After many years of saying I was going to tie up the laces on my skates, put on my helmet, and get out there, I never did. Yesterday, I finally decided “The time is now!” And off I went, around the track, falling and getting up again, time and time again, and getting stronger for it. ✨Glitter Girl✨ will return with skates and helmet and determination.
Thank you @paulaintheworld for your encouragement and support and @sacramentorollerderby for creating an extremely positive and inclusive culture.
And yes, this is the only pic Mel got of me 🤣
Peter Pan said that you need pixie dust and happy thoughts in order to fly.
To me flying is living your dream life, pixie dust is the intention behind that you want to manifest, and happy thoughts are elevated emotions and feelings you have when you manifest your intention. 🌿✨ Happy to come home and settle back into what is “normal life” after the wonderful last months. #blissedandblessed
I either worked really hard today or got really out of shape in the last two weeks...either way good workout today! Fun to see Dana while we were both half asleep at 6 am. #orangetheoryfitness#exercise#happyheart
Last night's final project was perhaps a little ambitious after a full day of working on building my new bed, but I couldn't rest until it was done.
Took 6 hours to sand down the old headboard and get it restained. The garage looked like a thick fog had rolled in because of all the sawdust kicked up by the sander. I got absolutely filthy during the process. My back was killing me. And even this morning my hands are still tingly and numb, my body is stiff and sore, and my knees feel bruised from kneeling on concrete all day.
But you know what? It was a fucking awesome experience to spend the day working so hard on personal projects that pushed past my comfort zone of prior knowledge and perceived capability. And because of that I'll savor all these aches and pains with as much joy as I do the finished products resulting from them.
The ultimate project is now complete. I have a more comfortable place to lay my head at night, a brighter and more visually appealing recording studio, and a space that is generally more in alignment with who I am and more conducive for creative endeavors. I couldn't possibly be more pleased.
Fun tea fact: did you know that originally tea was used for medicinal purposes such as detoxification AND was often chewed rather than being drunk from pretty painted china cups! 🍃🍃🍃
PS: we prefer to brew our tea in water, thanks... 😅
Los Angeles!! How can I possibly thank you for the most amaaaazing 37th birthday party EVER?!? Does this photo of this mural depicting the bigness of your love help you feel appreciated??? I hope so, because it’s all I’ve got for now!! (I even included the grimy sidewalk, for full effect!!)
Seriously: So much fun. Such a delightful & delicious time. Thank you for coming out en masse, for singing nonstop (even the NEW songs!), for laughing with me (maybe also sometimes AT me; s’alright, can’t blame you, I’m an odd individual...), and for being so present.
SPECIAL thanks to anyone who made a donation to @yogaforyouth in lieu of giving me a gift; THAT is the BEST gift. I appreciate it deeply, as do the YFY peeps.
And to the team at @yogawestla: YOU ROCK MY WORLD. I’m floored. And I’m keeping that crown F.O.R.E.V.E.R.
xx to all, and onward we go,
Peaceful beautiful visit in one of my favourite places: Sarvikallio in Tuusula. Autumn leaves falling slowly out of trees, the forest whispering its' fairytales, amazing tiny things coming into me like: who's living in that small hole under that big spruce, what poisonos games are those mushrooms making together... A wild imagination runs free in nature 😍
They are making stairs and fireplace here 👍🔥
Rauhallinen kaunis vierailu yhdessä lempipaikoistani, Sarvikalliolla ❤ Syksyn lehdet tippuvat hiljalleen polulle edessäni, metsä kuiskailee tarinoitaan, pieniä ihmeitä osuu tielleni kuten: kuka asuu tuolla kolossa kuusen alla, mitä myrkyllisiä juonia kärpässieniperhe punoo... Villi mielikuvitus saa vallan luonnon helmassa 😍 Tänne rakennetaan muuten portaita ja nuotiopaikkaa 👍🔥 #autumn#nature#forest#rock#peacefulmind#healing#powerofnature#creativemind#sweettimealone#syksy#luonto#metsä#kallio#levollinenmieli#luontoparantaa#yksinolonihanuus#luovamieli#happyheart#juliakuu
Still riding this multi media art wave thing. It's all so new to me (having worked with only one medium at a time in the past) and I'm having a heck of a time throwing all kinds of materials together. This latest piece was inspired by a recent kayak trip up the river. I used watercolor for the first layer and have added acrylics and colored pencils so far. You can see some of the progress in my stories. 🖌
Chilly mornings call for warm oatmeal!
Recipe: Cook rolled oats according to directions on the box. (I substituted half of the water for matcha almond milk). Add protein powder of your choice and top with bananas, almonds, coconut flakes, seed mix and cinnamon.
