So yesterday my camera was slashed by the garden hose and then for an unknown period of time sat in a small pool of water. When I picked it up the water poured down from the bottom Ughhh. I have little hope in the revival of it and no insurance on it either.
Whelp, although it not the same at all, at least I still have my old Rebel T6. It might be a while before I can get anything new.
Hello there, Natalie here! I figured it was time for another introduction since there are a lot of new faces here. I’m a twenty something Wife and Momma, and our family recently moved from Colorado to Atlanta, GA 🍑. We have two Aussies 🐾 and love all things outdoors. I’m definitely a morning person and almost always prefer sweet things over salty. My job pays me to wash my face and share about it (I think it’s pretty rad). I talk a lot about my journey (that I’m still on!) of learning more about bravery and beauty, especially in parenting, marriage, hospitality, and my business. I LOVE connecting with friends on this app and will never say “no” to authentic conversation. I’m always down for questions and comments - so now it’s your turn! Introduce yourself below! 👇🏻
🌍 Go Explore Somewhere New 🌎 🚊 ✈️ 🚗 🚲 🚶♀️ 🙌🙌
To say I love to immerse myself in new places & countries is an understatement💕
There are so many amazing things to do or see & many of them on outdoor steps🤔
I totally in-brace my inner child whenever possible especially when travelling 🙌🙌
Seeing things and being silly as you would when you were a child brings out a special kind of magic 🌟
Some people can feel a little self conscious when doing such things in public & worry about what other people normally strangers might think 💭 🤷♀️
Which is kinda silly if we think about it
I bloody love to see people happy & enjoying themselves & most people do 👍
Those that spend there time thinking otherwise & judging others either fall into one of two camps 🤔
Those people that are secretly envious of others ability to show cheer joy in public & the other camp of kill joys 🤷♀️🤦♀️
Most people don’t fall into the last category & if they do we don’t really want to follow their lead now do we 🤷♀️
So next time you find yourself wanting to let your inner child out don’t think twice 🙌
You will lot only create some wonderful memories but also possibly encourage someone else to let their hair down & do the same 🙌🙌🙌 The picture above was one of many that were taken in Bratislava 🙏🙏🙏
Around the old town which is gorgeous by the way ... they have put all kinds of weird & wonderful bronze figures... which you discover as you wander the streets .
From bronze workmen climbing out of a manhole in the ground to characters on benches. My sister & I had so much fun discovering what the streets had to offer while interacting & being general silly with gorgeous statues .
So go & discover somewhere new & lets your inner child discover the amazing delights 🙏🙌🙌 .

Honestly, I’m like this in life. I have this bad habit of being self reliant and proud so it’s no surprise I get frustrated and burnt out. I know- yet find it hard to live out- resting in the Lord, ‘letting go and letting God’. What’s amazing is His grace, love, and sovereignty which picks me up when I fall, which keeps me going when I can’t any more, which reminds me that He is God and I am not.
All I am, where I am, and all I have achieved is only by His power. I am still learning, but I can say that I am at peace because He is God.
The world needs you to SHINE.⠀
Your entire JOB here is to become the most authentic, powerful, BAD-ASS version of you!⠀
So then tell me, WHY do you keep getting in your own way?⠀
The drama, excuses and old stories are just hiding your MAGIC!⠀
The fear, the worry and the stress is NOT part of your job here! All that stuff is actually just getting in your way.⠀
So the real question is: who would you be with out it?⠀
It's time to drop the madness, the struggle, the anxiety my darling. It's time to step up and BECOME the truly magical being that is YOU! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⠀
with love + miracles ✨⠀
This morning as I was scrolling through Instagram, I saw a post on @thegoodquote with the question, “If you could sit on this bench and chat for one hour with anyone, past or present, who would it be?”
*** I quickly scanned my mind searching for someone famous, inspiring, or revolutionary, but my mind was blank. I couldn’t think of anyone. Then, suddenly I knew who I would choose: my grandpa.
*** My father’s father died when I was four years old and while I don’t have many specific memories—two of the most vivid ones I do have are when he yelled at me after I spilled laundry detergent all over the floor and the night I found out he died—I have this overwhelming knowing inside of me that he was my favorite person who ever existed. And that I loved him more than I will ever love anyone.
*** We don’t have to know why we feel what we feel and we don’t need specific memories to explain it. We don’t have to analyze it or question it. Sometimes we just know something, because we feel it.💕

We live in a beautiful world, full of magic when you take the time to stop, and just patiently observe. Sometimes it feels like we sleep through all that we do. Not realising our impact, just thinking about all the stuff that we supposedly ‘need’ and in the process destroying what we actually need. So many of these beautiful animals and others have been poached because of illusions we have created. Habitats destroyed, all because we are greedy. Take some time out today to enjoy nature, to truly appreciate and feel gratitude for the world you live in. What’s your impact, can you reduce it? For anyone that wants to adopt a baby elephant and help support an organisation that helps to raise them and reintroduce them to the Wild please check out David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust @dswt you can visit these beauties at the sanctuary in Nairobi, Kenya.
We took the kids into the city the other day, during the school holidays. I love living in Sydney, and have been here for almost 17 years, yet I still get a buzz and feel like a bit of a tourist, every time I go over the harbor bridge, or see the opera house.
On our trip into the city, we walked over the bridge and decided to go up into one of the pylons. Inside they have all about the history of the bridge, and it made me think about how we start things.
At some point many years ago, someone started the thinking that Sydney would be better off with a bridge linking the harbor.
At the time they had car ferries taking everyone across. While today, we take it for granted and can’t imagine Sydney without it, yet back then, you can imagine the debate about cost and need, when I’m sure many thought the ferry was enough.
When have you had an idea, or thought about starting something, but then you have talked yourself out of it or someone has talked you out of it? What voice has told you that the car ferry was enough, and that you don’t need your harbor bridge?
If you don’t fight for what you believe in, or what you want, then all you will ever get is the car ferry, when you, and everyone you are helping, could be benefiting from your harbor bridge.
Isn’t it time you started something?
I don't have much, but I'm feeling rich because I have enough food, and even have the opportunity to plant my own foods.
I stay under a good roof. True, village houses are considered ugly by some people, but it is good enough for me because I'm happy in there. 😊 . .
I'm able to make money with what my hands created when wearing my leather jewelry maker apron.
I can keep my skin care and hair treatment routines simple and low with oils that I make myself.
I'm able to help other people dealing with dental health problems when wearing my dentist coat.
I could go to mountains, beaches, forests, rivers, etc, whenever I want.
In short, I have everything I need.
You too, I believe are rich.. When you're grateful and satisfied with what you have that's already fulfill your needs. And letting go of so much unnecessary wants or things that are beyond your own control to have. . 🙏 . .
Semoga.. Kita semua ini kaya.
Karena termasuk ke dalam golongan manusia yg pandai mensyukuri nikmat-Nya.. Pandai bersabar dan tak pernah putus asa berikhtiar manakala belum tercukupi kebutuhannya. Amin. 😊 .
I've found this was a recurring theme for today and felt the need to share. You are not obligated to be anyone or anything, but yourself for others. You shouldn't have to hold your tongue for fear of displeasing someone or upsetting them. You shouldn't feel obligated to be a good friend to people who have only hurt you. Part of self love, acceptance and living your authentic life is learning to set boundaries for yourself. By setting boundaries you are not only taking control of the energies and content you allow in your life, you are also exhibiting a form of self love and teaching others exactly how you would like to be loved. Don't continue allowing people to treat you in ways that drain your energy or make you feel bad about yourself. Speak up. Stand up for yourself. Be stern about the things you do and do not want in your energy field. YOU deserve to be happy and have your feelings matter just as much as anyone else. Take steps today to draw the line and show yourself some true love ❤️🙏🏼 #reikihealing#chakrahealing#settingboundaries#selflove#liveauthentically
Rockin a new skill! Officially certified in color correction & pigment removal. ✨
There are more and more people out there doing quick and cheap courses with very little practice and also some being self-taught...which is straight up cray cray and frustrating. I'm getting more correction work walk through my door as this industry is not yet properly regulated, this may be changing very soon...I hope! ✨
Awesome day with these ladies and the team at @huntingtonacademy - thank you guys!! 🙌🏼 #learningfromthebest#trainingtobeabadass
Ouch! This one can hurt a bit. It is our nature when we read this to think of all the things we see as negative and we DO NOT want to take responsibility for it. All the bad shit that is going on couldn't possibly be a result of anything I have done! It has to be someone elses fault. NOW....we have no problem taking credit for all of the amazing things that happen in our life. It doesn't work that way. We get to be responsible for both through the choices we make. Take the time to get real about how you can turn around the percieved negative stuff by making different choices. That's all😀 #personaldevelopment#growth#mindset#fitafterforty#fitat45#healthylifestyle#lifestylementor#liveauthentically#singlemom#onlyparent#tribe#healthy
so i’ve been wanting to make a personal blog for some time now, a sort of digital photobook of my life and musings, i guess. really, the only thing keeping me from it is ((was!)) me.
so, i’ve finally decided to take the plunge.
in truth, i’m not trying to be the best blog, perfectly edited & full of profound thoughts. if anyone’s watched the greatest showman (which i loove), there’s this song called “this is me” & it’s all amazing and beautiful, but there’s this one little part that i think speaks for a lot of us ⇢
i’m not scared to be seen,
i make no apologies,
this is me.
for me personally, i struggle a lot with anxiety. feeling like i’m good enough. for myself, for others. to really ever feel free, we have to be in a place where we can gather up all we are, throw it out to the world, and say, i’m not afraid. in all truth, i’m not in that place. but, i hope that there’s a future where i am, and that maybe this blog of mine can help carry me there.
so,,, before i sign out, you might want to know a little bit about me:
i’m 16 & in 11th grade.
i love to write more than anything (my dream is to see my name on a bookcover in my local barnes & noble).
i also love to sing (i have a soft spot for piano ballads & retro hits). if i’m home alone, you can bet i’m jamming on the piano downstairs.
i love books (and book recommendations!) and netflix and peanut butter. i really really love the greatest showman and lord of the rings.
most importantly, i’m a daughter of a King!! i struggle with my faith, and i’m definitely not an all-knowing theologian, and as of now, i’m trying to rebuild all the pieces i’ve been letting go in my relationship with Jesus, but it’s still a big part of what defines me, even amidst the ebb and flow of my faith. i’ve been letting go recently, having a lot of doubts. so my faith on here isn’t to paint a picture of some perfect Christian. honestly, it won’t. i struggle and i fail. this whole blog is a billboard of the real, messy me, and faith is a part of that. take or leave it, as they say.
so honeys, thanks for reading!! v excited about this journey && hope y’all will follow me on whatever path i take ⇢
lots of love,
Mood: I took a gamble and it's paying off 🙌🏾🙌🏾 No alcohol for me, BUT my bar aka spice rack is fully stocked with #goldenmilk essentials cause I need to all the way unwind!!
What's your drink of choice to settle your anxiety and celebrate your wins?
I spent the morning at the bookstore looking for something to read Baby Wilson, because apparently baby can hear now!
I ended up finding 3 books. And yes there is most definitely a travel book in the bunch, babies travel love starts now. 👶🏼🌍
