This kid was a total 💩 this afternoon, not listening + throwing fits about everything.
Then there was THIS!
She wanted me to sing to her, so I did. She sang along, and my heart was melted. She asked me to take pictures with her, I didn’t want to, BUT I AM SO GLAD I DID! 💕
Don’t wait for the right opportunity, CREATE IT!
Life is too short & unpredictable to keep dreaming and talking about taking that holiday, buying that outfit you’ve been thinking about, meeting up with that girlfriend you haven’t seen in a while! #liveyourbestlife#livefornow#lifelessons#livelifetothefullest
PEN TO PAPER: I’m a what most call an old soul... my beliefs are different then most, my passions, are stranger then most, what I “believe in” are crazier then almost .. but I what I do treasure is keeping journals, “handwritten” journals, sending a “letter” to someone you admire, treasure, or love.. it’s the “time” and effort it takes from your heart doing it. Rather then just typing some words on a screen... sometimes it’s the little things in a life that can be a “treasure” for someone else! .... Everyday is a joy abound. It’s a matter of prospective. For every trial there is a joy. For every loss there is a gain. Finding the benefits to typical challenges brings to focus the “beauty” of daily life challenges. It’s as simple as keeping a journal, jotting down small gifts of being “alive”. The scent of a fresh breeze. Or a handshake from a friend. Sounds and sights. Aromas and textures. Life is a grand blessing, but it’s one made of tiny and simple joys. Just like a mural, it’s pieced together stroke by stroke with your brush. With “light” there are also “dark” elements living together (one never without the other) a journal inspires us to open our eyes & hearts to tiny but tangible life obstacles that can create a life of possibilities.. #humbleandkind#heartandsoul#newbeginnings#countrygirl#mylifestory
“Be too busy working on your own seaweed harvest, to notice if theirs is greener or growing faster.”~Raquel M. Carter
How often are you scrolling social media pages and you start to compare yourself to how well they’re doing, they seem to be gaining numbers by the hour and your sitting at a low number? You realize an hour later you’ve fallen down the rabbit hole and you’re right back to feeling like the breath got knocked out of you? Did the Comparison net catch you? Or you may have a lot of followers and the number begins to be a battle. It’s never enough. Why? Because you are basing your value as a person on a number. This occurs because you were conditioned from a young age to always give an account to someone in authority for what you do.
What I realized is I no longer really care too much about Instagram. And that’s not because it’s not super fun because it is. I think it’s fintastic’. However I realized over the last 6 months as I’ve been a business page I get 1 percent maybe 2 at times on traffic from Instagram, so it’s therefore no longer a priority for me.
We should provide value for others but remember your worth. I tend to think that an app isn’t going to pay my mortgage and who knows how long the app will be around for.
Don’t you think it’s much more important to place your energy and time into what’s going to ultimately be something that is yours that you own? You’ll never own Instagram, nor your content, but your blog is all yours forever.
Place your value on whats important for your brand and YOU.
Most affably yours til my next swim, Raquelxxx

Face your true nature. Feel the roots of consciousness run deep into the earth. Witness new growth, fresh awareness, springing from the depths of you like seedlings. Wake to the whispers reminding you that you are everything and nothing. You’ve been gifted this beautiful human form. Your only task? To fully embody it. You have within you more love than is conceivable. So love! Love. Love unconditionally and with abandon. Let your love wash over to soothe the wounds of forgetfulness. - KD
YOU WILL BE STRONGER on the other side! 👇👇
I spent SO many long ass years settling. I settled in my life, in my career, and in my relationships. It caused me PAIN. It NEVER EVER felt right and the Universe spanked my ass over and over UNTIL I got the message.
When we take responsibility for our life and how we show up, we can NO LONGER blame anything or anyone for what we experience.
Take back your power.
You are in control.
This pain you feel will make you stronger.
You will look back and know how incredible you truly are!
HAPPINESS is an inside job! 👇👇
If you truly desire happiness, then be happy. ⠀⠀
Happiness is NEVER the people, the place, or the experience. 🤷♀️
It’s💥ALWAYS💥how YOU FEEL about the people, the place, or experience. Did you catch that? ⠀⠀
It’s about YOU and YOUR FEELINGS - it’s NOT about anything else.
Focus on things that make you happy and bring you joy and you will find more things to be happy about. ⠀⠀
When I was in the beginning of my transformational voyage (journey) I had to create boundaries in order to be able to stand on my own. A mermaid must get comfortable with having legs.(smile)
I was very wobbly, because I wasn’t used to standing strong in my convictions. When this is the case, you mustn’t be fearful of making decisions to distance yourself from people while you’re trying to regain your strength.
It doesn’t mean it has to be forever, but just until you’re able to stand alone and you aren’t worrisome about people trying to condition you back to the old you.
Titubavo nel pubblicare questo video: ho, come tutti, i miei difetti ben visibili, questa sequenza è piena di imperfezioni e ho ancora molta strada davanti, ma... Non sono mai stata sportiva: quando ho cominciato questo sport partivo da zero e durante le prime lezioni non riuscivo neanche ad aggrapparmi. Essere in grado di sostenere questo esercizio mi fa capire che il nostro corpo è capace di cose strabilianti, e che il vero limite è solo con noi stessi. Obiettivo: continuare a migliorare 💪
Pretty excited for our next HEART & SOUL at the @theslowdown on Dec. 12th at 7pm. This is going to be amazing night of worship, the message of God’s grace, and special Christmas elements! You don’t want to miss! Everyone is welcome for this free event! #heartandsoul#omaha
Every day we experience a magical twilight between our dreams and waking state. During this brief period of time, our minds still remember that all things are possible. We can smoothly transition into our physical world without losing a sense of hope when we check in with our heart center first, before we even get out of bed. Our heart center is the link between body and spirit, instinct and inspiration. It doesn't take long to hold a thought of loving gratitude for the heart that beats within us. In a mere moment we can review all that we want to accomplish in the light of love. When we get into the habit of beginning our day from the heart, all of our activities glow with the infusion of conscious intent and all interactions are done with compassion.
