Self-pity gets you nowhere. One must have the adventurous daring to accept oneself as a bundle of possibilities and undertake the most interesting game in the world making the most of one's best.
Never give up, the universe falls in love with a stubborn heart. ♾🐉💥🕳🐇♟🌝🌚🔥🎼 •

You have given me more than money or material things will ever be able to. I love you so much Lettie. The one and only girl that will always have my ❤️!!! Love Daddy
Content. Happy. Grateful. Blessed. Those are just a few words I would use to describe how I feel when looking at this picture. In the past I probably wouldn’t have even shared a picture like this. I would have picked it apart. My hair is crazy, my makeup isn’t done, etc... and Yes, my hair is a mess. I’m covered in spit up. My arm is numb and sweaty. I’m in need of a shower and a nap. I have to pee but don’t want to wake this adorable baby that has finally stopped crying. But I also couldn’t be any happier or want to be anywhere else. Sure, it’s been hard. Sure, I’ve gotten frustrated, overwhelmed, worried and tired. But there is nothing else better than feeling the love you share with your child. So yeah, maybe I don’t look as fresh and I haven’t had much rest these days, but I wouldn’t trade moments like these for anything. 💙
#iambubbins - swipe to save a life! ♥️ ♥️
NIKITA! This fun loving little bachelorette who is one of my cutest friends up for adoption at @ahsnewark! That’s the same shelter that took me in when I was found wandering the streets.
Nikita has been hanging out wondering why she hasn’t gotten a rose 🌹 since October ☹️. She is 2 years young, great in the 🚗 and on the lead... and well... she is very very fond of people 🤗🐶... all the volunteers @friendsofnewarkahs love her!
Let’s get NIKITA a loving family 👨👩👧👦. She’s been here too long... “still... look at that happy face, she deserves a home, let’s get her out of this place.”
In a world where we are all too busy to even stop & wave to our neighbours this is a beautiful reminder that giving unconditionally still exists 🙏🏼
It’s also a reminder of real issues, real problems, real hardship, real pain. I always hear “Ange you will never make money if you keep giving things away.” Sure some take it for granted but if giving makes your heart sing don’t allow others to ever criticise or judge you. You don’t need money to give. You only need to stop living in a greedy & tit-for-tat world.
Before and after of me and Steven. Gods sure not done with us yet and for that I am grateful. I have messed up royally this week and he still loves me, still calls me his own, and still chooses me. We are his children and he promises to finish the good work he started in us! NOTHING can separate us from his love. We love you Jesus, you are king and we want to honor you. Thank you for never giving up on us! ❤😁☀️🌻 #jesusisking#goodnews#savior#lightoftheworld#love#unconditionallove#thankful
Surround yourself with good things, but most of all good people who inspire you and lift you up. 💛💛💛 There is so much negativy and critisism out there and sometimes even in your close circles. Know your worth.
You are deeply loved and created in Gods image. There should be no acceptance of a bad spirit and hate around you.
Everybody makes mistakes sometimes but constant negativity around you is going to toxic and you should get out of there if possible.
What you need is unconditional love, acceptance and support.
Mara is available for adoption to a quality Guardian placement.
She is UTD on her shots, microchipped, DNA'd, vet certified, litter trained (80% house broken), crate trained and socialized with both small children and other dogs.
Guardian placements ensure that we maintain ethical standards while breeding. All of our breeding dogs live with guardian families to guarantee their quality of life and care while active in our program. We provide financial incentive and 100% support around the clock for our guardian families.
All of our dogs are DNA'd for 150-180 inherited diseases as well as allergy tested at our expense. We take care of all breeding costs and responsibilities and the guardian family has a transparent relationship with us while she is here having her pups.
Ethical breeding practices start with you. Without guardian families breeders are forced to host kennels and keep their dogs on site which reduces their overall quality of life and social development. Guardian families are imperative to our program and we rely on them to love and properly care for their family pet, which is also an important member of our program.
A mudra used to connect you to your hearts highest truth.
It invokes the fearless courage to keep your heart open & loving during difficult times in life when fear, hate, anger, resentment, betrayal, loss, abandonment, despair, & deep core wounding occurs.
Drawing in magnetic vital force energy towards the heart flame, nourishing, repairing, expanding, transforming & growing its potential.
It’s collects back lost fragments & recalibrates them into their highest frequency.
I used to practice this mudra almost every single night during some really tough transitions last year.
I would lay in bed silently decreeing, & praying, often crying, whilst holding this pose.
Id try to fall asleep this way...
The pose is pretty uncomfortable, especially laying on your side & doing it like I would.
But during those times, when I was suffering in many different ways, & couldn’t find anything to escape it- the pain & uncomfortability of this pose was far less, than the pain I felt everywhere else.
I would call upon Durga the warrior Goddess- “the flaming one”, the Maha Shakti of strength, courage, bravery, protection against dark forces & negativity, jealously, pain, suffering & prejudice... riding her lion which symbolizes unlimited power.
I would ask that she help me keep what was remaining of my heart open, & that one day I will feel the empty space return with the fullness of unconditional love, forgiveness, acceptance, desire, passion, purity- life, & learn to not be afraid to let people back into this void...
To help me not feel so broken.
To help me find the motivation & strength to learn from these lessons, to not sit in the victim mentally of circumstance, & to in time, transform this trauma into something powerful.
Lately I’ve been confronting some shadows from the last almost year of my coming back to the US that have reared their heads.. Which to me means there’s more work to do in this area as it still holds a charge.
Despite being told I was broken & incapable of love..I discovered this to be untrue.
And so I find myself back in this practice again.
Waiting for my train on my way #teachingyoga@camyoga. I think we were both surprised - the quality of the photo shows it!
It stared back at me for several seconds before taking off in leaps through the bushes. Perhaps if I hadn’t taken a photo it would have stared a bit longer or carried on with whatever it was doing. But it was #muntjacdeer , a frightful and a gentle animal.
In Hindu tradition, the system of the #Chakra (subtle energy centres), the heart chakra, Anahata Chakra contains the image of a deer or antelope underneath the Sanskrit letter. It represents our heart. Anahata is the centre of universal love, love without expectations, unconditional love which awakens intuition and intelligence; motherly love. The deer in Anāhata Chakra represents our heart - with its frightful nature reacting to a slightest perceived threat and its gentleness. Just like our heart. This Chakra develops self-love and self-respect.
Wearing Anahata Chakra and meditating on it is said to awaken our spiritual intelligence and our self-love.
Interestingly, I was wearing my @mahamala_in heart chakra bracelets at the time. The Chakra jewellery range is available through the link in my bio and the new range is coming soon.
