Do you agree?
I feel like there is so much discord in the world these days, we all need a group hug, to accept each other as the diverse, different creatures we are and to love each other unconditionally!
I know, sometimes it seems like a pipe dream… but I don’t see why it is so hard!
Some people want perfectly coiffed hair (and there’s nothing wrong with that – and some days that’s me!), and some people would rather toss it up in a messy bun and instead use that time to get some fresh air by the water, while the sun wakes up. ☀️
Today the messy bun was me! I soaked it all in and was talking to the baby, telling him or her I can’t wait to take them to the beach, to dip their feet in the ocean for the first time and feel the sand between their toes… so many exciting things to look forward to! 😍
(And no, I don’t feel weird talking to an unborn baby!)
Mamas, did you talk to your baby while they were in utero?
Show up, do your best…
and then • f o r g e t . t h e . r e s t •
The world might try to make you feel like you don’t measure up – don’t listen. You DO. Always.
I am working on this myself… as an emotional empath, I tend to either be really up, or really down, there is no real in between for me.
And when you toss in things like the Mercury being in retrograde, and the intensely negative world we live in, shit gets real, fast.
I am a work in progress, but I am slowly (very slowly…) learning that attitude really does determine your altitude, and even though things may suck at the moment, you can still choose to remain positive about things. Because, spoiler alert – it WILL pass!
I’m gonna throw today’s to my girl Coco!
JUST. BE. YOU.
…to believe in Y O U R S E L F!
I know all too well how easy it is to believe in others, and dish out motivation and inspiration, and I am told I am really good at it. Know what I am not good at? Believing in MYSELF.
While I am getting better with it, it is quite a battle!
But it is a battle I refuse to give up on, because I think of how it will one day feel to have 100% faith in myself, to fully believe in myself, and to not be my own worst critic. I think of how awesome it will feel to be able to say “eh, I made a mistake, but it’s okay; I’m human” and ACTUALLY believe it, not just pay lip service.
Doesn’t that sound like a great concept to you? To actually believe in yourself and all you are capable of? Because, you may not know this… but your only limitation is yourself! You DO deserve all this magic!
Okay I don’t mean to sound demanding and dramatic, but I AM SO HAPPY its a long weekend! I need this… things have been crazy lately, we have been burning the wicks at both ends, and there is just not enough time to get it all done sometimes!
I’m excited for this long weekend because not only will we be celebrating one of MY favorite holidays – 4th of July – we will be seeing tons of friends and family, and enjoying spending quality time together!
Yes, its true, I wish I was at the Grateful Dead 50th Anniversary shows in Chicago with a huge handful of my favorite people…. and I tried to make it happen, I really and truly did! Post office messed up and so my request for tickets never went through, and while I can afford to pay what secondary markets are asking for, but it’s a bit rich for me to justify, since we are saving for a house and a honeymoon, and our future. It’s a tough pill to swallow but we will enjoy the live stream, which is better than nothing!
What are you up to this holiday weekend? Anything fun?
Feeling pretty good… getting back on track health and fitness-wise, my nutrition is stabilizing, I am getting things accomplished with wedding stuff, continuing to learn ASL, and we’re truckin’ along…. happy to have the weekend (though its a busy one) here, and I am looking forward to continuing to check things off of my many to-do lists.
How are you? Are you doing anything fun this weekend?
Yay! Happy Friday, guys! It’s looking like it will be a great one leading into a great weekend, and I’m excited (and thankful), cause I really need it!
Whats on your agenda today? What will you do to make today fabulous?
