Before you throw tomatoes at me, listen - I understand that you paid your millions for the degrees you have - I paid millions for mine (LOL) - but, these days - degrees are not as competitive, what sticks out now are certifications, licenses, continuing educational credits, etc.
For some reason, we think degrees = stop learning. That's what should jump start it. Take it from me, I had to learn it. If you stop growing, then you start dying - even in the marketplace and the corporate world.
Don't ever stop learning...competency is built on continuous learning and growth. Trust your mind, you got this. .

Take time... I don’t always meet the standards that others have of me, and it’s never fun learning that someone’s perception of you couldn’t be more wrong. People will often take your good and try to convince others that it’s something else....so I generally just like to go do my own thing by myself (or with my children, of course) most days... But for clarification of my lifestyle regarding maintaining simplicity and peace, here are just a few things that I love to do:
1. Take breaks to breathe and read/study
2. Spoil any guests in my home and especially my close friends, I love making people feel like priority in my presence and in my home...I don’t always accomplish this, but I certainly try, and it’s often on my mind. I love to see people feel like they matter
3. Learn something new almost every day
4. Give my best, not my worst
5. Never care about what others have...what’s bad is I’ve carried this desire for non-materialistic-comparison for so long...that it angers even financially wealthy people to where they loathe me and seek to convince others just the opposite...that baffles me....
6. Age gracefully, not one dyed hair....etc...
7. Improve in some way Every. Single. Day.
8. Never watch tv during the day
9. Drink spring water first thing every morning, and all throughout the day...
10. Don’t procrastinate...emergencies are the exception
11. Meet people halfway when collaborating
Those are just a handful of the things that truly bring simplicity and peace to my life.
12. Smile at strangers

Will you help keep me honest? Day 2. I'm working it into my morning routine. Instead of reading news stories and having my coffee I'm going to practice guitar and have my coffee. Plus, I can read news stories on the bus. The app I'm using is having me start with four chords. G, D, Em and C. I'm getting them down slowly.

Went to the lake. Fed the ducks. Loved it. All in all, a good weekend. 🦆
No matter how many times I fall,
I will Still Rise.☄☄ #Lifelearner
I've never been much of a St. Patrick's girl (I mean, have you tried corned beef??), but I will take the luck and the blessings. So today: "May good luck be with you wherever you go, and your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow." 💚
When you think about it, life is all about perspective. Two people can view the same thing and be in the exact same set of circumstances but yet, have two different outlooks on their situation and future. There’s a positive or something to be learned in every situation. Have a great day!
We don't always know what's going on in someone else's life. Be kind. Be uplifting. Be generous. You never know when you'll be their much-needed lucky rainbow. 🌈
As a life learner, I am super excited about the new learnings I soaked myself into today at the Design your destiny training with Innocent minds.
I connected deeper with my being and got a clearer picture about who I am and what I am meant to be doing with my life.
It was a blissful experience and I cant wait for tomorrow's class😁
You see, I am more excited about next Saturday because of the lives that will change during the Transformational presentation skills training.

When you write a story—when you write anything, really—keep focused by starting with a question. Imagine that someone found your article/email/report/etc. after a quick web search. What was the question they googled? 🤔
Write that question at the top of your page and as you write make sure you’re answering it. If what you’re adding doesn’t relate, don’t include it. The question will keep you focused and on track for writing that is clear, concise and correct. #cltstorytips
Percaya deh, gk ada satu orang pun yg suka dgn kesombongan. Bahkan Tuhan pun benci.
Jadi, jangan pernah sombong.
Di saat kita dipercayakan banyak kelebihan, pakai untuk jadi saluran berkat. Bukan dijadikan alat utk sombong krn merasa "Lebih".
Jangan lupa, mudah sekali bagi Tuhan utk mengambil semua kelebihan itu & memberikannya kepada orang lain yg punya kerendahan hati.
Nanti bisa aja pada akhirnya kita harus minta pertolongan dr orang yg kita sombongin & anggap remeh. Malu kan? Uda bersikap sombong, eh ujung2nya minta tolong.
Jadi dimana coba bagusnya dgn kesombongan?
Namanya hidup, roda berputar. Gk selamanya di atas/ di bawah terus.
Bisa aja yg dulu di atas krn kesombongannya jadi jatuh & bisa jg dulu yg di bawah diangkat derajatnya.
Tidak mau memaafkan & menyimpan dendam jg salah satu bentuk kesombongan loh..
Tuhan yg punya segalanya aja mau memaafkan kita yg berdosa.
Lah..siapa kita mau ngelewatin Tuhan dalam hal memaafkan?
Tidak mau belajar jg bentuk kesombongan.
Uda tau punya sifat & kebiasaan jelek, tapi tetap kayak batu gk mau berubah.
Selalu merasa paling benar, tidak mau menerima masukan. Pantang mengakui kesalahan & selalu menyalahkan orang lain.
Lalu mengharapkan hidup yg penuh berkah?
Mau terlihat "Hebat" dgn menghalalkan semua cara jg bentuk kesombongan.
Hidup "maksa" utk jadi keren ngehits tajir melintir padahal pencitraan aja. Ngapain coba? Itu malah menunjukan no self esteem/insecure. Orang dgn self esteem yg baik akan hidup nyaman apa adanya, karena ia tau nilai dirinya bukan terbatas penampilan luar.
Ingat, uang mau sesedikit apapun bisa buat hidup.
Tapi uang mau sebanyak apapun gk akan bisa mencukupi gaya hidup.
Kita datang ke dunia gk bawa apapun, nanti pulang pun gak akan bawa apapun. Yg dibawa nanti cuma amal ibadah.
Jadi apa yg perlu disombongkan?😁
"Kecongkakan mendahului kehancuran, dan tinggi hati mendahului kejatuhan".

Dari Abu Hurairah Radhiyallahu anhu , dari Nabi Muhammad ﷺ, Beliau bersabda, “Tujuh golongan yang dinaungi Allâh dalam naungan-Nya pada hari dimana tidak ada naungan kecuali naungan-Nya: (1) Imam yang adil, (2) seorang pemuda yang tumbuh dewasa dalam beribadah kepada Allâh, (3) seorang yang hatinya bergantung ke masjid, (4) dua orang yang saling mencintai di jalan Allâh, keduanya berkumpul karena-Nya dan berpisah karena-Nya, (5) seorang laki-laki yang diajak berzina oleh seorang wanita yang mempunyai kedudukan lagi cantik, lalu ia berkata, ‘Sesungguhnya aku takut kepada Allâh.’ (6) seseorang yang bershadaqah dengan satu shadaqah lalu ia menyembunyikannya sehingga tangan kirinya tidak tahu apa yang diinfaqkan tangan kanannya, serta (7) seseorang yang berdzikir kepada Allâh dalam keadaan sepi lalu ia meneteskan air matanya.”
Hadits ini shahih, diriwayatkan oleh Al-Bukhari (no. 660, 1423, 6479, 6806),
Jumat nih gaes!! 😍😍😍

Take me back to the snowy mountains, please. 💫
Apa yg sudah kami lakukan sembilan tahun ini pada seorang anak?
Di titik ketika dia tidak lulus ujian hafalan Al Quran dalam forum sidang, dia santai saja.
Sebagai siswa kelas 3 hafalan ayat-ayat yg diujikan adalah Juz 30 yang dilalui dalam 3 saringan. Di ujian terakhir inilah dia tidak bisa menjawab saat diminta melafalkan ayat-ayat dari surat yg disebutkan gurunya.
Selama persiapan ujian-ujian itu peran kami sangat minim. Ya, sangat minim.
Dan, sore tadi dia sudah pesan maminya bangun pagi esok hari untuk mendampinginya mulai hafalan lagi.
Sepertinya dia belajar bahwa hasil tergantung usahanya.
Dia juga ingin kami belajar kalau dia butuh didampingi.
Kamu boleh, Nak!😅😁😅 #parenting #babygirl #lifelearner #familytime #family #sekolah #pendidikananak
I learned of this book during the workshop given by Dr. Greg Carr, J.D., African American Studies Professor & Law Adjunct Faculty at @howard1867.
And while there ordered it online. I came home to it in my mail. #lifelearner
I did Cardio Core today from week 1 of 80DO, I really love this program too, I loved learning all the ways Autumn utilized the sliders for ab work and the resistance bands for Everything else(however they weren't used in this workout today). I watched a TED talk today and a medical professional was talking about the importance of vitamin E as an antioxidant. He said not were a great way to get vitamin E, however he recommended instead of snacking on them add them to salads or oatmeal etc that way you don't overdue it with calories. I found this statement to to be helpful so thought I would share, remember "If it doesn't challenge you it won't change you!" I find these to be great words to live by! I also heard in a continuing ed webinar today another great mantra " Live a life worth writing about. Did anyone ever tell you to sit down and write a plan for your life? Nobody ever told me that, I thought I would just figure it out along the way. This was addressed in the CE webinar I was listening to, and I was just like Wow, I am printing that slide. I mean how profound to sit down & write and write down you aspirations, your goals, where you want to be next year or 5 years from now?, what are you grateful for now?, how are you giving back to your community?, who are you inspiring?, are you happy?,what would make you happy?" Anyway this is my brain🍳😂 random thoughts and learning lessons. Hope you had a wonderful day✌❤🧘♀️💪 #fitover40 #healthylifestyle #conqueryourmind #transformyourlife #havealifeplan #inspireothers #autumncalabrese #80dayobsession #healthcoach #lifelearner #randomthoughts #aspiretobemore
I used to be MONDAY MOTIVATED. Thoughts like... Why would you ever start something on a Wednesday? Why during the month and not the beginning of the month? March is basically over, I’ll start in April. If I can’t go all week, I’ll wait and go Monday next week. ENOUGH OF THAT SMALL TALK, Darlings. Today is a really good day to go. A really great day to start. TODAY. Not Monday or the 1st or the beginning of the next thing. TODAY. Go today, do it today, begin today! #moveit #gettoit #selftalk #mondaysbelike
I can't imagine that I met this guy when I was 25 (just a few short years ago 😉) we didn't even think about how we'd evolve together. We dream together, we grow together and we learn together. I am SO grateful that even being so young when we met, that these qualities would surface in our marriage.

On my way to the Canal, I walked through a market place full of vendors selling everything from flowers to the catch of the day. Muslim women offered traditional fabrics from home with bright colors and ornate designs while children darted through the crowds enjoying the carefree easiness of the day. This was a side of Paris I had yet to experience. Diverse, energetic and uncommonly French. .
The best part of the journey is not necessarily the destination but the roads you travel to get there. .

Proud to know these women. Proud to sit with these women. Proud to rock fitness, business, and life with these women .
All walks of life, all different expertise, experiences, views, personalities. But, one collective vision to rock this life in our strongest form, mind and soul to create lasting IMPACT rooted in purpose + passion 🔥 .
We are stronger together. We can create change. Shining Gods light to those around us. Making an impact and have a freaking fun time while doing it. .
International women’s Day this year has a whole new meaning to me now, I see it so differently, and in the very best way. The women, the friendships, the lessons and the learnings since building and creating this entirely different life, business and future, have changed everything for me. .
And a heck of a lot JOY! ⚡️👯♀️❤️
Ladies!?! You set my soul on fire!!! I freaking love you all so much!!!! Our entire TeamFitRevelation! You are magic. 🙏🏻
