When you try to cancel your evening plans due to being tired and grumpy, but your friend comes anyway and drags you out for a walk and brings you a Pez dispenser. Priceless. Thanks, Nadine. 💕 #walk#friends#changeofplans#exercise#thankful
Our plans have changed once again. We wanted to check out all the cute towns in CA and Oregon and only managed to see a few. Turns out with all the fires comes a ton of smog, it's normal apparently at this time of year but for us islanders who have never experienced smog before we're heading home in a few days instead of the week we planned. However such is life and this adorable house we spotted in Willows CA is for sale (just wish it were I'm Victoria ), might be a sign to go back home to our willows beach. Can't fight nature!
Chp really know how to screw someone’s day over 😂 this sure as heck screwed my project up 🤬😤 Sunday July 22 got pulled over for no front plate and left with this bitch of a ticket #justmyluck#fml#changeofplans#mulhollanddrive
The road to the Grand Canyon was blocked because of a suïcide attempt and threat of fire so we went on a tour at the Arizona part of Route 66 and flew over the Hoover Dam! 🚁#changeofplans#familytrip#USA
So I drop Camden off at preschool. Plan to “work” in the church parking lot while sissy sleeps. 😴
Mtown—NO service of course 🙄
Oh wait! I have a free Starbucks drink & they have WiFi! Proceed to anderson. 😅
Get drink... parking lot FULL. 🙄 Drive to Hobby Lobby’s parking lot... ya know, out in the back where I don’t look super creepy. 🤦🏻♀️
Take picture of my “office” today to post something inspirational. 🙌🏻 Suddenly, I hear little movements 😳
Use my camera to look in the backseat to see some baby blues peeping at me with the biggest grin on her face 🤣
Life lessons today:
- We make plans and God laughs. - You can get a lot done in 5 minute increments. - Coffee is LIFE esp when it’s FREE!! 🙌🏻
- Babies don’t appreciate a good nap.
- You can always go home 💜 We visited Uncle Gary, Uncle Bob, and played with the new babies on the farm. - Home grown food is the best. (I can hook ya up if ya want some!)
- A little rain can be cleansing... in soooo many ways. 💜
Most importantly, choose to embrace the unknown with JOY.
As mentioned on a previous post, Amy is a planner. She’s been the planner, organizer, and navigator for this trip, while Anthony has been the driver, chef and car trunk tetris champion.
Yesterday was a tough day for Anthony with a long drive and the skies blanketed in a haze that obscured what we’re sure is beautiful scenery. The orange glow caused by smoke from this year’s wildfires took a mental toll and we were bored and tired far earlier than normal.
I’m sure you can imagine Amy’s face when we found out that our planned stop for Tuesday night had been evacuated due to two large wildfires nearby.
We stayed at a campground just outside of the main area of Prince George to reasses and plan (!) our alternative route.
We’ve decided to change our route and now we’re continuing north on Highway 97, rather than turning west onto the Yellowhead Highway. The air is much clearer here and the blue skies have boosted our spirits.
📸: We noticed the smoke getting worse as we left Barkerville, and when we woke up this morning, pur tent and car were covered in ash and debris. Once we continued north on Highway 97, we could see the border between smoke and sky. By the time we reached Whiskers Point Provincial Park, we had nothing but clarity as far as we could see.
Am I the only one that sees the derpy face here?! 😂 Belly laughs brought to you by the La Verne cinemas. Change how you look at things.. it might just make you giggle and maybe even change your perspective on your situation, I know it did for me! We were supposed to watch the new Mission Impossible.. but it turned into late night convos and necessary mindset shifts. It's sometimes better when things don't workout! .
Moving is exhausting and things never go as planned. Yesterday all of our stuff was supposed to arrive so the movers could unload it today. Instead, we got half our stuff since both containers wouldn't fit in the driveway.
Not wanting to pay for movers twice, my husband and I decided to unload everything ourselves. I was so sore!
Thank goodness for my beautiful new bathtub and my Sleepy Sleep bath salts. I needed that relaxation. (Psst, large bags of All Mixd Up bath salts are on sale right now. If you have never purchased Perfectly Posh before, message me for a free product code!)
Sometimes things don’t go as planned. 😕 But instead of complaining about it, draw some meaning from it and find a new way to move forward. Today, I planned on working on my 3 Days To Purpose challenge. But instead, I spent my time adjusting my strategy on SEVERAL things within my blog biz: a new Facebook group, a new pricing structure and model for The TCB Vault, and even postponing the launch of The Blog Hustler. 🤭
It’s funny how sometimes we think things have to go based on the plan we create. Yet life rarely ever goes as planned. So here’s to being flexible and making the changes that need to happen ✨
Today we supposed to be our last hoorah for Coley before going back to school, and we were going to Great America! Kailey woke up first with an unexpected bug and started throwing up 😩 Guess instead we will have a low key at home final hoorah 🤷🏼♀️
3 miles after dropping kiddo off at school. Training this summer hasn’t been the best and I’m definitely not where I originally wanted to be goal wise for fall races, but I’m ok with being flexible and changing my goals. My quest for a PR this fall might be on hold for now, but as long as I’m able to train and finish all of my races this fall strong and stay injury free until my triathlon in April, that’s all that matters. #goalsetter#changeofplans#fitmom#roadto70point3#marathontraining#oisellevolée#voléefl
When you allow yourself to override plans and enjoy the moment instead wonderful things can happen! Throwing it back to the perfect evening a few months back in Barbados that spontaneously happened... @barbara_grunewald 😍
It is about time to show my self, embrace all the colors and crazyness that is in me.
Time for change.
Change of plans.
Empower other people in finding their freaking purpose.
I’m developping myself as purposecoach, so you can reach and LIVE your full potential and your dreams.
Dimension TV is gonna continue but in another jacket, where female leadership, entrepeneurship and spirituality are the key pillars of what we stand for.
Soon more about that.
But first I show you my transition: That’s why the account of Dimension TV is gonna change into Valentine Berning.
New beginnings, new horizon✨💃🌈 #purpose#transition#dimensiontv2 .0 #coaching#changeofplans#differentname#showmyself#empoweringothers
