Right now. Right here. Please let this summer last for ever.

Checked out Trout Lake Nature Preserve with Becky this morning. We got an early start, but apparently no start is early enough at this time of year in Florida. Only a few steps in, we were melting into puddles of sweat. The pretty views were worth having to shower twice in one day, though.

My clients come to me feeling overwhelmed because they are trying every new strategy that comes their way so they can get noticed online. Being visible doesn't mean you have to be everywhere. Being visible online means getting in front of YOUR people- your potential clients who are looking for the kind of services you offer. Be clear on who you serve and where they hang out. This is the way you become visible online.

I'm always here for the food 🐭🎡
I'm always here for the food 🐭🎡
Two years ago this month, I was in treatment for my eating disorder. It was hard. It’s still hard. I’m not recovered. I’m not 100% healed and I live fully knowing I will never be. My mental illnesses are a part of who I am and are things I have to deal with on a daily basis. There are good days and even good moments. If I’m honest, no shocker to most, but I’m struggling. My moods are all over, erratic behavior, self destructive coping mechanisms. I’ve seen better days, that’s for sure. There hasn’t been a day when I haven’t wanted to hurt myself or worse. That’s just my reality. Even despite the struggles, I’ve come far. I’ve gained weight, I’ve been working... There are up and down moments. This life isn’t easy for any of us and there are days when I have no idea how I’ll make it from one moment to the next. There are 4 people who keep me alive, no matter how dire things get, and for them I am eternally grateful for their love 🌸
Going into treatment isn’t a cure, but it helps. Gone are the days of being so sickly thin that people were afraid to touch me. Even my own doctor (chiropractor). And now, he has no fears about breaking me. Literally. I eat what I want, when I want. I call on a friend or do some positive coping mechanisms when triggered. Not always, but I try my best. Sometimes things are just so overwhelming and I break. Thing is, I’ll always strive for being better mentally and physically. I’m in a constant state of recovery. Best decision I ever made. {July 17, 2018}

common lore says ‘bloom where you are planted’. while i totally understand the beauty behind the mantra - create adventure in the every day, find wonder in your backyard, cultivate awe in the simplest pleasures - something has always left me wanting with this wisdom.
🏠🏔🏖
when my little sister was 4 years old, she sat down with the elementary school principal to see if she could start kindergarten a year early. to test her readiness, he asked her a series of questions, ending with the following: Which of these animals belong in the zoo - a pig, a chicken, or a lion. she took a deep breath into her little 4-year-old body, looked him square in the eyes, and said ‘no animal ever belongs in a zoo’. he registered her that day.
🐷🐔🦁
perhaps wild truly isn’t meant to be tamed. perhaps freedom is only possible without the cage. and perhaps some of us are more like swallows than sunflowers - frantically beating our wings against the roots that yearn to plant us.

Happiness can not be traveled to, owned, earned worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude. 
P.S. i went hiking this weekend 😛

According to my human app, I walked 22,400 steps that day. I didn’t mind one bit though. Montmartre is full of character and I had the best pistachio ice cream there. Move over gelato, I think French ice cream has you beat. Why is no one talking about French ice cream??!? .

On my spur of the moment road trip into Oregon with one of my close friends, I made it a point to finally see this beauty up close & in person.
•
This moment was extra special for sentimental reasons, the first time my mom met my grandma was here at this fall. It’s one of my favorite photos of them and words can’t describe how much those people mean to me.

During this trip I felt a little bit closer to my angel up above, love you grandma rusty. ♥️
& a big thank you to Leif for being my road trip buddy.

Starting to think life is one big balance act. 3,000ft up with the wind about to blow you over, rainy days, muddy trails and a whole lot of happiness even if you’re about to fall off the edge. Why? Because you’re on a mountain. 
This last week I disappeared from the world all the while my computer and camera got stolen. But life at 24 isn’t actually so bad though when you’re able to stand on the edge, look up & dream about all the things you want to keep on pursuing even when the universe seems against you 🙏🏽 Here for a reason & it’s about to get a whole lot better. Life is a balancing act, stay balanced 🍒

I've realized lately that for the things that matter, you gotta fight for them. But not the fight you may be thinking. 
For me, that looks like if I want to move to another country one day, I have to be diligent about pursuing it. If I want to cultivate my creativity, I need to take the time to do it and step away from my distractions, Netflix for example (although, I love). If I want to continue to embrace living vulnerably, I need to check my heart. If I want to make sure I have my quiet time in the morning, honor my sleep time better. 
And if I want to feel that I'm truly worthy, I need to love myself well. 
So, yeah. I think that those kinds of things are worthwhile to fight for. 📷: @tvuski, Wilderness extraordinaire

"A lot of people like the idea of being a designer. There’s a lot of misconception surrounding what it really means; it's not all fun and games (and paint colors and fabric selections). To be successful in this field it means being highly organized, a problem-solver, some days a therapist and most importantly, managing money." -Marjan Sattarzadeh, Owner/Lead Designer, Jan. // Interview link in bio! #babeswhohustle

One of the most uniquely charged and challenging topics that I touch upon when counselling youths is... screen time. Did you know that research indicates that children should not have access to screens until they are 18 months old? From ages 2-5 an hour per day is recommended and for older children two hours total time should be the maximum. Too much screen time disrupts sleep, impacts short and long term attention and executive function, interferes with social engagement, and can breed behavioural difficulties. However, children spend an average of 7 hours per day glued to their smart phones, computers, tablets, and tv screens. While the media likes to blame children for their screen time, it’s important to remember that developmentally children lack mature executive function and the cognitive skills required to make wise decisions around technology. As parents, counsellor, educators etc. it is our job to help children manage their lives until their executive functions (ex. the ability to solve complex problems and set goals while delaying gratification) mature. Think of it this way - adults generally have fully developed executive function and the capacity to prioritize, plan, manage attention, consider the future, and control impulses... yet, they still struggle to put down their smart phones and stop them from being a distraction. What does this mean for children? — I would like to challenge those of you who have or work with children to think about how often you use your device and how it serves you and to remember that you get to decide when/how much screen time is okay when children are in your care. Children need us - they need us for affection, limit setting, and guidance. Technology is a tool and it’s up to us to teach children the skills to keep it in a healthy place.📱

Does anyone else cringe a little when you see a quote online that says, “happiness is a choice?” I kind of agree and kind of disagree with this statement and it’s something I’m deliberating in this week’s Sunday Edit that I posted recently! ⠀
⠀
Also inside is where I’m headed to for my next vacation, a new eyeliner that lights my eyes up that I’ve been wearing every day, what I talked about at a recent therapy appointment, and a few of my picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. ⠀

Today has been filled with doctor appointments, health visitor and pharmacy trips...but hopefully now we’re getting to the bottom of little Freddie’s crying and pain. It’s looking like it’s Silent Reflux (it should not be called silent🤨) so hoping the meds will be solving it soon. But on the plus side I’ve been cleared now to start the gym, so I’ve dug out the Fitbit, started on the smoothies...and just need to actually get to the gym now as this pooch ain’t shifting itself 😂 (Also I have a code if anyone fancies £10 off their first selection of smoothies: TECUYASI. The cookie dough one is delish! 🍪😋) .

Smoothie goodness from @batchorganics 👌🏼 Today has been filled with doctor appointments, health visitor and pharmacy trips...but hopefully now we’re getting to the bottom of little Freddie’s crying and pain.

I was trying to get him to take a photo with me. Obviously he wasn’t feeling it 🐶 
Do any of you have any pets?

Life is all about perspective. How you relate to what's happening around you. You can either look down and block out the world. Or listen when it knocks and gives you a nudge. A little Opportunity knocking or so they say.. wake up calls and feeling like your voice matters are insanely amazing to experiance. When you get to feel all those emotions over two days.. it's a little mind blowing... #itshappyal
