I gave notice on my apartment yesterday, and this morning, it was already listed. I was not prepared for the flood of emotion that followed.
This apartment represents so much. It was my first exercise of independence following my divorce. It was where I redefined family as leader of my tribe. It was where my daughter joined my journey. It was where I chose to change my trauma narrative from survival to thriving.
This week, I'll begin dismantling the external appearance of everything I built here. Releasing things that won't make the journey to Cali and sealing the box on things that will. As the transformation of the external gets underway, these cards remind me to take inventory of the internal.
This week, I'll notice the strength I've gained in standing on my own two feet. Notice the bravery that'll now launch me across the country for new adventures. Notice the emotional safety I've built in trusting I've got me and mine. And notice my courage to live life fully in spite of fear.
This space has been good to my soul, and I release it with a grateful heart. Asé.

My workout from Friday messed my back up. Shortly after this picture I started to feel it. No matter how much I adjust and tuck and squeeze anything, hip hinges and I don’t get along. Yesterday I was sent home early from work because the pain made me throw up and cry. Spent the night with a heating pad and edibles and then tiger balm when I went to bed. My wife is so awesome though. She HATES tiger balm but she put it on for me last night and this morning. Hoping I am feeling better tomorrow. I won’t be finishing ALMO right now but I will be starting 21DF.
Please, please, again do not engage in anything you have even the slightest suspicion you will regret later. We are facing a massive f*ck up opportunity at the moment, do not slip, not today, not any other day, but especially not now.
Emotions are energy in motion, free currency, free manifestation power. So use it wisely, channel it into something creative, productive and meaningful. Do not try to numb it because then your ability to co-create with the universe dissipates. Do not run away and try to escape from what you are feeling, but rather leave a legacy. Be the turning point, be that inner strength that you so much wish would come externally, be the unstoppable force of nature through your humanness, through your vulnerabilities and pain. Just show up in the state you currently are and allow yourself to be seen, with the tears in your eyes, with the love in your heart. No more hiding, be human.

If they truly love you, you’ll never need to chase them, convince them or beg them for anything.

In the face of earthly troubles, call on the inner goddess within...give her your troubles...she will help you shed your fears and reveal the truest, most authentic being within.

LOVE YOUR DAMN SELF.
Your body is pretty sick of your constant insults.
Your body is tired of the way you treat it.
Your body is over not ever being good enough.
And truth be told... Will it EVER really be good enough if you keep moving the mark?
How about loving your body just the way you are?
Then you’ll nourish it with good food, rest, exercise that feels good, and empathy.
Your body doesn’t need your shame.
There’s enough of that out there in the world already.
Learn to love yourself and you’ll never regret it 💕

I’m in an ocean of anxiety right now.. assignments to be done (remedial massage diploma), homeschooling my girls, our home to take care of, our relationship.. me and him. My guy knows me and gets me, he knew these plant babies needed to come home to me today and he knows I need his strength tomorrow to get through my full day.. love him, loving me...
ONG NAMO GURU DEV NAMO ✨✨✨✨✨So grateful for my dear Pat, my guardian angel forever. 💕It’s been almost 2 months since you’ve fully grown your wings and committed to a full time samadhi state. Everyday, I am blown away at how much you are an integral part of my yoga practice. 🥰Pat was the first yoga teacher I vibed with upon moving back to the Bay Area in 2017. She also encouraged me to start teaching with her at the El Camino YMCA in Mountain View. So with the help of @matchamasha
, I did just that. Pat’s essence and knowledge of yoga radiated from the core of her being. So much love for you my dear Pat. I feel you help guide me everytime I teach, and if someday I for some reason don’t, I’m calling you in 👼🏼
When we heal ourselves, we heal the world.
When we are kind and loving to ourselves, we are kind and loving to others. If we are healthy, the world is healthy and people see us as we are.
We must not think of ourselves as separate from the earth. We have roots and blossom like the trees and we need water like them. We breathe and we hope for better days. I try to practice something new everyday because I can start fresh everyday and apply what I learned the day before.
Kindness is only the first step. The first step in curing loneliness, hate, doubts, fears and so many other things we bottle up inside; and the only time they come out is to interact with others.
Just how well are you interacting with others? I’m not perfect, I have my hellish days but it helps me to be better when I keep this in mind.
Remember to breath and to keep going.

✨ Investing in yourself is more than just money. ✨
I used to get so mad at people telling me that I needed to invest massive amounts of money in myself in order to value myself.
✨ It made no sense to me how money could prove that I did or did not value myself. ✨
I knew that my value was not based solely on money and I still believe that, but I also believe that we can undervalue ourselves easily when it comes to money.
One of the things I struggled with the most was making a monetary investment in myself. I operated by investing what I had to in order to keep my business afloat. I was frugal and only spent what was absolutely necessary.
Now, I think that is a great quality to have, the ability to manage your finances and be frugal. But what I didn’t realize was that by only spending money on what was absolutely necessary, I was holding myself back.
✨ Then, I finally realized that if I didn’t change something that I was going to stay in this survival mode. I had to believe that if I invested my money in something truly valuable that it would come back to me ten fold.
I knew that I could no longer keep trading for services hoping that someone on the same level as me could take me to the next level. .
So I got super clear about the person that I needed to help me get to the next level.
✨ What I realized is, that meant investing in someone who was at the level that I wanted to be at! That meant that if I wanted to be making 10k months, I needed to hire someone who was doing just that!
That meant that I needed to find someone who could teach me to allow myself to be valued not just by my beliefs about myself but by how I was willing to invest in myself.
So I found someone who valued themselves the way I wanted to value myself.
✨ And I was shocked! I wanted to believe that it wasn’t going to work, that what I had been telling myself that whole time was true, investing in myself like that wouldn’t matter. But instead I shifted my beliefs about money faster than I ever had before!
We can do affirmations till we’re blue in the face.
✨ It is when we take actions on those affirmations that we truly move mountains!
Sometimes walking away is the best choice. From a project or person or profession. Sometimes is the right thing to do, the best thing to do to take care of you. Sometimes it’s a necessity if it’s constantly draining your joy and your spirit, so never be afraid to just do it!
Sometimes you gotta walk away simply to make space for something bigger and better.
Take a look at yourself. Take a look at who you are. What you want. What you deserve. What you need.
What is your passion? What is your purpose? Who brings out your sweetest smile, fuels your drive and makes you want to be a better you?
What stands in your way? How do you overcome?
Whether it’s a workout goal or a yoga pose or a relationship or course of study or project or promotion…
It doesn’t matter…
How are you going to achieve it? How are you going to make it real, make it last?
Face it, it’s not going to happen on its own. If it does, there will eventually be something that causes disturbance! That’s part of personal growth and building character.
There will be challenges, and you will get frustrated. You will want to walk away, quit, give up.
Do not do it.
Do not ever give up on your dreams, passions, or that person who deserves your love. Do not ever doubt that you deserve to be loved, and you deserve to have all your dreams come true.
How do you know when to stay or when to walk away? Listen to your heart. Listen to your body. Listen to your breath. Come into quietness and stillness and listen to your own truth. You already know the answer. You’ve been gifted with Divine Wisdom, so sit still and tune in to it!
Stop seeking advice from the outside. Stop asking your friends what they would do? Sure it’s good to talk to others to process things, but stop looking to others for the basis of your final decisions.
You’ve got this. You know what matters to you. Now, do what you’ve got to do to fulfill your purpose.
You’re going to be amazed by your own strength.
