Let's just be honest here - the struggle is REAL when you have so many ideas and are working a million miles a minute! But when you hit a bump, the best thing you can do is step away. Go for a walk, #indulge in whatever helps you escape your own genius mind.
What's your favourite book?⠀
I have so many! But this one, If on a Winter's Night a Traveler by Italo Calvino, is definitely on my list.⠀
It's ultimately a book about reading, books, conspiracy and much, much more.⠀
If you haven't read it, maybe the fact that it was on the Telegraph's 100 novels everyone should read list, might convince you.⠀
Either way, if you're looking for a good book, consider this one.⠀
Do you have any good book recommendations?
This is for those who want to be supportive of your football team but none of their signs really go with your home decor... 🤷🏻♀️ check out my fb post if you're interested I only have a couple for purchase (must be local).
What's your weakness?⠀
Mine's sweet things.⠀
Oh, my goodness. Give me a sweetie or a biscuit or a piece of cake and I'll be your friend for life. Give me all three and you'll never get rid of me.⠀
Now you know why I'm a runner!⠀
I've tried being healthy, the not eating sweets thing.⠀
Hah! Life's too short.⠀
I mean, I've cut down. I don't shovel refined sugars down my gullet like I once did. And, to be honest, moving across the globe to Canada I have learned that on this side of the pond there is sugar in EVERYTHING. Even for me, it's too much.⠀
And so, I've cut out the sugar in my tea. I don't eat it during the day. I don't eat as many sweeties as I used to and I try not to eat processed foods.⠀
I feel better for it, I really do.⠀
But, make me go past a proper cake shop, and I'm still going to have to go in!⠀
What's the one thing you just can't help yourself with?

There is something about truth that makes it easily recognizable by all who are searching for it with open minds.
Cookie mogul Wally Amos is fond of quoting the saying, “The mind is like a parachute. It functions best when opened.” When you open your mind to the possibilities, objectively analyze information, and refuse to allow your personal preferences and biases to influence your judgment, you will be able to perceive great truths that have been overlooked by others. A closed mind, though, will cause you to miss out on some of life’s greatest offerings. If you find yourself disputing the facts, or if you keep attempting to revise them to support your beliefs, ask yourself, “Why am I so unwilling to accept this information? Am I being logical, or am I simply allowing my emotions to cloud my judgment?” The worst mistake you may ever make is trying to persuade yourself to accept a false truth. It is inappropriate to try to fool others, but when you fool yourself, disaster is sure to follow.
Thank you for this guidance @sabi_5ingh
Birthday adventures! Received home-cooked breakfast in bed of pancakes, soyrizo-rice-veggies, and hash browns. Then off to the beach! Afterwards, he treated me to vegan pizza, rose lemonade, and vegan ice cream cake from Whole Foods before I left to teach my yoga class. This is a beautiful age to be single, life is GRAND, and blessings are abundant! 🌟🙏🏾❤️

To the teacher who wouldn't write me a recommendation letter:
I went to community college for the first couple years and then I went to a 4 year for 2 1/2 years. I started off rough, when I have a change in my life I'm very quiet and observant. Throughout the years, I started showing my true self. I met great friends and met so many new people. But my anxiety gets in the way. Looking back, I wish I would have put myself out there like my classmates did, but I was too nervous. My last year of college, is when I had my mental breakdown. It wasn't until my last semester where I really lost it. I wasn't always going to school, I'd be five minutes away from school and freak out. I couldn't go. I was failing that class, my teacher was nice enough to give me an extension until the spring and I worked really hard to get all my hours done.
I was lost. I was looking for a job and I had asked my teacher for a recommendation letter and she said no. She said I was failing my class and was unreliable. I agree with her, I understand where she was coming from. But she never even asked why I wasn't doing well in my class, she just said no. It hurt me so much and it put me in even worse state of mind. She had known me for a couple years and I had done well in every semester except my last semester.
But looking back, I thank that teacher. It was someone who didn't believe in me, someone who thought I wouldn't do well in my profession that made me want me to do well. Because someone thought that, I wanted to prove to myself and anyone else who didn't believe in me, that I could do it.
So thank you to the teacher who didn't give me a recommendation letter, because I pushed myself to prove that teacher and anyone else who didn't support me, wrong. I got an A in the class I was failing, I did a third internship and now I have a full time job in my field. I may have bad days, but I can only go up from here.
Never let anyone hold you back, I pray that you find the courage to continue your dream/goal, even if someone isn't supporting you. I truly, truly believe that everything happens for a reason.
It was such a treat running into the Executive Director of the ITC at the UTSA graduate school orientation. She's such an inspiration and to know that she's pursuing her doctoral while at the helm of an amazing organization, well, that's just incredible. Guess that means I better shape up! Grad school, here I come! #bosslady#graduatestudent#utsagradstudents#sisepuede#latergram

"I look at where I'm at today and realize that most of my success is owed to the mentors that was in my life." Kendrick Lamar 💁🏽 At the job they say find a mentor. How about for life?! My mentor has prayed for me, danced with me, worshiped with me, traveled with me, wiped tears with me and laughed with me. She showed me how to balance a demanding career (bosslady Assistant County Manager of Arlington Co., VA), family, and volunteer duties. I just love her to life and have to salute her for #wcw#publicservants#sisterfriends#dancers#mit#uva#womenleaders#womeninbusiness#bosslady
Working hard a new project while also packing to head back to college TOMORROW. I'm super excited and ready to kick off this semester and upcoming fall season. However, I'm STILL struggling with overpacking and have no idea what to do. I just /feel/ like I need everything despite knowing I don't. Ahhhh, hoping it all fits! 🙌🏻🙃 p.s. pic is my first attempt at a flat lay and I'm pretty proud 😏
