Our family love us for all that we do but they often forget to actually say it and the truth is we don't really mind. We love our children knowing that the true appreciation won't come until later on in life, something much later. I didn’t understand how hard it actually is to be mom until I myself became a mother. Being a mother is a hard job! None of us really know what we are doing but we all try our very best. No one is perfect but we do what we think is best for our children not knowing if we made the right choices. This year I was forced to teach incredible strength to son. To stand strong, tall, and brave. Watching Zayn suffer emotionally has almost broken me. I've wanted to break down, I've wanted to throw my hands up and say it's too hard, but I didn't allow myself to give up. As a mother I don't have the option to fall apart. I must show my children no matter what happens to you, no matter how badly you feel, you have to be brave and push through. I have two incredibly beautiful sons. Zayn is funny, kind, and caring. Davy is sassy but sweet, and most definitely a little bit cheeky. They are both their own person and I love them for that. I hope everyone had an amazing day. You deserve to be honored for being the mothers you are. I will always be here if any of you need me. I’m not a brand, I just created one. I’m a mother like you! No matter what I will always lend an ear to anyone that needs someone to listen. ▪️Thank you so much for your generous support through the years. I beyond grateful that you all allow me to do what I love while still being the Mom I want to be. -Kacey 💓▪️ •

Welcome to the world Mason Francis Meagher 💙 weighing in at 3.9kg and measuring 50cm , this beautiful little boy was born last night at 8.35pm on the 28.3.18. Mum and bub are both healthy and fine and doing well 🤗
I don’t know really where to start with this post but firstly i want to thank the people closest to me for the support you have provided over the whole course of this happening. To my family and friends who I shared this with , thank you , you are all much appreciated and loved and I can’t wait for you all to be apart of this journey with me 😍
To all the people that I haven’t shared this secret with , I just want to say I’m sorry. I hope you can understand that I only wanted to share this news with my nearest and dearest. This was not planned and this was not how I expected my life to unfold but when I found out the news I was obviously shocked , in disbelief and never knew when the right time was to tell someone or let them in. I’m sorry if this upsets or hurts anyone 😔
Just to make it clear to everyone and anyone interested in what’s going on , I’ve decided that I’m going to play a role and father my boy to the best of my ability. The mother and I have an amazing friendship/relationship and while we are not a couple we both only have Masons best interests at heart and so we’re going to co-parent and roll with the punches and do the best we can to provide the best life for our boy. Not everyone will understand and I don’t expect to win new friends by saying all this but it is what it is and I’m not backing down from my responsibilities and I’ve always believed that everything happens for a reason so here’s to MY BOY MASON and to new beginnings and a new chapter !!! #shitjustgotreal #bringiton #newbeginnings #thenextchapter #daddydaycare #halfcastbaby #lockupyourdaughters #teachinghimeverythingiknow #masonmeagher 💙💙💙

Bear with me #typingthroughtears. I so often find myself feeling a race against a timeline that isn’t there. I have the pleasure of wonderful, successful, talented friends and family all around me at all ages and sometimes I get sucked into their story and wonder where does mine begin? For my mom and dad, love started at 15, so at 30, I wonder what’s wrong with me? I see friends that I use to study, drink, etc with go off into careers and thrive while I feel as if I still don’t know what I want to do in life. I watch people live out journeys that I have prayed for all my life while I am struggling to breathe. This post reminds me that my path is my own. My own unique and blessed opportunity to let my own energy resonate through the earth. I must remember that time, though precious, is relative. And what happens in my life will come when it needs to. Special thanks to the Friend Zone podcast, SZA, and Will from Willnotwilly for helping me confront this issue and @chubs_2_steel for the post. #therapy #underconstruction #human

woke up in the middle of the night because of some odd, uneasy feeling. went to sleep in the living room and had about 10 of the most vivid and tactile dreams in my sleep. i felt like i was being watched. like i couldn't have been alone.

mama, I passed my boards. i'm a nurse. I PASSED BOARDS AND I'M A NURSE. crying because i'm so relieved but also crying nonstop because you should be here for this. i swear i can hear your voice and i just wish i could hear how excited and finally hear how proud you would be. my beliefs are mixed about the universe and what happens to us after we leave the earth, but my soul is hoping so hard that you are here somewhere in my space.

i passed. i did it. i can't believe i did it.
shame on all the people who refused to understand why i've done what i've done. even if you ARE family or friend. i don't have to explain and i'm done doing so. it's not my fault that you never understood my intentions. i am ANYTHING but a disgrace and i had an end game in mind and now i get to focus on my dreams as well as take care of my dad. watch me. i can do anything.

if i can pass boards after losing my mom only days after graduating, i can do anything. fighting for you, mama.

now, let's get back to the music. who's ready? who is ready for some more open mics and performances as well as more songs written by me?? i'm ready!
Deneza Jadol Music & Art

mom, i actually passed boards. i'm dying inside because i need you here. this was for you. i hope with all my heart that you can feel this and hear this. i hope so much. <3 missing you. thank you for moving here from the philippines so that i could have a future and opportunity. now i get to make art too. thanks for forcing me to learn how to sing. and play guitar. and piano. and be me. i love you so much. hear this.

Many of you know this, but the beginning of July I was diagnosed with a type of bone cancer called Ewings Sarcoma. As you can imagine, this came as a huge shock to my family and I. There are many reasons for this post, but one of them is to update everyone on where we are. I've received my first round of Chemo, and we start round two (in OKC) of about 14 cycles next Wednesday.
_______
**Now the good part**
You never really know how you're going to react in situations like this until it happens but I can honestly confess, to my social media family, that since I was diagnosed God has taken me on a journey that I would have never imagined. Full of things like image issues (losing your hair is still weird) heart issues (what really matters) and how thankful I am for everything he's put in my life. I'm writing this because I'm not defeated, in fact I'm responding well to this medicine and I'm already on my way to be cured (IN JESUS NAME), but writing this to tell everyone who reads how incredible God really is, that when your night is darkest he wants to shine the brightest. I posted this pic because Doctors are saying that over the next almost year I'm going to be on my butt, and having a hard time for the most part, but instead I got to preach to a room full of hungry students last night 12 of whom received Christ as their personal savior! Mark my words, God will receive all the glory from every part of this next year and my church @discoveryokc And @discoverystudents Are getting better in every way through this! #comeonsomebody #ilovemyjob

This took place at martell's tiki at point pleasant yesterday.
This all started over an employee accusing me of stealing a plain slice of pizza when I paid for it and showed my receipt. After the employee and I exchanged a few words, the manager came out and threw the money in my face. He then pushed me out accompanied by the cops telling me to put my hands behind my back! While being harassed I was puzzled asking “what did I do and why do I need to put my hands behind my back, am I getting arrested?” What ever happened to lets get both sides of the story and then taking the appropriate action?

Thats 13,800+ Dogs and Cats killed every single day.

575 PER HOUR - 24 HOURS PER DAY - 7 DAYS A WEEK.

These are perfectly healthy and friendly animals who only want a family to love them. Instead they’re dumped into a jail cell and most will be killed the same way as mass murderers. They loved their families the only way they knew and their reward is a trip to the shelter where they’ll be treated worse than rapists and murderers.

The shelters just cannot handle the amount of dogs and cats irresponsible humans purchase to then drop at shelters.

What is so wrong with human beings that they think a life is disposable? Would it be acceptable to drop your kid off at an orphanage because your new apartment didn’t allow kids? Or if your kid wasn’t behaving would that warrant leaving him for dead on the side of the road?

It really makes me sick to think anyone could drop dog off at a shelter when its clear what happens to them - It’s no secret. 80-90% of dogs will never leave the shelter.

Dumping your dog should NEVER an option. Dogs and all other pets are FAMILY! They have lives and they aren’t fucking disposable! Save a dog and keep yours.

I was originally supposed to move to California when I moved out west. I had a one way flight booked and a deposit on an apartment. Once they decided to tell me pits weren’t allowed I said fuck that. Anywhere who doesn’t want my dog can eat shit. No apartment or living arrangement would EVER be worth abandoning my dog. I’d live in a cardboard box with them if I had to. People need to take notes from their dogs and start reciprocating the loyalty they receive from their dogs.

If you do decide to dump your dog due to your own incompetence, please do all of us in the rescue community a favor. After leaving the shelter go find a gun, put it in your mouth and pull the trigger. You’re one more scumbag human we DO NOT need on this planet.

PLEASE ADOPT - DON’T SHOP

I was freaking out for a solid year that I was turning 28.. all because it signified that I’m 2 years shy of 30. I was researching what happens to women’s bodies after 30 and furiously googling the positive effects of Botox. I looked in the mirror wondering when I’d start getting wrinkles... I think it’s the closest I’ve ever been to a quarter life crisis panic attack. And then I went to buy myself a wine and I got ID checked & all my superficial worries seemingly felt insignificant. 🍷 I love my life, my family, my friends, my dog... I have learnt to let go of the negativity that modelling brought in to my heart/soul. The simple things in life now spark the fire in my belly... I am far more wiser at 28 than I was at 25. If this is what true joy feels like, then I cannot wait to see who I become at 30 ❤️❤️❤️ I am grateful for all the people I’ve been lucky enough to love xox

You, Natalie, and your parents are family to me. You guys treated me like family when my family didn't treat me as their own. We're starting our 20's and we have already had tons of laughter and great stories to pass on. We have a friendship that cannot be broken or tampered with. You give me advice, and I know I can always go to you for help with anything. I hope that no matter what happens to us or where either of us end up, that we still remain close friends. You're my best friend and my bro. Anyways, I don't want this to be too long, I wish both you and Natalie nothing but luck with your relationship and I hope you work hard and become the best doctor you can be. I'm proud to call you my best friend. - Jettmar 🙏🏻✊🏻

the silent hour. i forgot to log the hour in my hospice volunteer clock. now it's gotten too late, this hour is gone.  unnoticed. unremarked. that forgettable hour with H***, dying more peacefully than most i have witnessed these last months. she like many: a~lone: no family. no ... the silent hour.
i forgot to log the hour
in my hospice volunteer clock.
now it's gotten too late, this hour is gone.
 unnoticed. unremarked.
that forgettable hour with H***,
dying more peacefully than most i have
witnessed these last months.
she like many:
a~lone:
no family.
no friends.
no stories.
no tears at her passing
(besides my own and other volunteers perhaps). just oxygen
and nurses and hospice
on call around, hour after hour
until bed: empty. soul: flown.
body: left. (still i can smell the Grace, hovering.
they've come from the other side) ...i don't even know what happens to these bodies of those 'without loved ones.'
i have yet to inquire.
i am remaining in the mystery of it all, for the moment.
pure, uncomplicated, quiet, reverent: WITNESS.
sometimes i feel a great sadness,
like the sound of violins that moves through
or angry at the constant TV drone
in the 'old folks home.' my current client is angry too,
because he's dying
and no one goes to see him, but me
and the nurses on clocks,
who could well be a special breed
of angels in disguise.
believe me, i'm taking notes.
my first client
had forgotten most of her life:
no memories of the trips to Paris
or having moved from Portland from elsewhere... all that forgetting. when i tell people
they turn away: too sad, they say.
their denial building a slow wall
between my heart and theirs.
sometimes i want to stamp my feet
and shake them...don't you see!
LOOK AROUND.
in this room of 10 people,
if 7 of us live past 75,
3 won't remember this moment.
maybe even, none of us will?
what a relief! what freedom!
or...what terror! what a crisis!
i don't know...
you choose.
embrace the mystery:
whatever you are concerned about now
will soon be passing on,
on passing, i will wave and smile:
whole ~ heartedly.

I always enjoyed going to petting zoos, circuses, and more. Coming from a Hispanic background I've always enjoyed eating meat as well. I was the biggest meat and cheese eater just like maybe yourself or your family members. I never saw myself being vegan EVER. Trust me when I say that. But when it was brought to my attention the way animals are slaughtered, mutilated, raped, and brutally killed for consumption, I knew what I was doing was not what an animal lover would do. I woke up one day and decided to go vegan. Going vegan has not only opened my eyes to the atrocities to what happens to animals, but to the planet and people. I've become a more compassionate being to not only people but especially animals. I see a soul and a being with intelligence far beyond what I can comprehend when I see any animal. It doesn't stop there. Everyday being vegan I'm learning something new and living as ethically as I can. So to my cat sitting next to me, I love you just as much as the next cow or chicken. All sentient beings deserve love and compassion. Today marks my 6 months of being vegan and I'm so grateful to be apart of this lifestyle and community. Thank you to all the people that support and the people that don't. Either or you make me a stronger person in my beliefs of veganism. For all animals and animals alike!!! 🐶🐷🐱🐮🐔

Everyone who knows about me knows that Rosie was my lefthand in action and I was her righthand throughout high school. I still talked to her on a weekly bases to know what wassup. I just talked to her 3 days ago. Rosie didn't deserve this at all. She was always happy and turnt when I seen her and when she wasn't, she'd let me know what's wrong and I'd try to help her. The fact that I heard about the news last night about some bodies in her house had me already in disbelief and I barely could sleep. Now I wake up to seeing that her baby's dad did this shit! I'm beyond heated! Words can't explain how sad/mad I am. And now her daughter has to grow up without a mom and she'll have to deal with the fact that her dad was the reason for her death. There's nothing I can do about this except for sit back and watch what happens to that fuck nigga. I hope the worst for him and I know his family is disgusted with his action. Well, I know she's watching from above and that she will watch over all her close friends and family. To everyone who is effected from this loss, stay strong and remember that you never know who will be gone the next day so appreciate them while they're here. 👌🏽🙏🏽😔 @queenro_

This is a picture of me being treated after being stabbed. I won’t bore you with the story again, but this picture best encapsulates the moments and chaos that followed me stopping an attacker from killing his intended target, and instead almost killing me.⠀

As we celebrated my brothers wedding (which was a movie btw) and my birthday this week, I took some time to reflect on where I am in my life and what’s happened over the previous year. ⠀

I just have to say how grateful I am that God spared my life. I should have been dead. The consultants told me 5 more millimetres (smaller than a grain of rice) and I would have bled out on the floor, so I know that I am a miracle. ⠀

I remember thinking at the time that if this was it, if this was how my life was going to end, that I was grateful for the family I was given, for the love and joy we shared over the years and for the way they always believed in me. I really think I have received more than my fair share and I was very grateful. On the other side of that, I said to myself, if I get out of this situation, I will never take my life for granted again. I will live intentionally doing what I was born to do and making sure that I don’t ever allow anything or anyone to stop me being the best version of me that I can be.⠀

So, why am I sharing this today you ask? ⠀

Well I just want to encourage you to level up your life. To look at the areas where you don’t feel happy, satisfied or fulfilled and take responsibility for fixing or changing them. You’re not always responsible for what happens to or around you, but you have all the power in deciding how you respond. You get to choose if you are a victim or a victor, you get to decide wether or not you allow another person to have the power to determine your future, you get to choose who writes your story. ⠀

My experience taught me that I was wasting the opportunity of a lifetime waiting for the opportunity of a lifetime. So, don’t wait to start living, stop wasting time in situations you don’t belong in and start living like your life depends on the things you do because you know what? It does. ⠀

I love you all ❤️❤️ #LevelUp🚀

You will always grieve. You will always miss that person and some days are better than others. Here is what I wrote that I felt like perfectly summed up how I feel about losing someone because they passed away. - “The day someone dies is never easy, but what is more difficult is the time after the chaos has settled. When friends and family go back to their own lives and you are left alone. Still grieving and trying to wrap your head around losing that person. That is when it’s the most difficult and you never really stop grieving. The pain just starts to settle. It becomes a part of you and because of that you can go weeks or months feeling ok, but then it hits you. The pain and grief never really left. You just know how to live with it instead. Because of this I’ve learned so much, but if i could go back in time and change it. I would. Idc what i’ve learned. I would save you in a heartbeat. I would rather have you in our lives than knowing more about myself. Since your death I know what it feels to lose a love one. To lose them to suicide and to see what happens to all your loved ones grieving over you. I know and I’ve learned, but if I could. I would change all of that. I’d be weaker because of it but Idc. We would still have you. I would change it all to just know what your life would of been like. To see you grow up, have a family, and grow old. To look back on memories and laugh. To reminisce, but now. Now all I can do is miss you. Feeling like everything is left unsaid. Cut short before it even started. I’m not mad at you anymore. I was never really mad at you to begin with. I was just confused. I missed you. We all miss you but I can thank you for one thing. For being in my life and for giving me that chance of knowing and loving you. I will never forget you.” - Forever and always. ❤️ - Always check up on your loved ones. ALWAYS.

I've talked with my parents, and we've been over the design many times. And this is the final result. Theres going to be a few tweaks, (I won't reveal them for the fear that someone will take my tattoos originality away) but I will completely show it once its done. -
-
The tattoo has a lot of meaning. I want to write this now so I never forget. -
-
The watercolors in the back represent the color that my family is able to bring into my life, even through my depression. It represents the excitement, yet the blue and purples remind me of the fight with depression that I won. (Blue is a depressing color)-
-
The anchor represents the feeling of safety and security that I have when I'm with my family. The feeling that no matter where I stray on the journey of life, I will always have a place to come home. A place to keep me anchored to my family. -
-
The infinity (∞) represents the never ending love that my parents and sister have for me. It represents the endless help, support, love and care that they've had throughout my life, even though our worst fights and greatest hardships. It represents a love that will never die, no matter what happens to any of us. -
-
The roses represent my favorite flower. For me, its the flower of prosperity. It is the flower that I received on everything birthday, every celebration. My graduation, my prom. The symbol of love. -
-
The rope represents the unity between myself and my parents. For their advice, their guidance, and their care about my future. -
-
And, "I'm proud of you." This phrase is rarely said by my parents. They're hardasses, but I turned out amazing because of it. They tell me this once I've truly earned it. Once I've achieved a goal, or done something amazing. -
-
It is a phrase, that no matter how old I am. How amazing my life is. how much I know that my parents are proud. Its a phrase that whenever it is said to my, by my mom, or my dad... I burst into tears, even writing this. -
-
And with my mom being ill, and my dad being so concerned its gotten harder for me to hear it.-
-
This tattoo holds so much meaning to me. I can't wait for it to be on my arm forever.

Pretty much at a lost for words right now. It really hits home when it happens to a friend you know personally and in an area where you grew up and have family. I grew up going to this beach and have been to @martells_tikibar multiple times. This could have been any one of us, or my 20 year old nephew who lives near this town and goes to point pleasant with his friends. I feel helpless sometimes because videos like this surface almost everyday only for it to keep happening. I’m so angry, hurt, and frustrated with how America continues to treat people of color and it has to stop. Thankful that he left with only bruises and scratches because we all know how this could have ended.
Details below of what happened to my friend @jay_soserious below: “Racial profiling at its finest (worth an arrest?)
This took place at martell's tiki at point pleasant yesterday.
This all started over an employee accusing me of stealing a plain slice of pizza when I paid for it and showed my receipt.

He and his mum are driving home to Dallas, Texas. I got to spend the evening with my own family (wine and mac’n’cheese as per our trio tradition) this evening and I’m grateful for such a supportive and ultimately tumultuous time as my 100 days of happiness ends. This is my seventh (I think?) round of 700 days of gratitude. I always get so much more out of this dervish than I could ever imagine. It helps me to balance what happens in my day to day versus what my mind has the capacity to inflate it to be. It was very sad to see Reece go, but ultimately I knew this chapter for both of us would end and he would find himself heading back to the States and rejoining his family and friends back home. I’m so lucky to have shared a home with him for the past six months (!!!) and support him as best I could with his goals, both long term and short. I took this photo last night at the end of a Young Professionals Mixer, as I begin a new chapter of business ownership with the diner — we celebrate two years running @thespatuladiner in April — and my career change three+ years ago to become a public servant and join the world of public libraries. I am also beginning another independent venture with @northernatlastarot and beginning my deep dive into tarot readings and literary passions. Endings are scary and unpredictable, but there’s something liberating about them as well. Ultimately I feel lucky, I feel secure in the belief that I’m on the right path, and I recognize those support systems around me that have shown me love and compassion and care as I’ve made my way to the place I am today. Miss you already @reeceeverett03 and I hope you know I am supporting you wherever you go from here 💗 #100happydays #gratitude

I have so many thanks, but especially to my coach and friend @militzafitnessifbbpro who took care of everything, she was my mentor, psychiatrist, and more... Oh God! Poor thing! lol 🐠🐟🧜🏾‍♂️🧜‍♀️ Thank you @brockyurich for supporting me and pushing me to do this, and I’m sorry for everything...everyday he had to deal with my different personalities 😱🤯🤬🤗 🙊❤️ .

@gk2179 for booking everything and making sure that I was ok. And coming to Miami and Guadalajara to support me. He went thru hell with my 1000 moods these last couple couple days. Lol 😫😰🙃🤪😓🤗🤮🤢🤕😴😵😲🤷🏾‍♂️ .

To all my clients that understood that this is very important for me and have supported me, sometimes I was very tired and hungry. They had to deal with my moods too...lazy trainer! They know that I’m a hard worker and never lazy. Thank you !!! 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾

Thanks to my family for always believe in me❤️❤️❤️

🙏🏾 I hope to give you guys good news tomorrow, but no matter what, afterwards I will eat the shit out of everything that I can find. Lol.🥇🏆 .

One more thing,
To transform your body the way that I did, it’s not for everyone, it takes a lot of discipline, dedication, resistance and persistence!
I hear so many people complain about their body; IM SO FAT, IM SO SKINNY, IM SO OUT OF SHAPE. But just a few of people are willing to do the work, to this extreme. The life style is hard, but it’s not impossible! If you are not willing to make the sacrifices, STOP complaining and embrace how you are!

I’m heart broken for my grandmother, father, and extended family today. My grandfather passed away yesterday in his home surrounded by loved ones. He is survived by his wife, 12 children, almost 50 grandchildren, and 8 great-grandchildren. The first picture was taken at my grandparent’s 50th wedding anniversary and reminds me of all of the years they were blessed to share and their incredible example of enduring love. I wish I could’ve been home to say one more goodbye but am so glad that my grandfather was able to meet Calloway in January and am grateful for the pictures we have to hold that memory. He was a hard and stern man at times but soft and compassionate as well. My fondest memories are of him calling me “Reedo the bandito” 😂, telling me to “keep my eye on the temple”, family gatherings/testimony meetings, his unexpected sense of humor, and his love for vanilla wafers. I don’t know what happens to us when we die but I know that he believes we live on and can be with our families forever and that is comforting to me. I love you, Grandpa Walker. Thank you for your example and legacy and know that your posterity will love and miss you always. ❤️

I've been two months living in Peru. Two months living in a different house, a different city, a different country.
It has been two months to stop living the news only to hear from far away what happens in Venezuela.
From two months here, I have to thank God above all, also many people, Peruvian , Chinesse and Venezuelan. They have helped me to feel that the place where I am now, it's my new home.
It has been two months missing my family and friends that I left there but I found the great opportunity to meet and convert new people into brothers of the world.
I've been more than a month discovering how agitated and very active Lima is, the kindness of its people, the convulsive of its streets and its new words that often make me feel strange. Already two months of having completly changed my life. The days have continued to pass, and with them, the opportunities have come. The life that God has given me today, has led me to grow, to continue dreaming, to achieve goals, to enjoy what happens to me, even it is not something that stay forever... Sometimes to fail, but always to moving forward.

GRATEFUL.
.
Practicing gratitude, regardless of the season you’re in, is one of the greatest skills you can learn. It’s easy to feel grateful when everything is going well for us, but when we have a grateful heart, even during the midst of our storms, this develops character. Not only that but you will find that when you have an attitude of gratitude during the hard times, you will walk through that storm much much easier. We cannot control what happens to us, at all times, but we have COMPLETE control over our reaction to it. Practice saying what you’re grateful for every single morning, when you first wake up. This will set you up for a grateful heart throughout your day.

What are you grateful for today?

As crazy as it sounds this experience changed my life for the better:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It inspired me to travel. It taught me to let go. i was forced to realize that I’m not in control of what happens to me ...Most importantly, it showed me that every good thing in my life is a gift! I’m not entitled to these things and they can be taken at any moment- a lesson I needed to learn.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We all go through shit in our lives. The key to happiness doesn’t lie in what happens to you but how you view the situation. It’s taken me a while to get to this place of inner peace and happiness and I’d be lying if I said everyday was easy. It’s not! But one day at a time. One small victory at a time will lead to nothing but greatness! With that said in these last 6 months where I’ve had time to reflect on my life, I’ve come up with 3 things to me that have been vital in my search for healing and happiness. 1-GRATITUDE- wake up every morning with gratitude. Really observe your life. Your every breath. Your bed. Your home. There is so much we can be grateful for!
2-FORGIVE- forgive those that have hurt you. Those that have lied, cheat, or steal from you. Let go of any ill feelings and realize that people have their own demons. It is not a reflection of you but of themselves when they act unkindly towards others. 3-LOVE- now this is one I struggle with! I know I know. Most of you that know me personally, are saying to yourselves that I love everyone and you would be right. The problem is that after being hurt so deeply, we become afraid to allow people back in! The answers to this is and always will be LOVE! Surround yourself with it. Family and friends that truly love you will help you see that it is ok to be you once again. It is ok to feel deeply and to be just the way you are. Eventually those holes in your heart start to be filled with new memories, more GRATITUDE, more LOVE, and more HAPPINESS than you thought was possible! LIFE IS GOOD and getting away this weekend and being on my own with my thoughts was the best thing I’ve done for myself in a long time. Shout out to my amazing team @betancourtnutrition for all they do and facilitating an amazing experience!

So this is something I have debated for a long time about whether or not I should share.
But I feel it is time for me to open up, there’s no easy way to write this so I’ll just be straight up.
I have multiple sclerosis. I was officially diagnosed in October 2017, but had a first “attack” August 2015. For those who don’t know, simply put MS is an autoimmune disease of the central nervous system, interfering communication between the brain & body- It’s more complex than this, but for the purpose of simplicity that’s it in a nutshell.
What happens to me? MS is different for every individual. The main issues I have had are sensory and fatigue. Sometimes it feels like I am walking around with a wet blanket on me & I can’t concentrate- heaps annoying when you wanna train legs.
How I found out? I had a random heat sensation in my right leg & side of my abdomen and I was very weak. I had a constant brain fog, that no amount of almond milk macchiatos could fix!
How am I treating it? As there is no cure (currently) The medication has come a long way. I currently take an oral medication twice daily. I also follow the Best Bet Diet as a nutritional therapy. I take 10,000 IUD of Vitamin D per day plus some other supplements.
Why am I sharing this now? I feel like it’s my duty to support other young people being diagnosed with MS. I know when I got diagnosed I looked for others like me, I wanted to know It was OK. I wanted to see healthy, young people with MS living a full life. I feel like I have a moderate reach on social media & want to share my journey whilst promoting health & wellness to manage such a condition.
I didn’t want to tell anyone at first out of fear of being judged or losing people around me. I got burned- 2 weeks after the diagnosis my BF at the time broke up with me… So my mental health took a hit as well. I spent Summer building myself back up with the support of some friends, family & work colleagues.
9 months later, I am still here and want to create awareness about MS, I want for others to know it’s ok & you CAN live a full life.

This statement is what I've been thinking within my mind after the pageant because I know that everything happens for a reason and If it is not really for me then I just need to accept and be contented on what God has given to me 😌

I really thank God for guiding me in this journey since day one up to the last day of the event ☝🏻 And also to An, Carmella, Mekailla, sir karl, the faculties and delegates and to my family and friends for helping and supporting me all the way. Without them I guess wala ko ni abot ani na punto so thank you guys and I hope I made the whole Aggienistas proud! AMDG! 💚💙 #FASMIN2018

My dog looking deep into my eyes begging me to remain the reclusively private person that I have been for many, many years. Unfortunately I got some news Today that shook me to my core over a legal issue I have been involved with since 2010. Yes, almost 8 years ( please put that into perspective ). How much has your life changed, evolved, etc...in 8 years? As each year passes I’ve always maintained, ‘I’ve made it this far, just keep going’, however for the first time ever, I think that I may just be ready to stop fighting. When something very catastrophic happens to your family, and you put 110% commitment into something and you see all of it unraveling right before your eyes, there comes a time that you realize you’re not fighting the ‘good fight’. The good fight is non-existent when you are dealing with crooked people, crooked organizations, and the same organizations that abuse their positions. So I’ve attached a hair bit of my 8yr fight on this post, a smidge...it really doesn’t even scratch the surface, but I am tired of being silent to the people that admit to their wrong doings, yet have managed to continue to distort, abuse, misuse and mischaracterize everything that I have fought so hard for. I will be doing a bit more research on stats and what not, but where I am at today is unbelievable...I will share more, as my situation doesn’t look too positive, if I can do anything, I want to be the face of being screwed and laughed at by corporate fraud. More of my story to come💚in the meantime, rich or poor, ask yourself, do you know who’s handling your money? Have you asked all of the questions I didn’t know to ask? And thank you @lindenberger for writing the original story that’s brought much awareness on fiduciary duty •

This has by far been the hardest few days of my life. I'm beyond heartbroken to have lost the strongest, most selfless woman I know.

For anyone who knew her, you know what an inspirational woman she was. She was wise beyond words, never had a negative thing to say, and genuinely treated every person she met with insane amounts of love and kindness.
I'm so blessed to have had her be such a big part of my life these last 30 years. She's taught me so much - the importance of family, to always be thankful for everything and every moment, and no matter what happens to always love and forgive.

A piece of my heart will forever be broken with her gone but I know that heaven will be a better place now that she's there. She was truly an unbelievable woman who lived an incredible life.

Love you more than I could ever put into words. Rest in Paradise Bubby ❤

This past week has been exceptionally challenging for my family and me. We tragically lost my cousin in an accident that took place at Horseshoe Bend. Zack lived an extremely full life for his 33 years. He packed in adventure, laughter, God, family, friends, optimism and was always enthusiastically available to talk about life. He was on his way to start a new chapter in his life, however God often has different plans for us, which sometimes seem far from ideal situations. Unfortunately, it takes loss for us to stop and refocus on our priorities. Happiness and positivity are not circumstantial, they’re a choice. We can’t change what happens to us, but we certainly have the power to wake up and face it differently. Sometimes it’s one very small step forward, but progress is progress. Thank you to all my family and BFFs for being there in your own unique ways. You know who you are. Love you ❤️

My family, My strength 🌅🌏💪 Where life begins & Love never ends... 😍Alinie and Her Mom 😊

HATE SPEECH IS PART AND PARCEL OF A SECULAR SYSTEM (4/4) 🍒🔊
The nature of secularism is that it will continue to divide humanity into the haves and the have-nots, spreading discord wherever its tentacles reach.

We urge the Muslims to stay away from such hateful speech, however it comes to them. Do not give oxygen to the hate of the haters by sending it onto others, even in protest at its contents. At the same time, do not complain only of the one saying the hate filled words, but look to the system which raised him and encourages his hatred every day.

قَدْ بَدَتِ الْبَغْضَاءُ مِنْ أَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَمَا تُخْفِي صُدُورُهُمْ أَكْبَرُ “Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is far worse.” [Al-i-Imran:118]

Finally, while standing up against injustices and the unjust, it is possible that one is subjected to some harm or hardship, just as it is possible that such difficulties come to those who do not stand up against it. In all cases Allah (swt) is in control of what happens to use. We call upon Muslims to remember to put their trust in Allah (swt), following His (swt) Shariah (rules) to the letter, not swaying from it out of fear of the imagined consequences.

وَإِن يَمْسَسْكَ اللَّهُ بِضُرٍّ فَلَا كَاشِفَ لَهُ إِلَّا هُوَ ۖ وَإِن يُرِدْكَ بِخَيْرٍ فَلَا رَادَّ لِفَضْلِهِ ۚ يُصِيبُ بِهِ مَن يَشَاءُ مِنْ عِبَادِهِ ۚ وَهُوَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ “And if Allah should touch you with adversity, there is no remover of it except Him; and if He intends for you good, then there is no repeller of His bounty. He causes it to reach whom He wills of His servants. And He is the Forgiving, the Merciful.” [Yunus:107] 😊💞💖

When we speak of forgiveness, we are most often speaking of forgiving others. We tell ourselves that forgiving others of the wrongs they’ve committed against us is a gift to our own peace of mind.

We tell ourselves that forgiving others of the wrongs they’ve committed against us is a gift to our own peace of mind. And we’re right. But what about self forgiveness? What happens to us when we don’t forgive ourselves? Watching Billy’s last message yesterday (because he absolutely deserved to be heard) broke my heart for so many reasons. His love for his family, his accomplishments, his talents, his light, and - most tragically - his future were all dimmed because he wasn't able to forgive himself. It made me think carefully about my own self forgiveness. While I’ve definitely walked down the daunting and painful journey of forgiving others, I’ve made forgiving myself almost unnecessary. I’ve told myself that I don’t deserve to be forgiven for my mistakes and my shortcomings, I just need to change and do better. I know now that Billy also felt that and the pain of that can become unbearable. I wish that Billy knew that he was already forgiven before he was even born. I wish Billy knew that, even on his darkest days, he could be redeemed. I know that Jesus forgives Billy. He's forgiven all of us. I pray that we know that we are truly worthy of that forgiveness and accept it for ourselves. 🙏🏽❤️ 🙏🏽  #billyknight #gobruins #suicideprevention

This was back in Nov 2016, I had left my job to go full time after my ambitions, things were going smooth I was so close to hitting a target a previous mentor said was impossible and in my immature eagerness I made one mistake and everything was gone all I was left with was £79 (this is a ruthless industry I’m in). Everyone that knows me knows how hard I had been working for years prior to this happening.
______________________________________
My mindset was simple, first take ownership for my mistake (never blame others) second I’m going to make this the best thing that could have happened. You ain’t going to catch me crying, complaining or having a woe is me mindset no matter how bad the setback is, I’m a firm believer that as a man it’s my duty to be the mental and emotional backbone of my home one day, so if my children see me approach all adversity or obstacles in life with optimism, confidence and speak the outcome with full conviction then work towards it they will grow up with that same mindset. I’m always telling everyone before aiming for money or material things aim to become the person you would want your child to imitate.
_______________________________________
Anyway this experience showed me that my character wasn’t right, I needed to improve on my skill in my craft and mature more as man in general to go where I am destined to go. I’ve always been told “Don’t let your skill or talent take you places your character can’t keep you”. This was a massive blessing in disguise and I used it to sharpen up in every area, from my craft to even fitness and wouldn’t change anything if I could go back. Have to give the biggest thank you to my family (including close friends) that had so much patience, gave me room to have full focus and kept my life drama free.
________________________________________
I share this ultimately to say trust me no matter how far the setback was how dark season is there is always a equal or greater opposite. Stay positive, optimistic and keep grinding towards your desired outcome. Life is 10% what happens and 90% how you react to It.

A standalone romantic comedy of epically awkward proportions, from New York Times bestselling author, Emma Hart.

Imagine this.
You’re ready to leave after a one-night stand, and you’re figuring out how to—shock horror—leave your number and ask him to be your fake boyfriend for your sister’s wedding this weekend.
When he wakes up.
Well, that happened to me. And over coffee and omelets, I found myself a date.

Which was how I ended up arriving at the wedding with a guy I knew nothing about.
I didn’t know his last name, or how we met, or how long we’d been dating. I didn’t know where he grew up, what he’d majored in in college, or how many siblings he had.
I sure as hell didn’t know he was Adam Winters, hotshot hockey player—and not only my father’s favorite player, but my little nephew’s freakin’ idol.
Which means I’m in trouble. Big, big trouble.
My mother is suspicious, my sister is bridezilla on crack, and my grandpa will tell anyone who’ll listen about his time in Amsterdam’s Red Light District.
Four days.
I have to keep this up for four days, and then Adam and I can return to our regular lives, where we don’t have sex whenever we’re alone and my family aren’t interrogating him over his intentions with me.

At least, that’s the plan.
And we all know what happens to those.

Regrann from @withhopeuae - One direct relative of mine suffers from chronic Clinical Depression, another from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), a third from Dementia, and a fourth from a mixture of disorders including Borderline Personality Disorder. Being a caregiver to loved ones with mental health challenges is a daunting task and a heavy burden.
I’ve had no support and no resources here to help me. It has been, and still is, a one-man battle against the demons of fractured minds. I’ve had to conduct my own research into what my loved ones are suffering from. Part of the process was to seek advice and treatment for them from outside the country, a task made doubly difficult when the people I’m trying to help do not necessarily opt in for treatment.
I’m glad I have the resilience and patience to be there for my family, but I can only imagine what happens to others who do not have the support structure or capacity to face their struggles with mental health. The fact that these illnesses, alone, are heavily stigmatized and not viewed in the same light as physiological conditions means that the entire mental health industry is substandard to the point of redundancy.
Just being a caregiver to loved ones with mental health challenges has probably resulted in Stress Disorders of my own. So, to those who are fighting their battles alone, I pray you are instilled with patience, strength, and guidance.
I have genuine hope that future generations will have better mental health awareness and infrastructure, and that we will have a society that doesn’t label any person with a disorder as crazy while automatically dismissing their possible needs for psychological care.

I am at my strongest (in body, in mindset and in spirit, unfazed by what happens to me but ablaze with what I can make happen for myself, for my family and for others)... I am at my healthiest (With cholesterol down 55%, sugar down 32% and weight down 60lbs, I feel invincible)... I am at my most beautiful (I didn’t always feel this way about myself. Working on myself in the last few years has given me renewed self-confidence and self-respect that comes not from the way others see me, but in the way I see myself and most importantly, in the way God sees me)... I am at my happiest (Finally living an authentic life that is filled with so much peace with my life choices and with so much love for others and most certainly, for myself)... I can honestly and humbly say I am at my Best today. I THANK YOU all for being part of my journey in life and for all the lessons I have learned in pain and in joy. I am grateful in equal measure. I thank God for his faithfulness in my life as he takes me from glory to glory. Apart from my God, I am nothing.
I am renewed, recharged and ready for you 2018, to claim My Best Year Ever 🎉🎊 #HappyBirthdaytoMe #HappyBirthdaytoMyPapa #Reflections #BestYearEver 📸@sweet.escape NYC, Fall, 2017

This might not be a popular opinion, but I'm going for it anyway. That balance thing we all at some point try to grasp and hold on to for dear life? Impossible. Seriously! It's exhausting trying to hit a moving target. Because that's exactly what it is: on any given day, under any sort of circumstances, the bullseye you're aiming for is going to look different from the day before or the day ahead because guess what friends? Life happens. In the middle of the work, despite our careful planning, our precarious balancing act, life helps itself to center stage. Sometimes you just have to laugh, right?! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I don't have the magic secret that's going to get that teeter-totter perfectly level balancing life and work; but I've done things in my life that make it less balancing and more prioritizing, and have managed to still absolutely 100% give myself to my family and my business. Sounds pretty much impossible, but it's not friends. I want you to have it too!! Chatting on IG Live on Monday with @monsoleilweddings ALLLLL about what all of this means & CANNOT WAIT.

A year ago today (left) I woke up in the hospital with a shattered ankle and a broken heart 💔. My injury is still raw and pretty difficult for me to talk about. I was interviewed about it last month and unexpectedly burst into tears. 😬 My heart still hurts from being sidelined at the games while my team competed and just from what I have to still deal with ankle wise everyday. It’s not fun! A year ago today, I started on one of the most physically and mentally painful journeys I’ve ever had to deal with. It’s definitely been a year full of ups and downs!
I’m not to the point yet where I can look back and say I’m thankful for this set back, but I’m hopeful that day will come ☺️. I am firm believer that everything happens for a reason, even when life just doesn’t seem fair. Over the last year, I’ve gotten even closer to my family and friends who gave up so much to just be there for me. They saved me! Over the last year, I’ve also leaned on God and he has been so fruitful. My marriage has grown, my faith has grown, my business has exploded and I’ve learned to wake up and be thankful for the little things... like simply walking and being independent.
The picture on the right was me at regionals a few short weeks ago! I never imagined I’d be competing at regionals again! It was a blast! I know my journey isn’t done yet and I’m so hopeful for what God has in store for me! Being happy is a choice and I choose to always see the good in every situation. Cheers to another year of growth and healing! #Oneyearlater #transformationtuesday #godisgood #brokenanklegains #brokenheartgains #choosehappiness

In this past week I have learned that I need to let those emotions out and be at peace with myself which is extremely hard for me to do. My family and friends have let me know that no matter what happens in life/ what I do in life there are going to be emotions, bad and good, I’ve been dealing with the bad ones completely wrong with letting them eat at me without taking control of it but now I’m understanding that I can not do that and have to let them out. To my family and friends I thank you ❤️ very much for having my back, letting me release my demons without holding it against me but most of all showing me love through this hard time!!!!

I’ve thought long and hard about sharing this publicly because it is a very personal story. As a woman who had choices and as a woman who supports women and their right to choose what happens to their bodies, as a woman who has experienced carrying a child and bringing him into the world with all the support in the world...I must speak. I had an abortion at 32 years old. My now husband then boyfriend and I just weren’t ready. We had just met and had been dating. We were both out of work actors on the auditioning hamster wheel. We were not stable financially. I had dreams of a family but not just yet. It was not right for us, for me. And when I say me, I mean that I knew I would have to make sacrifices and I just wasn’t ready. Fast forward a few years. I’m now on a show in its second season and on Election Day. Yes. That day. I find out I’m pregnant. Now married, now financially stable. And still, the worries of how to juggle career and family, still they consumed me. Fears of how the industry would see me. Fears about how my show’s producers would treat me. Would I be supported. Would I be understood. Would they understand physically how demanding carrying a child, breastfeeding a child and working tv hours at the same time would be. All valid feelings. In my line of work, we aren’t given maternity leave. So there I was, 6 weeks after birthing my son, back on set. Working. Juggling. I had overcome one of my biggest fears. I was now able to be the kind of mother I wanted to be. Able to give my child the best of me because I was ready to me a mother. And I was still able to do what I love. Tell stories. It was challenging and by god it still is. But no one, no government, no religion has the right to tell me or any other woman when she should take on the sacred role of mother, be it a first time or second time. And as I look at my son every morning, I am so grateful I waited to meet him, my King. If you’ve wondered what life was like for women in America before Roe vs Wade click the link in my bio. A women’s right to choose is at stake. (If you feel the need to be negative go for a run instead). #brettkavanaugh #neveragain

Not that it was our vacation of choice…but it was the vacation we could AFFORD.
When I grew up, I decided to take my kid camping.
When Austin was five years old, all our neighbors decided to go camping, together. So, I bought a tent from Walmart, sleeping bags and a Coleman cooler.
We headed out to the country and were the first ones to get to the campground. I was SO PLEASED with our one-room tent and our cute little campsite. It was just adorable!
I really felt special… UNTIL everyone else showed up!
You see, my neighbors camped regularly and they really KNEW what they were doing! * Their huge tent had wings that popped out to form separate bedrooms on either side.
* They brought chairs and made the center section of the tent into a living room!
* They set up poles in the front and surrounded their table and chairs with screened walls, creating a dining room!
* They had twinkle lights, Coleman lanterns, and these big forks for making s’mores!
It’s funny, I was totally happy with what I had… until I saw what somebody else had!
That's what happens to a lot of us. When we get the new job, we’re SO EXCITED until we find out that Bob makes 10 cents an hour more than we do!
Now, we’re grumbling and dissatisfied with the VERY THING we were content with a minute before!
We have to stop comparing our lives to others because COMPARISON is the CONTENTMENT KILLER!

Be happy that you woke up, have two good legs, a home and a family. Be CONTENT that you can worship freely! Jesus died so that we might ENJOY our lives!

It seriously blows my mind that something I worked hard on years ago still continues to make it’s way around the world! 🌎

I now have 3 of the 7 physical copies of non-English versions of my book, Will It Fly. These are the copies from Taiwan 🇹🇼, Poland 🇵🇱 and Romania 🇷🇴, and other countries are coming soon.
The best part about this is that I’m already seeing messages come in from readers of these books in my inbox, from those who have read the book, taken action and have already seen some results. It makes me so happy!
So happy, actually, that I’m happy to announce that my next new book is under construction right now, and is planned to be released sometime in 2019!!! 🙌 🎉🎊 Now, whether that actually happens or not, we’ll see, because I still have terrorizing memories of what it was like to write and publish Will It Fly. Yes, it’s that hard!

But thanks to my family, friends, fans and faith, I know I’ll be able to get it done.
Thanks for all of the support #teamflynn - you’re amazing and inspiring! 👊

Chapter one is up and free to read for everybody, and chapter two will be up soon (if you're a high-calibre Patreon at the $6.66 level or higher, you can hear me reading chapter two right now). I guess it's what they call grip lit - a kind of murder mystery focused on what happens an Irish family when the secrets they've been holding on to for their whole lives begin to unravel. A lot of it is inspired by the conversations I heard around my grandmother's dining room table, in the shadow of the war, over a cup of Lyons tea, in the presence of her old typewriter ❤️ .

Yesterday I had a lot of fun at the Homestead Gatherings event of @backyardfarmsph where we watched a kitchen demo by Chef April Ihata, who also just happens to be the very cute mom of my friend, @kayegarcia13 ☺️ We learned to make healthy versions of Japanese dishes like chicken gyoza, chicken and Eringi mushroom sauté, chicken katsu with curry sauce and Nagoya style fried chicken wings, all using @backyardfarmsph antibiotic free, hormone free and pasture-raised chickens of course 🐓 Yum😄 Admittedly, I am not much of a cook, but I’m so happy they invited me anyway because now that I’m a mother and actually responsible for someone other than myself (and still breastfeeding!), I have become even more aware of what I put in my body, because taking care of myself is my commitment to my family 💚 Also, because I need to make up for all the junk I put in it in my 20s 😭 So I encourage you all to do the same. Health really is wealth people, so take a closer look at what you’re buying in the grocery. Seriously, not all chickens are bred the same way 💚 Thanks for having me @backyardfarmsph and thanks @fooddudeph for letting me be your cheerleader during the DIY exercise hahaha 😆 hurrah, we won!😆 💚 .

The first time Rick publicly prayed at a weekend church service for people living with a mental illness, his words were simple. He asked God to bring comfort and strength to anyone living with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, or any other mental illness. He asked God to reassure them that their pain and suffering mattered to God and to their brothers and sisters, and to remind them that as a church family, we would do all we could to offer support to them and their families.

The response from the congregation was astonishing. As he stood on the patio following the services, dozens of men and women who were living with a mental illness, or who loved someone living with a mental illness, lined up to give him a hug and to thank him for bringing their struggle into the light. Many spoke through their tears about the deep gratitude they felt to hear mental illness mentioned from the pulpit in such a loving and positive way. “I’ve kept my illness a secret at church,” several said. “I didn’t know it was okay to talk about it.” That simple, grace-filled prayer instantly changed the atmosphere at Saddleback. Those few short words, lovingly expressed, made it infinitely safer to talk openly about depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, schizophrenia, and suicidal thoughts. Chains of hopelessness were broken, and walls of stigma, misunderstanding, confusion, and prejudice began to melt away in the face of recognition, acceptance, and love. People began asking the questions they had been reluctant to ask before: Can a Christian experience a mental illness? Does it mean I don’t have enough faith? Is it okay to take medication for a mental illness? If I pray hard enough or study my Bible more, will it make my anxiety go away? Can children have a mental illness? What happens to Christians who take their life?

Saddleback Church has always been a welcoming, inviting congregation to anyone in need, but it has become an even more compassionate place as we’ve expanded our conversations around mental illness, listened to the stories of those living with a mental illness, and learned what we can do to more fully support individuals...

What Aretha has given to the world cannot be priced by a dollar sign or any form of human measurement. She has allowed us to feel something greater than the eye can see. So many times I’ve cried alone in my bedroom with a pain no friend or family member could console. But, somehow, Aretha’s voiced healed me. It was a gateway to a freedom that I couldn’t access on my own. Every night before a show, I would listen to the Sparkle soundtrack or Amazing Grace album just to be reminded of the magic.

I always wondered what it would feel like when this day would come. When the voice you grew up with and was there for you since you were a toddler all the way up adult years was suddenly gone. Another portal to the other side has been closed. I think it becomes upsetting because they are only a few people on this planet that can help the rest of the world experience a real hope and power. When you take these individuals away, where does that leave us? What happens to the world after Aretha is gone? We have no choice but to look to God. He was the feeling behind every chill and magic Aretha accessed for us. She is no longer here to do it for us. Now it’s our turn to seek the Maker.

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

I went to coffee with a dear friend yesterday that knew me in my SAHM life... back when I posted multiple times a day and was workin fashion and mom-life like a boss. Now that I have a day job (for which I, ahem, get summers off 🙌🏻), she asked if I missed all the fashion and talking about it and social media. My answer was a very quick no. I motioned to my dress and said, “No, because I’m still doing it. I still dress in what I love. And the social media - I don’t miss the stress of posting something every day.” I do miss you Insta friends. Working in an elementary school doesn’t leave a ton of time to chat with people. The “cute dress!”, “I love that necklace!” in passing definitely happens. But those deep why we dress the way we do conversations... that’s what I miss. So, although you may not see me here much, I’m still out there doing what I do... getting dressed in clothes I love every day, going to a job I LOVE, and coming hope to my family a better mom and wife because the choices I make are filling me up rather than sucking the life out of me. I hope you’re out there doing the same. ❤️ #alitegsays

This year I race in Pro-Am Ski Lites - it’s a best class where I have ever competed. Very hard, competitive, you always must push to the limits!
Starts with Top riders and competing with them side-to-side - it’s a real challenge!
Iam 13 in overal, but Iam really glad that compete here.

In Freestyle I managed to win a 3rd round of European Freestyle Championship quite easily and without problems. But in Superfinals I was not able to show everything- nerves pinned me and my foots was out of footholds in combo - that’s all put an end to the victory. So Iam second, again... Congrats for Jordan Aspinal @ja.freestyle

Also want to congrats our team and Illiya Vasylenko @ilya.vasylenko.12 with 2nd place in Junior Spark 11-13! Keep pushing bro!
I want to say thank you to Ijsba Europe for this awesome competition. Thanks @Icemaninstagram for a promotion of freestyle in Europe and World - you are rock bro! Thanks @leestone1 for a rubber for exhaust manifold - without which I could not perform. Thanks @badr6613 for a nice mood, trust in me and help! Also thanks to @kuba_panak and Thomas Wolf for help with some parts!
Big Thanks to @Sickerling for his words. It’s more than any Cups and Titles - moment like this motivate you to work harder! Thank you, Legend!

Also thanks to my family that make this euro finals happens for me! It was unforgettable!

Thanks to my sponsors - Motul @motul for a high performance and beauty of my skis; XTRM @xtrm_sportswear - fro awesome clothes; Tj Products @Timverhey81 for my rebuilded and nice works engine!

LISTEN VERY CAREFULLY. THEN ONCE YOUVE LISTENED, LISTEN AGAIN. THESE ARE CRIES FROM BABY GOATS. BABIES WHO ARE BEING SLAUGHTERED. BABIES WHO HAVE TO DIE BECAUSE YOURE TOO SELFISH OR LAZY TO EAT A PLANTNASED DIET. TO SELFISH TO STOP TAKING THE LIVES OF OTHERS.
Today, my brave friend @ethically_elizabeth and other activists bore witness and went undercover to expose the truth of what happens to the animals you eat before they die. They are treated horribly. They are literally just babies, scared to death, then their throats are slit. When you consume meat, you are literally consuming the fear, the pain, and torture they endured. Why would you want to put such horrible things in your body? Why would you want to contribute to the torture and death of innocent babies? .
Please, listen again to this video. Please, I'm begging you, for the animals, please just STOP eating them. STOP being so selfish.
If you need help, DM me.
#choosecompassion #govegan from @ethically_elizabeth - Sometimes, while bearing witness, you really connect with an individual. You lock eyes and there's a shared sadness between the two of you. It's as if they suspected something horrible is going to happen to them and seeing you confirms it. It's hard to describe unless you've experienced it, but it really shakes you to your core, knowing that just minutes later, their throat will be slit and they will bleed out onto the kill floor.

This little goat and I shared a few moments together. They stood there, looking at me and me them. I watched as his or her friends and family members were backed into the unloading area and herded into the murder room. I peered into a window of the facility and saw these terrified individuals bring brutally stabbed and killed by slaughterhouse workers. I saw their bodies hanging in shackles, while their family members watched, awaiting their own death. As workers stabbed and butchered the animals, they laughed, taunted the babies and made jokes about them "crying for their mommies". The victims’ screams and the horror show I witnessed inside the murder room will haunt me forever.

This photo was taken just a week after I found out that I was HIV positive.
I was at the doctors office + I remember feeling like my life was over. Sht, I wanted to end it faster. I was at my best physically, emotionally + mentally until I had this brick thrown at me. I was exhausted with the infectious disease physicians harassing me for the names of people i’d slept with + pressuring me to get on medication. I was overwhelmed as I had started a new job the day after I found out + continued teaching my classes. I never stopped to deal with it, until I moved to Texas.
This morning I woke emotional thinking about my weight gain, my family not being here with me + my diagnosis. BUT GOD reminded me of how far i’ve come because I KEPT MOVING. How far i’ve come because I trusted him + how blessed I am to have the support from each of you. As I sit before I meditate in the space for my event today, I feel empowered + in control of my life again. I believe that no matter what happens to us, we can overcome. We can be powerful again + confident in our future.
It’s ok to stop + deal with death, sickness, lay offs, stress, tragedy + disappointment but it’s never ok to stay there. Keep moving, keep pushing + keep believing in yourself.

Last time I was with @natalienorton was in Greece. Here we are on Mars Hill in front of the Parthenon in Athens.
I remember several months ago when I was in Nashville, Tennessee and I got an alert that a ballistic missile was about to kill my family within minutes.

I don’t know what’s worse...knowing your family will die in minutes or knowing your family will die over days. ;) No one died then. We aren’t gonna die now.
One time in Boise, Idaho I saw some graffiti of a cockroach and a Twinkie holding hands. They were depicted as the only survivors of the apocalypse. #accurate.

We’ve had several personal apocalypses in our lives. You may have too.
Humans don’t make it out alive because of processed ingredients or evolution. We actually don’t always make it out alive at all. We are fragile.
Each time we’ve experienced a heavy tragedy or a potential tragedy, we actually sometimes want to die too. We want to shrink and fade away. That’s human.
What makes humans great isn’t our ability to survive like a Twinkie or a cockroach or even a Twinkie cockroach or cockroach Twinkie (I hate typing that as much as you hate reading it, but I couldn’t help myself). What makes humans great is our ability to thrive DESPITE the risk of not being able to survive.

Tragedies bring humans together. It’s a terrible, beautiful thing. If you feel like you don’t have anyone in your life to hold you up, I’m sorry. Not gonna sugarcoat it like a Twinkie. That’s hard.
Sometimes even the biggest and greatest leaders feel alone. Loneliness doesn’t mean people aren’t around you: it’s more complicated. Right now @natalienorton is alone and probably lonely, but somehow she’s hanging in there. Our biggest pains in life aren’t always what happen to us, but what happens to others. If you’re alone or lonely or scared or having a hard time, consider this: it’s a tunnel, not a cave. That is advice I read somewhere in a grief pamphlet after my son died. Tunnels end...but you HAVE to keep walking. Love you! - Richie (don’t know why I signed it, but it felt cool doing it). 🤟🏾🤙🏾🤷🏽‍♂️🤷🏽‍♀️🌪🌊🌋🚀🎉🐅🤷🏽‍♂️😘😘😘 #richieandnatalie #hurricanelane #nortonsdostuff #ruckuslist

So this post has taken a lot of courage and has also made me proud AF that where and how far I’ve become!!! Especially mentally this year!!! Now Mental health is real! There’s only a handful of people who know my story but here it is!
I’ve from a early age of being a teenager always delt with anxiety and fear of failure, Dropped out of school at 15yrs old because partying, the social scene and surfing were more important! I got a job straight away at 15 years old and 22 years later still do what I learnt and love to be a chef / pastry chef . As the years past my anxiety was ruining my life and around 22yrs old started to feel depression sink in with the anxiety!
The only way I knew how to deal with this was to self medicate with alcohol and recreational drugs! About 3 years ago I walked in to my local Gp (doctor) and just let it all out!! Brokedown and told her everything, was so nice to get it off my chest and have someone to listen! Now loved my doctor she was lovely but like most doctors they hear your story say your just depressed and then give you a script for anti depressants! So what did I do? I took them! What did they do? Sent me absolute bat shit! So after 3 different wrong diagnosis I have OCD (OCD) is a mental disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), and behaviors that drive them to do something over and over (compulsions). Often the person carries out the behaviors to get rid of the obsessive thoughts.
So this is what happens to me daily, weekly, monthly, yearly!
Now the gym has saved me it’s my sanctuary it’s my time out and my time! This pic is after a lot of hard work and dedication, I would love to thank @nick.cottee for your guidance and support through being a great Pt and mate, my mates you all know who you are, my gorgeous wife @ezcox my beautiful sister @sarahbartrop for all your phone chats and our family love for each other, @kingdom.gym for the best gym in Sydney and Australia 🇦🇺 @anytimefitness @im.gym #mentalhealth #ocd #mentalhealthawareness #gym #healthymind #heathlylife #fitness #fitnessmodel #tattoos #beardedmen #hardworkpaysoffs #itsokaynottobeokay #speakup

Who gets to decide what your health and life is worth?
Despite on going, worsening, crippling symptoms that suggest the most sinister problem, I've been told 'if you request a smear, we will reject it because you are not 25' despite already finding polyps attached to my cervix.
I'm 23 years old, an adult, yet unable to control what happens to my body and have access to medical help. I've paid taxes, never burdened the NHS but my health is being ignored for the sake of 2 years.
I've paid almost £190 in prescriptions since January to be told I'm on my own or will have to pay more money to go private.
Why am I not old enough to request a smear test when I know my body? If my health isn't a priority then my parents request it, my siblings request it, my boyfriend request it, my family request it and my friends request it. 1 week or 7 years is too long to wait when it comes to Cervical Cancer symptoms!
Please sign the petition!! Girls, you know your body! Do not settle for no, I definitely will not. ❤ #AmbersLaw #CervicalCancerAwareness #Smear #LowerTheAge

~
I've spent the better part of the last three years living and working with some of the most talented artists I've ever met. Dancers, singers, musicians who have reminded me that I don't have to spend my life trying to be anyone but me.
~
They challenge me, they inspire me, they love me, and I love them.
~
Tonight we step onto a stage together, dancing for the last time to this beat. And I can't help but feel nostalgic for the present moment. Life never happens the same way twice.
~
So I hold everything with a little more love, let my eyes linger just a little longer, and kiss every moment like an old friend saying goodbye.
~
Because at the end of the day, we are always saying goodbye, in ways great and small. So of my future self I beg:
do not waste any more priceless time on worthless things. Stop playing so small or waiting to live into the joy.
~
Do not leave a single moment, with love unspent or unspoken.

To my family and cast, I love you.

Our responsibility is to our own citizens.

I think about the following story. A man has a big mansion on a several-acre property. One day while he is patrolling the grounds with his son in a golf-cart he comes across a terrified teenage woman with a baby. He decides to give them a room for the night and feed them before figuring out what the situation is and how to help her. The son is puzzled. Why are we spending money on food for them? Why not put the baby in a cage and the mother in a separate cage, perhaps with a live video feed that says “This is what happens to trespassers?” Why don’t we take care of our own family? Why not save the money that you are spending on these two for my education?

The father answer: I am spending that money on your education.

And I am taking care of you.
Because my chief duty to you as a father is for you to grow up in a family that cares about love and compassion. I give you food and a roof over your head, but more importantly I teach you what is important about life. The most important thing I can teach you is that all human beings are part of one family. If I teach you anything different I am robbing you of something much more valuable than this fancy mansion, these grounds, and this golf cart.

If we raise our children in a country in which the government inflicts deliberate, irreversible psychological trauma on children who are not citizens we are stealing from them and impoverishing them. #liveandletlive

In the last week or so, I have been sent more farm animal abuse videos, slaughterhouse videos and sad stories than ever. These animals are my life. To me, they are people. They are my babies. When I see goats hanging by their ankles upside down screaming as their throat is being slit, I picture my own GOA babies and I know they are no different. They are just lucky. Most of you have no clue what happens to farm animals. You have no idea how long they sit in feed lots, auctions and slaughterhouses. You don't want to know. You could never handle seeing what they see. You cover your eyes and your ears and claim that your heart can't take it. Your heart? Your PTSD? WHAT ABOUT THEM???? I don't care who I upset, but you do not need to eat animals to survive. Many of you know what happens and you do it anyway. You convice yourself that the animals you eat came from happy farms, and that the animal just had "one bad day". You have no clue. Many of you have no idea how many babies were murdered for your cheese, and how many mothers agonized over the loss of their babies as they were imprisoned. When you order chicken, fish, cheese, rack of lamb or steak at a restaurant, you are responsible for the torture of another living being. You are hurting someone so you can satisfy yourself. You are accountable for that. Trust me, I see more inside those slaughterhouse walls than most of you because I have half a million people sending me every video there is. I don't usually make posts like this, and I am confident I will lose lots of followers but I refuse to be a crowd pleasing wimp. Stop hurting animals. Stop paying other people to do your dirty work. Make the effort to be a compassionate person. Just try, please. This is why I do what I do. I will never stop fighting. #rantover And for the record, I do not hate non--vegans. I'm the only vegan in my entire family and I sure don't hate my family. I just wish everyone knew what they were contributing to. It's very sad to me.

TAKE IT DOWN FOR HIS LOVED ONES, ESPECIALLY HIS MOTHER. This is what happens in my city on a daily basis, I have one thing to say to you cowards, that took this 15 year old kids life away. I don’t know what was the story, doesn’t MEAN YOU TAKE A CHILDS LIFE AWAY. Everybody wants to play the gangsta role, but the gangstas I know take care of their family, protect their neighborhood from harm, praise God, live by morals and dignity. Just because you’re a male, doesn’t mean you’re a MAN. This is why I do what I do, I say what I say & I use my platform for the ones that need justice. Wake up!!! People would rather take out their phone, record a video for Instagram of somebody dying, rather than calling the ambulance. Social media is great to spread awareness, but we need to take ACTION. This generation is lost, some false men want to be gangstas so bad, but you know what’s GANGSTA MR. GANGSTA. God, family, humanity, protecting your loved ones and living by a purpose. THAT’S GANGSTA. The end is near, we need to wake up! #Junior #RIPJUNIOR #JusticeForJunior

Great message i got today, again from a close relative(it's a long one) 😆... *How you react is what determines who you are*

When Abraham Lincoln became the president of America, his father was a shoemaker.
And, naturally, egoistic people were very much offended that a shoemaker’s son should become the president.
On the first day, as Abraham Lincoln entered to give his inaugural address, just in the middle, one man stood up. He was a very rich aristocrat.
He said, “Mr. Lincoln, you should not forget that your father used to make shoes for my family.” And the whole Senate laughed; they thought that they had made a fool of Abraham Lincoln.`` *But certain people are made of a totally different mettle.* "Lincoln looked at the man directly in the eye and said,"
*"Sir, I know that my father used to make shoes for your family, and there will be many others here because he made shoes the way nobody else can. He was a creator. His shoes were not just shoes; he poured his whole soul into them. I want to ask you, have you any complaint? Because I know how to make shoes myself. If you have any complaint I can make you another pair of shoes. But as far as I know, nobody has ever complained about my father’s shoes. He was a genius, a great creator and I am proud of my father"* The whole Senate was struck dumb. They could not understand what kind of man Abraham Lincoln was.

He was proud because his father did his job so well, with so much enthusiasm, such a passion, and perfection.

It does not matter what you do.
What matters is how you do it – of your own accord, with your own vision, with your own love. °Then whatever you touch becomes gold.`` Moral: *No one can hurt you without your consent. It is not what happens to us that hurts us. It is our response that hurts us.* *Ships don’t sink because of the water around them; ships sink because of the water that gets in them. Don’t let what’s happening around you get inside you and weigh you down”* Just something to think about. ♥️

I’m so grateful to be your mom and to be able to watch you grow a little more everyday even though I already miss when you were itsy bitsy. There are so many things I can’t wait to show, teach and experience with you. But what I never anticipated was how much you would teach me. To be patient, to love with my whole heart, that not everything has to be perfect all the time. It’s okay if the dishes aren’t always clean or if I’m not always looking my best because you love me anyways. To enjoy every moment because soon you won’t be my little baby anymore. No matter how late we are or how many things we need to do that day there’s always time for cuddles. Dancing is essential to happiness aka dance breaks. That shit happens, literally. Embrace the weird, the embarrassing and the messy moments of life. And that no matter what happens our little family always comes first❤️

This morning was tough, waking up to a new normal.

No whimpering on the last step of our stairs to get him down, no following me around the kitchen, no pitter patter of tiny dog feet on our floors, no scratching at the patio door to let him out, no filling up water or food bowls & no one sitting at my feet in my office as I work.💔 It’s crazy y’all. I wasn’t even an animal person. Never wanted a dog & used to think people were kind of over the top with their pets but Ty picked out Diddy when he was 9 & the girls were 2. They fell in love with him, my mom offered to buy him as a gift & I got hoodwinked into owning our first dog. It didn’t take long for him to steal our hearts & now I understand it all.
.
.
Today was a rest day in my workout program so I got up & took a walk to the lake. I just sat & appreciated the beauty of everything around me - the stillness & counted our blessings.
Life is tough.
This year has been hard for our family but it’s not what happens to you, it’s what you choose to do when you get knocked down & how you choose to react.
.
This morning, I was intentional with CHOOSING to appreciate the good things.
CHOOSING to be thankful for the 11+ years with Diddy.
CHOOSING to be thankful for a new day.
CHOOSING to be thankful for our family & friends, our health & all of the prayers, love & kind words we’ve received.
.
Excited to see some of my team #bizbesties today & for our new coach call tonight, it’s just what I need to fill my cup up.💕 Thank you again to all of your for your comments, prayers & messages, we sure do feel loved & it’s appreciated more than you know.
.

Hoping we all have a blessed & productive day.

I’ll speak my mind and stand my ground for what I believe in, I believe we ALL as HUMANS live here on earth with IMAGINARY BORDERS, and as a Hispanic I’ll stand up for what is right and if you believe that having these cruel people tear families apart and putting children and infants into these PRISONS, yes prisons cause that’s exactly what these are, then you literally are a soulless person and if you don’t care now about what happens to your brothers and sisters as humans, then when will you? I come from a big family meeting new cousins aunts and uncles all the time and I guarantee there are some immigrants in there but without my family I wouldn’t be here as YOUR ARTIST, and if you support this bullshit then you don’t support ME. I’m sure I can speak for ALOT OF PEOPLE HERE IN SAN ANTONIO DONT BE SCARED TO REPOST AND SAY WHAT YOU GOTTA SAY. A lot of people gotta wake up from your materialistic world where you think you can declare what is mine vs. yours when the earth is OURS, people get so caught up that they are not even realizing what they are doing is actually hurting and effecting other peoples lives. Seeing this woman cry actually gave me tears as I could NEVER EVEN IMAGINE the feeling of having my kids taken away from me putting my self in others shoes on that one but thats what you gotta do to gain a perspective. I HOPE THE WORLD CHANGES FOR THE BETTER! Ps- if your gonna talk about breaking the law, EVERY SINGLE PERSON HAS LITERALLY BROKEN THE LAW WHETHER IT BE AS SMALL AS JAY WALK or as big as ASSAULT, somewhere in between the lines we’ve all done it that doesn’t separate you from me or them as a human, cause in the end we’re all just human trying to survive not kick each other out. Much love I hope instead of some of some of you getting mad you and transform your negative energy to what is good, what is right. Love all you guys no hate please! Thanks @nikkohurtado for standing up as well. #makeearthearthagain

Becoming a mom has changed my life in so many ways. My sun Royal has added a new shine to my life☀️. In December 2016, I brought him into this world at 29 weeks pregnant. I was so unprepared, but I jumped into mommy mode 100% and dedicated my time to making sure that he was 💯 in every way possible. The investment has paid off. Our son is healthy, happy and full of life. Now I can come up for air. This journey has given me a new sense of purpose and motivation. I created a new blog ‘Royals Mom’ that will be launching tomorrow 4/17/18 🚀. I can’t wait to share my tips and experience with everyone. #royalsmom

To battle the ego and overcome the story of what I can and can’t do, who I think I am and who I think I’m not. To push myself to do what I said I would do even when I don’t feel like doing it. Today I ran my 36th 5K in a row. A couple weeks ago I started to develop a new process to enhance the experience. Mile 1 is all about acceptance and what I call “the perfect game.” This is one of my favorite practices, no matter what happens, good or bad, declare it as perfect. And at 5:30 in the morning there are many things in my mind that I’m saying otherwise. LOL. Not getting my 6 hours, not being able to find my headphones, the rain, etc. etc. So I use Mile 1 to practice acceptance and declare it all as perfect. I continue to use that skill set throughout my day with everything else. Traffic..perfect, someone’s being an asshole..perfect, deal fell apart.. perfect. It’s alll good! Mile 2, is time to develop a deep appreciation for everything. As I’m running in Mile 2 I go through the list of everything that I’m grateful for, from my senses, to my family, to my home. I spend an entire mile getting into a high state of gratitude, getting the vibes right for the day. Mile 3, is all about my intentions and goals for the day. I think about my appointments, what’s on my schedule and what I’d like to make happen during my work day. I think about the feeling of progress, and coming home happy to my family after a dedicated days work. I spend this mile thanking God in advance for all of it coming together with ease and flow. 64 days to go. 💯💪🏽❤️ #CoachKevS #DisciplineEqualsFreedom #GrandAC #ProjectMindset #InspiredToMove 6.4.18

WISE WORDS || Some of the best conversations have come from the time we, as a team, spend labeling, filling bottles and jars, and packaging up orders. These team convos have healed broken hearts, inspired new products (and pretty good banter on the soon-to-launch podcast), and connected us in a way that feels like chosen family. This is one of the many reasons I love being any indie brand. Your culture defines your connection. There are no rules. You get to be who you want to be in the world. In running a small business, I’ve latched onto the idea that we must always keep growing. And if I’m honest, it scared me more than it excited me. At a certain point, the growth would be out of my wheelhouse and perhaps out of my control. At that point, what happens to these 👆🏻 moments? What happens to your culture?
.

This is what has inspired me to take SkinOwl ‘the skincare brand’ to new heights. What matters most to me is my influence on the world. Be it the podcast, The Parliament Project, or next week’s campaign (hint hint), I’ve become mindful that growth doesn’t have to be financial to be fulfilling. I’d much rather be rich in the things that matter most to me. So with that, I wanted to end with a thank you. Thank you for giving me the confidence to let SkinOwl soar to new heights. I’ve always had big dreams, but now that my purpose has replaced my business plan, I know the best is yet to come. With every ounce of gratitude, xx, Annie. #whereskincarebecomesselfcare

We had 1 “if it happens, it happens” moment before our wedding, & what do you know? I was 3wks pregnant at the wedding!
🦄I was most surprised by: how much I didn’t enjoy pregnancy & felt disgusted at all of the body changes, which I believe is somewhat to blame on my career as a model 🦄The biggest challenge I experienced: was navigating the “100 percentile” parents, who wouldn’t stop talking about how big & healthy their baby was.. Kennady started as a 10th percentile kid, and was also healthy, but I was made to feel like I wasn’t providing her w/ enough nutrients, & felt guilt & anxiety
🦄The most helpful piece of advice I've been given: you don’t have to give up all of your “old self”, to find your “new self” as a mother. Also, ACCEPT HELP! It’s hard for me to do that, my pride gets in the way & lots of times I say “I got it” even if I don’t.. learning how to say “I need help” is humbling but necessary. 🦄What got me through the hardest times: We don’t live near family, so my husband & I leaned a lot on each other in those first few months, & our night nurse was a God send, teaching me things that no book can explain! Oh, and 🍷🥃 🦄What I want other mothers to know: everyone struggles as a parent, no matter what you may see on social media. We need to normalize the hardships just as much as we do the “perfect moments.” 🦄I wish mothers had more: time off without feeling guilt. I also wish mothers had more affordable resources, child care, and community.
🦄Habits I practice to be a healthy, happy mom: taking time for myself! If I do not take “me time” I cannot give fully to my family. 🦄My favorite self-care tools: Yoga, happy hour with my friends, spa trips & getaways.
🦄most proud moment as a mom: is seeing her hit milestones & accomplish little or big things, knowing that I had something to do with it! Also, that I have taken her on 44 flights, to 14 cities, 10 states & 3 countries. 🦄I challenge @jessakeywork @therealmaryhughes @kristenream @laurawheater @brigittebuckholtz @tara_barnes @lillanash @adesai123 to participate!

Look Up and Beyond isn't some cliche phrase...but my personal lifestyle mission that's become a global movement. It empowers people to live beyond the adversity in their lives so they can live with power, passion and purpose.
I was born in Germany in a tiny town after my Mom couldn't find someone to abort me. I lived a peaceful and innocent life for the first 6 years of my life. Feeding horses, running carefree and helping my grandmother in her beautiful garden are memories I'll forever cherish.
But, life drastically changed one day. I was brought to America and lived with a new family, in a new neighborhood in a new country. This new life was filled with extreme physical abuse, sexual assault, poverty and dysfunction.
I remember being in the 2nd grade, no lie, wanting to kill myself. 2nd grade. Well, after a series years of hardships in my childhood into my teen years, I thought ending my life was the BEST thing to do. After I was raped at the age of 15, I HATED myself even more. 3 suicide attempts in 3 years. The pain was unbearable.
There were no healthy outlets or family support. I was raised in a home where I was taught "what happens at home, stays at home." This really hurt me for many years. I kept EVERYTHING suppressed which led me to be very DEPRESSED.
For a LONG time, I wondered WHY? Why would God allow so many negative things happen to me? How could there even be a God? If there is, He was pretty mean and I wanted NO part of Him. So I walked around bitter. Angry with God. Questioning.

Here's the thing I've learned on my journey. We are not what happens to us. We live in a broken world with broken people. People's treatment towards us is not a gauge of our Creators love towards us. What hurts us. Hurts God. And that's why I believe He promises to work ALL things out for our GOOD. Only God can take what was meant to break us and build us while giving us a purpose BEYOND ourselves. God's love for you is not dependent on people...His love is threaded into YOUR very being!

I have accomplished a lot in life, work, myself, etc. I have grown up to be someone I am proud of. I have been extremely fortunate to do so many cool things and gone to so many cool places.
Although I have so many mixed emotions and feel like I’m taking a step back in life there are also so many positives with change.
I am excited to be closer to my family and my friends I grew up with. I am also excited to see what happens in the next chapter of my life.
There are endless opportunities but the choice is yours.

Life will work itself out... it always does.

ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) has gained the most fame as a treatment for young kids with Autism Spectrum Disorder, but what many people don’t consider is what happens to these young kids when they grow up. Or for that matter, what happens to any adult with a developmental disability when they grow up? What happens if they don’t ever learn to talk? What happens if they aren’t able to independently get a job? Go to college? Do all of the things that you and I may take as a “given” in our lifetime?
Many of the adult individuals that I work with are in this boat and it’s part of my responsibility to provide support in all of these areas. What I’ve found in the near decade of being in this field is that there just isn’t enough education being provided to our care providers (e.g., group homes, family home agencies, nursing facilities, etc) in regards to behavior management.
Behavior management shouldn’t have to be a guessing game and many times, for these care providers, it is! They’re doing the best with what they have and the limited resources that they have access to. Their hearts are huge, but their knowledge on how ABA can help is not so.
I am SO pumped to have the opportunity alongside my co-worker, Rocio, to provide some training on the basic principles of ABA for our adult care providers in August! I am excited to bring some knowledge to the table for them and also learn more about what these staff members go through on a daily basis as they navigate behavior management with their residents.
This training isn’t until August, but I’m so excited that I’ve started the Power Point presentation! I had to submit a title to our training coordinator and I needed one that would garner more interest than, say, 3 people. Lists and hacks seem to be the current “click bait” nowadays, so to keep this topic sexy, we’re calling this training “Top 10 Behavior Hacks for Your Facility” 😂

For things to change you need to change. Sitting here at 3am in Dubai and reflecting. No matter how good or great an individuals life looks on social media there are always personal obstacles everybody faces on a daily basis.
▪️
It isn’t what happens to us that matters but how we respond to what happens to us. In life you could either play the victim game or face what you’re going through with a positive mental attitude and create the change needed to get forward. Over the last 2 years i’ve faced my most difficult circumstances from family problems, financial difficulties to the point of running dry my savings to not being in a healthy state of mind and having the wrong people around me. At times i’ve played the victim game and asked myself “why me” and blamed everyone else except myself for the obstacles i was facing.
▪️
The biggest breakthrough i’ve had in my life since November 2016 after having nearly 0 to my name is that if it’s to be it’s up to me. No one else is going to come and save us and give us everything we need to be happy. If you’re facing some obstacles right now in your life know you can overcome them and the only thing that will stop you is yourself and the environment you allow yourself to be in.
▪️
Most of the time it’s our environment that holds us back, family & friends that don’t support our growth or ambitions. Truth is at times you have to let go or limit your time with your loved ones to get to where you want to be and that can be the hardest thing as that’s where most are comfortable in.
▪️
Growth happens outside of our comfort zones, get comfortable with being uncomfortable, limit your time with individuals and groups that don’t support your growth, have a positive mental attitude, surround yourself with those who support and will help you grow and things will start to change. No matter how times are difficult now, know it will get better, every season has its passing. The winter you’re facing now will come to pass. Keep positive, keep crafting and whether i personally know you or don’t know you I believe in you.

An Ember in the Ashes by @sabaatahir⠀
📕 📗 📘 📙 📕 📗 📘 📙 📕 ⠀
Three word summary: brilliant profound endeavor ⠀

A new favourite author!!⠀

I filmed a 60-Second #booktalk over on my youTube channel (link in bio).⠀

Official blurb: ⠀ ⠀
Laia is a slave. Elias is a soldier. Neither is free.⠀

Under the Martial Empire, defiance is met with death. Those who do not vow their blood and bodies to the Emperor risk the execution of their loved ones and the destruction of all they hold dear.⠀

It is in this brutal world, inspired by ancient Rome, that Laia lives with her grandparents and older brother. The family ekes out an existence in the Empire's impoverished backstreets. They do not challenge the Empire. They've seen what happens to those who do.⠀

But when Laia's brother is arrested for treason, Laia is forced to make a decision. In exchange for help from rebels who promise to rescue her brother, she will risk her life to spy for them from within the Empire's greatest military academy.⠀

There, Laia meets Elias, the school's finest soldier--and secretly, its most unwilling. Elias wants only to be free of the tyranny he's being trained to enforce. He and Laia will soon realize that their destinies are intertwined--and that their choices will change the fate of the Empire itself.⠀

During this 8 week program I ate pizza, had family bagel Saturday’s, ate ice cream with crushed up waffle cones in it, worked out 4 days a week and rested 3. I rearranged workout days, I suffered a loss, I wanted to quit but I never did. Another program completed through Summer break with two kids home, working full time from home beside them, with no grandparents around as the second set of parents.
Through the regular day in and day out every day life things and also, through the unspoken things that hurt like hell too. I had weight loss goals I wanted to reach but my biggest goal was, “just don’t quit on yourself Corene you do everything for everyone it’s your turn”. You may not be able to control what happens to you, but you can control how you react to it.

Truly one of my favorites NYC icons – wood water tanks. What I’ve read about them. There are only three companies in NYC that make them. What is interesting, that all of them are generational and family-operated.  Wood water tanks are better than steel ones for temperature control and keep water from freezing and do not affect taste of water, unlike steel ones do. They proved longevity and some of tanks around New York are almost a hundred years old and still perform fine. When first filled with water, the tanks leak, but once they fill wood expands and become watertight. Well, there are many debates nowadays about risk, involved with drinking from tanks. So we’ll see what happens to them in the close future. I still love them and can’t imagine the city skyline without it. Well, like most of people. I remember having guest reviewer with a water tank tattoo on his arm. #dailyNYCart #dailydrawing #art #artist #dailysketchchallenge #dailyart #architecturesketch #arch_more #huffpostarts #illustration #ink #inkonpaper #nyc #arqsketch #worldofartists #artistic #sakuraofamerica #pigmamicron #arts_now #jenyauzhegova #ilovenewyork #newyorksketch #urbansketchers #klksketchnation

This is what happens when your family can’t wait to dig in...your hand-model aka the hubster dishes out before you take a picture 🤣🤣 Loaded fries aka poutine overload
Layer the following:
Fried slap chips tossed in salt and vinegar.
Cooked saucy steak cubes
Mushroom sauce
Loads of cheese (or cheese sauce!)
Dollops of sour cream (if you have, I didn’t have)

Bake in a preheated oven until the cheese melts and it looks so scrumptious you want to dig right in while it’s in the oven!! Dig in! Enjoy, #Fehmz

Saucy steak:
750g cubed steak
3 tblsp garlic butter
1 tblsp ghee
Salt
Pepper
Ginger garlic masala
1 tsp dhana jeero
1 tsp Steak and chops spice
3 tblsp vinegar
1 tsp mustard powder
Pinch of lemon pepper
Cook the above together until half cooked then add:
1 glug of mustard sauce
1 generous swish of barbecue sauce (1/4 cup)
Julienned robot peppers
Handful of fried onions
1/2 cup chopped spring onions

You can add as much or as little chilli as you like, since we cook to include my 2 year old, we go with zero chilli except what’s already in our ginger garlic masala.

Cook til done. It should not be dry.
Add a nice glug of Steers Prego sauce and mix well.
Add chopped coriander.
Use for baked potato filling, sandwich fillings, pita breads, topping bruschetta, paninis and of course...for this poutine 🤣

How many of us do this? As John Lennon famously said, “life is what happens to you while your busy making other plans”. We set goals for 10 years from now, and are so focused on attaining those goals that we may forget to recognize and celebrate the small victories and the steps towards that goal that are happening right NOW. Special times with friends, or family or a dinner are interrupted by us mindlessly flicking thru our social feeds watching other people’s moments while OUR moment is ticking by, never to come back again. These moments are all special, they’re all important, because this is when LIFE is happening to us. It might sound like a big clichè, but it’s true- tomorrow is not guaranteed, what matters most is NOW. I’ve found so much happiness and fulfillment when I take a moment to enjoy all the things that exist in my life in this very moment. I’m not saying don’t make plans or goals, I’m not saying don’t reminisce fondly on the past, or learn from previous “mistakes”. I’m saying don’t NEGLECT the PRESENT. It’s the most important time we have.

@therecomputing sent me one of their bracelets, which has its construction based on computer parts. I consider brands that reuse materials in creating new products amazing. In addition to being creative, it demonstrates the concern and character behind the brand in promoting recycling and reducing waste. This is critical when we talk about technology, given that every year new devices and gadgets are released in the market and few of us actually think about what happens to the stuff we replace. * /
.
.
/ * I find circuit boards so interesting that I even build up a personal frame with parts of the first computer that I used as a programmer. However, my creativity, attention to detail and talent in this area cannot be compared to the beauty of the goods that @therecomputing display in their online store.
With each piece thought, produced and packed with all the care, there is a sense of originality and individuality in all their products. From jewelry to accessories, this family business has won my admiration. Totally recommend for those who want a quality and quite unique product. * /
