Ok we are back for more of the gym bag essentials again. This week we kick off with some nutrition. I keep a serious gym bag. So let's continue sharing what I keep in mine, in hopes of helping you find ways to have a killer bag, with materials to use across a ton of modalities and situations.

I have to take a minute here and try not to be to corny but I LOVE @plante_protein !!
-
This amazing company is the brainchild of my good friend, fellow hustler, former Military Vet, and all around amazing human being @the_sustainable_ceo.
-
Not only has the guy, and his team created an amazing tasting, protein packed bar. But they also had done so while keeping it VEGAN!
-
They preach sustainability in everything they do. Focusing on creating quality products to serve health and wellness while NEVER compromising and doing so at the cost of the environment.
-
They have taught me a few things that have really opened my eyes.
-
This bar is so dope for me to keep in my gym bag. Its got a solid amount of protein and is extremely nutrient dense.
-
Which is something that can be so overlooked.
-
You might be getting CALORIES. But are those calories quality? If they are NOT nutrient dense... you are already losing.
-
Love this bar! Thanks for making such a great product @planet_protein.

A love letter to this place I am living in - this new place of deeper experiences, deeper relationships, deeper understanding, deeper confusion, and deeper appreciation for the things and people that are good and kind and loving. This year of growth and change. The past few weeks of acute depression and anxiety, after a year of intermittent depression and anxiety. The moments of incredible happiness, chased by the fear of everything ending. The moments of pain and heartbreak, chased by the thought “what if nothing feels normal again?” Some days feel endless, and sometimes it feels like you cannot blink without losing minutes or hours of precious time. More growth. More change. This is where I am living. And that’s okay. It’s okay to not love every moment. It’s okay to not love school, when it feels like it goes against the way that you have been taught to learn. It’s okay to not love the fear and pain, when it feels like it is unnecessary. It’s okay to not love the process. The process of deepening your life and checking the boxes and doing the busy-work and choosing the responsible path, when you just want to break free and explore the world, spontaneously and openly. It’s okay to love deeply. To love experiences and to love people and to love things that are not guaranteed to always exist. It’s okay to love the physical space you are in, even when it feels like you might become stuck if you give it too much energy. And it’s okay to love your own self, and your own process, even when you see parts of yourself that you want to change. It’s okay to let go. It’s okay to release the fear. It’s okay for things to feel good and it’s okay when they don’t. Go for long walks. Connect with people. Sleep. Prioritize your health - however you define it. Get out in nature. This is all just part of the process. 💙💙💙

Thought Topic: Appreciation 🍃Learn to appreciate what you have before time forces you to appreciate what you had🍃 I didn't know that when I first met her, but the first dog that I ever had would be my best friend. She only lived two years, but she taught me so much about life and about love. She was the kind of best friend that was relentless when you were sad. She would stick her head in my lap and let me cry until I no longer felt the need to. I still remember the day that I came home to the words "BeBe's dead". If you're the kind of person that doesn't understand how someone could love an animal the way they love a person, I feel bad for you. She provided me with the best kind of friendship I've ever known. There were no conditions or ultimatums, and certainly no agendas. She loved me and I love her, and that's all there was to it. That's why when she left me in this great big world all alone without her, it really took a toll on my heart. But in losing her, she taught me her last and greatest lesson: that it is our job to love the people in our lives everyday and to show them with our actions and our words just that; that the greatest gift you can give to somebody is to appreciate them. #love #imissyou #bestfriend

I was studying Engineering at Melbourne University and everything he had ever said to me suddenly clicked. "Live life passionately, Deena. Life is short. You're wasting your talents and creativity." It makes me so sad that he had to go to teach me that but as he had also always said "Through tragedy, comes beauty." From his passing, I dropped everything - I fell into music, I fell into writing, I fell into drawing and I spent every bit of my energy towards creating and supporting those who do because he showed me the importance of it through the beautiful poems, art and films he left behind.

I know he would be so proud of me today but I can't help but feel the heartbreak of losing my first love. I read a diary entry from myself 7 years today which reflected on King's older brother Lung thanking me in his eulogy as King had told him that I had put dreams in his mind and now sadly through his passing he has put dreams in mine.

May your romantic soul be resting. We all miss you dearly. "Your dawning day is of the waning moon,
Your shining star is of the blackest sky,
Your song is the mockingbird's time
Who knows not how to fly
No less, what's more is what must be
Yours is a love tried and true,
For the moon of waning night is me
The light this dawning day is you."
- Teng King Ong 🌹

It’s been over 2 weeks now and no words can even describe the rollercoaster of losing yet another beautiful family member ... my moms best friend... my aunt Tia Estella. I’ve been pretty dormant lately processing how not a single moment went by where I never felt anything but love and support from this 2nd mother of mines here in New York ever since I was a little boy. Soon after that during high school I would come to live and train in city during the summers where I’d come home to my aunts where I felt nothing but ‘home’. I’d be lying in saying that losing your mom AND your aunt both within 7 months doesn’t feel beyond out of the normal but I know that they’re finally dancing up above ... TOGETHER. It’s unreal how much I love and miss you both. I pray that you both take care of each other as I promise to take care of the family and ties I have on this earth with me now. Time really is so short. It’s very clear that this is a sign to make bigger moves, achieve bigger dreams and above all be kind and love everyone around you even MORE.
I promise you Tia Estella and mom that I will forever be the man you’ve made me be. Here’s to your Legacies. RIP Estella (Maxima) x Julia

We all have a sun inside us that is waiting to shine, a seed in us waiting to blossom, a love in us waiting to be shared. Always remember that hurt people, hurt other people. Always remember that no human is above this learning process and this journey. No human is above the humility and beauty of giving an apology and no person is bad enough to not be forgiven. I highly reccomend each person study human behavior, how manipulation sneaks out the back door, so that we can recognize it in ourselves and in others. We all have to learn to check ourselves. We all need to learn the definition of what rational behavior is. We need to learn where to draw lines. When to speak up. When to turn away. When to say I am done. When to say no. When to say yes. And when to release. Im really loving my process recently. Theres been very tough moments and times where I thought "I am losing grip" but then I bring myself back to center and I realize everything is perfect and exactly as it should be. Life is so beautiful. Life is so perfect. Life is so blessed. Remember that above all gratitude no matter where you stand is a powerful force of nature that can completely transform your life. I am wordlessly grateful. Alhamdullilah. I love having the beloved in my heart. When I feel like I am losing my mind I bring myself back to my heart, my connection to source, my love. I really lost faith for awhile. Just thinking about the mess I was, makes me shiver. Remember that when you start making positive changes there is a force out there that works through everything from people to little brief situations that will aim to bring you down. Keep your head up and remember that we all behave according to exactly where we stand internally. What does your behavior tell you about you? What do you learn about yourself based on how you face things? I always ask myself this question. The answer sometimes a difficult one to face. But there is no growth without pressure. Be patient and remember you are a work of art, here to make a difference by making a change in yourself, by undoing, reprogramming, relearning, and becoming love.

My mom (@kokomaxipants) just texted this to me. 🤯 I never really thought of it that way! But I LOVE this!

Back when I was losing weight the first time my motivation was love. I didn’t love myself and didn’t value myself so I felt I needed to look a certain way to find love. That was my main motivation to lose weight the first time. Talk about not putting me or MY needs first. That being said, I gained the weight back. Mostly due to not understanding why it was important to keep off, I still did not value or love myself so when I started gaining figured that’s what I deserve and thought I was now invincible to gaining. Food was always my enemy. It made me feel guilt, shame, sadness, frustration, anger, the list goes on. Or at least I THOUGHT that’s what made me feel those things. In hindsight it wasn’t the food at all! Like momma always says, “it’s not what you’re eating, it’s what’s eating you!” I was feeling those things for numerous reasons and it wasn’t because of the food. It was because of other things in my life and food was a way to feel control and to feel pleasure. Cause... Mmmmm! So of course it was only natural to think of workouts as punishment for eating those French fries and of course there were so many negative emotions around food and working out.

Don’t worry. Present Stephanie now only laughs at past Stephanie(in a loving way) but also thanks her for those life lessons. Here’s my thing now: I LOVE who I am. I LOVE the way I look, at ALL sizes because I know I’m awesome at 180lbs or 340lbs. When my mom sent this to me it. Sparked a whole new motivation.

Rather than complaining about having to move and sweat why not celebrate the fact that I can still move and sweat. I feel like we take little things we have for granted and in the long scheme of life we don’t value what’s important! Enjoy exercising because someday we might not be able to! Enjoy eating healthy because it’s crucial for quality of life. You AND your body deserve to live a LONG happy life. So let’s start to change our mindsets for the more positive!

Thank you, Momma for always helping me grow. I love you!

I’ve gained 2 pounds. Weight👏🏽 Isn’t👏🏽 The👏🏽 Only👏🏽 Way👏🏽To👏🏽Gauge👏🏽Strength.👏🏽 Please, please, please, for the love of god, stop telling people or insinuating that they look better for losing weight. Whenever we tell someone who is insecure about their size that they look good for losing weight, what we’re really doing is telling them that they look better skinnier than they did before. Growing up, I did everything I could to lose weight (EVERYTHING EXCEPT ADOPT A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE) because people always noticed when I starved myself or crash dieted and quickly lost weight. “Did you lose weight? You look great!” They’d say. And I’d hear, “You look so much better skinnier than you did before.” It wasn’t until I was 26 years old and joined the #SportsBraSquad that I took my shirt (and my armor) off and started working to let go of my obsession with being skinny and truly see the strength I work so hard for. It’s unrealistic and unhealthy for me to constantly train for marathons. Our bodies are always changing and it’s important that I love my body just as much when I’m casually active as I do when I’m in the thick of marathon training. HEALTH IS NOT A LOOK, IT’S A LIFESTYLE. That’s why I love “THIS is what STRENGTH looks like”. It’s impossible not to feel like shit when you compare yourself and your size to either fitness models with different body types than you or with what your body looked like during that marathon you worked your ass off for two years ago. So stop comparing. Love where you’re at and work for an even stronger tomorrow. THAT’S what it’s all about. 🚀 #ProjectMoonshotNYC #ThisIsWhatStrengthLooksLike #NikeNYC #TeamNike #JustDoIt #BadassLadyGang 📸 @fredgoris

Law #5: The Law Of Motivation

When you show love and give love, it should stem from love. At times in the past I have given love in the hope to receive love, after reading this chapter I now realise that doing loving things and making sacrifices was not motivated by love but by fear.

Many of us may say 'YES' out of fear that we will lose love. Listed below are false motives as to why our mindset:

1. Fear of loss of love, or abandonment.

2. Fear of others' anger.

3. Fear of loneliness.

4. Fear if losing the "good me" inside. We are made to love. As a result, we are not loving, we are in pain. Many people cannot say "I love you AND I do nog want to do that." Such a statement does not make sense to them. They think that TO LOVE MEANS TO ALWAYS SAY YES.

5. Guilt. Many people's giving is motivated by guilt. They are trying to do enough good things to k second the guilt inside and feel good about themselves. When they say no, they feel bad. So they keep trying to earn a sense of goodness. (Try reflect on this one, giving away money or your time out of guilt is extremely common). 6. Payback. Many people have received things with guilt messages. People feel a burden to pay got all they have been given.

7. Approval. (Spending money on things you don't want or need to impress people who don't even add value in your life). 8. Over identification with the other's loss. Many times people have not dealt with their own disappointments and losses, so whenever they deprive someone else with a no, they "feel" the other person'a sadness and the nth degree. They cannot stand to hurt someone that badly, so they comply.

The Law of Motivation says this:

FREEDOM FIRST, SERVICE SECOND.

Apply this boundary when dealing with your money... Pay your bills first, take care of all your responsibilities... SAVE... THEN GIVE WHAT YOU CAN AFFORD.

Looking after your money results in looking after yourself and your responsibilities & that's FREEDOM ❤️

Fear is our greatest teacher.
One of my wise dear friends said this to me yesterday & it stung me, in the best way. I have been trying for so long to free myself from it, release fears that hinder me, but alas, is all about perspective... to embrace!
🙌🏽
Embracing fear is something to be reckoned with. When we fully accept the fact that we ARE fearful, we can then recognize where the fear comes from. WHY are you fearful? Well... fear is simply a construct of the mind. We actually create it ourselves
😳
What we create is a product of past experiences, when we allow past pain to effect our current present state. We hold ourselves back from love because we have been hurt in the past. We WILL make mistakes, yet get scared of repeating patterns of when we might have failed... which often creates the same situation that we are afraid of. Go figure
🤷🏼‍♀️
Worst one is our fear of success. We doubt ourselves because we are afraid of our full potential. Or questioning our worthiness, feeling undeserving of success, or fear of failing & feeling embarrassed 🙈
It is dangerous to identify with our mistakes as apart of who we are, as it is NOT true 🙅🏼‍♀️

What is holding us back from expansion is actually ourselves. It is ALL inside of us. The magic, the love & yes, the fear. When we embrace fear as apart of our being, we can then align with it
🙏🏽
We are scared of letting go, of losing something we love, so we act out of fear. Why are we scared of loss? Because we LOVE something
Fear comes from love
Grief comes from love
We grieve because we love what was lost.
Recognizing this can help to switch perspective. We can appreciate the fact that we have loved, accept our past... we can allow this to shift our relationship with fear, &help us to E X P A N D 🙌🏽
💫
Fear is our greatest teacher. Pay attention to lessons. Let go of attachment to fear &create space for more love, for manifestation of what you truly desire
We can call in transformative magic
To walk in truth
To walk in love
💗
Today I will recognize my fears, I will honour them as something to learn from, thus releasing any feelings of caged imprisonment. I will transform fear into love 💕 ✨

.
I was tired. I was premenstrual. I was frustrated. But most of all, I was disappointed because something I vied for, didn’t come into fruition. It was a hard blow. A hard No. A self-reflecting realization that I wasn’t good enough – at least not this time, and perhaps every other time I sought something and ‘failed’. .
As I was sitting in my office, hands over eyes, holding back tears and asking all the whys, what’s and how’s…I was reminded of the day, years ago, when I was told our rental application was denied because our property manager was constantly unavailable to confirm our good standing. I had fallen in love with the potential rental and already envisioned where my office would be and what school the kids would attend. It was a competitive housing market and I felt frustrated, disappointed, even angry that I was in this vulnerable position of renting.
.
I was losing faith. Just like I was losing faith in myself, my efforts and my works when I was denied the other day. Back then I also cried while losing hope. Somewhere in-between my tears my husband reminded me to have patience, faith and discipline – and focus on a home we truly wanted, not something we could frugally afford in our earliest years together.
.
I think of how to play the long game often, especially as I continue to work towards lofty goals of empowering women, encouraging community, promoting health and fostering healthy friendships. I’m no stranger to rejection, but it still stings just as bad as that moment I lost the house I really wanted. And I suppose it should sting, after all, it’s better to love, hope strive and live passionately, than to not dream any dream at all.
.
Most recently, I was visiting my sister and drove passed a particular home on her street I had admired for years. I loved its drive-in garage towards the back. I loved the small steps leading to the front door and always imagined how grand this large house looked inside. On that day however, instead of driving by, I stopped right in front of the house in astonishment.  While the outdoor paint, stonework and yard were different, I recognized the floor plan, because it was CONT...⬇️

✨Restriction does not equal being healthy. ✨Losing weight does not equal being healthy. ✨Body size does not indicate body health. ✨If it sacrifices your mental health it is NOT worth it. ✨We have been trained to believe that unless we are restricting ourselves with food and compensating for what we ate with exercise we are “not healthy” or “not taking care of ourselves”. This could not be farther from the truth. There are so many more significant reasons to move and nourish your body in a way that’s appropriate for you other than losing weight or satisfying beauty standards! Also, people who want to lose weight are not always doing it for aesthetic reasons and if clients come to me with the goal of losing weight I will dig and dig for the real reason behind why, and the majority of the time it has nothing to do with appearance. ✨So let’s Stop assuming that the only reason someone would want to exercise is to satisfy beauty standards!!! You CAN be healthy at any size!! You CANNOT assume what someone’s health is based off of their physical appearance! You do not know their story or their capabilities just by looking at them.
And finally: ✨You CAN trust your body✨ We are taught that unless we are restricting ourselves in some way we are not taking care of ourselves but we are also taught that we cannot trust our bodies. That we need to restrict ourselves, give strict guidelines because we cannot rely on our own body’s natural cues and ability to take care of us and allow us to thrive. The truth is that when you restrict you lose those natural cues of hunger, satiety, and you lose the trust you once had in your own body to know what’s best. You do not need to listen to diet culture telling you that you need restriction! Eating and living intuitively is possible!
❤️Your body knows what’s best, trust it. And ask for help if you need it.

Sometimes you just have to pick yourself back up, climb out of your hole, breathe, and create something beautiful and new. Learn from your life, because I believe that it will make you stronger and more resilient in the end. In the process, it doesn’t feel like it. You’ll feel battered and beaten down by life, like you can’t go on, or maybe you can but don’t see any reason to. I’ve felt that for a long time, but I’m here to proudly say that if you completely change your situation- like, walk out on all of it for the sake of getting your head right- you can survive. When you are pushed so far, you’re desperate for a solution to simply surviving; a solution that helps you want to live. I’ll be fine, after everything that’s happened over the course of the last 5 years, starting with nearly dying from Dengu ein 2013, to losing most my immediate family, to finding out the truth about my childhood, to a faulty marriage and working way too hard, to losing my very best friend and daughter, Chloe- I will survive all of this. And why? I do ask myself why, often, so I’m not out of the deep end yet. But the reason why is because I remember the thrill of life. I remember the feeling of love at first sight, and falling in love slowly, I remember the simultaneous joy and pain of crying on airplanes leaving places I’ve lived and love. I remember surfing overhead glassy waves of absolute perfection and how big my smile was, and I remember knee high days with people I absolutely love that brought me the same joy. I remember playing music in so many situations- shows, on beaches, festivals, intimately- and I remember how it shaped me and told the world who I was inside. I remember the flavor of Açaí and fish tacos. I remember the drama, the hurt and the pain, and then the feeling of love and pleasure immediately after and realizing how quickly life can change. I remember dying when I was 14 and having the most profound experience far away in the universe, which showed me where I was and what I was, and where I’d go back to if I ever decided to take my life. But this life is mine.

Losing Buster has not been like losing a pet, but like losing my dearest friend. Even more so, he was my best friend. He made every day more special. Bad days became good, and good days became amazing just from being in his presence. His big doggy smile and perky 'yoda' ears always left a smile on my face. He supported me through 18 years of my life including being my biggest rugby supporter. He even helped me during times of grieving, such as when I lost my dad. I would have not have been as strong if it wasn't for him. It's still a shock not to have him here with me. I still find myself feeling excited to come home after a long day, only to then remember that he will not be there to great me at the door. It's the simple things I miss as well, like hearing his little foot steps on the hardwood floor and hearing him trying to pull his bag of treats out of his treat jar. I will forever miss his furry snuggles and doggy kisses 💕 Buster, I will meet you one day at the rainbow bridge 🌈until then, I know you will be at peace, having endless amounts of treats and playing tug-of-war (he never really learned the true concept of fetch 🤣) with daddy 💕 I love you forever and always my sweet boy 🐶💕 #sappypost #dogsareagirlsbestfriend

After losing my mom, I noticed my relationships change - especially with my daughters. In a beautiful, new way. From loss, grew love. {If you’ve lost someone, you know exactly what I mean.} The realization of what love truly is - seeing it in places I hadn’t seen before, soaking up moments that I let fly by before, never ever saying “maybe later” to anyone ever again, memorizing the sound of their laughs and the feeling of their hugs. When it comes to moms and daughters, I know what was and I know what can be. My relationship with my mom was perfect, and that’s why losing her has been so painful. But, y’all, He promises: He will make beautiful things out of the dust. And He has. From loss, a deeper love was born. Not a moment is taken for granted. My girls are my very best friends. My prayers always include pleas to grow very, very old with them. To love on their babies in the decades to come. All of the love that I could have poured into my mom in these years where I am missing her so much, I pour into my girls. To the point where I probably annoy the snot out of them, but, gosh, if I can have even a fraction of the perfection of me and my mom’s relationship - if I can have that with my girls? Shew, I will win big. 💝 Taylor created this necklace for @shoptinyshines and I adore it. I’m so thankful that she agrees that this love is pretty stinkin powerful, and eternal. Wearing this one forever and always, in memory of my mom, and in honor of being a mom. 💛

Today is your birthday. Your 8th in heaven and my 8th without you here on earth.

I wish I could celebrate with you like we had done all our lives, but this is my reality now when it comes to your birthdays. .
The pain of losing you will never go away but I think @freespiritedbossbabe Steph said it best when she wrote, “The pain doesn’t leave you, it evolves and can grow into the fibers of who you are in the most beautiful way.”
.
I’ve never read such truer words that described my grieving more perfectly. And at the time I needed it most. Sure I can choose to be sad and let myself fall into a downward spiral of “why him, why me..” or, I can choose to take my pain and my grief and turn it into being a better mom, a better daughter, a better friend, a better me.
.

Losing my brother 7 years ago destroyed me. But year by year I’ve ALLOWED the pain to become the fibers that have evolved into who I am now, how I love now and for that I am grateful. And today I smile through the pain to celebrate his life on the day he was born. To remember him always as the loudest, most loving, ride or die best brother there ever was. Happy birthday in heaven Marques. I love you. #mybrotherskeeper #32 #happybirthday #grief #lifeafterloss

There exists few souls who know how to gut me.
Upsetting every inch of this body.
Anger turns to hurt turns to a saddened silence.
I can feel the body weaken.
In awe that I allow them to deplete me.
Because I know in their minds they feel they're winning.
A strange foreign thought occurs..
"Am I losing?"
And I feel insane, deranged, now I'm sleepy.
To decide if they are losing or winning, I cannot.
My one power, my one choice, my only decision has arrived after this place of silent confusion.
I wish them not to lose but to heal.
I wish these souls love. I wish these souls well.
Losing I am not.
I am light. I am love.
There will never exist a soul that can permanently take this away.
I am the chooser. I am the doer and love comes in.

After I got baptized, my life fell.apart. Not exaggerating.
Now, if you’ve heard me speak or read my book, than you know this.
But I realized today that all191K of you following me haven’t & this isn’t common knowledge to most of you.

I’ve never known loneliness UNTIL I got baptized.
I’ve never known such painful sacrifice & loss & indescribable anguish until I joined the Church.

So when you see posts of me traveling to speak - it’s ALL of those things I open up about in great detail b/c of my decision to follow God.

I talk openly about the times I felt my desperate pleadings weren’t heard, or I was asked to do something so painfully hard, me screaming at God until literally losing my voice, wondering where He was- if He even cared still about ME – or if He was even there at all.

It'd be TOO EASY to blame all of this on God & turn back to 21 years of habit, tradition, contentment, &culture lay deep within my roots.

In-depth details are in my book-I hope you read it so you can see what it is that had kept me going when it was too easy to not.

But, my point isn’t to “sell” you on reading my book.
My point is, you’re not alone. My point is, I know.
Like you, I also know what it is to wonder, to doubt, to struggle, to sink, to feel empty, judged, abandoned, unwanted, unworthy, tried, tired, & alone.
Losing our voice, losing hope, losing strength. Forcing yourself to use faith you don’t even know if you have or not.

But what you(I hope) see on my page, it’s real. Real happiness & real smiles.
I know it's painfully hard, BUT I also know HOW POSSIBLE it is & *how worth it* it is- to keep going.
The happiness (you may) see is NOT b/c my life is easy (HA!) or b/c I don’t still lose my voice yelling at Him sometimes. It is literally the complete opposite-but b/c of it all, I KNOW God. & I love Him w/ a real love.
& I couldn’t trade that knowledge & relationship for anything.

Because time & time again, through unwanted-unexpected, & uncharted paths, God has brought me to the *BEST things.

HARD TIMES WILL ALWAYS BE THERE – BUT SO WILL GOD.
And w/ Him do we overcome & conquering everything.
With Him- WE CAN OVERCOME & CONQUER THE FREAKING WORLD :)

I put up a poll in my story a few days ago, and 92% said Yes. So here it is:

How I lost 64lbs without working out and without avoiding cake. (Disclaimer: I do reccomend everyone to work out, but I have a chronic illness so working out was not an option for me)
Weightloss tips and «Busted myths» «I wanna lose weight - but I hate working out» - Weightloss is ALL about food. I didnt work out at all (see disclaimer) BUT if you want to shape your body while losing weight, you have to work out as well as eating right «I love chocolate too much»
- So do I! And I eat it quite often! You should just eat a little less. Dont cut out food you love. Just chang the amount a bit. «I hate salads»
- You can lose weight without eating one single salad. (But there are SO many different salads out there, that you cant really hate them all) «You need to follow a strict diet to lose weight»
- Ive tried several diets. And the only one that works is the diet where you dont follow a diet. Yup, stay away from all the crazy diets out there. Because if you restrict yourself to a certain diet, you are more likely to fail. Having «no-foods» (food that is not allowed in your diet) makes you crave them more. And eventually you most likely will end up binging on something «bad». Allowing yourself to eat whatever you want, but just change the size of your portions, and maybe add some vegetables, makes losing weight (and sticking with it) easy. «Carbs makes you fat»
- no. They dont. Carbs are good for you!! They are your bodys main source og energy. But just remember to eat fats and proteins too! «I hate being hungry, so I cant stick to a diet for more than a few days»
- Well who doesnt hate being hungry?? If your hungry while losing weight, then youre doing it wrong! Weightloss is all about eating and not about skipping meals! You just have to fill yourself with the right food!
My best tip is to track your calories! The app «myfitnesspal» makes it easy for you. To figure out how many calories you should eat, all you have to do is Google «TDEE calculator» fill it in and get the amount of calories you need to keep your weight. Could not fit all - MORE IN COMMENTS

There's a very very fine line in promoting body positive and unhealthy lifestyle/obesity. Body shaming does not occur to plussize only. It extends to those who are skinny too. Our role is to encourage us ladies to love our body and lose weight because of the love. The important thing is: DO NOT STAY STAGNANT.
.
I've been on both ends of wanting to lose weight. Years ago, I completely hated the way I look. I would wear my tudung covering almost my entire face because they would say "muka bulat tarik kedepan sikit tudung tu, baru tak nampak besar muka" and I would wear the darkest colour you can imagine.
.
So I started to consume weight loss pill called Lami. It worked wonders. I started to reduce in size so I continue taking bottles and bottles of it. I felt great cause it works!
.
But, to my horror, I don't even realised I shed a lot of kilos and I don't know how I looked like until I saw one of my photos last few weeks. I literally looked like a living dead. I shrunk A LOT, but that time, I didn't feel it at all. I continue taking the pills until one day, I got severe gastric. So I stopped and few months later it KKM announced that the pill can cause cardiac arrest. Can you imagine that?
.
And now I'm on the side that I wanted to lose weight because I started to feel comfortable about myself. You know, if you start this journey at a 100kg point, you start to love your body, you start to feel comfortable, once you went over that starting point, you know "My God, I've add few kilos,".
.
Naturally you'll put an effort to reduce them. That is what we want ladies. You shed your kilos because you love your body. And once you feel great losing them, you start to get addicted. My advice when you reach that peak, DO NOT STOP.
.
I have few friends that finally living a healthy lifestyle once they love themselves and they are in their normal BMI! That is what we want to achieve. So yes, we are not promoting obesity, we're merely saying, love your yourself first. Do it for yourself, not because you hate you. 💕

I guess I knew wi was in love with him when I wasn’t the best version of myself the way I was with him. He made me feel like i knew what love was. He made me feel like I was worthy of a type of love they talk about in movies and fairytales. The closest thing we have to magic is love and with him... Magic was our love. Magic was us.

I wasn’t quite ready in this picture, much like I’m not ready now, hence, in this picture my face is blurry, and right now my heart is moaning inside my chest. My mom was ready, her face smiling, clear, living and so beautiful. I remember getting ready with her this particular morning. How proud she looked at me as I walked down the stairs. How proud I always was and will forever be to have the opportunity to be her daughter. To have my stardust drawn to her spirit and create a magical set of life experiences together. Sigh. It aches all over. Losing her gives me a reverence for love that was beyond my understanding, till now. Soul love allows you to rise above the clouds and can also have you searching for the bottom, but you just keep falling. As I fall, I grab pieces along the way to construct a floor that can hold me upright and love me, more. Holidays this year have been markers of my brokenness and emotional distance. She loved Christmas. I bought decorations, but can’t stomach decorating a tree. She’d decorate her entire home. The lights, smells, her flare. I need to find a place where I can wail into the earth and be held by its promise of the cycles of life. The coming, going and evolution of it. Love. Deep. Enduring and for eternity. 💔❤️ #firstholiday #mourning #grieving #mamalove

Domestic Violence Prevention ✨✨✨Benefit Gala ✨✨✨ “If we are to fight discrimination and injustice against women we must start from the home for if a woman cannot be safe in her own house then she cannot be expected to feel safe anywhere.”
-Aysha Tarya

Domestic violence changed my entire family dynamic at the tender age of 11. My beloved Aunt LaShawn was brutally murder in front of my cousins, her children, by someone that once claimed to love her. Death is ALWAYS hard. But it’s something about losing someone you love so much In a horrific way. You don’t ever get over it, you think of ways you wish you could have helped, you conjure up ideas of how you, yourself would kill her killer, you think about the what’s if’s. What if she just left that morning instead of staying one more night. What if... To this day her children, her siblings and all who else knew and loved her have an empty void in their life where she should be. Nothing comes close to filling the void and every day when you see someone has been killed by a “lover” your wounds become tender and open and just like that you’re back at the moment when you found out your beloved was killed, robbed of a beautiful long life. And if i’m honest, my Aunt Tiana, who I recently posted and I still mourn, suffered from a broken heart which is one of the things I believe killed her in the end. Guilt and blame engulfed her despite it not being her fault at all. This is just another example of many on how domestic violence damages entire families. Like many, my aunt LaShawn was strong and decided to leave her abuser and succeeded in making a life for herself but he quickly snatched that way. Sadly, Statistics show that women (and men) are more in danger and likely to be killed when they try to leave an abusive relationship. If you are in an abusive relationship have a plan, ask for help and remember that you CAN MAKE IT. There are people out there that value you, love you and will help you.
Rest in love and peace Aunty LaShawn and Aunty Tiana. I’m always thinking of you.

It’s so fascinating witnessing the transition from training to working professionally. For me it meant losing my trust in my abilities starting doubting myself more and more because working 8 shows a week there’s no time for classes. Now I feel much more comfortable trusting the process, trusting that I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be. And This is nothing but love for music, love for dance. Galen told me to show how much I love dance in this freestyle.

With Chinese New Year around the corner. The haircut tradition is one of many Chinese New Year superstitions. Cutting your hair during the week or on the day is supposed to represent cutting your life short or cutting of good luck. With many other haircut superstitions, people also think that the first lunar month is terribly unlucky. They don’t cut their hair during the 1st lunar month because they fear it will bring them bad luck. Cutting hair is losing hair and losing hair during an unlucky month can lead to losing something even more important in their lives during the new year.

I’ve not loved her at full capacity. I’ve fed her lies & once told her she wasn’t good enough. I’ve allowed her to be broken. I’ve allowed her to run through brick walls & battle for others who won’t even stand for her. I couldn’t stop individuals from abandoning her, yet I’ve seen her still get up to be a light to the world & love others despite all. I’ve stood paralyzed by fear as she faced death alone, watching her fight for her life. Watching her lose love ones and losing herself in the grief process. Forgive me for not going to war for you like you do for others. This QUEEN is a WARRIOR. She’s not perfect but the Master calls her WORTHY! She’s UNSTOPPABLE. Gracefully broken but beautifully standing. She is love. She is life. She is transformation. She is grace. She is BRAVE! She builds Arks before there is any rain. Who wouldn’t fall in love with her for a lifetime? #iAmShe #ForeverLove #SelfLove #

Dear 2018.

Where should I start ? 2018 has been the year of major learning and growth. From losing and gaining new friendships, understanding the art of love, developing self-love and watching my son grow take his first steps into this crazy world that we live in, I can truly say it’s been a rollercoaster of emotions and I’m grateful for this journey so far. As for being a musician in this industry, It’s taken me awhile to truly find myself and overcome the stresses of being a young black male, especially in this current climax. Understanding that we don’t have to fit the social norms that they put us in.
Saying that I’ve spent countless days and night putting together ideas for the future and hopefully I can become the man I’ve always wanted to be. For those that always ask me “when are you releasing new music”.. it will come when the universe allows me to be ready and that should be soon. So let’s jump into 2019 with happiness, peace and love.

Love Jordan James.

It’s crazy to think that a year ago I wasn’t sure if I was celebrating my last birthday or not. At 24, I realize my misdiagnosis was just a test. Similar to the rest of the trials and tribulations I’ve faced. Through it all I’ve had these 3 people and many more to make me a better person. Sis made 27 this year, parents both hit 55. I’m blessed to have been raised by these parents with this sister. They stuck by my side thru dropping out of college, through losing close friends, through losing my younger cousin earlier this year. They’ve been there thru my strongest and most vulnerable moments. When I started DJing as a teenager, my goals in it were small and surface level. By those standards, I’ve made it. But there’s so much more to go... “I realize I made it cuz I had you to hold on to. Now I’m stronger, I’m wiser.” Never would have made it, never could have made it without you. It’s NEVER been perfect in my family, but it’s always been worth it. This the home team and we ain’t stopping till we’ve taken on all challengers and come out on top. I love em, and I love y’all 🙏🏾

I told myself i wasn’t going to post a pic...for whatever reason that action would solidify and make this crazy nightmare true...however the more i give out details for Friday, and the closer that day gets, i realize i must step out of denial. How ironic that our last link up would involve a heavy debate about losing loved ones to death, then 3 weeks later you’re tragically snatched away. As I’m typing this i can see that sideways/side-eyed/slightly smirking look you gave me that night (as you’ve done so many other times as well) each time you came hard for whatever point i thought i’d just made. I keep hearing your voice telling me “death is inevitable and the fact that we even existed at all is a gift... “when our people die we should celebrate that they got to live at all”...i know you wouldn’t want us to dwell is sadness...but this shit is tough. I can’t promise you i won’t be sad, and for a good while at that. This is truly heartbreaking. What I can promise is that i won’t let the sadness and the regret i feel consume me. Also, that i will forever remember and cherish memories of your gorgeous smile and infectious laugh, our intense laugh attacks (that often had people looking at us like we were nuts), heavy debates, our shared love and understanding of music, our pool side fun, random i love you texts, our tiffs/fallouts (we learned & grew from those), our “adventures”, your love of nature (despite those horrible sinuses of yours), when you held me down after ‘friends’ who said they were down for life turned their backs on me, your hilarious play dates with Chancellor, your positivity, your continual pursuit of self betterment, your unconditional love for family, people and life....and so many more memories of and with you. You deserved so much more than you got from so many people, but didn’t complain about it. You were beautiful, inside and out. I’m blessed to have shared, for the time i did, with such a dope soul. I love you babe 💔

It feels like my whole world just came crashing down 😔 The bond between a Grandmother and a Granddaughter can never be broken, but the feeling of losing your better half is a heartache that won’t stop hurting until you see each other again someday. 😣 I never thought I’d see the day I would actually have to say goodbye to my best friend. Knowing my children will never get to meet the woman who has been a huge part of my life since the beginning. Knowing you won’t be out in crowd cheering me on for my graduation from Dental Assisting school or giving your approval to the man I’ll marry some day. All that matters is that now I’ll cherish the memories where I can still see me and you holding hands as a kid, going to the state fair or to the park down the road from your house... keeping you company on the way into Albuquerque when you got off work, reading me stories or singing to me while scratching my back putting me to sleep... I hate not being able to say goodbye and hearing you tell me I love you as I’m walking out the door, there are no words to describe how much I’m going to miss you, I wish I could wake up from this horrible nightmare and be sitting in your arms once again for a brief moment just to tell you how much I love you and how much you mean to me. My life won’t be the same without you here, you’ve been my biggest supporter and there’s no way I could ever pay you back for all the things you did for me, you were so much more than just my grandmother, you were my shoulder to lean on, my best friend to tell all my problems to, my someone who could always make me laugh when I was down. I’m so glad you got to see me finish school and know I did it for you and my Mama to be on honors. I know you’ll continue to be watching over me, I just wish we had more time... I loved you then, I love you now, and I’ll love forever, because you’re never really gone, you’ll live on inside my heart. ❤️ God took another one of Angel’s, too soon for me but I understand he needed you more. God please watch over my Gram and let her soul find peace, tell her how much I miss her and how I love her more than anything in this world 😔💔 #IJustReallyMissYou #PleaseDontLeaveMe 😢😭

I am not someone who can stay alone for hours.
If I have one nightmare which scares the fuck out of me is being isolated. The thought of losing my people or not being with my people I love kills me.
They maybe far from me but we make all the efforts to be by each other's side when needed.

This is the phase I am going through right now and maybe I am losing my patience somewhere in between but trust me you can't fight with certain circumstances without someone backing you up, be it mentally or physically.

Don't let your people walk away from you. Hold them close and tight.

I didn’t realize I had the photo on the right still when I took the photo on the left, this morning. I was scrolling through my IG randomly and saw I posted the photo on the right back in June.

It’s really awesome stumbling across something like this because it’s such a great reminder that those small little changes make a difference over time. Even though it’s slow and I may not see it day to day or week to week, I am slowly getting my healthy body back. And this photo just reiterates that! The difference this time is I am taking my time and not losing who I am in the process. I’m not stressing about food anymore. I don’t feel guilt when I don’t go to the gym or when I eat French fries. I walk. I eat healthy. I say yes to things I never did before. And I’m STILL losing weight. Second time’s the charm. 😂🤦🏼‍♀️

There isn’t a huge size difference here but there is a huge difference in how I feel. And I am celebrating that today!

Remember to take life one day at a time. One healthy choice at a time. And that goes for your body and mind. Love yourself because your body will reward you if you do. 💜💜💜

She adopted him before she got married and had her own place. He was supposed to be with me only for about 4-5 months. I tried so hard to not grow attached to him so I forced myself to resent his neediness and whining and general bacin-ness. But as all cat people know, resistance is futile. You can’t not fall in love with a cat in your care.
🐯
When her house reno was finally done, I told my sister there was no way on God’s green earth I was gonna hand him over to her. We both were crying so hard over the phone. Me, for the fear of losing him. Her, for the fact she was looking forward to having him in her new home.
🐯
So after so many tearful discussions, we decided Toffy would stay with me and I got her another cat. I’m so grateful for that because having Toffy and Nikko made the pain of losing Kumo gentler and easier to deal with.

Basically, CATZ RULE.

Thanks for all the well wishes. We are safe. Over the last day I have spoken to many close friends who lost everything they own. No credible intel yet on the status of our home. But I am confident of one thing: home isn't a place. It’s a community of people you love.
. . . . . .
Losing everything material presents an opportunity. You can panic and wallow in fear. Or you can choose it as an opportunity to grow. Embrace the truth that everything is indeed impermanent.
. . . . . .
Stuff is just that. It’s your relationships that matter. Letting go isn’t easy, but surrender and acceptance bring peace. A clarity that it’s only your relationships and well-being that truly matter.
. . . . . .
I’m no master. Last night I barely slept. But I do know that strength comes only through weathering obstacles. And in my experience, there is always something beautiful on the other side.
. . . . . .
My heart is with everyone striving to survive this apocalypse. With my friends. With the community I love. With the families who have lost. With the trapped animals both wild and domestic. And all the courageous first responders working tirelessly to contain Mother Nature.
. . . . . .
Together — as a community — we will get through this🙏🏻

This amazing photo (taken by @WallySkalij of the LA Times) of rescued llamas on Zuma Beach captures the utterly surreal nature of what we are currently experiencing.

She’s terrified of spiders. So when you’re out late with friends and she texts you freaking out because there’s one on her window, please go kill it. She won’t sleep otherwise
She is a total textbook introvert. She won’t reply for hours and sometimes you won’t see her for a week. You will take this personally. Don’t. She’s simply taking care of herself and she’ll tell you how much she missed you while she was away
She’ll get very jealous. My god, she gets so jealous. Those brown eyes will turn a deep green. She hates that about herself, and she doesn’t mean to do it. Remember, she loves you. Reassure her that you love her too.
On that topic, she needs constant reassurance. Tell her you love her and mean it. If you can’t do that, leave. She deserves more than that.
There will be nights when she goes out and drinks a little too much. She’ll call you to bring her home. When you do, she’ll try to keep you up all night by tickling you and repeating “I love you and I’m sorry I’m annoying.” She’s not annoying. But make sure she has plenty of water and don’t let her pass out until she drinks it, or she will be miserable in the morning.
She is the most independent woman I know. But she’s so insecure, it still breaks my heart. So when she starts an argument with “you don’t love me.” Do not get upset. Remind her you do and the reasons why. She’ll come around.
The cat comes first. Always. Don’t ever think otherwise.
Make her tea and remember the way she takes her coffee. She will notice.
When she’s having an anxiety attack, wrap her up in your arms and rub her back. Tell her she’s safe and remind her that she has medication if she needs it.
If you cannot treat her like royalty, let someone else. That girl deserves the world.
Losing her is a pain you will never shake. Your world will come crashing down on you and those pieces won’t ever fit the way they used to. Don’t let her go.
She will love you with all she’s got. Please give her the same. 
I am begging you to not hurt her. She is golden. Don’t let that shine die out.
Give her your all and she’ll return the favor. You will never have to ask the universe for anything ever again."

The pain I feel is only multiplied seeing my sisters suffer the pain of losing you.

I’ll miss your kind heart, strength and your quirkiness. I am so honored to have been able to watch you grow into the beautiful woman you became. Your senseless and tragic passing has only reminded me once again how fleeting our time in this world is. To hold on to the people we love, and remind them how much we love them. I wish I could have seen you one last time this last January. To hug you one more time. I’m glad we got to have that one last conversation over the phone. I’ll love you forever Paina, my little sister. You made it to Paradise. 💔💔💔

Look, I know I ain't been myself lately
I've been feelin' like someone else lately
It's prolly this empty Colt 45 that's numbing the pain inside
'Cause truthfully I ain't felt lately
I'm still a sinner, I'm losing myself, I need a sign
I needed space, I needed love, I needed time
And I never understood how you could treat me so heartless
Until I realized that you just needed mine
That's what I mean by "loving you never helps"
'Cause I just can't decide between loving you or myself
I just pushed away cause I drew a line and you crossed it
Crossing out my exes and ex-ing out all my loses, I know
What it's like to lose somebody you love
And I know what it's like to lose yourself to the drugs
And I know what it's like to have to let go of someone
'Cause they hurt you so bad that you're not the person you was
They won't ever feel what I feel
In a world so fake I just need something that's real
I've been dying to live, the devil's shooting to kill
I just can't help but wonder if you think of me still
See, I've been losing my mind
I've been losing everybody I believed in
Anxiety is suffocating me, I'm barely breathing
I'm coping with the pain
Hoping that the rain just stops cause it reminds me of the day you said you leaving
We always seem to run from those that love us the most
And we never open up because we scared to get close
We running from the past and we numb ourselves hoping that it lasts
'Cause you left me when I needed you most
I said we always seem to run from those that love us the most
And never open up because we scared to get close
We running from the past and we numb ourselves hoping that it lasts, we just hoping that it lasts. #vinnyramone #music #heartfelt #malesingers #rnbsinger #art #phora

White Flowers, Bitter Days: The Petals of my flower were drained of color, pale and indifferent. The were like that to protect the sun spark in the middle. The dash of life and vibrancy I had managed to squirrel away from the world and keep safe from the cold bitter days that life had thrown at me.

You could only see the yellow, the orange when you looked at me. Everyone looks at the brightest part on other people’s images they do the opposite to their own. You could only see the best of me, but the worst in you. You say what you took but not what you gave and what you gave me was invaluable.
You gave me the Sunkissed glowing center of myself and After the cold bitter nights tore you away I wrapped it up tight protected it so that when the day came, and you came back to me there would still be enough of what I was for you to love.-Max

I’m writing these as I post them the other day writing actually helped me ward of a fit of rampant volcanic emotions. This is kinda making me melancholic. All this love talk I think I’m more in love with losing love than keeping it how messed up is that! It’s not scary to have nothing however. Fear of loss is the most convicting.

New Arrival! "I Have Lost My Way" by Gayle Forman.

New from the #1 bestselling author of If I Stay “A beautifully written love song to every young person who has ever moved through fear and found themselves on the other side.” – Jacqueline Woodson, bestselling author of Brown Girl Dreaming

Around the time that Freya loses her voice while recording her debut album, Harun is making plans to run away from everyone he has ever loved, and Nathaniel is arriving in New York City with a backpack, a desperate plan, and nothing left to lose. When a fateful accident draws these three strangers together, their secrets start to unravel as they begin to understand that the way out of their own loss might just lie in help­ing the others out of theirs.
An emotionally cathartic story of losing love, finding love, and dis­covering the person you are meant to be, I Have Lost My Way is best­selling author Gayle Forman at her finest.

To distance, lie, deceit - is easy, anyone can do that. But to truly be... transparent... without boundaries or blockades - that ... Everyone has a journey.

This is a journey of the heart.

It takes a great foolishness to be human.
To care, to feel, to love... But it also takes courage.

To distance, lie, deceit - is easy, anyone can do that.

But to truly be... transparent... without boundaries or blockades - that is difficult.

Lately, I have been extremely stupid. I care too much - No apologies or regrets, that's simply how it is.

Sometimes, you have to let things go, so something better can come along.

Nothing hurts as bad as losing love, nothing. I keep my hand on my heart as a symbol of dedication, as a symbol of hope.

For those of you that have been hurt before, I feel you, I am hurting too.

For those of you that have overcome, my hat goes off to you - soon I will join you.

Create, inspire, change the world, and love will come.

With blessings,

Mikhail Kuznetsov

“Love needs a chaser” she declared, holding a shot between her index, pointer and thumb.
His gaze was wandering off toward the crack in the wood.
“... falling, infatuation, that’s simple. It’s primal. ‘Ey, you’re attractive to me, and I to you’, easy right”
She kinda sucked a breathe in here as if what she was going to say next spilled out bits of her that she no longer felt like losing.
“... love needs a chaser because it’s so Goddamn bitter. You gotta have something sweet to really drink it all down, to help it down into your center. I think that’s noble. It’s brave. People drink beer... ya know, hoping some magical being will fall into their glass without ever leaving what’s comfortable. And that’s fine! I’m okay with those types of people. But, for me, I search for the dark piano keys, the lingering silences, the naked mornings-stark naked, just bare assed vulnerability that only comes with a fucking shot of the harshest, most savage liquor. Give me THAT love. The working class love.”
She cocked the glass back and knocked it on the table. However she didn’t take from her chaser. The pop sat fizzing undisturbed.
And she stared at the Orange peeling wallpaper.
Slightly knowing. Slightly smiling. Slightly in love.

We stretch and grow and push our limits. Always.
But why don’t we ever consider doing it in the realm of love?

Social media. Blogs. Salaries. Vacations. These seem to be the things we give high value to.
But all the material things die when we do.
Yet. Love. Love never does.
We all know this to be true. But the ones that feel it fiercely are those that have loved without an agenda and lost it at a great cost.
Losing love, however the capacity, forces us to learn in ways we wouldn’t typically choose. Regardless of what we lose or what changes, it reminds us of our humanness and the limits life gives us.
But.
It also reminds us how our love never actually it dies. It just expands. And spreads. Like wild fire. Engulfing everything it comes across allowing the space for rebirth.
Make your love expandable and spreadable.
We need more people breaking the human limits of love so we can be reminded of how divine we actually are.
Love without an agenda never apologizes for its fierceness. Instead, it gives others the permission to show up and do the same.

When we lose relationships it's kind of crazy what can happen... sometimes we'll miss people we didn't even really want to be with! In these moments I think the reaction is because (1) losing love actually stimulates the same parts of our minds as where addiction engages... so there's that 😮and (2) We face the unknown. So sometimes the fear in uncertainty makes us go back to what is certain... even if what is certain doesn't feeeeeeel good. Weird, right?! Well the human psyche is brilliant... make no mistakes.
If we're willing to pay attention and step back from our pain in the loss, we will begin to see just how brilliant of a teacher loss is. It provides us with so much information about what we may want more of... and also less of (which is really also teaching us what we want more of). It can also teach us how we could've shown up to life, ourselves and our relationship better... •
The other part that can be challenging to understand is that not everything we lose we're going to want back. Sometimes losing things is a gift. Sometimes when things are taken from us in many ways, we finally feel the weight we were carrying. This can cause guilt ("maybe I didn't love them enough?!"). But what's really happening is you're learning that perhaps you held on longer than you really wanted to?

Life unfolds exactly as it should. There are no mistakes... how do I know that? Because that's how things unfolded. Any other belief would have us needing to change what has happened, and we can't. So the best thing we can do is trust that this is all working for us (it always is... even if we can't see it... yet) and continue to grow and expand. R/p @createthelove

These past five years we’ve lived and lost all for the music. And in two days we tackle our first @vanswarpedtour stage, a festival that has become a sanctuary for the outcasts and weirdos who breathe music just like us. We’ve celebrated many successes in our journey so far, but this one’s maybe our favorite.
——————————
Can’t wait to rip that stage for you all. Let’s make #warped iConic. 🤘

See us in this photo?
You are looking at a couple of girls who lost everything, at one or several pivot points in their lives.... From being in tears and confusion in a job that paid but never satisfied... From losing credibility and clients, humiliated and alone... From juggling too many “yesses” for the sake of other people’s opinions (and dropping priorities along the way).... From losing homes and entire incomes... From losing love, questioning the Universe... ... and so, so much more pain and ashes... ... WE HAVE BROKEN THROUGH and have found BLISS.

LESS of feeling lost,
MORE of who & what we were meant to be.

We are now living amazing lives.
And it’s not even about money, work, travel, although we get to do those, because of our blissful work.

We made BLISS real.
We got coached, found mentors, created our opportunities... and stopped playing the victim.
We made what we love our work.
We said “Yes”, scared.
We allowed the Universe to work... and then we did the work because it became easy. ====== Here is a TRUTH you must realize —

The Universe starts working as soon as you say YES.

Would you like to have the TOOLS, the TIME CREATION, the will and the drive to get to your new possibility?
That JOB you really want?
That PROJECT you want to begin?
That BUSINESS you have been frightened to test?
The BLOG or SOCIAL MEDIA channel you’re delaying because you think it has to be perfect?

Woman, it’s time you said “Yes”. We can Coach and Mentor you to make it possible, make it less scary, and definitely make it happier as you go along 💖
You are ALLOWED to want more for your life... Let us show you how 💖 Viber 0917 493 0722 to APPLY for our (1) June 30 Workshop at @localedition and if you like (2) our July-September @getblisstified Online Masterclass.

If there was unrest or angry/upset feelings between me and someone I loved, I would be totally consumed by it until there was some kind of resolution. I would get locked in super obsessive mental loops. It would be all I could think about. I would be unable to sleep because of the electricity of the anger or the weight of the grief or the intense fear of losing that person in my life. All of those primal alarm bells around safety, getting kicked out of the tribe and losing love (OMG LOSING LOVE!!!) would be turned up to 11. It was extremely uncomfortable and would push on all the childhood feelings of abandonment. It was old pain with new salt in the wound.
Sometimes learnings get integrated into your cells when you're not even looking and you find yourself coping and dealing in a totally new way. That is the best marker of growth I know. When you can meet the same situation that has activated you in the past with new found grace and grounding.
I've had the best opportunities the last couple weeks to truly practice what I preach and witness where I've grown and where my new leaves are still tender. When you facilitate a big group experience, you are initiated and pushed by the work in a different way as a leader. I've been honed, challenged and supported by the Universe in perfect tandem with the Sacred Terrain experience. I can only say thank you to the exquisiteness of the unfolding of life in all the ways, especially when moments of wild joy stand right next to pain. 📷: me #sacredterrain #erinhitstheroad

Life altering moments...they have carved out the woman I am today.... What are you not saying YES to that is holding you back from your greatness? For many years I stood in the shadows watching life pass me by. I dulled my shine for fear of being seen, fear of being pulled back down. I silenced myself, buried my dreams and squashed my potential.
3 years ago I said ENOUGH! I chose to ignore the BS noise in my head and listen to the truth in my heart...I AM WORTHY, I HAVE MANY GIFTS TO SHARE WITH THE WORLD AND IT’S OK TO SHINE WHEN YOU RISE BY LIFTING OTHERS!
I still felt the fear...fear of failure, fear of losing love, fear of falling hard. But I said yes anyway. And today I keep saying YES! Especially when it scares me, because tomorrow I’m a stronger woman when I say YES today.
So say YES! Yes to BEING more, yes to HAVING more and yes to DOING more especially when it’s outside your comfort zone. These are the life altering, defining moments you will cherish in your future. 💖

To think that He orchestrated that moment just leaves me wanting to shout and praise Him even more!! Not only did I get poured into this weekend through amazing worship and practical teaching, I got my sister in Christ back! We are all imperfect people and forgiveness and grace are key, in this journey of faith, because some people just aren’t worth losing!

So eye cling to nothing...
& let everything go..
Back n forth
Ebb n flow..
Eye praise her..
Head to toe
But shall not cling
To anything
Keep in mind
That I know
The difference of losing love
And letting go.
Eye cling to the infinity
Of your entity
And hope to meet you there
Beyond time beyond space
Beyond air.

Sometimes we are afraid to speak up and take a stand for ourselves out of fear of losing those we love. We are afraid of making waves, not being liked, facing rejection. .

Sometimes we are afraid to speak up and take a stand for ourselves out of fear of losing those we love. We are afraid of making waves, not being liked, facing rejection.
.
Consider this: The friends that you lose when you love and respect yourself weren’t your real friends to begin with.
.
Friendship that’s based on anything less than respect is not self-loving. If you lose friends because you said “No”, then consider that you are simply clearing the way to make room for those that can truly respect you.
.
If you have to constantly tell someone the same thing over and over again and they don’t change, understand that they don’t respect you.
.
A true friend will encourage and respect the fact that you are honoring yourself and setting boundaries. A true friend will listen to what you have to say, sincerely take it to heart and do their best to honor your request.
.
If you betray yourself in order to make someone happy, they don’t really have your authentic friendship anyways.
.
Sacrificing your truth, integrity and essence to make someone happy is not love. You don’t need to set yourself on fire to keep others warm.
.
Compassion must begin with you, and you don’t need to feel guilty for saying “No.” You can’t truly be of any good to others if you aren’t being good to yourself. It won’t be sustainable.
.
So take time to respect yourself by deeply feeling what your needs are and be honest with yourself, as well as communicate clearly with those around you.
.
Give up the false expectation that those in your life should be mind-readers and automatically know what you need. This will only make you resentful.
.
Communicating clearly with compassion what works for you and what doesn’t work is an act of self-respect and honoring yourself. Don’t wait until you have reached your limit, do so in the moment of feeling something is not right. When you do so, you not only respect yourself but those around you.
.
Remember, people treat you how you teach them to treat you.
.
So how will you teach people to treat you?
