PART 2: So students, in order to grow you have to admit what the feeling really is to yourself. As you grow— ask questions about the things you tend to shove away. My leg doesn’t go as high as hers. Why? What steps make me self conscious? Why? My body doesn’t feel like dancing today. Why? Do I feel left out? Why? Am I tired? Why? Am I searching for love? Why? Am I searching for acceptance? Why? Often the whys are easy to address when you admit them.
So spot negativity. Negativity that’s either coming from someone else’s energy or your own energy. Admit the whys. Then make a game plan. Offer yourself some grace that you are human. Own it. Control it. And conquer it.
Growing means being a student. Be a student to your own emotions and own life. Learn and then test yourself. See if you’ve actually learned. Then KEEP learning. #honesty#teacherbecomesstudent#sayit#shesaidit#ownit#bereal#mindfulness#itsmorethandance#itslife#REALSTUFF#saythethingsyourenotsupposedtosay
“Transcendence is nothing without immanence. Enlightenment is nothing if it is not warm and wild and sticky and gooey and human too. Awareness is nothing if it is not radically intimate with this gorgeous physical form. Nonduality is nothing if it is not a tantric love affair with the mess of duality.
Holding the world, lightly, blessing it. There is no divine love without human love... Let spirituality be nothing less than a celebration of the wholeness in our utter brokenness. Let us play with the paradoxes! Let our fragility be our power!
Let the dogmas collapse under their own weight. Let the moment be the teacher. Let the guru be the birdsong, the morning traffic, the touch of a friend, the tingling in the belly. The dawn and the sunrise. The ocean and the light.
Life, life, life.
Let the holy books dissolve into a fresh new moment. Let us bow to the ordinary, prostrate ourselves before it.
There are no experts, here in the heart...” - Jeff Foster
Mahalo Ke Akua Always.
We share some really deep life stuff.
We pray together, for each other and for others. We do for each other and others.
Our first ministry is at home...our ohana.
WE DO IT ALL FOR THE GLORY OF GOD.
Finding the balance is a daily effort for me. I cry. I laugh. I live. I KEEP IT REAL.
Leading this ministry has taught me so much about myself and about people.
For those who feel like you can't come back because you have too much going on or feeling overwhelmed...just make sure you're not making excuses (I don't need or want to know, it's between you and God)...choose JESUS...not the problems. Everyone has stuff but the hearts are here for the Glory of God.
You're always welcome.
Everyone is always welcome.
I have so much more to learn...The Word.
I've been blessed to meet people of all walks and have opportunities to build relationahips...Kingdom Build.
I am truly blessed.
PS...This is serious business and sometimes we do have fun as we lesrn.
Dont take your gears off of buying bad stuff, think how you can use everything for better.
If you don't have a single penny to not use for anything but making a better future, useless stuff like sweets are out of question..
Think of how you can win instead of trying to avoid loss.
I was sitting on the couch while Harmony plays at friend’s house and the two little take a nap thinking about how incredible this little girl is. Harmony is one of my rainbow babies. She is a gift from God to us. A lot of people think we named her Harmony because we are musicians but really we named her Harmony because it implies unity. When Harmony was born we needed harmony in our lives and we needed joy. Her name spoke that over our family. Even now she bring so much Harmony and Joy to the people in her life. She hates it when people don’t get along. She is so empathetic and caring towards other. She is strong. She has faced a heart producer and a brain surgery and conquered them. She walked up to every Disney Character and confidently struck a pose for every picture. She just did her first ever ballet recital and rocked it even though she had only just learned the routine since we we out of town the two weeks they were putting all there choreograph together. She is gaining confidence in learning as well. She is inspiring. .
1. Downloading new apps expands your knowledge of what is out there. Try everything, most of the apps are free after all.
2. Giving yourself time to think and to clear your brain is 60% of the work. Exexution is only 40%. Its harder to get good ideas than to execute on them.
3. New connections are an easy way to get credibility & people to help you out long term. Highly recommend 🦄☕
If you look carefully the Ghanaian Chief in command Mr President is showing Prince Charles’s Mrs how to move😆😊☺️

Delaying work and just scrolling social media feed or procrastinating?
Do it again?
Repeat 20 push-ups.
The point here is that youre loyal to yourself about doing the push-ups more than about doing 30 instead of 29.
Keep doing them until your body says no & your brain wont have you scroll the feed again when you're working.
Long and short insights at your life make a huge difference long term.
Changing your short term mindset determines your actions today.
Long term mindset affects your actions in general.
It's all about how far you want to go.
Time boxing is mostly a technique for people with really hard time schedules, since we always tend to forget something when there's a lot to do..
Time boxing solves this issue by arranging your time into small brackets you can plan out in advance.
Bonus: You tend to use less time on needless activities like watching TV / Netflix, or spending time watching your Instagram feed.
me and this one @an.nmarie33 had the best time in amsterdam! i couldn't have had a better time with anyone else! 💯
she's one of the people that has been there for me way more than most as of late... she shows me nothing but love! everything she does is with a good heart and she's the most unselfish person i know! even on my dark days when i don't wanna talk to a soul she persists and she reminds me of who i am. she's always checking up on me and mine and i've got nothing but love and respect for her.
i spend so much time lifting up others and listening to other people's stuff, it's nice to have a few friends (very few) who are actually there for you... the ones that are genuinely out to be a true friend.
she understands my journey and even when she doesn't understand certain parts she's still there!
it's funny how things work out in life... this woman has shown me what true friendship is! she's opened my eyes up to a lot when it comes to friendships.
it's always the people that you least expect who have your back fully! she's always been there from when i was young and has always shown me genuine love.
the older i get the more i learn and the more i gravitate towards people who are about love and good vibes 🙌🏾❤💫 thank you for being genuine girl and supporting my journey. thank you for being a real friend always!
