Melissa is still on her health journey, but is so happy with the woman she has found! 😁 Here is what Melissa says, "I am a little over 1/2 way through my transformation and have already changed so much. The pic on the left is me 48 lbs heavier. I was uncomfortable and tired all the time. The woman on the right has found her confidence and enjoys life again. I even water-skied this year. I am so thankful I found this program." #keepchoosingwell#itsajourney#livinglifefully
This week I am in San Diego with some of the most inspiring people I know who are all working with the common goal of transforming people's lives. It got me thinking about the last time I had that conscious awareness that life would never be the same again and this could be a positive epiphany for some or a personal challenge or tragedy for others or just a tiny moment that has an expansive ripple effect. I have had many of those moments where I knew my trajectory was changing and that life as I knew it was over.⠀
Those moments can be scary, overwhelming, intimidating or exciting all depending on how you perceive them and how you embrace them. I have the privilege of seeing and facilitating these shifts regularly in my practice because taking control of your health truly changes your whole life. ⠀
As I build my practice and expand, I am constantly looking for new ways to serve those that trust me with their wellbeing and include me within their inner circle to support those changes. So I want to know when was the last time your life changed and what more can I do to help you make the changes that will get you closer to that dream life?⠀
I have new paintings up at @5thstreetflorist! They are looking kind of illusionary with the reflections on the windows. 😉 Thanks Ariana for hanging my work in your shop and supporting art in the community! 😘✨
Hey 👋 everyone, I have some new followers (yay, thank you), so I thought I’d introduce myself.
My name is Sue Korutz and this picture is me. It’s how you’ll usually see me, especially on my stories— unwashed, messy hair, minimal to zero makeup 💄. I embrace my age fully!!
I’m a SWF (please no solicitations lol) living in upstate NY and doing all the hard things on my own & loving it 🙌. Give me an Amen 🙏 if that’s you too!
I have a 30 year-old son & a 1 year-old granddaughter 👶 who is my light & my “why”!
I’ve been a fitness nut since my early 20’s and I can’t imagine it not being a part of my life. I feel I’m in the best shape of my life due to some amazing workout programs. -
I love 🍷 ☕️ 🍫 especially dark 🍫 🛒 and what I ❤️ equally as well is helping others become the best version of themselves in my online virtual gyms 💪
I hope you’ll continue to follow me and thank you to all of you 😘😍
I’m just a msg away if want help becoming the best version of YOU!! #nicetomeetyouguys#livinglifefully#hardworkwinseverytime
Some of the most dynamic people I've ever met have been people who embrace uncertainty, who are willing to put themselves in situations in which they have no idea at all about the outcomes. Most of us fear uncertainty, because we want to feel that we have a bit of control over our lives, but others thrive on it because they want to allow life to contribute to their existence, and they don't want to just keep doing the same old, same old, just for the sake of knowing the outcomes already.
If we spend our lives doing only those things about which we're sure of the outcomes, then where do concepts such as spontaneity and risk come in? Is it really possible to be completely in control of outcomes? We may walk the same path each evening and never explore other paths because we don't know what lies down them, but if we do so, just what will we learn and how will we grow?
Jobs, relationships, places to live, results of actions, sharing our thoughts and emotions, educational programs, investments--all of these and so much more are filled with uncertainty. But they're what life is about.
Sometimes life gives us signs that it wants us to move on to something new. The workload becomes harsher, but the pay doesn't rise accordingly. The weather keeps us sick constantly, while better weather elsewhere could allow us to live more healthy lives. You're passed up for a promotion that you know you deserve because the job was given to the boss's daughter or son. Such situations often call for a leap into the unknown, but our response to such situations is often to just bear with it because we're unsure of how things will turn out if we take a risk.
Taking uncertainty on, though, does keep us vital and creative. When things become difficult, we have to think of new ways to create solutions and make things easier. The mysteries of life give us a vitality that doing the same things over and over again never can give us. Mystery and uncertainty are important catalysts, inspirational elements of life, and it's up to us to search them out and take them on, if we're to make the most of these lives that we've been given.
If you have been wondering where I’ve been...I’m doing life. I’ve been releasing my need to feel tied to social media. I still love social media and don’t have plans to leave. I’m just not planning posts every day or strategically telling my story. I am hanging out in insta stories pretty regularly but my posts are a lot less regular. I’ve got so much I want to share with you and little by little I will. It doesn’t all have to be done today (deep exhale 😌)
My last post would not let me go wide on this. Here is what the two paintings look like side by side. The one really flows into the other, though the colours are stronger in 'Love is all Around'. They will be hung with about a 2" gap between them.
Now that the wedding is over, I can show 'Love is all Around' in its entirety! My neice Monica @thanksithaspockets and her new husband Jamie had chosen 'Pink Flower Sky' as their wedding present, but the spot over their fireplace was crying out for a wider painting than 24"x24". As a surprise I painted this 16"x24" companion piece to go beside it as a sort of dyptich. Congranulations to the new young couple! 💖💖💖💖 Swipe to see 'Pink Flower Sky' and the happy bride and groom. ✨
Daisy’s first day of Pre-K!
She walked in her class, hung up her backpack, talked to her teachers, kissed me goodbye and found her seat. She was so excited!
I hustled out of there before I let the tears take over. The director outside of the door handing out tissues didn’t help😭
Liberty cried the most. She wanted to stay with sister😍
Now I have a little over an hour to clean the house that I left in shambles rushing out the door, before I have to leave to pick her up. I need a nap😴
It’s happening. My first born, my little spunky, pigtail bouncing Daisy starts Pre-K tomorrow. So it’s only 2.5 hours a day, four days a week, so I’m trying not to be toooo dramatic... But, it’s the end of an era guys😭 #daisywynn ❗️WARNING ❗️ Daisy will be on my feed a lot tomorrow😊😂
So who’s joining me online tomorrow to hear about something a bit bloody epic?? 🖤☪️🔎⚛️ Find out how I manage to slip off into the night and end up on the other side of the world ✈️🌍🏴 visiting family 💞 and then off galavanting to stunning European countries like Croatia 🇭🇷🚤🏝 whilst still making an income and not even having to make sales or book “parties”. In fact my job is purely to show what’s possible with this business and if I have to go on epic holidays to do that then I guess I’ll have to 😂✈️🙌🏽🌍🛵🗺 but in all seriousness if you’re a little intrigued message me on Facebook. My link is in the bio. Just be available 8pm AWST #singlemamakickingass#youcantoo
About a month ago, we shared with you a story that included the gardening efforts of Terry Wible, one of the resident-volunteers who oversees the gardens and greenhouse at Luther Acres. After noticing some areas in the garden were experiencing some very wet spots and hard soil, Terry decided to experiment with a straw bale garden.
Well look at the fruits of his labor: Roma tomatoes, pineapple tomatoes, baby eggplant, white eggplant (the size of an egg), bonnet peppers, purple tomatoes and plum tomatoes! He enjoys cooking, and will be including these in his recipes, roasting some, or even eating them plain!
Today we celebrate this princess turning 3. 🎉 What a joy it has been to be your mommy. I love how determined and strong you are already. My mini me. My Lola. Thank you for driving me to be the best version that I can be. Thank you for making me a mommy. You are the best daughter I could’ve ever dreamed up. 🎉💕💎
