I know it's a bit late in the day for a #mondaymotivation post, but this is still as relevant as ever, and is something that I try to remind myself of again and again, to take any of the pressure that society has unfairly piled upon me off. So, happy Monday everyone, we've almost made it to wine time! #thereisnosetpath
My one and single goal every single day!! I wake up with a purpose. No matter in what way it can be fitness, life in general, personal, being a friend, someone who listen I want everyday a least make the difference in one person life’s! Is I accomplish that everyday I have done my part!
Make it your goal to make a positive impact on people’s life’s everyday, it can be as simple as a smile! 😉
Ask your self “ Im completing my purpose in life? If you not sure is time re-evaluate your self and start making changes!
Be you, be unique be different! 💎
One of the best dive briefings ever to get me excited about my favorite cenote (on my dive bucket list) this week:
I got to swim through multiple haloclines (where fresh water meets salt water), experience sulphur clouds underwater (twice), and see thousands of stalactites & stalagmites.
At this cenote, I swam through a halocline at 60ft and then I played with the sulphur clouds that were thinly multi-layered at 100ft with my hands and ascend through them as well. We rested at a small opening at one end of the cave at 40ft with our lights off to experience the magnitude of the cave and see the sunlight shine in to illuminate the beautiful blue waters of this cenote. On every dive, one of the things that always goes through my mind is what this prehistoric cave must have been like when it was once not filled with water millions of years ago.
🙏🏽 My absolute favorite part was having such a professional & knowledgeable instructor who was an expert at diving these caves and timing. We arrived right at opening and had the entire cenote to ourselves. It made a world of a difference as there were no other divers with flashlights in the cenotes and/or bubbles around. Truly, a rare & spectacular dive experience I will never forget. 🙏🏽
🤞🏽👌🏽 I’m definitely getting my cave certification one day. It’s a 10-day course with 14 dives. The recommended pre-requisite is to obtain my side-mount certification first. So 2 more certifications to add on my to-do list. ✅✅
💥🔥 Most Powerful Women 💥🔥 Was für ein Panel, 😍 alleine dafür hat sich die Reise gelohnt. 🙏🏼 Was gibt es schöneres als seiner Familie etwas wiedergeben zu können... den Eltern, die einen immer alles ermöglicht haben- einfach mal Danke zu sagen. 😘 Es geht nicht um große Geschenke, sondern einfach Zeit zu haben: gemeinsam in den Urlaub fahren oder die Eltern mal in ein Wellnesshotel zu schicken! Schließlich haben sie uns auch so viel ermöglicht 💛🙏🏼 Wie schön wäre es, nie wieder Montag zu haben, die Freiheit zu haben WANN, WO & MIT WEM man arbeiten möchte? 🤗😍 Die Kinder später mal aufwachsen zu sehen und alles für sich und seine Familie möglich zu machen? Grade wir Frauen haben so ein Potential 🙌🏼 entfaltet eure Möglichkeiten, kämpft für eure Träume und schränkt euch nicht ein, erst recht nicht durch andere 👊🏼 Die Familie sollte keine Ausrede sein, die Extrameile zu gehen- sondern der Antrieb warum du deine Träume verfolgst um für dich und deine Familie ein besseres Leben zu ermöglichen. 💪🏼👪💛 #FitBodyFactory#GoPro2017#realtalk#whatsyourdream#followyourheart#nevergiveup#believeinyourself#followyourdream#bethankful#humble#mylife#freedom#workforit#goforit#independentwoman#business#businesswoman#bestbusiness#bestoftheday
"You will never be able to escape from your heart. So it is better to listen to what it has to say." ~The Alchemist~ 💖✨💖✨💖 Bittersweet day today as I'm about to take my favorite instructor @kjoylipson last class in Houston. About this time 3 years ago I was in a VERY dark place in my life. I had just found yoga and it was helping me get by. I had also just started a meditation practice and the only way to keep my thoughts from racing was to focus on single words and repeat them over and over in my head. One of those words was Joy. I was living a life where I felt no Joy in anything anymore and it wasn't how I wanted to live. A few months into my practice (at JOY yoga center 😉) in walks Joy Lipson to sub her first class ever in Houston. This girls light and passion was unlike anything I'd ever experienced before and I was hooked. I could go on and on about all the ways she inspired me but in a nutshell she inspired me to follow my heart and live a life full of Joy, passion and love. Joy, you've been a MAJOR inspiration for me as a yoga teacher. A big reason why I became one. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for setting this girls soul on fire. The road wasn't easy but I now live a life I'm passionate about and is filled with JOY every single day. You will be missed immensely in Houston but I'm so proud and inspired by what you're about to do in Dallas. You better believe this girl will be there for your first class at BSY Dallas! 😊💖🙏🏻🤸🏼♀️✨ #joy#houstonyoga#houstonyogis#thealchemist#followyourheart#yogaeverydamnday#practiceandalliscoming#yogainspiration#blackswanyoga#bsyhouston
Today was a strange mix of emotions, and I’m lying here in bed awake, thinking about the last 6 weeks and what has happened...my heart is so full of love, my head so inspired and my face hurts from smiling so much ☺️💕🙏🏻 I’ve fallen in love with this place, the people, the women I have had the privilege to teach and learn from everyday, the culture and way of life here. You know when you’re doing the right thing for you when your heart and soul are aligned and you wake up everyday inspired to do better than the day before 🙌💯 If something’s been nagging at you or you’ve been talking about something you want to do for a while now, please just go and do it! Make it happen! Life is too short to be anything else than ridiculously happy 💕💕💕Here’s a few snaps from our lunch we arranged with the women for my last day volunteering xxx
Ohhhh take me away now.... just few months away from my tropical paradise. What is it about travel, adventure, seeking mysteries around each corner, empowering solo women travelers, finding yourself, meeting new people, experiencing life. My life is an adventure full of living in the Now and appreciating all I have. I'm grateful for the life I've been given. I'm not where I was... not where I need to be yet but how I'm enjoying the learning process of the Now the present moment. I'm thankful and grateful for the life I have at this very moment. I've learned so much about myself this past year. I'm growing and getting stronger each day. I'm ok. I can only follow my heart and dreams. One day soon I will be where I'm supposed to be. I know it will be soon I can feel it. Namaste #ocean#oceanview#oceanvibes#sandybeach#travel#tropicalparadise

Happy New Day My Friends 🤗🌻🤗🌻..
For the past month or so every morning when I got up I would get big time butterflies in my stomach and for the past week it didn't happen at all 🤔 Until today 😮 this morning there was a huge colony of butterflies in my stomach as I walked towards the bus 😮🙃😮 and I immediately started laughing because it hit me as to why it was happening 😮.
Since I brought the bus home and started converting it... Every morning I got excited about what I was going to be doing in the bus that day... Excitement butterflies 😄😄 and each day as I watched the transformation take place the butterflies went from tiny ones to the massive colony that is in my stomach today and it's because the bus is almost done and my dream and journey is literally right around the corner 😱😱😱.
Am I excited? Yes!! Am I a tad scared? HELL YES I AM!!!! This is A HUGE life change for me.... Something I've never ever done in many ways and yet it's also been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember 😮😮....
Life keeps moving no matter what and life changes happen too... Yet if changing gets to scary, we allow the fear to takeover what we want to do... So do not let fear stop you from living all your dreams... Cause it will be very scary at first yet after you do it you'll realize it wasn't as scary as it seemed😮🙃😮.
