Annnnd anyone who decides to trust me as your coach and sign up BEFORE THIS SUNDAY, 11/18 will receive an extra little welcome package with some of my favorite self care products in it. So what’s it gonna be girlfran, wait 49 days to get your ass going or are you ready to join a GROUP of girls who are pushing through this holiday season together? Link in bio or DM me for a quicker response. 🧡
I almost became a bum. A philosopher. A martial artist. A Fireman. A Filmmaker. A Photographer...I have intense focus and drive right now. Whatever I choose I have a great understanding of already. A lifelong of subtle training all adding up. I went to look for a professional camera, I’ve been chasing crows for the past 3 days, random people on the street. I was in my car, ten minutes till opening time, a bird flew right up to my sideview mirror and hovered there; twice. I can see far into the future but no commitment can be made. I’ll keep searching. I’ll know when It’s there. #waiting#man#kepa_kane#chooseyourownadventure#patience

“From the dark well of Destiny runs the ever changing fate
Today you are fixed and great
Tomorrow will find you faltering in the wave.”
-my translation of the inscription along the Schicksalsbrunnen in front of the Stuttgart Opera House, created in 1914 by sculptor Karl Donndorf.
The theme of the fountain is the changeable destiny that confronts people with joy and suffering. The fountain is designed in a semicircle, in the middle of which the fate goddess sits with outstretched arms. In her closed hands she keeps the fate of the people hidden. To the right and left of the goddess at the ends of the semicircle are two pairs of lovers, symbolizing joy and sorrow.
To the left hand of the goddess of fate is the allegory of joy. It shows a pair of lovers in which a seated man carries a wreath of victory and holds the full bowl of life in his hand - a woman looks up to him happily.
On the right hand of the goddess is the allegory of sorrow. It shows a couple with a desperate man hiding his head in the lap of a seated woman.
________________________________________________________ I am not a fate-believing person, but surely I have endured the fate of suffering and the joy of love in my life and while my life’s fate is still unknown, I know this: yesterday I stood fast and strong, today I may falter in the wave, but I will be the one to choose my next step and I am thankful for the firm ground that meets my foot, and for the people around me that hold my hand as I walk through. Tomorrow I will stand firm and strong again. ______________________________________________________ #artinspiration#beawarriorqueen#reallife#strongwomen#arthistory#chooseyourownadventure#community#movingishard#changeisgood#personaldevelopment#stuttgart500p#0711#stuttgart0711#deutschlandliebe#jugendstil#artnouveau#grateful#mobiography#mobiography_49

LET GO OF YOUR STORY // Anyone in advertising will know this Chicago landmark. For a million years, I just knew I was going to be a high-powered ad exec at Leo Burnett. I'd go downtown *just* to visit this building. Obsess, much? 😏
. . .
I'd boldly go to the main floor just to get a pencil, notepad, and any other materials they'd give me. I'd leave breathless. This was the ultimate dream. There was no Plan B, C, or D. Nothing else mattered and no one could sway me from this dream.
. . .
Then, I started meeting and talking to people in the biz, hearing stories from my professors, interning, and sitting through soul-sucking advertising classes. I started to feel less excited about a career in advertising. How could this be? Could I still make it work? This is my dream! Or so I thought.
. . .
I continued on; graduated with honors, and got a job at an ad firm down the street. I hated it, but I kept going thinking my feelings would change. I kept chasing jobs in advertising and marketing, and deep down, I knew it wasn't right.
. . .
Finally, 20 years after trying to make this story I held for so long fit, I decided to let a new chapter start to be written. This new chapter is my #becoming .
. . .
What new story is waiting for you to let go of the old one? Is it time to #redefineyourhustle and turn the page on the chapter you've been reading over and over and over? Tell me about it.
Do you remember the Choose Your Own Adventure (aka CYOA) books that were popular in the 80's and 90's? The reader would make it so far into the story and when a "fork in the road" came up in the plot, there were multiple options, each of which would move the story in a different direction.
I used to love to read those books. It was so exciting to read them over and over again, each time making different choices. It was intriguing to me to see what affect my decisions had on the plot of the story.
As I type, I am watching my 4-year-old daughter live out her own - choose your own adventure story. She was given two options to clean up books she pulled out. Option A involved cleaning up and getting to "nuggle" (the "s" is silent in our house), and Option B involved discipline that would delay previously mentioned nuggling.
In the story of Esther, things looked pretty bleak for the Jewish people when the King decreed (after being convinced by Haman) that ALL Jews were to be annihilated. It appeared as if Haman was the one reading the CYOA book and making choices that would have concrete consequences for God's chosen people.
However, Haman's plan was not God's plan. God worked through a woman named Esther to save his people, even when it seemed hopeless. Even though the end of the story seemed certain, it was not how things played out. This divine intervention shows that God's plan cannot be changed by anyone. His story will be accomplished despite the acts of man.
While the CYOA books were fun to read when I was younger, I am so thankful my adult life does not mirror those books. Let me explain. Do we have free will and make decisions moving our stories in certain directions? Absolutely. It is what I was watching play out with my daughter and her books. Here is the take away: Our lives are not a CYOA book where we sink, or swim based solely on our ability to make the right choice. God's plan for our life, for our story, cannot be impeded - not even by us. ... To read the entire post visit www.nicolejesse.org
Isn’t it funny how you can visit a place a million times, but when you experience it with someone who hasn’t, suddenly you see it through a new lens? I think we’re meant to be perpetually exposed to familiarity through different eyes, only to remind us that the most beautiful things in life are not things; they’re people and places, memories and pictures. They’re feelings and moments and smiles and laughter. ✨
Double tap if you agree & tell me one special place you’ve shared with someone that elevated your own perspective (get it? ‘Elevated’ 🏔😂)
“A lot of people give up just before they’re about to make it. You know you never know when that next obstacle is going to be the last one.” – Chuck Norris⠀
Okay, there's no such thing as "the last obstacle". Life is one long obstacle course.⠀
But I do know that so many people give up right before a potential breakthrough because those breakthroughs seem to come after long periods of silence and disappointment. ⠀
I used to have very conditional goals for myself. "I need to have a lead role in a musical by the time I'm 25." "I need X dollars in the bank by the time I'm 30." I had it all wrong.⠀
If you truly want something, like with every molecule in your body, it shoudn't matter when you achieve it by. Time should be irrelevant. And it should be just as much about the process as the end result.⠀
When I hit 30, I let go of every conditional goal I'd set for myself and instead re-focused on what I love. Because I realised that if I spend my life doing what I love, it no longer matters whether it makes me rich or famous, because I'll wake up every day feeling grateful that I'm living life on my terms.⠀
It worked. I mean, life didn't magically get easy. I feel like I work a bit harder every year. But I'm now fuelled by what I do instead of drained by it. That means I can keep doing what I'm doing 'til the day I die instead of watching the clock while I get more and more depressed about my lack of "success".⠀
Anyway that's just the Monday musings of someone who needs a 2nd coffee. Thanks for letting me share ;)
