If this isn't me I don't know what is. I LIVE for stress-cleaning. It's what I can control when I feel like I can't control anything else. When I get over stimulated by life and society. I'm working on giving myself a little more slack here and there. Because I'm only human and nothing is perfect and it's all part of the journey.....Yada Yada self help quotes and all that nonsense.———--–—--–——-----––-—--——–—--– #wakeup#growup#bekindtoyourself#andothers
Now that I've had enough time to recover from our 3,182 mile, 3-day, nonstop road trip to California.. Here is me and a beautiful, hundreds/thousand year old Redwood tree. I hugged the Crap out of her.

Life update: I have accepted a position with Core Consulting Group as a social media marketing strategist / brand manager and I couldn't be more excited about it. It's bittersweet to no longer be "shop mom" at @electric_chair_tattoo and I will deeply miss helping and teaching patients at @district_house (as well as everyone I worked with at both locations - y'all are family to me ♥️) BUT I have to put myself and my goals first and do what is best for my path. I'm excited to see what the future holds for me and what kinds of change I am able to create especially when it comes to the medical marijuana industry and the stigma! I'm about to be the change, guys! 😊🤗😊 #dontbelievemejustwatch
Thank you @firesidewake for letting @frayedknot_fiber and I be part of your album artwork! I can't wait to see this album released! It's been at the center of our friendship for years! Proud of you, Ron! ♥️
Some of the transformation photos of my gorgeous piece done by the incredible @reverendjoshuagerics
He incorporated a poppy framing a dragonfly at my request as a tribute to one of my best friends that I lost, Kyle. He's always showing up when I need his presence and it's a forever reminder of him. Been at this piece for about 2 and a half years and it's finally coming to the end.
Friendly reminder that we are all human. I take good care of my skin and still end up with breakouts like this regularly. Then I debate on whether or not I will cover it all up or let my skin breathe. When I cover it I feel better about myself, but suffer the consequences. The vicious cycle of skincare. I still don't have enough courage to go out without eyebrows because I don't feel like I'm...me without them. Eventually I'll get them done permanently but until then Anastasia dipbrow is my self esteem defense.
Anyway, I went off track but I want to end by explaining why I'm posting this. I'm posting this for anyone that follows me and thinks that I'm perfect or that I am flawless. I'm flawed. On the outside and internally as well. But it's part of my package. And I love what I bring to the table. Sometimes you have to embrace your weird stuff and flaws. Sometimes you have to be vulnerable and authentic. Sometimes that helps others find that strength and courage. The end. Love you. ❤️
