I can’t believe it. I actually made it outside to run!!! Haven’t done that in months. We kinda had a heat wave today- 44°! While I typically won’t go out under 50°, 44 felt warm since we’ve been in the negative temps for a few days. @pahlabfitness has really helped me to maintain all that I worked on in 2018, my first year of running. I remember my first day of #couchto5k and I couldn’t last a minute running. Today I almost ran 2 miles. Let’s face it, it was cold still and getting darker, so I stopped once I was near my house. I snapped this photo of the pond on the golf course in our community. The water has started thawing. Oh Spring, where for art thou?!?! #run#running#goals#journey#thisis41#fitmom#momofteens#fitness#exercise#workout#getfit
When we allow ourselves to be vulnerable enough to hear our heart, we can heal our hearts & lead with our hearts ♥️ When we lead our lives in this way, we become authors of our own lives & stories, we step out of our smallness & into our greatness.. bit by bit, bite by bite. 👣👣👣 Personally, I’ve governed a lot of my life being too afraid, to concerned about pride & guilt & shame to have lead from the heart in many cases, which I’m still learning to let go of and forgive myself for today. 🙈
Through this restricted calculated life, I’ve learnt how much holding back truth & ignoring my heart can hurt. I’ve learned that I lose authorship over my life this way, and that nothing great will ever come from that, but most importantly, that I would always be left wanting 💔
I daren’t say it’s easy to follow your heart, to do what you love, be with who you love or be who you love to be.. because it 1000% does not feel that way when you’re wrapped up in the programming of mainstream society, indoctrinated by ridiculous programs that this fear/guilt/shame ridden society weaves. It’s not easy, but then, neither is an unfulfilled life.
As we take steps towards our heart, it starts meeting us half way... I believe that, I’ve seen that. With my next steps, I’m trusting that my heart knows best and allowing myself to relinquish a false sense of control and be vulnerable... For our capacity to be great, to feel great, never exceeds our capacity for vulnerability. ✨

Recently, I was inspired by a dear friend who posted 30 days of proclamations & wanted to do a similar daily posting, but wanted to call it something. As women, too often, we apologize for who we are or who we want to be...but we each have amazing gifts, strengths, and a uniqueness that makes us who we are & makes others love us for who we are...so it's time to love ourselves for who we are <3
and thus, I decided on "unapologetically me" as my 30 day proclamation journey theme - I invite you to join me <3 “Unapologetically myself" day #1 : I AM INTELLIGENT * I chose to start with this one as it is something I used to hide, something I felt embarrassed over "being the smart kid," especially being the smart girl who was good at math * My memory is photographic - as a child & teenager, I could skip questions on a test & go back in my mind to find the answer in a text book * In my mind, I have images of my 2nd birthday party...my 2nd - that's 35 years ago by the way ;) I think in pictures & can recall my childhood memories like a video recorder is in my mind - ask my childhood best friend...she knows :) * When it comes to school, work, my business, I can pick things up in a matter of minutes - learning & being smart gives me self confidence...it's what I am extremely good at doing * As a child, I tested as a genius & was in enrichment classes throughout elementary school *Today, I am celebrating my intelligence instead of hiding it because it is a true gift that I need to be thankful for & know that it is a huge part of who I am & why I am successful <3
• Dizem que, antes de um rio entrar no mar, ele treme de medo. Olha para trás, para toda a jornada que percorreu, para os cumes, as montanhas, para o longo caminho sinuoso que trilhou através de florestas e povoados, e vê à sua frente um oceano tão vasto, que entrar nele, nada mais é do que desaparecer para sempre. Mas não há outra maneira. O rio não pode voltar. Ninguém pode voltar. O rio precisa arriscar-se e entrar no oceano. Somente quando ele fizer isso é que o medo desaparece, porque apenas então o rio saberá que não se trata de desaparecer no oceano, mas de tornar-se oceano. • #river#sakura#ocean#journey#reconectando

Sleep is so beyond important for your health. In fact, it’s just as equally important to your health as your eating habits and exercise are that you choose to feed your body.
Some people choose to sleep with the tv on or a fan circulating throughout the night. For years I chose to do both.
Since I was a teenager I’d always had a tv in my bedroom. Moving out and into my own place, I continued this placement without thought. It was habit to the point that I couldn’t sleep without it. The silence was practically deafening to me. For years, I would result to ending my evenings in bed with the tv playing whatever movie or tv of my choice. I can look back now and recognized how much it effected my sleep entirely. I would stay awake zombified until at last, I allowed myself to drift asleep, hours into the night. If ever my roommates had company, I’d find that my room became a source of entertainment for any of my friends who may have come over to hangout. I guess there was never a sense of growth from adolescence to adulthood in that transition.
It wasn’t for years, until I became a homeowner and had a house full of boxes filled with all my precious things, that placement really became an importance in my vision.
Since that day, there’s no tv in my bedroom. Which therefore also means that there is never any food in my bedroom. No messes. No spills. No reason for any company to gather there. I’ve never had such great sleep as I do now in making that simple choice.
I do have a beautiful diffuser next to my bed that I use religiously every night. Changing out various oils that offer me tremendous sleep support and carry me through my dreams each night. The diffuser doubles as a humidifier and the soft sound it makes only aids in allowing me to drift into sleep. For the last 2 years I no longer rely on the wasted energy and electricity of a tv or a fan to “help” me sleep. This story may sound silly to some, but I know so many people who, “can’t sleep without the tv on” because I used to be one of them. One simple choice of placement and a choice to try something that could actually benefit my being, have changed and impacted me so very much🙌🏽
