Most mornings I wake up at 5:30 and can’t get myself back to sleep. But I don’t want to get out of bed either. I don’t want to face the day. I take a piping hot shower and contemplate breakfast, which I generally pass on. I start brushing my teeth and look at myself in the mirror thinking, damn you’re ugly as fuck — the longer I stare the more I see. I shake myself out of it and go back to my room, lay in bed and realize that I just need to get through the day. I throw on some clothes and walk to the train, wishing I had left a few minutes earlier every time I see the train come and go in the distance. On the train, I usually stand, I’m meticulous, I walk through the cars to the last train, knowing that it’s the fastest route to my transfer and eventually, my exit to work. Walk through all the foot traffic literally giving no fucks. And then dread the day I know I’ll have to get through. But every now and then on a morning like today, I’ll wake up at 5:30, hit the gym, vote, eat breakfast, look at myself in the mirror and think, aiight, you ain’t that bad, get to the station and onto the last car on time, realize I’ll never get a 10 thinking I’m a 5, get to work on time, kill it at work and then chill the rest of the night. It’s never going to be perfect. And no one in the world will be able to give you perfection. It’s about finding contentment in yourself and telling yourself that you got this until you actually do. Fuck a hype man, be your own mans. So stop playin yourself. You can tell the whole world to fuck off, but what happens when they actually do? Fuck, right?

Us ho acabo d’explicar en una story, anul·lat l’últim tram especial del dia!! Així que donem per acabada l’etapa d’avui!! Alguns problemes elèctrics han provocat que se’ns parés el cotxe al principi, però ho hem pogut solucionar i molt contents de com ha anat tot, érem conscients de que era una etapa llarga i hem pilotat sempre amb cap. Estem evolucionant a cada dia que passa, així que contents. Ara posem rumb a Arequipa, demà dia de descans!👌✅

I’ve just let you know via stories, the last part of the special test has been cancelled, so today’s stage has come to an end!! What a start we’ve got in the early morning… Some electrical issues made our car to stop, but we managed to get over it and really pleased with the rest of the day, we knew it was a large stage, so we just took it easy. We are learning new things every single day, so really happy with that. Now we head to Arequipa, tomorrow is rest day!👌✅

Delivered to Birmingham at 9am today 💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽. You should have seen me yesterday doing James Bond driving on an empty tank to the courier 😂😂😂. Nerves of steel. I get my bravery from my maternal line, cos those women before me, were badass on an epic scale.
Stopping to buy petrol wasn’t an option. As ridiculous as that sounds. I had close to 24 parcels in my car. Yajichurri and chilled food.
How am I going to tell all these people that I didn’t meet the courier because of petrol. How am I going to return these items home and unwrap to put back in the freezer. Heaven forbid.
Got there with 3 or 4 minutes to closing time 🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️. The Nigerian men at the front desk said at this time, the back office people are on their way home, let me call them for you to come back.
The lady at the back office rolled her eyes at me, when she got there and saw so many boxes. I was like no vex ehn.
There was a lot to wrap and it’s just me that did all this work, you don’t want me calling all these Nigerians at Christmas that their parcels aren’t coming until after Xmas.
There will be chaos in the streets 😂😂😂😂. My people don’t play with their food, ask your colleagues. All their plans, Yajichurri Christmas chicken and turkey.
You want me to start crying. Please o. Scan them and pass them on for transport. Let me be able to sleep this night.
She just shook her head and started laughing 😂 morning.
Courier orders have officially closed for Christmas. Next shipping date is Thursday or Friday for before New Years. So, if you want to put your order in, today is the day to do it as I’m not going market shopping until next Saturday.
Please send me a DM or click on the link in Bio

I was already 💔heartbroken over a break-up that really was devastating. I was really at one of the lowest points in my entire life. I woke up that morning with a “rebound” and felt [email protected](I woke up sick to my stomach in a very dark place). When I got in my car to drive home at 7:30 AM, I’ll never forget looking at all the people in all the cars around me-and pretty much every person was sobbing. I checked my messages and there were a bunch saying the country was under attack. I was volunteering at @kcrw in LA that day and answered phones while people were reaching out to try to understand what was happening. I later found out that I lost one of my friends #AdamWhite in the Twin Towers and it hit home even more. I distinctly remember thinking “this is not Real, what I am seeing is not what they are saying it is.” What breaks my heart more than anything is what it did to this Nation and our world. A little bit of light went out for me during those years, and I became very active politically, protesting the Iraq war and the Bush-Cheney-Military Industrial complex. I knew in my heart that people profiting off Tragedy were what was really dark. ✨Despite the evil that has spread from the wars, aggressions, and corruption that came from that time, I still believe in the good of humanity. I still believe that the Light will continue to grow on this planet✨ I will always pray and send my unending sympathy to those who have suffered from that day. I have to believe that the suffering will ultimately lead our collective family to the doors of the Aquarian Age holding hands. #OneLove

“Gilbert and George said: “But don’t you see? That’s how Bacon is. He is absolutely right to behave as he wants.” Not as he wants. As he has to behave. An artist must be open to the muse. The greater the artist, the more he is open to “cosmic currents.” He has to behave as he does. If he has “the courage to be an artist,” he is committed to behave as the mood possesses him. “That’s the man who booed Princess Margaret!” —the peasantry shrink back from his sulfurous glow.” -

It's our last morning in Tulum on a journey that has begun to restore my soul. Today we head to Miami and then on to Tortola...

This was the first photograph I've taken in almost 2 months, of our "porch" for the past four days. Giving yourself permission & space to rest, heal, grieve, or whatever it is you need to do can be incredibly hard. But it's a skill I'm learning.

Tulum has seen me scream, cry, and break shit. It's also seen me laugh, kiss, swim, and sing Taylor Swift (badly, loudly) with the car windows down like a 16 year old.
🏝
Tulum is more magical than I ever imagined—We ate our weight in ceviche and all the freshness at @hartwoodtulum and @arcatulum. Had chiliquiles in salsa verde for breakfast. And it seems like everyone is always playing my favorite songs—The Cure and the Velvet Underground were on repeat seemingly everywhere. If I could design a beach town, it would be Tulum.
🌊
But there's a seaweed plague here at the moment, so we're leaving the hipster paradise (I mean let's call it what it is...) in search of clearer waters, literally.
⛵️
The BVI was devastated in Hurricane Irma last year, but we're headed there regardless because any time anyone has ever told me to close my eyes and go to my "happy place" it was the waters there...and supporting rebuilding feels appropriate at the moment.
⚡️
I'm so excited to create again, write again, record again, and give you guys everything I've got to help you build a life and business that is capable of supporting you when you can't support yourself when I return home. Because that's been a lifesaver! For people who want to know a bit more about me and my story up to this point (including some hard details about my past), you can listen to my story on my podcast via the link in profile. New episodes should be coming in September...finally!

You can't see him, but the guy standing down at the lake is that handsome husband of mine. Why do I point that out? Because I'm thinking of him today. No matter what I get myself into--professionally, personally, emotionally, or financially--Will is always there to back me up (or back me out). I'm not referencing anything specific at present, but as August rolls on and I become crankier with the looming deadline, I'm consistently reminded of how much this man does for me. He picks Liliana up from my parents' house to save me the drive, affording me an extra hour of work time (while adding that hour on to his already-long day.) He asks his friends to routinely text me while on their camping weekend just because he knows I'm dying for the baby updates and he is driving the car. He regularly does the grocery shopping since he knows I hate it, intentionally buying my fave healthy foods since he knows I'm still trying to lose the baby weight and will crack if Nutella enters this house. He cooks for me constantly, knowing that a box of cereal is about as good as it gets otherwise. He washes the dishes every night, even if it is past midnight, knowing that it will make my morning easier with the baby. He supports me when he reads the world's-worst pitch that I sent out to a reputable publication. He endures episode after episode of Criminal Minds even though I suspect he is tired of it, just because he knows I'm (morbidly) fascinated with the show.⠀


I could go on and on (and kinda already did.) There isn't really another grand point to this post, other than that: I'm thinking of you today, husband of mine. Thank you for everything you do, @moxie82inc.⠀

A car window we were shooting around was smashed in the shape of a butterfly. Butterflies symbolize a change on the horizon and if they are seen repetitively the message is for us to not to avoid a necessary upcoming metamorphosis. They reassure us we have taken/are taking the right path. I found this an interesting example of how life can work in the most mysterious ways ✨💕

When I woke this morning, feeling full of enough positivity & ZIP to cart my jigglier-than-usual bod for a run this morning, I didn't expect to feel so failed so early in the day? Run went well, ideas came flowing as usual - I was content feeling heavier on my run, knowing I'd be back to my most vital soon enough. Then the stresses on the way to work... People running through stop signs, road rage, my cargo going flying in the car, finding out a guy lost his life in Bronte yesterday... By the time I got to work, my spritely mood feels heavy and sinking. Being back at "work", with self-imposed pressure to keep pushing - keep battling - keep trying to figure out how to make a small business work. I open Instagram to see how people received one of my latest designs... Oh goodie - my posts have prompted people to UNfollow me, on both my personal page & business page. Such a silly little number that seems so superficial, but reiterates to the hard-working side of me that I am "irrelevant" - what I do is not wanted. All this outside measurement adding to that feeling of "not good" or "not doing it right". All these sinking thoughts (plus hundreds others) before 10am? But I woke feeling like a positive beast? And as I hear Sia sing the lyrics "sticks and stones will break my bones", a lovely little French man sends me this message. And you know what? Sometimes it helps to know that it's okay to just be a bit shit. Not to pretend the shit doesn't exist or to roll the shit in glitter and pretend it's fundamentally sparkly and doesn't stink - but to just be a bit crap! To be "not enough"... To not know... To feel unsuccessful and even "irrelevant". Well, that's me today... "Imperfect"... "Unsuccessful"... Not good enough... And even "irrelevant"... But above all else I am HOPEFUL that my luck of being surrounded by such incredible people - who somehow have the energy to back me through my own doubts - continues... Even when I am just a bit crap! 💩 💕

The victims were students of Jack Hayward High School, aged 15 and 16.
The Tribune understands one of the victims was Perez Hepburn, 16. He was about to begin his last year of high school today, a relative posted on Facebook. The second victim was 15-year-old Jamall Cooper Jr.
According to police reports, the accident occurred around 4am. The car, carrying six male passengers, hit a utility pole and the pole landed on a fence with downed live wires.
The occupants then got out of the vehicle and the two young men touched a fence with a live electrical wire. They died at the scene, police said.
Education Minister Jeff Lloyd paused during a press conference yesterday to offer condolences and prayers of support to the families of the students.
Jack Hayward High School also posted tributes on its Facebook page.
“Reports are that on Sunday, September 2, shortly after 4am, police were called to Settlers Way and Frobisher Drive where a black Ford Escape vehicle with six male passengers crashed into a utility pole,” the Royal Bahamas Police Force said in a statement.
“The utility pole landed on a fence with downed live wires. The occupants reportedly came out of the vehicle, two of them touching a fence that had a live electrical wire and died at the scene.”
The statement noted the investigation is continuing. Police are also appealing to the public to adhere to traffic laws, slow down, especially on wet roads, and wear seat belts.
When asked if speed was a factor in the accident, Assistant Commissioner of Police Samuel Butler said a full determination has yet to be made. He confirmed the ages of the victims to be 15 and 16 years old.
Friends and relatives expressed shock at the teens’ sudden deaths.

Current status: laying in a hammock in sunny Tahoe post burn trying to process all the amazing things we saw and cool new people we met. This year I still went on many fun photo adventures and have lots more to share here soon, but I also spent a lot of time in the city exploring camps and doing activities, more so than I usually do. I got ice cream from Planned Playahood, did two sound baths—one in front of Mayan Warrior at sunset next to the giant silver orb, did yoga three times, ate steaming bao buns at a dance party, did a workshop to find my power animal, had pizza from a brick pizza oven, got the best massage ever at Hotel California’s spa day, tasted various flavors of homemade Italian limoncello, saw a nighttime light show with 600 drones that looked like beautiful flowing colors in the sky, took lots of people’s yearbook photos at Blackrock Yearbook, found a random phone booth on the playa with a dial tone and called my man who was stuck back in the default world this year, served morning coffee to neighbors on our street, learned some Buddhist chants and sat in a meditation circle, got a spiritual “car wash” from the Shaman Dome which included sage smudging and other healing techniques, got my hair washed at the hair wash camp, saw Tycho at sunrise and miraculously ran into my campmates in a sea of hundreds of people, heard Reverend Billy preach about Larry Harvey at his memorial burn about how important it is to be radical in the world today, and closed out my burn last night on top of the Techno Gekko art car watching what is probably the biggest, most indescribable gathering of people and lights and energy and fire on the planet. It’s all so unlikely, and all so inspiring. I’m glad I went this year.

The third day of motor tour has begun. We are going from Khabarovsk to Blagovecshensk. There was rain in the morning, these conditions are difficult for bikers, but we had to leave to keep up with the schedule.
The tire of the car burst out on the way, we have found the car-service to fix it. Continue our trip. Today we should make around 700 km.

I was very sad to learn the passing of Russ Heath this morning from our mutual friend @aaronsowd, whom I know knew Russ much better than I did. But the short time I did get to know Russ, from my first day at Stan Lee Media ( 19 years ago) he was nothing but welcoming and accepting to my naive but wide eyed enthusiasm to the world of comics. He was a phenomenal artist way ahead of our time, always had the funniest comments, best stories, and the dude was always CHILL.
My fondest memory of Russ was going to lunch with him one afternoon where I drove. My car was a mess, Russ got in and buckled up moving bottles of sodas, burger wrappers, and loose sketchbooks aside. under it all was a perfumed lotion tube( don't judge, I was literally living in my car at the beginning of my comics career, the toothpaste tube was screwed down luckily!), and from parking in the hot Encino sun for hours, it exploded all over his leather jacket. I didn't know what to say, my face went numb. this dude is fucking Russ Heath. Russ simply looked down at the mess and says, " hmm. it's probably good for the leather." and goes to rubs it over the entire jacket. all I can see today is going to lunch with him sitting outdoors and his jacket glistening of lotion in the sun, smelling like Bath & Bodyworks. Almost a decade later, I ran into Russ at a hotel restaurant, I can't remember if it was in Italy or France or?, but I knew there was no way he'd remember me. but I walked by to say say hi anyway and before I could say anything he looks at me and says " Dustin!" I was filled with more joy than you can imagine. I said" Russ!! you remember me!" and he simple opens up his arms, looking down at his jacket and smiles. I was, very happy.
He is the definition of " a titan of the industry" for the amount of work he's done and lived a life most artists can only dream of ( read @aaronsowd 's short bio of him!) . But most of all, he was a genuine human being and was nice to me. Rest in peace buddy. #RussHeath

Miss A made the preliminaries in Fashions on the Field {Fabric @dolcegabbana from @tessutifabrics made by me 🙋🏼‍♀️}, Master J no luck {Shorts @seedheritage, shirt Fred Bracks @myer } - half of his outfit was left in the car after his 2 games of basketball and dash to the track. In the @flemingtonvrc Members Nursery the kids danced and ate and played and played and played. I didn’t even put my heels on {Dress @georgycollection, Hat @fionapowellau sprayed gold this morning, earrings @lovisajewellery } - just stuck to my trusty flats. A great day had by all. Thanks to my support crew, especially @kelstam39 who has done so much for me this week. Until next year... #stakesday #vrc #flemington #springcarnival #day4of4 #thenursery #familyfun

It started with Hunter waking up at 6am. He usually wakes up at 7am so it threw both of us off. I was extra tired and so was he. Then at 830, it was time to drop Hunter off at his new daycare for his first time, without me, for a couple of hours. As soon as the care taker took him, he looked at me and started bawling. It took everything in me to not start crying infront of him. So I quickly said my goodbye, I love you, I'll see you in 2 hours and left the room...where I proceeded to bawl infront of a bunch of parents dropping their kids off. Thankfully the woman who runs the place was there and gave me a big hug and told me it was normal.. and that pretty much every parents cries at their first drop off.

I wasnt expecting it to be AS hard as it was... especially cause it was only 2 hours! But I went back to my car and sat there and cried. I love my baby boy so much. Seeing him cry and then having to walk away from him goes against everything in my nature and instinct of being a mother! But...I got an email from the daycare within 5 minutes and he wasnt crying anymore. He was cuddling his teddy and eating a snack ❤️ He even had a nap there! He did way better then I expected him too and im so happy that he had a good first day. I think this whole daycare thing is going to be harder on me then on him😂

I picked him up and he was happy to see me😀 But pretty soon after he got super cranky because now MAJOR teething and a cold has hit him. He has a non-stop runny nose and SO.MUCH.DROOL. He whined and cried for the rest of the day. Literally. The rest of the day. 20 minute break for a nap in the afternoon (😭) I felt so bad for him... and it was exhausting for me. I finally got him down to bed and its time for this mama to do some serious self-care tonight. Dinner, bath, pjs, tea and some neflix in bed. I dont care how early it is. Some days are just like this! Momlife is the BEST and the hardest thing I've ever done.

Thank you so much to all the sweet ladies reaching out to me after watching my story this morning. I had so many messages and I honestly felt so supported by you all. I love social media for this very reason❤️

Transformation isn’t just physical - it can be emotional, mental and spiritual growth too.

Last week was rough, thinking about how unhappy I am with a lot of things. And my horrible week ultimately ended with me hitting someone’s car. I was so deep in thought about how horrible my days have been that I hit this person - “This isn’t happening.” I broke down and cried as I drove home. And then I cried some more when I got home. I let myself cry it out feeling so bad about my bad days. I allowed myself this one day to cry, to throw a pity party, and to text my closest friends and invite them to my pity party (lol). The next morning, I was still in shock of what happened that I almost started crying again, but I told myself “Angela, don’t start. That was yesterday. Today, you’re going to have a great day. A better day.” And I did! At that moment I realized how powerful my thoughts are. What you think and tell yourself turns into your reality. Then I came across these words “The enemy fights the hardest when he knows God has something great in store for you.”
———
I’ve said it many times before, that I’m no different or better than anyone else. I’m a human being just like the rest of you all. My life isn’t perfect. I have struggles just like everyone else, and I fight hard to be where I’m at. You guys just don’t see that side. But we have a choice to make daily: are you going to stay in this one spot and unpack? Complain, cry, be angry, and sad while producing little to no progress. Or are you going to keep going, putting in your best effort to make better and positive changes?
———
“Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.”
‭‭(James‬ ‭1:2-4‬) ❤️

Your worth is not determined (as a person and/or parent) by how many colored veggies or fruit your kid will eat. Food is fuel and there are many ways you can fuel your body. 💪
-
We will give you many tips and tricks and recipe ideas for how to incorporate more color into your meals. 🌈🌈🌈 But at the end of the day, it's not the most important thing.
-
Did you show your child love, kindness, patience, and joy? How can we do more of THAT? 💛 (And believe me, I struggle with this just like the rest of you. I had a super hard morning getting out of the house to school today... And had to apologize in the car. But hopefully she learns from that too.)

🍅🍠🍊🍋🥦🥒🥑🍆 Colorful rainbow food makes me smile. And I hope that this account is an encouragement to you in every way. Thanks for following along.

Everyday we wake up not knowing what the day will bring and sometimes it’s good to remember not to sweat the small stuff. Denise Marsh got up a week ago to do what she loved to do on a beautiful Sunday morning with her friends. The Weston mom sadly died when a car hit her while cycling on SR 84. Another cyclist, Carlos Rodriguez, also died. Today is Denise’s wake where many of her fellow #cyclists are expected to come out and support her family. The picture below was taken at a makeshift memorial at the site where she died. We’ll bring you the latest on @nbc6 at 6pm.

In my excitement to arrive at The Wedge before sunrise on the biggest day in decades, I accidentally left my bag with all the zoom lenses at home. Captured the entire morning with the only lens I had in my bag, a 100mm. Lost my sandal in a massive wave only to have it wash up half a mile away near the pier right next to a folded dollar bill sticking out of the sand. I returned that evening with my zoom lenses only to find the media coverage made it impossible to park within two miles of The Wedge. Fortunately had my skateboard in the car and navigated through the crowds on the streets to be witness to one of the most epic days I can remember .

A truly great birthday. Not because of any reason you may think, but because this little guy is still around.
Story time:

Saturday evening, Duke started acting strangely, not eating or drinking, wouldn't want to lay down, just stayed standing, didn't want to go up or down stairs and certainly couldn't jump into the car. We scheduled a vet appt asap Sunday morning and our local vet did some x-rays which showed a large mass in his abdomen, like, extremely large. They told us the mass is taking up 85-90% of his abdomen. They didn't have an ultrasound machine there or available until after Labor Day weekend and the vet suggested/we wanted to have one done immediately. We took him to an emergency vet and they placed him on IV and light pain meds waiting for blood work and ultra sound to try to figure out what it was or where it was coming from. We didn’t know if it was maybe his spleen, liver, malignant, benign, if it was removable or inoperable or really anything at that point.
Flash forward four agonizing hours of waiting, we got a still serious but probably best case scenario call. It had originated from his spleen which was good because they were saying it can potentially be removed. Only concern was he was a touch anemic due to internal bleeding from the mass, it had ruptured.
They prepped him for surgery immediately and he was finished a couple of hours later. They removed a mass from Duke that was over seven pounds. More than 10% of his body weight. He required a couple of blood transfusion units to stabilize his blood pressure since it dropped after the blood loss during surgery and bleeding internally. He has taken the transfusions well and they have him on current EKG monitoring to check for a potential heartbeat arrhythmia. We are awaiting results of a biopsy for his tumor, but doctors are extremely positive in their assessments that it is seemingly not aggressive or cancerous. For now he is stable and he may be able to come home tomorrow, with a great many staples in his stomach. We were able to visit him today, and he was hurting but excited to see us.

He’s not out of the woods yet, but he’s one tough man.

Do you tell them you love them? To have a nice day? ☺️
.
Every day in the car 🚘on the way to school I get my girls to repeat a list of affirmations. Today @jeffdingman Was driving them to school, so they came downstairs in the middle of my workout to say goodbye and get a kiss. I paused my work out to do our morning affirmations together since I wouldn’t be in the car with them like usual. 😉
.
I was bullied in school. And my school years were not fun. I had NO self confidence during my school years. I truly believed that I was stupid, and ugly, and worthless. I gauged my worth on other peoples opinions, and what I thought I was supposed to be from what I saw in magazines. 😢
.
I am working hard NOW to instill values in my girls so that they never feel that way. I know I can only control the controllable. But I’ll be damned if I’m not going to try my very best every day to teach them how precious they are, and give them a strong sense of self NOW, before their teen years. 🙌
.
I do not want my girls to go down the same road that I did. And although I can’t control what they choose to do, or what happens in the world around them, I can choose to be the best mom I can be, and teach them what I know now 🙌❤️
.
I am brave, I am strong, I am smart, I am beautiful on the outside but more importantly on the inside. My worth is not determined by what somebody else says or thinks about me. My worth is dependent on what God says about me. And God says, I am blessed and highly favoured. I am very special and important, I am loved. I am wonderful exactly the way that I am, but because I’m a person of excellence, I keep working hard to get better every day. My mommy and daddy and God love me so much and they are so proud of me. Today is going to be a great day. I am a kind person, but I don’t take any crap. I will make a difference in the world. 💗

Actually if I’m going to be honest the past few weeks have sent me seriously loopy. I’ve been blaming the full moon, although I can’t seem to find her tonight. 🧐🌚 .
I woke up today and quite frankly didn’t want to parent, I wanted someone to parent me, hug me and tell me it will all be ok, but we all know that’s not going to happen. After dropping the big boys off to school I dared to stop and do something for myself and get my morning coffee. .
Beau’s going through that super fun stage of refusing to sit in his car seat. Trying to get a 16 kilo extremely head strong toddler’s body strapped in is no easy feat. The other day I had to sit on the side of the road for 40 minutes, I just couldn’t strap him in. Today it was only 20 minutes🤪. He was so hysterical, throwing one of his exorcist style tantrums, I reached back to pick something off the floor for him not realising my car was in drive. My car crossed the other side of the road and slammed into a parked car 🤦🏻‍♀️ We were all thankfully fine, the other car is not. I was so mortified. The amount of ‘what if’s’ that ran through my mind all day sent my anxiety into overdrive. #mumguilt 😣 .
I really try and remind myself on a daily basis how lucky I am and that there’s others out there doing it far tougher than me, but sometimes this motherhood gig can become too much, and that’s ok, we’re only human after all! A good old ugly cry 😭, 🍷and a big slab of 🧀 always seems to help.
The one positive thing is thankfully I didn’t slam into the $200k+ Tesla that was parked right next to the car I hit 🤦🏻‍♀️ #Idbedivorced #bringonMothersDay #Ineedsomepampering 💆🏻‍♀️ #tomorrowisanewday

It’s a coffee by the windowsill, watching the sun come up.
It’s singing loudly in the car.
Shopping for jewellery.
Walking barefoot through a stream.
Lying in the sun on a piece of fancy fabric with some apricots and peaches ~ a mid morning snack.
It’s swimming naked on a lonely beach just because.
It’s changing the furniture around, then moving it back again.
Dancing to a favourite song in the kitchen.
A long hot bath, burning every candle you own.
It’s belly laughing at an old memory you stored away.
It’s painting a piece of art but not finishing it.
Baking a dessert but not eating it.
Pouring an expensive glass of wine and savouring it.
It’s asking yourself those tricky questions, the ones that sometimes make you cry.
It’s opening up all the windows and forgetting to shut them as an evening storm rolls in because the music is turned up too loud, and you have had a glass of wine, and your tears have distracted you from the outside world.
Your skin is a little sunburnt from earlier but squeaky clean from the long hot bath you have taken. You realise suddenly that you are hungry and remember that dessert you baked, but it’s burnt. You decide to pour another glass of wine instead and watch the rain. You remember how you have forgot to water your plants this week, so you drag them all outside in a hurry.
You sigh as you rush back inside soaking and take off your wet clothes, you dry your hair and stare at yourself in the mirror. You see her. Your wilder self staring back at you. You look away and hop into some beautiful silky night ware. You get out your paper and pen and begin to write a letter to the man of your dreams. The beautiful man you met just a week ago. You write two pages and feel silly so you throw it in the bin. You turn off all the lights, hop into bed and fall asleep thinking about him.

Something I wrote today, about a time in May a few years back.
The leaves were falling from the trees and I was falling in love with you @mitch.gobel

I was working my first corporate job as the first e-commerce manager for Spaulding Sports. I was elated to be in Manhattan to represent the company at a trade show at the Javitz center. I was also celebrating my anniversary with my then partner, so she came too. We drove and had a lovely hotel. We saw a broadway show and ate a nice dinner. The next morning I got up and left for the trade show. I walked outside and tried to board a bus and was told the bus couldn’t take me because a plane had just hit one of the towers. Everyone was confused bc no one had a clue what that meant. We all pictured a little prop plane that brushed the building. I went to Starbucks and then back to my hotel to call my office. All I could think was how they were going to be mad at me. I needed to find a way to the trade show. I got into the room and turned on the tv and watched the second tower get hit. I stood there in shock. Then the panic kicked in. We had to get the fuck out of nyc. All hell broke loose around me. We got our car and tried to make our escape. We took a Woman with us from Ohio who had no way out. We drove for 12 hours trying to get off the island of Manhattan while the world collapsed around us, listening to the radio and hearing about more planes crashing. There was no cell service for 15 hours so everyone - my parents, my work - were all terrified I was dead. I relive this trauma every 9/11 and every time I board a plane. That day, a few evil men completely changed the world. Everything is totally different in a post 9/11 world. If a few evil men can have such an impact...imagine what a few million powerful and loving women can do to change the world! ——-

I have an😇, don’t we all and 6 days ago he left, I mean the 😇 part and I was left with a monster. My husband went away 🤦‍♀️and I was often a blubbering mess when he ☎️ as I couldn’t physically and emotionally deal with it!
I put it down to teething or illness so I had to put on my most patient side (which I’m not great at) but I’ve learnt over the past two years!!😁
The tantrums and bulliness from a 1 year 362 day old toddler (yes shy of two!)😥😩
Everything from what food was provided, nappy changes, bath time, change of clothes, playing with toys that didn’t cooperate... it was all a nightmare!! I found myself becoming a crazy lady counting down the hours until I had do bath, dinner and brushing teeth!!
Going out with friends... I warned you all but he would run and just give that smart ass look and if you tried to stop him from running too far Croc dundee had to step in!
Nappy changing, brushing teeth, getting into the car seat, changing clothes 😱😫!!How can a 1 year 362 day old toddler be so bloody strong?? I lift 🏋️‍♀️ ,I consider myself to be 💪🏻 but I found myself working up a sweat most of the time. It’s winter and I’m outside bloody sweating! I thought at times I was living with a moody flatmate and had to watch what I did or said!
Yesterday morning out in public, what a nightmare... He passed out in the 🚗 at 11am (earlier then the midday sleep) and woke at 3pm. I’m not sure what happened during that sleep but the 🧚🏻‍♀️ had been and returned my gentle kind little darling. WTF.. how can it change so quickly?? 🤔All my 👯‍♀️ said hang in there it will end.. thankfully only 6 days. Oh and in all that time my husband has been away and little mate decides to return to his normal self the night before Dad comes home. 🙏 for facetime as Dad wouldn’t have seen the tantrums and thought Mum was a complete nutcase! It’s almost 24hrs since our last meltdown, please be kind to me today MONDAY! x 🌻
How many of you have been through this? It’s the toughest job out there, but I wouldn’t change it for the world!! 💙

Instead, I took a step back. Thinking of all that #TheUntetheredSoul (heyyyy, book club!! 👋🏼👋🏼👋🏼) is teaching me... I knew I had the option to let this event flow through me. I didn’t need to hold it. Focus on it. Get lost in it. Nope. Not today. Instead, I took a few minutes of “damn, this sucks” and moved TF on. Remember, you do NOT have to let negative experiences, traumas, unexpected-not-to-plan happenings completely unhinge you. You can be aware that it happened + let it float on by.

Let me ask you a few questions:⠀
.⠀
Have you ever gotten into your car after a long day at work, and even though you promised yourself you’d hit the gym, you head straight home for the couch instead?⠀
.⠀
Have you ever been unable to stop hitting the Snooze button every morning (instead of the gym)?⠀
.⠀
Have you ever been secretly afraid that you just don’t have what it takes to really change your body and life?⠀
.⠀
Have you ever struggled so much to build a better body and life that you wondered if it’s really worth it?⠀
.⠀
If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, I understand. I’ve been there myself.⠀

Years ago, I was stuck in a rut in the gym, I was making minimum payments on tens of thousands of dollars of credit card debt, and I had no idea where I should go in my life, let alone how to get there.⠀

Today, I’m a “super-fit” bestselling author with over one million books sold, and the owner and co-founder of several 7- and 8-figure businesses.⠀

(And perhaps more importantly, I also found a unicorn for a wife who has given me two kids who are kinda the coolest.)⠀

I read scores of books, worked thousands of hours, and overcame more setbacks than I can count. In other words, I did the hard stuff that most people don’t want to do, and I’m ready to share the biggest lessons I’ve learned along the way.⠀

That’s why I wrote this new book: to help you fix the biggest things that are holding you back from doing and achieving the things you care most about.⠀

'Gonna be late. Can u plz stay with Beth for like fifteen mnts after school? I'll have to rush him to piano class afterwards. Thank youuu.' Niall locks his phone after reciving the text. He looks up at the kids who's doing the work he's assigned to them while bickering to each other. The bell rings shortly after and immediately kids start shoving all the work Niall knows that they didn't even touch in their bags. "Make sure you finish all of them by tomorrow, guys. I'm going to check them." He warns. After he has make sure every kids have left with their parents, he and Beth walks to the playgroud. "How's your piano lesson going, buddy?" He asks. "Good!" Beth grins. "I like piano." He says. "Me too." Niall laughs. "We can play together now. I'm getting really good." Beth says. "By the way," He gulps. Niall turns to him humming. "Well," Beth starts. "My birthday is coming up in a week." He says. "No way! Mine's around the corner too." Niall laughs nudging him. "So you can definitely stay over and celebrate with me! We can have it on the same day." Beth cheers. "I don't know," He sighs. "I'll have to ask your mum-" "She'll definitely agree. She can't stay up late alone!" Beth panics. Niall scrunches his eyebrows in confussion. "Yeah, okay. I'll stay over and we can celebrate our birthdays together." Niall says. "Why can't she stay up late?" He asks further. Beth is about to answer before quick footsteps approach them. "Thank god," Niall hears y/n groans. "Come on, Beth. We don't want to be late." Y/n holds out her hand for him to hold, and he did. Y/n looks over to Niall standing by the swings looking back to her, and there are so many things they want to say to each other. Instead, she reaches out to his hand nodding. "Thank you." She says before peking his cheek, showing that at least even though she ran off from him this morning, she still really do care about him. "Uhm," Niall jogs to where she parks her car before she has the chance to leave. "Coffee?" "Maybe not today. I have to get groceries while Beth's in class." She says. "Oh," Niall backs away. "Okay" He nods. "I'll call you tonight" Y/n say softly smiling. He nods, then they left

I can't even begin to express how I feel after spending almost 4 days in Nashville for the Beachbody Coach Summit! I purchased my ticket the day it went on sale last year. I had not figured out how I was going...I was going to work those details out later. As it became closer for me to go, I almost had to back out. I'm so glad I had arrangements worked out so I could still attend.

I was full of mixed emotions when I went. This was something totally out of my element. I had anxiety leaving my kids for the first time, I drove 6 1/2 hours alone in the car, went to a city I have never been to before as well as meeting so many other friends/coaches for the first time in person! I even stayed with people I had never met.
I am so glad things worked out the way they did. I went to training sessions, had a workout with Chalene Johnson and did a Superworkout (given by all of the celebrity trainers)with 25,000+ coaches on the streets of Nashville! At 6am on a Saturday morning! It was an experience like no other. I also saw some amazing transformation stories and these were people who never thought they could change. You can change! This company keeps creating new ways to end the trend of obesity in this world. It's unreal on how high those numbers are today. If I can help just one person reach their goals, then I've it's worth it. It's my passion to help people!

Feelin' so good changed the color to my phone
Orange kool-aid go good with patron
A naw hell naw boy still my ring tones
Free car wash had to clean up the Dodge
Get back when I can just playin' my part
Church folk had a fish fry
Mustard, hot sauce, light bread, and french fries
Love for the big guy
Hit the park, boys showin' off their hops
Nappy Roots on the radio and you know it bops
Last night I hit the pick tree bought some Air Force ones
Four tall tees man I'm lovin' bein' a G

Got this new outfit ain't even out in the States
So if they ain't speakin' to soon but this is a hell of a day

-

So, on our way back from the new forest on Monday afternoon my car started smoking and the engine was overheating so I had to quickly pull over. It was not drivable so my car broke down in the middle of the new forest (brilliant). I then called my breakdown cover people and managed to get them to come pick us up and put my car on the back of the truck to be taken to the garage so it could be fixed the next morning...as this whole process took just over 4 hours so couldn't have been fixed that day as it was too late.
-

So...left it outside the garage over night hoping it could be fixed the next day so I could get my little fiat back on the road! Got a call the next morning..."Hi Mollie...erm....your car has been broken into and the left passenger window has been totally smashed in and there's glass everywhere".....me: "😰🤧😢😩😡crying". They took my purse and handbag that I stupidly left on the floor in the front, total twat I know but I was so drained from the evening before I wasn't thinking. -

My purse was found by security the next day in cascades in Portsmouth outside a shop with practically everything taken out of it, all my cards, receipts, change and my costa points card......fuming. So they'd tried to have a spend up with my money....luckily I cancelled the cards before they got a chance, suckersssssss. -

Cut a long story short....over the last two months my car has cost me over £650 and to top it off I have an awful cold and cough which makes things so much better and a funeral to attend today. -

I am truly at the end of my tether BUT after I cried my eyes out all week......here is my 'what else you got to throw at me bitch!!??' face.....today I feel sassier, stronger and have learnt many lessons😂 don't know what I would have done without the help of my parents and my cousin for fixing it. My car should be back on the road early next week (fingers crossed). -
And I'm still healthy, safe and my mothers daughter so let's carry on with life shall we molls 😜👊🏼 #sassy #shitweek #carryon #bitchface #tryme #independentwoman #stress #fuckitall #stillbreathing

This dude was standing in the parking lot next to his car with two flat tires. He asked if I could help him out because he was having a crappy day and already late for work and needed a ride. Over that 5 minute ride he asked about my day and I told him I had just come from church and we started talking about Via. Honestly who knows what he was thinking but the point is Jesus gave me a random unexpected opportunity today to share with a complete stranger what my church is all about after I LITERALLY just prayed this morning that He would start using me as imperfect as I am. So ya who knows what he took away from that but I still thought it was pretty cool. .
.
Anyways I love Rori and I love Via and I love all the new gold hearted friends I have made here this place is freakin INCREDIBLE so y’all should seriously come check it out sometime, you can sit with us😋💕

If you've been following along our #GrossKittyAdventures hashtag, you know we've been taking care of three stray kittens who've been living under our house for the past few months. We keep the porch stocked with water and food, and every day, they pop their heads up around 4pm for treats, that we feed them one by one. We even set up balls and string and other toys on our porch for them to play with. This is Shadow. He was my favorite, and the most playful of all. He loved when my son and @davidgrosstv would 'catfish' him with one of my old bracelets tied to a string. I would watch through the window laughing as he jumped and swatted at it. He brought us all so much joy. And like clockwork, he would awake us every morning at 5am, swatting the rubber ball on our porch, pounding it into the window and jumping around in a frenzy. But I was never mad about it. David and I would peek out and watch him, talking about how we couldn't wait till we had built enough trust to bring him and the two tabbies inside. It was a wonderful way to start the day. I wanted to give them everything they needed so they wouldn't have to venture out from our property, but every night I still went to sleep worrying if they were safe. Today, it kills me to say those fears came true when we found Shadow had been hit by a car on our street. I guess his sense of adventure lured him away. One time, we watched him climb a wooden beam all the way up to nearly the roof of our house. He was unstoppable. We joked that he was like the black panther. He was special and I loved him so much. I really loved him and I can't believe I'll never see him again. I can't believe my Shadow is gone. But I want to commemorate him here with all the happiness he brought us, and I hope we brought him some too. RIP Shadow. I hope wherever you are, you're roaming free and happy. I'll miss you forever.

Then - after she got on the school bus ON HER OWN, but completely fine, I got straight in my car and drove to my friend’s house - whose kids were getting on the same bus, next stop off - so I could spy on her to make sure she was okay. Yes I have been THAT crazy person today. I swear I was sane before kids. Anyhow I clearly needn’t have worried, as you can tell from the photos she was cool as a cucumber, waving at me like the queen (second photo). Polar opposite to her mama.

⭐️I visualized what it would be like to wake up without my bones shaking and my head swimming in fear. I imagined a day where I would wake up happy and free instead of tearful. I could spring out of bed. I could greet the day with joy. We could seize the morning and take our dog to the beach. It’s a hour away, but who cares. We could open the windows and blast oldies. I could put my toes in the sand and listen to the waves while we throw the ball for Emma-until her legs slow to a trot, and her eyes get heavy.
#
⭐️Today was that day. I packed a cooler and blankets, and headed to the beach with my little family. I started getting carsick on the windy backroads, so we pulled over and I DROVE. My anxiety wasn’t gone, but it was only a dull hum. We arrived. I parked the car. We put our feet in the cool sand and watched our pup have a banner day. To say I’m grateful doesn’t quite cut it. After months (er, many years if we’re honest) of battling with EXTREME crippling anxiety, this feels like a powerful win. This feels like living. This feels like hope. Grateful for meds, grateful for unwavering support from Peter, grateful for the honesty and love I’ve shared with complete strangers and friends on the internet going through similar struggles—grateful for my tenacity and stubbornness, because it helps me never ever give up. Let’s keep talking mental health, because it’s so very important. 👉🏻 #soletstalkmentalhealth

A bit of a different #TransformationTuesday post today. 🏃‍♂️🏃‍♀️ Exactly 5 years ago today, as I was getting up for work my hubby told me that he wasn't feeling right - I looked at him and immediately I knew something was wrong. I immediately told him to get in the car & rushed him the hospital. They took him in immediately & told us he was having a heart attack before air lifting him over to another hospital. Needless to say; that day was one of the scariest days of my life. I am forever thankful to all the doctors & nurses that took care of him that da!. Here we are 5 years later (both turning 38 next month) - he has quit smoking, changed his diet, hikes and is currently in the process of training for his 9th 5k! We spend our weekends outdoors exploring new spots & end our Sunday's meal prepping healthy foods for the week ahead! I am so proud of all the positive changes he has made & so thankful for all his love & support every single day! #RunnersCommunity #instarunners #WomensRunningCommunity

It’s probably for the best that I don’t say exactly how I’m feeling after the first day in Portugal. But you can pretty much work it out for yourselves, I hope. In case you haven’t seen the times or the footage, we got two punctures on consecutive stages in the second loop this afternoon. I’ve no idea where I got them or how I picked them up. No idea at all.

To be honest, I thought our rally was over at the end of the Ponte de Lima stage (the final gravel stage of the day). We had a total of 120km of road section to do and still two superspecials, and three working tyres. So we did the two short stages with the left-rear on the rim, as you may have seen, and then we were able to make it back. If you’d told me at the end of Ponte de Lima that we’d be able to pull that off, I wouldn’t have believed you.

So we’re still in. But it’s frustrating, with so many others having issues; you’d like to think that once in a while you’d get a clean day but the last three rallies really haven’t gone my way.
The frustration is compounded, in a way, by the fact that I was really, really enjoying driving the car today. I was able to have a good rhythm, and good pace; we were leading the rally, after all. I would say it’s probably the first time I’ve felt as comfortable as this in the Citroen C3 WRC.

That’s really positive, I know, and yes, we’re still there, but with the slow runs through the superspecial we dropped a fair few positions so I think we’ll end up being second on the road tomorrow, which is far from ideal. The first two stages of the morning in particular are going to clean quite a lot, I’d say, so it could be a long day ahead. We’ll just keep trying; there was plenty of chaos today and maybe a bit more tomorrow could give us a break.

Thanks, as always, for your support,

There's Your Diamond In The Rough. 🎗💭
⏳ Today February 18th Of LAST YEAR 2017....Mia The Great Shaved Her Head! To Say I Am Proud Of Her Is Putting It Lightly. The Amount Of Courage It Took For My Little 8 Year Old Child To Take Such A Huge Leap Is Unfathomable. We Held On To Her Hair As Long As We Could. The Morning Of This Day She Was Hysterical Because Of The Knots In Her Hair And The Fear She Had Of Brushing All Her Hair Out Little By Little. Then Something Washed Over Her. A Calmnes Feeling About The Situation And Then God Sent Her Some Humor. Out Of No Where She Said "Let's Go Shave My Head! Right Now!" I Never Saw Her Get Dressed So Fast In My Life! We Quickly Hoped In The Car And Went. I Felt That If We Waited Too Long We Might Miss Our Chance Of Her Feeling Okay Woth It Happening. Big Paul Took Her For Ice Cream To Calm Her Down. The Woman That Cut Mia's Hair Was Meant To Do It. She Appologised As Much As She Could And Not A Single Dry Eye Clyld Be Found In The Whole Hair Salon. The Hug She Gave Mia Afterwards Is Etched Into My Memory Forever Wothout Even Looking At This Picture. The Comfort She Gave Mia In That Moment Was Priceless. She was Smiling. Mia Was Actually Able To Smile Even After Cancer Robbed Yet Another Thing From Her. How That Is Possible Is Only By The Grace Of GOD. My Baby Is A Walking Miracle And Everyday Is A Blessing With Her. A Year Later Her Hair Is Growing Back Like Crazy But She Insists On Keeping It Short For Now. She Fully Grasped The Fact .. "A Princess Is Still A Princess Even If She Is Bald" 💪🏽🌹👑

I haven't quite been able to articulate or write these words out appropriately until I was in the right head space. This morning it 100% came to me, during my run (like words always do).
••
As a runner, I set out freely almost every single day to go for my run. I would say I'm on high alert 90-95% of the time. Whether its a car on the road, an asshole whistling from their car, a car driving slowly, somebody stopping me to ask for something, or yelling from their car. It does boggle my mind that this still happens.
••
I've never been a night runner or an early morning runner when it's still dark. It's not that I don't want to - it's just that it actually scares the shit out of me to run in the dark.
••
Do I fear things?? Absolutely. Do I fear more than the average person? Probably. My anxiety runs high when it comes to running because you are alone and sometimes you are on quiet roads, or desolate places, and I do tend to create crazy scenarios in my mind.
••
Does it stop me from running? Hell no!! Does it make me nervous and alert of my surroundings at all times. YES.
••
When I first heard about Mollie Tibbets - I followed the story closely. Hoping for such a different outcome. Scared for her. Holding onto any shred of hope as the weeks passed.
••
She went FOR A RUN. Something she loves to do. Something she does everyday. Something that gives her peace of mind. Something that ANY runner can relate to - that "runners high."
••
Mollie was robbed of so many miles. She doesn't get to run anymore. She was selfishly taken from this earth. My heart breaks for her friends and family.
••
Would I be lying if I said my fear wasn't heightened. YES. But today I realized I'm so fucking done with it. I cannot live in fear. WE AS RUNNERS cannot live in fear. We can run as smart as possible - and be on alert - but we can't live in this fear.
••
Because I can still run. I can still log miles. I have the ability to enjoy running. And Mollie does not.
••
So I will keep running. And I will keep trying to run in the dark - and push past my fears. And I will do everything I can to support this movement. Whether that’s creating forums for women to find other runners (cont. in comments)

It might only be Tuesday but it’s been the best day... I’m in a good mood, so don’t come at me with any BS rest of the day! Haha
.
Here’s the deal... I woke up in an off mood, but it’s been like this daily. I only take my heavy pain pills at night to get better rest but they give me crazy lifelike dreams that take me a bit to recover from. I’ll wake up crying, sweating, or even times in a panic. It hits my #anxiety to the point I have to question reality, what it meant ect.
.
But today I decided im over it, it was going to be a good day, & wouldn’t let it effect me, as much as I wanted to lay there, I legit said ok - it’s enough 5-4-3-2-1 get up. (Well roll out of bed basically lol)
.
So I’m celebrating all the small wins once again... I was physically able to make my bed for the first time in almost almost 4 weeks since my surgery, my swelling is going down & I started to see my real abs I worked so hard for years to peek through. My fav salad spot opened by my house, & a bestie called randomly free to have lunch... so I cleaned up my bandages ASAP, got dressed, got on makeup, & had the best time just catching up with my girl. I took a mental health and self care day, as I got a car wash, picked up new hair products for me and my #curlygirls, then we get to celebrate my sons new job, at a fav store that I get to use a discount at 😝
.
Each day we have a decision to make, and we can choose to make it what we want!
.
Tonight I’m switching my meds, I’m goin to bed early, I’m going to get back on my early morning routine, & continue to heal one day at a time, while remembering the goals and dreams my team and I have worked so hard for, and finish planning this special weekend.
.
I can’t workout my body, but there is still so much work inside & nutrition wise that I can do to make each day its best, until I can.
.

I live this blessed life because I refused to give up, to be defeated, and knew it was meant for more. My New Years push might have come to a slow start - but I’m coming for ya bishessssss, and can’t wait for y’all to join me as we go into the year ahead! .
Hope your day was amazing, and if not, decide now that you will enjoy the rest of what left! 😘

Years ago, when I was on my desperate search for a husband😂, every time I looked at the clock it said 9:11. I always wondered what the significance of that was, but I was convinced those numbers meant something. In my mind 9/11 was going to be the day I met the LOML. I was also obsessed with Halloween. Every year when 9/11 and 10/31 rolled around it never happened. Then one day in July, I was running late to pick up my friend @quickwittedqt81. We were both rotating in West Philly at the Medical Examiners and Children’s hospital, so we car pooled together. I ran in Wawa for a sec to grab a coffee and as I prepared my coffee an amazing man (in a uniform) came right next to me to fix his coffee. The next thing I knew I was out front of Wawa talking to this dude. Did I call Kristy and tell her I was gonna be late picking her up?? Hell no!!🤣 I totally had stars in my eyes and I couldn’t even think! An hour later I got in my car to head to school. I sat down in the driver’s seat and for a minute trying to process what just happened! I had that feeling of “butterflies” when you fall in love. He was so special and I knew he was the one. It was not 9/11 it was 7/10, but that uniform he was wearing was one of a firefighter. A firefighter who’s birthday is on Halloween! Coincidence? I think not!
I’m a sucker for love stories and this is mine. Ten years later taking photos like this warms my heart. Almost every shift, we visit daddy at the firehouse, even if it’s just for a second to say hi. This is how I like to think of him, playing with my kids in the garage or sitting around the kitchen table with the guys drinking coffee. But I know that this job is different. Everyday I know when he leaves in the morning he might not come home.
9/11/2001 was a beautiful, sunny morning. The morning started just like every other. Family kissed their firefighters goodbye, not knowing they would never see them again. If you see a firefighter today or any day while getting coffee, thank them for being awesome and for putting their life at risk for you. Never forget? Fire families never do, and you shouldn’t either. 🚒💙

[Welcome to Day 18 of the Art of Goal Achieving Challenge!] Today is all about building a new self-image. 👤🏆 While your physical body and appearance are important, it’s the self-image that’s locked in your subconscious mind that really counts. For this is the image that determines your success or failure in life.

While, the real you is perfect, boundless, and is always looking for ways to expand, the self-image in your mind is based on false and limited information that sets the boundaries for every area of your life.

So if you see yourself as shy, not good enough, or unlovable, you will feel and act accordingly. And that will create results in your outer world that reflect the image you have in your mind. 💭

Until we change on the inside (create a new self-image), we will continue to be stuck in the same situations.
We will put weight on, take it off, and then put it back on.

We will get into a loving relationship, sabotage it, end the relationship, and then do it all over again.

We’ll start earning more money, then stop doing the new thing we are doing, and go back to earning the amount we’ve always earned. 📅 Today, write out a self-image of yourself that you would like to have, today, and going forward. How do you want to dress? How would you respond to challenges? What kind of car do would you drive? What is the first thing you would do in the morning and the last thing in the evening as this person? Write this all out, and read it DAILY! You will become this person slowly but surely...💎 Comment with DONE when you have completed this exercise.
I’ll see YOU for day 19! #BobProctor #ArtofGoals

jason, every day i get to spend with you is the best day of my life. in you i have found a best friend, lover & the best life partner i could have ever asked for. you’re the goofiest person i know but i wouldn’t trade you singing prince songs to me in the car or refusing to let me get out of bed in the morning for anything. i live for the days i get to spend snuggled up in bed with you talking about nothing & watching every nature documentary netflix has to offer. i love our breakfast dates and nights when we just eat leftovers in bed. i love waking up to you pulling me closer and the dozens of kisses on the cheek that always follow. i will never get tired of those. but more than than all of that, i love your passion. you never cease to amaze me with your drive for the things you love & watching you make your dreams come true makes me happier than you will ever know. i know i tell you all the time but i am so proud of you. thank you for pushing me to be the best version of me that i can, and cheering me on even when i don’t believe in myself. in the last year we have grown so much as individuals and as a couple, and i know that as long as we’re together we are unstoppable. i will never understand what i did to deserve you but i will never take you or the love we share for granted. you are my whole heart & no amount of years spent with you could ever be enough to show you how much you mean to me, but i will spend the rest of my life trying to do just that. so here’s to one year down & to all the ones ahead. i love you, sweet boy, happy anniversary ❤️ (huge thank you to @mplsvisuals for snapping the most perfect photos of us today)

I lost my babies in Sacramento late August with my car broken into. I have scoured Sac Craigslist and EBay every day since hoping something would pop up.
Last night I found my Jazzmaster had been listed by a pawn shop at 7pm. It’s a one of a kind with many mods I had done to it. Serial number also listed and matched. No question my guitar! The bidding had started.
I immediately called the police. They said I’d have to call Property crimes department the next morning at 9am. F’ that! I thought... I’m driving to Sacramento all night and showing up at the store. I got in my car with a whole chicken, and apple, and two energy drinks. I brought my empty Fender Jazzmaster case with me, manifesting its return. I drove from 10:30pm- 4:30am with only a stop for gas, arriving a few miles from the shop. I slept in my car from 5-7am, got breakfast and made my way to the shop while calling police. I brought all evidence, photos, serial numbers. We found it!
The news gets better- it was brought in along with my Samick SG and mono case. The Samick was sold, but they have tracking on it. They also have the name of the person who brought everything in and will start investigating the suspect.
So, looks very likely I’m actually getting my babies back!! I can’t believe it. Thank you to these officers for coming out and assisting me. Hoping we’ll find Aaron Haggerty’s backpack and tools along this ride.
I am sooooo grateful, I’m going to cry!! 💓🙏🏽❤️🙏🏽💓🙏🏽❤️ #SacramentoPoliceDepartment

Story nail challenge 24 "The hearts of every girl has a princess dream"
Chapter 1
Michelle took a last look in the mirror and with a smile she was out of the door.
Her everyday was very simple.
Work, College, Home, Eat, Sleep, Repeat... Day in day out she had to go to her work despite how much she hated it... but was paying the bills and her college fees so was bringing her a step closer to fulfil her dreams... so she thought!
In the bus, squeezed between the same faces she would see every day, she spotted the sweet old lady she helped once to escape from the dirty hands of a drunk man who's intentions were to get his hands on her purse.
"Good morning Mrs Stanley" said Michelle and the old lady gave her the sweetest smile she had... "Morning my lovely girl, you're looking very pretty today" Michelle felt her face turning pink like her top, as all men in the crowded bus turned to see her...
"Pink is very much your colour" said Mrs Stanley and giggling she carried on...
"How's your exams going my dear?"
Michelle was at her finals to become a nurse... her dream was to be able to help people. She wasn't like her friends, who would only try to fit in their invisible crown and enjoy their youthful life as a princess... Tania, her oldest sister always told her "The hearts of every girl has a princess dream" try to make yours come true... The girls grew up in a foster family. Their parents sadly passed in a car accident... Michelle's dream was to become a nurse so to help people survive, to give them the chance her parents didn't have... 😔.
Timothy couldn't take his eyes off her...
Every day for years now they had the same date in the bus every morning.
Observing her every move, admiring her natural beauty, trying to catch a glimpse from her... Which sadly never happened.
She didn't even know he existed... 😔.
Mrs Stanley was ready to get off the bus... She turned and with her sweet smile said to Michelle... "My darling girl, you’re just as gorgeous as a butterfly, BUT you need to stop and smell the roses once in a while… you never know what you might miss dear!" turned to Timothy winked and was off the bus...

.
Each day you write or do an activity. Writing things down really makes you think at a deeper level about what things bring you happiness, what your picture perfect morning looks like, what areas of your life are you committed and disciplined (and what needs more attention), etc. ❤️.
.
The purpose of #mindfulosophy is to make you SLOW DOWN and observe your thoughts. I’m always telling my husband he doesn’t have to be go go go all the time. To simply be still is so good for the mind and body. Allowing your brain to rest from the distractions of work and electronics and a multi-tasking agenda is so beneficial to your overall wellbeing. So if you feel anxious or stressed, be still. Observe. Don’t compare. Just BE. 🧘🏻‍♀️.
.
Have you ever tried this? You don’t need a vacation to do it. You don’t need a serene place. You just need a quiet place. Maybe it’s your car today before you go inside your house .... maybe it’s during naptime on your back patio. Maybe it’s wherever you are right now. 🤔.

Today on the Story: went to one of the coolest markets of my whole life this morning in Montevideo, then had an awesome adventure surprise: RENTING A CAR! Today I drove from Montevideo to Punta del Este with @hertzuruguay , stopping at a bunch of beautiful places along the way. Tomorrow I’ll be doing a trip up the beautiful Atlantic coast and I can’t wait! I truly think it’s the best way to truly see this country, which has been impressing me more and not every day. Check my stories to see why!

Thank you for all the texts, calls, posts, snaps, insta story features, FaceTimes and FACE-to-FACE time.

As I sat in my car today, with vision tear-filled & blurry from sheer thankfulness, I couldn’t help but praise God for those I am lucky enough to call friend! Each of you have made my now twenty-four years on this earth so very worth it! 🎂💫 PEACE OUT jordan year, let’s do this 24!!!

Today, a wonderful friend and exhausted momma reminded me of the number one rule of raising kids: IT TAKES A VILLAGE!
I am often one to not heed my own advice. I’m thankful for this friend for reminding me today that it’s okay to ask for help. Her six-year old precious twins are doing the same karate camp as Manning. They are all buddies and since Stephanie also has a six week old baby, I told her last week I was happy to drive the twins. Yesterday, Stephanie tried to do it all. Baby Claire melted down on the way to pick up the twins and when she arrived at camp, Jack proceeded to puke on all of them.
With a husband out of town, she asked if I could pick up Olivia this morning. I absolutely JUMPED at the chance to help Stephanie.
I smiled the whole drive to camp listening to these cuties chat about movies and Pokémon. My smile mainly formed for my gratitude to Stephanie for reminding me that we can’t do it alone...AND that our friends want to help us. Having a newborn (and 6-year old twins) is no joke. Being a mom is no joke. We often try to do it all alone and be supermom. Stephanie was the supermom today for reaching out and getting some time for yourself. Today, I bow down to you, Steph. I’m so thankful to be on your village and am ready to load up the car any day!
Use your village. It’s why we have one! Tag your mom village!! 👯‍♀️👯‍♀️👯‍♀️👯‍♀️

Sis said it best @perplexedpsyche2 ... I use to be held hostage by the good acts ppl who were very toxic to me did. And they would take every chance they could to remind me of the moments they were good to me in order to redirect my focus and distract me from their core issues. And I would fall for it. “ well she didn’t have to buy me food. She didn’t have to come pick me up that Tuesday. he didn’t have to help me out that one time so I should be able to overlook the lying, cheating, emotional abuse, the shutting me up when I’m trying to express how I feel. Sometimes I felt like pansatucky... in the sense of keeping a book of all the things I owe people and the names. I never wanted ppl to think I would ever take them for granted ( because I was taken for granted all my life.) I never wanted ppl to feel like I didn’t care or appreciate what they did ( because no one ever cared or appreciated the things I did.). So I would stay with ppl harmful to my spirit and my essence based on a few good deeds. And that wasn’t my job. And ppl who do genuine good acts for ppl know that your reward is from The universe. It comes back in different forms that’s how energy works. You may not get that money back that you lent out. But a man helped you with your groceries all the way to your car today. When you came into work, your workload was done for the day and you had a free day. Someone paid for your drinks today just fucking because. I hope this sits with your spirit this morning...blessings don’t always come back in the nice exact bundle we gave them out. And you never have to be a slave to kind acts especially to harmful ppl.

Pro Ob- April 11, 2018- Dallas Glass-Stevens Pass: While the weather can’t seem to make up its mind, the snowpack is all about Spring. A poor overnight refreeze, warm air temperatures, and sunshine in the morning allowed loose wet surface conditions to quickly develop today. We could easily produce loose wet avalanches on small test slopes by mid-day. Most of these loose wet avalanches ran quickly down slope, entrained significant additional snow, and traveled much farther than normal. Don’t underestimate loose wet avalanches this time of year. Several large and very large loose wet avalanche occurred in this area earlier this week. The largest (pictured) gouged the snow, traveled 1500 vertical feet, and was large enough to destroy a car.
Today we avoided slopes greater than 35 degrees as the sun softened the surface snow. We anticipate quick changes in snow conditions and traveled earlier in the day.
Enjoy spring in the mountains and keep your eyes open.

In March, life threw me a bunch of curve balls at once. One of them was the cutlass getting hit twice within a month. It happened at the worst time when everything was already turned upside down. That car to me was therapy. It was an extension of my home. It was my quiet place. If anxiety got high I would cruise west at 1am and hit Times Square or drive east with no music until I saw stars. Some of my best ideas, reflection, and serenity came to me while in that car. Since March I have been dealing with so much, and there were times where I felt like truly giving up. Times where I literally just put my head in my hands and asked “WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TO ME”. The only action I took was to get up, and keep going. Tired, irritable, sad, unable to focus, but just doing it and sometimes faking it. Time has passed. Work has gotten done. And I am starting to feel like myself again. And TODAY the universe blessed me. From now on please refer to me as “Pauly wit da blue caprice” 🤩 I couldn’t even sleep last night because I knew this morning was the day I got her. Lots of work to do but I’m excited ! Oldest one yet 1984😈

As we prepare the children to start school this week, we incorporated some improvisational singing and worship into our family morning devotion. I searched Youtube for some instrumental music and we sang from our hearts, rather than a song that has already been written. I don't know why I didn't just let them pour out, but I fought back the tears as I listened to my children sing to God from the purity of the hearts.
——
Much later that day, in the car, Zoe started to sing and Quinn yelled in excitement, "Daddy do you remember that time I started to sing a song and you were thinking of that exact song before I sang it?" I affirmed that I did remember and she said, "It just happened to me! I was singing the song in my head that Zoe is singing now." ———
Quinn's excitement caused me to recall all of the times something like that had happened and why it occurs. I went into this partially enlightened rant about how music hovers in the atmosphere and how we can tap into it. I shared with her the frequent occurrences I've had when I'm with someone and we seemingly randomly burst into singing the same song and, even freakier, at the exact same place in the song.
——-
This morning, I put on my instrumental music to worship by myself and twenty minutes into my singing, I was strongly reminded of Zephaniah 3:17, "...God will rejoice over you with singing."
——-
As I was singing to God and making up a song about His worthiness, I was interrupted with what I can only describe as Him singing over me, back to me. I was trying to sing about God's worth and God was singing about my worth. I share the message I just received hesitantly because I haven't had time to process it yet. I like to "preach" after I've been delivered from something or once I've walked it out, but I feel the need to be vulnerable this morning and reveal what God sang over me today. Someone listening may be hearing this exact same song in their head, like the episode I shared regarding Quinn and Zoe in the car.
——-
I don't know what it is for you, but for me it was being repeatedly sexually abused as a child... As I was singing this morning, God sang to me (I'm paraphrasing and interpreting what I felt)...

Yesterday was my last full day in Varese and Gian Pio Ottone invited me to see his speed boats and auto cross racers. Gian raced motorcycles for 15 yrs, speed boats for 15 yrs, and auto cross for 1 yr was a champion in all, and at 85 his memory for the details and the archive he’s kept are incredibly inspiring. As a souvenir, he gave me a spare Lodge spark plug from a boat with a 1968 Rainer i 2500cc Alfa Romeo engine. Sitting in the Porsche race car was thrilling and no one laughed when I made car racing noises. After a touching goodbye with Gian Pio who congratulated me again on my achievements, Enrico Mazzini’s family invited me to a welcomed surprise of a home-cooked meal, which allowed the opportunity of seeing part of Enrico’s impeccable collection of Aermacchis. As the President of the Aermacchi Club of Italy his knowledge about the history shouldn’t be surprising, but the details of the development, models, and people was, and I tried to soak up as much as possible.
.
It was a beautiful day and rather than going for a ride we opted for a drive in Enrico’s 1972 Alfa Romeo, why not? Varese is known for its green mountain landscape of 7 hills and as the land of the lakes with 7 lakes. First we drove up to Via del Belvedere to a beautiful view of Lake Varese, then higher to Sacro Monte where Santuario Di Santa Maria Del Monte is, an UNESCO sight built in 1474, where 4 lakes are visible, we arrived just as the cathedral was closing, but the grounds and views were breathtaking. As we were leaving, the thunder started with rain and we became happy with our decision of stretching the legs of the Alfa.
.
The day concluded with another delicious meal at a neighborhood restaurant, converted from a labor club est in 1892, perfect place for a meal on Labor Day. My favorite, Pasta Marinara del la Schiranna with spada, gamberi, calamari, seppie, and pomodorini with wine, followed by pistachio budino or pudding with limoncello. Good thing there’s so much walking...
.
Today is my last day in Varese, in the afternoon I return to Milan for the last dinner in Italy, celebrating with old and new friends. Returning home tomorrow morning. Racing at El Mirage this wkd!

The day my dad waited 43 years for! The day my family deplaned my dad’s final boarding call— a 777 flight he captained from SYD to LAX. The day I sit here smiling, in Idaho of all places, tears streaming down my face, wishing I could be there as I reflect on a lifetime of admiration and, at times, sacrifice, when the corny jokes-making, secret candy-dealing, matchbox 20-loving, car-washing, tech-loving, upbeat, caring, and positively *best-dad-ever* would have to leave his little girls again for the airport, headed to Shanghai, jetlagged at 4am. His uniform and captain’s hat hanging up in his bedroom, diddy bag ready, carry-on packed, ready to go at a moment’s notice— a sight singed into my memory.
-
Today is my dad’s 65th birthday. The day my dad hangs up his “wings” after nearly half a century of piloting the skies, both as a Navy F-18 fighter pilot protecting our freedom and an airline captain at the helm of hundreds of thousands of lives.
-
To say I’m happy for him is putting it lightly. I’ve never met a harder working person. But his retirement is also a win for my mom, who routinely stepped in on double-parenting duty while my dad was on trips. I’m happy for her too.
-
As I take on my new job in a company and position that feels “more like fun than it does work,” (those are my dads words in reference to his own), I hope to emulate the same undying motivation to get up in the morning and be the leader people need. Never forgetting to give a pat on the back to the intern, the gas station clerk, the janitor— whomever the case may be— because working from the ground up is a trait worth recognizing.

Congratulations to Capt. White and happy 65th. Now go get yourself a piña colada over a blackjack bet on the cruise ship!👨🏻‍✈️🎉🎲🚢🍹

A 20-something year old that feels like the world is constantly testing my will. Either by having nothing at all or by having everything happen at once.

I read somewhere that ages 22-33 are the most stressed people. You're passed the puberty stage and the raging hormones and moving towards the, omg I actually have to get my life together at some point. I've always been a free spirit. Slight FOMO syndrome. My calendar is littered with different colors of functions and events I'm attending every month. I can't remember ANYTHING and I'm one of the most indecisive people I know....maybe.... The universe is going to test your will constantly. One day you're waking up and the birds are chirping and the next they're shitting all over your freshly washed car.

I can sit here and sulk and tell you how 2018 has not been that nice to me. My mental and emotional state has been tested immensely. I've made a lot of changes in my personal and professional life that have been literally giving me nightmares. But I'll also be the first to tell you how wonderful the feeling is when you succeed in something hard.

Today was my first day back in college. This was a major step for me because I never fathomed completely switching careers. I woke up at 430 this morning and had a panic attack. I'm typically not one to stress about things but when you're dishing out that much $$$$$$ you start to freak a little. After my drama session this morning, I picked myself up and got ready. I had a great day and I'm excited to dig deeper into furthing my education! It's never too late to reinvent yourself

Most of the team got in the car, drove to Westwood, and watched as delivery #1 took place. It took us almost a year to launch, and after all the work, long nights, and headaches and heartaches, here we were watching it work, surprisingly flawlessly, for the first time. .
We were so pumped we took photos and gave the user, our now good friend Priyanka, a shirt. .

Of all the deliveries we’ve done, this one’s still my favorite. ♥️ #Repost @buddytruk with @get_repost

After a whirlwind of a trip in Arkansas & Missouri, our family of three had an extremely long day traveling home, starting with a 3.5 hour drive to Kansas City and ending with lost luggage after flight cancellations AND delays all afternoon. 🤦🏼‍♀️ I may have a ridiculously tired infant next to me, spit up on my shirt, baby poop on my pants (Skyler’s timing for blow outs is always 👌🏼 top notch), and no makeup or hair supplies for work in the morning 🤷🏼‍♀️, but I wanted to share a highlight from the day while I reflect on our car ride home in Brooklyn. ✈️🚕
.
Ladies, have you ever used a pumping/nursing station? ✨ Today was my first day stumbling upon one, and I immediately downloaded the (free) @mamava_vt app and jumped at the chance to use it during our wait time at the airport. 🤱🏼
.
For twenty minutes, I forgot I was annoyed and stressed out from the day, and I had a peaceful nursing session with Skyler without wondering who’s trying to sneak a peek. Finally! There was an outlet, a mirror, and meditation and calming playlists to listen to on the app, too. 🧘🏼‍♀️ Thank you @zappos and #mamava for making this mama’s day. 💁🏼‍♀️ #gomama #notaponsored #justappreciated

I remember it like yesterday, watching the South Tower fall...and then the North Tower fall from right outside my apt building. There are some things that will forever change you on almost a cellular level. 17 years ago today was a day that changed so many of us in this way. I was a young mother living in lower Manhattan and so scared for what was to come. For those of you who lived in NYC on that day and experienced what I did, I send you love...you can truly understand how it feels as those memories flood back into your consciousness. We must never forget and always pause to remember the beautiful people we lost and the very brave and strong people who were left behind to rebuild and move on. New Yorkers are a special breed...we do brave good. #neverforget #NYC #9/11 ♥️Ella

p.s. thank you Ella, you are so right! I just want to add that for those of you affected by the attack on the pentagon that morning, of course this goes to you as well. I was working a night shift at the hospital and driving home that morning when I saw what had happened. I missed it by minutes. Things like this, I don’t think anyone can be prepared for, and when it happens, shock kicks in first; disbelief. For me I went completely blank and was frozen for a good while before I could get back in my car and make my way home. As many of you remember, the phones were all jammed up and I was desperately trying to get a hold of my cousin who worked in the pentagon. I never heard her voice or her endearing snorting laugh again. Love you cuz. Always and forever. Love and blessings to you all. We have not forgotten. ♥️Leila

The water in this vase needs to be changed desperately. But the roses are even more beautiful today than the morning my husband walked in with them. The night before, I called him while he was at the station wanting to pull out my hair because I had been cleaning up vomit off our bathroom rug that morning and diarrhea off the playroom rug that evening. All from Felix. Also, the dog got car sick that day and voided in every way possible in his dog carrier. My threshold of bodily fluids had hit its maximum capacity. Secondly, said husband and I were supposed to play tennis today but as we were heading down to leave, so did the downpour of rain 😩. So we decided to be decadent and catch up on our newest Netflix obsession, Seven Seconds. Have you seen it? Sooo freaking good. Lastly, I meal planned this week because I’m determined to not serve my family a frozen pizza for at least one week of their lives. Wish me luck. 🤞🏼 #felixscars #thoughtaboutmovingthemoutoftheframe #votedagainstit

I was picturing getting five kids into the car in the morning . Baby on hip . Maybe a little bit of crying and a lot of chaos . Instead it was easy . And there are only four of you .
I imagined two babies on walks . I imagined you having a friend to keep you company . I imagined trips to the park . Swinging you high with a baby wrapped tightly around me .
But instead it’s just you & me .
And with a sigh of relief, I discovered this morning that, that’s ok .
It’s not what I imagined . But I can lay those dreams aside , open my eyes and see you .
I see you sweet girl .
I can focus on the present while hoping for the future .
I can be thankful for the day today . For you singing in the rain . With you refusing to walk another step when we are 1/2 mile home . For the smell of cookies in the oven and chili on the stove. For the three other bigs we both can’t wait to pick up in a few hours .
It’s a new season .

If any of you happen along this long-winded diatribe I'm about to delve into, may it be a stepping stone on your path to bettering yourself. Nine years ago: A redirection in my life. One that was necessary. Absolute. While in the midst of a divorce, I developed what many in the medical field would call a "drinking problem". Bullshit. I was an unsociable borderline alcoholic drinking a fifth of whiskey every night on my days off (on a compressed work schedule, that's 3-4 bottles a week). I woke up in puddles of my own puke, sweat and tears. Both my parents and my in-laws reached out to me, but it was too late. My welcome was on the brink of finished, and all I wanted to do was to keep drinking to forget. Except when you wake up, you still remember, plus the pounding headaches. In the midst of attempting to be a social person again, I met a group of people online and one of them invited me to his house for a party. We all had the same interests; art, movies and music. I introduced myself to those hanging out and started drinking again to kill the bug I had up my ass. Guess what I did? Blacked out and made people uncomfortable. It's always the worst when you can't remember what you did. I'm just glad I'm a softie when it comes to relinquishing my car keys. After fading in and out of consciousness, I remembered crying, apologizing profusely and being led to the backseat of my car or the couch to sleep it off. The next morning, I was told what happened and drove home, apologizing to the one other person that was awake. The day after, I apologized to everybody that I recalled meeting. And made a promise to them and most importantly to myself: Please give me another chance, and I swear, I'll never have another drop of alcohol again. Nine years today. Still sober. And those same people back then are some of the most caring, loving, sweetest, wonderful people that I'm honored to call my friends. In your own darkness, there's still a ray of light to be found. Look within yourself. You will find it. May you find it. Thank you for reading. 🚫🥃 #alcoholfree #nineyears #sober #sobriety

I look back and wish we traveled even more when we were a family of three. We have a very fussy baby this second time around, plus a 2-year-old with a crazy amount of energy. That makes for some interesting situations. On a recent trip to Montauk Charlie [my two year old] got car sick. There I was, alone with two kids on the side of Montauk Highway, and throw up was coming out in buckets. Thankfully, a very nice police officer pulled up behind us and held Charlie’s hand as I cleaned out the car.

You are always going to run into obstacles while traveling. As a parent, it’s all about how to handle them. Your reactions will set the tone for the day. That’s something I try to be very aware of. We ended up having such a beautiful day in Montauk. You would never know what our morning was like.

But it’s also just as important to know when to say: this isn’t going to work today.

Yesterday was a day I am not scared to say I was not prepared for.

Sky saw a rabbit outside when she was on her leash and ran after it. When she hit the end of her leash it must have wrapped around her back leg which ended up breaking her tibia badly in three spots.She was in an enormous amount of pain and had to have immediate surgery to get plates put into her right hind leg.

Sky had the surgery early this morning and will remain in the care of the emerge clinic until tomorrow morning when I can pick her up. The doctor called me today and told me the surgery was successful and that she will need 8 weeks of rest, but expects a full recovery. 🙏🏻
I will post another post tomorrow morning after I pick her up.
As most of you know, Sky is my little baby, my world. With no insurance on her, yesterday morning my car was almost on the market. Thankfully I was able to figure out a solution without having to do that.

I know Sky has a lot of people that love her. She’s a good girl even though she makes a mess once in a while, or... every time I leave her alone🙄🙈😂, but I love her with every ounce of me. You can’t put a price tag on this little girl. We have to do what we have to do to make sure our loved ones are taken care of properly❤️ #sky #skylee #loving #boxer #special #brindle #girl #iniured

Sesame, apricot & mulberry granola, all day everyday 💛 I developed this recipe over a year ago, and I still make a new batch each week. It takes about 30 min in total to make, so there’s still time for you to bake a tray of this warm spiced granola for tomorrow morning! 😍
.
This morning I served the granola with oat yoghurt, kiwi, blueberries, walnuts & cacao nibs + the mandatory matcha latte 💚 The book hiding behind the plant is ”Stjärnor utan svindel” and I’m so hooked that I’m late for work every morning, seriously 🙇🏻‍♀️ Has anyone of you read it?
.
The recipe link to the granola is in my profile, and I highly recommend adding coconut flakes to the mix!! 👌🏼😛 Now I’m off to watch an episode of Castle Rock and try to grasp the fact that I, as of today, have a driving license ?!?!? Three weeks ago I couldn’t even get the car started 😬 Watch out neighbors! 🚗💨🙈

How will you get your physical movement in today?
.
I like to start my days with a 45-90 min walk. Breathe fresh air deep into my lungs. Connect to the immenseness that I am part of.
.
Spending too much time indoors within square walls and closed doors around you, keeps you separate from nature, our true nature. So I like to head out first thing in the morning to kind of remind myself of where I come from. What I am made of. What I am here to do.
.
The best thing with going out early is the opportunity to be mostly alone. With no distraction from other people and not as much man made noise as later in the day. You will be able to hear the waves, the birds, the wind in the trees. All of which help you remember your connection to nature.
.
Make a commitment to yourself to explore a new area of the city/town where you live, every few days. Take a road you’ve rarely walked. Look up what parks and green areas you can find on google maps within walking distance. Or ride the bike/take the car to a green area farther away, park your vehicle and head out to explore by foot.
.
Any movement is good movement. And the more you connect to nature, the clearer mind you’ll get, and more gratitude will you be able to cultivate. Not to mention all the good that walking does for your heart and physical being.
.
Enjoy your day 👣

I woke up at a very quaint airbnb in Denver. After a necessarily lazy morning @atown72 and I discovered her car had been broken (we didn't lock the car) in to. Luckily nothing too major was lost as we had brought most of the stuff inside.
To make up for our loss we had some killer brunch at Racine's capped with a couple mimosas. After ingesting a couple of JT's quite potent gummy worms Alyssa and I wandered around downtown Denver and explored a couple super cool shops. There was Wizard's Chest which has so many godamn cool board games I want to be buried there. On our way to Mutiny Cafe we had a random Evan Plys sighting. Well Alyssa had the sighting. I was quite positive she was going up to accost some random red haired/bearded individual while shouting "EVAN!?" at him.
At Mutiny I was able to find a copy of The Stand with the cover I've been hunting down for years. Then we mosied on to the Museum of Science and Nature where I learned koala hands are fucking buck wild. Now I'm home listening to the present Alyssa got me on the other one she got me.

I'm lucky.
Life is great.
I love you all.
Thank you for the well wishes.

Traditionally, I woke early ~4:45am.
This time though I woke with greater excitement. Like Christmas or the day leaving for a holiday.
I was excited to start my adventure & also undeceive of where to start. I then noted that I have no rush, 2 weeks isn’t a limit!
I had breakfast and took Darbs in the car to Albert Park Lake.
My intention was to see the sunrise.
We arrived pitch black.
I commenced a sensory mindfulness walk (I’ve just made this up today) to bring me present.
I went through all 5 senses, & out load (well also to Darbs). I spoke what I saw, heard, felt, smelt and even tasted. It took me about 15-20 mins.
Here are some things I experienced:
👀 - many colors, textures, lake, trees, sky, moon, city high rises, lights, wildlife, people, memories (especially triathlon days and the many laps running or on the bike and also at the pool, I also saw memories of being cold, stressed, excited and learning from a great coach I once had, craig Percival. I saw space & depth.
👂- birds, trees, people & their energy & moods, the water glittering, Darby excited & pulling on the lead, the crushing of the dirt path as I walked, cars & people out there starting their morning rush
🤲 Felt - Cold fingers, a warm core, Darby’s company, lightness in my body, fresh air through my hair (wearing out for once!), the cold breeze on my face and a sense of freedom and peace. I started asking myself where am “I”?... 🤔 I am not solely in my heart, brain or gut these are organs ... I am everywhere... I am not always in my body, my imagination & memories take my experiences to places I’ve been in the past or not at all.
👃 - this one was hard to begin.I couldn’t smell anything. I then closed my eyes & memories rushed back from playing down near the river as a child & waiting for the the bus on a cold & fresh morning.
👅 - I closed my eyes & tasted that I had had breakfast, I scanned my physical & emotional appetite cues & symptoms & realized I was satisfied, not hungry,not full.
Although I didn’t get to the gym, a run or a yoga class this morning I am feeling no less happy or satisfied, I feel calm and have a nice warmth in my core.I am on the right path

For my first full day in South Carolina and after a great night's sleep at the @holidayinn Charleston Historic District, I decided to spend the morning at Boone Hall Plantation. On this trip to Charleston, I was determined to go car free. So, I was happy to learn tours to Boone Hall could be booked from the Visitor's Center in town, which was located only a couple blocks away from the hotel. The plantation, established in 1681 by Major John Boone, is one of America's oldest working farms. Once known for growing cotton and pecans - today, Boone Hall grows strawberries, tomatoes, peaches and pumpkins. They even have opportunities for visitors to "pick their own" produce. Built in 1936 by Thomas Stone - a Canadian ambassador - the main house is relatively new. Over the years, three other structures once stood in its place. The plantation has always been privately owned. In 1956, the current owners decided to open the plantation to visitors - decorating the house with antiques and allowing guests to tour the first floor. The top floors being off limits since the current owner still lives on the property. Along with the plantation house, visitors are able to take a self guided tour of the gardens and "Slave Cabins". Each cabin focused on different aspects of day to day life for the Gullah Geechee people. From way of life, work and daily struggles - it gave you a real look and better understanding of plantation life for those who worked the fields. Boone Hall was definitely a beautiful way to spend the morning - wandering through gardens, taking in the history, beautiful scenery and ...visiting the Butterfly Pavilion! 🌼🌸😍 #HolidayInn #Ad

I always promised myself if I ever had children, they’d never be dirty or smelly. As I lay here in bed with my now 10 month baby boy 😭, I can’t help but feel so proud of the dirt on his 10 little toes 🖤 We woke up this morning, got a bath, and Bo spent the day at his friends while I worked, they sent me pictures of him playing all day long. As soon as I picked him up, we came home to play some more. With blocks and books and cars and boxes...his beautiful, eyes looking at everything he could starry eyed and with so much wonder. He crawled all over the floor and drove his car into every wall, all while saying ma ma ma ma ma. I cannot believe how fast time truly is flying. Before children, everyone tells you time flies and you do not believe it. Celebrating Bo’s 10 months today, I couldn’t believe how fast time really has went by and decided instead of staging a 10 month picture, I would capture the success of today. We played, we kissed, we hugged, we danced, we crawled, we read, but most of all, we loved him with all we could today, and I know I’ll love him even more tomorrow than I do today. I cannot imagine our life without you, Bo, dirty, perfect little toes and all 👣 #baby #babyboy #babylove #momlife #family #iloveyou #boymom

One thing that I have had the hard time to learn and deal with is Grief this year with losing my Dad so quickly earlier this year. When Dad got diagnosed with cancer and passed away just 4 weeks later it didn’t give me very much time to even process it all. There are still some days it doesn’t even hardly cross my mind because it just happened so fast and I forget that he isn’t here until I think to go text him about a football game or call him about a car I saw that I liked, but then some days it hits me like a ton of bricks and rocks my world for several hours. Today @jasoncrabbmusic sang like he does every year at church. But this year it wrecked me. Jason has always been my moms favorite gospel singer and always comes to Free Chapel during Christmas. We played one of his most popular songs at my dads funeral and when I walked into church this morning it immediately wrecked me when I heard Jason singing. I thanked Jason after service for his wonderful spirit as he is one of the best people you’ll meet, and thanked him for sharing himself with our church during this season. He helped me remember my father today. Two days before Christmas. My first Christmas without my Dad—the best gift I could have been given. My Dad loved Jason’s music too, and was always proud a fellow Kentucky guy came to FC every year to sing. I love you Dad. Thinking about you all the time and I’ll never forget the legacy you left here, and I promise I’ll keep working hard every single day to build what you started for our family here in Georgia 😊.

I was so relieved when I walked up to the courtyard outside Hazel’s classroom today to find a gaggle of other parents who also chose to forgo the car pickup line and greet their kids in person after their first day. As we waited for the bell to ring, I looked around at them and thought ahead five, ten, even twenty years from now. We are beginning the long road of educating our kids together, growing a community for them (and thereby creating one for ourselves.) These are the parents that will join me on class field trips. We will plan fundraisers together and decorate the gym for our kids’ first dance. We’ll see them outside school on the soccer field, help them navigate the ups and downs of childhood friendships, host sleepovers and beach days. Inevitably, some of these parents will become dear friends. But today, we are strangers, bonded only by mutual nervousness and excitement and love for our five year olds. Today marks our kids’ first real day of school, but it is also OUR first day as the parents of school children. This morning, we smiled through teary eyes and squeezed our babies goodbye, hoping their bravery would rub off on us. This afternoon, they emerged with confidence and we breathed a communal sigh of joy and relief. And so it is... we dive into the unknown and embark upon this new chapter of parenting together. Let the fun begin and the community grow.

There is something special about this day when you have your foundation built on Christ and realize what was done for you. Beyond thankful today. Beyond in love today. Thank you Jesus.
Happy Easter from a small portion of my family, but a large portion of my heart. My Mom literally could not wait to see Cass sing for the first time, and Easter was the perfect time. Thankful for Christina and the effort she made to drive from Columbus and to change IN her car for service. To say I am proud is not sufficient for what I feel after this weekend seeing you do want God has called you too, Cass- you are so amazing to me.

ps: my Mom and I are joking about the length of Cass’s legs in comparison to ours. Thank you for legs, Mom.
ps2: my Mom is the mom that always jokes about buying ripped jeans but my goodness she’s got a tear in hers and she was so proud of “being hip” this morning- she looks so beautiful

Two of the most frequent questions I get in my inbox are “How do i get a flatter stomach?” aaand, of course, “How do i get a bigger booty?” 🤦🏽‍♀️😂 I’ll address the latter on another day. Today I’ll tackle FLATTER MID SECTIONS!!
.
Here are some tips and a few exercises to help with your goals!
.
TIPS FOR A FLATTER, TIGHTER, MID SECTION
.
1. Cut calories ...try reducing your daily intake by 500-1000 calories.
.
2. Eat more fiber ...more #2’s if you know what I mean😉
.
3. CAR-DI-OOO ...get MOVING!! Shoot for at least 30 minutes of cardio daily. I prefer early morning fasted cardio.
.
4. Increase protein ...protein builds and repairs muscles.
.
5. Eat more healthy fats ...avocado, olive oil, nuts, seeds, etc.
.
6. Limit carb intake and eliminate refined carbs ...refined sugar, white bread, white flour, white rice, etc.
.
7. Resistance training ...lift those weights!!! Prevent muscle loss and gain more muscles.
.
8. Avoid liquid calories ...alcohol🤦🏽‍♀️, fruit juices, etc.
.
9. Eat single ingredient foods ...eat CLEAN!
.
10. Increase WATER intake! ...water not only eliminates toxins, but reduces bloating.
.
11. Mindful eating ...STOP eating without paying attention to your body. Some of us get distracted with talking or tv that we don’t pay attention to our body saying “YOOO IM FULL! STOP!” .. noooo we keep talking and keep eating. BE MINDFUL.. taste your food, enjoy your food, but stop when you’re full! Your stomach should not be expanding to the point of belt loosening. That’s tooo much!
.
12. HIIT .. High Intensity Interval Training ...This way of exercising makes your body burn more fat and increases your metabolic rate, even long after you've finished your workout.
.
13. STOP STRESSING!! ..stress triggers the body to produce cortisol, a stress hormone. It has been known to increase appetite and lead specifically to belly fat storage. Chill, meditate, do yoga, pray, and know that everything will be ok no matter what!
.
14. SLEEEP! ...According to Healthline.com... In women, short sleep duration is consistently linked to increased waist size, compared to those who get a good night's sleep.
Sleep-deprived people are up to 55% more likely to become obese.
