Morning Maggie 🙏🏻 My sweet little empath. Awesome bedhead and a need for quiet wake up time...just like her mama. She may look just like her daddy, but she is my mini. It took me years to realize that is why I struggle so much being her mom. It's like mothering myself as a child and if I can love her so fiercely, then surely I can love myself too.
There will be many times in your day where you need to push yourself to go further, or push yourself to abstain. There will be many times in your day where you will need to be gentle with yourself and accept and adapt to that moment or situation. This is one of the secrets to energized, balanced living....where do you need to apply more effort and where do you need to surrender to what is? When you can tune into yourself and dance with this flow, you begin to tap into universal flow that is already a part of you. That is when you are most powerful. Flowing between the waves of effort and surrender. Find your flow.

No matter whether it is life, love, career, or spiritual areas of your life, if you can be thankful for where you are... then you can be thankful for the experiences that brought you to this point. Good or challenging... they grow us ALL. For the blissful state that I find myself in, I choose to give a high five to ALL the experiences that led, whispered, pushed, and pulled me here. The racing heart and sweaty palms were worth it. I am offering that if there are parts of your past that you hate... there is still wisdom there to be found. GO GET IT! #templewarrior#beautyforashes#PERSPECTIVEISEVERYTHING#lovewins#loveoverfear#bepresent
What can you do to support a friend who consistently has the same problem and never seems to actually do anything about it? Today on @TheEverygirl_ I’m sharing how you can handle one of the most common (if not frustrating) challenging friendship situations —> Link in bio.
Everything begins and ends with family~
I've been taking some time to reflect, which sometimes means a silent Instagram feed, but absolutely necessary for me! I've been amazed at what I can hear by just listening and leaning into the Lord and taking time to just be. It's been nice to be present and not let the rhythm of my household slip through the cracks. I was having this very conversation with Christy (the mom in the photo) to not let moments get away from you, and especially with our kids. It's up to us to be present and to be intentional.
Family is everything and this particular family has my heart as I've been documenting them since their first son was young, and now he's so grown! What an honor and I just love their joy and personality! I love sessions that refresh me and remind me of why I do what I do ❤️
I loved the cobblestone streets of gastown in Vancouver. We discovered the most amazing taco place 🌮 (oh yes, you know I have to find a good taco moment wherever I go) -- @tacofinovan. Take me back! The kabocha squash taco was 💋🥂
When I'm traveling, I've learned to enjoy making mindful choices in terms of eating. Part of that includes indulgences but not overeating just because I can. I love a good ice cream and a good pizza. But I also loooove my vegetables too. It feels good, energizing and nourishing in the body. My soul appreciates nourishment so I try to balance that with foods that provide a good source of energy. It's all about enabling your energy so you can enjoy life to its fullest. Sometimes that means choosing the veggies. Other times that means 🍦all the ice cream 🍦. Above all, mindful ✨habits✨ will keep you aligned with what your body truly needs.
We are given many gifts; the power of thoughts, the spice of creativity, the love of others. 🔮 What have you done with your gifts? Have you used them? Have you given them away? Do you not know of them yet? 🔮 Inhale, exhale. 🔮 Be aware, be present, be ready to listen. Be open to receive. 🔮 You yourself, you are a gift.
“nothing is either good or bad but thinking makes it so“ (shakespeare) - i think this is quite true. i've been feeling quite bad if i don't exercise enough or eat “too much“ or anything like this since years. and i see so many struggling with this on here. i think it's partly caused because we tend to compare ourselves all the time to other people and overthink everything. we forget how to listen to ourselves, to our body. instead we feel guilty because of what other people do. i think it's quite hard not to compare myself to other but it's a learning process. i gotta remind myself that other people have other goals, conditions and another environment. i'm myself and i'm responsible for what i do, what i create and it's so much better to listen to ourselves and our bodies to be able to grow. inspiration is always good but it's important to live your life and not others or for others. ❤
Getting ready for new #THANGS . Real Talk: I usually miss that "Happy New Year!" Fresh start stuff. It overwhelms me, I usually don't get things going until #March so now that I see this as pattern for many years, #Fall is my new beginning. I've had the #summer to prepare( which is not as crazy as coming off the holiday season),Fall is my #favorite time of year, and this new plan is more conducive to my #work schedule/calendar. Trying to seek new ways of cutting #stress as I depend on #God to prioritize my daily life. #newbeginnings#happynewyear#reducestress#ownmylife#bepresent
#Anahata also known as the #HeartChakra
Restore balance to this chakra by wearing rose quartz, green jade, or aventurine. Look for the beauty in your surroundings, in nature. Meditate. Perform an act of kindness.
All your feelings matter. All your desires matter. All your dreams matter. Dream! Dreams push you forward. When tou believe in your dreams, your faith motivates you to work towards your wishes. You DESERVE to have what you want to get. You deserve. That's the truth. •••
If they say you are naive by dreaming, they are wrong.
If they say you need to be more realistic, they are wrong.
If they say you need to change yourself, they are wrong.
You deserve to shine with your own light. You deserve to be light. You are special. You deserve. 😚😇❤
Is driving while distracted the problem or are we constantly walking, running, sitting, driving etc in a constant state of distraction? Always thinking of the next thing we need to get done, the next place we need to be, always running behind and never making the time... When we are at work we think of the time we are missing out with our family, yet when we are with our family we are thinking of all the things we need to get done. How often do you take the time to slow down and be present in what you are doing, right here and right now?
Come learn how to slow down on the mat with me tonight 5:30pm @yogaonthird . You can catch me there Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5:30pm. Yoga teaches us to live in the moment, to be more present, to breathe when life gets hard or things become difficult. It's amazing how what we learn about ourselves on the mat can help us in every day life.
A distraction-free practice where you can master the art of being present- that's what inspired this one-piece design. This bra, top, and pant is the most functional jumper you'll ever wear. @theyogzi available at noyayoga.com 👌

Mi #tbt de hoy : él es un granjero local acá en Alemania Bauer Rupp hace unos años compraba absolutamente todo de su pequeña tiendita del pueblo, llegó a consentirme muchísimo ya que decía que parecía niña chiquita comprando caramelos 😂🤣 siempre me regalaba flores de su propio jardín 🌻🌼 un día de verano me invitó a ser parte de su recolecta, no solo me gradué de conductora de tractores🤣 sino que aprendí muchísimo sobre las granjas locales - regionales tome más consciencia de porque es importante apoyarlos, porque es mejor el consumo de productos que se cosechan a poca distancia de nuestro hogar, por nutrición, medio ambiente y retribución del trabajo y la pasión que esas personas entregan, el señor Rupp iba él mismo a cosechar cada vegetal o fruta que vendía , era una tradición y para el su meditación diaria, algo que pude experimentar cuando voluntariamente lo ayude en varias cosechas 🌱 está experiencia formó parte de mis cambios de consciencia hacia el medio ambiente y acciones con mi alimentación y más profundamente a conectar conmigo atraves de la energía de la naturaleza 😄🌱.
Soy una comeflor emperdenida cuando pienso en momentos así , porque derrepente un día donde menos lo pensabas algo en tí se expande y te sientes agradecida de estar presente. 🌷Feliz día
Grande parte da nossa sensação de felicidade se dá pela nossa receptividade em percebermos as pequenas maravilhas que estão em nós e à nossa volta. É uma questão de treinarmos a percepção pra isso extraindo contentamento das simplicidades. Esteja receptivo, atento, presente, o tempo é todo seu, escolha como quer vivê-lo! #ficaadica
