Turning 25 in a few hours and my 13year old self would be pretty surprised at how things turned out to be! There are a Couple of things I’ve realised about life in this not so short span-
1. True love exists. It may not last for as long as you imagined it to, but it does exist.
2. There’s a difference between having a best friend and having a true friend.
3. It’s imperative for a woman to be financially independent. Period.
4. Don’t ignore the vibes.
5. Life will invariably teach you the art of letting go. Embrace that.
6. LOVE YOURSELF. Wholly and unabashedly.
"Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."

"Friend, this is the good stuff. Right here in the tension" |lara casey|
I dont think I have ever read a book twice but this book Cultivate by Lara Casey has me hooked and I take forever to read it because i highlight everything and actually THINK AND IMPLEMENT what she's teaching me....it's so good and if you have any intention of changing and living your best life, you NEED to pick up this book, it's a must read! <3
But anyways, TIME UNDER TENSION....that's exactly where I feel right now...life is in a season of organized chaos in the daily, the twins are in school & I am home with Hayden and Lincoln daily...some may be like "well at least 2 are away!!" but the two that are home are the needy ones who rely on me for everything...every. single. thing. And truthfully, I really miss my solid business hours, I love my job...so. fricken. much. But I also love my kids and don't want to miss out!! I had a good thing going in the summer; my team and I accomplished amazing things and I'm so proud of them...and I want to keep that speed up, but I'm struggling to do that AND BE FULL TIME MOM (didn't know how hard it would be to get these two to nap together ;)) I've learned and I am reminded there are seasons of hustle and tension...and both of them provide GROWTH....just one season calls for more GRACE than another.
And I'm in that "under tension" season...where I can have growth but slow growth with a whole lot of grace!! and I need GRACE, to myself. I need to give myself Grace and do my best in my season of life. The only person I am not meeting expectations for is myself....I am hitting my business minimums and I even ordered Halloween costumes early! :) Momma, maybe you are in that season too, where you want to be super mom, accomplish all the things, be the pinterest mom and do DIY Halloween costumes...AND you want to rock your business, whatever kind of business you have...and it's too hard and it's too much pressure on us and then when we try to do it all, we end up giving less to both parties.
I'm taking my top priorities as coach and as mom and I'm making sure those are accomplished each day...if anything else gets done WOO HOO go me, but if not, t
Missing my husband like a fat kid on a diet missing cake 🍰
My partner in crime, my best friend 💑 Although I have many things keeping me occupied - work & children it still is tough with him being away for work. It’s not the extra hands helping with the running of the house, more the comfort and companionship we have that secures me. I get rather depressed and a bit of anxiety when he’s gone. Any solutions or suggestions would be helpful ?🙏🏼 If I hated my husband I would wish him away, thankfully that’s NOT the case 🤣
I seriously don’t know how families who have spouses away for half the year or months at a time cope 😭 Yep I’m ridiculous 🤦🏻♀️ .
As you get older your friendship chains shift. Some friends drift away, some have enough, some just need new paths to find what it is they really want. Unfortunately for me, friendships have come and gone with the partners I have or they have. I wish all my old friends the very best in life and hope they are truly happy with their goals and achievements. My ultimate focus has been on my family and working hard to give them the best possible life 🙌🏼 the sacrifices I would not change for the world, although it does make me sad when I reflect. I have a wonderful small group of close friends that are there to support me no matter what and that’s what I love so dearly about each and every one of them - even if I can count them on one hand 👌🏼Everything happens for a reason.
Dear diary out 💖
Sometimes in life, we are trying to read between the lines.. We are in a constant exertion of trying to decode something thats been said to us, or is being said to the world.. We try n try but what we dun realize is that sometimes there is no in between the lines.. There's no message for us to decode.. All that there is, is simply what it is and no matter how keenly we look we are not going to find anything for ourselves.. The possibility is either that the lines we are looking into, reading stuff in between them are non existent, self-created, illusionary OR they are simply not our lines... I have never been against the idea to have those illusions.. If those illusions keep you happy, then be it! Be happy!
But why do we have those illusions at all in the first place?
The simplest answer being : Because we are afraid to face the music.. Afraid to see that there might be something even more beautiful out there.. Cuz that's a game of poker with all in.. You dont know if you might win or lose?
Life has always been a choice between settling for what u think is your truth or going out to explore what it might be.. N trust me, not one person can prove which ov the two theories is the one to implement. N life is to too short for this experiment.
Still, what we really can do is, just work on not being scared n know that there is no message for us in between those lines.. N stop looking there.. Cuz it will only only get us tired n done.. Face it that the only thing written in between those lines are the lines themselves interescting each other in the middle.. Shaped in an extraordinarily clear sign:❌! Even then, you won't stop breathing.. Even then, you cant stop living.. Yes the sound of your illusion breaking might deafen you for a while.. The pieces might hurt for endless days.. But even th endless ends.. The pain will cease.. N you'll learn to find th courage to look for other lines.. The ones that might be yours, n the ones that give signals which wont hurt as much.
Burdock root is high in nutrients, lowers blood sugar, works on the lymphatic system, restores function to the body’s eliminatory channels, assists in adrenal exhaustion, and helps purify the blood.
You will receive hot burdock root tea upon entering Center for Preforming Arts at 8pm as part of the Metacine series so arrive 15 minutes early to soak up the goodness of the plant medicine before your yoga practice.
~His soul stretched tight across the skies
That fade behind a city block,
Or trampled by insistent feet
At four and five and six o’clock;
And short square fingers stuffing pipes,
And evening newspapers, and eyes
Assured of certain certainties,
The conscience of a blackened street
Impatient to assume the world~
My life dramatically shifted as I began to see the miracle in everyday life and reestablished a strong connection to my surroundings. Studying the elements and how they show up in all life forms, getting to know the plants and their virtues, the art of seeing things as they are. Paying attention to our outer and inner worlds. All this birthed my desire to study and practice herbalism. Hence the foraging blog within my photography website and @minnesotaherbs Instagram.
I am passionate about sharing the wisdom of the plants of this beautiful land. Tuning in with the seasons and looking to the plants to balance and harmonize within just as they do on earth. They say plants grow where they are most needed thus it is vital to our ultimate health to have a relationship with these generous beings.
Excited to offer an informational and experiential (re)introduction to these abundant medicines which dwell in the land of 10,000 lakes. Meeting the plants in our bodies with yoga asanas from Amanda as she mindfully crafts the class to assist the herbs in their work, all the while Lauren serenades the heart with song. In my opinion this synergistic combination nourishes our being on every level.
We are happy to offer this seasonal series with the principle of Dana (joyful giving). The fall root series this year will be held at Center of Preforming Arts. Open to everyone who wishes to call in some self care 💗. Message for more info or visit FB. 📷: @megmastel (Terra Sura)
Today being so long and stressful, and my heart and brain filled with such anxiety, I SOOOO wanted to go straight home, make me a cocktail, eat some junk, and soak in a bubble bath ....BUT here I am at the gym, committed and REFUSING to be the quitter I’ve always been 💜 #lifeasweknowit#gettingmyfitnesson
