Today was a crazy exhausting day of problem solving and putting out fires.
However, right when I woke up and opened my door this morning, this was folded up on the floor just outside of my door. (I’m sure one of my sisters accidentally dropped it there, but it was calling my name!)
Over the Summer when I went to Missouri to visit my grandparents with my sisters, my grandpa wrote this down on a piece of paper for each one of us girls right before we left❤️ The universe knew I needed this today, and persisted I did! #itsasign#whentheuniversespeaks#listen#nocoincidences#mygrandpaisthebest#wordsofwisdom
You're struggling with obstacles that seem impossible to overcome & you could be feeling weak & defeated. Persevere baby because you've got this. Every mountain you're currently facing is a minor setback in the grand scheme of things and not the end of the world. During this period of apprehension or low confidence, draw your strength from as many resources as possible such as your loved ones, your religious/spititual faith, focus on the aspects of your life that ARE going well, seek your blessings & stop underestimating your ability to get through.
BLUE MOOD: HAPPY BIRTHDAY DINNER FOR ADDY!! No distance or time can break the bonds of my childhood friendships. Blue represents depth, trust, loyalty, sincerity, wisdom, confidence, stability, faith, heaven, and intelligence. In the meaning of colors, blue relates to one-to-one communication, especially communication using the voice - speaking the truth through verbal self-expression - it is the teacher, the public speaker.
The color blue is idealistic, enhancing self-expression and our ability to communicate our needs and wants. It inspires higher ideals.
Blue's wisdom comes from its higher level of intelligence, a spiritual perspective.
Blue is the color of the spirit, devotion and religious study. It enhances contemplation and prayer. On the other hand, blue's devotion is deeply rooted in being the helper, the rescuer, the friend in need. It's success is defined by the quality and quantity of its relationships. It is a giver, not a taker. 💙 I love my friends and if there is anything I can do to make them smile, inspire them, or help them, I hope they know I’m just one phone call or text away. #lifestylecuratorofeverythingvipb#socialadventureinfluencer#friends#whentheuniversespeaks
I’m so excited! In February 2018, I had the honor of exhibiting and receiving the Jan Hart Schuyers Creative Merit Award through The Art of Living Black #taolb . In February 2019, myself and two other beautiful women, who also received the award, will be the featured artists and present in a discussion panel.
I think the Universe is telling me it’s time to get my life! #whentheuniversespeaks#getyourlife#theartoflivingblack
Today, someone reminded me that life isn’t called life without contrast. Contrast allows us to ask and ask and desire for more. To just feel the moment, be present, enjoy what life has to offer but not to expect. So I asked, until when can one savour the moments? His reply: you’re thinking about the future already, you’re expecting, let go of the expectations and just visualize yourself being loved. And so It brings me back to my mantra, discipline+surrender= flow
Discipline yourself enough to add more value to your self worth and surrender to the moment, things will naturally just flow. Let it come. Let it go. Let it flow.

I few days ago I dreamt of being swept up into the air by a whirlwind of gold ginkgo leaves. We hovered in the sky and the leaves moved, fluttered and formed beautiful shapes and patterns for me to delight in. Below me was mass chaos being swallowed up in flames. I woke up out of breath, curious to unpackage the symbolism behind my vivid dream but as most dreams do, the memory faded away quickly like liquid gold slipping through my own hands..
Yesterday while walking my dog, I look down to realize I was walking through hundreds of fallen gold autumn ginkgo leaves. I was immediately sent back into my dream and reliving all the sensory details.
The Ginkgo tree is a phenomenon, an object of veneration, a sacred tree of the East, a symbol of unity of opposites, yin yang, by some seen as a symbol of changelessness, possessing miraculous power, bearer of hope and of the immeasurable past, a symbol of love. Because of all its properties it is associated with longevity. 🍂
Perhaps this is the most powerful sign yet that the universe is always on my side, guiding me through change and forever reminding me of the power inside me to both create and endure.
Are you paying attention to what’s going on around you? #symbolism#ginkgowisdom#dreamstate#whentheuniversespeaks#payattention#consciousness#awareness
11.11 ✨✨ For the last month or so I see these numbers occurring over and over and over throughout my day. The crazy thing is I've been wanting to learn and connect with myself on a spiritual level. I've read good things about these numbers. #1111#whentheuniversespeaks
The universe has a way of pointing you in the direction of what you truly want, all you have to do is be open to it... lose the fear, and follow the path of love... True Love has a habit of coming back, true love has the power to perform miracles, true love can do anything... Because in its purest form, love is the power of God/Spirit/Universe.
Keep swiping ➡️ for the rest of the story...
Hope you’re all readying & pumped for the new week ahead like I am...
In my case...
“Honestly, I don’t even play an active role in my life anymore...
Things just happen & I’m like “Oh, this is what we are doing? Ok.”
⚠️ Public Service Announcement ⚠️ YOU DESERVE TO BE MORE THAN JUST OK. ➡️ Okay ⁉️ Ya'll, THIS is the type of thinking... the kind of “just getting by” mindset, that had ME stuck and settling for mediocrity for way too long.
I deserve MORE.... YOU deserve more..... And if you are a mama like me, our kids deserve more of us. Period. ➡️ If an opportunity keeps knocking at your door to better yourself, do you talk yourself out of it because you’re "okay"?! 🤔
💖🙌 Please hear me now, WE ARE MADE TO BE GREAT, HEALTHY, HAPPY, AMAZING, EMPOWERED, INSPIRED, ABUNDANTLY BLESSED!!!! Far more than just OKAY! You are worthy of all that!!! YES, YOU! You deserve that opportunity, and you are the ONLY one that can change your "okay" in to a "GREAT"! You just have to SHOW UP and open the door. 👋
When you take a few minutes to really dial into your heart and notice the “little things” that are actually not so little... Such an odd day; the universe sent me so much love and kindness today and it took me until this moment, standing on the mountain watching the last moments of the sun setting to realize it.
And some of that love and kindness cAme in the form of a hand-written letter from a dear friend that made my heart grow three times its size. ;) A special thank you to you for being a part of my journey. ❤️🙏🏻🙌🏻 #lovelightandkindness#whentheuniversespeaks#openheart#openmind#friendship#kindness#love#mindfulness#selflessness#givelove
Sometimes standing up for yourself means to leave behind places, people and things that are very important to you. Making big decisions can be difficult and challenging, every action has a consequence. Last week was incredible challenging and tough as I decided to leave my oldest class, the gym that has been my second home for the past 2 years, my beloved students, one of the best friends the universe could give me @davelo77. I’m a strong believer that the Universe shakes you to put you in the right path to keep growing and moving forward. Not always is a gentle shake, sometimes it will shake you to the core, so get up, dust off and keep on going To all my ANYTIME FITNESS students I’ll carry you in my heart forever, i feel blessed to been able to share smiles, dances and so many memories with all of you for the past 5 years. I love you guys #timetomoveoninlife#thenextrightstep#standupforyourself#findyourvoice#imatter#sefllove#newbeginnings#keepongrowing#blessed#whentheuniversespeaks#italldependsonhowyouseait
