“Who cares about what people think?” I said to my sister while I encouraged her to pose for the camera. For someone who often prioritises the opinions of others, it was a surprise that those words came out of my mouth. Of course I have to practice what I preach, so I decided to join her! And together, we projected our most awkward poses in public! And for a minute or two, we’re carefree about the society that does nothing but judge. Oh boy, was it empowering? To live freely—no eyes to please, no expectations, standards and rules to abide and no judgments to listen to. Imagine if we all learn to live unapologetically—not trapped by dogma, but enjoying the freedom of being just ourselves. 🌻#projectmalaya 📷: @jazter_roque
Of course, there's an easier way. You can stop overworking, over-analyzing and overdoing things... Buuut... are you READY TO LET IT BE EASY?
Are you willing to let it be easy?
Or you'd rather work harder, hold on to the thought that if you work hard, you'd get what you want?
Or hold on to the thought that you don't deserve what you want so you work yourself to the ground and sabotage your success?
Are you willing to let your BS beliefs go?
Once you're willing, you'll be ready.
Once you're ready, TAKE ACTION.
Inspiration wants to be expressed.
Don't let it go to waste.
💙Holding hands. 💜Feeling understood. ❤️Holding space for someone and encouraging. 💪Feeling empowered.
The dance of the women I coach and I.💃🌺💃 I love living my passion as a Love and Success coach.

Love and light!
This one goes out to the amazing human that inspires me from a space of acceptance, love, compassion, and powerful conviction. Thank you to my mentor @xoamandafrances for changing my life for the better. .
In only a few months of answering the call and signing up for my first course with her, I was catapulted into alignment with my truth in a most profound way. I learned how to surrender and allow my inner guidance of truth to drown out the limiting beliefs that had kept me from stepping up and out into the world.
I am always riveted by her Raw Authenticity and deep caring in creating massive results for her clients. .
I am most excited for her new course - Sell From Your Soul and feel I must share it with anyone any and everyone that is listening.
It is both a privilege and honor to share your great work @xoamandafrances .. I am thrilled to see what you have in store for us!!
Details for those who are feeling called... learn more in my bio link.

@futurehairtrainingcentre thank you so much for making my hair so beautiful just in time for my media adventure in Los Angeles! Swipe for pics ❤️ This chic and fun hair salon in downtown Vancouver (Granville Street in between Drake and Davie) is affordable because it’s a training centre, but don’t be fooled by its name - these stylists know what they’re doing!

With the amount of time I spend in front of my laptop on a daily basis, I think I might need to use some anti-glare specs soon. Nonetheless, my weekend has been productive that I surprised even myself. It was kind of weird walking inside the forest and around the lake while answering inquiries about my services left and right. I’m not complaining at all - I’m saying “keep ‘em coming!”. Like my daughter always says “Ready for action!” And to that I say “Jeg er klar!” which is Dansk for “I am ready!”. Cheers to the coming week everyone! I hope you are as excited as I am.
What are you most looking forward to this coming week?
What an awesome weekend! Much love & a huge thank you to @mtshastaskipark @shastabasecamp and all the others that made this amazing weekend biking event happen! Enduro race Saturday and Downhill race Sunday...good friends, good vibes, five crashes but they were healed with everlasting laughs! My soul is full...I’m a tired girl...time for a nap 🚲 ❤️ 💤
"Love is the absence of judgment." ~ Dalai Lama.
When we judge another, or ourselves we are turning away from love.
Here's the thing; Its impossible to judge and feel love simultaneously, because judgment and love are at the opposite ends of the emotional spectrum. Have you ever tried? When we judge we create separation:
➾ separation from ourselves
➾ separation from others
➾ separation from love
Just add love to dissolve judgment - it's always the secret ingredient!
I love the simplicity of linen. Linen is a natural fabric made with flax fibres. Cultivating flax (sp. Linum usitatissimum) creates far less pollution than cotton does. In fact, many linen from Europe are certified organic and sustainable. European linen also have longer strands, so they are more durable.

Yesterday was hands-down one of the best days of my life. I got to #film the #teaser for my #comedy#horror#featurefilm , #LastChancetoScream . This has been a #passionproject of mine for two plus years. It means the world to me that so many of my talented friends donated their skills and time. My fellow lead #actresses and #producers @brittbondd, @rebekahbrandes, and @skye.englund, thank you for agreeing to do this damn thing with me and for keeping me sane throughout the process. @jenniferbarlow007, thank you for understanding my silly humor and for getting the most out of every scene. @la.kiwi, thank you for letting us take over your beautiful home and for playing a suspiciously convincing murderer. @amcphoto32, @helloimaimeee, @shooting_duck, and @isabelledellar, thank you for wearing a million different hats and for doing so with a smile. @cliffcisneros, thank you for making me laugh and for letting us objectify you. @meganhart3809, thank you for making everyone look beautiful—as always. @marinellivincent, thank you for saving the day last minute.

Can’t wait to launch our #campaign later this summer! #LC2S#womeninfilm
Inspiration comes from so many places for me. I could say it as a general statement that nature is my inspiration, but I know it’s so much more then that and I often struggle with how to put it into the right words.
Each painting is sparked by a combination of things... a simple word like “freedom.” Or the way I saw the wind catch the field grass and It made me want to find a way to add that fluid motion. Or the simple inspiration that there is always more to learn and explore so I just try something uncomfortable and keep working through it.
I honestly never saw this life coming in a million years and maybe one day it will look completely different. But for now I’m just trying to be present everyday. I’m trying to learn and grow so I can discover more about myself and this world I live in.
Thank you all for being a part of this crazy journey. You guys are the best!! [ new art coming soon: “Spring Florals no.2” 30x30 acrylic on canvas ] dm if interested.
It’s been one year since the release of the 2nd edition of Easter Ann Peters’ Operation Cool. It was first published in 2012. I wrote this story because I found next to zero books for kids about addiction. The story flew out of me fast as if the protagonist was telling me her story. She felt so real!! I spent 2 years editing and improving it. And when I received the first note from a 12 year old who read it and said it made her realize her mother’s alcoholism wasn’t her fault, all of the hard work was more than worth it. Be the change.
As a people pleaser, saying “No” is not really a part of my vocabulary and I will gladly burn myself out at both ends in order to make sure everyone around me is happy🕯 Bad thing? Not necessarily. But it meant that taking care of myself took a backseat and I got VERY unhappy 😔
🏔Not making time to do things I love (hiking, reading, spending time with Jesus)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Which in turn meant I was always tired 💤, my anxiety was a frequent visitor😫, and I often felt like I was letting MYSELF down. I KNEW I could be better for myself and for others.
Once I started focusing on MY happiness first✨, and doing the things that fuel my fire🔥, I noticed that I was able to help people and love them EVEN BETTER than when I wasn’t taking care of myself. I had the energy, I had the passion, and I had the CONFIDENCE to do all the things 💃🏻
Even better is that I wasn’t doing it alone. I have a community of women working on similar goals that push me to be better and love on me regardless of my shortcomings 💕 so shoutout to my #SoulTribe for helping me be a better ME so that I can be better for the people I LOVE with my whole heart ♥️

• SPACE IN THE PACE • Tilting versus balance •
I’m taking regular gems from a book by the name of Destination Simple by @brookemcalary, in particular on the idea of ‘tilting’. “Tilting is about being aware of the changing pressures of life and being flexible, while also rejecting the idea that everything needs to be perfectly balanced every single minute of every day and that anything less is a failure”. While aligning with this concept is one thing, adopting it via practicing willingly having things out of ‘balance’ is another - ain’t that the truth.
Also of importance in the above reference is the word ‘awareness’. Awareness comes about from building windows of space into our weeks to determine whether pressures are changing in our life and whether we’re utilising the flex we need.
