I’m feeling very reflective at the moment. And to be honest, I love looking back and seeing how far I have come.
I remember being 16, dropping out of a college course I hated and wondering what the hell I was going to do with my life. I picked myself up, picked a new course and went back in September. And failed. I remember again wondering what on Earth I could do now, but again I picked myself up and tried yet another course. And this time I succeeded. I got higher than my predicted grades which were already pretty good and off I went to study my undergraduate course at university. Somewhere I never thought I’d get to! But I still remember thinking I was going to be “old”, at 20 yet I was still not the oldest in my class.
And now having just graduated, I laugh at how much I made a big deal out of that drop out and that fail. Because despite it all, I did it. Despite thinking it was too late and I was too old, despite all those push backs. So it really is never too late.
If something doesn’t work first time round, try a second time. And a third. Keep going until you get to where you want to be. If I can do it, anyone can.💪🏽
The Van Gogh exhibit at @atelierdeslumieres in Paris was a truly unique way to experience art. The immersive projections covered every wall, the floor, and were paired with musical cuts that added to the emotional journey through his lifetime work. Hats off to a hugely talented production and creation team! Anyone in the area this fall should check out the #Klimt exhibit starting Aug 1. #atelierdeslumières #exposition#art#culture#paris#vangogh#inspiring

AGATE - Balance and Protection.
Agate brings emotional, physical and intellectual balance. It helps centre and stabilize physical energy. A stone that brings great strength and has soothing and calming properties. Known as the stone of protection, it assists in protection from nightmares, stress and fatigue.
I would’ve told you I was fine... being a RN, a mom, volunteering at my church, studying to be a Forensic Nurse... I was busy and all was “fine”!
Little did I know my little life that was “fine” would transform into FABULOUS.
Yes, I joined a business that financially set us free but we all know a lot of people that have financial freedom but are still living a life deemed “fine”.
What made it FABULOUS was the connection. Connection to a community that cheers you on, helps you move forward, spurs you on to success, laughs with you and lives life to the fullest with you.
I’ve been enjoying this life for a few years now and I often forget there are so many people who would love to have a community of FABULOUS people like this to do life with... truth is, you can... join me and I’ll introduce you to some of the most amazing and inspirational people you’ll ever know.
Maybe it’s time to stop being just “fine”.
Playing a game of conservation in the gym now to steadily gain strength, and not to ego lift. .

No puedo con todo y está bien
"Me abruma. Todo esto que tengo alrededor me abruma", recuerdo que lo pensé. Era 30 de Diciembre. Sábado.
No tenía planes para Año Nuevo y estaba con una depresión tremenda. Desde hacía unos días no me podía levantar de mi cama.
Sin embargo, algo cambió ese día. A mi me afecta mucho el sol al despertar y esa mañana de verano había un sol ligero.
Simplemente sentí que era una nueva oportunidad.
Apenas me levante, me quite la piyama y empece la limpieza. Conseguí bolsas de reciclaje y donación.
Ropa que no usaba hace más de 1 año, adentro. Libros leídos y que se acumulaban, adios. Papeles y basura en general, adiós.
Al terminar - casi 3 horas después- me sentía más liviano. Menos problemático. Menos abrumado.
Había generado espacio para las cosas que realmente importaban.

Juuuust going to leave this photo of a crane here as a friendly reminder of what forgiveness looks like and how it can play an important role for those of us battling illnesses AND emotional wounds to help us remove roadblocks so that we can keep growing in spite of some very real pain. #UnderConstruction
