means lots of yummy foods! It also means we need to be careful about what foods our pets have access too. Remember, common toxic foods to pets include: chocolate, grapes/raisins, onion, garlic, and high-fat foods (i.e. Christmas hams, bacon). And on this topic, it's important to know which foods and ingredients provide a complete and well-balanced diet for your pet! Here's a pet food fact for you: Did you know that most dogs tolerate and digest grains just fine? Just like people, grains can provide quality nutrition for your pet as they're high energy, high fiber and offer more vitamins (like vitamin E) compared to other carbohydrate sources such as potatoes. Another tip: By-products have been commonly used in both human and animal food throughout history because they provide an excellent source of protein, healthy fats and minerals. But check to make sure all animals used originate at facilities certified by the USDA or an equivalent authority. To ensure your pets live long and happy lives as we head in to the new year, check out the link in my bio for more on nutritional pet food ingredients. Wishing you and your pets a wonderful holiday season! #misterspins #foodtwirls #dog #feedme #sponsored #henryismylittleballerina #💃

Do you remember when you used to write postcards? Have you ever? Do you still? It feels like so long ago to me. Another life.
~~
This time of the year: a busy one for the mail system. So many postcards from near and far flung places. So many happy words, so many “I wish you were here, you’d love it here.” Greetings from school friends who went to the same seaside town every summer; greetings from cousins you’d only ever hear from once a year; greetings from the mountains and from Paris. Cheesy photos on the front — maybe some Italian coastline at sunset, maybe the Big Ben — scraggy cursive or childish caps on the back. ~~
I used to have an address book I would take with me so that I could remember zip codes and such. I remember the bittersweet feeling of the last days of a holiday, the time spent choosing the postcards for this and that person, learning how to say “stamps” in a foreign language, counting coins. I remember the time we all — my parents, my brother and I — spent hunched on the table of some café, all focused on our writing, all trying to be original, all failing miserably at that and reverting to “un bacione”. ~~
Postcards. The end of a holiday. Memories of a holiday shared with others. Now, we have instagram.

Father Fixer- soooo, my boys are all going to a dance tonight and were mortified when they realized they waited too long to ask me to take them to the barber shop and by the time they did they were all closed...we even drove to two of them to check and beg...no luck.

Father Fixer- soooo, my boys are all going to a dance tonight and were mortified when they realized they waited too long to ask me to take them to the barber shop and by the time they did they were all closed...we even drove to two of them to check and beg...no luck.

So while driving home they asked me if I could give them haircuts like I did when they were little... I laughed and said I didn’t even know if we still have clippers.. “Well, CVS has some Dad,” is the reply I got. So we swung by, picked some up, and I became a barber for a night... They are actually pretty happy with their haircuts...and it was a special Father Son moment....now it’s off to the dance for these little lady killers!!! #jasonlanier #family #boytime #haircut

As most know, all of the pretties on the website are ready before listing, so when I list them they ship within 7 to 10 business days. (usually less) The only items you have to wait for are Skull babies (Nicodemus, Dregons, etc.) and Pre-order items.
The Circe Necklace is still in pre-order status but today is the LAST DAY you can order one at the pre-order price. They have been slow to finish because each one takes such a long time for me to set. I am shipping them out in the order they were ordered. I have only shipped out 8 to this date but more will be out within the next two weeks. Today is the last day and I am closing the pre-orders so I can catch up and take more photos of these beauties. If you ordered a Circe, it will be on it's way soon! You will get an email letting you know when your baby is complete! This has been a true labor of love! I dreamed of these for over 5 years and finally I see them manifest before me! •
Second Necklace, The Caroline Mourning Necklace, I have just released a few more today. Old Stock. These will not be made again and are discontinuing as soon as they are gone. A true EPJ Classic of Gothy Goodness! Tomorrow I will have a post ready that goes into how they came about and the old link to my old blog about them. I feel like I am going to miss this necklace the most! •
Happy Full Moon! This week's end will be an energy whirlwind. I welcome it with open arms! Thank you life! •

To try to become an overnight success. But that can be very risky and a big fall can set you back even further.

When we hear about someone else’s success, it seems like it happened overnight. But we weren’t there with them in the trenches, in the dark and lonely times. We don’t know how much it actually took for them to get to where they are. We don’t know what they learned along the way or what sacrifices they made.

By trying to become an overnight success, you greatly increase your chances of becoming a long-term failure. You’re probably not going to be an overnight success, but you can be a twenty-year success. In my experience that’s what it’s going to take.

Start small and stick with it. Plant the seeds for the life you want. Keep watering them, and over time they will grow. We can have many of things we want if we’re willing to be patient and consistent. A little at a time, adds up to a scary amount over the long run. Trust me!

I picked up my cello after 2 weeks away from it with holiday comings and goings. I always worry I’m going to forget how to play when I don’t get to play for this long. Like 20 years of practicing will just be undone. I’m a bit rusty, but I didn’t forget. Bach will re-teach me how to use this bow thingy ... I picked up my cello after 2 weeks away from it with holiday comings and goings. I always worry I’m going to forget how to play when I don’t get to play for this long. Like 20 years of practicing will just be undone. I’m a bit rusty, but I didn’t forget. Bach will re-teach me how to use this bow thingy properly and play in tune again. Not 100% yet, though. We’ll get there. Happy New Year, everyone. ❤️

At every stage of life you encounter preconceived ideas about what your life should look like.

At 16 it's studying hard and considering university.

At 20 it's being a bit of a mess but still on the road to achieving your goals.

At 25 it's that you've got some qualifications and are smashing it in your job of choice.

At 30 it's that you're settling down with a career, a partner and potentially with kids on the horizon.

If you don't fit into these neat little boxes, here comes the questions...and the judgements.

So not only might you be feeling really unsure about what you want and what to do...you've then got random people telling you what THEY think YOU should be doing.

Like they've got YOUR life all figured out.

Have you experienced this?

I'd be surprised if you said no.

So what do you do? Do you get angry? Do you ignore them? Do you find some sort of excuse?

Most of us feel the need to explain ourselves when our life and our choices don't fit into their idea of normal.

Have you felt frustrated about this, perhaps exhausted? Maybe exasperated?

Like....leave me alone yeah?

So I'm here saying you do you.

Stuff whatever other people think you should be doing.

Ask yourself a few questions.

Is this path making you happy?

Are your choices now building the sort of future that will fulfill you in the long run?

Are you contributing to the world in a positive way?

Are you doing what you want to be doing? What you find yourself daydreaming about when you envision your best life?

And if not... what are you waiting for?

Thanks to @lauraalycebell for sharing this shot full of magic with #ladiesgoneglobal 💫🧡
