Lungs open. Eyes closed.
Still in the process of recovering from my wisdom teeth removal. I'm thankful that I was able to spend some time in the studio tonight (after spending most of the day sleeping, of course). Hopefully, my energy levels will pick up over the next few days, so I can return to the normal activities I do in the gym. 🙏🏼🙌🏼
This song is extremely resonant with me right now. There’s so much that’s currently happening in our world that it’s easy to get overwhelmed. It’s important that we not only keep breathing, but also start doing. We need to be present in our daily lives, spread love, stand up for one another, and take action. If we don’t, who will?
Ahhh. #doterra#breathevaporstick to the rescue for sure tonight. Lexi was fine when I saw her after school but an hour after I left them they called saying that she was having a bit of trouble breathing & they couldn't find her inhaler. I could see on FaceTime that she was gonna be ok but I had Kailey find the #breathe stick & Lexi was quickly better. (Scroll to see more Breathe products.) She could have used any & all of those but the stick is handy & has coconut oil so it's easy to roll on. She's got sensitive skin so that is another reason it is great for her & all kids. It's great to be a grandma that can breathe easy tonight knowing that they are fine. (Doug was at work & Talia had taken babies to the grocery store.). Another reason I'm breathing easy tonight is that they are BOTH thrilled to be in Jr High & High school! (9th & 7th). Whew. Both have had on & off struggles the past 2 years, and that was the best news I've heard in awhile. 👍😀What a relief! #essentialoil to the rescue. 🌿🍃🌱#breatheeasy#naturalsolutions are best #betterbreathing ☺️
and during the days that I had felt completely numb and empty inside, you were there to hug this feeling of warmth back into my fragile body. and when I began over thinking everything like I always do, you were there to reassure me that you'd always be there and nothing bad would ever happen to us. all the nights I woke up crying from the nightmares, I could always find you right beside me or just a phone call away and you would tell me it was just a dream and didn't mean anything. and when I started breaking down more often and shutting people out, you always found a way back into my broken heart.
• thank you, love
she takes long showers because its the only time she feels warm. if she sleeps too much or more than usual its because she's in pain and doesn't want to face her problems. when she chews on her thumb it means she's nervous or upset. don't let her scratch her wrists because then the scabs will open up and she'll start bleeding through her sleeves. make sure she eats or at least drinks some water because a lot of the time she forgets how to take care of herself. don't point out that her hair is a mess and that she's worn the same outfit for several days, she's just got other things to worry about. if she stops talking in the middle of a sentence don't bother asking her what she was saying, she won't remember.
• a word of advice
Why don't you love me?
Tell me, baby, why don't you love me
When I make me so damn easy to love?...
I got beauty, I got heart
Keep my head in them books, I'm sharp
But you don't care to know I'm smart...
Yes life. Be thankful for it. Embrace all it has to offer you. Knock on closed doors, and jump for the ones out of your reach. Do the things people said you could not. You can. Be gracious and kind. Smile at people that pass you on the street. Laugh so hard your belly hurts. And love. Love indefinitely. It's the reason behind every facet that keeps us going. Ive never met so many incredible people over the last few years, that have made me fall in love with life a little more everyday.
