What’s been your proudest accomplishment so far?⠀
“There have been many exciting parts of my career, and I could easily point to a line on my resume that I am super proud of. But perhaps the accomplishment that I am most proud of is learning how to love myself as I am. The moment I realized that being successful was way more than just having a great voice or acting chops was also the moment I realized being comfortable with myself would lead to being confident and standing out in every room. I didn’t need to dress or look a certain way to have a career. In fact, what was most important was being unapologetically myself no matter what, and that has brought me a long way ever since. Sure, there’s still a long way to go, and I have moments when I fumble, but I am proud of growing out of the phase of my life where I tried to be what I felt like others wanted me to be.” Image: @kriscendo

Day 6 of the 8 class #BIRTHFIT
Postpartum Series is all about #sisterhood
. A challenging piece of the #motherhoodtransition
is maintaining friendships as your family grows. It's important to set time aside for all of your needs. This can mean time with yourself, quality time with your partner (without technology), or with your babies (without distractions). At the end of the day we all need someone that we can pick up the phone and call, even if it's to talk about poopey diapers, vomit in your hair, and #teamnosleep
How Is My Due Date Determined?
Normally, your due date is 280 days (40 weeks or about 10 months -- also known as 10 lunar months) from the first day of your last period. The assumption is that you have a 28-day menstrual cycle. Some of us do – but only about 10-15%. The rest have cycles that can vary anywhere from 21-35 days in length. And then even that number can vary from month to month.
A full-term pregnancy ranges from 37 weeks to 40 weeks and 6 days, so your actual date of delivery can be different from your estimated date of delivery, which is sometimes called estimated date of confinement, or EDC. Typically, only 5% percent of women deliver on their due date.
Our attachment to “due dates” may cause unnecessary caution, concern or added anxiety, when in fact – your baby was born term, just a little bit before the estimated due date. The exact trigger for spontaneous labor is not really well understood. Some ideas that have persisted over time include the following: a significant shift in the estrogen/progesterone ratio prior to labor beginning. When estrogen levels increase toward the end of pregnancy, it increases the levels of prostaglandin production which is known to assist in the ripening of the cervix. These heightened levels also increase the number of oxytocin receptors that exist on the uterus, as well as increase the contractility of the uterus overall. The baby’s adrenal glands and pituitary glands may actually play a significant role in controlling the timing of labor. The fetal production of the hormone cortisol can lead to increased levels of prostaglandin, as well increase the maturation of their lungs which in some way might trigger that babies are ready to be born. Let’s begin to look at the calendar in this new way, and honor this natural, normal and physiological start to labor. #duemonth #duedate #pregnancy #pregnant #empoweredbirth #empoweringwomen #sanfrancisco #doula #doulasupport #doulasofcolor

... but it is so worth it!!!
Coaching has transformed my life, physically, mentally and now financially! I have earned some freedoms these past few months, freedom to be vulnerable by allowing myself to let go and not care so much what others think, freedom to live the life I want without the extra lbs that effected my mood and confidence, freedom to pay some of my children’s college expenses that I didn’t prepare and plan for.
If you had told me 6 months ago that I would be where I am in my fitness journey and earning a paycheck TOO I would never have believed you!!! Sounds so cliche.. but it HAPPENED!
I can do hard things... if it was easy, everyone would do it! The hard is what makes it GREAT💛
People always get my age wrong. This body is 37 years old now but is constantly mistaken for being in early 20s. Last time I saw my spiritual teacher first thing he said “you look like you are 16.” Ok it could be because I am his spiritual child. May be because of the childlike aliveness in my being seeing him. Either way it was pretty cool to hear him say that. .
I genuinely & constantly feel like I am 16 to 22 years old now. While being sober, eating healthy, practicing energy hygiene and having a good spiritual practice probably contribute much to this anti-aging, my intuition says the number one reason I feel young in my body and spirit is that the life of passion being lived through this body in harmony with the silence and devotion being cultivated through it.
I have a fulfilling love life and friendships with people from all states of consciousness and walks of life. My mood is playful.
When angry I express my anger, when sad I have a good cry, when overwhelming joy come I do a goofy dance and when newly in love I seriously act like a teenager. .
I am also a mother, spiritual healer, performance coach, a business owner and co head of our household. If you talk to the beings on the other end of these dharmic relationships I am sure they’ll say I am authoritative, responsible, work hard and strict just as much as I am caring, compassionate and committed to healing where I need to heal.
The point I am trying to make here is that we have so many archetypes being played as us and through us. As we get older we tend to suppress some of the ones that keep us young and alive. .
Don’t let that happen! Find the perfect balance, honor and integrate all aspects of your being in harmony and embody them all with a passion. Immortality and eternity isn’t just for the spirit and being. It could be for the individual and the body. When truth is recognized in every point of itself and when true freedom is embodied down to bone marrow anti aging is just a byproduct!
Well at least it’s what I am seeing. May all who ready this be blessed with Amritattva, the sweet nectar of immortality!
You cannot pour from an empty cup. So whether it's 30 minutes of exercise. Time reading your bible. A cup of coffee A L O N E. Make sure that you are daily filling yourself up. #learntorest
“I’m 16 y/o. I’ve been an avid dancer since I was 3. When I was 8, I was in ballet class when I suddenly developed an excruciating headache. I planned to head home, but on my way out of class, my arms and hands fell paralyzed. My mom took me to the urgent care center, and by the time we got there, I couldn’t walk, but I could still move my legs.
When most people think of spinal cord injuries, they don’t think of people like me. I was once a quadriplegic, but I’ve recovered the ability to walk, making me an extra unique case with my shoulders, arms, and right hand partially paralyzed, and my left hand completely paralyzed.
I’ve now discovered my love for choreographing dances, since when I started dancing again after I got sick I realized I couldn’t do the arm movements like I used to. I choreograph my dances so they’re suitable for my body, and I love doing it!
I love encouraging other people with disabilities to live their dreams and stay positive. I do get frustrated sometimes, but I’ve found that staying positive is what gets me through the hard times! I always try to see the good things in life rather than focusing on the bad!

JUST A REMINDER 🔥🔥🔥 The idea of "eminent death" has the ability to light a fire under some people. 🔥 But the concept of metaphorical death and rebirth may not be enough for others to really pierce into the urgency of their existence. 🔥🔥🔥 I believe everyone is born with their own personal mission. Some are quicker to accepting and yielding to their purpose than others. 🔥🔥🔥 I think about a handful of people like Freddie Mercury, Alexander Hamilton, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr, JFK, Gandhi, even Tupac Shakur. 💎
They had a greater sense of destiny and they took action toward their vision. Some of them knew they would soon die so they went to work with that intensity. Others had a feeling they were paving a path they may not live to see the completion of. 🔥🔥🔥 They refused to distract themselves from the fact that death truly is eminent and we really don't get privy to our own competition date. 🔥🔥🔥 LIVE FULLY. LOVE FULLY. LIVE YOUR LIFE AS IF IT MATTERS. YOUR LIFE LITERALLY IMPACTS THE OUTCOME OF THE EVENTS TRANSPIRING IN THE WORLD TODAY. 🔥🔥🔥 What lights a fire under your ass?

Going to make the most of our last couple of days here, especially as this morning has been spent running around different offices trying to understand Greek bureaucracy 😫 Definitely in need of a paddle board sesh now to clear my mind and de-stress! 💙
. . .
Transport me out of this office and into the ocean please 🏝 I hope you're Wednesday is going better than mine 😘
I finally made a #toasttuesday
🥑🍞 ft some unripened oranges in our Greek Garden 🍊

I was feeling very low energy yesterday and pretty much just slept the whole day on the beach under an olive tree 🌿 I think the heat got to me a little ☀️ But today I was feeling much more like myself and back on the bicycle and paddle board 🚴♀️🏄♀️
. . .
I hope you've been having a fabulous Tuesday 💕
💅🏻 THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED 💅🏻
Anyone that knows me, knows I've always been a nail-biter 😬 I would bite my nails when I was nervous, I would bite my nails when I was bored, I would bite my nails when they were dry and I would bite my nails because I didn't like the fact that they were short (VICIOUS CIRCLE 🙈) I was ashamed and embarrassed about them.
. . .
BUT NOW!!! For the first time ever I have long nails 🙌🏼🎉 (that are my own) 🤗
. . .
For my birthday/holiday I decided to treat myself to a fun manicure by the wonderful @somibeauty_
❤ (swipe right to see her amazing work on my tiny nails and be sure to check out her gallery 💅🏻) I did my best to not bite them for 1 month before and now it's been 2 weeks since I had them done. Last night they peeled off because of all the time I've been spending in the sea 🧜🏻♀️ But I was so surprised at how long they've grown 😄 I think all the VITAMIN D is helping ☀️
. . .
This is a huge achievement for me and I couldn't be happier ❤
🍹 CHEERS 🍹
