It took me about 3.5-4 years to see any sort of major progress with online coaching. .

It took me 5 years to get a Bachelor’s degree. .

From burnout to burning with enthusiasm. How we keep that burning enthusiasm that helps us strive toward our goals?🔥 Enthusiasm that burns away the obstacles to really knowing our true selves and universal nature. Discovering the inner gold originally hidden from the view.

The last 24 hrs have been non-stop & the last thing I wanted to do was go to church tonight. I went only because my boys had piano lessons at the church beforehand.
__
And of course I’m glad I went! While being there didn’t take away my exhaustion & overwhelmed feelings, it did put me in the paths of people to help lift my spirit.
__
I had a good theological conversation that filled my nerd cup, saw many friends, listened to two others that needed to get some stuff off their chests, we sang songs that I needed to sing out to Jesus, I heard a great teaching on Hebrews 4, & didn’t have to put on my fake Christian smile & act like all was fine.
__
You know what I’m talking about. I’m thankful I go to a church that when someone asks me how I’m doing I don’t have to lie & say, “fine!” Instead I can be honest & say, “worn out!” And the person may giggle & agree that they too are exhausted. I can see my friends, my sisters in Christ, & be real about my rough 24 hours & they won’t judge me, but will allow me to vent, & then pray me up. 
___
If you don’t go to a church or have Christian friends that you can be vulnerable & honest with, I pray that it changes! I pray you find you a place to belong where you can not only vent your frustrations, but you will also be poured into biblically & be covered in prayer! 
__
So I’m going to bed tonight still exhausted, still facing the same woes, but my soul feels so much lighter & I am still full of joy. I thank the Lord for always knowing better than I do & for blessing me with an amazing church & amazing friends!

A week ago from today, I booked a flight to Ghana with my favorite fashion designer in the entire world, @tidalcool (I modeled this dress for her forever ago). It still doesn’t feel real that in a week from tomorrow, I’ll be on route to Africa. ⠀
⠀
The farthest I’ve ever been out of the country is Aruba and the Bahamas! I’ve never been overseas, so hit me with any travel tips you’ve got for me, please!

You were just a few months young in this photo and now you're approaching your third year here on Earth. Your curiosity continues to grow while still holding my hands. You'll be a big sister soon but will always be my baby.

TRAVEL TIP❗️Communicating with people from different cultures who speak a foreign language can be challenging. The best things you can do is be patient, maintain a friendly attitude and ALWAYS smile. The local people work hard and struggle to understand us too. It’s not easy for them but it’ll make it easier for both parties if you stay positive! Frowning may be your first instinct and is an easy reaction but it’ll be tougher and slower to get what you want if you frustrate people. In my opinion—the only exception to this method is when traveling in China 🇨🇳 in some non-tourist areas. In these parts I experienced that you’ll gain more respect and get what you want if you project a serious demeanor and badass attitude 😂! With this advice in mind—go out and travel! Don’t forget to download Google Translator! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Btw I’m back in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) for a few days 😬 If you’re around and want to purchase a motorbike, I’m selling mines! DM me! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I’ve been writing a song that is a “doorpost” for me....”With Open Hands” it’s something I have to choose every. single. day...because it’s not easy. Try it..open your hands. Energy releases from the deepest part of you in a physical act of surrender. So. so. hard. The Lord spoke to me at 2am a couple months after I miscarried in 2010... “I’m going to give you a little girl...and she’s going to be completely different than you.” I was pregnant a month later with LaRue. I just got this picture from her teacher and cried from my deepest soul. She embodies the peace and joy of Jesus and surrenders herself with her hands and heart wide open without fear. Freedom exists in her...and God have her to me...to remind me every day who He is..freedom, joy, peace...and I can have it, with hands wide open 🤲

Make a to-do list beginning of the day and only choose 3 items as your must do items. Next categorize the leftovers into 2nd or 3rd priority. This allows you to focus on your must-do tasks first before you can move on to second priority items.⠀

This trip has been so incredible so far. I’ll have to take some time after we get back to organize my thoughts & put them into words. It’s truly amazing to be traveling through our country & seeing things that make me so much more aware of our history, of our current affairs. I have learned how absolutely spoiled I am... it’s been quite a learning curve to be hundreds of miles from a Starbucks or Target 😜. I’ve had a few inquiries about how the kids are traveling & any tips I have & just wanted to be transparent. We’ve been conditioning our kids for travel since infancy. They are amazing travelers {most} of the time because we have taught them to be. Lots of snacks, hydration, & our stops to run off energy {&the iPad!} make it easier, but I don’t think children can be convinced to be calm on the road. I will say for our kids, we’ve learned their routines & needs & our road trips have gotten progressively easier. But I still have to work on letting go of my expectations of what our travels are going to be & embrace the unpredictability!

Are you thinking of getting new chairs? May I recommend something? Wing back chairs were first introduced in England and they date back to 1600s! They never go out of style and there are many versions of them. We have a couple that I purchased on sale years ago from @westelmportland . I had slip covers made for them couple of years ago and they move around the house all the time now! Most important part of this photo is the painting by the youngest, from elementary years 😍

Happy Birthday to my literal other half! You are one of the very best people I know and I’m so honored to be your twin. Your love of Big Brother and red pandas is like no other. You tolerate all of my awkward moments with strangers yet you still go in public with me. You’ve been through the craziest season of life and you’re so inspiring. You’re the person that gets me the most and I’m so incredibly thankful for you

4 years.
4 years ago I was a fresh college grad. I had my bachelors in accounting + I was planning to go for my CPA. I was working in the tax department of a large payroll company + I would soon be accepting my first “real” accounting job at a CPA firm.
I was 23 + making too much money for someone who didn’t really know what she wanted.
I had chosen my career path because I wanted a good paying job with good benefits right out of college.
Well I did just that. But guys, I. WAS. MISERABLE.
I drove an hour one way.
I worked over 70 hours a week during busy season (late Jan - April 15th)
My son missed me + I missed him.
Guys, I skipped the first part of my CPA exam to go to Hershey Park! I knew in my soul it wasn’t what I was supposed to be doing.
I job hopped for a little until I landed myself an entry level job that had absolutely nothing to do with accounting + I worked my way up.
Here I am.
4 years later.
Pursuing this business + I'm finally starting to live my truth. I want to scream from the roof tops - YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE WHO SOCIETY WANTS YOU TO BE. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BECOME WHAT SOCIETY TELLS YOU TO BECOME. - guys, it’s all b.s.
Go to school.
Graduate.
Get a good job.
Contribute to your 401k.
Work for 40+ years.
Retire + pray the economy is good.
Pray you have enough in your retirement accounts.
Die.
What kind of prison sentence is that?
Um. No thanks.
You can live your life on your own terms. You can find other ways. You don’t have to sit in a cubicle for the next decade of your life if you don’t want to.
Go start that business.
Open that Etsy shop.
Switch careers.
Join an MLM.
Audition for that part.
Apply for the job you don’t quality for.
Respond to the LinkedIn message.
Stay at home with your babies.
Follow your heart + DO WHAT SETS YOUR SOUL ON FIRE!
Hey, I’m @lndsypldr + I’m here to shake things up. ✨🤘🏼🌿

Saying goodbye to mini skirts is hard to do at the end of the Summer, especially when they’re this soft! This one is by far, my favourite. On the plus side, cozy cardigans and warm lattes are back.

When he was very young, the Boy used to look at the watch on his Father’s wrist as he held his hand. It looked so big then, and he wondered if all adult-sized watches were as big as his Father’s.
. 
As he grew, the Boy would admire the watch as his Father would draw on his drafting table late at night. The watch looked smaller to his eyes, though it seemed large and heavy as his Father's wrist dragged it all over the drafting table.
. 
It began to look heavy as his Father grew older. The bracelet grew looser on his Father’s wrist and the watch would drop down to his fist as his Father walked.
. 
The watch must be getting too heavy for him, the Boy thought.
. 
When he got sick his Father could no longer bear the watch. It would just sit on the table by his bed, ticking beneath the night light.
. 
It fell to the Boy to be the watch’s keeper and he could not bring himself to wear the watch on his own wrist. It wasn’t his to bear.
. 
I’ll return this to you when you can wear it again, he told his Father. He remembered saying as he bid his Father goodbye.
. 
He asked his brothers if he could continue to keep the timepiece. His brother told him it suited him and that it fits him well. It fit his wrist well.
. 
He finally put it on his wrist, and beautiful as it was, the Boy could not bring himself to agree with his brother.
. 
He closed the clasp he could feel his wrist struggling to keep the watch afloat. He didn’t think it suited him. It was his now, but it also would never truly be his.
. 
He followed hands of the watch as they moved. They moved as smoothly as they did when the watch was on his Father’s wrist, and he would look over at the timepiece, and his Father’s hand holding his.
. 
He put his hands in his pockets.
. 
The watch seemed heavy to him.

I’ll return this to you when you can wear it again, he told his Father. He remembered saying as he bid his Father goodbye. . He asked his brothers if he could continue to keep the timepiece. His brother told him it suited him and that it fits him well. It fit his wrist well. . He finally put it on his wrist, and beautiful as it was, the Boy could not bring himself to agree with his brother. . He closed the clasp he could feel his wrist struggling to keep the watch afloat. He didn’t think it suited him. It was his now, but it also would never truly be his. . He followed hands of the watch as they moved. They moved as smoothly as they did when the watch was on his Father’s wrist, and he would look over at the timepiece, and his Father’s hand holding his. . He put his hands in his pockets. . The watch seemed heavy to him.
One day I was at @traderjoes justa looking for some snacks and feeling v in need of some positive energy and I saw this orchid and I just put her in my cart on a whim. (I also instantly knew that her name was Pearl) Everyone has told me that orchids are near impossible to care for. My mom has killed like 7. And I wasn’t even sure I could take care of anything at all other than myself (sort of lol). Anyways, I bought her 2 months ago and LOOK AT BABY GIRL THRIVING. She’s doing the damn thing—she’s bloomed several new flowers and she’s just pretty AF. #notbiased
.
Here’s my fool-proof method for caring for an orchid and if yours dies still sry don’t h8 me. Thank you to everyone who gave suggestions!
1. 1/3 cup of room temperature water once a week.
2. Indirect sunlight (mine sits on a table across the room from the window).
3. Remove wood chips/anything covering the roots before watering so that they absorb all the water (I just hold them in my hand when watering and put them back after).
4. Tell that betch she’s beautiful every single day (or maybe talk to her about boys or books or whatever is on your mind because it’s been proven to actually help them grow faster and *fun fact* research shows plants grow faster to the sound of female voices than they do with male voices 💁🏻‍♀️)

It can be intimidating to reach out to your favorite brands but I’m here to tell you why you shouldn’t be afraid and how to successfully pitch collabs to brands! Also, even if you’re just starting out it doesn’t mean you can’t start working with brands. Micro-influencing is huge right now! Link in bio 💓

After @centro_mpls in NE Mpls for happy hour tonight, I had to swing by my favorite outrageous soft serve ice cream place in Minnesota, @mnicecream! It’s down the street from @popolvuh_mpls And right next to @ablebrewery. This is their handmade unicorn 🦄 twist cone with blueberry lemon 🍋 and matcha 🍵 soft serve and all the fun toppings that come on the Camper Cone🍦🌈, which includes graham crackers, carmel, toasted marshmallows, peanut butter🥜, edible glitter ✨ and chocolate bark 🍫. I’ll always support @mnicecream! This was probably my 5th time going since they started just as a food truck summer 2017. #mnicecream #bestofnempls #eeeeeats #icecream #foodporn #mnfoodie #supportlocal #tryitordiet #treatyoself #placestovisit #eatingfortheinsta #eatdrinkdishmpls #nomnom

With smoothie stained pants & dried sweat we took to our front sidewalk.

Sat in the crisp fall air & enjoyed the warm sunlight of the morning. 
Twirling & ripping the fallen leaves, @mumfordandsons playing the background.... This is my favorite now. 
Because it's the one I'm spending with him.

Although Liv loves sneakers for regular wear, once in a while, she likes breaking out my heels and walking around in them in the house... which is exactly what she’s doing right now 😂

Relax... 🙌🏻 #photography #dog
It’s been a day (or maybe a week? month? Losing track....but today was extra). Like, the kind that is super difficult to put into words. Soooo.....I threw on some animal print, poured a l̶i̶t̶t̶l̶e̶ big glass of rosé (see ya later Whole 30 - which I just started Monday, lol), and put on my favorite happy music (currently the new @lauren_daigle album. Go download it, like, now.). Life is unpredictable and messy. You can fight it, or you can trust that it is all working out just the way it is supposed to. Cute shoes help though. 🙃

I’d risk the fall just to know how it feels to fly.

Some days are good, some days are bad. Some days you wish you could just put your life on pause while your brain and emotions catch up so your kid doesn’t have to sit around and repeat herself because your thoughts are louder than anything else. It’s the worst and it makes the days so long. I see her little face just staring at me wondering what’s next. It doesn’t matter how much I love them or how much I want for them, the thoughts are so much louder.

How cute are these cloth diapers from @norasnursery? Cannot wait to see Isaac's tiny baby bum in them. 😍 We will start around 2 months and chose cloth for its gentleness on babe’s skin, environmental impact + cost effectiveness. 🌿💛 I got some questions about laundering, so here's our process... 🌿 Used diapers + liners + wipes go in a bin with baking soda + tea tree oil.
🌿 When it's time to wash we use Thieves laundry soap! If needed we add a couple drops of tea tree directly to the load. I use 1/4 a capful for a load + have had zero issues. 🌿 We use Seedlings Diaper rash cream + had zero issues with it too! 🌿 With Elliot I started out making my own laundry soap, but it didn't clean well, especially as he got older + started solids. #thankgodfor Thieves!

Yoga. The thing that brought me back from sick and tired to happy and healthy 💪😎💁 I've completely neglected my own personal practice since I started teaching regularly over a year ago! 😱 I miss my "me" time on my mat (more like "keep me from going insane" time on my mat 🙃) Today was my #restday in my program (we get 3 a week!) 🙌 so I decided what better time to get back on my mat?! I like to be guided during my personal practice and I feel #luckyAF 🍀 that the same online library I use to access my current program ALSO has a full yoga studio library for ALL your yoga needs! 💻🕉️🤗 #winning 🏆I will forever love the freedom to workout from my home AND have a killer selection of workouts to choose from ♥️✌️👽

Day 17: Book vs. Movie | The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
◻
"These were the lovely bones that had grown around my absence. The connections, sometimes tenuous, sometimes made at great cost, but often magnificent, that happened after I was gone. And I began to see things in a way that let me hold the world without me in it."
◻
In the history of book-turned-movies, I'd say that 'The Lovely Bones' is one of the few that turned into a decent adaptation. However, I must say that the movie was not able to completely capture Susie and her family's demise. The book is the clear winner in that department.
