Dad used to call it " spinning your wheels and going nowhere". Are my interactions beneficial to my goals?
Are my goals realistic? Is my energy expounded to form my reality?
Is my money spent to better my community or that of someone else?
The #whys matter.
What is the intent of your engagement?
Okay, since the bottom of the 'a' from the title is literally peeking through, I'll just get the #shamelessplug 😝out of the way. My new(ish) #single "A Little" 🎶 is out on #SoundCloud right now, so go give it a listen for that #trippytrip 🍹. #linkinbio . .
If you #survived that long 😂and actually came for my #stories ✒️, well, read on 🤓👍 . . .
So, like I said before in the #giantsquare series 🔳, I discovered the #beat 🎼for the single in Feb this year. The #lyrics , 📑though? Those are from months before that. . . . In October of #2016 🗓️, I had the privilege of using the #bus 🚍services of #Delhi , due to...unforseen issues with the whip 😅. I was on my way back #home , reminiscing about the year gone by. This time in 2015, I had been uneasy about the #future , coming off of #antidepressants , and rejoining #collegelife after a considerable gap. . .
Now though, it was a #differentstory . I'd found #love , gotten back a semblance of stability. But but most of all?
I'd found #purpose . . .
As I sat in that bus seat🚌, I remember #thinking about how I hadn't really changed 👦in a major way👨 - it had all been the #littlethings . . .
And therein lies the basis of #alittle .
I had an interesting experience showing my art this weekend in a local Art's Trail. Granted my work isn't for everyone, I know that. But I had 2 men independently comment that they didn't understand what my work was for, what to do with it, that it didn't have a practical purpose. Interesting, I thought. Must everything have a purpose? Does everything have a purpose?! I've come to the conclusion that it does. Aside from the meditative and contemplative nature of my work, which seems purposeful enough to me, I think the work I do is beautiful, I don't say this to boast about my work, more to acknowledge something conveyed within it. And beauty, I think, has purpose. The men I spoke to felt art had to be practical, have a use. And while I can understand the need and appreciation of practicality i also felt a little saddened - that although they too acknowledged that the work was beautiful, that wasn't purposeful in and of itself. What if they look at sunsets the same way? And miss that innameable feeling that sunsets inspire through their beauty? For me beauty enriches my soul, colours my life and makes my heart sing, it inspires me. And that is purpose enough for me. What purpose does beauty serve in your life?
Faith is called upon, and that right often, to wait in patience before God, and is prepared for God’s seeming delays in answering prayer. Faith does not grow disheartened because prayer is not immediately honored; it takes God at His Word and lets Him take what time He chooses in fulfilling His purposes and in carrying on His work. There is bound to be much delay and long days of waiting for true faith, but faith accepts the conditions—knows there will be delays in answering prayer, and regards such delays as times of testing, in which it is privileged to show its mettle and the stern stuff of which it is made.
Meanwhile, as every day demands its bread, so every day demands its prayer. No amount of praying done today will suffice for tomorrow’s praying. On the other hand, no praying for tomorrow is of any great value to us today. Today’s manna is what we need; tomorrow God will see that our needs are supplied. This is the faith which God seeks to inspire. So leave tomorrow, with its cares, its needs, its troubles, in God’s hands. There is no storing of tomorrow’s grace or tomorrow’s praying; neither is there any laying up of today’s grace to meet tomorrow’s necessities. We cannot have tomorrow’s grace, we cannot eat tomorrow’s bread, and we cannot do tomorrow’s praying.
(EM Bounds) "That’s why I urge you to pray for absolutely everything, ranging from small to large. Include everything as you embrace this God-life, and you’ll get God’s everything. And when you assume the posture of prayer, remember that it’s not all asking. If you have anything against someone, forgive —only then will your heavenly Father be inclined to also wipe your slate clean of sins.””
I’m smiling because I can do 30 push-ups in a row...I remember when I could barely do 2! On Sunday I had to do 100 push-ups by the end of the night because I lost a couple games of UNO...It was easier than I thought so I have challenged myself to do 100 push-ups a day for a week at minimum. 30 push-ups into day 2! I love challenging myself! 💕💕💕 Have a great Tuesday!
Happy #transformationtuesday all! .
I am so grateful today for this journey! .
👉🏻The picture on the left was 2 years after finishing veterinary school and working 60+ hours a week. I was highly accomplished and good at my job (although never a super "high producer" but I did my job well and was recognized occasionally) .
Basically my attitude has always been to "put my head down and work" and I often did everything others asked of me (even if I wasn't taking care of MYSELF) and became resentful and burnt out. .
I felt stuck though because of my outrageously high veterinary student loan payments 😭😭
This continued into my relationships. I tried to be everything to everyone, the one that ALWAYS called, the one that always made plans, the one that bought little thoughtful gifts after traveling for as MANY people as I could afford (or in some cases, not afford but I wanted to be LIKED (LOVED even) soooo BADLY!! .
By 2010, I was exhausted, had gained 30lbs in just 2 years, was soooo lonely 😭 and couldn't understand why NO ONE CARED when I cared deeply for EVERYONE! .
👉🏻Fast forward to 2017.
👉🏻I found My soulmate workout and super trainer in 2011 @chalenejohnson who amazingly also did personal development and helped me with my confidence and time management and much much more! .
After yet another verbally abusive relationship (this time my marriage) I had to separate from my husband (temporarily!!) with my 3 month old newborn in 2015.
I started working on codependency in 2014 and to date have completed 3 12-step programs and lead a women's codependency group every Monday night to give back. .
God has me working on valuing myself, taking care of myself first and loving ME so that I can raise a confident, loving and kind MAN .
✨Truly no more important job✨
💟Today, I maintain a 55 pound weight loss (and keep it off) .
💟Spend time daily with God and my personal development and am just learning to love and accept MYSELF. .
And, I GET to mentor and coach other women to do the same! Coaching is such a blessing to my life, and I truly just want to share what I've learned with others. . 👉🏻Interested in working with me? Click the link in my Bio

Боялись ли вы в жизни? Страх настолько сковывает нас изнутри, делая либо неуверенными в собственном выборе, либо охватывает наш разум и сердце через леденящее беспокойство о том, что про нас не узнают, а результаты наших усилий припишет себе кто-то другой и мы станем ненужными. Тогда и стиль жизни становится неуверенным и любое начинание не имеет логического завершения из-за страха остаться в тени своей идеи.
Практически каждый знает о камере “Go Pro”, но не каждый знает Ника Вудмана, человека который ее и придумал такое удивительное изобретение, упростив сегодня процесс съемки и фотографирования миллионам людей!
Первый бизнес Ника разорился и чтобы оправиться от банкротства, Ник решает сделать нелогичный шаг, поехать в путешествие и заняться любимым делом своей жизни —серфингом! Любимое занятие с детства, помогло ему найти «своё дело»!
Оказывается, он видел сотни раз и говорил не один раз, что нет доступной камеры с характеристиками и возможностями, позволяющая делать качественные спортивные фотографии человеку, не прибегая к услугам фотографов!
Он решил рискнуть и создать доступную водонепроницаемую и ударопрочную камеру! Несколько лет упорных разработок и сегодня GoPro стала нормой жизни!
Нику нужно было выйти из привычного способа восприятия мира, чтобы увидеть нужду других людей и свою! Так трудности скидывают нас с пьедестала своих представлений, не чтобы нас уничтожить, но чтобы были способны увидеть масштаб возможностей!
Тебе нужно рискнуть через неудачу, а не из страха неудачи! Твоя воплощённая мечта~это решений проблем окружающих тебя людей, даже если твое имя не будет известно больше, чем название воплощенной идеи, потому что там будет часть твоей судьбы! #moscow#spb#newyork#usa#ukg#uka#almaty#krasnoyarsk#vliyanie#redding#bethel#visitsacramento#israel#telaviv#love#live#music#gopro#travel#blogger#milan#europe#believe#purpose#dreams
