While using affirmations can be a beautiful way to help change your thinking, they can also be overwhelming or feel fake if you don't know how to think that way or believe the statement.
So start where you are.
What's one thing you can do today to be a little kinder to yourself?
Maybe sit down and take 5 minutes for yourself, cuddle up with a book or movie, take a walk, buy yourself flowers, accept that compliment gracefully, thank your body for the awesome job it does at keeping you alive?
After all, practice makes perfect, so the more you use affirmations the easier they become. 💐

Grief and time are crazy things. When our dad passed away three years ago, I never thought I’d have the strength to sit through a concert he took me to without hysterical tears. Never. Tears would regularly flow without warning. For anyone who has grieved — and I’d presume that’s all of us to some extent — time doesn’t make pain go away but it does heal. While I’ve had some tough moments where grief struck me out of nowhere (talk about unexpectly seeing Father’s Day cards), I’ve found that time has given me an incredible gift of bringing back the good memories and replace some of the ugly and sad ones. For the longest time after my dad passed I could only remember his last days in the hospital. I could only remember hearing him take his last breaths. I could only think about what he wouldn’t experience and that we wouldn’t experience with him, including seeing his grandchild grow up. These thoughts are still there, BUT... not so all consuming. My bro and I, and our family, also have great, funny moments or can say “dad would have loved that” without ugly crying. I’ve spoken to many of you struggling with grief, some that’s excruciatingly new and others that still sits on your heart decades later. I don’t have magic words of wisdom but I have learned this: just as my counselor made me mourn the loss of my old body after my neurological diagnosis including my bladder that doesn’t work at all (nope not at all), you must, must take the time to grieve any loss — a person, your health, a relationship, anything. Without that, you will never get to a place of healing and happy reflections. So, here’s me with the best bro ever, @danrmil, who flew in to see a concert my dad took me to four years ago, and now I had this amazing guy as my date! We had the freaking best time and knew all the oldies songs — all of them! 🙌🏼 Swipe right for my dad and me at the concert.... I like to believe he was for sure looking down on us and smiling, likely making some sarcastic comment and then giving his little girl the biggest hug. If you’re grieving, please know you’re not alone. ❤️

👉🏻”The master has failed more times than the beginner has even tried” – Stephen McCranie
Don’t be afraid of failing or of your own strength, the world is ready for it!💥🌎In a world where most people make decisions based on fear, choose courage. I am constantly afraid but I do that which scares me anyway.⚡️👊🏼That is not to say that at times I don’t battle with self-doubt, emotional turmoil and depression. I absolutely do but I have learned to make peace with my emotions, they are my guide in life that prompt me to make necessary change. 😏
The challenge is to face them and not repress them. Life has a beautiful way of showing us both its pretty and ugly side.🌹🥀I welcome both the same, each side has molded me into who I am today.🙋🏽♀️I’ve chosen to face my emotions with strength.🦸🏽♀️I make my decisions based on what my heart ❤️dictates even if those decisions lead me to paths that scare me. 😳 I recognize the fear but I also acknowledge the enormous strength within me.⚡️😎 👉🏻”Everything you’ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear” – Jack Canfield ❓1️⃣ Has fear gotten in your way? 2️⃣ Do you feel your inner strength?

What influences the choices you make on a daily? ⚪
When I started my Youtube channel last year in August, At the time, I mostly consumed Entertainment videos. Probably 90% *shocker*
Come to think about it now, explains why my channel was about fun, random videos. It's because that's all I knew, enjoyed and my vision was inevitably going to match that.
📌There 3 kind of influences that would match up your behaviour, actions and decision - making process. .
This is what you feed your mind. (just like me, entertainment is all I knew) 📝
These are the people who you spend your time with (remember the proverb - birds of the same feather flock together?)
This is your surrounding. Does it motivate you to get up and grind? Is it full of junk food? It it full of goal getters?
That's why in today's YouTube Video (LINK IN BIO)... I explain why I decided to change up my content.. Call it Re-branding.
I realised, what influences me now is no longer entertainment it's more valuetainment. It's based on helping me to become a better me and while at it help you as well. .
So tell me fellow friends, entrepreneurs, ....
What influences you the most?

19.1 in the books ✅ and this year it’s not about the score. Workouts the past 2 months have been inconsistent, especially the last couple of weeks. But today was a great example of how special this community is. Many stayed after the Community WOD to cheer us on. And at the end of it all, I’m reminded of why I do fitness and that I’m blessed to get to do it with such awesome people. #IndividuallyOrdinaryCollectivelyRadical #StartWhereYouAre #Boone

Returning to my roots by working on my bed!
When I started sewing, I wasn't sure if it was going to 'stick'. I'd tried so many times before, but between lack of knowledge, lack of guidance, and poor quality machines, all those attempts were doomed to crash and burn.
But in January 2011, I spent $500 of my dwindling savings (I was unemployed at the time) on a Pfaff Hobby 1142. I also got a few bits and bobs, such that I dropped nearly $700 in one day, at my local sew & vac. It was a huge financial commitment and I wasn't trying to spend any more money on this hobby. But I needed to cut somewhere.
All I had was my bedroom and some drawing easels from my high school art class days, so I put the easels on my bed and did all my drafting and cutting on them. The only table I had was inherited from an old job, and my ironing board was a mini one from my college years. It worked.
Now I have a whole (albeit unheated ❄❄❄) room to sew in, but as long as I have a small, hard surface and a bed - I'm good. 😄 Not sure why I'm sharing this story, besides that I want anyone interested in sewing to know you CAN start where you are to get to where you want to be. 💜

Look at this beautiful rainbow chard I got from @imperfectproduce this week! How could anyone let this go to waste?!? Imperfect Produce buys “ugly” produce from farms that would otherwise get left behind and delivers it to your door every week. And you can customize your order based on what’s available. Not only do you prevent delicious fruits and veggies from going to waste, but you save a lot of💰. Now THAT is a perfect way to wellness! 💯👍🏼👊🏼 #reinventionwellness #startwhereyouare

The time between now and hitting the road (155 days!!) feels both impossibly long and incredibly short, depending on the moment you when you ask me.
There are so many unanswered questions as I traverse this journey:
🔸Am I airing too much of my dirty laundry, or should I be more vulnerable?
🔸Is this the path I should be pursuing, or should I chase another goal that takes me closer to (or further from) home?
🔸Are my skills up to par to deliver the vision I dreamt for this project at 22, or should I wait for another election cycle?
🔸Is this the dream I’m meant to pursue, or is there another life I can’t even imagine waiting for me?
🔸Will people actually care enough to help fund this, or is it sealing another multi-thousand layer of debt onto my credit?
Like I said - So. Many. Questions.
Which also says, this quote crossed my path at the exact right moment, and I couldn’t be more grateful. Instead of feeling like I need to have all the answers right now, I’m embracing that this is my season of becoming. That every rainy, rainy Saturday I spend putting in the work are leading me to where I need to be, and this uneasiness means I am on the right path. That every time I make a move, I need to trust it’ll help get me where I need to be.
I’m leaning in: there’s so much to learn from this growth. 🌱🌿🌻

Mid dance party shot because this girl just completed her 6 week program & you bet I danced it out!💃
The best part is I have my tribe who is also finishing today and I couldn’t be more proud of them. It takes hard freakin work to show up for yourself every day. There were many days I was far from perfect but it’s okay to celebrate your victories!
Celebrating today and every freakin day what this has done for my life. The confidence I have built. The mental and physical transformation. I’m damn proud. I’m so dang proud of my girls.
I’m ready to kick off another month with my babes. If you have been watching, this is your sign that you should jump on this train! So we can dance party it out for YOU TOO!!👯♀️💃🙌✨💕

Before heading into this pregnancy I was on a yoga high, working on my pinchas and handstands, challenging my core and doing as much vinyasa as possible. 🧘🏻♀️ While I STILL do lots of yoga, 😁 my practice has significantly changed. But that's what I love most about it: when you start to understand what you're actually doing, you find that yoga meets you wherever you are, at any stage, in any life circumstance. Where there is mind and breath, there can be yoga. Physically I've taken a break from the bigger inversions (except for maybe the occasional crow and headstand still 🤗) and I've slowed down my pace. (I'm very pitta, so this is a good challenge for me.) My workouts are more focused on expansion, flexibility, and longer holds in postures to make room for the breath. On the one hand I feel like I'm losing progress. There is part of me that sees others killin' it with their fitness goals and I worry about the time I'm losing in certain muscle groups or where my balance and upper body strength might be when I start bigger postures again in a few months. (There's that personal judgment and comparison and western competitive drive sneaking in.) But I almost laugh just typing that out, because I don't really think I'm losing progress! I am so at peace with the place my practice is right now and the new form it has taken because it's a baby-and-me practice that supports this new life. Pregnancy isn't a hindrance to it. This baby has enriched my physical, emotional, and spiritual life already in humongous ways. 🙌🏻 So I know it looks like I still do a lot of yoga (and I do! 😉) but these little squares only show one piece of the puzzle. Everything we do in life is so much more complex than just what we glimpse from the outside. That's the wonderful human thing about it. Meditative and peaceful, restorative and yin, vinyasa and hot, they all have their place. It's all yoga. 😊 It's all about the balance bringing us into harmony with the divine--finding it within and recognizing it in others. To be focused only on the goals is to deny the natural process of change that will unfold within us as we let it. We're always growing, but time is only human.

"The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." Lao Tzu.
I love this quote for many, many reasons.
Best of all, it reminds me that a single step towards a goal is important. One small thing checked off a to-do list is one step closer to something being created.
It takes courage to follow our dreams, especially in the face of opposition or others telling us not to do it.
What will you work on this week? Is it a new project? Is it something you've been steadily working on?
What single step will you take today to make your dreams a reality?
I'd love to hear from you in the comments below! .

@catroebuck and I were happy to catch Margaret and get to run together on this gorgeous day! The rain has finally stopped here in Texas, and the forecast for tomorrow looks pretty perfect: 40s and sun! ☀️🙌🏻

The bottom line is - at the end of the day, you have to live with you. When you’re searching for the right thing to do, and it’s complex, there comes a point when other people’s opinions can be important, but you need to decide what you can live with. When you’re clear on what your #values are, it’s much easier. But the journey to uncovering your values, your true core values, IS the heroes journey. And then living your life through the lens of those values, can be pretty tough at times. But the #peace inside of your heart and your soul is priceless. ✌🏼 .

Being productive and being busy are not usually one and the same.
You can be productive and not be busy, in the same way that you can be busy and not be productive.
The second scenario is common these days - most people are really busy, but not very productive, and that's a problem.
Being busy is often worn as a badge of honour.
It makes people feel important.
It makes others think he/she's important.
Being busy, in that sense, is more about ego than results.
But here's the irony - doing more just for the sake of it does not make for progress.
If progress, impact and results are what you are after, you have to change how you think about work.
The focus needs to shift from quantity to quality.
At the end of the day, working smart will always trump working hard.
It's not how many hours you spend working that counts, but how you spend those hours.
This is why the peak performers, the best, earn in minutes what most people earn in weeks or months, even years.
Think about how you can make the most of the time you spend working, rather than just focusing on working as hard as possible.
Here are some questions to get you started:
How can you double the impact with the same amount of work?
How can you do the same amount of work in half the time?
How can you improve your performance, and end results?
How can you do things just a bit better every day?
There's a big difference between being busy, and being productive.
One leads to results, while the other leads to stress.
One leads to progress, while the other changes very little, if anything, even many years down the line.
One leads to a life of impact, while the other, often (and usually), leads to a life of regrets.
Guess which one does which... Focus on quality over quantity.

So far this is my favorite spot to work out. (The 70” TV may have some to do with it!) The space is large, it’s well lit and I love the view! I’ve been hard at work on myself for two years now and the space hasn’t always been this way. Swipe right and you’ll see several of the spaces I’ve had to work out in including a basement full of toys and tools, spaces with boxes piled up, little holes in the chaos carved out that weren’t much bigger than my yoga mat! I wish I had videos or pics of the hotels, condos, balconies, back yards and bathrooms I’ve pushed play in! Lol not to mention having a baby underfoot!
Even though this space is perfect for me now it still takes a little effort to set it up and put it away. It’s all a process! .
My point?? Start WHEREVER you are!! In a mess? In a bedroom? In a bathroom? It’s all perfect! Don’t wait until you have the place or space... the space will make itself! You just show up. .
This is true for so many other areas of your life as well! So translate this little story into what you relate it to. What needs to START NOW that you keep waiting for? Conditions will never be perfect and things will always change... trust me! So just start, who knows... maybe in a couple of years (hopefully less! Lol), you may find you perfect space! .
I hope for a place I don’t have to rearrange one day. A creative and inspiring space I can feel free to express myself in... so that’s a goal! It’ll happen one day, but for now this will do ❤️🙏

💪HOW I STAY MOTIVATED💪
This is the longest I’ve ever stuck with a program before and it’s because of these ✨3 KEY ingredients✨
1️⃣ Find a program that YOU LOVE🥰 This is HUGE. You have to find whatever makes you wanna jump out of bed and lights your soul on fire 🔥 After all, if you hate your routine then no amount of shallow results is gonna keep you “on track”. Which brings me to my next point👆
2️⃣ Find your REAL reason WHY. We pretty much all start out wanting the visible “fixes” to our flaws. 💁♀️ And that works for a little while to motivate ourselves... But then we get so wrapped up in wanting a flat tummy or an insta booty and get so down on ourselves, we give up because we’ve learned to hate ourselves!! 💀 Why would you be motivated to better something you hate?? VANITY is not the reason you’ll keep going, so dig deep 🙏 what is it that you hope to gain from this experience that is NOT just about shallow looks?
3️⃣ Find a SQUAD that will support you no matter what, accept you for who you are, and cheer you on! I love the ladies in my fitclub, they are some of the most positive and motivational people I’ve ever met. So surround yourself with those peeps! I for one would LOVE to support you 💕
If any of this resonated with you or if you’d like to chat, shoot me a message and together we’ll get you fired up and crushing your goals 🔥

I had a wonderful conversation with @withbennguyen this morning about the importance of starting with why. It inspired me to dig deeper and ask myself why I’ve had resistance about applying for the internship at Big. I’ve made up so many excuses yet the real “why” broke my little heart:
I don’t believe that I am capable of being as incredible and inspiring as all of the teachers there that I admire and adore. I fear that I am not good enough to make a difference for people the way that every single teacher at Big has done for me. Why would I even try if I already know I can’t?
After @jamielim_ amazing heart-opening class, Ben and I were chatting about the handstand drills he does and, as he was showing me, I chuckled in my head and was like there’s literally no way I can do that. And then, as if he could sense my self-doubt, he said I was ready. I decided to believe him instead of the stupid voice in my head. I came home and tried a few things that I was certain I couldn’t do. I got messy and it was scary and imperfect and I did it anyway.
Sure, I may never be as good of a teacher as my idols. I may not inspire a single person. I might not make a difference in the world. I may not be ready to show up and shine. Those are all real possibilities. Yet, if I don’t ever believe that I am ready, if I don’t even *TRYYY* — I steal all that beautiful possibility from myself and the world. I now understand what it means to “disappear the limits” and I am ready to try.

One of the things our trainer has been pushing for this week for us is sustainability.
Mind. Body. Spirit.
And the one thing I can say without a doubt after 6 weeks and showing up 20 minutes a day is... I can and I will. Just watch me.
