If you need me, I'll be here...or here... enjoying quiet times with wind chimes, bee buzz, and leaf speak...Mike's ukulele wafting along the breeze. Downtime between Qigong, sweaty/spiritual Vinyasa, and restorative yoga. Happy to share the Despacho ceremony tonight. And we have a treat from the gorgeous @wicozani_yoga_alorha_ 🎶💜🎶When you forget how to slow down, Sagrada will help you (me!) remember. 🙏🏻 .
I saw this beautiful flower on a fire escape while walking Pelu this morning and it reminded me to make the best you can with what you have. 🌺 Ok so you have a fire escape? Make it an urban oasis. You got a windowsill, how about a mini succulent in a pot? No matter what your space or circumstance, we can create small moments of beauty and peace. I'm recommitting to doing just that. ☺️🌺
this past month I’ve explored incredible places and I’ve met so many extraordinary people. everyone that I met seemed to have left in search of something - whether it be inspiration, motivation, freedom, independence, or to mend a broken heart. for me, I was searching for myself. my past led me to question/doubt core parts of who I am, leaving me incredibly lost and disconnected to myself for a long time. I was hesitant to even go on this trip because I thought my toxic state of mind would prevent me from living fully. but I was wrong - it was exactly what I needed.
I found that I had to stop searching outside myself for answers. I found that the only thing that ever really matters in this life is the love that you extend - to yourself, to friends, to strangers, and to this whole damn world. give out as much love as you possibly can and it's going to come right back to you.
thank you to everyone I met along the way for sharing so much of your lives with me and for showing me so much love. the way I see myself, the world, and my plans going forward - it’s changed everything.
I feel brand new.
Happiness is a choice, not a result. Nothing will make you happy until you choose to be happy. No person will make you happy unless you decide to be happy. Your happiness will not come to you. It can only come from you. 🙏😊🕉
🌲🍃🍀Environmental Wellness-a person recognizes the responsibility to preserve, protect and improve the environment and appreciates the interconnections of nature and the individual. -
I personally recommend getting out doors. It improves your mental health and physical health. You will feel refreshed and ready to conquer any task after a nice hike through the woods or any green space. -

PRIVATE LUXURY VILLA IN MARRAKESH
I am very honoured to be staying at a beautiful villa on a private estate in Marrakesh. It is an oasis of serenity and calm a few kilometres away from the hustle and bustle of Jemma el Fna with its array of colourful souks, medinas and hawker stalls.
The people are the best part of everything. They're what make your businesses, sororities, fraternities, athletic teams, work teams, family, friend groups, church, & _(fill in the blank)_ as meaningful as they are. If you don't like the people, you will never experience the pinnacle of your abilities. You will never grow into the person, leader, player, friend, athlete, Christian, or _(fill in the blank)_ you could be.
Don't be fooled- you need people in your life who have your back, who motivate/encourage/affirm, and challenge you. It's only because of all of these things I am where I am and who I am today..... the most incredible part??? I'm not done yet. 😘
Depth. Love. Friendship. 💛
Our golden doodle, Dupree, gave us quite the scare the other day. We didn't even know he had escaped, or was missing, when I received a call from the vet. A car of teenage girls had brought him into the vet after they saw a car hit him and drive away☹️ Thankfully he has no serious injuries, just a small limp and minor abrasions. He's back to his usual activities of eating the kids food and stealing used tissues out of the garbages🤢 As much as his garbage eating habits drive me nuts, we're all happy he's still with us💕And, kudos to those teenage girls for lifting our 90lb dog!
#thekitchenidiot 👩🏻🍳 was 'allowed' back into the kitchen today 🙄 (and by 'allowed' I mean that I didn't hear anyone say, "Get back upstairs to your room!" 😆), so I made myself a late lunch. It the first time I made any food for myself since getting #shingles a week ago, besides stirring up a protein shake or grabbing a spoon of peanut butter. So I'm feeling quite accomplished today! 😜. A Kitchen Idiot meal has to be 1) healthy 2) very few ingredients 3) easy to make. This turned out very yummy! If I had an avocado and some tomatoes on hand, I would have added those. As it was, I double toasted a slice of low sodium Ezekiel bread (to make it good n crunchy), drizzled olive oil onto the toast (when it's still hot is best just because it's so satisfying to hear the oil sizzle! 😄) Then I sprinkled the toast with shredded cheese. I cooked the egg over easy in olive oil and seasoned it with ground black pepper and Himalayan pink rock salt and broke the egg enough to allow the yolk to flow out. It was a good start back in the kitchen and I'm thrilled to be on the mend!! ☺️💪🏼👌🏼😋🍽 Do any of you eat #ezekielbread ?? 🍞🌾 #embracingyourgrace

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 💕When my Mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer, we immediately immersed ourselves into research of the disease and different avenues of treatment. We were introduced to a holistic healer that had been helping people like my Mother heal themselves through various alternative therapy programs. This is where my Mother and I were introduced to Doterra essential oils and immediately fell in love. This is why I am so passionate about Doterra and their integrity as a company. Many of the regiments that they introduced to us included extensive detoxification programs and the use of Doterra essential oils and supplements. Due to the sourcing and testing we were instructed to ONLY use certified Doterra products. I am so thankful for Doterra not only for sourcing the purest products but for making these powerful essential oils available to us at a fair price. ✨In honor of Breast cancer awareness month, I wanted to share with you an easy, effective way to keep the tissue and lymph nodes in your breast and underarms detoxified.
Breast Detox✨ •Apply 2-4 drops Frankincense oil to each breast twice daily for 30 days. •Do Detox two to four times per year. Use a carrier oil for easier distribution. •As I prefer to use frankincense, Eucalyptus and grapefruit are also excellent for breast health.
Ladies!!! If you haven't done a breast Detox you NEED to get on it. This is critical to maintaining optimum breast health, especially if you are still using synthetic deodorants everyday. 🙅🏻 #Detox#breastcancerawareness#breasthealth#preventative#health#beyourownadvocate

The baby shampoo produced by Johnson & Johnson contains one extremely harmful cancer- causing ingredient, called Quaternium-15, which releases formaldehyde, another known carcinogen that can accumulate on the skin of your child over time.
Furthermore, the products of this manufacturer also include another toxin, 1,4-dioxane. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, this toxin causes vertigo, skin irritations, liver damage, headaches, and drowsiness.
Johnson & Johnson finally admitted this and reported that they are currently working on the elimination of these toxic compounds from their products sold in America, but no one can know with certainty the duration of this process.
However, look at it this way: would you continue buying their products even though they can be so harmful, and financially support this company that knowingly posed a risk to your health and the health of your dearest ones?
Johnson & Johnson products which do not contain toxins are sold in Denmark, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Japan, and South Africa. Apparently, parents in America will need to wait for who known how long to purchase these safe alternatives.

Everyone needs a little Peppermint in their lives 🍬And a little Lilly💕 Peppermint was the first oil I've ever used and a daily oil I still use. I love the versatility and the instant effect this cooling oil brings so many people
Enjoyed our morning volunteering for @csuinc at their headquarters in South LA for NYU's alumni weekend! Loved sharing info about this great organization and their efforts to make fresh, local, organic, and affordable produce accessible to everyone with the local community ❤️
