Joy is vulnerable.
That's why we're afraid to let ourselves feel it. Don't squander joyful moments by wanting for the other shoe to drop. Lean in and practice gratitude.

At 6 the alarm goes. Every day. Not because we need to wake up even earlier than when we were working.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Life is good and we don't want to spoil any time.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's such a treat to sit on our balcony in the morning, everything quiet, the sun's coming up and often my new friend the dove stays with me during my meditation.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Morning rituals set the day.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Give that gift to yourself and the rest of the world you interact all day with.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let’s start with your brain. 🧠
Performing regular gratitude exercises, such as making a list of things you’re grateful for, activates the areas of your brain that are responsible for essential bodily functions and pleasure. 😏

“I don’t like shakes”-me a year ago
“I think I need another shake”-me yesterday 🤷♀️
These superfood shakes that I was 𝘤𝘰𝘯𝘷𝘪𝘯𝘤𝘦𝘥 I didn’t like have literally changed everything for me.
Let me just fill you in on what these shakes have done for ME…
👏🏻Completely gotten rid of my digestive issues
👏🏻Saved me a ton of money on probiotics and prebiotics
👏🏻Helped me have a healthy meal option when there weren’t always good choices (traveling, working, etc)
👏🏻Increased my energy and helped me get through the day
👏🏻Saved me money from buying dessert and candy by curbing my sugar cravings (if you know me you know I have a crazy sweet tooth!)
You know the best part about these shakes? They taste like 🍦🧁🎂

*Laughter & Joy
*Peace, Light & Love ❤🌍 Top of my head this morning 🌄
There is no shortage of things to do, tasks to accomplish and activities to attend. We are overwhelmed with expectations and what we should be doing. Some days we are so exhausted with what we should be doing and what we must get done to care for everyone else that the thought of taking a moment for ourselves becomes laughable. It can even become something that triggers anger for us!😬
How are we supposed to be successful in our careers, care for our homes and families and be expected to get the daily recommended exercise and water intake....and let’s not get started on all those damn fruits and vegetables?😏
Well, a part of our problem is our need to do it all at once and to either succeed or fail with absolutely no middle ground. .
But what if we could start with small things? . .
And what if we could embrace the power of the little slivers of time that we find to move our bodies, the moments we fuel ourselves just a little bit better and focus on how amazing we are just a few moments each day?
What if the small steps TOWARD the goal could be celebrated as much as meeting the goal?👏🏻
What if you had a weekly plan set out for you to accomplish on your time? That celebrates every win along he way?!🥰
Well that’s why I create another challenge starting September 2nd!
A 4 week guide to learning to move your body, celebrate your body, fuel your body and see that caring for your whole body allows you to care more deeply for others!💃🏼
Let’s celebrate every damn step you take toward getting confident AF as I guide you through nutrition, workouts and embracing His power inside you!❤️
Let’s get you registered girl!🙋🏼♀️

Shoutout to all the badass independent goal-getting women out there AND the men who champion us, cheer for us, love and nurture us throughout it all!
I am so grateful to this man. His fire and passion lights me up. And whenever I have a win, he’s there jumping up and down with me.
And whenever I’m struggling, he’ll be there to help me figure it out.
I know it’s an era where it can feel like all we hear is the toxic side of masculinity. But what we don’t see or hear about is all the incredible men that champion their fierce ladies!
So today let’s show gratitude for any of the men and women who continue to be our champions and cheer us on! There are so many of those beautiful souls out there 💛 Grateful I found one for keeps 💍
“Cloud Watcher” ☁️🤓 a sweet composition that came to me as I was falling asleep... this time I paid special attention to what my mind had just put together: colors, shapes... It seems that as I start to relax and drift off colors and shapes start to flow into my mind’s eye like clouds on a breezy day. I always just appreciate them and let them go but this time I was craving some inspiration to take out my acrylics for a change of pace; plus, enjoying @yanceytowne ‘s beautiful colorful shape-full art had me craving a creation of my own. This palette is so off my usual brights 😃 joy now comes in pastels too 😉 #gratitudealways Have a wonderfully creative week dear peeps #acrylicart#originalart#shapes#pastel#clouds#abstractart#abstractlandscape

An embrace! Another type of embrace. Generosity restores the spirit and belief in each other. As a township born and raised woman, I’ve always wished to have a rural home. My family is from Soweto and Sasolburg. Our land, which is what is known as Old Pimville, was dispossessed and we were moved to Klipspruit. We’re part of a land claim that is still on going. Many like to say “no one comes from Joburg” which is not true. There was even an ancient Metropolis of Batswana around Suikerbos nature reserve.
As it is in life, being human, we desire and make prominent that which we do not have. I’ve always longed for a rural life. It’s not an easy life but it’s one that often calls to me with a sweet voice. God willing I will have it. Now, i work to cultivate the feeling I get out here, wherever I may be. May our desires be what’s best for us, may they be God’s plans for us. #GratitudeAlways#Seeker#Alignment
