This is one of my favorite photos of us. 😍 I just love being his mommy.
I recently shared a post about my journey of becoming a mom to this little one. Click link in bio to read for some inspiring & encouraging words.
I haven’t posted my #thankfulness so let me catch up -
✅ Caffeine - especially those Iced Caramel Macchiatos from Dunkin’
✅ Home-cooked meals
✅ Clean drinking water
✅ Doctors, nurses, nurses aides, housekeeping, and other medical staff/professionals
Looking at the picture on the left, I can remember all the anxiety I had when I got dressed that day.
The panic, irrational emotional behaviors, and stress it involved was monumental. And the body dysmorphia was riding high!
I am so grateful that we chose to embark on a health journey.
The changes we’ve made in our lives with our nutrition and fitness plans have been unbelievable.
Every day isn’t easy; but it’s a helluva lot better than it was a year ago.
And when I’m having a rough day, I remind myself of this: ⭐️⭐️You gotta do this for you. This is for you. This isn’t about anybody. Live for you. Honor you. Never lose sight of that.
Foundation: Abundant Living & Finances
How can you BE LOVING with yourself and this foundation?
Love yourself enough to make choices that feel good! Say no to what no longer serves you and a hearty HELL YEAH to what you desire in your life.
This takes time... BE LOVING.
Practice a daily habit, pause before you make a purchase or a commitment. Keep your calendar and spending habits based in LOVE.
Love yourself right where you are.💚
Too many people spend money they earned, to buy things they don't want,to impress people that they don't like. --Will Rogers

In people and in yourself" #vinatipoetry .
I am beyond humbled and blessed to share with you all that I will be assisting and co-teaching a 200h yoga teacher training with my teacher Bruce Greenwood of Align Yoga. This coming January, Bruce and I will bring you a top-tier training that will not only inspire your own growth and understanding of yoga but will allow you to firmly grasp the language and expertise to share that knowledge with your students. Align Yoga Teacher Training is an alignment based training with a strong emphasis on anatomy, effective cueing, safe adjustments, and practical sequencing. This training teaches the value of questions and exploration while still honoring tradition and lineage. Anyone can enroll, regardless of your intention to teach. If you feel called and curious, please join me November 25th, 6pm, @innergy__ for a Q+A session. Or DM me any time. 🙏🙏

How do you take a bunch of ordinary guys and turn them into world changers?
First of all, let's get one thing straight-- ordinary people are the only kind of people there are.
If you think successful people were born with something special that you don't have, your dead wrong. No one is inherently better than anyone else.
So how do you turn average people into world changers?
It starts with a basic understanding of how God created us. When the Father designed humans, He hard-wired us to live by one essential element-- faith.
God talks, revealing the incredible story of why we are here, how to prosper, and what the future holds, and we BELIEVE what He says.
When we see where we fit in the story, that forms our IDENTITY, which is the foundation of all we do.
So, to answer the original question-- you turn ordinary people into world changers by SELLING them on their place in the story.
You SELL them on the backstory, our redemption through Jesus, and the advancing Kingdom of God.
When we IDENTIFY where we fit in the story, our confidence, motivation, happiness, and focus develop, and we are ready to learn HOW.
Notice how Jesus called the disciples. He didn't teach them how to have a better marriage or convince them to show up at the synagogue more often.
He SOLD them, with John's help, on the fact that He was the Messiah, the One initiating the Kingdom of God.
Then He SOLD them on where they fit in the story. Before they ever heard a word of teaching, they were ALL IN, eager to listen to every word Jesus said.
If you are stuck in a cycle of survival, now is the time to get out. BELIEVE the good news about the King and His Kingdom, and find out where you fit in the story.

We have to be courageous enough to get rid of the fears in life, change our mindset, have faith and go for it. Sometimes when we ponder on an idea for too long we second guess and change our mind, only to continue doing what's easy and comfortable.
It's time out for fear.
Take risks, believe in youself! You are not where you came from. You have blossomed into someone others may not recognize. Change the way you think, being confident in what's already yours. .
You got it!!
This message is so powerful!! Time and time again I am reminded that FAITH is everything! When I have FAITH I finally have FREEDOM from that FEAR that kept me stuck, frozen, stifled. When I feel as if I am a living example of the movie groundhogs day I ask myself is there an action I need to take but I haven’t done it yet due to FEAR... then I focus on finding the courage to take that action. The courage comes easily once I have anchored myself in FAITh...
If one advances confidently in the direction of one’s dreams, and endeavors to live the life which one has imagined, one will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” Thoreau
You can’t un-know what you now know. You can’t unlearn what you have learned. You can’t go back to sleep, once you’re awake.
When you tap into the heart of a matter and it’s glaringly obvious that the essential truth of what you VALUE, NEED OR DESIRE is incongruent with what you’re actually experiencing, it can fucking hurt.
But woman, you’re not broken. You’re just waking up. I promise, you are braver than you realise. You’re on the path. Keep going.
What are you waking up to now?

Sometimes when I light this baby up my mood begins to brighten. It let's my body know that it's time to be still, to be in silence and to connect to the deep luminous inner wisdom that lives within me. That totally make's my day! Because doing these small rituals makes my soul happy. Releasing any energetic ties to situations, people or whatever makes me feel free. I'm open to allow beautiful and divine high vibing energy in. It also let's me take a look at what I'm allowing and not allowing into my life. Seriously. This may look differently for everyone and that's totally ok. Honor that. Do what feels good to you, to your soul. There is no wrong way just your way and that's more than enough. Sending you many blessings beautiful soul. ❤
I’m noticing people perpetuate patterns they claim to hate or end up in situations they’ve always dreaded. When We take steps to make a new life or forge a new path, barriers will pop up left and right. Maybe it feels like everyone was fated to repeat maladaptive patterns and self-sabotaging mistakes. And that’s because we are creatures of habits.
Our brain creates neural pathways from repetitive thoughts and behaviors in an attempt to be efficient and make those things easier. And after some time, they become our default way of functioning.
When these thoughts are based in doubt and fear, they are even harder to change. On some level, they are serving a protective function for us. Brain washing yourself with positive affirmations is one of the ways to outsmart yourself and support your change goals.
Get very clear on your own values and motivations for this change.
If you feel confident about it, you’ll be less susceptible to others’ opinions. Some people in your life would prefer you stay just as you are. It is more comfortable for them if you remain your same, predictable self. Listen to your inner child and become your higher self.❤️✌️ @lions.on.fire
