It's official! January 2018 I am going back to school. 20 years ago I used to watch the Cut Above students on Queen St and wish I was cool enough to join their gang and brave enough to try. I've realised that I was always cool enough (geek chic is way cool) and today I was finally brave enough. #20yearsinthemaking#brave#terrified#cantwait#maturestudent
Sometimes I wonder if by sharing my story if I made the right decision because deep down I just want to be fully accepted for me! Not accepted for being fat or fit! Not if I'm a mom or married to a fire Chief and especially not if I am dealing with #PD or #PTSD it's hard to admit and be so open. BUT the truth is I no longer had the strength to suppress my trials because I was bursting at the seems. And after a friend took her life I knew I had to speak out! Not because of bravery but rather a deep concern to help others reach out! I didn't expect complete strangers to embrace me or say I'm strong. I don't feel strong, not always. What I do feel is passion! A passion to fight this and either learn to manage and accept or overcome. Only time will tell what plays out in my next unwritten chapter of life. For now I will fight, accept and love each new day that I can be here and help others to know it WILL GET BETTER! #lvnfit

Back at it again..mine dager fremover..😔 -Allah's Qadr, det som er skrevet ned for deg vil komme frem til deg uansett hva. And this day came for me also. Denne prosessen har vært vanskelig, men glad for støtten jeg har fått fra mine nære og kjære siden dag 1. You're the real ones💕 Livet er for kort til å være misfornøyd. Vær glad, tilgi og glem, respekter og elsk. Og ikke minst, gjør så mye ibadah du kan 🌸 dine dager er begrenset og tiden din er skrevet ned. Alle vil bli testet, og det på så mange måter du ikke kunne tenk deg engang. Noen ganger værre enn noe annet, man føler seg svak, man vil bare gi opp og finner ingen utvei. Og da er det Sabr som gjelder. Ha Sabr (tålmodighet). For uten den vil du aldri klare deg gjennom noe. Smil, det var Allah's planer. Alhamdulillah for all lærdommen jeg får gjennom denne testen, hvem som er dine ekte, islam, alt. "Never a believer is stricken with a discomfort, an illness, an anxiety, a grief, a mental worry or even the pricking of a thorn but Allah will expiate his sins on account of his patience" - Prophet ﷺ
Found it • I like to sleep train from 2 months old. It's been complicated with Anker working out his "sleepy signals" because his "I'm hungry""I need winding" & "I'm tired" are all the same ... go figure!!! This poor muma thought he was just needing cluster feeding but it made his reflux a nightmare till one day I was like nup arms are sore. I swaddled him and put him down in his bed for a breather. Well next minute he's out cold happy as Larry asleep. He has the same self soothing technique as Skyla did this age and that's sucking his fist. Not only is it super cute but it's comforting for him as he picks when and doesn't worry me in the least because it's just a progression phase. Skyla's is now a funny noise while twiddling her hair.
When you take @lexxi_hype_dance_fit Soca class then take @anandi_the_trainer Zumba class and still stay after both classes and dance longer because the equation is just that simple.... Have fun make it your own and burn them calories #brave
