Mindfulness is a bit of a buzz word at the moment. Put simply, it asks us to be completely present when we are undertaking tasks. It’s easier said than done, but really helps your whole state of mind, and becomes much easier with practice! . . #gyst #getyourshittogether #mindfulness #bemindful #slowdown #bepresent
Good Morning Children of Love and Light. Thank you, Saint Nicholas for your message 💕 The important things in life aren’t things 💕🐲 WAKE. PRAY. SLAY. ✌️🎶 “We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.” —Thornton Wilder

(To the mamas & papas) This is my 100th post....and so to mark that somewhat ridiculous 'milestone that's not really a milestone', I want to share a special piece of my heart with you 💛 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm not a big one for putting lots of photos of my little monkey online (that's a story for another time). But every single day she inspires me & teaches me lessons about beautiful living that I had long forgotten 🌸🌱 She also drives me crazy....but that's to be expected😆 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I spent a lot of time in the first 18 months of motherhood feeling guilty about things I didn't do well, things I could have done better, and things I felt downright crappy about 😳 Hello mama guilt! And then I came across these 2 quotes that literally became my daily mantras: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⭐There is no such thing as a perfect parent, so just be a real one ⭐ 🌼Children spell LOVE like this..... T-I-M-E🌼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These two things really help me switch my perspective, stop guilting or berating myself for things that don't matter....and JUST BE THERE for her. I hope, if one day you find you're being unkind to yourself or feeling guilty, that they might be of use to you too! . . . . . . . #mindfulmama #yogamama #mindfulparenting #bepresent #awakened #awakethesoul #singlemomlife #momlifebelike #guilt #parentingquotes #instamakeoverfam #cadencehealth #livebeautifully #livefullyalive #themindfulapproach #mantras #intentionalparenting #presentoverperfect #liveonpurpose #encouragement #breathedeep

Reposting @manirregular : “The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. What is called resignation is confirmed desperation. From the desperate city you go into the desperate country, and have to console yourself with the bravery of minks and muskrats. A stereotyped but unconscious despair is concealed even under what are called the games and amusements of mankind. There is no play in them, for this comes after work. But it is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things...” Henry David Thoreau, Civil Disobedience and Other Essays . . . . . #quietdesperation #irregularman #henrydavidthoreau #writing #podcast #anchorpodcast #spotifypodcast #creativearts #skills #bepresent #beprofound #workoutyourlife #selfactualization #freedomaintfree #makeitcount #personalbranding #design #graphicart #digitalart #artistry #lovetheprocess #creative #artist #retrowave #literature #suckoutthemarrow
Coffee coffee coffee, my go to at the moment! Working 60 hours a week, let my hair down this weekend, not enough sleep and have missed 5 days of yoga camp 😫 I beat myself up for not taking time for myself and my practice. It’s ok to take a break from it. Listen to your body and be kind, the past week I’ve just needed to sleep. I work hard and I needed to play hard. Earlier on in the year I felt a little impulsive and wanted to self destruct. Now I’m happy and content, doing what I want to do and drinking too much coffee. 19 days and I’ll be practicing yoga every day! 🧘🏻‍♀️ . . . #coffee #coffeecoffeecoffee #yogalover #workhardplayhard #selfcare #selflove #wellbeing #yogapractice #yogajourney #yogahelps #yogatherapy #yogaheals #takeabreak #yogalife #yogastudent #yogateachertraining #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawareness #recovery #selfharmrecovery #depressionrecovery #happynatyoga #bepresent #bemindful #bekind

Midnight thoughts: Dreams change. Priorities change. Weight, size, hair, skin change. Friends change. Jobs and career paths change. Favourite foods, books, drinks, hangout spots may change. PREFERENCES change. Values change. Who we want to invest time into changes - WHAT we invest time into changes. How we view money and finances changes. Where we’d like to live, who we’d like to be, and what we want out of life changes. What lights our soul and spark changes. 🌙 I think sometimes these kind of changes to our “fundamental” selves can be scary. We spend so many years knowing ourselves as everything we’ve stuffed into the box of “Who I Am”, that sometimes we don’t even realize or WANT to accept that things may have changed - for the better, or for the worse (hopefully always better). ✨ I’m personally going through one of those major shifts right now. I’ve very recently realized who I am today in my mid-late twenties is SO different from who I was and what I wanted out of life 4-5 years ago. Everything has completely changed, yet I am/was still living like I was the same girl. No wonder I’ve felt so unfulfilled, lost, and unhappy! 🌞 It’s so important to stop and acknowledge when a change or shift has happened, embrace it, reflect on our “old” self, then let go and bravely leap into the next chapter with abandon. No good is had holding onto our past selves and the things we USED to want. — The truth is, real Happiness does not live in the past. It does not live in the future. It lives in the here and now where the real magic happens. 🌻#WhereHappinessBegins . Image by @alicekasslingerie

Lovely reminder for what ever this week throws at you. Set your intention for the day, believe in yourself, be mindful of your thoughts & words - take a little bit of time for yourself at some point in the day to rest and don’t forget to breathe 😂 (it sounds like a lot but it’s really not 😉) No matter what happens just take it one day at a time #BePresent 🧘🏼‍♀️ #BeingPositive #ChildrensYogaTeacher #KidsYoga #YogaCardiff BeingMindful #Mindfulness #ChildrensMindfulness #MentalHealthMatters #YogiThoughts
It’s your time to shine ✨ ⠀⠀ Have you been sitting on the fence with something lately and just don’t know what to do? 🤔 ⠀⠀ Are you wanting to do something exciting but concerned about the outcome, if you might fail? 🤷🏼‍♀️ ⠀⠀ Are you waiting for the ‘right time’ to come along so that you can do that thing you’ve always wanted? ⏰ ⠀⠀ Whatever it is, there really is no better time than now. So just go for it! Life is going quicker by the day and you don’t want to look back and wish you did life differently. Be proud of yourself for doing the things you love, go make yourself happy, have fun, enjoy life and detach yourself from any outcome and just soak in the experience. 🤸🏼‍♀️ ⠀⠀ Life is a journey and we are forever learning and growing. So allow yourself to continue learning and try new things. Accept failure and know it’s just a lesson learnt and a step closer to where you want to be. 🦋 ⠀⠀ We are almost coming towards the middle of December, a new year is coming. So start thinking of what you want to do, how you want your life to be and just go for it ✌🏼

En un día con mucho viento esta paloma estaba luchando por mantenerse en la pequeña rama. No se daba por vencida, finalmente abrió sus alas y asi estuvo por un rato hasta que encontró el equilibrio y voló a un lugar mas seguro. Asi nosotros, aunque sintamos que el viento de la vida es fuerte y casi nos tire, sigamos intentándolo hasta equilibrarnos y poder abrir nuestras alas que son las que nos permitirán ir a un lugar mejor. #vida #equilibrio #resilience #resiliencia #consciousness #life #bestrong #confianza #mindfulness #bepresent #vivirmejor

You are loved more than you know sweet girl! Have the happiest of birthdays ever! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
It's time to start packing! It's always different packing for a weekend away to a month-long overseas holiday. I'm not sure where to start... But its time to start. I found passports and adaptors the other day and was pretty proud of myself. Honestly, I keep putting it off so that my fur babies dont get stressed seeing the suitcases come out. They do not like it.

A couple of weeks ago I went to a life drawing session @thedirtyoldgallery and it just wasn’t happening. It took me most of the two hours, just to put a few lines down. Definitely more practise. Looking forward to see how my drawings develop from this point. Hands and feet, I would love to master #lifedrawing #sketchbook #pencilandpaperco
✨Does the root of a flower influence the flower as something fundamentally different from it? No, surely the root and the flower are one process, and like your head and your feet it all goes together. In that sense then, the universe, and what you or I do, all goes together, and so that picture of the universe is really a picture of you.✨Alan W.

My favourite place in the world is getting away from the hustle & bustle. A place where there are no (or very few) humans about. My soul craves it. I need it for my health of mind & well-being.

YOU are the ONLY PERSON who will put yourself first. It’s not selfish. It’s necessary. Because once you take care of yourself, you can start taking care of others. So let yourself be happy. Make yourself a priority. . . I’ve been trying to work on that recently. I’ve been doing a TON of self reflection, and personal development over the last few months which has been surprisingly relieving. And when I came across this quote today (which I’ve seen and heard before) I felt like I needed to share it. And if you know me, and I mean you reeaallllyy know me... you’d know that I tend to put others before myself. AKA a people pleaser. I sometimes will sacrifice what I want so that others can have or do what they want. I blame it on “I’m just indecisive” or “I don’t have a preference” or “I don’t care.” And sometimes when the decision is hard, and you don’t want to speak your mind or tell someone how much you do care... you bury it. You grin and bear it. And it’s not healthy. . . Now obviously I’ve written a novel here (Are people even reading this?? Put your favorite animal emoji in the comments if you’ve read this far🙈) BUT maybe if you see this and it resonates with you — this can be your sign. Start today. Choose yourself. Be happy. Make yourself a priority. 😊 . . #love #selflove #selfcare #makeyourselfapriority #bepresent #behappy #chooseyou
✨Everyday may not be good... but there is something good in every day✨ What I do when I get into a funk because there are always ups and downs : - A solid yoga session, finding a great class where I can switch my mind off and focus on breath and body. I got to one of my favorite teachers classes and zone into the class forgetting everything els. - I try to be as present as possible during the day, because often in that present moment all is good. It helps me gain better perspective of what I am feeling. - Chatting with friends and family ( in person, Skype, call , message ....) because sharing feelings, being there for others and letting them be there for you is so important. - And finally if all els fails .... a HUGE smoothie bowl What do you do when your feeling down ? • • • • • #funk #feelingdown #motivation #motivationalquotes #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #yogaeveryday #yogaeverywhere #bepresent #mindlessbehavior #mindfulness #friends #family #love #feelbetter #upsanddowns #happy #mind #travel #quotes #behappy #dontworrybehappy

“It’s tempting during Winter to want to stay warm and cozy indoors but getting out into the fresh air and being around nature is a great way to relieve holiday stress and practice mindfulness, something which regular readers will know I’m a big fan of for maintaining good emotional wellbeing.

You can choose to feel lonely or you can choose to feel cluttered. You can choose your emotions. Like depression, and anxiety, happiness, motivation, lethargy, energetic, pissed off... I'm choosing all the good things. Cause I'm not perfect, and I dont have everything I want or need, but I have a breath and I have love to give and I have room to receive more joy. I choose energy and kindness and I choose what I am everyday and every moment that my breath is present. 》》 #chosehappiness #breathe #bepresent #lovelife #bethechangeyouwishtoseeintheworld #happiness #happydays #tuesdayfeels #smiles #love #doggolove #puppyvisits #sunshinewithin #belove #choose
Kar odnese nas. 😐 Ko vzamemo v roke mobi napravico. Pa brskamo po njej. Namesto, da bi se posvetili osebi, s katero smo. 😯 Velikokrat, mar ne? Razvoj prinese s seboj določene pasti. V trenutku smo lahko kjerkoli si zaželimo. Virtualno. 🤔 In pozabimo biti tukaj in zdaj. Z osebami, ki so nam ljube. V živo. Lahko se jih dotaknemo, se objamemo. Si pogledamo v oči. Povemo, kar želimo. Jih poslušamo. 🤗 Ker že naslednji trenutek je lahko vse drugače. V sekundi se lahko vse spremeni. 🤔 Hm. Ko spoštujemo sebe. Spoštujemo druge. Torej tudi sogovornike. Ne vzamimo si tega. Bodimo prisotni. 😇💗 . . #loveyourself #bepresent #respectyourself #motivationspiker
“Doing what you love is not a selfish pursuit. It is in every conceivable way a contribution to humanity. When you're doing what you love, other people observe you in that joy and freedom and it gives them permission (unconsciously perhaps) to feel like they can do the same. So today, go and do what you love and thank you in advance for serving humanity.” – Bernadette Logue photo credit: tutufoundationusa.org
‘I don’t fucking care!’ Some days this is more than acceptable. Embrace, release, breathe, smile and move forward 🙏💗
At this time of year it’s really easy to get caught up in the hype and the rush. Don’t forget to take a moment to pause and enjoy the opportunities to connect with your loved ones. No one will remember how tidy the house was or how much you spent on gifts but they will remember you being there for the special moments and taking time to be present with them. #papamoayoga #slowdown #bepresent #takeabreath #smallmoments

How mindful are you throughout daily life? . The practice of mindfulness involves the process of bringing one's attention to experiences occurring in the present moment alone. It's so so easy to get caught up in the past, and the future, forgetting the present moment. . . #mindfulnessmeditation #dailymindfulness #dailymeditation #meditator #bepresent #hereandnow #livelifeinthepresent #meditators #mbsr #meditating #meditationiskey #meditationinspiration #meditationinstructor #releasetension #holisticwellbeing #innseai #livingyourbestlife #healthymindtips

“The greatest discovery of all time is that a person can change his future by merely changing his attitude” -Oprah Winfrey
Our Dad’s walk before us for many reasons. Other than co- creating us, they are one of our great teachers of life. We learn by watching them, and listening to their stories. But seeing their example is so rich and irreplaceable. Watching how they live and love; how they work and play; how they rest and rejuvenate... this all will stay with us for a lifetime. ✨ My Dad was like no other ... He was witty and sharp, and practical and keen. He became a master of all personal interactions. I always respected that he kept the rules simple and his tolerance for bullshit at a minimum. — Not a bad way to look at life! Remember to keep your ears and heart open when Dad speaks. You don’t want to miss the good nuggets of wisdom like this. ✨✨✨ #Dad #RIPLLW #BabyJeuntz .. 🌱Message for private coaching info. 🌱individual🌱couples🌱teens🌱family🌱empowerment🌱grief🌱Business🌱. @shellinetkolifecoach . #shellinetkolifecoach #mindful #lifecoach #soulonfire #selflove #selfesteem #victim #bepresent #positivevibes #makelifematter #instaquote #singlemom #survivor #empowerment #mindfulness #moveforward #findjoy a#familiesfirst #teens #vulnerable #challenge #happiness #teentrauma #bossbabe #bossmom #entrepreneurcoach #depression #
As the year is coming to a close and we are getting ready to celebrate Christmas. There is something else or rather someone you can celebrate during this beautiful time. It’s YOU. Celebrating you and this amazing journey you have been on this past year. We can get caught up in planning our 2019, which is great. However, it’s so important to take the time to reflect and celebrate the year and where you are right now. To celebrate the lessons learnt, the tough times and how you got through them. To celebrate the big and small steps and the courage it took to take them. To celebrate finally letting go of something that no longer serves you. To celebrate the times you said yes to you. To celebrate your external accomplishments and celebrate your internal ones. To celebrate the times when you listened to your heart. To celebrate the times you followed your curiosity. To celebrate the times you trusted yourself. To celebrate finding what lights you up or not. To celebrate the strength it has taken to get you here right now. To celebrate everything that makes you so beautifully unique inside and out. I know things can get crazy this time of year, hey I am looking forward to sitting in a comfy chair with a good book and just chill. But make it a priority and give yourself a little bit of time celebrating the awesomeness that is YOU. You are totally worth it. 😘🌷
I can tell you this picture was taken in Spring when we lived in Memphis, TN. My flower garden was abundant with lilacs, roses, azaleas and gorgeous blue hydrangeas. The kids picked a bunch for me during a hurried attempt at a photo session. My baby girls were in awe of the blossoms and sweet aromas. My 2nd youngest brought me a bouquet of tattered, assorted flowers and pedals plucked with her tiny , chubby toddler hands clutched haphazardly against her heart. My husband at the time grinned, and instead of reaching my hands out to receive her gift, I instinctively and decisively grabbed my camera. How I wish now 14 years later for a picture of her face glowing with pride presenting her mama with that sweet gift. I could have easily handed over the camera to Dad, but I didn't. I hid behind it because of my self hatred and perceived flaws and imperfections I used my camera as a crutch of avoidance. Mom's and Dad's who hover behind the camera lens, Step back every once in a while and be present physically in photos and not just be a witness pressing a camera shutter. You'll regret not seeing your laughter forever associated with a baby's giggle, or the pride in your eyes as your daughter hugs you beaming, her flushed face turned upwards towards you witnessing your pride in real time after a dance recital. Don't be me, who priar to a couple years ago and thousands of photos later, is in maybe a handful of photos. Be IN the memory not just a witness to it. #loveyourself #stophiding #bepresent #photographers #photography #beapartofthesemasterpieces #dontjustcreatemasterpieces #memoriesfade . #picturesdontlie #therearenoimperfections #noregrets for #alifewellived #lifeisshort #avoidance #camera #cameralens #mom #dad #flawsarebeautiful #flawsarehuman

I’m too excited for this to wait til tomorrow- I’m challenging you to jumpstart your 2019 goals! Three weeks. Three manageable tasks daily. (And three great prizes, one each week!) • It’s pretty simple, and you’re setting yourself up for positive habits heading into the new year 💕 Who’s down? (More info in the AM!)
My husband and I met at college, specifically under this here pavilion. Adam remembers first speaking to me at the water cooler (sounds primal for mates to meet at the watering hole 😂), and here we are 13 years later. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But let’s be real for a sec. In between all that I haven’t always noticed Adam - stopped to really see him. We “see” each other most every day, but between kiddos and a busy life we have to be intentional to be present - to look up and have a conversation without interruption. So for our 10 year dating anniversary, I asked @honeysuckleandwine to capture our nostalgic walk around campus where it all began. ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But if I’m being full transparent, moments before we left Adam said something over the phone in a tone I didn’t appreciate and I sulked for several minutes saying I didn’t want to go. 🙄 In marriage, I have to choose (sometimes against how I feel in the moment) to show up and eventually my heart catches up with my body. Showing up and seeing him should come naturally but it doesn’t always. So if you’re like me and need a reminder, put the phone down, schedule a date night, touch your husband - and in my experience the more I do, the more I want to.
