Snow White and the Seven DORKS for Halloween this year! I was Hippy, but we had the other dorks: Snorty, Geeky 1, Geeky 2, Sparkly, Crabby and last, but not least, Artsy Fartsy!
One of my favorite weekends to camp when we decorate and the campground is FULL of Halloween spirit and magic!
Not to mention how lucky we are to have friends who are as goofy as we are! ❤️ then to pieces!! So poll: WHO LOVES TO DRESS UP? Yay Lenny’s???⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️
Somewhere out there is a girl who is going through what I've been through. She feels unimportant and invisible. She has gone to extreme measures to lose weight and be the picture of what she thinks everyone else wants her to be. She has failed more times than not.
You need to hear how wonderful you are. You can do this. Dig deep into your soul and become who you are. You are strong and capable. And you may not feel it, but you are beautiful too. Don't give up on yourself.
Loved partnering with the @mbcocala team at @hopeinocala this week, partnering together so that many can discover HOPE in Christ! @mbcocala, thanks for investing in our DREAM Teams—we are better together! 👊🏽 #SameTeam
Motivation, like showering, is recommended daily. Slightly different angle but the progress is there! What a wonderful gift it is to see what your body is truly capable of. #BCarterFit#crawlifyouhaveto#cantversuswont
I’m replacing my reality with all the pictures I took, if you want to know how deep the embarrassment runs, it’s to shame.
The pictures say nothing so I let them hang, the box they made, is to remain empty.
Those I knew don’t give any validity to me, ‘cos of what they’ve done to me.
They did it to themselves, they turn away, to help themselves.
All this splendor, all this morning daylight, all these picturesque beach views, foggy days opening onto lakeview.
Finding the perfect excuse, as they sit me at the feast, they tell me to eat.
Everyone has what they want,I’m losing my appetite.
Asking to be excused, it’s like a holiday, like a free day, I’m too confused to know what to do.
Someone calls my silence and refusal rude.
I’ll limit my choice even more in another lifetime.
Even laughs, amused by what I do, like a child, as if I didn’t know the consequence.
Everyone’s holding each other closer, staring with sad and fixed eyes, to ask me why, but they knew every reply, I had already applied. It was all too absurd to explain.
They demanded I beg, but I replied, this is the way I am, and they cried, holding each other closer, finding their release in the endless progression, their inevitable procession.
The murdered and the deceased, blurring at the next feast.
I had to slip away.
I have so much to write on this post, but I'll just leave it at this: Go After What You Love and Want Passionately.
I'm still a work in Progress and on the self discovery path..

Morning Intention: To see self-righteousness as a distortion of the truth, and to notice when it arises in me.
We live in an age of constant self-disclosure. Some of that self-disclosure is a response to historical feelings of being silenced, and in that way it is good that people are speaking their truths. But there is a way that speech — particularly when it is amplified by the Internet — can turn self-disclosure into self-righteousness: the desire not only to have a voice, but to have a louder, more correct, and more praised voice than others do. I notice this tendency in myself sometimes, particularly when I am feeling wounded. The pain comes out, but then it becomes something else: judgment, competition, intentional misunderstanding of others, etc. There is some truth, but a lot of falsehood mixed in with it.
The Buddha called forms of thinking that are not rooted in the bodily experience "becoming," because that's what those kinds of thoughts do: they take us out of the truth of our bodily experience and cause that truth to become something else. This is why, he said, the end of all suffering starts with mindfulness of the body. If emotional pain is arising and you can feel that pain in your body, you can be honest and expressive. But if the pain gets into your head and becomes a story, it is bound to become something else — something that causes more pain.
So here's the practice: Today, when you notice self-righteousness arising in you, bring your awareness to your heart and try to feel the pain in being self-righteous. You don't need to pity yourself or excuse anyone else's bad behavior. Just say to yourself: "I want to find the truth of my suffering and let everything else fall away." You yourself deserve to be free of self-righteousness most of all.
So much benefit in these simple yet powerful poses /// resting in Childs Pose /// Yoga itself might not unf^*k a world gone mad, however: it gives us strength & perspective so we might become the change we hope to see take place /// Revolution On The Inside
“today marks the day i return home to myself. that i begin the long journey that will be learning to trust in my own power again—to engage life, be light, and stand confidently in my own skin. and when i arrive, i will move gently through each dark, narrow room, and proudly draw back the curtains.” - @beautaplin • d r a w t h e c u r t a i n s
“GOD said, “My presence will go with you. I will see the journey to the end.” Thank you Lord for the journey. The dark nights that brought light in the morning. The loneliness that brought me closer to you. The pain that lead to strength and the silence that made me long for your presence. ❤️ #becoming
