Years ago my sweet friend @marielleadriana drew this for me, in my old Bible. I had it placed in my current Bible, and a few days ago Rhodes pulled it out. How true is that little saying, especially this time of year. There is so much joy, hope and anticipation that the Christmas season reminds us of. I love it.
Love and be loved.. it's what makes the world go round
‘Life is not about how many breathes you take but about the moments that take your breath away.’ -Maya Angelou. Words fail me at this time for the gratitude in my heart for my family and best friends who went the extra mile this year to make my birthday the best yet! Between my children’s kisses, all the amazing texts and messages, Ash and Paul cooking the most amazing dinner, Chelsey bringing over ornaments and decorating my tree (and being Barclays personal shopper and delivery girl 😂), and Barclay, who is over 7,000 miles away, but still managed to intoxicate me with his beautiful kindness. Thank you friends!! I’m not sure if I’ve ever felt so loved ❤️ #happy#peace#contentment#joy#love#family#friends#kindness#birthday#34#34years#moments#treasure#grateful#girlfriends#bff#bf#giveback#nottodaysatan @housewife2hostess @barclayburns
Fear will try to cheat you out of the best things in your life. As you get older you realize how much of your time you’ve wasted trying to prepare for the worst. When we feel afraid, stressed, overwhelmed- it’s not only that we fill our plate too full of heavy thoughts, irrational imaginations, or too many challenges, it’s that we leave our plate too empty of the things that bring us real joy. I’m filling my plate with more of what really matters, and going back for thirds. #fear#overthinking#loveyourself#peace#contentment
Beggars cannot be choosers. When we're desperate, we will take anything. When we're not, we get picky. The same happens in relationships. When we first meet, we are mesmerized by each other. We overlook all the flaws and accept each other as is: the good, the bad, and the ugly. When we’re full, we become more selective and picky. We discover our taste buds and realize that "this" is NOT what we crave. The moral of this story is to NEVER court when hungry. Eat then greet.
عند الجوع، نأكل التين بقشره دون تمييز . نقبل الحلو و المر. (الجوعان ياكل الزلط) لأنك لا تملك أن تكون "شحاذ و مشارط" و عند الشبع نبدأ بتقشير التين و رمي القشر و نكتفي بأكل اللب الحلو فقط لأننا نكتشف فجأة أن هذا ما يهواه القلب و المعدة. هكذا العلاقات بين البشر تبدأ بشهر عسل و تنتهي بدهر بصل ! أمامك خيارين: عليك أن لا تشبع. خليك جوعان أحسن و كُل التين بقشره لِما بقي من عمرك. أو عليك بأن لا تُقدِم على الزواج و أنت جوعان لانك ستشبع ذات يوم و تدرك أن ما قبلته على جوع لن تقبله على شبع. نصيحة لوجه الله، لا تتزوج عالريق. تزوج و إنت شبعان عشان تعيش "قنعان" أو خليك جوعان و عيش وَلهان

Be quiet and listen to the wisdom of the body. Move slowly through the practice. Breathe deeply. Notice what you notice and feel what’s coming up. In this moment, Accept what is; for tomorrow will bring its own challenges and joys. Be content through it all.

I’m happy when I eat fresh fruits,when I burst out laughing,when I discover a new song,when I finish a good book,I’m glad to have friends and family,a home,food when I’m hungry.I’m flattered when people compliment me,when people smile at me,when people are polite to me.i do not have time to be sad everyday and ungrateful;I have every reason in the world to be happy 🍷👸 #grateful#selflove#innerpeace#contentment#freespirit#glow #
