Bali!  Took about 4 days to finally catch my stride. Back to two sessions a day, eating everything, napping, bronzing, recovering and clearing the mind. With any downtime spent studying and diving into projects.
.
As amazing Bali is, it’s not just the island but the people that are on it. Apart from the friends you’ve known for years there’s the 5 new people a day that you meet.  Those people on that same wavelength that you are, living a similar life, following a similar path and searching for similar things.  It’s incredible. Just incredible.
.
I often get caught up in the mess that is my own head that I forgot how truly blessed I am to be living the life that I do.  To have the people around me that I have. To make a living doing what I love.
.
Sometimes it takes a couple conversations with some old friends to knock some sense into you.  A few comments and a couple compliments to put a smile on your face and put things in perspective. To know just how much you’re loved and supported.  Things I think we all tend to forget sometimes.
.
Today I spent 45min teaching 4 people to snatch with sticks. By the end watching them get it, I think I was happier than they were. It’s been the highlight of my trip so far.  I continue to see that being in a position to help others is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. Blessed.
.
And special thanks to @pablomonzon for letting me live in his Villa and not making me feel like I’m living in someone else’s villa.

Para un día de la ch*ngada, donde todo lo que podía salir mal salió mal. Ahí yo, sentada en el carro con el drama al mil, escribiendo en el único pedazo de papel disponible con la única herramienta que tenía: un plumón crayola anaranjado.
La vida siguiendo tus sueños no siempre esta en el calendario para compartir en redes sociales, pero quiero decirte que ésto es real. 
Tus momentos más bajos, tus inseguridades, la soledad, la falta de horas de sueño, valen la pena porque son parte de construir tus sueños.

No te rindas! Yo no lo haré.
//
Today was one of the most horrible days I’ve ever had. Everything was wrong and I honestly couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel.

I poured my stress on this used envelope in my car, crying. 
This is real, people! The sleepless nights, the shortness of money, when you feel alone and at your lowest will be worth it bc you are building a business of your own, against everything that can (and will) go wrong.

So don’t give up, I know I won’t (...for now.. jk)

By the time some arrive at their 9-5 job Ive already managed and supervised a class having breakfast, listened to three dramatic stories, heard two silly ones, been the shoulder for at least two tragedies, taken attendance, taught a 70 min class, walked students in perfect formation to their specials class, prepared for a meeting and to teach three more 70 min classes. It continues until 3-4pm and is utterly exhausting. I make it out to be social when I can but more often than not I have nothing left. My number one encourager was my dad and I’m breaking down a little more every time I see an advertisement for a Father’s Day sale. I think I spend so much time in nature bc when everything is quiet enough I can still hear him say, Angel Baby you got this. In “real life” I’m being told I’m not enough but the students tell me every day how much they learn and that’s what keeps me going. I took them outside to experiment when we were working on the electromagnetism standards and they amazed me. Handed them mirrors, white paper, boxes, and let them go. Higher order thinking and creativity ensued, it was a sight to behold. Starting to clean my classroom for end of the year and realized I still have the same two pencil sharpeners I leave for them and markers, colored pencils and crayons they’ve been using since August are almost perfectly intact. We used all of these a lot, they just took very well care of them. Im so damn proud of the culture of respect we created🤜🤛🌈#thegreatergood #cultureofrespect #appreciation #lovewhatido #grateful #beherenow #mutualrespect #joyofmissingout #proudteacher #middleschool #rainbows #prisms #experimenting #therealthingsinlife #electromagnetic #allthecolors #weareallone #scienceteacher #missyoudad #imlistening #sunnierdaysahead #beyourownfriend #thankyouforreading

Good morning, 2 years ago life changed. For those that know me I have been managing a business for about a year now. The truth is Till Infinity Multimedia, LLC. Has been running for 2 years now. I remember when the name hit me about a month after i graduated college and I did thorough searches to make sure it wasnt taken. And i had a down period where i was out of the media game trying to get life in order. After much consideration and advice in 2016, I finally went through the process of getting my business license. It was easier than I thought lol. My friend @pzaycreates then sent me a logo out of the blue and I knew I was set to move. I stalled for a year before even releasing the logo though because I knew I had something great. You see throughout my time in school i had already started capturing moments snd realized how important it is. That became the basis of my brand, "Making Moments Last Forever" I might have to vlog this or something cause the story has been interesting but I post this to inform you all that everything i have been doing hasnt been just for fun, its been alot invested into this and its still growing. If you havent got the chance to, please feel free to go to the website listed in the picture. Follow my IG page @Tillinfinitymultimedia.  And continue to support me please. People used to ask me what did i want to do for a career and i used to always say "I want to own my own media company" it actually just clicked at the end of last year that I achieved my goal and am doing it...and on that note, anything is possible if you put your mind to it! #TillInfinityMultimedia #MomentsLastForever #ItWasWritten #BusinessOwner #Entrepreneur #IPayMyTaxes #Investments #FollowYourDreams #MyNameIsMyLegacy #MyNameIsMyBrand #Support #IRambledALittle #ThankYouForReading

Time to post some 🥘 pictures
Time to post some 🥘 pictures
#cantsleep #latenightwriting ... Disappointment hurts.
The drive to be perfect hurts.
Rejection hurts.
Unkind people hurt.
Lack of sleep hurts.
Stress hurts.
Anger hurts.
Physical pain is the most obvious hurt of all, but... ...worry about loved ones? That hurts most of all.

Not giving a fuck. After two years and one month of procrastination and of battling and sabotaging myself, I finally sat down and wrote a blog post yesterday. I felt like a possessed creature, propelled into writing and I recognized that this was a moment to seize and use. It took most of the afternoon---time that's like rare gold, especially for a mother with a kid at school and whole bunch of things to do. But, I stopped myself from using time as an excuse and just sat and let the words pour out. This is one of the most personal pieces I've ever posted publicly. That's another idea I often use to sabotage myself with: honest, raw, personal shit. That's how I write and I constantly tell myself that I can't publish my words and let others know my thoughts. But, not yesterday. I didn't let me and my ability to derail myself stop me from jumpstarting my blog. If you're interested, my blog's link is in my bio. It's: atilovesparis.wordpress.com. Thank you for your support of my writing.

I don't want to hear that saying from you of, "you deserve better." I know what that means. It means that I should stay away from you. Yet, I decide to stay with you. Thinking that you are better. But, what you are really saying is, "you are not the one for me." Meaning, that I'm not the one for you, because if I was, you wouldn't tell me, "you deserve better." ©Blanca L.

Hi I'm Jasmine and I have never been good at following directions. I do however love to bake. This means, I make things as I please. Heres the usual steps I take:

Research a couple Recipes 
Take note of wet and dry ingredients 
Number of eggs
Baking powder and soda 
Throw it in a bowl
Add the healthy versions of the ingredients (Coconut/almond flour, oats, flax meal, chia seed, coconut sugar, honey, maple syrup, pure cane sugar if I feel it nessecary, pure vanilla, cage free eggs ) 
Then I add more spices and seeds and nuts
(Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, poppy seed, chia, flax, walnut, matcha ) 
Then I mix roughly and follow the baking temp. And time as close as I see fit. 
People love my baked goods. 💗

PSA YOU DO NOT NEED TO FOLLOW ANY RECIPE TO A T. I DONT THINK. IF YOU DO I HAVE NOT FOUND THAT RECIPE YET.  #thankyouforreading #thisismyintroduction #makebakinghealthyagain

Hey guys,
I thought i would do meet the maker as I haven’t done one for a few months now.
I have so many new followers so I thought this might give you a chance to see who makes everything at Tiny Blocks.
I’m 20 years old, 21 in September whoop whoop 🎈
I am a full time student at open university studying sports therapy along side physiotherapy.
I also have a 1 year old (13 months) son called Harry, he was my inspiration to start Tinyblocks.
I know how most toys and decor can be expensive ESPECIALLY for babies/children this is why I am not putting any of my products up for a fortune as I know from being a mother with no full time job to support her things can get tight.
So I decided to make decor/sensory products at an affordable prices, as well to help make their nursery’s/rooms to look as good as you want them to. 
Also so help with sensory learning as development of their ickle brains is crucial at the early stages of this lives. 
I absolutely love what I do especially having a passion for art, I suffer quite badly with anxiety and depression so this for me is away to de stress and also to let myself express myself (if that makes any sense).
So that’s me in a nut shell, thank you all for all your support with helping my tiny business grow bigger.

@leiaswax
@garlandsgalore_
@butterbean_bizarre
@debenztreasures

Please tag anyone who you think would benefit from meet the maker 💗

On this path of self-healing, decolonization, & digging deeper into my #Philippine roots - history, culture, heritage, etc. This is a journey I wish I took earlier on in life but better late than never to take steps towards discovering. I often get emotional when amidst people who look like me, telling their stories that I resonate with. Coming to this country at 3yrs old, I only know the look on my face from an old photo, of my lola carrying me in her arms at the airport, as we part ways. I had the look of concern & the sadness of “goodbye” even as I didn’t understand at the time WHY we had to leave (“for a better life in America”). I can only imagine how we were all feeling 😭, & funny how I can actually re-live the moment finding myself teary-eyed, despite not remembering it happened, as the feeling is familiar in my heart. Of course I’ve adjusted to life in the U.S., but I’ve always had a sense of longing to truly ‘belong.’ Anyway, I can ramble on, but I’ll end soon, saying I’m not merely sharing for venting’s sake, but perhaps someone out there can relate, as well, and like me today @kapwakonnect, you may learn that you are not alone. The great Dr. Leny, @lenystrobel whom I had the honor of meeting today said to us, “find your tribe”, not limited to just your race, color skin, but of those people who can resonate. And I believe this is key, as through community/kapwa, we feel more visible, more heard & listened to, instead of a loss of identity & lonliness. Thank you to all who I’ve been blessed to CONNECT with on a deeper level, no offense to small talk lol but again, it is a type of healing for my soul, & I hope benefits you, too. Thanks for your time & presence. You know who you all are. 🙏🏽✨❤️💙💛💖 #kapwakonnect #kapwa #community #togetherness #kwentohan #storytelling #decolonization #filipinx 🇵🇭 #ugat #roots #isangbagsak #oneforall #youarenotalone #journey #healing #submitthestigma ✊🏽 #thankyouforreading #maramingsalamat

#perspective Your bad day is still better than someone's everyday #originalquote After a stressful day at work, I need a #shrink I mean drink. Haha jk I don't get stressed. How? I sing out loud in the car. I dance only when someone's watching. I don't do what I don't wanna do. I do what makes me happy. I try to make others happy. I do at least 1 random act of kindness everyday. I try to help whenever I can. I eat whatever the hell I want. Some people smoke, I drink smoothies. I don't sweat the small stuff. Everything to me is small stuff. I constantly learn and pick up new skills no matter how random or useless. I meet people: interesting and boring, nice and rude, all kinds of them. I don't easily believe people but I easily believe in people. I always look in the bright side. I don't feel the need to surround myself with positive people, I have infinite positive energy for the negative people; sometimes that's all they need so be that person for them instead of shunning them away just because someone told you to "surround yourself with positive and like-minded people." Try one, a few, or all of these things and see if it works 😁 #longasspost #thankyouforreading #stressfree #glasshalffull #positivevibes #dowhatmakesyouhappy #lifelonglearner #quotes

I do at least 1 random act of kindness everyday. I try to help whenever I can. I eat whatever the hell I want. Some people smoke, I drink smoothies. I don't sweat the small stuff. Everything to me is small stuff. I constantly learn and pick up new skills no matter how random or useless. I meet people: interesting and boring, nice and rude, all kinds of them. I don't easily believe people but I easily believe in people. I always look in the bright side. I don't feel the need to surround myself with positive people, I have infinite positive energy for the negative people; sometimes that's all they need so be that person for them instead of shunning them away just because someone told you to "surround yourself with positive and like-minded people." Try one, a few, or all of these things and see if it works 😁 #longasspost  #thankyouforreading  #stressfree  #glasshalffull  #positivevibes  #dowhatmakesyouhappy  #lifelonglearner  #quotes 
For all those who prefer read in English: 'I don't know what i expected
Maybe that you said something 
Maybe that you noticed something
Or maybe i expected nothing
I just don't know'

💔“Anyone who doesn’t have a great time in San Francisco is pretty much dead to me. You go there as a snarky New Yorker thinking it’s politically correct, it’s crunchy granola, it’s vegetarian, and it surprises you every time. It’s a two-fisted drinking town, a carnivorous meat-eating town, it’s dirty and nasty and wonderful.” #anthonybourdain .🖤
. 
I woke up in San Francisco this morning to the news about Anthony Bourdain. Oddly enough I had come across this quote yesterday and jotted it down to use in conjunction with one of my photos from this trip. When I hear of someone’s suicide I am always saddened but never surprised. People are incredibly adept at masking their pain and we never really know what anyone is going through no matter how incredible their life might look. It is heartbreaking thinking about someone losing their way in the darkness, thinking about them not being able to catch a glimpse of light through all the wonderful little cracks. 
I don’t have many celebrity crushes but he was one of them. I once stood next to him on line at a deli on the Upper East Side. I was too shy to say anything to him, to tell him how much I enjoyed his shows or just how cool I thought he was, but I told myself I would order whatever he ordered, no matter how weird or gross it might seem to me. He ordered 1/4 pound of roasted white meet turkey- the exact same thing I had come for. Slightly relieved not to have to eat duck liver that day, I couldn’t help but delight in the fact that as sophisticated and adventurous as his palette was and as urbane and venerable as he was, he also enjoyed the delicious simplicity of roasted turkey from a NY deli. In light of today’s news, I guess that wasn’t the only thing we shared. I hope his adventures continue with peace, wherever he has gone. 
Strangely enough this was my favorite photo from the trip. It evoked the feeling of journeying through the darkness to places unknown...

This one is for my girls.  These legs of mine that have carried me through the unimaginable.  The legs that help me stand tall and forge forward no matter my circumstances.  They don’t ask why they have to get up day in and day out.  They just do.  They may ache at times and rightfully so, but, they still manage to get on these boots, or heels, or flops, and do what is asked of them.

Today I am grateful for my legs and their ability.

This may seem like a silly post to some, but today, what can you show a little gratitude towards within your body?  We all too often wish this or that looked different instead of being content with what works so hard for us every day.  When I got this picture from my last photo sesh it made me smile.  I did not think I would ever use it but I remember slapping my thick thigh and being happy my photographer and friend Starla was able to capture it.

We spend so much time wanting to alter, change, or wish away aspects of our bodies.  Wouldn’t that time serve you better if spent embracing what was given to you as a gift?

You are the only one of you we get and you are perfect and whole just as you are.

Start saying that to yourself every day. “I am perfect and whole just as I am.” Show that body some love!  Show that body some grace.  It works hard every day.

Cheers to these legs!  And a good pair of cowboy boots, aka shitkickers, too!

XO

Letting go of trying (and failing) to maintain control, sets us free ✌🏼
Letting go of trying (and failing) to maintain control, sets us free ✌🏼
My heart dropped when I read the headline about Kate Spade. This is what I know as it relates to my absolute despair a few years back. I was no longer living from my heart. I wasn’t talking about my REAL feelings to people who REALLY cared about me. I was ranting and raving about HIS latest actions but I wasn’t allowing myself to sit with pain, sadness, disappointment, and the like. And until WE learn to sit with that stuff from our childhood, our first marriages, our second marriages, our failed friendships, the chronic and repeated over consumption of anything that makes us feel good or different, we won’t ever be able to feel true JOY. I’m more peaceful than I’ve ever been because I walked through that shit show. I’m happier than I’ve ever been because I let myself fall and heard myself say that I wasn’t sure I’d be ok. It was in the rising that I found out who I was, what I’m capable of, and who my people are. Now, I can truly get on with the business of LIVING. #thankyouforreading #youmatter #imatter #yourstorymatters #healing #beanaroundtheworldvictoria #payphone

Ha sido un año bastante difícil. No lo niego. Desde que me vine a vivir aquí he pasado por muchas situaciones que han hecho tambalear mi palacio interior. Muchas de ellas han llegado incluso a romper los viejos moldes, desmoronándolos o volviéndolos más fuertes. Todo en favor de construir y mejorar mi identidad social, cultural, emocional, etc.
Dentro de la estación de vida en la que estoy, he aprendido a armarme emocionalmente, algo que nunca he hecho anteriormente. He aprendido a soportar, a perdonar, a convivir con mi soledad, a valorar lo que alguna vez quise y que por descuido dejé morir. He aprendido a aprender, y aún estoy haciéndolo para poder ser quien he soñado ser: Un hombre feliz, a pesar de toda la mala vibra que me rodea, a pesar de los malos entendidos, a pesar de la ignorancia y la ignominia.
Siempre digo que tengo planes. Y es porque los quiero cumplir. Todo en beneficio de ser quien he anhelado ser. Y sí, este lugar no es lo que esperaba. Pero si es necesario que siga aprendiendo, pues vale la pena el quedarse.
Gracias por leer.

“... That if people could just remember the time when they used love instead of hate towards another, it would be so much more peaceful of an experience.  That sentence really could apply to everything in life.... Love is not always a forever.  Right that in your mind and find gratitude for it when you have it and when you don’t.  Let go with grace for those watching, especially the little ones.  And, always always keep enough of your love in your own love tank to pull you through when your heart is hurting.

Be love y’all!

the notion of promise.
.
has been coming.
.
to me in my meditation.
.
these days, mon cherie.
.
the promises we make.
.
to ourselves, to others.
.
pain always comes from.
.
broken promises.
. 
spoken & unspoken.
.
what constitutes a promise?
.
how do we know.
.
that it’s even been.
.
broken?
.
how do we know.
.
when it’s been
.
kept?.
.
does anyone notice?.
.
do we rewrite the story?
.
so that the outcome.
.
whatever it may be.
.
is.
.
palatable.
.
tell me a promise.
.
however serious or silly.
.
that you’ve made to yourself.
.
or
.
that someone has made.
.
to you.
.
and i promise.
.
as always.
.
to hear you.
.
to see you.
.
to feel you.
.
compassionate empathy abound.
.
from me.
.
to you, mon cherie.

Some very exciting news ✨

AFTER having a big weight on my shoulders after dropping out of school in year 11, having to put up with a lot of people looking down on me and treating me like I had no worth. I’ve started my fourth course in fitness and worked really hard obtaining these qualifications and finally I’m starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. ✖️outdoor sport and recreation
✖️certified fitness coach
✖️certified swimming instructor
✖️ studying personal trainer
I have been very fortunate to be able to study, I’ve met some really inspiration people on the way, which I will share in later news. 
But cutting to the point, I’ve started my new fitness page @fitnesswithpariss which will contain workout videos, technique correction, a variety of styles, inspiration, with a side of motivation for all age groups, sizes and abilities. Fact we are all different, but beautiful and unique in every way. 
Not only has it changed my life for the better I get to help the people around me, motive them to do and be a better version of themselves. 
I have worked my butt off and am really proud of myself and would love for you to give my new account a follow, share the love when possible. 
If your reading this far my message Is for you, no matter your circumstance in life you have the power to make a change for the better, no more excuses just get it down 🔥 #thankyouforreading #lovethisindustry #fitness #motivation #future #provedyouwrong #newbegining #loveyouguys #thankyouforallthesupport

Well I'm not sure when this happened... so happy to see I now have over 300 followers! Thank you to all you lovely people for sticking by me over the past couple of years. I've added a little picture of me if any of you lovely lot didn't know me. I'm not much of a selfie taker but this is a picture of my boyfriend and I at a recent @george_ezra gig in Birmingham. Anyway, maybe you'd also like to know my background and why I do this and who on earth is Carol?! Basically Carol is my auntie who was an amazing sewer. She was unfortunately diagnosed with the dreaded C word and towards the end of her life she went to stay at @loroshospice. They did the most wonderful job for her and kept her as happy as she could be during her final days. I was then given her sewing machine and began to teach myself how to sew. Since covering our house with items (and my families too!!) I began to sell. With every item sold I always donate to LOROS and since starting up in 2016 I have raised over £300. Last year I gave them £200 of that and they were incredibly grateful. I really want to get to the next hundred at least by the end of the year and I can only do that with your help. If you know anyone who would like bunting or cushions made, or maybe you need a present for someone please consider me. I don't do this for myself. #charity #sales #thankyoufollowers #pleasebuy #pleaseorder #thankyouforreading #inspiring #important #worthwhile #passion

I was cleaning out space on my phone and came across a video of my mother. I replayed it over and over hoping to feel some of her; cried like a baby and thought to myself, it’s not fair that she is gone. I know there is nothing I can do to change it but I have to call it what it feels like.  It’s not fair to all of you grieving either! Bless all of your broken hearts!  I read all of your comments. I read your stories. I see your pain.  Lifting you up. Wishing you the best this life has to offer oh, and that you kick next week’s ass! 👊#missingyoualottodayandeveryday #ilostsomeoneilove #likeifyoucanrelate #thankyouforreading
