Back here together after 10 years! Just in time for schoolies. I’m over theme parks. Too old for this and I got completely shattered and dunked going down the octopus water slide for children - the very last slide/ride too. #confidencekiller#imanadult
When you're an adult, you don't have to eat at the table! 🙌
But seriously. Probably one of my favorite spots to sit down in our house. Sometimes I even find my hubby sitting here.
This morning, I sat down and ate my nutrient dense pudding like I've done just about every day for the last 3 years. (Sometimes I have an ice cold shake instead!) I used to skip breakfast thinking it wasn't important and I didn't have time. But now I get all the nutrients I need for the day in less than 5 minutes. No longer do I leave the house hungry, or feel tempted to buy the greasy expensive breakfast at the market near my job. My stomach and my wallet are happy! 👌
Merely 2 days after reading its a myth that dairy products cause extra inflammation when sick and im already using childrens nyquil as an ice cream condiment... 9/10 would get sick again. Breyers peach + cherry nyquill... Sick sundae on a sunday. #NateBellInTheKitchen#ImAnAdult
Links awakening was the first video game I ever got. I got it for my birthday with the first generation gameboy. I never beat it so decided I would finally defeat this game 20 years later.....I obviously have my priorities straight 🤣🤣🤣🤣 #imanadult#linksawakening#gameboy#nerd
Some kind of awakening happened yesterday. I was up at 3 am filled with energy and some kind of Whhhaaaattttt!? :
I realized I am an adult. I make my choices. I completed VMR a year ago and our family lived that lifestyle as our foundation. But in the transition to RV living and the explosion of that, something started to slip. I found myself making excuses for my lack of self care. :
Kelly Brogan often shares a quote “When you know better, you do better.” I kinda said to her - I know better but I’m not doing better so what’s wrong with that quote!? I hated the quote and always contracted when I heard it. I feel like I was waiting for a different kind of knowing but really I was waiting for someone to do it for me. Kelly essentially kindly repeated the quote... 😁
I am an adult. I know what I know and I get to make my own choices. No right/wrong or good/bad. Just me and MY life. VMR had been a set of rules and I had the perspective that I was sick and needed rules - I never really entered the ‘choosing’ phase. So I started to rebel... But what I just realized is that I can choose to eat Chips Ahoy and Cheetos and live that life or I can choose what I know nourishes me (I have not been eating those foods but damn did I as a kid).
I know better. It is finally time to be an adult and it feels so freaking good and exciting and scary. Not just with food but with all things. I get to choose. No more “poor me.” And there is so much kindness in that when before it came from self aggression. :
And that is Dr. Brogan’s message... KNOW. Give yourself 30 days and do the food reintroduction and know which foods are healing for you and which are harming. Detox, calm your nervous system, begin to come home. Then CHOOSE. :
RADICAL RESPONSIBILITY. I finally get it. And I love it. Eternal gratitude @kellybroganmd :
We hit the farmer’s market and then Lotus crashed... :
In my favorite coffee place reading a book in English! As you all may already know, I’m a native Spanish speaker, so I also need to improve my English language, vocabulary, grammar ... everything 🤓. Sorry for all the mistakes you have seen in this little account! I’m re-reading Prisoner of Azkaban and writing some words that I can guess their meaning but I don’t specifically know what do they mean ☕️ Then I’ll do some 汉语 and 日语！I’m already preparing my super goals for 2019 about my language studies that I want to share with you! Even though 2018 was a bad year for me, I’m planning to take the best from November and December. IELTS is coming soon and I must be prepared. I remember how I felt about reading a book in English for the first time (13 years old?) and how I feel now... easy-peacy! Hopefully I’ll get a good score ❤️ PD: Hugs for all of you! My DM is opened and I’ll be happy to chat with any of you, ya sea en Ingles, Chino o Español 🐈 Forgive this old lady that sometimes gets too busy with her daily working life ! #imanadult#alreadygraduated#languagelearner#studygram ☕️ #learningenglish#spanishspeaker#studygram#studyingchinese#learningchinese#langblr#studynotes#languagenotes#studyblr#studyspot#chineselanguage#mandarin
This is going to be my new office! Thankfully, I can paint it. I also plan to update the furnishings. I am excited to start this new chapter in my life. I’m also excited to makeover this space and turn it into an environment I will thrive in. I will miss all my kids at the schools I work at and will try to visit when I can. It’s time to step out and step up. Thank you to everyone that has supported me with your thoughts, prayers, and kind words the last few months as I have been on this journey to find a full time job. I want to keep some things private, but I will say that I will be working for a local nonprofit and they help kids and families through difficult times. I know this will be a fulfilling position and I am looking forward to it. I’ll post pics of my office as I redo it. #excited#newseason#newjob#biggirloffice#imanadult#nonprofit#makeover#beforeandafter#thisisthebefore#thankyou
