DIAMOND OR STONE
A diamond needs to be cut from the rock, and its not going to be easy to find a diamond amongst a mountain of rock.
If you want a diamond its going to take time. Don't just go around picking up stones because the diamond is hard to find.
Take you time!
Better to wait for the diamond than settle with a stone.
The difference between the diamond and the stone is the stone will do something with you, but the diamond will do anything for you and let the world know how much they love you.
Diamond or Stone?
You can tell the character of a person by the partner they pick.
Sometimes in life we can keep pushing forward and get no where. It’s only when we step back and not push as hard that we are able to get to where we want to go. I’m not saying to give up but sometimes we need to push pause and regroup.
My husband has always wanted to own his own coffee shop. He has talked about it for as long as I can remember. When he had saved enough money he started to pursue it. He researched everything he would need to do and started looking for a building to start his business.
The researching and looking for a building took 2 years. When he had finally found a building he liked and thought would work he was so excited. I could tell he couldn’t wait to get started. Unfortunately his offer on the building wasn’t accepted. He was devastated since he couldn’t find another building around.
He spent every minute he wasn’t working looking for a new building or researching what he could do.The stress of this entire process was getting to him and having an effect on our family. He knew he needed to put his dream on hold until a building came available. A week after he took a step back from pursuing his dream he saw an ad for a coffee shop manager. He figured he would go for it and this way he can learn some more about running a coffee business. He got the job and started working for a small local coffee shop.
My husband spent two years working hard as the manager of this coffee shop. He still dreamed of opening up his own shop but he knew it wasn’t the right time. He loved working in this coffee shop and even though it wasn’t his place he treated it as though it was. The owner saw this and caught him completely by surprise one evening when she asked if he wanted to buy it and take the business over.
We were both completely shocked. Of course he said yes and we started the process of taking over the coffee shop. My husband is now the owner of his own coffee shop and I couldn’t be more proud of him. It may have taken longer then expected but he never gave up. He may have stepped back and pushed pause but sometimes you have to step back to go forward. #steppingback#lessons#taketheleap#followyourdreams#dontgiveup#takeabreak
Let’s argue 😆 MY MOTHER IN LAW IS BETTER THAN YOUS!!!!! #notupfordebate our kindred Gemini spirits just sync and we get Shit done. She always has their best interest at heart, and she makes sure that our little family village is run in tip top shape. She’s also the reason I’m not running around like a chicken with my head cut off her lessons keep me grounded. She teaches me and I watch and listen. I couldn’t ask for a better MOTHER. Her kind spirit and continuous smile through EVERYTHING she does never ceases to amaze me!

Welcome to Phipps Speaks where I aspire to inspire by sharing some of my authentic self with you. This week I focus on Failure, major take away. Know it’s okay to fail! Everyone does it, we are not human! Often times people only share success stories, but cover up the failures that led to them. Don’t be ashamed of that loss be proud of it and own it! Each failure is a chance to learn and grow!
These two bracelets were retroactively given to me for winning my two @worldpokertour titles. They had an upscale celebration at @Bellagio where they presented all champions one bracelet per win. They are made of metal and feature a tiny @Tiffanyandco diamond in the center of the spade. How fancy!
I will never forget when my Grandfather calmly said to me, you can marry a rich man
just as well as you can marry a poor one.
I didn’t understand what I do now about that statement.
How it lacked self-love and suggested I seek something outside of myself for stability.
The fact is that he wanted a better life for me than what he had created for himself in some ways. It's funny...
We want others to see their beauty, but we forget to see our own. We want someone else to take care of us, instead of learning to care for ourselves.
We don’t want to compliment ourselves when we feel beautiful because the fear of vanity, but we are just fine putting someone else on a pedestal of beauty.
My Grandfather meant well, but he was wrong. He was teaching me to move beyond valuing myself. Through conditioning he was boxing in my power, worthiness and value with the belief that I needed a (rich)man to sustain me.
A whole generation functioned within this mindset and he could not see beyond that viewpoint. It was a fearful time and most definitely a scarce mentality driven culture.
We no longer have the time to stay asleep and peer out of outdated lenses.
We can no longer keep our light hidden behind another human beings.
Nor can we use another human as our Lighthouse for self-acceptance, inner- knowing and rescuing.
No one but you is your Guru. They are souls on the same path as you. Life experience, the desire to end patterns, and live within states of bliss- is what they began focusing on. Their viewpoint started focusing on the SELF. So how can you become like them if your viewpoint is off yourself?
When you feel immense love for another, you are seeing yourself.
You are aligned and there is no resistance in feeling the vibration
of unconditional love.
So if I am being authentic and honest, I am done with the acceptance of the idolization of other humans. Stop it.
Take them off your damn shrine and replace them with a picture of yourself. Love them for showing you truths and
helping you along this beautiful journey. But stop putting them above yourself.
It is not vein or egoic, it is self-love. And that is what “Enlightenment” truly is.First love you.

okay so today i had an AMAZING art lesson. it was so cool. here’s what i managed to get done in the 3 hours, drawing from scratch and adding some colour! angles were really hard and that bloody clock face..... but hey we try!!
Do I look like I was #crying ? To be truthful I was. .
Crying is NOT a sign of weakness. In fact, I believe it’s a sign of #strength . Even more so, when you can share that with the world. #letmeteachyousomething 😘
Crying, for me, is an energy release. A means to cleanse the eyes & the #soul , of the heaviness one is holding in. When I cry, I know I’m on the cusp of a new transition. And expansion is on the horizon. One of the gifts of being in the dark. (#metaphorically speaking)
The past couple days have been trying. (#medically ) The past couple of months? Yeah, they tried to break me... but I’m still here, reaping #lessons , #knowledge & shedding layers.
I feel as though I’m being pushed through the eye of a needle. I know on the other side, as I plummet through- is all the #ganz . So one would think, then don’t worry just get through it. That’s easier said then done & this phase cannot be rushed. It’s in the #manéucha of it all, where we learn so much about ourselves annnd yes others too. .
It’s where the fire 🔥 gets lit under you. Where alllll of life’s tests are thrown at you & only you can decide what’s worthy of the fight that lay ahead. What are you willing to do?
How far are you willing to be pushed?
For how long will u continue to choose, sadness?
Are you willing to transition?
Shed & #shift .
During this stage, you have an opportunity to decode the conditioning you’ve been held captive under. While I HATE the hard stuff, I know it’s necessary! .
I call this phase “a rebirthing” & while I deeply understand the stages, I still question why me, why now, as we all do. Hello, 🙋🏼♀️#human 👈🏼
We have only 2 choices during these #trying moments of our lives..
1> let it break you and learn nothing
2>#learn , #grow , #expand - lean ALL in & let it redefine you in all the BEST ways possible! .
I’ve been leaning all in. It’s been hard, scary and uncertain- but I’m still #grateful , for I know at the end of it all- I will be reborn!
Signed... I’m on the cusp, & im comin’ for ya🙋🏼♀️💖😇

A few months ago I defined what I wanted in my life, very clearly, for myself and the universe.
3 weeks ago I was driving home from yoga and suddenly felt smacked in the face by a sign “look up jobs online.” Weird because I LOVED my life and career exactly as it was, but I trusted this intuitive push anyway. .
Found my dream job. Applied. And 2 weeks later I got the job. This week I’m living and breathing it. Perfectly in line with my intentions, my business, my entire projections for what I wanted in my life.
Set out what you want. Be specific. Be clear. Don’t take “no” for an answer. TRUST. .
3 weeks ago my entire world looked different to how it looks (& feels) now. .
Your intuition and energy are everything. Radiate. You are a magnificent magnet, if only you knew and trusted in your power. .

Do you guys ever wake up and feel like things are already off?
I had a weird dream last night that left me disturbed.
Then the day followed with things going wrong.
And I just cried.
I wanted to stop crying because why cry?
It was only 10 am and I always already feeling overwhelmed.
But I didn’t.
I realized I wasn’t crying because the day was off (because we all have our shitty days). I was crying because so much has been going on that I haven’t been given myself the chance to sit with myself and let go.
Crying to me is honestly the best therapy. The most healing tool. It’s a gift.
I haven’t cried in so, so long. Like a real good cry. I needed it.
At one point, I didn’t even know why I was crying. I started thinking of how the whole day has been so negative, yet these “negatives” were so small. I noticed my mind blew them out of proportion. Nonetheless, my emotions, my feelings were and are valid.
We, humans, tend to do this - dismiss our emotions because it’s the easiest thing to do.
We forget our emotions exist to nudge us and show us what we need. To remind us of the bigger picture.
I needed that cry.
Sometimes we do. It’s not bad. I find it so healthy and detoxifying.
If you guys find yourself with a lot emotions and can’t find a way to let them out, just cry for a few minutes. There’s nothing wrong with that and it is so magical.
We are magical human beings ✨
So it’s my birthday. Here’s what I’ve learned my 29 years here on this earth: 1 life is hard, but it gets easier with someone you love. 2. People aren’t perfect, no need to hold everyone to a certain standard. 3. You’re not always going to agree with someone, and that’s fine. 4. Showing compassion is not weakness. 5. If someone lets you down over and over again, its okay to cut them off. 6. Be the person that Mr. Rogers thinks you are. #birthday#mybirthday#redlands#sanbernardinocounty#advice#lessons
