We all mess up. Taking the time to acknowledge our mistakes and the hurt we may have caused our partner (no matter how inadvertent) is key to repairing your relationship. Be accountable for your part in the situation - we ALL have a role to play in any conflict. What's yours? How do you acknowledge it and take responsibility for those missteps?
A solid, genuine apology will go miles to repairing the damage. A good apology follows the general formula of acknowledging the ACTION you did (lost my temper, snapped at you, etc), then the IMPACT to your partner (i.e., your partners feelings, show empathy) and never uses the word “but” as it negates everything you are saying.
Men, listen... The Oct 22, 2018 Red Table Talk with Will Smith, Part I.
This level of conciousness, awareness, selfawareness, this willingness to own up, to do your inner work, to show up again and again and again... that is what we're looking for in a relationship, this is it. This is sexy as hell. Bring yourself to the table like this and I will be damn interested for sure, I promiss. And I will bring mine, my light, my love, my strength, my very best to keep shining and eccelling, nothing less.
(I ain't saying women don't have some work to do, we do, but we have already been gathering, have gotten a heafstart, to find strength in sisterhood, calling eachother out. We had to for our survival.)
This coming Saturday and Sunday 27 & 28 Oct from 10am till 4 pm ... Focus on Woman Expo will inspire, empower, educate, connect and entertain women in the Bay of Plenty Region.
YogaTribe ®️ will be present with a full house of products & Coka Klug will be sharing an introduction of how to use Yoga as a Healing practice to heal yourself. Saturday 1:30pm and Sunday 10:30 am ... come and join us...
Confession time. I, Lauren, dislike beets. There, I said it. I feel like I'm eating dirt every time I try to eat beets. That is, until I found out about beet sauerkraut. And because it's fermented and doused in garlic, ginger and tumeric, I actually ENJOY eating beets.
You can make this beauty too:
1 head of cabbage, shredded
3-5 carrots, shredded
3 beets, shredded
1 Tbsp salt
Garlic (to taste, I prefer my jraut to repel others so I usually go for 5-6 cloves)
Ginger (again, to taste)
Turmeric (to taste)
1 Tbsp Apple cider vinegar
Massage the crap out of these until the cabbage becomes translucent (or use a kitchen aid mixer with a hook to do the hard work). Put in jar, let air out daily and let it do it's thang until it's fermented to your taste, then move to fridge.
So proud of my dear friend Niklaus Lange on his latest short film, "My Dad Was Contacted By Aliens" which screened at the Marina del Rey Film Festival last night. A powerful and intimate story of when your hero believes in something you can't. Big shout out to James Zucco for his amazing illustrations and the phenomenal score by Alfred Montejano... Check out the Trailer here: https://vimeo.com/270005964
I lifted this pic 😉

I moved into a new villa the first week of July and thought up this easy do it yourself, temporary home improvement project. For whatever reason the faux ~ mosaic mirrors really bothered me. Perhaps it was the factory made “soul~less” aspect. Anyways, I thought that making a border made up from post cards would be a fun solution so I got a bunch of post cards and double stick tape. I wanted to do this before my niece’s arrival in late July but alas, it didn’t happen. Finally two days ago I made time for this project.
Here’s the interesting part of this tale: I realized there was something to the fact that it was a MIRROR I was embellishing. I began to be aware that perhaps I was avoiding this project because I would have to look at myself in the mirror while doing it.
And here’s the kicker: the day I started on this project I had just watched a video that Simon Jongenotter of New Earth Cooking School @newearthcooking and Zest @zestubud had posted as a comment to a fb post. It’s called 101 East ~ Indonesia’s Most Polluted River.
And it was VERY hard to look in the mirror as I placed those picturesque postcards of Bali on the mirror. The shame and grief welled up. I apologized to the earth for how I had taken a part and how I continue to take a part in hurting her. ✨
I channeled my grief and shame into activism and continuing to wake up from my slumber. Yesterday I re~sketched a sketch I had made twenty- seven years ago for a good bye postcard for my contacts on Seventh Avenue when leaving my job at Glamour. Check out my Instagram story for more info on these. Thank you kind staff of The Ritz Carlton @mandapareserve for the extra pots of hot water for my tea.
Stay tuned for more postings on the sketches and the paintings they will turn into.
Remember Tesla! Stellar post @Kristina.bodhisattva We have many reasons to thank Nikola Tesla when it comes to modern technology, but had capitalistic greed not stood in his way, Tesla’s contributions to society could have gone significantly further. Tesla created a plethora of inventions, with the goal of transmitting energy to the world at little to no cost.
Tesla initially created his Tesla Coil in Colorado Springs on Pike’s Peak to experiment and test his idea of creating a wireless power grid for the world. There he was given free power from the local utility, as well as funding for his lab. At his Pike’s Peak lab, Tesla could test his theory, creating electrical arcs that were essentially man-made lightning, that could be seen for miles. Tesla proved that with this invention he could wirelessly power lightbulbs.
The energy was created by traditional means and cost money to generate, but Tesla’s tower intended to make it possible to transmit the power for free by creating a channel between the Earth and the ionosphere for anyone to tap into. Aside from needing more money to accomplish this, J.P. Morgan was threatened at the prospect of free energy. After all, he was a titan of his industry in copper, a major conductor of electricity, as well as a capitalist whose work centers around profiting from others.
From Russia with love ❤️
Having been in the travel industry for many years and been fortunate enough to have lived in 12 different countries - people and cultures will always fascinate me! ~
Since becoming a speaker and delivering keynotes internationally, I’ve been intrigued by different audiences and if certain cultures will react differently to the story shared and how it’s told. ~
Obviously in certain situations I will speak a little slower and modify some of my vocabulary but generally I have found that cultural differences don’t make any difference to the power of a story and it’s relation back to everyone’s own personal/professional life. Ultimately, as human beings, we’re all the same. The same hopes, needs, dreams, insecurities and fears.
It was an absolute treat being hosted by the wonderful @linklatersllp (Linklaters Russia) in Moscow.
I loved sharing the story with the internal team as well as the women of the #linkwomen network. Thank you for looking after me so well and for breaking my Russian stereotype!
Everyone I met was warm, open, friendly and expressive.
It was my first trip to Russia a few weeks ago and I loved it! I very much hope to be back soon.

•Topic Tuesdays• ✨Intuitive Eating✨
Principle 6- Discover the Satisfaction Factor 👅 .
Satisfaction gets so little air-time in our modern society but boy oh boy when you discover it, there’s no going back. Satisfaction is really the glue that holds all of the components of Intuitive Eating together. The encouragement of striving for satisfaction and pleasure from eating is one of the most stark differences between Intuitive Eating and dieting. When did your last diet or set of food rules encourage you to have foods you enjoy and get pleasure from? Likely never ❌. When we eat foods that we don’t actually feel like or tune out when we’re eating, we’re more likely to have lower levels of satisfaction and thus feel the need for more. The body might have been eating, but the mind wasn’t. .
When was the last time you took in the whole experience of eating? From choosing the food that you felt like, to the anticipation of having the food, to the sight and smell of the food on the plate, to the texture, volume, taste and sensations of the food in your mouth? .
Have you ever seen a baby having new a food for the first time? Can you just imagine her, staring intently at that slice of avocado 🥑 ? She then picks it up, squishing it between her fingers, all the while not letting her attention drift for one moment from the eating task at hand. She pops it in her mouth, making sounds of pleasure as she experiences the flavour. .
Now of course I’m not saying that you have to go to that extreme every time you eat to be able to get satisfaction from your food. But there are a few fun steps you can take to inch closer toward a more pleasurable experience;
1. Ask yourself what you actually feel like eating. Be curious and leave the self-judgement at the door.
2. Create a pleasurable ambiance (where possible). Sit down rather than standing. Try a little music. Or perhaps eat with a family member or colleague... or maybe alone.
3. Tune in with the sensations of eating. Notice the appearance, aroma, texture and taste.
4. Check in with your satisfaction halfway. Maybe something’s missing? Could it use more sauce or fats? A little pepper or salt?
