I love a good #selfcaresunday but it’s time for a mindset shift. 🧠 Running ourselves ragged all week, then spending all day on Sunday in some kind of #selfcare recovery mode ain’t it. Our souls need that care and feeding daily, not a feast or famine mentality. ❤️ I’m not saying don’t indulge in the extra weekend time for some indulgent self-loving. 💕 I’m just saying, let’s pay attention to giving ourselves good love on the Monday-Saturday, too! 📆 As ever, no need to break the bank or cut out of work for an hours-long self-care session. But let’s make a mindset shift that says “It’s Tuesday and instead of powering into the next meeting frazzled and thirsty, I can stop and *mindfully*, *intentionally* hydrate my body for 30 seconds.” (Mindful + intentional might = “I’m pausing; I’m drinking water; I’m feeling the wet water hydrate my body; I’m doing this ❣️because I love myself❣️ and my body needs water.” Bear with me here. It’s hokey, but it works.)💦 Whatever it looks like for you, bringing your awareness to your body’s need in any given moment ... and then tending to that need for one little minute, is the stickiest kind of self-care I know. 🙋🏽‍♀️ And it’s the kind that moves mountains—or at least shifts perspectives in a way that gets you giving your soul some of that good love EVERY SINGLE DAY. 👉🏽 Your needs are important enough to pay attention to every day. 👈🏽 Try it and see if the reward doesn’t make the effort worth it. 💗 #selfcareeveryday #selfcareeverydamnday

Yours truly, modeling our latest creations. Paradise Coast Beads “Miss Buffy” Drop Earrings. These beauties are named for Miss Buffy, one of the most loving souls we’ve ever known. A fitting name for earrings made with the stone of unconditional love.
*

These 14 kt gold filled statement beauties can be created in medium (3.5”) and long (4.5”) and are made with freshwater pearls, rose quartz and calico scallop shells. *

The fair and lovely Rose Quartz, with its gentle pink essence, is a stone of the heart, a crystal of unconditional love. It carries a soft feminine energy of compassion and peace, tenderness and healing, nourishment and comfort. It speaks directly to the heart chakra, dissolving emotional wounds, fears and resentments, and circulates a divine loving energy throughout the entire aura. Reawakening the heart to its own innate love, it provides a deep sense of personal fulfillment and contentment, allowing one the capacity to truly give and receive love from others. [Raphaell, 82-85][Simmons, 331][Hall, 236]
*

Please be aware that these are one of a kind creations with real freshwater pearls, rose quartz and seashells, so actual measurements may vary.

In the final breath of daybreak
I find your spirit there
the salty taste upon my lips
a zephyr in my hair
and even though you’re miles away
it’s like you’re here with me
my toes are grounded in your earth
your heart sails through my sea

Sometimes my thoughts and feelings overwhelm me.
Sometimes I take a hot shower and they make nice.

With mindfulness, you can establish yourself in the present in order to touch the wonders of life that are available in that moment. Nhat Hanh

I love to knit. It's been a hobby of mine on and off my adult life, and I appreciate the meditative qualities of knitting. It keeps me grounded, helps me to work through things I ponder. It's a great hobby for doing in between the things. Molly is playing at an indoor park while I work out some creativity and "me" time. 
What lights you up? Are you an artist at heart but have a technical job? Are you career-driven or enjoy staying at home? I love what @beautycounter allows me to do. Gives me the freedom of spending quality time with my daughter, knit, watch movies, practice yoga... all the while helping folks make #betterbeauty choices in their lives. This is what I call a win-win. #cleanbeauty #beautycounter #everyonemeanseveryone #knitting #seattle #pnwonderland #beautycounterconsultant #staypresent

When you are deep in a practice, you are in that experience of oneness, of union, of the true Self... to maintain this when eyes are open and life is happening is the ultimate test of a yogi’s evolution. Can you remain distant and keep watching the play or do you get wrapped up in all the drama and action of the mind?

I was having this exact conversation with a girlfriend yesterday. We can't just be working out the external when the internal is cactus. Our mental health plays a huge role in our physical health. 
Trauma gets caught in our bodies and stored, which over time will run out of room and rear it's ugly head. .

We shouldnt wait until our health begins to diminish to look after ourselves. Start today, in this very moment. Only you can truly look after you, nothing is more important 💖 xx

The most attractive thing about you is not your perfect hair, your perfect outfit, your perfect teeth or your perfect body - it’s simply your presence, your engagement, and the way you you make people feel. 💗

It's the weekend and a good time to put down your phone. Unplug from notifications and social media noise. A bit of "JOMO" (joy of missing out) can be a great break.

Stay Connected in Life!!💚⚡️Great Words By Hilarious Yet Wise @trewrussellbrand 🎆 #meditation #staypresent #enjoythemoment #carpediem
How many times do you look forward to “the next thing” instead of appreciating where you are? Probably a lot. Like the time you felt ill and just wished you could be at home in bed. Or the boring presentation you had to sit through when all you could dream about was dinner later in the evening with your partner or best friend. Don’t allow the NOW to be a thing you can throw away. Be present fully and appreciate the experience. Change your perception so you can appreciate the moment. It is your choice. .

This simple Cliche has sooo much meaning to me. It was definitely an uncharted territory for me. Now it has become my Norm. I’ve been reflecting a lot and where I’ve come since this time last year. I’ve recalled memories and stories that brought me to life and have ripped me apart. This past year has brought me more struggles and success. I will never be the person a lot of people used to know me as but I will always remember the lessons learned while I was on that rough road. I can’t even wrap my head around it. Everything has been so surreal. I have never in my life felt so free and at peace.  Almost like being born again and learning to, as I call it Finding True Self. I continue to dig deep and get to the root of my emotions. It has lead me to a new life, my self discovery, with new beliefs, experiencing new and more emotions that I never or hadn’t felt in years. I’ve had my fair shares of mistakes in my life but they’ve led me to make the changes that were much needed. I was Lost, but now I can see the Straight Path. It’s extremely hard to deal with emotions, to express myself and handling my feelings, so here’s a piece of me, vulnerable and raw; ——————M&M’s——————
Recently the desire to drink has come back with vengeance. I REFUSE to go back. Backwards. I REFUSE to give in. I REFUSE to feed the addiction. The love that I have for myself, all my healing and self discovery, because I don’t stay silent, I’m held accountable, and knowing it’s a TEMPORARY feeling, I REFUSE to sink. I REFUSE to die. If I can do it, you  most definitely can too! You are not alone. Just for today, one day at a time.. #needisayanymore? #staypresent #allyouneedistoday #makememoriestoday #balanceoftheuniverse

I attended a quarterly conference today where I got to hear some major words of wisdom from some of the top leaders in this business 🎤💥...there were several things that resonated with me, but the one takeaway message was to make sure you find your people...bc when you go through a storm (trust me, you will) you BETTER have that group of rockstars there waiting to pick you up when you don't wanna keep going 🤲💝...they are the ones who will pick you up, link arms with you, and brave the storm with you until you see the sun shining again...⛈🌦🌥

"You will never have this day with your children again. Tomorrow, they will be a little older than they were today. This day is a gift. Just breathe, notice, study their faces and little feet. Pay attention. Relish the charms of the present. Enjoy today. It will be over before you know it."

Today has been one of those days. You know those days when you plan to be extremely productive with your life admin and general organisation but it doesn't really go to plan? .
.
I managed a gorgeous walk in the sunshine, a small bit of winter/summer wardrobe reorganisation but then I pretty much flopped. The walk must have taken it out of me, despite spending most of yesterday resting.

I started to feel very frustrated, especially given some of the changes I've been making to improve my health recently. But then I remembered how two years ago I couldn't even walk all the way around the park, so actually I should be grateful for being able to do that, not everyone is so fortunate.

We all have moments of frustration, but the trick is to recognise these and move forward. It's like changing the radio station when you don't like a song, keep switching your thoughts from negative to positive. It's easier said than done, but we'll get there ✨✨

🔸Frustration🔸 . . Today has been one of those days. You know those days when you plan to be extremely productive with your life admin and general organisation but it doesn't really go to plan? . . I managed a gorgeous walk in the sunshine, a small bit of winter/summer wardrobe reorganisation but then I pretty much flopped. The walk must have taken it out of me, despite spending most of yesterday resting. . .

When I first started to meditate I definitely was challenged, I couldn’t get that moment when my brain was empty but then I finally realized it wasn’t about having an empty mind but accepting all thoughts and letting them come and go and as I practiced it became  easier and now I feel off in a day without being able to meditate and clear through my thoughts and feelings. ⠀⠀
I highly recommend meditation and accepting to silence the mind sometimes and let the thoughts pass through effortlessly. 💚💚

Food for thought 💭☺️ .

I really quite like this 🙏 .

Was chatting to a colleague recently about people who easily get annoyed or offended by things (I’m sure we all get irked by various people or situations, and even social media posts 😅). .

Pema Chodron’s “Coming closer to Ourselves” , suggests walking just a few feet along a busy road, consciously noticing all your prejudices.  As in “like the look of that person, that item in the shop, don’t like that smell or the way that person looked at me”. Essentially all our likes and dislikes - maybe in just a few minutes of walking. What we might come to realise is that without really knowing it, we have many! And before we know it, the mind has conjured up a great big novel of meaning around those prejudices.  It’s all mind made and can shut us down very quickly. If we take a deeper look into those prejudices or ability to be offended by certain things easily, we might just get to know ourselves a little better, as we take responsibility for our reactivity. .

My brother used to say my fuse was so short I just went bang 😂 but maybe with age and a bit more awareness that’s a little more tame. Maybe the key is just to notice, then we give ourselves time to be more responsive and therefore less reactive 💚

Maybe they call this pose infinity pose because you will never quite have all the flexibility you need for it.

Or that's just me who knows.

The Boys are Back in Town- maybe it’s because I’m running 🏃🏽‍♀️ again? Lol 😂 (the last time we were this good was when I ran a marathon) Whatever it is keep it up Hawks! #birthdaygirl #birthday #staypresent #iowahawkeyes #iowa #iowagirl #boysarebackintown #gohawks #happyhomecoming #inheaventhereisnobeerthatswhywedrinkithere #untilthegameiswon
"If there is truly nothing that you can do to change your here and now, and you can't remove yourself from the situation, then accept your here and now totally by dropping all inner resistance.⠀
⠀
The false, unhappy self that loves feeling miserable, resentful, or sorry for itself can then no longer survive.⠀
⠀
This is called surrender. ⠀
⠀
Surrender is not weakness. ⠀
⠀
There is great strength in it. ⠀
⠀
Only a surrendered person has spiritual power. Through surrender, you will be free internally from the situation. You may then find that the situation changes without any effort on your part. ⠀
⠀
In any case, you are free." ⠀

Avocados are one of my favorite fruits, rich in healthy fats, magnesium (nature's relaxer), fiber, and many other vitamins and minerals important to our health (especially hormone balancing as fats are the building blocks of many hormones). There are many types of avocados, and these here are your slightly larger ones, the Choquette, which originates in south Florida. And can even take 5-10 years from seed to tree, and then once grown, months for the avocado to ripen. ⠀

Kind of like life. My mom has this memory of me as a little girl sitting by the swimming pool and not wanting to go in. I just sat there. Until, I decided to slowly get in, started to get used to the water, and then years later I became a competitive swimmer. ⠀

The seed is planted, now do we have what it takes to grow? It's easy to get wrapped in 'thing should happen at this time', but deep down if we know ourselves and what we have to contribute to the world, we will honor our process because that's what gives us the capacity to be unique and contribute to the world. It's where we end up and how we feel. This tree can take a decade to grow, but think of how it can then take months to make many nourishing avocados, yet it had to really take time in the beginning. Just a friendly reminder to stay present and that you are where you're meant to be ❤️ ⠀
