It’s been a year since I posted this; and it couldn’t be more apt for today •
I've had this verse in my mind for the past few weeks - honestly, they've been pretty overwhelming, but it came to me today that I should perhaps actually read the passage it's in; 2 Chronicles 20.
Basically there's this guy, Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah, some stuff goes down (I haven't read it all, so don't know what) but basically there's a whole load of people who are after him; he 'was afraid and set his face to the Lord'. Jehoshaphat stood in the house of the Lord and prayed... 'O God... we are powerless against the great horde that is coming against us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you'. What bravery, courage, faith and trust he had. It struck me that he could've taken matters into his own hands, he could've ended it there and then, he could've flapped around panicking, he could've buried his head in the sand and ignored the situation, he could've allowed the overwhelming fear consume his mind, body and soul sinking him into the deepest depths; but instead he chooses truth, and he chooses life.
Jehoshaphat acknowledges his fear, but seeks the Lord and stands.
This passage has brought so much encouragement, but I also feel so challenged; in the face of my fear, where do I look? What position have I taken up?
Am I standing in the house of the Lord, declaring His truth and turning my gaze to His, or am I sinking in the overwhelming fear of suffocating situations?
I know where I'd rather be, what about you?
👘 I’m happiest when I’m being creative & making something beautiful 🍃 it was so nice to take some time away from worrying bout posting on Instagram/am I engaging enough? ✨ being in different time zones definitely helped just stay away from it all as I was too busy experiencing the countries I was exploring (& taking lots of photos!) 📸 mind refreshed... soul recharged... cannot wait to play with some kimonos! #floralprint
We are always so grateful for our customers, and today was no different. We had a lady take a drive from Canberra just to shop in store! She was also very glad to hear that our garments are really made in Australia, in fact she got to take a peek at our production space and see the girls on the sewing machines! 💙
Set health goals the same way you set work goals. After a few days in the factory, checking upon (and still learning a lot about!) the process and making off of our collections, I’m enjoying a few days at some of the most beautiful places in Italy. With my three favorite persons in the world. // #worklifebalance#roundtrip
From Italy, with love 🧡
Give yourself a break. Sometimes the simplest thing to do is to take a step back to move forward. For quite a few years I wasn't in tune with my body. I refused to take a day off from training, ignored my cravings completely, let my bad moods take me over and watched myself in the mirror every morning hoping to see results. At some point my body just stopped working. Even a thought of going to the gym made me sick. I was tired all the time and had no appetite. My body was finally telling me it's too much. After concentrating my thoughts and setting my priorities right I decided to give myself time. I realized I wasn't competing against someone or something that I always had to push myself. And it just so happened that I started seeing great results just after a few months. I had achieved more than within a year before. Don't punish your body, it will react eventually. You only get one body for life, be kind to it 😇🙏💖

Have you read @elleuk 's sustainability issue? I've just finished it. I think it's great that a big mainstream magazine is talking about the environmental issues around fashion. Although I do think there could have been more adverts on eco products, especially independent businesses.
I think it's great that a lot more fashion designers and high street retailers are looking to make their collections from more sustainable materials but I think the scale of production also needs to drastically reduce. According to the issue, 53 millon tonnes of clothing are produced each year! 87% of this will end up in landfill or insinerated. Even if this number of clothing was all recycled it would still be a massive strain on resources.
There is also the ethical side of the fashion industry. Fair wages, safe clean environments etc. Everything in the chain needs to be transparent.
What did you think of the issue? What changes would you like to see in the fashion industry? Bx
Besides teaching my kids the truth and #historicity of #TheBible , I’d say one of the next top five things that holds vital importance is teaching them an understanding of #nutrigenomics •
I dropped @luke_buzbee off at Target 🎯 to pick up a snack for his day trip to an amusement park. He suggested Target because “they have choices right at the front of the store”. •
He came out with #ceasarsalad and #kombucha !!! 😍 do you realize the choices he had in that entire store, and even right in front of him? I’d say this is an incredible foundation for a life of balanced nutrition for longevity and quality of life... Lord willing. #proudmama •
This is also the kid who writes his own workout programs and works out without direction almost every day. #determination#choices#choosewell#commitment#growingbeforemyeyes
So happy with the new tags! They are designed and printed in the studio on recycled cards to make sure we reuse as many materials as possible ♻
We print only the amount needed to avoid any waste going into the bin.
When you place the order, your new items arrive to you wrapped in recycled tissue paper, natural twine, and a mailer bag or carton box, made with recycled materials that can be reused or composted.
Creating fashion kind to the environment is my priority, starting with the design and choice of fibres to the packaging and mailing system.
Você conhece o termo Slow Fashion?
Contrário aos princípios do Fast Fashion - o qual estimula o consumo exacerbado, resultado da (re)produção em massa que tem como consequência impactos negativos no meio ambiente e na sociedade - o Slow Fashion vem se tornando cada vez mais parte da realidade tanto de consumo como de produção 🖤
Este movimento que surgiu como uma alternativa à realidade atual prioriza o consumo consciente, visando a qualidade sobre a quantidade.
♻️ É um modelo de produção que preza pela transparência em todos os processos e foge de modismos para focar em produtos atemporais; valoriza o produtor local; pratica preços reais; e gera impactos menores ao meio ambiente!
Keine Zeit für ein gesundes Mittagessen? Mir ging es jahrelang so in besonderen stressigen Phasen fiel das Mittagessen sogar auch aus oder bestand aus einem Joghurt mit Früchten. Beides ist nicht gerade gesund, weshalb ich dann angefangen habe am Abend einfach mehr zu kochen und die Reste zur Arbeit mitzunehmen. Hier kommt ein ziemlich einfaches Rezept, dass du in etwa 15 Minuten zubereitet hast. Link dazu findest du in meinem Profil. #ayurveda#healthylife#lunch#foodgram52#ayurvedalife#busylife#choosewell#eatwell#pasta
