First cards for sale will be at @thehubportreath or direct from me next week. For the less glam side post it'll be packing up 100 cards in their individual wrap!
Still I love the notion of #justacard , I have many a card from my favourite artists collected over the years from museums and galleries far and wide. It's lovely to add to the selection with some of my own.
If you think these cards or prints should be somewhere you love let me know! X
on the sacrifices
of a million women before me
what can I do
to make this mountain taller
so the women after me
can see farther - legacy @rupikaur_ .
Paying homage. 🕊️ Reflecting on some of the pronouns I identify with as a woman.. daughter, soul sister, Earth mama, #Thyroid Whisperer, lover, lioness 🦁, sun goddess, queen.. 💗 what are some of the words you identify with?
Whatever your roles, I'm wishing you a happy #internationalwomensday and all the men who lift us up with love, I see you, I praise you too.

Recieving of ashes... I publicly proclaim my intent to die my worldly desires & live in God's image. Lent is the season of rebirth. Beginning again. I have always said in recovery we begin again every 24hrs, and that is how i choose to live. Also, for me, symbolism is huge & it helps me to refocus. Today i remember progress not perfection; to think big while living step by step hour by hour. There is much symbolism in the Bible & in AA. In the Old Testament ashes were used as a sign of repentance. Today i stop & spend time to meditate on my walk with God. How much time and energy am i spending on worldly things? How much action am i taking to line up with the words i testify, the message i speak? This walk is not an easy one & i see slowly things i must give up, people i must move on from... But i did not get sober to sit around & keep from growing! I also did not get sober to go out in the world and collect "stuff". I am here to fulfill His plan & purpose He has given me. I struggle a lot with letting go of anything really, I am one of those people who always thought i could change anything to make it better. But how narcissistic of me! Humility comes with letting go & letting God. Nothing is mine after all if it does not come from above. Today i reflect and i meditate on His Word. And with each day my relationship with my Father grows, & doing the right thing becomes my only choice. With time my visions from God will be brought into a worldly light, as yours will too. To be an addict and recover & do the self work means to become a leader & to lead by example. And we will change the world. That is our prophecy we will fulfill. #lovethyneighbor #onewaveatatime #ashwednesday #HisWord #24hrs #AA #recovery #seawithin #dothework #Godis #bestillandknow #womenofthewater #girlswhorip #imageofGod #ezekielhousedelray

💖I decided to leave the boat Yesterday. I was very excited to do the crossing but everything was all wrong and falling apart. The person I had trust in was no longer trustworthy and I did not feel safe!
🌈I decided to work with my self and not react to the Bullshit I was being put through due to someone else’s stress. It was a week too long to feel belittled, ignored and insulted numerous amounts of times by someone in a leadership role. I had put my shit aside to do it for the love of sailing! I was sea sick but was proud of being able to accomplish my work! We sailed for 5 days but the last two were having to head back because we had a leak in the engine room and our Genoa sail ripping! We punched back into the swell for two days with over head sets and the catamaran was stretching so hatches started to open! I loved every moment of it!
💧I got to see dolphins, a shark and My watch from 12-3am allowed me the opportunity to watch the moon rise from the sea with the Milky Way shining so bright a sight I always imagined to see! Although I did not do the crossing, I was out on the Tasman sea with land 20 hours away and that moment was bliss for me! I knew I had arrived to the lifestyle I always dreamed! .
☀️I have already learned so much about myself. What I’m willing to work with, how well I communicate and how I dont want to be treated! My only advice I can give to women now with the experience I have from getting handed opportunities from men is do it yourself! Get your qualifications and work fucking hard so at the end of the day your the one who got yourself into the position you dreamed and no one can hold shit against you! My heart said leave although my pride wanted to sail the sea but I know I will get the opportunity again cause my heart is with the ocean! .
🌔My course starts on March 11th meaning I can go full on into applying for work anywhere in the world on yachts!!! I am a very happy woman! Please reach out to me ladies if you have any questions about how to reach for your goals more independently please reach out!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!!! Next to God, family is everything. It is crazy how much the disease of addiction can completely change a family dynamic.I learned that to become fully "back to life" after leaving addiction behind means that your entire family has to change again. We dont even realize it but every indicidual has a specific role, the victim, the healer, and my favorite the one that lies to others about the family dynamic and we just pretend all the drama is not happening. NIMBY. I was a complete and total rageaholic and everyone was scared of me. This prolonged me from getting help because no one EVER dare tell me about myself! What selfish pride (fear) I exhibited. It is seriously crazy to think of the legnths i would go to fulfil making my family look good and pretending like nothing was going on... So grateful not to be back there! ♡♡♡♡MOM, if it wasn't for you trying so hard not to judge me, i never wohld have been able to finally let desperation outweigh pride and ask you for help. You came to all my family sessions even though I know they were tough on you, you go to Al-Anon, you come to my therapy. I know we have a ways to go but I love you so much and am so grateful for you and all of your craziness. You make me laugh, and that is such a blessing. Thanks for being there 100% through this tumultous journey. ♡♡♡♡♡♡♡ #onewaveatatime #godis #familydisease #addictionisadisease #stopthestigma #sobermovement #seawithinproject #girlswhorip #womenofthewater #24hrs #mom
There is something about the time of day between light and dark. Dusk and dawn have always given rise to my energy levels ever since I can remember. Maybe its a metaphore for balance... I havent posted at all this year. I despise when people say, well I'm busy (those are always the people that actually have the least to accomplish). 🌅I have been in a much deeper place. I have been studying the Bible and every sort of book on The Holy Gost, prayer, and living in God's Image, that I can get my hands on (order on amazon)! Last year i was thrown for many loops, death, disease and constantly having to move, and for the first time in sobriety negative energy dramatically took a toll on me.
I never knew how sensitive I actually am. I tend to be very aggressive and constantly seeking which meant i just always keep moving and let negative things go so easily all of my life... Annoyingly optomistic some described me as... I have been feeling full of questions, like why am I always doing things myself? Did that negative vortex push people away? I dont have any idea but I do know it is really hard to accomplish what I know I am meant to do alone. I am jot complaining, my friends i have are the real deal.
Unfortunately some of the women in my life I thought were trustworthy in AA had been using all along, and still are lying about it. Others were using me businesswise. I cant associate with liars or selfish people. That is one thing I promised myself when i got sober- total transparency, and a life led by helping others.
I have a vision and it is huge. It is not mine, but what God has shown me and prophetic word has told me.
I remain grateful and remind myself God prepares those He has set fourth to fulfil His vision. Preparing means taking the B.S. out of the way-people places & things. I am being sharpened and it has been painful.
AND ALWAYS REMEMBER... YOU CAN NOT ADD A SINGLE HOUR TO YOUR LIFE BY WORRYING (Matthew 6:27)
My father baptized me in this ocean when I was three days old, although we were never a very churchie family we did get baptized in a church as babies.... he always joked we belonged to mother ocean before we belonged to any god.
My family would go to the the beach on weekends and go surfing almost every Sunday, I still remember being tiny and sitting on the front of my dads 11’ Reny Yater surfboard as he paddled and caught waves. The first waves I ever rode were sitting at the feet of my father. My dads a goofball, he loves tall tales and speaking in silly accents, he’s a bit of a romantic and a dreamer. He loved to tell us fairytales when we were children and he stressed the importance of connection to the earth and each other. The ocean is his church. “The ocean heals” he would say, not just physical injuries but spiritual and mental ones too. He took me out of school one day when I was about ten , he just snatched me up from class and we went to this beach! I was having a tough day today and he called me as I was on my way to this same beach...our connection game is strong! .
He said to me - When in doubt, dive in, let the water cleanse you, let the salt purify you, let the cold caress you and let whatever it is that ails you evaporate off your skin as you dry in the sunny sand. Taste the salt on your lips and let it remind you that we are nothing but water and space dust. .
'Often the outdoors don’t feel like the place for women. It’s considered a masculine space. So much of what I want to do in my life is a reclamation of that space.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s not a masculine space. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's a space for everyone. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For every body, whoever you are, however you identify.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I want to try and remove that barrier for myself, and for others. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Being outside is so special. It can’t be a masculine dominated place, or a masculine dominated industry. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That’s not realistic. And that type of thinking only propagates the heteronormative patriarchy - which SUCKS.'⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Kai Harvey, owner of Misty Isles Kayaking, blew me away during our interview with this stand-up-and-applaud answer.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So listen up ya'll...That wild space is YOURS. Explore it, love it, protect it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

How about a bottle of beer?
This is all super overwhelming, there is so much to do, but if I break it down one thing at a time I think I can manage it better. I am trying at least. You wouldn't drink your beer in a plastic bottle, right? So why drink water in one. If you are on the go and desperate for a bottle of water, grab the glass options hidden among the sea of plastic bottles, or better yet keep a reusable bottle in your bag or car for convenience. No stress, just a thought. Here, have a beer now, its Friday! .

I was slightly taken aback when I saw it, my first instinct was to pick it up and throw it away. Something stopped me, a memory… As I stood there holding my Paddle, Iakos and Ama, shivering cause its like 30 degrees in LA, I stared at the needle in the sand and imagined a kid stepping on it, looked and saw Boot Camp’s unsuspecting hopefuls were about to run by so instead of handling it with my bare, shaky hands, I grabbed a cone from boot camp to mark it and ran over to the Beach Maintenance Dude. He came to the rescue. I’m glad boot camp didn’t think I was steeling the cone. As the Maintenance Dude (Beach Hero) was picking up the needle I recalled a story told to me by another Beach Maintenance Dude (Beach Hero) a few years back. I was doing some work with them, cleaning the beaches, when he told me a story about the one time with in a million times he had taken the garbage bag out of the beach trash can and unlike all the other times, he felt a sharp prick in his finger, some one had thrown the needle directly in the trash with no container… so this Beach Maintenance Dude (Beach Hero) had to face the fact that he may have just been infected with something while doing his job of cleaning up after all of us. I think the take away here is if you find a needle on the beach and I hope you don’t, but if you do, Mark it, warn those around, maybe have a look out and then go get the professionals so they can dispose of it safely. If no one is around some suggest putting it in a hard container, plastic bottle... that's where they come in handy again lol. Hopefully this will prevent more good deeds from being punished. .

@emilyweerlove and Andrew, thank you for such a wonderful day rediscovering my inner child simply playing outside in a storm with my friends!
We started off thinking we could go snowboarding, but the eye of the storm hit and all the mountains shut down, the highways closed, and there was no where to go. So we moved to plan B to take Emily’s snowmobile out for a rip. When we couldn’t get the snowmobile to work, we moved to plan C and got on our split boards to simply go on a little tour around the river. Little did we know we were about to become little kids again, who got to stay home from school on a snow day, laughing and jumping outside, playing on train tracks (not intentionally) when we are not supposed to, and simply having the best day ever when nothing was going as planned!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, storms always look worse from the comfort of your window. Throw your boots on, grab your hat and mittens, and find a friend to go play in the elements with you! I promise you it will always make your day better!
Emily you’re the best! Thanks for turning this potential cabin fever day into a play day!
✨ You have to feel it, in order to heal it.. When we think life has hit you hard enough in the last couple of weeks, months or even years, we often find ourselves in the darkest of places, being put through yet another of life’s assignment. This one even harder than the last one, the one you thought you won’t be able to overcome.
Life can be full of surprises, constantly testing and challenging us to make us stronger. The universe has a plan for us, although at times this plan may seem a little too radical or almost cruel, it is for our best. I know right!? .
I have found myself in such a situation while enjoying a well-deserved solo surf trip to Hawaii. I needed to do something for myself as I spent so much of my time dedicated to someone else’s life and dreams, that I forgot to pursue my own. Now here I am, while there are two people living in a home I temporarily chose to leave. Two people - my partner and a person who isn’t me… .
In a matter of a week I didn’t only lose a valued and important person in my life, I also lost home, I lost a job, and years of work. In one night I lost everything I had worked for through tears, sweat and sleepless nights the past years. And I can tell you, that one is a hard one to digest
I am still in a process of tackling this on, and here is what I learned:
~ let go of expectations
~ accept the situation
~ own your power to move past this
~ surrender to your feelings, allow them to bubble up (no judgment) ~ experience these feelings (no resistance)
~ eventually allow your feelings to pass
If you are going through such an experience let me just remind you (because deep down you know & you hear me) that you ARE beautiful, you ARE sweet, you ARE smart, you ARE creative, you ARE kind and you ARE worthy, you ARE loving, lovable & loved. Because you know you ARE your amazing independent, strong, fearless, unstoppable, wild and free self. Now own that! .

Thank you @patasudaka_hawaiisurfcamp for making my days brighter and for this lovely photo. Thank you @wearemona for this gorgeous bikni that make me feel special again.
"What is the basic nutrition for the soul?... For some women air, night, sunlight, and trees are necessities. For others, words, paper, and books are the only things that satiate. For others, color, form, shadow, and clay are the absolutes.
Some women must leap, bow, and run, for their souls crave dance. Yet others crave only a tree-leaning peace.…. What do you crave for? Women Who Run with The Wolves
“Qual é a nutrição básica para a alma? Bom, na verdade difere para cada um. Mas aqui seguem algumas combinações: para algumas mulheres ar, noite, luz do sol e árvores são necessidades básicas. Para algumas, palavras, um caderno e um livro são o suficiente. Para outras cor, formas, sombras e argila são os essenciais.
Algumas mulheres precisam se arriscar mais, correr e mudar para se sentirem vivas. Enquanto outras, sombra e água fresca é o suficiente”.(Mulheres que Correm com os Lobos) E você, sabe o que alimenta a sua alma?? #womenwhorunwiththewolves#mindfulliving
I am a #WomanOfTheWater 🧜🏼♀️💙 Growing up on the south Texas coast to a family of watermen & women, surf lifesavers, open water marathon swimmers, scuba divers... salt water has been a part of me since quite literally day1. I've since lived around the world as a marine scientist & dive instructor and have called the pristine coastline of Northland, New Zealand my home for the past 4 years. If not under the surface of the majestic Poor Knights Islands marine reserve working as a dive instructor I am often out with the orca (Orca Research Trust) with the ultimate #womanofthewater Dr. Ingrid Visser. You may also find me in the field, office, or lab working on groundbreaking leopard seal research with an incredible team of researchers, or perhaps working to strengthen legislation regarding ending all cetacean captivity or fighting courts internationally on the matter.. Finally, perhaps you'll find me on the beach, day after day, night after night with Whale Rescue with stranded whales needing to get back out to sea... the most important and also challenging of the many hats us #womenoftthewater wear down here in Aotearoa. The memories of swimming the matriarch of a pod out to sea hoping and praying with every ounce of your soul that these whales will continue offshore is both an emotional and physical endeavor... other times laying by the side of a humpback on her last few breathes on the shoreline after all efforts had failed... passion drives all that I do.
My love for the ocean is the greatest love that has ever, or ever will, exist in my life. Since a young child I've struggled with mental Illness of varying degrees and time after time the ocean has always been my only solace. She has given me all of the life that I am and I've dedicated myself to her in return. Witnessing her demise, especially through plastics&waste, shatters my heart, and to that end every beach visit seems to end in a proper beach cleanup. I talk to children in schools about ocean conservation as well, and i work to minimize my own footprint on our beautiful blue planet by eliminating all plastics + chemicals from my life and choosing a vegan plant based diet🌊I am a #womanofthewater 🤙
