My very first class in Spanish was a success! I'm getting there - soon, my website, ebooks, and classes will be available in Spanish! 😍 I'm super grateful for all the open minded women in Puerto Vallarta who are demanding change around all their points of views and belief systems on sexuality and femininity. What else is possible? 💜
S a t u r d a y 💝 my Grandpa. He talked about being in the war, Grandma, pranks he was a part of as a kid, the different trips they took me along on & my reactions to those places, places he and his wife like to go now, people who still ask about me, things I did as a kid, and his golf game and that one time I almost got a hole in one and how everybody was cheering. I recorded some of what he was saying because when I get to the end of days like yesterday it's so hard to take a step back and remember everything I want to about the time. 😀 It is so interesting to see 4 generations interact, at least within my family. All in all he's just like he was when I was a kid. Very encouraging to everyone, he hands out compliments in such a sincere way you can't help but smile and think they might actually be true, and he keeps a positive attitude. As a kid when I would talk to him on the phone the first thing we'd always ask each other is, "how are you?". He would always say, "Excellent!" in an upbeat, energetic tone regardless of circumstances & on the rare occasion he didn't say excellent, he would say either Wonderful or Great with just as much enthusiasm.
International Stammering Awareness Day
I liken stammering to that @apple laptop rainbow wheel of death - something is loading but nothing is fucking happening 😂 - seriously though, stammering can start at an early age and for children it can be seriously tough. When you're young all you want to do is express yourself, so when you are suppressed in some way it's hard work.
Roughly 1% of the population stammer - literally nothing. As I've gotten older I've learned to embrace mine to the max and actually it's a big part of my identity today. People who stammer often fear judgement and have a high level of anxiety. So raising awareness is important. Spread the love, be kind to those who struggle to communicate, and if you are a stammerer, don't let it control you, learn to control it. Peace ✌🏼
I was dreaming of bigger things and wanna leave my own life behind..
Not a yes sir, not a follower
"Fit the box, fit the mold
Have a seat in the foyer, take a number"
I was lightning before the thunder...

2yrs ago I weighed 26st & was totally unfit, I trained hard over the last year & got down to 17st for my 1st major spine surgery to lift my head back up after it fused....7wks after surgery I was back to training which is really unheard of but I did it....its now 14wks since surgery & I've been able to add more muscle & strength to my body & I weigh 16.5st. I've just added a cable pull down machine which I'll use for the next 2wks before I go for my 2nd major spine surgery (this time to straighten my spine to give me a nice posture)....I'll then be out of action for a few weeks but hopefully I'll be back to training, utilise my home gym as I begin to rehab and then fingers crossed transition to a proper gym by the end of the year.....2 years ago I had a totally deformed spine and was seriously unfit and fat......my goal is to do the impossible and transform myself from somebody severely disabled to someone who looks not just normal but it great physical shape. My body has responded really well so far (some due to muscle memory from my years of training before I got unwell) & I now feel better than I've felt in over 12yrs......keep pushing, believe in yourself and never give up....embrace life y'all👍 #weightloss#bodytransformation#training#embracelife#ankylosingspondylitis#spinalsurgery#necksurgery#surgery#brighterfuture#fitness#spine#exercise#embracelife
Just let it go.. The more we try to control something, the more it controls us.
Free yourself and let things take their own natural course. You will surprised at how amazing life is when you choose to trust the process and come from a place of love and light.
Yesterday is gone - you can't control what happened. Tomorrow hasn't even happened - you can't control what is going to happen.
All we will ever have is this present moment and all we can do is to accept it and enjoy it. All there ever is and all there ever will be is this present moment and it is when we start to really live in the present moment that we can begin to make beautiful and lasting transformations that will touch the world around you.
You were not born to become a prisoner of your own thoughts. You were born to thrive, live and grow lovingly.
So learn to accept things as they are and you will be at peace and you will be free. I believe in you.

Today I went and learnt a new craft. I loved it. Met some lovely ladies and ate beautiful home made cake. As my gorgeous friend Cass from @coral_and_cactus pointed out, it was the quietest she'd ever seen me. I was too busy concentrating 😂 It will be a grocery bag when I finish. I was a bit nervous before I went because I knew it would be challenging and didn't want to look silly, and being a lefty I am back to front to everyone 😜so applied some balance and took it with me. I also took Lavender Peace so I could mix the two together if I really had a meltdown moment but I didn't need it. I survived and came out alive and kicking. It's energising and good for the soul to try new things and meet new people. Thanks ladies I had a great day ❤️#coral_and_cactus#doterra#womeninbusiness#diy#craft#crochet#oils#supportsmallbusiness#embracelife

Story of my life (2/2)
Five years back, I started travelling and I didn’t stop till now. It makes me forget negative issues of my life and I am filled with more happiness than before. I find peace in travelling.
I am an introvert though, but that doesn’t bother me at all. Once I am out of that zone, I am a different person. That’s how I realised, shifting to mountains will bring a big difference and indeed it helped. I am not a cry baby anymore. I can sleep peacefully and can fight my fears on my own. I am still fighting for it. For when sometimes, I cry like a baby and suffocate myself inside a pillow, I feel like dying to finish off my problems. But I don’t do it. I have told myself to sleep over all the problems. Just sleep and next day will be a new day.
I have been blessed with a habit of forgetfulness. So I mostly forget stuff and start next day afresh. I read Osho and it’s working for me. I read lots of quotes, thanks to Pinterest. I keep myself busy in work, and when not working I go out for a walk or sit amidst forest. I haven’t had any treatment yet, but I have strong belief that this can be healed on its own and I am trying my best to do it. Himalayas keep you blessed no matter what.
I am in a better place now. An year back, trip to Spiti Valley, made me more strong. I don’t know how, don’t know why. That place has some energy; the whole valley is filled with positivity. Nothing major life changing happened with me, but yes, I owe Spiti a lot for whatever I am doing now. I took major steps in last one year, which was so unlike me. I have great friends around who keep on motivating me, if in case I start feeling low. My siblings are best counsellors, I have ever had. So, not giving up is the key to fight depression.
Thank you @oldschoolbastard for this initiative. Much love and hugs 😘
