“That moment you stop asking in you’re going to be okay and just decide you are going to be okay for sure.”😇 The wonderful @CleoWade putting good vibes and happy feelings into my head this morning after a quick flip through of my favorite book, “Heart Talk.” Time and time again I’ve always had my own back. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Being besties with yourself is a major🔑🚨 .. I mean why wouldn’t you want to be your own bestie!? Afterall, you do know yourself better than anyone else! Trust yourself and love yourself… you know exactly what you’re doing, you got this😎💯
Oof. This one hit me to my core. I’ve been an entrepreneur for 4.5 (almost 5!) years now and there hasn’t been one day that I haven’t felt scared. What are people gonna think of me? Is anyone gonna like my clothing designs? Am I annoying because I talk about haircare? Can I really make a living working for myself? Who do I think I am?
Alllllll the negative things flash in my head like bright lights and it can be hard to turn them off. 😖🙈 But you know what? I still showed up. I still SHOW up. Every single day. Because when you show up, you grow up. And nothing great ever came from inside a comfort zone.
If there’s something you feel called to do but you also feel afraid, good! DO IT SCARED. Do 👏🏼 it 👏🏼 scared. Because the biggest + best growth happens while you’re trembling inside.
It’s time to shake off that cocoon and fly baby. 🦋
I do not wish
For a perfect love,
For I am not a
What I do wish for, though,
Is a love
That means something.
What I do wish for
Is a love that is not afraid
And warm up to the idea
Of an "us."
I wish for a love that is honest,
I wish for a love
That has both its great and its mournful
I want the peaks and the valleys,
The incredible highs and
The devastating lows.
I want to laugh until it physically hurts
And I want to cry
Until tears make it
Impossible for me
I want emotion
In every way that
I can feel it.
In short, I want
A love that is
Honest, and true
I want a love
That is visceral,
A love that is
“No one’s day is what you think it is. Be extra loving if you can” words of wisdom by #cleowade#hearttalk

HOY SE ASOMA a mi ventana @cleowade con su libro #HeartTalk . Mucho más que un libro, se trata de una obra bellísima en la que la autora ha vertido toda su sabiduría, enriquecida con espiritualidad y poesía. En este libro encontrarás tu inspiración diaria, una voz amiga, una pausa reparadora o la chispa de motivación que andabas buscando. He tenido el honor de traducirlo, aunque ya antes me enamoré del estilo y del mensaje de Cleo, que tiene la virtud de hacerte sentir poderosx y acompañadx. No en vano se ha forjado la reputación de ser la poetisa de una nueva generación. Corred a la librería a buscar vuestro ejemplar, no os arrepentiréis.
The final stages of my 24 years of life I got really tired of dealing with me feeling somber towards others who will never feel the same towards me. At the end as @cleowade would say. I am the strongest flower that ever grew.
Thank you Happy Sunday.
May all your vibes say: I got this 👊🏻
As I said before, every Sunday, I put on a face mask and do some light reading to take my mind off things and prepare myself for the week ahead. Kicking the Sunday scaries in the butt one sheet mask at a time 💪🏻
I know I posted with @farmacybeauty Hydrating mask before but it’s definitely one of my top 5 sheet masks. Maybe that’s why Sephora never has them in stock at the store 😫
I put the mask in the freezer this morning for about 10 minutes. After I put it on, I used my rose quartz roller over it. Sunday scaries begone 💀
#Sunday contemplation practice via @cleowade. Whether it’s a loved one and we think we know what’s on their mind, someone we find difficult and haven’t contemplated what would make them lash out the way they are, or a complete stranger on the street, we can open our heart to them. Even looking at them and making the heartfelt aspiration, “May you be happy” allows a moment where we acknowledge and embrace their humanity. No one’s day is what we think it is. Samsara is the cycle of suffering and every. single. one. of us is trapped in it. Please be kind to one another.
2 years ago I saw the words of Cleo Wade on products in NYC at @fishseddynyc and have been fascinated by her open hearted and contemporary poetry ... akin to street art folded into a speakeasy. I found her book today by chance.

Social media has been a little quiet as preparations for next week's Sobremesa dinner are underway, adjusting to some transitions and critically really learning what it means to engage in deep self care.
This past Monday I had the honor and privilege to see the incredible @cleowade speak at the Graduate Hotel in Tempe and a few things she said have been present in my mind ever since. First, that being present with others fully, really being able to show up requires us to take really good care of ourselves and to prepare for our time with others, to not just hold space but to prepare to do so. Secondly, she shared that given that we know what an oppressed world looks like already in order to bring forth change, we must be rested and well to dream up a new world. The world needs people to be able to dream to bring something new forth since we don't yet know what another world looks like yet 💛 | Slum Village "Fall in Love" |
I am overflowing with LOVE after meeting this amazing soul last night, @cleowade!
We spoke on the three pillars of SELF-CARE.
1️⃣ Therapeutic Rituals and understanding maintenance vs care.
2️⃣ Dedicated Safe Space where you’re surrounded by people who are there to support your healing.
3️⃣Relational Boundaries that allow you to be your authentic self, not feel bullied or drained.
✨One big take away is asking myself “What did you I do today for myself ? “ I am constantly working towards a goal but I have to prioritize REST and TIME for MYSELF in order to be emotionally and mentally checked in to sustain the energy it will take to achieve that goal. 💜💜
Just a friendly reminder:
You are a gift and you are here for a reason.
You deserve to take up space in the world.
We need you here. .
You playing small does not serve the world at all. .
Neem je ruimte in.
Onthou de ander kan jou niet zien behalve vanuit zijn of haar eigen referentiekader en filters. Dus stop met het proberen en aan te passen dat heeft totaal geen zin. Wat wel zin heeft is zijn wie jij wilt zijn. Je eigen koers te volgen en soms fuck you te zeggen. Dat houd je eigen space clean en opgeruimd. .
Waar en wanneer heb jij nog moeite om gewoon te Zijn? Deel je het met me? 👇🏽
belongs to you alone
only you can give it
and only you
can take it away
a reminder, as I continue to dig deeper into my own self and looking to the future. Love having a partner like @yamansdood who motivates me daily to pursue what matters most. Looking inward 🔮 #cleowade#futureself
