When I see a beautiful view, food, animal, moment, nature spot etc., first what comes to my mind is “Oh I have to make a beautiful, mind blowing picture and post it to instagram!” And last few days I am asking myself “Why? Why are we posting pictures of our lunch, our beautiful new clothes, our kids...? I tried to answer myself why the hell do I post pictures? To boast, to share, to make an online backup, to show how my life is perfect, to compete with others life, to inspire, just like that? Honestly I am not sure at all what is MY reason! And it scares me.. I have realized that this is not me, I am person who enjoy every fragrance, every beautiful view, every animal crossing my view, every gift gifted with love, I am grateful for every moment in my life...I should enjoy ever second of those moments but instead I have to make 100 pictures to choose the perfect one later...
Can I live without instagram? Few last days I haven’t been posting and I felt weird, I had impulsion to post a picture!! Why should I do what others do? I am poisoned by all trends and my question is: Were we less happy before instagram or facebook?
I guess this is my last picture until I find out what do I really want to do with this.... 👋💋
I am a woman of substance. Don’t judge me by my looks or my clothes. I am more than what meets the eye. Define me by the tough battles I fight each day. Define me by my courage to face them as I rise above no matter how difficult. My life is not glorious and I don’t have medals to flaunt but my biggest trophy is my heart. I value love, friendships, honesty and trust. I will survive despite all odds in my life because I am strong through and through. #lifeisajourney ❤️
Who knew I would be going from being this weirdo.... to this weirdo??.. #lifeisajourney

Transformation Tuesday for me is always a little tricky for a couple reasons:
🛑 weight loss is NOT my goal
🛑 most of my transformation happens through a mental shift, not physical
But I dug back and found a picture of me from summer of 2014 and looking at this picture I’m here to tell you there have been A LOT of transformations since this picture was taken:
🌟 check out that six pack I got showing up!!! 💪🏼
🌟 my happiness level is through the roof compared to where I was when the first picture was taken
🌟 my anxiety and depression have been (nearly) silenced
🌟 the life I built has brought me closer to family, new friends and a level of fitness I never thought I’d reach
NEVER be to scared to go for your goals.
NEVER compare your journey to the person next to you.
ALWAYS keep your chin up.
ALWAYS keep moving forward.
You got this, boss babe - don’t be afraid of what a little hard work can do for you 👏🏼💪🏼👯♀️

| AWAKENING THE DIVINE MASCULINE | Nick Broadhurst
Latest podcast release - see link in bio 🎧
You may associate Nick to his music, a founding member of Sneaky Sound System. He’s a singer, song writer, film producer, an entrepreneur, the loving husband to Melissa Ambrosini and a dedicated father.
I am a fan of Nicks music but until recently, I saw him in a very different light. I heard him open up about his journey to awakening his masculine, talking about sacred sexuality, relationships & intimacy. This prompted me to reach out to Nick, to have him on my show so YOU, the listeners could also hear how he created space in his life, so he could emerge into his true role in life.
You are going to LOVE this interview. Hearing Nicks journey to Awakening his sleepy masculine so he could finally rise up, meet himself & be ready & available for his partner in crime, his beautiful beloved Melissa. He talks about the practices, communication style & tools he uses to bring awareness into play so he can be a more conscious and balanced person – mind, body & soul.
We have a great conversation about polarity – how important to bring the yin & yang into life, especially with your partner. Being in that flow of masculine & feminine dance which each other. How it shows up in your life, especially when you are experiencing personal growth but recognising the individual work we do is as important to do with our partner. So many great tips and reminders that the challenging times in your relationships are the best gifts. This is gold!
He shares his perspective around the fears that men have when it comes to intimacy & relationships – you will love this!
He opens up about being allergic to learning — forcing himself to take a break, a back seat from learning. This includes his meditation practice, reading or listening to podcasts. Instead, he’s coming back by practicing embodiment. He’s focusing on his music again & coming back to just being here in this moment – arms & heart wide open! So much gratitude @iamnickbroadhurst for shining your light, love & music.
If you know me, you know that I’ve been moving every 4 months for the last year and a half or so.
As my time in Seattle comes to an end, I want to take time to reflect and thank everyone who has made my experience here a blast.
Here’s some highlights (as seen in the pics): — Reconnected with some bison fam (HU Comp Sci ‘15,’16,’17)
— Met many amazing people (Sweta of whom quickly transitioned from my coworker to a dear friend ❤️)
— Somewhere in there found out that a couple of my friends from MD had moved out (small world)
— Had a midlife crisis half way through and cut my hair off 😂 (Thankfully it turned out cute)
— Still somehow found some way to travel and celebrate one of my best friend’s birthday’s (Happy 24th again Faith, love you ❤️)
..and went to Afrotech and failed at taking pictures/videos with the other one..per usual ( love you too Chardai 😂)
— Got attached to yet another dog (thanks for letting me steal her Joe) and somewhere in there got drunk at a speakeasy with my bar buddy..then subsequently broke a turntable..but got it working again 😬
It wasn’t the easiest transition, especially since it was my 3rd move of the year (VA-Cali-Seattle) but it was definitely worth it.
Thanks to all my friends, old and new. I’m heading back to the East coast for now but I’ll definitely be back around..cause y’all know I can’t sit still.
Until then ❤️

Transformation Tuesday goes out to Kelsey! .
You can’t tell me you aren’t #inspired by this #transformation! Here is how she is feeling, it’s so awesome and I can relate with her so many ways!
Approved for use by coaches! “I’ve been an athlete and active my entire life and had never struggled with weight until grad school. But since starting grad school in 2016, I let the late night hours of studying and mindless eating get the best of me. In 18 months, I put on almost 30 pounds. I felt unmotivated and overwhelming fatigue every single day. Fast forward 7 months into my journey with the FASTer Way to Fat Loss - I’m feeling stronger, have more energy than ever, I’m sleeping like a baby, and I’m actually eating MORE than I was 7 months ago! I’ve been able to keep up with this program even throughout my crazy grad school hours and late nights of studying. I finally feel like I’m in control of what I eat, rather than trying to starve myself to lose a few pounds. This program is truly LIFE-CHANGING and not just another quick fix! If you’re looking for a sign to make a change in your life, this is it!” -Kelsey
I stopped all the makeup, I stopped all the self hate, I bare my pain days.
I love to show you my silence is full faced truth.
Strength is no fool. I'm not hiding, my crying was never quiet..I let those vibrations ring through that house of deceit.
I will never cower, my spine of truth is erect, it holds itself, it never needed..You!
You were there because you wanted, when you needed, not when you should have been..
You left me for the questioning savage eyes, stinking noses
Oh what days of dark empty disbelief! What nights of lit awareness!
I want too! to love again
For the sake of inner peace
For doey eyes, or dodo birds..
I'm not a player of games, of deceit.
My red is life! Its rich blood and the cloth of the newlywed.
Your red is pain and destructive desire!
it's your eyes closed shut on sunny days, a shrinking soul on a nightly blaze.
ThankGod I could swim in your hell and high water, had no idea why I had to learn to hold my breathe, Till you held my head down into your fire!
Have you seen truth in Hell? I have!
it's sooty and dark and a sharp edged liar!

Tu eres la única persona que puede decidir si mi verdad es verdad para ti o si es un sin sentido-continúe-. Los principios por los que yo estaría dispuesto a morir, los derechos más elevados que conozco, para ti son sugerencias, posibilidades. Tú eliges y vives las consecuencias. Cada sí, cada no, cada tal vez crean la escuela que tú consideras como tu experiencia personal. Richard Bach - Alas Para Vivir

MOTHERHOOD | I’ve been a little mia the last few weeks. There are times of the year when Vick travels with work for more than a week and all of a sudden that balance we’ve both been working so hard to maintain, lapses.
Holding the fort while he’s away playing single mum, being a domestic goddess, running a business and working in employment is one of thoughest things i’ve had to learn to cope with; keeping the plates spinning all by yourself takes it tolls and sheer exhaustion kicks in (i’m very fortunate this time round to have a beautiful extended aussie family who have selflessy brought me food, done emergency groceries and told me its going to be ok)
No one said it would be easy but sometimes you just have to priortise; being a mum and being present for my toddler is number one above anything. Sometimes social media just isn’t top of my list and sometimes I have to play catch up with my projects as I am just not in a design frame of mind.
It’s times like this that i’m ever more grateful to work with clients who love the work I do and are amazingly patient and understanding. You guys are amazing and without your continued support, I would not be the small business owner I am today!

Me habría gustado poder decirle: << Apóyate en tus miedos, desafíalos a hacer lo peor que puedan y, cuando lo intenten arráncalos de cuajo. Si no lo haces se multiplicarán, Dickie, se multiplicarán como los hongos, hasta rodearte, bloqueando la ruta hacia la vida que deseas. Cada recodo qué temes, es aire vacío, disfrazado de escarpado infierno>>. Richard Bach - Alas Para Vivir
I had a conversation with a friend the other day about how difficult it is to accept your own messiness. So here it is: 👇🏽
This year has been one of the hardest I’ve had to face. I let go of a life most thought was perfect and traded it in for one that’s completely uncertain.
At times it was hard to hold onto faith and at others it was clear that choosing my health, sanity and peace was the right choice to make.
I’m still learning how to own my story, but thankfully it’s now free from the despair and dysfunction.
As a famous quote once said, “The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance of the waves.” ✨
