We've all experienced pain. Every single one of us. Whether it's at work, in a relationship, or even in our bodies.
It's easy to see pain as a punishment. We develop a "What did I do to deserve this?" attitude. But does that attitude help anyone? No. It doesn't. ⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪
Instead, I challenge you to see pain as a call to change. Have a senseless argument with your boyfriend? Maybe it's time to work on your relationship or even move on.
Dread going into work every day? Maybe it's time to take a good hard look at other opportunities or go back to school.
Groan every time you get put of bed on the morning? Maybe it's time to set an earlier bedtime or break up with caffeine. ⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪⚪
Whatever pain you encounter, try to look at it as a call to change.
If you need help doing that, follow the link in my bio @angiegalentine and change your life forever!

If you have even CONSIDERED getting oils, now is the time! It’s been two years since YL discounted starter kits (the way most people get started), and I’m sure it will be a LONG time before they do this again!!! You can get all the oils you need to get started, an amazing diffuser, and your membership to YL for $119. I paid $160 when I got my kit and let me tell you, it was worth every penny! YL is offering 10% off and I’m giving $25 back to you personally. Don’t let the word membership scare you, you never have to make another purchase unless you want to! It just gives you 24% off anything when you choose to purchase any products in the future. Just like Sam’s/Costco, the membership allows you to shop at a discounted price! (Sale is good through May 25th or while supplies last)!

Well, after seven years at DATRON, yesterday was my last day. It's bittersweet for sure, because I still am a huge fan of the company, the people, and of course the kick ass milling technology.... but change of good, and it's time for a change.
In a few weeks I'll be staying my new role as Director of Sales for Government/DOD at a company called iMilling - providing dental 3D scanning, CAD, CAM and 4/5 axis milling solutions to government dental labs and clinics all around the USA. The second and third pics give you an idea of the type of milled parts I'll be working with now!
I'll still stay close to the folks at DATRON, they're like family at this point! I'll probably stop by from time to time for a game of foosball and maybe even to mill a part. And who knows, you may even see me on an upcoming DATRON webinar with @igsdann .... cause you can take the man out of DATRON, but you can't take DATRON out of the man 😉
Sometimes we end up on unexpected detours. The change can be hard. We may try to do a u-turn to get back to what we thought was the "right" route. If we make that u-turn we'll end up where a bridge is out. Mustangs on a Mission has taken quite the detour recently, but we are able to continue our mission of helping others through new programming to connect people with horses, allowing them to experience God's goodness and grace! The best part about a detour is it takes us to unexpected places. One of those places for us was Colorado where we got to stop for a night to see @hogan_equine and his work with @chasingwild_ ! This is an incredible film in the making and we can't wait to see it in 2019! Byron will be joining the Mustangs on a Mission crew in July in Cody, Wyoming!! Change is hard, but oh so worth it! #mustangsonamission#chasingwild#colorado#wyoming#texas#changeisgood#detour

Yesterday I thought I lost almost all of my original art paintings that I have been creating throughout this year. I was devastated and ugly cried for longer than I like to admit. I often hide my emotions behind my art and use it as an outlet of expression in ways sometimes I don't even understand. So losing my work made me feel lost and as if my outlet was taken and my emotions were also lost.
I often try to always show others a positive side especially on social media because of how draining I know the world can be. I never want to bring anyone, even myself down with what I post. I have always envied others who have the perfect uplifting caption for each picture they post and wish I had the same skill of telling a happy story with each work of art. It is something I am challenging myself to do so I can help others understand the purpose of why I chose to spend hours on a specific painting.
So I have decided to change the way I run my instagram. I want to continue to strengthen and improve my talents by painting everyday but not worry so much about posting until I have finished a painting so I can continue to show quality without stress or hurry. Thank you for sticking with my artistic journey and the changes I often make.
This piece is "Rapunzel" and I am so excited to show this new series of fairytale characters as little children 💕 I had to start with Rapunzel because she has always been my favorite!
I am working on more paintings like this but would love to hear what you would like to see 😊

What does it mean to be present? • It means that yes we make mistakes. We say things we wished had stayed in our heads. We react to people and situations when we’d hoped to stay calmer. But there is only so much of our time that we can beat ourselves up over what has already happened • The more time we spend living in the past, within our heads, the more time we waste when really we could have been creating a new present. When we learn to embrace change and let go of what has happened we open up a door to a life we’ve never lived full of wonderful opportunities and correlating energies • Choose to be present today. Not tomorrow or the day after. Ask yourself, what can I do to be here right now? Because what is this life if you aren’t? • Forgive yourself for the past because it does not define you. It is never too late to decide now is the time for a change. Start with your mindset and the patterns you hold onto there and everything else will follow • #bepresent#mindfulness#mentalhealth#changeisgood#seasonschange#forgiveness#learn#love#showupforyourself#mindfulnessmatters

I’ve always had a loud voice ever since I was little. In 2nd grade the microphone didn’t work during a play but everyone could still hear me. I am inspired by women like Meghan, Oprah, Ellen, and many other strong women who aim to lift. My goal is to use my voice for good. I educate. I guide. I inspire. I lift. I heal. I help. Social media gives me a platform to reach broadly to help those struggling to lose 50 pounds or find the daily motivation to get moving and choose wisely. Good nutrition and fitness are two of the most important components of living a healthy, long and vibrant life to the end. Think about how you want to feel and move at 80 and make choices today that will help you get there. What change can you make today that will take you in the direction of better health?

It is all an option. And if you feel like it isn’t right now, it just because you lack the knowledge to do things different.
I was lacking it too. But the great thing about knowledge is that we can share it with others. Which means that if you don’t have it right now, you can easily learn it.
And today, I am here to share my knowledge with you. By clicking the link in my bio you will learn how to stop building someone else his dream, and get the resources to build your own dreamlife!
I’m off to the beach with my family right now. I hope you guys are doing something fun as well! Just remember, everything is an option in life 🙌
It’s always exciting seeing your friends excel at their craft. What inspires me most is the success of those around me. It’s the friends and family that tell themselves “why not,” and take every opportunity to better their situation. We are stoked to bounce new ideas off one another and learn from each other’s mistakes. When we are all trying to figure out how this crazy world works, it’s always nice to have those individuals to navigate with. 🙏🏽
Why do we get stuck when it comes to our goals?
I just finished my morning run that I’ve been doing on Wednesday’s which is one of the rest days in the LIIFT4 Test Group that I am in.
I still workout because like I’ve shared before being a super busy parent like so many of you I want to be in the best physical and mental state possible each day and that comes through exercise.
Let’s talk about my question above. I just went LIVE about it as well on my Instagram stories.
In life I truly believe that when you aren’t getting to where you want to go you have to understand the root cause of not getting there.
For one we can’t be pushed to do something. We must be pulled there to something greater than ourselves.
Meaning when we want something for reasons that our bigger than ourselves (for our kids, for someone else, fulfilling our purpose) we will then pulled to achieve that goal even on the days that we don’t feel like it.
Why? Because our purpose or what’s pulling us is so powerful that we find a way to make it happen.
Second if you are not happy with where you are right now then it comes down to the standards you have set for yourself as acceptable up to this point.
If you want to change then you must expand your standards and in doing that you must change your daily rituals or habits each day.
These two things (being pulled to something greater than yourself and expanding your standards) can change your life and help you get unstuck.
Make it a point today to reflect where you are and to write down your answers to the two things I stated above.
