Музыка становится старше, мы идём дальше, двигаемся чаще быстрее, интереснее, не для других, а для потребностей своего я, где бы его порою не носило. Редкая поездка, когда мне не нужен отдых после «отдыха». Не хочется покидать остров, но и превращать всю жизнь в один день солнечного сурка тоже желания нет:)
Идеальная формула - когда ты уезжаешь с планами и обдумываешь их возле океана, со стороны что-то отваливается, что-то дорабатывается, после же ты спокойно приступаешь к реализации. Москва не даёт возможности выдохнуть и сделать правильное решение, а тут, словно возле головы кружит маленькая стайка бизнес ангелов, нашёптывающая мне, что такого интересного произвести на свет.
Такая зависимость имеет право на жизнь, главное не перегореть.
Мои Ребята там снимают коммерцию, а я им заявки любви и добра везу❤️❤️❤️, будет headshot теперь много полезного в массы нести . Открыт к светлым идеям, предложениям и к проектам на улучшение ! Love ya. #htv #production #filmmaking

9 months now since my back went... slowly slowly getting back to where I was. Starting to up the weight now again. New goals have been set and I’m bloody buzzing that I am able to lift heavy (ish) again. Feeling awesome at the moment. Happy with my decision to cut out alcohol out of my life as this is a HUGE part of feeling good physically and mentally. Alcohol no matter how much I ever drank made me feel horrendous for days after and it would interfere with my motivation for anything. It has only been around 7 weeks since I last had an alcoholic drink but I will be sticking to this 💪💪 no doubt I’ll be called “boring” for this decision but 1. You’re entitled to your opinion but be open minded about these things and read up about the effects.... 2. I will still be attending things just not drinking 😂 3. I think it’s boring wasting days of your life feeling shit. #soberlife #feelingawesome #midweekmotivation #happyhumpday
This is incredibly good!! #Repost @supamanhiphop
I have lost so many family members to alcohol and substances over the span of my life on earth. My dad, my uncles, aunties, grandmas, cousins, friends and so many more. Funeral after funeral we attend. My grandma May Takes The Gun said “it’s like a spirit you allow in when you take that first drink. Then after that it it will take control and become easier to drink all the time”. I made the decision to never drink and it’s been a better life with less detours, less drama and hardships. If you are struggling with these things or just starting out. Make a stand today to be sober for your family, your kids, your future! Because if not, It can take you further than you ever thought you’d go, make you stay longer than you ever thought you’d stay and make you do things you never thought you’d do. You already know. Strength and Wisdom! 🙏🏽 #illuminatives #supaman #sober #soberlife #traditions #values #drugfree #alcoholfree #nativeways #livesober #chooselife #honor #dontdrink
Full Moon Kirtan 🙌🏼 The last time I sang in public where my voice could be heard...
Was 20 years ago, drunk at a Kareoke night. 😬
I saw the video the next day...
Me and Bethia belting Girls Just Wanna Have Fun at the Mint in San Francisco...
And vowed to never sing again 😬🙊😂 Until last night.
I felt the urge to hear one of my fave mantras...
Next thing I know I volunteer to lead a round of Kirtan 😳
Om gam ganapataye namaha.... 🙌🏼 It. Was. So. Much. Fun.
I was nervous the first half...
Me singing alone.
The tribe joining after.
Call and response style.
Then my friend Raudia whispers in my ear, “louder!” I picked up the pace, the volume, and really went for it.
Not sure that I sounded good.
But it felt soooooo good to sing.
Let it out.
Celebrate the full moon.
And invoke my fave elephant god Ganesha 🐘🙏🏼 Om gam ganapataye namaha.... This manta is about new beginnings.
(I just googled it to see what it means 😂😂)
Which is actually perfect for me right now.
What a trip.
How much fun is right across fear.
Om gam ganapataye namaha.... 🙌🏼
I tried to explain my sobriety on my FB... cause everyone always asks why. I don’t mind it sometimes if it’s genuine but I think it’s a lack of understanding that causes me to get frustrated and feel like my sobriety is something to hide. Like I just thought hey I don’t wanna drink anymore so I won’t and I won’t struggle at all. Which is false. It’s tough. And tougher cause it’s everywhere. Alcohol is so prominent in society nowadays that saying “hey no I don’t drink the poison anymore cause it was taking over my daily life” isn’t what people want to hear. Booze is all over the place. Look in any store and it’s there. Not the actual alcohol but the things that have the images of alcohol on them... like clothing speaking about day drinking or that mommy needs a wine... Up until my decision to sober up, my favourite shirt was one that says “drinks well with others”
I decided to let it be. I deleted the post. I can’t explain things to those who’ll never understand. The people that say “oh if you have one it won’t hurt you” Actually it will. One will turn into two and so on... then I’m back to where I started. So I digress. And I’m going to just have to say no and not feel obligated to say why. #mywhy #sober #soberthoughts #soberlife #sobermom #recovery #keepgoing
Liquid Death 💀💦 is here!! I’m so proud of my friend Patrick who created this. Not only is this product top shelf in design, it’s the best tasting water you will ever have. Not even playing. #soberlife #hydrate #liquiddeathspringwater
I can give you a million and a half reasons how @mikefernandezofficial
has been a blessing in my life.
His friendship for me has been like swimming to surface and catching that fresh breath after sitting way down at the bottom of the ocean.
When I felt helpless, he reminded me..remain hopeful. When I felt like giving up.. remain faithful. Pray harder. Sky is the limit. Let God work and do what only He can do.
Man. Life is so SO good.
Look up and look around. Surround yourself with people who get it. That pray for you.
I can’t thank you enough for your friendship and always making me feel so.. welcomed. #secondchances #sobriety #soberlife #family #friends

cleandate 05/27/2018 / 8 Months 23 Days
Day 24 alcohol free. By the skin of my teeth.
I posted earlier about travel rage (sat for an hour on the runway, not moving. Why? We needed de-iced. Apparently it takes an hour to determine that) and wanting to go face first into the beverage cart on the plane.
I did not. Not because I'm so disciplined, but because I knew I wouldn't be able to drink as fast as I wanted to.
I get so overly frustrated when things like that happen that are out of my control. It's almost childlike...my inability to keep my perspective... Also because we had to run from one end of the airport to another to even make that connecting flight (that we then sat on for an hour), I lost my Fitbit 😪👎. Guess I had too many bags hanging off my wrist.
To sum up, I inevitably turn into a big baby that cries for a bottle (of booze) at some point during traveling.
Going to bed, sober peeps. Thanks for reading!

"I hate addiction. No matter what it is: cigarettes, drugs, alcohol, food, work, etc. Whatever it is that you’re struggling with, that is making life hard, please fight. I fought for years before it started making any difference. I hate seeing people struggle; but even worse, I hate seeing people give up. I know, I gave up a bunch , and I SERIOUSLY believed dying was the only way I’d “beat” my bad addictive habits. Keep fighting 🙏🏽💪🏽, one day you’ll start winning the small battles and they’ll start gaining momentum. 🙏🏽🙏🏽" @davidnonnynonemacher
for more! 🙌
What Is an Addiction?
We all know that addiction can be fatal. But did you know that deaths resulting from addiction tops that of heart disease and cancer? Some common deaths resulting from addictions are more obvious to us than others—like heroin, drunk driving, tobacco, and alcohol use, while other less obvious addictions like food—that can lead to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke—we tend to overlook.
Addictions affect us not only physically, but also psychologically and spiritually. Let’s spend a bit of time pulling back the curtain on addictions to save our body, mind, and spirit.
Addictions fall into two main categories:
Substance addictions—these involve chemicals. Common examples are alcohol, caffeine, marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and prescription meds.
Process addictions—these involve our behavior. Common process addictions include gambling, pornography, shopping, and exercise.
The medical diagnosis of addiction lists these 11 symptoms: *Failing main duties at school, home, or work *Continuing despite physical harm *Frequent cravings or strong desire to use the substance or engage the behavior *Frequent social or relationship problems *Need more to get the same effect *Withdrawal symptoms *Using larger amounts or spending more time on the substance or behavior than intended *Failed efforts in stopping *Significant amount of time, energy, and thought regarding the substance or behavior *Time spent on substance or behavior is more than time spent on social, work, or fun activities *Continued use despite many harmful consequences
Do you see any of the symptoms above in you or a friend?
0-1: No problem
4-5: Moderate >6: Severe
Simply put, addiction is when something is harming you in some way and you can’t stop doing it. Addiction controls and harms you. No one begins using a harmful substance or behavior hoping it will take control over them. Yet, so often we let these things do just that. Take a look at yourself for a minute.
What substance or behavior in your life, if taken away, would make life stressful for you?
Would God still be enough for you?
Recently I've been learning about how much I'm obsessed with self improvement. It occurred to me that simply being right where I am, and truly accepting myself as I am—includes accepting that I'm usually tied in knots of self judgement. My mind is busy comparing my tummy with their 28 pack, my intelligence with their goofball thinking, my words with their published book, my life story with my fantasy of their flawlessness, my divorce compared to their 20/40/60 year Marriage..., my crying when I'm a 40yr old dude against the picture of basically the Colorado Marlboro Man, and on and on and on...
Can I accept that guy? Can I not only accept him, but also accept the difficult judgmental feelings? Can I speak to the feelings with kindness and compassion? If I fail at doing that, can I notice that? Can I move to gentle noticing and let the breath keep carrying me back home each time I stray into evaluation?
I don't know about tomorrow, but I will give myself that freedom tonight. One day at a time.
I can’t believe I’m almost 2 and a half years sober already.. time flies. Boy oh boy sobriety never looked so good #soberlife #soberstrong
Remember that you will not regain self-esteem overnight, it will not just magically happen without any effort on your part.
Working hard to increase your confidence and self-esteem will make staying sober that much easier, and contribute to your overall happiness and well-being...👌

I’m proud to share this picture! I’m so grateful to share my progress, my results, my hard work, my dedication, my consistency and my lifestyle change. The picture on the left was taken in Thailand and it was at a time in my life where I drank too much, used food and booze as a crutch and I lost myself for a few years after that photo was even taken. It’s crazy to think back to my bad days and how I used to feel helpless, hopeless and like they went on forever. Now I feel like life is passing by too quickly and I just want it to slow down.
Sober, healthy, happy, clear headed, connected, self aware, helpful, reliable, trustworthy, honest, open, confident, hard working and consistent. Those are all words I would use to describe myself and my lifestyle now, but most of all thankful. I sit down with so many people who think that it can’t happen for them. They feel like they’re doomed or destined to suffer. Hear me when I say you are meant for greatness, you are meant for smiles, laughter, love and endless possibilities. You are not meant to simply exist - but you have to let yourself be great. Make a change, do something different and work every single day at being a better person. It’s crazy to me to see photos like this, I know I practically lost the equivalent of a young person in weight loss, but I gained so much more. Security, self worth, confidence in my decisions and my actions. I’ve learned to love my journey, embrace my story and share the good, the bad and the ugly. Somedays I might share too much and other days I might not share enough - but today I’m sharing a little ‘risky’ photo in honour of all of my hard work and days that I’ve put in. It’s not for you, it’s not for the likes, not for the attention or the comments - but it’s for the girl who needed to see this so that she knows she’s not alone and in all reality it’s for me. It’s for that poor young girl on the left who used to run from cameras, the one who would turn her back, make a funny face or delete the photos the next day so the rest of the world wouldn’t see how far she let herself go. Here I am world and I’m proud to be HER🌎.
